A place for everything that I want to talk about, which is a lot!

15. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (PS3)
If you think you know fighters, play this game. If you think
you’re hot stuff UMVC3 will kick your teeth in and show you your place.
Seriously, I’ve seen newbies get absolutely wrecked by someone who knows what
they’re doing. UMVC3 is not forgiving. It has user friendly controls, but it’s
going to take a while to get your metaphorical shit together. The gameplay to
UMVC3 is lightening quick, and if you blink at the wrong time, you’re quite
liable to get torched. You can use hyper combos that can go close to a hundred
hits, tag team to one of your three teammates, and use super special attacks to
do major damage. There’s a laundry list of moves, so much so that I couldn’t
even begin to scratch the surface… but suffice to say, if you screw up, it’s
due to your dumb fingers. The only thing I have a problem with is the character
roster. While they have most of who I want, there are some glaring omissions.
The lack of Mega Man and Venom is just ridiculous, and there’s no excuse for
it, especially since Ultimate is supposed to be the definitive edition of MVC3.
Ah well, almost nothing is perfect, but damn does this game reach pretty
freakin close to fighting nirvana.
