MVC2 was just X-men vs. Street Fighter and friends. MVC3 has enough X-men characters already, give me someone else.

Well, I am sure most of us who paid money to play the game would take Cyclops over any of the guys listed. Was that too much too ask Capcom? The f-ing mutant messiah, one of Marvel's most iconic and leader of the most popular Marvel comic...The only reedming factor is Phoenix Wright is finally in this game.

there are already enough X-Men characters. No More.
 
I like the new ones.

I thought there were plenty considering the entire MU is involved
 
Wolverine
Storm
Phoenix
Deadpool
Magneto

And X-23 and Sentinel (enemy) but it is quite unbelievable no Cyclops or Gambit at least.

The only X-Men I think who could be added is Psylock (but that's it!!)

I miss Rogue, but I can understand why she's not in the game so yeah, I think they have enough X-Men.

I like a lot of the new characters and I think Cyke, Psylocke and Gambit would have each been a good choice for a returning character 
but I don't think there's any shortage of X-Men so far 
@Edgeworth_11
actually, Nova's my favorite new character to be revealed 
he's a total badass and I have a feeling he will own 
and he's only like the GL's because their both intergalactic space police 
the similarties end there

as far as the Capcom side, Firebrand and Phoenix are the two I'm looking forward to playing the most.
 
But over all I think Rocket Raccoon is going to be really fun, I'm glad they aren't afraid to hit the more obscure characters in the franchises.

and also, they need to add more "small" characters for balance 
you can't just have a few who are underneathe that mid level attack height and not others

I agree Cyclops atleast should have been in the game. He is too important an X-Men and Marvel character to be left out.  
if they were to put an X-vlillain, I'd say Apocalypse instead of Sentinel :P Hawkeye and Ghostrider look awesome! Glad Phoenix is in it! Ironfist should be interesting ;) 

#22 Posted by Thunderscream (1789 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not a fan of hers, but Emma Frost would be an interesting character to utilize in a game like this with her psychic attacks AND her diamond form
 
she could have a move called the "3 in 1" where she summons the Cuckoos to enhance her psy-strike

#23 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio
@Thunderscream
yeah, I feel the same way: nto my favorite mutant, but would have been (and LOOKED) amazing in the game 
and think of all the cool conversation she'd have with Jean, Morrigan, Storm, Magneto, Chun Li, all of them 
they had better roll out a few better new characters before they expect me to give them $40 more

So is MVC3 going the EA Sports route adding a few new players/characters, one shiny new toy and charging me full price?  They better add a bunch of new characters besides the ones announced!!!

#25 Posted by LB70145 (189 posts) - - Show Bio

To EVERYONE bitching about Cyclops not being in the game, they weren't allowed to use Cyclops (Marvel told them no). The same went for Iceman. I can understand Cable and Colossus not being in there either. Granted I would like Gambit and Psylocke in there but hey whatever. You have to remember this is MARVEL vs Capcom. X-men are a portion of the Marvel universe. Remember there is a Supernatural (Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange and Iron Fist) and Cosmic (Nova and Rocket Raccoon) aspect to Marvel as well. Hawkeye was kinda a given considering he is a important Avenger. 
 
Think about it, the game is also supposed to build hype for MARVEL characters. When players play obscure characters, Marvel's goal is to get those characters recognized. God forbid those players will go pick up books with those characters in them and then *GASP* actually read comics.
 
So please if you are going to complain, don't play/buy the game. MvC 2 is still out there, go play that to get your X-Men fix. Hell go play X-Men vs Street Fighter. Characters like Cyclops, Iceman and Cable are projectile whores anyway. Remember this game is trying to balance stuff. Putting in projectile spamming characters would do the exact opposite. 
 
If there is any complaining to happen it is about these guys not being there: Megaman X, Jin, Hayato, CAPTAIN FREAKING COMMANDO, and for Thor's sake put in some good Dark Stalkers characters.

@LB70145:  
Hey we have the right to "bitch".Capcom could have done better with the choices, X-men or not. 
 
But I must say, putting Phoenix Wright is pure genius ^_^

Quote for... biased opinion. Have you seen the game play for Firebrand? By far the most impressive character of the four they have game play videos for so far.

Also, Nova rules.

I still cannot understand fans that will boycott or complain about a game because the character they want in it doesn't appear. Do you just want them to remake X-Men vs Street Fighter over again every year with better graphics? There is always the chance you'll get the old characters later on in a DLC.

And mark my words, I bet Rocket Raccoon turns out to be a wreaking machine.

yeah, to say WTF about Nova without knowing much about him is sort of short sided 
it's a video game, there's no telling who will be good and who will suck, regardless of how they are in the comics
and also..........Nova is the man.

 No. Most casual players don't even know or care about Nova. Ironfist...meh, i would have taken Daredevil or Punisher over him anyday. 
And Rocket Racoon? Some of you guys are just sheep, follow the leader without any thought, just mindless follower. If they put Shitman in it, you love him to death too. It's ok to have a voice and opinions.

Ok we will see if he is a wrecking machine. 
And don't be in denial, Gambit topped the voting poll. He left all these Marvel choices in his wake.

@super_psycho I heard rumors of Firebrand before the first game was even released, so they may have already been developing him for the game.

@Edgeworth_11 I liked Gambit and Cyclops too, but do we really just want the same characters with one more super move?

I think the problem is when you look at it like a popularity contest. It's not. It's a game and we need the most freshness we can get from dynamic characters that are as different as possible.

Of course there are a lot of characters I would like to have instead of others, but I'm a fan of the series first. I don't care who is in it, so long as the game looks good and is fun to play.

@Shadowdoggy: Hawkeye is going to be in the Avengers Movie and he is on the main team of Avengers in both the comics and TV show. Not to mention he has been a favorite of many fans for a while. To me he is quite a given. He is a very timely character as of right now. That and like you said he is Awesome.
 
@Edgeworth_11: By the way, Rocket Raccoon fulfills two roles. One he is a short character, something the Marvel side normally doesn't get. Also, he is a cosmic character and an important one at that. Pick up some of the Guardians of the Galaxy Trades and you will see why he is in the game. We are not sheep I assure you, some of us just actually read the comics and appreciate the tip of the hat to awesome lesser known characters. Iron Fist is a major character right now. Also, look at the possible moves that he would have in comparison to other characters. As much as Daredevil is a great Marvel character, his move set would be very plain. The Punisher would just be a Chris Clone or worse a Cable clone. I am not saying you shouldn't bitch, I am just saying you should do some research before bitching about certain things. Like I said, it was Marvel that said no to Scott and Bobby being in the game. I would like Gambit too but look at the state of the game. They want the game to remain unique and have a very mixed bag of characters. If Capcom just listened to the fans all the time, the game would have Zangief again instead of Haggar and we would never see characters like Amaterasu in a game. Its the same reason we are getting Dormamu instead of Blackheart. Take my words for what you will. The decisions they make are theirs alone and the burden of making a good game falls to them. I would take a good game that doesn't have all the characters I want over a bad game with my favorite characters in it. It all comes down to personal taste. I don't like Deadpool or X-23 but I understand why they are in the game. I feel that Thor is very wonky but hey if they felt that is how he should play then fine. Again you may feel how you like but remember Capcom has the last word in the end.
