Megaman Legends

Post by Dollow » Thu Sep 02, 2010 1:03 am

Did anyone play Megaman Legends 1 or 2 for the ps1? I just found my old copy of 1 and I just started playing, and I fell in love with the game all over again. I find it funny that this was maybe the only one of the Mega Man in 3D that that did right and it stop only after two games.

I wish I had part 2.

Funny; I have part two, but I lack part one (In a sense; I have part one via emulator, while I own a retail version of part two). Used to own both, but the first part's disc snapped in two. :<

This was by far one of my more favorite Playstation games back in the day; all the rumors buzzing around recently about the next mega man game has me hoping for a third game in the Legends genre.

I had the first one a long while ago but ended up selling it, a decision I regret to this day. I'd love to try the second, and if what I've heard is correct The Misadventures of Tron Bonne is rare/fun enough that if someone offered you a copy in exchange for your kidneys you would be well advised to remove the organ in question barehanded and present it immediately. :shock:

But on a less disturbing note, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has a special place in his heart for the series and has several times stated he would like to continue the series. In fact, Comic-Con recently sparked rumors that a third title might be a possibility:
"Mega Man Universe is not the only game currently in the works starring the Blue Bomber. There's at least one more, and Inafune said it was a project people had requested for quite a while. That brought scattered calls for Mega Man Legends 3 from the crowd, to which Inafune simply responded, Thank you."

lol, aren't video game developers such a tease? xD

if there was indeed a Megaman Legends 3 confirmed, i'd be all over it and would pre-order the most limited edition (if available) ASAP.

I will only believe it when I buy it, they have been saying it for years and then they made that cellphone game of legends. I would thing myself on anything, I just hope its made because to me it seem everyone only cares about the X and Zero series. But at least that interveiw give me hope.

Alas, I am not. It is dear to me, and it was memorable how I obtained it. I was too lazy to return it to Blockbuster after renting it, so they pretty much sold the game to me without my permission, for a mere $5 restocking fee thing. Ca-ching~!

I played part one on the N64 (renamed MegaMan 64) and I bought part 2 for my ps2, but my ps3 is backwards compatible. The second part is so much better!! The laser sword is totally bitchin'. =o

Do you guys want me to record any gameplay? I wouldn't really know what to show off. Plus, it's been so long I probably can't remember my way around. >,>;

IMO, the X series has gone downhill ever since they went 2D3D with X7 and X8 on PS2. the Zero series has alway been fun to me and i love playing as Zero, the side story is awesome.

but yes...all hail Megamn Legends!!!

I played mega man legends 1 on the N64 and it was just called Mega Man 64, eventualy I found an old copy of Legends 2 at a game stop and bought it. I enjoyed them both I just wish they would make a new version for 360/PS3.
If knowing is half the battle then Im going in unarmed.

Don't let the name fool you, though. The 3DS is not a "newer version" like the DSi or the DSi XL, it's the machine's true successor. The graphical power is much, much improved.

The demo footage that they showed off looked every bit as nice as the PS2 for many of the demos.

Not to mention it's already stellar lineup of games. Zelda: Ocarina of Time remake, StarFox, MGS3D, Kingdom Hearts 3D, two different Resident Evils, Super Robot Wars, Pilot Wings, and Kid Icarus just off the top of my head.

But, I will say that the timing of the DSi XL's NA release was terrible. Mainly because by the time we got it, the 3DS was announced by Nintendo.

That being said, I was giddy as a school girl when I read about MegaMan Legends 3 on Kotaku this morning. 'Bout damn time.

This is one I can finally check off my list of "Games I've Always Wanted, but Will Never See the Light of Day".

Well according to IGN the 3DS reportedly has roughly twice the processing speed and quadruple the RAM. So it is most certainly not a revamp of the existing hardware. So the next question: is it worth paying roughly $300?.

agreed. i really never understood the need to release the DSi XL. sales were terrible as far as i know, i don't think i recall ever seeing ANYONE carrying around an XL lol. the screen size improvement just isn't that important to the "hardcore" DS/DSi users. the DSi itself was a fine upgrade with it's new features though. honestly, i think Nintendo should've just scrapped the XL's idea and put their efforts towards the 3DS instead.

nonetheless, i'll stick with my DS Lite until i get my hands on a 3DS :D

I actually have the XL. The bigger screen is a nicer improvement then one would suspect, but the only reason I have one is that my plain DS broke down and the XL had just released. All things considered, my funds are usually scarce so if the price really turns out to be $300 I may wait for the price to dip a little before finally snagging one.

It was one of those very poor business decisions that pretty much work only with people who have too much money to spend, along the lines of the utter failure and I-don't-know-why-they-thought-it-would-work of the PSP Go. Download only? Seriously? Even before Sony came around and said that their promise of getting all owned games for free download went out the window, it just meant you'd have to pay more for the system, as much for games, and even more for memory sticks because of your increased memory usage, all for a little less size and weight.

So yeah, just a larger screen on the XL was just another poor decision, especially with people like me who found the DSi pointless enough and stuck with their old Lites. Looks like they finally got their act back together with the 3DS, although as mentioned the projected pricing is discouraging. I'll also be one of those people who will probably wait until the prices drops, but I'm more than likely to get it with Megaman Legends 3 on the way for it. :)
