Review: Mega Man 9

As my week of vacation comes to a close, I bring you the next installment in the original Mega Man series; Mega Man 9. This game was released nearly a decade after Mega Man & Bass hit stores in Japan. That’s quite a gap! In fact, it seems like Capcom is reveling in the old-school […]
