    Fluidity is $11? Huh. You really need that extra $1, Nintendo? You really couldn't sell that game for an even $10? LOL.

    Oh well, it's a good game so whatevs.

    Wasn't the original Fluidity $12 on WiiWare? So we're, like, saving a whole dollar!

    Actually, $10.99 does seem like a weird price. $9.99 just sounds much more appealing.

    The other day at the hospital I seen a tootsie roll pop being sold for 54˘... I thought really, 4˘. Just make it 55 or 60˘ and make everyone's life a little easier.

    @canonj

    Yeah, you're right. It's a dollar less than the WiiWare game. But your second point was really what I was getting at...$10.99 is just an odd price. It even sounds weird to say!

    But...meh. I'm not grabbing that one today anyway. The only insta-download for me is Mega Man!

    I wish I had the time for Fluidity right now. I wouldnt be surprised if it turned out to be my eShop GOTY.

    I went ahead and downloaded Mega Man.

    It's been so long since I've played this game, I forgot which order to take the Robot Masters in. I got beat down by Fire Man pretty easily.

    Guess I'll try my luck with Ice Man first, this time. What order do you guys fight the bosses in?

    Not Ice Man. Bomb Man or Cut Man maybe.

    Ice Man beat me, too. His shots are powerful! Mega Man can only take like, 3 hits from him (with a full bar of health) before he blows up. Ouch. It's frustrating, because dodging Ice Man's attacks isn't too difficult. But if you're slightly off, you'll pay for it. Harshly.

    I always went Ice Man first, or Cut Man.

    Already downloaded Fluidity. I really want to polish off Time Fcuk before I play it, but these extra puzzles are ridiculously tough...takes me hours to figure them out. If I don't break and look up the solution on youtube, that is...

    Okay, I took down Cut Man first, and I remember that his weapon is good against Elec Man, so I took those two down. I can't remember which boss is weak against Elec Man's weapon. Maybe Guts Man?

    MM1 boss order:

    Cut Man > Elec Man > Ice Man > Fire Man > Bomb Man > Guts Man

    At least, that's what I think it is. Regardless, some of the Robot Masters in that game are insanely hard to defeat without the weakness weapon (Elec Man comes to mind). Guts, Bomb, and Cut are all doable with the buster, Ice and Fire are pretty tough with just the buster, and Elec Man is extremely difficult with it. And all of the Wily bosses are difficult regardless, unless you do the pause trick.

    That said, I find the 3DS's D-Pad and buttons aren't the greatest for precision-requiring games like MM1. Although if you have an XL, the buttons seem a lot better on that.

    Still waiting for MM2 - 5 on GB. I love the NES series but I already own them (some of them in multiple formats).

    @GameDadGrant

    I always go Guts Man first. And then Cut Man.

    @TriforceBun

    Your order works, too. I start with TheBigG first though, and everything else rolls in sequence.

    I get Bomb Man first, following that order lets me have Guts Man's weapon in Elec Man's stage so that I can get the Magnet Beam without re-entering it later.

    Mop it up said:

    Ah, good point. Yeah, I'd recommend hitting up Guts Man at some point before Elec Man to minimize the backtracking.

    Since Cut, Guts and Bomb are all not too bad without the weakness weapons, I usually just do those three in whatever order and then move on to the tougher bosses.

    @TriforceBun

    Guts before Cut because you can pick up those chunks and throw 'em at him, and then follow up with standard shots.
    But yes, the Bombs do work well on Guts man.
