Our friends at Latino Gamer headed to Capcom’s Fight Night in Los Angeles to bring us the latest on whats in store for this great franchise. Daisy Salazar gave us a great report on her impression of the night-
“I was very surprised that while waiting in line we saw Seth Killian ( Community Manager at Capcom). I didn’t expect to see him there, especially just walking so casually along the line outside the venue. I stopped and asked if he was there to announce the new modes or anything in new about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but he unfortunately he said no and I died a little inside. He was kind enough to take a picture with me. Thanks Seth!
Inside the theater was alive with plenty of machines and the most current Capcom fighting games, including the playable demos for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken.
We managed to play Street Fighter x Tekken twice within about an hour, unfortunately, I’m not much of a fighter (I’m horrible with a fight stick). The game itself oddly doesn’t play like Street Fighter or Tekken but like Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The game also features EX moves from Street Fighter IV. That’s all I was able to get out of my play time. I wish I had more time on it, quite honestly. Although I’m one of those people who blew up at the announcement of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I still wanted to at least try the new characters. No Phoneix Wright or Rocket Raccoon though, since apparently you either have to unlock them or Capcom just didn’t want to show them off yet.
After playing the new characters, I’m not fully convinced about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Before heading out, we waited in another line for our free swag. All the good posters were gone but we still managed to snag the remaining few. I was happy we got a T-shirt but when I got home, I realized that the shirt size was not the same as how the bag was labeled. I requested a medium and I got extra large. Ouch, what are you trying to say Capcom?
It is great that Capcom puts on these free events for their fans. The games are always fun but I do wish people wouldn’t sour the experience with their greedy need to take up so much time showing off. Why can’t we all just be nice and get along?
PS, justice for Mega Man! Why were people not crying out with a burning vengeance like I was?”
