Retrogamers rejoice

Being an insane fan of the original 8-bit Megaman series, when Nintendo announced that they were releasing a new Megaman game for the Wii I freaked out adequately. Then when I found out they were doing it in 8-bit, and having it play much like the old nintendo classics, I freaked out even more. Here is a link to the story:

But, what this really gets me thinking about is how now that we've advanced graphics so far (think about how good GTA4 looks) they are going back to retrogaming programs. I've heard rumors that if this megaman does well, they are going to start up making sequels to old classics with the same graphics and platforms as the games we remember and love. Siiiiigh. It's a happy thought.
