No Interest In Battle Network

Had a couple people inquire about the recently released Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collections and I might as well address it here to get it out of the way.

No, I did not buy either collection nor do I plan on it.

It basically boils down to a lack of interest. Battle Network was never something that caught my interest back in the day and even today, it's not something that I'm interested in trying out. The fact of the matter is that it's a style of play that doesn't quite appeal to me and also when it comes to this particular franchise, there's a certain style of Mega Man game that I prefer to play... if only because it's a style of game that this series has often excelled at delivering.

Ironically enough, I only have one game linked to the Battle Network series and that's the Gamecube-exclusive Network Transmission, which was more of a traditional Mega Man side-scroller... seemingly made by people who have no fucking clue on how to make a traditional Mega Man side-scroller. Did this one side game sour me on an entire subset of the Mega Man franchise? Nope; the style of game that Battle Network presented didn't appeal to me. It did, however, sour me on Network Transmission as a game on its own merits... or lack thereof.

I still have that game somewhere... but don't expect a video on that any time soon because... I really don't want to play that game.
