@MegaStoneSmash91: Yep thats where I am on the VC downloads. I really dont need them it would just be nice especially since I have never owned Megaman 5, 6, or 7 except for on the AC and I would like to see the difference between the originals and the AC version.. Heck that was the main reason I bought the AC was so I could play Megaman 6 at last . However since I do have them on the AC I can wait. ANd yes I agree Waveboy needs to hurry up and finish his backlog, play Megaman 5 and tell us what he thinks.
@StuffyStuff: I agree with ya no more shield weapons but than again would it be a Megaman game if there wasnt a shield weapon?

@Tasuki: That's a good method of doing things, in terms of more important downloads that is. And I know I've listed the differences between the AC and the original versions of the games in this thread at least once, but perhaps seeing them for yourself would be a better way of comparing them. There is one thing I noticed that I haven't mentioned yet, and that is the fact that, on the Anniversary Collection port of Mega Man 5 (might affect the other games too, not sure), the very bottom of the screen is cut off from view. Two very noticeable examples are the password screen, which contains a blue line on the bottom that is not visible on the AC, and a part in Gravity Man's stage that looks like a pitfall on the AC but actually is just a very low platform. It's not too big of an issue, but it's still annoying. In fact if I remember right, all the AC ports look kind of zoomed in. The sprites and everything look bigger on the screen than they do on the original versions of the games. That could explain the cut off section on the bottom.
Also, in the classic series, there is no shield weapon in Mega Man 3, 8, or Mega Man & Bass. Fire Storm in the first game could be considered one depending on who you ask. While it does produce fireballs that surround Mega Man when he fires the weapon, they only last about one or two seconds, so I would not call it a shield weapon. It's a projectile weapon more than anything else, which is what it is intended to be. Anyway, the shield-type weapon is somewhat of a staple in the series, despite not being included in all games. As long as it functions like the Jewel Satellite or Water Shield I'm fine with it, but I don't want to see another Plant or Skull Barrier or even Star Crash. Those three just weren't very useful and were mediocre shield weapons.

That's what I mean about the shield weapons. I found the Water Shield useful and kinda fun to use, but the only thing the shield weapons are generally good for are defeating bosses. Maybe if they had a homing shield like when you get the three red shells in Mario Kart, that may provide a little entertainment.
I haven't played through 10 in a few months, but one thing that comes to mind is in Commando Man's stage, at the halfway point of the stage, one of those little mines that are in the sand has two big screws hidden in it. I never land on the mines so had I not came across it in a video, I would have never thought to look under the mine considering in those pits are crab people. There are a couple others but I'm having trouble remembering.

@StuffyStuff: I see what you mean now, but I don't recall there being very many hidden items like that. Most of them, like E-Tanks and 1-ups, are sitting out in the open but in a hard to reach location. I wouldn't call them hidden, though, just difficult to reach. If you remember any more examples don't forget to mention them.
And as long as the shield weapon is functional, I enjoy using it. The Skull and Plant Barriers as well as Star Crash disappear when you touch one enemy, even a weak one. With Jewel Satellite, Junk Shield, and Water Shield, you can plow through multiple enemies while the shield destroys them for you. That's the mark of a truly useful shield weapon. It has to be willing to withstand more than one blow. Skull, Plant,and Star failed while Jewel, Junk, and Water got it right, which is why it's actually enjoyable to use the latter three.

Aw, I like Star Crash. It's probably just because of how awesome it looks though.
I don't know if anyone here is aware of this, but I'm currently doing a series of Mega Man no damage runs on youtube. 9 episodes up so far, with a bunch more coming, so if anyone wants to see me kick robot butt (and get my butt kicked in return) it's here:http://www.youtube.com/user/FelixDeckett

MegaStoneSmash91 You seem to show up very rarely these days, I'm guessing you've turned to the official Mega Man Capcom Boards am I right?
Anyways, I'm going to play Mega Man 5 as soon as I'm done with Zelda: Links Awakening DX, which i might be starting tonight.I'm being optomistic about this one regardless of of it being bland along with the points you've made which sound completely accurate based on the looks of things. lol
I'll be hitting up Gyro, then Napahlm and Wave man's stages first.....I just love my organic themed stages, I can't get enough of them!. Even though Wave man's stage doesn't exactly take place in the water.

