All this capcom engine swap between games seems really lazy and if it hits(they all make it to evo) its going to be one hell of a bummer to those of us who keep attending evo. I will admit from right now that I love kof, I have been playing kof since 95 but as of now super is the only fighter im playing. But imagine going to evo and seeing super, then capxnam… then mvc3 and tvc, that right there takes 4 slots, with only 2 engines and no diversity. Im not even including tekken which WILL still be there(along with maybe namxcap), that leaves room for what? for srk to throw a wildcard position at us and us fighting over it.
Im glad the fighting game community blew up to what it is now, but capcom is monopolizing almost everything. I mean I wouldnt mind… if they were DIFFERENT games like cvs3 or whatnot, but this? I know some people are really pumped for capxnam, but all that work couldve been to improve the roster greatly(even though it doesnt really need it) AND create something unique, not another engine swap. You could argue that the engine works, sooooo keep working on street not another game with the same mechanic?
You have the new BB and KOF, two gorgeous 2D that will end up fighting for each other. MK9 looks really nice, not my type of game but diverse nonetheless. Darkstalkers? Chances are its another sf4 engine swap… goody.
After the unveiling of capxnam, are you still that pumped for it? This is not only related to evo, which it mostly is, but what are your thoughts on paying for pretty much the same thing over and over again?
