Dear Scott, Mega Man 9 (wtf?)

Last week word was leaked that a Mega Man 9 was forthcoming. “Oh, wow!” people said. The common conclusion was that it would be a high quality, big production to bring Mega Man into the current generation. Sure, Mega Man never went away, but his games of the last 10 years have been primarily spin-offs and have not used the latest technology. Apparently, Mega Man 9 will continue that tradition . . .

Yes, that is a screenshot for the upcoming Mega Man 9. Apparently, it will be a downloadable Wii Ware game that, as you can see, takes great pains to look just like the 6 NES Mega Man games. I could see the appeal of such a game . . . if it weren’t for the fact that there are already 6 NES Mega Man games! And it’s a step back because Mega Man 7 & 8 were released for SNES and PlayStation and have updated graphics. Plus, wasn’t Mega Man & Bass for SNES basically Mega Man 9? Sure, maybe the game will be great but what’s the point, since I and most people haven’t even beaten Mega Man 1-6? I don’t git it.

  1. blah. i’ll play it for sure if i run across somebody who has it, but unless they add some cool new features… who gives a FUCK?

    i like the graphics. i think the screenshot looks good. going “retro” is fine, but you can’t go “retro” by making the game the exact same as all the others. then you’re just playing rockabilly or something.
