The Game Room: Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the long awaited sequel to Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (Duh), which is one of the most revered and respected fighting games in the gaming community. MvC3 fixes a lot of the issues that made it's predecessor a bit difficult to adapt to for more casual fighting gamers. The move sets for all the characters are pretty much similar to one another, abandoning complex joystick maneuvers and button combos for more accessible half-circle button attacks as well as hyper moves. This allows even the most casual fighters to keep up with veterans in more ways then before. If it's still too hard for you, though, there is also the option to use Simple Mode, which concentrates all the possible moves you can preform into the four main face buttons. Besides your basic moves, there are also more advanced moves you can do to either help your offense or defense, such as advanced blocking that pushes your oppoent away and aerial tream combos that do massive damage. Lastly, there's X-Factor, a last-ditch technique that not only boosts your attack damage but also allows you to regenerate any part of your health bar that's in the red far quicker then normal.
