It's a shame...a real damn shame...that the forums had a "reboot" in April.  So for those of you who didn't get it, this is an April Fool's joke.



Here are the full credits:



Stages: JonLeung, osrevad, Grizzly, Revned

Concept: JonLeung

Sprite/Portrait Edits: JonLeung

Title: osrevad

Stage Select Screen: osrevad

Artwork: bustin98

"solid-x.com" Web Site: bustin98




Since many stages were based on chunks/palette swaps of existing stages from the Super NES Mega Man X games, credit is also due to Revned and Geminiman for mapping those games.  Geminiman in particular submitted a lot of maps during the project.



I really had a lot of fun doing the sprite edits (a keen eye would notice which Mavericks were used, and that there is at least one from each of the first 6 Mega Man X games), but I really love bustin98's work.  He understood what my concept was from the get-go.



The deadline was kind of tight (we literally finished this on the evening of March 31st), so future projects with a deadline we'll start a lot earlier.  It's a sad fact that the topic that showed the progression of this project was lost, but I believe it was two months of work, greatly accelerated in the last two weeks of March.



I'd kind of hoped it would've received more attention, but in the end it turned out better looking than I'd imagined, so it was worth it.



I'd like the other mappers to chime in on how they felt the project was, and what everybody else thought of it.

Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks

For this month's "Maps of the Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to our Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks (J) (GBA) maps.

Capcom is no stranger to cross-overs.  There are several games where the title itself makes the cross-overs very evident, such as Marvel Vs. Capcom (and its sequel), Capcom Vs. SNK (and its sequel), SNK Vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighter's Clash (the two Neo-Geo Pocket Color games), and the Japanese game Namco X Capcom.  Prior to Marvel Vs. Capcom, their Street Fighter series have also seen cross-overs with X-Men and other Marvel heroes, but the Mega Man series has its share as well, all with Konami.  Capcom's Mega Man Battle Network 5 can be linked to Konami's Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django for a strange cross-over involving Shade Man - and who can forget Mega Man and Simon Belmont (of Konami's Castlevania) teaming up on Captain N: The Game Master?

Capcom's Mega Man (X) crosses over with a Konami property again here in Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks.  The story is essentially a simplified version of Metal Gear Solid's, with Mega Man X in place of Solid Snake.  The gameplay (much to the chagrin of MGS fans) is more closer to the Mega Man X series' blast-them-ups than MGS's stealthiness.  The bosses are Capcom's take on MGS's FOXHOUND unit, if they were Maverick Reploids.  After all, they share the same style of names (they're all named as "[descriptor] [animal]"), and this was probably the inspiration to even try to mix these two completely different games.

The Mega Man series has been a popular one here on VGMaps.com, and for this second VGMaps.com Atlas Project, a group effort of five people worked hard to map out a game...that isn't even available outside of Japan yet.  Will we ever see a North American or European release?  The official web site, http://solid-x.com still reads "Coming Soon to the Nintendo Game Boy Advance"...keep your fingers crossed, MG(S) and MM(X) fans...

So to recognize the team effort in making these maps, JonLeung's, bustin98's, Osrevad's, Grizzly's, and Revned's Mega Man Solid X: Guns Of The Mavericks maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps of the Month for April 2006.

But surely if you're a Nintendo fan, you'd recognize which "cat" it is.



Though it's not really a cat...
3109  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 21, 2006, 12:16:44 PM
I might as well give it to you, since you clearly know which it is.  The game doesn't say that its name is Mechbeth (oddly similar to the planet it's on, Macbeth) so I guess most judges would accept that description.



I would've thought the first one was infamous and classic enough, though.  I saw it in a very recent IGN article, actually.
3110  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 21, 2006, 10:13:13 AM
Series-wise, Inty is correct (except for his second guess of #2).



But his answer for #4, while technically correct, could use further clarification.  I suppose the problem is that its name isn't mentioned in-game...



I suppose I should've looked more carefully at #7 (as in, looking at Japanese names), or should've specified I meant English names, but I was definitely looking for Bonsly (Pok?mon XD), Munchlax (Pok?mon: Destiny Deoxys/Pok?mon Dash), and Lucario (Pok?mon: Lucario And The Mystery Of Mew) so you've got that answer.

...that have samurai.
3112  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Mother 3 on: April 20, 2006, 08:37:49 PM
Explain the opening to me, because I can't read Japanese.



The main character gets up.  Tries to leave his house.  His mom makes him get dressed so that he can leave now.  Talk to some old guy.  Walk over, where a friend shows you how to kick a dinosaur.  o_0



After a few kicks of the T-Rex that likes to play dead (actually, I think it's also a dash but it's like a kick when you do it right next to something), a big ant comes up.  Then you fight the ant?



