I've been playing a lot of Megaman X lately. My favourite game in the series is X4. What do you guys think? Also, just action platformer thread.

> I'm almost finished but I think I definitely need to play through it again to get the full experience

The experience of having already cheated by watching how other people beat the game. Do you even like videogames or do you play only to tell others that you play videogames?


I watched that one miniboss fight that I spent hours trying to do myself idk whats the problem, it's no different from reading those gaming magazines or watching stuff like g4 on tv that were popular at the time which would give you cheat codes and guides on everything
>Do you even like videogames or do you play only to tell others that you play videogames?
You have to understand I was at the point of nearly dropping this game entirely because of this one section, something I've never done for any other megaman game, it's one of those things you go at for like 20 times, rage quit, come back and hour later for 20 more times, rage quit, repeat. Usually bosses in megaman titles have a trick or something that you need to find out in order to take care of them, I kept trying to find this trick with no luck, and to my surprise there was no trick after all, it was literally right in front of me the whole time, just shoot the green orbs, that's it.

The one thing that I found out that did help was completing the blade armor before going at this boss seriously. The only part of the blade armor I had no idea how to find and had to look up was the head piece, turns out you have to play through a certain stage multiple times because the capsule spawns at complete random which is the stupidest collectible in any X game so far


>I watched that one miniboss fight that I spent hours trying to do myself
You even have to cheat on small things like a miniboss fight. Lame, low IQ and a cheater who can't beat simple sections of a game by himself. Where's the sense of achievement in cheating? You never finished a game by your own means but with the help of others.


I don't know why you are so intent on attacking me, getting a small tip for something in a game isn't cheating in the slightest


>getting a small tip for something in a game isn't cheating in the slightest
It's not small by any means because you wouldn't be able to finish the game without it.
Watching how to beat a stage is cheating and that's exactly what you did. You watched another person solve a puzzle or task you couldn't do and now lie to yourself and say that you did it and it's not "cheating" when you copied another person's solution for a problem you face in the game.

>The only part of the blade armor I had no idea how to find and had to look up was the head piece

More cheating. Why do you even play videogames? You cheat and lie to yourself and talk about your progress when you cheat to advance in games. Where is your sense of achievement?
> it was literally right in front of me the whole time, just shoot the green orbs, that's it.
Yes and you couldn't do it by yourself, you copied someone's answer. Basically, your whole progress is thanks to cheating. Just quit playing videogames.


x6 was rushed out the door as a cash grab for christmas, it is unpolished low quality crap that clearly had no playtesting and is widely considered the worst megaman game ever created, yes you actually need a guide to get some of the stuff in this game because no reasonable person would consider the things you need to do to find some of the upgrades in this game (invisible walls, leaps of faith, randomness, the usual cheese) or some of the specific things you need equipped to beat certain bosses. I would tell you to go play it yourself but you are probably trolling. One of the key things in every other megaman game is being able to beat the games without any upgrades at all, but in this game you actually can't even progress through the sigma stages without having specific things unlocked and equipped. I think it is just unacceptable to have required items hidden away as if they are meant to be secret unlocks, it's just ridiculous. Stuff like the secret ultimate armor, hadoken, or shoryuken in the first 3 games being hidden behind invisible walls in weird places is fine because they are truly secrets, but if something is required to complete the game it shouldnt be hidden in an obscure place.


>you actually need a guide
The ultimate cope of a cheater who can't put enough time and dedication in a game but likes to talk about his fake progress.
Imagine playing Megaman and not being able to figure out what to do here and needing a guide for this: >>54991 You have the health bar clearly indicating that you must destroy it to advance but you need to watch a guide for that. For you it's impossible without a guide. It's like you never played megaman in your life or you have the IQ of a sub-Saharan african.
Smh zoomers can't even use their heads, they need everything handed out to them and make up excuses for everything.


I could do it I just thought there must be some trick I was missing because it was boringly slow to kill, all the guide did was confirm to me that there is no trick and I do have to stand around waiting for the thing to round a corner so I can shoot it a couple times, it is just the simple disbelief that there is a boss in a game series that I like which is utterly devoid of any strategy


Please stop using cope this way.
Stop assuming things. I am not enough of a fan so he had to show me what he was experiencing.


>I could do it I just thought there must be some trick I was missing
>what do you do in this situation seriously I cant beat it

So which is it?
> it was boringly slow to kill, all the guide did was confirm to me that there is no trick and I do have to stand around waiting for the thing to round a corner
Why do you even play videogames if you don't like them? Do something else with your time if something is boring to you. You basically confirmed what I thought, you check a guide and watch speedrunners for shortcuts because you want to finish the game as fast as you possibly can even on your first run. No sense of achievement, zero effort on your part since you stop to watch others, and come here to posture that you play videogames but all you do is cheat by seeing how others beat the game.

