When a game console gets smacked to pieces, taking this matter into court and argue the matter with controllers, Super Smash Bros. and Boobs, you know you have one of the best Comic Jams ever collaborated by RPM members. When RPM crashed at the end of 2008, one would expect that it would be a great Comic Jam to write about, but the humor falls short against a long-living legend like "The Broken Record".

Vixy tried her best to bring back the funny roots of Comic Jam by starting "Shopping with RPM" and "Resident PM" this year. As active as they first were at the moment, no one worked on them after a couple of days/weeks, which was a shame. After "The Broken Record", it didn't take long until this sparked Protoman Blues's interest, and from his sexy mind came "RPM Around The World" and "RPM vs. Capcom", which thanks to his writing and various member drawings turned into as big of a smash-hit as the rest of the Comic Jams.

But the winner "The Broken Record" actually ended well, and it will remind us how even the most funniest, silliest and random story plot can turn into a cool comic.

Lucky Star first started in 2004 as a 4-panel comic strip manga with no ongoing plot and focusing on the daily lives of the characters featured in it. A Drama CD and a Nintendo DS game in 2005 made the series more famous, and in 2007, another Nintendo DS game came out, along with a visual novel game for PS2 in 2008. But the shining point for the series was when it was finally time to be animated for TV. The anime for Lucky Star was first aired at early 2007 and ended later on. It didn't take a long time until the crazy antics of Konata Izumi and friends took over our lives with parodies of other series and big mix of personalities to familiarize with.

Following Lucky Star on the list is Casshern Sins and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, who in their own way shows that anime with a well-planned plot (and a few mishaps at some spots) outshines other anime series in quality. In the list, there's also some old classics, like Rurouni Kenshin, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, Bleach and Cowboy Bebop. Too bad there are series that fall down lower on the list that needs more attention, like Fate/Stay Night, Genshiken, Kanokon, Metropolis, Samurai Champloo, Slayers, Spice and Wolf, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, just to name a few.

If you want a mix of everything, different kinda of parodies from other series, silly humor, and random discussion between adorable characters, then Lucky Star is your anime. OHA LUCKY~!!

Casshern Sins, remade from the classic "Neo-Human Casshern", aired in early October 2008. It stars Casshern, who is unsure of what he has done after 100 years of slumber. The world he is on has become a poisonous wasteland and Casshern gets attacked by a huge bunch of inhabitants who wants to "Kill Casshern!", but never seems to make it. Casshern later finds out that he was the cause of the world being in ruins and now questions if he is a saint or the world's biggest threat. The anime will last for roughly 24 episodes, but halfway through, it already made a lot of fans cream their undies of excitement and wanting more of this type of action anime. The artwork is top quality too.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Toradora! falls short on the list with roughly half the points that Casshern Sins has, but they were still great anime to enjoy this year. Kara no Kyoukai, Kanokon, Spice and Wolf, Soul Eater, TotA and To Love-Ru are good animes to enjoy too. This award goes to Casshern Sins. Be sure to enjoy the rest of the anime if you are already collecting every episode.

After many years of hype, and non-stop online bum smacking since March this year, it's no surprise that the most played and most favorite game on RPM is Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Everyday is Free For All day, and this game sure gives everyone with a Wii a reason to join in. Whether you would be smacked down by Ganondorf's Warlock Punch or just feel like taunting around with your own smartass messages, Super Smash Bros. Brawl doesn't fail at giving out random moments of hilarious fun every single match. Every match is as random as the last one.

There is a couple of Mega Man games that made it to the list too, but some good gold mines is also Super Mario Galaxy, Tetris, Final Fantasy VI, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Metroid and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. It's a surprise though, that a few other great games, like Banjo-Kazooie, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Metal Gear Solid, Star Fox 64 and many others didn't make the cut.

We would have hoped that our Token Black Death guy was gonna vote for Kanjo-Bazooie, but now that's too late. The winner here is Super Smash Bros. Brawl and everyone that has a Wii or planning to get one, don't forget to have a working internet connection, share your Friend Codes, and join the rest of the Brawlers for some fun matches of joygasm.

Comment
This game came out of nowhere, it was requested for many years, and thanks to a few slip-ins from beta testers, and a OFLC rating around the summertime, it was finally announced. One prank picture later, the actual magazine scans and video trailers for the game came and what it showed was hard to express in words. Returning to the roots of the 8-bitiness, Capcom might have something great going on here. This game ended up meeting every Mega Man fan's expectations. The 8 new robot masters (this includes Splash Woman, a female robot master), the very fun and inspiring intro cutscene, the very useful weapons, the challenges list that gave lots of replay value, and different kinds of DLC content (Endless Attack and Proto Man Mode being some of the favorites).

Yea, this game had it all and it keeps the player wanting to play the game more and more without so much stopping. When the game gets tough and challenging, you just go back in and try and try again until you manage to beat it. It's so addictive and very satisfying when you finally beat that tough segment of the game. The music is also a great asset to this game. Here you can enjoy songs like "We're the Robots", "Maze of Death", "Flash in the Dark" and roughly 30 other tracks that have all been composed by the Inti Creates sound team, along with the development of the game itself. There's a favorite song for everyone here.

High up on the award list we can see very satisfying games and also classic gaming goodness returning in remade forms, like Kirby Super Star Ultra, Chrono Trigger DS and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Members were worried about how some games would turn out when they were announced and once they came out, and hoping that the games wouldn't become big flops, but Sonic Unleashed and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia were well-accepted into our hearts and turned out to be great games in the end. Speaking of returning to the roots of classic gaming goodness, one would have hoped that Wario Land: Shake It! was gonna gain more votes, but it's good that it was mentioned at least.

There's no question about it though, thanks to Keiji Inafune, Game of the Year is Mega Man 9! Recreating childhood memories might be the most craziest idea that Inafking, Capcom and Inti has ever thought about bringing to a gaming market of this graphics-hungry generation. And you know what? They kick all kinds of behinds for it!

Yea, what can we say about this? Even after 20 years, Rockman 2 is still the game every Rockman fan talks about today and it's also the most memorable game ever. Following close behind it is Rockman X, a more mature series that Capcom brought up in the early 90's. Sharing third place is Rockman 3 and Rockman 9. ZX is more favored than ZX Advent somehow. After that, it's a mix of all kinds of games from different series. Rockman X5, Rockman Zero 3, ZX Advent and Rockman DASH 2 all share the fifth spot on the list. After that, there are a mix of other games, hoping to stay as high up on the list as possible. Interesting enough, it's good that some interesting games made it here, like say Rockman World 5 and Super Adventure Rockman. The winner here though is Rockman 2 and this game is always on the high end of success for a lot of fans.

Rockman EXE 3 first came out in December 2002, with a Black edition a couple of months later. This was the first game in the EXE/Battle Network series that came out in 2 different versions. The game came out in the English regions with different colors, a Blue and a White version, and that would cause confusions for a few fans on a first glance. The English White version was Japan's Black version. To compare the version between the English and Japanese versions, just a quick check in the menu screens would be all it takes to find out which is which.

