Finished the last of the challenges in MMLC2. Basically all I had left after the last post was buster only boss rush in MM10 which wasn't that bad, and then Enker and Punk fights. Enker with Proto Man took me a while because he killed me in 3 hits. Turns out the trick is to just tank damage from his uncharged slash beam things because they do less damage than touching him, so you can use those i-frames to make sure he doesn't touch you. Hell yeah, cheese strats.

Mega Man 9's done now, too. Going from least to favorite order here, so 8's next and 10's last. Been years since I played 10 though, so that should be interesting.

I love 9's weapons, I do not like spikes and enemies popping out of pits everywhere. It also has my least favorite boss music. Ha-ha. It's still a fun game, but I like 10 so much more. 8's got the second best set of weapons, and I always liked the art in that one.

4 > 3 > 10 > 8 > 1 > 9 > 2 > 7 > 6 > 5 has been my take. Just not sure on both 1 or 7's positions nowadays.

Enemies pop out of pits in 9, but is it worse than the other games? Like the exploding Game Boys in Bomb Man from 1, or the parachute bombs in Commando Man in 10, etc? As for spikes, I only recall 1 section that stands out as kinda cheap, which is that near pixel-perfect jump in the water section in Wily 2. But other than that I don't think 9 is that hard comparatively.

I've never sat down and ranked them before so my opinion might change depending on when you ask me, but to quickly throw one out:
9 > 10 > 2 > 5 > 1 > 4 > 3 > 6 > 8 > 7

I have trouble with ranking them cause some I either like or dislike for different reasons. I used to like 3 a lot more, but I find it to overall be the jankiest in the series. Tons of slowdown, awkward garbage like the top spin, the doc robots which might be on the first sections in the series, overreliance on weapon energy like the Rush jet sections.
6 I mainly ranked low because I'm the least familiar with it of any of the 8-bit games. And 7/8 I just don't like the sprites and slowness. 8 also has that weird disconnect in the middle of every level with a load screen that teleports you somewhere completely different. And also I hate that they added swimming, cause the 8-bit Mega Man games all had really fun water sections with the high jumping.

With raocow's Mega Man proposal video today I remembered that I don't think I've ever actually beaten Rock Man & Forte before. I own it, but was unsure as to whether or not I actually finished it.

I went through it from the beginning today, and got as far as the second King stage before becoming pretty damn confident I never finished it before. This stage is a nightmare. I believe there's 5 bosses in it? At least with the first 3/4 there's either an always-there 1-up, but before the third boss, as far as I can tell you just have to kill bats at the beginning of the section until you get a 1-up. But once you actually beat that third boss, which is 2 phases, you're put up against another boss with no section to grind lives. And if you game over, you start the whole section over again. And all of the bosses take FOREVER.

edit: So I went back and tried again, and now I know how to use items in the menus. I thought it was like MM8 where you bought them in the store and they were immediately applied, but apparently you have to switch through the menus. I ended up doing all of King 2 in 1 life, but died on the boss once because I had half health, but then killed him on the next life, only getting hit once. GG

It took me three hours of almost straight recording to do a no-damage run of that stage as Mega Man a few years back. That stage has so much that can go wrong just in a normal playthrough, especially that part with the plane fight, let alone doing the whole enchilada without taking damage. Personally, my least favorite stage is Magic Man. There's no safety net right from the start. If you're playing the GBA version, it's worse thanks to the camera. Thankfully, I saved Bass and doing normal no-death runs for the GBA side of things. King 2 still sucked since he doesn't get that platform to hide under and dodge those bombs that drop in. Ha-ha.

Man, that series was exhausting to do. Final stage is easier for the most part, but it's still a gauntlet run.

