Take That, Net Navis!

Look at this cool picture I found!

Look at this cool picture I found!

I forgot to put these two pictures in yesterday’s post, and again, I found these picture on Google Images and do not claim any ownership of them. I also typed my “About” page. And I’d like to send a personal apology to the 9 people who checked out my “About” page before it existed. And I also recently realized that the reason Protoman and Elecman were so easy to defeat was probably because I had bought the Woodarmr which raises Megaman’s defense.

Mega Man Battle Network #45 Mega Man Battle Network #50

 

So, today on Megaman Battle Network, I’m not sure how long it’s been since the restaurant incident (I think it’s been a day), but Chaud has been a little down in the dumps lately. And Lan’s dad wants him to try to cheer him up. Why do I have to cheer him up? He said I got in the way! Oh, well.

Mega Man Battle Network #46 Mega Man Battle Network #47 Mega Man Battle Network #48 Mega Man Battle Network #49

 

 

I didn’t go to SciLab right off (Chaud had been visiting SciLab a lot recently). Instead, I jacked Megaman into the Net to do some item searching again. I still can’t get those items I mentioned before (the ones that Megaman couldn’t decode the data of). What could they be? I also got a Busting Level S, which is the highest ranking you can get. Then I broke my time record for getting an S, which was cool. And I unlocked another WWW pin and got the “FtrSword B” battle chip. I also found and defeated a copy of Stoneman.EXE, the Net Navi responsible for the subway incident. The subway incident is another incident that happened before I started my blog, if anyone wants to know more about it, leave a comment asking for it.  After running around a bit more and checking out the Net Merchants, I jacked Megaman out of the Net.

Mega Man Battle Network #51

 

After that I went to Den City. After I answered five questions in a quiz correctly, I got a new battle chip. I also re-challenged a Net Battler that I had lost to before, and this time I defeated them. Now I can access more of the Net! Once I had talked to everyone I could, I went to the Government Complex, where SciLab is.

Mega Man Battle Network #52 Mega Man Battle Network #53

 

Before I went in SciLab, I re-challenged the Net Battlers that have Woodman.EXE, and Sharkman.EXE (the second pictures is what the field looks like when you begin the battle with Sharkman). I managed to defeat Woodman, and get his Navi Chip (a Battle Chip that lets you use the power of other Net Navis). But Sharkman still defeated me, I wasn’t as under-powered as last time, but he was still more powerful than me.

Mega Man Battle Network #54 Mega Man Battle Network #55 Mega Man Battle Network #56 Mega Man Battle Network #57

 

When I entered the Water Works Lobby, I found a vending mechine that was malfunctioning because of a virus. Namely the one I lost to before (the second picture is what he looks like in battle). This time, though, I defeated him and got a new Battle Chip as a reward.

Mega Man Battle Network #58 Mega Man Battle Network #59 Mega Man Battle Network #60

 

Next, I went to the second floor of the Water Works to challenge Dr. Froid and his Net Navi Iceman.EXE to a Net Battle. Iceman was the one responsible for the Water Works incident, and he was still hard to defeat, even with my improved defense. But, in the end, I defeated him and got his Navi chip. When I finally went to SciLab, Chaud wasn’t there. One of the employees tells Lan that Chaud went to Den City, you know, where I just came from.

Mega Man Battle Network #61 Mega Man Battle Network #62

 

He wasn’t hard to find after that. He had been looking for an ex-member of WWW. And he was not happy to see Lan. He tells Lan to get lost, then Lan asks him what his deal is, and explains that he had come to help Chaud. Chaud then tells Lan that he doesn’t need his help and walks off. Once he is gone, Lan and Megaman decide to look for the ex-member themselves. And I have no idea where to look. I went back to the Water Works and ACDC Town to see if it was someone I had already met, but it wasn’t.

Mega Man Battle Network #63 Mega Man Battle Network #64 Mega Man Battle Network #65

 

Since I didn’t find out anything useful, I returned to Den City and re-challenged Chaud and Protoman to a Net Battle. Protoman was a little tougher this time, but not much. He was still relatively easy to defeat, and I got his Navi Chip afterwords. It is one of my most powerful chips. I love how its rank is “B”, I may be seeing a reference where there isn’t one, but I see it as a reference to the fact that Protoman’s Japanese name is Blues.

Mega Man Battle Network #66

I jacked into a summer school board and found a power up, unfortunately I never made it out of the board, because I was defeated by some viruses, and therefore, was deleted.

