#GamingBucketList: Mega Man Xtreme/Rockman X: Cyber Mission (GB/GBC)

Mega Man X finds himself somewhere very familiar to him. A place called Central Highway. Not knowing the how or why he finds himself back where his fight for justice began is he works his way down Central Highway again to then run into a ghost of his past, Vile. Confused even further he destroys Vile once more and then suddenly finds himself back in front of the Mother Computer at Hunter Base and this is where his 3rd adventure begins!

Welcome to Mega Man Xtreme or Rockman X: Cyber Mission which is the 1st of 2 interquel games for the Mega Man X series. Where we are currently in X's fight against Sigma is that X & Zero have taken out Sigma for the 2nd time and during this peace the Mother Computer of Hunter Base has been hacked and is "reproducing fighting data of the past." Zero always 2 steps ahead of the game acquires the help of Middy who just happens to be the world's greatest computer genius. Middy's plan is to digitize X to infiltrate the Mother Computer and take out the digitized ghosts of X's previous battles and stop whoever's behind all of this.

This is where we come in. The world needs saving and we're tasked with the job and we can get it done. With some hard work and some X-Buster shots and peace will be restored in no time at all.

Once we get into the Mother Computer we're greeted by 4 familiar faces. Chill Penguin, Spark Mandrill, Storm Eagle & Flame Stag. In order to get deeper into the Mother Computer we've got to take out those digitized ghost Mavericks. Now history would dictate we'd take out Chill Penguin as it is customary to do to get the Leg Part but if you wish to save a bit of time, some backtracking and get the Body Armor part first then I'd suggest taking out Flame Stag first.

Now I will admit you're putting yourself at a slight disadvantage by doing this first because of how the Leg Armor part works in this game but some careful wall jumps will get you through the tough part and the Heart Tank early. The other thing I will point out here is because this game does take place between X2 & X3 is there's a hidden boss located in the same place where the X-Hunter door was in X2. As far as I know there's nothing special you get for taking this boss out but know if you came here after beating Chill Penguin is that this boss is very weak to the Shotgun Ice but charged X-Buster shots do the job just as well. In this same section the Body Armor part is hidden here as well so be sure to pick it up if you can find it.

Flame Stag is no joke but if you stick to a wall and hit him with charged X-Buster shots then he'll go down in no time at all. Know that he's also weak to the Storm Tornado so if you have that in tow then be sure to fan the flames of justice. You'll pick up the Speed Burner for your victory here.

The reason I suggest taking on Chill Penguin 2nd is not only for being able to get the Heart Tank which is located in the same place where it was in X1 but Icy Penguigo is a bit tougher to deal with because the arena isn't as big but having the Body Armor part and the Speed Burner will keep the advantage on your side and that's what we want. Your defeat of Chill Penguin will get you the Shotgun Ice.

We're paying Storm Eagle and the Heliport a visit next. The Heart & Sub Tank have switched places since our last visit to the heliport however the Helmet Part is in the same exact place so pick all 3 of them up on your way to Storm Eagle.

Storm Eagle as well is the same old dance. Enough charged X-Buster shots will again even in Cyber Space will send the Swordfish Base crashing into the digital ground. You'll pick up the Storm Tornado for your victory here.

All that's left is to take out Spark Mandrill. The Heart & Sub Tank are both located in the same place as they were in X1 which seems to be a running theme in this game. However, you can also find the Arm Parts in the 2nd dark section if you have the Helmet so be looking toward the ceiling for some blocks to break. Spark Mandrill is again weak to the Shotgun Ice so use that to take him out in no time. For some fun used the charged version to create the Ice Sled during for hilarious results! For your victory here you'll acquire the Electric Spark.

With all 4 bosses defeated is the protection for the Mother Computer's core is down so X heads deeper to attack the core head on!

The core is of course represented by Sigma Fortress stages from the 1st 2 X games.

Sigma Fortress 1 is the 1st fortress stage from X1 except instead of Vile as the 1st boss of the stage you'll be introduced to Zain if you haven't introduced yourselves previously. Zain is real easy to take out if you know his pattern. He'll do 3 jumping slashes and with each one you need to dash behind him and either the Shotgun Ice of a fully charged X-Buster shot. His 4th jumping slash will be a bit lower and he'll spin around after it. In this version of the battle is he actually moves across the screen during the spin so be careful. He'll fall in no time at all and the rest of the stage should be familiar even with the rematch with Bospider. Use the charged Shotgun Ice on it and as soon as you hit it pause and switch to another weapon and quickly back to the Shotgun Ice so you can have another one ready to go when it comes down for the next volley. Keep this up and the fight's over in no time at all.

