Why do some Megaman fans continually think that it's possible for a Megaman game to be made that both appeals to old fans and attracts new ones? Seriously. What popular new gaming trends can Capcom insert into Megaman without alienating the fanbase?

I really don't get why Megaman fans have a hard time accepting we're a niche. You don't have to like games like Megaman 9 or 10 but at least we're not getting shit like Bomberman Act Zero.

We almost did, with that MMX shooter by the Metroid Prime team.

they sure as hell didn't need to put a whole lot of effort into making either of those games.


what planet are you on? It's not like they just took an NES emulator and stuck it on the Wii. They did a lot of coding and new sprite creation and etc just FOR the oldschool MM fans. Of COURSE they weren't worried about making it "viable", they were just making it for us.

God, you even whine when Capcom spends its money to make a gift for its fans. This is the reason videogame companies are floundering now.

My problem with Mega Man is that it was too embedded in its retro roots. There was no major attempt to grow past them, or at the very least, no attempts they stuck with. There's nothing wrong with 2D games or retro-style games, it's just that, even with more recent stuff like Mega Man Universe, it was still mired in those traditions and didn't try to grow. It appealed to old fans because that's all it knew how to do.

That and at this point no one's getting crap anymore. The only recent Mega Man release we've seen is that phone game, and... what, three games canceled?

What a great movie (and yeah, the birth was LOLWUT as a kid)

I have no favorite movie from childhood. I wasn't much of a movie watcher, just cartoons.

That's a good one. It recently played on TV, I ended up watching most of it again.

I'm in a similar situation as Hollow by being more of a cartoons fan, so I can't really give any names.

Cartoon? Man, Lord of the Rings. In retrospect they're AWFUL but they got me into the fantasy genre at an early age and made me decide I wanted to read. Chilling in kindergarten, reading The Lord of the Rings. Teacher was like 'The hell?'.

I can't remember my old birthday parties as a kid much, other than one time we made horses, like the head-on-a-stick kind, and painted them.

Last year's was pretty good too. First time I had set up a real party since years, barbeque, movie, lots of laughing, staying up 'til 3 AM talking... some of them stayed the night because they live far away, so they left on the bus the day after.

I don't tend to have super exciting birthdays. I usually spend part of the day with friends/family, have a good meal, get gifts (sometimes) then part ways. It's fun every time, of course, but that doesn't give me a chance to share any specific stories! :)

It was my 14th birthday when I was positive I was going to die the next day, so I spent the entire birthday miserable and inconsolable with grief.

I was wrong.

Good News around these dots...

My Internet is up and running again, my guess was my computer had a giga-fart.

Anyways, keep an eye around the Fan Art section. I am kind of tempted on visual updates. Mega Man and Non-Megaman related.

Question Time, after careful thinking and looking over some of the past posts. What Zelda game, do you think, would work best for a MegaMan cross Zelda?

I'm thinking Zelda II, of the Nintendo series. Overworld roaming and laberynths, with the side view dungeons and enemy fights. Open thoughts as usual.

Once again, the topics come alive...

Reality can really take over someone so easily, specially with work, running errands, house chores...

Anyways, back from vacation from this, I wanted to start out by saying. Some set stones are in place, to get my career on its wheels. Been drawing a lot more, character developing, stories, screen plays. The whole 9 yards, almost. Despite the money ordeal, so far so good.

Very first chance I get, I will create a new ART Topic. One where you can see the projects I hope to get underway. This is my Christmas Present from me to you all.

DUN DUN DUN.......................................

The first of my new updates has been posted in the art section. To make another mark for Doc, 14 years is a long time, I have been patiently waiting for this anniversary to make these updates.

Doc, It is up to you. As one of your longer fans in these forums and site, your choice if you want to post The Madness on the front page. Do the other fans agree!?

Now that the Weekly Chit Chat is back...

...Wednesday will be the day. That's right, in the middle of the week. That way we can keep things active, hopefully. I recently had some snow, it is finally melted. Mothers Day was a white, cold holiday.

