MVC3: A game decades in the making

While I can’t say much about Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 as of now, because the game will not come out for 3 more days.  As for most people go though, I can say that I am pretty up to date with everything about this game.  Let me just say I have never been this hype for a game in a long time!  First of all, I’m a huge Deadpool fan, and am so happy to see his inclusion in a fighting game, and not just “we through him in,” but to spend the time and capture the spirit of Deadpool.  From the comics, he has a shoryuken he can use, his array of weapons, he moonwalks, when he wins or loses, he talks to the player playing the game displaying his ability to break the 4th wall.  Probably my proudest moment about it all though is that Capcom really gave the fans a present in Deadpool. If you’ve been a part of the Street Fighter community in the past years, you will have heard the phrases yelled by MVC2 favorite IFC Yipes.  Phrases such as “Where yo curly mustache at?” and “this shit is pringles.”  Well, when Deadpool beats Magneto, a favorite player or Yipes’s, he yells to the player “Where yo curly mustache at?”  A nod to the community after having stayed with one game for so long.

Enough about Deadpool though, the list of characters in this game is ridiculous.  Capcom is bringing in a lot of the usuals: Ryu, Chun Li, Akuma, Viewtiful Joe, Morrigan, and Felicia, and Zero.  But they are also bring back a lot of their classic characters that people will find amusing: Haggar from Final Fight, Dante from Devil May Cry, Arthur from Super Ghosts and Goblins, Spencer from Bionic Commando, Hsien Ko from Darkstalkers, Trish from Devil May Cry, Amaterasu from Okami, Chris Redfield and Wesker from Resident Evil, Tron Bonne from Megaman games, and C. Viper from the not so old Super Street Fighter 4.

The Marvel side also did a fantastic job including fan favorites and more unusual characters, satisfying the nerd and the casual with: Spiderman, Wolverine, Magneto, Phenoix(with Dark Pheonix), X-23, Hulk, She-Hulk, Thor, Sentinel, Storm, Taskmaster, Captain America, Dormammu, Dr. Doom, Super Skrull, Iron Man, Modok, and of course Deadpool.

All I can say is that I can’t wait for this game to be out, it has everything…stylish graphics, crazy combos, nuts supers and hypers, retarded amounts of moves, the brilliant system designed so that you’ll never have to play rage quitters again.  3 days….only 3 days.
