With all that's been going on lately, will we even see the new Metroid release?
I'm curious to see where they take the plot, given all of Samus' new backstory.
What are you talking about? I meant with Nintendo denying a new Metroid in the works and Retro saying they're not working on Metroid, would we even see a new Metroid GAME.
And I'm curious to see where they take the PLOT given all of Samus' new Other M backstory.
>we could have had this
Imagine how ZSS would have looked like.
>there are more lewds of link than any other vidya character
If there was a new Metroid game announced would you like it to be 2D for the 3DS or 3D for the WiiU?
Would you like something like Prime or something new for a 3D one?
I would like a 2D one for the 3DS I guess. Using sprite art, not 2.5d graphics, that would be jarring.
Kaelyn is pretty cool anon.
A fairy tale with a bright beginning and a fiery end, I think.
Why can't Metroid and Zero Slut Samus be seperate characters
Can't we have ONE powerful male character that threatened, desperate virgins don't feel the need to degrade with porn? I really don't need to see Master Chief getting fucked in the ass.
2D for 3DS
Would love it to be pixelated instead of 3D unless they can pull off good animations with the models
Nintendo doesn't give a shit about Metroid anymore so it doesn't really matter
Fuck off. The cutscenes were the last problem other m had.
No. I did not like the cutscenes outisde of this one. What i said is that there were bigger problems in other m besides the cutscenes. And i kinda get pissed whenever people talk about how bad other m is and the first thing they say "omg those bad cutscenes!" and cmpletely ignore how they fucked up everything else.
But the broke up the gameplay like fucking crazy and they were fucking painful to watch and on top of that you couldn't skip them.
So if you ever wanted to play the game you'd have to sit through like 2 hours of character fucking shit just to play a bad game.
>And i kinda get pissed whenever people talk about how bad other m is and the first thing they say "omg those bad cutscenes!" and cmpletely ignore how they fucked up everything else.
because the cutscenes were the worst part of Other M. I can forgive the sub-par gameplay and lack of music but making some shit cutscenes and makes them UNSKIPPABLE? That will make them the worst part of this abortion
>Can we just agree that all of Other M is shit,
I am down with that
There must be fevered discussion of what parts of the game were worst.
I suggest the controls. Since they never go away. All other elements are there for only a short period of time. You can't get past the bad controls part of Other M.
>People need to acknowledge what makes Metroid Metroid.
which Other M doesn't
>Haloid was the abomination.
Then why do people like the Prime games more than Other M?
An abomination to the series implies that a vast majority of the fanbase hates it, which is the case for Other M
>A vast majority of the Metroid fanbase hate Other M
This picture says otherwise
This may make me sound like a feminist cunt but I still fucking hate Sakamoto for this. He doesn't get the right to try to come groveling to fucking feminsts like this. Samus was literally nothing but Adam's bitch in Other M. She had all of her suits' powers but she couldn't use them because Adam said she couldn't use them unless he said she could? Are you fucking serious? Oh and let's not forget how she froze up in front of Ridley for literally no fucking reason and needed Anthony to save her.
Samus was a strong female lead character until Sakamoto fucked her up with Other M.
It's a flashback to Samus being a teenager, so that kind of makes sense.
It also characterizes her as aggressively passionate, which makes sense since it's her boyfriend who's about to die. Aside from egregious ass shots and the fact that the older Samus thinks that the way to improve herself is to be a submissive little shit, it's a perfectly acceptable scene.
>any cutscene from Other M
>Railroading that would put train sims to shame.
>Redundant easy recharge missile system.
>Tons of context sensitive actions/powers.
>Flipping clumsily to first person to shoot anything but your charge beam.
>Not a single clever puzzle in the entire game.
I think the Ridley fight was the only part I came close to enjoying.
What about the fact that Samus was raised by Chozo and she heavily focused on removing her emotions and becoming a pure warrior?
She's already been through a lot of bullshit. There's no reason for her to act the way she does in Other M.
