This isn't strictly related to Mega Man, but since it concerns gamers, this might very well be of interest to you.
I've finished my work on the first public version of ION Gamma. This new website, designed for gamers, allows them to store and share all of their online game IDs from a central location. Everyone can register and create a file listing their games and IDs. Then, when they want to play with someone, all they need to do is to give them the link to their file to find the required information. It works especially well for listing Nintendo Friends Codes (finally solving the problem of "where did I put that Mario Kart number again?"), but it also supports many other platforms such as MMORPGs, Steam and Xbox Live IDs.
The site covers, of course, all three Mega Man Star Force games along with several others. Give it a look, maybe you've needed ION Gamma in the past and didn't even realise it!
Also, if you have friends that play online games, it's very possible that they'd like to use this new site too. Be sure to pass the word over to them!
During all the work done to complete the translation of the NES game Rockboard in English, I've learned quite a bit about the game and how it is meant to be played. I decided to regroup this knowledge and create a new Rockboard information page in order to share it with everyone.
This section, a work-in-progress, currently consists of a single page. You can find some general information on the game, the list of characters, a description of the levels available, and a full review. Later updates will add more details about the in-game options, the cards, and so on.
If you're interested, by all opens, go ahead!
Once again, it's time for a new oekaki mini-contest! This regular feature of the oekaki board is held every few months, each time with a different theme.
This is a challenge based on participation and luck: anyone who submits a valid picture through the month will be entered to win a 20$ Amazon.com gift card. As such, anyone interested has a chance to win!
This month's theme: Which Mega Man character do you especially hate?
The full details are available in the latest oekaki board announcement.
