Megaman X8 Review

As challenging as it is dated, Megaman X8 is an old-school style action game that will please longtime fans of the series but may leave some newer gamers frustrated and wondering what all the hype is about.

Capcom is known for having created many classic video game franchises over the years, but none quite equal the sheer size and scope of their Mega Man games. The popular action-gaming franchise debuted in 1987, and over the past 20 years, there have more than 50 different titles bearing the hero’s name, including a handful of spinoffs that have gone on to spawn subseries in their own right. The first of these was the Megaman X series, a futuristic spin on the series which made its Japanese debut in 1993. The most recent release in this spinoff series, Megaman X8, came out for the Sony PlayStation 2 in 2004, and while some things have changed, this is one game that is clearly worthy of its predecessors in just about every possible way.Gameplay

If you’re a fan of previous Mega Man titles, you know what to expect out of Megaman X8 in terms of gameplay. This is a side-scrolling adventure game that features plenty of running, jumping, dodging and shooting action, and as always, this is a challenging game. It may not be as brutally hard as the old-school 8-bit Mega Man games, and it does feature three selectable difficulty levels as well as customizable controls. Even so, this is one title that will put most gamers to the test and will pose a serious challenge to casual players even on easy.


The game features three main characters, each with different abilities. There’s Mega Man, known as X in the game, who uses a charge shot, as well as Axl, who can fire his weapon in a 360 degree arc and glide in the air for a short period of time, and Zero, who uses a sword for melee based attacks and can double-jump. Following an introductory level in which you control all three at various times, you need to select two characters for each mission. Over the course of the game, they will gain new abilities, and you can also purchase upgrades for them back at their headquarters as well. Furthermore, they can also utilize a powerful double attack move, and each level features multiple routes and another series staple, fun and challenging boss battles.


The Megaman X series as a whole takes place in the 22nd century, as humans and robots named “Reploids” live in peaceful co-existence. Well, for the most part, as every once in a while these Reploids turn rogue and are then branded as Mavericks. X, Axl and Zero are part of a group known as the Maverick Hunters, who work to quell Reploid rebellions and keep the peace. At the start of X8, we learn that people are working to build an elevator into space as part of the “Jakob Project” which is being led by a series of new-type Reploids.

All is well until X and his team come across an old nemesis, a former hunter named Vile who betrayed them earlier in the Megaman X timeline. Vile, as it turns out, has kidnapped Lumine, the Reploid in charge of the Jakob Project, and has vowed that “A new world will be born!” It is up to the Maverick Hunters to find out exactly what Vile is up to and put a stop to it, but as is usually the case in video games, things are not always as cut and dry as they may seem. As the plot progresses, there will be plenty of twists and perhaps some more familiar faces making their returns. The story is mildly interesting, and does a good job of tying the action together, but unless you’re at least somewhat familiar with the previous games in this series, you might feel a little lost at the ballpark.

Graphics and Sound

Considering this game is now more than four years old, I’m going to cut it a little slack, but the graphics and sound quality isn’t all that great, to be honest. You probably won’t notice much in the heat of battle, but the character designs, while large, lack detail. The environments aren’t all that bad, and both the anime cutscenes and the character portraits that appear during conversation are fairly well drawn. The voice acting seems fairly lifeless on the whole, and the music reeks of 1980s stadium rock. All in all, it’s no better than average.

In terms of overall quality, Megaman X8 just barely eeks out a Five-Star ranking from me. Despite what I said about cutting the game slack due to its age, the fact is that this is a very old looking game in terms of presentation. On top of that, it will likely be too hard for many gamers out there, even considering the fact that there are multiple difficulty levels to choose from. That said, if you’re the type of gamer who thrives on challenge, and you enjoy a good old-school style run-and-gun type of action game, this is definitely right up your alley. It is definitely a worthy successor to the Mega Man name, and is worth at least a rental if you still have an Playstation 2.

final rating: 4/5 stars

Retro Video Game Review: Megaman X2


As the first game was a success, Capcom decided to release a sequel to Mega Man X. Similar to the previous game, Mega Man X2 for the SNES plays similar to the classic Mega Man games but with new features added. This time, the game has even more new features to make it more interesting and also uses more the power of the 16-bit console.

The game resumes the story from the last one. Some time after the events of the first game, the Maverick Hunters recieve a threat from a group called the X Hunters. These mavericks claim that they have the body parts of Zero and challenge X to defeat them in order to recover them. At the same time, a maverick outbreak is happening again. So, as X, it’s your job to once again stop this threat from causing destruction around the world.

