Very true, you can only go so far with a story and then it just all goes to hell after that. Really the best way to make a third game to anything is have the same theme going on like Mario. That's the only reason it gets money is because it re-hashes the same thing just in a different setting.You can only make the same game so many times anyways.
QFT.Capcom: The "Hollywood has run out of ideas" meme of the gaming industry.
No, you disagree with me. That doesn't make me wrong. What makes me wrong or right is what I get out of the games, not what you get out of the games. It's not like they do with Megaman what they're doing to Bioshock - The orignal setting was getting old and stupid, so they made a new one, where the tech goes back to the 1700's instead of just the 1950's. They put the same characters on the same planet with the same villains and just tweak the gameplay a little, then call it a whole new game.YOU ARE WRONG! SO VERY VERY F**KING WRONG!
Largely due to miscommunication, that; Capcom Europe were referring to the European response towards the 'help make the game' aspect of this game. Still kind of unfair, though; they did specifically state from the outset that people didn't have to help with that part, that just supporting it helped.In short, they said that the reason that MML3 was cancled was that there was not enough support from the community. Yah, there was a lot of outrage from that.
Keiji Inafune left last October, I think. He was the one really pushing for the whole community-involvement thing, so this project falling apart can be partly attributed to his departure from the company.Oh, and the person who made the Megaman series left Capcom. Lets just say that approval for Capcom is low.
Fun fact; they totally did that. It went as well as you predicted.Just imagine if Interplay was making Bard's Tale sequels.
As someone who's never found Devil May Cry's over-the-top shenanigans terribly appealing, I'm actually finding that I really like the direction DMC is going in. Fan reaction is... going as well as you can expect it to. "You've CHANGED SOMETHING?!! FUCK YOU CAPCOM, FFFFFFUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU."...the current visual design of that DMC reboots...
Well, I meant more along the same lines that Capcom completely wore out the Mega Man series, then tried to revamp it, and wore that out, then tried another revamp. Bard's Tale was never that extreme in its sequels, but looking back, my post was unclear. :)Fun fact; they totally did that. It went as well as you predicted.
