8-BIT AVENGERS

Here’s a cool little t-shirt design by artist Robert Retiano featuring classic characters that have survived the 8-bit era of gaming as Marvel’s Avengers. There’s Donkey Kong as the Incredible Hulk, Link as Captain America, Mega Man as Iron Man, and Mario as Thor.

What oldschool video game characters would be Black Widow and Hawkeye?

Reblogged from our sister site, blindboxed:
Mega Man x Kidrobot Mini Figure Series
Kidrobot will be following up their successful Street Fighter line with a Mega Man series. No photos have been revealed yet, but my wild guess is that most of the toys will be a standard Mega Man sculpt with different colorways representing the different power-ups, like the palette swaps in the games.
This is pretty cool since the Munny platform already lends itself well to Mega Man’s design. I think for a lot of kids who grew up in the ’80s and then found out about customizing Munnys, their first idea was to do a Mega Man piece.

Capcom Price Drops on iOS Titles
Following on the theme of holiday deals, Capcom has revealed some Thanksgiving sales for mobile devices. iOS is seeing Mega Man X and Devil May Cry 4 Refrain drop from $5 to a price of just $1. Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD is also on sale, dropping from $17 to $5.
I bought Mega Man X, despite hearing horrible reviews about its port over to the iOS, and Devil May Cry 4 Refrain isn’t too great either. Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD seems pretty on point though, according to numerous reliable sources. Definitely recommend Ace Attorney for those wanting a new franchise to dig into or just something to revisit.

Robot Masters Custom Light-Up NES

Console customizers Platinumfungi and Custom NES Guy whipped up this ballin’ backlit NES to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mega Man. It features a sexy blue color scheme with Mega Man’s adorable 8-bit mug on the controllers and lid (and those blue buttons tho!), but the standout feature is the display of robot masters - and they light up!

Preview: Strider HD
Strider HD was one of my most anticipated games. Notice that I used the past tense. Hit the link to read about my hands-on time with Capcom’s first entry in the Strider series in 14 years.
[[MORE]]
I said that this was Capcom’s game, but really it isn’t. Sure, they own the Strider name and character, but this game is being developed by Double Helix, the studio who brought you such gems as G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Battleship. Capcom’s absence is evident.
First of all is the art direction. Strider 2 took place in a shattered city, a castle, a space station, and beyond. Granted, I only played one level of Strider HD, but the stage was just plain boring. I was in a generic high tech lair. Pretty much everything was smooth and blue and meh. Also generic were the bad guys. Obviously enemy models are going to be reused often, but I think I only counted three types of enemies excluding the boss. And all of their designs were Iron-Man-power-suit-and-laser-gun.


Next was the controls and physics. Strider 2 was ridiculously fast paced. If it were any faster, your Playstation would melt. You were zipping through the level, cutting down everything that got in your way. While Strider HD isn’t floaty, it is noticeably slower than Strider 2. The camera is wider as well, making the game feel even slower. Jumps take several seconds to land. The way Strider HD handles takes it down a notch and brings it back into the realm of the standard platformer as opposed to the mayhem of Strider 2.


Strider 2 had a few power-ups like a boost that could be used to shoot lasers out of your sword, a shield, and health replenishments. Strider HD's power-ups actually give Hiryu new powers. Wait, hold on. By “new” I mean he doesn't have them within the first few minutes of Strider HD. As far as I recall, all of the power-ups I got in Strider HD gave me abilities that Hiryu already had in Strider 2. What, did he forget them in his 14-year absence? Maybe there will be cool new power-ups later in the game, but I should be able to do a slide attack right off the bat.


It’s awesome that Capcom are bringing Strider back, but this isn’t the way to do it. It doesn’t feel like the next logical step in the series. There’s no progression here. It’s a step backwards. I’m hoping that they and Double Helix can prove me wrong, but Strider HD is going to be a generic platformer, unlike the unique games that launched the Strider series into cult classic status. Like the Western produced Strider Returns, this will be considered a black sheep by hardcore fans.

Licensed Mega Man Board Game, Coming Soon
Mega Man The Board Game is currently being created by Jasco Games, with permission from Capcom. Totally cool idea, but it needs some help in terms of funding, so its turning to Kickstarter to help pitch in some cash.
They ultimately want to finish this base game and release expansions, but for now, the original game needs to be finish, and from what I’ve read, the original game sounds like a blast. Two to five players will use little Mega Man figurines and a customizable card deck to find Dr. Willy and kick his ass, while expansions hope to bring that player count all the way up to eight, along with adding more weaponry, levels, and characters further down the line.
No official date on when this Kickstarter will launch, other than the “coming soon,” message left on Jasco’s official Facebook page.

These are super slick. I thought there was a name for this art style, but I couldn’t find anything. Has that oldschool 60’s animation vibe, but polished up a-la Samurai Jack/Fosters Home.
