Breath of Fire 3: A Beautiful message like no other!

48d ago ... (Spoiler alert. This is for those who have already completed the game.) Back in the day, I was fortunate to play a game on the playstation one. This game was of course Capcom's Breath of fire 3; the third instalment in the series. The series sees the main protagonist Ryu on his search to find out his missing past, and a mysterious goddess that guides him through his travels. Oh... And did I...

Not Cool, Capcom. Smash Bros Does it Better.

137d ago ... You know, guys, I wanted to stay positive this month by making my blogs focus on Kingdom Hearts. I wanted to share ideas about what Kingdom Hearts III could have in its gameplay and worlds. I wanted to share music I found online that is extremely well done. I also wanted to end it all with a great Beginning, Impact, and Future blog. But even in my good moods, Capcom decides to play the fiendish...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

154d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

Marvel Taking Control is a Good Thing

214d ago ... So, it's been awhile since I have had the time to really buckle down and write up something new for the site, but I have been keeping up with recent developments regarding a couple of subjects that I really want to talk about. One of these subjects particularly is that Marvel was taking down various titles within digital stores at an alarming rate. Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live saw titles like Marv...

Capcom and the Fate of Two Worlds

226d ago ... There's a terrible yet wonderful irony between the realms of the niche and the mainstream. In my last post, I argued for the importance of allowing one's game to keep its identity in the face of appealing to a larger audience. I realize, though, that what's good for the fans may not be so good for a company. However, I believe that companies like Capcom can completely miss the point in total...

Hard reality. Marvel vs Capcom may never happen again

229d ago ... Despite many fan requests for more DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 or a potential third release, Capcom didn't budge. Now the Marvel license has slipped from their fingers. We are back to the drawing board. A PC release looks like it will never happen (I'll bring this up later). We will need either a PS3, 360 or Vita to be able to play UMVC3 since the successors are not capable of playing o...

I've really enjoyed this generation because of the games.

300d ago ... There have been many bad things about this generation. Online passes, DLC exploitation, the birth of the absurd microtransaction, the decline of once great developers like Square and Capcom and the rise to prominence of the fanboy mentality. However there is one thing that for me has made these things bearable. The games. I've played a lot of games in the last 7 or so years, as i'm sure many...

Take Notes Capcom: Mighty No. 9 Hits it Big

323d ago ... I'm sure many of you know as per zerocrossing's blog that Keiji Inafune has had a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since that post, the campaign has managed to raise a little over four million dollars. Mighty No. 9 will be having it's time in the spotlight across multiple platforms in the near future. Through this success, I believe that gamers have told the industry something. That something i...

Capcom failing: Shelved IPs and wasted potential.

335d ago ... As most of you are likely already well aware, recently news has come about that Capcom are in a bit of trouble financially, it's nothing too desperate right now but the news of their less than desirable situation was enough to cause many to question the companies future in the games industry. So how did Capcom, a company with a great many IPs under it's belt get into such a mess? Well hopefully...

Capcom Is In Danger

337d ago ... Most of you by now must have heard that Capcom is in a lot of financial trouble. Gamesindustry.biz reports that Capcom currently has only $152 million in the bank, and that's chump change for a major 3rd party developer/publisher like Capcom. It isn't hard to see that this could mean another THQ situation could be happening soon. Read the full article here. http://www.gamesindustry.biz/artic...

Mighty No.9: The Spiritual Successor of MegaMan

354d ago ... As you may or may not know, Keiji Inafune, formally of Capcom, and his company Comcept has launched a Kickstarter for his new Project: Mighty No.9. The goal is $900,000 and it's being made for the PC via Steam and will release in Spring 2015. However, if it reaches it's stretch goal of $1,350,000 it will come to Linux and Mac and if it reaches $2.5 million, it will come to the 360, PS3 and Wii...

EVO 2013: Epic Fights, Great Nights

401d ago ... My first appearance at this year’s Evo 2013 was filled with some many great memories, and I’m already feeling my Evo-withdrawal kicking in. From Mango’s upset over Wobbelz in Super Smash Bros Melee to Justin Wong’s near come from behind victory in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, with 1.7 million people livestreaming all of the legendary action witnessed digital geeks become headliners in this year...

Mixed Bag Talk: Xbox One's Lost Crown & Why That Is a Good Thing

404d ago ... Before I begin I would like you to take which ever brand (Microsoft or Sony) you wear on your butt cheek and take it off and put it aside on the table just for a moment. Not forever your not throwing that bad boy away just for this read. I write this without a ounce of Fanboy mindset one way or another and I ask you to as well. Have you heard of the "curse of the third console"? Well seems e...

Activision, Capcom, & EA: The Three-Headed Hydra

441d ago ... The video game industry is one of the most successful and prosperous entertainment industries around. Video games have achieved becoming a multi-billion dollar medium. It would not have achieved such status without the support of loyal consumers and hard work of developers and publishers. That being said, however, leads me to some of the bad. There are business practices that have come into que...

Nintendo loves leveraging their fans

489d ago ... The Nintendo Direct conference from earlier this week was packed with a lot of cool announcements. I gotta admit, I was clutching my 3DS with excitement while watching through the entire thing. A new Mario & Luigi RPG?!? Bravely Default officially confirmed for the West?!? A new 3DS Mario Golf (Don't laugh. I'm a big fan of those games)?!? However, this latest Nintendo Direct was yet another in...

Play Again?

516d ago ... In the midst of gaming, like with the realm of Hollywood film, many of the games we see come out in this day and age are games that have been made available more than once, on multiple platforms or other such demonstrations of release repetition. To this day, we see many people refer to these releases as "ports," "rereleases" and "remakes." I'm sure there are more terms for it that I have misse...

Why Reboots Could Spell The End of Older Franchises.

577d ago ... It should come as no surprise the subject that got me to write this blog. DmC of course. But I'm not even going to talk about the actual game itself, instead I'm going to talk about the concept of a reboot (necessary or not) and why developers like Capcom are lying through their teeth. Reboots have been used in all mediums as a way of reintroducing a formerly (or in some cases still currentl...

Devil May Cry and Your Cognitive Dissonance

585d ago ... People hate when someone decides to mess with things they love. Many frown upon the Star Wars Prequel trilogy, others upon the 4th Indiana Jones movie and there are plenty of people who simply hate the DVD re-release of E.T. (I'm sure there are examples that are not related to Lucas and Spielberg as well) Why wouldn't we? Why would someone mess with the stuff that we already approve of? Why can...
