Some tough challenges then. Oh well, when it comes to Europe, i'll be waiting to take them all on



CanisWolfred said:

42-49 don't sound too hard, if you have the right weapon. Everything else is probably going to lead to more than a few broken controllers.



Dazza said:

My favourite is:

41 Marathon Fight - Fight a boss for 10 minutes.

I mean, seriously!!



Drizzt said:

Fight a boss for 10 minutes? That's epic. Survival mode really .

19 Gamer's Day - Clear the game 5 times in 1 day.

Some of these challenges are both amusing and challenging!



Ark said:

09 Mr. Perfect - Clear the game without getting damaged.

Dear Capcom,


I now know I'm not gonna bother doing these.



DaVeMaN99 said:

Well for 19 cant you play the game once everyday for 5 days, but just go to wii calender and change the date to the same one everytime?
I wont do it because it sucks the fun out of it, but i still probably wont get it.



darkmagi_82 said:

Yay achievements, this will make me want to play the game even longer.
My favorite is: 19 Gamer's Day: Clear the game 5 times in 1 day.



tantrumario said:

i got eco fighter and conqueror.They were easy to get. So was beating galaxy man. #41 just run around ALOT.



Mario64DStyle said:

Some of these sound really hard >_>

Its nice to have goals set for myself when playing a game though =P
Although I'm sure I won't pass many of them..

To be honest.. I havn't downloaded this game yet.. My wii is still sitting in my sports bag cause I came home from my dads house last night haha... I'll get it later..
(*Expects a 9*)



Final_Starman said:

Wow, these are such a waste of time. I wouldn't bother with these even if I was seriously bored or if I'd get a 75% discount on every video game I would buy for the rest of my life! Wait, beat the 8 bosses without your helmet? What's that supposed to mean? Is it like Mario's cap in Super Mario 64?



DaVeMaN99 said:

No i think theres a extra option to be megaman without your helmet.
And its not like their forcing you to do these challenges, there just for fun and to make the game last longer



tantrumario said:

I only beat Galaxy man cause i only played for 20 minutes. I wonder if WWW will make a buddy list kind of thing. I tried Magma mans stage and the dragon is hard.



Iggy said:

sweet i cant wait to get this game looks like its going to be tough as nails to fully complete the game.



Phantom5800 said:

Holy ****! That is some really hard crap to do ... damn it where are my Wii points for this game



Objection said:

By my calculations about 40% of these are hellishly impossible And none of them seem easy. Everyone post the ones you've obtained, ja?
EDIT: Also, with this article 4 out of 10 articles on the front page is about MM9! Domination...



megacody said:

Man, I spent my $20 on Bad Fur Day while i waited for this game. I probably do everything except mr. perfect.



Naturestee said:

Sweet. That really encourages people to play it a ton, instead of playing it once and leaving it alone like a lot of other games. Not like I'll be able to get any because I'm horrible at Mega Man games, but I think it's cool that the challenges/achievements/whatever are there. Most of those are ones worth bragging about!



Corbs said:

If I make it through the game once I'll consider myself lucky. Sheesh!



Mario64DStyle said:

Just downloaded it X-)
Playing concrete man's stage.. this game is insane >_>

EDIT: Is it sad that I have fallen down that first hole thrice in a row now?

Also, who else here is excited for the Heroes season 3 to start?!?!



DaVeMaN99 said:

No, i did too. That random thing just pops up and kills me.
I always forget about it too.
I still only beat galaxy man though : (.
Magma man is so annoying though, he just jumps around and shoots a 3 shot spread.



Clayfrd said:

This game is great. I only have Eco Fighter so far because I've only played it a bit. I'll make it a goal to get 50% of these, and then see where I can go from there... I'll have to determine the Robot Masters' weaknesses so I can do the "down in 10 seconds" thing. Hmm. I could probably fight Galaxy Man for 10 minutes. Crap... I just beat him.



Ferret75 said:

I got about 5 of them right now.
(I got the one you need one life left for by accident. XD)



tantrumario said:

i actually got an interesting one speed metal in tornadoe mans stage(even though i technically should've got hard rock).



