TOP 5: Capcom Characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

To compliment my list of Marvel characters who should be included in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, here I’ll be running down who I think should be joining the ranks from Capcom’s side. Now, Capcom doesn’t have nearly as many characters to choose from, but two of the characters I previously had on this list (Bionic Commando‘s Nathan Spencer and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts‘ Arthur) were recently announced, showing that Capcom may be included characters from lesser-known or older franchises. Hopefully they continue that trend and don’t just fill up the roster with characters from Street Fighter.

TOP 5: Marvel Characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Two weeks ago, at New York Comic Con, Capcom announced four new characters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, bringing the total now up to 26. With a reported roster being “over 30 characters” deep, we’re coming down to the final few character announcements on each side. So, this week for TOP 5, I wanted to go over my suggestions for who to include int he game. But, since I felt it would be unfair to include both Marvel and Capcom in the same list (since one would have more slots than the other, and it was too damn hard to narrow it down as is) we’re going to have two TOP 5s this week.

Why Nikita is This Season’s Best New Show

If you read my initial review of Nikita from a few weeks ago, you’ll remember how much I enjoyed the first few episodes. I’m happy to report that the subsequent episodes have not let me down. Each episode is giving us more information about each of the characters, gradually building the story, all while giving us new and interesting events each week. Last night’s episode, while a little light on the action, had me wondering where everything was going to end up in the end, at least in regards to Alex’s story. We didn’t get to see much progress in terms of Nikita and Owen this week, but I for one hope he becomes a series regular on the show.

Warning: minor spoilers ahead, for those who haven’t seen the most recent episode.
