Game Guys review - Marvel vs Capcom Origins

Until roughly a decade ago, the arcade was the go-to place for the best fighting video games (and some of the best video games in general) around. For a quarter per play -- even as much as 50-75¢ in some places -- gamers lined up four or five deep waiting to have a crack at the hotly-popular Capcom "vs" games. At the heart of these were two titles: Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel Super Heroes, with the latter being part of what started Capcom's "vs" craze. Roughly seventeen years after Marvel Super Heroes's release and fourteen after the original MvC, Capcom is allowing console gamers to experience the games in the comfort of their own homes in the XBLA/PSN downloadable title Marvel vs. Capcom Origins. (Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, PS3, Xbox 360) B-/A+
