okay - I just beat Megaman X1 on Switch without Rookie mode and at the end there is the Capcom screen "Thanks for playing" - from that screen I cannot get back to the title screen so I exited the game via the minus button. Unfortunately I didn't get the medal "Beat Mega Man X1" even thoug I have the Special 1 Filter screen which I got for beating the first game. Does anybody else have this problem?

okay found out that I had to wait a bit longer on that screen which I did not - so I have to do all the Sigma levels again - don't know if I am going to do that - so be aware to wait for Sigma to appear after the Capcom message.

So I am going to be downloading the Mega Man 11 demo today and give it a shot. I heard that some of Mega Man's movents feel a bit off compared to classic games like that his jumping and climbing feels a bit stiff. Anyone else experience this?

In all the 8-bit games (including 9 and 10) except maybe Mega Man 1, Mega Man goes full speed right away. There's a tiny bit of delay on the animation in 11, which doesn't sound that bad until you consider the fact that Mega Man often is about turning back and forth in a split second. Hopefully they'll change this for the release.

So did a playthrough of the demo tonight and before I give my impressions let me just say that I have been a huge fan of Mega Man since the NES days. I remember my best friend back in the summer of 1991 going to visit his grandparents in Texas for a few weeks. I remember him writing me saying that his grandparents rented him a Nintendo from a local video store with some games, one of the games he rented was Mega Man 2. Before that point I never heard of Mega Man so I didn't know what to think. When he came back he clearly explained how much he liked it and we tried to rent it from our local video store but they didn't have it, instead they had Mega Man 3. Needless to say we got it and I was introduced to Mega Man that day. I have played and beat almost every game of the Classic series so I know my Mega Man so when they announced Mega Man 11 my younger self jumped for joy so after playing the demo here's my thoughts

First of the graphics are nice for a current gen take on classic Mega Man. Yes I prefer the sprite graphics but being that they wanted a Mega Man for the current gen so that being said the graphics suit the game very well and give that classic Mega Man feel. The controls however felt a bit stiff for being a Mega Man game especially when climbing a ladder. I don't know if this will be improved upon the get release or what but Mega Man just didn't feel as fluid as the past games.

The level design was a bit disappointing. Now I don't know if every level is going to be like this in length Block Man's felt too long and went on much too long. While the rooms and traps did suit the boss I just felt that it didn't need to be that long. In fact most of my deaths came from getting bored of the level. Other then that I liked it. The boss battle was good too. I never felt that he was a cheap boss.

As far as music went it was average but then again that could just be that level. Even with the original NES games was every levels music great so maybe that's the case here.

And my biggest gripe with this game so far the Double Gear system. Well let me say while it's an interesting system and I can see it helping newer players to the game, veteran players shouldn't be forced to use it. Then again every new thing introduced in a Mega Man game they darn well make sure you use it. They did that with Rush in Mega Man 3, and the Mega Buster in Mega Man 4 like, so it's no surprise that they do it with the Double Gear system. Quite honestly I.couldnt see how I could get pass some points in the stage withough using it.and In shouldn't be forced to use it.

Over all I am impressed with it, minus a few niggles. It's classic Mega Man returning for a new gen. It's definitely a better game then Mighty Number 9 and I am looking forward to this game.

just received my Mega Man 2 Legacy Cartridge Collection Edition by iam8bit - which looks absolutely fantastic (even though I got the light blue version and not the rare dark blue glowing in the dark version).

What sucks it, that I had to pay import sales tax of 47€ for a game that costs 100$ plus 34$ shipping costs (to Germany). Which is approximately 114€. I don't really get why the import sales tax is so high, so I contacted DHL Express and gonna see what they have to say about it.
