Let's watch 27 minutes of Rockman commercials!


2:00 PM on 11.23.2012



Thanksgiving is over, which means it's time to shift gears and focus on the next major celebration: the 25th anniversary of Mega Man! My writing output, which was already very Mega Man-heavy, is poised to become even more "mega mannish" in the coming weeks, so get ready!

Here are 27 straight minutes of commercials for nearly every major Mega Man title in every sub-series. Technically, the bulk of these are Japanese Rockman commercials, which far and away kick the crap out of the ones we saw in the States. It's amazing how many featured original animation and music just for a 30-second spot. I love the blend of hand-drawn art and 90s-era CG in those early X spots, and I kind of want an entire OVA done in the style of the Zero ads!

There are quite a few games missing from this massive montage, but I doubt you are going to find a more comprehensive collection anywhere else. Which commercials are your favorite?

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 raises more questions than answers

My time with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 at Tokyo Game Show was brief -- maybe 20 minutes if we're being generous. Swiftly dumped into the beginning of the game, I was left to try to unravel the mystery of what exactly ...more

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...

Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f...more
