Mega Man 10 announced for WiiWare

New Mega Man game to feature three playable characters?

Early scans of next month's Nintendo Power reveal that Capcom is developing Mega Man 10 with an eye towards cashing in on the 8-bit nostalgia of the previous game while making the traditionally challenging level designs "more accessible."

Unlike critically-lauded predecessor Mega Man 9 (which saw near-simultaneous release across WiiWare, PSN and XBox Live,) the next Mega Man has only been confirmed for a WiiWare release.

Players can expect to play as either Mega Man, Proto Man (also available in Mega Man 9 as downloadable content) or an unannounced third protagonist. The actual game mechanics appear to be almost identical to earlier titles as Mega Man jumps from platform to platform blasting enemies and seeking a cure for the robotic equivalent of swine flu by defeating the expected Eight Robot Masters (though Capcom has designed an Easy mode to address complaints about the insane difficulty spikes of Mega Man 9.)

Also, the newest Robot Master is Sheep Man. Make of that what you will.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
