Mega Man X Brought to Life Through Chalk!
 By Mac | 15 October 2014 - 04:09 AM


Mind-bending chalk art illusions have been a consistently impressive form of art found on sidewalks and other such flat canvases. The individuals who create such works of art are extremely talented and masters of perspective. This one is certainly no exception. A beautifully chalked and colored Mega Man X is brought to life through artist Chris' skill. Good stuff! Be sure to check out his other videos for more awe-inspiring creations!

"Mizuno Mega Man X" Figure a Reality

Remember back in April on that day of Fools? An amazing Mega Man X figure was teased in the form of a piece of artwork by Keisuke Mizuno. With it was a spec sheet detailing the figure, but something seemed fishy. Some of the specifications were a bit farfetched. It turned out to be nothing but an elaborate April Fools day ruse...or was it?

According to Protodude's Rockman Corner, that very figure is actually happening. It's going to be a real, tangible thing, and I am not displeased. You may remember back in June where Protodude was polling the opinions of the people towards an unprecedented new Mega Man X figure. Well, wouldn't you know? Through the voice of the masses, the figure we once thought was a farce; a chuckle in the offices of Capcom, was set in motion.

I was salivating over the gorgeous artwork in all its technological splendor, but now we have physical prototype builds of the figure that look outstanding (I can't wait to see it color!) Furthermore, we have an accurate spec sheet this time!

  • 15cm in height, about the same as the D-Arts/Figuarts Mega Man figures.
  • Diecast armor on the chest, shins, and feet.
  • 20 points of articulation.
  • LED functional X-Buster that can be attached to either arm.
  • 2 additional sets of hands in a fist and splayed formation.
  • Extra "shouting" faceplate.
  • Opened and closed swappable back thrusters.
  • Attachable blast effect accessory for the X-Buster.
  • Tentative March/April 2015 release.
  • Produced by TruForce Collectables.
  • Bluefin distributing in North America.
  • Colored prototype will be on display in February at the New York Toy Fare.
  • Price is TBA.

Yes, yes, I know. Some of you may be bellyaching that it's just another figure and I get you, but this seems to be a larger project than what we've received before and it shouldn't be dismissed so easily. The extra mile seems to be the route taken.

Like many projects these days, there will be a Kickstarter forthcoming in which to fund the figure's production. As one would expect, there will be exclusive backer rewards. Keep an eye on TruForce's Facebook or Twitter for updates on the matter, and of course, check back here or at Protodude's for the full scoop!

Mega Man X5 Now on NA PlayStation Store

After Mega Man X4 released just six days ago on the North American PSN, it's Mega Man X5's turn in the spotlight! You can download it for the same 5.99 price tag as its predecessor for play on your PS3 and Vita all the same. I saw some images across the net of X4 running on the Vita and it looks delightful. Fits like a glove! I'm sure X5 will follow suit. As for X6, it's still waiting for its time to shine. I'm sure it's only a matter of time, but there's also legal and licensing hurdles to jump over before older titles can re-emerge. I'm sure the Japanese opening and ending themes are part of the obstacle course.

Ehh, what are ya gonna do? Well, enjoy rediscovering X4 and X5, guys! For those that have never played them; get to it!

Some thought it would never come. Some believed all was lost. They should have known never to doubt me because clearly, they were mistaken. The end is finally upon us. The ultimate, decisive clash between the top four victorious bodies begins this instant. A lot of time has passed since the previous round of the contest, but I wasn't about to let it slide. A king must be crowned! Or maybe an Emperor? Heh heh heh...the choice is yours, my little human helpers. It always has been, and you've come this far! Don't let me down now.

RULES

This will be a four way match. Each person is to submit (1) vote for their body of choice. You may share this contest socially for others to cast a vote. No cheating or boosting of votes will be tolerated(but I do appreciate the mischevious thought)! This final round of my body contest will proceed with a duration of (2) weeks (depending on feedback, this number may increase). Lastly, please enjoy this as much as I am!

"Give me a good fight, like you always do!"

Mega Man X3 Now on Wii U Virtual Console!
 By Mac | 29 August 2014 - 03:07 AM

The day has finally arrived! Mega Man X3 is now on Nintendo's Wii U Virtual Console. For many a moon, fans have longed for likes of X3 and Mega Man 7 (a later release) for digital download. Seeing is how those two games are coveted cartridges, availability is likely a reason. That and the fact that they're exquisite gems that shouldn't be overlooked. So boot up the shop and commence purchase! It'll run you .99 and is worth every penny, if you ask me. If you haven't experienced X3 before then it's a must.

Thus concludes "Mega August". More Mega Man titles will be made available on Virtual Console soon (and PSN!)

X4 & X5 Coming to North American PSN

UPDATE: Mega Man X4 is now available for 5.99 on PSN!

