There's a nasty virus running around these days. You'll get a message looking like this:
Hi! How are you?

See you later. Thanks

The end of the N64
Finally, we reached that day... The very last Nintendo 64 game was released in Japan last week. That game is a horse simulation. You can read to text on IGNPocket site here. The Nintendo Game Cube will be out the 14th September 2001. This means that there will not be any new games for a Nintendo home console for a month and a half.
You might have noticed a lack of updates lately. This has many reasons. First of all, there is nothing big happening in the Mega Man Community: the next game is supposed to come out in September. Next, I've been working many hours this summer, thus leaving me with less free time. More, I got many new games lately, plus the old games I haven't beaten yet, so this gives me a lot of job on my hands :-P Patience, patience... There is only 3 more weeks before I go back to College. As stupid as it may sound, I'll be able to update more often when I'm back at school.
I added to the Links by Character page a few new websites. Check it out here
I added a new affiliate today: Artic Freeze. Updated many times a day, growing quickly with some original features, it's worth a look!
First of all, my apologies for the late update. My job is hard on me these days...
Rockman X2: Soul Eraser released!
And another game of the ever-lasting Rockman / Mega Man saga is out! Rockman X2: Soul Eraser was released yesterday in Japan. This game is the sequel of Rockman X: Cybermission. Unlike it's predecessor, X2 has many new features on it. While the first game was a more-or-less direct port of the SNES games Mega Man X1 and X2 on the GBC, Soul Eraser adds brand new levels, weapons and characters in the game. You can now play as X or Zero, in eight Maverick stages from the SNES X1, X2 and X3. The game will be released in the US as Mega Man Xtreme 2, the September 15, 2001.
As you can see, I changed the layout of this page. This will provide you with quick links to many of the main sections of this site, and less introduction babbling.
On this third project in the line of the Dr. Cossack presents, I'm now releasing the Mega Man PC Website Oekaki board!. Now I know what you are thiking: "What's an oekaki?!" An oekaki board is a modified version of a message board. The goal here is to draw pictures using the oekaki applet. You do any kind of drawing on the page, you save it, explain it a little, then people can reply on the board, saying what they think of your picture. You also get to give feedback to the other artists' work. Here are a couple of details about the board:
I'll be working many hours in the following days. I'll try to keep the normal rate of updates for the website, but I might not be able to answer to e-mails as fast as I do it usually. Please bear with me, my job is allowing me to pay for this website :-)
I made a good update on the MegaCards Central today, as I added many pictures. Previously, there were only pictures from characters of the original series. Today, I added many characters from the X series, as well as a picture of Mega Man EXE. If you don't know what MegaCards is yet, it is a way to send to your friends a postcard, by e-mail. Check it out!
I added to the Downloads section a new file: a Mega Man startup screen for Windows! I created this file many months ago for my own computer, so why not sharing it with you? :-) The installation is simple: go to the Downloads section, get the file, and extract the Logo.sys file to the C:\ directory. Just restart your computer to see the new screen!
I have a question today: did any of you played and loved the X-Wing Series? This serie was made of 4 games:
If you played any of those games, please go to this topic of the message board, I want to hear about you!
Somewhen in the middle of the afternoon (EST), the server was down. That didn't lasted long, and it's now back online, as you can see :-)

Rockman X2: Sould Eraser site
The second website is about the upcoming Rockman X2: Soul Eraser game (to be released here as Mega Man Xtreme 2). This one is more complete, with many new pictures and screenshots, and a lot of information about this upcoming game. Remember that everything is in Japanese... Go there to see this new site!
MMBN section updated
The Mega Man Battle Network section was getting awfully outdated, so I reworked it to add the latest news from Capcom Japan and Capcom of America.
According to Packard, Rockman X2: Soul Eraser (known here as Mega Man Xtreme 2) will be released in Japan the 19th July 2001. In case you don't know yet, this is the second adventure of X and Zero for the Game Boy Color. The game is slated for a September release in the US.
