Yeah they should release a pre-existing game to xbla instead of an entirely new installment for the first time in god knows how long

Can someone please tell me what so great about this new one, because to me it looks like crap compared to the other ones :S

Looks awesome. Too bad the d-pad is a big steaming pile of garbage. For this game I guess I'm going to have to look into some instructions on how to fix the d-pad. *sigh*

Its all about the Old School.

People that didnt grow up with a NES and the original Megaman wont understand or appreciate this gem that Capcom has delivered us.

forget old school, this is garbage, they probably spent $90 developing this, and will charge people who think going backwards in gaming is retro coolness , $10 to purchase it when they should be charging $1.. proof positive that nostalgia parts fools from their money.

Sorry, but you have to be pretty jaded not to see the pure win that this game is made out of.

sorry, i've played the games on emulators, i'm burnt out on old school gaming,
Capcom is screwing gamers in so many ways, and you see it as some sort of gift..give me a break, you're part of the problem, this game is just a generic cash in on an old franchise , dynasty warriors retro style.

I absolutely agree.. The whole "it was better in the old days" idea is just a big pile of bs. If you actually play the games you thought were awesome back then, TODAY, you'll realize how far games have come.
And as such, what a big step back it is to release a game like this and pretend that its "old-school". It just lacks everything we have come to expect and love from games.

Why not make a current-gen new Megaman?? Can still be in 2d (gameplay-wise) and a platformer, but with amazing physics (physics puzzles too instead of the same old god damn boring "get key, press switch, ride elevator" stuff).
And destructible enviroments perhaps? Being in 2d-levels, they could do some amazing stuff.
Why dont they even try?
Its just to milk out some quick cash. Like Pacman being released for xbarcade etc.

And no, im not a 14 year old gamern00b.. I played all the old megaman and mario games from the beginning.

You can't get a true Megaman experience without slowdown and sprite flicker.

I'd be surprised if people wouldn't cheer on such a feature.

Mega Man has puzzles?

You're right, by holding rusty knives to your throat and forcing you to pay money for a game you don't want, they're totally screwing you. It'd one thing if the game was optional, but threatening to nuke an entire country just because YOU won't buy MM9 is pushing it too far. God forbid they'd ever make a game (much like MM9) that actually pleased a lot of people, how dare they cater for an audience that wants a bit of nostalgia and enjoyed playing the original Mega Man series? HOW DARE THEY! GRAPHIX OR GTFO CAPCOM. G.T.F.O.

LOL, would have been nice if they had 2 modes a nostalgia mode and a 720/1080p reworked mode.

Playing this on a large screen is guna be horrible.

Dynasty Warriors retro style is Dynasty Wars, a 2D side scrolling beat 'em up by... Capcom! :D I seem to remember that there were sequels on the PS1 before Koei took over the franchise with the Dynasty Warriors games. Check out the slogan on the poster for it, pretty prophetic don't you think?

I thought it was OK, although I only played it about once or twice so maybe I would have changed my mind over prolonged play, lol!

I'm not entirely thrilled with Megaman 9.. but that official Capcom T-shirt is priceless. If they packaged this game on an NES cart, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. If you're going for nostalgia, you might as well go all the way!

About the game


What's up?
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Sdarts: good god, its not an awful update, but some of it bothers me . the way the animation is speed up on the jumps, the updated collor pallete, even the "take" on small things like the gameover (0 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Red Dead Redemption on PlayStation Now Subscription: [url] Those on PC who never played it, can do so now through PS Now which has a 7 days free trial. (17 minutes ago)

    Melmoth which could be more of a problem for multiplatform games than the GPU. (22 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth The GPU part of the Switch will probably be good enough. I recon the CPU won't be close to even the (relatively weak) Jaguar that's in PS4/X1. (23 minutes ago)

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: It's hard to judge, we need to wait for official screenshots or video. Only way we will be able to tell. Though I'm sure Nintendo doesn't want comparisons to be made. (33 minutes ago)
