Ending B

Aliens, time travelers, and espers welcome

On March 1st, Capcom released Mega Man 10 on the Wii Virtual Console. As a few of you know, I've been playing Mega Man games since before I knew how to read, so of course I downloaded this game. As of now, I've only defeated the eight robot masters, so I haven't completed the game per se, but I'd like to give you my impressions so far.

Legends 3?

So what's the latest news from Capcom on Mega Man: Legends 3? Most of the fans have been begging for some sort of continuation after Legend 2 ended on such a cliffhanger, and it seems that it's finally beginning to pay off. While no official release has been announced yet, several small hints and clues are beginning to leak through in various ways. The latest one wasn't even verbal; it was visual.

As many know, Capcom just recently released a Wii version of Dead Rising, titled "Chop Till you Drop". Anyone who has played the original also will probably remember the Mega Man outfit made available in game. So one of the first questions asked of Capcom was if said outfit would be available in the Wii version as well, or if we'd get something different. So Capcom listened and delivered ...

Very much NOT want

...Much to everyone's horror. For those who don't know, that's Roll Casket's outfit from the Mega Man Legends series. So is this a hint of things to come? Or is Capcom just teasing it's fans? For now, all we can do is wait and see (no matter how much we don't wish to see anymore).

Beat Mega Man 9 - About Damn Time

Well, it took several months of picking up the game, done mostly in a "play game, get frustrated, turn off" kind of fashion, but I finally beat Mega Man 9!

Dr. Wily

Take that Wily, you geriatric bastard!

I have sort of a love/hate relationship with Mega Man 9. On the one hand, it's great to play something that reminds me of my childhood, and overall the game is fun. However, and this is a big "however", it may be one of the most frustratingly difficult games I've ever played.

A Mega Man 9 Dr. Wily Level

Falling upward + enemies + spikes = very hard

There are two kinds of hard: "fun and challenging" and "annoying and tedious." Unfortunately, Mega Man 9 is more annoying than fun. There are several instances where I wanted to lodge my WiiMote into the wall. My picks for hardest parts would have to be: Magma Man Boss Battle, Twin Goo Titans, and...



There was also a Protoman mode for me to try out, which is fun because I always wanted to play as Protoman! He can do all the things that Mega Man could do in previous games: charge shot and slide. However, his defense if pathetic at best, he gets knocked back easily, and his normal shot firing rate is incredibly slow.

Clearly, Protoman's shield is as useful as soggy bread.

I had asked in an earlier post whether this game was hard because I'm out of practice or because it's truly difficult. According to Ed, a fellow Ending B contributor, the game was made hard on purpose. So, there we go. Less research for me to do.

As big of a Mega Man fan that I am, it pains me to say that this game is NOT for everyone. This recommendation is late, but that's how it is. If you have never played a classic Mega Man game before, I highly recommend you download Mega Man 1, 2, and 3 from Wii's Virtual Console. They are classics and a whole lot of fun. If you feel comfortable playing those, then maybe you'd be ready to play Mega Man 9.

In short, for hardcore Mega Man fans only. Have a nice day.


Oh, and Roll still holds on to the title of "Dr. Light's Most Useless Robot." Congratulations!

Mega Man 2 Madness

So, looks like Dr. Wily finally got wise and decided to have his eight robot masters attack Mega Man at once!

I found this while looking at Destructiod. The best part is you can download this and play it yourself! Check it out Here!

EDIT: I died many times trying to win, but once I got the two E-tanks, I was victorious! And it only took my about... 20-30 minutes to triumph! Not bad, eh?

I've recently downloaded Mega Man 9 for the Wii (getting it on any other console just seems blasphemous to me). Anywho, it is a lot of fun... it's just really REALLY hard. Sometimes to the point of me wanting to throw the controller into the TV to make the madness stop. Now, my question is this: Is it hard because it was designed to be so, or because I'm out of practice? Needless to say, I'm not done with it yet, but I hope to complete it soon. Then I will give a full report.

I swear, this f***ing flower clock mini-boss thing was made just to annoy ME

I wish that I had robot masters...
