Live Blogging! Friday Night with Tequila, and Megaman X!

That's right ladies and Gentleman, I'm flat broke and can't afford to go out tonight. So, what beats going out on the town?


Megaman. 

Megaman and Tequila.

 Tall Cooler Glass x1, Shot of tequila x1.5, Fill with OJ, Top with grenadine = Tequila Sunrise
So, follow along (or not) as I boot up an old favorite of mine and write down my thoughts after completing each level. We'll see how far I get before I get to frustrated or drunk to continue!

Let's do this!
11:45 PM, Title Screen: Its iconic. Its awesome. It brings back memories and its got me pumped.    
11:48 PM: Dropped immediately into a crumbling cityscape. Great way to start a game.Shit yeah! Giant flying wasp thingies. You guys remember these? This is how you know this game is going to be good.

11:50 PM: Riding robot cars! If you played this game, you know how much fun I'm having right now.

 Imagine the wind in his hair.
11:54 PM Oh man, Sigma got me guys. This doesn't look good. How will Megaman survive this?

 That looks painful.

Thanks Zero! You're the man! You blow that bastards arm clean off!

From here, Zero tells me I will need to Power up if I want to reach my potential and defeat Sigma. Well I'm ready assholes. Lets bring these Robot Masters on!

Making myself another drink. The snow guy is easy right? I'm going to go and try and kill the penguin robot ice man. Frost Penguin? What's his name? We'll find out when I megabuster his ass back to the ice age that's for goddamn sure.

 Chill Penguin. Right, right...
12:08: Why the hell is this Evil Sigma bastard basing his evil robots on fluffy forest animals? I mean, bunnies? Really?
 Megaman is not impressed

Tequilla continues to be pleasant. I'm coming for you Danny DeVito! Robot bunnies or no!

12:13 Now I'm in a cave blowing up bats and spiky wheels. Then a capsule with Dr. Light is blocking my way? This seems pretty intense. I guess I forgot about these things.
 Shits getting real.

12:16: Oh yeah! He powers you up! I can dash now, so that's cool I guess. 

12:20: Hopped into a giant mech-suit and used it to kill some robot dragonflies. 
Awww yeah! Boss time! Let's see if I can beat him without dieing! I am getting a little tipsy so, so we'll see.



12:22: Aaaaaah! He got me. I was doing really well, and then his pattern changed. Lets try this again.
12:25: ...aaaand there we go. 2nd try is not to shabby I suppose.

Suck it DeVito. 
I'll finish my drink while I ponder what level to do next. Fire right? I think it's the fire one...

12:36: Got my new drink and I'm on to battle... 

This should be good 

12:42: Already made it to Flame Mammoth. I'm pretty sure that if I hadn't beaten Chill Penguin first, this level would have had a lot more fire in it. I think, beating certain bosses alters the levels of others. Interesting. I found a health tank, and an E tank on this level so that's cool. I'm feeling more and more tipsy so I'm pretty curious how this fight will go.
 Lets rumble!

12:45: Aaaaahhh, he got me once. Same thing as Chill Penguin. I need to go into these fights with more than half health. Turns out he's not weak against Ice Shot either.
12:47: Almoooost got him.

 Little more....

 12:50: Got the bastard. Next is.. forest man? He's a lizard right? Also: more tequila.
 Fuck yeah!
I really do love this game. Everytime I play it, I notice all the little details. Like how the miners laugh at you when they manage to hit you with one of their mining pics etc. Great game.

12:56: Sting Chameleon. Alright, I remember this guy. He jumps around in the trees.

12:59: Going through the level. Fighting off robot lumberjacks, worms, and grasshoppers. Then I remembered a secret and wall jumped up to face this guy. If I remember right he's kind of hard. We'll see. More and more tipsy as time goes by.
 You have to hit him in his really tiny eye. It's kind of hard.

1:03: Okay, I think I understand his pattern, Just need to either wall jump over his arm, or dash under him. I got this.
 Wall jump X!
1:03: Beat him! Looks like I get another capsule.

 Wow. That's actually really good.
Nice.
 Tequila!
1:11: AM: The level continues, but the only real highlight is this awesome mech fight.
 Inspiration for the movie "Avatar"
1:17: AM: Found you sting Chameleon! Full health here. Let's roll!
1:29: AM: He got me once, but I had the last laugh. See you in hell you scaly bastard.
 Ha!

I think I might be taking a break for now. I've succesfully had enough fun, am plenty drunk and I do have class tomorrow. On that note: Good night internet! Get some sleep!

Megaman X for the SNES really is not that hard. Plus it was one of my favorite games growing up.

Megaman 9 was much much harder.

good times playing that game. i remember being little and playing that. i thought that game was hard when i played it. it could be that i was young though. i never got to beat the game. i even got to the last guy also. good times though.

Still one of my favorite games that I go back too. I specially bought the X collection for the purpose of when I get that MMX itch I can get the only X games that matter on one disc.
