The wonders of buying digital only. They can take it at any time. If you have the game and want it you better hope you didn't delete it for space or your HDD never fails. This is why physical is better, you always have access to your stuff.


Marvel Vs. Capcom’s 20th Anniversary: Looking Back On A Legacy

While Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes may not have invented the cross-tag fighting platform (that honor would go to X-Men vs. Street Fighter, which released years before), it certainly solidified it, adding a smorgasbord of new characters from both the Marvel and Capcom universes to duke it out in high-flying fashion, with a number of powerful moves and super techniques that would leave opponents in the dust.

You can't make everyone happy, but there are definitely a few heroes and villains who really should be in Marvel vs. Capcom.

Yeah it's really strange that they didn't use any of their Netflix characters. Banking their cinematic properties seems to be a main focus of the suits anyway. Why leave them out? Both companies have a ridiculous amount of characters to come out with a roster so uninspired. Im having fun for what it is but it still makes you wonder who's making these decisions.

CorndogBurglar2260d ago

This is something else I can't figure out.

Not only do they have the film rights to Daredevil and Punisher, and not only do they have shows on Netflix for both of them, they are also fan favorite characters long before the movies even started getting made.

This was a perfect opportunity for them to add DD and Punisher to this series. It would have softened the "no X-Men" blow. Look, we didn't add X-Men this time, but we DO have these guys!

Jaypi032260d ago

Knowing Capcom, most of the character listed will be DLC.

PapaBop2260d ago

Not to mention Iron Fist who was in the last game. DD would have definitely would have gone a long way to soften the X-Men blow but it's Capcom we're talking about, they never do things the easy way.

Agreed, it looks like most of the marvel picks were for movie promotional reasons so it makes me wonder why not one Netflix Marvel character is featured in the game.

No doubt they may have that lined up for DLC

The 10th Rider2260d ago

I imagine Netflix makes as much money from the characters as Disney does. Disney is also pulling their shows from Netflix to start their own streaming services, but since Netflix was involved in the making of those shows I think they're staying on Netflix for the time being.

Other than that I'm pretty sure the amount they make from Netflix shows pales in comparison to the amount they make from the MCU.

opinionated2260d ago

And iron fist was already in the previous game. They made an active decision to take him out lol. It's just weird if they are using MvC as promotional material like it seems.

PhoenixUp2260d ago

MvC:I has the most underwhelming roster in the series.

So much potential for characters that could've been unexpected gone to waste.

cellfluid2259d ago

The main reason I didn't buy capcom marvel infinite is because it doesn't have a combo breaker..


Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite isn’t the same without arcade-era pixel art

A look back at the Marvel vs Capcom series and the evolution of pixel art to 3D.

It's just a pity the magic that Capcom captured in the '90s with their hand-drawn sprites has been lost to generic, plasticky 3D models. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is fun, but that world-mashing graphical charm just isn't the same.

Capcom should team up with arc system works..

Lexreborn22262d ago

For once can we like just let a franchise change without holding it to nostalgia?

3-4-52261d ago

No because it looks worse. If it looked better, then yes.

Lexreborn22261d ago

Looks are 100% objective the game does not look ugly. If that's the biggest gripe is the looks then ain't no reason to talk about this with people like you

FallenAngel19842261d ago

On its own merits MvC: I still looks off in some places

Lexreborn22261d ago

So because some places look off in some individuals opinion it ultimately means the game looks ugly? The game looks great I just got done playing it the last 6 hours. The style they chose is simply different that's it.

FallenAngel19842261d ago

It certainly does in comparison to past titles.

Some of the characters weren't made to be in this kind of art style
