MegaPhilX’s Captivate Chronicle April 20, 2010

Posted by MegaPhilX in : Uncategorized , trackback

A lot of you have been asking me what is going on with CAPCOM about the “MegaMan 10 Website Incident”.

Well, here’s what is going on:

Thanks to CAPCOM, I’ve been heading to Hawaii to attend Captivate from April 13 to 16 2010. The super mega ultra awesome event where CAPCOM shows off all of their upcoming games for 2010.
Many of the producers such as Keiji Inafune were there too. It’s been incredible! ^_^ Thanks a lot, CAPCOM-Unity! ( :
Other super fans such as Toshin, TwiGGy and Curleh are also invited there.  I wish N64Mario, Kevvviiinnn, Starsimsuniverse and Yan could also come though  : P
But hey, there are so few fans that are invited there, I’m just super glad Seth invited me…

I’ve been writing notes on my cellphone as things were happening. Since I don’t have internet on my phone, I couldn’t tweet anything so I took notes for your entertainment:

Here we go:

Day 1:

Day 2:

Well, this is it guys, it was a great Captivate. I’m really grateful to CAPCOM and especially Seth who invited me and somehow got me there. I’ll never forget those few days. I hope I’ll be able to see you guys again personally soon.
CAPCOM Unity rules!!!

Oh, also, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is also coming!  ( :

Now for a little update on MegaMan Unlimited if you care:

Congratulations on your experiences at the convention! I’ve been following the Megaman Unlimited project for almost a year now, and I’m very much looking forward to the day that you guys are ready to release it.

The timing of this event was interesting, as it was just a few days prior to the convention when I have reconnected with someone in my extended family that I cared about whom I grew up with (and we have both grown up together playing Mega Man games). And today, when you posted your experiences on your blog, was the day that she and I first met nineteen years ago.

My god Phil…
This is truly breathtaking!

I’m proud of you!

I guess you can die now, right?… no! you have to finish your game first!

Can’t wait to see you man!

So cool, and I didn’t know you came to Hawaii till I read this. I live in Hawaii, not in Honolulu. It would be cool if I meet those guys, I have ideas that I want to share with them. I hope that you had fun and can’t wait for your game to come out.

4. Tayo - April 21, 2010

Man, you’re so lucky. :\ I would kill to meet Keiji Inafune himself. Plus, I do speak some Japanese. ;) I could have asked him anything, ANYTHING, and I would know for sure he’d get it. So, what did you do about Capcom using your stuff?

5. RockmanRotties - April 25, 2010

That’s nice but want to meet the celebrities like Keiji ? Its ridiculous because they are important and you are not ? They deserve to be respect and you dont deserve to be respect ? Thats the point. You people are weird and worship the idols of those people. They are just REGULAR PEOPLE! You should worship only God himself — Jehovah —
Jesus declared: “It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.” (Matthew 4:10) Thus, God’s servants worship no one other than Jehovah. Have a good day. :)

6. MegaMac - April 26, 2010

Hey, RockmanRotties. Not one person on this planet should submit their soul to a questionable, enigmatic being. That is a sign of weakness and frailty. Take your trash elsewhere, please. This is a MegaMan Fan’s blog, not a place to defy other’s Freedom of Religion.

Took the bait? I think it’s pretty cool of Capcom to offer that “bait.”

I think the most likely explanation for the graphic stealing is like somebody said before: some web designer at Capcom USA probably just googled MM10 and used what he saw. A lawsuit on MegaPhilX’s part is pretty damn unlikely to achieve much for him other than annoying Capcom and maybe getting them to take down the graphics on the page (I say maybe because copyright laws on the net are very loose when it comes to things like hosting images,) it’s not like they’re making any money off of some background images on their promotional site. And of course, out of corporate spite, or a misguided attempt to prevent further occurrances, Capcom could have then easily turned around and served Phil with a cease and desist for unauthorized used of the Mega Man Character.

So yeah, Capcom wasn’t really in a position where their hand were forced or tied; they could have not invited Phil to their show (or done anything else) at no realistic loss to themselves. It’s doing things like this that earn my respect for Capcom, as they prove they do care about the fans.

8. Hidden Maverick - May 10, 2010

Agreed – Capcom was a class act with the whole situation and the invitation of Phil over to the Captivate event.
