This week, Capcom shitcanned Mega Man Legends 3. The game was supposed to be produced by Mega Man producer Keiji Inafune, but he's not at Capcom anymore. Hrm, that might have something to do with it?

On his blog, Inafune wrote, "Today's cancellation decision is out of my control, but there's something I'd like to tell the staff: 'I'm sorry.'"

Inafune also apologized to fans for not seeing the game through to completion. He did thank the staff for all their hard work on the project.

A long time Capcom employee, Inafune worked on some of the company's biggest titles like Mega Man and also developed new ones like Dead Rising and Lost Planet. Before he left Capcom, Inafune said he hated his job.

Since then, Inafune created two new game companies and is hard at work on new titles.

Personally I never had high hopes for the game. I think it should've been released for more than just the 3DS. When Inafune left the helm, then I knew it wasn't a good sign. Plus in general, I'm often suspicious of sequels for games from several years ago and what changes they might make for the worse.

Still, the internet is BLOWING UP right now because of this news. I consider myself a moderately big Mega Man fan (played all the original MM games and all the X games up to 7, and one of the MMBN games) but I am really completely unaffected by this news. I am so indifferent about it but a lot of the internet however... is not.

For example, during the stream for Capcom's event at Comic Con last night, the chat was literally bursting with angry fans calling for MML3 and saying "FU*K YOU CAPCOM!" That was not an isolated thing. Oh, no, no no. Try every two seconds. It never stopped.

Now, I'm hearing that the MML3 fans are so salty in fact, that they are trying to get Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 cancelled. *sigh*

I swear, gamers sometimes are the most spoiled people in the world. It seems like sometimes they can't put life into perspective. God forbid, but if a tragedy happens tomorrow, will you care that MML3 was cancelled? No.
