I love being right.

Have you seen the Star Force anime yet? I
t's on Toonami Jetstream, and, so far it's only
mangled the characters a little bit.
You should watch it.
www.toonamijetstream.com
You can access it from there, but I hope you've got a fast internet.
Tell me what you think. I like it.

I got Star Force Leo to help me through a six hour drive as much as possible. It's fun, I like it, ect ect, thats not why I'm posting.

No, why I'm posting is because the Achedemic Decathelon topic this year is the Civil War. What does this have to Megaman? Nothing really. Except for the first few lines of the song "The Bonnie Blue Flag" otherwise known as, "We Are the Band of Brothers". Which is like BrotherBands....except backwards.

Sadly, I first heard the song while playing Star Force. Now whenever I play Star Force I get it stuck in my head. Among other Civil War songs. I can actually think up half the charactors in civil war uniforms singing the song....its kinda funny, y'know, especially since I imagine the girl charactors doing it too (and theres no girl singers in the song).

We are the Band of Brothers, we're native to the soil!
Fighting for our liberty, with treasure blood and toil!
And when our rights were threatened, the cry rose near and far,
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!
Hurrah! Hurrah! For sovergn rights, HURRAH!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!

They're all marching round and singing in my head....dance little spritelings, dance! XD

I enjoy Mega Man Legends, however, I do not see how they have the least thing to do with Mega Man himself.
Mega Man=Mega Man
X=future Mega Man
Zero=X games character
ZX=Biometals
Battle Network=alternate universe
Legends=?

Bumping this ancient thread with relevance.
Megaman 9.
Hard as hell. Even more so when considering some of the stuff on the Challenge List.
Completely Retro, down to an option to turn on NES style flicker.
One of the robots is Splash WOman.
The story intro made me laugh out loud. And Roll is cute.
Jewel Man seems kinda fruity. No comment on Plug Man. At least he seems angry about the name.
I hate that dragon in Magma Mans stage. But not as much as the metool just on the far edge of a jump over death in plug mans...

Its good.

I, too, have found Mega Man 9 to be very difficult. I've tried time and again of time trial mode, but the only weapon I can beat the dragon with is the fire eapon, the very one I'm attempting to obtain. I'm also having trouble with the elephants on Concrete Man's stage, and the lifts on Tornado Man's. Otherwise known as the return of the Guts Man lifts.

1) Which dragon are you referring to, the mini-boss in Magma Man's stage? If so, you may find the Black Hole Bomb to be useful. It seems to do critical damage AND gives you the satisfaction of sucking off his segments and giving him a mopey face until he reaches the other side of the screen. Just make sure you activate it so the dragon runs into it.

2) The elephants are tricky, but they have a pattern. The first one shoots its ball straight. Jump over it, return a few shots, but start running left soon so you don't get sucked in, and lastly jump over the returning ball. It takes a while if you need to focus on surviving, but that's the beauty of practice.

The second one bounces the ball. It's very easy to dodge if you just stand right in front of the green ball. It'll go right over you to the other side of the screen. Just like the first elephant, return fire, then run left to avoid the ball on its return.

The last one is a testament to Capcom's ability to layer things on. It's just like the first elephant, but with two thin pitfalls. Do the same thing you did with the first elephant, but use your limited space wisely. The key is to be daring enough to squeeze out those few shots before the ball comes back. Overall, the Hornet Chaster or the Tornado Blow (*chortle*) could be of use if you just can't aim the buster or make good time.

3) I actually found the lifts to be no big deal since there's no danger of being dropped off if you wait for the opportunity. If you find the jump to be just a few pixels away from your range, then wait until you're on top, then jump so you reposition yourself further ahead on the platform. If the timing's off, do a short hop so you'll be spinning differently than you were before. If waiting just drives you nuts, keep short-hopping until you reach the next platform.

The real challenge is getting the Mega Balls to jump from _beneath_ the platform onto one that is _below_ you. Try to apply Space Invader logic (aim at where it will be, har har Futurama) and shout "Geronimo!" No, seriously, do that. It'll make everything seem less like serious business. If that won't do, "It's game time!" will suffice before you plummet to your death. The game won't wipe itself off your hard drive if you mess it up too many times, so the ol' "grin and bear it" returns from the penultimate turn of the decade. Problem solving is key, here. Keep a mind for cause and effect of what jumping here means this far down the road, and it's simple enough. They put the spikes way out of the way, in my opinion.

If I'm way off the mark or too late with my advice, well, ships happen.

Damn, beaten to it by Cap. And probably already gotten past these bits already anyway. But:

Quote:
Tornado Blow also works well on the dragon, but you're probably wanting to save that for the boss. Unless you're going to farm some enemies on the next screen for weapon energy. Black Hole Bomb is still my first choice. :3

Tornado Man...since I tried to take him on without a weapon effective against him, I ended up going through his stage quite a few times and ended up getting ridiculously used to it. I think the challenges I ended up getting from there as a result was Heavy Metal, Speed Metal, Hard Rock.

The elephants....the first one, you can just stick on the ladder and shoot it, but its worth jumping down and practicing jumping the ball and staying in the centre, as practice for the third elephant. The second...what cap said, staying right in front and shooting, then running hard left just before he starts sucking. Depending on what order you're taking the bosses, the weapon from magma man seems to work GREAT on them. One full charge to the face and a couple extra shots takes them down really fast. :3


I'm currently on hornet man. I hate that damn flower. I beat it once, then continued on up to fortress stage 2, but since I died against the flower due to stupidly slipping off the platform and want to get the no-dying thing...

Download Proto Man mode. THEN we can talk about the evils of the rotating flower of fragrant doom.
