Do you like hard games? No, I don’t mean hard like you had to restart a level twice in Call of Duty: Black Ops, I mean really flipping difficult, ball-breaking joypad-flinging HARD! Still with me? Good, then maybe you will enjoy Mega Man 4, out on PSN this week.
The game was originally released worldwide on the NES way back in 1992, but the emulated version PlayStation gamers can look forward to hating on Wednesday is the PS1 re-release, only ever brought out in Japan. Looking sharper than the original 8 bit version, Mega Man 4 introduced our diminutive helmeted chum to the joys of the charge shot, and pitted him against such fantastic villains as Toad Man, Dust Man and Ring Man. Anyone else get the idea that Capcom were running out of ideas? Maybe if the series continues we will eventually meet Dandruff Man and Bacon Rind Man?
