Getting to know the people behind the Mega Man Board Game photo
Getting to know the people behind the Mega Man Board Game
by Chris Carter

It's safe to say that the Mega Man Board game Kickstarter is a massive success. In just under 24 hours it cleared $150,000, which far exceeds its $70,000 goal. But in an odd turn of events, Capcom is not funding the game -- they just gave board game manufacturer Jasco the license to create a project on their own.

I had a chat with Jasco Games president and founder, Jason Hawronsky, to see how a project like this comes to life, where you'll be able to pick it up once it's actually out, and what we can expect from Jasco and Mega Man in the future.

Mega Man feels the beat in Sound Rangers: Rhythm & Battle

When the late, great Tony Ponce wrote his heartfelt goodbye letter to Mega Man, I came at him like a know-it-all jerk, stating that there was no way that Mega Man series was "finished." With Inafune gone, I predicted that Meg...

Six ways Capcom could rush out Mega Man's birthday party photo
Six ways Capcom could rush out Mega Man's birthday party
by Jonathan Holmes

It's no secret that Capcom's relationship with its former mascot has been strained of late. All public conflicts aside, the company promised to do something for the character for his 25th birthday.

The Street Fighter X Mega Man fan game was a good start, but most were expecting something more. Something more than Xbox Live Avatars. Something more than a limited-edition statue. The fans have gone all out for Mega Man this year, while Capcom has been relatively motionless. 

It's not too late for Capcom to announce something big for the old, blue man-boy. Here are six suggestions to help get them started.
