Let’s Talk About a Hypothetical Marvel vs. Capcom 4

I thought Marvel vs. Capcom had bitten the dust off the lackluster performance of Infinite. But recently, a fairly-reliable source has stated that a Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite update is on the way, and it will be renamed Marvel vs. Capcom 4. Whether it’s true or not is beside the point. What I wanted to do was to use this as a jumping-off point for a discussion around a future entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom series. Real or not, what does a hypothetical next entry in the series need to look like in order to rebound from disaster? Continue reading

Is Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Doomed?

2017 was a rough year for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Mired by critics and fans for its sub-par visuals, a short roster sorely lacking in power, and a gameplay shift to 2v2 combat that was perceived as a step back for the franchise, the game floundered upon release. Even Capcom’s eSports efforts, which helped salvage Street Fighter V, sputtered through a tournament season that felt rushed by the organizers and were poorly-attended.

Things only got worse to start 2018. Based on Capcom’s recent financials, the game shipped a million units. Despite being a seven-figure number, Capcom reports that figure as “soft”. Capcom announced the new season of Capcom Cup and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was notably absent. On top of that, EVO announced its 2018 lineup and the game wasn’t included, marking the first time a Marvel vs. Capcom game didn’t make it.

With poor sales and no support from the largest tournament organizers, is it time to put the tombstone on this game and quite possibly, the series?

How to Do Flight Combos in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

One of the coolest aspects of the Marvel vs. Capcom series is the concept of flight combos. Soaring through the skies while repeatedly smacking a hapless foe is always a sight to behold. It’s also one of the hardest concepts to master in these games. During my time with Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I struggled mightily to pull them off in training mode, and almost never attempted them in-match unless I was really in the zone.

With the switch to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, I found myself in a position where I really wanted to play as Ultron, but was intimidated at the prospect of having to learn flight combos in order to score optimal damage. Well, after a few weeks of practice, and after scouring the internet for help, I think I have it down.

Here’s some resources and tips that could help you master the game’s coolest and most damaging combos!

Get the most out of your Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite team with these tips!

The Marvel vs. Capcom series is one built around the concept of team synergy. You’re able to get the most out of the game if you’re able to operate your team as one cohesive unit. Having said that, the game itself doesn’t immediately make it clear what team synergy is. On top of that, the concept of team synergy has changed a few times as the series has evolved.

During my struggles of trying to formulate my own team, I’ve made the following observations about aspects to make note of when you’re trying to polish your team dynamics. Hope these help you out!

Capcom Unveils Black Panther and Sigma for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite

Today, Capcom pulled the lid off of Black Panther and Sigma in this trailer for the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite DLC. From what we can see, Black Panther sort of scratches the Wolverine itch, with his claw-based attacks and boundless agility. Sigma, on the other hand, looks like a big body combination of X and Zero.

This duo, along with the Monster Hunter, will be available on October 18th. Of these characters, I’m most excited for Black Panther filling my Wolverine void, but Sigma and Monster Hunter look great too. We’ll see which ones I end up with!
