Mega Man Ultimate Character Evolution [Infographic]

Mega Man Ultimate Character Evolution

It’s been 31 years since Mega Man was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, kicking off a franchise with 33 million units sold across 148 titles (at the time this article was published). That’s impressive, especially since—let’s face it—that first game’s cover art didn’t exactly do the game justice. That got us thinking about how many different ways Mega Man has appeared on the cover and in-game artwork, so we decided to take a look! In this infographic, we show how Mega Man changed through the original Mega Man series, Mega Man X, Mega Man Legends, Mega Man Battle Network, Mega Man Zero, Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man Star Force. That’s 39 games and 1 canceled prototype! Note that we focused on the main games released in North America along with their NA release dates as found at the Mega Man Wiki. Alright, it’s time to get serious and check out the evolution of Mega Man!

The Most Valuable Action Figures of All Time

The Most Valuable Action Figures of All Time

Let's just say that many of them are missing some paint, if not arms and legs. But we also own figures that somehow survived the carnage. Maybe they weren't cool enough to play with regularly or we got them when we were older and just never removed them from the packaging. Those figures may be worth a surprising amount of money now! Let's take a look at some of our favorite valuable action figures that might just be sitting in your attic or basement!

The Evolution of Board Games in North America [Infographic]

The Evolution of Board Games in North America

It’s 2018 and we’re in the midst of a board games renaissance. We take it for granted that games released today will be designed by professionals, refined through playtesting, and enjoyed by a wide variety of players. In many ways, they’re much like Hollywood blockbusters backed by the power of market research and test audiences.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that everything released before The Settlers of Catan in 1996 is an unplayable disaster! Ancient pastimes like the Royal Game of Ur, Backgammon, and Chess influenced early American games from Monopoly to Risk, which in turn led to Catan and Pandemic. So it’s about time that we look back at how North American board games have evolved, from The Travellers Tour Through the United States through Gloomhaven. We also show how game and puzzle sales continue to increase every year.
