I really, really hope they put X-Men characters in it, because if not, it will be a really big letdown. The X-Men universe is an essential part of the Marvel universe. We'll see.

I love Mega Man's look, it looks amazing. God, how much I miss a new Mega Man, maybe Legends 3, game. Yet, we had 3 Lost Planet games and 4 Dead Rising games... T_T

As I said in the what's up box.. it's not just that it's a big part of the Marvel Universe. It's hugely significant to this franchise. Marvel's history in Capcom fighters starts with "X-Men: Children of the Atom" and the first versus game was X-Men Vs. Street Fighter. Wolverine is top tier in every game. They're basically losing their mascot.

And I'm triggered by the mention of "infinity gems". Very mixed feels but I look forward to seeing gameplay at Capcom Cup tonight. And I want it to do well even if I don't like the execution because it could be good for the "scene".

Wolverine has always been in all fighting games with Marvel characters, so I understand the significance. But I spoke in general, Marvel is not just X-Men, even without its characters, it's still a very rich universe with thousands of other characters. But of course, it would be a very big loss to the game.

As for Infinite Gems, someone said it might be tied to the Power Stones, the jewels that Thanos is searching for. So it might be a new mechanic, we will know more after Capcom unveils the Gameplay trailer at the Capcom Cup tournament.

So is this a fighting game or traditional action game like DMC stuff?

If its action game then i am VERY interested, if its fighting game then yawn.

It's a fighting game like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Tekken.

Well then its not for me...though i will watch videos since seeing the super moves is always exciting, especially when Capcom does them.

It directly correlates to Fox owning the X-Men film property I think.
I'm speculating but it seems like Marvel has dropped a lot of support for X-Men until it's back in their possession.
The comics have really suffered for years and I'm not surprised they've pulled it from MvC too.
Marvel is going to focus on the characters they have total control over. Ones that promote their own films.

If people complain enough maybe X-Men will make it back later.
I'm real curious if Gaurdians of the Galaxy finds it's way in.

I guess it's worth noting too that the X-Men never deal with the Infinity Stones - if that's the angle they're shooting for

It does. 100%. Which is the lamest thing about this.

Yes, like GriftGFX said, it's 100% correct. One of the Marvel comics people said this to the community. Paraphrasing it, it was: "If you're a company and you have 2 properties and you can get more profit from one than the other, you know which property will get prioritized/focused on".

Also, while doing a little bit of research I found many other examples of Marvel "actively" putting a stop to merchandise of X-Men, Fantastic 4 and other IP's it doesn't have the full rights to. For the sake of not making this post very long, more details about these can be read in the article below:

Why Marvel Doesn’t Want You To Watch X-Men:
http://thefederalist.com/2016/05/27/why-marvel-doe...

There are many, many more articles about this, just Google search for "Marvel Fox Rights Controversy" and you will hundreds of articles. I'm not sure if this is solely because of Disney, who owns Marvel, or if it's a decision by Marvel executives by themselves, either way it's true.

Though it should be mentioned that both Marvel and Fox have been rebuilding the bridges recently, which is why Spider-Man - a character that Fox holds the rights to - has appeared in Captain America: Civil War, a Marvel Studios' movie with Marvel characters.

Hopefully this continues, I would absolutely love to see a X-Men vs. Avengers crossover 3 hours movie, like many stories in the comics have shown in the past. Now put a 200-300 million budget behind it and it will be a really big success. I personally would prefer to watch this crossover more than 2-3 movies of just the Avengers with some allies against Thanos.

To be clear: Marvel doesn't need Fox to use X-Men in this game. They're just bitter cunts.

Unfortunately, you're right. Which is sad. This also extends to next Kingdom Hearts games, would love to see X-Men and Spider-Man worlds in a Kingdom Hearts game. But they could always add The Avengers and/or Star Wars, though it's very unlikely.

Yes, you're right. I should have mentioned Fox only has the rights to the movies, but even so, like the many examples in the link I posted show, Marvel/Disney is actively sabotaging the brands they don't own the movie rights to - or to put in a less evil way, they're "focusing" almost exclusively on the brands they own the movie rights to.

Either way, X-Men has been getting the shaft for years now, be it the comics, toys, statues, clothes, posters or anything else. So there's no reason why it would be any different regarding to games. The only reason I'm not worried about Spider-Man not being in MvC:I is because the character is too big in popular culture, it's bigger than any other Marvel character - just like Batman is for DC. So Capcom nor Marvel would be crazy and dumb enough to not put him in the game.

    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (6 Hours ago)
