I like in Mega Man 6 how after you defeat a Robot Master their spot on the stage select screen is replaced by a smiling Mega Man face

I only logged 8 PS4 games played and the top game for hours played was naturally Cold Steel 3.

Mega Man 6 beated

Stages: Knight Man > Tomahawk Man > Wind Man > Yamato Man > Blizzard Man > Centaur Man > Flame Man > Plant Man

Robot Masters: Tomahawk Man > Yamato Man > Knight Man > Blizzard Man > Centaur Man > Flame Man > Wind Man > Plant Man

I'll give MM6 a lot of credit for leaning hard into the absurdity, realizing we have no conventional Robot Master ideas so now we're going to have fighting robots get hijacked by Mr. X, and we can make them whatever we want. Also, giving Dr. Wily a paper thin disguise (literally only a pair of sunglasses, a fake beard, and a mark on his forehead) shows they aren't taking this whole thing seriously at all, and I can appreciate it. The stages aren't memorable at all though, and it's not a particularly difficult game. I do like what they did with Rush here, having him combine with Mega Man to have a powered up form and a jet form that didn't have powerup limitations. This was by far the most useful Rush yet. I used them all the time.

2 > 3 >= 4 > 6 > 1 > 5

So that's the first part of the collection complete! Now it's time to play 7 and 8 again (both of which I've not played in a very long time), as well as 9 and 10 for the first time!

I did like it a good bit. It's closer to 3 and 4 than it is to 1. I just wish the stages had been a bit better. I honestly can't remember anything notable about any of them.

I've heard a lot of hate for X6 and X7. Have heard X8 is a small return to form?

For some reason I found X5 extremely hard and stopped playing after a couple hours. Like, WAY harder than any previous MM game. Not sure what my problem was.

Huh, I don't recall that being the case. I feel like X4 was tougher for me, especially that last Sigma fight.

It must be, given there's an achievement for falling into a spike trap on easy mode for MMX6...!

I haven't played X8 yet either but everyone tells me that while it's not quite as good as the best in the series it's definitely the best since 5 if not 4. Its worst quality does indeed sound atrocious though -- frequent stops mid-stage for dialogue. That's not how a fast-paced platformer should be!

Yeah, that's one of the downfalls of the PS Mega Man games in general. Don't interrupt me in the middle of the stage for dialogue! Do it before or after, but not during!

This sounds almost as bad as the fact that FF14 has long in-dungeon cutscenes

You would think that someone would have realized that that was bad design for a multiplayer game...!

No, the show is about Krillin now. Everything youve ever seen about Goku was based on these 27 episodes!

Aw yeah I got the insta-pot thing in DQ11! I remember this thing from DQ8! It was pretty cool, although it wasn't instantaneous in that one. Looks like you need recipes to craft new stuff this time around and you can't just throw stuff in to experiment like you could with 8 either, but you can upgrade stuff right away if you've got the right materials, looks like, so that's nice.

I made it through the Door of Departure in DQ11, even though that sounds more like it belongs in a Kingdom Hearts game!

That time traveling segment in Cobblestone caught me completely off guard. That was really well done. It reminded me of one of my favorite segments in Trails SC. And to show it wasn't a dream, we got a letter from Chalky in the present about it! Also, the Hero is the prince of the fallen kingdom of Dundrasil. His mother and father thought they could trust the king of Heliodor with the knowledge that he's the Luminary, so I wonder what went wrong with him. I'm sure we'll find out eventually.

We tackle our first dungeon proper finding Erik's orb, even though he's yet to explain why he even needs it. All in due time, I suppose. We barely managed to escape from Hendrik through the Door of Departure, and now we're in an unknown land. I'll have to figure it out next time!

Hope you avoid it; the few weeks of smoke from the CA fires the past few years were awful, and I understand that some parts of Australia are way worse than that!
