RetroActive Episode 3: Mega Man X (1993)

leave a comment »


Mega Man (or Rockman as he’s known in Japan) was a significant franchise for Capcom in the NES era spanning 6 titles and just about as many on the Game Boy. On the Super NES, however, things were shaken up with the arrival of Mega Man X. Fred and Chase (from Learned From Gaming) team up to discuss a refreshing update to the classic formula. Also included is the announcement of the show going weekly and a breakdown of the heavy similarities between Sega’s Master System and Game Gear. Cover art from Rockman X, all songs from Mega Man X.
