So Mega Man V seems to be an updated version of MM IV in terms of gameplay, but this mega punch thing has me scratching my head. I mean sure, there are upgrades, but how is sacrificing the ability to shoot while your charged fist is returning to you a fair payoff for whatever else this thing does?

That does make the Mega Arm more difficult to handle, but if you lose a bunch of your lives in a row, Dr. Light will upgrade Rock so that the Arm fires and returns quicker. Continue to lose your lives and he'll make it nigh lightning-quick.

With its relatively quick charge up time and the other upgrades, like the ability to grab items from a far and hit enemies over and over again, the Mega Arm does rather live up to its reputation as "the most powerful weapon ever devised". Be that as it may, I still prefer the look of the Power Shot from the NES Mega Man 5 and from the Power Fighters.

There's also an upgrade for it to repeatedly punch enemies and grab stuff like Ring Boomerang did in IV, so there's that.

Not really cheating in any sense that I can see. It's not using a code, a hack, or exploiting a loophole or glitch in the game's coding; it was deliberately put there for that very purpose by the developers.

Think Ian will reference the Engrish that is so rampant in the later X series?

As long as it's not directly, that could be fun.

On a related note, I hope he calls Launch Octopus's weapon the "Horming Torpedo"

While not necessarily a part of mega may Capcom is going to release some games to the Nintendo E-Shop, including some of the Mega Man Battle Network games.

Just finish Mega Man Xtreme 2 today, and I have to say, while the story is more interesting, and playing Zero is cool, the game is lacking. It suffers from weird ideas like the DNA soul store (why would X power himself up with the souls of fellow reploids?)

The boss AI is severely reduced from the AI available in the first game, and while there are new levels in this game, they seem to suffer from poor level design. Blast Hornet's stage looks really lazy, and the mechanics in Overdrive ostrich's level are so broken, I died more to learning how to properly jump than anything else.

Also I don't like how defeating an enemy or picking an item up with one character makes it only available to that character.

It's by no means a bad game, but its rather forgettable.

It's nice to see all these old not re-released games getting a chance to be played again. Mega Man 7 and X3 a pretty dang expensive from what I remember correctly, and I mistakenly thought I owned an original SNES copy of the former.
