Games of Winter-een-mas Awards - Fighting
The Digital Fix’s Fighting Game of Winter-een-mas 2012 is...
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3!
Released just recently in November 2011 and packed to the rafters with all kinds of extra characters - along with the same crazy, fun and deep fighting mechanics seen in earlier releases, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was an easy choice as The Digital Fix's fighting game this year. It's got many layers to it meaning you can of course go super-expert and learn the mechanics and combos and various inputs to become the best but you can also pick it up, play it and have a massive amount of fun either in single player or local and online multiplayer. It's just raw entertainment - especially given some of the characters.
We let Capcom know that we were awarding Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 The Digital Fix's Fighting game of Winter-een-mas award 2012 and this is what the UK PR Manager, Adam Merrett, had to say in response:
“We’re elated at Capcom to find out that Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 has been crowned fighting game of the year, it’s great to see how much love there is for the franchise. I’d like to see it as a reflection that characters with interesting fighting mechanics, such as Phoenix Wright are a welcomed addition to the huge roster!”
Exactly. How can a fighting game which has Phoenix Wright in it amongst many others be anything less than enormous fun?
To celebrate Winter-een-mas 2012 we at The Digital Fix are supporting a fantastically deserving charity - Child's Play.
