Mr. Strange, how much does the average building cost to make in the game?

That's not really something that costs "per-building." If I were to hire a competent artist to make buildings, I'd be looking at ~$45,000 or so. Probably get a few hundred buildings out of that contract.

Giant Monster Planet

Giant Monsters Unleashed
Grand Monster Battle Royale


I think these are all good, but none are quite good enough. I'm encouraged that everyone seems to be thinking along the same general lines though. That's good!

That's not so bad. I'd consider it a worthy price. I always thought the arenas were some of the best aspects of the Godzilla games outside of the monsters themselves.

If we somehow manage to get Gabara in the game, I'd love to see him really live up to his bully personality through his moveset--I think he'd make a great semi-joke character. Three words: Electrified. Wet. Willy. Picture it. Also a special move where does the old "Quit hitting yourself!" thing would be fantastic. If Godzilla monsters wore pants, you know he'd be giving out atomic wedgies any chance he got.

Isn't there a price for the use of more iconic buildings? Or some kind of legal thing? Thought I read forever ago that there was a reason that some buildings couldn't be used. Not sure which.

I'd be fine if there was just one generic "city" stage if it lessened the cost and workload. Totally want a VOLCANO stage. Loved Seattle in Unleashed.

Ah yes, we would need to obtain the rights to use trademarked landmarks.

It will go live once funding gets underway. Remember, the only way to find view/post about the game is to donate!

Yeees, I love the idea of Gabara in the game. The Godzilla games have always been good with giving or bringing out the personalities of monsters. Gabara is such a goofy character full of CAMP. He'd be a great addition. One of his winning poses should definitely be a "cool guy" pose with his arms crossed. You just know he thinks he's the greatest when he really isn't. Joke character really fits him well. Maybe the Dan Hibiki of Godzilla, lol.

Anyway, he should have a move where he charges his body with electricity (he would probably be stationary during this), and anyone who HITS him will be stunned (like with MKG's projectile). I like the idea of him having a gimmick where he can charge his fists with electricity to augment the power of his punches. Maybe change their elemental type as well? A nightmare for any mechanical monster.

I also like the idea of him having one really powerful (probably an uppercut) electrical punch, that when it connects it causes a blinding flash on the screen and sends the opponent flying. It'd be great if it was accompanied with a THUNDER sound effect. Since it would be so powerful, he should have a long, goofy "winding up" animation to go with it, lol.

Gabara is one of the few monsters I see hitting below the belt. Even most evil monsters don't do that.

Well Oasis_S im keeping track of what monsters everyone wants and Gabara is almost at the top of the list, just 1 tier under most wanted monsters, so he just might be added to the game

You know I got to thinking, if we can't make Kamacaura's invisibility to work out normally in gameplay we could just have it be a rage move. The rage move could be once you activate it he flies forward right at the enemy and if the hit connects he automatically turns invisible and automatically starts flying around super fast, hitting the enemy with a barrage of claw swaps from several directions, front, side, behind, and the final hit knocks the enemy on the ground and Kamacura's turns visible again.

If player activates the rage attack and the first strike does not connect then the rage move is immediately canceled. The first strike must hit or just cancels.

Doesn't Manda have like, little tiny baby arms? T-Rex style? I feel like his whole move set should revolve around constricting, coiling, biting, head-butting and tail slapping. The only way I could see him using his limbs in combat without it looking hilarious would be to slice and claw an opponent he's already wrapped around.

Well, alright, NEW LIST THEN:

1. Godzilla (Final Wars)
2. Anguirus (Showa)
3. Rodan (Heisei)
4. Megalon
5. King Ghidorah (GMK)
6. Mecha-King Ghidorah

8. Orga
9. Kiryu
10. Mothra (SOS)
11. Baragon (GMK)
12. Spacegodzilla

15. Jet Jaguar
16. Biollante
17. King Caesar (Final Wars)
18. Titanosaurus
19. Varan
20. Obsidius
21. Krystalak
22. Gigan (Final Wars)
23. Hedorah (Showa)
24. Battra
25. Zilla
26. Monster X

28. Gabara
29. Manda (Final Wars)
30. Gorosaurus
31. Kamacuras (Final Wars)
32. Kumonga (Final Wars)
...33. Bagan

...I really don't like having multiple incarnations of one monster, and personally I would want them cut (except maybe MKG) if it means more NEW monsters (variety!), but if that's really what fans want then it can't be helped. I also only really care about Godzilla monsters, so I don't have any monsters from other series.

They could always increase his arm length, like how they completely changed the back legs of Anguirus and Baragon.

Mr. Strange, I think online play will add replay value, put this also will, what if like super smash bros melee, you have to do a ton of battles in vs. mode to unlock some characters? Like, do 100 battles to unlock Titanosaurus, is this a good idea?
