Play Hard Or Don't Play At All!


  1. i love capcom but i dont like some of their games

  2. I can’t say that I find this news all that interesting.

    I love the games that Capcom has been putting out lately, and here’s to hoping that continues.

  3. I don’t know…imo Capcom kinda lost it. With Dark Void especially. Don’t get me wrong, i love some of their games, but i hope they don’t screw up the Resident Evil series. Just Cause 2 is a great game…except for the audio…where did they record that…sheesh

  4. Capcom is one of my favorite developers this gen, even if they have released some bad games like Bionic Commando and Dark Void, but they did amazing things for the fighting community with Street Fighter IV, and i’m antecipating Super Street Fighter IV too.

    skull_x_man, Just Cause 2 is not a Capcom game, it’s from Square Enix and Eidos, but i think the audio in that game is on purpose.

  5. yeah, my bad, sorry there :-s

  6. I wonder how the addition of David will affect Capcom. We will wait and see I suppose. Capcom still makes some golden games despite things like Dark Void. Can’t wait for more Megamans, and Dead Rising 2.
