Hey folks!

Decided to illustrate the cast of one of my all-time favorite games, Mega Man 3. I may have this on hand at Dragon Con (where I’ll be just a regular attendee but I’ll have some prints with me that you can buy if you stop me and ask about them), but I’ll definitely be putting it up on my Etsy store afterward. :)

I personally think Mega Man 3 is the best of the series. The bosses are quirky, the music is great, and the addition of the slide feature improved Mega Man’s mobility greatly. It was before the ability to charge sort of muddied things up, and since I’m a compulsive charger, I never get to hear the end of that damn charging noise, so 3 doesn’t have that holding it back. Also, this is the game that introduced Rush!

Great things do come in 3s. Megaman 9 is my favorite of the Megamans, and its cardinal number is 3 squared! In addition, Jewel Man is the best robot master, and his DRN number is 69, which is 3 times 23, both of which end in 3!
...not to impose my opinions, of course, I just happen to feel really strongly about this.

Megaman 3 was rather good . Playing it on Wily Wars for the Sega Genesis it became awkward compared to the NES original. The graphics were better but the music became awful and clunky. I'm not even touching the controls and poor they were for the port. So, if you're going to play 3 better grab the original and superior NES version.

Don't forget more stages because of those Doc Robots harnessing the powers of the Mega Man 2 bosses. MM3 felt like it had the most content out of the entire series.
DrewGreen's avatar
Yes, I totally agree with you! All that extra value. It's almost like playing MM3 and 2 in one game.

Top Spin is the lamest power though.
DrewGreen's avatar
It is the absolute worst. I can't even figure out how to use it without getting damaged.

And you have to use it against Gamma, the peacekeeping robot.

Wouldn't it had been awesome if you could get the MM2 powers from the Doc Robots? Why stop with eight powers?
DrewGreen's avatar
Probably because that power selection screen is kinda small. (Yes, I realize there are about a dozen things you could say in response to that to prove me wrong, haha.)

Eh! Ten games and they still haven't broken tradition.
