Post Quite Possibly a Stupid Decision, but...
I'm toying with the idea of posting a short video series of my own. Nothing really fancy or major about it, but I'm thinking about playing through the Classic Mega Man series and actively keeping track of how many times I get hit or lose lives. I also want to see if I can beat the games without reliance on save-states as I normally do.

Boring? Possibly. Stupid? Truly. Do I have other things I could be doing with my time? Yes.

But how many of those other things would allow me to laugh at my own failures? Not too many, granted. ;)

I'll try to get the first video on up next Wednesday, then I'll see how things go from there.

Alright, first video's up. Here's hoping things turn out well.

Making these videos shouldn't be this satisfying for me.
...Anyway...

Guts Man's stage, everyone!

Third's on up, we're on a roll. Though aside from a swarm of Bladers and a boss battle that went much better in practice, I really don't have much to say.

It's time to post the first of Mega Man 1's three evils... and as it turns out, the least of them (at least for me.)

Casual Failure #4 (Mega Man 1: Elec Man)

Casual Failure #5 (Mega Man 1: Ice Man)

This stage was a bit of a pain for me, and not just because of the Footholders. My first take was cut short because I had to exit the program. Even though my performance in the second take was much better, I didn't feel right just using that one and saying it was how things went on my first try. So, I used both takes together.

Casual Failure #6 (Mega Man 1: Fire Man)

Fire Man's always been a pain for me, even with the Ice Slasher. I've seen how dodging his attacks are done, and I've still never been able to get the timing down. :annoyed:

Ah, well.

Casual Failure #7 (Mega Man 1: Wily Factory #1)

In light of the Big Eyes, Footholders over spikes, and the boss itself, this one could have gone a lot worse.

Even when you know what you're doing, success isn't guaranteed. This level has my first D grade, though part of that was because of personal clumsiness.

Casual Failure #9 (Mega Man 1: Wily Factory 3)

Since this stage is rather short, there's not much of note. Happily, because of its length (or lack of length, rather), I was able to get my first A-range grade.

Casual Failure #10 (Mega Man 1: Wily Factory 4)

By contrast, this is the video where I get my first failing grade. I blame Fire Man.

In the future, I think I'll just wait until I've finished with a game and then post playlists here as they become available. The idea of just popping up and posting here each and every time I have a new video is sounding less and less like a good idea.

As planned, I've completed my playthrough of Mega Man 2. As such, the appropriate playlist is now up and running.
