Inafune left, was it really a surprise? I've been upset about this since then, now I'm over it. But I'm sure Capcom was really scared to announce that. They probably tried to find someone else to do it, but who else really could?

Ah, I didn't know about Inafune leaving.  Small wonder why Capcom didn't go into specifics.  Does that mean the MegaMan franchise is effectively dead?  If so, it's been a very long and interesting ride.

Usually I'm not that interested, until I saw Phoenix Wright among those new characters. What the...? :?

Ultimate Capcom VS Marvel is only the working title.

The real name was just revealed:
Ultimate Mud Wrestling - Gaycom VS Malevel









 :picardno

Just kidding about Bekklers recognition  :twisted:
Firebrand and Phoenix Wright are nice adds :)

That's the rumor as of right now. Which is mainly because of UMvC3 not having a megaman in it. But it doesn't matter that he left, he really didn't make many Megaman games as of late, Capcom could make a game without him.

A bunch of Diablo III related news came out today.  Unsurprisingly, the mandatory online connection and the introduction of an optional real-money auctionhouse are generating a lot of unfavorable replies.

Hm. The mandatory internet connection seemed obvious, after SC2. It's how they're beginning to roll. I don't mind, since my connection's always active, but...hey, options are never a bad thing. Especially for a game with strong single-player offline content in its history.

As for the real-money auctionhouse...now that's a huge shocker, coming from a company who has repeatedly denounced players selling in-game items for real-world currency and claimed that games are for fun, and that allowing players to spend real-world wealth to gain something over other players is unfair and immoral. Though, given how much they've pushed their in-game item shop for WoW, I guess it makes sense. *Sigh*

One of Blizzard's justifications for the real-money auctionhouse was that people were going to do it anyway on third-party sites, just like they did with Diablo II.  This way, Blizzard has some control over the process so that cheating doesn't become an issue.

Of course, what this is really about is maximizing profits.  Blizzard will charge a small fee (in real money) for each item put on the real-money auctionhouse.  Some people are already salivating at the prospect of making a living just selling loot to desperate players with deep pockets.  And why not?  With high unemployment and no prospect for renewed government spending to resolve the issue, people will be looking at alternative - and less savory - means of putting food on the table.

It's not yet certain how Blizzard will transfer funds between players, but if they can make it work, it will establish a whole new business model for gaming.  Imagine.  Developers can create a virtual item for basically nothing and watch the cash start rolling in from the people who absolutely can't live without it.  I personally find it pretty disturbing, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.  Psychologists might even find reason to write a paper.  Who knows?

I'm just about finished with Black Sigil (which is great, btw), so I'm keeping an eye out for future games to play. Any DS games that you guys would recommend? I'm really big into RPGs and the classics, like Sonic.
