DISCUSSION TOPIC

This week, Captain Spike and First Mate Slagkick take a look at Keiji Inafune’s latest release, the much maligned Mighty No. 9! They examine the development process from the promising Kickstarter campaign to the multiple delays; the troubles of developing for multiple platforms using one engine; how extremely high expectations set players up for disappointment; and the merits of the game as a successor to the Mega Man series.
