Who's ready for Mega Man 11? Nadia is. In the latest episode of the USgamer Podcast, she talks about the Blue Bomber's revival, and she, Mike, and Caty also talk Five Nights at Freddy's reemergence, Destiny 2's expansion, and more. (download link here)!
To be honest, the only thing surprising about Mega Man's return is that it's taken this long. We live in an age where any nostalgic property, no matter how obscure, is bound to get a remake of some sort. That Capcom let Mega Man molder for this long is just proof that they fundamentally misunderstand today's media properties. But hey, let's not be too hard on them. Mega Man 11 is coming soon! Hooray! Oh, and I guess there's a new Destiny 2 expansion or something.
