“I’ve been gaming since I stood on milk crates to reach the controls. New games, retro games, you name it, I probably love it.”

  • I’m not sure how “hilarious” this game is, other than the fact that by this point in the series the formula was rather outdated. Of course, despite that, Mega Man 5 is still a good game, even though perhaps not the most original.

    One thing I wonder is if this means a new Mega Man game is on the horizon? Previous games made it to the Virtual Console before the releases of MM9 and MM10, so maybe a MM11 or X9 will be coming soon?

    • That’s what makes it amusing, is that it was formula when it came out and yet we all piled on to buy it and play it, least in my circle of friends at the time heh. The memories associated with it more than the game itself I suppose.

      That’s entirely possible, though it could also mean we might see him in the eventual Smash Brothers that’s coming for 3DS and WiiU XD
