Am I supposed to be impressed by the Shin Sakura mod? It just seems a recipe for ungodly amounts of cheapness. (I thought Igniz was bad.) I wonder, are there any legitimate mods out there for boss characters or is that a trick question?

I loved TvC! Even more than UMvC3. Baroque and Mega crash >>> x-factor in my opinion. lol

Eh, I say let Nintendo have it's own exclusive fighter (I'm probably saying this because I have a Wii, but still).

If anything, the Wii U should get TvC2.

No Eagle SF1 theme? No Guy Alpha 3 theme?

No Doom or Psylocke MSH themes? Those are god tier capcom music pieces.

Also that TvC vid really makes me wish Batsu was in MvC.

@1 Maybe we might see a TvC 2 for Wii U? I certainly hope so.

I bet on the application for Capcom it says something about Megaman and if you answer "Who is that again?" you will guarantee yourself a job.

Why? Console exclusivity is a quick way to shorten the lifespan of a fighting game. TvC especially, since that's already niche enough as it is.

What about Rose(SFA2/SFA3), Sakura(SFA2), Tower of Arrogance(DS3), Spiderman(MSH), New York (CvS2)... I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting quite a lot of good themes, but two Wolverine themes?, yuck

If only Capcom listened to customers instead of VP's. Sorry Capcom VP's but instead of re-releasing Darkstalkers just give us the new game. Those games are readily available on any ISO website and PSX emulators run well on even the worst PC's. I personally have around 30 old school psx and ps2 fighting games on my pc all which run perfectly. Ranges from JoJo's Bizarre to MVC2, including all marvel vs and SF vs titles. I even have Capcom Fighting Evolution LOLOLOL, who the hell needs to pay $20 for an outdated fighter when it's free..........................

@17 These games are not $20 dollars, your just inflating the numbers to make it sound worst than it is.

While we all want new games, Capcom has the right to profit from their games regardless of what other platforms they are on.

And not everyone has the old consoles and if you think about it the number of people who own an Xbox 360 or PS3 far outweigh the number of people with PSX's, PC's, and other old consoles and ports. They also don't have any of the extra features, most notibly online mode.

And before someone says "GGP0" as well as other "free" emulators and such. 1: Its illegal (even if Capcom says nothing, they could) to play those games on there without the orignal rom which I assume most people do not have. 2: Again, most people don't have a PC or may not know how to go through all the mess to get a working and clean emulator (Did I mention its illegal?).

I think considering the high demand for these games it is a smart buisness decision to re-release these games in HD with updated modes and graphics.

But again, your one person out of many, I doubt Capcom would miss you if you pass on the game.

@18:
is it okay to have an emulated arcade version of a game if i have a re-release of it on console? (haven't read your whole post)

@17 alot of those ports (especially PS ones) were terrible ports of the games, apart from mame ones. Also those ports don't have internet connectivity so have fun playing by yourself or locally (again mame ones don't count due to excellent service from GGPO and Supercade)

Is doing something illegal morally wrong?

#21
Lemres said on October 14, 2012 at 5:51 p.m.

@18: Actually there was an article way back that I read which explained that downloading roms and playing them on emulators were now legal but only for games that are played on discontinued systems like the Genesis or PS1. And most emulators are legal.

Glad to see TvC getting something... too bad a sequel isn't gonna come anytime soon :(

Came for the Tatsunoko vs Capcom video, and go with a big smile after seen the video. Man, such a great game and pretty much underappreciated, just because it is a Wii exclusive.

Now why do i enjoy TvC CMVs more than UMvC3? Wish it was multi-platform

Kakyoin's Theme is in, it's enough for me.

Proud owner of TvC also, TvC2 on Wii U would be a godly announcement if it did happen. TvC was (is) awesome, it's just a shame that the since the online was bad the community didn't take off like it should of...

But then again if there was a sequel I would just want the same game but with a few more characters and that is about it (apart from better online as well), not much else is wrong with that game.

What a top 30...
Seriously, SFxT ? 2 Wolverine's tracks ? Guile's Theme so underrated ?
And damn, Where is my Q Theme and my 3s Makoto Theme ?

Nanbara said on October 18, 2012 at 12:51 p.m.

Again, for the 2349023942 time. The PSX ports of any CPS2 fighter are *NOT ARCADE PERFECT*, they have terrible loading times, missing animation, missing frames, ugly graphics, the list goes on and on... People constantly bring them up, and I simply don't understand why
