Capcom shocked a tiny group of fans a few weeks back by giving a conclusive fate to one of its projects recently — the cancellation of 3DS prospect Mega Man Legends 3. This has hit the community harder than I thought it was going to, because I’ve witnessed backlash nastier than I’ve ever seen in a cancellation before. But the question is this: Are fans in the right by being so upset?
Let me ask you this. When, at any point, was this project ever set in stone? Capcom, from the very beginning, wanted to test the waters and see how this whole thing was going to pan out, and as such, has thrown ever L3 update with a disclaimer reminding the audience that it is still not greenlit, and may never be. It’s an upsetting idea, but it has to be noted that there are plenty of reason Capcom choose to keep this game as only a potential.
The idea of releasing a game in this market is specialized. Risks are hard to take, and money has to be the bottom line. Now, a consumer might wonder why Capcom, father of many classic arcade-style IPs would disregard the Blue Bomber after such a successful run. You can view it from Capcom’s point of view, or the consumers. As of right now, you’re going to have a difficult time convincing anyone that Mega Man is still pertinent. Is he? You bet. But right now, fans see this — Mega Man Legends 3 was cancelled, a hit that affected a cult following (still significant, though, and it will be touched upon later), Mega Man Universe was canned, and he has been nowhere to be seen in the Marvel vs Capcom universe since 10 years ago. What happened with Mega Man? Read more »

As some of you know, I collect Nintendo stuff. Stuff from all over, toys, figures, cloths, clothes, anything, really. But right now, I’m also in the middle of working on completing my NES collection. There are a handful of games I’m still working diligently on tracking down, and if you (that have offered to help) come across them, feel free to let me know through an email, the site, or a text just what you’ve found off this list. It’s good to contact me, as this list WILL be changing periodically (hopefully) to reflect my progress on the NES collection. Plus, I certainly don’t want anyone spending money on something that’s not worth it, so to double check and verify on anything you find, contact me. Full list after the jump!
