Electronic Arts: Origin, horrible customer support, /sp/ shovelware, intrusive DRM, and mutilating newly acquired IPs
Capcom: Won't localize awesome shit, rehashes the things they actually do localize to hell and back (for full price), on-disc DLC, DAN AND MEGAMAN NEVR 4GET
Ubisoft: Bawwww Pirates DRMDRMDRM, Bethesda quality releases, Downward slope in quality, makes more kiddyshit than Nintendo, Did I mention anal probing DRM?

I'd do a couple more but an aneurysm before 25 doesn't sound so great.

EA, Capcom and Ubisoft sounds about right.

EA: Origin pissed me off, but I still enjoyed BF3.
Capcom: Not localizing good games, UMvC3, charging for a reskin of a game, and On-Disc DLC. Megaman was never good.
Ubisoft: DRM, DRM, complaining not putting games on PC because of "piracy" (the games don't sell due to the invasive DRM), yearly Ass Creed rehashes, bitching about Rayman's sales when they released it at $60 on one of the biggest weeks of the year.

>Caring about Megaman

Take those nostalgia goggles off, that series saw more rehashes than any other series ever made, yes Megaman was rehashed worse than CoD. The series death can only bring about good things.

Sure Mega Man has had plenty of rehashes. It did side scrolling action well and stuck to it, There are both good and bad games in the various franchises and Capcom would typically run them into the ground before ending them.

However Mega Man Legends 1 tried something new, It was still in that awkward not so great 2D to 3D transition era, but the world and characters were worth it. Mega Man Legends 2 improved on Mega Man Legends in nearly every way, the controls were vastly improved, the levels were more complex and varied, the bosses were more challenging, the voice acting was better, and there were tons of places to go and things to do. Sure they weren't the greatest games, but I was excited to see it finally getting a sequel more than a decade later then having it killed off before it could go anywhere was more hurtful than all the ">implying megaman isn't shit" you could possibly come up with.

It's not just Megaman, their approval of the vandalism to DmC and the release of the ultimate edition of a game just months after the standard came out make Capcom an atrocious developer.
