I almost wish Mega Man games would stop doing this entirely. Not because it can't be well done. I enjoyed it in Battle Network 2, in Zero 2, and so on. But when the prospects of a sequel are known to be doubtful, I'd prefer we tie up some loose ends so the players can enjoy a little closure just in case. Not do the exact opposite.
We had to wait over a decade to see MegaMan Volnutt get rescued from Elysium and fight the elders (actually, I should probably watch what I say here, since that isn't guaranteed yet). How long do you think we'll wait before we find out Master Thomas' reset plans? Another 6 years? Longer? Never?
