Last Week News Round-up

When it rains, it pours. With a flurry of Mega Man Legends 3 news dominating most of last week, it greatly overshadowed a few smaller news stories -- stories that slipped past my radar, unfortunately.  For convenience sake, I decided to round-up all of those previous uncovered stories in a single post, the one you're reading write now:

Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch Released - At long last the much anticipated full version Mega Man: 8-Bit Deathmatch finally hit the web. The complete version supports a multitude of new modes including single player and offers a plethora of new weaponry not available in the demo build. If you haven't done so already, you can download the game from its official website here.

New Rockman Online 'Gaia' Details -The official Rockman Online blog updated last week with some new info about 'Gaia', the massive military city that serves as the hub for online players. The details reveal the history behind the base's establishment and its current involvement in recent affairs. Check out 200 Percent Protagonist for all the details.

Her Name Is Lilly  - The Mega Man Network got to translating some official DASH 3 materials from the game's Japanese development room, which reveal a bit more about the heroine contest's character. This new female protagonist is apparently going by the name of Lilly (tentative), whose personality lies somewhere in between defiant and cute. She's a positive person but is somewhat careless; acts without thinking. More details available at The Mega Man Network.

Scrumptious MMU Cake - Not news, news, but rather cool in its own right. A fan attending Comic Con dropped by Capcom's booth and shared with them this delightful, home cooked Mega Man Universe cake. The cake is pictured above, but you can catch a better glimpse over at Capcom's Twitter.

Star Force Official Complete Works Delayed - Surprised? The upcoming art book has been bumped from December to January 2011. Amazon has re-listed the book for January 11, though Udon themselves have yet to announce a specific date.


  1. Lily huh? Well, it's goona be a nice addition to the Legends family. *Winks

  2. Thanks for pingback, Protodude. The RM Online stuff I don't think should be counted as really definitive info until KidWillow translates it -properly- (ha, Google Translate only gets you so far!) but I am glad people are finding some use out of the site. :D

  3. Star Force Complete Works has been delayed?

    That's it. I'm done with Udon. I'm sick of them throwing around release dates with no idea whether they'll meet them (which they never do). If they show that little regard for their potential customers by stringing them along time and time again, then they've just lost a customer.

  4. Come on Botman, at least they announced in advance this time. Way better than with say, Megamix 2 XD
