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.
