Big fan of 7. MM8 is comedy gold as the voice actor for Dr. Light had a speech impediment resulted in weird pronunciations of names and words in general. Dr. WaWii instead of Dr. Wily for instance is my personal favorite.

I just looked up some clips from MM8 based on your post, that was absolutely amazing!

ZeekQuattro28d ago

It was awesomely bad. Part of be wishes they had brought back that actor for 11. lol

VideoChums28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Yes, the voices in those anime cutscenes are so bad that they're good :D

I’m still disappointed that MM10 didn’t use the artstyle of MM8. MM9 was excusable but the second time they wanted to retro they should’ve went with the best artstyle of the franchise rather than go 8 bit again

VideoChums28d ago

It was probably much cheaper to do 8-bit visuals. You don't really see many games with amazing pixel-perfect 2D graphics like in Symphony of the Night, etc, nowadays.

PhoenixUp28d ago

Yeah it was cheaper but it’s not like the devs of that game were strapped for cash. Would’ve been great to see Capcom not aim for NES graphics again

Exactly. Unfortunately, cheaper is always the better option in most game developers' eyes this day and age. That's what makes developers like Hideo Kojima stand out as true visionaries as they put time and money in the back seat and focus on quality and originality above all else.

Hello. Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that you can vote on your favourite of the two games at the bottom of the article (like with all of our Versus pieces).

Mega Man 7 has one of my favorite MM soundtracks. I would make up lyrics to each track while playing it back in the day. lol.

VideoChums27d ago

That's awesome! You should record that and upload it. :D

Orionsangel27d ago

It would be embarrassing but maybe lol
