    I honestly love the PAL box art for the original Mega Man.

    That is actually pretty good. It's definitely the typical western treatment of a cute cartoony Japanese game character, but it actually looks like the source material.

    I was at the SDCC panel where Inafune debuted the Universe trailer.

    As one of the dozen of people who bought and enjoyed a Power Up* I was really excited for Universe, and really bummed when it died and took Inafune's career at Capcom with it.

    I wasn't at the panel, but I was definitely looking forward to it, perhaps more than a lot of people.

    And Powered Up was so good and does not deserve to be relegated to PSP exclusivity for all eternity. (Ditto Maverick Hunter X.)

    My * after Power Up was supposed to tag a footnote that said basically that. But some how I forgot to put it in.
    It's a bummer that with all the various MM collections through the years, Power Up hasn't popped up anywhere else.

    I assume Oil man is a big reason why.
    Or some weird Sony deal

    Aah, I hate weird Sony deals.

    If it really was Oil Man, it would be great if they could do the Archie thing and had him wear his bandana over his face.

    I watched this earlier, and it pretty much matches my own thoughts on the two games:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilY8OqDJK2A

    The original Xtreme was decent, if not good for what it was and for its time, but in this day and age, offers so very little beyond a couple of unique bosses and a dab of lore. Meanwhile, the sequel just goes all out with new stages, new attacks and patterns for the Mavericks, new weapons, a more involved story, and just... well, if they hadn't decided to reuse the 8 Mavericks, it just could have practically been a whole new game, Mega Man X3.5 or something.

    Incidentally, when these came along, I was a little disappointed that they didn't adapt the MegaMissions cards, since those took place between games the way MM GB games do, and bring back past foes, but they had updated designs that were neat. The long tusks on Flame Mammoth was always a favorite of mine:

    Haven't watched the video yet, but I'd like to say I'll always give Xtreme 1 credit for being the only videogame where having Spark Mandrill's weakness doesn't just make him a complete joke.

    I thought that Maverick Hunter X fixed that? No? It's been a while since I played, so I'm not sure, but I thought he got more recovery time or something.

    I used to always do MMX1 in the order of Chill>Storm>Flame>Spark>Armor>Rolling>Boomer>Sting. Mainly because I wanted to front-load my upgrades, getting 3/4 of the body upgrades in the first 3 levels, along with half the sub-tanks. Then one day, I was bored, and decided to do the exact opposite order, taking on most of the bosses in a much weaker state than I would usually face them in, and having no dash-boots and no weapon they were weak against.

    Spark Mandrill was the biggest surprise, as I had forgotten what it was like to actually fight him and not just stun-lock him to death.

    I kinda wanted to see them add Dr. Light to DiVE with the Hadoken and Shoryuken as his attacks for an April Fools day joke or something, but then they actually added Ryu (and Chun-Li and Akuma) as part of a Street Fighter V promo. So now instead I'd like to see them add Wily, Cossack, or Kalinka to the game with skills based on their only other playable appearance: Rockboard, the real estate tycoon board game on the Famicom.

    Well I'll be damned.

    Oh yeah. $3.99 per game, or $39.99 for the whole thing? I'm grabbing a handful, at the very least.

    Yeah, I'm not even a fan of Smash, but I think MM deserved a spot more than any other 3rd party character.

    I'd argue Sonic, but more in an even match than one deserving it over the other.

    Having both is just golden, though.

    Well, I feel like originally, Smash was a celebration of all things Nintendo. Even though MM is Capcom, I feel like MM is one of the defining series of the NES/SNES days. And in turn, it's the NES/SNES releases that define MM. As much as I like Snake, I felt like his inclusion was a serious stretch. Sonic is a little easier to justify, because even though I don't associate his games with Nintendo, the Mario vs Sonic rivalry is a part of that early Nintendo history.

    Of course, now I feel like they'll throw just about anybody in there as long as they can get a good deal on the rights.

    I agree, though MG, Snake's Revenge, and Ghost Babel made Snake's inclusion easy enough for me to swallow. But even then, Mega Man and Sonic are both better candidates for the reasons you state, IMO.