Sigma Fortress 2 is the 3rd fortress stage from X2. One thing that's still here if you can find it is the Shotokan Capsule which in this games gives you both the X1 Hadoken & X2 Shoryuken for finding it. Both moves aren't as overpowered as their console counterparts but they do more overall damage than a fully charged Level 4 X-Buster shot so try to get used to doing both moves and doing them in lieu of firing off that charged X-Buster shot.

Instead of facing off against Agile's 2nd form, you'll be facing off with Serges' 2nd form instead. You'll be dispatching of him the same way you did in X2 including his weakness to the Speed Burner. Enough of those he as well will be digitized dust.

Sigma Fortress 3 is the Digitized Zombie Boss Rematches so dispose of the bosses just as you have before and afterward you'll find out that as usual Sigma's behind the madness so time to take him out. Just stay to the top of the wall and wait until he's right below you and as he moves to the next wall hit him with Level 4 X-Buster Shots, the Electric Spark or Speed Burner and just repeat this until he's dead.

As it was in X1 is Sigma will transform into his Wolf Sigma form and the final battle begins. Here's the thing though, in your current arsenal you don't have a weapon weakness but you do have acid in those lemons X shoots so shoot those. Wolf Sigma doesn't have invincibility frames so you can just let loose with X-Buster shots until this is wrap. Also, If you've been listening real close then you may have the power of the Shotokan and a couple of Hadokens or Shoryukens will swiftly bring this battle to a close.

With the defeat of Sigma, the sanctity of the Mother Computer has been restored and peace alongside it is X & Zero have a calming moment as they ready themselves for the next threat to the world...

Or you'd like to think so anyway because this fight is far from over!

After the credits you're given the option to save your game to carry it over to the Hard Mode of the game and I definitely suggest taking the option for reasons I'll soon explain.

Reloading the save you just made puts you back on Central Highway but with all of the boss weapons and anything else you picked up during Normal Mode. Even though you have the boss weapons is Vile is still going to take more damage from the X-Buster so stick to that.

Having a bit of Déjà vu is X once again finds himself in front of the Mother Computer because the same thing we just dealt with is happening again except we now have 4 new but familiar faces to deal with in order to get past the protection to the Mother Computer's core which are Wheel Gator, Magna Centipede, Armored Armadillo & Morph Moth.

Because we loaded that save is you have 2 weaknesses off the bat for either Armored Armadillo or Morph Moth. So because of how the charged Rolling Shield is super broken here I suggest taking out Armored Armadillo first.

Back to the Energy Mine Ruins again and just as with previous stages both the Heart & Sub Tank are in the same locations as they were in X1 but also where the Hadoken was once hidden there's something new there instead...the Zero Scramble Program. Think of these like assist calls that are very damaging if you use them correctly. Every stage in Hard Mode has a Zero Scramble Program to be found if in Normal Mode you found a certain armor part which in this case is the Helmet which you'll get if you either didn't have it on a previous save or started a game straight from Hard Mode. The one here is the first of 4, Dash. Zero just appears and slashes anything in his way on the ground. Zero will dash in whatever direction X is facing so be sure you're positioned right or you'll waste valuable energy otherwise. Also know calling upon Zero uses a meter you can't fill normally so be cautious in your use of these programs.

You'll soon meet up with Armored Armadillo and he's quite a bit harder here than he was in either X1 or Maverick Hunter X because without the Electric Spark this battle can go for a long time so be careful in your use of the weapon to take him out. Also know that he can actually block Electric Spark shots until the game just decides to let him get electrocuted which destroys his armor and if his armor isn't destroyed is he can absorb the energy of charged X-Buster shots and send the energy back so be careful of that as well. Even given all this you'll be able to take him down and get the Rolling Shield for your victory.

