So Close!

Finally! At long last, Magicman is deleted! It took me eight tries, but I defeated him.

But then, Mr. Wily had to go and power Magicman up. And with his new power Magicman almost deleted Megaman. Magicman, if I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d kick “U” out of it. Protoman showed up to save Megaman, but it was too late. Or was it?

So, we finally find out what Dr. Hikari meant when he said “I won’t let what happened last time happen again”. He was referring to Lan’s twin brother (I was right, YES!) who died at a young age due to heart problems. Dr. Hikari was unable to accept his son’s (whose name is Hub) death, and transferred Hub’s DNA and memories into a Net Navi, namely Megaman.EXE. Wait, wait, wait. WHAT?! Megaman is really Lan’s twin brother? WHOA. Everything makes sense now. Earlier in the game Megaman and Lan have the following conversation:

Megaman: Hey, Lan, let’s go home so we can get a snack.

Lan: Megaman, you don’t eat. Remember?

Megaman: Oh, yeah.

At first I thought that conversation was just comedy relief, but now I think it was a slight hint to Megaman’s true identity. Anyway, after revealing that amazing fact to Lan, Dr. Hikari tells Lan that he still has Hub’s memory files, and that they can use these files to restore Megaman. But there is a price. Dr. Hikari found a major problem in giving a Net Navi one of his son’s DNA, if anything happened to one, the other would feel it as well. I guess that happens because they’re twins. I’ve heard that sometimes, if identical twins have similar brain waves, they both feel pain even if only one got hurt. In order to prevent this from happening Dr. Hikari changed Megaman’s DNA by 0.001%, but if Lan re-installed Hub.BAT to Megaman, that 0.001% of difference would disappear. Lan chose to re-install the program anyway. Which is good, after all, he can’t exactly watch Megaman get deleted knowing there was something he could do. After all, Megaman’s his brother! Once Megaman awakes, he tells Lan that he always knew they were related, and that the reason he never told Lan was because he knew if Lan knew he was his brother, he would be to scared to use him. And a Navi that is never used has no reason to exist. Lan then apologizes to Megaman for ordering him around all these years. Megaman tells him that it’s okay, and goes on to state that sometimes he wishes he could be in the real world with Lan, but that watching Lan grow up from the PET made him happy. Which was just a major “Awwwww” moment.

Anyway, Lan and Megaman had better hurry-Mr. Wily’s about to hit the button that will launch the rocket! Lan manages to get there just before Wily hits the button, and jacks Megaman into WWW’s main server that has the rocket controls. I have to say, for the bad guys main server, it was really simple to get through. There was only one path, and after turning a few times, you’ve made it to the end. Like I said, simple.

Unfortunately, the Lifevirus wasn’t so simple. At first, I was like “You have got to be kidding me. The Lifevirus is a Crab man with a red flea. This is going to be so easy”. Then I noticed that he has one thousand HP, and a shield strength of one hundred. Which means that any attack that doesn’t do one hundred damage doesn’t affect him as long as that shield is up. And it only goes down when he is hit by an attack that does one hundred damage, or when he is attacking Megaman. In both cases the shield does not stay down for long. I was unable to defeat this guy on my first shot, and because the game does not allow you to save after you defeat Magicman. I now have to defeat Magicman again. UGH. I think I’m going to wait a little while on that. So, that’s all of the Megaman today. But, I do have some videos to show you guys.

First off, is an Apple commercial that I think everyone should see, and that’s all I’m going to tell you about it so that there’s no spoilers.

This next video has a seizure warning, so if you have problems with seizures you should not watch this video. It may also contain some spoilers for Lost/Unwound Future, but I think you’d either have to read the comments on the video, or be insanely smart to figure them out.

The next video is extremely funny, and perfectly describes what it is like in the East when the Weather Forecast says it is going to snow.

And finally, another video that I think everyone should watch, because it is so true.

Also, it would really mean a lot to me if you guys could post comments stating your thoughts on these videos. If you don’t have the time, that’s fine, I understand. But it would really mean a lot if you could.

Well, that’s all for now. Later.