Rockman EXE 3 was the first game in the series to split the Battle Chips in different classes called Standard Chips, Mega Chips and Giga Chips, along with a few hidden chips and classes. Power Up items was replaced with Navi Customizer, that let you piece blocks together on a plate to completely customize Rockman anyway you wanted, as long as the blocks could fit on the plate to begin with. A couple of bosses you get to fight against is Flashman, Beastman, Bubbleman, Desertman, Plantman, Flameman, Copyman, Bowlman, Mistman, Drillman, Forte and Proto, who is the last boss called Alpha in the English versions. A few optional and secret bosses includes Gutsman, Kingman, Blues, Metalman, Darkman, Yamatoman, Serenade, Forte GS and Punk. Punk is exclusive to the Black/White version and his chip can be picked up legally in the Japanese version.

Right under Rockman EXE 3 on the list is Rockman EXE 2 and Rockman EXE 4. The first Shooting Star/Star Force game is right under them. Stepping down a few games, one can see the very awesome sidescroller games Rockman EXE Transmission and Rockman EXE WS made it here too. Too bad they aren't as well-appreciated as the rest of the games. Shooting Star Rockman 3 is dead last together with Rockman EXE WS. But the best in both these series counted together is Rockman EXE 3.

Comment
In very late 1997, back when it was all the rage to start installing boot chips into people's Playstations (yarr-harr-harr for pirates), Capcom decided to release a new reinvented version of Rockman, called Rockman DASH. It had a different name way back before it was gonna be released, which was Rockman NEO, not to be mixed up with the flash animation (we love you Andrew Dickman~).

The game took place "In a world covered by endless water..." and in a time where only a few islands existed and energy sources were very limited. Quantum refractors was found and used for powering up machineries. They acted as energy source and their shards were also used for currency called Zenny (traditional Capcom name for currency). The main goal for everyone was to find the Mother Lode, a source of infinite power which was rumored to be able to fill the need for energy in one swoop. The ones that tried to excavating ruins to find refractors were called Digouters (Diggers in English) and they had assistance from other people, called Spotters, who would help Digouters to checking for energy readings and finding lost treasures.

The game starts with Rockman Volnutt, a Digouter who tries to escape from a ruin after picking up a refractor. After getting rid of the Reaverbots that blocked his way, he manages to get out of the ruins with the airship called Flutter, run by his Spotter who happens to be Roll Caskett. Here we got to meet more characters, like Roll's grandfather Barrel, and Data who is a mysterious monkey that talks in gibberish only Rockman can understand. The Flutter suddenly gets engine problems and crash lands on Kattelox Island, and this is where Rock and the gang gets to stay for the rest of the game. Along their way to try and fix their ship and find hidden treasure, they meet the air pirate family known as the Bonnes. The leader of the group is Teisel. Teisel's sibling is Tron and she is the mechanical genius that builds all the robots for the group. She has her own group of minions called Kobuns (Servbots in English), who are all unique in their very own way, counting "more" than 40 of them. The last member in the Bonne family is Bon, who only says one word, which is "Babu!" but the Bonnes can understand him perfectly fine.

When Rock runs through more ruins and enemy bosses, he eventually stumbles across the Main Gate, which holds the very last boss called Rockman Juno, who is a "Third Class Bureaucratic Model" from Eden, a space station that orbits above the planet. He is accidentily awakened from his sleep, calling Rock "Trigger" and claims that the people on the island needs to be purged (executed, deleted, killed) so it can be controlled properly. Juno calls the people Carbons, and at a point, he realize that "Trigger" suffers from memory loss, and decides to trap him in an electric field so he won't interfere with Juno's plans. The Bonnes overheard everything and manages to rescue Rockman and roots for him while he chases for Juno. After a long fight, Juno admits defeat and dies, because he is inferior to Rockman, who is a "First Class Purifier Model". Juno transferred his backup memory into the Eden systems before he died, and the "Carbon Reinitialization Program" was gonna be executed in a couple of minutes. Data shows up and gives new orders to the system: Stopping the program and deleting Juno's data from Eden. Data explains to Rockman that he has Rockman's Previous Memories tucked inside him. Rock put his memory inside Data many years ago, so the Eden systems wouldn't be able to touch it. Data is gonna bring Rock's memories back again when time comes. Rock is now a hero, the Casketts repaired the Flutter, and they set off on new adventures. The Bonnes follows shortly after with a huge refractor picked up from the Main Gate.

Anyways, following Rockman DASH on the list is Rockman DASH 2 with 17 points, and Tron ni Kobun (The Misadventures of Tron Bonne) with even lesser points. Worth mentioning is the cellphone-exclusive game called Rockman DASH: Great Quest on 5 Islands, which only had a Japanese release, but graphics and gameplay is similar to Rockman DASH 2. The first Rockman DASH game kicked its doggy hiney all the way up to the first spot. Poor Paprika...

Rockman ZX Advent came out in the middle of 2007 on the Nintendo DS, and just like the last game in the series, it let you play as two different characters, the first one was Grey who is awakened from a laboratory, and the second one was Ashe who is part of a Hunter organization. They both eventually get to inherit the powers of the Live Metal (Bio Metal in English) called Model A, which let them transform into other creatures and wield two guns with aiming laser ability. In the game, under their life meter, one would notice that Grey is a Re (Repliroid) and Ashe is a Hu (Human).

On their journey through the game, they meet two mysterious characters that wants to exterminate other Live Metals in a "Game of Destiny" to decide who is the Ultimate Rockman on the planet. Since Grey and Ashe goes different paths, they meet different characters. Grey meets Pandora who is an obedient and quiet girl, while Ashe meets Prometheus who is a sadistic and cruel guy. To prevent them to get any further, they fight boss enemies called Falseroids (Psuedoroids in English), and these are the creatures that they can transform into once they are defeated, and they are all used in different ways. That's not all. They get to face other users of Live Metal. These Live Metals stores the character data of 4 Neo Arcadian generals from the past. These users of Live Metal are Helios (Aeolus in English) who has the powers of Harpuia, Thetis who has the powers of Leviathan, Atlas who has the powers of Fefnir and Siarnaq who has the powers of Phantom.

Also halfway through the game, Grey and Ashe meets the old heroes of the first Rockman ZX game, Vent and Aile, who is now part of the defensive organization called Guardians, lead by Prairie, who is a girl that was there when Ragnarok broke apart at the end of Rockman Zero 4. She is a (roughly) 100 year old repliroid who had a crush on Girouette, Vent and Aile's old master, because he resembled a blonde heroic red warrior she knew once. Inside some ruins, Grey gets to meet Aile, while Ashe meets Vent, in a fight against their Live Metal X and Z through a Double Rock-On.

At the beginning of the game, Grey/Ashe gets a call from the current ruling leaders of an organization called Legions. These leaders are in turn called Sage Trinity and they are Master Thomas, Master Albert and Master Mikhail. Originally, they were humans, but they extended their lives through cybernetics. They are named after the doctors from the Classic Rockman series, Thomas Light, Albert Wily and Mikhail Cossack. Master Albert betrays the two sages and bring forth the powers of Model V (Dr. Vile, known as Dr. Weil in English) and wants to cause destruction to the world, by bringing forth the powers of Ouroboros. Master Albert created Model A and Grey to be a heir to the "Game of Destiny" if something happens to Albert. Albert also states that Ashe is a distant descendant of his, from a family before he became one of the Sage Trinity. After Albert is defeated and Ouroboros destroyed, Thomas didn't quite agree of Albert's methods of world order, and decides that "This World Needs To Be Reset". Mikhail is shocked and horrified, and that's where the game ends.

