Community member perri had the opportunity to attend Korea's G-Star trade show this past weekend and made it a point to check out the demo for Rockman Online. He posted his impressions on his blog, and sad to say, they are a tad on the negative side.

Though the game is played from the same side perspective as the classics, he found the controls to be sluggish, the animations to be stiff, and the environments and music to be flat and lifeless. One fault that particularly stood out was that while you could dash, jump, and shoot all at the same time in the original X games, here you can only perform two of those abilities at once. This may cause problems for gamers hoping for a more traditional play experience.

As perri mused, these changes could probably attributed to the nature of MMO gameplay. It wasn't all bad, though, as he expressed interest in the new upgrade system, specifically certain specialty parts that boost a single attribute at a time.

You can read more about perri's impressions on his blog. As an extra bonus, you can also check out further demo details from The Mega Man Network as well as gaze upon redesigned Classic series characters Proto Man, Punk, Enker, Ballade, Cut Man, and Pharaoh Man in the gallery below.

Pretend to be shocked: Rockman Online is likely cancelled

At $10, yeah, Guild Wars 2 is worth playing

As a casual MMO player, I've always liked the Guild Wars series -- no monthly subscription fits my lifestyle, you know? I don't have to feel guilty about wasting money by not playing "enough," whatever that is. If you're of a...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more
