What happened to these X games?

14 posts in this topic

I was so pumped to get the Legacy Collection. I had only ever played the first 3 as a kid and really was looking forward to some nostalgia. I played through the first 3, and then..... I couldn't believe it, and still can't but the games are getting worse with each successive title.

 

X4 they introduced stuff like the stupid bike (im aware this was in X2 but barely, and nowhere near as crazy), and less energy tanks, READY?????

 

X5 had multiple endings, RNG, more of the stupid bike, not getting to use your armor until you have all the parts. and Quick man lasers.

 

Surely it can't get worse than X5...

 

But then I start to play X6.

 

I have tried i think 4 stages so far, and every stage has had a ridiculous health draining mechanism that kills you if you stand still. There is almost no resting time anywhere, and some spots where you CAN rest, you get randomly attacked by Zero.

 

Amazon --> Unlimited mantis respawns that wreck you if you stop for even a moment

North Pole - So far cant even get past the first slope. Non stop avalanches and if you stop for even a second non stop Zero damage

Temple - Acid rain, and every hole you jump over there's a timed enemy shot that if it hits you, you fall and die. So now I have to get hit on purpose before trying to make any jumps

Laser - Unlimited random bug spawns that get in the way constantly

Museum - One million soul sucking octupus spawns that seem endless

 

Like... do people actually enjoy this game?

 

Is X7 even worse??

The bike was introduced in X2.

 

You can use the armor parts as soon as you get them in X4, it's X5 where you have to start collecting all of the data before you can wear it.

 

X7 is possibly one of the worst games ever made

When I was a kid, I managed to rescue all reploids and get all the power ups in X6.

If a kid without skills but with determination could, it should be a breeze for you.

We can agree in one thing: X7 is a fucking disaster, but everything else is beautiful.

You just need time to get used to it. I see a lot of complains for little things.

If Megaman X Corrupted is ever released, do not even try to play it, because is 10 times harder than official games.

Yes? I only commented that this was introduced in X4 which I clearly do not like. But I guess that was X5, alright, its all a blur already. And yeah i remember the bike in X2 but it was nowhere near as ridiculous haha

 

Also there are a million examples of how games as a kid seemed easier than when they showed up in modern times. The games are not perfect clones of each other. There is input lag and other such things. Remember jumping rope 1000 times in FF9 as a kid? me too! Did I have trouble getting to 200 jumps as an adult? You betcha!

I just went through all of MMX6 last night. I got along better with MMX6 in my mind when I started thinking of it as Mega Man X6: Dark Souls

X6 was never really hard to me per se, just really badly designed.

It was NOT introduced in X4, you equip the armor as soon as you get it from the capsule, X5 was the first to introduce it.

X6 have a good Story, but unfair Levels and Gate is maybe the unfairest Boss in all MM-Games!

 

But MMX7 is more awful into Design and have much unfair bosses (the One of big Robo and Red!!)

High Max is easy, WHEN you know how, but Gate ... argh!

 

And Story in MMX7 ... is good too, but Gameplay ... VERY Awful!!!

X8 have good Story and good Gameplay, but too many open things in Story ...
