Dragon's Dogma is anything but "a lazy attempt" at anything. That game looks gorgeous and I'll definitely at least play the demo. They certainly put work into it.
But I'm mostly with you on their fighting game bullshit. I am a die-hard fan of Street Fighter IV. When Super SF4 came out, no-one really complained because it was great. It was about 16-18 months after the US release and over 2 years after the Japanese release. It added 10 new characters, a new balance patch, better online, and a few new extras like stages and multiplayer modes. Super SF4 was a good deal. Then they started releasing more and more costume packs (...) and a new Arcade Edition adding just four characters about a year after Super (...?) and the disc-only Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 only eight months after the original without fixing the busted online (!!!) and now Street Fighter X Tekken has already announced DLC characters and modes when the game has been out for about a month (RAAAGE!!!).
I dunno much about this Asura's Wrath stuff, but as a diehard fan of Capcom's fighting games, I am officially disgruntled. Street Fighter IV is still great, and I'll happily keep playing that, but I am a little outraged at the UMvC3 stuff (it wasn't even DLC!!! You had to buy a new copy!!!) and haven't played Street Fighter X Tekken yet as a result. I'm interested in Dragon's Dogma and want to play their new Monster Hunter titles, but I'm disappointed in Capcom's recent behavior. Capcom is still one of my three all-time favorite game developers, but right now I'm not terribly proud of that fact.
