Rockman Xover

Rockman Xover is your new Mega Man game... for iOS

Guys, I owe you an apology. The other day, I wrote about a fan-driven Mega Man Legends concept album, and I begged you all to stay on topic and not go off on a tangent about how you felt Capcom wronged you. I apologize because, right now, I'm about to become a big, honkin' hypocrite.

Capcom has finally announced its software plans for Mega Man's 25th anniversary. Rockman Xover (read "Rockman Crossover") gathers heroes and villains from across the franchise's myriad sub-series for an RPG adventure. According to the story, Dr. Wily, Sigma, and other baddies have confined all the Mega Men in a pocket of space-time, so it's up to Drs. Light and Cossack to construct a new robot. However, you have to assemble the Mega Man yourself, in effect customizing it however you see fit.

Oh, and it's for iOS devices. And it's "social."

That's just great. Relegate the once lofty Mega Man empire to the mobile realm for its 25-year celebration. I don't give two shits about how "valid" the iPhone is as a gaming device; the truth is that many companies still treat the platform as a dumping ground, Capcom included. From the available screens, it looks to be running on the same engine, sporting the same art style, as the infuriating Mega Man X iOS port. Considering what a disappointing turd that was, I have zero hopes for Xover.

And check it -- notice the autoplay button? It's gonna be one of those RPGs, in which you can let the computer to do the grunt work while you touch yourself to farm porn videos or something. Are you kidding me? This is our 25th anniversary game? There better be something else in the pipeline, because this doesn't cut the mustard. I swear to baby Jesus, it's like Capcom wants people to hate Mega Man.

Rockman Xover is looking at an autumn release in Japan, yet I'm certain it'll make it Stateside soon afterwards. Obviously, this is what we've all been waiting for. Here you go, fellas! No grand series revival or compilation discs, a la Kirby's Dream Collection or even the Classic and X collections on the PS2, GC, and Xbox! Nope! Have some iPhone garbage and say it tastes like Grey Poupon!

Fucking ass.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.

XCom 2 is a good game that feels it needs to punish the player for not being omniscient. Still, it does have its moments. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXZvYRfVFuY

I've reluctantly sauntered back to Hyperdimensia Neptunia: Rebirth 2 after a lengthy hiatus. I'm really not feeling Broccoli nor Red. Maybe Red a little more since she's a waifu protector.

I can't choose simply one waifu for myself, so I've been obsessed with looking up netorare hentai. That way, I know every trick to steal all of your waifus away and keep them all to myself. It's the perfect plan! The only problem: I only have one dick. :(
