This is pretty damned cool if you ask me. I can count the number of times a developer hasoffered us, the illustrious gaming press, the chance to contribute anything to the final build of a game on a singlehand. But here's Capcom givingeverybody the opportunity, at no cost, and for one of my most anticipated games no less! I%26rsquo;d hop on this quickly, fellas. The game can only encompassso many %26ldquo;Tron Boner%26rdquo; jokes.
