Musings of a Rockman Fan
So I had some sit down time yesterday and thought up of a few things that really grind my gears about our favorite franchise.
-Metools/Mettaurs/Mets, have been annoying us for twenty years with their ability to deflect attacks, only to be destroyed when they peek to see if we have let our guard down. The things are freaking invincible. Why hasn't their technology been implemented into other foes such as Robot Masters? Surely a brilliant mad scientist such as Wily would have realized this.
-Does anyone ever recognize Netto as a hero? The kid saves the world from disaster, but his efforts are forgotten in the following sequel. To make matters even more awkward, he's never rewarded. Where's my jumbo check?
-While we're on the topic of the EXE series, why is an area that has a total of four to six buildings considered a "town?" Sure, this applies to many RPGs, but am I the only one that notices the amount of homes in Akihara Town gradually decrease in each sequel? What happened the school? (EXE4)
-If you're an "animal" Repliroid, chances are you're going to be an Irregular. When have we ever come cross a animal Repliroid that has not turn out to be evil? I had high hopes for Magma Dragoon, but that went down like a lead balloon.
