Episode 150: The Year 2040
« on: September 13, 2014, 03:47:49 AM »

Join us for this super-sized and surprise-filled episode of Connectivity!

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/connectivity/38503/episode-150-the-year-2040

Hello, and welcome to episode 150 of Connectivity! To quote Shania Twain, "Looks like we made it. Look how far we've come, my baby." Also, "Man, I feel like a woman."

We have three segments for you this week. Kicking things off, Zach, Scott and Mike host another game music segment. This week, they focus on the best tunes from the Mega Man series, with their own personal favorties as well as your suggestions. Next time, we're doing "best water stage theme," so send in your fave!

After that, Neal, Zach and Alex tear into some listener mail. You guys really stepped up this time. The guys discuss the best Mega Man game (topical!), boycotting studios and games, whether Watch_Dogs on Wii U matters, their favorite moments from the first 150 episodes of Connectivity, and more!

Lastly, Andy, Neal and Zach return with another installment of Game of the Week. This week, the guys focus on the Sunsoft-developed Ufouria: The Saga, which just released on the Wii U and 3DS Virtual Consoles earlier this summer. Is this rare collector's item actually worth playing? They'll let you know.

Be sure to click here to send us your listener mail and favorite water stage themes. And from all of us who work on Connectivity week in and week out, you have our sincerest thanks for listening and helping us reach this milestone. We really, truly appreciate it. See you next week!

WB's habit with obnoxious DLC out of the ass is bad no matter the platform.

You basically have to wait a year until superior version with every cut content in comes out.

With regard to the Mega Man music, Magnet Man isn't that out of place in MM3 when you think about it.   The first three Mega Man games seemed to have at least one track per game that seemed to be a little slower and/or were more upbeat: Elec Man, Crash Man and Magnet Man, respectively.  I can't speak for the latter games in the main series because I haven't played them enough to remember the music.

...another thought.  Since the music in the early Mega Man games were supposed to be inspired by Rock music (I agree with the people who say that Elec Man sounds like a sped-up version of Faithfully by Journey), you could probably think of the song selection in the stages as different tracks on an album.  On every rock album from that era, there was always going to be that one song that is a little different than the rest.  Just my 2 cents.
