My top 5 favorite female fighting game characters

By: blazemanx Jul 3, 2011 | 6 Comments

My top 5 female fighters they are beautiful, sexy and powerful.

Fighting games have always been dominated by big strong men. In most fighting games females only make up 10 to 20 percent of the roster. Me personally i love women who can kick some ass and even though female fighters are out numbered like 5 to 1 i still prefer the minority. I have here my 5 favorite female fighters there beautiful they kick ass and to me they outshine most men. So without further delay here are my top 5.

Jam Kuradoberi

For those of you who don't know jam is from the guilty gear series. She is hot (obviously) and she is one of the most badass kung fu style characters regardless of gender. She pulls off the whole fighting waitress thing perfectly and she is my overall favorite character in the guilty gears series. She also has a very unique look....just look at that hair. She made her debut in guilty gear X and has been a staple in the series since. If you don't know much about her or guilty gear i suggest you look them up you won't be disappointed.

King

King is originally from the snk fighter the art of fighting. She originally fought disguised as a man and it wasn't until the KOF series that she caught my attention. She is a muay thai fighter and the first female one i remember seeing. Just because she does muay thai don't think she fights like sagat or adon. Her move set is pretty unique and i love her for that. She is my favorite female snk character and i love her taunt " COME ON BABY"

Chun Li

The original female fighter miss chun li set a trend in the fighting game universe. She was one of the original 8 world warriors and she proved that a woman could hang with the big boys. To this day i believe chun li is the most popular female fighting game character of all time. She has a awesome fighting style and she has become one of the faces of the franchise. She is sexy and tough and can kick you ass what more do you want.

Cammy

Cammy is one deadly piece of woman. I remember her when super street fighter 2 came out she was my favorite of the 4 new challengers. She is the second female fighter in the street fighter universe and is a good one. She is from england and was formerly under bisons psycho power control. She is almost as popular as chun li in my opinion. She has a really interesting fighting style that draws players to her. She is also one of the hottest females around no doubt about it.

Crimson Viper

As if you didn't already know, viper is my all time favorite female fighter. Viper first made her debut in street fighter 4 and in my opinion she is the most popular out of all the new comers in the street fighter 4 universe. Going into SF4 i didn't think she would become one of my favorites. In all honesty she wasn't even a favorite of mine until SSF4 was almost out. She has a truly unique style and is one of the hardest to characters to master but that just makes her that much more appealing. She may have not been out very long but she is already #1 in my heart and i look forward to seeing her in more games. Sexy has a new name and that name is crimson viper.

These women show that you can kick ass and be sexy while doing it. What are some of your favorite female fighters? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Akuma - The man, The myth, The legend

By: blazemanx Jun 19, 2011 | 5 Comments

a look into the man we call akuma/gouki.

Akuma is one of the most feared fighters in all of gaming and with good reason. I still remember seeing him for the first time on the 3DO (remember that system?) dashing in out of the darkness to kill bison and challange you to fight. Ever since then akuma has been quite possibly the most deadly warrior in all of fighting game history and here is a look into the man, the myth, the legend.

Akuma (known Gouki in Japan) trained under Goutetsu along with his brother, Gouken. Goutetsu taught them Ansatsuken (Assassin Fist), which is a mixture of karate, judo, and koppo. As the brothers progressed under Goutetsu's teachings, a dispute arose on the true nature of Ansatsuken and the path to master it. Gouken, unable to accept the violent nature of Ansatsuken, left Goutetsu to begin his own dojo. Akuma continued Goutetsu's teachings and vowed to use Ansatsuken as it was intended.

In order to learn Shun Goku Satsu, Akuma embraced the principle of Satsui no Hadou or (The Surge of the Intent to Murder/Murderous Intent). Through Satsui no Hadou, Akuma was forced to give up any compassion he held towards other human beings. In addition, Akuma realized his limits as a martial artist could be expanded, and left Goutetsu's guidance to train alone on an island (Gokuento).  

