Front Page theme weeks of classic goodness
« on: November 12, 2008, 05:58:19 PM »
So what's happened to the front page on the site, you ask?
We are reliving the past, that's what~ <3

At the start of every week, RPM will have a different site skin that represents the Rockman games somehow. We're starting with the very first game and then gradually go right to the next game at the start of the next week. At these theme weeks, it's our duty, our mission, to not only relive the classic games, but also talk about them to our hearts content.

We would also like to request something from the guests and members. During these weeks, we'd like you to send in something related to the classic game that we are currently having up as a site skin.

It can be any of these things:
* Fan Creations
* Trivia about the game
* Random eye candy
* Hidden secrets
* Glitches and Easter eggs
* Game relations in different media (other games, movie, music, and so on).
* General info about the game (story, bosses, enemies, game experiences, and so on).
* Fun Facts
* General "Did you know...?" type stuff

Pretty much anything that has to do with the games we have up now. Throw anything at us that has any kind of association with the current game and we will look at it and most likely put that up on that game's own page when the week is over.

Oh, while we're at it, don't forget to watch our Video Retrospective of the game in question.
It shows up at the top of the News page.

You can also go for the link right here to watch the videos. Wait until a flash video shows up.
If you missed out on the past site skins, don't worry, you can still see them:

*thumbs up*
we should do the same with the other Megaman series.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Why are you only mentioning the NES games' ports to Playstation?  What about the versions on PSP, Genesis, some cell phones...

PSP and Mega Drive are separate releases, first one is a complete remake, the other one is graphic-enhanced.
Rockman Rockman (PSP) is gonna be on a completely different retrospective.

I can't keep track of every single release of cell phone versions out there, so I count carts/discs for the moment.
If I can make an exact edit to the subtitle text, I think I can squeeze in the Virtual Console version at least. ^^

Well personaly I really love those videos, and themes and the idea is pretty unique and original.

Anyway, about the videos, I enjoy them alot, because it actually shows tactics that we can learn or recognize, or even remember. and it also shows the easiest way out of some nightmares  >0<

Great job on those videos Vixy.  owob
