Everyone knew this was coming, but it’s still pretty damn exciting — Marvel.com announced yesterday that Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is coming to Xbox Live and PSN this summer, complete with online gameplay. Now, he game won’t be HD like the recent Street Fighter II re-release, but it will have some graphic modes to help it look a little better, detailed over at Kotaku.
MvC2 is one of those games I love despite the fact that I’m absolutely terrible at it; I even love the ridiculous theme songs whose lyrics consist of nothing but the phrase “I want to take you for a ride” repeatedly infinitely. I’m sure you can see how well that suits both the capcom and Marvel universe. So what I wanna know is who your favorite team is? And how many of you picked Cable and his ridiculous guns, and are thus bastards?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