Like I mentioned earlier the charged version is broken because not only does the shield last as long as you don't collide with an enemy that would go down with more than one Rolling Shield is that it can also stand up to Mets, can stand in lava without being instantly killed and stand & walk on spikes but you can't wall jump spike walls however. Being broken always has its limits! This is the new and improved Chameleon Sting for the most part so take advantage of having this as part of your arsenal.

Wheel Gator's next and where the Dual Buster in X2 once was is now occupied by Zero Scramble Program: Rising or you'll get the Arm Parts if you didn't have it already. Rising calls Zero out to do a Rising Slash so again be sure to be positioned correctly so you aren't wasting energy. The Heart Tank is in the same place as well and you can either used a charged Speed Burner or Rolling Shield to just hop to where it is.There's also a hidden boss fight in this stage as well and its located in the same place where the X-Hunter door was in X2. This hidden boss is weak to the Speed Burner so let it loose and this will be over in no time.

Wheel Gator in my view is a bit harder because he stays invulnerable to shots for most of the fight and even if you had the Magnet Mine it doesn't do that much damage so if you have the Hadoken & Shoryuken then just use those because they do more damage and when that's done you'll get the Spin Wheel for your victory here.

Morph Moth is next and the Heart Tank and Capsule are located in the same place as in X2 except you can jump right to the Heart Tank and there's a 1UP there as well. Use the Spin Wheel to find the 3rd Zero Scramble Program or the Body Armor parts if you didn't yet for Zero Scramble Program: Earth Gaizer. Zero comes out and punches the ground and it does damage to all enemies on screen. A very powerful attack so again be careful in using it.

Morph Moth is the same fight in X2 as it is here but he has an additional weakness to the Rolling Shield which leads me to believe at some point Morph Moth and Flame Stag were switched given the weakness and how you can get the Body Armor part here if you didn't have it already. Just use the charged Speed Burner or Rolling Shields to take him down in no time. You'll get the Silk Shot for your victory here.

Taking out the final protection lies in taking out Magna Centipede. The Heart & Sub Tank are in the same places as they were in X2 so grab them both. The 4th Zero Scramble Program, Final or the Leg Parts if you didn't have them already are located in the falling block section so be looking to the ceiling for some blocks to break with your helmet and break them and get it. Final summons Zero and he does a combination of Dash and Rising for massive damage to whatever it hits. Be sure to use it on bosses for some fun times.

Magna Centipede's the same boss fight from X2 so be sure to take advantage of his weakness to the Silk Shot so you don't have to deal with those attacks that use his tail. Taking him down will net you the Magnet Mine.

With these 4 protections down once again is we're headed to digitized Sigma's fortress for more of the same except for the following changes and new stuff to be aware of.

In Sigma Fortress 1 your mid-boss fight with Zain has been replaced by Geemel and if you didn't fight him in Wheel Gator's stage this will be your first meeting. The fight mainly has Geemel throwing shurikens in which you'll counter with Speed Burner shots and halfway through the battle he'll disappear and start gliding on his ninja kite and you'll still be shooting him with the Speed Burner until he goes down.

Also for note, now that you have the Magnet Mine as a part of your arsenal know that it is Bospider's alternate weakness and a charged Magnet Mine is just a bit better than a charged Shotgun Ice so use that instead.

Sigma Fortress 2 hasn't changed at all other than Serges' additional weakness to the Rolling Shield. So either it or the Speed Burner will bring this battle to a swift end.

Sigma Fortress 3 is Digitized Zombie Boss Rematches for the Hard Mode bosses and Sigma again afterward so dispatch of them however you see fit.

You'll take on Wolf Sigma again in the finale and it's the same boss fight except now you have both  of his weapon weaknesses in the Rolling Shield as it was in X1 and the Spin Wheel as well. Do whatever you wish to take out Sigma "once and for all" and put an end to this for now.

After the credits you'll now have access to Xtreme Mode which makes the game function like regular X games by having all 8 Mavericks available from the start. Here's what you should know about Xtreme Mode.

The Armor Capsules are located in the 4 Normal Mode Maverick Stages and the 4 Zero Scramble Programs are located in the 4 Hard Mode Maverick Stages.

Storm Eagle is weak to the Spin Wheel if you were wondering what his weakness was and if you use a charged Spin Wheel is you may be able to figure out why that actually is the case.

Other than these changes everything is mostly the same outside some enemy placement and additional attacks from bosses as well. The same could be said for Hard Mode but you really don't get a taste of that until the end of it anyway.

