There’s a Mega Man board game on Kickstarter

Chances are at some point this Christmas and New Year season, at least one of your family members tried to get you to play Monopoly, Scrabble or maybe even Pictionary.

Mega Man the board game is set for release in October 2014, though as with all Kickstarter campaigns, that could change.

Yet, as consoles support higher and higher resolutions, we have seen developers focus less on offering games at such resolutions, instead using new rendering techniques to create what may be the start of the post-resolution gaming experience...
