This year will mark the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man (or Rockman) video game series in Japan. To mark this marvelous occasion, Japanese bicycle maker KhodaaBloom recently released a special bike on February 17th. “What so special about this bike?” you may ask. Well, the bike in question is adorned by the color motif, the Japanese box art design and the 8-bit pixellated design of the … Continue reading Presenting the Official Mega Man Bicycle. Just What The World Needed…
The fastest speedruns being in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard are being finished on easy mode and use special weapons. However, one runner, a YouTuber who goes by the name Quizzle, went to the next level by upping the difficulty all the way to the game’s hardest difficulty (called Madhouse) and hacked their way through with a pocket knife and DOESN’T DIE ONE, SINGLE TIME! You might … Continue reading Some Brave Soul Just Completed ‘Resident Evil 7’ With Only A Knife On Hardest Difficulty…
The eight-minute video above is something else. It features the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, comprised of people in their 50s (or older), many of whom have likely never played a game in the Mega Man series, flawlessly perform theme songs from the games. It is quite the amazing sight! Most of the set has music from Mega Man 3, but also includes music from 1 and 2, as … Continue reading Here’s a Full Swedish Orchestra performing a Mega Man Medley…

While Capcom is spinning its wheels on the series (although Resident Evil HD Remastered was prettybfreaking good and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 looks very promising), YouTube user Rod Lima has finished a complete remake of Resident Evil 2 in Unreal Engine 3, with the video above containing Claire’s A scenario from start to finish. Maybe THIS is the remake that us RE fans wanted for arguably the best game of the classic (tank-controlled) RE series. Sure, the GameCube remake was awesome, but what about the second one?
Mega Man fans aren’t just hardcore (Mega Man 3 FOR THE WIN), we are quite the dedicated bunch. What’s that? You want me to give you an example as to WHY? Well, how about this awesome fan game that two (count ’em, TWO) people have been working on since 2008. The game is called Mega Man: Revenge of the Fallen (and I know what you’re thinking; it’s NOT a Transformers reference). The subtitle is actually a reference to the game’s story, which involves the Robot Masters being revived by the evil (or misunderstood?) Dr. Wily, and they’re out looking for revenge on the Blue Bomber. Naturally (because VIDEO GAMES), it’s your job to stop them. Continue reading “Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man Game”

What if you’re like me and you’re short on time and have a LONG on a gaming backlog, but you’re interested in playing The Evil Within? Gamebill Studio is here to help, and similar to their other projects, The Evil Within: The Movie comes with a few additions and improvements to help transition the game to a more movie-friendly format. In the words of editor Nabil … Continue reading The Evil Within Turned into a Two-Hour Horror Flick
One on the crown jewels in my NES game collection is Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, 1/3 of the Disney-Capcom NES “Holy Trinity” (including DuckTales and Darkwing Duck). It’s one of my favorite retro games, as it contains a host of secrets, alternate/optional paths, tight controls, and its near-infinitely re-playability value due to the game’s speed and two player option. While the game had only one sequel that came at the twilight of the NES’ life-cycle (like DuckTales, which was also recently remade), the fervor over the game series never really caught on past retro gaming enthusiasts. Continue reading “It’s Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers’ NES-Reimagining by ‘Owlboy’ Artist”
What I love about pro wrestling is that it can take larger-than-life personalities and fantasies, and make them as real as they can be, live and in living color (in living WHAT?!). Over in Oakland, popular video game franchise Street Fighter was real; at least for one night earlier this year. Oakland’s wrestling crew at Hoodslam took on Capcom’s fighter and put it in the ring for the live audience and the WHOLE INTERNET to watch of episode 14 of its series, titled “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Hoodslam”. In case the video embedded above doesn’t start at the right spot for you, you’ll want to begin at 3:12. While some of the action before hand is pretty entertaining, you may want to check out Vega’s entrance at 3:12. That, and if you remember Vega from the 1994 Street Fighter movie (for the love of all things holy, IGNORE The Legend of Chun-Li), you’d figure out just how awesome Vega is. He’s pretty amazing in the above video too.
