Why I think Mega Man needs to move forward
« on: May 08, 2017, 03:07:40 AM »
Gee, it's a been a while since I posted here AGAIN, huh? Now, I don't want to sound like that kid who did that racist Mega Man 9 review, But I had mixed thoughts when 9 and 10 were released. 9, I was okay with considering a lot of people wanted a "callback" game for a while, 10 though... Wasn't my cup of tea, And what really turned me off from both games was the removal of the charge shot and slide. Now before I begin, I want to tell you guys what I coin as "NSMB Syndrome", Which is moreso being over-reliant on nostalgia/"callback" elements (especially moreso when it's used more than once or multiple times in a row in just a few years), not introducing much new or barely making a change. Such examples are so:

inb4 somebody calls me one of the butthurt fans for complaining about Green Hill Zone for the uptenth time.
This has been something that has bugged me with so many game franchises, The term obviously being coined from New Super Mario Bros. and the effect it had on the Mario series during the Wii U era. Now, This is fairly old but a while back there was news about Capcom having a survey of which franchises fans would like to see make a comeback - One of which being Mega Man 11. Now, I know there are going to be people who are going to disagree with me, But IMO - If Mega Man DOES come back, It needs to really be a true Next-Gen sequel to Mega Man 8, Moreso in gameplay and mechanics especially. Because if they go for another "NES 8-bit callback with no charge shot or slide"? It's going to have the same negative effect NSMB had on the Mario series and the reliance of Green Hill Zone/Classic Badniks being shoved into Sonic games. ((And my personal complaint, Pac-Man being limited to his arcade roots instead of being able to expand upon that ALA Pac-Man World))

What do you all think? Is it time for change? What do you want to see?
