Mega Man 9

Recommended Posts

With regard to the downloadable content that is forthcoming, I agree that it should have been in the game to begin with. There's an interesting episode of "Bonus Round" on Gametrailers.com where they talk about the future of the industry and the downloadable content is mentioned. Using it, a game that starts at $40 costs $60 or even more by the time the "full game" is compiled. I may get the Protoman pack, but as a rule, I don't support miscellaneous downloadable content that should have been included in a game to begin with. Even without that stuff, Mega Man 9 is fine on its own.

On another note, how many of you downloaded MM9 the second it was made available at 12:00 today? It took about 0:30 to download, and I'm wondering how many 'copies' were sold by 12:01.

FUCK YOU DISAPPEARING BLOCKS! FUCK YOU AND DIE!

Hate you... so much...

You will love them.

I lost 7 lives on one part of the fortress's first stage. 7 lives.

Then I made it to the boss and yelled in pain as I went from 0 to continue.

Fixed for Pacific Time :P.

And yeah, that's pretty much what I did as well haha (more or less...got it by 9:05).

On the topic of DLC, I don't see anything in that list that would particularly appeal to me anyway, so it's rather moot from my perspective.

If all that DLC is for real, one could argue you are actually getting a good deal. If you're me, you don't give a shit about any of that stuff except maybe the Protoman download. I get exactly what content I want, instead of being charged the entire price for a bunch of crap I don't care about. Sort of the same reason I wish I could get ala carte television programming.

Remember, we used to pay $50-60 for a full Mega Man game. $12 for a Mega Man game with Protoman is a bargain.

I'm waiting to see if the Xbox 360 version is as good. Then I'll decide between it and the Wii version tomorrow...

It doesn't come out until next week, Oct. 1st.

also, from the IGN review:

While we're on the subject of 360 though, we need to make a note that each of the versions of Mega Man 9 will look slightly different, since Wii's build looks to be a direct NES port of sorts, with the HD versions having a slightly smoother, but also higher contrast -- not as "NES-like" -- presentation. You're going to get the same experience on every version overall, but those that want to sit down and critique the truly minimal differences between the builds will find that the emulation between the three versions is going to differ ever so slightly. The Wii version has more of the 8-bit look overall to it, but that also means there are harder edges, and a more pronounced "blocky" look. Is that a good thing, or bad? In the end, it's going to be personal preference, but as die-hard fans who grew up with the Blue Bomber, we prefer the Wii emulation, as it's truest to form.

Aw frick!!!

Eh, that's okay, I guess. I'm this close to beating Majora's Mask, and Gamefly just sent me The Force Unleashed.

Aw bull crap! That just might force me onto the Wii version. I think the same thing happened with Sonic 1 and 2, and I couldn't stand how they looked on the 360.

WOW! I can't believe what I saw under graphics...

3.0

What were they thinking? :<

This is why current game reviews suck dick. Quantitatively breaking everything down ensures gaming will never get the criticism (like literary criticism) that it so desperately needs if it is to ever be a true art form.

the graphics are bad

The developer did the 8-bit graphics for a purpose.

Really, I would have given the graphics at least a 6 if not 7.

Apparently, Mega Man 9 sold 60,000 copies in a single day, outselling the lifetime sales data of most WiiWare titles and Virtual Console titles.

I had a sense this would happen...

AWESOME!

Hope Mega Man 9 continues to sell great! :-)

Wily Stage 1's music almost makes up for a mostly mediocre soundtrack, it's that rocking.

Fucking flaming spires shooting flames.. I know to freeze them with concrete, but fuck the timing is so hard. You'll know when you get there.
