I don't agree with most of it, especially Mickey Mouse. Just because Disney bought Marvel, doesn't mean Mickey can be a Marvel character. However, in X-Men: Children of the Atom, the SSF2T version of Gouki/Akuma appeared as an unlockable character, opening the doors for Capcom to create X-Men VS. Street Fighter and the rest of the MVC series. But that idea was inspired by SNK using Ryo Sakazaki in Fatal Fury Special as a secret final boss, which lead SNK in creating KOF94 and the rest of the KOF series.
I'd rather see as many protagonists (and I guess some main villains) as possible, like Cyber Blue (Battle Circuit), Lou & Siva (Three Wonders), Arthur (Knights of the Round), Ninja Hanamaru (Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru), either Clevic or Fighter (The King of Dragons), Chiki Chiki Boy 1P & 2P (Chiki Chiki Boys), and Lee Wong (Tiger Road).
Demitri from DarkStalkers also deserves to be in there. He's like Ray McDougal from the Fighter's History series and any Pokemon Trainer (like Red/Ash Ketchum/Satoru for example). They are all three protagonists that became less important than the secondary characters, Morrigan, Makoto Mizoguchi and Pikachu. These secondary characters are probably also the mascots of their franchises, due to appearing in more spin-offs than the protagonists.

^ I think that list was partially meant to be a joke.
I think I'm one of about three people that liked SonSon in MvC2. But then, I tend to gravitate towards cute, goofy characters. I'd like to see her appear in another Vs. fighting game, be it Marvel or Tatsunoko.
I want the Mexican cactus to return. He was bloody awesome.
Other than that, lessee. On the Marvel side, Thor and Punisher for sure. Captain Marvel for an outside chance, Mar-Vell preferred. Power Man and Iron Fist would be very cool as well. Danny Rand vs. Ryu= awesome.
On the Capcom side, Mayor Hagger, Rad Spencer, Amatersu, Viewtiful Joe, Arthur, and my longshot: Maximo. I dug the hell out of that series.
I think Sonson would be a better fit with Tatsunoko, if they decide to continue that series. The direction Capcom's taking MvC3 would be a little too dark for her, methinks, but she'd be perfect alongside Gatchaman and Yatterman.
I'd like to think Amingo will be locked in a closet and never set free upon the world again. He wasn't received very well.
Maximo's possible - I've heard Capcom's focusing on more recent heroes, and Maximo is only one generation back.
I don't really need to make a "hopefuls" list for Marvel. The modern super hero and I are at odds; Deadpool is really the only one I follow out of both mainstream companies, and he's already in. So, yay.
I should put together a list of the Capcom characters I want in this, though...Ammy and Franza, yes, but I want Viewtiful Joe, Frank West and Zero to make their comebacks, too.
Disney vs. Capcom would be awesome. I mean, since Disney bought Marvel and Capcom is still making Marvel vs. Capcom games, why not a Disney vs. Capcom game? Capcom used to make some awesome Disney games for the NES and SNES and I think it would be like coming to a full circle of sorts. Well, that or a Disney fighting game with nothing but Disney characters.
TEi - Frank is all but confirmed at this point. Beyond that, though, I'd like to see the two Vs. series keep their characters as separate as possible, personally. Ryu, Chun, Morrigan and Frank are close to 1/4 of TvC's Capcom roster, and I don't want to see any more than that cross over into Marvel's side. It'll make the TvC roster less exciting if too many of them pop up in both.
8bit - That's true. I like to think Arthur is going to get his chance here - he was practically in Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, complete with stage, until they cut him out.
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
