Neo Empire: Marvel vs Capcom 3 Community Q&A with Seth Killian

Neo Empire put together a Q&A with Capcom's Seth Killian with questions sent in by their readers over on their site. The Q&A covers a fairly wide range of topics from DLC characters to netcode. Here's what Seth Killian had to say about Marvel vs Capcom 3's netcode:

Taj: I was wondering if you could comment on how the game’s net code is? Is it an improvement over Super Street Fighter IV?

Seth Killian: The MVC3 netcode was done by the same engineers that did Super SFIV. Of course I haven’t been able to play it “in the wild” yet while everyone else is online too, but the tests have all been solid, and there are some nice added touches like better algorithms to determine other players’ true connection quality and avoid slow connections, and of course “rage-quitter hell.”

TheSixthAxis Article: "Why You Should Be Worried About Mortal Kombat"

There is a very interesting article today on TheSixthAxis titled "Why You Should Be Worried About Mortal Kombat".  The article draws a comparison between the game's developer, NetherRealm Studios, and the competition with regards to fan feedback during the development process.  Here's a sample.

"Mortal Kombat is easily the most important game for the franchise in recent memory, and yet there doesn’t seem to be much desire for direct fan feedback. I saw a live demo at E3 and I was easily impressed. However, I only saw what the developers wanted me to see. It was flashy eye candy with the devs using simplified controls to show all the crazy combos."

This is interesting. Do you agree with the article's premise?
