The return of Games that are Metal

Today marks the return of an early feature of the site that I haven't revisited in a while: Games that are Metal. I was inspired by the following image. For maximum viewing pleasure, please imagine a kick-ass wailing guitar solo in your head while viewing:


Not only does Mega Man have a gun for a hand, but he's using his free hand to hold another gun, and using that other gun to fire blind at an attacking robot while he shoots his gunhand into the air, all while clearly screaming an ultra-high hair metal note. And there is a robot dragon in the background, firing his torso-cannons wildly into the air.

It just doesn't get more metal than that.

Seriously, where is that picture from?

Okay, so far as I've seen this image is connect to Megaman 10, where one boss is SheepMan, and the other is CommandoMan (he doesn't wear underwear, which I'm not sure, but it sounds metal).

holy. shit.

You can't wear underwear with tight leather pants, so I'm thinking Commandoman is very metal. :D

And yeah, the image is the "cover" for Mega Man 10, which was recently announced for Wiiware. It's a totally new game, but like Mega Man 9, it's done in the classic 8-bit NES style.
