Stiq Figures, July 29 - August 4: Mega Man 6 OST edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Mega Man 2 is the regular favorite of the NES Mega Man games, but that tends to lead to some pretty gross oversights. In this instance, we'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that Mega Man 6's soundtrack was pretty freaking great.

Whether it was the peppy gallop of Tomahawk Man's theme or Centaur Man's relaxed, scale-based theme accompanied by chimes, every track got us in the mood to blast some evil robots to bits. Switching between Rush suits to punch our way to E-tanks or to just fly over anything remotely threatening was a great way to switch up stage progression, but the boss battles stood as solid extensions of Mega Man's traditional rock-paper-scissor power cycle. Mega Man's modern portfolio of work might be limited to retro sequels and his Super Smash Bros. U appearance for now, but let's not forget that he's been in amazing games other than Mega Man 2, okay?
