A MegaMan Post

In the past month Megamans 1&2 both made their way to the Wii's Virtual Console to get everybody excited for MegaMan 9. Megaman 1 was okay but MegaMan 2 was really fun! But the better part of these games are the crappy box art. Especially for MegaMan 1:

I wonder if Capcom hired some homeless person to do this cover. I also wonder what Megaman would have looked like if he were designed after this cover:

Jumping would look like this:

The Megaman 2 boxart was a bit better but the artist made him look nothing like he does on the game:
This would've sucked:
Here's hoping MegaMan 3 comes to the virtual console soon!

Other weird/fun megaman stuff on the web:

And of course... the gay crashman song:

haha Idunno. Just searching for megaman stuff you come up with all kinds of craziness. Some of the artwork I saw.... some things you can't unsee.

Mega Man 9 is out on the Virtual Console now! Search around and check out the box art for it... Capcom decided to stick with the weird yet awesomely awful covers trend!

By the way, do you also have a PS3 and Xbox 360? If you don't, you should take a look at this Stacker 2 contest going on right now where you can win the system of your choice. All you have to do to enter is design a 6 Hour Power t-shirt, which is surprisingly easy to do online. There are less than 350 entrants as of now and weekly prizes to win such as 6 Hour Power energy shots (which are great for gaming sessions). For contest details, go here:

By the way, I hope you don't mind me commenting on your post, Josh. I work with 6HP so let me know if you have any questions about the contest or 6HP energy shots. Be sure to tell me if you enter too, and I'll definitely vote for your designs. Good luck.
