Capcom Teases More Mega Man

Mega Man has held a special place in gaming for me since I first played Mega Man 1 back in the day.  At first, I thought the game was easy…until I fought the level boss.  It was then that I realized there was going to be some strategy involved in this seemingly normal side scroller.  I was hooked. Mega Man 6 has just released on the 3DS virtual console, and there are are more planned for the...

The most comfortable power up ever

It was always an excellent moment in Mega Man when you stumbled across the coveted energy canister, and now you can relive that moment again and again on your couch, bed, floor—whatever. Surely, some enterprising retail firm will import this beauty from Japan. Surely.

This fan made game based on the Mega Man universe has surfaced on the net. It’s a pretty interesting example of what we believe Mega Man Universe might be so I thought I’d share it with the rest of you. Also, Ryu would be the the hardest boss in Mega Man history if this was real.