His return marked the end for Goutetsu... Akuma demonstrated his strength by killing his former master with Shun Goku Satsu. Goutetsu fell with an inner joy, realizing his pupil was attempting to master Ansatsuken. Akuma removed the beaded necklace from Goutetsu's neck and placed it around his own. The following day Akuma challenged and fought his brother. With Gouken gaining the upper hand, Akuma was eventually struck down. Akuma requested death in defeat, however his brother was unable to kill his own kin. Akuma, sensing weakness, mocked Gouken and struck with Shun Goku Satsu. The dojo was filled with a burst of white light and Gouken was killed. Ken saw the flash as he was returning from the U.S. Martial Arts tournament. Rushing to the dojo to find it in shambles and his master dead, an enraged Ken ran into the surrounding woods searching for the killer. Akuma easily defeated Ken and disappeared. Gouken's other student Ryu soon learned of his master's death and began to search for Akuma.

Akuma first fought Ryu at his island, Gokuento, and discovered the potential within him. He destroyed the island and told Ryu to come back when he had embraced the killing intent. However, Ryu rejected it. Akuma now practices to be prepared for a battle with Ryu. He also killed Bison during the SF2 series, the only official result of that game.  

Akuma fights only to test his strength and his opponent's. This means that he will only fight opponents that will provide a challenge, hence his refusal to fight unworthy challengers under any circumstances. Akuma will only kill opponents who are as strong as he, which is why he stopped his fight with Gen after realizing that he was ill. While Akuma killed his brother and his teacher, he did so in the confines of the code of the warrior, where the field of battle does not distinguish between friend and foe. Akuma believes he committed no transgression whatsoever. Also, with the exception of Gouken and Goutetsu, Akuma usually only fights those who challenge him instead of picking fights.

"Akuma" means "Demon" in Japanese. The kanji on the back of his uniform is called "ten." It can mean "sky," "heaven," or "beyond human." Akuma also has a few alternate, more powerful incarnations of himself including: Shin Akuma, Cyber Akuma and Oni Akuma.

Akuma is one of the first Street Fighter characters to really say "evil," besides good old M. Bison of course. Akuma's moves are of course based off of Ken's & Ryu's, which makes sense considering the storyline. In the later of the series, the manner is which he performs his moves became more and more different from Ryu & Ken... cooler maybe? Heh heh. Well, if you didn't know, Akuma adds in a certain "badass factor" to pretty much anything he does. He is an all around badass karate dude, if not THE badass karate dude.

I loved Akuma's 2nd Impact/3rd Strike appearance & fighting style, but honestly his SF4 incarnation disappointed me a bit... he's a bit too "monstrous-looking" in that game and his super moves just don't have the same pop. I think Akuma has looked his best in 2D form. In any case, he's surely one of my all time favorite fighting game characters (and I know I'm not the only one). Finally, Akuma's appearance in MVC3 looks downright epic... potentially his best... incarnation... ever. 

Here is a little video I put together in tribute to akuma i hope you enjoy it.

So what do you think of Akuma? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Review: Final Fantasy XIII

By: blazemanx Jul 18, 2011 | 8 Comments

Final Fantasy XIII stands out from the pack!

I have been wondering for a while why there is such a mix of reviews for this game and I honestly believe that with Final Fantasy being a long established series, there are those that will get angry with any changes that may happen. So i took it upon myself to give this game a try. I am not a die hard FF fan but i have played a few including the critically acclaimed FF7. With that said this is one of if not THE best in the series and here is why. 

Story:

Ah yes, what jrpgs and this series is known for and this installment delivers on story. Without giving too much away, on Cocoon, a small floating planet in the sky, the main characters gain powers from a god-like beast called a F'alcie that happens to originate from the world below: Pulse. Years ago both Pulse and Cocoon were in a great war trying to destroy one another.

As the main characters powers stem from Pulse, the Cocoon government fears they will unleash their powers and destroy their home. People fear Pulse and for the greater good, the Cocoon government wants you dead.

What unfolds is a brilliant story that is very obvious was not thought of overnight. Enhancing the story is the "Datalog" which leads you read some back-story or get further information on current events.

Furthermore, all dialogue is voice acted. And yes they delivered. Each characters voice matches wonderfully with their characters and the acting is superb
(minus one villains voice actor in a scene figuring out what color code means what - Code red? no wait or is it code purple? What about blue?).