Use all you know to formulate the best way through Xtreme Mode! You can do it! I know you can! Simply because I'm just that damn good at what I do!

Some other things of note.

Know this game is very accommodating given its portable nature. The game gives you options for Auto Charge and Rapid Fire and you should be sure to take advantage of having both options at your disposal.

There's a Simple Type Button Configuration that lets you use the Start Button as an alternate Dash command. Down + A which is the Classic Series Slide command also works but has the downside of not being able to do a Dash Jump from it so I wouldn't use it over pressing →→ or pressing the Start Button however just know it's there though.

Take advantage of the Autosave feature. Once after you lose all of your lives is you can reset the game and reload the last autosave to go back to the last checkpoint you made it to so please abuse this! You can only do this once so keep that in mind.

Best of luck on your Cyber Mission! Bring peace back to the world X & Zero!

The reason that this GBL is even here is because you'll be seeing this and its sequel on #RunDatReXXX really soon as we prepare to get back into the X Series proper with X4! A GBL on Xtreme 2 is coming soon so be watching for it!

So you know what to do now and I'm going to let you do just that!

Until next time!

#TheCool: Shinobi Shuffle the 1st: Eye of the Based G.O.D!

#TheCool's in the building and as always ready, willing & able to put last week in perspective so you get a jump start on this week in which we'll put into perspective next week! The cycle of infinite justice!

As usual, #DoaGHThaDOJO's always has the best crack on in the land and we're always serving 25/8/367! So here's what's on deck for you right now!

Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, Koihime Embusen, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Fighting Layer, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code, Blade Arcus from Shining, Persona 4 The Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold, Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm & The King of Fighters XI!

Fiends Served! This Week In Everything, show them what's really good!

From the man who brought you Sonic the Hedgehog & NiGHTS into Dreams! Coming soon to MURICA! Rodea: The Sky Soldier! I remember when I heard about this game and I was excited for it and then it got canceled. Then I saw that it finally came out in Japan on the WiiU and that was a surprise to me and I'm glad NISA is getting behind this game and getting this to everyone. Can't wait to get my hands on this later this year.

Danganrompa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is also coming to MURICA soon and this game bridges the gap between the 1st 2 Danganrompa games and it's something way different than what the games normally provide. This just as well is on my radar and you can never have enough Danganrompa!

Already out in your hood is Dead or Alive 5: Last Round! If you have the 360 version of Ultimate then you should err on the side of caution of updating to Last Round because of reports of people losing their save data. All you need to know about that issue and everything with the move to Last Round is answered HERE!

Aganos is soon coming to Killer Instinct and the character will be available to those who bought the Ultra Combo Pack on the 27th and for everybody else on March 5th.

An additional modifier for DmC: Definitive Edition is Turbo Mode where everything is 20% faster so if you're looking for a new way to switch up your experience then give it a go. And yes, making a Rainbow Dash reference is way too easy so just know I was considering it because I consider things like that.

P4D soon comes and the lovely Risette shows exactly what an idol can do on the dance floor. P4D drops in GLORIOUS NIPPON 2 days before #DayoftheBasedGod!

A new trailer for Pokkén Tournament has appeared and nothing new to show off but damn does this game look awesome. I can't wait to start to watch this game form and evolve when it drops later this year. Going to be a treat!

Coming soon to 3DS by way of Arc Systems Works is the next DBZ Butōden game called Super Extreme Butōden. We don't know much about it at the moment but Ultimate Butōden on DS was an awesome entry and this is shaping up to be just that and then some. When more information becomes available then I'll be putting you up on it! Shouts to ShonenGames for the translated scan and click the picture to be linked to their article and all their other stuff as well!

What Did I Get Into This Week?

Pokemon Shuffle has taken over my life! I'd never thought I'd be one to get roped in by a F2P Match-3 but here we are talking about how I've been roped in by a F2P Match-3. I don't know what it is about Pokemon Shuffle but I just can't stop playing it. I know plenty of folks on the Candy Crush Saga boat and wondered how a game like that could rope people in and be the juggernaut that it is and now I know how. I haven't played Pokémon with any fervor since G/S/C but there's just something fun about a good pick up and play puzzle game. It's not like this is a single circumstance though. Before I did everything there was to do in HuniePop its hybrid of Dating Sim X Match-3 had me in its clutches during that time as well. The game's fun, I'm having fun and as long as that fun doesn't lead into spending cash then I should be alright.

