Shall he slide?

I’m tweaking the movement to correspond to Mega Man 2 in speed, terminal velocity on the y-axis, falling rate, etc.

One thing I always hated in Mega Man 2 (which was remedied in sequels to the game, including MM 9, which was based off of MM 2) was the way Mega Man slides after you release the movement keys.

So, to slide, or not to slide?
