Mega Man 11



Coming to all next generation consoles. No more retro handjob stuff, though hardly revolutionary either. Skip to near the end of the video to see the gameplay footage.

Not a fan of the superfluous sound effects, especially the grunt after every powered shot. But overall, I think Number 11 looks Mighty nice! Thanks for sharing!

People are saying it already looks better than Mighty No. 9... but I can't remember much about that game anyway.

Here's some official art of Megaman with one of his new powerups. Incredibly cool IMO!

Looks fairly good, better than MN9 and I am really happy it was not ****** MM2 retro-thing.

Game doesn't look that great, it looks no worse than Mighty No. 9, and I'm not trying to diss it, MN9 looks like an ok game, I don't understand all the hate it got, did people forget Mega Man is fairly simple to begin with?

I'm not a big fan of the SNES/PSX 7/8 mega man's I preferred the 9/10 NES style remakes, the blue bomber just didn't control how I'd like in those two games and this game seems to be having the same problem.

With that said I'm hyped, I don't expect this game to be amazing but it'll scratch my Mega Man itch. I can already see the reviews being mediocre and people complaining how Capcom hates Mega Man when there really isn't much they can do with the classic series anymore besides this.

I'm mostly wondering about the Legacy collections on Switch, if they include both collections in one game I'll definitely get it for Switch instead of just waiting for a sale on Steam. I wonder how the X Collections will work, hope they're not individual releases. I'm still bummed Mega Man & Bass and the other spin-offs aren't included in the legacy collections when they were included in the PS2 collections.

I can agree with this. I enjoyed 9 and 10 a lot, but I reeeeeeally did not get everyone going apes*** over them. It was way, way too far a step backward. A step everyone apparently loved - so, I mean, what do I know anyway - but still. They didn't even keep basic changes from Mega Man 3, which in itself would probably still be a bit too far back.

It said a bit to me that 10 wasn't as praised as 9 was, when I thought it was the better game (or at least I liked it more of the two). The nostalgia hit had worn off by then and I think people had to take a bit better stock of everything.

I like both of those games, but eight always did feel more like a weird detour than an actual evolution of the past seven, which is maybe why they let the classic series lie there for over a decade after it.

Because MN9 played like crap and look like a generic flash game or low budget MegaMan clone (which it was).

I just never was big fan of MM2, my favorite of NES MegaMan games is MM3, so all this masturbating about MM2-style remakes made me feel disappointed.

MM7 and MM8 I really loved. As well as MegaMan & Bass on SNES.

That's what the hipster nostalgiacs forget -- the thing about nostalgia? It wears off.

I enjoyed 7 and 8... enough to play them for a couple of hours and then completely forget about them. It was less about them feeling not like a proper evolution of the NES ones and more by that point that I was just tired of fighting the same variation of water, fire, and metal villains leading up to yet another Dr. Wily fight. Those games never bothered to grow. Then for an encore? Capcom literally makes 9 and 10 in 8-bit graphics like the first bunch. I couldn't care less about those.

Quote:
nos∑tal∑gia
nšˈstaljə,nəˈstaljə/Submit
noun
a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.
"I was overcome with acute nostalgia for my days in college"
synonyms: reminiscence, remembrance, recollection; More
something done or presented in order to evoke feelings of nostalgia.
"an evening of TV nostalgia"
Once the longing for the lost has been satisfied, you can't use the same appeal because the thing is already at the forefront of the mind.

I'm the type who rarely gets any game new, so maybe I get around to playing a game 3 or more years after release. That way, I can appreciate it on its merits instead of it being a shiny new/old? thing.