I also played Mega Man Xtreme for the first time this weekend and for being just like the other GameBoy Mega Man games it does the service of being a good Mega Man X game. I have a feeling we'll be discussing more on the subject sooner than you think.

I got a chance to take the beta of KOF 2002UM for a spin and I can confirm that the balance is as up to date as the latest NESiCA X Live version so just like 98UM it is THE version of the game. The game drops on the 27th on Steam and if you pre-order you can get the game 20% off for $11.99! So if you're interested then click THIS and you'll be all set for later this week!

The torch of Sentai has once again been passed from ToQGer to Ninninger and this show has the makings of being another one of those that we look at when its over and we'll want more of it. The swag is all over the place and I'm feeling the heavy Japanese vibe that Shikenger leaned into given its premise as well. I do also enjoy the family affair vibe too and we haven't seen it done like this since Magiranger even though Goseiger had 2 sets of siblings on the team. This is going to be a good one so get your swords and shurikens ready because its time for the Next-Gen Ninjas to take the stage!

Shout out to Black Sails because nobody saw that swerve coming at all! Some of the best TV I've seen in quite a while!

WWE Fast Lane has sped by us and we know now that Roman Reigns is going to face Brock Lesnar at Mania where Reigns will win and the Seth Rollins will cash in right after and they'll start the feud that should've been over a long time ago. Still a damn shame that Dean Ambrose is on the outside looking in on this. Mr. Outta Nowhere, Randy Orton's back and he'll be feuding with Seth until he cashes in at Mania. Cena lost so that means he'll be beating Rusev for no damn reason at Mania but maybe he'll bring back the Spinner US Title. Bray Wyatt made it quite clear he wants to absorb The Undertaker's power but who knows if Taker's even ready to go at Mania. Other stuff happened but it matters not however.

The usual suspects delivered the goods as they always do and their work in continuing to keep me entertained as applauded and appreciated! Thank You!

And in our "Is Dino Charge Sucking Moment?" I can confirm the answer is...NO! Tune in next week for another update to see if "Is Dino Charge Sucking!?"

Time to bring another one to its inevitable conclusion!

What I Watched On The Internet This Week I leave the conclusion in your capable hands as I always do!

40 years in the game is a feat and Saturday Night Live has reached it! Enjoy one of my favorite skits from the special...Celebrity Jeopardy!

Congrats to Dan Ryckert for taking out one of video game's most notorious final bosses...Mike Tyson! Maybe one day when Nintendo quits tripping on this YouTube shit maybe I can share the story about my first time too!

And GeminiLaser's Mega Man 7 playthrough has come to an end. A great and educational watch if you were ever curious about the game!

Botchamania 267!

LittleKuriboh's The Mark Remark is killing shit! Funny satire is funny satire so if you're looking for some really funny in your WWE recaps then give The Mark Remark a shot!

Shouts to The YouTube Pooper for this playlist of some awesome WWE Poops. Just pure nonsense! The best kind mind you!

That shall be that!

Shouts to the folks at ShyKidzStudios for this Jessie & Flannery art which is our cover this week. If you wish to see more then click the pic to be linked to DeviantArt where the pic came from or hit them up on Tumblr (18+/NSFW) or their Patreon because everybody has one!

Service to the fiends, done and done. This Week In Everything, time to shine!

Dissidia's back! As an arcade game! Now with 3 on 3 combat which looks to iterate on Duodecim's assist system but more leaning into the Gundam way of doing things as is the way currently. The only thing of note here is Y'shtola from XIV is part of the cast now but all we did see were Cosmos characters but given how Duodecim was with the alliance of certain characters is anything is possible. We don't know if this game is canon and if it is what war this is. Depending on what the situation is when this drops is that #DoaGHThaDOJO will be giving this game some shine when the game drops.

Shouts to 4Gamer for this look at Lucky Chloe & Shaheen in Tekken 7 and its still a game time decision of whether or not #DoaGHThaDOJO will be covering the game given previous history so just stay tuned and see.

