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.

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.
This weeks episode of the mighty, MIGHTY PractitioNERD WIRed has contents of: an alternate entrance with a wooden beach in Russia, the Kickstarting and simplistic success of the Pressy, Capcom’s Street Fighter documentary & the story of Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan.

I have a question for you. Would you have an hour of free time or so? You could just sit back, kick up and relax your feet, party on down to an X-scape beat (see what I did there), OR you could spend that free hour watching a brand new free to watch documentary from Capcom. The above film is titled “I Am Street Fighter,” which … Continue reading Watch Capcom’s FREE ‘I Am Street Fighter’ Documentary! NOW!
With the news coming from San Diego Comic-Con that Capcom would be releasing an update/remake/HD-ified/something of the classic “Strider” series sometime next year, my brain was immediately hit with memories of playing the port of “Strider” on the Sega Genesis that belonged to a close friend. Years later when I repurchased a Genesis, I found and bought a boxed version of “Strider” for the Genesis (sans instruction manual), and spent hours replaying the classic from my childhood. P.S., I know there’s a NES port, but it was terrible, especially compared to the Genesis port ; the Genesis version was the EGM Video Game of the YEAR in 1990! Point. Proven! Continue reading “Memories of ‘Strider’ on Sega Genesis!”
One of my favorite gaming memories as a child was playing Disney & Capcom’s DuckTales on the good old Nintendo Entertainment System in the early 1990’s. The game was just perfect, solid and tight controls, go-anywhere levels, tons of secrets and surprises, awesome boss battles, and the music — oh my God, THE MUSIC; especially the theme from the Moon level. Based on that, I was BEYOND EXCITED for the news from Capcom at the Penny Arcade Expo that developer WayForward would be responsible for the high-definition, remastered remake of that same DuckTales game for current generation consoles! Check out the trailer after the break, and who knows; you might solve a mystery…OR REWRITE HISTORY!!!!!!!!! Continue reading “DuckTales: Remastered is REAL?!? THANK YOU, JESUS!!!”
Even though I have shown more love for Sonic on this site, I have shown my fandom for Capcom’s Blue Bomber, Mega Man. I’ve mentioned the FACT that Mega Man 3 is better than Mega Man 2, the 25th anniversary soundtrack collection, and the crossover comic with Sonic, and today I share the new 8GB Mega Buster USB stick for $19.95, that should be on sale at the Capcom Store this week. But this USB drive is much MORE than meets the eye. Continue reading “Mega Man’s Mega Buster Mega-busting USB Stick”
