    1. Same here. And will probably get this just because X is in it... just like any other game where he's featured.... if anything, at least capcom has been giving X some presence over classic MM which... is something????

    1. Agreed. Freaken can't stand mobile gaming.

      That said this is no loss from the looks of it.

      Also just saying I'm very disappointed with the 3DS library as a 2D action platformer fan, games like Kirby don't cut it for me, Yoshi's alright but I wasn't really into Gunvolt at all, Mighty Gunvolt was a throwaway promo demo type game and Burst I think runs better on the Switch for no good reason but is I guess in the end the only really good new game on the 3DS for me.

      Metroid Samus Returns will most likely be the first really good game up my alley, but even that is a remake and not really a truly new unique game.

      We don't need to talk about Vita we all know what state it's in. Don't even get me started on the lack of N3DS utilization, which is also why I hate micro console hardware updates, it forces companies to develop for the inferior version because they are not committed to the newer smaller install base, and the more they ignore that install base the less it grows and gives no incentive for the previous larger install base to trickle in and upgrade.

      I've heard goo things about Blaster Master Zero, maybe I should try that 1 game (watch me get it and it releases on all these other platforms right after with upgraded content).

  9. I was working at capcom vancouver during the production of this game. I thought it looked pretty terrible then and it really doesn't look any better now.

    Megaman deserves better than to be animated into this atrocity.

    As for the game.. I mean..I don't really expect anything less from capcom vancouver.

  10. These ugly faces make Marvel vs Capcom Infinite look like Marvel vs Capcom 2!!
    What the fuck happened to X's face?
    Hell, X would look 100 times better in my style than this crap!!

  11. I know this isn't what we wanted guys but can't we just be happy that X is getting some attention?

    1. We should not praise the mere existence of something if it is not done well.

  12. Accidentally tried this game out at PAX and man, I just can't stand the touch controls. You basically have to relearn the game. It also doesn't look any better in person...