Yeah, pretty much, but the scene in and of itself is fine. Samus and her emotions is definitely a very subtle theme between II and Super with the Baby Metroid subplot, but Other M tries way too hard to focus on it. Examining the idea that Samus has problems keeping herself stone cold 100% of the time and isn't always the perfect badass is absolutely fine. Even that scene with her getting freaked out by Ridley could have worked if done properly.
The problem is that the game keeps pushing Samus down and makes her tell us what a shit she is constantly instead of showing small flaws and then allowing her to overcome them.
We don't have Samus remember when she was a teen and lost her cool and her boyfriend die because of it so we can see her learn from her mistakes and be a huge badass, we see it so Samus will accept how cool Adam is in killing himself. We don't have Samus suffer from seeing Ridley come back from the dead in order to see that even she gets scared of this fucker but she'll kick his ass anyway, we see it so Ridley can be hyped up a bit and Anthony can save her.
>Skyward Sword not being equal to Other M
I don't know why but she is the only vidya character that makes me diamonds
Nintendo didn't deny one was in the works. They said there are two styles of Metroid, Prime and conventional. Thankfully omitting you know what. They said they hope to have information in the near future and this was back during E3. It may be a while before we see anything still but they've admitted something is in the works.
>, but the scene in and of itself is fine.
No it's not, it's fucking terrible.
Any scene depicting Samus acting out of character is.
That scene is basically the equivalent of Anakin having a breakdown after killing the sandpeople because he couldn't save his mother. It's fucking stupid and unnecessary, it doesn't humanize her it just makes her annoying while destroying any mystery she had. Now we know she's not a mysterious bounty hunter raised by alien birds because that scene made damn sure we realized she was a stupid teenager who fucks up get her boyfriend killed cries about it.
I really hate the Other M mole.
It ruins any Samus porn that includes it for me because instead of fapping to awesome Samus suddenly I'm fapping to Other M Samus and my boner goes limp just thinking about all the boring droning she'd do during sex.
>The very fact that Samus had a boyfriend and he died because of her ruins the character.
You have a very strange view on things, anon.
Like I said, everything else about the scene is awful, but there's nothing wrong with introducing ideas like this when used properly. Hell, I'd argue that having a scene like this done properly is less of a betrayal of Samus' character than her relationship with the ADAM AI in Fusion. It establishes that she has, at least once, dun goofed. It's not necessary, but it can be used as a good narrative tool and establishes how cool she is now even more strongly if presented in the proper context.
It's hella cliche though, and I'd rather not have it than have it. My point is that it's not bad, regardless of whether it's good or not (it's not).
Why can't we have both? It's canon that she was raised by bird people and it's canon she was in the spes marines as a young adult. Is it not possible to do both of these things?
What's wrong? Not safe and boring enough of a backstory for you?
Chozo are fucking cool.
>The very fact that Samus had a boyfriend and he died because of her ruins the character.
>You have a very strange view on things, anon.
You failed to understand. The fact that she's normal and boring is what's terrible here not a mention of a dead boyfriend.
>My point is that it's not bad
You're doing a very poor job expressing that, you've only succeeded in making it sound more terrible.
Samus had mystery, she was interesting because they gave you enough to go on to fill the gaps of her past without filling it with terrible cliches. She was raised by Alien Birds and became a Bounty hunter and murdered entire planets of Aliens solo.
Giving us massive amounts of melodramatic scenes from her past where she acts like a typical 14 year old girl ruins this mystery.
This is also why that Manga was awful. Samus was cool in the same way Darth Vader was cool, because of the things they did now, not the fuck up teenager they were. Darth Vader isn't any cooler now that we knew he was an annoy brat as a teen and neither is Samus.
>Nintendo twitter constantly saying "Love Metroid!? ... Buy this game on the eshop that's sorta similar!" Fuck you Nintendo. Might as well say "Love Metroid? We don't, haha get rekt! #rekt"
Maybe it's just my shitty memory, but I don't remember anyone hating the manga until some people used to to justify Other: M.
