Well this one looks difficult for someone that has never played 3 before. This will be interesting lol
12 Jun 1:11 2018
Update apparently this version of the emulator works on this machine, so finally.
22 Sep 15:26 2018
Can i do those no damage achievements in the boss rush?
22 Sep 21:11 2018
No, they have to be in the robot master stages. The boss rush has its own achievement.
21 Oct 6:04 2018
Note: For players using RetroArch & RAlibretro, make sure player 2 inputs are disabled before you start the set. I know for a fact that my achievements won't trigger if you have them enabled (perhaps the ones made by Jaarl & Scootaloo too).
28 Feb 18:01 2019
Long and for all the wrong reasons a difficult game. I can not damage the last boss. What to do? Of course, jump on his head using Top Spin! It's so obvious!
23 Apr 13:43 2019
That's... not how to effectively beat Gamma... though I share your frustration with Top Spin, it guarantees you get hit, and it's the weakness of THE most annoying boss of the eight!
14 May 6:55 2019
- unlocking achievements with savestates!? >> are "worthless" and non valid in my opinion... it should be automatically [off] for = everyone! period!
27 Nov 18:30 2019
Ok......If you don't want people to use savestates, take out "soft mode" and leave only "hardcore mode" enabled in all emulators.This discussion is tiring.
18 Jul 8:39 2020
Wow! My first Mega man series mastered game. What a tough set.)
18 Jul 15:22 2020
Congrats. I made a bunch of those hard ones so I know how tough they were to get when I tested them.
28 Jul 13:56 2020
foi foda. Na run final a minha casa inundou. Mas gg!.
29 Jul 22:20 2020
Mastered! Thanks for the awesome (And frustanting) set!
1 Aug 5:31 2020
tbh everything was ok until docs wood and quick
27 Aug 0:51 2020
MASTERED! Three down, three to go for the NES collection.
27 Aug 2:50 2020
Don't worry, the latter 3 NES games have extremely easy cheevos in comparison to the former 3.
17 Sep 22:00 2020
Minor Nitpick for the achieve set:I understand why rush marine is 3 points while shadow blade is 2 points (add up to 5), but why is both needle cannon and rush jet 5 points each? (it adds up to 10) there's a bit of inconsistency here
17 Sep 23:53 2020
I'll do a minor points revision for that and some of the other ones since those were done before the 400 point cap limit was removed.
23 Sep 2:57 2020
Ah okayI just finished the set a few days ago, I still like the game but dang this set was definitely the hardest Mega Man one so far (overall, and not counting any Bonus sets)
23 Sep 4:12 2020
Haha, I know the ones I made were pretty tough but hopefully they weren't too frustrating. I'm happy the 400 point set limits on RA got removed because this one & many others deserved way more than 400 points given the effort. Congrats by the way.
