July 17: Mega Man 8 (XAW, Day 8)
For Day 8, it's the return of one of my favourite subsites! Five-Minute Mega Man hasn't seen activity since Cliffhanger Week, and in that time, something happened to the Mega Man series that nobody saw coming -- it went back to 8-bit. Mega Man 9 and 10 were made in the classic NES style by Inticreates (the guys behind the Mega Man Zero and ZX series). I always said Capcom would make those games someday, but I wasn't expecting retro. Nonetheless, they're lots of fun... and the latest one just happens to fit our theme perfectly.

So here's <b>Five-Minute <a href="../megaman/megaman8.html"><i>Mega Man 8</i></a></b>. ...What? I'm not gonna do them out of <i>order</i>!

(Side note: I've had this fiver half done for quite a while, and it seems I must have worked on it sometime after watching <i><a href="">Grenadier</a></i>. The subtitle explains Grenade Man's line, and one of the author's obvious influences explains Mega Man's reply. Check the show out sometime; at 12 episodes, it's a good couple of afternoons' viewing.)

I fully support you doing them in order, especially since this is the first Classic game I didn't get a chance to play. And I also fully support Trigun over Grenadier.

I have to say though, I loved the voice acting jokes. I've heard samples of the MM8 voices and That wasn't even parody at some points, yet still hilarious. Excellent fiver, Zeke.

Frost Man: Ha! I'm ten times your size! You don't stand a chance against me!
Mega Man: Sorry, but you don't know jack, Frost Man.
Sorry, which game were you fiving?


Mega Man: Still no E-tanks... wait, you're running the machine? Where's Auto?
Roll: Missing. We think Wily stole him.
Mega Man: Oh, that does it! This time I'm busting him for grand theft!


Narrator: Jump, jump! Slide, slide! Jump, jump! Jump, jump! Slide, slide! Jump, jump! Slide, slide! Slide, slide! My slide, your slide! My slide, your slide!
Stark is the narrator? No wonder the game gets poor reviews.

Nice subsite logo.

[edit]The fiver is currently listed as Megaman 7 on the subsite page.[/edit]


Sword Man: Welcome. I see you have made it through my ancient cave.
Mega Man: Ancient? It's specifically designed around the weapons of four Robot Masters that Wily built a week ago!


Mini-Boss: AAAAGH! You can't do that! It's cheating!
Mega Man: I am so far beyond caring right now, you're lucky I don't just climb up there and beat you down.
I know the feeling.

Mega Man: Ow! Stop it, Bass! Why must we always fight?
Bass: You know damn well why -- you keep saying my name wrong! I'll stop when you stop!
Mega Man: (shakes head) There's just no getting through to him. Poor, mindlessly violent Bass.
Great fiver, Zeke.

Mega Man... that's some kind of a video game, right?
