EU VC Releases - 14th December - Mega Man 2
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
After already releasing Pokemon Snap earlier in the week, some people wondered whether Nintendo would release games at the normal time as well. Thankfully they did - And they included one of the greatest NES games in the update as well! Mega Man 2 is usually called the best classic Mega Man series game ever made (With heavy competition from Mega Man 3 - Which I personally find better). It's the only Mega Man game with an easier mode (Making it perfect for series newcomers), it's got an absolutely amazing soundtrack for the time, it's slightly less linear, and it's just plain fun! If you've never played it, do yourself a favour and do so now!
Second and last today is the fun Neo Geo game, Top Hunter. The main idea is the same as Metal Slug - Get to the end of stages defeating a load of soldiers and other enemies. This game does some things a bit different though - There's two paths to walk on (One in the front and one in the back) which you can hop between at certain points. Instead of firing guns (Though there are guns) you beat enemies up with your strange, stretching fists and pick up and throw them. If you're keen on a game similar to Metal Slug you shouldn't go wrong here.
Two more games, despite getting a Nintendo 64 game earlier in the week! Check out the reviews:
