Caffeinated Thoughts I mentioned in 2010 that I had never played any Mega Man game for any length of time. Now that we are 2013, that unfortunately still has not changed.
If you are not familiar with Mega Man 9, it is categorized as an "Action, Platformer", and below you can see a video Capcom used to help promote the game back in 2008:
Being that I really enjoy platforming games, I don't know why (other than my cheapness) that I don't own any of the Mega Man games. Hopefully, Nintendo gets the Wii U's Virtual Console and eShop issue straightened out quickly. Perhaps after they figure it out, I will look at purchasing a Mega Man game and be able to play it on just the Wii U GamePad, as I have come to enjoy that feature for several Wii U games already.
Questions If you have played Mega Man 9, do you know how many hours you played the game? Also, if you're a fan of the series, do you hope Capcom continues the Mega Man series; perhaps with a retro-styled Mega Man 11, or maybe with a totally different styled Mega Man game?
