oh capcom, i used to loved you once,

what have you become........

Money grubbing punks without a clue?
ReubenPatrick  +   550d ago
That about sums it up

Don't like to say it, but it's not entirely Capcoms fault. Business has simply shifted to a more profitable case of micro transaction/dlc. They are simply following business trends and not adapting will probably leave them in the dust.

Where does this lead for gaming?

Games designed to prioritize one's abilty to maintain a healthy bank account over fun, creativeness, or just plain skillz it seems.

Chris Redfield is out of ammo - Would you like to purchase more?

Chris Redfield would like to end the nightmare - Would you like to purchase the Umbrella Underground Base to continue?

Chris Redfield is having a hard time staying alive - Would you like to purchase some really cool body armor, because we're not going to make this fun or rewarding and hide it in any kind of really secret puzzle on you.

@auragenz it will go as far as the common consumer allows it. If Capcom does charge per bullet, and people DO actually buy the bullets, you can bet your ass they'll do it in other games too. If no one buys it, then they won't bother with it.

Monster Hunter.
Ace Attorney.
Ghost Trick.
Asura's Wrath.
Dragon's Dogma.
Okami.

Capcom, the company, may be "bad," but the games they produce are still fantastic, and still number among the best of the generation.
PopRocks359  +   550d ago
I'm pretty sure not all of those were "developed" by Capcom.
Qrphe  +   550d ago
I'm surprised DMC4 ended up being an excellent complete game without any DLC.

@PopRocks359
Actually they all are and they are all amazing....

Reality is Capcoms not that bad...broke gamers just feel that they are entitled to get everything for free.

New age gamer: dlc free, expansions free, cut content free, new skins free, new weapons free, dedicated servers free yep everything free free free.

New age gamers dont like to pay...look at pc prices and whats happened...torrent sites for stolen games.

Gamers dont support devs and publishers by buying new and then expect to get dlc free too. Its a damn joke.

Why do you think every dev wants drm and console manufactures are looking for options to kill used...because devs are getting screwed by new age gamers...end of story!

Asura's Wrath was TRASH
Inception  +   550d ago
@XoF
Yeah, maybe those are some good games from capcom. But you forgot the mediocre to crap list:

Bionic Commando
Lost Planet 2
RE 5
RE 6
RE ORC
DmC

The only games that i liked from capcom on this gen are RE Revelation & SF IV.
vork77  +   550d ago
Asura's Wrath all about QT
linkenski  +   549d ago
Alright let's list hose in the order they were made in.
Okami = Last gen.
Ace Attorney = I personally love it, but it feels like a 7/10 type of game.
Monster Hunter (3) = Not as popular in the west as in JPN.
Ghost Trick = Awesome, but overlooked.
Asura's Wrath = The ending and DLC :/
Dragon's Dogma = Too big with too little.

Yup i love some of these games, but with the latter titles it shows how greedy Capcom have become.
humbleopinion  +   549d ago
You forgot Dead Rising which was also one of the best zombie games around - before it became a trend. Probably capcom's best IP this gen (Dragon's Dogma coming second, and Lost Planet and Void trailing far behind).
RE5 and the DMC reboot were also pretty good. Not
the best in the series but far from the worst.

Capcom -
take my money and give me loads of new characters for umvc3. There's no fkn excuse any more as if there was one in the first place.
RockmanII7  +   549d ago
But if they work on UMvC3, how are they gonna make Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2013?
xflo360  +   549d ago
Dear Capcom, If you want more sales and old fans to come back then do the following...

Release a Resi evil that goes back to its roots, Revelations is close but it still needs a bit more horror.

Release a Dragons Dogma with 2 - 8 player online co-op.

Release a 2d Street Fighter on next gen with pin sharp characters and seemless animation, 100+ characters and more modes.

Release a Onimusha/DMC crossover, this would be so good!!
miyamoto  +   549d ago
they have been corrupted by the west

not only was their games westernized but their ways of doing business got westernized too

they try to apply to their games what western publishers like EA and Activision do to theirs

instead of making good and improving on what made them great they adopted a completely foreign policy to their business but it didn't fit them and it backfired on them as western gamers did not find it fun

Capcom, what are you doing?
What are you doing, Capcom?
CAPCOM?
STAHP!!!
Max-Zorin  +   550d ago
It's a reason certain main people left the company.
Parasyte  +   550d ago
Soooo...Capcom are basically wanting to go out of business?
adorie  +   550d ago
Well? Let's help them out! Word of mouth can put our foot in the door.
mydyingparadiselost  +   550d ago
They're nowhere near the only company trying to use these kinds of DLC strategics. It seems any game that asks you to subscribe to a season pass of DLC is doing the same thing Capcom is talking about doing now. Whether it's for good games or bad games from good companies or bad it's the same thing, so be upset with the industry as a whole and not just Capcom.
delboy  +   550d ago
I'm afraid of what the game industry will be in 5 years.
Moerdigan  +   550d ago
Thanks for the warning, Capcom. I won't buy your games at launch, although its almost been 2 years since I bought a game from them at all.

Selling incomplete games is partly why they're in this mess in the first place. Glad to see my boycotting of Capcom games/buying used is working.
CBaoth  +   549d ago
Good to know your principles extend only so far.
grassyknoll  +   549d ago
The principle is Capcom gets no money from me until their policies change.

gamernova  +   550d ago
Weren't they doing that all along? Lol
Oh_Yeah  +   549d ago
I just want Power Stone 3, it's worth having a Dreamcast JUST for Power Stone.. That's how great those games are.

Capcom why you stop...why -__- Idc if it's just a little update/ arcade & psn title. Bring Power Stone back.

xflo360  +   549d ago
Yes!! For me Power Stone 3 would be a perfect xbox live arcade game, 4 - 16 player online would be amazing!
Daver  +   549d ago
I could easily pass on all their games if they do that, I dont remember any games I bought this generation that were made by them that was memorable, they were ok at most. Only deep down looks good from that teaser.
linkenski  +   549d ago
Developers ready to fail and be shut down for next-gen:
Capcom *CHECK*

Not good.

I hope this means Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 gets more DLC content(even though I know there's a high probability that it won't, but a guy can dream).
