Mega Man X3, known as Rockman X3 (ロックマンX3) in Japan, is a video game developed by Capcom for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). The game was originally released in Japan on December 1, 1995 and later in North American and PAL regions in 1996. It is the third game in the Mega Man X series and the last to appear on the SNES. Mega Man X3 takes place in a fictional future in which the world is populated by humans and intelligent robots called "Reploids". Like their human creators, some Reploids involve themselves in destructive crime and are labelled as "Mavericks". After twice defeating the Maverick leader Sigma, the heroes Mega Man X and Zero must battle a Reploid scientist named Dr. Doppler and his utopia of Maverick followers.
Mega Man X3 follows in the tradition of both the original Mega Man series and the Mega Man X series as a standard action-platform game. The player traverses a series of eight stages in any order while gaining various power-ups and taking the special weapon of each stage's end boss. Mega Man X3 is the first game in the series in which Zero is a playable character in addition to X. Like its predecessor, Mega Man X2, X3 features the "Cx4" chip to allow for some limited 3D vector graphics and transparency effects.
Uploaded to The Completionist on June 20th, 2014, Mega Man X3 is Jirard's least favorite game in the original X trilogy. He said the reason that he had completed it was because he had already done three others, and to keep up the tradition, he would do this one as well.
Jirard finds that the game doesn't really add much to the series, and feels like a DLC add-on to the Mega Man X series. He still finds the game fun, but not up to the quality of the X games he had previously reviewed. However, he loves the new giant armors in certain stages. He's also fond of many of the armor upgrades, though the armor chips leave a bad taste in his mouth, due to punishing the player and preventing them from getting maximum power. Plus, the plot becomes too predictable even for Greg.
Through-out the review, Jirard sometimes talks in a deep and harsh voice, often towards Greg. At the end of the review, it is revealed that Jirard has been taken over by a Demon. Demon Jirard transports Greg to another dimension, where Greg finds the real Jirard playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, setting up the next episode.
