Some thoughts on video games: January 20XX
I felt like writing about games without worrying about the fact it was a review. So I'm going to put out a monthly list of games and my thoughts on each one. With Alex starting to play through all the mainline Mega Man games I thought it would be fun to play through some of the side games. So the gist of this list will be mega powered. I'll be including some screenshots of each game in this beginning paragraph.
Mega Man V Ending: MMV has quite a few cutscenes. They even take control of Mega Man from the player in one scene. You might note this isn't in black and white since I played it on a Super Game Boy.
Mega Man Xtreme : I ran into a bug that stopped scrolling the screen. Seemed to have something to do with the final teleport after the boss rush. Had to reset the Game Boy Player to finish the game. Oh yeah, Zero is in this game as an item. Would have been nice if he was actually useful. My photos this time aren't as good.
Mega Man Powered Up : Dean Galloway has a great Wily voice. The yellow devil in this game felt even more annoying since it gave me less room to move around the room. Mega Man running through the credits is still a cool way to end a game.
Mega Man Maverick Hunter X : Huh I don't have anything to say here that I didn't already go over down below.
Mega Man: The Power Battle : A nice touch was the fact that the boss before the final one changes depending on which bosses you fight. The backgrounds change slightly too like changing Wily's background into a light show.
Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters : Seems a bit odd that a random arcade game would have an ending that links up Mega Man to X. Duo may look visually different from the rest but he still plays like them.
Bionic Commando Elite Forces : So just about everything in this game points to it being in the future. After all, everyone has a bionic monocle. Yet one of the antagonists is a classic executioner who uses a ax. Since I didn't mention it below at the end of each level the player also gets an item that will help out in a few different ways.
