Title: Rockman X Over, a portable Social RPG, coming to a phone near you.
Post by: VixyNyan on August 16, 2012, 05:37:19 AM
In time before the 25th anniversary of the Rockman series, Capcom has recently put up a webpage for their next Rockman game project, simply titled Rockman X Over. (http://www.capcom.co.jp/iphone/rock-xover_jp/)

(http://www.rockmanpm.com/i/rmxo_logo.png)

Announced for the iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S, this Social RPG is a side-scrolling action game that will come out sometime in the later parts of 2012.

(http://www.rockmanpm.com/i/ROCKMAN-XO_main00.jpg) (http://www.rockmanpm.com/i/ROCKMAN-XO_main00.jpg)

All the Rockman universes has been put together into the world of Rockman X Over, simply known as Xover World (pronounced Crossover World). All the Rockman characters, as well as Dr. Wily, Sigma and other characters, has been confined in the gap between successive space-time by the hands of the bad guys. Because of this crisis, Dr. Light and Dr. Cossack has together built a new robot, that uses "Battle Memory" scattered across the worlds of Rockman X Over, to fight familiar enemies and bosses, to strengthen itself with infinite possibilities.

Players will be able to fight evil in this world with this new type of robot, to create your own "Rockman" and keep peace in the world with friends!

I guess this is supposed to be Rockman Online lite...? Since Rockman Online will most likely never happen?

Looks like it.

(I noticed that, while Trigger is present, his art is the smallest of all the Megamen's. Rather depressing) This had better be a huge step up from X1-iOS, controls-wise at least, and this had CERTAINLY better not be Capcom's only game-related anniversary effort.

edit: oh, and Dr. Cossack finally reappeared, though it's too early to tell whether or not it'll matter.

Social RPG's are pretty much the best way to kill things off.
Watch the game be free, and nobody buy the gold packages.

If they want to go social, why not a facebook game?, this looks like [parasitic bomb], like MMX looked in iOS too.

I was expecting nothing but goods for the 25th anniversary, and so far it looks like that is going to be the case. How hard can it be to do something decent, a collection of some type for 3DS or Vita for example.

It's sad to watch Inti Creates developing pointless games while Rockman is dying.

The prospect of a Mega Man crossover should be exciting. This really isn't. It doesn't even look like a crossover, just a half assed Mega Man clone.

It's what I feared Capcom would do for the 25th; scramble something together quickly just to have something there. Well you know what, I think we would've been better off with nothing for the 25th anniversary. We're still in a healing period after you know what got cancelled. They should've waited till they had something that would really impress us, or at least put an iota of effort into. You can't just [parasitic bomb] something out and call it water under the bridge.

Call me back when someone at Capcom actually gets the picture. Or when the bigwigs choke on all the money they're undoubtedly going to get for Resident Evil 6. Or maybe when Darkstalkers 4 is announced. No [tornado fang] that, they'll manage to screw that up too.

And of course, there's people in the comments section (pick a site) telling everyone else that they're ungrateful little shits because their first impressions of Xover were bad.

After everything that happened to MM recently, is it too much to ask that Capcom STOP HALF-ASSING EVERYTHING?!

They can go [tornado fang] themselves with a mop. The game would be acceptable if it wasn't just made for iPhone/iPad users. That's the insulting part. No Android version. Not even a downloadable 3DS/Vita game. No, they decide to ONLY put it on the most ridiculous platform they could think of. It's more offensive than them not releasing anything for the 25th Anniversary.

I think it's complete [parasitic bomb] that the game is only for IOS.

Really? I know that they're trying to support the Iphone or whatever but they could at least make it for the 3ds or Vita.

Hearing the game announced and seeing the art went good until you read "only for iphone"

In the interest of not going insane, someone on TMMN made a good point: It's the 25th anniversary, which should be a celebration of how far the series has come and what it means to the company (though any anniversary should be like that)...and so far, this is all we're getting.

I can sorta understand why Heatman wanted us not to be negative about Xover, but come on.

