That ThinkGeek Mega Buster replica is now available
by Chris Carter

I was just playing through Mega Man 4 the other day, and man does the Mega Buster still feel good. The whole game does actually -- all of the NES titles have aged quite well.

If you want to relive those moments in real life, ThinkGeek is now selling its Mega Buster replica for $79.99. To recap, it has flashing lights and sounds, so you can run around your house and go "pew pew" to your heart's desire.

Mighty Gunvolt's DLC levels are worth the few bucks they cost

Mighty Gunvolt has just acquired some DLC and it's cheap, ringing in at $2.99. So what do you get? Four stages, and subsequently, four boss battles. That's it. There's no fanfare for the new levels or new story -- they'...

How a little girl from Lebanon went on to develop games in Japan photo
How a little girl from Lebanon went on to develop games in Japan
by Jonathan Holmes

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on Youtube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

Last week on Sup Holmes, we did a lot of stuff. First off, we launched a contest for a signed CD by famed Mega Man composer Manami Mastumae. You can still enter if you want. Check out the show for details. 

Fittingly enough, this week's guest was Mastumae-san's friend Dina Abou Karam, the community manager for Comcept (Mighty Number 9). Dina is my new definition of a hardcore gamer. Against all odds, her love of videogames has driven her down a life path that's been packed with unlikely and amazing events. From a little girl playing bootleg copies of JRPGs and gold farming in Final Fantasy VII to developing an autobiographical game about naked people in Japan and working for Mega Man cocreator Keiji Inafune, it's always been videogames for Dina. They are what excite her, motivate her, and fascinate her. Her passion is palpable and infectious. It's no wonder that Comcept chose her to be the online face of the company.

We talked about a lot of things -- Bayonetta 2's awesome design and mismatched marketing, Dina's first commercially released game (Plushed),  the first game she ever remembers playing (a weird monkey-infused version of Tetris), videogame enthusiast culture in Lebanon, and a lot more. I hope this isn't the last time Dina appears on the show. I imagine she'll be in this industry for a long time. It will be exciting to see what she creates next.

Target Acquired is the new game from famed Mega Man composer

Some games are worth playing just for the music. As much as I love the Mega Man series, I have to admit that they can be a chore to play with no music, especially if you keep dying. An endless array of problems can be a trea...
