Marvel vs Capcom 3 launch party video

Earlier this week Marvel, Capcom, IGN and Sprint took their giant piles of money and threw one of the most lavish launch parties we've ever seen. There were gift bags, cosplayers, photo booths, hands-on sessions with Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter IV 3DS, plus a Patron-showered musical act hosted by David Banner and featuring DJ Qbert, Hieroglyphics and Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan. But best of all... it was open to the public! Fans lined up hours in advance, ready to get plastered and "act a fool."

I was able to pester some of first people in the door and ask them who would win in a fight between various Marvel and Capcom characters, so please to enjoy watching said hilarity. And then scroll on down for photos taken by our own Cheryll del Rosario!

Above: Cosplayers unite! Only four more hours until you can go in

Above: Spidey strutting his substantial stuff


Above: While waiting in line, you could read over some giant sized comic panels

Above: More art and put-out bouncers

Above: More like Captain CORPORATE America

Above: Everyone getting hands-on time with MvC3

Above: Iron Man attempting to bury the hatchet, but Deadpool ain't playin'

Above: DJ Goldenchyld opened up the night

Above: Which led into DJ Qbert's set, where he and Goldenchyld scratched over various Street Fighter SFX. Hadouken!

Above: So uh, then it starts to get pretty crazy once David Banner pulls out a gallon of Patron and pours it all over the crowd

    I wish I were there, looks like it was fun. Can't wait to pick this up tomorrow!
  • Genericpenisjoketista - February 14, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    Is anyone else turned on immensely by the last picture on the first page?
  • Raheria - February 14, 2011 3:28 p.m.

    Looks like a fun party. ... but calling Amaterasu a 'puppy' is pathetic.
  • ChuckB - February 14, 2011 7:25 a.m.

    Everybody is talking about Morrigon cosplayer but what about the chick getting poured over? That would a be friend I'd love to have. :)
  • Jetsetneo - February 14, 2011 4:59 a.m.

    That deadpool. Had like an awesome voice, now I'll just hear it every time I read one of his comics
  • xlyesterdaylx - February 14, 2011 4:07 a.m.

    That looks like a pretty crazy party for a game launch party. and also i clicked on the link for the morrigan lol
  • MrDuracraft - February 14, 2011 3:53 a.m.

    I love how she refers to Amaterasu as "the puppy." At least there was no Issun to be called a bug. And it's graet how Deadpool keeps trash talking even after the video cuts. (I know it was editing, but it was still great) Also... boobsboobsboobsboobsboobs

    I am very proud to be a nerd right right now.
  • moncealyo - February 14, 2011 3:50 a.m.

    Damn I need to move back to SF.
  • HardMetalManiac - February 14, 2011 2:23 a.m.

    Is it wrong I immedietly saw the giant bulge in Spiderman's crotch
  • philipshaw - February 14, 2011 1:06 a.m.

    Looked like a great party, wish I was there. Also I loved Brett's correction about Amaterasu being a God
  • Jasman - February 14, 2011 12:22 a.m.

    That Morrigan cosplayer is all hips :)
  • GamesRadarCheryll - February 13, 2011 8:25 p.m.

    @elpurplemonkey I was right next to the stage for most of the party so I could shoot all the artists that performed. Got lucky during that Patron shot 'cause the girl was right next to me.
  • Mamudo - February 13, 2011 5:08 p.m.

    @PushesPaperInACircle I understand that, but at the end of the day Capcom is going to add who they want.
  • shotgunalchemist - February 13, 2011 2:57 p.m.

    The Deadpool guy is trying way to hard.
  • Kipper - February 13, 2011 9:54 a.m.

    That Morrigan is one lascivious succubus... ^_^
  • hunterXhunter - February 13, 2011 8:31 a.m.

    Brett needs to cut his hair.
  • elpurplemonkey - February 13, 2011 7:03 a.m.

    This feature kinda makes me want to get the game. All those characters, it just looks so fun. And that Deadpool guy, great stuff. One thing though- that shot of the girl getting patron poured on her- how the hell did you guys get it? The angle makes it look like you were nearly on the stage. Looks like fun though (the party not the patron money shot.)

    Awesome video, but more importantly: I have the exact same shirt as Brett! That makes me substantially more attractive by the associative property!
