Quickies: I hate repeating myself.....

Quickies: I hate repeating myself.....
Source(s): Capcom Unity Blog

If there's one thing I hate, it's sounding like a broken record, or sounding like I'm trying to drill one thing into someone's head multiple times. It gets old, and people tend to get annoyed at it. I dislike it with other people's blogs, I'm sure you guys dislike it as well, however.... Let's just show the blurb.




SAN DIEGO, Calif.July 20, 2011 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and Marvel Entertainment today announced that Ultimate Marvel® vs. Capcom® 3 is in development for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will take the epic battle to all new heights with new iconic characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes, a refined fighting system, eight new stages and new modes when it releases this November for the low MSRP of $39.99.
The highly acclaimed fighting game adds 12 new legends to the robust Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster, bringing the total overall roster of characters up to 50. The first new characters revealed for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 include much-requested Capcom character Strider who slashes his way into the fray along with Ghost ‘n Goblins™ villain Firebrand. On the Marvel side, Ghost Rider will finally exercise his vengeance and Hawkeye will pick apart foes. More characters will be revealed in the coming months.
In addition to characters, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 features a host of enhancements and new features to improve the game’s balance and online functionality. One of the biggest additions to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the fan-requested Spectator Mode, which allows fighters to watch live online matches together. With multiple improvements and 12 new characters, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 brings home the ultimate fighting experience for newcomers and pros alike.

Ultimate MVC3? you mean like MVC3 but with more stuff crammed into it, and additional system and online tweaking? You mean like here's the game you guys bought with a whole bunch more stuff added to make you want to buy this version as well? Like you guys just did with SF4 part deux: Street Harder? really?


Okay, I totally understand that people are getting four new characters out of it (Shuma-Gorath, Ghost Rider, Strider Hiryu, and Hawkeye), but somehow this kind of seems like this is a ploy to take it beyond DLC by tweaking the engine and online. To be honest I even half-expected it. Who really wanted to believe that Capcom would of actually announced a brand new fighting game that would get people excited?

Dagnabit!!

Secondly, the name is hilariously unfitting for the game. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3? I half-ass expect Scorpion and Sub Zero to be involved. Even Ed Boon made a joke about it on his twitter.

NOOBDE: RT Can you guys Sue for Acronym Likeness? UMVC3 Noobde: Oh yea? Our next game is Super Mortal Kombat Arcade Edition!
Even the followers are joining in with funny responses like "Super Mortal Kombat 3 plus Alpha for matching service". If you're planning to get the game, and I know a lot of people are, that's fine I guess, but I just find it irritating that once again we're getting the bait and switch, with the "this isn't the real version of  _______, this is" excuse to boot. And once again we're not even getting any of the games in series that have been long neglected...

Capcom, George Takei has this to say to you.....

  1. Typical Capcom, this is one of the reasons I didn´t jump into 3DS for SF4. I dread that they try to sell me an improved version a year later (or less) for almost full price.

    That´s something I like from Nintendo, they usually try to keep changes for the next iteration of the game without mid version: Super Smash Brothers, Mario Kart Wii comes to mind.

    The only time they launched a revision (Wii Fit Plus), it didn´t affect the experience of those who didn´t want to update and the update itself was cheap.
