Seth Killian Leaving Capcom

Seth Killian, community manager, PR and all-around nice guy, is leaving Capcom this Friday to pursue other interests. Seth has been working with Capcom for a few years now on many of their fighting games such as Street Fighter 4 and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. So much so that the final boss of SF4 was named after him. Seth has always been a fan first and a Capcom employee second, but he's always been a great guy.

You likely know by now that we don't have much respect for Capcom anymore these days and seeing the one guy at Capcom who seems to actually give a damn what the fans think leave is absolutely heartbreaking. Seth has always been present in the fighting games community, commentating at events such as Evo and just supporting competitive players and fighting game fans for years. Capcom just won't be the same without him and I personally think with his departure, they now have nothing left to offer anybody. Yeah sure, there's Yoshinori Ono, but he seems to just be going through the motions and doing whatever Capcom wants at this point. Seth actually seemed to care about the games and the fans.

Thanks for being there, Seth. Hope we still get to see you at Evo and hope you go to work for a better company. Just keep being you, buddy.
