As Capcom let the franchise wither on the vine, creator Keiji Inafune took matters into his own hands with the inarguably terrible Mighty No. 9. After spending a weekend with Mega Man 2, the most fondly remembered of the original NES series of games, I fully comprehend the extent of the injustice that Mighty No. 9 did to the Blue Bomber and am reminded of what true gameplay supremacy looks like.

Rock blinks — his optical sensors readjusting to what lies ahead. His blue, dome-shaped helmet is cracked just above his right eye. The fingers of his right hand twitch, tiny servos whirring while gripping the left hand — currently in buster mode, formed into a cannon. Emitting a red light from the cannon’s maw, Rock charges as much energy as possible into the next blast… but as he blinks again, one thought occurs to him:

Traditionally the fall of each year is the time when some of the biggest video games are released. Already big titles like Super Mario Maker, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Halo 5: Guardians have been released. Titles like Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be joining them in a matter of weeks.

February in particular is loaded with a slew of big releases and is why I think the month will be a great Valentine’s gift for gamers. So here are some of the titles that will have gamers feeling especially loved. Continue reading How February 2016 is Shaping Up to be a Valentine’s Day Gift for Gamers →
