Richard presents: Let's play Mega Man X, Part 11--Sigma Stage 2

The second Sigma stage isn't nearly as difficult as the first, and is actually fairly boring. We've got two more Maverick rematches and a bizarre boss with Rangda Bangda, but other than that there's very little of note. I do go quiet for long stretches of this video as a result, so I apologize for that. Enjoy!

Richard presents: Let's play Mega Man X, Part 10--Sigma Stage 1

With all the Mavericks down, it's time to venture into the last trials of the game. The first Sigma stage is fairly tough, especially since you have to deal with Bospider at the end. We also witness the first gaming event that ever made me cry. Yes, Zero's death gets overused to the point where it never matters (and honestly the story in these games is nothing to brag about to begin with) but when I first played this game it had a definite impact. Enjoy!

Video: Donkey Kong doesn't back down

This explains where Mario got the super human strength that he has possessed since Super Mario 64. We all thought it odd that Mario could all of a sudden pick up a giant monster like King Bowser and toss him around like a sack of mushrooms. That could only result from hours spent in the gyms building his lats and such dedication would only stem from a humiliation like this one.

Video: Super Mario Bros. on the sidewalks of Germany

Artist Andreas Heikaus created this video as part of his Bachelor thesis at University. Combining CG with live-action footage, Heikaus takes the world of Super Mario Bros. and throws it onto the sidewalks of (presumably) Hannover, Germany. You don't have to look very long to see it how clever it is.

Richard presents: Let's play Mega Man X, Part 3

For the final three Mavericks, we come across two bosses that are not nearly as difficult as their reputation suggests, and my favorite song in the game. Don't fret though, you'll get to see all the Mavericks one more time in the Sigma stages. After that, no more Mavericks. At least until Mega Man X2.

Enjoy!

Video: Mega Man made better with the Portal Gun

Apparently everything is better with a Portal Gun.

Video: Angry birds and pigs bond over Seal

Now I really hate Angry Birds!

Richard presents: Let's play Mega Man X, Part 2

The next three videos take us into the wild worlds of Flame Mammoth, Sting Chameleon, and Spark Mandrill. Sting Chameleon gave me quite a bit of trouble, but Spark Mandrill was actually a lot easier than I remembered him. In fact, as a whole Mega Man X isn't all that difficult aside from a few painful spots. Enjoy!

Video: Is cosplay better in slow-motion?

This footage is courtesy of Angel James de Ocampo, cosplay cinematographer and conventioneer and was filmed at Japan Expo 2011 in Paris, France. Nice camera work. The biggest achievement has to be making people dressed as video game characters and walking around with plastic or paper weapons look cool while doing so. Well, maybe they can work on their fighting choreography though.

Richard presents: Let's play Mega Man X

The recent cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 has gotten me thinking about all the wonderful gaming memories I've had with the blue bomber. As opposed to a long-winded blog post, I decided to share some of these experiences with the general Internet population. Thus, I present for the enjoyment of the masses, a let's play of Mega Man X, starring yours truly.
