True Blue, Part Eight: Hole in the Sky, Window in Time

trueblue8

Welcome to the eighth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in “Worlds Unite,” the Zeti used their powers to take control of the Robot Masters, pitting Mega Man and his friends against Sonic and the Freedom Fighters. It was an epic battle, but Wily and Eggman came up with a disruptor ray to shut down the robots and stun the Zeti long enough for the good guys to prevail. Though everyone needed time to recuperate, Sigma's newly evolved form bursts forth from Lost Hex. Not only will the heroes have to contend with the bigger, badder Sigma 2.0, they're also faced with taking on every single Maverick you can think of, and even some you can't. The battle for Lost Hex has clearly only just begun, and our heroes are going to need every last bit of help they can get.

Back in Metropolis, Superman and Lois must face the consequences and aftermath of the epic Convergence event.

Now that we have learned the identity of the mysterious Arkham Knight, you’d best believe that there are all kinds of new, twisted tales featuring this mysterious villain. On the other side of the galaxy, Hal Jordan must face Black Hand yet again. Only this time, one of them is armed with a weapon stronger than a dozen Green Lantern rings combined, and the other has the power to turn whole planets to stone.

True Blue, Part Seven: San Diego Comic-Con Special Edition

true 7

Welcome to the seventh installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event. This week, we're digging even deeper with more details about the future of Archie Action, Mega Man and Sonic Boom straight from San Diego Comic-Con.

Previously in "Worlds Unite," our heroes had been searching for Sigma and his hideout, Lost Hex. The group, traveling aboard Sky Patrol, had been searching the area Wily and Eggman directed them to, and were met with swift resistance from Sigma's new robot army. Fortunately, the team of Freedom Fighters and Robot Masters makes short work of the mechanized opposition, but the Deadly Six prove to be a bit more trouble than expected. Even as defeat loomed, the Zeti were able to overcome the odds and take control of Mega Man and his friends to do the fighting for them.

tru blu 6

Welcome to the fourth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in "Worlds Unite," the heroes of both Sonic's and Mega Man's universes had regrouped and started roaming the combined worlds aboard Sky Patrol in search of Sigma. With little to go on in the way of actual leads, Sonic, Mega Man, X and the rest of the team spent time bickering about what steps to take next. Elsewhere on Lost Hex, Eggman and Wily had betrayed Sigma, and were trying to hide from the Deadly Six. Fortunately for them, Xander Payne arrived to teleport them to Sky Patrol, where they would help the Freedom Fighters and Robot Masters prepare for an assault on Lost Hex. Though Sonic and Mega Man were weary of Wily and Eggman, they had no choice but to ally themselves with the doctors in the hopes of stopping Sigma. Now it was finally time to take the fight to the man behind all the worlds' troubles.

True Blue, Part Five: Destiny and Uneasy Alliances

uneasy head

Welcome to the fourth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in "Worlds Unite," Sonic and Mega Man had been captured by Sigma, transformed into evil versions of themselves by the doctors Wily and Eggman, and sent to one another's worlds to plant Sigma's Unity Engines. Once activated in Mega City and Mobotropolis, the Unity Engines started the process of combining Mega Man's and Sonic's worlds into one. It was then that Sonic Man and M'egga Man first set eyes on each other, and began fighting immediately. While chaos ensued all around them, the Robot Masters and Freedom Fighters did their best to salvage a terrible situation. Unbeknownst to Sigma, Wily and Eggman implanted a fail-safe into both M'egga Man and Sonic Man's designs. When struck at the proper time, Mega Man and Sonic freed themselves from Sigma's control, and were able to return to normal. Unfortunately, they may already be too late to save their worlds.

E3 2015: It’s All About Teamwork in Lego Marvel’s Avengers

TT Games
TT Games

Since launching in 2005, the Lego [Insert Video Game License Here] series has stayed true to its roots, while offering incremental improvements with every iteration. The earliest games relied heavily on sight gags, while later additions were able to incorporate full voice over tracks to great effect. While we've seen Lego Marvel Super Heroes in action before, Lego Marvel's Avengers is the first superhero license to be based on a film. We've gotten a handful of Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings games, as well as other comic-based titles, but even the previous Marvel Lego game was an original tale.

With this retelling of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Lego will let us relive the movies as they happened, including voice tracks taken straight from the cinematic cuts of the two blockbusters. That means, yes, Scarlett Johansson will voice Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson will be Nick Fury, but you shouldn't count on hearing them say anything you haven't already heard from the dozens of times you've watched the films themselves. That doesn't mean there won't be some new tricks up TT Games' sleeve. In fact, in our short time with the demo, there were some nice new touches already in place.
