I'd agree with that. But to each his own.
Given the title of the game, perhaps it would be more correct to simply use some of the original storyline... Just my six-pence though.
It has been a long while since I have played a Megaman X game, so I can't give you a scenario using specific characters. I could throw out a scenario though.
- Megaman has been hired to go deep into a resource base that has a wide variety of energy supplies. Unfortunately, the area is extremely hazardous, so he has been selected to find, or create, safe passage for workers on land to go down and extract the materials.
From here, you can have the player play as Megaman X, exploring the mine, eradicating enemies, etc, etc.
- Megaman makes it to an end room. Megaman was never hired, but instead, tricked into going deep within the mines. He is apprehended, and the culprits takes bits of his armor, and his data, and create an alternate Megaman. Megaman, after being rescued from the resource base, must fight and destroy the alternate Megaman.
