Mega Man is neither apprehended nor slain. HOPE!

HOPE! I'm assuming you've all seen the new trailer for Phoenix Wright and Nova for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Along with the gameplay reveal of the new characters, some of the released gameplay videos also showed off some new stages. There's a certain detail in one of those stages that is causing a lot of buzz.

In the stage 'Future Past' there is a wanted poster showing off a bunch of characters with either the label 'slain' or 'apprehended'. Much like the Uncanny X-Men comic cover which features mutants from the X-Men series, this poster shows off a lot of characters from Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Each character already has a mark. Everyone except one character that is.

List of Apprehended Characters – Colossus Ruby Heart Gambit Hayato Psylocke BB Hood Unknown?

List of Slain Characters – Cyclops Marrow Ice Man Jin Saotome Cable Amingo Captain Commando Son Son

Characters with no label or an obscured label - Mega Man

Missing Characters – Thanos Blackheart Venom Juggernaut Omega Red Rogue Sabretooth Silver Samurai Spiral Anakaris Roll Servebot Cammy Charlie Dan Dhalsim Guile Ken Bison Sakura Zangief Uncanny X-Men #141

Mega Man Legends 3 Canceled

Mega Man Legends 3, a game that I have been dreaming for almost a decade now. That dream is oficially dead. Very sad news for Mega Man fans and 3DS owners ar, Capcom has canceled Mega Man Legends 3.

From [Gameinformer]

Announced via a blog post on Capcom-Unity, the publisher says the cancellation is due to the game failing to meet "required criteria" that would decide whether it went into full production. As such, Capcom says it has no plans to develop Legends 3 nor to release the prototype version of the game that was being worked on. The prototype was originally set to be distributed onto 3DS units via Nintendo's eShop in the near future.

Well, there goes any chance of me getting a 3DS now. Ocarina of Time 3D looks kickass but my driving force for even planning to get the glasses-free 3D handheld was Legends 3. Sad sad day.

Capcom can make it up to me though by releasing Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 on PSN but apparently they can't do that either due to licensing issues.

I know this video/song isn't quite new but I'm still on my Mega madness and I got compelled to search this and have been listening to it a little too much much.

To the windows, to the wall. Til the sweat drips from my ballz. I'm beating you down to the fuckin' ground. I got a Mega Buster for ya'll!


Moar Mega Man madness

Continuing my Mega Man craze, I put back Mega Man Powered Up in my PSP. you might have caught me playing it live on our channel.

The demo of both the new style and old style of cutman's stages where included in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X and when I last played Powered Up, I kinda cheated and just downloaded a save game on Gamefaqs with everything unlocked cause I was too lazy to unlock everything back then.

Now I started on a clean slate and I just beat all the 8 Robot Masters on the Easy and Normal difficulty. Easy so that I can beat them with just the Mega Buster so that they can become playable and Normal so that I can find the creation parts and beating stuff on Normal will unlock something later on.

So yeah, been playing that. Gutsman's stage is still the biggest load of BS in the Mega Man universe. I curse those damn moving platforms! Timeman's stage is also kind of a bitch at a certain point.




Did I mention that the game has a level editor mode? You can create custom stages and share them online. Here's an example of a stage that's impossible to beat. XD


RGP # 20 - Mega Man Zero

Random Gaming Post # 20

With my Mega Man craze going on right now, I was reminded of a certain series that was particularly awesome back in the GameBoy Advance era.

Mega Man Zero was one of my favorite Mega Man series'. They gameplay felt fresh yet familiar, the character art captured me, and the story, for what it's worth, isn't that bad though I admit a little strange.

This brought me to one of my favorite moments from the MMZ series. MMZ3 in particular touched my heart due to one boss battle. The final battle of the game between you and Omega. Not just Omega but his true form.

Spoiler alert, if you have not played the MMZ games and are planning to, stop reading this right now. Where was I, ah yes. The final encounter battle between you and Omega's real form. The original Zero body. Now of course final boss battles are usually against these giant hulking masses of robot in Mega Man games and you could also say in almost every other game. But it's these one on one boss fights that I like. Fighting against someone your own size makes it feel like you are on equal grounds and it's up to your skill to defeat the opponent.

Aside from the over all coolness of the twist and nature of the boss battle, the music is what made it win overall. Sometimes having a piano tune carry the song instead of the overlly rock n roll filled MMX/MMZ OSTs carry just makes it feel classy. And as I said, given the twist and nature of the battle, it just... fits

Don't have a GBA you say? Don't worry, Mega Man Zero Collection is available on the Nintendo DS. It contains all 4 MMZ games and can be played the way it was intended or in a way that helps you power through the game without the grinds.
