Rockman Online most likely cancelled
Misc Mega Man, by Dr. Cossack on 10 September 2012 at 9:41

Rockman Online, first announced in June 2010, has most likely been cancelled. Updates about the game, which used to be frequent, have all stopped in the past several months; the company handling the project has seen a major downsizing in operations a few months back while an artist affiliated with the project claims that the team has been disbanded. This person has posted previously unknown art, which can be seen here.

As a reminder, Rockman Online was supposed to be a social mobile RPG expected to be released in Korea. It was being developed by Neowiz under a license from Capcom.

Mega Man / Sonic crossover comic confirmed
Misc Mega Man, by Dr. Cossack on 11 July 2012 at 9:53

After being asked that question repeatedly ever since the Mega Man comic series was announced, and a bit of teasing, Archie comics announced yesterday a crossover between their popular Sonic and Mega Man comic lines! The original news from Kotaku are found here, while the official press release is also available.

The crossover, lasting 12 issues, will be written by Ian Flynn. This is the same man who's already taking care of both series and is familiar with both lores down to very specific details, so I'm expecting something great to come out of this!

Mega Man X2 on the Virtual Console
X Series, by Dr. Cossack on 14 June 2012 at 13:25

After a year of wait, Mega Man X2 has been released on the Wii's Virtual Console in North America. This game was the first to use Capcom's CX4 chip, also known as C4, which provides sprite rotations and 3D effects. It's also one of the most difficult Mega Man games to find in cartridge format: I saw this weekend a used, boxed copy available for 130$ CAD!

No Mega Man at E3
Misc Mega Man, by Dr. Cossack on 8 June 2012 at 9:28

To the surprise of about no one, Mega Man failed to make an appearance at this year's E3. This was mostly expected since there was no mention of a possible game on Capcom's lineup, yet some games have shown up unexpectedly in the past.

Representatives of Capcom USA have dropped clues in the past few months that something might be underway for Mega Man's 25th Anniversay, and that we should hear about those plans later this year.

Twelfth Anniversary!
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 6 May 2012 at 21:52

Happy birthday to the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab, as the website is now 12 years old!

This year has been a difficult one for the Mega Man fanbase, with the cancellation of the long-awaited Mega Man Legends 3 and very little else to look forward to as far as game news go. At the very least, the Archie comic has entered it's second year and seems to be here to stay! Site-wise, I've added some months ago the Mega Man games list feature so you can keep track of the games you own and played. The large project is still underway, and I now target to release at least some parts of it this year.

An extended thanks goes to those who have been around for years, I don't think we'd have lasted this long without you! :-)

Mega Man X, the fan movie
X Series, by Dr. Cossack on 12 April 2012 at 22:36

This is something you might have seen somewhere else already, but I do believe it's worth a repost.

A team of fans of the Mega Man X series came together to produce a short movie based on the events that occur before the start of X1. The live-action scenes come together quite well, and I recommend you spare it a few minutes. The entire clip is viewable on YouTube, while fans of the music can grab the soundtrack right here.

Takeshi Aono, voice of Dr. Wily, passes away at 76
Original Series, by Dr. Cossack on 10 April 2012 at 9:34

As reported by the Mega Man Network, voice actor Takeshi Aono passed away yesterday after being sick for the past two years. While he played multiple roles over many, many years, he was better known to Mega Man fans as the Japanese voice for Dr. Wily. He's been associated with the character for about as long as he's had a voice. The Rockman 10 Image Soundtrack included some clips by him, including this memorable speech where he declares to the world how he is the mastermind behind the Roboenza virus.

We'll miss him!

Oekaki board account registration fixed
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 3 April 2012 at 22:45

I've noticed tonight that the account registration process for the oekaki board has been broken since last October(!), thus preventing anyone from joining. The problem is now fixed, so if you had any issues in the past when trying to create an account, please try again! I'm sorry about this.

Update ideas?
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 18 March 2012 at 1:25

Mega Man news have been few and far between for a while, and as such, there hasn't been a lot to post in this area. I currently have two Mega Man-related projects underway to add to this site, but I'm not close yet to releasing them.

Considering the current situation, what would you like to see me posting about? Community events like themed chats and online games, as we did in the past? More Mega Man news tidbits, even if they don't amount to much? Progress about the currently underway projects, despite sometimes not having much to share? Something else? Speak your mind!

Chatroom update
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 8 January 2012 at 22:56

The previous, web-based chatroom has been replaced by a new, IRC-based one!

The new chatroom is now dedicated for the entire domain, which includes the Mega Man PC Website. You can view the entire details on the new chat page. In short, the IRC server is on ports 6666-6669 and 7000, in the channel #interordi. Web clients are also available, just like the former chatroom offered.

Hopefully, this means that more people will be able to participate, and fewer will be hit by slowdowns and crashes as it used to happen from time to time!