I dunno whats got you so butthurt lol, you sound jealous or something or you have a personal vendetta against people discussing megaman because you couldnt beat any of the games


I think you are obsessed is what I think.

anyway I finished x6 and it was underwhelming, but some reason my memories are telling me it was pretty good, the last boss fight is sorta hilarious/a joke, sigma comes out of nowhere, he's shambling around and yelling like some drunk dude and he dies in a few hits really easy, then he turns into a ridiculous giant terminator head which you just hit a few times to kill while he's yelling like some angry drunk guy about hows he's totally gonna get X, like it turned from a pretty serious game to saturday morning cartoon tier, something you'd see in the classic series megaman with Wily. I'll probably replay it some time later just cause of that lol, also the shadow armor that's in this game is awesome, I managed to cheese it into a boss fight I dont think I was supposed to have it in by stacking jump parts and I shredded the boss no problem

anyways it gave me these cheat codes at the end, I put them in and they made a noise but I dont know what they changed, I'll probably look later


I am thinking maybe you should try x7/x8, really odd feeling 3d takes on action platforming


I can't emulate nor buy them and I know that it died at 7 so no thanks.

I might even like the terrible x7 for all I know but I don't like playing things out of order and can't do it anyway as I just previously 'stated', so yeah…..


> I finished x6
You didn't, you cheated your way through the game checking for answers on easy things like this >>54991 that anyone who plays megaman knows how to beat.
Talk about Megaman when you stop handholding yourself watching playthroughs and finding shortcuts on the internet by speedrunners. Why do you play videogames if you're just going to cheat? So far this whole thread is just you attentionwhoring about a game you can't beat by yourself.


if you've played megaman games a lot you sort of find shortcuts/cheese on your own, in x6 there was some reploid on the other side of spikes that is impossible to get unless you had the shadow armor on, luckily I had the raining meteor nightmare effect on, it was disabled in the area but I quickly left, waited for a meteor to spawn from the top of the screen in the the right place and ran as quick as possible to where it was(landing near the spikes), I quickly hit the meteor for invuln frames so I could run across the spikes for a few seconds then air dashed at the last second to grab the reploid, you can do a similar thing in wheel gators stage in x2, invuln frames to hop up some spike and grab a heart tank you're supposed to use a weapon or something for, actually I dont even know how you are inteded to get that heart tank cause I always just bait a mechaniloid to shoot me so I can hop up the spikes


This is just a covert megaman blogpost thread where you tell us how you suck at games like in this example >>54991 because you have a zoomer attention span and a subsaharan african IQ and no love for gaming.
It'd be nice if you actually liked games and we could read a game journal, but you're just a cheater who wants attention and uses this thread for that.

You accomplished nothing because you have no sense of achievement, just watch others playthroughs and then repeat what you watched. 2021 "gamers"


>This is just a covert megaman blogpost thread
I didnt even make this thread I just assumed people in here would want to talk about megaman, but it seems like there are too many trolls who have some sort of chip on their shoulder regarding the series, but it's not my problem


MMX has a special place in my heart because it taught me how to overcome my shortcomings. I know that sounds REALLY fucking cheesy, but I guess let me explain.

When I first played it, I was probably 5 yo or something. So, my reflexes were shit, and my gaming intuition was shit, too. I eventually realized I couldn't rely on reflexes and reaction time to get through bosses and stages. So, I'd get creative and slowly but surely break through things. I mean, the classic thing is to slowly learn the rock/paper/scissors dynamics against the bosses and getting powerups and using them to tank through difficult sections, but there were other things too. E.g., I'd end up using Chill Penguin's ice shot to use the ricochet to shoot enemies above myself in Kuwanger's tower. Against Bit (or was it Byte?) in MMX3 I had difficulty keeping up with his fast paced movement, so I'd use the slow moving ice missiles like land mines so that I could focus on dodging and didn't really even have to aim to hit him because he'd end up running into the projectiles himself. I'd invent those kind of weird strategies that taught me the bigger lesson that often in life you can overcome your shortcomings using other skills in your skillset.


The first time I played the game I was probably around 5 too, but had x4 and x5 for the ps1, I think I was too stupid to even realize that patterns exist, I remember the whole game feeling magical, and then while playing x5 if you dont finish in 15 retries you get put into a nightmare stage, I couldnt even read so I thought zero would randomly possess my console which further made me think the game was super cool


I noticed that megaman X games kind of give you an imaginary sense of getting better at the game. The thing is the first time you go at a boss you might not have any life upgrades or armor parts and you'll get destroyed just by messing up a bit, but then after you get upgraded a bit and go for the same boss you feel like you got 'better' at the boss, when really you just have 2x as much hp and damage reducing armor. This is where the classic games are a lot more consistent


i havent finished any megaman game, gave a try on megaman2 but it was hard to the point where i didnt enjoy it. hwre do i start with the series?


