    Just what the fuck happened with this game.

      Nothing, clearly.

      WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN!?

      - The story and translation are terrible. Everyone knows this already. Moving on.

      - BN4 is extremely stingy with giving the player good payouts throughout the story. You're underpowered at all times in the face of this game's sadistic viruses(es) compared to past titles, and there are way too many mandatory story moments where you're forced to give up your zenny, so it's impossible to save up for actual important stuff to buy like chips and powerups. I had to cheat my way through the game just to level the playing field, and this was only the initial playthrough before everything gets ridiculously stronger on subsequent NG+.

      - Every single scenario is fucking horrible. I can't stress enough that there isn't a single fun scenario to be had here. Everything forces you to run around the internet doing time-wasting tasks that range from tedious fetch quests to soul-sucking minigames that are harder than they have any right to be for a children's RPG game. Most if not all of them require precise timing and having to start over if you screw up even a couple times. And when it's not Mario Party AI-run minigames, it's obnoxious crap like having to locate the correct chips for ColdMan's scenario, and you're just shit the fuck outta luck if you don't have them at this part of the story. By the way, there's only three actual dungeons in the entire game - most of everything takes place on the main internet with some obnoxious gimmick attacked to it. Ugh.

      - For every improvement or new feature added to the battle system, you have one or two things taken away from you for no apparent reason. The add chip system is gone and you can only have a maximum of eight chips with custom program parts, unless you use Number Soul in one of the versions. Style change is replaced with soul unison, and considering the random order you get them, go fuck yourself if you get stuck with a soul you don't care about. Full synchro replaces bugfrag counter drops from 3, which makes it harder than ever before to collect bugfrags. ModTools and compression codes are completely gone for the NaviCust. The end result is a messy hodgepodge which can't figure out whether it wants to improve or replace BN3's battle system outright.

      - You can't run away from random encounter bosses. You can in past games. I don't think I need to explain what's wrong with this picture. And the omega variants are extremely brutal. AquaMan alone had 1800 HP. Jesus christ!! WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA!?

      - lol having to play the entire game three fucking times

      The only Megaman game that I've played is about 6 minutes of the MM11 demo...

  2. I think Sonic Labyrinth would have been a much better game if it had been repurposed into a minigolf game not unlike Kirby's Dream Course. A game where you have to move Sonic around by spindashing is a really neat idea. It's a pretty mediocre game overall but not without some merit or interesting ideas imo. Of all of the classic platformers, G Sonic is the only one I haven't beaten and can't bring myself to. It just looks and feels bad. I'm sure it's still better than Advance 3, though.
  3. I'm good at video games

  4. Battle Network 4 makes me want to do my homework

    1. Celestia

      I assume parents love this game.

  5. Think I'm coming down with something, really worried about it.

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      I'm really sorry. I hope it's nothing major.

      Well, if the probabilities are on your side it could be just common cold, and as long as you're not an elder person or have some health problems that'd make you more vulnerable to the corona virus you're prolly safe from the worst harm anyway.

      I suppose resting (and trying to boost your health/immunity, I have heard lemon, ginger, honey and some type of zinc are good for that) would be handy in all cases if it's possible for you to take a break but hopefully it's not corona at least.

      Just take care, I hope it's nothing serious.

      Thanks. I think the likelihood that I got the virus is pretty damn low but I can't help but be paranoid since I'm very germophobic. I'm also very worried about passing it to my family assuming I do have it.

    4. BlueSky

      Well, I feel you, flus are something I hate myself, mostly because they're always hitting in the worst of times when it comes to the schedules, making doing anything three times as hard as usual and all. Probably the only reason I know any of those helps for flu at all... I cannot use the public transportation without gloves anymore, I have seen people first coughing on their hands and then touching and basically wiping their paws each and every bench-holding pillar on the way to the bus door... There was a person practically coughing straight into my hand in a train and after that I decided I'm not showing my ticket card to the reader anymore in there since it isn't obligatory when the ticket is for a certain time period anyway.

      Hope it gets better and isn't corona in your case.

  6. BN3's story is really good

    1. Kuzu

      Easily the peak of the franchise.

      Dr. Cossack being the one who created Bass is a really cool twist. 

  7. There's an artist I follow on Twitter who draws almost nothing but Android 21 every single day. And they're really damn good at drawing her. You're fine.
  8. Finished OSS, that's the first Battle Network game I ever finished 100% with all chips and Bass defeated. And it's gonna be the last because boss hunting is the fucking worst.

  9. Fuck off Capcom for making two event-only chips in OSS that can't be traded between games. It'd be like distributing an event Pokemon that you can't transfer between two games of the same generational pair.

  10. PSA everyone, don't talk about piracy on these forums. I've been seeing a lot of comments and posts lately mentioning this stuff so I want to remind you all that we forbid discussion of these matters here, and we're not going to assist anyone having trouble regarding games downloaded from the net. That is all.

      Can we talk about regular pirates? Like Blackbeard and eyepatches and treasure and stuff????

      @Sean i was not expecting to see that image tonight for the first time in my life but i'll be damned if i'm not super happy that i did

  11. Something that's cute about OSS is that when playing as Geo, the normal virus theme is replaced with the one from Star Force 1, and the SF1 boss music plays when you're fighting ClockMan.EXE. Though I wish they used the victory music too while they were at it.

      What game is that again?

      Rockman.EXE: Operate Shooting Star.

      How do you get a translated version?

    4. Sean

      Sean

      @Pelvic WOO! engine There's a translation patch for the DS version. I'm not using it since I'm playing my imported copy on my 3DS though. I just follow an LP.

      https://forums.therockmanexezone.com/rockman-exe-operate-shooting-star-translation-proj-t4427.html

  12. So I played Battle Network 1, 2, 5 on the DS, and now I'm back to 1 on the DS with an untranslated cartridge, which makes NumberMan's random password doors a lot more annoying when I don't understand the hints lol

      What's your opinion on the starforce games? I've just begun playing starforce x ninja x zerker.

      I've only played some of the first game. The battle system is weird and I don't fully understand it like I do with BN's, but I like the story and characters a lot.

    Final gun...

      What an ominous and badass sounding name.

  14. Battle Network 5DS has so many great battle mechanics in it that it can get pretty overwhelming going straight to this from an earlier game. NaviCust, Double Soul, and the DS version's Navi party system that lets you play as other Navis can all help you feel like you're really overpowered even early in the story. The main downside to 5 is that I'm not into the liberation missions, but normal battles and bosses are some of the most fun in the entire series.

    I remember playing the GBA version years ago (back when I was either in high school or early college, I forget) and wasn't a fan of it at all. I couldn't look past how annoying the liberations are I guess, and I was suffering from burnout from previous entries. But playing it on the DS has given me a greater appreciation for it and it's an incredibly polished entry.

  15. Also, I am never touching Z Chaser mode because apparently you can't rebind controls.

    Jesus christ, what were they thinking?
