Nothing much is new except that Ono left Capcom Vancouver to the main branch in Japan. I personally think he jumped ship because how things over in NA isn't doing too well. Their mobile market plan costed them hundreds of millions of dollars. The screws up just keep on coming and it doesn't seem to stop anytime soon.
Speaking of which. I have some hilarious news to share. If Cashcom has the time to do 1 day DLC or Lock Disc Content, wouldn't it be better for them make games to series that need development rather then doing this? Corporate idiocy at its finest "shrugs shoulders".
Man that sucks I hate when that happens, but hey it's a bread and butter
As expected someone will indeed dissect Crapcom and made their assets known, it been a floating rumor for awhile glad it came to fruition. They say vote with our wallets then we do, so they do not need to get upset, it THEM that said it, since we disliked alot of the things happening lately. Also a company that has tons of money before now begging fans to "CROWD FUND" them? Hell No! the way they treated fans and didn't listen, it's gonna be a big fuck up. Not alot have the online paypal or credit card to give them more money for another half-assed game.
As for the video. DmC is a dead horse even the bones and flesh that should be burned in hell that should have never happened. At least DMC2 had something "DMC", the reboot is just wannabe or better yet a "Hollywood Style" DMC like dragonball movie which should never happened EVER AGAIN. MGR I can accept the fact that it set out what it needs to do, be a hack and slash game. Go stealth on some areas and hack and slash on others.
Yo Kenji. It's been awhile. Things for me have gotten complicated in rl. My job, which I'm supposed to work morning to noon, now got shifted randomly. So I'm forced to work nights, afternoons or mornings depending on the scheduling. I hate it, but it's a job that allows me to buy and play games, right. Anyway...
I'm sure you know this, but Cashcom have 152 million dollars left to keep them afloat now... that's something else. Looks like ours wallets and us, the fans, have continued to speak and made our voices heard. It's to be expected, but they deserved it, and they can't afford to mess up not even once or twice, but it's like you said - the fighting games and their updates will keep the ship afloat for the time being.
As a fighting game fan that upsets me, but at the end it's the consumers money...which they'd think before they buy. Speaking of which have you read this little article? Really unneccesary and Drawven Vow #24: Never let your feet run faster than your shoes.
Oh yes, there's this video I wanted to share with you. It's somewhat DmC related and I know you don't wish to taal about that. It's about 5-6 months old but think of this as companies who handle games and the fanbase in both positive and negative aspects. Be sure to tell me what you think, and please accept my apologies if I'm taking up your time.
Later dude, have to wake up early for work. See you around.
Hey there, long time no chat, just busy with my job as always and just watching a few weekly animes and DL other animes to marathon later.
To the topic at hand. I think with Capcom's bad decision making over the years with their flops DmC and "Remember Me", I think they will stop making new IP's and just concentrate on the ones that made them big, they're CLEARLY milking out SFIV franchise while a group of fanboys are hyped about the game.
With Sven gone I think it might just get worst for Capcom USA will be handled with less experienced people than Sven though accounting Sven for also his bad decisions and management in Capcom he really contributed to the holes in the sinking ship, now he's gone to the life boat and bailed out like Seth Killian.
Capcom Japan has the final say and I think with their last 2 IP's busting they won't do another IP that didn't succeed. 100% sure they're gonna be milking the SF4 series, Dragon's Dogma(Down Below possible new game later on), Dead Rising3(TONS of DLC), Ace Attorney and they're be selling Megaman as a "License to use character" as seen in Smash Brawl and possible other cross over series, but will not be getting it's own and lastly RE series possible getting more prequels than sequels or a new mercenary game.
Also SF is Capcom's milk cow as long as it's popular and still be supported by fan boys it will as Capcom's lifesaver.
Yo Kenji. I meant to get back to you weeks ago, but have been all over the place in the gaming news, EVO, and buying and pre ordering new games. Speaking of gaming news do you think that Sven leaving Capcom is a great move or will the ship continue to sink or stay afloat for a little while longer? Me, I'm glad he's gone, but can't help but feel that things won't change for the better. Could just be pessimistic, but since it's Capcom... you may never know.
Yeah true. They're business men than gamers, that's why it's all about TV and movies to them and they want control over the consumer. They thought consumers or loyal gamers are blinded that will buy anything, not all are like that. They share the mentality of crap and greed which doesn't make the gaming experience better.
As for Xbox fanboys and girls, I guess they're loyal to their brand even though they're not getting the best out of it. Saddens me as well. They will play for a company that only wants good for themselves and not the consumers.
