Holy $#!T, it's Mega Man 9

First off, can we get a hand for that epically terrible box art for the Nintendo classic Mega Man I over there?

There's just far too much wrong with that picture to go over here. Look for it's triumphant return in a future post it has inspired: Worst videogame box art ever.

Now, on to the topic at hand: Mega Man M-er Ef-ing Nine!

I don't know about you guys, but I can easily recall blowing far too many of my childhood hours into Mega Mans one through eight in an effort to put an end to Dr. Wily and his, um, wily antics. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Capcom, I can do the exact same thing with my adult hours as well. Fantastic!

Seriously though, whoever came up with the idea of continuing this series with a return to its 8-bit visuals and *bling-bop-boowip* sound deserves a kiss on the mouth.

Not only is the younger generation of gamers getting a taste of the good old days, but old school players are weeping glorious tears of remembrance for simpler times when HD graphics and 60fps meant nothing (partially because nobody whould have known what any of that meant) compared to the simple joys of ridiculously hard levels and a little thing called "creativity."

Anyway, Mega Man 9 is available for the Wii, 360 and PS3, and it's only ten bucks. I highly recommend you support this project and fully embrace the Blue Bomber goodness.
