It’s that time of year again! The decorations are out, the house smells of Christmas thanks to the tree in the living room, presents are sitting under the tree and all the good food is on the table. We do love Christmas at DDNet, and as always, we’re doing an advent calendar of our own on the site. Each day we’re going to list one game that’s just perfect to play over the Christmas season, so be sure to check back each day to get all the gaming suggestions you’ll need for the season.
It was announced earlier this December that Mega Man is making his triumphant return in the form of a brand new, numbered title: Mega Man 11. It’s not a television show, a mobile spin-off, or pack of playing cards. In a sense it was always inevitable that Capcom would put Mega Man back on the horse after a taking little break (the series did suffer from burnout), but I’m going to be fanciful and call it a Christmas miracle.
The next step, then, is to examine Mega Man’s past using the enhancements of the present in order to appreciate the future. You can do so with the second Mega Man Legacy Collection, which features the sometimes overlooked Mega Man 7 and 8 as well as the lauded 9 and 10.
