Mighty No. 9


DeathscytheX

Here is a tech demo for the Mega Man indie clone, Mighty No. 9. Its resemblance comes from Mega Man's co-creator Keiji Inafune, who left Capcom in 2010. Since Capcom owns the rights to all his creations he set out to make a new game that would play like the beloved blue bomber series which has been mostly neglected for years. When Inafune put his concept for Mighty No. 9 on Kickstarter it was met with an overwhelming response.

I'm glad they're showing the progress they are making towards completing the game. At 1:01 you can see Mighty No. 9 shooting at a diagonal. I'm starting to think this game will have similar controls to A.R.E.S. which is another mega man inspired game. In A.R.E.S. you can shoot in all angles by using the right analog stick or shoot directly ahead, or maybe for Mighty No. 9, do power up shots by pressing and / or holding the attack button while jumping and dashing. The 3D side scroller design of this game is very similar to the way Worms Revolution looks compared to Worms Reloaded.

I'm pretty excited about this game. Mega Man 9 was just insanely hard... too hard. Mega Man 2 set the bar for difficulty, and Mega Man 9 just took it too far... then as a counter they made easy modes for Mega Man 10 that just soiled the tradition.

 

I'm liking what I am seeing with this game. It seems to combine the worlds of Mega Man Classic and Mega Man X.

The first Mega Man X was the perfect Mega Man game for me. All the rest of the mega man games from that point on where insanely difficult. Its one of the few games that I wish would give me a damn easy setting. Those games frustrated the hell out of me. I'd rather play and enjoy the game instead of replaying the same stages over and over again just to memorize enemy attack patterns.

New gameplay clip. It looks good, but I hope they show off some new weapons or upgraded abilities in their next videos. That dash moves seems to be a crucial component of combat.

Deep Silver has teamed up with the legendary development teams at Comcept and Inti Creates to bring you the next evolution of a classic gameplay genre. Mighty No. 9 releases on September 15th featuring Cross-buy on PS4/PS3/PS Vita exclusive to PlayStation platforms.

 

This is going to be so much fun.. as long as there is a difficulty option. Megaman X was my favorite.. almost all the others were rage inducing unbeatable games for me. :eyetwitch:

A year after they said it would come out in September of 2015, we now have this promotional video:

 

“And make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night”

With the amount of money this game got from kickstarter, I'm really surprised the graphics quality isn't far more impressive than this. And it looks like they went overboard with the dashing. If 95% of the game is having to stare at that dashing animation and endless explosions caused by that dashing animation, I won't be rushing to buy this.

Is that the VA for Sonic from the 90s cartoon? XD This commercial is horrible and looks like a 90s video game ad you would have seen during Nickelodeon morning cartoons.  The dash move can make or break this game. On one hand the combo system can make it sorta like Dust: an Elysian Tail, or it could make the game frustratingly harder than its suppose to be. I don't like gimmicky movement systems that rely on insane amounts of muscle memory and coordination. If it makes me fall to my death a bunch, I'll pass on this game. I'm def not getting it when it come out until I see a lot of gameplay footage.

Polygon has 40 minutes of footage. I'm not impressed. It looks like a megaman game mixed with the Worms Revolution game engine to give it the 3D look for a 2D platformer. I skipped through a bunch of the gameplay and you have to dash to finish off all the enemies to get the combo bonus. I'll pass on this. Endless dashing and sluggish looking movement. A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda is still my goto megaman clone game. Maybe the full review will shed a better light on it. It could be a solid game. Either way I bet it'll be in a humble bundle before the end of the year.

We got Mighty Number 9 for free with ps+ so I gave it a try this weekend. There is no difficulty option but you can set the max lives up from 3 to 9 and there is a kind of adaptive difficulty because when you die, there is a friendly robot at the checkpoint that will give you temporary power ups based on how many times you've died which is nice. I beat one stage, Brandish... and I found it nauseating because it was on a free way, scrolling to the right with the background is zipping by going to the left and multiple cars going left and then right to create a platform experience all while billboard enemies kept flying from the right to left to knock you over. Until I got used to them they kept blending right in with the background.. but because of these enemies you have to stare at the background. I was basically getting motion sickness. After that stage I tried Pyro.. that stage was fine until the end where there was a bunch of instant death mechanics to suck away all my reserve lives. Then when I got to the boss, after he has half his hp taken away he then turns bluish and now has a 1 touch instant kill feature. Every time I'd die I'd get a power up from the checkpoint robot which was pointless in adjusting the difficulty when the boss can 1 touch kill you.. oh, and when he gets that ability there is an annoying bit of dialogue at the bottom of the screen that talks over the robot's called out attacks which made the entire fight extremely aggravating. To top it all off, the game genuinely looks ugly. Everything has a whitish outline and character design looks like bad action figure toys with Popeye arms.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
