DamnLag columnist with a strong love for the Marvel Vs. Capcom franchise feels that Capcom isn't approaching Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 the right way.
They don't really seem to have much of a focus. The Capcom characters seem to be niche, but the controls are casual?
The game has the new set up for controls and the classic MvC type.
Really?? Where? Link me to this info because this is the first I've heard of it. Unless you're thinking of the game's easy-mode control scheme option that maps everything to one button. The game's main controls are 3 attack buttons like Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom.
"This makes it even more disappointing when they make announcements that the game won’t have any characters from games like Rival Schools, Monster Hunter, or Sengoku BASARA." Rival Schools - not active these days. I bet they'll include a character if a new game is in the works. Monster Hunter - the MH team didnt approve to use any MH character because to them there arent any iconic characters from the game. Basara - not that popular in the US. I'll be expecting a Basara character if a TvC sequel is in the works. "Or how about the fact that the game’s plot is supposed to be that Wesker and Magneto are gathering villains..." -Wrong! It's Wesker and Doom, not Magneto. The author seems to be one thing about some popular characters not making it in the roster: DLC or another version of the game with tons of new content. Trust me, knowing Capcom, we'll either get 10+ DLC characters or they'll announce MVC: Ultimate All Stars, if you know what I mean.
Capcom are fkin idiots They took arguably the best series of all time and flushed it down the fkin toilet R.I.P Capcom let MVC2 be remembered for its greatness
Your just mad that BB Hood won't be in MvC3
... although those are big complaints... For me, it's the whole art-direction they took, which I feel just fails. Most of the characters look absolutely horrible and too dark with this new art-style. It's like plastic 3D characters, not even great models btw, set in an unappealing setting. Even the fonts used look horrible. I know they're going for a modern-day comicbook style, but it just doesn't really work. Give me MvC2 over this any day of the week!
Rival School characters too. In fact, I vote for a new Rival School!
... although I'd rather see a new Power Stone. :)
I've been feeling the same way about this game. I'll play it, but I'll probably just rent it and buy it when it's cheaper. Definitely not in a rush to play it like I was with Super Street Fighter IV.
I'm just going to do my best to keep the faith.
Megaman still isnt announced. The game is an Automatic fail at this point.
He will be in the game but it depends when and what version of him will be in it.
Did they really? oh well I might have missed when they posted the news here on n4g. Hopefully he's in there.
Yea Megaman will be in it. They practically confirmed that there will be a Megaman X character too, and that it won't be Megaman X. Most people's prediction lists right now regarding Megaman is Megaman Classic/Zero or Sigma/Tron Bonne. One from each of the 3 main series, Classic/X/Legends.
You know who they should put in this game? Dr. Wily. Get more villains on Capcom's side AND it would be freaking awesome.
Oh well, I'm still getting it only because Amazon sent me a code for 50% off this game because they never sent out the pre-order bonuses for Dead Rising 2 :)
I got one of those codes too hehehe. It's a good tradeoff, because I had forgotten about the dlc for Dead Rising 2 anyway.
weird rant ... it's like he isn't happy some of his favorites weren't picked . Anyway as a fighting games MVC3 characters can't please everyone ..you're bound to have characters to dislike or don't want to play with. Also a fighting game like this MUST have variety. if you're were really a fighting game fan you'll look less at MVC2 and try to enjoy the game with the characters that appeal to you... stop the "my favorite character didn't make the cut" moments please
You did read the whole article, right? He didn't just talk about characters in the game, and when he did, it seemed like more of an example of how Capcom is creatively managing the game.
oh yes i read the whole article but exceot the last part when is he complaining about the simplification of the controls .. the rest is that. "we’re given characters like X-23 and M.O.D.O.K. that seem to just take up valuable character slots. " "the fact that Marvel’s side is a pretty massive sausage-fest." "they’ve also said that characters like Phoenix Wright, God Hand’s Gene, Gambit, or Ghost Rider won’t be in the game." "he game won’t have any characters from games like Rival Schools, Monster Hunter, or Sengoku BASARA." "That’s the same lame excuse they made for the lack of Speed Racer in TvC" "Don’t even get me started on their excuse for the lack of Darkstalkers characters." "when I say that it would be awesome if they put Stan Lee in the game as a playable [joke] character" Shall i continue ?? This opinion piece is full of it ... cries of someone who want another roster for his idolized game
Anyone can take sentences out of context to prove a point. "oh yes i read the whole article but except the last part" So then you didn't read the whole article. See? I can do it too. Yes, a portion of the article is about characters the writer would've liked to see in the game, but he also points out how this seems to be the result of Capcom's agenda with the game. Besides, I think that's a reasonable thing to complain about in a game like this where the characters make the game. It's not the "cries of someone who want[s] another roster for his idolized game." It's someone complaining about the way Capcom is managing and approaching the game's character roster and controls.
