I didn't know where to put this...


Battle & Fighters demo lets you fight against 2 bosses before the Game Over shows up. You can only select the first scenarios on both games, while the others are gray and locked out. The release date shows up after playing.

Some other games we could talk about would be:

* Rockman DASH promo discs (Rockman NEO (1) (2) and Rockman DASH 2 episode 1)
* Rockman 7 Sample (Click MegaMan 7)
* Rockman 8 Beta (
with the old Frost Man stage music
)
* Rockman X1 Beta
* Mega Man X7 E3 Special Edition (X playable on Intro Stage)
* Rockman Scramble Battle? (lol)
* Mega Man Mania? (eh, why not)
* Rockman EXE Transmission Beta, with the different camera view in boss fights.
* Rockman EXE 5 DS Twin Leaders Prototype (with lots of 3D elements, like characters and maps)
* Mega Man 4 Beta (EGM Magazine)
* Rockman World 1 Proto

And more things like that. Just fill up the list. ^^



Lets talk about them all.

If it helps, the first Megaman game was going to be an Astro Boy game, then an arcade game, then a Famicom Disk System game. There's also sample carts for MM3 and MM5 floating around somewhere, if I remember correctly.

Then years later, we got "Omega Factor" (GBA) and the PS2 title. Looked like Inufaune wanted a mascot back then, he probably declined it.



This image always gave me a chuckle from the inside.. hehe.

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.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Would Rockman Strategy fall in this category?

Um no, Strategy is a full game.

This is actually something I was partly involved with finding.
Back in early 2007 (9th of January to be precise), I started messing around with looking inside of games with tilers. I ended up finding some curious tiles. Everyone was like "WTF, Higsby?".




This didn't evolve much until recently, when MegaRockEXE dug a little deeper. With the help of Barubary from SI, the full textures' true colors could be determined. From maps to sites to battle panels, there were plenty of possibilities.




Then MegaRockEXE found MORE, being able to build the maps and models.


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

I've been tracking this one down for years:



Fortunately, I found one guy who owns it but his pricing was just way too much for my wallet ($200). Supposedly, this build has X playable during the opening stage instead of Axl/Zero.

I don't think I would pay $200 for X7 even if it was encased in gold.

"E3 special edition" :) It's a build from E3, a demo of sorts.

X being in the intro stage isnt special?
plus, which build was it? the really early one looked rather cool, it was only an intro stage, with no background save for a purplish X1 type gradient.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

An oldie but a goodie.  Very first MM mystery I put online.  Maybe I ought to scan better scans ... ?
This is the "Emerald Palace Zone" of the MM fandom IMHO.  Lots of scans, but nothing else.

Rockman Strategy isn't a beta.  It's just incomplete.  Rockman Soccer is also incomplete.  Sadly, this doesn't make them more interesting .... just poorly done.  On the upside, RMS being incomplete let me rip all the graphics, so ... there's that.

I've been collecting all the recent beta stuff found for my next update to MM Mysteries ... gotta add a link to ProtoDude's Corner to that section while I'm at it.  Lots of good stuff there.

Ah, the loud volume version trailer that I edited. ^^
The original trailer had the sound volume at the VERY ROCK BOTTOM, you almost couldn't hear a thing...

is that any actual song? or just a tune made up for the video?
also, I think this was the build shown in gamepro. I remember at first, the lava stage was supposed to be a timed area where you had to destroy a certain number of a certain enemy.

Something I've had in my archives for quite a while. Thought I'd share if it meant anything.



Its seems that Mega Man Neo was going to be released much sooner then it ended up to be.

I love the quote mentioning Roll, especially the "She's Hot!" Line. XD
