Anyone else find themselves in a position where they’re a little jaded from Capcom? What with this SF X Tekken fiasco and other issues I’ve had with the company I’m really starting to gravitate towards SNK Playmore.
Capcom charges you extra for next to everything it seems like, but my order of KOF XIII came with a soundtrack, something that is normally only given in pre-orders or other similar items.
At least if I were to get UMvC3 I would get all the characters and not have to worry about missing key elements of gameplay, i.e. gems and whatnot. Darkstalkers would certainly be worth a buy as well as long as it doesn’t get handled like SF X Tekken has been.
I don’t know, maybe crossover games just have higher stakes and that’s why things sometimes don’t turn out for the best.
Companies like SNK Playmore and Falcom (of Ys fame) and other lesser known companies just don’t have as much money invested in them, which means less drama and sticking it to the customer.
I’m not a diehard, hardcore, or otherwise “oldschool gamer” that has been around since it’s inception, I just respect them more on a PR level I guess?
I’m not saying that “underground” or “obscure” or “indie” games are of higher quality, it’s just that because they make less money so they have to focus much more intently on the game they make and only the games they make. They don’t have time to mess around with things like the big guys can.
