Mega Man 11's boss doors do away with a long-running series staple

Anyone who's a Mega Man fan knows that one of the best parts of a Robot Master battle is jumping through the door and freezing in mid-air as you pass through. It's been a part of all mainline Mega Man games, yet for some reason it's not a part of Mega Man 11. In the clip above, you can hear my real-time reaction to finding that out. That's not rehearsed, and I had no idea that that element was removed for Mega Man 11.

Yes, it's a stupid bit of gameplay that doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Still, it's something Mega Man fans have been doing for years and years now. While I wouldn't review Mega Man 11 poorly for not including the feature, I really hope to see them add it back in for the final release.

I thought the same thing, but the gameplay doesn't feel nearly as bad as I thought it would from the videos.

The more I see of this game, the less I want it. I know it's a very minor issue and that they are making an MM game for modern times and younger gamers, but a reason I would get this is mostly for nostalgia. It's not a deal-braker, but it sure is a big minus.

Guess I'll just try out the demo and see.

I've never played any Mega Man before this demo, but from what I've seen in gameplay videos it [the screen freeze] looked really clunky.

This is a legit downer...

Seeing gameplay footage of this, I'm not sure how good it'll be. Reminds me a lot of Mega Man 8 instead of either 9 or 10.