I really liked it and the look it gave into Samus's past. And the Other: M ruined it like it did everything.
>Maybe it's just my shitty memory, but I don't remember anyone hating the manga until some people used to to justify Other: M.
Oh no, it was hated before Other M, not as much as Other M mind but people hated it.
Especially on /v/. You don't remember people bitching about the terrible art, shitty side characters, mother brain being made by the chozo and Samus' characterization in general.
>Giving us massive amounts of melodramatic scenes from her past where she acts like a typical 14 year old girl ruins this mystery.
Hey it's almost like you didn't read my fucking post where I said the rest of the scene is terrible and it was presented in the wrong context entirely.
In fact it's almost like you're ignoring my entire argument about the concept but not the execution being acceptable to keep talking about how "annoying" the scene was.
Knowing that Vader is Luke's dad and that he fucked up in the past doesn't make his character worse. If anything that works out in the first trilogy's favor. It's when they spend a long period of time discussing it and not using it as a way to assist the narrative that it becomes shit. Knowing that Samus was responsible for the death of someone she loved because she was a teenager once does not take away from the mystery of who she is now, or how she feels or any of that bullshit. It gives you a bit of rationale for her actions and a point of comparison, as well as a thematic point of interest when developing the plot.
If the game kept it as simple as Adam trying to kill himself to save the station, Samus remembering that her boyfriend died in a similar situation, and allowing the player to keep the past from repeating itself, it would be fine. A bit hokey, sure, but it doesn't detract from her character. It simply gives some context. The problem is Other M can't into subtlety and Samus can't shut up and stop crying.
I fucking wish. I just don't have faith in them giving a fuck. It'd make more sense for Nintendo to just be as they've always been and blind to what Metroid fans care about than to do something that may take some effort.
Still, every time they tweet about a game on the eshop and ask if you like Metroid in the process because it's similar, I want to fucking punch them in the dick. I'd rather they took the series out back and put several bullets in its head than to keep doing shit like that.
Vader and Other M would be similar if Vader broke down and cried when the Emepror was frying his son. No, he made a choice and tossed that old fucker into the pit. Samus was written horribly in Other M as was everything else.
Jesus fuck I hope you're trolling/baiting because this is unreal. Unless you're just saying all this shit as fuel for one of those "proof /v/ totally loves Other M" threads.
Wait, are you seriously defending the direction the prequels took in regards to Vader's backstory? Disregard your insistence that this is somehow a execution problem, you're seriously saying Vader/Samus are better characters because we know they were annoying petulant teens and fuck up?
Why do I even bother with Other M apologists.
>If anything that works out in the first trilogy's favor.
No, you see I read his post. He's complain about execution which I addressed, but he's wrong either way.
Any inspection of his past weaken the character and the same is true for Samus. What makes the characters work is what they do and how they act now not what they were.
>>Vader and Other M would be similar if Vader broke down and cried when the Emepror was frying his son. No, he made a choice and tossed that old fucker into the pit. Samus was written horribly in Other M as was everything else.
Are you seriously just ignoring me at this point?
I said that Other M is shit, but the concept of Samus losing a lover early in life and having that be reflected in-story when used appropriately is fine.
Samus crying like a bitch is dumb.
Samus monologueing incessantly is dumb.
Samus doing whatever Adam says just because is dumb.
Samus having to face the fact that she fucked up in the past is not dumb if used well. Other M did not use it well.
>Wait, are you seriously defending the direction the prequels took in regards to Vader's backstory?
Jesus Christ, can you people read? I said that knowing Vader is Luke's dad and he fucked up in the past is fine. You know. Like the movies tell you in the original trilogy. They give you ideas of what he did and how he fucked up, and that's used to boost the audience's understanding of him while keeping him mysterious.
