Next week all servers will celebrate Thanksgiving Day with a new capsule. If you're familiar with the "Welcoming of Spring Promotion" Capsule from the Taiwanese version, this is pretty much the same.

  • B Rank = 5 EM
  • A Rank = 140 Weapon Patches

  1. I wish that there was a different blog section for X DiVE news. These types of X DiVE articles read more like advertisements, and they make actual Mega Man news (as sparse as it may be) get sort of lost in the X DiVE articles on the main feed.

    1. Thank you for your feedback. There are some limitations presented by Blogger for filtration... but not entirely impossible. I'll be reevaluating categories as we start getting more significant non DiVE updates.

    2. Unfortunately it can't be helped as Mega Man is not an active title for Capcom so not much news except this...

    3. You're good Protodude. It's just hard to get news for Mega Man nowadays as it's not an active brand for Capcom

    4. I do wonder if it is even worth posting news on dive, or at least so frequently. that is all it is these days, year after year. I doubt most care at this point. If Capcom wants to lose customers and bore us, they can keep that nonsense up. I'm real tired of how this just goes on endlessly every year since about 3 years now. Capcom seems like a one trick pony nowadays.

    5. I guess I'm alone in seeing what they'd add into X DiVE & what the devs add into their game.
      I understand most people dislike X DiVE because it's a gacha game, but it's as much of a Mega Man title as anything else; it deserves the same amount of coverage as anything else.

    6. @Arranos, it really doesn’t.

    7. Agreed, it doesn't. Worse yet, it gets at least 10 times more coverage than everything else. That could hardly be called 'same amount'. We gonna do this for another 3 years? How about something new and legit, like a true sequel with the true MM platformer action style and a true story continuation? Funny Capcom can't see that most of all, I would say most of us want X9, MM12, ZX3, and Legends 3. Considering the drought of content, they do that and I bet it would sell at least as well as MM11. MM11 did it right. Now that's MM. Not doing what Dive does and just having bathing suits, scoring points against long dead characters (we mostly see just old characters returning or non-MM characters), crappy explosions, we used old assets with a modern detail, but old assets nonetheless, and other weird non-MM stuff (like the whole game is just side games to score points).

      Time to move on now. Dive had its fun (for far too long now) and we are long overdue for a sequel. Makes me feel that the longer attention is on Dive, the longer we go without any attention to a new game because too many keep supporting this nonsense ruining it for the rest of us (it sure feels like that, and I don't mean this taisen rumored stuff that probably isn't even what we want and probably still a rumor and guaranteed not to be a sequel that we want). Is it really too much to ask that we move onto another game now? I miss the days when MM games were released often on multiple series. Better to have too many games than an endless drought of not enough games.
