Get the Capcom mug.
A Japanese video game company. Known for classic titles such as Mega Man, Street Fighter, and Resident Evil. You know... Capcom is a lot like Elvis. Awesome and revolutionary in its younger years... but then it got old and fat and lazy and is eventually gonna die in the crapper. Also has plenty of impersonators.
Capcom sure did make some awesome games... still does every once in a while...

A company that focuses way too much on its fighting games.
Hey Capcom, I know Street Fighter and <insert company here> vs. Capcom games are very popular and they're the reason why you have a massive fanbase, but how about making a sequel to 1944: The Loop Master?

Company that has made lots of crap games lately (with the exception of RE4). Think that churning out Megaman games with no story with get them money.
Capcom is blowing it big time, the only real money they'll make is on RE4

Former fighting game and platformer superpower that as of right now has no purpose.
God damn it, cut the thriller crap and give us Street Fighter 4, Capcom. You're already losing money on your crappy new titles.
