'Did You Know Gaming?' Tackles Mega Man Legends

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!

We're Getting Mega Man Sunglasses. Sunglasses.

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.

Second Mega Man Legacy Collection Steam Patch Live

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.

Thanks, Saikyo!
