Mega Man X Playthrough

Friday, December 27, 2013

Last night I fixed my SNESJoy. I then decided to play some Mega Man X with it.

Since I've been messing with streaming, I decided it was a good opportunity to do a impromptu play through of it on twitch like I didn't get done on XMas with Zelda, A Link to the Past.

Again, it was just me playing and chatting through text chat. No mic or anything.

The total air time was just a little over 4 hours, but I took a 30m break once, and stopped to chat some (Starting at 1:57:41 you will see me stop moving for several seconds to type).

I'm an experienced MMX player, but I'm definitely not a pro. So don't expect that much. It wasn't a speedrun or anything. You will notice I stick to the X-Buster a lot, and only resort to boss weapons when I don't feel like dealing with something any further. It's a completionists run. Meaning I got everything including the Hadouken. I tried not to use it to much, as I'm used to using it in my play throughs over the years, but I did put it to some use at the end after I beat the dog and Sigma1 each once without it. That's how I rationalized using the cheesy weapon, because at that point I was getting tired.

3:59:25 (06:40)  - Start of Final Attempt
4:02:27 (09:42)  - Killing blow on Sigma/Game beat!

I had a ton of fun doing this. It was a nice learning experience, as far as learning about streaming goes. I'm not certain yet, but I would kind of like to do this more in the future. I'd just like to do it with more of an audience. If I do, I think I will give notice ahead of time like I've done with my continuation of Zelda, A Link to the Past on New Years Eve (tune in!). I may even play through MMX again at some point, and try to be less noobish. lol

Please check out the recordings for my MMX play through below

I recommend putting dash on the R button, this way you can dash-jump through half the game. Maybe you can do it in under three hours. ;)

It also helps getting the hadouken and one or two of the heart containers.

I also put pause on L, so I can quickly select any weapon I need. I never really used the weapon cycling but they can be put on X and A.
