Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X Tekken

March 12, 2012 -

 The Angry Joe show is pretty angry and anyone with basic English skills should note the tone of his show with the use of an adverb as his first name. Still Joe has a lot to be angry about with Street Fighter X Tekken, because, as he notes in his latest video, it's not like Capcom hasn’t faced the outrage of fans over the practice he is ranting and raving about ("DLC" on the disc) in the past...

While some might want to tell Joe to calm down, we think his tone is just about right on a great many things related to Street Fighter X Tekken - including the fact that same console team ups vs. online teams is not allowed on the Xbox 360. Capcom says that this is due to architecture issues, but Joe counters by noting that it's possible on Mortal Kombat. Oops, somebody at Capcom might need to roll that excuse back in favor of something more plausible.

Anyway check out Joe's rant. People that hate DLC on the disc will find themselves agreeing with everything - including Joe's tone. Thanks to MaskedPixelante for the tip.

"Capcom says that this is due to architecture issues, but Joe counters by noting that it's possible on Mortal Kombat."

And Capcom lets out a collective D'OH!

Dirty paper makes the world go round. As long as people are willing to pay for it, they will do it. Yell all you want. Unless your yelling stops people from clicking "Buy" nobody hears you.

I will say this. If they pull crap like that with Tekken Tag 2, I'm swearing off console games forever and returning to my PC gamer roots.

You consolefag plebs can keep your damn industry that screws you in the arse at every turn. At least Gaben still loves his customers.

There are PC games with DLC now, and it was PC hackers who found DLC IN the game files of Saints Row 3

 

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

...and Mass Effect 3. Totally went there.
For the record, I'm not buying Street Fighter x Tekken on PC. I'm tired of being treated like a second-class citizen and being forced to wait 2-3 months to purchase titles from Capcom. By that time, they'll likely have released Street Fighter x Tekken: Arcade Edition or something like they always do to capitalize on sales. I won't be a party to that business model.

Same thing happened with Soul Calibre 5. There is a character that was a preorder at a certain retailer, but the guy is on the disk. You can't access him in any way on purpose, but in one of the modes, he can show up at random and fight you. Really frustrating.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

It's not really that big a deal. The character in question is dodgy at best, with random effects to his attacks. He's more of a gimmick character, if anything. Like Dan.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

I really don't think it matters if the character is any good. What matters is that buyers of the game are locked out from content they already own (because it is on the disk).

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

Indeed. It's the practicality of the matter.

So not only is he on the disc, but you can't access him, at all, if you buy the game now.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

That's correct. The content is on the disc and even in the menu on the PlayStation 3 copies - which is kind of a taunt in my opinion. It's almost as if they're saying "Yeah, we did this; and it's here. But guess what? You can't play it till we allow you too - and you have to pay for the priviledge on top of the $60 you already put down for the game".

I haven't really been following it, but he may come up for DLC purchase later if he hasn't already. Still really annoying.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

Well, the Professor Genki pack for Saints Row 3 recently went to the DLC market, so it's possible.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

So, one of the reasons given is so that people don't have to wait half a minute for it to download?

And what good does that do someone who either chooses not to or doesn't have a choice about having an internet connection.

 

And despite Ubisoft's slaims those people do exist.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

If you don't have an internet connection, you're not going to be getting DLC, regardless of whether it's on the disk or not.

Re: Angry Joe Gets Angry With Capcom over Street Fighter X ...

Exactly my point.
