  •  Japan’s getting ALL the VC Megaman love. Meanwhile, we’re still stuck waiting around for Megaman II…

    I really hope third parties start putting more of their classics on VC. Capcom made too many good handheld games to only have 3 available.

    ……………after Rockman Xover my heart is broken.

  • By the love of Signas, how do I wish to see a Siliconera headline that has the words “Megaman” and “new” mixed up. It would really make one of the best gamer days of my adulthood.
