>the only thing worth talking about at this point.

Right, because whenever anyone talked about MM, they don't focus on things like gameplay.

Let this be the end of this discussion. Retards are just coming in here, attempting to bait, and reignite a stupid discussion. No more responding.

>> No. 183796
last I heard E, F and one I can't remember, Es my favorite.
>> No. 183797
Yea E looks good glad its not B or C since they look a bit too busy.
>> No. 183800
E is basically Panty in a stewardess outfit, out of the ones they picked it's definitely my favorite.
>> No. 183801
I can't say E especially appealed to me, but it does seem to have struck a nerve with fans. I'm reasonably sure F will walk it, since it was one of the earlier designs and already acquired a popularity base before any of the others. Of the three remaining, F would probably get my vote (H was the other winner, according to a quick google).

I actually rather liked A, weirdly enough. Shame it didn't make the final 3. Also, this (>>183792) is adorable :3
>> No. 183802
Yea I like A a bit more now since it reminds me a lot of Connie from Steven Universe.

Dina disaster.

Should be fired for being completely incompetent at her job.

She still hasn't responded to any concerns.

I actually liked C, personally, but I'm good with any of them, so long as it's not B.

I don't have much to say about this until the game is done, but I want to weigh in on the issue of this:


She's working on Community stuff, and not the game itself, chill out. Her asking about making playable female characters/making the lead a female, literally has nothing to do with her not being a Megaman fan (apparently). Like, it seems super weird, to me, that she's involved at all, but then again, I'm guessing she was hired due to her experience as a community manager, or for whatever reason, the people in charge of hiring her thought she was best for the job. Since she has no actual say in the game itself (As evidenced by how she worded her plea to make Call playable/Beck a female, way back before the game was actually funded), and Inafune and his team are the ones actually designing and making the game; I find it hard to understand why anyone gives a damn.

It seems to me like it's internet drama for the sake of internet drama. Personally, I'm just glad that we're getting another Megaman game (spiritually, at least) from Inafune & co. since Capcom seems to be completely uninterested in continuing the franchise in a meaningful way.

Also, having a girl lead for a Megaman style game? I'm gonna go ahead and say it would literally have no impact on the gameplay. In fact, thanks to >>183783 's gif, I remembered that it already happened and, indeed, it really didn't matter whether you played a guy or gal in the ZX series as it played the same either way.

That's all I have to say on that subject.

You know thinking about this I'm a little shocked by this undercurrent of people who see this game as simply Megaman, like not just a spiritual successor but straight up just Megaman.
>> No. 183829
Pretty much sums the whole thing up.
>> No. 183830
Yeah, and it's a serious problem, too. This is a new IP, and we're stuck with Megaman fans (who are horrible, like most fans of any property, but seem to be taking it to a new level lately) trying to fight anything about the game that distinguishes it from its predecessor.

Megaman fans are a much bigger threat to Mighty No. 9 than any OTHER non-issue that those fans might want to whine about.
>> No. 183831

There. Maybe now we can all shut the fuck up about incendiary issues which will have no impact on M#9 and go back to talking about the actual goddamn game.
>> No. 183835
I chortled, as that is how I'm seeing the situation.

Which is part of the problem, but that's also how hype was built up for the Kickstarter. The whole project was pitched as "Megaman without Megaman", even giving the main character a very similar look. "Capcom hates Megaman, Inafune is going give us not-Megaman!" (Put another way: "Megaman is dead, long live Megaman!") By tying everything in so tightly, especially when the Megaman community had been horribly burned recently (MML3 etc.), they gave a beacon of hope that almost all fans latched onto like a single twig sticking out of the cliffside to keep from falling.

We'd see a similar backlash if it was, say, the Double Fine Kickstarter and they hired a community manager who said they never played Psychonauts and was bored by the project video, but the voracity of the backlash would be magnitudes smaller.
>> No. 183837
These people might be over reacting asshats, but the fact that she herself is a woman has little to do with their arguments. Stupid though they may be.
>> No. 183838
We wish.

