>>13785405 Yup. Raws for X - X4 are all released; it's just that no one's gotten off their arse and translated them. Dr. Neko's got all of them save for the last chapter of X1 translated, and all of X3 is translated, but it's a poorly done, barely comprehensible mess done by one guy who's native tongue is not english.
>>13785423 That would be Martei/Merti/Marty/however the fuck her name is actually spell because no one can settle on just one. She was made by Iwamoto as a love interest for X because at the time, Alia wasn't even a thing. She's a Mer Reploid that gets her body destroyed, b X builds her a new one, and then she gets progressively cooler/sexier bodies until that one.
She's also the leader of a band of sky pirates... for some reason. Shit's crazy, but in the awesome way.
Ayy, I got all of those translated in my native language. The translations are quite off though for some of the robot masters names. Boy do these take me back 10-15 years ago. Also got the EXE ones by Takamisaki Ryou but they're incomplete.
>>13785738 I actually liked X6 more than 4 and 5, despite all the stupid shit it did. At least it didn't have 4's godawfully dull Sigma stages or 5's... equally stupid shit. Outside of like a stage and a half I can enjoy X6, which is more than I cay say about those two.
>>13785738 X3 is honestly only good because of the sweet engine it inherited from X1 and X2. The implementation of Zero was so idiotic he might as well not even be playable. The music was also a downgrade from X1 and X2. The worst thing of all is that it's got way too much backtracking for its own good with the amount of areas blocked off by "keys". Boss weapons, armor upgrades, and ride armors all are used as ways of accessing new areas. This results in a situation where you have to revisit a previously beaten stage with an upgrade that requires that stage's boss weapon to get access to plus another boss's weapon in order to gain access to a ride armor that is only required for a chip (which you should avoid if you want the gold armor anyway). The excessive number of ride armors also means the devs felt the need to put in way more water in stages than typical for a Mega Man game. What I'm say is somehow Capcom gave us more options than ever in their games for having robots piloting mini-mecha and through their own incompetence it made the game worse.
>>13785853 Personally, I wish Iwamoto got to do the games past X4; at least then it'd give him an excuse to bring Martei in more, since she was the "designated love interest" that showed up every so often, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see the sky pirate Saint Seiya cosplayer get catty with Alia.
Meanwhile X is off crying about something and Zero is off somewhere, brooding.
God only knows he could only improve upon the travesties that were X6 and X7's plots.
>>13785884 No, that's art by the Mega Man X mangaka himself. Though I don't remember if she looks like that during the X4 manga or not, or if she even shows up in it at all; she definitely doesn't look like that in the X3 manga. She's close, but not quite there.
>>13785848 >Chuang Yi Don't they release some stuff in English? I know I bought some manga before from my local bookstores since they import it as a some sort of means to get cheap manga (relatively, it's half the price compared to stuff by Viz or Del Rey)
>>13785889 This couldn't be a better case study of too many cooks spoiling the broth, especially considering they let anyone write it. >tfw a Mary Sue was so ambitious that the next author had to get her killed off
>>13785965 I actually read that comic to the end but I can't remember the Mary Sue character was supposed to be - just vaguely remember a bunch of new OC Donut Steel characters that stood out like a sore thumb.
>>13785403 After X7, I can see why people didn't check it out, even after (I think?) Inafune said he got some members from the old team back, and that the game's gotta sell well to get more like it (I could swear there was an interview where he said that, but for the life of me I can't remember where it is). It's a damn shame, though - X8 was on point in almost everything it did, and it could have been a great template for future games.
