Video game characters are like all celebrities, meaning some of them have skeletons in the closet. Though no one in this category is as full as Mega Man's.

From the cancellation of Legend 3, to that PSP port of the very first game with the somewhat racist boss, the list is long. But at the very top has to be box art for the aforementioned NES debut, which many firmly believe to be the worst cover of all time.

Who the heck is that guy and what business does he have, parading around as Mega Man? It doesn't matter, because at long last, the real thing is finally here to get the answers we've all been asking for. Maybe.

streetfighters

This past Friday we highlighted a 30 minute long documentary that details Final Fantasy's colorful history. Well, time for something along those same lines.

I Am Street Fighter celebrates the franchise's quarter century long legacy. Instead of just hearing from those who helped make the games (though they are included), the concentration is instead those who were impacted by their aftermath the most. Everyone from professional game players to artists, and virtually everyone in between.

A couple months back, for everyone headed to San Diego Comic Con, we made sure to mentionMM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works as a must get.

Well, UDON's massive tribute tome to all things Mega Man will soon be released into the wild. I got the chance to check a copy out, with UDON's Director of Marketing Chris Butcher pointing out highlights along the way.

There are plenty of YouTube channels you might want to be aware of, enough to maybe to even subscribe. And the one that's simply titled Lore should definitely be at the top of your list.

residentevil6

Every single Resident Evil fan reading this is well aware of what a mess part 6 was. It was designed as a game that basically "had it all", meaning it would contain facets that would appeal to the different kinds of RE players out there.

But the final product was an overwhelming, bloated train-wreck that made no one happy, most especially the longtime fans, who felt the most disenfranchised. Well, according to a recent interview, it would seem that the message has been heard loud and clear.

monsterhunter4

Capcom has just unveiled the latest trailer for "Monster Hunter 4." And it looks to be the greatest thing ever, at least to those into Monster Hunter. Unfortunately, the game is still only slated for Japan. Which is just as well, since that's apparently where all its fan are located.

With Duckstales Remastered's release rapidly approaching (it arrives August 13th on PlayStation Network, the Nintendo eShop, and Steam, with the XBLA version showing up on September 11), Capcom has released another "Duckumentary", this one covering the one aspect of the revamp that many diehard fans of the NES original are most interested in: the music.

Capcom of Japan has just announced their latest "Street Fighter" cross over, in which Ryu and company goes against pretty much everyone under the publisher's umbrella. Hence the title "Street Fighter X All Capcom."

Very little is known at the moment. Though feel free to poke around the official website, which is chock full of Capcom personalities, who are all presumably featured characters.

The idea of Batsu Ichimonji (from Rival Schools: United By Fate) facing off against Sissel (from Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective) is enough to make any Capcom diehard's head explode, but there might be zero cause for celebration in the end.

legends3

Mega Man fans these days all feel like an unwanted child. For years they've stood by Capcom, but for years, Capcom has not stood by them.

Highlights as it pertains to the blue bomber's career in recent years include being reduced to a total joke character in Street Fighter X Tekken, and a Japan only social title designed to celebrate his 25th birthday that everyone on this side of the ocean is frankly glad they're not getting.

And that's pretty much it, a sad state of affairs for the guy that put Capcom on the map, well before Street Fighter and Resident Evil entered the picture. Though most diehard fans saw the writing on the wall years ago, when the much anticipated Mega Man Legends 3 was cancelled. Which came out of nowhere, almost immediately after the dream project was finally okayed.