Post by: Protoman Blues on August 16, 2012, 08:43:51 PM
They might come out with something else, but we don't know if they will yet. In that regard I still remain somewhat optimistic. It still doesn't change the fact that this game is insulting. Even if I wanted to play it, I can't.
Title: Re: Rockman X Over, a portable Social RPG, coming to a phone near you.
Post by: The Great Gonzo on August 16, 2012, 09:26:32 PM
Same here.

So...our player character. I'm okay with his design, but he doesn't seem to be a proper character by MM standards (clones everywhere, instead of just attributing multiple players in one place or something as "gameplay and story segregation"), has no personality to speak of yet, and seems too similar to X in some regards.

Still not nearly as angry at him as some others are right now; main point of contention seems to be the fur collar. (BTW, I've been calling him "Luka" until--or maybe after--he gets an official name)

Yknow what? I would have accepted a worldwide (lol never woulda happened) release of Rockman Online as a 25th anniversary game. At least that game looked FUN and looked GOOD. And incorporated things that fans want.

More traditional sidescrolling Mega Man: Check.

X/Classic Crossover: Check. Fancy(ish) graphics: Check.

Mega Man Online Multiplayer (During the Battle Network run many would have killed for a MMO game where you can customize your own Navi): Check


Bonus points:

Playable Duo

Intriguing story which possibly acts as a parallel timeline somewhere post Command Mission

Kick ass [tornado fang]ing trailers oh my [tornado fang]ing God those animated trailers.

CHECK CHECK AND CHECK. And the team making it seemed to be having fun with it.

But this? this seems like a lame attempt to pacify fans with a similar concept, "HEY LOOK! IT'S A CROSSOVER LIKE ONLINE!" but with far worse quality standards and overall attitude. Just another crapped out Mega man game without any actual effort or love put into it.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is what RMO became, assuming RMO bit the dust and we weren't informed.

RMO was so full of clones that it was hard for me to care about any of the characters, but it still looked like a better game than this. And as I said elsewhere, this might turn out to be the kind of crossover that only has a single connecting element, without which would just be a bunch of unrelated scenes. You know, the kind of crossover I despise.

I really don't know what to think on this. On one hand, I could try to remain optimistic, even despite lacking an iPhone myself, that it's decent and such (although a touchscreen does not make due for precise platformers like Rockman).

But the enemies look like they're taken straight from the filtered-up X1 port in iOS that everyone considered garbage, the main character is literally a sprite edit of X from the same port, and this 'social RPG' stuff along with the fact that it's a very specific character that you only customize the abilities of makes me think it's basically going to be 'like your friend's stuff to get extra points for upgrades' rather than literal multiplayer of any sort.

Considering this is the base, day-one reveal and we know little still (much less have the game in motion yet or such), I can't make extreme judgements. But I don't have high hopes for this, and something tells me most other fans don't either.

Especially perplexing considering that Android apparently has a greater market share in Japan than Apple.

But even if there were a Droid version... sorry, no sale. A cellphone is fine for Solitaire or Angry Birds or whatever other sort of timewasting distraction you can think of, but it is not an appropriate medium for what should be a serious game. They make actual game consoles for that.

And, maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I can't play this sort of game by tapping spots on a touch screen. I need real buttons to press.

Oh god, I just realized something
the boss screenshot against Storm Eagle doesn't even have a Jump button, and there's a skip command
something tells me players just run along, with no real platforming, and shoot enemies to clear the way while jumping occasionally to hit higher enemies
and then the boss fights are like an RPG, turn-by-turn with commands

It'd explain why they actually put effort into redrawing Storm Eagle and the enemies as well as making new, if severely repetitive, backgrounds, if there wasn't actually much required effort for them in the first place gameplay-wise

This is just a theory going off of the screenshots, though

I gotta wonder how casual gamers would feel about that. "Does Capcom think I'm so lazy/stupid that I'd use that on anything but a second play-through?"

(Well, if this game contains any examples of "that one boss", I guess the auto-play button'd be a small mercy. But still)

This seems more like a shotgun aimed at every single Mega Man sub-demographic that happens to have an iPhone, and the converse of that set. It's not so much "aimed at the fans" as it is "aimed" in their general direction.