The Final Round is this week for everybody but PS3 gamers in which you'll be able to get it on the 24th. Steam version is still March 30th. So for now please enjoy a combo exhibition for Honoka & Raidou and a look at the Soft Engine for the current generation systems.

Speaking of the 24th is Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late releases on that day as well so be sure to keep it on your radar.

If you wanted a look at Vergil in the Bloody Palace in DmC: Definitive Edition in SIXTY VERGILS PER SECOND vision then this video provides that service!

Shouts to Famitsu for this look at the PS4 version of Senran Kagura Estival Versus. Life & Hometown comes to PSQUADRUPLE & Vita on March 26th!

Been a minute but #TheHustle's back with an open trunk full of those deals! So what's inside though?

PSN has 2 sales of note with their weekend Valentine's Day Flash Sale and there are some deals of note but I'll highlight a couple that I'd suggest you check out!

Monster Monpiece for $9

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Complete Edition for $6

The Jackbox Party Pack for $10

Mercenary Kings for $6

Hard Corps Uprising for $6

There's also a SNK Sale as well until the 17th and to be honest the only thing I'd even suggest you think about getting is NeoGeo Heroes: Ultimate Shooting for $9.99. Everything else that's on sale can be gotten better elsewhere. Maybe take a look at The King of Fighters '95 & '96 for $4.49 a piece if you're looking for a legitimate way to play either game online if that's what you're into.

Also Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack is $0.47 on Steam as well if you want an OG feeling RPG in your library then give at go.

#TheHustle is proudly brought to you by Team GRF and People Like Us! Thank You!

What Did I Get Into This Week?

I got in the lab with game I won't name at because I want that research to be a surprise whenever it drops. It felt good though to just turn of the computer for a while and just be focused at the task at hand. Felt really good.

I got back to playing Senran Kagura Burst after finally watching Ninja Flash and it does a great job at adapting the story of Burst and fleshing out the characters more and that I like. I do wonder if Deep Crimson will get an adaptation as well?

ToQGer has made its final stop and the finale albeit a bit weak given the great lead up to it gave closure to things and the V-Cinema & vs Kyoryuger should be great watches whenever those get subbed. Ninninger's next and given previous history is the "every other year being a beastly show" is that this show has the opportunity to deliver the goods. We shall see if the hypothesis holds water.

With Batman vs Robin coming soon is I finally watched Son of Batman and it does a great job of being an abridged version of that story and when these movies drop that's all you can really ask for.

In our "Is Dino Charge Sucking Moment?" is I can confirm the answer is...NO! Tune in next week for another update to see if Is Dino Charge Sucking?

The usual suspects are delivering the goods with everybody doing what they do by delivering the goods! Tune in next week to see if the usual suspects are delivering the goods.

Time to bring this to a close! What I Watched On YouTube, please complete your assigned task!

Giant Bomb teaches Tetris Battle Gaiden!

The history of Castlevania after SotN brought to you by Splash Wave!

Josh Keaton's back for Episode 3 of Spectacular Spider Memes!

Botchamania 265, 266 & CZWaMania!

Shouts to a-Cho for this Street Fighter EX2 Plus crack! I gotta serve you the goodness even if I'm not your supplier!

We say goodbye to ToQGer with an 8-bit rendition of the theme by Studio Meganne! Plenty of other themes done in the style as well so be sure to check them all out!

That shall be that for now!

We say our final farewells as the ToQGer train continues down the track with the Next-Gen ninjas taking up the mantle of hero! We'll see about that next time. Thanks to はじめ for this awesome cast picture of the ToQGer crew and here's to the future! Be sure to click the picture if you want to see more like it!

Co-billing the cover this week is best waifu Kyu with the reminder that the new Valentine's Day update for HuniePop is in the streets right now and you can go to HuniePop.com and buy it from there for the fact that this is where the developer gets the biggest cut of the sale so just do that. Shouts to nasoyon for this awesome Kyu pic and be sure to click this picture to get linked to the Tumblr in which it came from or see more on Pixiv or DeviantArt!

Don't forget if you need help bedding the ladies is that I reviewed it and explained it all right HERE so take a look if you're having some trouble. Given the changes the update made I may have to update it and if such an action takes place then I'll let everybody know!

As usual, thanks for coming through and kicking it for a bit! We always love to have you so be sure to see us next time where we do this again!

What Did I Get Into This Week?

