Check Out the Old Man's Super/Cross Arts


Here's some additional Bad Box Art Mega Man (and Pac-Man) footage that flew under my radar yesterday. For a pudgy little guy, he's surprisingly agile.

Anyway, in case you missed it, be sure to check out the post below for Yoshinori Ono's explanation why BBAMM was chosen for Street Fighter X Tekken. It may help alleviate some of the frustration that's been making the rounds.

Also, I'd like to direct you to this post at The Mega Man Network. The staff would like for you to "send in a recording of your personal thoughts this appearance of Mega Man, and your stance on things in general." A select few will be chosen to be featured on February's Megacast podcast. Click on the link above for full details!

  4. I guess we've come full circle now. From beloved mascot and gaming icon to an overweight, over-the-hill spandex-clad joke.

    Check, please.

  5. Awwww, I was hoping he'd do the pause glitch when he uses Thunder Beam. Still he looks pretty fun to play as. He's not just a joke character, he's a joke character that can do some damage.

  6. AWWWW MAAAAAAN, that second super would have been BAD ASS if the actual Mega Man was doing it.

    ...!$#@

  7. I can't help but notice that both he and Pac-Man's names are written in ALL CAPS. I can't help but wonder why that is...

    Yes, that was the biggest thing I took from this movie.

    Off-topic: Two year-old Blogger account is a go! :D

  8. Are you kidding me? Both BBAMM's Super and Cross Arts moves are a joke! I will not buy Street Fighter X Tekken. Ever!

    Capcom, you killed my faith because of this! You are not a worthy of it. Good day!

  9. @Angry Anon:


    How are his two moves a joke? A large Buster shot and an acrobatic behind-opponent buster shot with a couple as he runs towards him/her. Nothing joke-like about them at all, actually.

    In fact, these fit in with the game's style perfectly.

  10. I swear, that's gotta be Dan Green voicing him.

  11. "What the hell is this shit" doesn't count as constructive criticism, right? >_>; Even if this is a joke character I can't help but just sigh and cringe.

  12. @Anon in between Joseph Collins and Amir: That's the kind of post that I consider "blowing it out of proportion".

    Anyways, I find it humorous how his big Super Art is just a single gun shot. :P I'm curious to see what else he has going for him.

    Stop you goddamn whine, fuck guys. At this rate you'll be the ones to truly kill Mega Man. And I'm not even defending Capcom.

    It's just a joke, planned (or at least approved) by Mr. Inafune himself, back when Universe and Legends 3 were still in development. It's harmless fun.

  19. @Bad Box Art Mega Man is AWESOME

    I'm sorry but... do you really think that I will buy a PS3 only to play a VERY UGLY-faty cameo version of Megaman ?

    It's really easy for a capcom staff member to say : hey it's Inafune idea...I will not buy this until Inafune confirm it himself

    How can we kill megaman ? Legends 3 was canceled by capcom because they said that fans didn't car about de dev room. And you say that WE kill Megaman ? Plus, we want new games and there's nothing new, just stupid cameos in several boring fighting games.

    Yes I think that it's fans like you who kill Megaman, fans who are ready to buy anything, even sh*t, with the brand MEGAman on it.

    I hope that capcom will give us a new game soon AND PLEASE I DON'T WANT this is how they want to reboot the series ?

    Two words : F*uck capcom

  20. @Role: Not really.

    @Bad Box Art Mega Man is AWESOME: I'd rather have him dead than this piece of shit take his place

  21. @anonymous raging at bbxmm is awesome

    You do know that there are other exclusives, right?
    Like Cole or Pac Man?

    No need to get your panties in a twist just because they added something in for ps3 owners.

  22. Between the Megaman and Skyrim fandoms, I'm really, REALLY getting sick of all this bitching and whining.

    Please, for the love of Kraden, could you people try to act a little more mature? No more of this Crapcom/Bugthesda crap, no more screaming crying and whining - if your criticism can't be a constructive criticism, then DO NOT POST IT. It's painting the whole of the fandom in a bad light, and many of us are getting really sick and tired of being associated with those of you whom are making these little whiny rants.

    If you really honestly think "Megaman are ruined for ever I haet you crapcom", go somewhere else. Please.

  23. Disappointed in you, Capcom! Very disappointed.

  24. I found the rumor that they will introduce in this year a new crossover series between Nintendo's Mario and (if so) Capcom's Megaman can be found in another game.

  25. That is NOT Mega Man.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Man, despite my initial confusion I'm actually really growing to like this guy. It's different, at least. MEGA BUSTER!

    Also yeah I'm kinda getting tired of all the negativity in the fandom lately. Like, I can understand why all of you are pissed, but it's just been one solid block of whining since the Legends 3 cancellation (which admittedly I have not fully forgiven Capcom for).
