  1. During the announcement of Mega Man 11, Capcom also responded to fans who have been requesting support for the Nintendo Switch when it comes to the Mega Man series. That support comes in the form of Mega Man 11, the total Mega Man X collection, and Mega Man 1-10! The Mega Man Legacy Collection includes Mega Mans 1-6 and The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 consists of Mega Mans 7-10 (that's a lot of Mega Mans!). These will all be coming to the Switch in early Spring 2018. One minor change will be made to the new version the first collection; a rewind feature allows players to roll back time and undo mistakes, Braid style. This should help players looking to have an easier time completing the 8-bit side-scrollers. Those who already own the Mega Man Legacy Collection for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC will also be gaining the rewind feature. The Legacy Collections will be available for the Nintendo Switch sometime during Spring 2018.

  3. The Blue Bomber has just turned 30 years old and Capcom has given everyone's favorite robotic defender a gift: The surprise announcement of Mega Man 11! The new Capcom title aims to take the series in a bold new direction. While Mega Man 9 and 10 adopted the retro aesthetic of the original NES classics, Mega Man 11 makes use of 3D models and lighting to give the decades old franchise a new coat of paint. On top of that, the gameplay clips shown on the 30th anniversary livestream put on by Capcom offered glimpses at a handful of Mega Man's new powers. Charged shots, the return of Rush the robo-dog, an ability to summon a series of brick cubes on top of enemies, and an impressive ability that seems to temporarily supercharge Mega Man round out a few of the fun tools players will have at their disposal. Oh, and newcomers to the series who find the traditional difficulty daunting can take refuge in a lower difficulty mode (and those looking for additional challenge might just find more demanding modes). Capcom reassured fans who might be put off by the visual tweaks saying, "with an expert development team at Capcom, many of whom have been working at the company since the early 8-bit era, we’re revitalizing and revolutionizing Mega Man for a new generation while keeping the series’ tight classic gameplay and the heart of our beloved hero intact. Veterans can expect the series’ signature challenge, and we’re inviting new players to the mix with a variety of difficulty options to choose from in the game." Mega Man 11 is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2018.

  5. The first Mega Man Legacy Collection released back in 2015 and covered the first six titles of the Mega Man series. Those first six games represent the entire NES era of Mega Man. Capcom has announced that a second Legacy Collection will release containing the further adventures of side-scrolling Mega Man that released following Mega Man 6. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will contain Mega Man 7-10, covering the period of time when the series broke out of 8-bit graphics and into 16/32-bit action before returning to its 8-bit roots. Since 9 and 10 are modern installments, both will contain all DLC released for them to date. There will be minor tweaks and improvements throughout the four games of the collection. One of the major additions that could help new players appreciate Mega Man without the frustration is the new "Extra Armor" option that halves all damage taken and a checkpoint system to help pick up the action from a convenient distance instead of starting the level over from scratch. If that seems too easy, stages have been remixed for difficulty in the new Challenge Mode where players can compete and compare completion time with others around the world. For those who value gaming history, Capcom has also included an in-game museum that includes production art, sketches, development material, concepts, and a music player to listen to all the catchy bloops and bleeps of the Mega Man soundtracks. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 releases on August 8th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Oddly, the title doesn't appear to be coming to the Nintendo Switch at this time. View full article

  7. After two years of hard work, a group of dedicated Mega Man fans have created a remake of the the two 90s Mega Man titles for PC under the title of Mega Man DOS Remake. The confusingly named DOS games Mega Man and Mega Man III (there was no Mega Man II for DOS) hold the highly odious status of being the worst Mega Man games ever created. Many people don't even know that they exist, and Capcom is probably happy with that state of affairs. Why remake games that are so universally despised? The team explains on their download page, "The few who received a floppy disk instead of a cartridge for Christmas many years ago were greeted with unfair levels, plain bosses, and silent gameplay! Be it from lack of care, or maybe lack of ability[, these] games were bad, but every game can have a second chance right?" Mega Man DOS Remake has been totally revamped in the name of giving the forgotten horrors of the originals new life and another attempt at greatness. The two PC games are now one in the remake and have been redone in the classic NES style and now actually feature music during the levels, something the originals painfully lacked. There are nine robot masters to conquer and the level design shifts depending on what order players defeat the bosses. For players who find the remake too easy, Mega Man DOS Remake comes with a level editor that players can use to create their own stages, complete with a boss AI planner to get the most out of fan-created boss battles. It also includes time-attack and challenge modes. If this seems interesting, check out Mega Man DOS Remake for free over on its Steam Workshop page. It's still a work in progress, so be aware that you might encounter glitches. If you do, the development team asks that you notify them so they can fix the problem in the future. View full article

  9. Brazilian indie studio Cyber Rhino Studios has released a gameplay trailer for their upcoming shoot 'em up Gryphon Knight Epic. As Sir Oliver and Áquila, players must face off against hordes of deadly, enchanted enemies. The onslaught of magical foes is backed by other talented knights and their own special steeds, complete with potent abilities. Much like a Mega Man adventure, defeating these riders will give the player access to their weapons. In addition to new weapon types, players will be able to find potions and squires to help them on their way to defeat the fantastical threat facing their kingdom. Honestly, Gryphon Knight Epic looks like the kind of game that would have done really well as a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis title. It definitely looks like the kind of game I would have rented from a video rental store (remember those?) and never been able to beat. Maybe this is the next Shovel Knight? Gryphon Knight Epic will be releasing on August 20 for PC, Mac, and Linux. View full article

  11. In an unlisted year end YouTube video, the creator of Mega Man says that Comcept has finished the core game of Mighty No. 9 and are now entering the porting and promotional phases of development. In the video, Inafune wishes everyone a happy new year and talks about how hard the team at Comcept has been working to bring Mighty No. 9 to the public. Comcept's initial Kickstarter asked for $900,000 to make the spiritual successor to Mega Man, but the company received over $4 million in crowd funding. Usually receiving several times the amount of money asked for in a Kickstarter campaign results in delays, but Mighty No. 9 looks to be chugging smoothly along toward its spring 2015 release.

