Rockman DASH 3 Finally Happening? A Dancing Queen Says It's Possible

Now this is what I call a rumor! According to "dancing queen" (who claims to have sources in high places), Capcom is currently working on a concept for DASH 3 on Wii:

"Regarding MegaMan on Wii, kind of a difficult subject to broach. My contacts have been very quiet it regarding a full-scale Mega Man Legends 3. There's some concepting going on regarding a MML3 on Wii, but nothing solid yet. I should mention I am commenting on retail games."

If this rumor holds some truth, it appears we might end up having two Wii titles coming down the pipe, the rumored "shovelware title" (possibly Scramble Battle) and the long awaited DASH 3.

Will 2008 finally be the year DASH will make it's triumphant return? God I hope so

Rockman's Rocket Christmas...In English!

Of all the Japanese cell phone exclusives, we get a localized version of "Rockman's Rocket Christmas." Please, why couldn't it have been "Rockman DASH: Five Island Adventure?"

Licensed by Capcom USA and distributed by "Breakpoint Games", Rocket Christmas somehow managed to get past our radar. Nevertheless, I managed to purchase this odd game.

RMRC plays in good old 2D fashion in which Rockman must float his way around various obstacles to delivery presents to children who, miraculously, able to breath in the vacuum of space.

If you're interested in playing this very bizarre title, pick it up for a small fee here

Rockman Wii: Nothing But Shovelware (Crap)

"Shovelware: Derogatory computer jargon term that refers to software noted more for the quantity of what is included than for the quality or usefulness. The metaphor implies that the creators chose the content material indiscriminately, as if with a shovel, rather than hand-picking quality works."

This definition is what the enigmatic "Surfergirl" used to describe the mysterious Wii Rockman title.

Unlike recent high quality Rockman games as of late, (Rockman Rockman, Irregular Hunter X) the Wii Rockman apparently lacks quality, joining the ranks of the hundreds of low quality third party games on Wii. Wonderful.

ZX Advent: 10,000 Units Away From Sequel

ZXA is almost at it's goal to reach the 100,000 sales mark before the end of the fiscal year.
To guarantee ourselves a third entry, ZXA needs to pull in an extra 10,000 units, but sales have been in a decline as of late.

Currently, ZXA has an estimate of 90,489 units sold in its 29th week. ZXA sells roughly a couple thousand copies a week, but even that number is being to drop as well.

Fiscal year ends around March. Can ZXA make it? Will ZXA suffer the same fate of the DASH series?

A Cup O' Tea

How do you get customers to drink your Bubble Tea? Slap a pic of our boy Rockman outside your store and you're good to go!

This copyright infringement was spotted at a local Bubble Tea in Montreal, confirming the fact that Canadian bubble tea mascots are cooler than those in the U.S.

It's true, everything IS better in Canada!

There's an Irregular Hunter in My Pocket!

Before those fancy Personal Terminals, fans had to make do with a personal Rockman X.

Just in time for Rockman X4's release, the now defunct “nFlex” released a virtual Rockman X pet, reminiscent of the popular Tamagotchi pets.

Shaped like X's helmet, users could train their very own “X” by defeating various enemies. After defeating a certain amount of enemies, X will level up increasing his stats.

Compared to the electronic PET/Transer Toys, it isn't as user friendly and it doesn't offer much, but hey, it's awesome.
