  • Too bad Strider is not in MvC3…

    • baww boohoo

      • What? I liked him lol! There were a few other characters but I can’t remember them…

        • strider was fun to use ^^

          • Yeah. :D He was soo cool! LOL >.< There was this other guy, he had like white clothing with a white bandanna and a beam sword…

          • FireCouch

            Not to be a dick or anything, but that is exactly the reason characters like Hayato aren’t in the game. No one even knows their name, they just like how they look.

            I mean, if Hayato was in the game I would be happy, but it just doesn’t make sense on a business perspective.

          • I get what you mean and all and that is pretty understandable. Before you commented I remembered his named lol, but I wish they added a few more classical character, you know what I mean?

          • Also… for some odd reason the character rooster seem smaller then the one in MvC2…

          • irzbos

            yeah, only 1 character from my main team is in this game, it was shuma-gorath, hayato, and jin with jin being my favorite character in this game. however i had already accepted there was no chance of him being in this game.

    • PrinceHeir

      yes strider, gene, vergil, onimusha characters, seig warheit, and Juri han please :D

      but i would rather save them on Tatsunoko vs Capcom 2 :P

    • SolidusSnake

      Strider was a great character in MvC2, and the NES game is a classic.

  • Woot finally I can get new games. This week I should have Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Hyperdimension Neptunia (once NISA finally ships it out…). I cant wait for Neptunia. Hopefully I wont shelve MvC3 like I did LBP2 and any of the other games I have that have online modes for later days, lol.

  • Sal

    Hmm, the MvsC 3 Japanese cover looks better than the American one.

    Also I’m interested about how Catherine turns out, I hope it sells well so we can get more HD Atlus games.

    • Aoshi00

      Yea, I prefer the Jpn cover too, the US regular cover is quite horrible.. that’s why I went w/ the LE steelbook on Capcom’s site (I don’t care for the goodies/DLC/T-shirt that much), otherwise Kmart gives 25000 reward point ($25) for MvC3 if you’re a shop reward member, which is a pretty good deal.

      Can’t believe Tactics Ogre is alrdy here, I’m just getting it for the Yoshida Akihiko Tarot cards lol (I’m not very good at SRPG, too impatient..sucked at FF Tactics even though the soundtrack was so epic). I think Catherine should be awesome, and probably not too long as the puzzles encourage you to replay for better score. Hopefully it wouldn’t be too scary, giant screaming Kat and giant baby.. I think it should sell pretty decent like Bayonetta, has that adult appeal.

  • is megaman been confirmed yet? i seen zero and tron, but not the little blue bomber. or did zero replace megaman?

    • People have had the game for days. Unfortunately Megaman is not in

      • All I’ve been saying is, “NO CLASSIC MEGAMAN, NO BUY, MAN!” And no, Niitsuma, Zero is NOT a Megaman, since he’s not created by Dr. Light in the first place. >.>

        I’ll make a wager: Classic’s no-show status will be in the league of “NO MAI, NO BUY!”

  • Ereek

    Three games for me this week, Neptunia, Tactics Ogre, and DQVI. I’m excited, but I know I won’t have enough time to play them all immediately.

    Of course, my PS3 just died so I’m not going to be able to play Neptunia for a while. . .

    • Really? The JP art looks like “Baby’s First Photoshop” to me. The US EU art actually looks like they are fighting each other rather than JP’s that looks they want to punch MY face off.

      • Ereek

        Hmm I think you replied to the wrong person and meant to reply to the person below me?
        Edit: Or above me?

    • Did you get YLOD? I can fix it for you if so… especially if you didn’t back up your saves recently!

      • Ereek

        Nah, my laser just decided to stop reading anything. I tried what I could to fix it, and it wasn’t under warranty, so I just decided to get a new one.

        Thanks, though.

        • Aoshi00

          May it RIP, I haven’t used my old one in while the fan go so loud… a Slim is pretty cheap these days, they always do these $50 credit deals in most stores and Amazon has tax and shipping free too..

          • Ereek

            Thanks, and yeah they aren’t too expensive, at least compared to a few years ago. I got a new 250GB for a cheaper price than a 160GB, so I was pretty happy with that, unless it comes up that this one has issues as well. It just has to arrive now.

            It just means I will have to get a new PS2 eventually, though. My old fat one isn’t going to last forever with all the time I’ve put into it. That’s what makes me saddest about my BC PS3 dying.

          • Aoshi00

            Now that I haven’t used my BC phat in a while, I really don’t find myself missing it as much as I thought because I hardly play PS2 games anymore.. it’s probably better to have a PS3 Slim and a PS2 slim separately even though you need PS2 memory cards (of course the upscaling was good).. the slim is now quieter and more energy efficient anyway.. I just wish I could do something about the fan.. the loud noise was very annoying watching blu-ray movies and was what drove me into getting a slim 2 Thanksgiving ago.. I just got Dances w/ Wolves on blu-ray too, I kinda had a thing for Costner (people doubting my sexual orientation now lol..)

  • Its mahvel baybee!!!
    But….Japanese people dont like it so much :/
    I think Catherine will sell more in Japan than MvsC3


      I’m playing it with my friends, but I’m never going to learn how to actually play this game. Balance doesn’t exist in the game, lol.

  • HarryHodd

    Go Catherine!!!

    Just Neptunia for me.

  • Already bought MvsC3 and Tactics Ogre. Will buy Neptunia later.
    I just want to hear that Catherine is going to be localized. I really liked the demo.

  • Ugh. I couldn’t pre-order Dragon Quest 6 in time, so no Slime for me :/ Oh well, at least I get 2 mini soundtracks and a deck of tarot cards from my other pre-order bonuses.

  • Someone tell Play Asia to ship my copy of Catherine already. The wait is killing me!

    • Aoshi00

      I hope we both get the pre-order bonuses (though I did order the full OST alrdy, along w/ Last Story’s).. so many games, I think I might just finish Last Story before Catherine (no easy feat for me because I hardly beat games these days w/ very few exception)… I probably wouldn’t get Catherine before President’s Day weekend though..

  • PrinceHeir

    can’t wait for neptunia and catherine :D

    already playing MVC3. im soo addicted to it ^^

  • DQ6 for me! But not right now, I’ll get it in like 2 weeks.

    • RupanIII

      Yea same here, gonna hold off a bit, spending too much lately. Also will get Tactics Ogre and maybe MvC3.

      Anyone know when Hard Corps: Uprising is coming to PSN? Is it 1 month exclusivity on XBLA? PSN Day 1, baby!

  • Catherine will outsell Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in my opinion. It will be very interesting to see where Two Worlds II lands in the software charts.

  • Go Catherine! Storm the charts with puzzle/horror goodness!

  • Wow, the JP of MvC3 looks way better. It would been awesome if they got 2 or more artists from both Marvel and Capcom and did their respective sides. Now that would have been the “Fate of two Worlds.” :3

    For games I see that probably climb to the top is Catherine. The better chances to be localized. :D

    Now I’m waiting for HyperDimension Neptunia to arrive at Gamestop. T.T
