So I get through Galaxy Man with relative ease. So far, the only boss I've tried to take on is Jewel Man. I haven't even reached the asshole yet. At first, I had problems at the place with the falling boulders. Then I get to the point where I get through that easily. Then I get to the shit with the swinging platforms and you have to jump between spikes. God damnit.

I beat/unlocked everything in that in one day when I first got it several years ago. To this day, it's just about the only reason I hold onto my PS2, despite being strapped for cash, to pick up and play from time to time.

I really wish I could play Mega Man 9, but no Wii, and there's no way I'd ever buy one. Something I was pissed to never have released was a Mega Man X Collection...man, that would have been sweet....

You can get it on Xbox marketplace too.

Still does me no good...have no 360 (used to have a regular 'Box, but never bothered with online) and will never have one of those either.

How did I miss that!? I'm seriously going out to get it tomorrow, as well as these so-called Mega Man X7 and 8.

I really don't know how you weren't aware. Only reason I never picked it up was because I wanted it on Xbox. My PS2 is crap and I don't have a working Gamecube controller.

I was well on my way "out" of games by then. And when Anniversary came out, there was a lot of speculation about an X collection, especially when the numbers for Anniversary were a solid success, but then it just kept taking forever and forever for anybody besides industry outsiders to say that they want it and they think it is/should be coming. By the time it was announced I was probably paying utterly no attention to videogames.

Wouldn't luck have it that Mega Man X Collection for PS2 is currently impossible to find a copy at a reasonable price new or even used. I looked up Mega Man X7 and X8 as well, and I want those now too. Those are easier to find, but look to be in crappy condition, plus I want to play X1-X6 first anyway. And it's looking like I'm gonna have to shell out ~$40 for a used copy and hope that it wasn't used as somebody's coaster/ashtray.

X3 in the collection sucks because they went with the PSX version and its totally lame remixed soundtrack over the awesome SNES game's soundtrack, and X6 has the Japanese voice acting removed. Also the emulation of the SNES titles isn't perfect. Aside from that though, I guess it's okay, and if you don't want to shell out money for all the original games separately, it might be good to find somehow.

It's really my only option. I'm not about to buy an SNES again fer chrissakes. And really, those things are bothersome, but I'd get over them pretty quick (i.e., immediately). It just sucks that I have to pay a primo price for it, though,

Mega Man 9 is fucking awesome. It was tough the first time I played it, but a lot of its difficulty comes from memorization. I guess reflexes help too, but if you know where everything is, you're much more likely to get through.

I don't ever recall other Mega Man games being like that. Some parts it seems like it's impossible to get by on your first try unless it's dumbluck.

One thing about nearly every obstacle in the game is they first show you how the obstacle works in a sort of "training" room, and then the next room is when they put the obstacle they just demonstrated to use. For example, in Jewel Man's stage, you come across the swinging platforms, and it's easy for the first part, but then they start making it harder. You have to learn how exactly the swinging platforms move in order to get by.

I can't get past the platform where you've got to make it swing all the way across the room, then you've got to drop off the edge between the spikes in the floor.

I'm salivating at the thought of playing this game...I'll have to go to a friend's place who has a Wii and make him or her buy it. It's only like $5 right?

I still need to get the X-Collection for PS2, but the higher-than-expected prices are going to force me to wait.

Mega Man 9 is definitely worth the ten bucks.


Loxxoo, you get past that pit by swinging the platform straight to the left or right, and then jumping off into the hole. You make sort of a back and forth movement across the screen when you do this.

Well... after not playing Mega Man 9 for months, I decided to give it a go again tonight. I beat Jewel Man on my first try. I made it through that platform section on my first try. Was a shocker. Then I went through Concrete Man's level. Made it through the level with relative ease. That third elephant used to trip me up all the god damn time before. But this time I just got the timing down and now I get through it with pretty much no problem. Concrete Man himself killed me like 2 times, but then I got him on my last try. Then I went to Splash Woman's level. I was trying to remember what was hard about her level. Then I jumped down a screen and fell on top of a spike. I remembered. That was my last life, so I just quit.

All in all, surprising night for me on MM9. I was kicking ass. And Mega Man 10 is coming soon.

Glad to hear you're making progress on 9 Happy

I can't wait for 10 to come out. While I hope they eventually go back to non-NES styled Mega Man games, I know I'll have a ton of fun with it. Plus it comes out on WiiWare the day before my birthday :[face_excited]:
