Oh, Capcom. Ohhh, Capcom.

Capcom, you really did a great job. A great job of losing a customer, forever. First you refuse Ace Attorney Investigations 2 an english release, and then you do this.

You cancel Megaman Legends 3. Okay, I get it. Alot of gaming companies cancel games, I know. But some people bought a 3DS for the sole purpose of Megaman Legends 3. People who played the first 2 games nearly a decade ago, and had all their hopes up. People who were long-term fans of the Megaman series, and enjoyed the games up until now. Including myself. You were doing a great job with this. You were letting fans contrubute ideas. Ideas that were seriously considered, and were planned for use in the game. I can't tell you how brilliant that idea sounds. The project was going so well. Alot of people were looking forward to the game. So what do you do? Cancel it. You disappoint hundreds- no, thousands of fans. You freaking douchebags.

Okay, to the people reading this, you may think I'm getting too worked up over a video game getting canceled. Well, no. I already said it. Game companies sometimes cancel games. It happens. But at least those companies don't go ahead, and blame their fans for their cancelation. The fans that have made them what they are, the fans that have supported them, been loyal to them!

"it's a shame the fans didn't want to get more involved :-( if we saw there was an audience for MML3 people might change minds"

Capcom of Europe tweeted that in public. Let me say this now, Capcom. You suck as a company. That's bullcrap. There were over 10, 000 fans helping you out. What, you want us to make the game for you? Are you freaking kidding me? What's wrong with you? Even with all those fans helping you out, you're making up total crap like this? In public as well? Why the hell would you do that?! Do you not even care about public image?

Re-releasing games with slight extra features about 4 times consecutively is okay, but releasing a game that fans have been anticipating for ages, fans that have had specially reserved, a game that thousands of fans were willing to buy is not okay. Why would you do this?

What I'm going to say is true Capcom. Megaman is what made you popular. There are other great franchises you started, like Street Fighter, or Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, but none of them add up to the popularity Megaman gave you. Most people around have played at least one Megaman game, it's something fans recognize you for. So what do you do? Ditch it. Bravo, Capcom. Bravo. And screw you.

I really don't want to say anymore. Keep in mind I won't be buying any more of your games, though. Because as I've said many times in this post, you suck. Hard. Thank you.

    I'm not a Megaman person, and I don't really play any Capcom games. I don't really think that game was the only catalyst for the 3DS. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS was another huge game as well.

    Blaming the fans is just their way of using the fans as a scapegoat for the game being scrapped. Instead of telling the real reason, they blame their fanbase? The fans were scapegoated into taking the blame for something they advocated and pushed for? Makes no sense at all.

    That's all I have to say.

    Yes, Ocarina of Time 3D was a great factor to the 3DS. But that's just one game. At the moment, the 3DS hardly has any good games, and it feels like Capcom was scared of that fact. It's stupid. These past few years, it feels like Capcom has been extremely paranoid about money. More than any company should be. It's also making make terrible, terrible decisions.

    Not to mention the Megaman Fanbase is fairly large as well. Just turning their backs on them, after the help and supported they provided, and then blaming them is freaking ridiculous.

    I feel Capcom doesn't even care about the Megaman franchise anymore. First they cancel Megaman Universe, and now this, and on top of this Megaman X received the top amount of votes to be added to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 but what do they do of course not add him. At least the fans are trying to show they are wanting their beloved game through this http://www.facebook.com/GetMeOffTheMoon so far they got 19k are are trying to get to 100k. What gets me is they couldn't even look at the sales of downloads from MML3 Prototype that was supposed to be on Eshop so I don't know how they could say this would not produce enough money if they didn't even let fans test drive it so to speak.