If you want an easier time with classic megaman start with megaman 6, but also you can get into megaman X with X4 which I think is the easiest entry and the X games are probably the most fun because they are made more complex for teens instead of classic megaman being made for <10s


Mega Man 2 on normal is the easiest Mega Man game.


it is totally not the easiest, megaman 5 or 6 or 8 is probably the easiest, megaman 2 is very rough and unforgiving unless you know exactly what you're doing

is anyone interested in playing this (or 20xx) in co-op mode? it's basically megaman, we can do endless levels and stuff depending on how familiar/skilled you are with X games


Since I only played 5 and 6 once each and haven't played 8 because I can't stand the awful voice acting I won't argue with you. But even if it's not the easiest, it's easy as hell on normal, even if you fight the bosses with the normal weapon.


>haven't played 8
it's literally the best entry in the series, play with japanese sounds (same for x4), both were legendary releases and 8 has the most unique level design of any megaman game, you should play it it's awesome, probably my favorite title on the ps1


I hate ps1 emulation but might give it a try tomorrow

Just beat it, downloaded an undubbed ISO, don't if it's official or modded but thank god it exists. I gotta thank you because I wouldn't have played if you hadn't told me and it was really good, loved the sprite work and the level design. That being said, I still don't think it's easier than MM2, especially not the last stretch, and that skateboard sequence in particular. It's not a particularly hard game, although it took me quite a few tries at some points, but to me 2 on normal difficulty remains the easiest.
I would still recommend this one as a point of entry to the series, it looks and plays really well.


what's wrong with ps1 emulation? i use the duckstation core on retroarch and it works fine


Best way to play PS1 is with a PSP, if both analogue sticks aren't needed. Especially if it's not a PSP iso running off PSP's hardware interpreter but rather a full box released version of a PS1 game on the PSP so that the ugly jittering and dithering of the PS1 is prigrammed out


I don't know it never feels right to me. I use epsxe


megaman 8 is spritework so I dont think it has jittering or dithering

If you liked megaman 8 try megaman and bass for the snes, it is basically the same graphics as mm8 but on the snes which is pretty crazy, it's japanese release only but you can apply an english translation patch to it, it was designed with diehard fans of megaman that couldnt afford a ps1


I think I know what you're talking about, use mednafen, every other emulator is garbage, it was the only emulator that played castlevania SotN properly for me, which is another 2d game


I'm ashamed to say this but I downloaded mednafen once and couldn't get it to work, I use this one mainly because it's just "File->Load ISO" and it works. Gonna try mednafen again later


>megaman and bass
Nice, will try it out.
Speaking of Mega Man, are the newer games any good? The ones for Wii that look like NES games and 11 I think, that looks modern.


megaman 9 is good
megaman 10 kinda sucks and goes way too overboard with the difficulty (it feels like a fan game)
megaman 11 is really really good, I played through it like at least 10 times


>megaman 10 kinda sucks and goes way too overboard with the difficulty (it feels like a fan game)
God I hate that kind of bullshit, gonna pirate 11 and maybe get it if I enjoy it

I will start off to say, megaman has never ever been a game about succubi, always a game about robots and fighting, all starting on the premise of a boy and his dog… now in x8? Layer? Pallette?? Come on capcom, these sort of characters don't belong in any megaman game! I mean it is not even innocent, there is stupid tension between specific female characters and X/Zero that is annoying when I just wanna play the game and have fun

So you maybe asking "what about Alia?", well she is a prime example of an operator done right, she fits the theme, she doesn't have some stupid boob crop top, she's not a little succubus, she fits right next to X and Zero as a professional and it makes sense.

Now this is a little off topic but this kinda stuff really goes off the rails with the megaman zero series with Ciel… the only solace in that is Zero was pretty much immune to her advances, but still it was unneeded

now an addendum, I just think megaman really does not need suggestive crap like this, and I really blame Keiji Inafune for trying to bring this sort of fan service into the series(look at the gunvolt series…yeah), so I am glad he is gone, maybe if we ever get an x9 we won't need to deal with shoehorned pseudo-romance



Yes that scene is really really stupid, and another shoehorned in female, we know absolutely nothing about Iris, she’s just in game literally two times solely as a shallow plot device for the repliforce shenanigans, there really shouldn’t be love interests and what-not in the megaman series, this is an action game about robots, go read hentai if you want something else



What do you think a megaman game would be like where X goes maverick and Zero is the main character? I mean like real X, no copy or anything, maybe a spinoff of x5 where X gets the sigma virus which might make sense if you've played through as Zero before


Ive never played a fucking Mega Man game before (really) what's the best game to play?


Are you into a more classic platformer or something more advanced? It's important to know what series I should recommend


Can't go wrong with MM 2 or MMX


I'm going to have to jump in here, I'd recommend megaman 6 or megaman x2, mm2 is really rough and there are crappy bosses, mmx is unrefined and doesnt have any interesting bosses


Trying to get the different endings and secrets
