Twenty-five is an appropriate age to look back on your youth, reflect upon the adult you’ve become, and hang onto the things of your childhood for just a little bit longer (or, in most of our cases, forever). For regular humans, it’s also the age your car insurance rates first go down. For poor Mega Man, however, it was barely acknowledged until fan demand made it so, and Capcom decided to gift us all with memories of his young self as an 8-bit character…and threw Street Fighter characters into the mix as well. This is, admittedly, an unfair disadvantage for the world warriors, who came into their heyday in 16-bit. It is also extremely cute, if one can say that about the likes of green Brazilian electro-beasts.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
