Talking Mega Man in Mega Visions

As I alluded to a while back, I've written a couple of reviews to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mega Man for the digital Mega Visions magazine. And at long last, that new issue is finally out!

No, contrary to what the name might have you believe, it's not a magazine all about Mega Man, but rather a magazine which celebrates all things SEGA (such as the Mega Drive, of course). As such, the two games I chose to look at are two of those exclusive to SEGA's run in the console business.

The first game I looked at? Well, what better way to celebrate three decades of the Blue Bomber through a SEGA lens than to check out Mega Man: The Wily Wars from the SEGA Genesis? I'd checked out the game before, mostly dabbling and focusing on the new Wily Tower content, but this time I played every game from top to bottom to deliver a final verdict.

Next, as the issue's primary theme was the celebration of the SEGA Dreamcast, I also took a look at one of Mega Man's exclusive appearances on the console in Cannon Spike. Mega Man is but one of an ensemble cast, and while this one is an old favorite of mine, does it hold up?

That's not all I've written for the 'zine, though, as I also checked out Power Stone, Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo Switch, and recalled the day when SEGA left the hardware business in "Confessions of a Nintendo Fan." You can see what else is in store for you by taking a look at the preview here.

And if you decide to pick up the issue (for which I'll kindly thank you if you do), you can find it in the following digital storefronts:

The app is free, while each issue (bar the sample "Zero" issue) costs $3.99 USD. Or, you can go the 6-issue (one year, bi-monthly) subscription route for $19.99 USD, which is like getting one issue free!
