    Vote for what MegaMan Volnutt looks like in Mega Man Legends 3!

    Personally, I like the colors of A, the shoes of C, and everything else is B.

    Best starts with a B.

    I'm voting C. I totally agree with the "underwear-like pants" criticism of designs A and B.

    I also voted for C. The less robotic gloves and the desighn of the shoulder pads did it for me.

    I voted C. I'm fine with B, but I don't want to reuse the MML2 design.

    I went B, but I do like the smoother armor of C. The lack of the robo undies just feels wrong to me.

    According to Gaf, they will be releasing a prologue to MML3 on 3DSWare that will cost 2.50. The funds will go toward funding the final product.

    ...so why is Capcom, a company with huge amounts of money at their disposal, making these guys essentially go out onto the street and panhandle?

    Probably because Capcom doesn't want to fund the game themselves. This seems like a labor of love, as Capcom makes sure we know they are not the ones pushing to get this made.

    I wonder just how much they are having to fund themselves to get this made.

    Yea, with Inafune's exit, it seems Capcom has all but written off Mega Man as one of their top tier characters. It makes me sad, as Mega Man is up there with characters like Mario, Samus, and Ratchet that I love.

    I'll have to find a way to buy the prototype before actually getting a hold of a 3DS somehow. Can I just mail some change in an envelope to Capcom?

    They can't charge for it. They need as much publicity as they can get for a game they're not sure it'll even sell. I actually like the new character, which surprises me a lot.

    I really don't understand Capcom these days. I'm more and more understanding why Inafune quit. It still baffles me how much they can shit over their #1 franchise just because they are pissed at Inafune (or at least, that's what it looks like)

    Bad choice of words - it is (or was) their flagship franchise though. He was basically their mascot. They threw Mega Man on everything.


    (also cumulatively there are like fifty bazillion Mega Man games so I imagine it's likely the overall largest grossing franchise they have, even if newer games don't sell as well)

    I still like Capcom games, Resident Evil and Dead Rising in particular

    But yeah, what the hell is this. Essentially forcing their own employees to get funding from elsewhere just to get a video game with their IP made

    It's total nonsense

    But I will pay for that demo and I will pay whatever they ask for it

    MegaMan Legends 3 is something that the world deserves

    Reading the Joystiq article, apparently beating it unlocks a debug mode that lets you explore in-development areas of the game. Which is actually pretty damn cool.

    Yeah, the price is good. I'm glad they aren't milking it.

    While I dislike the concept of paying for a demo, the fact they are putting a debug mode in there makes it interesting enough to make up for that.

    Plus I'm all for supporting the developers here since Capcom sure as hell isn't. I do hate the fact that Capcom is probably going to profit like hell off this though given the way they've treated the project.

    This is very much like the MM2 debacle, it's a self funded labor of love that the company has no confidence in but will probably make bank on.

    Yup, which honestly has me excited. Games like that tend to be pretty special because the developers devote that much more attention to making them great.

    So, what if enough people don't buy the demo? Will the game be canceled?

    Also, it's kind of weird that the first actual gameplay footage we've seen doesn't even include Mega Man Volnutt, but some random new guy that we've never even heard of until now.

    Which is a shame, because what I think people look for most is a fundamental sense of solidity. Screenshots are almost completely worthless for showing what a game will actually be like, while a skeleton of a game can give you a good idea for what you'll be getting once the flesh is added.

    Maybe?

    Honestly though, it will be one of the first things in the 3DSWare shop. That alone should earn it quite a few sales since it won't have much competition, *great* visibility, and it's well-priced.

    Mega Man Network has a link to additional Mega Man Legends 3 footage.

    My impressions:

    * Wow, the overworld looks much bigger this time around.
    * Barret has a hover bike that you can drive around the island.
    * Wait, Barret can dash, run-up walls short distances, and deliver jumping kicks? Damn, they better give Mega Man Volnutt some new abilities, or else this Barret guy is going to outshine him in his own game!
    * There's a closed store with the Bonne logo in town. Maybe the store that the Bonnes talked about in Mega Man Legends 2 will be open for business in Mega Man Legends 3.

    Case Zero had a unique area with unique missions and a unique story, and all the features of the full game, just in a smaller space and with fewer items, and a level cap

    It was less a demo and more a game, while also having the desired effect of whetting people's appetites for more Dead Rising, or if not, then at least they got five bucks out of them while providing them with enough zombie killing to satisfy

    This meanwhile, sounds like it's just straight up "here's some missions from the full game or what we hope will be the full game and then there's some debug mode shit you can do so please pay to see it or else we won't get to make it because Capcom isn't giving us any money"

    And that is horseshit, because Capcom should be giving these people all the money in the world
