Fictional and Futuristic

In December of 2007 Capcom put out a duo of arranged soundtrack albums for Rockman’s 20th anniversary. The Techno Arrange album contained the following track, a remixed version of Elec Man’s theme featuring a female computerized voice delivering a speech on Rockman’s origin at around the 1:45 mark. It is rather difficult to make out […]

Spring is here

Well spring has sprung, but I wouldn’t know it from looking out my window. There’s more snow outside right now as I’m writing this than I’ve seen during the entirety of this winter. At least I can gaze at this picture and pretend the seasons have cycled on. From the 2012 Capcom Girls Calendar, here’s […]

25 Days of Rockman

In honor of Rockman’s 25th birthday, I’m attempting something I’ve never managed to do in the past: 25 posts. IN A ROW. One for each year of Rockman’s existence.

Yes, I OS: A Confession

I have a confession to make: I don’t hate the Mega Man X iOS port. Yes, you read that right. I just don’t. Matter of fact, I don’t think it’s bad at all. It’s not the cheap cash-in mess of a game that it tends to be labeled as, if you ask me. Why do […]

For a rainy day

Chances are I’ll be losing power before long, thanks to a certain hurricane. What will I do without electricity? (Besides continue to not update this blog?) I’m not sure, but maybe I’ll play a little Rockman. This is the Rockman Collection Box 20. Yes, the same one that Rockman Diorama World was advertising, and also […]

Happy Halloween!

Come on guys, no cheating!
