Those who love a franchise can simultaneously be its biggest critics. It’s not always out of malice, though — but out of passion for the game. In what certainly turned out to be a momentous video, Maximilian — who professes his love for Capcom’s Versus games — is laying it all out in his latest: “What Happened? MVCI: A Case Study Of What Not To Do”, regarding Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

With a heavy heart, Maximilian opens by saying that the launches of Street Fighter V and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite made him lose a lot of faith in Capcom. He launches into describing MvC:I’s timeline, which started with a demo at PlayStation Experience in 2016, as well as a gameplay trailer that looked a little concerning. “I think they’re going to fix it later,” Maximilian retells what many fighting game players thought upon seeing it. Graphics, sadly, dragged down the game a lot, spawning discussions about Chun-Li’s face, among others. In his opinion, the marketing overall focused on the Story Mode — which just wasn’t the strongest point of the game — and the slim initial offering of characters wasn’t a strong incentive for the series’ veterans.

Maxmilian then ventures into the nitty-gritty: talking about some mechanics and features in the game that didn’t mesh well. “I think it’s done. I don’t think Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is going to get any future updates.” What’s your opinion? Is the game finished, or is there still a chance for redemption?

Unfortunately, Maximilian has even received death threats because the opinions expressed in this video. We want to remind everyone that death threats are a serious matter, and they should never be sent to a creator, no matter how controversial their opinions are! Please be civil and respectful to one another.
