Gamers everywhere felt the sting of Capcom's announcement of the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 late Monday night. I posted my reaction here the following day (which itself garnered quite a reaction-- thank you all for that), and many of you have not been at all shy about leaving your own thoughts on the matter, as well as that of no inclusion of a Mega Man in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, in the comments of the many stories we have posted throughout the week. And still others have reacted in their own way, by posting to their blogs, recording YouTube videos, and even creating articles and features on major video game websites. So here, for your convenience, is a round-up of what we have seen thus far. Do note that some of these sites may have Not Safe For Work content, so be sure to proceed with caution.
Oh, and I hope you will appreciate that with the sheer number of pieces people have created, sent in, etc. (with more to come, no doubt) that we simply cannot give all of them dedicated articles. Feel free to send more our way, though, and we can add to the list. Who knows? Maybe Capcom will take greater notice of them all if they can all be found in one place?