On a different note, what is it about companies all trying to roll their own forum? It's useful if the forum is going to interact with other products in a major way (i.e. Steam threads/groups), but if it's purely for discussion it makes far more sense to buy a vBulletin license or something, use the mods you like, and call it a day. (Looks like a current license is $399 for the full suite, then $200/yr for "premium" support, which is a far sight cheaper than hiring even one developer to re-invent the wheel.)

Yes, you open yourself up to mass attacks when security holes are found in off-the-shelf software, but you also have far more holes when making your own versus software that has been around for a decade or more.

Is it the threading? Because from those images, that's a horrible threading style, and I'm sure there's a mod for vBulletin (if not a baked-in feature) that will do that.
>> No. 183839

She still hasn't responded to the community herself. Being a CM it means she is shit at her job and should be fired.
>> No. 183840

The forum is there because every backer over 5 dollars gets a say in the development through polling and discussion.
>> No. 183841
Except she has tried to on several occasions. All of which have been met with people just looking for excuses to hate her or denounce any of her answers with aimless conjecture.

She doesn't need to be fired just because a few people on the forums are acting like little brats.

Look, I'll lay it out in simple terms so we get at the real truth of the matter:

1. Some dude called Heavy wanted a job
2. Other people applied to that job
3. A lady got it
4. He got his friends to start harassing her on the assumption that it must be someone else's fault that he didn't get the job.
5. They stalked and harassed her until they found some stuff that let them get the ASJW's on the case, then got THEM to start stalking and harassing her.
6. Now they intend to continue doing this until she quits because Heavy thinks he'll get the job if she's gone, because he lacks the self-awareness to realize that he has completely invalidated the idea of himself as a person anyone would ever want to work with.

He has used politics to make teenaged Tumblr users who once had a fight with other teenaged Tumblr users into his personal army, and somehow these people have pride in the fact that they're being used by this guy.

To the "[plus4chan] doesn't want actual discussion" people:

There is no discussion to be had because this is about politics. Either side will always accuse the other of being ideologically charged (and thus inherently wrong).

Considering the crapstorm she got handed I'd say Dina's handling it pretty well. I haven't read a single thing she's said (after she got the job) that would justify the heavy Glenn Becking that's going on, and she doesn't even come across as stressed by it. Quite the trial by fire, but she might actually turn out to be right for the job after all.

According to a post in the GAF thread linked earlier (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=93541267&postcount=7903), the final vote on Call's design between the three finalists (E, F and H), will run from 19 December to 29 December.

He told a person to knock it off, because that was the only person who kept bringing it up when others were trying to ignore the situation. If people (more than 1) actually want to talk about it, and can do so maturely, then there's nothing wrong with that. Trying to shut down the entire topic would just cause further problems.

See the last half of the previous MN9 thread (>>179891) for a poor recap on the whole thing. Actually, those that really do want to talk about it might use that thread (which is auto-saging) to do so freely so this thread can be used to talk about the game itself. It seems some people are already doing this.
>> No. 183898
Well, two posts were linked to when he said to knock it off, so that's what I meant and thought, even though one person was doing 95% of it.

For me it was less about trying to stop the topic and more about trying to stop a silly argument that's going to a) go nowhere, and b) just flood the thread.

Whatever. That's all I have to say on the matter.

>> No. 183981
Dude, that's the worst part. That's not even fucking what she said. She said it'd be cool if Call could be playable or Beck was a girl. Someone went "Hey, I like male Beck" and she said she just meant it's be a cool optional feature, not that she wanted male Beck gone.

From day one this has been people raging at a steaming hot soup of Fucking Nothing.
>> No. 183982
Are there any numbers for how many idiots have asked for refunds over this? They're trying to claim it's 100K, but somehow even now I think higher of them to believe that.
>> No. 183983
There are no numbers, but someone posted a poll on the forums... and on /v/. Got something like 2000 signatures, and there's just no damn way they were all backers. 2,000 people angry, 67,226 backers. About 3%. And there's just no way they all pulled their money out. Just no fucking way.
There's probably a dent in the funding, but it was inevitable that SOMETHING would set off the sort of people that'd pull out over this drama creampuff.