PSP maintenance took up most of my weekend and I have stock of knowing that 5.00 M33-6 is still THE firmware if you wish to use RemoteJoyLite in a sensible way. I may actually do something with this knowledge I've gained from the experience.

There was also some Fate/Unlimited Codes & Bloody Roar 2 being played for future project research.

I did play another game for project research and I recently talked about the game in question so if things go well and it all falls into place then it could be on the short list of what's next. Stay tuned for that.

Empire is that show! I remember seeing the commercial before it came out and was like I might take a look at it and then I forgot all about it until J shot the reminder to me and I got caught up really quick and was glad I did. The show just works. Everything feeds into each other. The show uses THE DRAMA to fuel the true star, THE MUSIC in which THE DRAMA surrounds itself around and feeds off of and it just creates a working cycle which has produced one the most successful broadcast show in years. The cast is on point and they make the drama believable and seeing who's already on and who's coming can only mean bigger and better for this show. In short, if you aren't entwined in the Lyon family drama then its time to get on board!

The usual suspects showed up like they always do with Arrow & Banshee taking the We Clowning Crowns this week!

Special shouts to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because it did a thing that I was kind of expecting it to do but I didn't see it coming until it was happening and seeing that the cues for it to happen were there the whole time just shows how much those behind the show actually care about the lore. New demand...WayForward remakes Turtles IV! I was eating something and I thought of a way that it could really work in a cool way that would make us forget that Ubisoft fell a bit short on the arcade remake of the same game. We'll talk about this some other time.

Some other time isn't now because we've gotta close this one out. What I Watched On The Internet This Week, do it!

Current earworm: Drip Drop by Hakeem Lyon & Tiana. The song catchy as fuck and I'm dealing with this the best I can! Regardless of actual song quality is go watch Empire! Please & Thank You!

The GOAT of the Rap Game Brian Williams is killing it again with his take on Snoop (insert animal/kaiju of choice here)'s Who Am I? (What's My Name?)!

In other news, Jimmy Fallon went to LA, became The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and retconned Saved by the Bell in the same week!

The Stone Cold Podcast vs the COO! I was glad to see this because I'm curious about where this company will be when HHH takes the reigns and his current views about the state of the product. Now where's Steph who we all know is the best part of the WWE for the reasons apparent and no so!

Shouts to my Purrfect Trio fam mainly Yushira aka The Dragon Princess for what I can only faithfully describe to you as 16 consecutive ass beatings in a row! If you need some Super Punch-Out!! pointers then look no further.

I'm calling it right now! This is 2015's Hatsune Miku Project Diva F! I don't remember the last time when I laughed this hard at a Quick Look! I guess this can happen when the East & West link up for Dying Light Co-Op!

That shall be that!


We'll be back to do this again soon so be sure to join us when that happens!

#TheCool: Power Rangers Runback! A Dino Charged Story

#TheCool's in the building ready to do what we do best so just chill out and we promise to take you on a trip through last week like nobody else like us can!

As usual though #DoaGHThaDOJO's always serving the fiends that fighting game goodness like no other and here's what available for you right now!

Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, Sengoku Basara X, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma, Akatsuki Blitzkampf Ausf.Achse, En Eins Perfektwelt, Aquapazza Aquaplus Dream Match, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, Chaos Breaker, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code, Daemon Bride Additional Gain, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Samurai Shodown Sen & Blade Arcus from Shining!

Always got what you need and the stuff you never knew you needed! Enjoy that!

This Week In Everything, time to show them last week the way you do it!

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is coming to MURICA this Summer! I don't know about any changes or additions but I'd assume the that this version would reflect whatever would be the current arcade balance at the time of release. We shall wait and see.

Want to know what's not coming to MURICA? Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi! Sumeragi's taking Ashikaga Yoshiteru & Kyōgoku Maria and giving them the level up from NPC to playable characters in this version. Kasuga, Maeda Toshiie, Matsu, Takeda Shingen & Uesugi Kenshin will be returning in this version as well. The new character Sen no Rikyū is brand new and he's all about getting drunk to get super powers. SENGOKU BASARA! No concrete date as of now but I'll keep you updated on that.

Coming out in most places on Steam on the 27th is The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match. I'd assume this version would be based on the XBLA version with balances changes from the NESiCA X Live version. 98 was decent so I expect the same from this version as well. Still waiting for XI!

