Marvel vs. Capcom 3 walk speed comparison

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 walk speed comparison A new walk speed comparison page for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is now available here on EventHubs.com.

If you want to see how the character's walking speeds compare with one another, this is a good spot to look as everyone's forward movement rate is broken down into tiers and screen shots are also included so you'll know how much distance they can travel in regards to the rest of the cast.

Here's a little 411 on how this information was gathered.

All of the characters were captured at 60 frames per second starting at the max distance possible and then having them walk forward.

Each clip was placed on the frame right before the fighter's walking animation begins. The clip was then advanced 75 frames and a screen shot was taken. This way all of the characters started at the same time and advanced the exact same number of frames — so no one got a head start.

The order the characters are listed in — from fastest to slowest — was decided by overlaying all 36 images and using the grid lines on the training stage as a points of reference. Because some of the characters stick out random appendages and generally all have different stances while they're walking, their bodies couldn't accurately be used to judge the distance traveled, instead going by how much the camera had or hadn't panned proved to be much more accurate.

You'll always be able to find this guide permalinked in the MvC3 section here on the website.

Updated: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has connection issues, Capcom aware

Updated: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has connection issues, Capcom aware Unrelated to the post about other glitches just put up, IGN has an article explaining that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is giving some online users problems.

If you've been playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 online — or trying to — you've likely had an experience similar to ours. Lost connections and an irritating cycle of menus have kept us offline in the days following the game's release. Fortunately, Capcom's aware of the issues on PS3 and Xbox 360 and assures us that a fix is on the way.

"Due to the high volume of people playing MvC3 at launch, some are experiencing connection issues with online matches. We are looking into these issues in order to fix the problem and ensure a smooth online experience."

Update: Zidiane and xMrTransparentx shared a potential solution for people running into this issue.

I've had problems like this, too. What I did was set the region to same, the language to English, and the skill level to same. That has worked for me, and I no longer lose connections and get into matches every single time.

Seth Killian says leaked info is a low point of career

Seth Killian says leaked info is a low point of career On MTV Multiplayer's developer pop quiz series, Capcom's Seth Killian is the man of the hour. This article mostly focuses on Seth's career and opinion of video game industry as a whole, but it also delves into fighting games.

Killian at one point says that leaked info for games has been a low point of his career. Here's a snip from the page.

What has been the low point of your career?

Seth: Leaked info and ripped games can be pretty heartbreaking. I understand the motivations, and often it comes from your biggest fans that are extremely hungry for information or a chance to play early, but it can really end up hurting the game and a company's relationship with its fans over the long term.

What do you think is the biggest problem current games suffer from?

I think one of the biggest problems with games is language. We don't have great language to talk about so much of what matters most in a game. If you play a platformer with a bad jump, that's simple enough, and it totally sucks, but how can you put that into words that anyone can understand? It's a problem for developers, but it's also a problem for evangelizing games to the wider world that still thinks of them as kid-stuff. As a player you can understand the glory of a game masterpiece from the inside, and share that experience with others on the inside, but how do you translate that experience for someone that isn't going to devote the time in the first place? Film, literature, and even abstract art have been able to do it, but most game discussions still fall flat in terms of translating their glories to people that don't already play.

Capcom follows up again on delayed Marvel vs. Capcom 3 store orders

Capcom follows up again on delayed Marvel vs. Capcom 3 store orders Users who ordered Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from the official Capcom Store, but did not receive the game until a later time will receive some form of compensation, according to a blog post on Capcom-Unity.

We also pride ourselves in our customer service. This past week, something that was beyond our control occurred and it affected the shipping of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 for some of our customers. 83% of orders were unaffected and shipped out on time. Unfortunately 17% did not and on a game launch of this size, that is not insignificant. We've been reading your messages and listening to you on the forums.

We want to convey to you that your business is important to us and that we appreciate you as fans and as customers. With that being said, we are working on some fantastic ideas to help compensate the customers whose orders were affected by this shipping incident. The details of this will be revealed soon, but know that it will be something worthwhile.

Thanks again for shopping with the Capcom Store. Please don’t let this experience dissuade you from ordering some of the great products and pre-order bonuses that we have planned for in the future.
