Megaman Legends


So it turns out my PS3 can play PS1 games. I've had it for almost a year and never thought to try it. I assumed when the newer models removed backwards compatibility it meant no PS2 OR PS1. So yeah, I'm an idiot. Luckily I brought some PS1 games with me to college to play on my PC and am now enjoying my old favorites on my fancy new system.

One of those is Megaman Legends, one of the best games to ever come out on the PS1. The Legends series is without a doubt my favorite Megaman series. Of course, you can imagine how excited I am over Capcom's recent announcement of a new Legends game after 10 years of waiting. Let's hope they don't let the fans down with this one.

I beat the first game in about 5 hours over the weekend and it was just as much fun as I remember. Going to get started on the second game later this week now that I've got my first few papers out of the way. Look forward to a double review of both games sometime soon.

Wow, a 5hr trip? I should give it a shot if its really that short. Always heard that these are great games but never gave them a shot despite being a huge classic Mega Man fan. I'll take a look

i'm looking forward to the new megaman thats coming out. the series was always rediculously hard but that is what made it so good. oh and there are some really good psx and ps2 emulators for the pc. it sucks that there is no ps2 bc for the ps3, wish I could play some tokyo extreme racer.
