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.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.

Remember Black? That PS2 era shooter from Criterion? It has a REALLY good orchestral soundtrack. I'm gonna throw that in my MGSV iDroid. Why not.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.