How Was Your Mommy Day!? :huh:

I spent lunch time at my maternal grandmother's home, then spent the rest of the day with my family. I'm amused at how much energy said grandmother still has at 83 years old, her own daughters are having trouble keeping up with her! :D

That depends, on the genre and types of vampires. What I have planned for some day, will be different. Don't know how, but different some how.

As for the next topic...

Are there any Cartoon Movies, that gave you the creeps or scared you? I remember one cartoon that did just that to me, a cartoon movie called Water Ship Down. It's about rabbits in a search for a new home. Surprisingly gory for a movie intended for kids.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, I am looking forward to it. I have always been a TMNT fan. Therefore, I ask, What does everyone think about Megan Fox playing as April O'neil?

She's a fucking terrible choice. April is, in damn near every incarnation of her across the franchise, a redhead. So they get someone with black hair and don't have the decency to dye it red?

Also, white guy Shredder? What the hell. He's always Asian, except the few instances where he's an alien. And that alien based his appearance off of the goddamn Asian Shredder! There's only one way they can redeem that casting fuck-up and that's by making this Shredder an alien as well.

And somehow I doubt we'll get that saving grace. Now I know how THD felt about the Transformers movies and his childhood.

While I wouldn't use RD's language, I have to agree with the core ideas. The turtles look decent, from the trailer I've seen, the proper style looks there, but the casting doesn't impress me.

Granted, the only TNMT that I'm really familiar with is the 80's cartoons, the older 3 movies and the NES games, so my opinion is only worth as much!

I don't care one way or the other about Megan Fox as an actress--I've seen maybe two of her roles so I'm largely indifferent to her as an actress--but put the proper appearance to an established character role, okay? Megan Fox does not look like April O'Neil. It's like how Noah Ringer was cast as Aang in The Last Airbender, and it didn't go over with that fandom.

The only way they can really make this white guy work as the Shredder is by revealing that it's a shell body for an Utrom, much like how they did the first Shredder in the 2003 cartoon--and even then they had the decency to A) have the shell appear as an Asian man, and B) reveal that said Asian body was deliberately based off of the original Shredder of that timeline, an Asian who bonded with a demon to become the Shredder.

The TMNT movies entertained the usage of Utroms before--they were in fact going to have Professor Jordan Perry reveal himself to be an Utrom in the script of the second movie, but decided against it because too many people were unfamiliar with the Utroms from the original comics, and figured they'd mistake him for 1988 cartoon's Krang, but given the success of the new cartoon and its usage of Utroms, they've lost that excuse.

But honestly? I just don't see them going down that road. So we're stuck with white guy!Shredder, and I don't know how well that's going to go over with the rest of the fans. It sure as hell isn't going over real well with me, after all.

A lot of people have issue with the turtles' facial designs, and I can mostly understand it, but for the most part I'm okay with that. A lot of people take issue with their having lips, but I can understand that design choice if nothing else. Lips help with expressions and emotions. The rest of the body I'm okay with, it's hardly the first time the turtles' have changed up their attire in the franchise. It's the human characters that the production team dropped the ball with.

I'm still open minded about the movie, the only disappointment I have towards the movie and Megan Fox. She doesn't have the proper, facial features to be April. Mila Jovovich, from the Resident Evil movies. I feel that she has better qualities and features to be April.

As for the next...

Is a voting session, who here would like to see another Gargoyles Quest?

Firebrand the Gargoyle in a brand new quest, fighting and defending against mystic entities. What do you think?!?!

A no go on that one...

Something different this time around. A new type of zodiac is in the making, new signs new meanings.

All 12 spots are opened. Please, pick a mythical creature first. That will be the Armor. Pick a animal, will represent as half the warriors physical body. Pick a color, that will be the color of the element and glyph.
Can be Male or Female, Please don't pick Dragon, certain details about this later in a proper topic.

Example: The 13th Sign

Bahamut = Crown
Half Chameleon, Half Human
Rainbow = Time
Male

The purpose behind this, one of the projects I am hoping to do. Story wise, involves the real world and the dream world.