On the awards list, Rockman Zero 3 and Rockman ZX shares the second place. Turns out Omega and Dr. Vile (Rockman Zero 3) was just a few points away from beating Rockman ZX Advent. The rest of the Rockman Zero series falls a bit lower on the list. But for this moment, Rockman ZX Advent is the winner.

Comment
The first Rockman X came out very late in 1993 for the Super Famicom (SNES) and along with Super Metroid that showed up a few months later, it turned to be a classic golden gem for everyone who had the game system at the time. The X series was a more mature themed game series than the classic series that started a couple of years before, and the first thing you would notice is how the music is more adrenaline-kicking and rocktastic than ever before, not to mention that the game took place in a different era where humans and humanoid robots known as Repliroids co-existed with each other.

But before this was even possible, an archaeologist known as Dr. Cain found a robotic research facility deep inside some ruins. It used to be run by legendary robot designer Dr. Thomas Light. A capsule was found, and inside it was a highly advanced robot, something the world has never seen before. This robot was called Rockman X, and had human-like intelligence and emotions. Dr. Can was amazed by Dr. Light's designs, so he decides to bring X and a few of Light's notes with him and study X. Some months later, Dr. Cain created the first replicated android, or Repliroid for short, a robot that could think, feel, learn and grow just like humans.

A few years later, the designs were standardized and they were all mass-produced. What Dr. Cain didn't know however, was the risks that came along with it. Thanks to the free will of these robots, criminal activity started to rise. These "malfunctioned" robots were called Irregulars (Mavericks in English). When these robots were too hard to handle, the governments stepped in and with advice from Dr. Cain, an elite military police organization known as the Irregular Hunters were formed. These Hunters would catch or destroy any Repliroid that was a threat to humans, as well as help with disaster recovery and other tasks.

Dr. Cain designed a very special Repliroid to become the leader of the Irregular Hunters, which was said to be immune to any defects or other abruptions that cause a Repliroid to become an Irregular. This Repliroid was called Sigma. Sigma was the leader of the Hunters for a couple of years, but later decided to revolt against the humans, by taking a couple of Irregular Hunters with him and inhabit themselves on a secluded island far away. Because Sigma thinks the humans only slows down the growth and potential of Repliroids, he decides to cause a big destruction to eliminate them. The only Irregular Hunter left on the good side is Zero, who was part of Unit 17 and was created by Dr. Wily many years ago. Because X felt guilty being part of a design creating Repliroids and Irregulars alike, decides to join Zero and stop Sigma no matter the cost.

Rockman X is a run-and-gun style action game. The game begins with a Introduction Stage that takes place on a Highway before being sent out to fight against 8 Irregulars that are selectable on a screen. The Highway stage introduces a new character called VAVA (Vile in English) who wants to prove that he's more powerful than X, and uses a ride armor to protect himself. When X is on his last energy bar, Zero rescues him by smacking the ride armor's arm to pieces. VAVA escapes, while X and Zero is still off to search for Sigma. Unlike the Classic Rockman games, this game lets you upgrade X by finding Life Ups (normally called Heart Tanks) that raises the health bar for X, and there are also Sub Tanks that lets X store energy inside them whenever he needs to refill his energy again.

Also, this game introduces hidden capsules that contains upgrades for X to use in his fight against world threats. A holographic message from Dr. Light tells that X is the world's only hope and with these upgrades, it's possible for X to overcome any obstacles. These upgrades are installed on his Helmet, Arms, Boots and Body, and they all work in different ways. This is the first game where a Rockman can use boots to dash and jump farther than ever before, not to mention being able to use the Helmet to crush blocks above him, and charge up all of his Sub Weapons and unleash their fullest potentials. X would also be able to learn a Street Fighter move called the Hadoken once he's fully upgraded. The game features some very memorable bosses and music tracks, and they all are Launcher Octopuld, Icy Penguigo, Burnin' Noumander, Boomer Kuwanger, Sting Chameleao, Spark Mandriller, Storm Eagleed and Armor Armarge. Even today, the game is played and loved by every Rockman fan out there.

Following that love, is Rockman X4 which introduces story in the shape of animated cutscenes, and the ability to play as both X or Zero with different story but same goal. Zero meets Iris and Colonel, part of a military force called Repliforce. Iris can't stand how Repliroids always has to fight each other, so she sacrifices herself by using a source of evil power to battle Zero with. It destroyed her eventually, and with her last words of wanting world peace, she fades away and Zero is in complete anger and screams "WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOR?!" before finding out he is a creation of Dr. Wily from the Classic Rockman series.

Right behind these two games is Rockman X8, Rockman X2, Rockman X5 and Rockman X3, plus the game that introduced the animated video called "The Day of Sigma", Irregular Hunter X. Dead last on the list is everyone's worst nightmare, Rockman X7, that could very well BURN, BURN, BURN TO THE GROUND as much as the fans prefers to. Good work, Rockman X! You are the best X game ever!

Comment
Keiji Inafune, the long-time designer and father figure of Rockman, had to experiment with the ideas of the first Rockman game. The ability to be able to select any level you want from the beginning and win weapons from bosses proved to be a fun way to revisit the game, over and over again. The first game was a bit tough for many players and there wasn't any ways to continue from your last spot, so after one enemy submission contest and a bit of bugfixes, new music and design enhancements, Rockman 2 was born.

Dr. Light was the in-game creator of Rock Light, who would later become a Super Fighting Robot when Dr. Wily, an old-time friend of Dr. Light, was too jealous of Dr. Light's success of bringing new working force into the human society. Dr. Wily decided to steal Dr. Light's creations, called Robot Masters, to cause destruction, but Rock didn't like that, and asked Dr. Light if he can be rebuilt so he can stop his brothers. After the Robot Masters were defeated and Dr. Wily stopped, Dr. Wily came back a few months later with a new bunch of robots that he built himself. This injustice must be stopped once again, and that's when Rock decided to stand ontop of a skyscraper building with shiny glimmering hair before heading off to stop Dr. Wily's new robots.

The second game in the series is the game that every single Rockman fan knows about and should have played through at least once. It features the most known Robot Master bosses in the series, like Metalman, Airman, Bubbleman, Quickman, Clashman, Flashman, Heatman and Woodman. It also introduces a variety of different stages to visit, as well as new traps never seen before. Most commonly known is Quickman's Death Lasers, which could be stopped by either running past them without stopping, or using a Time Stopper gained from Flashman. The most inspiring music that everyone is singing to, happens to be the very first Wily Stage theme. It's one of those most emotionally thought-out compositions ever made, along with other smash hits like Woodman Stage, Metalman Stage, Quickman Stage and Airman Stage.

This is also the game with the most internet videos, parodies and artworks ever. Most of these sensations are found on sites like nicovideo.jp, Youtube, Newgrounds and other fun sites with Rockman humor. You will find fun songs like Okkusenman, Airman ga Taosenai (Airman can't be defeated), and different kinds of Robot Master videos by Hyadain, like Metalman (is not a dentist), Flashman, Quickman, Clashman and Bubbleman, and there are probably more fun videos or internet sensations to be made.

