    Wait, there's an Indie backlash? That's the first I've heard of it. And isn't the whole argument of games shamelessly inspired by retro ancestors kind of pointless? I mean, aren't 90% of all games clones or improvements on previous games in some way? I mean even Nintendo's games rip-off other people's ideas for crying out loud. Is this the Disney effect? If someone uses our characters we sue them out of existence but if we want to call Kimba Simba and copy the rock he's standing on wholesale good for us? It's good if big corporations do it but somehow bad if Inide Devs do it? Just trying to understand the logic.

    Mighty No. 9 ins't shamelessly inspired by MegaMan. Inafune had a falling out with Capcom, and they have since decided to kill MegaMan out of spite. Mighty No. 9 is Inafune's gaming middle finger to Capcom.

    One can always go even further down the gaming history line. Like with Alien breed, that surely was nicely inspired by Into the Eagles Nest of the 1986 Amstrad/CBM64-versions.

    Surprised that Shovel Knight isn't here, seeing that the game wears it's mega man and Zelda 2 influences right it's sleeve.

    Not to mention Ducktales and to a lesser extent Castlevania. Damnit Shovel Knight hurry up and come out already, I need you in my life. ;_;

    I'm now buying a hat in time. That looks adorable.
