Seems cool, and this time Capcom isn't *totally* ignoring Nintendo. 3DS version confirmed! (but coming after the PC/XB1/PS4 release)

It's weird the game isn't on Wii U (I bet the VC games sell better on Wii U than 3DS), but I really don't see the argument for why it matters at all where Mega Man "got his start" at this point. It's been over 25 years now.

Might just be a thing for me personally, but I always thought Mega Man was part of the extended Nintendo family. Not legally, of course, but growing up with the NES, the biggest stars were Mario, Link, and Mega Man. He's my top choice for a 3rd-party character in Smash and I think the huge reaction to that reveal was because a lot of Nintendo fans feel similarly about him.

Sure, I feel that way too, but it's not a legitimate reason to guide Capcom's business decisions. I do think Virtual Console must play some role in this calculus, along with Wii U's relatively small install base.

$15 for 6 games is a much better deal than $5 for 1 that is offered on the VC. Regardless though I think I will pass. I didn't care for Mega Man 1 when I bought it on VC a few years back. Mega Man X is much better so I'd probably give one of those sequels a shot before this.

Everyone knows that Mega Man 1 pales compared to Mega Man 2. Give 2 a shot before you write off the whole series.

If it ever hits PS+ or if I'm inclined to download a ROM and emulator I'll check it out. I'm not going to pay for the opportunity to try it though when I wasn't impressed by the first one.

I actually really like 1 but yeah, 2 is vastly superior.

Apparently 1 didn't even make our top 10 list, while 2 took the #1 spot...

I like 1 too, but they hadn't nailed the basic mechanics yet.

I've never played 2, or at least not since I was a kid, actually I think I did play it as a kid but I don't remember it.

To each their own and all, but it's just sort of bizarre to me that people haven't played Mega Man 2 and aren't rushing to do so.

YOU GET TO HEAR THIS AWESOMENESS THE WHOLE GAME.


Oh, and the game is pretty amazing too.

As far as I'm concerned, Mega Man 3 is still tops. The slide move adds that extra bit of complexity without being kind of annoying (like MM4-onward's charge shot), Rush personalizes the "items" nicely, and it's my favorite set of Robot Masters in the series. Also has a soundtrack every bit as good as MM2's!

Oh, and it doesn't have this level!

@Stephen

Why did you even start with 1? Did you not know then that 2 is much better regarded?

It's okay to skip entries in a series of games. I played Assassin's Creed 2 but never the first one. I played through Phantasy Star IV after quickly aborted attempts to play the 1st and 2nd games. We in the West collectively dodged the Final Fantasy 2 and 3 bullets and skipped to 4. No one will insist people play through Metroid II before Super Metroid. All for the best.

If anything, play 2 or 3 first (preferably 2, then 3...both are pretty equal). I didn't play 1 until after I beat 3. It's not a bad game, but it's arguably the worst in the series.

@Guillaume

It's hard to remember. I certainly wasn't aware of this perception that 2 is that much better than 1 though.

@Stephen

I was probably one of the dudes on the IGN forum saying stuff like "I actually like the first Mega Man", so I apologize for the part I probably played.

@Stephen How? HOW?! 2 is on like every best NES game list ever. Including ours!

@Guillaume

No apology needed. There have been many times I've gone with a recommendation only to find out I didn't like it. Most recently it was Assassin's Creed Black Flag. That one cost $60 instead of $5 too.

@Zero

Well this website probably wasn't a thing I followed back when this happened. Whenever I saw people talk about the games it was always in order of preference or whatever. Even in this thread, the only one who has said they don't like Mega Man 1 is me. Everyone else seems to acknowledge it simply as an alright game to which the sequel is a big improvement.

@Stephen

Ha! That's a riot.

I just had the exact same experience with Black Flag. Luckily, I held out for $19.99 on Steam, but it was the same deal. Played through the intro. Started a chase mission. Promptly put the controller down, realizing I'm done with the AC franchise.

@New Forms

I played through hoping I would see the GOTY nominee other people saw. I figured in a year that saw BioShock Infinite, GTA V, and Last of Us as GOTY nominees an Assassin's Creed game would have to be doing something pretty special to be put up there.

NOPE.

Same Assassin's Creed. Pirate themed.

So Frank Cifaldi (former game journalist at 1up) is part of the team porting these games, and looking at his twitter feed today, it looks like they're aiming to reproduce how the games looked on CRT TVs back in the day, complete with fuzziness and correct aspect ratio. Instead of making the games look like they do when you use any emulator.

That's a pretty interesting approach.
