Uneven. Bizarre.

At least they're actually telling people who they are though, as they should if they're selling them. Do that with SFV from now on.

Now that Venom's out of the way, get working on Green Goblin.

We are hard at work on these characters and can’t wait to show them to you when they are ready!

First of all, thats an amazing pull.

Second, that would be the biggest troll move in the history of videogames, can you fucking imagine?

Also, a company is announcing all the DLC in a season pass before the game is officially released... thats kinda noteworthy I think?

Between Gamora and what Black Widow probably plays like, Jill would need a major overhaul not to seem redundant.

Jill deserves her MvC2 design, so by all means please use that playstyle on Black Widow.

If she looks like ScarJo AoU Widow then fine by me.

But what the fuck is that parity? Why are there four Marvel characters?

This entire game has been unpredictable from day one, for both better and worse.

Edit: Also lol that the official mode listing still makes no mention of online training.

Nah, not really. This is more as an informal way of telling people what they are getting in the SP BEFORE the game drops so they can make a call on what they wanna buy. Then they can drop trailers as the weeks go by to keep hype up. Dumping all of the trailers/pics/whatever now leaves people to believe that the characters are already done and is shit marketing.

Still, they could have done outlines like IJ2 and SFV did, but at least we KNOW who they are compared to SFV's weirdly blank DLC stuff.

While Marvel vs. Capcom: Infiniteís tag-team fights are like a bolt of lightning from Mjolnir, its story is dreadful and its characters look like they were deliberately designed to spawn a million derpy memes. It manages to be easily one of the worst and also one of the best fighting games in recent memory all at once.

Well if costumes cost the same as SFV ($3.99) then the characters might too.

I'm okay with them disrupting roster balance to add in more female characters. Not gonna buy for a week or two though to wait and see how the online works out and because I don't want to add to their week 1 numbers for this half baked launch and horrible roster/art style.

No Nick tho despite him being the star of one of Capcoms only consistent franchises nowadays 🙄

Lol Polygon reviews.

But srsly, game is reviewing about evenly with SFV. Not as good as I thought but certainly not a trainwreck.

Question is if sales will be even worse because people know better, or better because of Marvel.

4 Marvel 2 Capcom seems odd.

Black Widow doesn't excite me at all seeing as she'd probably play pretty similarly to existing characters.

I really hope they go deep enough into the DLC to include interesting, non-MCU, oddball characters.

Green Goblin, Sandman, Mysterio, Kamala Khan, Squirrel Girl etc could all have really fun, diverse playstyles instead of yet more rushdown/gun characters.

Every fighting game story is fucking dumb. GG was dumb as shit and got TOO anime for my tastes (with a bunch of weird retcons, Slayer able to get dunked on by Bedman? Nah fuck outta here.). INJ2 was probably the best, but the pacing was awful, Supergirl was insufferable, character fights feel like they happen just because (and half the cast is just written off and doesn't do all that much), and both Batman and Superman are insufferable. Tekken was bombastic but only the ending was good - everything else was a forced trainwreck. SFV was a saturday morning cartoon - all fluff and not much substance, taking the good and bad of that.

Fighting game story modes should just focus on providing as much fanservice as possible and dump the pretense that they'll be some heavy handed Bioshock shit. That'll be better for everyone involved.
