Wow, that's a lot of good stuff! I'll only be getting Proto Man, but that Special Stage and Endless Attack look very apealing.

Who's honestly going to beat Superhero mode? It sounds scary enough, and I HAVEN'T GOT THE FREAKING GAME YET.
All this MM9 talk is making me angry about release dates. I'll see you Friday, when I can join in better :D

Okay, so the game and the content total up to 1800 points. I'm not too interested in half of that content but at least we know there will be DLC for us. I imagine there will be more in the future

I'm especially looking forward to the extra difficulties.

It's like MM2, but with a third as well. XD

@Dazza - those achievements and many more are present in the Wii version too... you just obviously don't get anything by achieving them aside from smug satisfaction! :p

Endless and Proto for me first, then Special Stage because it arrives the day after my birthday, yay!

Endless mode sounds awesome. This game is kicking my trash though, here's hoping I can beat it before the DLC arrives. Can we all encourage our friends to buy this game and send a message to Capcom, and hopefully Nintendo, that this kind of re-make is fantastic and appreciated. If this thing sells really well then maybe Nintendo will get around to making a classic Mario or Zelda; and then I could die happy.

Who wants to type up the challenges list for MM9 and get full credit on WWW for doing so? There are 50 of them so it will be a "challenge" to do it! :D

I'll get you started:

01 Waltz - Clear the game in 120 minutes or less

If you can email us the remaining 49 we'll be happy to publish them! :-p

@thewiirocks- Once again, good work, soldier! EDIT: Mmm...maybe not...
While I havent purchased any DLC yet, I'm glad to see it implemented and wouldnt mind seeing more for other games too. Its a nice optional way to put those extra points to use!

DazzaAdmin

#25

Dazza said:

@thewiirocks - Rejected, it's easy to type the challenge names without details. We were after the list of 50 challenges in full :-p

The first to email us with the complete list will get Mega Man 1 or 2 gifted to them on the Virtual Console (provided their Wii region is set to the USA). Who is man enough to take on this challenge?

thewiirocks

thewiirocks said:

In that case, you'll have to wait a bit. Or someone will beat me to it. One of those two! :P

You should have at least some of them in that list, though. Good if you end up doing a patchwork quilt. :)

Just one thing I wanted to make clear Dazza, I think that you are not able to change your continental Region anymore in the WIi settings, last time I tried all I got was European states.

Hmmm...I'm ok with DLC when the game has been out for a while and has gotten stale but DLC so soon? That means it's probably done already and should have come with the game instead of being sold separately. Man, I love you Capcom, but the crazy things you do.....

DazzaAdmin

Dazza said:

Not yet, are you going to take on the challenge my eager friend? :-p

When were we ever able to change our Continental region, except for Australia?
AnyRegion Changer homebrew...you can change the shop country to well, anything ...though downloaded channels not form native regions will only work with a menu patch...

I'm not taking chances with anything Homebrew on the Wii, thanks for the info though.

Not to insult the winner here, but who the hell is WorryBomb? If you're a new member, welcome and CONGRATS! If not, still CONGRATS!

Thanks. It was like a "beat the clock" moment.

Apologies to x.SuperMario.x, hope it's cool.

@supermario
1st is worst, 2nd is best? Hey, good effort though. Only 3 people even tried as far as the threads show, so count yourself in that elite number!
@worrybomb Good job.
@Terranigma The prize is credit when the list is up as an article, methinks.

@ worrybomb- It's cool.
I just wish I had my email up, so I would've known to stop typing. lol
But I never win anything. I think I'll go cry now...

@x.SuperMario.x - Don't worry you can have a runner up prize of an NES game also :-p

The complete list will be up soon for all to see its magestic glory!

@Terranigma
I counted Laa, Supermario and Worrybomb. Did I forget someone?
And apparently the prize is they gift you either MM1 or MM2!! Wish I could have tried even though I don't have MM9 as a source...

Kewl. I think I'll DL everything except superhero mode. I'm a little scared of that one. :|

@Worrybomb. Nice work, comrade!

@x.supermario.x. Don't feel too bad. I never win anything either :P.

@ Mr. Cheez- It's okay.
The kind people at WWW have decided to reward me for my efforts. :)

Or they just felt really sorry for me. :P

Now this is how you do DLC! I'm really interested in Protoman with different abilities and stuff. And even harder settings are evil. Evilly awesome.