Then aliens attack?  What?



Actually don't explain it, it's funnier this way.  *kicks dinosaurs*
3113  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Movies You've Seen on: April 20, 2006, 08:13:39 PM
I took a course all about Kurosawa in my last year of university.



Seven Samurai is one of the big ones.  Rashomon is fairly well-known.



I'm surprised at Revned's grasp of films.  I did, however, see Caligari.
3114  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 20, 2006, 08:03:31 PM
You mean Rumble Pak (no "c"), and while it sounds like you know which game it is, this is a quiz about a specific character.
3115  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz on: April 20, 2006, 07:29:53 PM
I'll admit 2 is an awkward one, but it's not Donkey Kong.



I've edited the post to show who's the first to get the right answer.
3116  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Do the polls work? on: April 20, 2006, 06:38:34 PM
Actually it IS Crono, but the game is Chrono Trigger.



I've always wondered if people are blind when they do things like misspell things or confuse Roman numerals and numbers.  But then again I'm probably a visual person and they are textual and remember what they read, not what they see.

1. He's not mistaken, but insists that he is.

Inty: Error, from Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link.  He simply stands in a house and says "I am Error."



2. He wasn't published by Nintendo at first, but became a boss character in a Nintendo game.  Now he's a good guy again, or at least when he was on TV, with a slightly different name.

Inty: Lolo / Lololo / Fololo, of the Adventure Of Lolo & Kirby series



3. This Koopaling's airship has no propellors.

Revned: Wendy O. Koopa, from Super Mario Bros. 3



4. In the very first mainstream console game to feature force feedback, a special way of defeating it resulted in the largest vibration possible in the game.

Inty: Mechbeth, who is diverted into an arms factory, or some other explosive building, from planet Macbeth in Star Fox 64



5. What is the name of the character who reports no problems at the beginning of the blatantly-named sixth area of a game?

Inty: Caiman, from "Area 6" of Star Fox 64



6. What is the name of Miyamoto's dog, both in real life and in a game?

Inty: Pik, as seen in Nintendogs, and Pikmin was named after it



7. There are actually more than 386 different species of Pok?mon.  Name at least three Pok?mon that are not (or are not yet) numbered.

Inty: Bonsly, Munchlax, Lucario, various Japanese ones, from the most recent Pok?mon games and movies, also technically acceptable: the "glitch Pok?mon": Missingno. and Huh?



8. Adult import model Francine Dee has this creature tattooed near her nether regions.

bustin98: Mew, the original "secret Pok?mon"



9. Din is to Chattur'gha as Farore is to Xel'lotath and as Nayru is to?

Revned: Ulyaoth, from Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem - other names refer to Zelda goddesses/Oracles and the other Eternal Darkness "Ancients", corresponding by colour



10. This Hunter's name is half of the North American title of another Nintendo-published game for the same system.

Inty: Trace, from Metroid Prime: Hunters and the other game is Trace Memory, which has other names in other regions



No contest here.  Inty got 7/10.
3118  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Do the polls work? on: April 20, 2006, 02:47:38 PM
Well, they found you.  One per line.  Tsk tsk tsk.



Now you're going to tell me that you probably spell "Game Boy" as one word, do you?  I really hate that.
3119  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Why so many names, Intanos VI/Inty/Chris/ResR? on: April 20, 2006, 12:02:08 PM
I play female characters in fighting games.  Probably because the game designers and game artists are mostly male, as would be gamers of this genre, they tend to make them leggy.  This usually means longer-reaching (and often impressive) kicks.  They also tend to be agile, faster, and more aerial, which helps since I tend to be offensive in fighting games.  I'm not very good at even blocking (don't even ask me to try parrying), so thankfully they're typically smaller (in certain respects) or skinnier.



I don't identify with any of them enough to choose their name as my own, though, but that's just me.
3120  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / RE: Why so many names, Intanos VI/Inty/Chris/ResR? on: April 20, 2006, 11:21:24 AM
If Terra is a Final Fantasy VI reference (the "Esper" part seems to confirm that), plus names that end in "a" tending to be feminine, does anyone ever think that you're a female?



There is/was a guy on GameFAQs called Celda.  (His name had nothing to do with Zelda: Wind Waker...I remember when Wind Waker's cel-dhaded style was revealed and the whole controversy erupted, he stepped into the conversation and I jokingly said, "hey, it's The Legend Of Celda", deliberately poking fun at his name.  I don't know what made him name himself that since it predated Wind Waker by quite a bit, but my own usage of that term was the first I heard of it before it became somewhat widespread.)  Anyway, they all thought Celda was a girl.