What a pleasant surprise! Capcom has announced that Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X5 are on their way to becoming PSOne Classics on the PlayStation Store. You won't have to wait long to download them either, as X4 is slated for release next week on September 2nd, with X5 following a week later on September 9th. Nice! The PlayStation Store has been long overdue for a refreshing shot of Mega Man X. I imagine X6 will eventually find its way on there as well. Maybe we'll even see X7 and X8 among their PS2 lineup? Remember still, that X3 is to be released on Nintendo's Wii U Virtual Console shortly! I'm lovin' this influX of X.

The Sigma Body Contest Shall Conclude!

As you might have surmised by now, this website has been experiencing some, how should I say, irregularities? Tell me, who do you think could've been the culprit behind the malfuctions? If you're thinking what I'm inferring, then congratulations; you're one of the worthy ones. As you can see, the site is operational again. I've decided to show a little mercy on this resilient congregation and in return, I decree that the Sigma Body Contest, my contest, finally be finished! This system has become a bit stifling, but once my new body has been chosen, I'll have a new vessel to inhabit!

Stay tuned, my subjects...530185_385013828219354_1164481384_n.jpg?

Sigma Gameplay in Dead Rising 3 DLC
 By Sigma | 13 June 2014 - 07:22 PM

Would you like to know what I've been up to? Just take a look at the footage above! Well, almost me. Just some human poser using my armor and abilities and...face. Albeit a costume, I'm deadly as ever. The video shows my beam scythe in action, as well as my searing eye lasers. This guy also appears to execute a devastating "Sigma Crusher" attack. Flattering, but I am no M. Bison. Psycho Powers or not, he is but a mere human!

So, if any of my adoring underlings wish to play as theirs truly (or close to it), then download Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha on this "Xbox Live" interface!
Full Mega Man Final Smash Sequence Shown!
 By Mac | 11 June 2014 - 04:03 AM
UPDATE: Click here to watch this amazing moment seen from inside the audience! Such resounding affection for Mega Man. *tear*

At the Super Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament, contender Hugo "HugS" Gonzales selected the Blue Bomber as his fighter. After that amazing Final Smash reveal a couple months back, it goes without saying everyone was chomping at the bit to see just how it looks and works in-game. Round after round, he did battle with the super fighting robot, but there was one thing he always failed to do. That is, capture the damn Smash Ball! However, the overwhelming fan response kept bringing HugS and Mega Man back as a "fan favorite" and eventually, during the final moments of a later round, the only Smash Ball to appear in the match became his. At last, the time had come, and the place erupted with applause and excitement.

Although HugS didn't win that round, following the match, almost everyone in the audience flipped their fan favorite "character cards" to Mega Man. Again, he was pushed through to the next round and even though HugS and Mega didn't ultimately win the tournament, it was clear that this suspenseful moment of "revealing" the full Final Smash sequence was a satisfying reward in itself.
Mega Man E3 '14 News & Updates
 By Mac | 09 June 2014 - 10:51 PM
E3 is now upon us and with it, an almost overwhelming amount of video game information and even new game reveals. This is the industry's big day, and while we all have our own varying points of interest, we all share the same hope that something Mega this way comes. Below we'll cover all relative information shown thus far.

First up, during Microsoft's Xbox Conference, Capcom revealed a new add-on for Dead Rising 3 called "Super Ultra Dead Rising 3’ Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α". They sure covered all bases with that name, but what does such a name entail? Arcade style, four player co-op, cosplaying action of course! In this DLC, you'll be able to play as any of the Dead Rising protaganists, including Frank and Chuck from the first and second games respectively, cosplaying as a selection of Capcom characters and apparently, using some of their unique abilities! One such costume we know of is of, wait for it...

...Sigma! Sporting his X4 duds complete with beam scythe. You'll get to do some reaping with it, as well as burning some undead with his eye lasers. While there might be more Mega Man costumes to wear, there's certainly some Mega Man inspired power ups and in-game "advertisements", such as the Mega Man X4 logo. Heck, even the official trailer has a Mega Man X remix in it.

Capcom Unity has announced that there will be a slew of Capcom titles coming to Nintendo's Wii U Virtual Console. Some will be released soon and some, later, but there will be TEN Mega Man games among the titles. Those games include,

  • Mega Man 5 (NES)
  • Mega Man 6 (NES)
  • Mega Man 7
  • Mega Man X3
  • Mega Man Zero
  • Mega Man Zero 2
  • Mega Man Battle Network
  • Mega Man Battle Network 2
  • Mega Man Battle Network 3 (Blue & White)
  • Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge
Yes, you read correctly, Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X3 are finally being released on Virtual Console! They've been the oft-requested titles, and now they're on their way. The games that will be released a bit later are Zero 2, Battle Network 2, and Battle Network 3, but that's okay! Man, they don't have much left to release. Could this signify some new material henceforth? Wishful thinking of course, but you have to wonder. Regardless, this is some exciting news for those out there who haven't played all these awesome games.

That's all to speak of for now, but if anything else is shown, it'll definitely be covered here!
