Oh my god.

I am a mega man junkie.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

I downloaded that on my 360. I was pissed, I was hoping for something a bit more. Oh well, not bad I suppose.

All the old school purists are fucking happy

the way i see it, of ALL like, 25 megaman games, almost everyone will tell you thier favorites are 1,2, and 3.

this is exactly the kind of thing we need in video games.

megaman 9 reminds us that, GREAT GAMES ARE MADE OF GREAT GAME PLAY, NOT GRAPHICS!

hell ive been playing mike tysons punch out for 20 years. never gets old

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

Ya, I downloaded that on my ps3 and I dont really like it as much as Megaman 2 for my nes. This remake is extreamly hard and has all that roll stuff.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

Mega Man 2 was the shit, I played that all the time. This is hard but I imagine Mega Man 2 was hard when I first played it.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

I dld 9 on my wii and cant beat a fucking level. SO haaard.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

start with galaxy man..go from there

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

oh and if you think the robot levels are hard...wait unitl you play the wily stages..w/o being able to save your progress....its insane

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

fuck yah rock man. i need to get me a wii.

actually, once you play a little while, its AS easy if not easier than MM2. you just have to re-condition yourself to 8-bit mode, and earn your status one title at a time.

but heres some tips:

start with either galaxy or hornet man, both are pretty easy.

galaxy beats jewel

jewel beats plug

plug beats tornado

tornado beats magma

magma beats hornet

hornet beats splash

splash beats concrete

concrete beats galaxy

hornet chasers can retrieve items laying around

concret can "freeze" lava streams

SAVE all your screws until its wiley time, then LOAD UP on E-tanks.

dont be afraid to die and continue to refill your special weapons

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

I started with Concrete and then tried Tornado, then gave up for the night. Ill try Galaxy first...

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

I stopped getting excited for Mega Man a long time ago. The Mega Man X series were pretty fucking rad on the SNES because it added some new features and strategy tot he game play. But Mega Man is destined to get stale after so many sequels that add little extra value to the series. We don't need a Mega Man 9. I bet its the same ol' same ol'.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

your coulndt be more wrong ironicface

its the exact opposite of whats been pumped out in the last few years..and exactly what the franchise needed.

i find myself swearing up and down sometimes but the hours of challenging fun are well worth the minuets of frustration

yeah, when was the last time beating a vid made you do "the worm" on your livingroom floor!

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

probably when i was about 12 years old.

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

I downloaded Bionic Commando for the 360 a few weeks ago its such a good game gezzzz

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

***Kim Jong illest*** /

UPDATE! i just downloaded protoman, now i can play through as him.

if you thought normal mode was hard...SHEESH! yeah, you can slide, and do the charge shot, and deflect bullets with your shield, BUT 4 hits and your dead. SUPER hard. also no store availiable.

BTW in the japanese version, thier HARD mode is our NORMAL.

USA: most hardass 8bit players in the world

Re: OT: MEGA MAN 9! NEW 8-BIT GAMES!

USA! USA! USA!

That wasn't always the case with 8bit games, don't forget about Super Mario 2.

Sounds like I actually need to download Mega Man 9 so I can criticize it more accurately. Just as a heads up for me, what "new" features make Mega Man 9 not another chees-o sequel?
