    I miss the days of Marvel vs Capcom, where Capcom looked to their past games and Marvel comics (not movies) for ideas. The obvious MCU related characters really don't appeal to me much. I wish they would bring back the rainbow of colors and ideas that graced the CPS2 era.

    Wait, Star Mazer got released? And it has a sequel of sorts?! When the hell did this happen (and why am I not seeing coverage of it)?

    In all seriousness though, it sounds like Mauer needs to work on her contract negotiating skills before doing any work. There is no excuse for not learning how to conduct yourself as a freelancer and protect yourself in business dealings. I work with music contractors all the time and always have a contract in place. I hope she realizes that conducting yourself this way is only going to poison your potential employer pool.

    I think it is fairer to compare it to Ghouls n' Ghosts. Each game is definitely an evolution of the previous title. If you didn't grow up with the series is is a little hard to see how each game improved, unless you play them back to back. I am glad this made it onto the list, but really hoped to see Demon's Crest as well.

    @kidgorilla I love the look of Arc Sys Works stuff, but I have never gelled with their manic play style. So if they do the technical side of development with someone from the outside doing the system and control design, I would be fine with that. But depending on the series, the pace and control could vary wildly. Imagine trying to play a Samurai Showdown game at the pace of a Guilty Gear game? No thanks.

    As long as it's 2d (not cell shaded 3d), I'm excited.

    I feel like Kings Knight is an amazing concept waiting for someone to fix its flaws and repackage it in a modern incarnation. Watching perfect playthroughs of it just reminds me of the good things that exist in there. And I must agree it has some great box art.

    I also loved the Data East box/arcade art. A lot of it was done by Frank Cirocco.

    I'm trying to recall, but aren't lives just associated with "retry" a section in Mario games now? Losing all your lives means you start at the beginning of a level (the first checkpoint) while lives allowed you to retry at the last checkpoint. This isn't some grand new concept. It is just repackaging the same thing.

    I guess if the new direction is just to always retry from the last checkpoint, then they are streamlining the need to improve in a macro sense. You only need to focus on the current challenge to be able to reach the end of the game.

    So, it falls into the same slot as Alien Hominid? I can't speak to Cuphead, but Alien Hominid had amazing art and animation that didn't respect the tight animation control and hitbox forgiveness of games it tried to emulate (ie Contra).

    Seeing how GungHo was raking in nearly 100 million a day at the peak of P&D success, I think these guys have all the freedom they need to experiment and do things "their way." Good for them. I played for nearly 3 years and never spent a dime. But damn was the game compelling (for what reason, I have no idea). :)
