Marvel vs Capcom old and new

Share

Remember, several months ago, when Marvel vs Capcom  3 disappeared from online stores? We all knew that the agreement between Marvel and Capcom had run its course, but we weren’t quite sure whether or not we were going to get something new. Well, we got our answers over the weekend, and it’s mostly good, if you asked me (and I’m not even a fan of the game).

It seems that with all of the HD remakes coming out, we might as well get a 1080p overhaul on one of the most loved fighting games. PS4 version is already out and the XBone and PC versions will follow in March of next year.

As if that wasn’t enough, Capcom also dropped this little nugget on us…

That’s right, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. They let us see a minute-long gameplay teaser and it looks pretty good.

Here’s my only gripe with this, and I’m sure I’m the only one to have this view: do we really need both? Isn’t selling the HD remake just stealing more money from people? Why not just let them have their original versions, then release Infinite by itself? Or, even better, why not go the route Call of Duty used and use the HD remake as a bonus for pre-ordering Infinite?

Like I said, I’m sure I’m alone in this, and that’s fine. I never liked MvC3 anyway, so it doesn’t affect me in the slightest. Are you excited? Let me know in the comments.

Quake HD Remake?

With all of the HD remakes coming out lately, I started wondering what games I would actually like to see get a remake. Everyone has been hoping the Blizzard will announce a Diablo 2 HD at Blizzcon this year, and that would definitely be towards the top on my list. I just finished playing DOOM, which was… kind of a remake…? I enjoyed my time quite a lot and look forward to going back to play it on a harder difficulty. That got me thinking… why not Quake?

I’ve long considered Quake to be one of the best games ever made. The leap from the Doom engine to the idTech Quake engine was one of the most important moves in computer gaming. Just imagine where we’d be without Mr. John Carmack and his toolbox of wonderfulness!

I think I could guarantee my $30-45 to a Quake HD game, but that’s not the real question. The real question is whether or not they could count on your money?
