Power Button - Episode 56: Ultimate Everybody Vs Capcom
July 22, 2011
Capcom has had a bad week. First it cancelled Mega Man Legends 3, sparking the ire of thousands of jilted would-be customers. Making matters worse, part of Capcom's PR team blamed the cancellation on lazy fans. Then the company announced the impending Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, angering everyone who just bought the basic Marvel vs Capcom 3 a mere five months ago and compounded that anger by clarifying that the update would not be available as a budget-friendly downloadable expansion. These events are just the latest in what's becoming a pattern of fan-unfriendly decisions in the name of Capcom's bottom line. What's a Capcom fan to do? On this episode of Power Button, Brad Hilderbrand and I kick the issues around for forty minutes to lay out just how it all went wrong and where the company can go from here. There's plenty of disappointment and bafflement to go around.
