What gameplay mechanics and other features does the first Mega Man game include that make this game special enough to span more than 20 years worth of video games?
The next episode will cover Mega Man 2, and how it built off of the original game and improved the formula and fixed the first game’s flaws.
This video series was created on a whim. Sunday night of this week, I thought about doing it and just went with it. Originally it was supposed to be one big video, but after four pages of script and only getting through Mega Man 2, I knew I was going to have to split it up.

I’m too excited to sleep. I haven’t been this excited about something since getting pulled into Gaming Rebellion full time. I’ve been selected to write a new column for Retroware TV. I think this is an incredible opportunity that I can’t pass up. When I first saw the announcement for writers go up on Retroware’s Twitter account, I figured I’d give it a shot. After filling out an application showcasing my previous work for Gaming Rebellion, Jeremy Pierce aka The Gaming Futurist got back to a group of applicants with a new task. I wrote a short article for them to show them what I could do. I was nervous about my submission, but I went with it. A few weeks later, and I get the email from Mike Anthony, who writes Still Loading, saying I got the gig.
So now I have an exciting challenge ahead of me that I no doubt will tackle. My Break Down series that I have been writing for the better part of this year will be moving to Retroware, with the blessing of our Editor in Chief, Aggro Sky. I’ll be starting up a similar column analyzing MODERN games at Gaming Rebellion. Break Down will continue to cover narratives in retro video games, but you will now find it at Retroware TV’s website. I’m very happy to take on this new opportunity and I’d like to thank the fine people at Retroware TV for taking a chance on an old video game junkie.
