Not all of you may know who Seth Killian is, but for millions of people, he has been the face of Capcom USA for the past six years. As Community manager and "Special Adviser" at the company, he had a hand in some of Capcom's greatest community events and promotional schemes, from Mega Man 9 NES cart sales to national Fight Club events to teasing the existence of "the Mega Man 9 secret" to adorning our world in Street Figther IV snuggies. He was also instrumental in the development and publishing of Street Fighter x Tekken, Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and Street Fighter IV. Capcom even named the last boss of Street Fighter IV after him. Quite an honor, one that I feel that fully he deserved.
The guy has a PhD in philosophy. There are a million different jobs he could have chosen, most of which probably wouldn't have involved having Mega Man fans make up stories about punching him in the face. Through it all, his passion for the fighting game community, and for Capcom games in general, worked to make Capcom a better developer/publisher. Whoever is replacing him has some tough shoes to fill.
There's not clear word on why Seth is leaving Capcom, though he is hinting at future projects- "I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream, but to everyone that ever believed in this dream we shared together, let me say this final thanks. I will leave as I began--a Capcom fan for life, looking forward to all the great games still to come." You can check out his full goodbye message here.
It's the end of an era for Capcom.
Back when we first reviewed Capcom Arcade Cabinet we told you it would probably be best to just buy all the titles at once rather than dealing with the staggered releases of game packs. That time is now. You'll get all 15 gam...more
Sure, the meme is a bit old but the added sound effects to the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video is what really made this spoof for me. Bravo, Capcom-Unity. [Thanks, Dale!]more
Some time ago, we learned off a rather odd project from Capcom -- a gritty Mega Man X FPS idea that never saw the light of day. Yep, Keiji Inafune gave ex-Retro Studios alumni the idea to re-imagine Mega Man similar to Metroi...more
