Could Grand Theft Auto Vice City have worked on GameCube in the early 00’s?

When it comes down to action adventure third person shooter games Grand Theft Auto Vice City was arguably one of the most popular titles within that genre for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.  For the PlayStation 2 Grand Theft Auto Vice City had reportedly sold over 16 million units worldwide for that console alone.  However, the fact that Grand Theft Auto Vice City was very popular for the PS2 is understandable considering the fact that it was arguably the best game console of the 00’s decade.  If the game was released on the Nintendo GameCube back in the early 00’s it could have easily been one of the best selling games for that console.

When it comes down to quality and graphics the Nintendo GameCube was pretty solid but some might argue that it was not on the same level as the PS2 or Xbox.   Also, there were in the past that Grand Theft Auto was supposed to be released for the Nintendo GameCube but ended up being cancelled for whatever reason.  If Grand Theft Auto was released on the Nintendo GameCube back in 2002 it still could have done great in sales considering the fact that it would have been the first game in the series to be featured on that console.

Should Tekken Tag Tournament 2 be re-released for current generation consoles?

Tekken-Tag-Tournament-2.jpg

If there is any fighting  game from the early 10”s that deserved to be re-released or remastered anyway it’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2.  When Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was first released back in 2012 it was considered to be the best fighting game of the year in the eyes of many people.  Also, the sales for the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 were pretty decent for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 following its release.

Tekken-tag-tournament-2-wiiSeeing Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the PS4, Xbox One or even the Nintendo Switch would be pretty cool in theory.  However, there is always a possibility that a remastered version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 would be overshadowed by games such as Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite or even Tekken 7.

Should Patroklos and Pyrrha be included in Soul Calibur 6?

Soul Calibur V (4)

When it comes down to Soul Calibur V the game had mainly revolved around the main characters Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander.  While Soul Calibur VI is expected to revisit the events revolving around the original Soul Calibur game some might question whether or not Patroklos and Pyrrha should appear in the game altogether.  If Project Soul wants briefly to explain the events of Soul Calibur V for those who never played the game then having Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander would make sense to some degree.  However, if Soul Calibur VI focuses only on the events from the very first Soul Calibur game then there may not be much of a reason to have Patroklos or Pyrrha as playable characters.

Soulcalibur-VI (2)

After what happened in Soul Calibur V some could argue that it might have been the first and possibly the last game that Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander may appear in as playable characters considering the fact they supposedly destroyed both the Soul Edge and the Soul Calibur swords. However, if both characters were mentioned or even made some type of appearance in Soul Calibur VI for storyline purposes then it would definitely make the game itself more interesting overall.

Could Soul Calibur V have worked on the Nintendo Wii?

Soul Calibur 5‘When we look back at fighting titles from the early 10’s there were some pretty cool titles for consoles such as PS3 and the Xbox 360 such as Soul Calibur V  If Project Soul had made the decision to port Soul Calibur V to the Nintendo Wii back in 2012 it would have been kinda tough to predict how well the game would have done in sales.  After all, we haven’t really seen a major Soul Calibur game on any home based Nintendo consoles since Soul Calibur II which was released for the Nintendo GameCube back in 2003.   The cool thing about the Nintendo GameCube version  of Soul Calibur II was the fact that Link from the Legend of Zelda was an exclusive character in that game.

If Soul Calibur V was ported for the Nintendo Wii back in 2012 then having Link return as an exclusive character could have definitely worked.   However, trying to fit Link into the story mode of Soul Calibur V could have ended up being an issue.  Also, it seemed like Project Soul were trying to build the game mainly around Pyrrha and Patroklos in relation to the story mode of Soul Calibur V.    While its possible that a Wii version of Soul Calibur V could have definitely worked in theory there are many who believe that the game may not have done as well in terms of sales in comparison to the PS3 or the Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Could Street Fighter X Tekken have worked on the Nintendo Wii?

Street Fighter v Tekken‘As popular as Street Fighter X Tekken was back in the early 10’s there would be some people who would probably agree with the fact that Street Fighter X Tekken may not have worked for the Nintendo Wii.  When it comes down to crossover fighting titles the Nintendo Wii already had Tatsunoko vs Capcom which was released back in 2008.  However, when it  comes down to popularity in relation to video games first and third person shooter video games seemed like they were more popular in the late 00’s and the early 10’s especially for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. There are some who would argue that if Street Fighter X Tekken was a Wii exclusive the game may have sold over one million units worldwide back in 2012.

However, when it comes down to graphics and quality having a Wii port of Street Fighter X Tekken may not have been quite as good as the PS3 or the Xbox 360.  But when it came down to fighting games Street Fighter X Tekken was definitely a game that the Wii needed more than the PS3 or the Xbox 360 back in the early 10’s.  But when in regards to popularity the Nintendo Wii was not quite on the same level as the PS3.  Since Nintendo started featuring more family friendly titles on the Wii there is a decent chance that Street Fighter X Tekken may not have done as well on the Wii console as it did on the PS3 or the Xbox 360 as far as sales are concerned.

