I am admittedly a little hesitant to promote my own work on here, which is why I'm talking about this article I did for 1UP.com two days after it was posted. Plus, today's updates are running dry and I have other things demanding my attention, so this was quick, too. Anyway, my latest article for 1UP.com is "The Real Science of Mega Man," which looks at some of the actual scientific theory and realities the world predicted before this science fiction video game came around, or those which have since arisen. Granted, some of these might be old hat to you if you've been following us for a while, but keep in mind too that this was written for a different audience (and there are a couple of things we haven't touched on here as well).
If you like this one (and perhaps even if you don't), be sure to check out the full cover story, "1UP's Science Week." There are several other stories which look at the scientific aspects of video games, including another I wrote called "Mysticism vs. Science in Metroid." I hope you enjoy it!
