Remember when ye called customer service, Hero? Success! Thanks to ye, and everyone involved.
Happy to see Canadian folks get to try these for 2 bucks also.
Wonder if us Latin American fellows also get to see the change in our eShop?

I'm kind of half asleep, and even though I saw the thread title this part gave me a heart attack.

Great deals though.
Well there are robutts, some fly! There's exploration (I think XD)!

Changed it. :p I WISH X was out now. XD

*bows* My pleasure! :) I doubt I was the one who got this done, I'm sure plenty bombarded Customer Service, but I'm damn happy to have done my part!

Would have been interested in X on the 3DS. Even if I owned a WiiU I'd still rather have it on a portable.

I have recently seen several GAFers matter-of-factly say that Mega Man X sucks. I was under the impression that it was commonly considered one of the best Mega Man games. Is Mega Man X really considered bad in the MM/Rockman community? (Personally, I thought it was great.)

Don't listen to such people. That's all I can say as MMX is great.

I don't know how to feel about this. I made an effort not to invest into Nintendo's ecosystem due to their lack of account system, but $2? hmmm

It is my firm belief that those people need CAT scans. MMX is a masterpiece.

Pick your battles. Not buying anything isn't going to send any messages about an account system, but buying Mega Man X for $2 will send the message that quality discounts are worth having more often.

It has nothing to do with sending a message to Nintendo but more of me being uncomfortable of having games tied towards the hardware. But yeah Nintendo is usually bad with having sales, especially with vc. At this price I don't think I can pass it up.

Oh is that all? Well then I think the answer is obvious, as you've surmised yourself.

It's $2!

Wait, what? There's MMX re-make on the Wii-U?!

I picked up MMX when the sale was going on in the US and the game is a steal at $2. I had only beaten a few of the NES Mega Man games back in the day and never really got into MMX since I didn't own an SNES or PSX, but I've been running through this and have really enjoyed it. Leaves me wanting more Mega Man X goodness!

Weird, this deal dosnt show up under the price drop section, had to look up the game to see it. Didn't even see it advertised at all either.

Just as I'm away from home (and from my WiiU). Grrr... When is that online storefront coming, Nintendo?

(There's no way to buy a WiiU game from my 3DS even with the NNID update, right?)

I blame Hero of Legend and his aggressive consumer habits for making this happen.
Weird that we didn't get this immediately, but very happy that we did. Finally used up my SMT+FE eShop credit too.

Hey, this purchase gave me a new page of tiles on my Wii U OS. Is it common knowledge, that it just expands as it needs to?

I got mine and played the intro stage and one boss stage on the game pad

And its really good. I have a few other VC games (cough cough 30 cents) but this one is particulary nice to play on the gamepad

Mega Man X is AMAZING. It also has one of the best game soundtracks of the 16-Bit Era, if not of all time.

Game is a blast, my first mega man game. I'm terrible at it though. Which boss stage should I start with?

Mega Man X? Chill Penguin

Dr. Wily's Revenge? Fire Man

They might be talking about general characteristics of the X series, like the story or game quality over time or something.

If they were talking about Mega Man X game, they are terrible, because it is the best Mega Man platformer.

If they were talking about the series, they are terrible, no one talks shit about my goddess Ekkusu. He is the hero we need, but not the one we deserve.
there are legitimate complaints to make about the series but Mega Man X doesn't expose you to them, and it really is a phenomenal game. I think the X series is great anyway.