Falling right behind Rockman 2 on the awards list is Rockman 3, Rockman 9 and Rockman 7, which all happens to be well-accepted games in their own way, especially Rockman 7 for being on the Super Famicom (SNES) and introduced new characters, different ways to use boss weapons and a place for Rock to trade bolts for items. Rockman 3 introduced Rock's canine companion Rush into a gameplay where extra support was needed to get past the most toughest obstacles, and let's not forget that whistling shaded scarfed goodness Blues that would pop up at every other spot to fight against Rock in different areas. Different kinds of Rockman games in the chronology falls down a bit further in the awards list, and surprisingly, Rockman World 5 and Super Adventure Rockman made it to the list too. We get to say thank you, Rockman 2, for always bringing us a very awesome gameplay experience everytime we pick up the controller.

Comment
There is no surprise here, the most preferred weapon in any Rockman game happens to be the one from Rockman 2, the Metal Blade. The Metal Blade lets you throw a sharp blade in 8 different directions and you could even throw the blades while you were airborne. It was very effective against all kinds of Robot Masters, like Metalman who could be killed with 2 blades (1 if you play the English versions), Bubbleman, Flashman, and Woodman if you stood very close to his Leaf Shield. The Metal Blade also has a lot of ammunition so it would last a long while, but there would usually be more energy available when you destroy enemies, so this is a fun weapon to stick with in long stretches.

On second place, we have the Jewel Satellite, which to a lot of fans is the most broken shield in the Rockman series. You are able to summon it and it will always stick with you even when you walk or jump around with it. Any enemy or other projectiles that is weak enough will be destroyed by it in a whim, so there's a good thing to stick with this shield as much as you can, especially if you focus on a Time Attack or All Clear ranking, but if you pause the game or walk to the next screen through a ladder or other means, it will disappear, so use it wisely.

The next weapon is Zero's Z-Saber, the sharp knife that can cleave through anything, as one might notice in the Rockman Zero series. Black Hole Bomb, Rock Buster and Rolling Shield falls shortly behind. What is surprising though, is that weapons from Rockman X: Command Mission made it to the list, and also a battle chip from Rockman EXE 4. But the winner is Metal Blade, and there's no stopping the destructive 8 direction force.

Dr. Wily's most long-lived creation, Zero, is the winner on the list, followed by the Super Fighting Robot himself, Rockman. The fangirls all wants to undress Axl, while the other fangirls and fanboys fawns over Roll. X and Blues are pretty high up on the cool list too. Aile, Forte and Dr. Wily tried their best also. It's a shame that Tango and Nana didn't get high up on the list to be appreciated more. Not to mention that Cinnamon didn't make it to the list at all, poor girl. Marino is hot enough for the guys to get a bite on, while Thetis made it just in time for the girls to nibble on his delicious shota prideness. But don't let all that craziness distract you, Zero. You got the gold trophy here. Be proud.

Comment
With so many votes to "Splashtastic~", it means that the appearance of a female Robot Master won most Rockman fans over. It's not everyday you see female bosses in a Rockman game, and most people seem to like that. She sings her way right into our hearts. The ending with Blues's appearance falls shortly behind, as well as the little segment where Rock shows Wily all those times that he defeated Wily. It renders all the defeated scenes from Rockman 1-8 and Rockman & Forte in delicious 8-bit goodness. After that, Dr. Wily's Swiss Bank Account 19-871-217 (which decrypts the release date of the first Rockman game on December 17th, 1987) stayed alongside "Rock shows Wily a video of his past defeats" on a third place.

Next up, the ability to play as Blues, the cute little credits pictures of each Robot Masters doing their thing, and the Trailer announcement for the game shares 4th place. Fabulous Jewelman stayed on a 5th place, along with Fakeman and his stage, the Final Fight against Dr. Wily himself, and some other fun moments. Eco Fighter means defeating a Robot Master for the first time and with the Rock Buster, so that one was a random vote for this award. Being inked by a octopus enemy made it to the awards list too. But the winner for a photoshoot is Splashwoman, and she gives everyone a kiss.

Everyone loves Rockman 9 so much, they decided to vote on the one topic that gives them the most support. That topic was "RPM's Rockman 9 Source Gathering (Spoilers)~", and in that topic, you would find very basic information about the game, including the way the game's menu is designed. You also find small info about the Items you can buy from Roll, which order you should beat bosses with, and what colors every weapon has. The most interesting part of the topic is the Boss Damage Chart, and it's the first ever (other sites has been proven to copy it) chart for the game, mostly compiled by Vixy, but with support from other RPM members. Vixy also made sure that the text script for the game was available to read, especially useful for the fans who owns the Japanese version.

After that, a lot of Zan's well-written timelines landed on different spots on the list along with "Computer Problem Thread", "[READ FIRST!] The Rules of RPM" and "Cryptozoology in the Zero series...". The RPM Revival and IRC Channel topics falls down a bit on the list too, but it's surprising to see that people liked the Kingdom Hearts thread. Even more surprising is "[Original Rockman] OMG TEH MOONSPEAK!!", which for the moment only has Japanese names for Rockman 9 Robot Masters, but it might slowly grow someday. "What Do You Want to See in a ZX3?" and "Bubble Lead, or Bubble Lead?" were also very interesting topics when they were still active, and "MM Fanprojects" is still being filled up with interesting Rockman game projects and ROM hacks.

"Nintendo Fall Conference 2008 Thread" existed on the last forum before it crashed, and the "Rebirth of the Rockman-Themed Stolen *Bleep* Thread!!" topic is loved by many fanart lovers on the site, but they should remember to keep giving credit to the artists before posting art.

Comment
The winning topic can be either funny or just dull to read. The topic was made by vile mk4 and a screenshot was posted (this one) where the forum tells vile mk4 this message: "Shouldn't You Be Going To Bed Soon, vile mk4". A shallow, yellow, sleeping Vile screams "SAD!! NO TOO EARLIE" and the annoying part is that it just HAD to be posted, but luckily, Protoman Blues was nearby and locked the topic. Next up, Noboka's "The Manly Prince Pageant" and Kyouya Garyuu's "Whatcha gonna do, RPM?" got 4 points, and Acid's poll-tastic "Divine Kaiser of RPM Election thread." got 3 points.

And with no surprise, a very annoying member called irregularhuntersz has 2 topics that made it to the list. "Anger Management" and a topic that we don't know the exact name for that was about child pornography. First of all, irregularhuntersz was shocked over people finding his sister attractive and um, "hittable". irregularhuntersz wanted some insight on this matter, but ended up getting "offended" in a way only RPM knows best how to do. irregularhuntersz classed everyone on RPM as pedophiles because he thinks RPM is OK with that stuff, which it really isn't. His bad trolling, complete idiocy and lack of spell check drove everyone insane and he got one warning. One thing led to another, and "Anger Management" was made, where he notice some people here had real problem keeping their cool when meeting people with different opinions. He thought it would help if the members discussed the issues openly so they could be "recovered" from their corruptive anger (whatever that means). The members he mentioned was DominicanZero, Hitomi Agada, MetaKirby and SakuraLeic, and also mentioning that Sub Tank had real hypersexuality issues. He was later renamed analhunterSZ by the staff members, and since no one shared any popcorn (at that time), the topic was locked and deemed the biggest FAILURE on the forum.

There might also been a topic called "..." somewhere, but no one has mentioned what it was about, but it made it to the award list anyway. The topic where the fake Rockman 9 Screenshot by BlackBeltDude was posted made it to the award list also. Amazingly, "The Studly King of the Community Mr. Galaxy Man Competition" made it here too, but that topic is actually funny instead of annoying. Oh well.

