Let me know what the arranged soundtrack is like, I passed on picking it up for a while as the remixes I have heard didn't interest me enough to buy it. The OST on the other hand is brilliant.
I'm still addicted to endless mode though, I'm up to 436 screens!

Having now listened to the arrange soundtrack I would say that it's pretty good to be honest, for the most part! I think it depends on how much you like arranged game music in the first place really, as I've never really been a big fan.

There's a good mix of styles from rock influenced to mellow ambient dance music, and the production is pretty good.

I was a little disappointed with the Tornado Man arrangement though, as the tempo has been slowed right down compared to the original.

The original soundtrack is obviously the awesome NES style music from the game, so that was a no brainer purchase for me!

Once you get the hang of the game most of them are pretty straight forward. Keep in mind for the nearly invincible and invincible achievements you can complete a stage, save and then if you die simply reload (you have to do the fortress in 1 go though). The only "tough" schievements are the conservationist and peacekepper ones because they are so vague.

I just got Megaman X 7 for the PS2 as part of a 4-for-£10 deal.

I've just played a bit of it, but I have to say it looks and plays very Viewtiful Joe'ish to me.
Not saying that's a bad thing though!! Looks like an interesting game.

Will ShadowMan burn me at the stake as a heretic now? ;)

Play it enough and your opinion might change! For me X7 had potential and was a fun game in places, the 2D sections were mainly pretty solid and fun to play through, the graphics are very nice as well. Its only really the 3D sections that let the game down. The camera angles make it frustrating at times and can lead to you being shot/killed off screen, that and the auto lock on takes most of the fun out of the game. Still worth playing though, but I though X8 did a far better 2D/3D intergration of the Megaman series.

How tough is this one? (9 that is)
Is it hard for a normal game or hard for a megaman game? :D

Thinking of grabbing it as I'm buying a points card for Portal Still Alive.

Difficulty is tricky to gauge. To begin with I can say without a doubt you will die loads and take quite a while to beat most levels so I guess its quite hard! Second time round though if you've managed to memorise enemy patterns and such it really does become quite straight forward!

Yes, it's hard in that you'll die lots but you'll love the game all the more for it. That's how it worked out for me, at least.

I actually need to get a cushion for my room...
For those looking forward to the new "Special Stage" downloadable content next week GoNintendo has revealed the brand new boss:

Those who have completed the game should recognise him, His name is apparantly "Fake Man". Nice idea for a boss, my only complaint is his unimaginative name.
