The Joystiq Show - 005: Hyper Mega Capcom Edition

There are very few publishers that can stand toe-to-toe with Capcom's legacy. How different would the gaming landscape be without the likes of Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Mega Man and so many more? But things have changed at Capcom, and not necessarily for the better.

Richard talks with former Capcom Producer Ben Judd and 8-4's Mark MacDonald about the state of Capcom in the context of modern Japanese game development. The guys over The Mega Man Network also share some of their thoughts on the recent cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3. Then it is on to the roundtable where the guys close the show with some of their own Capcom insights.

Part 1 (3:10) - Interview: Capcom and the Japanese games industry

Part 2 (29:52) - Roundtable: The life and recent times of Capcom
