The Weekend Hotness: Spiked-Wall Man

Dr. Wily finally defeats Mega Man. It’s a proud day for Wily until Zero makes an appearance. The best part is right after the explosion, as it’s probably the last thing you’d expect to happen.

The first official HAWP T-shirt is on sale, Jim talks about games that are fun watching other people play, GameStops to stop accepting all Xbox trade-ins, Paul Robertson has a brand new video and plenty more happened over the weekend.