@Chicken_Brutus: I will check those out when I get a moment. Are you as entertaining as RoahmMythril?
@MegaStoneSmash91: I never noticed that size thing that you mentioned of course its been years since I have played the original NES games since I dont have a NES. Oh and one more thing while you didnt get a shield weapon in MM3 it did make an appearance when the Doc Robot took on the Woodman form.

I finally beat Mega Man 2 (PS2 anniversary collection) on "difficult" yesterday! At this rate I will be 90 by the time I finish all 6 Nes games haha... I am so late ot the party I know but it feels good nontheless I just ordered Mega Man 3 on ebay for my NES so I will be playing that the way it was meant to be played instead of with a Dual Shock which, I feel works as a decent temporary substitute for the NES controller.

@Ryno: At least you dont have the button switcharoo on the PS like you do on the Gamecube version of the Anniversary Collection. Congrats on beating Megaman 2. Alot of people consider Megaman 2 the cream of the crop when it comes to Megaman games. Once you play the rest of the Megaman games I will be interested to here what you think of all of them. And dont worry the other Megaman games just have one difficulty setting so you wont have to play them twice.

Dude you will love megaman 3, it's really good and only adds more content to an already great game its prequels were.

@Tasuki I heard that about the Gamecube button difference which made my decision to get the PS2 version easier. Where would you rank Mega Man 2 difficulty wise compared to the others? Also, am I ever going to have use a Bubble Lead like weapon for the end boss again? I love Mega Man 2 except for a couple things; the random "unavoidable" bouncing bullets from the 2nd Dr. Wily's ship and the fact the final boss was a projection!
@OmegaM Yeah, I am excited for Mega Man 3. It is the game I remember most fondly as a kid. I sent my mom all over town looking to rent it when it came out. I never beat it back then though.

I grew up playing megaman X, Megaman 7 and Megaman & Bass for the SNES , and M&B became my favourite of all time, but for the NES classics, 2 & 3 are tied up, followed by 4 because I'm a sucker for the charge shotXD

@Ryno: Truthfully I wouldnt really say one Megaman is hard than the others. I have beat all of them except for Megaman 8, the bad music and voice acting for MM8 pretty much ruined that game for me. I have tried several times to get into it but I just couldnt.
Anyway back on subject here, for me anyway they are all pretty easy it just knowing what order to take on the bosses and what weapon to use where. Now if we are talking length of games I would say Megaman 2 is the shortest since there is just the 8 robot masters and the one castle. Now Megaman on the other hand is a bit shorter but there are some tricky parts in the game like the lifts in Gutsmans stage and the Flying platforms in Icemans stage.... oh how I hate those things, which can make the game seem longer especially after dieing on those darn platforms over and over and over again.
Check out this video and you know what I am talking about.
Other than little stuff like that the games arent to hard at least to me.
614. Posted: Mon 27th Jun 2011 23:29 BST
@Tasuki Yeah, I beat Mega Man before I played Mega Man 2. I wanted to play those first 2 before I played the later versions because they didn't have the slide or charge shot mechanics. Gutsman's music will always be engrained into my mind for as many times as I tried getting past the lifts. haha
That is you making those split-second jumps against Ice Man in the video right?
615. Posted: Mon 27th Jun 2011 23:40 BST
@Ryno: Lol I wish. No they are done by a guy named RoahmMythril. He has a Youtube channel and one of his series are called Megaman Perfect Runs. If you have never seen them before I suggest you watch them they can be quite hilarious. Of course if you have never played the Megaman games than you might want to hold off till you play them cause they might have some spoilers in them.