>Any inspection of his past weaken the character
So you mean both Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi weakened Vader as a character, right? Because both of those movies inspect aspects of Vader's past that weren't addressed in the first movie.
However, unlike Other M and the prequels, they do so with care and don't shove useless trivia in your face. It's in SERVICE to the narrative, not the narrative itself.
>I said that Other M is shit, but the concept of Samus losing a lover early in life and having that be reflected in-story when used appropriately is fine.
>Samus having to face the fact that she fucked up in the past is not dumb if used well. Other M did not use it well.
Yes it would be as explained to you over and over but you choose to ignore.
You've yet to convince anyone of this point.
>Because both of those movies inspect aspects of Vader's past that weren't addressed in the first movie.
No we never went back into the past to explain Vader's previous metal state, it was all contained in those movies.
Vader grew in those movies not outside of them.
>Losing someone close to her in her career is a perfectly reasonable explanation for why she became a cold, no nonsense bounty hunter
Yet having this explanation weakens the character, prior to that moment she had mystery now she does not. And since we already know she was raised by bird this is unnecessary because that's an even better reason why she'd be distant and cold and it didn't require pointless cliche melodrama.
Could you give a single reason beyond the vague "but you can't talk about her past" nonsense?
Does her being raised by the Chozo ruin her character?
Does her being feared as "The Hunter" by the Space Pirates ruin her character?
Does having sentimentality for small creatures ruin her character?
All of these things tell us more about who Samus is and what she does based on past actions, not current ones. Letting the game inform you that she lost a person close to her as a young adult is no more a stain on her character than telling us she's a Galactic Federation Vet or that she was an orphan raised by bird things. What stains it is having her blab and bitch and cry like a shit and using it in ways that don't either show us why she became who she is or reinforce who she is now.
>No we never went back into the past to explain Vader's previous metal state
Instead we had other characters tell us about it.
It's the same fucking thing, the problem with Other M is that Samus presents herself awfully. When done with tact this plot point isn't even a problem.
>Yet having this explanation weakens the character, prior to that moment she had mystery now she does not
Except there were several other points in her past explained by previous games and instruction manuals. Did those also weaken her character? Is Samus just shit unless she's a completely blank slate?
Link to the Past's Link watches his uncle die in front of him and SS Link has a history with Zelda that informs their relationship with each other? Does this ruin these Links somehow? Does establishing events not controlled by the player inherently just shit on the ambiguity of the heroic mime in and of itself?
You've missed the point, this is about the character, not their past.
We get glimpses in those other examples but we never see how she thinks. That scene flat out tells us who samus is.
>Instead we had other characters tell us about it.
Which maintains the mystery.
>It's the same fucking thing,
It is not.
>the problem with Other M is that Samus presents herself awfully.
No the problem is she presents herself.
Knowing what makes Samus tick ruins Samus, to let the viewer know the mind of Samus completely destroys the character.
>>Knowing what makes Samus tick ruins Samus, to let the viewer know the mind of Samus completely destroys the character.
So Super Metroid and Fusion are character assassination. Samus tells you all kinds of stuff about herself and how she feels in those games.
>Is Samus just shit unless she's a completely blank slate?
No, but the most you should ever get is ambiguity. Why did Samus save the animals in Super Metroid? It was up to the player to decide when they did it.
The stories of Samus' past were always ambiguous and this is why it worked.
I used to be of the mindset that Ridley was unplayable. However, the insanely long time that Sakurai has spent teasing Ridleyfriends, the fact that Ridley has never been namedropped even when there was a perfect opportunity to do so, and the trophy theory from the april direct is making me start to think otherwise.
they deleted this? but it wasn't explicit.
I guess they are just crappy, like all the time.
No because both games maintain enough Ambiguity about who Samus is. We don't have the context of her past to see why she makes the decisions she does, we only get to see the decisions she makes now.
>That scene flat out tells us who samus is.
