absolute disgrace, capcom has certainly lost my interest as a long term fan of their games, unfortunately this stigma of sloppy dlc as a quick cash in does not bode well with my consumer demands.

as much as i loved the demo online i shall not be parting my cash for this title or any other capcom title in the forseeable future. its a shame really cause capcom trully do have the talents to make good games, unfortunately too much energy put into these cheap cash ins on their behalf deters me and i hope many others too therefore making it a no go for next gens business practices

Your loss, OE is great. Unless you still have a working Dreamcast, PS2 or Xbox and a working copy of the game you this is the best and cheapest way to play 3rd Strike. The online match making is a bit bugged but a patch is coming soon to fix that release day hic-up.

And of course no one is forcing you to buy, costumes, colors, music or whatever.

If you have a PC you could play the game for free via GGPO.

it is my loss your right. im a big street fighter fan and have been for years now. but i have to make my stand albeit a small one, and i do hope others follow and stop this crap.
really costume colours now is a valid reason for them to charge you extra? thats ludicrous.

the game is well worth its price....the dlc is not just don't support the dlc

Do people even give a damn about DLC color? I think DLC itself is wasted.

J86blum2601d ago

Agree, I keep playing the demo and im fine with that CAPCOM has lost touch with everything: Games, plot, fans, pricing. All of it at the same time I still hold my head in shame cause I know I will buy Revelations 3ds day one, and Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City.

But I will "NOT" touch that DMC reboot.

UltimateIdiot9112600d ago

What reboot? Last DMC game I know of is DMC4.

Wish they would make a new breath of fire game. Just recently bought bof4 on psn. Brings back good memories.

*continue to deny existence of the sad excuse of a new dmc game.*

J86blum2600d ago

I saw what you did there. -thumbs up- And Thats how I feel. A game I would like to see a follow up to is Wild Nine, I loved that game on my Playstation.

Note. As I type this the Dead Island trailer plays on my tv. Can't wait >.< me + a Frying Pan = Ultime Zombie Killing Machine.

Don't mean to sound like the old gamer in the room but I remember wayyyyyy back in the day, you could unlock things like extra colors, music, and characters by simply playing the game...

And by wayyyyyy back, I mean last gen.

DragonKnight2600d ago

I'm so old, I remember things like codes. You know, like the Konami code? Codes to unlock characters, codes to unlock weapons, codes to allow you to play as the same damn fighter in Street Fighter II.

Whatever happened to codes? I miss them. They've been replaced by lame DLC you have to pay for.

How the hell can Capcom justify charging $2.99 for colors? COLORS?!! I thought colors were free for all to see? Stupid publishers.

seriously, all this paid dlc shit from capcom is just that, shit. The only reason the keep doing it is because people keep being dumb enough to allow it. I don't purchase game from Capcom any more. I refuse to give my money to a company that will nickle and dime me every chance they get.. not to mention.. the game is how many years old now?

I'll keep playing their games for free, until they learn to stop being assholes.

It's CAPCOM.......nuff said.
