Coming from the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter page:
"Yes! We heard the feedback from our community, and at this level, we would be thrilled to fulfill this popular wish -- to add an all-new single-player level, including a boss fight, where you can play as Mighty No. 9’s heroine, Call!
We agree it would be a fun addition and a great way to mix up the action, so fingers crossed we can make it this far!"Call's exclusive stage and boss clocks in at $3.7 million. The clock is ticking -- can we do it?!
Well.. $3,3000,000 is possibly but $3,500,000 and $3,700,000 are out of question unless someone step in and donate it by surprised them at the last minutes. Who knows.ReplyDelete
I thought for sure we would be fighting Roll in MM10.ReplyDelete
Eh, this works too.
I think Call having a unicorn support unit is a great idea, honestly. There's already artistic precedent for it to transform into a motorcycle, if that's something they want to do.
I don't understand. Or at least I hope I don't. The way I'd like to read it is that this stretch goal will make Call's Single Player mode have a level unique to her. But the way it's actually worded seems like she'll be playable for this one stage. Like... Beck's going to get captured and the game will switch to Call for one level like Zero popping in during the intro level of X3.ReplyDelete
If it's the latter? I really don't want it. I'd like to play as Call in single player. But, forced midgame character changing always gets on my nerves.
She will only be playable for a single stage (an the co-op challenges) in the main campaign, not the whole game.Delete
The way I'm reading it, it would play like an MM9/10 Special Stage.Delete
And the only way to play Call through a whole game is to co-op someone.
You have to understand that there is a ton of balancing (if you want a great playing experience) that comes along with using a totally different style character in stages that were designed for another.Delete
The design team opted to have a single stage properly set for Call, rather than address the monumental task of re-balancing every level to work well with her.
@Tekk: That's what I'm worried about, yesDelete
@HSEXE: That's at least partially wrong. The co-op is a dedicated co-op challenge mode; not a drop in setup. And while the language around this Call level is sketchy? The "mix it up" line seems to me, to lend to it being a disruption.
@undamned: It's more work to do more of anything. That's a self-evident fact. But I don't think having a second player character for the full game is an unreasonable desire, nor a daunting task for the group assembled. Mega Man has a long history of utility powers and divergent character movesets. Moreover the degree of Call's divergence from Beck hasn't been established. We know that her skills will have unique elements from Beck's. But we don't know all her skills will be unique and incomparable. We don't know if her default weapon is different, and we don't know if her transformations are entirely her own. Though I suppose it's entirely possible Call runs through levels upside down on the ceiling, can only attack by reverse contact damage, and can't jump outside of a 5-way rush attack.
I don't think the kickstarter campaign will fullfill all goals, but ultimately, after the real sales of the game, maybe the Call stage can happen via DLC.ReplyDelete
What is the point in revealing this? I'm fairly optimistic, but come on. Don't crush our hopes like that.ReplyDelete
Besides, all you have to do is add a character selection screen at the start of the game, and everyone will be happy.
Stages should've come before the consoles. More people would keep giving for consoles rather than one stage....ReplyDelete
After seeing the way the M#9 fans behave every time Mega Man or Capcom gets mentioned the past month, I'm not donating. Sorry. It's not the band I hate, it's the fans.ReplyDelete
So the fans of something ruin the something? Yeah, so many jerks love chocolate. I'm going to stop eating chocolate.Delete
And yet it's the "band" you're choosing not to support? Ya, that sure makes a lot of sense, then.Delete
When did the No9 fans attack Mega Man?!Delete
These guys love MM, that's the whole reason this game is getting made.
And surely you can't deny Capcom make it's own grave in the hearts of MM fans, do you?
Capcom's business decisions aren't the issue. They've been bad, yeah, and they aren't heroes, but the way people have been acting towards the MM stuff still coming out has been beyond obnoxious. The board game has been a case in point; raked over the coals through no fault of their own, for daring to be displayed around the same time as M#9.Delete
I hardly think my money is going to make the difference, but the fandom has put a really bad taste n my mouth, so I choose to go donate. Maybe no one else feels the way I do, maybe some do. And so it goes,
Choose not to donate. Whoops.Delete
If it were up to me, I would have put almost all the gameplay-related stuff before the console ports, because if a game sold well enough I'd probably put some of the money towards doing proper ports, but that's just me.ReplyDelete
We still got the co-op mode challenges so I'm not considering it a big loss if we fail to hit 3.7 million (I could see hitting 3.3 or even 3.5 in the last 24 hours though).
Hrreeeeen. D8 Dammit, Comcept! Why do you you this?ReplyDelete
Well, here's hoping they make it DLC at some point, if we don't manage it. T_T
