When I first undertook this backloggery idea, I had no idea what I was getting into. I made some crazy mistakes, that made this WAY more difficult than it needed to be.
The BIGGEST mistake I made was putting a bunch of games in a series in a row on the backlog. Before I edited the backlog list, I was originally going to play ALL Halo games in a row, and ALL Final Fantasy games I own in a row.
The Mega Man X series is the reason I changed my backlog. These are fun games, but playing them back to back drove me a bit insane.
That’s why I’m going to review all the Mega Man X games I played REAL QUICK!
Review #4 – Mega Man X
I forgotz to make an image.
Going from the NES Mega Man games, to Mega Man X was a HUGE jump in quality. I love the NES games more just for nostalgia, but Mega Man X is the best in the series. Huge improvement to mobility, secrets, weapons and bosses. Also, the music in this first Mega Man X game is fucking amazing. I love this game!
Review #5 – Mega Man X2
Mega Man X2 improved Mega Man X graphically, musically, and with level design. Yet, somehow I don’t like this one as much as the original Mega Man X. It’s probably nostalgia, but there’s a charm in the original that Mega Man X2 just didn’t have for me. It’s still a great game.
Review #6 – Mega Man X3
Awesome game. Awesome Mega Man X game. My least favorite. Nothing stood out, I still don’t remember it, and I beat it twice.
Review #7 – Mega Man X4
This is going to ruffle some feathers, but Mega Man X4 is my second favorite in the series. It has the same charm as the first with fantastic level design, and also some of the best Robot Masters in the series (yes I’m calling them robot masters, I’m a Mega Man NES junkie). What I REALLY loved about this game is the ability to play as Mega Man X or Zero right from the beginning. Each level can be played with either character, and they require different strategies for each character. It’s very similar to the above games, and just as good.
