Rockman Xover Reaches Top 3 on iTunes

Just days after releasing, Rockman Xover has achieved third place on iTunes' Top Free Apps. While that's not necessarily a feat in itself, the bigger news might come from it being #63 on iTunes' Top Grossing Apps and climbing, ahead of Beeline's (Capcom's mobile subsidiary) and Capcom's own mobile games. That's pretty good for a non-GREE and non-Mobage game. What's more, of the 1,136 ratings, 889 of them are five star reviews. Most of them are admittedly referral codes, but that's still at least 889 people who have the game and care enough to rate it and publicize their active participation.

From the little I've seen played of the game, it's actually a huge step up from most Mobage games we've seen hit North America. This could definitely tear me away from my daily Tiny Tower sessions.

We are ROCK-MEN! Available on iTunes, but...

Only in Japan. The album is available on iTunes for download for ¥1,800, or ¥150 per track. But unless you have a Japanese account, you won't even be able to find it. Of course, you can go ahead and change your iTunes account's region to Japan, and then find it by searching "We are ROCK-MEN." However, unless you have a credit card registered in Japan, you still won't be able to buy the music. But in the above link you can at least listen to samples, which range from 30 seconds to 1:30.

Way to go, Apple. Really not seeing what's so great about this system of yours.

Mega Man 2 iTunes Sale

Capcom has once again put Mega Man II on sale at a low $0.99 for a limited time on iTunes.  For those of you who haven't followed the game's evolution, it was given quite a few free updates since its relatively lackluster release. Among the most notable: It now has a decent NES-styled control scheme in landscape mode and Classic Mode with regular game physics -as opposed to extremely floaty ones from the original release- is also available.  If those changes tickle your fancy, be sure to take advantage of this sale.