You no-damage peeps are nuts. Closest thing I've done to that was 100% achievements in Mega Man 10 which had a "beat the game without getting hit" achievement, but it was made easier with easy mode, not only cause it's... easy mode... But easy mode let you save between Wily stages.
And I'm finally done R&F. I actually liked the final Wily fight, it was kinda fun.
I was playing as Bass cause I guess that's "easy" mode in terms of this game, so I think I'll try to do Mega Man next.

edit: Alright, now done with Mega Man. Definitely much more challenging with him, but surprisingly not by a HUGE margin. It's mainly from all the dickish jumps in the game. There's some parts where they actually expect you to ride the ice wall to complete jumps. But I actually found some bosses easier with him, particularly Burner Man, who I find really hard to use his weakness against, so instead I just killed him with charge shots and he became much less of a hassle.
Well, I can officially say I've beaten the whole classic series now!
...Unless Rock Man Soccer counts... I own it, but not sure if there is a way to beat it. I'm not even sure how it works, really.
Oh, and also Wily Tower? Maybe I'll do that some other time. Main series is done anyway.

And I beat MM8 this morning. That leaves MM10, but I chose to start up a Proto Man run of MM9 first. Guess I want to 100% this whole thing.

Ended up doing a hero mode and superhero mode in Mega Man 9. There's one jump in Galaxy Man's stage in superhero mode that I'm pretty sure is impossible so I ended up just coming back with Rush Jet later and skipping it. Also lots of grabby guys from Galaxy Man's stage, but all over the game and they throw you into spikes and bottomless pits.
Final IGT was 1:26:39.

edit: I streamed the whole thing. Didn't end up even using any E-tanks or M-tanks. Here's a video archive (though I'm sure nobody including myself would want to watch this):

Picked up Sonic Mania for my Switch reason, and

I'm in love with this game, the music is fantastic, the gameplay is amazing, and those new zones man, holy crap, they're so good

The bosses are actually pretty difficult, but really fun! My personal favourites are

Chemical plant Act 2

, and

Hydrocity Act 1

Took down Mega Man 10 last night in a single sitting. I'll probably upload and commentate that footage to finish off those single segment runs at long last. Note to self: Don't try to buster duel bosses you haven't fought in five years. It's not wise. It is still my favorite of the four games on the MMLC2, so that's neato. Anyway, I love that you unlock all the previously DLC only stuff in 9 and 10 once you beat those games.

Don't see why Sonic Mania won't be next. I'd been putting it off until I took care of Mega Man.

Binding of Isaac Switch Update:

After a successful Judas Greed Run, I've finally unlocked the keeper! I can finally stop playing Greed mode
They way I unlocked him was by repeatedly playing greed mode until I filled the machine. Was it a pain? Yes. Was it worth it? Well, I never have to worry about keeping enough money to donate to the greed machine, so yeah! (But then again, I donated for pain to my soul and happiness.)

I kinda want to play through Demon's Souls and hopefully finish it this time. I think if I attempt playing through it again it'll be my like, 4th attempt at it.
I've beaten all the other soulsborne games multiple times each, but haven't done Demon's Souls once and I think I need to fix that.

You do need to note what are now considered odd mechanics that are exclusive to Demon's Souls though.

For example, there is a weight limit (including consumable items), different herbs of different healing intensities instead of estus flasks, when you're in ghost form (basically you're hollowed state) you have half HP but you take less fall damage, and certain things are available through what World Tendency you have for each section (if you're really interested in getting certain things).

Good luck trying to finish it, though!

Yeah, I'm familiar with most of those things, although tendency kinda baffles me. My furthest attempt I've made got about 4.5 hours in, where I got to I think the second boss in the mines.
I definitely think the first Dark Souls perfected the healing system. I don't know why they backtracked to basically the Demon's Souls system in Bloodborne, and upgrading your estus count with shards in DS2 and DS3.

Binding of Isaac Switch Update:

Did something else I never thought I'd ever do, but I beat Hush as the Lost. What a rush that was! What helped me especially was getting Sinus infection as my first item room item, which literally destroys Hush! I also got an amazing first Devil room, with Abbadon, and then I got Crickets Head in the Hush room itself, and Wait, What? as defence with Big Fatty. Pretty amazing kill!
I also killed Mega Satan with Judas, which I wouldn't have done without Triple Shot + Mom's knife.