Weren't you saying this wasn't a problem of execution? That's really all it is. It's how they handled the scenes that made shit like this bad.
If Samus herself wasn't being a little bitch and basically did the same things in that flashback, sans talking, there's no problem. It's established bad shit happened. The end. It does not control or define her character, but rather adds another piece for the player to digest.
>That scene flat out tells us who samus is.
Once again, execution.
>Knowing what makes Samus tick ruins Samus, to let the viewer know the mind of Samus completely destroys the character.
Good thing the concept of flashbacks, or even just references to past events, and getting inside the head of a character are not mutually exclusive.
>We don't have the context of her past to see why she makes the decisions she does
But we DO in Fusion's case. Samus VERY EXPLICITLY tells the player how and why she feels like she does for ADAM. It is literally a scenario ruled by her past actions with absolutely no ambiguity.
And, for the umpteenth time, the concept of Samus losing someone in the past is not mutually exclusive to her also telling us who she is and why she thinks. In fact, Fusion does THE SAME THING, just with Adam instead of Adam's brother, and you're claiming it's different even without considering the execution of it.
I don't know if there is something wrong with me but why are you all obsessed with how she looks. Like I get it she is hot but why does it matter so much or why are you excited so much about her.
Make me understand.
I KNOW IT'S A DRAWING, BUT I WANT TO FUCK IT
I want to fuck her while she's in the power suit
Because people judge by appearances. If people see Samus as beautfiul, they'll instantly go on the warpath as her being slutty, sexualized, an insult, etc
This is Beta Ray Bill. He is a hideous monster with a claws and a face like a skinned horse. He is the most evil looking fucker around. So when he appeared in the comics and not only beat Thor but was revealed to be a noble and just soul worthy of weilding Thor's hammer, the fans threw a fit. This wasn't what a GOOD hero looks like.
Samus is the same, just replace "horse monster" with "actual beautiful woman"
>Weren't you saying this wasn't a problem of execution?
It's not, and I've made it quite clear. When you expose that ambiguity, not matter how you do it it'll always be weaker than the mystery. Hints and glimpses are fine because they can then further that mystery, but once you've shown the hand you can't un-show it.
Fusion still maintained this mystery, she tells you part of her past but we don't get to see in her mind, we don't see the emotion the mystery is still maintained, not until Other M do we actually reveal this fully.
>the concept of Samus losing someone in the past
I like how abstracted you've made this now, you just keep back pedaling. First it was about her having a boyfriend that died, now it's just anyone who died ever. Again this is something we've already had, as we know Samus was raised by birds and all the birds are dead. Yet we never needed a scene explaining this in detail to us to show us that Samus lost someone. It was implied but not explicit. No matter how you'd execute on fleshing out that story it'd be weaker than the ambiguous knowledge that she was both raised by birds and the birds are now dead.
Things being ambiguous or not is ENTIRELY a question of execution. How the fuck can you not understand this? Is English not your first language?
>but we don't get to see in her mind, we don't see the emotion
This is execution.
This is how you choose to reveal the information at hand.
>I like how abstracted you've made this now
Because you keep fucking reaching for abstract concepts like "oh it's bad because it defies the idea of an ambiguous protagonist". How am I supposed to argue from the bottom up you dipshit? Jesus fucking Christ.
>First it was about her having a boyfriend that died, now it's just anyone who died ever.
How does whether it's a father figure or a love interest affect the points you've been making at all? How? I'm bringing it up like that because it's relevant to your argument.
>It was implied but not explicit.
It was made BLISTERINGLY EXPLICIT in Fusion that Adam was her commanding officer and he died. It wasn't even fucking implied. She TELLS US THIS. DIRECTLY. SHE SAYS THIS TO THE AUDIENCE OVER THE COURSE OF THE GAME.
Your argument doesn't make any fucking sense. Somehow knowing that a boyfriend died hurts the character, but knowing that her surrogate alien parents died doesn't. Somehow being told, explicitly, by the protagonist about Adam is less "ambiguous" than a scene of a guy who is barely established dying. What the fuck is wrong with you?
