I never like the idea of converting it into 3d in the first place. Oh well. Maby this one will be better? let me think, sequal = reused 3d models + short development time = same thing with a new function.... Conclution: X8 in a nutshell. I don't mind though, as long as they pay more attention to the gameplay... and release it to other consoles, namely GameCube! Not fair *sob*


The world is a flaw in a perfect nothing...

I'm still waiting for X7 on GameCube :P It's still possible, you know: Capcom often does ports to other consoles a few years after the original game came out. Also, Command Mission, which shares about the same graphics as X7, is coming out on both PS2 and GC: that means that the code is probably not too difficult to port.

Why do I think us Europeans are going to get an half arsed conversion about a year after it gets released in America?

Cus it happened with X7. *Sob*
If it's coming out on Game Cube as well (fat chance, Capcom are idiots), then screw waiting for it - i'll just order it and use my Freeloader.

Join the club! :P

I agree with you on companies re-releasing games on different systems. All it takes is time.

Many submissions/requests via email may help too! :P

I say we should go bug Capcom until they release both X7 and X8 on Gamecube! :lol:

I think we would all be happier if they took out the full 3d mode and made it a 3d side scroller. I didnt like the feel of x7 as it was not at all like the previous games. sliding down a wall in 3d mode is very annoying.

I never said that. Final Fantasy is good because Square actually puts TIME into it. Also, its the kind of thing that naturally conforms to the 3d style. Action games like rockman have a feel that doesnt transition over to 3d well at all.

3d side scrollers arent bad at all. I particularly liked the 2d segments in x7. if they made x8 all like that it would be really good. play control was excellent in those parts. Now if only they ported the x4-6 engine to gba, or even x1-3 engine, they would have a REALLY good xtreme 3.

Mega Man Network Transmission, maybe? That game has full 3D graphics, but is a 2D side-scroller as far as the controls are concerned. I think it's control are pretty good, too. Having the same game with 3D controls would have been much worse, in my opinions. Some games just aren't meant to go 3D...

Anyone see the trailer for X8 yet? The artistical style for the game looked different than in X7. The trailer also has several lines of text that appears while the footage of gameplay plays. I'm under the impression it's someone talking to X, my guess Zero. Maybe, that's who I hope it's with at least. :lol:

The trailer has someone saying that Sigma isn't returning, either. That makes me sad.. I like Sigma.

That one makes me feel uneasy. On one hand, Capcom might have done the jump and actually killed Sigma for good. On the other hand, I have some doubts. After all, in the introduction to Mega Man 6, Mr. X says that he doesn't need Dr. Wily's help anymore. We know how that one turned up :P

On another note: I want a GameCube release!!

What ever happened to the pc releases? In my experience, they run faster than the console versions, and play a lot better. I think capcom has lost touch with consoles. X7 for some reason just didnt feel right on PS2. Oh well. I dont really expect a whole lot from X8, considering what ive seen from the screenshots. Ill watch the trailer later, but i think that the cell shading killed the look of X7. I would prefer higher poly models over a cartoon effect. Anyone played Xenosaga Ep1 yet? Why not models of THAT quality? The textures could use a tune up too. But thats just me speaking. I look at these things from a developers point of view. ^_^

I doubt very much what happened to Sigma at the end of X7 was the final nail in the coffin. I'd like to think it would take more than a lil shot in the face from Axl's pea shooter to keep him down.


I liked the 3D parts of MMX7, But if its gonna be a side scroller again, I really wish they would make the game a lil bit more fast paced. That was my only complaint with X7(Okay thats a lie..) Everything moved a lil too slow for me. At this point..

At the very least they could shed some light on what the hell the Wily is up to. Wily actually seems to be playing an active role in X's world.
Knowing Capcom though, That will never be explained, Nor the disappearance of Dr. Cain and Dynamo will be just be a blip on the radar. :rolleyes:

Edit: Sorry Doc...I forget.

I have been told that the essence of being Splash Woman is not in attaining perfection, but in the attempt.

If so, then Splash Woman in general does not qualify as, well, human.

Dr.chaos, remember to mark your spoiler! X7 isn't that old yet, and some people probably haven't played it.

No, those Wily logos in X5 were random static. Gee, ya think? lol

I was very disappointed with the amount of story in X7 and the lack of background revealed in the past few games. I havent gotten through the final stages in x7, but there hasnt been any mention of Zero's origin since X5. Even then, it was one line and a few logos. Not much has been revealed about X throught the whole series. Ive been waiting since i was VERY young for a game that was purely story. Maybe Command Mission will satisfy the lack of plot. I still dont like the look of X8. I preordered X7, and wasnt happy, so it might be a little while after its released before i get it.

There was also your namesake in Megaman 4. Obviously Capcom getting rid of a villain will arise suspicion by now.

I concur with this statement full heartedly. The 3D segments in X7 put gamers into either a love or hate relationship, but I gotta say I found them to be quite fun. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing more 3D stages in X8.

The gameplay needs to be put at at faster rate too, like you said. The sidescrolling elements felt abit clunky.
