Mega Man 9

Recommended Posts

Really late in seeing this, but the trailer lived up to and exceeded my expectations. I'm surprised how incredibly awesome the music in the trailer was. From the looks of it, this really will be better than the classic games I love.

Actually, if I recall correctly, Mega Mans 3-7 had roman numeration for the title screens

Which always struck me funny since they were always referred to as 3, 4, 5, 6 ,7 instead of the the roman numerals, where as in the GB games it's the roman numerals.

But hey so long as it's comes out, they can name it 0b1001 if they want to.

Oh man, I'm so excited to play this game! Downloaded it this morning before going to work, though I'll be holding off playing it. Gonna get together with my best friend for our tradition of playing through the game in one sitting, like we did basically through Mega Man X6.

The achievements are pretty awesome. Some of my favorites:

  • Don't miss with the Mega Buster and clear the game
  • Beat a/all bosses with only one pixel left of energy
  • Clear the game without taking damage
  • Clear the game without picking up more than 8 energy pellets
  • Reach a boss' room without shooting
  • Fight a boss for 10 minutes

After an hour of trying, I finally managed to beat a boss (Concrete Man). Came really close to beating Splash Woman, but kept dying against her. At any rate, despite being ridiculously hard (Mega Man 2 hard, not Mega Man X6 unfair-infatuation-with-spikes hard), Mega Man 9 is probably the best $10 I ever spent.

Best post I saw on GameFaqs this afternoon:

I just fell in a pit and died on Plug Man's stage :(

I wish I could fall in a pit and die on Plug Man's stage :(

Took me a while, but I have Concrete man, Jewel man, Hornet man, Galaxy man and Magma man down.

Also, they mixed things up a bit, in Plug man's stage, you have to not be mechanically timed for the blocks, or else you will fall... often.

And they ain't playing nice, but they are playing fair with this game.
