I don't know how much I do to benefit society, but I work in the music scene and interview artists and review their albums. Mainly of the rock/metal variety. I have done interviews with famous acts in the genre like Dark Tranquillity, for example.
I also write books, and perhaps these stories and the messages held within them will benefit the next and current generation. It's not revolutionary, but it does leave a mark. My novels have just gotten picked up by a small publishing house. I'm not certain as if they will take them immediately, but will be patient and hope for the best.
As for the game, I will certainly be playing it; and with your level of intellect, it might entail a rather out of the box story. Being a writer, a story is very important to me. I admit that I am less interested in blowing robot masters to bits, than I am in knowing why I am doing so. Hence, what is Dr. W up to this time? If it's even Dr. W.
Even though these games aren't canon, a damned good fan-fiction can really sell me over. Yeah, I wrote them in grade school. Little Megaman comic books, but that evolved into longhand stories (with hand drawn maps) and finally into original fiction after many years of practice.
I started when I was just a boy, but now at 28 I still have a fondness for good stories. Megaman 7 remains my favorite Megaman tale, as so much happened. X4 is my second favorite (and I hid a small easter egg in my third novel, based on Sigma's first form - only hardcore mm fans will notice this.)
At any rate, I hope for a clever story and thrilling gameplay. Please post any updates whenever you can.