The story unfolds very much like a soap opera and an extremely entertaining and enthralling one at that. It is definitely geared more toward mature gamers, so those who have no emotions or are extremely childish or immature may not like it as much, but what has been written is truly amazing. The character development in this game is really good, rarely have i liked a cast this much Lighting and Sazh are just awesome.

 

 

Music & Sound:

The Final Fantasy series always shines here and this installment is no exception. The music whether it be field music or battle music is all superb. The only complaint I really had was the main theme on the title screen is used a LOT in the game. Many different renditions of it but I wish it wasn't repeated as much. However, each rendition is beautiful and fits the story at that point so its not a terrible thing.

The battle themes are great too. The main theme is fun and upbeat with some killer violin thrown in. Later on you get a few more battle songs as well depending on the location and they are all awesome. 

Graphics:

All I can say is WOW! The graphics are fantastic. The detail in everything is phenomenal right down to the character's locks of hair. It can be hard to tell when your watching a pre rendered scene or not. Each chapter has one basic look depending on the environment so the world around you can get boring at times, but it still looks great.

 

Gameplay:

Ok so the Linearity complaint. Sure it's linear to a certain point. However, It's still an amazing game.
The Linearity complaint is overused and is only valid if this game were boring and NEEDED more freedom. But the game flows so well that this really is a non-issue.

You will have great fun. The longer you play, the better it gets. And it starts out REALLY good. You don't need to get halfway through to enjoy it.

The way this game flows from battle, to scene, to cinematic cut-scenes all flow in such a way where you will not think to yourself "OMG THIS IS TOO LINEAR I WANT TO GO WHEREVER I WANT!"

You will just continue plowing through and getting more and more into the story and game.

Combat here is done superbly. Some say with auto-battle that the fun is ruined. To those who say this.....well don't use auto-battle!

 To all others....the battle system is addictive as hell even using auto-battle.

Let's look at Final Fantasy 7's battle system. You control your characters. Move the cursor up or down and hit X to select attack, magic, defend, or item. Once doing so you pick the skill you want or item.

Here you control your main character, move the cursor up or down for auto-battle, class skills to use, techniques, or items and hit X.

Oh wait....its the same......Except here you can use auto-battle which generally uses (but not always) the best attacks for an enemy if you have identified its weaknesses.

And one more thing.....you can (and must) change your classes during battle! By hitting L1, you can access up to six groups of three classes you select before battle. Each class has different skills so you must chose what classes you need at the right moment....or you are dead.

In actuality, this makes the battle system here more advanced than any previous Final Fantasy game. This is because you MUST think on your feat, and you benefit from having the right classes. So you actually have more options than Final Fantasy 7 or 8 .... or any other in the series.

The battle system here is addictive as hell and this is by far the most difficult Final Fantasy game there is. Although in later chapters you can grind and actually make the main game pretty easy, those that don't grind will see how much more difficult this is than any other in the main series.

And of course there are bosses harder than the final boss! Some secret hunts will have you ripping your hair out until you become beastly strong and most of these you can't kill until you beat the game and unlock level 10 of the crystarium.

Speaking of the crystarium.....think Sphere Grid from 10. Except you can't delete nodes. It's an alright system. Not the best but each character has their own specific skills and stats so there will be times that its best to have a certain character in your team.

 

 

Final Verdict: BUY IT!

It took me a little over 60 hours to complete this game. So in terms of length FF13 delivers and its a fun ride all the way through. As for post game features you can complete 64 missions which consist of defeating strong monsters and even some STRONG, HUGE, and HARD monsters. In my opinion this is one of the greatest Final Fantasy's out there. The battle system is the most fun of any that I have played. It is fast paced like most other games these days and keeps you on your toes. The music is beautiful and the graphics even more so. The strong characters and major character development also enriches this epic adventure.

Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.

My top 5 favorite RPG villains

By: blazemanx Jul 2, 2011 | 16 Comments

here are my top 5 favorite RPG villains.

As you all know im a RPG fanatic and i have played and beaten many many RPG games. In every RPG game there is a hero but you can't have a hero without a villain. Some villains are dull and don't really seem worth the the hero's time. Then there are those that stand out from the crowd in terms of evilness, look and personality. Trust me i have a big list of awesome villains that i like but i decided to only put down 5. It was hard to pick these 5 out of the bunch but i managed to do it. So without further delay here are my top 5 favorite RPG villains.

