I love Mega Man. And I love the Game Boy. But Mega Man on the Game Boy? It shouldn't work. And the first four times they tried it, it doesn't really look like it did. But as the old saying goes, the fifth times the charm!
Because Mega Man V...is...awesome.
It looks good. It controls well. It sounds great. It has a different story with different robot masters. And it has a robotic cat. He kinda sucks, but still. This game takes that NES Mega Man goodness we all knew and loved and puts it in your pocket on a puke green screen, and it works so damned well. I would argue this game is better than a couple of the NES Mega Man games, to be honest.
My buddy Patrick is a Game Boy super fan, and he returns to the show this week to combine his handheld nerdiness with my Mega Man obsession, and we churned out a podcast that's almost as good as Mega Man V itself.
And before we fight planets and Tango, I sneak in another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This week, I talk about games that I never would have tried without GamePass. A listener challenges me to read a comment full of ten dollar words (and I fail miserably). And which Metroid villain would you rather run into in a dark alley? SA-X, or an E.M.M.I?
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring what might be the three best Mega Man games ever created - Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3, and Mega Man X.
