When you quote this:

IN MLP, each character has to be stuck with a single liking/characteristic, as per the series' concept.
And forget to quote this:

. But that doesn't make them any less limited. They talk normally and like any other person would. Something that is very tough to achieve with any other kids' show, specially one of that kind.

Ends the argument with the fact that I can't reason with you, due to you replying to only what suits your interests, and conveniently forgetting the "But..." in my argument, countering the simplicity in the show.

I'll just finish this by saying: I played Legends. Nice game. Not a big deal in terms of story. Just like any kids' anime. MLP? Excuse me by saying it works a little better than that. And yes, around 5 episodes or so, and not repeated viewings.

Honestly, Legends gets too much of a reputation for its own good. It's with stuff like this that I sometimes think Capcom was right in throwing it down the shitter.

Same. Story just gets bigger and the world doesn't seem as fun.

Nothing to call home about, just a standard, good game.

When I thought to myself and wished there would be more Megaman discussions on RPM, this isn't exactly what I had hoped for.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

*fish jumps*

It's over.



Otakus and Geeks posted an interview with the crew behind NYCC's Get Me Off The Moon booth.  Good read for anyone wanting to crawl into the heads of the more civil fans out there.  Unfortunately nondescript videos tend to attract people who just assume that L3 supporters are out there to troll Capcom's other franchises.

Speaking of which, the Facebook group has been for quite some time teasing the reveal of someone else connected to L3 (besides Inafune) joining the group.  Quite a gutsy move if it's true, considering what happened to Yoshiyuki Fujikawa.

When he announced his support of the fans, his twitter closed.

Well, in all fairness, we don't know if he was in trouble or if he retracted the comment out of paranoia.  The whole thing was hush-hush (not unlike the game's cancellation itself).  However, as they say, what was seen on the internet cannot be unseen.

I dont think he would CLOSE his twitter rather than delete the post.

Especially if he had the balls to give the fans his support in the first place.

I'd forgotten about that. I just hope CoJ didn't boot anyone else for trying to support the fans.

So, the final number is in.  Freakyforms came out this week.  What does that mean?  It's the first ever video game exclusive to the 3DS e-Shop, thanks to Capcom.  They gave up a five month monopoly on the service.

Nice.

Hm. I guess that's fair to say, but the Legends games were what they were, and a lot of people liked them for it. You're right, though. The story's not groundbreaking or anything. It was just a pleasant videogame. I wouldn't say Capcom is right because people overestimated it, though. I'd say they were wrong for underestimating it back in the late 90s. Despite being considered a "greatest hits" on Playstation (arguably meaningless compared to close-to-million sellers though), it wasn't strongly advertised outside of Japan. Only commercials I'd ever seen for the first game are Japanese, and I'm not sure when and how often they'd have aired over there. Then there's magazine exposure and demo discs. I'm not saying the game is perfect, but I am saying it deserved more exposure and would've benefited Capcom in the long run.

Mega Man in general could use more exposure. Until they make a title that has deeper game play and immersion, AND better advertising, Mega Man will always be niche and obscure.
