DO NOT BUY ANY MORE CAPCOM GAMES.
Or at the very least, only buy them used, where Capcom won’t directly get a cent from them. I cannot stress enough how important it is that their profits go down.
I had already been boycotting almost all of their games after the MML3 cancellation and TekkenXStreet Fighter on-disc DLC debacles (with the sole exception of Asura’s Wrath, which I actually now regret not buying used), but knowing that they treat their staff just as terribly as their customers, this shit cannot be put up with by anyone anymore.
And for those of you who understandably have trouble believing an anonymous poster on 4chan, here’s an article detailing the overworking Capcom has given to producer Yoshinori Ono, one of the biggest names in the fighting game community. He was worked to the point of heart failure, and after recovering, was immediately set back to a tight schedule.
Capcom’s already driven away most of their big name talent, such as Resident Evil Creator Shinji Mikami, Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya, and most recently, as of last year, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, with terrible management issues and poor employee treatment. Frankly, it’s about time it started really biting them in the ass.
This is horrible
