Captivate 2012 Rome - Embargo Ends April 10th

Now I'm looking forward to hearing Gerstmann's thoughts of the event on today's Bombcast. He didn't even sound happy about the trip during the PAX East panel. Know we know why.
In Gerstmann's Impressions I trust. Can't wait for the Bombcast.

Well, you see, the problem is that Monster Hunter 3 actually turned a profit. Capcpom can't have any of that.

So instead, they looked to Lost Planet 2- which actually set Capcpom back. It sold worse than MH3 (which wasn't a stellar seller) even though it was on two consoles.

So Capcpom decided that the gaming public wanted more LP than MH- haven't you seen all the fans and threads begging for a new LP?

All praise the glorious Capcpom! Only they truly know what we want!
Nice
 
I'm positive Nintendo will announce MH3G at E3. Cool down people.
Actually at this stage I'm not too much confident they will eventually release it.

Yes, it's a possibility that Capcom could bring 3G to the rest of the world and at the same time release a budget edition in Japan to make the most out of it, but if at next E3 they're going to announce MH4 for Q4 2012, then that's the game they're going to bring in the West; in other words, they probably just wouldn't bother to bring 3G to sell 1million copies max when there's around the latest iteration of the series to take the general attention, that possibly will support online multiplayer and would have much more commercial potential in Western countries(as far as I'm concerned I'm content enough with single player, as long as I can get still the most powerful weapons and armoursets, but I gather 3G without online would sell worse than Tri down here).
 
We will have additional announcements of more products in the coming months and perhaps what you seek will be there.

what you seek will be there.
MHTriG Summer release, MHP3rd HD ver. Vita immediate PSN release, MH4 Q1 2013 western release.

MHTriG JPN DLC, MHP3rd HD ver. Vita JPN only, MH4 Q4 2013 JPN release, western date 'soon'.

Those poor journalists sitting on these embargoed megatons for the past week. It must have been torture trying to keep quiet about this Earth shattering information.

Especially the ones that have anything to do with Nintendo. RE6 not coming to Wii U "at this time." God, I don't know how I would be able to not leak that super juicy detail. At least Rich gave us a little tease!

A piece of advice for Capcom regarding next year's Captivate: Drop the embargo, especially if the lineup is mostly if not entirely already known.
Maybe the embargo is to give journalists a chance to calm the fuck down after realising they'd wasted two or three days of their lives travelling to and from Rome to watch a new trailer for DmC.

"I missed my daughter say her first word to experience the Lost Planet 3 announcement."
 
Not a single goddam journalist went to the future of FG panel? Seriously?
Might still be Embargoed. Sometimes embargoes are spread over days to give writers time to write things up and also keep announcements in the news. I'm not expecting much myself, but there will probably be at least some talk of where they are going.

I have a feeling that Capcom is probably going to leave it's fighting game announcements till San Diego Comic Con from now on though since it's post-Evo and less chance of the fighting game fanbase getting salty if the announcements of things like new games, DLC and balance patches are after (or just before) Evo and there isn't time for said announcements to affect the games at Evo.

Plus, announcing another Marvel expansion this soon after the SF X Tekken fiasco would have probably created a fanboy meltdown that would have made Chernobyl look like a baking soda volcano.
 
Does Capcom pay for everybody to go out there?

Why don't they save the money, haha. If it is just for ho-hum announcements, updates. IDK.

I'll keep the Cyberbots 2 flame burning until E3.

I'm probably gonna get some flack for this, but I'd be open to a cyberbots reboot that made it a mixture of armoured core and power stone/anarchy regins.
 
[Looks at the Capcom IR page; reads this]:

#27 Lost Planet 2
Release : 2010/5
Platform : PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Units : 1,600 thousand units
Me: "Are you joking me?"

The reason why I am anticipating 3 is because it goes back to it's roots. The reason why LP2 was such a bomba was because it was focused on a weak story with faceless, bland characters.

Also, I read Gerstmann's take on Captivate. He seems delighted on what he saw. The only thing I disagreed on was that he felt no attachment to the previous, original Dante, despite that he felt comfortable with NT developing DmC.
 
Just watch Invisible Walls (Gametrailers) and they said that Capcom pulled out one of their game announcements from Captivate and saving it for E3. The speculation it was a new Darkstalkers game.
 
I'm going to make a prediction of letdowns and failures to care.
Probably the same. Showcase three games with western influences and leave the rest on the shelf until the developers can find said influences to mix them up with.

Doomsday scenario: A westernized iteration of AA
