Hey, mega nerd. Are you still mega flipping the fuck out over the recent recent mega announcement that Mega Man will be mega appearing as a playable fighter in the next Smash Bros. game? Well then have I got the mega Animal Crossing: New Leaf QR code for you! This pattern features the bane of Dr. Wiley’s existence in all of his beautiful 8-bit pixelated glory. I toyed around with various background colors but nothing aside from the baby blue shade seemed to fit. Mega Man is just too damn adorable.
I gave you guys a heads up back in June about some very cool prints that Blogspot user Jed Henry tossed together and guess what? Lucky for us, the guy isn’t done yet. Apparently these beauties are all part of a year long plan that he hopes will culminate in enough pieces to potentially fill an actual published book. Well, that’s the plan anyway. This site will be featuring each new print as he posts them because I really do love this project and want to support it in any way that doesn’t involve donating money.

So a little while back a guy named Jay Pavlina (alias Exploding Rabbit) created Super Mario Bros. Crossover, a fan-made replica of the classic sidescroller that lets players plow through the Mushroom Kingdom as Mario… or Mega Man or Samus Aran or Simon Belmont. Earlier this month he launched version 2.0 of Super Mario Bros. Crossover, and it is bigger and better in just about every conceivable way. See for yourself:
Mega Man Zero Collection, announced in January for the Nintendo DS, finally has boxart, an official release date, and an official website as of today. The boxart is above, the release date is June 8th, and the official website is right here. There’s also a trailer, embedded after the jump.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never felt so frustrated while playing the original Super Mario Bros. that I wished I could whip out a fucking spread gun but apparently someone has. In Super Mario Crossover which hit the net today, you get the chance to run through the game using various “old school” characters.
Mega Man IV came out in Europe on Friday, and the real version came out yesterday here in North America. That’s the highlight this week, though I don’t care since I have the Anniversary Collection and have grown accustomed to the backwards controls. In case anyone forgot, this is the one that introduced the charge shot, which by Mega Man V largely made the special weapons obsolete, as it handled all the bosses quite handily. I’d also like to say that I love this intro, and it was pretty impressive to me as a kid. You get to see Mega Man being created!
… and for all my hand-wringing, I broke down and bought it. That’s just how I am.
Hey, some other games are out, too!
