Meanwhile in the fortress of evil...
Shit's about to get real, yo.
Yes, well, the yellow devil was DEFINITELY going to be the first boss if it was a boss, and it DEFINITELY wasnt, so there is DEFINITELY no chance it is coming very soon!
what evil twisted things could he be thinking
Harold: that I want a cheeseburger.
Watch the next boss be a buebeem.
And at that every moment, Harold used his evil satanic powers of douchebagery to create a boss battle so difficult, so evil, so annoyingly cheap, that God wept in sorrow for the poor souls that would be unfortunate to fight him.
May the gods of video games be with you, Djoing, Mad, and Alienoid.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: PURPLE DEVIL!!
@hedge the hog: WHITE DEVIL
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: RAINBOW DEVIL!
@ShinyHoundoom229: I think that was actually a thing. Maybe it was Mega Man X or Mega Man Zero?
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: No....the worst devil of all.............
THE INTERNET DEVIL!
@hippo986: Internet is not a colour. FAILURE.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: I checked, and it is. It's a boss in MMXZ I & II. There's also Green Devil, Grey Devil, Dark Moon, New Super Devil, Twin Devil, Block Devil, Shadow Devil, and Lava Devil.
Gee, Capcom must really love devils. Either that or Harold has had his hand in more MM games than I thought.
@ShinyHoundoom229 you forgot the petit devil.
@negaman1020: How could I forget about the Petit Devil?!
I am a disgrace to Megaman fans everywhere! *commits seppuku*
I hate Devils, principaly one in particular...
@ShinyHoundoom229: if I'm honest though... The Rainbow Devil is a bit of a pushover, really. It doesn't really do splitting and moving, and while it can split, just into 4-6 small blobs that just move along the floor back to the core, which is pretty much ALWAYS vulernable. I remember it giving a fair handy ability in MMZ2 though.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Internet is a color. Internet is everything.
@shadow and hippo
There is only one devil we forgot.
He is the most powerful devil there is.
His name is…what I'm bout tell you… rrrrrriiigggghhhhhtttttt nnnnnnnnnoooooo(shot'd)
Good thing that happened I didn't know what his name was. Wait? I FORGOT TO PRESS SUBMIT! NNNNOOO(shot'd again)
@hippo986: We are the Internet. Resistance is futile. Surrender now and be assimi- *SOPA'd*
HEY THERE, BUDDY! YOU'RE MY BESTEST FRIEND!
I think Harold is officially my favorite character now.
Oh, I also feel I should kinda point something out... these games were MEANT to be this hard. Back in the days of the NES, they didn't have the memory on the cartridges to make games really long like nowadays. So they made the games hard so they would last longer. There is even a term for it, 'Nintendo Hard'.
Yeah, it's kinda cheap to make a game longer by making it hard, but eh, you work with what you're given. Besides, it just makes it all the better when you finally beat it.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: There was even more to it. Originally, games were arcade machines running on pennies. During that era, difficulty was good for business. When games reached home consoles, it took some time to evolve beyond that philosophy.
@The_mad_one: that is true, but my point still stands that to increase the amount of time spent beating the game made the game seem longer. Super Mario Bros, for example, if done correctly, can be beaten in under half an hour. My first time playing it was when I was 10 on the "deluxe" version for the Gameboy Colour. It took me two weeks and countless continues. It was just a way of making the game longer, and started becoming less popular when the SNES and Mega Drive came out, since they could make the games longer. With Arcade machines though, you are right, it was all about money.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Yeah I wasn't contradicting you, just adding to what you said. :3
PS: If these games were meant to be hard, they sure screwed up with the bosses featured in this page~.
@The_mad_one: I know. :3
