Mega Man 9

Capcom’s decided to go back to the old NES style graphics in their latest Mega Man game. Honestly, I think it’s a good idea. I pretty much didn’t like or play any of the Mega Man games after the NES/SNES ones, the series just wasn’t doing it for me. This, however, I certainly will pick up. I mean, look at the bosses you’ll be facing:

Galaxy Man: level consists of portals that fling Mega Man all around the level, maintaining his momentum with each fling (a lot like Portal, actually), plus enemies that divide into multiple copies of themselves.

Plug Man: home to the required “disappearing block” puzzle

Jewel Man: there are swings here that you have to move with built-up momentum – we had to try it several times before we could make the jumps

Splash Woman: yes, a woman robot master. Level features a hovering bubble puzzle we saw in Mega Man 5. One of the masters designed by Inafune himself

Splash woman! I guess we have girl bosses now. What is the world coming to.

  1. You are in too deep. Its time to step out the past and into the Radical. This makes me dislike the DS even more. That system keeps pumping out snes graphics that feed your addiction. What platform is this game gonna be on anyway?

  3. I figured my words would be misleading. I was just placing the blame on the ds because the games released on the system are old nes/snes style games.

  5. The next time I visit my plan is to somehow lock you in a room with a DS, a bunch of games, and some beverages and gold fish (crackers, not actually a bowl of gold fish, though that might be more interesting). Maybe a DS charger, too. And somewhere to plug in the DS charger, obviously. The room will be all white and just have a small table in the center of the room with all the items on it, and there will be a chair next to the table. The table and chair are white, too, just in case you’re really trying to visualize the “DS Room”. These will both be secured to the floor in case you go crazy and try to kill yourself. The room will have a soft glow, but there will be no visible light source. At first you might be scared, because you’ll be like “What the fuck, I’ve never seen this room before in your house.” You will have no contact with the outside world, and food will be given to you through a small, sliding door in one of the walls, just big enough to fit a tray through. I’ll randomly communicate to you through a speaker on the ceiling and encourage you to play the DS. At first you’ll be resistant and maybe crawl into the fetal position in one corner of the room. Eventually, though, you’ll get bored and be forced to play the games. Then and only then you will truly love the DS and be reformed.

  9. Your comments remind me of Acoustic Gomez. With liz’s comments in mind, some of your words confused me. Next time you visit your plan? Do you go away from your plan sometimes? Do I come into your plan? This DS room does frighten me. You say the chair is bolted to the floor. The only thing that accomplishes is taking away my ability to throw it at the wall. Other than that I can still bash my head into it. The point is that as long as you stuck me in this racially white room and fed me goldfish, water, and anything else I asked for, I would be a happy man. Unless locking me in the room means I miss work and get fired, then we might have some problems.

    p.s. note to lizbot- back up offa him.

  11. If my boy falls we all fall. So I finally watched the video for this and I don’t know what to say. 8 Bit Graphics? I don’t understand. Shouldn’t we have moved away from this. Looking at this I am thinking, ” Why buy this game when I can go back and play the one I have on the NES?”. Its pretty much the same thing. So what if there are new levels and whatever. I don’t really have a problem with this, I just don’t understand it. The game better be cheap as hell. I imagine that making a game like this these days isn’t that hard and can’t cost that much. The game should retail at 15 to 20 dollars.

  13. I guess I should have asked if this is a wiiware title or an actual game to buy at stores
