It isn’t a secret that Capcom royally screwed up Street Fighter V‘s launch back in February. From minor things such as the servers crapping out every ten minutes and games frequently not connecting, to the complete absence of series staples such as a single player arcade mode, there were plenty of things for fans to get riled up about. A shame really, as the core game was generally up to snuff and more than capable of providing good times.
Four years after recording Mega Man X1, I finally get to Mega Man X2. I like this game a lot, as it’s just a bit more than a standard Mega Man sequel clone. It makes some positive changes without straying to far from what made the original a classic, and for that it deserves to be remembered in its own right. I’ll let the video explain the rest. Enjoy!
