It’s been a struggle finding the motivation to get a proper post done, with all that’s been going on lately in Mega Man. I know what’s what you’re here for, so I apologize for not having more to give you right now. While I try to get my act together, here’s some other stuff that’s been going on lately.
First, while I expect that anyone who frequents my blog already knows about these things, I added some links towards reinstating the Legends 3 Project in my sidebar menu over to the right, just in case. I’ve been positively impressed by the fan outpouring and the support the title has received since cancellation… I can’t help but wonder whether if this sort of intervention had happened sooner, the game would still be under production. Sites like the Mega Man Network, Protodude’s Rockman Corner and Mega Man Legends Station have poured on their support since the very start, but never seemed to achieve such high numbers or notoriety as has been done in these past few days. I doubt many of us fans really suspected how fragile the situation was before the cancellation happened. I know I didn’t realize (or just couldn’t let myself believe it). Will any of it be enough to save Legends 3? I don’t know the answer, but in the meantime just joining the cause eases one’s sense of hopelessness.
There’s been a lot of rumors flying around the Mega Man community these past few days, like Capcom supposedly throwing Mega Man fans out of Comic Con, and the musical group the Protomen getting a Cease & Desist order from Capcom lawyers. Though both have rung strongly false, it seems these things are more prone to being believable when the fan community is already agitated like it is. I urge people to be cautious about believing everything they hear, so that they don’t wind up being the ones getting trolled.
Other news, the Mega Man Network and a few of its long-time affiliates are planning to host another panel at Otakon this weekend. Even though it’s being held practically in my backyard, it looks like I won’t be able to attend yet again. But, for those who can, you’ll find some useful information here. It sounds like a lot of fun, so I’d recommend getting in on it if you can.
E-Can Factory, my latest affiliate, just got done moving to a new host. It’s full of thoughtful trivia and interesting things from the Japanese side of Rockman fandom. Check it out if you haven’t already. If you like this blog, I’ll bet you’ll enjoy that one too.
That’s all for now. I’ll try to have some more substantial updates here soon. Thanks for reading.
