Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I was on board with this article until you dissed Volt Catfish. It’s a literal electric catfish, which I only learned was a thing after playing multiple video games where catfish randomly (or so I thought) had electric powers.

    Oh, and just adding to the points with actual (as opposed to secret) historical fact: Rockman and Forte wasn’t even reskinned; the graphics look pretty because the graphical assets (including two of the bosses) were taken directly from Megaman 8 on the PS1.

    I’m actually curious how you feel about MM9, which is arguably the best Megaman game despite coming out in 2008.

    Our emulation experiences mostly line up, although mine was time-shifted about two years to discover ROMs and emulation in 1999 or so. My first memory of emulating the SNES is doing so with friends at a public access site, each of us playing Rockman and Forte from a shared folder. The savestates one of us made saved to that folder, so everyone could load them (or have theirs rewritten.) I recall being the one to beat Burner Man.

    Oh yeah, and X3 kind of blows. Synth grunge isn’t my style, and it crows itself into a collectathon of sorts with all the useless chips and ride armors and whatnot.

    This blog is starting to feel like a secret history of my own life…I went to CTY in Hamilton College, I went to the Danbury Mall as a kid, I loved MMX…
