Video: EVERY 8-bit Mega Man boss level!

Today, Mega Man 10 is finally available across all three major platforms. It hit WiiWare first, then PSN and now it’s officially part of Xbox Live Arcade. MM10 continues the retro look and spirit of MM9, which was in turn an homage to the NES classics that millions of gamers gushed over throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s.

What better way to celebrate this occasion than with a video that runs Mega Man through every single boss level from every 8-bit game?

 

We omitted 7 and 8 because they’re weirdo games that don’t fit the style (and they wouldn’t synch up as well, derp), and we also left out the Wily levels, as they’re never really part of the true Mega Man experience. Which is figuring out which bosses to beat in which order, by the way.

 

Contest!

Be the first person to correctly name every boss level in the order they appear and we’ll award you with a FREE PSN Mega Man 10 download code! Submit your entries in the forums here, and be sure to check the lovely list of rules.

    PSN is better than Live. Especially for a game like MegaMan 10. Who would really want to use that shitty xbox d-pad? Ugh.

    I am a platform-agnostic gamer, and even I must agree that MM10 is best played on Wii, then PS3, then 360. That d-pad is garbage! I had to review all three versions of MM9 and 360 was by far the roughest. It's not a horrible experience by any means, it's just not suited for a precise 2D platformer.

    Exquisite video. Awesomality!

    I'm glad you agree with me, TrollMan, but no childish name-calling! I own all consoles and certain games work for certain consoles better. No way around it, really.

    WE HAVE WINRAR. Ravenbom was the first to PM me with the correct list. He's presently getting his ass stomped in Mega Man 10.

    Dammit! Ah... I would have had to give it to a friend anyways because I don't have a PS3... grats Ravenbom!

    i didnt even know about this contest and their is already a winner
  • Patius - April 1, 2010 4:33 a.m.

    I disagree. Fighting through a fortress, then thinking, "This is the last level, I'm finally about to win." and then suddenly you find yourself fighting metal man again. That "Fight all the normal bosses again" part is also part of Mega Man.

    I wish I read this earlier today... I named all of them as the video played (not even kidding). I probably could've won too...
  • philipshaw - April 1, 2010 10:34 a.m.

    That was pretty cool, might pick up Mega Man 10 on PSN when I get my PSN gift card for my birthday
  • lovinmyps3 - April 1, 2010 11:34 p.m.

  • ScruffMoney - April 2, 2010 8:02 p.m.

    Am I the only one that really hate the 8 bit Mega Man ass, Mega Man games? I'm not sure what it is about them but I just can't stand them.
  • twishart - April 3, 2010 11:05 p.m.

    This is beautiful, I love that this worked.
