Absolutely loved Mega Man X on the PlayStation. Here's hoping that JRPG's make a comeback.

Probably one of the brightest minds alive within the industry imo.

i can't wait for soul sacrifice, it looks to be that killer game Vita has been missing.

so many of capcom's home grown talent has left the company for either western publishers or just forming their own studios

always loved his games can't wait to see what the future holds

You people realize he is the reason DmC exists right? He does view games as art he views them as products that have to be sold for more and more money. Because of him for awhile Japanese developers were put in a bad light because of the things he's been saying for the past few years. He isn't even the sole creator of Mega Man there are at least two other people attached to that franchise yet he get's all the credit.

Keiji Inafune is not that great of a guy. He is a business man nothing more and nothing less.

Most of the negative things he had to say were true.

No they weren't. For Inafune, every japanese game must "westernize" to sell.

Every week we have a new game that screams "F*CK YOU INAFUNE".

It happened with Ni No Kuni, with Fire Emblem, and the next one is Rising.
Erimgard  +   617d ago
I disagree. Inafune isn't looking for more "western" games, but more imaginative. Less re-hashing and more new ideas.

Does Soul Sacrifice look like a "westernized" game to you?
Namikaze_Minato  +   617d ago
He's the reason that DmC was rebooted to appeal to west. Also, Lost Planet 3 is not developed in Japan this time.

Why do you ask? Try bringing the question to Inafune. He's the man behind it too.

it's really hard to tell sometimes, but I am also not denying Inafune is responsible. I honestly felt he did something right with Dead Rising as that game is in good hands with Capcom Vancouver. DmC just turned out to be a little disappointing and unnecessary IMO. LP3 is also looking very bad from what we've seen and I blame Inafune for not being on board to oversee that project. One thing I do want to say is that Inafune is actually working with Sparks Unlimited on that new action game called Yaiba, so I was wondering if Sparks would use this opportunity to ask him for some advice on Lost Planet 3. I would if I were them.

With Inafune-san, Japan is not finished :-D

Loved his Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap

Inafune had very little to do with that.
