Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite stories

Why does Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 feel better than Marvel Infinite? Maximilian highlights one small mechanic that seems to make a big difference

We're just a few weeks away from the infamous Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's third birthday and Maximilian recently took a brief look back at the 2017 title to point out just one small, but crucial design choice that made it feel less satisfying to play than its predecessor.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was an absolute fan favorite for virtually all of its competitive lifespan, and while its general success (as well as Marvel Infinite's general failure) is most definitely multifaceted, something as simple as screen shake effects can actually go a very long way in fighting games.

Marvel vs. Capcom remains a strong performer for Capcom despite the lack of support and turmoil in the past decade

The Marvel vs. Capcom series is probably one of the most fondly remembered and cherished in the fighting game community despite its tumultuous past, present, and future which continues to influence and impact the scene.

Capcom recently updated their games sales figures for the last financial quarter which revealed that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC re-release crossed the 1 million sales mark that, along with some boosted numbers for Infinite, appears to show the series still has life even without active support from the company.

Dormammu has a fly glitch in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite that could give him infinite air movement

We're still seeing tech for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite come from its die-hard fan base. The game offers a wide sea of possibilities thanks to the free tag system and the Infinity Stones, but today's maneuver actually utilizes a glitch to make it work.

Stealthy_Guy on Twitter shared a clip of Dormammu performing some outstanding air movement. Apparently, he can do so by way of a flight glitch, and if perfected, it could potentially give him infinite air movement.

Kirbcen's fighting game art gallery is made up of stunning reworked 3D renders

I recently came across Kirbcen's gallery of fighting game artwork. Although these are 3D renders that have been painted over, you can tell that a great deal of time has been spent on each piece.

One of the first illustrations that you'll see on his Twitter depicts Spider-Man and Dante shaking hands. This is clearly meant to pay homage to the Marvel vs. Capcom series.

How much of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's failure was Disney's fault? Top Hat Gaming explores the troubled history of this infamous title

We knew it had to eventually come as Top Hat Gaming Man has been making his way through Capcom's fighting game history with weekly videos, and his exploration of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is finally here.

This game had so much potential as the fighting game community were highly anticipating it while the general population would most certainly be drawn to the red-hot Marvel characters then being heavily featured across the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it wound up crashing and burning despite having so much natural momentum. While Capcom's execution was certainly to blame, Top Hat asks the question in his video, "How much of Infinite's downfall was due to decisions from Disney?"

Remember that time where Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was advertised with energy bar recipes?

A lot of factors surrounding the development of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite ended up being a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, only 1.4 million sales has been achieved since the game's release on September 19, 2017.

It's been nearly three years since Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was released, but there are still a number of aspects about that game that were... memorable, to say the least. Earlier today, AceKingOffsuit poked fun at a certain advertisement for MvCI that was certainly interesting.

ShuichiWada's ladies of fighting games know just how to get your attention

There wasn't a ton of fighting game art to be found on ShuichiWada's Twitter page, but the 10 images we did find are all well worth sharing.

It's clear that the Japanese artist has a preference for drawing the more feminine fighters (save for a great Super Saiyan Trunks sketch). It's also clear that they're exceedingly good at what they do as we found ourselves melting at the sight of Android 18's icy blue eyes upon first viewing.

Here's a roundup of awesome Jill Valentine and Nemesis Marvel vs. Capcom beatdowns in honor of tomorrow's Resident Evil 3 remake release

Especially after last year's super successful Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom fans are on the edge of their seats for tomorrow's (April 3) highly anticipated release of the Resident Evil 3 remake.

Capcom's survival horror franchise has provided a ton of memorable highlights, and one of the most impacting of them all has to be the way the RE3's most fearsome antagonist, Nemesis, chases Jill Valentine in anxiety-spiking games of cat and mouse throughout the story. These heart-stopping interactions are surely a major part of why both Jill and Nemesis have made multiple appearances in Capcom's Versus series titles.

The rage quit at the end of this brutal Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite beatdown from Captain America and X makes it even better

It's always a good day when we find a Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite gem like this to share. A Mega-Man X and Captain America player by the name of Miguel "SCMike" Poblete nailed a particularly insane combo while recently streaming, and demoralized his foe (almost understandably) to the point of rage quitting.

The match starts and Mike's X actually takes an early beam blast from the opposing Ultron, but that's all the damage either of the clearly competent competitor's characters would take as the tide instantly turns in his favor in a big way.

Sigma tags at a bad time and eats the full wrath of the Time Stone in this devastating Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite clip

The Versus series of fighting games can quickly see situations where a character who isn't on point can come in and get hit with no way to defend themselves. It becomes up to the point character to save them, but if the main fighter gets knocked out... there's little that can be done to rescue the assist.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite works a bit differently, as it's a 2v2 fighter, but the same concept can be employed when a character is tagged in and the other still has yet to leave the screen. This awesome clip from TheJakoMan shows just how bad things can get in the blink of an eye.

Teppen adds Zero from the Mega Man X series as its latest playable character with the new Haunted by Memories expansion

Akuma was the last character to come to the Capcom crossover card game Teppen, and now the newest hero, while he didn't get his start in fighting games, also has quite the ties to the FGC — though many here may view him as a villain.

Zero from the Mega Man X series is now available as Teppen's fourth post-launch playable character with the Haunted by Memories expansion which is quite fitting given the character and new mechanic.

That awkward moment when you make the correct read in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite but still lose

It's not every day we post about Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, but when a "bruh moment" (as poster, Jako Man, puts it) as hilarious as this happens, we have to share.

We visit a match en media res between Dormammu and Nemesis, both having lost their partners and vying for the win. Nemesis comes armed with a Resident Evil rocket launcher, which he uses to try to get the last bit of health from his foe's life bar.
