Retro Review: Mega Man 2 (NES)

Release Date: December 24th, 1988 Developer: Capcom Co., Ltd. Publisher: Capcom Co., Ltd. When I saw the announcement that Capcom was resurrecting the Mega Man franchise for the Blue Bomber’s 30th Anniversary, you bet I was aware. As a result of the news, I scrapped the Retro Review I was working on and started this one. Simultaneously, I worked on my write-up for the Mega Man 11 announcement. I w...[Read More]

Mega Man 11 Announced

I feel like I was specifically targeted. Like, Capcom wanted me to talk about a video game they were hyping up. They didn’t tell me directly, but they got me at my soft spot. It would not normally be a big deal, except that the game they decided to announce was guaranteed to get a response from me. Mega Man 11. On the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Fuck! Capcom’s been on my shit...[Read More]

Never Played: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

A fun game wrapped around a bitter shell I haven’t revisited this series in a while. Why not jump in with a recent game I’ve wanted to play but refused to buy yet.

In addition to getting to play the latest entry in Capcom’s Versus series, he was excited...[Read More]

Personal Top 5 – Fighting Games

Round 1: FIGHT! It’s been a great couple of years for fighting game fans like me. I’ve been able to gorge myself on quite a few titles. Some have been pretty awesome (Tekken 7 and Injustice 2); one has been absolute balls (Street Fighter V). On the horizon, I have Dragonball FighterZ and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (i.e. what the original game should have been out of the gate…no, I’m not bitt...[Read More]

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced

Game will finally receive Arcade Mode Back when Street Fighter V launched in 2016, I was conflicted. Part of me was happy that the series that sparked my love for the competitive fighter was entering a new era. The other part of me lambasted the newest entry as a piece of garbage. My reasoning for the hate was that the game was only half of a game. Modes that were considered essential for a fighti...[Read More]

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition Unboxing

Infinitely Disappointed Back during PlayStation Experience 2016, Capcom announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. I’m not a major fighting game fanatic, but I’ve enjoyed playing previous games in the series. So I was looking forward to the game.

Retro Game Oddities: Street Fighter “Sequels”

Ha-WHO-ken! (This is a new series that will look at odd dealings in video games. Hopefully, this will be a weekly series. Considering who’s writing it, however, that remains to be seen!) Way back in 1987, Capcom released Street Fighter in the arcades. I’ve spoken about the game before. Short version: it isn’t all that hot. Slightly longer version: player one is Ryu only, player two is Ken on...[Read More]
