Getting Glitchy with Mega Man 2

Mega Man 3 is a game well known for its glitches, but how many do you know from Mega Man 2? Along with a variety of other NES glitches, Challenger Approaching has cataloged ten of these on video for all of us to see. What's more, they note that these work in all three versions of Mega Man Anniversary Collection, too!

...infinite Metal Blades? Now we're just playing God here; these are forces beyond our understanding, forces no man-- Mega or otherwise-- were meant to control.

Thanks for the tip, Bey-Heart!

ScrewAttack Adds Mega Man: The Power Battle to Their Video Game Vault

The folks over at ScrewAttack have honored the Blue Bomber (while simultaneously taking a jab or two at Capcom in the process) by adding Mega Man: The Power Battle to their Video Game Vault...

...or is it an honor? It seems that Stuttering Craig isn't a huge fan of the game for more than ten seconds at a time, as he finds the game too easy for a quarter-munching arcade game.

Is the game too easy? Personally, we've lost a few lives here and there while playing... but then, that's mostly been on stuff like the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, where you have unlimited credits and no one is counting, anyway.

Ah, well... we prefer the sequel, anyway.

Thanks to RyanThunder for the tip!

When is a Beta Not a Beta?

When the game is never released, unfortunately. Such was the sad eventuality which befell Mega Man Anniversary Collection, the Game Boy Advance game which had been formerly known as Mega Man Mania before an ironic change to accommodate a celebration it would never be a part of.

The following video from Game Informer shows footage of the colorized version of the Game Boy Mega Man titles in all their unreleased glory.

Truth be told, between the two collections (and not counting X), this was the one I was most looking forward to, given that the Game Boy games were a bit more rare than their NES/Super NES/PlayStation counterparts. Hopefully someday Capcom will "find the source code" (I have my own theory about that, but it can wait for another time) and give these worthwhile titles, considered by some to be superior to their technologically superior NES cousins, another chance at life.

And by the time that happens, maybe they should just toss in Mega Man Xtreme and its sequel as well.
