Time to beat up some robots in Mega Man X2, on Stevetendo!

It feels like a good time to get back into Mega Man games on the Stevetendo show, so tonight, we’re playing another one of my favorite SNES games, Mega Man X2. Mega Man X2 was the second installment of the X series on the Super Nintendo. Mega Man X2 brought the Maverick Hunters into the series. The player needed to defeat them to save Zero, who is seen in the introduction stage of the game being blown to pieces.

The benefit of saving Zero is that you don’t have to fight him later in the adventure. I’m not sure if this playthrough will be a “Mega Buster only” run but that does add an extra challenge to the game. I know Mega Man X2 like the back of my hand so this should go a little better than the Mega Man X4 playthrough but there could be controller throwing. Set to go live at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET, see if we can help Mega Man X take down another form of Sigma!

Time to help Mega Man X save Zero and take down a fresh batch of Mavericks!

Shackers who want to join in on the fun can head over to the Shacknews Twitch channel, where you can tune into the Stevetendo show every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

If you can't make tonight's show, you can watch Wednesday nights at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. We’ll be continuing our Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask playthrough. There will be two new playthroughs starting next week so stay tuned!

If you want to support the Shacknews Twitch channel with more than just watching the great programming, then I suggest you subscribe with Prime Gaming. It’s simple, painless, and best of all, it’s free. Subscribing allows you to support all the great Shacknews Twitch shows, not just the Stevetendo show! Join in the fun as we try to complete these great video games and talk some sports. If you've watched the Stevetendo show, you know we check the scores during the livestream. If I could I would talk Jets, Devils, and Mets all night but that’s only a portion of what you come to the show to see.

There's a lot to do during tonight's stream. We have to defeat Sigma and check the score of the Devils game. As I've mentioned prior, start thinking of some game suggestions as we'll need different games to play as we get closer to the holiday season. The Stevetendo show isn't the only great show the Shacknews Twitch channel has! Make sure to check out the Shacknews Livestream schedule every week to see what other great entertainment the Shacknews family has to offer!
