After Mega Man 8, Capcom spent some time away from the Blue Bomber to work on the X-series and other games that they were currently trying to promote. Convinced he was forgotten about, the world was surprised to find that in 2008, Mega Man would be returning to form and out of what felt like a retirement, and thus Mega Man 9 was born! What’s Dr. Wily up to this time?

Mega Man 9 was a game I was not completely sure how I would be able to play until Capcom revealed a very convenient collection that was coming out to current-gen consoles; including the Nintendo Switch, a system I was very glad I owned at the time of that particular announcement. Because of this collection, I was finally able to get my hands on both Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 without any worry of having to buy DLC and having a single, convenient place to play all of the classic Mega Man games.

Dr. Wily never knows when to quit…and neither did Capcom back when Mega Man was at his peak in popularity. Every year, at least for awhile anyway, Capcom would grant a release on NES and a release on Game Boy, making sure the Mega Man madness would never quit and so gamers could have a new game on each particular platform. However, knowing how incredible Mega Man 2 was for its fans, how did the Game Boy version of this sequel take off? I think it’s time we try to discover that answer.

I admittedly wanted something short to work on in between projects, and since I’ve been trying to cover all the handheld ground for game series I’ve covered on console platforms, and because there is a lot of Mega Man to sort through, I decided to attack this game; Mega Man II for the Game Boy. I remember enjoying this game when I played it for Retro Achievements, but at the same time, I also know that this game is a bit of a sore subject for die-hard Mega Man fans. After finishing the game, I can understand why, but at the very least, this is a game I could recommend for newbies to the series, who might find the NES installments to have too high of a difficulty curve.

That Dr. Wily seems content on not keeping the peace, as he is up to his old tricks, but this time on the Game Boy! Capcom decided that with all the Mega Man love the NES was getting, that it made sense to put the series on the Nintendo handheld as well. And let me just tell you…these games are not just simple ports.

So I needed something short to kill some time before my anniversary. Banjo Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge ran a bit short, so I needed another game about revenge. Enter Mega Man! I had plans to start the Game Boy series at some point this year. This seemed like an appropriate time to, I guess.

Strange things are going on once again and Dr. Wily is yet again at the helm of the chaos. A mysterious robot has been found, a weird energy has been discovered, and eight more robot masters have been unleashed. This is Mega Man’s most colorful adventure yet, but can he outlast the evil doctor’s assault and get through extremely cheesy cutscenes with bad voice acting all in the name of everlasting peace?

It’s no secret that I was going to do this game eventually, and it did take me a while to sit down and finally play through it all, but I knew that I had to do it at some point, and before I started on any other big projects, I figured it was time to get it out of the way. This is probably my least favorite Mega Man game, at the time of uploading this project, but it’s still worth a gander at for sure. Just hope you have good luck finding it or the Anniversary Collection.

When people think of Mega Man on the SNES, they think of the beginning of the Mega Man X series. However, the original series did have one game on the system too in the form of Mega Man 7. Dr. Wily finds a way to escape prison again and has started causing trouble all over the city. On top of that, a strange robot named Bass is also causing trouble. Time for Mega Man to get into action!

Not much to say here; I wanted to do a small project before Super Mario Galaxy started and I felt like Mega Man was the way to go, especially since my usual choice, Sonic, was already used the previous month. Kinda cool though that I’m almost done with the classic series. Although, that also means I may have to look into some other games of the series as well.

The mysterious Mr. X is upon us and he is holding a worldwide robot competition featuring eight of the world’s most dangerous robots, and Mega Man is getting in-the-ring tickets for the event. Looks like this is just another day in the life for Mega Man.

To close out the year 2014, I wanted to start Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the next Mario Kart project, and if at all possible, finish up the NES Mega Man series with the only installment I hadn’t done. With half of the last month remaining, there was just enough time to accomplish this feat as I started Mega Man 6 and pretty much finished it the following week.

Dr. Light has been kidnapped, but the lead suspect is none other than….Proto Man? How can Mega Man’s brother be responsible for this new fiendish plot?

This was the final project of the Mega Man marathon before I returned to the projects I was working on beforehand. I decided to take on MM6 at a later date. As glad as I was that the hiatus was over, I had a lot of fun with this mini marathon.

Dr. Cossack, a new scientist in town, wants to challenge Mega Man for some reason. Mega Man must now face against this new rival in a new land.

I don’t have a lot to say here that wasn’t already said in the first three Mega Man projects. My computer still wasn’t ready and I needed to keep going with the marathon to provide content for you guys.

The Mega Man marathon continues strong with Mega Man 3, one of my personal favorites of the series!

After the events of Mega Man 1, Dr. Wily is back to his old tricks again and Mega Man will have to defeat his army of new robot masters and other robotic beings as he tries to save the world once again.

I pretty much intended to do a Mega Man marathon until my computer issues were fixed, which lasted a lot longer than intended. I knew I would be, at the very least, doing the first three games. In this LP though, I did face an issue of music copyright, an issue that forced me to lower the volume tremendously for the Mega Man projects from this one til the end of the series.
