Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

So, I got the Mega Man Legacy Collection. While it's fun playing through the old levels, the REAL fun part is that you can fight the bosses on their own. I can finally say I've beaten Quick Man... Even though I still can't get through his level.

 

Capcom really should have put 9 and 10 in there, though, just so we can have all the 8-bit games in the series.

Okay, so since this... I'm not going to say week, since I don't know how long I want to keep it going, but this... Whatever's topic is Mega Man. I think I'm gonna start with my top twelve Robot Masters. Why top twelve? Because I like to go TWO steps beyond. Aaaaanyways...

 

12. Air Man

fWznkM9.png

Ah, Air Man. For some reason, I can't beat this guy... At least not with Leaf Shield. He's actually easier to beat with the Buster. Seriously. Anyway, part of the reason I like him is the "Airman ga Taosenai" song. Seriously.

 

11. Sheep Man

nQJYZgs.png

Yes, Sheep Man made this list. No, I was not drunk while I made this list. Anyway, Sheep Man is goofy as hell, and that's why I like him. The weapon you get from him is pretty terrible, but considering the guy is a walking reference to Phillip K. Dick, I can forgive that.

 

10. Tengu Man

CrlYHvN.png

Mega Man 8 was... Okay. It wasn't really as good as the rest of the classic series, the voice acting was terrible and the phrase "Jump! Jump! Jump! Slide! Slide! Slide!" is burned into my mind, but whatever. Tengu Man is just plain cool. His design is pretty badass, and he has a cool hat. Hell, this guy is SO cool, he was in TWO games. TWO.

 

9. Enker

kZBEcAR.jpg

Ah, the first Mega Man Killer. The Mega Man Killers are awesome, and I flipped the hell out when they were released as DLC for Mega Man 10. We finally got to see their sprites in color, which was a reason to rejoice. Anyway, Enker's got a strong "Japanese spirit" even though he looks more like a western knight. Go fig.

 

8. Knight Man

cYwBWUm.png

Speaking of knights, here's Knight Man. Yeah, he's kind of laughably easy if you have Yamato Man's weapon, but he has a cool design. He's apparently defeated more than a thousand other robots in duels. I actually like ALL the designs from 6, but Knight Man's my favorite for some reason.

 

7. Quick Man

PgnRcs2.jpg

Ah, Quick Man. I've never been able to beat your level, but I have been able to beat YOU because of the Mega Man Legacy Collection's boss database. He's a tough boss to beat, especially since his "weakness" only takes off half of his health and you're forced to use the other weapons. Hell, the otherwise OP Metal Blade does NOTHING to him. At all.

 

6. Skull Man

onDqyuP.png

All right, with THAT out of the way, Skull Man is pretty cool. He's a decently tough fight, and he makes better use of his weapon than you ever could. Seriously, Dive Man will kick your ass even IF you use Skull Man's weapon.

 

5. Tornado Man

gYgTTcI.jpg

I really, really, REALLY like the Mega Man 9 Robot Masters. It's the game that got me back into the series, and it's still my personal favorite entry in the entire franchise. Tornado Man is basically a wind-themed Quick Man design was. You know, there's an unusually high amount of wind-themed Robot Masters on this list.

 

4. Shadow Man

4OGvUSg.png

I'll get this off my chest: when it comes to pirates vs. ninjas, I usually go with pirates. I make an exception for Mega Man, because Shadow Man is awesome. No one knows where the hell he came from - Dr. Wily just found him and reprogrammed him. That's all we know.

 

3. Ballade

BUq1oth.jpg

Yep, you knew that another Mega Man Killer would be on this list. He's basically a proto-Bass - a robot created solely for the purpose of being Mega Man's arch-rival. I also like how his "super mode" is basically him putting on shades. His heroic sacrifice is just a bonus.

 

2. Punk

Xn21IMi.jpg

And finishing up the Mega Man Killers, we have Punk. He's just plain badass. The dude can roll up into a buzzsaw! However, even he can't top...

 

1. Galaxy Man

Yw5odDs.jpg

Galaxy Man is just plain fun. He's got a cool, genuinely robotic-looking design, Astro Man-esque LED lights for a face, and he turns into a frickin' flying saucer. Plus, he somehow changes colors while you fight him. Trippy.

Mega Man 9 is one of the only classic Mega Man games I'm actually good at level-wise, really. Jewel Man's level is still a bitch, though.

I think the Mega Man X series is slightly easier because the dash helps you jump further than Mega Man's pathetic jumps in the classic series.

Speaking of Mega Man 9, which has my favorite batch of Robot Masters, here's Hitoshi Ariga's takes on six of them!

6h7S9Dr.jpg

Zgmliza.jpg

Sadly, there are no scans of Magma Man or Galaxy Man's page... Yet.

 

Some of the nice touches I noticed are that:

 

1. Jewel Man's fingertips have been turned into jeweler's drills

2. Splash Woman's helmet has been given a few notches to make it look like a bob haircut and her tail looks more realistic

3. Concrete Man's shoulders rotate like a cement truck's drum and his feet are basically concrete blocks (which is hilarious)

4. Hornet Man's Hornet Chasers have compound eyes, his mouthplate looks like closed insect mandibles and his legs have gained rocket boosters so he can fly

5. Plug Man's plug arm has changed into a different kind of plug adapter

6. Tornado Man's leg-fins can rotate upwards so it looks more "natural" when he spins his legs around for his tornado flight and his head-fins can adjust for aerodynamics.

 

Ariga is awesome.

Also, did you know Ariga did design work for some video games? I know one of them was Streets of Rage 2.
