I’m not even going to touch on Mega Man, save for when actually relevant. Looking at “Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3”, we were told that MvC3 was meant to have DLC (and yes, we were actually told this), but “the earthquake” caused that from happening. Yeah, earthquake, what a jerk.
Now, moving past that, the updated version looks to have meaningful content behind it. While I still think it’s wrong to not have some kind of Upgrade-program for the MvC3 faithful (ie. the fans that made it possible), it still winds up a little under $4 per character, sports some extra stages, and admittedly gorgeous Character-select screen. And we can’t deny the earthquakes overwhelming impact, being one of the worst series of disasters in human history, so even though it felt like a bit of stretched logic,
But OH WAIT!!! The costumes are going to be “DLC”, and each pack is gifted from pre-ordering with select retailers.
And it HAS to be mentioned, Mega Man and Mega Man X were consistently some of the top characters requested, even being treated as TWO SEPARATE CHARACTERS. Mega Man X absolutely dominated polls anyways, being the #1 request characters in Japan, and even the top request on Unity’s own (unofficial) poll. How can you exclude Mega Man in some form or another, but add Nemesis? Really? FOUR Resident Evil characters?
Capcom, have you lost your ****ing minds? Not only are you asking us to shell out another $40, and not fulfilling the #1 requested character, but you actually have the gall to REMOVE Costumes from the core game, only so you can charge extra money for those? In one week, you’ve actually managed to ruin every one of your brands in my eyes.
