Excerpt: A long time ago, early in 2011, a fighting game was released that was the continuation of every comic book gamer’s dream come true. Marvel VS Capcom 3 featured 36 fighters from two of the most loved universes, with Marvel characters like Spider-man, Wolverine, The Hulk, Thor and Iron Man – what a...
Excerpt: Why Capcom? Didn't you learn anything from Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Didn't you see what I said about the game in my half-year special of the worst games of the year?
