RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Capcom Bombs Their Bomber

Posted on Tuesday, July 19 @ 18:20:00 Eastern by KevinS


After months of grass-roots development and a flood of love from the fans, Capcom officially decided to can the project known as Mega Man Legends 3. After all of the input and creative force behind it from their community in the DevRoom, reading through the comments section is an amazing show of solidarity against a major developer with some storied franchises under their belt (including the one that really made Capcom a household name in the first place, Mega Man).

I can't say I was on-board with offering my thoughts on the project, but with what they were trying to do by giving gamers a voice, I have to both give credit to them and cry a little. Every fan of a series - any series - wants to have their voice heard in the creation of what they love, and while projects are discontinued regularly in the pixelated world, having a say in how a project takes shape and then killing it abruptly can seriously hurt a company that tried to reach out to their fans… but when the fans reached back, they slapped the hand away.

It was a good idea I suppose, and while their "official" response on why they ended development is… well, weak and back-handed, they deserve the reaction they're getting. And thinking that this might be a BIG step back for the franchise as a whole (which is one of my favorites), I don't know if I would buy a new one and support the company that would bitch-slap its own supporters.

Capcom, you better find a way to kiss those diehards' collective ass… or learn to teleport. This one's gonna sting.