Besides that, this is clearly more for iDevice users. It's a throwaway title made to grab quick bucks.

And that, my friends, is the textbook definition of "hit nail on head."

It's like this game is simultaneously aimed at everybody and nobody.  The artwork screams hardcore fan-gasm while the screenshots (hell, the very nature of the platform and its inputs) reduce it to complete [parasitic bomb].

I honestly have to wonder if somebody LOOKING for an iTimeWaster game isn't going to look at that art and think, "Nah, too serious."

kaiser Sigma isnt exactly the best example of great Sigma. Captain America Sigma that came right before it maybe, but I'd say his better forms were the original, and X8's Copy Sigma. (if you wanna count it)

yeah his First form in X3 is definitely better than his second.

And yet he's still regarded as one of the toughest Sigma fights in the series.  Especially considering that all of the other bosses in the game have the worst AI and he follows the exact same strategy with a very stupid weak point and a ton of ammo.

I thought that helmet looked familiar... (http://bobandgeorge.wikia.com/wiki/Ran)

Kaiser Sigma was hard because of his head's ridiculous hitbox and the even ridiculouser shoulder hitboxes which hindered you.

^^^^^^

This. If only Kaiser took x2 damage from normal shots (for being such a SMALL target) He could've been more tolerable (or just weak to Tornado Fang, either way). But yep, they made him ON PAR with Wily Capsule 7.

If the Zero, BN, SF, ZX, Legends series had equivalents, it would be..

Well I'm fairly certain that Sigma in X1 and X2 weren't much harder with the Hadouken and the Shoryuken either.
Except maybe... final Sigma in X1 since you can't hit his tiny head with the Hadouken. The hands never moved high enough.

Wily Capsule's a mother-[sonic slicer]. Way harder than Kaiser Sigma. You wanna talk cheap, though? Gamma Sigma. That's a cheap bastard right there.

Personally, my favorite Sigma is the first one. I just posted Kaiser Sigma for ironic effect, because he looked the most ridiculous.

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_vBCSLbKJ7nI/TR1xikNzXWI/AAAAAAAAGIQ/3bBxBvZxkpo/s1600/onlinesigma.jpg)

You gotta love that artwork, man. What an awesome looking Sigma. That's him at his best.

Ever noticed how similar Sigma is to Dracula? He's like Robo-Dracula with Sith powers, and he always always ALWAYS comes back.

Only thing is I get less tired of Dracula than I do of Sigma, because the latter's look keeps changing and looking more or less ridiculous. He's still one of my favorite villains, though, so even as Captain America Kaiser Sigma (CAKS) he still maintains his appeal.

That appeal is lost a bit when he opens his mouth, but whatever. It's not like he's had much of interest to say since, uh, ever. I wish MHX wasn't released on the PSP. Then maybe we'd have gotten MHX2 by now with a better Sigma.

Gamma Sigma is a [tornado fang]ing JOKE. Played X5 to death and I memorized ALL of his attack patterns. In X1 you can simply hadouken him when the arms in the second phase hits just the right time. Same with shoryuken with the first sigma phase in X2, just gotta get that timing absolutely-fukkin' right.

My favorite fight though has to be X6 as for the fact that it gives you something to laugh at, both phases are easy as the first round sigma does almost nothing and the second fight you can just nearly avoid everything he throws at you plus you can freakin' school him in a few hits with the upgraded X-Buster alone.

Try playing Gamma Sigma with X on Hard Mode. 4/5 you'll get those giant purple death cubes popping up on you to murder your [parasitic bomb].

Also, Belial Sigma's lame. I know it's Sigma's shtick to copy his motif from pop culture/other sources, but his entire design is just one big grey mess, and fighting him is tedious. You literally just jump through hoops with the guy. Besides, he's not even the final boss. I liked the Copy Sigma fight and it's music better.

Street Passing? Is that the thing from Heart Gold? Or Black? Just to give a frame of reference I haven't been on Internet in about 2-3 years. I tried Googling it, but it's too vague. I guess it automatically tells your friends when you beat stages or gain levels? I'm truly confused.

