Default 5MMM: Mega Man & Bass

One of my favourite things to do on my birthday is update 5MV. I didn't manage last year, but this year, not only do I have something, I have something that's been ten years in the making!

Not long after I posted the fiver of Mega Man 8 back in 2010, I started on the chronological next game in the series, Mega Man & Bass. As the title suggests, it's an oddball -- sort of an "8.5" game (the internal code even calls it that) -- and it posed an interesting challenge for what I do. See, you choose to play as Mega Man or Bass at the start of the game and then you're stuck with that character throughout. I could've done one fiver for each character, but they share most of their plot and all of their bosses. So I chose instead to stage it like a team-up. I've been chipping away at it gradually (okay, very gradually), and this year I finally got it done!

Here's Five-Minute Mega Man & Bass. Just don't read it on a GBA screen, it won't fit right.

There's an idea, hacking a GBA to have wireless internet and a browser...

Sorry, but I can't comment on the fiver. I've done very little MegaMan gaming, and most of my knowledge of the games comes from Bob and George, which never covered this game.

I miss the early days of webcomics.
mudshark: Nate's just being...Nate.
Zeke: It comes nateurally to him.

mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really -- it's just a bad idea.

Sa'ar Chasm on the forum: Sit back, relax, and revel in the insanity.

Crow T. Robot: Oh, stop pretending there's a plot. Don't cheapen yourself further.

Voice of Reason: Just shoot it. It's a wimp.
Mega Man: Huh. Was that my Voice of Reason or yours?
Bass: Yours, idiot. I have a Voice of Testosterone.

And it just gets better from there.
