They have been doing the remake/compilation thing more lately (Hyper Street Fighter II: The Anniversary Edition, Mega Man Anniversary Collection) but they are such good remakes. And I thoroughly enjoyed Onimusha 3, and am looking forward to Devil May Cry 3. Capcom have always been sequel-whores (there's over 20 Mega Man games if I count right), but as long as they are good quality I'll be happy; and they are for the most part. But I do agree with you 100% that they need to start up some new franchices.Originally posted by racketboy@Jul 12, 2004 @ 12:58 PM
tough one for me as well, but I'll say Capcom using Street Fighter as tie breaker.
But I must admit, as of late Konami seems to be doing better at making solid titles. Capcom is falling back a bit -- perhaps trying to fall back on their old franchises too much (SF sequals/remakes/vs series anyone?)
Funny that you would use that word. Not sure what you mean by it exactly, though. Personally, I'll take gameplay over anything else every time. As much as I like MGS, the game would be 10 times better if they let you play for more than 2-3 minutes between cutscenes/codec calls."substance"
I like it too... the first time through the game. I know some of the codec sequences are optional, but still, there should just be a 'no cutscenes' option or at least a way to skip the codec scenes without having to fast-foward through them. I guess I just feel kind of disappointed when I sit down for three hours to play a game, and only get thirty minutes worth of actual gameplay out of it.I like how Metal Gear games have long cutscenes. They're never boring, and it develops the story.
Unlike Mega Man? The Zero series has been moving the storyline forward, and the Battle Network series has introduced a new gameplay style (not my cup of tea, but..). Not to mention the upcoming Command Mission RPG. But either way, I prefer the linear Castlevanias and the original Mega Man series. I just wish they would make another linear, 2d Castlevania game.Castlevania is a game that they continue remaking and spruce up the story still unlike mega man.
Heh.. anyone else detect the supreme irony here?(i hate the military in every way shape and form, not a tree hugger but i just hate military). And come on CONTRA. Thats contra your talking about... the only real reason i liked my nes in 89.
I loved ZOE2. I can agree Konami games play differently compared to Capcom's straight-forward gameplay type games.Originally posted by Des-ROW@Jul 13, 2004 @ 12:57 AM
The artistic beauty of KONAMI's Anubis - Zone of the Enders as a whole, is something that Capcom products cannot rival in any way.
Oh no? I believe you have forgotten a little game called Street Fighter III.The artistic beauty of KONAMI's Anubis - Zone of the Enders as a whole, is something that Capcom products cannot rival in any way.
