Lets face it.. those other characters "do" things in their genre .. gabe and tycho (while awesome) are boring outside of their fun little friendship.
Why wasn't Gabe as the Cardboard Tube Samari used instead?! You have a bunch of 'action' heros and then some .... guy ..... sitting there. At least the Cardboard Tube Samari would have 'earned' his way into the game by being an 'action' hero.
Just my 2 cents. Feel free to ignore me now.
Edit- and yes I registered just to say that.
