Something deep down inside of me feels like capcom had a hand in all the issues and problems associated with the development (more specifically lack of)...it just seems odd that all this crap happened to this very simple game.

That might've been an okay 3-day rental if it was a budget release on the PS2 in 2006, but...it's 2016. I...don't think I'm going to get that on release. Maybe I'll consider it when it's <$15, but not before...

@Agent D. - I could see Capcom's lawyers throwing around threats of plagerizing, but that's the most I've seen. They were supposedly partnered with Inti Creates, which was always an independant company, if you can believe that. In fact, that might've been part of the problem - they were probably banking on getting "the old band" back together, but...Inti Creates were never very good at 3D graphics. I don't know if they got anybody new in the last 3 or so years since the Kickstarter ended, but I do know that their insistance on a 2.5D platformer threw up a ton of road blocks right out of the gate.

It's just sad how much wasted potential went on here, for so many reasons. And it wouldn't be so bad if Capcom showed any real desire to continue the Mega Man franchise, at least in any dignified way...

I'd say their comparisons are a massive stretch, but it looks like a fun game regardless.

Nah. This was Inafune's baby from start to finish as I don't think Capcom ever greenlighted an anime or a sequel series prior to the release of the very first game.

I feel that it was a combination of Inafune's core team simply lacking the experience/wherewithal to see a project of this scope and magnitude through, Inticreates sending in the B-Team to help with a 3D game (which their A-Team aren't quite phenomenal at, let alone their B-Team), the Kickstarter was a total fiasco and Inafune himself burned every bridge and climbed every pedestal he could to make this project as big and attention grabbing as possible.

To be clear, the similitude between both are more parallels that are valid to point out on their own terms with how things turned out around this whole deal.

I know Sterling said it several times himself through the video, but man is he bad at platformers.

Anyway sucks that he decided to play one of the levels everyone had already seen (The water level was one of the earliest ones shown). IIRC during beta tests they showed a total of 4 levels (Intro, Water, Fire, and Military Stages). I made a post a while ago where I felt lukewarm about the Water/Military stages and thought the Fire level was just okay. Going to have to wait till the game comes out before I can see the others ones, I guess.

I'm not surprised. He is the same guy after all that couldn't grasp Vanquish and dismissed it as nothing special and later championed DmC: Devil May Cry as a "supreme title" for the genre.

Found a YT video of the game's final boss and ending....I'm getting a whole bunch of MMX6 vibes off of this. Yarg.
