nope. But as with most rhythm games, easy to navigate with a quick menu translation guide. Plus too much happening on the screen for me to actually read the lyrics. :lol:

But biggest win is getting the entire thing for 25 on disc.


Good deal. I had to have the limited edition of this though. Picked up the import with the blurays and preorder bonus earlier this year ... Love it!

I'm not completely sure. It was playing on the screen, but I don't know if the controls worked

For anyone that cares my long coming Magical Marriage Lunatics review is likely coming this week. I only have about 2 routes to go. Pretty good sized game, that I took a break from playing, but am just about done.

Yeah, sure, I could use another 3DS system. I mean, 12 is clearly not enough... At least I didn't have a New 2DS XL yet. That makes it 'slightly' less absurd.

LOL, I'm eyeballing that unit myself. The 2DS XL is really well made, as it offers good size screens, with a much lighter weight and better ergonomics than the standard XL models. I've been wanting to get one for the bigger screens, but haven't liked the themes of the others offered. This is for sure the best one so far, for me at least, so I might place a preorder, but I really don't need the game included, so I may just grab the standard white unit, as those are $130 at Walmart right now.

Mega Man 11 looks cool, I'm stoked.   The one thing I'm struggling with is whether to buy these games like the new X Legacy Collection, and the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on either Nintendo or Playstation.  But I'm leaning towards the latter.

X collection I will definitely do on PS since half of it is digital on Switch. Not decided on Street Fighter.

Will hold off on buying Megaman X Collection. The games usually go on clearance by the end of the year around Black Friday and I"m not in a big rush to play it. :lol:

Megaman 11 Amiibo Edition says "Only at Gamestop", does this mean the amiibo is exclusive to GS? Or does it mean this kind of bundle(stickers and all) is what is exclusive? I just care about the game and amiibo and not the stickers

Got my copy of Fallen Legion in the mail today. Is there one story I should play before the other?

I realize it's the same story from two different sides, but there's usually one that is better/more enjoyable to play first.

I went with SF Anniversary Collection on Switch (it is supposed to contain an extra exclusive play mode) and will get MegaMan X Legacy Collection on PS4 since it is two discs and the Switch version is half digital (which kind of defeats the purpose of a physical release).
