We've all had a hearty laugh at Street Fighter X Tekken's take on the Blue Bomber -- part homage and part caricature. For better or worse, people will be talking about fat, middle-aged Mega Man for years to come. Still, how e... more
It's been a month since I last spoke of the game formerly known as Good People Die. That is outrageous. Thankfully, Aksys has uploaded the box art to Amazon, so I have an excuse to talk about it once again.
