I'd like to think that they're planning on porting both collections to Switch at some point. It'd be a big missed opportunity if they didn't.

Am I really supposed to crouch dash precisely under these two giant purple death generators in a row? The game tells me to crouch dash (which in and of itself is arguably a bad game design choice if you have to tell a player to use a certain function just to continue), but I always seem to come up way too early and die as a result.

That is easily my least favorite segment of the game by far. There's no reason for you to know that crouch dashing even exists (you auto crouch-dash under those narrow passages), and the game introduces you to the mechanic in a situation where you die if you happen to be off by a little. You have to stand uncomfortably close to the hazard and crouch dash so that you'll come up on the other side. It's horribly designed.

Countershade's stage is fine if you can get around those obnoxious electric traps. Seriously, what is it with this game and purple strands of death?

I think Avi is a good boss to start with. His stage is fairly straightforward, and once you understand how his attacks work, there's no real reason why you should ever get hit. Seismic works too, some moderately tough (but fair) platforming followed by an easy boss fight.

I really like how devs handled the harder difficulties. While I don't care for the fact that you get all weapons at the start, it feels like they put actual effort into making the game harder. None of that Mega Man Zero crap of nerfing the player, here the enemy placement and boss attack patterns have been beefed up to add more challenge without making you feel weaker. Considering the fact that so many games get this wrong, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't the case here.

I started off thinking that Ray's gameplay was kinda meh...and then I got my first special weapon. I like the fact that her weapons feel FAR more innovative than Beck's, and once mastered, you can really fly through the respective stages. The one that acts like Sonic's homing attack is my personal favorite.

Game is fun so far, I've taken out 4 robot masters Mighty Numbers already. There is one section in Dyna's stage that reeks of terrible level design. "Hey, let's introduce the player to this movement option in a death trap where they have to start over if they slightly misjudge a hitbox".  X(

I like mechanic of defeated bosses helping you out in other stages. Feels like a natural evolution of what they did in X1.

Also, glad it wasn't just me having trouble trying to judge Pyro's next move. Even the voice tells don't seem to help much, I feel like I'm rolling dice.

Anyone's PS4 codes working? Mine isn't working and reportedly others are having the same problem. Maybe we'll have to wait for the PSN store to update later this afternoon.

I have no hope whatsoever, and that design is atrocious. Never thought Id be praising Xover design

Xover actually looked like it could fit into the MM continuity. This, on the other hand, is just...something else entirely. I don't know what it is, but it ain't Mega Man.

Makes me think about doing a Layer X Zero K-Knuckle only run. Would make an interesting stream perhaps... I wonder if it would even be doable against the later bosses.

I thought about this; the K-Knuckle has certain limitations since the game wasn't exactly designed around it. Copy Sigma would be near-impossible to hit once he lights the floor on fire, and guard breaking Lumine multiple times in his final phase would be just as fruitless. Stageplay wouldn't be too bad since you can just skip enemies that might be problematic. The hard part would be those miniboss rooms that throw swarms of enemies at you; the K-Knuckle is terrible in the area of crowd control. The ride armor barrage in Pandamonium's stage can get pretty nasty too.

I do think it'd be pretty entertaining tho. Pair the run with some Streets of Rage BGM and you've got yourself a good time!  XD

Welcome to the MMX8 Iron Fist Challenge! The premise is simple; defeat all 8 Mavericks using the K-Knuckle. What makes this challenge unique is that the bosses are done chronologically; I'm collecting weapons as I go, which means that I have to put some thought into what order I take the bosses down. This adds an interesting dynamic as the K-Knuckle already has its fair share of limitations. (i.e. Earthrock Trilobyte is literally invincible without Yodantotsu or Ganzahana)

As usual, the no-damage rule applies here.

If I'm not mistaken, you can choose the teleport win pose manually.  Holding left on the D-Pad triggers it.

How to play Mega Man online:

- Every time you win a match, change your color to the one that closest matches the opponent's character. (i.e. If you beat a Pikachu player, change to yellow/black, etc.)  8)

Annnnd after doing some googling I can confirm that this is a fake made 10 months ago.


Have to admit, this is pretty well-made, though.

That's a pretty well-rounded selection.  The BN costume looks good and Quint took me by surprise.

I can definitely sympathize with Soultrigger's opinion.  With the classic Megaman series, the premise was that 20XX was a future that featured technological advancement in the form of robots.  While fun to speculate about, it's clear that our world isn't headed that way.  Enter Battle Network.  Here we have an alternate universe where the Internet is used over robotics.  This is so much more realistic, especially when you consider that a lot of the tech you see in Battle Network exists today.  Heck, a PET is nothing more than a smartphone.  The BN series was arguably the most relatable series in terms of technology, and I really liked that about it.

Star Force isn't bad, but it really did destroy all of the relatability that BN had.  Real/Matter Waves in particular just took it to an all new level of "out there", and I wasn't too fond of that.

Only Star Force game I played was 3, and I loved it!  I guess if Star Force 2 is as bad as eveyone makes it out to be, then I can see the series suffering for it.  It's like how BN4 severely wounded the credibility of the Battle Network series.

Let's be honest. Star Force's Mega Man's character design sucks balls. It's utterly retarded and I'm not TERRIBLY fond of it.

Out of all the franchise iterations, I've always felt like Star Force MM looked the least Megaman-ish.  The beast design isn't terrible, it just doesn't feel like Megaman.
