Thanks for the Tip

Time for another random slice of Retromags! We haven’t done this in a while. Today’s snippet comes from page 50 of EGM Issue #2 (June, 1989), back when they were the new kids on the magazine rack! And a bit green at that.

I want a foreign cellphone

Random thought: It’s a shame that Virtual Console re-releases of games don’t include some of the unique additions that their cellphone counterparts do. I know they’re supposed to be “unchanged” emulated versions or whatever, but I mean, how cool is stuff like that? Maybe they should add some cellphone virtual console support. I’m more for […]

Manic-Depressive Monday

Bad news kats and kittens, been too crazy busy to put together a post for today. Please enjoy this from MegaCats instead. We’ll make up for this lack of a proper Monday update later in the week.

Poll Results Are In

And the top three winners comprising over two thirds of the vote are: Legends, X, and Classic. Basically the three Mega Man series that already make up most of the Lav’s posts. Since Legends is the big winner, and since the Legends 3 Prototype Version is still coming up sometime in June, you can expect […]

Comic Cameos Continued

We’ve covered how Hideki Ishikawa’s original character W. Waltz has left her mark in various works, but what about some of the other characters? The politician/police chief character also made his own comic cameo in Hitoshi Ariga’s Rockman Megamix. Those of you who picked up Udon’s Mega Man Megamix 1 release might have noticed these […]

Just off the coast of Honshu today, Japan experienced its largest earthquake ever, and one of the largest in recorded history. After several days of smaller quakes, what is currently being called the 2011 Sendai earthquake and tsunami is believed to be an 8.9 in magnitude. Aftershocks and tsunamis are expected to rock regions of […]

The Sword and the Shield

I’m still kind of riding high on the Marvel vs Capcom 3 experience. Not near as much as I was into Tatsunoko vs Capcom last year, but that’s probably a good thing considering how debilitating that game became for me. Anyway, this will probably seem elementary to some of you, but perhaps there’s a few […]

Servbots South of the Border

Saw this on the art blog scene, thought it was pretty amazing. Pop culture work prints based on Día de los Muertos calaveras. Though not technically supposed to be a servbot, it can’t get much closer. You can catch some of the others here. Artistic sweetness.

The Weird, Wild & Whimsical World of “Rock & Rush”

The Capricious Rock & Rush is the comic series drawn by Capcom’s accidental manga artist, Sakura. These and his other works have appeared in various Capcom books, fan club magazines and promotional materials, and were even included as unlockable art in the gallery of the PS1 Rockman ports (soon to be available on the PSN!)
