A sneak peak into the mind of a Marvel vs Capcom competitor.
Oh hi there. My name is Damien Rodwell Jenkins aka dancegrenade, I play Marvel vs Capcom 3 professionaly and Team Tentacle Rape is who i run with. LMFAO i wanna say that in a interview in the future or something. For real though i plan to put a lot of energy to Marvel and see how far it can take me, while still having fun and enjoying life in the process.
I love all fighters, but the only ones i ever really tried to learn and get good at were, Third Strike, Blazeblu, Garou Mark of the Wolves, Super Smash Brothers Brawl (only cause of Solid Snake i promise you this D:) and Vanilla Street Fighter IV. I played Marvel vs Capcom 2 and loved it but i got really intimated watching all the higher level players do shit i couldnt even comprehend. So i chose to sit back and watch and learned pretty much all i needed to know to understand what the heck was going on screen. Third Strike is probably my favorite out of all the games i mentioned. I just really loved Urien as a character and the way he was played. Aegis Reflector has to be coolest fucking thing in the Street Fighter universe. You get to be really creative with it and do really fancy and also viable bullshit all freaking day! I really love evil characters as well, who say really bad ass things that would just be out of control to say to anybody.
I could go on and on of why i love Marvel so much. Crossovers are always pretty fucking dope, and mixing these crazy epic individuals to form teams to fight amongst each other is just over the top and possibly one of the greatest ideas ever thought of. The hype this game generates when you see players do epic shit is on a whole new level of euphoria, and needs to be appreciated and recognized. I plan to make people say "Dude this guy is really fucking good" when they see me rape with Team Tentacle Rape! Well i am still not sure of the team name, but i do know who the team will consist of. Jill Valentine, Sentinel, and Shuma Gorath.
Jill Valentine has always been sick to me since Resident Evil 3. Anyone who survives a zombie apocalypse is pretty dope in my book. On top of that, she is a part of S.T.A.R.S which is tight as fuck. She is pretty hott as well so that kinda works too. Nah but really i love humans with no super powers that kick ass, especially those that are experts at survival.
Sentinel has always just been an awesome character and i really love the idea of like controlling a giant robot that specializes in killing people who were born with super natural abilities and such. Also i like the idea of having a tank on my team who can absorb some damage while dealing some.
Shuma Gorath is just pure awesome. Anyone who wants to know his orgins and what not should wiki him or something i can't explain in words how awesome i think he is. Just the idea that this super powerful being is just a big eye ball with tentacles and can shape shift and do all these other unimaginable things just makes me graviate to learning such a unique character.
I plan to use each of these characters at max potential, and given that each of these characters are really unique and have lots to bring to the table, i shall have some awesome results. Getting in the lab with these 3 characters is all i dream about. I don't know how exactly these characters will compliment each other, but i have such a strong a feeling i will be satisfied and make it work. Jills speed, Sentinels Defense, and Shumas Power will take me to victory.
Too bad i have to wait till March to try out Shuma and Jill. That's okay cause that gives me time to learn a little about th e rest of the cast so i won't be as surprised with certain matchups and i can use this knowledge to greatly increase my teams strength.
Anyone who doesnt have a clue what I am talking about should check out this video
Well goodluck to everyone who is buying this game and plans on competing. Hope to see you at future tournaments!
P.S Leave some comments on what teams you will be using and why! Always nice to hear thoughts from other people.
yet another pic showing a potential character for MVC3
I found this pic online and you can see his health bar on the right.
At this point I dont know what to think but it looks legit to me..........what do you guys think?
I REALLY hope this is real becuz M.bison OWNS.................PSYCHO CRUSHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gouki.com got to play Marvel VS Capcom 3 all day. Check out our thoughts and these exclusive gameplay videos.
After playing Marverl VS Capcom 3 all day long yesterday. I sit here today only wanting to play more. MvC3 is one of the most spectacular looking video games I've seen in years. The colors and effects on screen are simply amazing. Capcom, Marvel have out done themselves. Marvel VS Capcom 3 is the sequel fans have wanted for over 10 years.
The character selection is great, there's a ton of classic characters you can use like Magneto and Captain America. The new characters are strange, but I'm really glad that both companies did some reaching. For example The Dog and the Bionic Commando Jimmy from Capcom and M.O.D.O.K. and TaskMaster from the depths of Marvels character catalog. Really cool stuff.
DLC characters in the future also have tons of potential, unless Shuma and Jill are the disc. If they are on the disc we could be screwed, but if not well then that opens the door for more characters to be downloadable content. There was rumor of M. Bison being in the game, but that could have been Photoshoped right? MvC2 had over 50 characters, I expect this roster to grow too.
Something I didn't like for instance were the stages, there's only like 6-7 stages to do battle on. You can't do versus on Galactus' stage, which doesn't make sense to me. No spectator mode is a really bad idea. I think that not haveing a spectator mode turns the game into more of a party game with friends in house, other than playing online. I'm not gonna sit on a blank screen while I wait for others to fight. Why does Capcom go backwards with some of these designs. It's odd to me that you can't do versus against the computer, practicing in training mode and doing the trials will only take you so far. Although the best experience you're probably going to get is online. Get ready for that Dante, Wolverine and Deadpool match up every time. Don't be a Jimmy!
Finally we were lucky enough to capture a few matches:

