More Mega Man Mashups

Many Many Mega Men by DeviantArtist captainslam


It’s no secret that I can’t get enough Mega Man in my life.  So anytime someone like captainslam here is going to go to the effort of putting together a buttload of fan art, AAAAND throw a bunch of my favorite games of all-time into the mix, I’m going to take notice.  Well played, sir.


What if Mortal Kombat Were Played on an Atari?

It would look slightly worse than this.  And it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun.  Nonetheless it is interesting to see how your mushy human brain makes the connections between these simple rectangles and the memory of dumping $1000’s in quarters at your local arcade.  Flickr user infinitecontinues came up with the concept, and had the time to give Street Fighter II the treatment as well.

MK9 is slated to release in March 2011.

Marvel Characters Get Mega Makeover

Didn’t think you’d see me use the phrase “mega makeover”? Well think again, sister!  Seriously though, I’ve been trying to come up with something less gay for about 45 minutes and it ain’t happening so let’s all move past the headline together.

DeviantArtist suzuran has drawn up some of the most famous Marvel characters in the style of Capcom’s Mega Man.  I have to say, this is a game I could get into.  There have been some proxies for these characters in past Mega Man titles; guys like Slash Man and Magnet Man to name a few.  Most of them could easily be worked into a cross-promotion for the upcoming Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, which was a big hit at E3 this year.

This was just something fun I did with my work buddies. I think it started with what would happen if Megaman had Spider-Man’s powers.  I liked the idea so I just started making Megaman shoot a webshooter… Coworkers loved it so much that they asked for more powers, and it eventually turned into me just turning everyone into 8-Bit sprites.

Good to know you’re getting paid to be just as productive as I am while I’m living in abject poverty and trapping rats for food.

UPDATE: “Mega mash-up,” GODDAMMIT!
