Does anyone else feel that X lost his spotlight, after all the series is called Megaman 'X'.

Seriously, the series has a lot of new faces popping out of the ol' Yin Yang. While on the side note, X seems to linger behind Zero, not to mention Axl, who I feel needs to be axed.

Lets see a raise of hands if agreed, X needs his spotlight back.

Ai.

Once X gets back to blasting Mavericks for what they're worth, and cans the whole "violence is not the answer" routine, then he'll be badass again.

He did show more of this attitude during the last game, X8.

I'm sure if they make X9, he should be back to his pre-X7 self again.

If you exclude Mega Man X7, I think that his attitude has been pretty stable overall. Sure, Zero and Axl take a bit of the spotlight, but X still has the focus: many plot elements are centered around him and he's the one receiving all those fancy updates through capsules.

True, very true. I guess I kind of miss on having X as the only playable character.

The funny thing is, X has been the only playable character for two games only! Of course, Zero didn't play a big role in X3, but he was there. Even the two Xtreme games involved Zero somehow.

We need another X1, where you only have X to rely on. That is what made the series so challenging to begin with, a sole protagonist.

Give Zero and Axl a game of thier own, kind of like Cyber Mission or Soul Eraser.

Well, having multiple playable characters makes the game longer if you want to play with all of them. Besides, you can always choose to play only as X in most X games.

Here is an idea, how about X has two different allies besides Zero and Axl, to fight along side with. Signas defenitely fits the bill quite well, who else could be a good fighter along side the two? A character that already exists that is.

How about Shadow, if the plot of the game takes place before Command Mission? He's an already established hunter.

X and Axl (and zero)killed signas after he gave them the mission to the maverick market to get him cofee.


If a game takes place before day of sigma, then sigma,but, considering the capcom cast limited to 3 characters that play in all games... Crapcom of america strikes again...

Does that really surprise you? IIRC, Inafune's original design was for Zero to be the main character.

I don't claim to be surprised at this fact, it's more like I'm amused when people go "X should be the only playable character". Like it or not, the series hasn't taken that direction!

I recently had a thought, X and Signas could be the next heroes. The third, could be a human in reploid enhanced armory. Think about it, Cain is the only human the X series represents. Why have there not been any other humans since.

And I answer, I personally think that humans should make thiere mark on the X series by waging war against Reploids. A great number of them could be against Reploids, while the others could be fighting to save thier planet.

That is why a third playable character should be human.

It is wishful thinking, but I think it could work.

With Nintendo making games like Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, perhaps they should do something similar for the X series. Go back to the basic 2D platformers that were on the SNES, and make new ones for the WiiWare. I honestly doubt that it could/will ever happen, but it's just an idea.

And yes, while having X being the only playable character would be nice, I'm not going to lie and say that Zero is absolutely no fun to play as--X4 was great. As for Axel...meh.

I'd prefer another 3D platformer like X8.

Same here. Some people keep asking for a new SNES-like game, but personally, I found that the X series gained it's momentum during the Playstation era. Ultimately, I see no point of going back: let's move forward and build on what X8 did.

I unfortunately have not played past X4, but from what I can see, X8 looks like a 2D platformer with 3D models, which is excellent. I would certainly not mind another game like that.

Solution for everything: Remake Command Mission but have it be in a 2D Format. Specific levels require specific characters, but X gets most of the screentime.

(IE I miss Spider GUNSLINGING, POKER PLAYING COWBOY REPLOID and wish to see him again)

I think most of the additional characters' would-be abilities could be implemented to X via Armor Parts, all into one character as oppose to having the abilities spread out among several characters, keeping things simple.

Except for the ability to transform like Axl or Spider, or Cinnamon's Force Metal Generator.

Besides, Spider was really just Redips, so...

I would like to see how X's X Fire Hyper Mode would play out in 2D. Grappling claw of death, ftw.

Or the Supra Armor (Ultima Armor) from Command Missions in 2D. It looks like it could fly with infinite energy, plus I want to see how the two weapons would look when firing.

Plus, there might be a chance of other side stories. Cyber Mission and Soul Eraser were cool, and made there marks. I feel that there could be another one, an event that takes place after X4. It could be called Reploid Aftermath. X to start out with, after you beat the game once, you can then choose to play as Zero.

A plot for a third Xtreme game could be put together without too much trouble...

We're now six months after the crash of the Space Colony Eurasia. As the world has been badly damaged by the large debris, efforts are being made to repair vital components of the global infrastructure. To assist with this project, scientists have created detailed computer simulations of several areas as they existed before they were damaged.

Progress was well underway, the simulations being a great reference to the work teams. Unfortunately, mavericks found their way into the computer core and started attacking the data. The Maverick Hunters have been called to counter this new danger. X, Zero! We're counting on you!!

Zero gets all the attention because...

Well, you've seen Zero fanboys right? Pretty terrible stuff.

Inafune is the biggest Zero fanboy ever. Swear to you.

He actually DISALLOWED others working on X4 to do Zero's storyline or design, because Zero is his wittle baby and he doesn't want evul Capcom execs to hurt his Zero-wero no.

And as a result:

"WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOR??!!"

Inafune: "Shh, shh. It's okay Zewo, daddy wuves you."

Seriously, Zero was way better as the no-bullshit guy he was in the SNES games, and more or less in the games after X4.

People argue that Zero may have had the personality of a stump in those games, but hey, he gets the job done (so to speak), which is rightfully so, since he's meant to be a supporting character. If anything, X should be the one to get all of the conflicts, being that he's the main character. Zero should just be there to bail him out once in a while. Zero can still be playable as a character despite this. Heck, they did it with Protoman, and he hardly has any dialogue ever.

I'd like to see an X-series exclusive fighting game.

All the mavericks and hunters.

It's great because they already have their trademark moves.

I really wish they would put the effort they use in street fighter IV for a new megaman game..

I recently had an idea, lets have the new batch of mavericks, focus thier hate on X. Like one boss wants to avenge a fallen comrade, that X defeated. Another boss could be Ex-Maverick Hunter, someone who didn't like X's point of views.

I kind of like the idea of a fighting game. Numerous of mavericks have fighting style, such as Magma Dragoon, Magna Centipede, Splash Warfly to name a few.

Bolt Kraken wanted to avenge the death of Launch Octopus (octopardo).

In fact, that is what helped intrigue the idea.
