For Nintendo, the past few years, we’ve gotten: Mega Man Battle Network, MMBN2, MMBN3 White & Blue, MMBN4 Red Sun & Blue Moon, MMBN5 soon, MMNTranmission, MMZero 1, 2, and 3, 2 MMAnniversary Collections, and MMX Command Mission.
Sorta implies that Nintendo is THE place for Mega Man, right?
So what do they do? They put X7 ONLY on PS2.
So, assuming you’ve fallen in with Nintendo as a Mega Man fan, you’re ultimately told that you need to shell out another 200+ dollars to get that one game in a series that’s otherwise been ENTIRELY ON NINTENDO through this current generation.
But that’s sorta alright; at least we got Viewtiful Joe, a terrific game, exclusively on Nintendo. So at least there’s some balance, right? Well…
What’s next? They’re bringing X8 on PS2, and Viewtiful Joe 2 on GameCube. So things continue as they were, right?
Coming for PS2, they’re getting Viewtiful Joe 1 AND 2!
So what gives? Where is my fucking X7 port, Capcom? Where the hell is X8 for the GameCube? Why are you screwing us over like this?
I don’t care what others think, for the most part, I like what I’ve played of X7 on EB Games’ demo unit and at a friend’s house when visiting down in NC. I want to own it for myself. And I don’t think I should have EVERY other Mega Man game currently available on my system save for two.
It’s not like I’m asking for special treatment. I don’t need bonuses(tho after this crap, it’d be a nice olive branch) or anything fancy. Just give me a straight port so I don’t have to buy another system to play them, and I’ll be happy.
Of course, I doubt that’ll happen. Fortunately for me, there are a small handful of games on PS2 I’d like to play anyway, foremost being TransFormers and DBZ Budokai 2(which will probably do as its predecessor did and go Cube eventually, anyway). Maybe Kingdom Hearts.
Nonetheless, it still disappoints me. I hate exclusives. Unless it’s something understandable, like Mario. But as it stands, I can probably afford the games gradually when I start work again, but the system, probably not…
