Not sure I follow. Long Beach? Bay Area? Coney Island is less than half an hour from NYC. New York has plenty of beaches.

Not gonna lie. I just learned something today. Carry on.

Aside from the writers of that comic, nobody knows...

I don't know what was going through the team's head during the making of that...thing, but the end results don't even resemble what I'd call good storytelling.

Back on topic, I think they live in Texas, if only because of Mega Man 8's map and all. Of course, the developers could have chosen not to pay attention to where they were putting that spot, so maybe they just wanted it out of the way to make the actual levels?

As resident native Texan here I can confirm you can enjoy a trip at the beach in November and there'd still be sudden storms, but the waters in upper Texas gulf are NOT as blue as they look in the comics and seems like the best place for Splash Woman and Oil Man to keep their work area especially with the oil rigs around the Matagorda Bay or the Houston ship channel. It seems more likely for sudden storms liek the one in #19 to be more like nor'easters though, but weather aside...

Tokio, Texas is a very small town and it seems odd for Dr. Light to live so far from the coast. If any place I would pin Archie in regards to the closest thing to game canon there is it would be something like some place an hour away from San Antonio or Houston (Seriously one hour drives in Texas is nothing), though considering this is an Alternate!Texas we don't have to worry too much about it looking oddly like New York City.

My guess would be in this Alt!Texas Bexar or Harris County were expanded into a huge metropolis, which in the next 20 years considering the stage at which those cities are being expanded I would NOT be surprised. Noting the niceness of how it is drawn it seems designed more like Dallas though...

EDITS: I'd also like to point out that in Dallas there IS snow and ice compared to further down south. Not ALL of Texas snow doesn't stick, just up in the panhandle where there is a greater risk of snow and ice in the winter. That's why I pulled out Dallas in the city list.

I thought since Mega Man was created in the land of the rising sun, it would make more sense it's in Japan, and it is a very technology like culture.

As the other native Texan I can agree with this 100%.

I really hate that glitch...where is that post...?

Anyway, since I'm posting, I might as well say something about the topic at hand...but what hasn't been said already...?

I'm thinking it takes place in Michigan. There are cities there. Of course, I live there, so...of course, I haven't been to all parts of the state...

EDIT: Yes, I contradicted an earlier post of mine.

That's where the Megamix manga takes place. It actually makes sense considering how much work with robotics has been done there.

Well the games point Dr. Light's lab as in the middle of the USA, so there's that.

Land of the Rising Sun? Thought that was in New Orleans.

Wait that's a house. Never mind.

I don't know if Texas is where Megaman's home is located. I always thought it was in an advanced Japan somewhere. Or at least Washington.
