    A mega effort

    Capcom has really been on the ball with the Wii U Virtual Console — in just about one year, it has managed to release every single Mega Man game that saw the light of day on the Wii Virtual Console — and more — with Mega Man X2 being the latest release.

    Capcom's Art Director blew it

    Retro game covers can be fascinating, on occasion because of just how awful they can look.
