"When I was at Capcom, I felt I was one of the ones fighting to take risks," says Comcept's Keiji Inafune.
The amount of times his games got the middle finger from Capcom before being actually released do show that there was animosity between the two.....
It also shows that Capcom continues to make bad decision after bad decision. Still I am hopeful for whatever Deep Down turns out to be.
Think about it from Capcom's perspective as well. He confirmed he made both Dead Rising and Lost Planet with the company money behind their backs. I'm not saying I agree with all Capcom do but he isn't altogether innocent. He is the one that "confirmed" MML 3 despite the fact he knew it wasn't green lit. It is also partly Inafune's influence that led to DMC. Just dig back to what was said about DMC 5 at the time. Capcom pulled BS by cancelling MM but he should not have been saying games are coming when he knew they weren't. Personally I think Mikami got far worse treatment than he did.
Yeah i don't get it . While he was indeed badly treated , he still was among those pushing for those western experiment that blew up our faces . Seems like people wanna forget his involvement altogether , and absolve him on the account of Cpacom truly being led by douches .
Seriously, cause Mega Man was about the only one because anyone who isn't a Mega Man fanatic knows that Mega Man is NOT profitable it's business 101....Nor did his games get any sort of middle finger...HE designed and created Dead Rising 1 and 2, so don't pretend there was some vendetta against him just because Mega Man isn't worth spending millions just to make a couple hundred thousand
Of course. When MegaMan released, Keiji had to make MM 2 in his spare time! No wonder he left Crapcom. All they're doing is trying to make guaranteed money. They should've localised EX Troopers in the west. It would've been a hit with anime and manga fans, with the right amount of marketing.
Capcom needs to just sell the Megaman name.and Resident Evil while they are at it.
Yes cause they are totally going to sell RE after 5 & 6 sold 7 million copies each...Nobody cares that the moron nitwits want to cry about it being more action....6 wasn't perfect it had flaws but it was not awful...
Interesting. Thanks for the share.
This guy, Shinji Mikami and Shu Takumi are the best capcom had/have got. I still kinda hope Shu Takumi moves away from Capcom to another company or maybe writes the next Ace Attorney movie.
I would add Hideaki Itsuno onto the list as well.
Capcom killed RE and DMC and milking their SF4 pretty badly and lost sales of games in a row.
NO in the minds of you morons they killed DMC...The sales of it and the high review scores killed the nitwits campaign to trash it every chance they got, smart people realize it was a pretty damn good game....RE6 is also the highest selling in the series so again wasn't killed there either, its just more nitwits who wanted to cry that it wasn't stuck in 1996....It may not have been perfect but it was far from awful or series killing, Leon and Ada's campaigns alone were worth it
NO DmC was still lacked some elements like Exploration not just the look and personality and it wasn't better than DMC1/3/4. As for RE6 it was good ok but it wasn't better than RE5. Not to mention Capcom lost sales in a row and now look at Lost Planet 3 it IS next. EDIT: Btw RE6 cam out on 2012 , it didn't sell well until its price dropped on 2013. Look at TLOU, that game sold very great at the moment of its release not like RE6 sold till price drop and next year. (I wouldn't mind for reply)
However you spin it DMC sold badly period to the point they had to constantly revise expected figures . Either way , the game was made to attract a new crowd and yet didnt . You have a right to like it , but got a completely unnecessary trend of calling other idiots lately , when you can barely check your facts and read posts ...
"However you spin it DMC sold badly period to the point they had to constantly revise expected figures . Either way , the game was made to attract a new crowd and yet didnt ." That is fact. "You have a right to like it , but got a completely unnecessary trend of calling other idiots lately , when you can barely check your facts and read posts ... " Got right to like it? Ok As for the rest, I don't know whether you mean I am idiot or I am calling other idiots? (My 1st language isn't english). But whatever it is I am not calling others idiots and I am not idiot. At "when you can barely check your facts and read posts". I am saying something that is fact, I played a game that didn't really give me much of satisfaction and I am not the only one you can go to Capcom-Unity.com and see people there(sure yes there are people loving DmC, but there still heat of hate for DmC). (Wouldn't mind for reply)
Sorry Gohadouken, I thought you were replying to me not Deadpoolio. Anyways extra bubble for well said.
Big Studios no longer take risk..It's now Indies devs that take risks..
..we need another Shadow of Rome Keiji (and another japanese made Lost planet not western crap) ...we know you liked it a lot and prepared a sequel
