Mega Man 9

In the past, I have alluded to the fact that I absolutely fucking love the original Mega Man video game franchise. So, I am naturally very jazzed about the announcement of the development of Mega Man 9 for Wiiware. Although the Wii seems to be primarily used for pretending that you’re bowling or doing Pilates, apparently you can use this “Wiiware” set up to download video games to the system as well. What is particularly cool about Mega Man 9 is that they are doing it in traditional 8 bit style a la Mega Man 1-6.

      This makes me want to buy a Wii. I think I can still sit down and beat Mega Man and Mega Man 2 without much trouble. I wonder if they’ll go back to the original cover art.

      It’s a download only thing, so no packaging as far as I know. We should have a Nerd City Mega Man tournament. The prize could be a date with Chef James.

      Would the date have to involve the Hackney’s bathroom?
