What if William Shakespeare was a fan of Mega Man and Phoenix Wright? He’d be pissed off around about now. You know what? I’m pissed off, too. I wrote a whole three thousand word rant about Capcom but I deleted it, because rants are boring and they really don’t help you get something off your chest in the long run. Instead, well, I took one of William Shakespeare‘s famous sonnets and added a Capcom twist. This way, my blog entry seems more involved, and it looks like I’m not actually dying on the inside like I currently am.
Capcom have done a lot of good and a lot of bad in the past, but cancelling Mega Man Legends 3, Mega Man Universe and failing to translate Gyakuten Kenji 2 are just my most recent disagreements, besides the most obvious one being that all they do is re-release old games for full-price with a small number of new or different characters, and we’re supposed to take it. You know what?
Wait, I promised I wouldn’t rant. Oh yeah, the sonnet! I almost completely forgot. Take it away, Bill!
Capcom, Shall I Compare Thee?
Thou art more deadly and more terminal.
The way you treat your fans is cruel,
And you hath shown no love at all.
And often is his unfair decisions seen;
And every fair project that he declines,
Results in my love for you thinning been;
You shall lose the fans that you had;
Cancelling good games like it is fashion
Not releasing Edgeworth makes us sad:
So long fails Capcom, another kick in the knee.
