October 7, 2014 - Cameo Games
Yep, Smash Bros. is out, at least on the 3DS. It’s only a cameo appearance, but I’ll be picking up a copy. A shame I can’t get screen shots. I’m still working my way through Project X Zone as well.
August 15, 2014 - Mega Man 9 Interview
For those who may have missed it, shmuplations.com has a translation of a fun Mega Man 9 interview that was included with the Rockman 9 soundtrack. I wonder if IntiCreates has ever heard of DeluxePaint...
August 2, 2014 - Mega Man Game Music
As someone who used to plug games into my tape deck and record their music onto cassettes (yes, I stole that line but it still perfectly applies in my case)...and then spend many hours on my computer meticulously editing the songs to remove sound effects and properly loop them... Actually, it’s almost disheartening to see that now it’s as easy as popping in a CD—or buying the songs off iTunes. But no, seriously, it’s great that they’re releasing Mega Man game music here in the U.S. and in various ways. It’s funny how much these sorts of releases obsolete the Song of the Whenever section. It used to be hard to listen to game music on demand. Those days are long past...
August 2, 2014 - Rereleases
More Mega Man games are coming available for you folks who have a Wii U and/or 3DS. As mentioned below, those include Mega Man Battle Network and even Battle Chip Challenge (now there’s a relatively obscure one!). A new title gets released each Thursday, so check back weekly!
July 8, 2014 - Virtual Console
I’ve mentioned the 3DS virtual games, but in case I haven’t pointed this out in a while, you can also get a bunch of titles on the Wii U. There are a number of Battle Network games up there, which, while somewhat more convenient on a handheld, might still be worth picking up if you never played them on a GBA.
June 17, 2014 - Video Games Live
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will be doing a live performance of various video game musics arranged for orchestra, including (at the head of the list) Mega Man. You can find out more information on their event page. The concert’s on July 26 and includes a Guitar Hero contest and a VIP package to meet the performers and snag the conductor’s score!
May 2, 2014 - Game Boy Games
I mentioned this earlier, but if you have a 3DS, this month you can start picking up (the rest of) the Mega Man Game Boy games on their Virtual Console. It’s amusing how the poll results turned out, as personally I would have more or less flipped the list. My order would be: Mega Man V, Mega Man IV, Mega Man Xtreme 2, Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man III, Mega Man II. Or something like that. But hey, you get them all sooner or later!
April 13, 2014 - First Look, Final Smash
And CapcomUnity has this one covered as well, but head over to see (among other things) a very fast montage of Mega Man’s move-set in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. My personal remarks on this? Well, first of all, most of the moves look as though they will be quite useful in the context of the way the game plays. Pulling out Rush in midair is a pretty hilarious tribute to dropping him on spikes. I like how they animated the Leaf Shield. And that Yoshi with the Crash Bomb...I know what move I’ll be using a lot!
April 3, 2014 - Dawn of X
CapcomUnity has already covered this, but the Archie comic is going to be delving into the X series, and Comicosity has an interview with some of their creators to shed a bit of inside light on the process.
March 18, 2014 - Jackets
Over in the apparel department, looks like Capcom’s got a rather clever jacket design up for sale (men’s and women’s). If you have the funds, it’s limited edition; I’m not sure they’ll make any beyond the preorders. So you’ll have to be quick to snatch one up.
January 1, 2014 - Happy New Year!
Has it really been 20 years?
December 3, 2013 - Video Novel
Now here’s something different. Remember that Mega Man 2 novel from a long time ago? Someone has animated it and put the dialogue to voice. And just think—the stages were a lot shorter in the book!
November 22, 2013 - Videos
Here are some more YouTube videos to highlight. First, the entire game of Mega Man 1 played through using remastered music. Followed by Mega Man 2...on guitar. (You know the music in that game just screams electric guitar.)
November 22, 2013 - Fantasy Achievements
What kind of achievements would Mega Man X have, if Mega Man X had achievements? Well, you can look at some of the evil ones for Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 for inspirations. Or just take a look here for some fan suggestions.
October 11, 2013 - Charity Marathon
Over at Storm Unity they’re doing another charity event for Child’s Play Charity, this time going through the Mega Man X series games. There are some bonuses thrown in, including raffle prizes and some special guests. Check it out!
October 2, 2013 - Mighty No. 9
Well, the Kickstarter campaign period for Mighty No. 9 has ended. As for the stretch goals reached? Try: All of them? =)
September 2, 2013 - Mighty No. 9
Just an update on my previous post: It took them less than two days to reach their funding goal for Mighty No. 9. It’s going to go much higher than that, so we’ll see what kind of stretch goals they reach!
September 1, 2013 - Mighty No. 9
Well, it’s not exactly Mega Man, but if anyone can copy the Mega Man games, it would be Mr. Inafune himself. His new company has set up a Kickstarter for an unapologetically Mega Man-style game title. As of this writing it went up yesterday, and is already generating quite a buzz. In fact, in one day they’ve almost reached their goal already. But the campaign goes on for a month, so there’s still time for you to jump on board.
August 6, 2013 - Board Games
Several people have sent me this link, so I figured I may as well put it out there. I haven’t found any real information yet, but it’s an upcoming Mega Man board game by a company called Jasco Games. (And yes, there is already an NT Warrior board game, which I actually own.) As a side note, and rather amusingly, this same company also has a “Universal Fighting System” game (of which Mega Man will take part) which attempts to answer the question “Who would win a fight between...?” (though really, there is no correct answer).
July 19, 2013 - Game Boy Games
So, Capcom’s set to soon be selling the classic series and X series Game Boy games on the 3DS. So go get them—especially Mega Man IV and Mega Man V. =)
June 13, 2013 - Super Smash Bros.
Yep, Mega Man will be a player character in the newest Smash Bros. Capcom Unity has a pretty good line-up of his capabilities. Mega Man gets a pretty big focus in the reveal trailer. I’ll bet the video had more impact at E3 because of the humorous way it was executed. It looks like it is about to end, and probably people were turning away to go on to other things, and then suddenly “New Challenger” appears. (Not to mention that silhouette could have been one of several different characters, but once that helmet appeared, it became quite obvious.)
April 27, 2013 - Toys We Wish We Had As Kids
Capcom-Unity has (had) photos of some pretty amazing D-Arts figurines. They’re called “statues.” I’m amused that they use car paint. The entire line is pretty good stuff...and they’re available over here!
April 19, 2013 - Voice Videos
The man of many faces (watch the video to see what I mean) who did the Spark Mandrill rendition mentioned below has come out with another one, this time Dr. Wily’s fortress from Mega Man 2 (boy, that sure is a popular song). Ironically, my personal opinion is that his faces were better in the Spark Mandrill one, but the tune is more spot on with the Dr. Wily song (some of the “instruments” sound totally synthesized). Still, they’re both great arrangements.
April 19, 2013 - Maverick Hunter Prime
I was sent this link a short while ago, but thus far I’ve been unable to find any sort of confirmation on it. It actually strikes me as an April Fool’s joke, but it was posted on the wrong date, so probably it’s not. Anyway, take of it as you will. It’s not uncommon for companies to develop prototypes and then quietly ditch them without ever announcing them publicly. Though I have to say, this is one of the more...creative redesigns I’ve seen of the character yet. =)
April 11, 2013 - Video Links
A couple of links since I haven’t posted in a while. First up is one that I should have posted a long time ago (better late than never, I guess?). It’s Dr. Wily’s fortress music from Mega Man 2 using real instruments that nevertheless manages to sound an awful lot like the original NES tune. The second video link is Spark Mandrill’s tune...acapella. Just watch his faces. Talk about over-dubbing.
