As I mentioned on The Mega Man Network, this week’s 1UP Cover Story is “Mega Man: 25 Years of Theme-Park Levels and Stolen Robot Powers,” and I’ve been privileged enough to write some things for it!

Much like my previous contribution about “The Many Versions, Ports, and Re-Releases of Super Mario Bros.,” so too have I written one for the many versions and variations bearing the Mega Man name. Another which went up today is a little more editorialized as I reflect on the first time Capcom let me, a lifelong Mega Man fan, into the Blue Bomber’s world in “The World View of Mega Man.”

There’s one more to come, and I don’t go it alone. Stay tuned, and I’ll let you know when my third and final(?) piece for the week goes up.