I don't really get whats wrong with the decision of characters in Marvel Vs Capcom 3.
Now everyone has been anticipating the charcarters for Marvel VS Capcom 3. And they say with every week there should be a new character. But it seems like they are deconfirming more than they are announcing. Its easier for us to cross out a lot of people and get closer to the final list. Also the way they decide if a character is gonna be in it or not doesn't make sense. Like with Strider Hiryu, "Strider Hiryu is popular overseas as well, we took him out of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, because he didn't fit in with its concept." Am I the only one who thinks what the fuck are you thinking. He's popular and you can build more moves onto him. He doesn't fit in with its concept? Look at the game you have tentacle monsters(Shuma Gorath) and a fat head on a jetpack ( M.O.D.O.K). How do those fit into the concept? I'm not a really big fan of Strider but it doesn't click with me that they are deconfirming characters that I believe would be really fun to play (Phoenix Wright, Silver Surfer, etc) Any thoughts on this?

I don't even know why I'm still posting these. Here's another video is Desk showing off something ridiculous. But I think it's worth watching because of Cap's reputation of being a " bad character"
Many people don't play Captain America. He has good strength and techniques but he just doesn't seem to cut it out for most. Behold one of the easiest infinites you will ever see. It is basically sweep into shield slash spam. Can be comboed into super or snapback easily. Requires no meter, assist or xfactor. So far it works on 35/16 of the roster and on some characters you may need to throw in a jumping SS to continue the combo. Enjoy and leave a comment below ;)

A very short interview with Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma was done by Videogamer.com. It talks about why Frank West was cut from the game, and that Phoenix Wright was considered. Check it out.
The interview is very short so I'm just going to paste it below with some added photos.
Given his presence in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Dead Rising's Frank West was a shoe-in for Marvel vs Capcom 3, but that's not the case. Producer Ryota Niitsuma has explained that Frank was cut from the game's roster at a late stage, despite the work that had already been put into his character.
"As for Frank West, he was actually in the process quite deep, and in one of our high quality CG trailers he was actually part of it," Niitsuma told VideoGamer.com at the end of last week. "But we've taken him out, due to the fact that we've foreseen some extra work involved, just from the nature of his moves. We felt we could direct our resources to better use, so we've taken Frank out."
Another Capcom favourite who hasn't made the line-up is plucky lawyer Phoenix Wright. But while Wright may not be naturally suited to the fighting genre, Niitsuma seems happy to consider his future inclusion - provided that MvC3 gains a following.
"Phoenix Wright is obviously a famous franchise - especially in Europe, actually. It would be interesting to see him, although he distinctively lacks the number of moves he might have [in a fighting game]. But if Marvel vs. Capcom 3 does well, he's definitely up on the list as one of the characters to add, given the chance."
What do you Jimmys think? Will Frank West make his appearance as DLC seeing as they put a ton of work in him already? What about Phoenix Wright? I for one have no Objection on his inclusion (see what I did there).