The game plays and feels pretty much the same as Mega Man X. All the controls feel pretty tight and responsive. The default buttong placements are the same and the button customization is back too. The only difference this time, though, is that you’ll start with the dash right from the start.

The game again places you on an opening stage that’s designed to get you into the action while at the same time teaching you the basics of how the game is played. After this, you’ll meet the classic stage select screen with the eight regular stages and their respective bosses to defeat.

A cool thing of the game is that sometime during the progress of the game, the X-Hunters will decide to challenge you to battle if you want to recover the body parts of Zero. These will be optional extra boss battles that you can choose to tackle or not and will make an important difference later in the game.

The heart and sub tanks also return once more as hidden secrets that you can get. They work exactly the same as before and also are quite useful in your journey. Besides that, the four armor upgrades are also back and this time give you different useful upgrades, like an air-dash.

Another new thing in the game is that this time you can also ride a bike in certain levels. The bike’s control is really basic and provides a good variety to the usual gameplay of the game. The Ride Armor is also back and better as it now has the ability to hover.

Graphically, the game looks good and sharp. The sprites and backgrounds are well made so you can notice details easily. This time, though, Capcom has also used their own chip inside the game to make the game look even better, with certain bosses that are actually made in wireframe 3D and don’t clash with rest of the game’s graphics.

The music of the game is excellent. One or two tracks may not be that good, but the soundtrack will definitely stay in your head. All the music matches the appropiate situation and sets you in the mood for the action of the stages. The sound effects work really well too.

With Mega Man X2, Capcom has made a succesful sequel to the original Mega Man X. The game is highly recommended for everyone and a must have for both Mega Man fans and action game fans.

Resident Evil 6 preview by Chris Vint

It seems that it’s either feast or famine with the Resident Evil games over the years. This will be the 3rd new title in the Resident Evil series with Resident Evil Revelations for the 3DS and the game that some love and some hate – Resident Evil Operation Raccoon city. I personally enjoy this game and do enjoy the nods to Resi 2.

Side tracking aside Resident evil 6 looks absolutely incredible. The first trailer for the game had so many questions with Leon, Chris and at the time an unknown man running around with Sherry Birkin, it posed more questions than answers. Some of these questions were answered but the most fantastic aspect was that the release date was brought forward. Yes in this common time of games being seeming delayed the game is all set for 2nd October 2012.  Thank you Capcom

One aspect of the Resident Evil games that will be a key feature of the new game will be the online co-op.  Resident Evil 5 was one of my favourite co-op games from start to finish. This will have 3 different stages with Leon, Chris and the guy whose identity I don’t want to spoil being in different parts of the world. You can start with whatever character you want first and the stories all intertwine with each other.  Even better than that, you will have a moment where you play 4 player co-op. this could be with your friends playing it or someone else on their Xbox. A very exciting and interesting concept that I believe is a first. Another first in the Resi games is that your character can run and gun! Ammo is short in supply so be cautious!!

The Resident Evil  fans where really spoilt at E3 as Capcom released a 3rd trailer which still kept up the fantastic momentum the game has gathered. Furthermore to this we were treated to 30 mins of gameplay footage, 10 for Chris, 10 for Leon and 10 for the other guy.  This blew me out of the water! Well it was amazing to see the game take shape and I cannot wait to see the demo that comes with Dragons Dogma. I bought this game just for the early access.

After playing the demo, the hype I have had for the game is well founded. All the levels that were shown previously were playable and to me Chris’ campaign seemed to be the most action packed. Don’t get me wrong, Jake’s and Leon’s are still terrific. I cannot wait to see what else awaits and after seeing another character return, opens more doors to the fan frenzy the game will have on release!

People have their FIFA games they look forward to year on year. Call of Duty continues to do well but this is MY game I’ve looked forward to this year. October 2nd cannot come soon enough!  They have announced that the lucky Americans have 2 different editions.

For the 360 you get resident evil 4, 5 gold edition, code Veronica and the degeneration cgi film in Resident Evil Archives

For the lucky ps3 customers you get
Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, Resident Evil 4 HD
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil: Director’s Cut

The PS3 version is Resident Evil anthology and of course both sets include Resident Evil 6. Or you could spend 1000 yen and get the edition with a replica of Leon’s jacket. No I’m not that desperate for it!

I have however pre-ordered the collectors edition which will sting me around £130! This will be money well spent and the only game I will ever shell out this much for is a Resident Evil game.

Head down, pre-order this and have a look at the trailers on the marketplace of your console. This will be one game that won’t disappoint and has been a long time coming. Oh and if you want an online co-op buddy, add Vinto to your Xbox friends list!