Yeager

Yeager is a villain from tales of vesperia and a pretty cool one to be honest. What really caught my attention with yeager was his german accent. He would add ya at the end of his sentences as if he was asking a question. You know what i mean just imagine it lol. In addition to his cool voice he was a BADASS fighter he was one of the hardest bosses in the game. Tales of vesperia has these secret missions where you complete a goal during boss fights and his secret mission was BY FAR the hardest. Another thing that adds to yeagers appeal is that further in the game after you have defeated him for good you learn more about him. You learn that he was not as evil as you thought he was, he had a little good in him too. I really would love to see yeager in another tales game but i guess that won't happen since he is killed in the game. I think there should be more villains with german accents it just adds a extra cool factor.

Dist the reaper

Dist is from tales of the abyss and is one of the six god generals. Dist is by far the most hilarious villain i have ever seen but in a good way. He is indeed evil but totally comical at the same time weather its intentional or not i have no idea. For starters he has one of if not the best evil psycho laughs ever. He calls others savages and thinks of him self as the most beautiful person alive. He even talks about how his name is beautiful, talk about conceited. He never actually fights he uses machines to do his dirty work and he is a mechanical genius but he just can't fight. He is old friends with one of the main party members and the dialog between the two is comedy gold. When you foil his plans he tells you how he will write it down in his revenge journal. I think there should be more villains like him he adds a frown as well as a smile to your face.

Lezard Valeth

Lezard is from valkyrie profile 1 and 2 he is a genius mage who seeks power beyond that of human kind. Although he was in both games the valkyrie profile 2 version of him is why i like him so much. He was actually a team mate for most of the game until his true motives was revealed and he ended being the final boss of the game. He outsmarts the party and other villains to become a god and create his own dimension so its safe to say that he is a total badass. He is voiced by the same voice actor who voices dist the reaper but trust me he sounds nothing like him. He has a badass deep voice and when he does magic and cast spells he sounds truly epic. There aren't many villains that can out smart gods and become a god him self, lezard truly is a villain to be reckoned with.

Luca Blight

Luca is from suikoden 2 and trust me he is one sick bastard. He is indeed one of the most evil villains you will ever come across in any game. While he was destroying a town he made a woman get on her hands and knees and bark like a dog if she wanted to live. She did what he said then with an evil grin he struck her down with his sword and laughed as if was nothing. He had no regard for human life he was truly a monster. Another thing that adds to him being a great villain is the actually battle with him in the game. It took THREE DIFFERENT TEAMS of SIX to slow him down but even then he was not finished. After you use 18 different characters to beat him he is hit by a barrage of arrows but with arrows sticking out of his body he was STILL not finished. You then had to face him one on one in a duel and that was no walk in the park. It took all that to defeat this man he was truly a hardcore villain and there should be more like him to really give the player a reason to hate one of the antagonist.

Duke

Duke is the main villain from tales of vesperia. Duke was an important figure in the great war in which humans and the Entelexeia (mystical creatures) fought. He fought alongside the Entelexeia Elucifer so that humans and the Entelexeia could live in peace. Although they were victorious, some humans no longer trusted the Entelexeia and executed Elucifer. After this betrayal, Duke lost all faith in humanity and cut all ties with them becoming somewhat of a recluse. He only appeared when he felt it was necessary for the protection of the world and the Entelexeia. Duke is one of those complex villains where he has good intentions but his method to achieve his goal is too extreme. He intended to trade all human life on earth in order to save it. He cared more about the earth it self than those who inhabit it. He survives the final battle and helps the heros save the earth their way. He was a guy you wanted to hate but couldn't i like complex villains like that.

There are many more villains that i have come to like and im sure some of you have too. So let us know some of your favorite villains and don't be a jimmy.

Top 5 characters I want in MVC3

By: blazemanx Jun 30, 2011 | 8 Comments

here is a list and some background info on the top 5 characters i want added to MVC3.

Recently seth killian was interviewed about many topics and one of them was MVC3. He implied that they have not abandoned the game and are indeed working on something. Most are 99.9% sure more characters are on the way its just a matter of time. Here are my top 5 characters i want added.