NintendoSwitchWhen it comes the actual Switch console its storage capacity contains up to 32 GB.   There are games such as Super Mario Odessey, Arms and others that takes up a few gigabytes on the Nintendo Switch.  For owners of the Nintendo Switch who have multuple games for the hybrid console this would be considered a problem.  As of right now there aren’t to many games for the Nintendo Switch.  But as we move forward throughout 2018 there are going to be more games that Switch owners will want to buy aside from the ones that are currently availablein retail stores right now.

Should Capcom make a remastered version Street Fighter X Tekken?

Street Fighter v Tekken

Street Fighter X Tekken was crossover fighting game that the gaming world has been waiting to see since the 90’s.  Ever since 2012 there have been many people who question whether or not Capcom ever plans on re-releasing a remastered version of Street Fighter  X Tekken.  In the past couple of years since Street Fighter X Tekken was first released there has really been no major talk about its possible re-release for a current generation console.  However, there are die hard fans of Street Fighter X Tekken who would love to see it happen simply because as a fighting game it was so much fun to play.  Even though, Street Fighter X Tekken was not as popular as games like Super Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs Capcom 3 or even Tekken 6 it was still one of those games that many retro gamers from the 90’s never though they would see.

In fact the demand to see a remake for Street Fighter X Tekken is so high that a online petition was started a while ago to have the game remastered in future for either the PS4 or the Xbox One.  Street Fighter X Tekken may be one of the only titles where we get to see characters such as Ryu, Kazuya, Chun-Li, Heihachi Mishima, Guile and others all in one game.  If anything an online petition for a remastered version for Street Fighter X Tekken could be considered a testament to how cool this game was and still is following its release back in 2012.

Should Soul Calibur III have ported for Xbox in 2005?

Soul Calibur 3

When it comes down to games in the Soul series Soul Calibur III is arguably one of the best game in the series.  For whatever reason Soul Calibur III does not get talked about as much as it should and even though it was a PS2 exclusive the game still managed to be a success and sold over one million units worldwide since its release in late 2005.  One of the many features about Soul Calibur III that stood out was the one player Chronicles of the Sword mode which gave players the chance to utilize custom characters.   The Chronicle of the Sword mode was probably one  of the best one player modes in the Soul Calibur series along with the roster of characters that were featured in the game itself

Even though, Soul Calibur III could have worked for the Xbox console in theory the fact that it was a PS2 exclusive may have been one of the reasons why the game was a success to begin with.  However, its a bit surprising that Soul Calibur III was never re-released for a next generation console such as the PS3 following its release for the PS2 in Fall of 2005.

Could Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars have worked on the PS3 in 2010?

tatsunoko vs capcom (2).jpg

When it comes down to crossover fighting titles of the 00’s Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars is a game that doesn’t get talked about as much.  After Tatsunoko vs Capcom was first released in arcade centers back in 2008 the game was eventually ported for the Nintendo Wii and released in the Spring of 2010.  Even though, Tatsunoko vs Capcom was a Wii exclusive there are some who question whether or not the game could have been more of a success on the PlayStation 3 back in 2010.  In theory, it would seem like Tatsunoko vs Capcom would be perfect for the PS3.  However, back in 2010 Super Street Fighter IV and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm were both very popular titles within the fighting genre back in 2010.

If Tatsunoko vs Capcom was released on the PS3 in 2010 the game would have definitely have been overshadowed on that console opposed to the Nintendo Wii.   Besides the gaming world eventually got to see the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3 the following year in Fall of 2011.   If anything the Nintendo Wii needed the Tatsunoko vs Capcom game more than the PlayStation 3 or the Xbox 360 did back in 2010 as far as fighting titles were concerned.

Should Xenoblade Chronicles have been ported for the PS3 in 2010?

Back in the early 10’s we got to see Xenoblade Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii.  Ever since its release back in the Summer of 2010 Xenoblade Chronicles has been an action role playing game that has stood out on the Nintendo Wii with various features such the inclusion of a real time battle system and the New Game + mode which was very convenient in helping players complete the game altogether.  As popular as Xenoblade Chronicles was for the Nintendo Wii at the time there are some who cannot help but feel that the game should have been ported or even released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 back in 2010.

Xenoblade Chronicles (2).jpg

However, when it comes down action games the PS3 had some interesting titles back in 2010 such as Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Mass Effect 2 and Fallout: Las Vegas that Xenoblade Chronicles would had to have contended with if the game was released for that console.  In a way releasing Xenoblade Chronicles exclusively for the Nintendo Wii may played a significant role in helping the game sell close to one million units worldwide for that console.  If Xenoblade Chronicles was released for the PS3 back in 2010 the game might not have done as well in sales as many people would have expected.
