|This is the one with the gems. I don't like the gems. I'm writing this to myself so I won't keep forgetting this is that one. : P|
It's a fighting game in what would become known as Capcom's "vs. series," although this one doesn't actually have a "vs" cross-over between characters from separate publishing universes--it just has characters from Marvel's line of super-hero comics. Including that darn Iron Man with his cheapo 360-degree "repulsor" blast. ; P
And there are these "Infinity Gems" (silly ultra-powerful MacGuffins from Marvel comics) that you pick up to give your character additional power in a fight, but if the other character hits you hard enough, the gem pops out and THEY can pick it up; so there's a lot of scrambling around for gems and dropping them and picking them back up, and it's all pretty annoying.
|Like the arcade version in Marvel vs. Capcom Origins on PS3, this one flashes the screen solid red for a frame when you score a hit while carrying an active Power gem--unless you're Wolverine, Psylocke, or Spider-Man (and not sure about Thanos).|
In this version you can supposedly turn gems off by having both players hold Select after choosing their character when going into VERSUS--but that only works in VERSUS, and there doesn't seem to be any vs COM option.
