Details on Mega Man The Board Game sound wild

While Jasco Games' Mega Man CCG is more or less ready to ship out the door, Mega Man The Board Game is still a work in progress. However, Jasco did go into some detail at Gen Con about how the game will progress and how it ca...

Mega Man card game will make me even more poor

Jasco Games, the company currently making that Mega Man board game, is using the same license to produce a set of cards as part of its Universal Fighting System line. I say without any sarcasm or cynicism that I think this is...

Wily and Mega Man team up in Mega Man #32

This month's Archie Mega Man issue ends with all technology on the planet shutting down. Planes in mid-flight plummet towards Earth, hospital monitoring equipment ceases to function -- we're talking an apocalyptic scenario he...

Dr. Wily wets himself in Mega Man #28

It's over! It's all over! It's all... PSYCHE! You think I'd stop covering the Mega Man comics just because the crossover is finished? Who do you think I am? Though the evens of "Worlds Collide" are technically canon to the ma...

The world has been shut down in Mega Man #31

I've been so busy diving into Sonic and Mega Man's "Worlds Collide" comic mini-series that I've neglected to talk about Mega's post-crossover story arc. How do you raise the stakes after a dimension-bending war against both D...

I met Keiji Inafune! We discussed Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z!
by Tony Ponce

Guys. I met Keiji Inafune at E3. I interviewed Keiji Inafune at E3.

I've achieved everything I've wanted to accomplish in my relatively short career as a games journalist. There is literally nothing else for me to do except pack my things and move on. I'm kidding, of course, but I'm not joking about how big a dream come true this was.

My meeting with Inafune was a complete surprise. Each of the Destructoid writers had been handed a list of appointments, and I saw Tecmo Koei on my schedule. I rightly assumed it was to discuss Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, but I had no idea whether I'd be speaking directly with someone from the dev team or not.

If I had known Keiji Inafune, the man whose work has had such a profound impact on hobby and my life, would be standing behind that door, I would have come prepared with a better list of questions. Nonetheless, I stepped in the room, put on my most professional face, and did my absolute best not to squeal like a schoolgirl.

Mega Man X pew pews onto Wii U eShop on May 30

Do you know why the above trailer is so amazing? Because X throws a Hadoken at Vile's ride armor at the 0:22 mark like he just doesn't give a f*ck. Of the games in the Mega Man X series, the first is definitely the best. S...

People actually like the Maverick Hunter reboot concept

Some time ago, we learned off a rather odd project from Capcom -- a gritty Mega Man X FPS idea that never saw the light of day. Yep, Keiji Inafune gave ex-Retro Studios alumni the idea to re-imagine Mega Man similar to Metroi...

Archie's Mega Man hits the 25-issue milestone! photo
Archie's Mega Man hits the 25-issue milestone!
by Tony Ponce

While Capcom continues to laze on announcing any proper plans for Mega Man, Archie Comics has been propping up the Blue Bomber as an important pillar of its comic book empire. Now with the arrival of issue #25 on newsstands today, Archie's Mega Man celebrates two successful years of publication. Amazing how time flies!

And what a milestone it is, smack dab in the middle of a massive crossover starring the boy robot and SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog. Following that, Mega will resume an already in-progress arc leading to long-awaited adaptations of Super Adventure Rockman and Mega Man 3. It's been too long since we've last seen the Blue Bomber in such top form.

None of this would have been possible without the support of the "Light Brigade," the endearing moniker the Archie staff applies to MM readers. Well, that's what editor Paul Kaminski says, but I think he's selling his own contributions short. Then there's writer Ian Flynn, who has expertly brought Mega's tech-driven universe to life. If anyone should be celebrating, it's these two gents!

Ultimate Armor Mega Man X figure in all its glory

Zero slices and dices in this Mega Man animation

3D CG fan animations can be a tricky thing. Fans don't have access to the incredible tools that pros use, thus their work obviously looks much, much, much rougher than what you'd see in theaters or even on TV. Getting around...
