Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, Inti Creates has finally put a bow on its spiritual successor to Mega Man, Mighty No. 9; the game went gold today, with a fixed release date of June 21. It's been a long road, getting from there to here, but the time is finally near — the time for playing Mighty No. 9.
In the meantime, I'm going to use this as an excuse to continue the Mega Man-a-thon stream series by jumping into the best Mega Man game ever: Mega Man 2. Did you think I was going to say Mega Man 3? I mean, that's a fair argument, too. Come join the stream, watch me play, and come to blows over whether Mega Man 2 or 3 is the better game. It'll be fun, in the same way every brutal Internet argument is fun.Watch live video from usgamernet on www.twitch.tv
I'll be streaming Mega Man 2 this afternoon beginning at 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. PT), and if all goes well I'll be able to complete it in one sitting. I've streamed Mega Man 2 before, so there's no reason for me to drag this entry of the Mega Man-a-thon out... except, of course, for the fact that Mega Man 2 is an amazing game that I would happily play on a daily basis if I could. But onward and upward; I need to make my way along to the equally excellent Mega Man 3 in short order as well.
Join me here at 5 ET/2 PT as I play through Mega Man 2, hopefully, in its entirety! If I can make it through the whole game today, I'll move along to the next in the series on Wednesday.