When the last forum crashed because it had too much MySQL data entries inside it, there was no proper way to bring ALL the data back, especially the newest posts and topics posted around the summertime and fall 2008, so the sad news came up, deciding to "Purge the Carbons" and "This World Needs To Be Reset". To keep it short, the forum had to go on a clean slate and everyone had to post new (and old) topics all over again. Thanks to that, this topic was voted the Saddest Topic for this award.

On the old forum, in the topic "See ya later!/Welcome back!", Sub Tank was fed up with some drama or something else unknown, so Subby decided to leave, and that made everyone cry and it landed on a 2nd place on the list, along with Don LaFontaine's death in 3rd. TheDivine's "First Time" got a 3rd place too, but with all due respect, the contents of that topic shouldn't be talked about here. The Ecchi topic, Sky Child's artwork topic and the "Marry Your Favorite Character Online" topic landed on a 4th place. Funny thing is that after a couple of funny and sad "they have no life" things going on in that last topic, Vixy decided she would add herself to that website and see who would be interested. There were plenty of members wanting a share of the Vixylicious.

No one really explained why "Metalwario64's Art Thread" was added. Maybe we will never know. Also on the "See ya later!/Welcome back!" topic, Protoman Blues had to tell everyone that Wanderer was gonna have to leave for a while, and that made a couple of members sad too and so, it landed on the list. The winner for Saddest Topic however, is "Another RPM Revival~", and we hope that a topic like this won't happen in a couple of years from now.

Comment
There's really only one way to explain the winner here...

Jericho: "Thread of the motherfucking forevah. XD"

ROCKMAN PUNCHOUT MEMORIES was originally made by Acid on the old forum, and it had forum members that just had to be pranked about. The characters we saw here was Repliroid20XX's Novaman, VirusChris, Sakura Leic and Flame on the Beginner Cup. Dr. Wily II, Jericho, Sky Child and Tsuyoshi was on the National Cup (But you have already died!). Ninja Lou, Hitomi Agada, DZ and PB on the World Cup, and finally, Quickman, Vixy, Sub Tank and Mr A on the Special Cup. All the funny jokes and one-liners from the Punch-Out!! series was changed and parodied to fit with every member someway somehow, so this alone got so many votes, it won the Funniest Topic award.

"Random Picture Thread Go! (56k, lol)" got a 2nd place and Protoman Blues's "The Galaxy of Rockman Perfect Memories" got 3rd place. Sub Tank made a topic to make fun of a troll member who wanted to blow the heads off some RPM members, so another court case had to take place, and this was thanks to the "RPM LAW AND ORDER SPECIAL INTERNET UNIT" topic, where justice prevailed and court was adjourned. The topic is to be revived in a moment and reminds us why Sub Tank is still the bringer of laughter even today. On the same note, Sub Tank made another topic earlier than that called "SUBTANK'S ARTIFICIAL GIRL 3 REVIEW THREAD EXTRAVAGANZA!", where Sub Tank created a bunch of RPM female members to have some fun with, like Sakura, Hitomi and Vixy. Along the way to sexiness, Sub Tank would try as best as possible to win some honies against the evil PS3 grill corporation, donning only a wooden floating Wienerschnitzel. In the end, Vixy ruined the topic by posting her own character creations, but respectfully, Sub Tank didn't mind and continued the adventure for hotness. But it ended with a lock and everyone cried.

Protoman Blues's "Rockman Perfect Musical: The Musical For Everlasting Peace" topic is still alive and well on the forum, and it cheerfully sings a couple of heartwarming lyrics for all the RPM members who deserve the love. "The Parody Lyrics Thread of Fun!" is a topic where members can write their own lyrics and express themselves or others that way. "CJ999 - SEXY TIME! ( RATED R )" explains a wonderful time where traditional lemonade stands is rivaled by... Paizuri? Eh yea, this topic ended up by letting the other RPM girls draw themselves in the same sexy situations, and it soon went to something higher than R-rating after all the chaos.

Sidetracking from the perversions for a bit, "The Map of RPM" was also voted in this category, thank god. This projects started on an old Introduction topic where someone pointed out that "you are here" on the forum. This gave Vixy an idea, so she started to draw a sign that said "you are here" and she drew some houses around that sign too, and from there, she let everyone on the forum add their own houses or environments to the very small map, which later grew into insane sizes later on.

There are a bunch of topics that we don't know the exact names for, but they made it to the list anyway. Among them is "Dr. Light is a Douchebag", the roleplay topic "Gloop Glorp" by Sub Tank which first featured a lonely slime enemy that had to be killed by some RPM members, and "Tsuyoshi's Pantsless Adventure" which stars Tsuyoshi on his quest to find his lost pants in a traditional crazy "Dude, where's my car?" antic.

It's a shame that the topic called "MY SPRITE COMIC" by Sub Tank, Acid and Vixy never made it on the list, because they collaborated together in a fun way. But the winner here is Acid's ROCKMAN PUNCHOUT MEMORIES, who punched his way to victory with one blow!

DominicanZero knows so much about anime that he even has posters and figurines of his favorite animes plastered all over his room, not to mention being part of an anime community of his own, and also attending plenty of anime conventions in his neighbourhood too. As proof of his knowledge, look at his big collection of kissing avatars. It shows how many romantic scenes he has captures to ease his loving heart. If you want some recommendations on anime, he is the one you should ask, along with Saber and Nekomata, since they also share their own kind of anime smartness.

Vixy loves the cuteness, adorableness and comedy parts of anime, and a few ecchi moments too, so if you share her ideas and thoughts, then by all means, "have some fun with her". Dr. Wily II, Satoryu and Setsuna F. Seiei made it very high on the list too for their own views on anime, whether it's for nostalgia sake, cuteness or mecha involved. Acid wants blood-pumping action and good-looking artworks on anime (that's what the rumors say), Akamaru and Archer is very knowledgable on anime with a serious tone, like Fate/Stay Night and maybe even Code Geass? Aresian and Noboka shares knowledge for romantic loveable anime, and Sonic is so into Haruhi Suzumiya that it's almost frightening.

Vixy wins this awards because she has a big passion for video games, the systems they are played on and the companies behind them. She gives descriptive information about all kinds of devices and tools that focuses on video games, and she has no problem with stating a few release dates for a system or a game. She even helps out with how to beat stages and bosses on mostly every game she knows or played, so if you want the best knowledge around, give Vixy a try. She's mostly interested in imported games from Japan, and that's where the biggest passion is.

Next on the list is Hypershell, Protoman Blues and Viewtiful Ben, who in their on fun ways express their gaming knowledge, often through debates and funny joking moments. Nekomata, Jericho, Satoryu and Acid made it to the list for their on-the-spot humor and relevant game memories to spice it all up with. On rare moments, you can see other members on the list who fills in the blanks whenever there's more knowledge to share, or even more fun laughter to spice up the discussion.

There's no question about it: Zan is a walking Rockman library. Zan knows practically everything about the series of Rockman, and likes to put together timelines that links the series together without the least confusions. Whether it is about the Elf Wars, Sigma's rebellion, R.O.C.K. System or even how the Reaverbots came to existance in the world that is covered by endless water, Zan is truly the one to ask about anything Rockman when (and if) there's no one else around.

