Video Games on TV: Rockman Dash (Mega Man Legends), 1997
This Japanese trailer for the PS1’s Mega Man Legends focuses on the game’s core strengths: silly Servbot expressions. In the span of 33 seconds, I witnessed an unprecedented range of emotion dance upon their glossy, yellow heads. From “Lego-faced confusion” to “Lego-faced mild determination,” the entire facial spectrum is covered by these robotic indentured servants.
You’d almost think the poor little bastards had souls. Which they definitely, definitely do not. I’ve seen a pack of wild Servbots pick the meat clean off an ox. Remember, every silly, whimsical face a Servbot displays always leads to the same outcome: bloodshed.
