Let's not go by that analogy then, because in X7 X turns into an insufferable emo and that would mean that the worst is yet to come. :S But yea,,a feeling of frustration and helplessness brought by oversights and idiocy by the creators... hmm.
On the other hand, I always got Mega Man vibes from Nanoha, what with the Blue and white armor wearing protagonist and long haired blond BFF. XD
Also, doesn't High Max remind you of something... "Hey, I came out of nowhere but your weapons don't work on me!" Now you will have to find completely new abilities to use in a convoluted fashion that suck anyways.
That's right. X6 is the Force of the Megaman franchise. And X sorta got Signum'd bad in this game which took him 2 games to recover.
Anyhow, if you beat this asshole a guy named Dynamo will now appear in those secret boss rooms where you can easily farm souls from him. (Hit him with the water weapon and keep shooting him with regular shots, and he'll give you a 200 soul sphere, up to 600 per fight.
Yea it's bad game design. If you somehow engage him without defeating anybody else, you lose. You cannot win and have to suicide. And press stage select because selecting continue dumps you back there.
And like I said, I haven't gotten to it myself. Been going around to collect better things. I think beating him opens out another secret boss where you can farm souls and opens the final fortress.
Oh! So that's the effing SECRET! sometimes i've managed to drain just one line of his lifebar and i became nuts trying to figure out how i've manage to do it because otherwise the guy is freakin invincible xDU
I'm talking about the special encounter with him, it affects the gameplay or the outcome of the story in some way o.o?
Oh, that douchebag? I'm trying to figure that out atm. Are you talking about the fights in the secret areas or the one near the end? I haven't gotten to the later yet. Interestingly, he is voiced by Norio Wakamoto. (Why did they get such VAs for THIS)
To beat High Max, you're supposed to hit him with a charge shot and then use any kind of special weapon. If you're Zero you need to hit him with a special attack such as the flame sword and hit him with anything else. (I like using the dragonfly shield). Only problem is that he does fucking huge damage, so you'll need to gather sub tanks and the life recover item.
I can't avoid to look at your Megamn conversation. I also played X6 and find the experience very frustrating, specially with a guy named "High MAX". Have you ever found the way of defeating him xD? Is there any reward for doing it?
