X4 The Last Classic Style X Game
Posted 15 April 2012 - 03:53 AM
Even tho this game was a big step forward for the X series and i might ad in a big step for zero. it still felt like it did when i was a kid and its really a hard feeling to explain......and its silly things like for exaple the light that show up when you fight Colonel for the first time. i don't know why but they felt X3ish to me ...i don't like i said its a hard feeling to explain
Now I'm not at all saying X5 and X6 were bad i enjoyed them all. i mean i loved that in X5 that i got to here a SNES tune remixed...same with X6 on the gate stages it each game tried something new and i don't blame them for wanting to do so.
However their are things in the whole x4-6 series that i would had like to have seen...one being Zero's ultimate Armour....
In X 5-6 i was disappointed to see the Armour system get changed to where parts no longer got showed...however i understood it was because their were more armors in this game. however i do think it whould had been cool if you could had Mixed and matched parts...and i did like that you could use Normal X when ever you wanted
So what are your thoughts on this what did you want to see more of in this Era? or maybe see less of?....maybe you were a die hard Vile fan and your were sad that he never got a PSX show up

Megaman X7 did pretty well in terms of sales after reading a Megaman game sales thread here. (However, the same can't be said for the other X games that were released after X7.)
Although I liked Megaman X7 a lot, I can still respect why people do not really like the game compared to the other Megaman X games. I had no problem with X being an unlockable character since it help me get used to Axl's gameplay. However, I did not like the conditions for unlocking X. It should have been rescuing 16 reploids or beating 2 bosses.
Now that I think about it, it is better to try something new than playing the "Me Too" game (Resident Evil 5 being like Gears of War) or cashing in on a rehash thinking that it might sell because of nostalgia reasons (Megaman X1 for the iPhone). This is especially the case with the way Capcom has been doing their business lately.
Edit: Elaborated more on what I wanted to say.

But those Games really banked off the Nostalgic feeling More so MHX
I Loved That X8 Brought back some of the Classic feelings however the Armour in that game....Yes it looked pretty Cool BUT i kinda wish they made more then just one Model i mean its still the fame Armour just Called a different Name and lit up different Colors and had different powers i mean X5-6 had little sprites but it was that detail in every armor that went along with its name that kept me wanting to collect the parts to know what the whole thing looked like
X8 Just seemed to Focus on 1 type of Armour style and that bummed me out even the Ultimate armour in the same thing i mean sure some of the textures changed a little but to me it was just....meh...ive seen better....Call me a sucker for the SNES style Armour's X7 tried to emulate that And i think that's also what they tried to do with their trailers to begin with TONS of kids all remember X ...Running on that Highway Blowing up Mavericks in his path...First X7 trailer did just that A 3D Megaman X on a familiar Highway...That Made me Want that game
I mean Even the First ZX game took Advantage of this Nostalgia Factor...i Mean a Highway Stage...With Bee Mechs i mean was every one else being reminded of something here
Regardless The X Series has had Many Changes but at the end of the day we still loves these game's eben if they weren't what we expected them to be
