Since there doesn’t seem to be a thread solely on the Mega Man series, I thought I should make my own!
 
Anything related to the Blue Bomber can be discussed here. Whether you love the Classic series, X, Zero, ZX, Legends, Battle Network, Starforce, the Archie Comics, or even the Ruby-Spheres cartoon. Just try not to use this thread as a way to discuss your hate for Capcom’s recent decisions. Yes, I too think that the cancellation of many games was tragic and you all have reasons to be pissed off about that. Just try to keep the drama to a minimum please.
 
Thank you.

I love Mega Man games! I managed to get a download of Megaman 8 and beat it about a month ago. Before I had Megaman 10 on an old Wii (which broke unfortunately), and beat that game too. I’ve only played games from the classic series however…

I see. Original and X are the more iconic incarnations but I know there’s a lot of love for the Battle Network series out there.
 
@Latios381  
Awesome. I only play the classic series as well. Nothing against the other series though. Funny enough is that the time I got myself into Mega Man games was shortly right after I became a brony.

TBH, I liked Command Mission’s system better than Battle Network’s, although it kinda bugged me that it used a trinity of elementals instead of actually incorporating the weapon copy system into gameplay (sure, Axel could transform into one of the bosses, but that’s not really the same thing, plus I never could figure out how to get him to do that).
 
…seriously though, if Trainers can catch wild Pokemon, why can’t X copy a boss’s weapon? Hell, so many other rpg’s have the bosses drop special items as loot, so you’d think they would’ve made an rpg where Megaman still utilizes his trademark, albeit recontextualized. (In retrospect, you’d think they would’ve make an rpg for the classic series before the X series; it already had a larger cast that would’ve lent themselves better to a party without the need for so many OCs, plus Megaman’s many pets could’ve been summons).

Quick question before I sleep how do you all feel about Axl? I like him, but think he’s got a bit of Silver the Hedgehog syndrome where his flaws are mostly attributed to being introduced in a really bad game.

You know how megaman copies the weapons of bosses?  
Axl is a prototype who’s main purpose is to copy everything about his foe.  
Gameplay wise Axl can use a special DNA on enemies and if it kills the foe they’re drop a DNA core and when Axl picks it up he’ll turn into said enemy. Though like I said before about the Silver syndrome, it’s underwhelming because X7’s mechanics were real bad. I’ve heard that they did it better in x8 and command mission, but I haven’t played those yet.
 
Story wise, Axl used to be a part of a Maverick hunting team called Red Alter (like who @SeraphimDawn is talking about) until R.A. started act like the very mavericks they original planned to fight.

You didn’t mention the Archie comics but I assume we can talk about those too
 
If you even halfway like Megaman or just like science fiction you check ‘em out
 
They show how a good adaptation is done taking what’s in the original but adding new stuff and interesting twists for instance || like in volume 3 the Megaman 2 story where Dr. Wily planted a virus in his robotmasters so every time Rock got their power he was corrupted ||

Oh cool, so he’s like a Reploid Changeling? XD  
I would check those games out…..but I’m a Nintendo gamer and those games are on the Playstation consoles. (But Command Mission is also on Gamecube, right?) Plus, I don’t have that much motivation to play the X series.
 
@AppleJackFrost  
I just created this thread yesterday. It will grow over time. ;)
 
@Virgil Stormblade  
I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes by. To be honest, I never expected him to be a Mega Man fan in the first place.
 
@Background Pony #6DBD  
How could I forget the Archie comics? I’ve been reading them lately and discussing them here is definitely allowed. ;) Should I edit my starting post to let everyone know?
 
Oh yes. The Mega Man comics are really fun and interesting. I’ve currently just finished the Dawn of X story arc.  
Its quite a shame that one of my biggest internet enemies, ProfessorMegaman, DESPISES these comics with a burning fury. (He liked them at first until after the Mega Man 2 story arc.) He even tried making a freaking petition to fire Ian Flynn, in which he failed.

Nah I don’t think you need edit anything just saying “Anything related to the Blue Bomber can be discussed here.” was pretty clear I just wanted to remind everyone those comics existed
 
Something else worth mentioning is the mangas the Megamix/Gigamix series I’ve not read them myself but I hear good things

Personally, I’m part of the camp that thinks the first X game was the ideal in the franchise: it brought together all the best elements from the classic series, established the elements that defined the X series, and still retained elements that make it unique to the other games (like how a stage would change when you beat a certian boss).