I shall be purchasing all of these! I just beat Galaxy Man and got the Eco whatever challenge... I'll take all the Mega Man 9 I can get!

@ Objection_Blaster-
I have Mega Man 2, so I'm wanting the original. No hurry though, because it'll take me quite some time to beat Mega Man 9. :P

AlexSays

AlexSays said:

My scale is going from easy (1) to hard (10).
Mega Man 2- 7/10
Mega Man 9- 8.5/10
It's a toughie. :P

Twilight_Crow

Twilight_Crow said:

@x.SuperMario.x
Yes, you've always been right about the MM2 difficulty, it ain't that hard, MM9, on the other hand, is, as others have mentioned, BRUTAL.

About the DLC, I'm won't buy the other difficulties, but I'm getting Protoman and the endless stage for sure.

AlexSays

#64

AlexSays said:

@ Objection_Blaster- For me, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 gets a 10.
I don't know why, but I can't beat that game to save my life.
Anyone who knows me, knows I hate that game. :P
Other than that, I don't have too many problems with most games. Soldier Blade is a toughie, but I really haven't dedicated enough time to the game to accurately judge it.

@ Twilight Crow- Thanks. :)
MM9 is giving me problems too. Everyone keeps saying Galaxy Man is easy, but I can't beat that level either! :P
And yeah, the only DLC I'll be getting right away is Protoman and the endless stage.

mailanbr said:

Wow, so this is what it is for? And are we sure that this is to be next month? I can wait that long, just that I would like to know a certain date when that would come out.

Hm, and I also realized this will give me something to do with those useless 400 points _'

CanisWolfred

CanisWolfred said:

@x.SuperMario.x

Oh yeah, Sonic 3! G-D that one is hard! I can't make it past Zone 3, even with Tails!

Also, Galaxy Man's stage is easy compared to the rest of the game, but that doesn't mean it's easy, it's still a considerable challenge, as you are well aware. I managed to beat him, but only because he's the type of boss I tend to do good against( hit one-twice then run away).

Edit: Okay, the rest of the game is much, much harder than Gravity Man's Stage!

Ihad to use an E tank to beat tornadoe man. Well i cant get that coffee achievment, but atleast i can get the kill all bosses with mega buster one.

dark_moogle said:

....so wait, they are making people pay more just to play harder difficulty levels!?

No Capcom, just no. Am I the only one here who is not being blinded by the fact that this is Megaman 9? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here

#74

said:

The DLC looks cool. As much as I don't like paying another $8, it's worth it and I can't wait. :)

AlexSays

#75

AlexSays said:

@ dark moogle- The game is hard enough without the extra difficulty.
So why include that in the game, when few people will ever use it?
Instead, they made it DLC, make a few more bucks, and spend that on Mega Man 10. :p
Besides, gaming is expensive. If I worried about every little dollar I spent, I wouldn't have enjoyed half the games I have today.

Jockolantern said:

Bring on the enhanced difficulty modes. Once I've got the game down as is (as has always been the case with other Mega Man games: Fail, fail fail, fail fail... ooooo! got it, domination), I'll welcome the added challenge of two further difficulty modes. Not to mention those two extra stages! Both of them sound fantastic! Bring on the goodness!

Bass_X0

Bass_X0 said:

People complain about downloadable content but I prefer to look at it a different way. 1800 points is the full price of the full game. now obviously this would put some people off buying it and besides, a lot of people just aren't interested in the challenges. So Capcom offer a basic "econonomy" package which just includes the bare game and if parts of the full game appeal to you then you're welcome to have those too for a small price.

dark_moogle

#78

dark_moogle said:

x.SuperMario.x - The point is the devs are charging additional money for something that is supposed to be included as an ingame extra. Just because I suck at old school games and played through Megaman 2 on normal mode instead of hard doesn't mean that other people don't want a challenge.

Call me an extremist but it wont be long now before the good people who called out EA for trying to charge real world $$$ for guns in Battlefield Bad Company are drowned out by the Nintendrones who are cheering because they can pay $5 to play as Luigi in Super Mario Universe.

AlexSays

#79

AlexSays said:

@ Bass X0- Exactly.
Not to mention, we payed $50-$60 for a Mega Man game almost 20 years ago.
The fact that people are complaining over $15-$20 is completely laughable.

But I guess people will complain about anything. :P

Proto Man is must and the new special stage sounds really interesting too! And superhero mode? Holy crap, if the game is already so difficult... Good that Wiimotes have straps :D