Twilight_Crow said:

At this moment I have beaten Galaxy man and Concrete man, and I got the conqueror, vanquisher and eco fighter challenges.
I'm not going to finish all those challenges but there are a few it might be fun to try.



whalleywhat said:

I've only beat Galaxy Man and Splash Woman so far, I doubt I'll be getting many of these any time soon. Still, it's cool that they're there, something to work towards.

p.s. the DLC should've been unlockable for beating these instead of having to pay for it.



mailanbr said:

I know. I have only beaten ONE of these challenges so far. And that killing 100 enemies. And once the achievment was unlocked, I swear, it was so much like XBox. But nonetheless, this game is sweet and was definitely worth those 1000 points. Not like the other WiiWare games where I only play it for awhile.



CanisWolfred said:

I only got the "Conqueror" and "Eco Fighter". Those are basically the booby prizes of the game, I still got a ways to go for the real prizes.



DDR_Paladin356 said:

cries Some of these are CRAZY!

I've only beaten Magma Man. I dont know who I should go after now though. I found an easy way to beat him by his pattern. Cant seem to do the same with the others.

This is my first Mega Man game since 8...but I guess many people dont think its that good...8 that is.



Objection said:

More wii(ware) games should have achievements!
I love how my Valve games on my PC do! (TF2 and Portal)



stowrag said:

3 cheers for capcom for not skimping out on achievments for the wii release. and another three for adding downloadable content when other companies wouldn't (rock band). and another three for the idea of making a new nes game to begin with. as a single console owner, i'm very happy right now. It almost makes up for discontinuing megaman powered up/maverick hunter/legends.



worrybomb said:

Well looks like I have some achievements to achieve right away.

In other related news, Mega Man 9 is the most popular rated WiiWare game. Congratulations to all for supporting the Blue Bomber =)



samus2008 said:

so far, ive only beaten galaxy mans stage, and ive gotten acheivements 24,25, and 40



Corbs said:

Number 1 with a bullet! I figured it would shoot to the top pretty fast. It's too recognizable not to.



I have a lot of achievements, over 50%. I also got Gamer's Day. ^_^

I found a good stage for the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal challenges. It's not hard. Just think a little and you'll find one of the stages is great for both. Just... don't try to do them at once, unless you're really stupid hardcore like that. X_X

Challenge 9 is indisputably the hardest one. Coincidence?



Objection said:

@stowrag-Sorry but nothing makes up for Megaman Legends being discontinued. On a related note, THAT is an awesome wiiware title idea. Megaman Legends 3 for Wiiware (1500 pts)!! Then they could also release 1 on the VC! (2 was a PsOne title unforcunately)



Wiiloveit said:

(Cries in corner due to feeling left out...)

Oh, and (dare I say it:) another noticable avatar change: SuperMario64DStyle. Conspiracy.....



MarkyVigoroth said:

Gamer's Day is my least favourite; it looks impossible!

By the way, WiiloveitOnline-san, I also did not get Rockman 9.



mailanbr said:

Wow, Megaman 9 got in #1 in what? 2 days? Man, this game is so good, but at many times, it pisses me off. I am surprised. I was just messing around on GalaxyMan's stage, and found out that I was able to do the Speedster Challenge. That one where you always have to be moving. Hm, and to tell you the truth, I did stop once or twice and here and there, but still got it. These challenges will make many people pissed, but man, it just gives so much replay values. All Wii games should do this. The only other one I know is Metroid Prime 3.



Serpent said:

who ever can complete all those challenges has no life XD.
Some of those just seem impossible....the game is already hard enough.



Clayfrd said:

@PuppetMasterKuruku - I just got Hard Rock (don't get damaged) and I found that hints enclosed*Tornado Man's stage was easy to avoid damage on (especially the second time), and I'm going out on a limb and saying Splash Woman's is easiest to avoid shooting anything on, but I haven't gotten that achievement yet. *end hints I'm still loving the game!



^ Well, as long as you're giving hints, I'll tell you I did Tornado Man for both, it's the easiest stage bar none, if you ask me.

I only have 14 challenges left as of this post. I just finished Bust a Move.

...and I'm still terribly addicted to this game, and the DLC isn't even out yet. As a gamer, it's the most fun I've had playing a video game in a very long time.

EDIT: Make that 10. ^_^



Borris said:

It's impossible to beat the game without earning Eco-Fighter, unless you choose to beat your first boss with the Rush Coil for some strange reason. Impossible not to get Whomp Wily! either. And many others are really easy.

For my part, I just got my 34th challenge with Peacekeeper. That one's crazy. It really forces you to rethink the way you can get past a lot of the game's enemies.
