Starcrossed Part 2

The conclusion to the long awaited Mechanical Maniacs / Annihilation crossover! Featuring the return of the most specific of all Mechs incarnations – the Mechanical Maniacs.exe! Everyone groans as the Mechs are forced to once more don their Navi forms to team up with the Net Navis of Annihilation. Things go crazy, so check out the latest instalment for both teams – Starcrossed Part 2.

Also, some more 8-bit versions of Mechanical Maniacs (and Sinister Six) epilogue characters by geno2925. As well as Crorq’s own custom weapon – the Chicken Buster and Gravy Train! Gotta say, I love that Colonel Sanders weapon icon. That’s perfect. See more gift sprites in the Miscellaneous Sprite Gallery.

EDIT: Rai here. I actually had a few more things to add that I probably should have remembered to tell Gauntlet about before the scheduled update. Now that Starcross is all up, check out my Art Gallery for all the design sketches I could dig up from when I started planning versions of this story way back in 2008. I’ve also updated the Navi Marks page with the symbols of all the Crossed characters. I also quietly added marks for Mighty No.9 characters a couple months ago, right after the game’s release. Kinda just wanted to slide those in there without making a big deal about it.

Starcrossed Part 1

It’s been years in the making, but it’s finally time. Time for the long awaited Mechanical Maniacs / Annihilation crossover! Yes, ever since Rai merged his team’s content with ours I’ve kinda been pushing for a crossover. And, after eight years here we are. So check out the latest instalment of both teams – Starcrossed Part 1.

Also, check out this General Cutman fan art by Kaity-Chameleon.

Nine to Five

The Ascendant Androids have stopped their dangerous ways and have gone straight. Well … they’re trying to anyway. How can the most dangerous group of robots hope to fit into the Wily Underground?

Bad Neighbors

Another epilogue by Geoff, featuring his former team – the Ascendant Androids! It seems these murdering marauders are back …. to move in next door!? The Wily Underground will never be the same!

Tall Tales

We’re back with another Mechanical Maniacs adventure that’s not just a repost of older stuff. In this adventure the Sinister Six tell the original of their new Wave Woman and the sad fate of the even sadder Waveman.

New Year, Old Stories

Yes, it’s a new year. And what better way to welcome in the new year than to post some old stories? Mostly by Hadrian, our once and former Hardman, but also a few that were elsewhere are now in just the one place.

Newly opened is Miscellaneous Fiction! Which houses completed stories that are on the site, but have nothing to do with any of the other fiction sections (which are 90% Mechs epilogue and 8% AXE epilogue-related).

I have to admit, I’ve always hesitated on posting fiction made by members, but not expressly given to me on the site. But, some of these come from forums which are now walled off from public viewing. Also some deal very directly with the Team Scene as it was in the days of yore (you know, back when there was a Team Scene). So, what the Hell? Go on and take a gander at stories by the guy who revolutionized the community once with the fan favourite Hardman’s Bar! And if the site’s taking a while, you can also see it in plain text.

Also, in a note that may or may not be related more unfinished, abandoned tales of the Mechs and more have been posted in that most hidden of all pages on the site.