Vixy knows pretty much everything about Rockman too, but Zan wins over her, because Zan doesn't mind writing walls-of-text to prove his point, while Vixy prefers things to be quick and to-the-point. That doesn't mean that she isn't smart about Rockman, oh no. Just like Zan, she gladly help members when they wants to know a few things about Rockman series, especially in the Japanese area, or very specific gameplay methods of beating the games. She has also helped Zan a few times, although Zan never seems to admit it. Vixy loves to actually play the games and beat them without that much difficulties and her favorite series of discussion is Classic, DASH, X, Zero and ZX. The Classic and DASH series (especially in a speed run type of way) is where she excels at the most. She is also very very picky about how a Rockman game is supposed to run and can't stand a Rockman Game Engine that isn't properly programmed or visual aspects of a game that doesn't look right, but she gets used to it after a while.

If you are out for support on Japanese translations or direct source book materials, marshmallow man might be the guy you want to give a call, "IF" he has time for it. Over the past few months, marshmallow man has even supported Zan countless times to correct some very minor inconsistencies on the Rockman sources gathered over the years, just to finally state them as proper facts. Hypershell is also a wonderful person to talk about Rockman games, especially on the sidescrolling games and also the Rockman DASH games (same area as Vixy), not to mention that he has helped the community with a few hacks to enjoy some games in different ways than before. Protoman Blues and Saber both share the same score on the awards list, but for some differences. Protoman Blues is knowledgeable at the Classic Series, while Saber is awesome at the X and Zero series.

If you have been part of the Rockman community for many many years, you might have heard about DominicanZero, Gauntlet101010 and Rodrigo Shin already. If you haven't, for shame. DominicanZero has been seen on many sites like Planet MM and MM Network, and has been helpful with providing gaming skills for the Rockman X games, if nothing else is mentioned. Gauntlet101010 runs his own website known to everyone as The Mechanical Maniacs, where some of the most obscure Rockman sources show up first, if not somewhere else. Gauntlet101010 is the smartest when it comes to the Classic series games, not to mention some Pirate and Asian/Taiwan games, like Rockman Strategy and Rockman Gold Empire. Rodrigo Shin is respected for his collective knowledge at the Classic and X series, not to mention bringing the Brazilian comic called "New Adventures of Megaman" into the community.

Fxeni likes to talk about the sidescrolling games, Robert Oakes the same plus that his spriting skills is amazing, Rock Miyabi has to be one of the biggest Rockman Manga collectors in the community, Satoryu is the local speed runner for Rockman games, and Sky Child make sure that the love of Rockman and Robot Masters stays as fabulous as always.

TheDivine is voted "Most likely to be banned", but he has behaved and is very respectable for posting news whenever the time is right. Even if that's the case, members decided things to be different, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Next on the list is FatherSaintPaul and Nexus, and after that, it's Aresian, Gaia, Lunchebox and Nekomata. There is a problem here though. One of these members don't exist on RPM, and Aresian is a RPM Purifier. Some members just won't learn that what's in the past is in the past. Let it go.

TheDivine won this award, but it's hard to see the annoyance here, unless it's directed at specific members. There's nothing much to say here really, but a win is a win, and it belongs to TheDivine. Next on the list is a few hand-picked ones like Mirby, Nexus, Gaia, Setsuna F. Seiei, vile mk4 and Splash. By guessing, the other members were probably picked either as a joke or personal dislike. No judging anyone here, but that's just a thought.

Alright, this is a respectful and loving award, because there are some members that just doesn't seem to gain enough spotlight on the community. The winner, CephiYumi, is one of those loving members. She came to the site only a few months ago, and slowly grew as part of our community thanks to her cute and adorable drawings. However, CephiYumi tends to sometimes look down on herself in a shy way and wonders if she's a cool enough girl for everyone to like. With so many votes, it's pretty obvious that people wants to see more CephiYumi shine across the community board, so stay strong, and keep doing what you do best, CephiYumi. There are many other members that were voted as underrated, and they're all great in different ways. Most of them are even good at drawing, so appreciate them more, and they will share their love back.

Protoman Blues is the member that always shows a colorful display of happy-go-lucky fun mood and likes to infect the other members with the same happiness. He keeps boasting about his egotastic coolness and although it may get way over his head sometimes, no one really hates him for it, because being as socialized as he is, he tends to always show his colorful mind and suggestions to bring a happy mood to others around him. Nekomata shows the same kind of energy, but against some less unfortunate idiots, they get a sledge-hammer slammed onto their nuts. But to the right people, Nekomata shares her love as much as she can. The rest of the members are all colorfully flamboyant in their own ways, and they cheerfully express their happiness whenever they can.

This member likes to mock people in a sly way. Nekomata won this one with a couple of points more than Acid. Nekomata is sarcastic out of love though, so don't feel threatened by her posts, because deep inside, she really likes everyone, especially members that share her interests. Acid and Sub Tank lands on the 2nd and 3rd place, while some other veteran members are right under them with different levels of sarcasm.

It's a tie! There's no way that members don't recognize these happy faces. Whenever Protoman Blues and Vixy walks around on the forum, everyone gladly says hello without any clueless thoughts. Both of them shares their love with everyone and the feeling is just... wow! One side is cool and awesome, the other is cute and adorable. Fused together, they bring so much confidence and comfort to the members on the forum, knowing that they feel right at home when talking to both Protoman Blues and Vixy.

Another lovely member who is well-known is Sky Child, who thanks to her fun humor, cute charms and amazing artwork has won the hearts of many members. DominicanZero is known for his bashing attitude and mild swearing, but that's why we love DZ, don't we? Sub Tank is best known for quick-to-the-point humor and boobs. Lots of it. Everyone else is well known in their own way, either through their knowledge on some topics, or for their artworks.

A helpful member is always the one that is supportive and gives members what they ask for. With a big generosity and kind heart, Vixy gladly helps anyone who wants help to find something, or if they want to let something off their heart. She is a very caring psychologist who just wants the happiness of others, and she doesn't mind sharing her thoughts and mind on how to make life a little better. There are also moments where she even gives hints on where to find things to download or buy. She also helps recommending things to do, like playing a game or watching an anime, or even go outside for a fun activity. Anything you have in your heart, it's alright to ask Doctor Vixy for support, as she might be there for you when life is harsh. DominicanZero and Protoman Blues helps out in the same way, and in their own fun humorous ways too. Everyone else are also helpful on rare moments, especially in specific discussions or topics.

This member is someone that no one can hate, because this member bring big amounts of love to everyone. Vixy is the most lovable member and her adorable cuteness and bubbly personality proves it. She always finds ways to show love to everyone around her and she tries her best at it. She likes to give big snuggly hugs and cuddles and who can say no to a very loving person like that?

Sky Child also gives love that is to be accepted by everyone. She is loved for her cool and crazy ideas, and funny posts. She also draws divinely. Protoman Blues and CephiYumi also shows love as much as they can, especially by their funny posts and cute drawings. Everyone is loveable in many ways, and if you notice the topics they post in, you can see why.

When this duo plans something funny together, then everyone will laugh. Acid & Sub Tank really gives out all their comedy material and brings it with a huge bang, especially in the shape of hilarilous collaborated drawings. They work the best when they hijack other member topics. When something looks interesting, they back things up with their funny antics and the laughter never stops.

Protoman Blues & Ninja Lou are funny because they like to bash each other in real life with their own crazy antics, and sometimes it ends up in a saber fight. Akira & Vixy might be funny for very specific humor, most likely in the shape of cute mouse-drawn comics.

