Several days ago, during the Mega Man anniversary posting/site update, you might recall that there was a mention of a two-day $2 sale on two Mega Man titles, Mega Man X on Wii U Virtual Console and Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge on Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. You might also recall that certain members of this site were rather irritated that Canadians were being left out in the proverbial cold on this deal.Read More
Look, no one said you had to buy it, we just thought you might like to know. It's normally $4.99, so if you were waiting for an impulse price to try it yourself, then now is the time. And if you'd like this writer's honest opinion about it, then click here. It's not really that bad as iOS platformers go; it just falls short of bar set by its source material.

For those interested in the iOS version of Mega Man X, there is good news: Word through the grapevine is that to celebrate Independence Day, Capcom has lowered the price on three of its iOS games: Street Fighter IV Volt, Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting, and Mega Man X. The first was $6.99 while the other two were $4.99, but until July 4th, they are each 99 cents. As a result of the cut, Mega Man X has climbed the iOS sales charts, landing at #7 among the top paid Apps for the iPhone, and #10 for the iPad. As Protodude notes, "Quality port or not, that's pretty spectacular. I mean, do you know how long it's been since any X game made it on a top ten of any sort? Like, years. Yeah it's a bit sad but, hey, at least the series is getting some mainstream exposure." We could not have put it any better ourselves.
We previously covered the review posted on the iPhone game website Slide to Play. Noted within is that the game is of good quality as iPhone platformers go, though changes made to this version make it pale in comparison to the Super NES and PlayStation Portable versions. However, in the time since the review was published, additions have been made to the game, including an "Endless Mode."
You can find Mega Man X in the App Store here.
Appears the Black Friday bug has even bit UDON! This weekend you can get the incredibly amazing hardcover edition of Mega Man Tribute, with original cover by Hitoshi Ariga, for just $39.99 from UDON's online store. That's half off the regular price! As an owner of the hardback book myself, I can attest that it's a pretty awesome piece of work. Hundreds of pages of artwork and huge format, by a variety of artists (including some friends of the site); if you've been wanting this book still, then now is definitely a great time to pick it up!
Would also make a great holiday gift for the Mega Man fan or game art lover in your life. Just saying!

Not a bad deal if you're missing any of these downloads on your PS3. And if you do have them all, tell your friends!
Are you kidding me? You think ten bucks is too much for Mega Man 10? I'd have paid twice that! But if you're an Xbox 360 owner, and being a cheapskate is the only thing keeping you from battling Sheep Man, this is your time. Xbox Live's Deal of the Week is featuring Mega Man 10 for half off; just five measly bucks (400 points). In fact, a good handful of downloadable Capcom titles are available for half off in this week's deal. So seriously, just skip a trip to Jack in the Box today and grab one of the coolest Mega Man games to come out in recent years. Thunder Wool awaits you. 'Course, who am I kidding? Most of you have it, I'm sure! *pats loyal fanbase*

There is some good news for fans of the Blue Bomber who live down under, according to a tip we received from Tranceblade. He tells us that the only store to stock the localized EU version of Mega Man Zero Collection in Australia, JB Hi-FI, currently has the game on sale for $29.99 AUD. I realize that may sound like no big deal to those of you in the United States reading this, but foreign currency, inflation, etc.
The information comes from the PAL Gaming Network's Australian gaming bargains for the week of August 12th, which also contains a wealth of other offers and deals for those interested. So if you've been waiting for the right time to take the plunge into Mega Man Zero Collection, then now appears to be the time. Don't let it get away.
In honor of the announcement of Mega Man 10, and Mega Man's 22nd anniversary, the Capcom Store is cutting 10% from all their Mega Man goods for the next ten days. If you've been eying some Mega Man goods, or want to get a last minute gift for the Mega Man fan in your heart, here's a nice little deal. And what's that? What's with that banner? Why, could those be new Mega Man 10 Robot Masters!? Well, sort of. The image, and robots, are actually from MegaPhilX's Mega Man 10 fan game (which seems to be looking for a new name, now). Kind of an odd choice if you ask me, but also a little flattering, no?
Must admit though, I'm a little bummed those Mega Man 10 shirts aren't on the shop yet. I'd still pay full price for one, though!
