Latest fangame logo: Legacy

It seems all I really do is make fantastic logos for promising fangame projects now. Of course, more recently I've been undoing the work I made before.My most recent work is the logo for Mega Man Battle Network Legacy.
They got a name change, which is now the shortest I've worked with. I took this opportunity to try some new things with these game logos. Centered. Blurs. A bend effect that isn't overdone. I'm liking the way this came out. Color choice is still a little iffy.

Now, I wanted to do center because I wanted to stylize "Legacy" like that. Subtle bend with slight 3D effect. Had to pen my own type for that part also since it's very important that the spikes appear on the left and right. In another project, I'm starting to use blurs since I found out they can actually look nice on export and I actually have the hardware to render them now. Blurs everywhere: on the emblem ring, the background squares, the wave glows.

I took my inspiration from the Rockman EXE Anime logos this time. I aimed for this "heavy, elaborate 3D elements" look. I like this logo. It really sets it apart from the other fangames.
I wish the Project Legacy team well.

Now that I looked at it again, it looks a bit better.

Yeah, the logo remind me of the spinoff games like the arcade and mobile games' logos.

I like it!

Though I think it would look better if Battle Network were a different color than Megaman.

PSD? This is Illustrator. I usually don't like giving out complex files like these...