That doesn't mean that fart jokes can't be fun either and that's where "Sub Tank's Left Hand & Sub Tank's Right Arm Pit" comes in to stink us away in laughter.

Surprisingly, Protoman Blues & Vixy is the perfect match for each other. They are always supporting each other, and they share the same crazy sexy ideas as each other. When there are some fun activity going on for the forum, you can count on PB and Vixy to bring that fun for everyone. When new ideas are brewing, PB does the writing, and Vixy does the drawings. And they are never shy about going one-on-one with each other in a hot, sexy and loving way.

There are so many other couples that share their love differently, and some that don't, but let's not talk about that. Surprisingly, it's scary to see "Sub Tank's Penis & Right Hand" making it to the list. But isn't that what boys does when looking at good-looking hot girls? The boobs never betrays you, they say.

Double names seems to be quite famous around these forums. Sky Child won this one, because her name express all kinds of feelings when looking at it. Mostly funny feelings, but also good feelings overall. Sky Child, for your heavenly divine username, you deserve this award.

Protoman Blues made it close up on the list too, because he managed to mix two names of the same character and actually made it cool. Jericho is as cool and tasteful as Jelly. CephiYumi depicts two kinds of cuteness, Nekomata is meowtastic and Sub Tank is a cool name for energy tanks. Many other usernames are gathered through the members's love of different games, anime and characters, so they are all unique in their different ways.

With a parade showing everyone the most obscure and also most well-known character roster in video games with a added pinch of speech bubbling humor, Vixy won this award with utmost excellence. You see lots of cool-looking sprites walking around on this signature, and none of them are on a sucky video game at all. They are all depicting Vixy's video game interests in a neat little package.

That's not all, the signature also shows different portals and site accounts that Vixy visits on a daily basis, like GameTrailers, DeviantArt, Justin.tv (for live broadcasting), Youtube, and a few topics she made showing some fan projects she made and listing what she owns. These topics are: "Vixy's Totally Complete Randomness & ROM Hack...", "Mistress Vixy's Sexcellent Game Music ReVixes", "Your Virtual Console Games", "List your Rockman & Mega Man games" and "Neo Secret Files and Origins". The last link directs you to her own character profile, which is so adorably cute and bubbly, it should be read by everyone.

A bit lower, you can see different speed-running statistics on some games that Vixy is currently proud of, which in this case is Rockman 9 and Rhythm Tengoku series. She also displays her cute little Gaia avatar, the right one changes looks automatically every once in a while. A userbar provided by DominicanZero shows everyone how many rotating avatars that she displays on her profile and with a click, you can see them all in a gallery.

Protoman Blues shows the same kind of signature coolness, where he displays one of Acid's drawings of his character, a Wind Waker version of Protoman Blues, The Knight Of The Wind, and with it is a link to his topic "Rockman Perfect Musical: The Musical For Everlasting Peace". PB has a userbar too, and that links to his "Rotation of Sexcellence" and is as amazing to look at as Vixy's avatars are.

Dr. Wily II shows some cool signature love by letting Robot Masters run A-Muk on it. A fun thing to mention is that the adorable Sky Child also displays links to different portals that she visits, just like Vixy. But it was Sky Child who started it first. Great display of signature to everyone on the list as well.

It's a tie! Protoman Blues and Vixy are both showing their cool and sexy avatars in a rotation, so no one can miss out on any of them. They all show PB and Vixy's crazy visual antics. On rare moments, their avatars would be used at the right moment of a post and then screencapped so everyone can laugh at them, but in a loving way of course.

PB's egotasticness and Vixy's cuteness knows no limits and it's because of this that everyone on the forum agrees that, these avatars are "The best... AROUND!!".

Not to mention that every other member displays their avatars in their own personal way and they are loved in many ways because of it too. Good looking avatars, everyone!

With different colorful artworks and different themes depending on the mood, Sky Child wins this one without that much of a problem. Sky Child is good at drawing, and all artworks are on a extremely cute level. She gladly creates all kinds of random characters that fits the mood, when she has the mood for it. Her most amazing projects have been the comic Magic Tama, the comic STD collaborated with Tek, the Sparky comic about the Neko Trinity and Sparky, not to mention different kinds of MSN comics drawn together with other members, and her own characters are featured on different type of projects too. She held a Pageant that was well-accepted by everyone, even though it fell short against competition. Either way, she has the most amazing inspiration source in her mind, and there's nothing that is impossible when she draws something. If something hasn't been done, Sky Child creates it and everyone enjoys it a lot.

borockman is a great artist, and you can notice it on his different MS Paint drawings, as well as a few pen drawings. He also has made a Rockman Portfolio where the most amazing Rockman art is inside. Acid has also drawn lots of fan works, when the time is right for it. Most noticable is creating obscure versions of stereotypical characters, actually making them cooler than before. Plus the fact that Acid pieced together ROCKMAN PUNCHOUT MEMORIES and many other fun projects missed by many members. Akira brings everyone exactly what they want, mostly parody or cosplay versions of different games and anime. Just recently, all the veteran members got to become Gym Leaders and Trainers in their own RPM style Pokemon World. Another way to express different style is to try mixing it with RPM members, and Akira did this again by turning some members into Akira Toriyama style RPM drawings. Amazing.

Sub Tank has over the years done some cool and very mind-blown projects as well, most noticably the parody trailer for Rockman ZX Advent, starring Rufus Shinra and a different Sage Trinity, and taught us it's fun to stick Model A's into Model P's (or the other way around). Vixy amazes everyone with her own Game Music ReVixes and big collection of cute drawings and a ROM hack starring herself in it. KirbyPink made sure that everyone got active on Modding Rockman 7 FC, and that's a good thing. Protoman Blues makes things fun with writing fun stories about RPM to read, while Asvel sprites together beautiful pixel drawings in Fire Emblem style and other styles too. Let's not forget RMX's sprite comic called "Rockman 0-bits", which is still going on with a sequel this time.

Not to mention that everyone else is so amazing at artworks and spriting, it takes a driving force and assistance of others to bring amazing fan work. Everyone creates their fan work in their own way, and it's fun to know that inspiration and the will to make something never stops. Keep at it!

She came to RPM a couple of months and was spotted a couple of times in Vixy's justin.tv live broadcast channel and a couple of Rockman 9 topics, but she slowly got accepted by everyone on the forum, and even more when she showed her cute bubbly personality and adorable drawings. This one goes to you, CephiYumi. Get showered with as much snuggly huggable love as possible. The same goes to every other new (and returning) member on the forum. Enjoy your stay! Best newbie trophy goes to you, CephiYumi. You is loved!

There's no doubt about it. Vixy kick behinds on all kinds of games, and she "evenly" divides her skills on each game instead of just focusing all her energy on one game or game series. The biggest interest is sidescrollers, platform games, shmups, RPGs, puzzles, racers, fighters, just to name a few. When you want to see a tough challenge or a speed run performed with excellence, Vixy is the right job for this. She proves her skills by posting them on topics, or showing them live on her live broadcasting channel at justin.tv and everyone is amazed by her skills, it's insane.

Satoryu also shows his skills through the means of speed running, and submitting his talent to Speed Demos Archive. Nekomata types out her skills on text and that's pretty amazing too.

