Mega Man Legacy Collection - PlayStation 4

5 out of 5 eggs Ahhh, so many childhood memories. 01/05/2017

This review is from: Mega Man Legacy Collection - PlayStation 4

Pros: Mega Man 1 - 6

Now WITH a specific "pause" button (L2 by default) for MM1's pause glitch against the Yellow Devil.

Just in case you don't have the patience of Job, like we all once did as kids and teens.

Cons: The playstation 4, like the PS3 and PS2 and PSX before it has the split arrow pad, which, I find to be less ergonomic and comfortable than the NES/SNES D-Pads. Just have to nitpick, but neither the thumb joysticks, nor the split 4 way directional pad compare to the Nintendo D-Pad.

Another minor nitpick is that the middle "menu" button on the PS4 controller is usually what you hit by accident instead of the tiny "start"/"option" buttons. Needless to say, it doesn't pause the actual gameplay so if you were off to use an E Tank just before slamming the wrong button, you'll return with your invuln frame off and DIE.

That's about it. Like I said, nitpicks, really.

Oh, and I haven't yet figured out how to set up a replay loop for the soundtracks. Been busy reliving old memories with a less than stellar controller. But at least I can upload my replays to facebook or the PSN...

Other Thoughts: Very important. This game removes some of the nasty glitches in tile placement on the Anniversary Edition (PS2) where items which fell on the "seam" between two tiles would get knocked over into pits if the tiles were two block platforms over a pit. Same glitch made airman's rising platform area in MM2 a nightmare (as did the lack of Yellow Devil Elec Beam glitch in MM1 remake.) This game has none of those problems.

3 out of 5 eggs Newegg used to be great. 09/02/2016

This review is from: Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership

Pros: Supposed to give you automatic rush processing and discounted shipping. On paper, at least.

Cons: Supposed to. Doesn't. First order since renewing, was delayed, didn't ship out, the customer service folks no longer have the ability to call warehouse (or wouldn't.)

Other Thoughts: Regardless how things go, Newegg's made me unhappy. This is the same Newegg, which had, before "premier," been able to SAME DAY ship an order they hadn't sent out the day before (aka bungled) for a mission critical piece of equipment I ordered for a customer the day before labor day (they always fail at the best times) with overnight shipping and rush processing (before premier.)

Been using Premier for sometime now and used to be a happy newegg customer since they first started, so .. "a long time."

Pros: Bought one of these from newegg and one elsewhere. The newegg unit was a good price, very classy rig, with a pretty finish and a nice brushed aluminum feel, and with all the bennies of an AMD A-8 / A10.

The unit from newegg was brand new.

Came with windows 8.1 COA in the bios (that's how Windows 8+ is done these days, sticky COA is only for reinstalls or upgrades of OEM or retail for the time being), which was nice.

Cons: Came with some typical high level manufacturer fluff and required a reinstall and tweaking for the users in question.

Other Thoughts: Be VERY careful who it is you're buying these from. Seen them at a certain store reminiscent starts with a W ends with a T, and discovered theirs, for almost the same price was a REFURB/Recondition... Only says so on their website, not in store. Was actually out of stuck, but dirty that other people sell refurbs/reconditions for 20 bucks cheaper than the price of the newegg new one... and don't tell you theirs are refurbs.

**** The one from newegg was new. ****
Careful where you shop. Newegg did well on this one! I'd give'em six eggs.