  13. Yesterday, in a nearly hour long Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo divulged many new tidbits of information on the upcoming fighting title coming to 3DS and Wii U. One of the biggest bombshells came at the beginning of the broadcast. Unlike what many people assumed, the two games will not be launching simultaneously. The 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. will be released this summer, while the Wii U version will be released sometime this winter. I'd be willing to bet good (none of that filthy bad money) money that gamers can expect the Wii U version to launch close to the holidays. For anyone worried about the technical performance of the 3DS version of Smash Bros., worry no more. It was confirmed that all fighters will run in 60 frames per second, even while 3D viewing is enabled. The summoned creatures from items like assist trophies will run in 30 FPS, but every player character will move in 60 FPS regardless of what else is happening on screen. There will also be substantial differences between the two versions. While both the 3DS and Wii U will have the same roster of fighters, they will have separate stages. Even stages of the same name in both will be tweaked and have different layouts in the two games. While the Wii U version will have a music player similar to the one found in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the 3DS will be limited to two songs per stage. There will be some kind of connectivity between the 3DS and Wii U versions, but what form that will take and how extensive it will be remains to be seen. More details should roll out around E3. The online multiplayer was revealed as well. Players will now be able to choose from two game modes: For Fun or For Glory. For Fun allows players to be put into games with random stages, all items on, with smash battles, and only wins are recorded. For Glory takes place on Final Destination, no items, 1v1 battle are possible, and both wins and losses are recorded. Of course, when playing with friends over the internet, players will be able to customize their settings to whatever they desire. Also, Final Destination has received an upgrade. Almost every stage now has a Final Destination form, giving more visual variety to one of the most iconic Super Smash Bros. arenas. Instead of having an online ranking system, players will accumulate Global Smash Power, which can be used to brag show your friends how good of a smasher you are. Nintendo insists that GSP will not be what matches you up against opponents, the stat tracker for that will be hidden. New fighters were also confirmed and shown off in great detail: Mega Man, Little Mac, Rosalina, Animal Crossing Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer. Characters that previously had multiple forms will now have a single form and move set. Meaning Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Sheik, and Zelda are now separate, playable characters. After the presentation concluded, the Pokémon Greninja was also revealed to be joining the cast. Finally, the 3DS version was shown to have a unique game mode called Smash Run. Players are thrown into a random dungeon full of monsters and pitfalls where they need to collect various stat-boosting power-ups within a five-minute time frame. After those 5 minutes are up, players are thrust into a battle against each other where they must make the best of the stats they accumulated in the dungeon. Overall, Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U are looking to be entertaining next-gen evolutions of one of the most popular fighting game series of all time. If you have the time, you can watch the Nintendo Direct for yourself below. View full article

  15. Sometimes it can be hard for the average video game enthusiast to find interesting video game art to adorn the walls of their abode. Luckily, there are skilled artists in various corners of the internet willing to sell their work for a fair price. Etsy is one such corner. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Etsy is basically the arts and crafts hub of the internet. People make clothes, furniture, jewelry, art, etc. and put it up for sale on the site, usually at quite a reasonable price. Given the popularity of video games, it isn't at all surprising that a significant portion of the Etsy artists and craftspeople decide to put out products inspired by some of their favorite video game titles. As you scroll through these awesome artistic renderings, bear in mind that these represent a small fraction of the work available on the main site. Click on the images for a better look at the artwork, or visit the linked Etsy pages for more details.

  17. Retro video game reviewer and content creator over at Cinemassacre.com James Rolfe (AKA The Angry Video Game Nerd) has accrued quite the following over the last few years. With over one million YouTube subscribers and his own website, he reviews old video games and movies, makes his own films, and works on various other projects like the Monster Madness month-long events. The Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) show that he creates reviews retro games and features a lot of amusingly hyperbolic language and rage-filled tirades about crappy game design. (AVGN Disclaimer: The show makes use of a very colorful vocabulary. If you are offended by vulgar language, it isn’t recommended for you.) Today marked the Nerd’s entry into the arena of making games. The debut trailer for Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, which you can see below, makes it clear that it will be a sidescrolling shooter in the vein of classics like Mega Man, while retaining the show’s sense of impropriety and James’ trademark exaggerated frown. Not much is known about the title as of yet, but the screenshots released alongside the trailer seem to indicate that many of the levels will draw inspiration from a variety of classic 2D sidescrollers like Super Mario World and Castlevania. The game is currently slated for release on PC sometime this year. People who are partial to Steam, you can visit the title’s Greenlight page and vote for it to be released on Steam. For more information, you can visit the Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Facebook page.

Today marked the Nerd’s entry into the arena of making games. The debut trailer for Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, which you can see below, makes it clear that it will be a sidescrolling shooter in the vein of classics like Mega Man, while retaining the show’s sense of impropriety and James’ trademark exaggerated frown. Not much is known about the title as of yet, but the screenshots released alongside the trailer seem to indicate that many of the levels will draw inspiration from a variety of classic 2D sidescrollers like Super Mario World and Castlevania. The game is currently slated for release on PC sometime this year. People who are partial to Steam, you can visit the title’s Greenlight page and vote for it to be released on Steam.
