Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite just seems like a game that had lower production values than its predecessor

Rereleasing a title various times isn't instantly an indication that a company is doing bad. Various companies have rereleased their games many times across various platforms.

people seem to forget that capcom is the developer of Monster Hunter series,
a series so addictive that they need to put a warning not to play too much in the starting screen

trust me, january 26th, many first timer will get addicted to the series and see that an amazing MP game can actually come without MTs

just_sayin1367d ago (Edited 1367d ago )

Monster Hunter is not that fun IMO. I just don't see the appeal for that game.

notachance1367d ago

@just_sayin you have tried it? maybe it's just not to your taste, but I'm sure it will gain massive amount of fanbase with the release of MHW on mainstream platforms

iofhua1367d ago

I tried monster hunter with my brother once and thought it was the most boring thing ever. Couldn't understand all the hype around it.

InTheZoneAC1366d ago

I have monster Hunter on the Wii u, played maybe an hour and never touched it again.

Big_Game_Hunters1366d ago (Edited 1366d ago )

There is no way in hell Monster hunter world Is going to make capcom a big profit. The usual Mh sales probably barely covers MHW budget. Trust this,Not as many new people will buy it as you think.

notachance1366d ago (Edited 1366d ago )

@aboves true, true.. I kinda understand that because tbh I also think it's boring the first time I tried the series on PSP, but that's because I tried it alone and the series back then didn't really have much in terms of presentation and story, they pretty much straight out telling you to do mission and grind and I was like wtf? never touched any MH ever since until MH4U.

It's kind of changed with MH4 though, they put more acceptable stories and made it more accessible to first-timer without sacrificing the depth of gameplay. From what I've seen on the trailer it's gonna be even more so in the MHW, trust me, it's gonna make you guys look back, because that's exactly what happened to me.

Dam whats with you casuals can't play any hard games might as well get stick with regenerating health and cheat on cuphead for ever.

notachance1366d ago (Edited 1366d ago )

@erogemaster oh yeah I forgot, there's a learning curve on playing monster hunter much like playing Dark Souls. Well, can't help it if the casual dudebros bunch above can't handle it man.

Teflon021366d ago

Monster hunter won't be as big as you think. Not in NA and EU. I'll be giving World a try, but I hated the MH games up until now. I do like alot of games in the genre like Freedom wars, Ragnarok Odyssey/Ace and God Eater Burst + res. I have 2 but haven't started yet. But yeah, I like those but hated every MH I tried so far and I've tried plenty and played the first one on PSP before the series was really popular

their last games were unable to hit the targets because were below trash in concept and some times in quality ...and not because production (money) problems.....
if they have treated RE with respect and didnt rape the thing to the core making this BS of a game (RE7), now would have at least gain some fans back ...the same goes with last MVC ...i havent seen a poorer in concept art game coming out from such big developper ........they dont need to be bought in order to be saved .....just bring 1-2 good game artists and writers-directors to take over and salvage entirely some of the IP s and the problem is solved

'If Capcom's Has Money Troubles Who Will Buy Them Out'

The word Capcom doesn't need that apostrophe and S. The sentence should have a question mark at the end of it. If websites can't write basic English how can we have any respect for what they have to say?

Colin Moriarty? Is that you?

PurpHerbison1367d ago

So you just going to ignore RE5 & 6?

naruga1367d ago

RE4,5,6 were not authentic REs ...though were absolute fun and good action games ...RE7 was a garbage whole together

Oninioh1366d ago (Edited 1366d ago )

Re7 was vastly superior to 4 in every way other than enemy variety. Get over yourself and your empty notions on how a resi evil game should be.

Sirk7x1366d ago

RE4 is wildly considered one of the greatest games ever made.

ILostMyMind1366d ago (Edited 1366d ago )

I agree with you, except for RE7, a good game.

Sad thing is about RE7s low sales is if they just followed through with their original vision of RE5 then maybe the franchise would have evolved in a better way instead of mutating.

In the end their sales projections for RE7 (which would have been completely different) would have met their targets.

gantarat1367d ago

they already met their target (4 millions) week ago

-Foxtrot1367d ago (Edited 1367d ago )

Lol. Yeah now it has, it only took them 10 months longer, they were expecting 4 million DAY ONE, or at least a month in.

They also want 10 million lifetime sales which most likely isn’t going to happen

Let’s not spin this, it’s not done as well as they hoped. If they stuck to RE5s original vision and made RE6 similar instead of the other the top action fest we got the sales would be much higher.

gantarat1367d ago (Edited 1367d ago )

4 million day 1 it's a joke from producer

yeah it's took 10 month to met their target but game still doing good (3.5 > 3.7 > 4.0 > ?)
and game pretty much more lower budget RE 5 and 6 (has recouped development after release 1 month)

i don't think RE 7 Will have 10 million lifetime sales (the highest selling is RE 5 – 9.5 million)

Gman321367d ago

PSVR may help RE 7 to sell 10 million

freshslicepizza1367d ago

"Let’s not spin this, it’s not done as well as they hoped. If they stuck to RE5s original vision and made RE6 similar instead of the other the top action fest we got the sales would be much higher."

Let's not spin this? That's exactly what you're doing. RE7 was well received and I bet you had comments that were not favorable towards RE5 like you are with most things. You act like you know better but in reality it's very easy to criticize from afar with no investment.

Oninioh1366d ago

Yeah you're the one spouting ans spinning nonsense though. Capcom never expected it to sell that much day one. That number was projected for months after release and you can Look it up. Next time try not to let your empty bias comment for you...maybe then re7's success (read gantarat's comment) won't sting you as much.

Well im almost certain that Tencent will sooner more that latter will own the majority of Capcom shares if not all,so Capcom most likely will be absorb by Tencent Gaming.

ps360s1367d ago (Edited 1367d ago )

I agree on that.

China is growing and growing, (as I daytrade and also trade cryptos too)

I can see China being smart and takeover a said company

gangsta_red1366d ago

Doesn't Tencent also own SNK?

It's a trip seeing these Chinese companies buy Japanese one.
