You see that motherfuckers, that is Mega Man

Mega Man 9 has been out for awhile, if you haven't gotten it - get it.

This is one hard-ass game.

Fucking old-school. Levels that border on impossible. No pussy-ass "tutorial" levels, just throw you in with the sharks and try to get out with your limbs.

Fuck-awesome game.

    This game is damn fantastic. I'm up to the Dr. Wily levels, but I know I'm gonna need a big long damn time to be able to get through those fuckers. You gotta get through them in one go, can't save between levels.

    Someone describe the pictures that have been posted so I can comment on them. They are blocked by my work filter.

    Also, Galaxy man is the easiest to beat with just the Mega Buster.

    Black Hole Bomb is good for Jewel Man. Sucks up his jewels. Wait, that sounds terrible.

    Spark Ball is good for Tornado Man, but a pain to hit him with because it travels on the ground and walls, but he likes to hover in the air a bunch.

    Guess this is just another game I need to play in the near future. I should just buy a safe, put all the games I need to play in there, and open it up when I'm done with one game and take out another.

    Is this a hard game guys? Cause I am having a hard time with it, just beat concrete man and Spark Man, had to replay their stages dozens of time to memorize everything. Ugh, and those achievements about beating the game without taking damage. Those make me feel like a complete failure.

    Yes, this game is very hard. Took me forever just to get past one stage. Then I got back into the old rhythm.

    But y'know what? FUCK those achievements. I am not a god.

    Yeah, I was a bit put off by that as well, but it turns out
    the robot masters in this game are old robots designed by Dr. Light, but corrupted by Wily, so no harm done.

    Also, I suck so bad at this game, still have to get through Spark Man's stage, fucking disappearing blocks.

    The staff on the project actually petitioned specifically to make a female boss character. Wiki says the bee boss was originally female as well.

    I'm not sure whether it's good or bad that I've made it past most of the mini bosses and obstacles(like the lava beams) without thinking to use the special weapons.


    And those pictures are, in order:

    Mega Man avoiding lava beams

    Mega Man fighting the Hornet Man mini boss(who is evil incarnate, and comes back for the Wily Stage on spite)

    and Mega Man fighting the dragon miniboss in Flame Man's level.

    The lava beams ain't no thang until you get to Wily's level.

    Fuck that flowerclock.

    Dragon was kinda tough, but not as annoying as that falling rock guy.

    Some lava beams, that asshole flower boss from Hornet Man's stage, and the dragon from Magma Man's stage.

    Oh and for the record, the Magma Bazooka is really useful against that asshole flower. Three charged shots at point blank range is enough to kill him.

    Oh, and just for the record, the easiest levels to start off with are Splash Woman, Galaxy Man, or Magma Man. All three of them are pretty simple with just the Mega Buster, although Magma Man's stage is still plenty hard.

    I love this game so much.

    The lava beams when they're in Magma Man's stage are barely even a trifle.

    But in Dr. Wily's stage, it took me many, many lives to get past them.

    Spark Mans stage was pretty simple with just the M buster, just jumping around not falling into spikes or blackness. The boss isn't too tough either once you figure him out a bit.