Protoman Blues, Jericho and Viewtiful Ben explains their skills through text just fine too, and they enjoy a game just as much as any other gamer. They can beat everyone at Brawl for sure! Is that a threat? Go get them! Sign on to Brawl and kick their hineys.

Every other member also explains how cool and awesome they are at games, especially Da Dood and DominicanZero, who happens to be great at run-and-gun games, and Hypershell is proud of beating Actraiser 2! That says a lot about awesome every single one on this list is!

With "The Galaxy of RPM" in his suitcase, he's reigned supreme among all other storytellers. The joyful way that Protoman Blues writes stories brings much happiness to everyone that reads them. And his inspiration for silliness never stops, because every read is a laughter. Protoman Blues knows how to warm someone's heart just by writing and expressing his own feeling to others.

Other members can write stories just like Protoman Blues does too. It's the right moment and the right humor that counts. Rhyming helps too. RPM is full of storytellers, and the member that is the leader among them all is Protoman Blues. Awww this text is so soothing.

Zan is awesome as any kind of detailed spriting, no matter what style it is. He is very good at PS1 X and ZX series sprites made from scratch and Zan is the one who you might wanna call if you need sprites for a big game project or something else that is sprite related, although he might just prefer to display his work rather than work for others.

Dr. Wily II is also a great spriter and has created a big amount of newly inspired Robot Masters and Castle Guardians in 8-bit style. Asvel shows very details pixel artwork in her own unique style or in Fire Emblem style. Tsuyoshi and King Reaper makes sprites for their very own game projects when they are in the mood for it.

Vixy prefers to work in 8-bit style but has already made some unique designs of RPM Members, as well as using the sprites for her own game projects, sprite comics and ROM Hacks. Robert Oakes and Ramzal amazes us with their own 32-bit renditions of different characters and even RPM members on rare moments. Diggeh amazes us with his own crazy 8-bit ideas, while the other members shows pixel art and sprites in their own unique ways as well. If you have the inspiration, don't stop what you're doing. It's very neat things you have here.

With a very unique manga style and colors that is good for the eyes, Akira brings everyone the artworks they so want. Just ask kindly and Akira will give you a drawing you can just go WOW over. Akira prefers using colored pens on paper and then scanning the work, but now and then, he doesn't mind mouse-drawings for the most loving moments in life. Akira likes to draw parody and cosplay works of different characters and even RPM members. All he demands is that people is nice to him and give him love and their own drawings of love. Akira is Mr. Fan Service! No question about it.

On the same level of fan service is borockman and Milen Anessar, who will both draw whatever you like if they are in the mood for it. Not to mention that their art style is both adorable and amazing. Every artist is different and unique. Everyone has their on inspiring and creative way of expressing themselves and their ideas. There's no artwork that is bad, but artists tend to say that to their own work a lot, it's not nice to themselves. Appreciate your own art more and your creative ideas will florish!

Say your sorry hiney good-bye, because when you try to talk back against Nekomata, there's no mercy to give! This counts to everyone else on the list really. If you're just gonna act stupid, you're bound to get smacked in the face by a big flame post, burning with so much creative bashings that you won't be able to stand a chance at countering it. This is what other members think, and so, the winner is Nekomata. No one has a chance against you, so accept this trophy proudly.

Another tie, both TheDivine and VirusChris are what people think are the most obnoxious and annoying members on the forum. Sure, some members do act weird and don't make sense sometimes, or even starts stalking members just to be loved by others. But that's not the case with these 2 members.

With a back catalog of hilarious artworks and funny quirks posted on the forum, Acid totally delivers on the funnehs! Acid has over the past few months/years provided everyone with his sarcastic humor and funny stereotypical drawings, there's no way you won't laugh. Acid knows where to tickle your need for laughs and he does it even on his laziest moments or when he's not even trying. He's that funny!

Sub Tank and Protoman Blues are as funny as Acid, but their strong points is different. Sub Tank wins everyone's hearts through sexy drawings and sarcastic humor, while PB does it by writing and sarcastic humor. You decide which you like, but you end liking both.

Everyone is funny in their ways, and if you talk to them, they will joke around in a subtle and amusing way.

The most cutest, hotest, adorable and sexiest member is Vixy, rubbing her body in lotion for everyone to gawk at! She gladly dress herself in all kinds of outfits and cosplays for you and will hug and snuggle you in ways you didn't think was possible. She gives love and she proves love, and that's the sexy way of thinking.

Nekomata and Protoman Blues shares the same kind of sexiness, especially when they fuse into Protomi Blugada. So irresistable. Wanderer, Sky Child and CephiYumi are also very good-looking and loving girls who won't be afraid to show their sexiness when they feel like it.

There isn't a member on the list that won't admit to themselves that they ARE hot or sexy in any way possible, and just by the way they show themselves mighty and cool, everyone is sexy. Wow, this is a burning hot sensation. Let's cool off in the bath tub! Dibs on PB!

Comment
Zan won this award because of his own way of showing how knowledgeable he is at different things, including Rockman. When he posts, you can expect to see big walls-of-text and and he is also very logical about what he says or posts. But when it comes to highly technological stuff that not many people understands, DominicanZero is the one you should ask for advice, and that includes computer things.

Protoman Blues is smart in a social and funny way, and that kind of intelligence is appreciated too, especially among the women. Everyone shows different kinds of smartness, depending on what they have learned over the course of their lives. Have a nice chat about something and you will see that everyone is good at something.

Not only is this member good at finding Rockman news, but is also overally supportive on the website itself. Dr. Wily II won this award because of his social interaction with the other members and getting to know everyone better. Protodude, Viewtiful Ben, Rock Miyabi and TheDivine also shares news as much as they can or feel like it, but the thoughtfulness and support is appreciated from all the RPM Soldiers. Keep up the good work!

This staff member, Vixy, is everyone's favorite. She has been helpful and supportive to everyone in the most crucial moments when it's needed, and she keeps helping members on the community when they need something to ask. Vixy loves to help, when she has the energy and time for it, and she is good at many things, so if you want staff support, she's your mistress.

The same goes for the rest of the staff members, who are amazing in their own way, most actively Protoman Blues, DominicanZero and Sky Child. Quickman is online whenever she can, and Acid does his duties just like he always has been, and with swift justice. Aresian comes on at rare moments, but is also supportive.

Yay, Nekomata and Saber are staff members. Fun!

This is it, the final award, the big one. And it's a tie! Between Dr. Wily II and Jericho! Wow, good work both of you! You are everyone's favorite members. What can we say about this? Well, you are both very active on the forum, in fact, you are both the members with the most online time, and that was proof enough on the forum. You are both very social, loving and caring to other members on the forum and you both won't hestitate to give your own personal thoughts about anything posted on the forum, no matter if it's short or muchly. You are talking to members very actively and you always give love when love is needed. You two are the best... AROUND!!

The same goes for our staff member Protoman Blues, who fell down with one point, but is as loveable as both of you. The same goes for Vixy, who is also in a very cheerful and loving mood even on the most harsh moments. Everyone shows love and care if they just put some thoughts into it. We don't need wars, drama or blood splatter to enjoy a great community. Being friendly to others is the key point of becoming a favorite member, and both of you are the MOST favorite members of all right now. You two deserve this award! It's dangerous to go alone. Take This! *da na na na!*


And with this, we say good night and drive safely.
This has been your host, the RPM Awards staff committee.
