2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

Did Capcom make a deal with the Devil?!

Posted April 4th, 2010 at 12:17 PM by Mario The World Champion

When I heard the news that Capcom was making Mega Man 10, I was excited. I was one of the many, many people who got Mega Man 9 and loved it, mainly due to the fact that it went back to the old school Mega Man graphics and gameplay I grew up on.

However, since I got an Xbox 360, I had to wait all freakin' month for it to come out on the 360 and the Wii and PSN got it before us 360 users. So, I got it on the day it came out and I thought it was good so far, but there's one inescapable fact about this game that I don't like.

IT'S HARD!

I don't know if it's because I haven't played old school Mega Man in months or Capcom made a deal with the Devil to increase the overall difficulty of the game. Maybe It's me but the weapons seem to be more of a hassle to use this time, taking longer to be more effective (Sheep Man's Thunder Wool weapon and Solar Man's Solar Blaze) or you have to do something else to use them right for maximum damage (Commando Man's Commando Bomb, which you can aim or Chill Man's Chill Spike, which you have to let it fall to the ground first to spike and hope your enemy hits it.)

I don't know if it's me or not, but the Robot Masters seem to be better at avoiding attacks as well. Chill Man always seems to avoid the Solar Blaze weapon by jumping out of the way after he attacks me twice and I manage to fire off a burst when he does stop. Blade Man's a pain to hit with the Commando Bomb because as soon as I gain my bearings after he attacks me, I launch the Commando Bomb at him and right before it hits the wall and spreads out, he leaps away and attacks me again.

Now don't get me started on Wily's Castle. One of these days, I want to rip off Wily's eyebrows with duct tape. The bosses there are NUTS! They damage me badly and when I use what weapons are effective on them, they don't hurt them as much. In the first stage alone, I wasted 4 Energy tanks just trying to survive the first stage.

Maybe I'm getting old and I'm losing my touch at old school Mega Man games. Or maybe I need to use better tactics on the bosses by playing them more. Damn. I need to go to Gamefaqs for a walkthrough or go to Youtube for videos.

    That's why you have an easy mode, but I find MM9 to be even harder than MM10, and don't get me started on MM4 or 5. Pure insanity.

    I mean, I beat MM10 with Protoman double-damage thingy, and I found Wily's Castle to be decently easy for the MM standards. There is a prawn-like enemy in the third level that loves sprouting out lives and keeps respawning after the balancing platforms of death and before the block devil boss of doom you should abuse, I got 5 lives in 15 minutes of charge blasts.

    But yeah, looking up for the gamefaqs guides is really helpful, I myself made a post in OG commenting how the bosses were horrible... but some of them are a joke if you find the right weapon (Sheep Man, Strike Man, Solar Man, Nitro Man, Wily Capsule, Wood Man thingy).

    But Mega Man is known for being HARD, with caps, so I'm glad they didn't change it. You always have an easy mod there.

    Btw, the Block Devil boss of doom dies with the strike ball thingy, it takes as many hits as weapon energy you have. Remember to collect E/W tanks! You get two free M ones in Wily's Castle.

    Also, at least I'm glad they did a deal to make awesome music. Because it's not natural that 70% of the levels have awesome soundtracks.
