Megaman 1 for the NES (Part 1)

The last review I did, as a request, ET for Atari, was a game I ended up reviewing in a negative light. This time I would like to assess a good game, Megaman 1 for the NES, made by one of my favourite video game companies, Capcom. This review is to be one in a series in which I will pick games made by Capcom, so look out for reviews on games including Megaman X, Street Fighter II, Resident Evil and much more! Of course I shall do the odd review on request, but my main aim is to look back at some of Capcom’s greatest accomplishments in the world of gaming and take a good look at them (and hopefully do these admired titles some justice!).
Capcom began by making arcade games, but soon began with home video game consoles. Shortly after releasing Street Fighter on arcade, Megaman was introduced to the NES in December 1987. Street Fighter II was yet to make its debut, and its other prestigious title, Resident Evil, had not even been thought of, so this was one of their earliest successful releases.
In the years, Capcom has come out with some crazily difficult games. Devil May Cry is no exception to this, for example, but neither is Megaman. Just to clear something up, Megaman ranges from enjoyable testing to insanely hard. I suppose a platforming style such as Megaman’s would be quite drab without a bit of challenge, and challenge is appreciated. But is it too challenging? Does it feel unfair? Did the company stuff too much spice in this remarkably modest sausage? ...
I thought I'd detail the 3ds/NGP's specs full-on today, with two sets of totally in-depth information and a scattering of analysis. Click on read more to find out more. If you found the information useful, don't forget to donate!

The more donations we get, the more money we will have to spend on recording equipment, software, games and more so that we can keep your experience on filmflux as fresh (no, not in that way *rollseyes*) and as interesting as possible!
Yesterday, Sony unveiled its PSP2 Handheld Gaming System, codenamed 'NextGen Portable', or NGP. What I can tell you, readers, if that Sony's NGP is most likely going to be light years ahead of the competition when it is released. At filmflux, I have compiled a like-for-like comparison of tech between both systems.
Study the comparison table I have compiled below for a light scattering of information regarding both systems. (Flash 10 required)
All E.T ever wanted to do was to phone home...
Well, at least its cover art looks half-decent..
It’s a pity to begin a game reviewing career with a title infamous for its shameful gameplay, but what drew me to ET: Extra Terrestrial for the Atari 2600 is just how much criticism it gets. If it’s bad for Atari, it ought to be bad by any standards (no offence to Atari intended). I thought it would be an idea to get hands-on gameplay just to see what was so unattractive about such a modest title. Needless to say, there were problems with it.
In 1983, some may not know that Atari buried truckloads of unsold ET game cartridges, among others, due to over production and lack of sales, in a New Mexico landfill in the desert. This largely contributed to Atari’s bankruptcy and its eventual collapse in 1984. It begs the question: how bad could this game have been to bring down the company which created it? ...
I got this picture from a Japanese magazine and I thought the character was interesting to draw! (chris: It's Megaman, I think)

Hi guys, check out our brand spanking new filmflux trailer.
Here's a little project I did for a geography class. It's pretty epic, so it is up here now. :)
It illustrates the 1999 Izmit Earthquake in Kocaeli, Turkey.
A Tried and tested message through connection ambassador on the Wii... it isn't really a movie, but the render under it is pretty good and is what you can expect from a request.
