RadarPlays - Mega Man X

The Blue Bomber gets an upgrade in this week's retro RadarPlays

Last week in our Retro RadarPlays we enjoyed some classic Mega Man 2 action, but now we're stepping up to the franchise's 16-bit brother. Released recently on the Wii U's Virtual Console, we dove into the original Mega Man X, and we were pleasantly surprised to see how well it held up. Join Henry, Lorenzo, and Ryan as we take our first steps into the realm of Maverick Hunting.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!
