Gal Gun is embarrassing. Ludwig learned this firsthand while playing the Xbox 360 shooting game at Tokyo Game Show. It's so embarrassing that even developer Inti Creates and publisher Alchemist had to acknowledge the fact that players wouldn't want to be seen playing it. The developer has implemente...

I'm so glad my mom didn't attend the Tokyo Game Show with me this year.

Nothing quite says "awkward Japanese video game stereotypes" like the trailer for the just revealed Gal Gun. Uncomfortable camera shots of Japanese high school girls, bizarre moan-like noises coming from said high school girls, and, of course, tentacles abound in the game's debut trailer (found aft...

Chances are you already know whether or not you'll purchase Mega Man 10. For retro gaming junkies -- particularly those who love punishment -- it's pretty much a no-brainer. On the other hand, those that enjoy the simple mechanics but not the bone-crushing difficulty might have a harder time pullin...

Capcom offered the first look at Rockman Zero Collection with a new trailer on the game's website. Well, second look if you count the original games as the first look. Unsurprisingly, the collection as presented on the DS looks just like the games running on GBA, with some placeholder imagery on the...

If you took an extended break from Mega Man in the 2000s, until the release of Mega Man 9, you missed out on some great, punishing games developed by MM9 creator Inti Creates -- and it appears that Capcom's going to give you a chance to go back to them.

var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/nintendo/Top_5_Things_We_Love_About_Mega_Man_9'; Ugh, I'm so sick with the obsession over Mega Man 9. WE GET IT, IT'S A RETRO GAME. WHOOPEE. No, seriously, I'm sick of my own obsession with it. I still haven't picked up Wario Land: Shake It!, de Blob, or...

Apparently, I Am 8-bit artist Gerald de Jesus was commissioned for the homage to Mega Man's packaging designs of yore.The shirts were originally created exclusive...

In an effort to help build anticipation for Mega Man 9, and probably to prepare new players who don't realize how brutal Mega Man games can be, Capcom announced that the first two games in the series will be released on the Virtual Console in the two months leading up to the September release of the...
