    Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is all About the Crack

    Crack is a highly addictive illegal substance that will make you do stupid things in order to get a steady intake of it's fix, often sold in vials. The term crack can also be applied with similar definition to non-illegal substances. The Capcom's Versus series is crack. Therefore it's only fitting that Marvel vs. Capcom 3's story trailer has the universe's combatants fighting over a vial of the good stuff. 

    I know what you're thinking. Let me dispel your confusion by saying, no, you are not crazy. I did say Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and story in the same sentence. Renowned comic author Frank Tieri is penning the story, which is a good indication that all the fighting will have some sort of underlying meaning for once in a Versus game. 

    Storm, C.Viper are Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Latest Challengers

    The hotly anticipated Marvel vs. Capcom 3 reveals the latest additions to its ever expanding roster. Storm, who looks good in her new duds, returns with a similar move set to her MvC2 incarnation, now jacked up and looking fly. While I'm not the biggest fan of C. Viper, her inclusion pretty much solidifies her appearance in Street Fighter games to come. Love or hate, her rush and attack move set should translate well in the Versus world. 

    This round of reveals seems to have answered the guy at New York Comic Con who complained that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was shaping up to be a sausage fest. With a rumored 8 unrevealed characters remaining, Capcom will keep gamers teased and interested right up to release date.


    Marvel vs. Capcom 3; Special Editions and Secret Characters

    Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the threequel many of us have been patiently waiting on for a decade, has finally set a release date in stone; February 15th, 2011. That's kinda soonish, and I think I just creamed myself. 

    To celebrate this momentous occasion, Capcom is hitting us upside the head with the contents of MvC3's Special Edition, which ain't looking too bad. In the box, you'll find:

    • Steelbook case enclosure
    • A 12-page prologue comic by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus official art and a curated selection of fan art
    • 1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content
    • 2 Playable DLC Characters – Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine

    Not the best collectors edition we've seen, but it's not the worst price either, sitting pretty at $69.99. So for the collectors out there, the extra Hamilton might be a relatively low price to pay for some goods. Oh and did you see the part about the two new characters, Jill and Shuma Gorath? Shuma MF Gorath, that's my dude. I'm pretty sure we'll have footage of these two in action by week's end.

    Now let's offset the hard facts from Capcom with some flaccid speculation, which will probably never come true no matter how hard you hold your breath. Joystiq has caught word from a "source", who's probably a 16 year old, drunk on Four Loko in his mom's basement, that there are still 18 characters which have yet to be revealed for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. That would bring the grand total up to 48 playables, which is more like MvC2's 56, and a ballpark we'd expect for a game of this caliber. The rumor names:

    • War Machine (Iron Man color swap)
    • Taskmaster
    • Hsien-Ko 
    • Storm
    • Megaman (Megaman EXE color swap)
    • Ultron
    • Squirrel Girl
    • Hawkeye
    • Mike Haggar
    • Misty Knight
    • Spider-woman
    • Strider
    • Frank West (Chuck Greene color swap)
    • Tessa
    • Iron Fist
    • Red Arremer
    • Thanos
    • Victor Delacroix
    • Amatsu-Mikaboshi
    • Soki (Samanosuke color swap)

    There are plenty of wtf characters among the list to make you doubt it's validity (Squirrel Girl? Really?), but Capcom is well known for pulling names out of the trash bin for the series. On the flip side, some of those names make too much sense, and in one case, there's even leaked proof.

    Grain of salt, temper expectations, this is probably a big fat lie, blah blah blah. I wouldn't be surprised if a few of these characters were released as DLC or maybe unlockables, but I highly doubt we'll see 'em all. Prove me wrong, Capcom!


    Mike Freakin' Haggar

    Capcom you clever bastards. Slipping a tease of your next Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character in the company Halloween party pictures. Easter Eggs, in the real world kid. That's one reason why the folks at Capcom get it right. 

    Aside from the peculiarly creepy costume this dude is wearing, oh hai Mike Haggar. Retired professional wrestler, vigilante, mayor. One of Capcom's most awesome characters, now ready to toss is up in MvC3. Dibs! 


    NYCC10: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Reveals New Challengers!

    So, I was finally able to get some hands on with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 today, and I'm impressed. I mean, it looked good on it's first few trailers, but something about it didn't excite me. After getting to play, and kicking the ass of two random challengers, I'm sold. You want impressions? I got 'em.