Reptile & Ermac have joined the cast of MKX. That's it.

Omen's in Killer Instinct now. OK.

There's some fanservice armor in Soul Calibur Lost Swords. Yeah.

More of DmC: Definitive Edition at 60 FPS.

A compare of the PSP & the HD versions of Type-0.

A look at the EDF's latest weapon, the Depth Crawler.

Pack 3 of DLC for Hyrule Warriors all about Majora's Mask. Tingle & Young Link as playable character, a Majora's Mask Adventure Mode map, and costumes for Impa, Sheik and Lana. It'll drop on February 5th.

We got a new look at JJBA: Eyes of Heaven that feature some Diego Brando & Stroheim gameplay so enjoy that. If you wish to experience this yourself and have a JP PSN account then click THIS and get the demo for yourself. Enjoy that too!

Nitro+ Blasterz presents a look at Muramasa so get a taste of that.

Speaking of that game is that we got some confirmations of some new characters joining the game and where Saber & Sonico sit on the Playable/Assist sides of said fences. Highlight the picture to see who's playing what part and where they're from.

Looks we have plenty to look forward to with this game so be sure to stay tuned for the latest. Thanks for 4Gamer for the pictures and you can read the article thse pictures came from HERE.

What Did I Get Into This Week?

I played some Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 while NFL Blitz was downloading on the 360 because it was on sale last week. Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code & Violent Storm during some PC maintenance and its just the constant reminder that I need a new PC bad as hell and it'll come when its time. That time needs to be yesterday about 2 years ago.

Power Rangers Dino Charge premiered online a week early and I saw it and I liked what I saw. A far cry from the failure of Super Megaforce and we shall see if this holds up 19 & 39 episodes from now.

Finally got around to listening to both Run the Jewels albums and Killer Mike & El-P murdering shit! I'm mad at myself it took this long to get both albums in my systems. My kind of Hip Hop!

The usual suspects showed up and did what they did like they always do. I just need more, more, more of what I love to watch & read. All you can ask really.

Time to wrap this one up! What I Watched On The Internet This Week, close us out!

The Skillz Wrap-Up song was a highlight of the holiday season and I remember when I heard the 06 Wrap Up and was laughing hard at a recap of the year I could vibe with. Over the years Skillz kept doing it but after the 2012 one Skillz bowed out of doing them and I was surprised when I was going through my old videos that I came across this and was glad to see Skillz back at it. Hope he continues the trend.

I'm super late on these DJ Dicks songs but entertaining remixes are just that.

I will admit that NBA Street Volume 2 had one of the best soundtracks in gaming history but this is the reminder that Volume 1 was no slouch in that department either. I'm just glad to know the name & artists behind the song which is something that has eluded me for while now.

In our Pony minute is a new episode of EG Fluffle Puff and the return of the Internet's Only Pegasister Reviewer, Kimi Sparkle.

A new episode of Voices of Gaming.

qzecwx takes on another Rockman 2 hack titled Final Mix.

Tekken Crash is back and its all about Tekken 7. There wasn't any Shaheen or Lucky Chloe play but we'll be getting plenty with the game dropping in arcades later this month.

Shouts to Desk for these combo vids for all the Omega characters. It is really interesting to see those changes in motion but I'm just disappointed that Capcom only went half way and didn't really embrace the Rainbow Edition roots and the characters come off more like EX/Gold characters from Guilty Gear which isn't truly all bad though. Maybe I'll give this a try myself soon. Maybe.

That shall be that for this one.

The Dino Charge team is rocking the cover this week. We'll see if the show can be good. Gotta work on that theme song though.

Before we get out of here is that I'm sad to say that Monty Oum has passed away. A tremendous talent and his presence will be missed. I remember when I first saw Haloid and how sick that was and how that followed up into Dead Fantasy and into his opus that is RWBY! They don't make them like Monty Oum too often and that's a hell of a hole to fill creatively. What this means for RWBY is unknown but here's hoping the show goes on! Thank You for your contributions and may you find peace!

In his memory please enjoy Haloid & all 8 chapters of Dead Fantasy! Still awesome stuff even today! RIP Monty Oum!

We'll be back to do this again so please join us! Your presence is always welcome and appreciated here!