Posted on: August 19, 2012, 05:12:27
I was just wondering how that applied to the game, specifically. I'm guessing that's not clear yet?

It's a Nintendo 3DS feature. If you and a person walks past each other while the systems are in standby mode, they will exchange data with each other, things like Mii character info, puzzle pieces to form a Nintendo image, soldier recruitment for a turn based RPG and other free goodies for your cartridge-based games. ^^

Basically you exchange data or send messages to friends in a "Social" environment, and that is why they use the term Social RPG, which could mean that you will share your character data or items to your friends and they will help you make the game much easier with their support.

This is some really exciting news!  I'm glad Megaman is finally moving away from BORING OLD CONSOLES and onto more relevant devices, like my smartphone and iPad.  Yet, this brings up a whole new question... Why stop at phones and tablets?  There are so many more devices where the series can thrive.

Sometimes I can't use my phone, like underwater, or on airplanes, or while driving, which poses a huge problem.  Here is an exciting new concept I've been working on that I want to pitch to Capcom.  It's called Rockman X Crash, for the car navigation system.

My man speaks the truth

Ö

Alright. This is going too far.

I understand what you fans are feeling. I understand that youíre angry, and that you want more. And I understand why you feel this way. I know itís not a very good game. Believe me I know. To be honest, I would love to see a game where true Mega Men, who have already earned their names, got the attention that they deserved.

I know you are adamant. I know you are angry. But going so far as this? Iím actually starting to feel adamant myself.

You call yourselves fans, but you donít give them a chance. You donít give me a chance. Do you think that Capcom will provide good games for you in the future if you keep acting like this? I donít think so. Calm yourselves a little, take a step back, and give it a chance. Maybe if you stop hating on everything they produce, they might take a step in the right direction, you never know. Capcom has been making poor decisions lately, I will not deny that. And on top of this, you say that theyíre killing Mega ManÖ

Ö

Well, you fans are helping them do it one step at a time by doing things like this.

And thatís all I have to say on the matter. Hate me if you want, do your silly things like ďtrollingĒ all you want. I donít care. Iím just seeing the logic and truth underneath all this.

~ Xover1

come on and hate me you guys

me and luka/xover1/akiyo will make our own megaman game with blackjack and hookers

In other words, yet another rant that shames the fans for feeling a certain way.

If DmC still lives, then Capcom doesn't give a [parasitic bomb] what anyone thinks, no matter how extreme.


edit: and another thing. If Capcom formally drops the series based on extreme opinions like that, then it'll be their fault, not ours. Because they ignored all of the more reasoned comments and picked only the few that made them look justified, and pretended that EVERYONE was creaming bloody murder. I'm fairly certain that only (or mostly) douchebags cherry-pick evidence like that.

You know as well as I do, Gonzo, that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  If you have 100 people all screaming "Burn it with fire" for every 1 person making a nice, calm, rational, informed opinion, guess who people are going to listen to.

Anyway, I actually follow OVER-1 on Tumblr, but I've been taking a break today because of... personal reasons.  But I'll break my silence and reblog this.  It's really nicely written and I agree with him.

I'd like to think that my point still stands.

And most of the angry comments I saw weren't "burn it with fire", but "can't Capcom do anything right?" But even if I'm wrong, Capcom still hypothetically buried a series because the fans didn't blindly accept everything they did without criticism or question. They ignored the fans until it was convenient for them not to.

The backlash wouldn't quite be visible from orbit, but would still be fierce.

And you know, extreme or not, people are still invested in the series, which is a good thing. A complete lack of talk would be more worrying.

When your game BEGINS to have something that looks like decent gameplay we'll give it a chance.

I'm not gonna answer on Tumblr because I don't want to start anything, but seriously, people have to be blind to not see why fans have problems with this. Yeah, maybe some fans over do it, but like it's been said multiple times already, Capcom only brought this upon itself.

Huh I really don't know how to feel about that, and I don't think I quite understand what the term fan-ness means. While he does have a point I think the fan outrage is probably the only way for Capcom can actually understand what the fans are thinking since everything else fans have been doing in the past years clearly didn't work.  

