So as you know, I just bought a copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 because someone was selling their steelbook edition. This clearly was an impulse buy because I had no idea that a steelbook for MvC3 even existed.
When I bought my Ziggy (my PS3), the first game I got was Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and even though I haven't played the game in over a year, it's still one of my favorite games of this generation. Vanilla marvel is so different compared to ultimate. Anyone who's played it before ultimate came out would know what I'm talking about. Characters feel different from each other, certain combos don't work, certain combos that don't work in ultimate DO work in vanilla, we still tend to mash buttons when doing supers even though you don't need to and the lack of air X-Factor can be such a big factor in a clutch situation.
Anyway, scrubbyness and differences aside, I ended up liking vanilla mvc3 way more than I thought I would after recording this.