>not only beat Thor but was revealed to be a noble and just soul worthy of weilding Thor's hammer, the fans threw a fit.
They do that every time a legacy character beats their predecessor in every way in a misguided attempt by the writer to make the legacy character badass. Everybody hated Kyle Rayner for the same reason. Bill is a cool guy but of course fans were going to hate him initially with that introduction.
God I hate Samus's design so much in SSB4 she looks generic as hell and like a fucking bimbo.
Her Brawl design seemed simple yet smart: A generic sexy white woman but not overdone
I expected it to die around 50 so i didnt join
This a good metroid thread orr?
Its early so I'm guessing no?
Wait, so how is
>Adam died and he was real important my life and super cool and respected me and we even had a catchphrase it was rad.
more ambiguous than
>My boyfriend died and I didn't save him and I was super upset about that shit.
so i googled searched the samus comic to find the artist and ended up on a forum of people posting videos of girls wetting themselves.
Samus had the genes of a Blond Urkaine woman pre Other M
They gave her shit burgerglap genes recently which is why shes Short, a candidate for sag tits and has early stages of skin cancer
>Samus in SSB4 sucks, she looks generic as hell
>Her Brawl designed was better: A generic woman
Whoa man, why are you getting so mad?
>This is execution.
No it's not, you either do it or you don't. If you don't it's left up for the player to fill in the blanks.
>in Fusion that Adam was her commanding officer and he died
We never got to see her emotional state, she relayed the story but we weren't in the moment, we didn't get the how and why and they left it up for us to guess how she felt and how it happened. A scene where Adam or a surrogate Adam is then unneeded as we already have enough information to get on with the story but left us with enough ambiguity about the character to maintain the mystery.
>Samus isn't the hero of Metroid games
>He just keeps coming back to try and score with his childhood crush
>While Samus is an evil villain who fucks every other guy in front of him
I'll save this new art for next thread then
>This is execution.
>No it's not
>We never got to see her emotional state
>they left it up for us to guess how she felt
...Isn't that exactly a matter of execution? Like, choosing whether to give the audience more or less detail? Isn't it entirely possible to have a flashback and explain this information without giving us a big dumb speech about how Samus feels about it or explaining exactly what happened?
You realize those were placeholder graphics right?
They're far, far too simplified to have ever been intended as final design artwork especially for the main character.
They just hurried and made a quick placeholder animation sprites per each frame so they could go ahead and test other aspects of the gameas they were working on them
Otherwise they would have to wait for the finished samus sprites to be made before they could test or do anything else with the game.
A lot of bosses also had sprite developments. Beta screens of Kraid for instance show him looking really crude and different
Once you have the flashback you've had it. No matter how well you execute on it it'll be worse than just leaving the blank there.
You can choose how much you want to divulge before that point but once you've got balls deep into a flashback the execution no longer matters because either way the mystery is gone and the play no longer gets that scene of wonder about the character that makes them so interesting.
This is why i feel like they secretly appreciate metroid
Its their most interesting Sci-fi tittle.
I think FZero counts too but they probably think mario kart fills the Race space
So wait...flashing back to something like Samus saluting Adam's grave would be less ambiguous than Samus telling the audience a long spiel about who he was and why he's important and how he died and that sucks?
I'm not arguing in favor of flashbacks in Metroid games, but I'm just saying that your idea of "ambiguous" doesn't make sense. A flashback doesn't necessarily mean things are always more solidly established. Sometimes it allows for things to be MORE ambiguous. That's why a lot of mystery movies and games rely on flashbacks instead of actual explanations, it can be a lot more hazy and is up for interpretation.
Samus with an texan accent
When I was young, Metroid meant an armored space suit declaring "KILL ALL METROIDS." Then I learned that was a girl and said "Oh, cool." My mental image of Samus for 15 years was a silent armored figure who went around blasting aliens. That she took off her armor at the end was mostly irrelevant to me, since I only ever saw her head most of the time.
