NES Box Art: Mega Man
- It’s Mega Man versus the powerful leaders and fighting forces of Monsteropolis - that strange multi-layered land of robot-like humanoids created by the wrongly-performed experiments with human beings by Dr. Wily.
- Mega Man - the chosen defender of the human race. For he dares to single-handedly penetrate Monsteropolis’ seven separate societies to stop the rapid expansion of strange misrepresentations of humans.
- Mega Man’s goal is monumental. He must infiltrate seven separate heavily-guarded empires. By himself, he must break down and destroy the following empire leaders: Cutman, Gutsman, Iceman, Bombman, Fireman, Elecman, and Dr. Wily.

(Late) Post E3 Impressions - DuckTales
Produced by the creator of “Ghosts ‘n Goblins”, character designs by the creator of Mega Man, and started a relationship between Capcom and Disney that would give us “Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers” and “Goof Troop” - DuckTales has a special place in my (as well as many other retro gamers) hearts and help show great games with great teams are still fun even after all these years.
HD remakes on older games doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be good - the remake of Double Dragon II on XBLA was absolutely awful. Which made me concerned as Capcom wasn’t content with simply updating the graphics - there are a bunch of new boss mechanics, new levels, and even voice acting brought into the levels (most notably the venerable Alan Young reprising his role as Scrooge McDuck).
However after playing it on the show floor of E3 I’m pretty happy to say I’m not worried about this one at all.
