Maybe there's not a lot to discuss, but I made the thread anyway. The only successful Megaman projects going right now are the Archie Comic Books and Street Fighter X Megaman. We may never see another Megaman game again!
It really is quite a shame to see how unpopular the Mega Man franchise has become to current-day Capcom. I remember when my wife and I stopped by the Cap+Bar in Shinjuku, I was hoping to see something... anything, that had something to do with Rock Man there and it was all new stuff, Resident Evil, Ashura's Wrath, Sengoku Basara, Phoenix Wright (Gyakuten Saibon). No E-Tank energy drink.... nothing.
And so I ate a Resident Evil themed Brain Cake instead.
I remember the pictures you took of that cake! It looked convincingly nasty, but it probably tasted great!
I haven't gotten to SFxMM yet, but it sounds pretty cool!
Yeah. I can't say I've been following RMO, but if it were a generic MMO I wouldn't have been too impressed. The biggest disappointments of the decade were the cancellations of MMU and MML3. Short of Capcom straightening the hump out and finishing what they started, nothing could heal those wounds.
I've been following fan game project MegaMan Unlimited and look forward to it. Though unofficial, it's the most promising MM news of the decade. It looks like it's up to the fandom to preserve the Blue Bomber.

I'm also looking forward to RM8FC.
// Your wife rocks!!! That Metool is amazing! Definitely one of the more iconic characters of the series, almost like a mascot or something.

I had a feeling this would happen. I actually was in a Mega Man mood recently, finally played thru Command Mission & Legends 2(still need to play Legends 1 & Tron Bonne). I'd really like to see more Castleroid MM games, I loved the 2 ZX games, & it'd be sweet to have one on a console, but, I don't see that happening.

Oh wow! That is Megaman Eternal is extremely RULING! Getting all excited now! I also remember being blown away at the Megaman Online animations, thinking I should quit drawing them because they looked so great in those. And SkyeWelse that Metool rules!
