Mega Man X Legacy Collections axe Axel (and the rest of Guns N’ Roses)

Nineties platformer icons are a recurring theme this summer. While the return of Crash Bandicoot doesn't exactly set my heart ablaze, I am entirely down with the entire 8-game Mega Man X series coming to PC, bringing us generations worth of grim anime platform robo-murder all in one place. The two compilations now have a Steam store page and a price-tag to accompany earlier news of…

Mega Man 11 blasting into October

The real tragedy of Mega Man is that Capcom haven't followed Street Fighter's naming conventions with their vintage platformer series. We could've had Mega Man, then Hyper Man, Super Hyper Man, then... and today I could be talking to you about Totally Tubular Bodacious Radical Man rather than just plain ol' 'Mega Man 11'. Capcom have announced they'll launch it on October 2nd, see. Now…

Mega Man 11 and the Mega Man X Collection are coming to PC in 2018

Every iteration of Mega Man passed me by until I got myself a SNES Classic Mini yesterday and properly played Mega Man X for the first time. It’s quite good, so I now find myself craving more. Good news, then! All eight games in the Mega Man X series are coming to PC next year. They’ll be joined by a brand new game: Mega Man…

I've played a Castlevania Roguelike and I've played a Doom Roguelike, but I never expected to play a a Mega Man Roguelike. 20XX [official site], now in beta and available through Steam Early Access, plays more like the speedy, acrobatic Mega Man X series than vanilla Mega Man, with all of the dashing and wall-jumping you can handle. Built to support local or online two…

Freeware Garden: Mega Man: Revenge of the Fallen

I suggest you grab Mega Man: Revenge of the Fallen, a game years in the making, before Capcom intellectual property lawyers notice it and banish it into oblivion. This is a fan game using all sorts of protected trademarks and assets, but it's far too good to ignore.

Mega Bucks: Extra Crowdfunding For A Mightier No. 9

Mighty No. 9 is looking mighty fine, as we've established previously. It's Mega Man in all but name, with original creator Keiji Infafune at the helm, boss fights, power-stealing and a (nearly) spot-on visual style. Now, despite raising $3.8m on Kickstarter at the tail-end of 2013, Comcept have called to the crowd once again, seeking extra cash.

Mega Man vs Chun-Li For Free On Your PC

I could probably tell you more about the prohibition era than I could about Mega Man games. Did you know that, on average, Americans consumed three times as much hard liquor while the eighteenth amendment was in place than they do now? And that there were getting on for 100,000 illegal speakeasies in New York alone? By contrast, I can tell you that I once…
