I found it to be pretty easy, but still a lot of fun. Definitely worth an hour out of your day.

Attacks were all ranged and there was a nice mixture of the two differing genres. The game only took me $3.75 to beat and I found it to be pretty easy. I have to say though that the game is incredibly strange. Never really knowing anything about the universe, playing a strange mixture of Flash Gordon-esque sci-fi and anthropomorphic saturday morning cartoon show was a weird twist. It had full voices and was very enjoyable!

The arcade game is very much in the style of a lot of 90s, Konami beat 'em ups. So if you like stuff like TMNT, The Simpsons, X-Men Arcade, etc.

1. Pokemon Leaf Green (GBA)
2. Super Mario Bros. (SNES - All Stars)
3. Super Godzilla (SNES)
4. Mega Man (NES) *new

I have to say that if this was my first experience with Mega Man, I would have probably dismissed the rest of the series. Luckily it wasn't and Mega Man II captured my interest enough as a kid to keep me coming back for more. Although a good game, it's definitely not the shining star of the series in my opinion.

I thought Megaman 1 was awesome as a kid.

I think the original Mega Man still kicks ass and is one of the best NES games. It just really gets overshadowed by the sequels because they are so good. It kind of has a different feel than the rest of the NES games which I think kind of throws people off.

Unfortunately, I played MMX1 before any of the regular NES MM games, and they all feel too slow and clunky for me.

No matter how much I love most of the X games, I still prefer the original series even more and would argue they're actually faster in a sense. Levels are less complex and simpler so it's so easy to blast through those games and nothing about them feels slow to me. I grew up with them, but also didn't get around to the first game myself for the longest time, it's alright but I like the standards and formula 2 set in stone.

I think also just the simplicity of the visuals make the original Megaman series more speedy. There is so much stimulation in the X series from the background and foreground that really distract you and slow you up. That isn't saying the series is bad, gameplay wise I find it more enjoyable than the original series, but we are talking small differences.

Good points. It could be just the fact I played the newer games first. I may have loved this game if I had experience it before the others. Mega Man 2 was my first experience, and from there I had played Megaman X, which made it difficult for me to go back and play the older games as well. I prefer the X/Zero games overall, but I'm enjoying this little marathon (most of the time).

1- Fallout: New Vegas + Dead Money + Honest Hearts
2- Fallout 3 + Operation anchorage + The Pitt
3- Dead Island (PC)
4- Enslaved: Odyssey to the west (PS3)
5- Uncharted (PS3)
6- Uncharted 2 (PS3)

7- Yakuza Dead Souls
8- Resident Evil 6


Dead souls was a fun game while it lasted, shame that the monsters a unoriginal (and sometimes even rippoffs fron L4D) but in small dosis the game is good. I liked the characters and their histories (MAJIMA IS AWESOME), so i may try the real yakuza games on the ps2 and ps3.

Resident Evil 6

I will try to make it short but i have SO mnay things to say about this game... i love the franchise i this game makes so great stuff but also does some awful stuff.

Good: The games has changed the combat system now you can move and shoot, dogde at will, throw melee attacks as you wish. The creepy ambience is kind of back in Leons and Adas campaign i LOVED the graveyard and the lightnings that make you go blind and when you can see a zombie is in front of you.

Bad: Each character has his own set of weapons, so if you want to use a double barrel shotgun you must play as other character in that certain campaign (the only one that uses the elefant killer is Jake btw). The game is super linear is basycally a huge hallway with some baddies throw in even RE 5 give you some room to move around and make a strategy. The story is bad... but not good bad, bad bad, it gets really silly and has plot holes (The hate that Jake feels for Chris is never actually explained... it just happens for a "dramatic scene") The mutations are a mix bag some are cool, some are awful... guys with spider legs or grasshopper legs arent intimidating... they are hilarious to watch. Chris and Jake campaign is average, the cover system is something awkard to use and ech time you loose a cube of energy you get on the ground while your standing up again your enemies are alla around and give ANOTHER hit.

Ill stop right here seeing this post you may think i hate the game... but i not is just... disapointing and i wasn't hype or anything. Leon and Ada campaign are good, Leon only has zombies on so you can feel overwelmet sometimes when they are on great numbers, Ada mixes up a bit with zombies and j'avos (the enemies with guns) and this is how the should have been mixin up both things in a whole campaign. Really RE 6 tried to please everyone and it tried to be something is not.
