    I’ve never played any of the MvC games, I’m not a ‘huge’ beat-em-up fan and although I dabble every once in a while generaly I stick to the same franchises, street fighter, tekken and sould calibur.

    how about they rerelease the original Street Fighter. That would be amusing.

    I need to start handing out ribbons at E3 next year. Of all the receptionist and guest relations people, Capcom had the worst service ever. I mean I know they are not trained to handle the “public” during high traffic events, but good lord. I worked customer service for 10 years and I know how it is to be treated nice and fair. But the people at Capcom are major dicks!

    Well I’ve love to play them, but I know the people playing them are going to be crazy skill. Like MVC2 is IMPOSSIBLE to play online due to the people that still play it being all god-tier. I love UMVC3, but I’d have to think about this one only for the difficulty factor onlne