Strider Hiryu

Strider Hiryu is a ninja-style warrior who must defeat a legendary being known as Grandmaster Meio. Meio has observed Earth from his dwelling in a far off galaxy, and has created a space station (known as "The Third Moon"), between Earth and its original moon in order to rule earth and continue observation... The year is 2048.

Armed with a Cypher (a razor-sharp blade, wielded similarly to a tonfa which generates metal-cutting plasma) called Falchion, Hiryu must travel around the globe (including the Soviet Union and the Amazon Rainforest) to find and destroy the evil being. His original debut was in the original Capcom 2D side-scrolling game, Strider.

Strider was one of my mains in MVC2 i loved his speed and combo appeal. In a game like MVC3 he would be more of a combo machine than dante and i would expect to see him used by most pro players.

Gambit

Abandoned at birth due to his burning red eyes, the child who would one day become Remy LeBeau was kidnapped from his hospital ward by members of the New Orleans Thieves' Guild who referred to the child as "le diable blanc" - the white devil. They believed he was the child that had been prophesied to unite the warring Guilds. Soon after, Remy was placed in the care of a gang of street thieves who raised the child and taught him the ways of thievery.

Gambit is one slick badass he was always one of my favorite x-men. He is really popular in the previous VS games and would fit right in with the current MVC3 cast. I know a lot of people would love to see how awesome royal flush would look in the MVC3 engine. I could see him as a mix between rush down and zoning and used a lot.

Mia-Ling

Mai-Ling is a skilled martial artist from Gora. Recently she left her hometown and participated in a martial arts tournament in which she won first place. Overjoyed she returned home to tell her family, but her joy turned to horror when she found her home ablaze. As she stood in shock the harpy, Lavia, descended from the sky and took credit for the destruction. So begins her journey to discover what evil has befallen the world.
 

Mia-Ling is from the VERY little known capcom fighting game red earth. She is a pure melee fighter and i think she would be a fantastic addition to MVC3. She would fill a few voids like more female characters and the badass kung fu style character. I could see her being a pure rushdown character with lots of over heads and heavy hitting combos and hypers.

Cyclops

Scott Summers, better known as Cyclops, discovered his mutant ability to direct and control his powerful optic blast, a powerful energy beam emitting from his eyes, during his difficult childhood. Having lost his parents at an early age and raised in an orphanage, he was eventually found by Charles Xavier and became the first member of the original X-men. Cyclops is also the father of Cable and husband of Jean Grey.

Cyclops is my favorite x-man and he NEEDS to be in this game. It just doesn't feel right without him in my opinion he was part of the backbone of MVC2 but thats just me. I could see him being just like in MVC2 but with a new level 3 hyper.

Demitri Maximov

Ominous clouds of ill-omen obscure the castle. Pale moonlight shrines forth into Lord Maximov's inner chamber... he is awake! "The day of battle is soon to come..." muses the Romanian noble, "after a century of waiting, there are finally foes worth fighting!" With an evil grin, Demitri rises to his feet. After a hundred years of slumber. Demitri seeks to make "Prince of Darkness" the most feared name in the netherworld once again. 

Morrigan, who is a daughter of Aensland, succeeded to the position of ruler of the Makai (the world of devils), after the timely death of Berial. The night before the final battle to decide who will be the true ruler of the Makai, Demitri's eternal castle has once again been drawn to the evil dimension by mysterious supernatural powers. "Is this an act of Doma?" "I know not of what he is up to, but no chance exists for a loser of his sort." Regretfully putting aside the battle with Morrigan for the time being, Demitri slowly rises from his enchanted coffin to terminate the loser who poses as a ruler. "I will make him fully aware of his place... I am the sole entity that can rule the Makai

Demitri is my #1 overall pick to be in MVC3. He is my favorite darkstalker character but he never gets any love. Capcom puts him in japanese crossover games and thats all well and good for japanese fans BUT NOT FOR ME. Its always morrigan that is the main character to rep darkstalkers in high profile crossover games. I know i can't be the only one who wants him in. I think an appearance in MVC3 could be his most badass appearance to date. He would most likely be balance between zoning and mix up options. I hear one of the reasons he was not included was because his midnight bliss super would be a pain to animate. Well i say bullcrap they could just make one new 3D model for midnight bliss and use it for all characters instead of creating 3D models for nearly 40 characters.

