Ryan is back with another edition of Awesome Video Game Memories, and while it seems his excitement has gradually become more subdued as he talked about the Classic series, you can definitely feel the electricity as he shares his experiences with seeing and playing Mega Man X for the first time. (Warning: A little Not Safe For Work)
And really, who here can't relate at least a little?
He also brings up some neat little minutia from the days of early previews in video game magazines, such as the odd masked all-blue armored X (which I think was oddly missing from Mega Man X Official Complete Works?) and the tales of the "RoboPolice".
Also: People who insisted that it was "Mega Man 10," ignoring the absence of Mega Man 7 through 9 at the time. (Me: "Sure, and after I'm finished playing Mega Man 10, I'm going to read some 10-Men comics before watching a new episode of the 10-Files.")
Suffice to say, as a fan of Mega Man, the coming of Mega Man X was an experience like no other, and I'm sure many of you have your own similar thoughts and feelings to relate. So feel free to do so in the comments below!
