Capcom suing Koei Tecmo

This is the first time I have taken to Tumblr regarding anything of this nature. I just feel I really need to vent my frustration over the idiocy of some companies.

So, here’s the information. Capcom is suing Koei Tecmo (my favourite gaming companies of all time) for using “disc based expansions” and a rumble feature that tells players when enemies are nearby…

Here’s the thing… Biased opinions aside, Capcom doesn’t seem to have any merit to this claim.

Let’s talk about the whole expansion thing first, because Capcom is obviously forgetting that PC games have been using disc based expansions since the 80s. Not to mention the Sonic & Knuckles expansion for the Sega Genesis. Oh, and did I forget to mention that they are suing based on a game from 2002? I have done a little bit of research and came up with nothing. I can’t find anywhere that Capcom has even used disc based expansions. And why wait this long? Just because at the time you were a much larger company than them? And now you’re broke…

Now let’s talk about the whole vibration thing… This has been going on since the N64 with the rumble pack. Do you really think you can say you own the right to let the players know when enemies are close? I’m fairly certain we can build a list of games from the N64 era that do that.

It’s not really because Capcom is suing my favourite gaming company, Koei. That’s just how I got caught into the story. It’s the they are wanting around $10 million for the “damages” they have caused AS WELL as 5-10% of all sales within these franchises AND for certain future titles to be withheld.

First you say the fans don’t want a Mega Man game. Now you’re saying the fans aren’t allowed to have Dynasty Warriors games… Capcom, who the fuck do you think you are?

Just finished reading this. I really think Static needs to make a a huge come back.
