During the original Mega Man-athon we didn’t have this fancy blog thing up and running (which is why most of our content was available over at Half Empty E-Tank). Now that we’re all set here, check out that announcement trailer above! I had a lot of fun making that and we loved that we could include the MAGfest kitty Sunny in the mix. We didn’t really know what to expect from any of it. The crew was new to all things MAGfest and Mega Man-athon and it really shows as we did a lot of work while improvising. Unfortunately due to that we didn’t take that many pictures but we’ve got a small gallery available after the break. Continue reading
We had a lot of really great guest stop by the Mega Man-athon streaming table at MAGfest 11 this year but Mega Ran (Random) is probably my favorite interview out of the lot just because of his great inspirational message that he delivers after our conversation about Jeremy Lin. This guy is a class act and a half. Keep an eye on Half Empty E-Tank for the next few days as I crank out all of our content as fast as I can while defraging after the 72 hour Mega Man-athon!
I’ve got bad news guys. Thanks to me the Protomen have decided to not do Act III. Now before you start sending me hate mail and threatening to kick the Dennis DeYoung out of me. Realize this is a joke! (Seriously, don’t bug me about Act III) Anyways, this wasn’t my strongest interview. I honestly just turned into a giant fan and the words didn’t connect. That’s ok though, Panther and Commander took over the Mega Man-athon and threatened to come to your house if you don’t like STYX. I can get behind that.
The Megas sat down with the Mega Man-athon crew at MAGfest 11 and we caught up with them on their favorite Mega Man titles and when we can look forward to History Repeating: Red! I’m still kicking myself that I missed out on them and Power Glove doing the Power Rangers theme song. Oh and sorry about the camera jiggles, I think our camera man couldn’t contain his excitement about the whole band being there and became a little unsteady.
Julian Spillane of Team Reaverbot joined us at the Mega Man-athon booth to talk about his upcoming fan game, Mega Man 25th Anniversary. We played through the demo together (which you can download yourself by clicking here) and he gave us an exclusive preview to some of the upcoming features that’ll release with the game. Do you want alternative tracks for every stage in the game? You got ‘em! How about NSF (NES Sound Files)? Those are there too! Also I’m not sure if it was an exclusive but he mentioned some details about Amp Man’s stage and I’m super excited to play through a Mega Man styled music based platform stage. Everything is in the video above so check it out now! Editors Note: Sorry about the video gap in the middle. I included the question I asked but the camera went down for about 30 seconds while moving into a new position.
The Mega Man-athon’s got a blog now! We’ll be adding quite a bit of content from the last Mega Man-athon while keeping people up to date on what to expect from us this year for Mega Man-athon 2! Stick around as this is a work in progress. Oh you want to see the old Mega Man-athon site? It’s still around and you can give it a looksie by clicking here.
