Crossovers that need to happen!

So Tatsunoko vs. Capcom kicked our brains into high nerd, and now with Aliens vs. Predator blowing our minds with the crossover potential, we wondered what would happen if our favorite game companies put differences aside and synergized the shit out of all the stuff we love in the name of greater capitalism!


Above: Your wet dreams are becoming wet realities

Because crossovers ain’t just for fighting games anymore, and nobody knows that better than Capcom. Illogical though it may seem to have Albert Wesker fighting alongside Marcus Fenix in Lost Planet 2, it’s undeniably appealing to everybody but the stick-in-the-mud fanboy minority. Hell, we think it needs to become common practice! We love to see our favorite heroes occupying the same universe, and judging by how readers responded to the question “What two series would you love to see cross over?” you do too.


Above: You ask “Why?” But GR user grabboids asks “Why the f**k not?!”

Your suggestions melted our cold, journalistic hearts. Not only are we proud to present them to the world, we even went as far as to have our art team whip up the submissions from those devoid of artistic ability.

“A Super Smash Brothers style game called ‘Late Night Wars’:
-Jay "The Chin" Leno: Press down+B to screw over the player most threatening your chance to win the fight.
-Conan "MTV Generation" O' Brien: Quarter-circle-forward to perform an incredibly powerful attack. Has a 99% chance of missing if the target is over age 30.”

    I'd think a good mash up would be the Shin Megami tensei and a Pokemon series. Fighting battles with a persona and a pokemon in a pokemon like double battle to the death against shadows and other persona/pokemon trainers would be awesome. Izanagi fighting side by side with pikachu. Imagine the endless possibilities if the fusion aspect were introduced to the pokemon world.

    I want a Marvel vs DC matchup, but I want it to be as good as Street Fighter 4, not some crappy thing they make to make money, and I think a street fighter vs. Tekken would be good to

    Fuck console war. There is only one rivalry that needs to be settled. SONIC vs MARIO! SSBB style, every single character in both franchises (Except Chip and Silver and Birdo, for the good of mankind), and commence with the awesome.

    Make a C&C Tiberium universe meets the Red Alert universe. And maybe add starcraft into the mix and let the RTS awesomeness begin and forget Star Wars vs Mass Effect what really needs to happen is Star Wars vs Star Trek see? add Mass Effect later but seriously these to NEED to happen right NOW

  • GamerTagsSuck - February 18, 2010 1:54 a.m.

    Splinter Cell, Metal Gear Solid, and GoW's chainsaw bayonet. 'Cause no matter how much you hate that game, you gotta admit that the thing's badass.

    metal gear vs halo, mini bosses are rex and ray, rex is slow, and durable, and ray is fast / evasive but is less durable. oh, and max health decreases as you take damage. the main boss could be a stronger, faster version of revolver ocelot (3 costumes, may be liquid ocelot, ocelot, revolver ocelot), solidus snake, liquid snake, big boss, depends on the difficulty and it's in this order, only if somebody from metal gear is used, and for the halo series, whatever the main bosses of the games are.
