The lights are on
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just punched us in the eyes, and we totally loved it.
This is the first time we’ve played a new Marvel vs. Capcom title in nearly a decade. What did we think of it? Below are some off-the-cuff impressions:
Holy hell, this game is fast; should please fans of the series.
The new launch button is great for throwing dudes into the air. This makes air combat a little easier, but I’m still going to have to practice my combos.
Switching characters is easier than ever; just hold back and hit the assist button.
Switching character in the middle of a hyper combo does not cause any slow down, and it looks crazy!
Chris Redfield is okay; might have to spend some time with this character before I get the feel for him.
Just launched a dude into the air with Captain America, jumped up, and slapped him a few times, then brought in Dante, who knocked him to the ground and stomped on his head before I brought in Ryu in to finish the job. Who says the Hulk is indestructible?
Deadpool kicks ass…and he’s hilarious. He does a moonwalk when he walks backwards. His super is pretty cool too. Good team-up with Captain America and Dante.
I’m definitely buying this game.
I hope Squirrel Girl is in it.

The fact that they havn't announced spiderman yet has me extremely troubled.
awesome i want to smash the Hulks head in so bad
Squirrel Girl? Really? All she does is call in a *** load of squirrels to attack people. Acually...That would be kind of kool...
I have been waiting for a next gen version of this game and glad to hear the gameplay is good. nothing is better then dishing out a beatdown with your favorite marvel characters.
I've already seen a bunch of videos of this game. It is EXTREMELY fast, and the combos i've seen usually take off over half a character's health.
Dante's Devil Trigger is also pretty cool, yet seems like it can be abused since it uses only one Hyper Combo gauge and he gains more of it as he attacks while in DT mode.
Also, i think Chris might be the new Cable, with all his guns and all that. Probably not nearly as broken though.
I can't wait for this game. I hope Dr. Doom's in it.
I cannot wait for this game.
You're not the only one hoping for the buck toothed Great Lake Avenger...
I'm gonna go get MvC 2 and prepare for this game!
This is Awesome, can't wait to hear more info.
This might be my first ever 2D fighting game!
i cant wait. and at the noob. of course spider mans in it. why else would they have his stage in the game.
IGN and Game Trailers have a slew of videos on this amazing anticipated game! it's actually a bit intimidating to me because of the pace. the fights are LONG and the combos look fun to perform. i am probably one of a few people who hasn't played none of the Vs. Capcom titles so this will be my first. i know it will be worth it!
So pumped for this, I need a spidey though.
I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, but the characters call out each others' name. Captain America even called Iron Man "Tony." It's also the little things that count.
could be good.
not a huge fan of fighting games, but this game looks like a definite buy
I love that this game looks like a comic book! When I saw it in action today, I suddenly didn't mind that it was so bright and colorful. Like Seth Killian said, screenshots definitely don't do it justice.
man, i'm still digging through ssfiv, i can't imagine getting a new fighter! with all these characters, unbelievably fast and hectic pace, and (what i assume) is a multitude of depth, its just so intimidating! it looks just awesome though
