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 and Tequila.
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.
11:54 PM Oh man, Sigma got me guys. This doesn't look good. How will Megaman survive this?
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.
12:08: Why the hell is this Evil Sigma bastard basing his evil robots on fluffy forest animals? I mean, bunnies? Really?
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
12:50: Got the bastard. Next is.. forest man? He's a lizard right? Also: more tequila. 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.
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.
1:03: Beat him! Looks like I get another capsule.
1:11: AM: The level continues, but the only real highlight is this awesome mech fight.
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.

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!
