Why do so many people complain about the buttons being switched in the Anniversary Collection >.>
The Game Cube controller has a completely different button layout than an NES controller. It wasn't a huge deal and I actually preferred the buttons that way myself.
Anyways, i'm excited to download Mega Man 2 tomorrow and practice my buster only runs of the robot masters.

Ive always wanted to play Mega Man 2 on a handheld. Its one of my favourite 8-bit games to play and I'd love to have it on the go. I have to get some Eshop points, but I sadly can't go until the weekend.

Have never played Mega Man before, so excited to try this out.
Got a question: is it worth playing the original before Mega Man 2? After research it seems to mirror Mega Drive Sonic games - 1 throws the ball up, 2 knocks it out of the park. And then things go from good to samey to 'hmm'.

It's definitely worth playing the original first just to see how much the second game improved the formula. Really one of the best ways you could spend $10.

Its not really a complaint on my behalf I find it funny that for the GC they reversed the buttons while on the PS2 version the kept them the same as the NES and the Xbox version altogether had an option where you can map the buttons out to how you like. But yet when it came to the GC version they swapped the buttons just because the A button was the main button and than on top of that they couldnt put the option in to map out the buttons to your liking.

I actually love the original. The only downside I see is that it is shorter. (And then also you'll probably need to use the pause trick to beat some of the Wily bosses.)

I don't think there is a reason to play them in order, though. Most people seem to prefer MM2, so maybe go for that first, and if you like it, then tackle MM1.

I have a question for all you Mega Man masters out there. I want to give the Mega Man series a try. I'm thinking of starting with Mega Man II because I've heard many good things about it. Does this sound like a good plan?

Yep thats an excellent plan. I was introduced to the MM series with III but II is just as good IMO. Alot of people say the first one is a good place to start but IMO the first Megaman can turn a player off to the series. Two is nice cause it has the difficulty level so you can take it easy if its your first time playing a Megaman game and the basic formula for Megaman II stays for pretty much the whole series. Also you have the password feature which you didnt have in Megaman so if you do die you can just input a password and start from the last boss you beat rather than the whole game again like Megaman. If you like Megaman II than you can go back and try Megaman later on down the road like I did.

I already started with Mega Man II and I'm lovin' every single minute of it. Wow, it's that good! The only Mega Man I had played before was 'Dr. Wily's Revenge' on my ol' Game Boy and Game Boy Color systems. @skyyye I might tackle the first one as well.

I couldn't play it with the buttons switched. I would have rather gotten the anniversary collection on Gamecube, but I got it for PS2 to have the natural button layout.

If you're new to the series I see two ways to start.
1. Start with MM1 then play MM2 so you can see the progression of the series and how much it improves upon the formula. The downside is that Mega Man 1 can be frustrating and might turn you off the series.

2. Start with the second game and then play the first one to see how the series began. The downside to that is playing the first game after the second will inevitably feel like a step down and might hinder your enjoyment of it.

There is no right or wrong choice as long as you play the games in my eyes.

No but presumably sometime in March or April. I heard Mega Man II and Mega Man III are tied as the best in the series, but Mega Man II is supposedly a little bit better.

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

@MultiMarioSonic
I don't know where you heard that, but generally people say Dr. Wily's Revenge and Mega Man V are the best portable games. Mega Man II and III took a lot more from the level designs in their NES counterparts so it made them a lot less original. Not to mention the atrocious music in Mega Man II.....

I agree. Plus restore points. So I'll definitely get it eventually, but I it's not to priority right now.
