Mega Man X

Story

Front Cover

The first in the X series, Mega Man X is also the first game to introduce Zero. Set many years after the original Mega Man series, the world is populated by many robots that interact with the humans. A man named Dr. Cain, during an investigative dig, discovers a capsule containing " X", as well as instructions for the opening of the capsule, written by none other than Dr. Light, the creator of the original Mega Man! Dr. Cain opens the capsule, releasing X from his many years of containment, and he realizes that X is much more than an average robot. He has true Artificial Intelligence.

Using X as his inspiration, Dr. Cain creates robots, classified as Reploids. Not too long afterwards, a virus infects many of these Reploids, and causes them to turn Maverick, killing humans and destroying towns. The strongest of the Mavericks, Sigma, rallies all of the other Mavericks together to take over the world.

Now, to combat these new menaces to the world, X, along with the enigmatic Zero, band together to defeat Sigma and his minions.

Mega Man Battle & Chase

The first 3-D Mega Man game ever made, Mega Man Battle & Chase was never released in the United States. More comparable to Mario Kart than any other Mega Man game, this is a racing game through-and-through. After defeating any other competitor, you can pick a part of their vehicle that you want to keep for yourself. If you beat them enough times, you can earn their entire vehicle for use.

There are a total of 12 playable characters. Wily and Duo both need to be unlocked.