Those are my top 5 hopefully at lease one of these characters make it. I would like to know who you guys would like to see added. Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Guile the true american hero

By: blazemanx Jul 4, 2011 | 7 Comments

a look at the history of a true american.

Guile is the ultimate american character. He has big muscles, crazy hair, is in the air force, loves his country and kicks a whole lot of ass. He may be the only character to have lasted over 20 years and only have two special moves lol. With his iconic sonic boom and flash kick he has secured his place in history and here is some background info on the true american hero GUILE!

Guile made his first appearance in Street Fighter 2 (1991) as one of the eight selectable characters featured in the first release of the game. A Major in the united states air force, he leaves his country and family to enter the World Warrior tournament to avenge the death of his friend charlie, who was killed by m.bison, the tournament's sponsor, sometime before the events of the game. In his ending, he defeats Bison, but is dissuaded from killing him by his wife Jane  and their daughter Amy. Guile spares Bison and returns home to be a family man.

Guile's war buddy Charlie would appear in the later prequel series street fighter alpha, although Guile himself did not appear in this sub-series until the console versions of street fighter alpha 3 (1998). Originally Guile was a hidden character in the initial PlayStation version of the game, though subsequent versions made him part of the initial roster. In his storyline in the game, Guile is an Air Force lieutenant ordered to track down Charlie, who has gone missing. Guile eventually fights Charlie, as well as Bison as his final opponent. In his ending, Guile infiltrates Bison's base with Charlie and sets explosives on the Psycho Drive, only for them to be caught in the act by Bison. Charlie holds off Bison while Guile escapes and the base explodes with Charlie still in it, resulting in his death.

Guile also appears as a playable character in Street Fighter EX (1997) and its two sequels, Street Fighter EX 2(1998) and Street Fighter EX3 (2000). The storyline of the EX series takes place at the same time as Street Fighter II. In addition to tracking down Shadaloo to avenge Charlie, Guile is also hunted by a mercenary named Doctrine Dark (another playable character in this sub-series), who is actually a former subordinate named Holger. His relationship with Ken as brothers-in-law (with their respective wives being sisters) is mentioned for the first time in the games in Ken's ending in the Japanese version of the original EX2.

Guile is one of the returning characters who appears in Street Fighter IV. He seeks authorization to conduct a rescue mission for his missing comrade Charlie, but his request is denied by his superiors. During the tournament, Guile faces the amnesiac Abel, who claims that he has seen Guile's moves elsewhere. Guile becomes convinced that Abel means Charlie

Guile is, of course, the original "American Army guy" of fighting games. He's also the first to sport that unique head of hair, which adds to his originality. Guile is certainly one of the most memorable and iconic fighting game characters of all time. Even the button commands of his attacks have been a big inspiration in many fighting games (especially 2D), influencing the likes of Robert, Ash and of course Remy, to name just a few. And just for the record, Guile is in no way related to Jean Claude Van-Damme. lol.

  

My favorite iteration of Guile would have to be his CVS2 appearance.......capcom still used his alpha 3 sprite but he still blended well with everyone else. The main reason i like his CVS2 appearance so much was because of his voice it was his most awesome voice work to date in my opinion. If you have not played or seen CVS2 look it up its awesome. Guile has been a capcom favorite for many many years and he will always be one of my all time gaming favorites. What do you guys think of guile? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Review: Megaman X Command Mission

By: blazemanx Jun 12, 2011 | 6 Comments

The blue bomber's first true RPG experience.

When I first heard word that Megaman X: Command Mission was going to come out, I instantly got very excited. The first true RPG ever to grace the Megaman legacy? Would this RPG turn out to be a great addition to the series, or would it be another one of those many failed attempts at broadening Megaman's horizons? 