Well, that’s all for now. Later.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ah, Thanksgiving. A time to be with family while passing mashed potatoes and turkey around the table. Which is why I didn’t really play any video games today. This gives me a chance to catch up on a few things. For starters, I mentioned in an earlier post that I would explain individual Battle Chips, and I haven’t done that yet. I’m really sorry about that, it completely slipped my mind. Secondly, I haven’t posted any higher quality pictures of characters mentioned on this blog. So, not only am I going to post pictures of the characters mentioned, but I’m also going to post a picture of a Net Navi and two Net Ops that haven’t been mentioned. First, though, is the Battle Chip.

Mega Man Battle Network #12

 

This is the “Steal” chip. Remember how in an earlier post I explained that Megaman can only move on the red spaces? Well, this chip allows you to take one vertical line of blue spaces and turn them red. This chip is especially useful if you have a lot of “Sword” chips in your chip folder, like me. That’s really all I have to say about this chip. On to the characters!

What an Electrifying Day

Mega Man Battle Network #28

I’m not the only one who sees the Megaman Legends reference, am I?

EDIT: I’m sorry that some of the pictures didn’t show up. That should be fixed now.

Okay, so first off. From now on I will be putting my pictures above what I type about them, instead of having them below like I previously was doing.

Mega Man Battle Network #29

Today in Megaman Battle Network, I finally started back on the main storyline and bought a ticket for the subway. In case you forgot, Lan’s dad sent him an e-mail inviting Lan to a party at his work. The party was taking place in an underwater restaurant located beneath the building that Lan’s dad works at.

Mega Man Battle Network #30

Gee, I don’t know. Maybe my dad works here.

Mega Man Battle Network #31

When I went to where Lan’s dad was supposed to be, I didn’t find Mr. Hikari, instead I found Eugene Chaud. Chaud is a professional Net Battler, and therefore is pretty much a cop despite the fact that he’s the same age as Lan (yeah, don’t ask me how that works). Chaud’s Net Navi is Protoman.EXE, and is rumored to be the strongest Net Navi around. After Chaud insulted Lan (called him a kid of all things) and walked off, Mr. Hikari decided to grace us with his presence.

Mega Man Battle Network #32

Before I talked to anyone, I jacked Megaman into some PETs made from recycled plastic bottles. I found an HPmemory which raises Megaman HP.

Mega Man Battle Network #33

Mega Man Battle Network #34

If you get this reference you get a cookie.

One of WWW’s Net Agents sneaked into the party and cut off the power, causing everyone in the restaurant to start to suffocate. So, the question is, who’s idea was it to put a restaurant underwater that depended on ELECTRICITY for its AIR? Anyway, this level was the hardest so far, in my opinion. See that battery gauge at the top? If it ran out Megaman would be unable to heal himself. This actually happened to me once, that’s when I found out that Lan can recharge the gauge, which made the rest of this level much easier. Another thing that made it hard was that the level was almost like a maze, and it’s impossible to see most of the paths. I’ll admit it, I actually had to look up how to get through here.  WWW had also messed with some of the Program Navis, making them turn evil. They were some of the easiest viruses to defeat. Ever.

Mega Man Battle Network #35  Mega Man Battle Network #36

After getting near the end of the level, Megaman was able to unlock the door to the generator room. Lan went to this room only to find out that the generator was still on. Which meant that the WWW Net Navi had to be deleted in order to get power back to the restaurant. After switching back to Megaman and taking a few more steps, I came face to face with Elecman.EXE, the cause of all the trouble. Elecman greets Megaman with text talk, but whether or not this is significant is something I do not know.

Mega Man Battle Network #37 Mega Man Battle Network #38

Elecman would have to be my favorite WWW Net Navi just because of his design. Elecman has a total of 600 HP, and attacks with lightning strikes. It is impossible to defeat him when you first meet him, because once you hit him just a few times he completely restores his HP, stating that as long as he has access to electricity he is invincible. Gee, wouldn’t it be a shame if someone, you know, turned the generator off? Ha ha yeah that’d be bad.

Mega Man Battle Network #39

Once the powers cut off, this guys a total pushover. In fact, he is one of the few Megaman bosses I took out on my first shot.

Mega Man Battle Network #40   Mega Man Battle Network #41

After Elecman is defeated, Protoman makes a surprise appearance. Protoman then informs Megaman that he was running a scan on Elecman’s memory data in order to find the WWW base, and blames Megaman for not being able to complete the scan. Chaud then orders Protoman to eliminate Megaman so he doesn’t interfere anymore. At first I was a bit concerned, thinking that Protoman was going to beat me up.