It's not the "cries of someone who want[s] another roster for his idolized game." It's someone complaining about the way Capcom is managing and approaching the game's character roster and controls. Lol you'd think marvel as no say in this ? capcom ? the only thing you'd be sure is that they'll try to make the most fun cross over game possible .you'd think it's that easy for 2 giants like that you reach a comon ground for characters ?if that were the case the sequel would have took way less time to come. as for the sentences , i'll leave it to everyone to look up and see that my sentences make perfect sense AND are in the context.. but oh well defends your article , my opinion is set.you said i didn't read the article i proved you not ..but you seems to long for a verbal fight ..good luck with that
"they’ve also said that characters like Phoenix Wright, God Hand’s Gene, Gambit, or Ghost Rider won’t be in the game." Then you disregard the two following paragraphs that go into Capcom's excuses for not putting Phoenix or Ghost Rider in. "That’s the same lame excuse they made for the lack of Speed Racer in TvC" An excerpt from another recent example where the writer feels Capcom used excuses to avoid putting effort into certain characters. "Don’t even get me started on their excuse for the lack of Darkstalkers characters." Disredarding the rest of the paragraph that goes into Capcom's excuse for not putting anymore Darkstalkers characters in the game. Yeah, he has some personal choices for characters he'd like in the game (hence it being an opinion piece and whatnot), but half of your quotes were just taken out of context.
Don't really see a point to debating this at all. Based on every other MVC3 opinion piece I've read so far and everyone I've talked to about the game, it's impossible to not talk about the roster. This is a "Dream Team" game, so the biggest point of discussion would obviously be what characters are or aren't going to be in the game.
It seems Capcom is screwing everything up nowadays
I want X, Zero and Sigma, but I doubt it...
Would love to have Vile as well but there's no way we can have all four :(
Sorry I can't force myself to like what they are doing to the game it just doesn't feel right.
say hello to this stupid noob friendly crap devs are gonna put out now...
Be honest, id rather have the old 3 punch/kick type even more than the 2 p/k. But either one of those would be better than this bullshit scheme. I played tvc and the fact its so casual friendly made me quit. Characters, as far as they go, this list is making me unhappy. Modok being a horrible joke. At least for capcom its a good reason to bring dan in (though i like dan) and possibly servbot again. Im actually at a crossroad. This game could possibly be a fail. And they should listen to the fans who wanted this. I highly doubt the majority wanted "noob" friendly controls. Think, it kind of means no akuma. Definitely no anakaris. They had supers which needed button inputs . I wonder if anyone else has wondered how this will go. And then what about multiple supers? Such as ryu having 3. But how will he activate certain ones. Wolverine had 4. Leaves me wondering more and more.
The main thing that bothers me about this game are the controls. I've played TvC enough to know i just dont like that particular control scheme and to find out it's the same one that's gonna be implemented into MvsC3 is heartbreaking. I remember watching a video of someone demoing the game during the last E3, using ryu, and then performing one of his BB combos from TvC and afterwords saying, and i quote "just like in TvC", and i could just remember thinking to myself WTF!!! And to make matters worse, they are gonna implement an Easy mode to perform specials/supers/level 3's with the press of a button on top of the standard noob like controls they already have in place. Well damn Capcom, why dont you just say screw it all and not let the person play period. Just make the characters AI controlled and leave us with just the option to select characters. I think i can live with the sub par roster lineup, art style, and lesser characters but damn when i think about how horrible the controls will be, i just cringe. Rant over.
yea the roster was gettin 2 me till they added Magneto but its those controls, its not lik it was super complicated 2 knock some1 in the air but now u get a button that could of been used towards an extra punch or kick, i mean im gonna get it but i keep thinkin dynasty warriors fighting game.lol.....& i am 1 of the ppl who buys every new DW.lol
I just hope they iron out the screen tearing and frame rate issues before the game comes out; I can not play MvC under those conditions, I don't think any serious player could either.
