@HeroOfCybertron Probably Capcom, and probably for financial reasons. Maybe just maybe they're finding that selling v.3 of an arcade fighting game for $40/unit doesn't fly in this market. In other words, they're probably shrinking out of desperation, not just greed or stupidity. All speculation on my part but that's what internet comments are all about.

flojomojo commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

When I think of 3DS and Vita, I think Nintendo, Sony, and Indie games. Maybe a little Ubisoft since they're on everything. I can't recall any big name portable EA games since their licensed tie-ins to The Lord of the Rings. I wouldn't think that their $30 Plants vs. Zombies packages did well in sales.

It's probably simpler (and therefore cheaper, which means more profitable) for them to develop for mobile. Their driving games have been pretty fun and they have Popcap and Bioware. I don't hate them as much as many people do. Unlike many other game studios, at least they are still in business, and much of that is probably because of what we see as duck moves.

flojomojo commented on Talking Point: The GameCube Controller Adapter...:

Nintendo's controller support is a confusing mess of extra crap to lose, break, and charge. It's nice that they're supporting the old controllers, but without a rerelease of the (excellent) Wavebird, this just adds a mess of cords to the otherwise nicely wireless Wii U console. Adding in these retro things now is similar to supporting the Gameboy Link Cable accessory.

Of course, if they remake the Rogue Squadron games in HD, I'll forgive them for adding so much crap to my game drawer.

I wish Super Mario Bros 3 were "cross buy" like Sony or Apple (buy once, play on Wii U and 3DS) but I guess we can't have that ... at least I get the Wii U for a sharp discount since I have the Wii Virtual Console version, right?

Very excited for this. I wish they hadn't pooched the release of Outrun 2006 (no US PS3 version, pulled Steam version, no digital PSP release) but M2 Outrun on 3DS could redeem them. Given the pattern of the last batch, maybe the west will see an autumn release?

This is really bizarre ... why would anyone want ANY of those portable games on a big screen? They already look silly-bad on the 3DS XL, and that's still pretty tiny.

If these games were to be remade completely, maybe I'd be interested, but as they are? I'd prefer to keep them portable. Add SNES and N64 games to the 3DS while you're at it.

flojomojo commented on Remake Request: Virtua Fighter 2:

I would love a portable version of this game, or maybe one of its many sequels. Tekken and Street Fighter are already on everything, why not VF? It's criminal that this hasn't happened already.

Until then, Dead or Alive is a decent substitute, some technical fighting with a clean control system. The old Saturn version was great. The current iteration of Dead or Alive is brilliant on Vita and not too shabby on 3DS.

While we're asking, how come Dead or Alive and Tekken aren't digital downloads on the eShop in North America? I'd buy them again ...
