Mega Man 9!


Mega Man 9!, originally uploaded by thegetupkid.

It's out today for the Wii! If you have any interest in classic gaming or the Mega Man series, you probably don't need me to tell you to download this ASAP. For those of you that haven't heard, Capcom decided to make a brand new Mega Man game for all of the current consoles' download services (wiiware, psn store, xbl marketplace) using 8-bit graphics and music. For someone who grew up anticipating every new Mega Man release and saved up $50 for each one of those games in cartridge format, I couldn't ask for anything more.

This game is HARD. Like, hair-pulling, controller-throwing hard. Chris and I have been playing for a couple hours, we've gotten game overs at every stage, and we've only managed to make it to one boss (Galaxy Man) and he kicked Chris's ass pretty quickly, with only the one life left. The music is also incredible, especially Tornado Man's stage. I love everything about this game so far.

The Wii version of MM9 incorporates an achievement system similar to Xbox Live's. Most of them are impossible, like beating an entire level without shooting, or beating the game 30 times. I personally love that the game is so tough and unforgiving. It actually requires patience and skill, unlike so many games these days. You can catch Mega Man 9 on the Playstation Network Store on Thursday and the Xbox Live Marketplace October 1.

I'm so happy they kept the difficulty level of the originals and the music and the graphics.

It's been a while since I've been truly challenged by a game. I can't wait to get a 360 again.

These lv handbags have loads of space inside, allowing the woman to carry all the necessary stuff around. For the seasoned globetrotter, lv wallets has created the unique looking Travel Shopper set of shoulder louis vuitton purses . For the woman on the move, these bags are must-have accessories.
