As long as it's along the same lines a MM 9/10 I'm happy. But if anyone can find a way to screw it up, it'd be Capcom.

Well, It's good they are working on a new MM.
Hopefully it's a X9 with gameplay like X1, or a MM11 that plays like MM3

Hopefully it'll be a good one. I agree with what you said too TheDreamingHawk. X1 was one of my favorites in the entire franchise. MM3 was for a while as well as that was the only MM game I owned until X1 came out. MM2 is probably my favorite overall, then X1.

I'm fine if there isn't a new one, I've got the other 17 thousand MM games to play again. Of course if there is a new one, I hope it's not another mediocre Legends game. Overrated series.

YES. Finally, someone else who agrees that Legends wasn't really that good of a game. I was personally more upset with the cancelation of MMU more than anything

Nope. Every bit as too good to be true as I knew it was.

Who's excited to get a new version of Street Fighter Bore, though? That'll just be a blast.

Mega Man Legends had fully voiced in-engine cutscenes a year before and far better than Metal Gear Solid.
It also had lock-on targeting before Ocarina of Time. Too bad people like you don't care.

Mega Man Legends 1 had problem. Legends 2 had fewer problems. Legends 3 would have been just fine. It's not like Dead Rising and Lost Planet are beacons of exceptional game design. The Mega Man Legends games were ambitious and highly likable in an age where most everything else on the platform was blocky and unimaginative.

Capcom trolling it's submissive fanbase again, what a shocker.

Yay, Mega Man 4 and 5 are my favorites in the original NES series!

I wonder if the Wii will ever get Mega Man 6...

I'm getting real tired of you crap, Capcom.
If you're going to talk about Megaman, don't let the rest of the world hear it unless they're getting a new goddamn Megaman game!

Stop taking this so personally, you guys. It was obviously a misquote.