Mega Man Battle Network #43

But then I found out he wasn’t so tough. And added him to the few Megaman bosses I defeated on my first shot. After Megaman explains that his power comes from his friendship with Lan (a foreign concept for Protoman), Chaud orders Protoman to jack out, and Megaman says that he should do the same.

Mega Man Battle Network #44

So in the end, peace was once again restored. For now. What trouble awaits Lan and Megaman now that WWW has all the programs they needed to delete the world? I don’t know-guess we’ll find out.

Now for a little video to get you all into the Christmas spirit.

Well, that’s all for now. Later.

Week-aversary

It has been one week since I stared my blog! I don’t have any snapshots of the games I played today, sorry about that. I was visiting my older sister, and playing with my nephews on their Xbox 360. They love playing on it with me for some reason. Anyway, since I don’t have any snapshots of games I played recently, now seems like a good time to explain how to use Battle Chips in Megaman Battle Network.

Mega Man Battle Network #10  Mega Man Battle Network #11

Like I said in an earlier post, five chips are chosen randomly from your chip folder at the start of a Net Battle. The name of the chip is shown above the picture of the chip (the orange circle). The type and power are under the picture (the pink circle). The power is shown in numbers, and the type is the letter. To have more than five chips to chose from, you have to hit the “add” button (the yellow circle). This adds five more chips for one turn, but takes one turn, however, and means that you must fight using your Megabuster until your custom gauge refills. Under normal circumstances, you can only use one chip at a time, but there are exceptions. For example, if you have more than one chip that is the same type, you can select more than one chip. In this way you can select up to five chips to use at one time (shown by the five empty slots in the purple circle). The most I’ve ever selected at one time is three, so getting to use five chips at one time probably requires a customized chip folder.

Mega Man Battle Network #13 Mega Man Battle Network #17

Another way to select more than one chip at a time is if you have more than one chip with the same name. For example, you can chose several Cannon chips to use at one time, whether they’re the same type or not. This also applies to every other type of chip.

I think I’ll start explaining individual Battle Chips in later posts. Then maybe move on to viruses, or maybe just virus attack patterns since I don’t know the name of every virus.

One more thing before I end this post. While playing The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap, I found what I believe to be a glitch. While carrying shrubs, if someone talks to Link or you find an item on the ground that you haven’t gotten before, Link strikes a pose or drops his arms, but the bush stays above his head like his arms are still holding it up. This makes it seem like Link is wearing a bush on his head.

Aw, man! I was so close to sneaking past her!

Health units in this game are referred to as hearts.

Well, that’s all for now. Later.

Sometimes I Think I’m the Best Gamer in the World…

…And then I play Megaman. So, today’s post will probably be pretty long. I had planned on explaining Battle Chips, like I said I would do later in my last post, but I think I’ll have to wait and do that in another post. Anyway, today in Megaman Battle Network, some time has passed since the bus incident (I think it was a month, but I don’t remember), and rumors are spreading about WWW starting a war. Lan and Megaman are at the park when they get an e-mail from Lan’s dad telling them that there is a party at his work and they’re invited, along with an e-mail from Mr. Froid (he’s in charge of the waterworks) telling them that he has a reward for them for saving the waterworks and his son. The waterworks incident happened before I started this blog, which is why I don’t have a post about it. If anyone wants to read about it, leave a comment asking for it.

Mega Man Battle Network #8

Mega Man Battle Network #16

I was supposed to tell Lan’s mom about the party, but I had other stuff to do first. Like going to Yai Ayanokoji’s house get my reward for buying her an antique. Zenny is the currency used in the Megaman Battle Network universe.

Mega Man Battle Network #9

After that, I re-challenged some of Lan’s friends to Net Battles, which is where two Net Navis battle. I managed to defeat Gutsman.EXE (the first picture), but could not defeat Woodman.EXE (the second picture). I didn’t get a snapshot of it, but I also fought a Net Navi named Sharkman.EXE. I hardly lasted a minute against him. I was way, way, way under-powered.

Mega Man Battle Network #17

Mega Man Battle Network #19

After losing, like 10 times, and not winning at all, I decided to jack into the Net and do some item searching and leveling up. I keep finding these items that Megaman can’t decode, though. What are they? And why can’t I decode them?

Mega Man Battle Network #14 Mega Man Battle Network #18 Mega Man Battle Network #23

Oh, well. I went to see Mr. Froid next. He gave me a WWW pin, which is something I need to get past some security walls on the Net. After that, I went back to Lan’s house and told his mom about the party. Then, I jacked back into the Net, unlocked the walls, and got the items. It was totally worth it.

