Mega-awesome

A few days ago we bought Mega Man 9 from tne online Nintendo store. It’s a brand new Mega Man game done NES-style, and, though difficult, it’s amazing. I’ve forgotten how satisfying it is to replay a level over and over until you’ve perfected it. Cy and I have probably logged 4-5 hours and have beaten five of the bosses, and we savor each sweet victory (especially the ones that come with one remaining sliver of life).

I do think it’s kind of cheap that you can buy as many energy tanks as you want. I clearly remember there being four in all of Mega Man 2, and that I hoarded them until the very, very end. I’m willing to overlook this because the second I picked up the controller I was instantly transported back to my 10-year-old self.

Available for XBox360 and PS3 too. What are you waiting for?
