Right. I forgot about Mother from Famicom being allegedly translated. Though, I was mentioning the legal stuff that supposedly have gone down with EarthBound and Mother 3 being the hassle.

Looks like Squeenix might have finally jumped the shark.

The shark you speak of has traveled around the moon plenty of times by now.

Definitely my concern here is that I just don't feel they're "on-point" (in general) right now

This is how the SQEX cycle begins.

I wonder if they're using it as a way to blackmail fans test the waters for how much support there would be for an official Mother 3 release

Conspiracy theories aside, releasing any EarthBound/Mother on the West has always been a hassle for what I've seen. The fact that Nintendo slowly got around to actually doing it should be enough to be satisfied.

If we are going to talk about a game with Activision's involvement that missed the mark then Destiny is the poster child.

Everything Jeff Gerstmann said once on the Bombcast about it is nothing but the truth. Despite all that however Destiny is (was for some?) as much of a big deal I knew it was going to be.

Nintendo is smart for their pre-recorded approach.  Sure it lacks the 'in-real-life' appeal of seeing these events, but the presentations are much 'tighter' for it.  So even if the Nintendo reps aren't "there", I'm sure they will be on a giant monitor telling us to "please look forward to it".

What I like the most about their approach is that they don't waste the patience or time of its fans. And they do care about maintaning a genuine connection or understanding going on both sides to keep everyone satisfied. Of course, that's way easier said than done with the massive amount of cool stuff seemingly everyone wants out of them.

Oh, I'd love to be wrong about Platinum's Transformer game, since I like Transformers, and a high-octane action game based on Tranformers G1 from one of the best in the industry sounds like a match made in heaven.

But so did a Legend of Korra based-game from the same developer, and that ended up being a wasted opportunity, largely because it was a budget game that was rushed out the door. And Activision does that with a lot of their games. It's hard for me to get up my confidence when they're stuck with a publisher that never seems to learn from their mistakes...

You have noone but yourself to blame for that one. I was also, like others Korra or Platinum fans, looking forward to it and it ended up being no more than what it could be under Activision's hands. And that (believe it or not) is fine. If you were after something bigger then... I guess you gotta take this as a lesson learned the hard way.

Honestly, that's probably the only way to enjoy a Sony E3 Press Conference given how they tend to go.

*snip*

I found the XBOX "TV TV TVT TVTVTVTVTVTVTVTV" thing pretty entertaining too... And by entertaining I mean "holy crap this is boring".

Most of the event for quite a while has been pretty disingenuous. Sure everyone has their moment here and there, but overall, Nintendo have made E3 worth following consistently and have showed (in their own way) that they do care more than others.

More data on Ryu's abilities.

Go figure that he'll control like a Fighting Game character.

Well that's expected since the accurate representation of iconic characters is one of Smash's biggest strengths. And that's also part of the point of the whole thing.

That said, is cool seeing this Ryu being a nice mix from everything that come before. And while I don't follow Smash tournaments very much, I hope to see pro players pulling off crazy moves with him. I love seeing some of the stuff a few players could do with Pac-Man and Zero Suit Samus.

Also, the second wave of Mii Fighter Costumes are even nicer than the ones from the first one. The ones of Virtua Fighter and Tekken are super cute.

I can't find any pictures of rain clouds but assume I posted one here.

Nevermind your rainy cloud pictures. This is better (and also relaxing). ;)

To be fair, their games are usually crap when they're given very little time or budget to pull off what they're trying to do.

Since this is an Activision game, that is most likely the case here...

In my experience, what some call 'crap' more often than not ends up being an exaggerated way of saying "that's not for me".

Ryu's remixed theme and it's awesome

The synthesizer sounds too high-pitched. The rest of the arrangement is fine.

...On the other hand, their game output does seem to have an "either/or range" that the game is either amazing or crap.

Platinum's worst is average actually. Internet cynicism be damned.

I don't know what's worse; Ryu and Roy being "leaked" way before anything was said officially or Bloodborne's DLC being unglamorously announced on Twitter.

I'm considering renaming this thread to Super Smash Bros. Capcom.

You need much more than just Mega Man and Ryu to make that joke work.

@timmyFd: Don't forget about Scholar of the First Sin. At the same time though, I would recommend not to stress over release dates so much. Those things are push back and forward to the point it doesn't matter. What matters however is Dark Souls III itself, and if it comes out soon that's great but if it needs some time to let that one cook then that's fine as well I guess.

Also, small rant here but, I wish seemingly everyone would stop doing these "leaks", announcements of announcements, giving vague dates or talking way too early about projects already. The world doesn't need more cases like The Last Guardian or MGSV.

Of course its impossible to say definitively as the character, for all intents and purposes, never existed, but from the looks of things, it did seem like Nomura was aiming to make something along the lines of Entourage: The Movie: The Video Game for a while there, and I don't think she was going to have the role Nomura said she was going to have.

I highly doubt Versus was vaporware with the way it was talked about and shown a few times. And it wouldn't be surprising if playable builds were left for private use.

In any case is no secret that Nomura put a lot of himself in Versus. Music, movies and fashion that he's into was used to create aspects of the characters or the world and I bet ideas he never could get into Kingdom Hearts he used them for Versus later making them their own thing.
