Mega Man 11 |OT| The Gears of Fate turn for us all...

OT fail. The character's name in the West in Mega Man, not Megaman. Capcom's never referred to him as Megaman in any official material ever. One case of the space being missing in the opening cutscene of a space-constricted NES game doesn't supersede literally every other official reference to the character ever made. And it's not "LOL, just personal preference here" either. If you're making the OT for a new game, especially a major series revival like this, get the freaking main character's name right.
Okay, then. Let's play:


Megaman 1 ending

Megaman 2 opening

Megaman 3 ending

Megaman 4 cut-scene

Megaman 6 ending

Megaman 7 cut-scene

Megaman 8 cut-scene

Megaman & Bass cut-scene

Megaman & Bass character select

Megaman Wily Wars cut-scene

Megaman V Opening

Megaman Anniversary Collection Game Select Screen

and it's not limited to the classic series either

Megaman X ending

Megaman X3 ending

Megaman X4 credits

Megaman X5 credits

Megaman X6 credits

Megaman X8 credits

Megaman Legends 1

Megaman Battle Network

Need I go on?

The point is that the majority of the Megaman series has the name as single word for most part (To be fair, I found the space in 5, 9, 10, IV, X2, and Powered Up). I wonder how someone that acts as such an authority and yet, didn't do the proper research to prove me wrong before chiding me. And I'm not going on the various logos and packaging Capcom has created for MM, I'm going on the games themselves. Heck, that doesn't even provide a true source at times as MMPU has Rock named as Mega, and MML has Rock Volunut called "MegaMan Volunut" which doesn't make sense when we learn his real name.

I can't make an OT for a new Legend of Zelda game and refer to the hero as LUCAS throughout the whole thing because that's how I've labeled my save files in past games in that series. "It's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and here's the famous main character LUCAS! Sure looks different than the LUCAS from the last game, doesn't he? He doesn't have the green hat any more!"
That comparison isn't apt at all. A space in the name doesn't mean I'm renaming the game's character against canon. Here, I'll make a better argument for you.


Huh, an old Batman logo has the name of the character as"Bat Man." Guess we have to change all of the Batman media in the last 40+ years. DC better get going. Chop-Chop.

Sorry to go in on this, folks, but I'll be damned if I'll be arguing this point for the next couple of days. It was funny at first, but not anymore. This should be a time for celebration, not for bickering over petty, petty, oh, so fucking petty differences and matters. So, I'll go back to my original point earlier in the thread:

 
Any reviews? I LOVE Mega Man but wasn't feeling the demo at all. Gave me Mighty No. 9 vibes.

I want to read a review before in case I was just not taking it in.
 
Sorry again, all. The comment just rubbed me the wrong way. Hope I didn’t ruin things for anyone. Please continue about the game. It’s why we’re all here for, right?
Don’t worry you didn’t ruin anything! I love this OT. I just wish I had the game right now lol. I’ve spent more hours on the demo than the PS4 Spider-Man game.
 

Since I personally would want to know what each of the Robot Masters' stage themes sound like, I used our review copy to put together a set of OST videos to help everyone pass the time until launch day tomorrow. First up is the unembargoed track, Block's Man Stage Theme.
 
If I preorder Mega Man 11 now (to finally play as Megaman again, MHX was right all along), will I still get those preorder soundtracks? Couldn't find anything in the eShop and I'm not sure if it ever was written down there. Is it too late?

They gave it a 9


Conclusion

Mega Man 11 is an excellent resurgence for the Blue Bomber, imbuing the tried-and-true classic gameplay with modern touches and new ideas that expand on existing concepts in interesting ways. The underlying action platforming gameplay is just as tight and challenging as you remember, and when combined with the new visuals and extra options for replayability, you’ve got a game that’s every bit as good as those that came before, while surpassing them in some ways. Mega Man 11 is a modern classic, a fitting refresh for a beloved series, and we’d highly recommend you add this one to your Switch library whether you’re a newcomer or you’ve been playing since the NES days. Bravo, Capcom.
 
We gave it a 7/10 on Push Square:

Ultimately, Mega Man 11 is another rock solid entry in the long running series. The new presentation style and Double Gear system is largely a success, and aside from some particularly nasty areas and enemy placement, the level design is decent. The level of challenge is what fans will have come to expect of the franchise, but unbelievably strict collision detection can result in some harsh losses. It's a tricky balancing act to make a new Mega Man game for hardcore fans as well as newcomers, and Capcom has just about walked that tricky tightrope, but not without some small wobbles on the way.

Any changes in the release version from the demo as far as how the gear powers are activated?

I thought the powers themselves were pretty cool but the controls around them were very clunky and I think hampered their usage. I think a hold/release option would work so much better.
 
Switch or PS4 version? I need to know which is better.
I only have the Switch version, but I haven't noticed any framedrops or anything, so I imagine the only real difference is resolution.

Really kind of amazing how much mileage they've gotten out of MT Framework after all this time.
 
Anyone know whether it’s better to get the Prima artbook or the udon one that also releases this month?

Also what’s the best way to go to get the Japanese amiibo?

The Prima book is a guide+artvook. The UDON book is a rerelease of an older art book. It does not feature ANY MM11 content.
 
Ya know, I spoke ill of the games sound track in another topic but listening to the music on its own, it's actually really great. I think the various sounds effects and what not might really drown out the tunes in this game .

Come to think of it, maybe the Gear system is a detriment to the sound track.
 
got off greenman awaiting key :D!
It’s Green Man

Wtf @ supposed fans of this series not know he’s called Megaman constantly throughout the games

I don’t really care about the guide. I’m wondering how much historical content is lost to make room for the guide.

I really really hope there is a patch that changes the in-air collision. It was terrible in the demo and doesn't feel right at all.

(... And fixes the gate issue.)
 
Whelp, just pre-ordered as I forgot it includes the DLC music tracks for doing so.

Guess I now I have every mainline MM game on Switch. Lag and all.
