Mega Man has taken a lot of hits in the last ten years: Mega Man 10 came out in 2010; Mega Man X8, came out in 2004 and ended with a cliffhanger; and the highly requested Mega Man Legends 3 was cancelled in 2011. There hasn’t really been a lot to excite Mega Man fans recently (Except for this gem). To make matters worse, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom in October 2010. It seemed like we might never see another amazing Mega Man game again.

We were wrong. Ish.

Honestly, I am in awe of the talent of some people out there in the world. Some of the creations in Art Academy on the 3DS and Wii U are utterly breathtaking. And I’m even more jealous of people who can manipulate music creation software because I don’t really have a musical bone in my body (which is why I like games like Rock Band that let me pretend I do).

So I was naturally super-impressed by this incredible recreation of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” generated in Mario Paint! It’s really fantastic, and then when the dogs and cats enter the picture, it becomes legendary. Enjoy!

Kingdom Hearts ReMIX Launches In True Disney Style

If you’re a Kingdom Hearts fan who lives near Disneyland in California, you’re in luck, because Square Enix has announced a very special launch event for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX! Naturally, it’s going to be held in a Disney location, specifically the Downtown Disney District at 1313 South Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim, CA, and will start at 12:00 pm on Sunday, September 8 and run until 6:00 pm.

Of course, for the whole six hours, you can enjoy demos of the game, take photos in the themed photo booth, enjoy entertainment from Radio Disney, and be a part of the “ReMIX The History Of Kingdom Hearts” interactive game-themed mural (whatever the heck that is!) But you might want to get there a littie more on the early side because Squeenix is also going to be giving away posters, T-shirts and merchandise signed by Kingdom Hearts franchise director Tetsuya Nomura. Limited quantities of the PS3 exclusive (which include the 24-page art book) will also be sold at the event two days before it goes on sale everywhere else, and you’ll get a limited edition collectible pin with purchase. You can visit the Facebook event page for more details.

This post will have some light spoilers for one of the characters in The Last of Us, but nothing about the ending or any main plot points.

Hey, did you know there’s a gay character in The Last of Us? I didn’t, until I got an email about it. I had just started playing the game, which at that point I found a little boring and samey, and I was pretty surprised by the news. I asked my straight friend about it, and he had no idea who I was talking about.

I kept playing, mainly to get through the game so I could have a conversation about it. And then I – after what seemed like an eternity – made it out of Boston and into the meat of the game. That’s where I met Bill.

PAX Honesty Time: Pulling Dickwolves Merchandise Was “A Mistake”

The 2013 Penny Arcade Expo took place this past weekend! And, as fate would have it, there is once again controversy surrounding Mike Krahulik as he fires another bullet into the Penny Arcade Dickwolves timeline.

For those not up-to-speed with the debacle: back in 2010, Mike and Jerry, the creators of Penny Arcade, posted a comic called “The Sixth Slave”, featuring a character talking about “dickwolves” and some grim allusions to rape in an attempt at “dark humour” (trigger warning for discussions of rape: “The Sixth Slave“). And ever since, they’ve been attempting to defend and justify their comic – most significantly by creating women’s T-Shirts with a “dickwolves” logo on the front, which was pulled almost two months later. And now, the controversy has been reignited – surrounded by a number of other controversies that highlight problems with Penny Arcade’s management, including Mike Krahulik’s recent transphobic comments.

I, like everyone else, was surprised by Nintendo’s release of the 2DS handheld system. Of course, being one of the only people to actually enjoy the 3D effects, the 2DS isn’t for me, but I get where they’re coming from. And it’s not exactly unusual for Nintendo to release a variation on one of their portables. Not that it matters at all, because I am now the proud owner of Sony’s portable system, now that the price has jumped. But what do I think of it? I’ll share my initial impressions after the jump!
