If it's blue, it must be MEGA MAN(-esque)!

    MM1, Wily bad
    MM2, Wily bad again
    MM3, Wily good, but no really Wily bad. MM had brother.
    MM4, new bad guy, but actually Wily bad
    MM5, Protoman bad, j/k Wily bad
    MM6, new bad guy, j/k Wily (in disguise) bad

    To be fair, this is all the plot any of the megamans ever needed.

    In fairness, I think Classic is meant to be more like their Mario or Sonic, in a manner of speaking. After all, that's the one with the board, soccer, and kart racing games.

    When I say something about the Mega Man games not having a good and/or memorable story, I don't really mean it as an insult. I don't play MM games for an engaging narrative, but because they're fun action-platformers. They could do MM Classic style stories for all the games in all the spin-offs, and I wouldn't care.

    I mean... fair. There's probably something out there I like to play that I don't care about the story/characters/etc. in much, too.

    If I'm being honest, though, I think Capcom could probably be doing a lot more with some of this stuff...

    Classic MM is like Mario. It's fine that it has a paper thin story to it. There's technically an end point to it... but they're never ever going to do it, so there's no point pining for it.

    X series is when they actually decided to have a plot. And it's a good plot! Just sucks that they suck/ed at telling it.

    It doesn't help that the X series came out during an era where video games were still ... not great at telling stories.

    Yeah, I can agree with this.

    Doesn't help that so much material behind it was typically relegated to Japanese-only guidebooks and such.

    As for Classic, yeah, I seem to be in the minority in that I don't think it should end. At the same time, I'm all for having an ending.

    My go-to example for what I mean is Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. It basically told us how the Batman/Joker story ended, but that didn't keep them from doing new chapters as part of Justice League. (Though a far, FAR stupider reason prevented it in Justice League Unlimited, but I digress.)

    The Capcom inconsistency meant Mega Man went from a stone faced killer in one game taking an attempted kill shot at Willy, to quite possibly the wimpiest English VAing ever in some titles.

    And how!

    I think my favorite tidbit of trivia regarding MM8's voice acting is that it was basically done at the same time as X4. To the degree, IIRC, that the VAs didn't even know which of the two games they were recording for at any given time.

    Only if no one else does.

    I mean, I have both on multiple devices, but I don't have any Mega Man on Steam except for DiVE. So while I wouldn't mind seeing what kinds of mods might be out there, it's not been a high priority for me, y'know?

    Nice, but not strictly speaking necessary.

    I was really close to buying that MM humble bundle and falling down a rabbithole of nostalgia, but apparently Capcom broke steam deck compatibility. Bully to them.

    did they ever patch mega man x collection to fix the input lag? I watched a video that showed all platforms have bad input lag; maybe there's mods for it on PC? Ive been holding back on nabbing it on PC or Switch because of that issue

    I haven’t noticed any horrible lag on switch undocked but that tends to be a very favorable platform (by switch standards at least) because it eliminates a lot of tv associated display lag that might otherwise be present.

    “Best” way to go is original hardware, ofc. The thing with that though, is that I swear for all people say the games on these collections are unchanged I swear the originals on SNES have more slowdown…. Could be just my imagination though.

    I've been wanting to see less pseudo-8-bit looking garbage from the indie scene and more high-res-PS1 looking stuff. Definitely adding it to my release radar.

    Not really the thread to ask, but is it just me, or did Exoprimal come and go with barely a ripple? For a semi live-services game you never really hear much about it.

    this looks quite good. I also enjoyed Gravity Circuit, which is Megaman but you have a melee attack instead of a ranged attack.

    And yeah, Gravity Circuit is one I've gotten, but not gotten to play much of yet.

    Protodroid Delta is also on my radar.