Story:
Well, stories were never the Mega Man series' strong point, but they at least put out a decent one. Veteran Maverick Hunters, X and Zero, as well as their new partner, Shadow, hear of Epsilon, the leader of the Rebellion, leading a Maverick uprising. So, with the assistance of Colonel Redips back at the base, they head over there to find out what is going on, and what the substance "Force Metal" has anything to do with it. Through a twist of fate, X finds himself alone and ends up in the base of the Resistance, a Giga City force fighting the Rebellion. Can X and his friends, quell the uprising and make Giga City safe for the Reploids again? Trust me -- while the story sounds simple, I guarantee that you will be surprised. Oddly enough, X changed from pacifist to a guy that'll point his gun at anyone that even remotely might pose a threat. Guess our Blue Bomber finally grew up, huh? 

Graphics: 
Decent, but could be better. They used cell-shading for the character models in the game itself, but I wish they had done more motion to the cinema sequences. One character's mouth didn't even move while he spoke . It was odd watching them have a neutral expression while they shouted death threats at the enemy. 

Gameplay:
Fluid. It has your typical RPG elements - EXP points, money (Zenny), Life, etc. Instead of armor, you equip "Force Metal". The catch is, if the amount of Force Metal is above the resistance level of the character, they will suffer in the form of LE loss, WE loss, etc. For the most part, it is a RPG and Mega Man X fused into one: each "Chapter", you go around defeating the bosses, picking up rare and not-so-rare items, and recruiting characters to join your cause. There are a total of seven playable characters, each with their own unique weapons and abilities, and each time you level up, all seven get the EXP points (unless they are dead, of course). You have your typical RPG ailments, which were changed into mechanical terms (such as 'Poison' was changed into 'Virus') and your elemental weaknesses (then again, Mega Man games have always had this factor...). And, believe it or not, brute force is NOT always the way to go in this game! Strategy is key into winning, as it will help you tremendously. Of course, if you feel brute force will work, go for it. =) And of course, Final Strike. Once you have three people in your party, depleting an enemy's life to 25% will allow you to activate Final Strike. This is basically a flashy way to finish an enemy off, but it can give you the extra nudge you need to, and dramatically boosts the amount of stuff you retrieve from battle. 

Music:
I loved the soundtrack, even if others didn't. I find myself humming the tunes along, and I'm glad that they allowed you to listen to the game's soundtrack in the Sky Room. I even went out and searched for the music online just so I could listen to it whenever I wanted to. The only problem I had was with the voices. While I enjoyed some characters voices (Marino's, Ferham's, and Mach Jentra's were well done), others made me want to gag (such as Cinnamon's). 

Difficulty:
The game was not extremely difficult, but I did see the game over screen a few times. The bosses themselves can be a tad difficult at times, but with a correct strategy you can basically beat any boss without much effort. I ran away from barely any battles in the entire game and I had some slight difficulty with the last boss, that was about it. When all of the characters in your party die, you are given the option by the game to A. Restart the Battle, B. Load from the memory card, or C. Accept defeat and go to the title screen. For the most part, you'll be picking A so that you wont have to go back to the last save point (Which is quite nice). 

Extras:
I think the extras themselves take up 90% of the game. At a certain point, you can deploy recruited mechaniloids to the stages to gather up goodies, ranging from more money to extra weapons to stuff for the Sky Room. Oh yes, the Sky Room. A great place to hang out. Figure sets found and bought from the vending machines can be viewed here, as well as sketches drawn by Capcom artists themselves (once they are gotten, of course). You can customize the room by placing different posters, and listen to music and watch cinema sequences from the game. You can even customize X himself by changing the color of his scarf! There are secret bosses which will give you fabulous, extremely rare prizes if you beat them, secret shops with rare items, and the Challenges. Fulfilling Challenges will unlock more items for you. So, how do you know whether you fulfilled a challenge? Check the computer terminal in the Sky Room. It gives you very useful data on the challenges you have fulfilled as well as the amount of items found in each stage, the maximum attack strength you've done, etc. It will become your best friend in the game. 

Final Verdict: BUY IT

To Mega Man fans and new RPG players, this is a welcome game. It's a little simple, so RPG players that prefer hard, complex, extremely irritating-style games will be a bit turned off. However, there are truly no bad points to this i enjoyed this game, and would recommend purchasing it if you are able to find it.  

So does this game seems as though it's worth looking into? Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
