Just some filler today. Regular update on Thursday!

I am a Mega Man fanatic. So when I first heard about Mega Man 9 for WiiWare/PSN/XBLA, I was stoked. I’ve played through all of the original series, the X series, the Zero series, the ZX series, and the Legends series. For those who don’t know, Mega Man 9 attempts to emulate the original NES games in terms of visuals, sound, and gameplay. In terms of gameplay, Capcom reps came out and said that the game was going to be hard. Like, Mega Man 2 hard.

They were not kidding.

Mega Man 9 is UNFORGIVING. The first 8 stages are tough, and the final stages kick it up a notch for some extra brutality. The only saving grace in the game is the fact that it actually has E tanks. That aside, it was tremendous fun, and worth every Wii Point I spent on it. Most of the time I actually forgot I wasn’t playing an NES game. If you’re a Mega Man fan, you owe it to yourself to play it.

On a side note, I would have liked to use an actual screenshot of the actual Game Over screen, but that’s the problem with doing a strip about a game that’s just come out. But don’t worry. If you play it, you’ll see that screen plenty of times yourself.
