Dark Void and Bionic Commando were not bad games.

They weren't good games either imo.  Neither was LP2 sadly. :(

I will defend RE5 though, but then I only played it co-op ever.


I thought they were good, though Dark Void had some glitches, though flyin with the jetpack is FUNNN

I rented DV, vertical cover and progression was a neat idea, but it just didn't turn out well.  I actually liked flying itself too though, I wish this had been more a platformer than a shooter, as it'd probably have been a better genre to implement the flying dynamics. 

BC just sucked though.  In both cases, I thought the promotional downloadable tie-ins (BC Rearmed and DR Zero) were incomparably way better games.

LP2 I actually bought, and resold.  It was total trash.  I'm afraid to take the plunge on DR2 now, HD Capcom seems to be cursed. ;_;

Everybody that was even talented at Capcom is now at Platinum Games or Grasshopper or other studios (except Keiji inafune). RE5 sucked, DMC4 sucked and SF4 was slight disappointment, they stepped it up with SSF4 though. The only things that is coming out of Capcoms doors thats even playable since RE4 is arcade games, fighting games and Dead Rising, all of which doesn't bring much cash as they don't sell to well.

Monster Hunter still rocks, so no, there's still talent at Capcom.  Ditto for Ghost Trick and Basara 3 evidently, and Okamiden looks great.  Just because their internal HD exclusive efforts have gone south doesn't mean the company has overall.

And SF4 was amazing, though it was also really developed at Dimps.

When i said arcade games, i ment games that wasn't in HD. However i still stand by what i said, Monster Hunter sucks, i got a version of it on PSP (don't even remember the name), probably the worst game i've ever bought. I haven't played Ghost Trick and Basara 3 though.



Capcom are idiots. Tastuwhateveritscalled V Capcom instead of Street Fighter Wii? Clowns.

Wii has the largest fighter audience and they waste their opportunity with some Japanese cartoon shit? They missed the boat. They could have joined Nintendo and Sega in the success of real gaming returning but they wasted it on the iphone. They should give someone with some common sense the Street Fighter IP and made money instead of trying to cash in on some shitty sequel. Even Capcom can't learn it's own lessons.

Nevermind, surely Street Fighter Hyper Turbo 3 will bring in the dollars.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

WIi fighting audience? "Ok" Brawl is big yeah, but its not the traditonal fighting audience that plays that game and they wanted the online to be you know; actually good. Also who the hells is gonna buy Wii sticks, when there is whopping 1 fighting game on there? SF on Wii wouldn't make sense they only put TVC on there since it was the only platform for a SD game, TVC was already out on arcades way before Wii.



RE5 was a fine game. Its just that RE4 was so freaking great, probably one of the best games of last gen, it puts RE5 to shame. Im sure they are happy with RE5 sales anyway.



how about Tatsunoko vs Capcom?

Capcom must be disappointed

They already said they were happy with TvC sales a long time ago.

At least they're happy with MH3. Amazing game and I clocked 300 hours on it (best value for a game I've bought), though I'm getting kinda bored of it now and I want MH4. So where's my MH4? :P

For the record, someone at Capcom said they were "pleased so far." That was only about a week after the release. You can't assume that means they are happy with total sales so far.

If they aren't happy with SSFIV (an expansion) selling 1.2 million in about 4 months.

I can't imagine they happy about TvC selling only 330K in about 7 months.
