Mega Man 10 Screenshot Gallery

Because GameFAQs has a limit to how many game screenshots they accept, and because I spent too much time lovingly capturing screenshots for a game I wasn't terribly fond of, I have created an entire album dedicated to the images of Mega Man 10, downloadable content and all.

I have done no research whatsoever to back up this claim, but I assure you that this is the largest repository of Mega Man 10 screenshots on the entire Internet. Even if that's not true, I'd wager that it's the most helpful and visually interesting screenshot gallery out there. This isn't pride talking--in my experience, screenshots tend not to be as deliberately engineered as what I've produced, especially not in such quantity: 163 screenshots, culled from at least a few dozen more, expressing as many aspects of the gameplay and as many interesting locations as possible.

Some screenshots look better than others, of course; it's particularly tricky to properly capture the essence of a 2-D action game with an 8-bit aesthetic. There are still gaps in what I have--I'm quite light on the Proto Man and Bass screenshots, for example--but I'm exceedingly happy with what I do have, and I believe they fill a void that, as far as my searching has yielded, is still quite extant.

So, enjoy a spoileriffic stroll through the halls of Mega Man 10, and please use these images as you will; no credit needed (though it's certainly appreciated).

Awesome screen shots. I loved the dancing bananas next to Blade Man on the boss intro screen. :D

Thank you! From the moment I first saw Blade Man, the dancing banana from the Peanut Butter Jelly Time song was the only thing I could think of.

As a side note, I find it amusing that the security word I need to input to post this comment is "dinglua."

Kudos for having a serious approach to taking screen shots. Sounds like the sort of thing I might have had the impulse to do.

Thank you, zharth! I really am something of a shutterbug, though I'm more interested in taking good pictures when the opportunity arises than taking pictures in general.
