If you are a Megaman fan, this mod is definitely going to get you hyped! This is not a review, but rather a preview, of givemhell’s Blockman Legends mod.
Before going any further, let me explain: this mod is not complete, nor is it functional. I believe that this mod has potential to become something great, and the textures in it so far are fantastic (pretty sure they are ripped – if not please let me know and I will correct this!). It is my intention to get some exposure for givemhell’s project.
With that said, there is not much information available currently. So far what we know is that this mod will have all of the guns from Megaman Legends:
The guns can currently be equipped through the use of creative mode:
They currently do not fire bullets, but this should be coming in an update soon. Hopefully the creators of the mod will go the extra mile and add some of the same effects from the original game to these guns, rather than making them simple ranged weapons.
Adding in all of the guns from the original game is a great endeavor in itself, but it seems that the team behind this mod is not going to stop there. Some blocks have already been added in, in the vein of Megaman:
My only problem with this mod is that it is currently only for 1.6.4 – most mods these days are moving up to 1.7.10, undoubtedly in preparation for the imminent release of 1.8. Blockman Legends would do well to follow suit!
In short, this mod has the potential to become truly epic. Head on over to the download page, give the early release a try, and support givemhell’s team with some encouraging words and feedback. As this mod progresses and becomes playable, I will try to cover it again.
