Do you prefer the name "Megaman" or "Rockman" ?
« on: October 26, 2018, 05:21:36 AM »
I prefer Rockman ! Like rocknroll, rockman musics who are so good....
But for occident, we had always megaman, so it's better to keep "megaman", i think....

Capcom have bought the total copyright of "Rockman" there is some years ago...but not sure, they will use it for the next games if there is.... xD

I prefer Megaman because "Rockman" sounds like what a rock-based robot would be called.
I still rather call the non-combat version "Rock" and not "Mega".

Same here.
"Mega" and "Roll", makes absolutely no sense, whereas "Rock" and "Roll", ahaha, get the joke?
At least it makes more sense. Plus...I do NOT think the series would be the same as it is if "Rockman" was kept for the occident...

"Mega" and "Roll" doesn't make me shake in anger but I do think the old dynamic was a little better.

I'm biased, but "Mega Man" is iconic. I'd never be able to call him Rockman at this point.

Megaman, but only because I'm more used to it over Rockman due to the name being changed outside Japan (and Crashman over Clashman, likewise Balrog, Vega and M.Bison to me will always be a boxer, cage fighter and dictator respectively). I also prefer Megaman (no space) over Mega Man, even the NES games call the character "MEGAMAN", with the exception of a single instance in MM5 after beating the last Darkman robot.

For the non-fighting version, it's Rock all the way. "Mega" belongs in landfill alongside the planned obsolescence known as the PlayStation Portable (and yes, I am still pissed that they didn't even bother releasing Powered Up on the PS2, let alone PS3).

I'm sure Rockman would still have been a huge seller regardless of the name (case in point, American buyers baulked at the box art of the first game, not the name itself). If Mr. Bad Box Art had possibly looked like a rock star (keeping the theme) instead of an obese construction worker it just might have sold better, if they absolutely couldn't keep the anime style of the original game.
