While I know I have unintentionally dedicated this week to The Batman, and all of his ridiculous glory, I move away from Gotham’s Savior, with a safe confidence I’ve mentioned everything in The Batman universe worth mentioning.
While Warner Brothers did release another launch trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us, I think it’s been well established the game is going to kick ass, with or without multiple Batmans physically doing so. I leave behind The Caped Crusader with vigor, changing my attention from the black to the blue.
I’ve personally been playing through Mega Man 1 all week on my 3DS, and am never short of enthralled when I travel through the Blue Bombers old stomping grounds. I may already have purchased the game multiple times, but that doesn’t mean I can ignore my want to keep giving money back, to the very same people who have entertained me for so many hours.
The Blue Bomber not only boasts about past bravado, but is still reveling in his 25th anniversary. This has included a plethora of swag and mega madness. For anyone out of the loop, this free downloadable game called Street Fighter X Mega Man, pits the super fighting robot against the cast of Street Fighter II, and all of their adorable glory!
The game is classic Mega Man through and through, with an awesome cameo twist. A definite recommend for anyone who missed out, or never got around to it.
Looking even further into Mega Man’s future, yet another over the top mash up involving Capcom, Sega, and NamcoBandai comes in the form of Project X Zone, a tactical side scrolling RPG involving all three companies biggest franchises.
I’m super excited that the 3DS is getting such a unique title, and that the game even got localized in the first place. I’m hoping all of this recent star studded exposure for Mega Man, puts him back in a spotlight proper, and one befitting of a man who deserves to continue his own legend.
I don’t think it’s a matter of when companies make money, it’s a matter of how they make money. With recent events involving other companies famously losing CEO’s due to poor management, I was secretly hoping Capcom would be next. From their awful treatment of employees and their main visionaries alike, to the unabashed disrespect to gamers wallets, Capcom is in dire need of a management wide clean out that will set them straight. Too many great concepts have been in an awkward purgatory for way too long, and someone needs to start thinking about what really matters.
Thanks for stopping by to visit my neck of the woods, I always appreciate spreading the gaming groovy. I leave you now with one last nod to the Blue Bomber, with a stirring rendition of Dr.Wily’s theme from Mega Man 2, by Ewan Dobson. (Who’s every little bit gamer that we are).