Mega Man Battle Network #20

I'm not sure what this does, but I'm sure it's good.

I’m not sure what this does, but I’m sure it’s good.

Mega Man Battle Network #24

I also stopped at a Net Merchant to buy some three HP upgrades, and Woodarmr. Woodarmr raises Megaman’s defense, unless he’s fighting a fire element virus.

I'd like to thank lefthumbstick, for telling me how to put captions on a picture.

I got lost on the way to the Net Merchant, and found a virus that had stolen some money. I fought a similar virus earlier, and lost. But I defeated this one, with some difficulty. And got a lot of zenny for it.

Mega Man Battle Network #25

That’s all for now. Later.

Icon

So, I didn’t really play any video games today, because I was working on my icon. It is a picture of my character Strawberry (yes, she is a Pokemon called Glaceon) on her computer. And she is actually on WordPress in the picture. My sister did the coloring, lighting, and shading. I just drew the picture. Now all that’s left to do is write my about page and I’ll be set.

Anyway, since I didn’t play any video games today, but I don’t want my post to be too short, I think I’ll explain the battle system in Megaman Battle Network. But first, I’m going to put some more detailed pictures of the characters I talked about in my last post. I found these pictures on Google, and do not claim any ownership of them.

Mega Man Battle Network #7

Now for the battle system. The battle field is divided into two areas, a red area and a blue area. The red spaces are where Megaman can move, and the blue spaces are where the viruses can move. Megaman can NOT step on the blue spaces, and vice versa. There are certain viruses that can hover over the red spaces for a brief amount of time, but they cannot stay there. Megaman’s HP is displayed in the top left corner (in the yellow circle) the amount of damage you take depends on how strong the virus is. Once Megaman runs out of HP he gets deleted, resulting in a game over. The Custom Gauge (in the pink circle) fills up after a little while, whether you hit the virus or not, and only when it is full can you select more battle chips to use. Battle chips are necessary to deal large amounts of damage to a virus at one time, five are chosen randomly from your chip folder at the start of every battle and more are chosen randomly as the battle goes on. But I will explain more about how to use Battle Chips later on. The icon above Megaman’s head (the orange circle) shows what type of battle chip you chose, and which one of the ones you select you will use next. You can check the bottom left corner (the blue circle) to see the name of the chip that will be used next, and to see how powerful it is. Aside from Battle Chips, Megaman also has his Megabuster to attack with, and you can use it an infinite amount of time, it is not very powerful, however. You can also charge the Megabuster, but this takes a little time.

Well that’s all for now. Later.

Megaman Battle Network

So, I guess today’s post will be about Megaman Battle Network, since I already made that the title and all.

Mega Man Battle Network

In Battle Network, you switch between playing as Lan Hikari and his trusty Net Navi, Megaman.EXE. The game takes place about 300 years after the Classic series, and is made to be an alternate timeline to the X series and is meant to answer the question, “What if robots didn’t become the main technology?”. In it, everything is connected by the Net, and people carry around Personal Terminals (PET for short) that contain their own Personal Net Navi, which they use to navigate around the Net. When an evil group known as WWW (pronounced “World 3”) threatens to take over the Net using extremely dangerous viruses, it’s up to Lan, Megaman, and their friends to stop them.

And that’s the description of this game. It’s made in the RPG style, which is a change from the usual Platforming style of the other Megaman games. I’m not the best at playing them, but I enjoy almost every minute of them, except for when I’ve died for the 20th time to the same enemy. Anyway, I guess I’ll be posting about whatever I’ve played or watched earlier in the day. So, today on Megaman BN, I saved a bus, with Lan’s friend on it, that was about to explode.

Mega Man Battle Network #2

In order to do this, I had to send Megaman into the Net to defeat Colorman and save Roll (the Net Navi belonging to Lan’s friend Mayl).

Roll is the pink one

Roll is the pink one

(Roll is the pink one)

It has taken me quite a few tries to finally defeat this guy. He has two extra attacking things that move back and forth across the battlefield and block my attacks. The red one shoots out lines of fire and the blue one shoots out lines of gushing water. As you can see, Colorman has 600 HP, so it takes quite a few hits to bring him down.

Mega Man Battle Network #4

Eventually, though, I finally managed to defeat him, saving Roll, Mayl, the bus, and everyone else on it.

Mega Man Battle Network #5 Mega Man Battle Network #6

Well I guess that’s all for now. Later.
