Street Fighter X Mega Man “Version 2″ update available this Friday

goldenpixel2012-streetfighterxmegamanCapcom has announced (via their Capcom-Unity blog) that the “Version 2″ update of Street Fighter X Mega Man will be available this Friday. Just like the original game, the update will available as a free download through Capcom-Unity’s Mega Man page.

“Version 2″ comes with a variety of tweaks of fixes for the game including my own personal favorite… the debut of a Mega Man II-style password system!

The full list of changes is as follows:

  • Confirmation prompt before exiting (ESC) or resetting (F12) the game
  • E-Tank glitch and various other bugs fixed
  • Improved controller support (Game defaults to keyboard on launch; make sure controller is plugged in prior to opening the file, then go into Options menu and set keys)
  • Take screenshots using F9
  • M. Bison buffed a bit (This place shall become your grave!)

Like last time, I’m sure Street Fighter X Mega Man “Version 2″ will do a number on Capcom-Unity’s servers. So plan accordingly.

Bug fixes coming to Street Fighter X Mega Man in “Version 2″ patch

goldenpixel2012-streetfighterxmegamanThe Mega Man Network recently sat down with Capcom’s Senior Community Manager, Brett “Brelston” Elston, to talk about Street Fighter X Mega Man and the future of the Mega Man franchise. During the course of their conversation, Elston revealed that a batch of bug fixes will be coming to the game as part of a “Version 2″ update.

“[W]e can say we’re working on a V2 that will release soon and hopefully address some of those known issues. It’s not adding content, but we’ve been reading responses and can ‘tighten up’ a few things before the end of the year,” Elston said.

Elston would go on to say that “Version 2″ of Street Fighter X Mega Man should be available sometime this month and will fix “a handful of performance issues” including problems with certain controllers and preventing the game from crashing when you press the ESC key.

goldenpixel2012-header

Welcome to Warp Zoned’s second annual Golden Pixel Awards. It was definitely a good year for gaming. With the fight over Mass Effect 3‘s ending, the resurrection of Sleeping Dogs, and the launch of the Wii U, we were treated to 12 months of interesting stories.

So sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2012 with a series of accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.

The bombs have fallen, the economy has collapsed, food is scarce, the zombie hordes are scratching at your door, and you’ve boarded yourself up in a bunker that’ll stand for a hundred years. What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2012? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2012,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)

Capcom gives Street Fighter X Mega Man fangame the official seal of approval

Well this is a surprise. Capcom has announced that Street Fighter X Mega Man, a fangame created by Seow Zong Hui has been given an official blessing by the bigwigs and will be available as a free download through the Capcom-Unity blog on December 17.

So what is Street Fighter X Mega Man? It’s a PC game that brings Mega Man back to his 8-bit roots for a battle against eight Street Fighters. Each Street Fighter character has been given an 8-bit makeover, but their powers (including Ryu’s Hadoken, Dhalsim’s stretchy arms, and Chun Li’s Lightning Kicks) are all included. Naturally, Mega Man will be able to equip each Street Fighter’s special attack after defeating them in a one-on-one fight. In addition to eight Street Fighter-themed levels, the game will include an original soundtrack supplied by noted chiptune maestro Luke Esquivel (aka “A_Rival”).

You can check out the first screenshots from Street Fighter X Mega Man at the Capcom-Unity blog.
