That game was unreasonably hard, but beating it was soooo satisfying. Thats how games should be. You should need to replace the now-fragmented controller at least once before you finish the game.

By far, the worst company, the committing the greatest, most heinous atrocities in this area, is Nintendo. Anyone remember the old Mega Man days? When games were absurdly difficult, and beating them was nothing short of a goddamn miracle? Thats how Nintendo was. They used to make challenging, fun games, like Metroid, or LoZ, or Super Mario Bros. Now, they make total shit. The only thing the Wii is riding on is Brawl and Galaxy. Without those, the Wii would be absolutely fucking pointless. And now, to top it all off, they have the "Demo Play" feature on some of their newer games- This is a feature that causes the game to play itself, where if you hit any sort of difficutly whatsoever, you jsut turn it on, and the game beats it for you until you resume again- Which means you never ever have to do anything challenging. What the fuck is the point of the game then? Things like this are worse that just making bad games- Its a betrayal. Us hardcore gamers made them rich by buying Mega Man and Metroid. Now, they just shake their Asian dicks at us while laughing their asses off all the way to the bank by making bullshit games that take no skill and even less thought to complete- And soccer moms and grandmas everywhere thank them kindly for it.

I have to commend Bungie on one thing with the Legendary on Halo 3. Even though it was unarguably easier than the Legendary in Halo 2, the difference was that in 3 the skulls would unlock from the menu once you found them. You could then activate as many as you like- Its commonly considered that turning on all the gold skulls but Black Eye and Iron (Because there are certain levels where using them makes the game literally unplayable) is one of the most difficult gaming experiences known to man. I tried it once, and they aren't lying. You will die about twenty times in the first gunfight alone. Its because of this customizable ramp in difficulty that the Legendary on Halo 3 is acceptable and technically harder.
You do know Mega Man was made by Capcom right?
