Certainly not just you - I waxed lyrical about it too (and rambled on about other stuff), albeit on his artist forum thread instead:

I haven't played the game yet but when I listen to this song, I imagine someone being forced to fight his best friend, even though he doesn't want to. Just like Rockman, who doesn't really want to fight but feels it is his duty to do so. Some people might call this "emo" behaviour but eh. Emotional situations call for emotional songs.
By the way, for those of you who are guitar players, is that the pentatonic minor scale at 1:00 onward?