And now that I've switched from a Knux run to a co-op Sonic & Tails run, I can say that Sonic Mania's really fun. I have six emeralds already through five zones. That style of special stage clicks with me. I don't mind the half pipe stuff, but seeing that style used again is nice.

About 11 hours into Demon's Souls so far. Made more progress so far than I ever did on any other attempt.

Just completed Shrine of Storms, only area I've beaten so far. Boletarian Palace I got stuck at the fog gate, which apparently I can now go through since I cleared a shrine (haven't checked back there yet). Stonefang Tunnel I got stuck at Flamelurker. Tower of Latria I got stuck at Maneater. And I haven't checked Valley of Defilement yet, but it's probably next on my list of places to go. I was kinda just doing the areas in order, counterclockwise.

I finished Uncharted 4 a second time.
I definitely think that theven game is a bit too long, but at the same time the story is very enjoyable.
I finally beat the final boss without dying, so at least I understand it now.
I might eventually play through on the Crushing difficulty. Although, I've heard the combat is not fun on Crushing.
Something goes here sometime.

Demon's Souls update, few hours later:
So... Valley of Defilement was awful. It's like Blighttown, but somehow worse? You slowly wade through poison swamp, and if any of the giant mob enemies with clubs spot you while you're in the swamp, you're basically good as dead because you can't roll, they can go faster than you, and they'll just keep swinging at you until your stamina is drained if you're shielding, then your health. I also wasn't able to find any shortcuts, though I think there was supposed to be at least one. I noticed at the beginning of one area, I think after the first boss there was a plank that looked like a bridge you could kick down, which I assume was a shortcut but I never figured out how to get there. I got as far as killing that one lady in the plague swamp cave with Garl Vinland. Which I assumed was the end of the area, but it didn't light up the area on the tendency map, so I guess I have more to do there.

Afterwards I continued on with Boletarian Palace, and got all the way up to Old King Allant, who was a super fun fight, though I can't say I'm fond of the grab move draining your soul level. He ended up draining my stamina to the point where my armor was too heavy to fast roll, so I was killed after that. But I was able to make a dash back into his boss room, grab my souls, and use a shard of archstone to take them back to the nexus. Feeling a bit discouraged, I went back to Flamelurker, now with a defence spell in tow, as well as a flame resistance ring, and took him down with little hassle. Went straight to the dragon god or whatever after that, and he's basically a setpiece fight, little effort required, and that was area 2/5 down. Then, after re-leveling my souls back to where I was before Allant drained me down like 5 levels, I took another shot at him with a weapon enhancement spell, and killed him this time. That's 3/5 areas down, and I left it off there for the night. Quite a lot of progress made today.

Oh, so apparently I was way closer to the end of Demon's Souls than I thought. I literally just had to kill 2 more bosses and I was done.
Kinda disappointing that there isn't really a final boss. I assumed there was 2 endings, a "walk away" ending (which I did) and one where you kill the maiden in black. Looked it up, and I was right. I had the suspicion because you do it in Dark Souls 3 for an ending. I probably won't play through it again right now just to see a different cutscene at the end.

But the endgame was fairly anticlimactic, since I just had to kill Maneaters (which wasn't much of an issue at my high level) and Old Monk, who I killed with R1 spams and basically without seeing his attacks. Still, fairly fun game but pretty clunky in comparison to Dark Souls and onward. I'm guessing the game intends for you to finish off with False King Allant, because he's probably the toughest boss in the game. But I didn't so oh well.
I was a bit disappointed in the lack of interesting items/item descriptions. I was reading every single item description, but most were copy-pastes or like, a description of what a sword is. It was especially disappointing with the boss souls. Dark Souls definitely stepped it up in the lore department, with item descriptions and whatnot.

Also I never figured out how to infuse the boss souls on weapons. I assumed I had to give Flamelurker's soul to Ed based off in-game dialogue, and... Turns out that's exactly what you do? I'm gonna have to look up how to trigger the option, but I went out of my way to try that and there were no new dialogue choices with him after I killed Flamelurker and got his soul.
Final play time:
