Break Man Begins

Just as Blues himself is always one step ahead, Blues week is getting an early start.

I like Big O.

The Big O. In the giant mecha genre, it’s something of an acquired taste. But it’s been very inspirational. Rockman MegaMix author Hitoshi Ariga penned the manga adaptation, and Big O’s unique Megadeus style was the inspiration for “Big G” Illumina from Infinity Mijinion’s stage in Rockman X6. So if you’re interested in Big O […]

Strawberry Field-type Robots Forever

Man, it’s been a busy week for Mega Man news. Universe shows off its style and customization, R. Online reveals more setting art, Marvel vs Capcom 3 says “Yes!!” to Tron Bonne. Whew, what a ride! Next week is Blues week at the Lav. Enjoy your weekend!

There’s been a lot of questioning over the years about Sniper Joes, who designed them, and their relation to Blues. Part of that I’m sure is my fault, because I remember goofing it a few times a while back (I’m talking years and years ago, back when I thought a year or two of Japanese […]

The Birth of Duo

Duo made his first appearance in 1996 with the arcade title Rockman 2: The Power Fighters, in which he acted as a sort of promotional teaser for Rockman 8‘s release later that year. He was touted as a mysterious new character who was stylistically quite unlike most of the other characters in the Rockman universe, […]
