The very excellent Boss Fight Books series is coming back for a third season! This time around, there's going to be an entire book devoted to the development history of Mega Man 3. Written by Salvatore Pane, the book explores the ins-and-outs of the divisive sequel and why we're so obsessed with it after all these years.

I'd wager a good few of you will learn something new from Did You Know Gaming's recent Mega Man Legends feature. Here, the crew looks at some of the more obscure MML factoids; for example, did you know the story originally featured a 4-sided love triangle? (err, love square?). Interesting stuff, especially if you're new to the series.
Speaking personally, I'm honored to be featured in this episode!

Megacocorock's 8-bit version of Mega Man Star Force has not only been revived but completed as well! In true Megacocorock fashion, it's not available to the public. But hey, don't let that stop you from admiring some footage. Enjoy!

I'll let the Entertainment Earth product description speak for itself: "Become the Blue Bomber with these Mega Man Helmet Sun-Staches! Save the day with these fantastic glasses featuring the iconic helmet of Mega Man. Join the fight against Dr. Wily with these Mega Man Helmet Sun-Staches."
I don't know what's worse: the fact these will soon exist OR the criminally missed opportunity for Proto Man shades. C'mon, people.

Heads up: a second but very small patch for Mega Man Legacy Collection went live on Steam yesterday. According to the change log, it fixes "an issue which caused text and some textures to render as solid blocks of color." This minor annoyance is not an issue on home consoles, so no worries there.
Hopefully Capcom will roll out similar fixes over time for some of the other prevalent issues on PC. While the March update was a welcome addition, many users continue to cite performance issues.
