Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 23] : Pirates on a Sea of Milk

Half-Glass Gaming: Pirates on a Sea of Milk

This week, we briefly chat about some PS4 accessories — including the wonderful 20th Anniversary PlayStation controller — before we race toward our true topic of the week: Mega Man.

Josh and the Reverend try to explain the series to Julian, who’s still a little wet behind the ears on this whole Mega Man thing, and they realize they’ve undertaken a monumental task. Perhaps the countless iterations of the Blue Bomber that we’ve seen over the years are best left unexplained?

Plus, Mandi tells us all about a game called Cocoron, made by the original Mega Man producer — who, you might be surprised to learn, was not Keiji Inafune. She also tells us about a game called Sweet Fuse that was made by Inafune and features Inafune’s niece as a playable character. We’ve also got tales of madness from the comic book series and the beloved 1990s animated series, Protoman’s magnificent whistle, plainclothes Mega Man, Albert Einstein as Dr. Wily, the origins of Bad Box Art Mega Man, and so much more. And, at the end of it all, Josh finally gets to tell the story of how he met Inafune.
