Episode 6, the Mega Man Mega Mix, featuring songs from Mega Man 1 through 6.
Well… guess we won’t be hearing any Megaman for the next 3 or 4 episodes
False! Mega Man and Earthbound in every episode!
I think there’s a very important caveat to saying that Mega Man 9 would not fit on an NES cart; it’s not because the game itself is too big, it’s because it was formatted for modern platforms. For example, the original Mega Man on the NES was 1 megabit or 128 Kilobytes, but how large are the MP3s after you ripped the game’s soundtrack? I’m guessing that most of them are 1-2 MB each, and that’s just the music.
I don’t think I’d heard that Mega Man 3 was unfinished, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense; not just from the bugs or the testing cheats left in the game, and what appears to be missing story and intro cinematic as you say, but also what appear to be 1 or 2 missing battles with Protoman, as well as the fact that he is randomly called “Break Man” at one point (and he seems to have his own missing story elements, not just Wily).
Great show, D. I can’t wait for the next one!
BTW: I don’t think I’ve heard any Gameboy tunes on the show yet…
