It's been over five years since Mega Man Legends 3 was canceled

Mega Man -- the fanbase that never stops dreaming. No matter what, even with a complete lack of proper releases, we never give up hope. I still look back at my collection after grabbing a game to play out of it weekly and think -- "one day....   read

I can't stop listening to this Mega Man 2 banjo cover

There was something about the music in classic Mega Man games. Whether it was the riffing of some classic rock songs or pure sparks of originality, it's one of the most covered and celebrated franchises of all time musically. That incl...   read

Ha, ThinkGeek is doing a Proto Man Buster replica too

Back in 2014, ThinkGeek unleashed a Mega Buster replica out into the world for $80, that has since been cut to $50. It was a little to silly and unwieldy for my tastes, but I imagine someone's son or daughter is having the time of their lif...   read

The new Mega Man cartoon looks uh, well you'll see

After several months of waiting the Mega Man Badge Arcade collection comes west
