Seriously, Nintendo has no problem marketing Pocket games, and Starforce's failure is pretty obviously a telltale sign that Lan and MegaMan.EXE are just fine as they are. You can fit tons of [parasitic bomb] in between 6 and the final ending at the end of 6.

Mega Man Fans: Now begging Capcom to [parasitic bomb] in their hands

/FUNNYHUMORISM

Weren't they working on a BN x SF crossover? How'd that pan out?

Anyways, I didn't play past BN1, but it was pretty enjoyable. I should give BN2 a chance to hook me.

That was Operate Shooting Star.

And it was just EXE1 with a few enhancements from later in the EXE games, along with an extra scenario involving the RnR characters and playable RnR Rockman after that. And 6 or so new chips.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Apparently there's a ton of copyright shenanigans preventing Capcom from doing much with BN or SF (they outright stated that there won't be a BN compilation, for example).

Has to do with the companies that produced the BN and SF anime (and I think the companies that made the toys as well?).

This please! That and/or something similar to EXE Wonderswan~

I'd LOVE a new Network Transmission so much. They don't even really need to have Lan be the main character, they could just move on to Patch.

Weren't they working on a BN x SF crossover? How'd that pan out?

As a fan of both, it was offensive with how shameless of a cash grab that was.

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

[tornado fang] yes

EXE Wonderswan~
But smoother IE: made by a real game company IE: Capcom

Who is Patch? Is that the mook in the wheelchair?

The anime's actually pretty damn good.
Agreed.
Funny, I could've sworn that counted as a real game company.
No, it's the son of Lan and Mayl. Mamoru was the kid in the wheelchair.

It's OK. It's full of comic relief, which is a problem plaguing many American productions as well.

Bandai is not a real game company. They made the WS games, right? And they suck. What about Challenger from the Future? Sucks. US Gold did a better job with Game Gear Mega Man.

Yea, OK. What have they done that wasn't [tornado fang]ing retarded? Pac Man? Gimme a break. Those Super Nintendo games based on that anime by Akira Toriyama starring that guy that looks like Kid Trunks? Ridiculous. Power Rangers? I mean, everything they make is fun, but it's unpolished and at the core shitty.

[tornado fang]ing Klonoa? It looked cool, and the fluff was awesome. Cute characters and whimsical music. That was why we played.

Joke's on you, Bandai hadn't merged with Namco at the time of the WonderSwan. In addition, what constitutes a "real" game company, by your definition? Bandai's been making games since the 70s.

They also created what became the Power Pad here in America, which was arguably an early predecessor to the Wii Balance Board.

also capcom made those wonderswan games. don't blame the publisher for the developer's mistakes.

They both suck. Together they suck.

Whoop dee [tornado fang]ing doo. Who the [tornado fang] cares about the Wii Balance Board?

They did? Who out of them did? I mean in-house with real people.

I'd make the arguement of why Namco doesn't suck due to the Tales games and God Eater Burst, among other things, but that's my opinion that it doesn't suck and your opinion that it does.

Also I loved NT Warrior but the Star Force anime did suck.

Anyway I would like another Megaman RPG like Battle Network or Starforce but it'd be very hard to get right.  I also would like a Starforce 4, but I don't know what they can do with it in terms of plot.

I had plans for one that tied into the Clock Genius incident detailed in the added scenario of OSS, complete with bosses. Don't know how good it would be if it was official though. XD

Yes, but not quality. Those fighting games are poor and unbalanced. But Duo screams when he does his super and his face comes on-screen, which is awesome.

Don't diss the RPG games man. Pac-Man was an old arcade game, but they couldn't do anything about it. Want a real Pac-Man game to write home about? Go play Pac-In-Time.

Quite.

Ya be starting to sound like a real EA suck-up (or an overall fanboy of anything above the rating of T). Hey, guess what? There are better games out there to play. Like Team Fortress 2 if you can handle the concept of teamwork. Which is the overall plot device for EXE.
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

Fun is indeed fun, especially when spamming Strike Freedom's gun
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations
