I love Capcom– always have and always will. But these days it seems the boys in blue and yellow have been struggling, enough so to have people questioning the future of the brand and its relevance in the gaming world. Though I believe the Capcom brand is far too relevant to ever fade from existence, I certainly believe that there are far worst things on Capcom’s resume in recent years than their decision to remove parrying from Street Fighter games.
On today’s episode of Nerdist: Play, I talk about some of these issues and give my ideal scenario for the future of Capcom and some of its renowned franchises. Also, you get a first look at why it’s a terrible idea to go AFK in Destiny while visiting the game’s town area known as “the Tower.”
I asked folks on twitter what the best Marvel vs Capcom team was. Here are a few of the top tier answers that didn’t make it into today’s episode.
@malik4play I use to always rock Jin, Captain Commando, and Wolverine in Marvel vs Capcom 2
