Well, it looks like the Atari 2600 won't be the last Retro console that I'll be shredder-scoring off of eBay after all...I have to have that Magnavox Odyssey at once! :p

And Nice buy RyChocula MM5 is probably one of the best pick up and play Mega Man games in the franchise, but that's most likely due to it's luke warm middle ground easy breezy difficulty. Does anybody else remember that Nintendo power issue with the Mega Man fan-made Art contest including the review of MMV? Hilarious how 4 of those kids idea's came to be in future Mega Man releases. :p Clown, Frost, Blade, and Magic man seem to ring an 'obvious' bell.

I always used to think Starman was such a bad a** and the music playing during his stage is possibly the most memorable and standout track in the And Speaking of Star man...

Starman's Bio:
"Star Man is a Robot Master created by Doctor Albert Wily for space combat. He is a romanticist that enjoys watching opera and musicals. He dreams of traveling deep into the space with a lover" :p

But yup! I can't wait to see his inevitable appearance in the new Mega Man comic book series hehe...I'm not a big comic book fan, but the new MM comic book series is all sorts of Awesome-amazing. :D Anyways, didn't you mention that you've beaten both 3 & 4? Ya, MM5 will be a total Ice cream-cake walk in comparison. Just sit back, and enjoy the relaxing & soothing mellow chip tunes while you make quick work of Wily's easiest set of Robot masters yet! :p

@Waveboy: HAHA yep I totally remember that contest I must have sent in five myself lol.

And its time for yet another retro purchase brought to you by my local Goodwill. Got a Gamecube with the GBA Player attached for 10 dollars. Not sure how much the GB player goes for but I figured 10 bucks wasnt that bad of a deal. I didnt need the Gamecube since I still have mine and the one I got was all covered in funky Pokemon, Yughio, and someother kiddie anime stickers so I just might send the GC back to Goodwill without the player. B-) SO now I can play my GBA games on the big screen.

Did it include the boot disc? The GB Player without the boot disc is worth about $10. Maybe another $10 for a used disc.
Or in NA, you might still be able to order a new disc from Nintendo for about $15.

A Brilliant idea that not even the poor Saps at Capcom could even dream of. :p
I'd personally love to see a Turantula Man, Shark man, or Rainbow man(ya i know both are in a fan made Mega Man Nes sequal but it's fan made and nothing more) Maybe something inspired by Shade man's Halloween based stage in MM7. Give us Ghost man capcom!

Wasn't Shark Man in one of the two DOS games? (unless that's the one you were referring to, though that's not a fan-made game, but commercially-released game licensed by Capcom)
Also non-canon Wave Man and Blade Man.
Oh, looks like Oil Man is also another boss that was reborn as an official boss.
So that's three of the six bosses in that unofficial game that got reused in official games. :D

Looks like Shark man is definitly legit! The two Mega Man DOS games look awful. They make Dr. Wily's Revenge look like a mega masterpiece(actually i enjoyed it quite a bit! even if it didn't perfectly recapture it's MM1 console brother in terms of gameplay/control.

Blade man was originally in this DOS MM game as well, and he got the remake treatment in MM10 so thre's still hope if Capcom ever decides to finally dip back into the classic franchise and give us MM11. And i completely forgot about Oil man who made his apperance in MM Powered Up. Him along with Time man(was it?) were original supposed to be in MM1 for the NES but got scrapped due to size limitations based on what i heard. How was 'Powered up' btw? I guess I'll never know considering i have absolutely NO desire to even get a PSP....what a scary thought. :p

I've kind of wondered why 5 seems to be the most expensive (at least cart-only), more than 1 and 6.
I'm going to guess 1 is the most expensive CIB?

I too have wondered why MM 5 rivals the original in price, more closely cart only. 5 CIB goes for around $80-90 while the original usually goes for $120+ I would say.

Also, a CIB (former rental) Kendo Rage for SNES.

hey i got kendo rage too, nice to see someone else knows about it

What are your thoughts on Kendo Rage? Worth picking up?

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I don't know if you are quite ready for the Odyssey. You must work your way up to it first by proving your worth with the 2600! B-)

I have only completed MM 1-3. Haven't started 4 yet. Someday! I should look for that Robot Masters contest in my old Nintendo Power as I don't remember it. Dial Man should definitely be used in MM11! :P

i like how the game looks and the quirky direction they took with it. im glad theres a level select code to come back to later on because ive heard its a tough one. plus its an obscure one, so that makes it even better for me. any games like the valis series gets bought. i also liked el viento for genesis. did you ever check out shatterhand?

Thanks for the recommendations. I will look out for the Valis games along with Kendo Rage and El Viento. I really want Run Saber though!

I recently did get a copy of ShatterHand. Hope to try it out and dish out some knuckle sandwiches soon!