A new trailer and a new character
By: Cinderkin Oct 9, 2010 | 6 Comments
Marvel held their panel today at the New York Comic-Con. They formally announced that Magneto and MODOK will be joining the other cast members of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and added a few minor notes about the game.
• It was stated that Blade and Mojo wouldn't be playable characters.
• You'll see off-the-wall characters cameos in the endings, Blade, Mojo, Ghost Rider, Kingpin and others.
• While Doctor Doom and Wesker assembled a cast of villains that could destroy both Capcom and Marvel's worlds, a greater threat arises during the process. This might be Dormammu, as hinted at in previous trailers.
Check out below the 3 new gameplay videos featuring Magneto and MODOK. Also we've got some screens that you can check out as well.
What hope did you have against the master of magnetism?
Fire Fire Fire!!!!!

The fighting game Community in Maui has exploded in the last couple of months due to one random idea. (Finals match link inside!)
For a long time me, my friend Eli and Dwyane thought we were the best on Maui when it came to majority of fighting games out there (except Tekken). So a couple of months ago while at my house Eli was like " Yo, let's make an event on Facebook, a SSF4 and MVC3 tournament at the college and see who will come" I thought it was an amazing idea and we went on with it. Me and 2 other friends brought a system and our games. The Maui College has a huge student lounge that is open almost the whole day that anyone an go to, and we were surprised by all the people who showed up. Learning that there were people as good as us in some games and better in others was amazing. That day we didn't get around to a tournament, I believe there was like 8 hours of casuals, leading to us becoming good friends with a lot of the guys who stayed until closing.
Soon after one of the guys we met created a group of Facebook called Maui Street Fighter. Here we planned the next events and settled that we would meet up every Wednesday for SSF4 tournaments and mvc3 casuals (not too many people played mvc3, so a small tourney would be lame) Every Wednesday the amount of people grew and everyone's skill levels increased.
Things have gotten to a point where we had a good idea on who was bringing what set-ups and we could run our events at the school easily. The lounge is open from about 8 am to 9 pm. The security guards have gotten used to seeing around 30 dudes getting super hyped over games, so sometimes they let us stay till 11 to finish our events <3
A big surprise about a week ago was a huge influx in new people! The best part was, they were Marvel and Tekken players. This led up to us having 3 actual tournaments in a night (which is hard to fit in when you do them one by one). Tekken was singles (since it had the smallest entrants), Marvel was teams of 2 and SSF4 AE was teams of 3.
I love playing MVC3 casuals and felt pretty confident in the tournament. I didn't play Tekken and my SSF4 team got OCV'd by my close friend who plays me all the time; knew it was coming :p My teamate for Marvel was Adi, a guy who I felt pretty even with in skill leading up to more confidence (he played Wolverine, She-Hulk Storm and Wesker). He went first, beating the first few teams by himself and I didn't have to play. But when it came to the semi-finals and finals, he lost every set and I carried the way (which added more pressure than I thought it would).
In the end, it came down to me playing Morrigan, X-23 and Wesker vs. a really strong Hulk-She-Hulk and Dormmamu. (Before that I played his teamate in a very interesting battle with me playing Mageto, x-23 and Wesker and him playing Magneto, X-23 Dommamu) Both of us were dropping combos towards the end and I purposely didn't punish some things because I knew if I messed up one bit, I would have died ; ended up playing it safe. The photographer was nice enough to upload a video of the final match, but it is only on Facebook, I'm not sure if you will be able to view it upon signing in (I HOPE SO! IT'S GODLIKE) If anything, I'll share it on the Gouki.com wall.
So Adi and I won! Split the prize $ and took a bro-photo. It was truly a great tournament and a great experience. Glare makes me look cross-eyed but that's ok. Everyone attending the Maui College fighting events are awesome people and it is great that our community has grown so much from a friend saying " Brah let's make a event on Facebook". It's so hype having over 30 people in a room with many different play-styles and skills. Hopefully I can get more pictures from the guy or videos.
~Shout-outs to Gouki.com, Adi and I played on the MVC3 stick the entire time~
