OK if your a fan of classic Video Game characters, you know that Megaman Celebrates his 25th Anniversary this year, and I bet your thinking that would be a pretty big deal and you would be right, sadly seems Capcom didn't think so as all the poor boy got was a crappy free to download Megaman X Street Fighter PC Game. *I know your asking why this isn't in the game section, well just read through and I think you'll see why.
So I decided to make this thread, where fans can come and give PROPER respect and love to everyone's favorite Blue-Bomber on his 25th B-day! Share your experience with fellow fans, what was the first game you played, whats your favorite Mega Man Anime or Cartoon, have your read any of the Megaman comics or manga? etc, etc & so on.
Congrats Megamam, 25 years of amazing games, cartoons, anime, comics & manga! Heres to 25 more! Cheers *bumps E-Tank*
As for me my first experience with Mega-Man, like many others was playing Mega-Man 2, I remember trying me best to get through the first level at my elder cousins house, to no avail, years later I bought Mega Man 8 for my PS1 and played it religiously *mostly cause of the awesome/catchy op anime style scene* And after that played the games off & on.
As for cartoons I watched the original OVA back in the day through rental, dub was kind of bad even back then, and I saw a couple of the Ruby-Spears Megaman cartoon episodes in reruns on occasion, but for me the Mega Man cartoon I watched the most was NT warrior on Kids WB, that one was fun.
I also avidly collect Archie's Megaman Comic *which is actually doing a better job celebrating the characters 25th by having a big-crossover event with the Sonic comic, given it doesn't start till next spring, so its abit late, but its the thought that counts, right XD* And I also really enjoy Hitoshi Ariga's Megaman Mix manga's that Udon Crew has put out over the past couple of years, there pretty fun reads, sufficed to say, the Blue-Bomber is one of my favorite classic characters along with good ol Sonic, Mario & Kirby, and I find it a shame Capcom treats him so poorly these days.
*Can't wait for this event!*
Oh also, anyone else have a nerd-crush on Roll when they were a kid (yeah thats it, just when they were a kid..yeah...not like I still...cause that would be... haha..oh hey look a moose!...*runs off*)
