Bonus article: Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge

Hello! The server transition is underway. By the end of the week, I hope to have the wiki and forums moved over as well. Naturally, my horrible understanding of such things is creating its share of complications. Oh well.

For now, please accept this feature on Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge, which represents the single piece of original content from the GameSpite Year Two book. I embarked on writing this retrospective with the hope of experiencing a bit of catharsis after my grandmother’s passing earlier this year, but in the end I came out with something more along the lines of an unintentional deconstruction of cathartic personal journalism. Or something. Mainly, I realized that Dr. Wily’s Revenge is a pretty crummy game and that my loved ones deserved to be commemorated in a more meaningful way. Reading back over this piece makes me feel a little uncomfortable, which I suppose is usually the case with something framed in such a personal context. Anyway, I’d say “enjoy,” but that may not be the right term.

One thought on “Bonus article: Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge

  1. Very poignant writeup. I agree that the game isn’t great, but I somehow got through it back in the day. That’s not saying it was necessarily a sign of quality, as I had so little to play that I’d pretty much play anything.

    Ironically, I also recently re-obtained the game. It’s… well, it’s pretty much as I remembered, except it, as you say, feels even cheaper than the original Mega Man.
