(And yes, they are dancing to an ending theme song of Heart Catch Pretty Cure, "HeartCatch
☆Paradise!" which I just had to mention so I could ascii that star in the title.) Heatman over on The Megaman Network
has been recently mesmerized by the Dancing Barrett
, linked to him by SealthWoman. So in a bid of cross promotion, and a break from the Dash 3 analysis, I figure I share a bit about the program of which that make it possible, Miku Miku Dance as well as the Rockman applications that have been done with it.
Fan Art Reaction sure came quickly~
From the topic title, you might assume I'm talking about the very infamous lie of "We will release the project's prototype to determine marketability, but then don't and cancel the project" that Capcom made back in April. While indeed that lie was quite horrible, you would be mistaken. The topic for today is a lie that extends and encompasses that lie and many others, and explains the hate and anger Capcom is currently receiving. This lie is the much praised and commended "Open Development" of the Dash 3 Project.
As far as I can tell, Capcom's management had decided Dash 3's fate based on their estimates of how well the game would of sold if it were released. And that this estimate was based off the dev-room membership and the Nintendo 3DS sales figures. On a superficial level, it seems like very solid numbers to hang the decision on. But seriously, how the heck is that a sure-fire barometer for sales?
