Preview / Marvel Vs Capcom 3
Any and all allowance money I received (as well as any money that falls out of birthday cards) went towards Marvel Vs Capcom 2. I can't say that I ever got exceptionally good at the game, I'm not pretending to be one of those pros that was obsessed with it. But any home console game just couldn't compare with what was offered on an arcade cabinet. Everything moved so fast and slick in MvC2. It was unlike anything I had seen before.
I always ended up using the same 3 characters in MvC2. Rogue, Wolverine, and Cyclops. I have no idea why I stuck with those same characters. Maybe it was because I was spending my own cash and so I wanted to make sure I could last long enough to get my money's worth. Since those days more than 12 years ago I haven't played any MvC2. Only last year was it available on PS3 through the PSN for a measly $14.99 at the time. I still find myself using those exact 3 characters and still doing pretty well, never well enough to beat the game though, even on the easiest difficulty sadly.
Speaking of the characters, how about we write out a list (I have a love affair with lists) of all the playable fighters that have been announced/leaked so far. Most of the character info came from the following link on Neverknowtech.com. I'll also take the time to provide links to each fighter leaked so far (leaked, so take it with a grain of salt just in case) so anyone can look up what game or comic they are from. I'm also going to be adding a gameplay video that I've found, this video is the one that absolutely sold me on the game. Enjoy!