I do understand that yeah some of it is quite harsh but Capcom kind of brought it on themselves with the lack of effort to try to patch things over with the fans or the fact that they really don't seem to know how to make a new idea work.  When I first heard about this game I thought it was possibly going to be another MMO RPG on iPhone the since it was advertised as a "Social RPG" but honestly other than the customization I don't see how it's a RPG.   It's also the fact that it's supposed to be the crossover that people have dreamed about but we're not seeing much of the crossover factor at all, I mean I love Tales of the World Radient mythology and this game doesn't even come close to that at all. It has about the same quality as a bad Newgrounds flash game and if I was in Capcom I'd be quite embarrassed for the fact that we are giving this to the consumer, 25th anniversary or otherwise, and really question my boss of why we are doing this.

And this guy is reacting to this solely because of a few comments and the YouTube dislike bar, I think the real WAMP-X wouldn't be such a drama king and would actually to try to redouble his efforts to prove himself worthy of the megaman name.  I mean for crying out loud he's a on the shelf model he has a lot to prove.  Speaking of which why would Light and Cossake make a on the shelf model, that in it self doesn't make sense to me.  And I don't like the fact that he looks exactly like X, it makes him look like a fancy prototype, but this is a tangent anyway.

The point is the fan outrage is quite harsh, but who wouldn't be mad about the fact that this game is supposed to be the game that is supposed to fill the hole of 2 or most likely 3 games.  I wish the fans would calm down and wait, that's what I'm doing but when a company doesn't try to listen to positive or negative views, if they ignore criticism and don't put the effort into improving future products if they want new fans but refuse to employ new ideas, how much is it the fans fault?  I don't think I'm entitled to a new game just yet, but I expect that a industry that is built on making people happy not to be reduced to only caring about them selves.  And the fact that it isn't just Megaman but a lot of other series that they're pissing off, just makes me wonder how blind that they became.  

I know that Capcom is not the only one guilty of this, Nintendo, Sega, and Namco have been getting a lot of flack too, but at least they try to improve themselves as much as they can.

Haha, this is soooo lame.
Exactly how I feel about a dude who role plays outside of a role play.

Personally, I feel that some people are adopting the "I'M ANGRY SO EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO BE ANGRY WHY AREN'T YOU ANGRY" mindset towards this. Personally, I'm indifferent; I'll wait and see what else comes of this before making a judgment.

After all, judging something based on incomplete data is doomed to failure from the start. Or at least, that's how I see it.

It's easy to say that, but demos are supposed to interest you in the final product. Xover's demo is literally just "tap the buttons until things go away" and not much else.


And you know, this guy RPing as Luka seems to think that there's only one kind of extreme opinion. "You're a disgusting hateful asshat for not being okay with this" is pretty damn bad, too.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too, he really doesn't seem to understand other opinions and again I really don't think the real WAMP-X would act like a child.

I could excuse the game for being terrible if it's story is at least interesting to me. But outside of the plot devce of "mass produced Mega Men", the plot seems really sketchy. He's made by Cossack and Light, but it's a crossover of all the series? Even alternate universes? That's weird. is it a time travel thing? I would really like to know more, but I cant really expect amazing crossover plot from a phone game.

As for the guy and his blog and his opinion, well he's entitled to it. I dont think he quite understands WHY people are so upset, and WHY his idea of "if you keep complaining Capcom wont listen, try and suppert their games and maybe they will" doesnt work. Capcom has proven that either way they will not listen.

Support the bad games? "OH GOODY, THEY WANT MORE OF THAT" decry the bad games and avoid them like the plague? "OH SEEMS THEY DON'T LIKE MEGAMAN, OK, NO MORE MEGAMAN GAMES."

As for Over-1, I kinda wish his concept was introduced in a real game, rather than a shoddy one like this. his concept and design feel wasted here.

I find it strange that Light of all people would make a massproduced robot, when he was so insistent on robots being unique and Humanlike. To make some massproduced robot just seems out of character. I mean, where IS Mega Man in all this? if it' a crossover, where are all the other Mega Men? etc.

As for the design, I like it. The fur collar is a bit weird, but the rest of him is fine.