Now Samus is some blue suited space slut and everyone draws porn of her. It's depressing to have watched this transformation occur.
Keep that headcanon going strong like the rest of us
Wait until the next Metroid comes if samus isnt back to normal then just repress and keep that headcanon at 100% anon
It'll al be fine
Oh sure, you can be ambiguous with a visuals, it can be a bit harder since words by their nature are more ambigious than the actions themselves, the difference between saying someone died and watching someone die, but it's possible.
That's not really what we're talking about here though, we're talking about relieving the mind of the character and removing ambiguity where we once had it through flashbacks. No matter how you execute on this, it'll always be weaker than the mystery.
>not supporting your own homegrown XXX comic artists that don't rely on disgusting animangu faces and body types
You people literally disgust me.
>That's not really what we're talking about here though, we're talking about relieving the mind of the character and removing ambiguity where we once had it through flashbacks.
Actually that's what YOU'VE been talking about, he hasn't since the start
>Cameltoe in a motherfucking metal suit
Is this from Deviantart or something?
Extremely unhappy. Samus used to have her own unique thing going. I don't want her to just be Catwoman/Black Widow in blue.
When I was young, Metroid meant an armored space suit declaring "KILL ALL METROIDS." Then I learned that was a girl and said "Oh, that's so much cooler." My mental image of Samus for 25 years was a beautiful green haired woman who went around blasting aliens. That she put on armor was mostly irrelevant to me, since I knew what she really was inside it.
Now Samus is some american designed clunky first person shooter and everyone screams about porn of her. It's depressing to have watched this transformation occur.
His style is ripping off another western artists anyways. I forgot which one, but apparently a professional, aka actually working in the industry.
Might be cool, but more likely would suck
>You obviously have no idea how to write a good character
I think you've made it blatantly obvious you don't. By your logic we should see snippets from every important moment in Samus life because that's going to somehow make her a more interesting alien killing bounty hunter.
Her backstory was fine, leave it alone, it doesn't need your pointless expansions filled with cliches and melodrama.

>hurrrr rule 34 is old so it no longer applies
The zero suit was the worst thing to happen to Samus and I have literally not played a single metroid game.
What a shame.
>I have literally not played a single metroid game
You should. It's a great series, and outside of Smash she's pretty rarely in the Zero Suit.
I agree, the standing at a grave thing is a dumb idea.
It's still an example of how flashback =/= bad/worse than text.
You stop defending my argument, he'll just keep adding more bullshit that nobody's saying because he can't take things in degrees.
I know that "lore" has essentially become become a meme around here, and that this is a thinly-veiled pr0n dump thread, but I am legitimately interested in seeing how Nintendo goes about moving the Metroid story forward in the future. Metroid is actually Nintendo's most story-driven franchise, probably. Every main series Metroid game has moved the plot forward in different ways with long-lasting repercussions. The extermination of the Metroids and birth of the baby in Metroid II led directly into the plot of Super Metroid, which in turn led to the semi-plot heavy Metroid Fusion.
Since then - regretably - the few Metroid games we've gotten (Prime and Other M) have been interquels. Not saying I want another plot-heavy Metroid game, because that's never been a good thing in the past, but I'd like a game set in the chronological "future" of the series with a strong initial concept that sets up for future games without being intrusive - like Metroid 2 and Super Metroid did. I want to see what happens now that Samus has Metroid DNA, dammit!
>now that Samus has Metroid DNA
Bad news for you.
>Sakamoto: "When she absorbed the core of the SAX (the perfect condition of Samus), she basically reconstituted her genetic condition. She didn't recover the physical damage of her amputated suit, but she did recover her genetic condition."
it means Samus got permanently disfigured due to the surgical procedure to remove the parts of the suit that glued on her body during the X parasite incident.
