Does Capcom own the word super or something?


#1

It’s just that I see most fighting games try to use different words for what is, essentially, a supermove. Such as Desperation Move (KOF), Overdrives (GG), and Ex moves (MBAC).


#2

Other games just want to name them something else, a lot of people still refer to the moves themselves as supers iconically so doesn’t really matter.


#3

I think those companies are trying to be original.
Plus super is a played out word that might not add that certain identity to a game that the designers are looking for.

Like if its an animal fighting game, they might call supers a growl charge, or beast attack :stuck_out_tongue:

lmfao


#5

I like desperation move for move you can only do when you almost have no life left. It describes the situation perfectly


#6

Ditto.


#7

I think I should own the word vaginapussy


#8

That’s hot.
You’re fired.
Dipset

uh…

-SH


#9

??? You are a fuckin’ gag!


#10

I now imagine StuartHayden as this gag on a masochist.

Why does my mind work like this?


#11

:wow:No answer for that one.


#12

That’s because the gag’s on you.


#13

Oh snap! (insert Price Is Right game over music):sad:


#14

Empire Arcadia? Hmmm…


#15

dont worry about it


#16

Yes. If you use the word, you have to send them $5. I expect you to be writing a check, or I’m notifying Capcom:USA.


#17

I call 'em quintos


#18

I love how everyone calls “supers” in other games…well…supers!


#19

In a similar vein, you’ll hear pretty much any projectile from any fighting game referred to as a “fireball” at some point. It’s kind of a “generic” term that anyone can recognize, if they’re not familiar with terminology specific to a certain game.

practically any system-related feature can be a “tech” too :#)
