An extremely insightful and fun look at how Mega Man’s movement and animation has and has not changed in 30 years. I really enjoyed the wide range of games, remakes, ports, and whatnot that they looked at in this study. I was surprised that Mega Man 9 and Mean Man 10 were not included, but that could be due to the fact Capcom co-developed those games with Inti Creates. Nevertheless, there is a rich well of animation history to dig through here. It was a blast to watch while work videos exported.
This morning at ten o’clock, Nintendo unveiled the next entry in the Super Smash Brothers franchise. Yet to be named, the fourth game is the first to enter the HD era and go portable. Today, new stages were seen and, of course, new characters. The Dojo, the official website for the game, has launched again, promising constant updates about the game, just like it did for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In response to this, I plan on approaching the Dojo very much like I am approaching Animal Crossing: New Leaf, with weekly summaries of the news and events that occur. Starting today.
