Destructoid has uncovered some mindblowing news that will shock and awe the gaming community – we have discovered, through serious JOURNALISM, that Capcom does not owe you Mega Man or any other character in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
“It’s been an open secret for a long time,” said an industry figure who is definitely not made up. “When we make a videogame, we don’t need permission from fans to put in the characters we want. If Capcom wants to include Firebrand and not Mega Man, based on what will make a more balanced videogame, it can do that, because Capcom’s making the game. Not the fans.”
Our reports show that at least 75% of fans don’t understand that they are not executive producers for the videogames they like, and as such, have no creative control. Studies indicate they also fail to grasp that if their favorite Capcom character isn’t considered good enough for UMvC3, that’s something the industry calls “Tough Shit.”
We’ll have more on this breaking story as it develops, including reports that Capcom isn’t holding a gun to anybody’s cock and forcing them to buy UMvC3 if they don’t like it.
QFT. Some of you guys here thinking that you are “entitled” to your favorite character and not giving chances to the ones you don’t want make me shake my head. It’s completely fair for you to play only the characters you like but it’s pure selfishness for you not to want others to play the characters you don’t like. How many of you guys actually cared about Captain Commando or Strider before the first 2 MvC games?
