The 2.5 co-op Mega Man fan game goes beta


10:00 AM on 11.04.2013



I was just playing Mega Man 10 the other day, and it's even better than I remembered. That Wily Castle really knows how to bring it all together. Still, I can see why many were disappointed with how "same-y" it felt at release. They saw Mega Man and Proto Man together and assumed we'd get co-op. They thought wrong. They saw the exact same "retro" art direction from Mega Man 9, and it didn't feel retro anymore. Instead, it felt uninspired. Why couldn't have Capcom given us something a little more new while reveling in looking old?

As seems to be the way of things these days, the fans have stepped up where Capcom has fallen. The long-awaited Mega Man 2.5D finally has a Beta, using themes and characters from Mega Man 3's Shadow Man stage for a co-op only, Super Paper Mario-inspired, Mega Man extravaganza. A single player Beta is promised for the near future, so check the official site for updates. There's also a poll to determine what character we get next. Vote Wood Man if you know what's good for you.

Be sure and pick it up as soon as possible on that date just in case something happens with Capcom!more

Video: Dragon Ball Online fan remake happening, and Xenoverse still looks like a remake

A group of Dragon Ball Online fans, who happen to also be developers, are translating the game into English and re-releasing it as Dragon Ball Online: Revelations. Meanwhile, we've got more screenshots of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a game which I still firmly believe to be an adaptation of Dragon Ball Online.more

Retro Game Challenge 2 fan translation almost complete

The old rule of thumb was that fan translations never get picked by the game's original developer or publisher, but Stiens;Gate and Ys: The Oath of Felghana proved differently. I hope that Retro Game Challenge 2 (known as Ga...more
