WARNING: This entry contains a rant.

You ever had such high hopes for something, only to have that hope shot down at every turn? That's how I feel today. Where to begin...

Some years back, Mega Man Legends 3 was announced for the 3DS, and then canned, because, to be blunt about it, Capcom are jackasses, not even giving the fans a real reason to justify they're decision. This prompted someone on Facebook to start a group called 100K Strong For Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3. Despite achieving the goal of gaining 100K Members, Capcom said it "did not matter". Around this time, Keiji Inafune, one of the central men behind Mega Man, started a Kickstarter Campaign for a new, Mega Man-like title called Mighty No. 9. People praised this idea, and it was called an "in your face attack at Capcom for they're negligence". However, several promised release dates later, now into 2016, Mighty No. 9 is nowhere to be found, and it's development team appears to have gone quiet, leading many to believe it was a scam the whole time, myself now included.

What I don't understand, is why would anyone do this? You take the money of hopeful fans, only to knock them down. What is the logic behind that? Can one really be so bored they they feel the need to steal money out of fans' wallets? My only guess is that the publisher, Deep Silver (who was already terrible anyway), caused a lot of this grief for people.

What *really* doesn't help matters is that the market is overflowing with stupid, weak, and just plain un-fun indie titles. Once trusted companies like Nintendo are also falling. If there is one thing I want to make very clear, Indie Devs are NOT saving gaming, they are speeding up it's inevitable second crash.

My point is, it doesn't seem like anyone, Triple-A Devs included, are going to step up and wipe out this Indie Plague. That said, as Mighty No. 9 has failed to release (since it was likely a scam, as I mentioned before), that failure to appear has only pushed Indie Devs into further thinking they can save gaming, when they can't.

And yes, I know I'm ranting, and all of you will probably disagree with me, but seeing all this, especially in my current life situation, which is not helping the matter, I really do believe a second crash is coming soon, and it is NOT going to be pretty.
