      I'm 31, anon. I don't think I qualify as a zoomer.

      I was expecting this to generate the same kind of speedrunning autism that Super did way back when. I guess the industry and culture are just different now.

      Also who knows when there will be another 2D Metroid, Prime 4 notwithstanding. I want to enjoy it as much as possible.

        dread has more registered speedruns than fusion and zero mission combined. it's not the industry-shattering landmark that super was, nor has it been released and picked apart for over 25 years. you're just older than you were before, and the communities are in different places now (discord etc)

            No way bro. There is an optimized route with the teleports that doesn't involve sequence breaking that allows you to get the under 4 hour time. I unlocked the whole gallery without sequence breaking at all.

            The highlighted file was me at the final boss.

        It's because the game is too fluid. Practising one frame tricks in Super isn't so bad because of the lower frate rate, but doing the same at 60fps when the entire two hour run depends on it is just asinine.

      I still replay Super, Zero Mission and Dread on the regular. Prime 2 as well. These games are just so tightly made, polished, and terse enough for me to replay. There are fewer Metroidvannias I could say that about, either they're too big (e.g.: Hollow Knight) or don't have enough for me to keep replaying like fun movement or cool shit (recent example of this I've played recently is something like Momodora 4).

          Fuck that game seriously. It was overall good, but the combat was a snoozefest pin poke spam. Because it had the """soulslike""" experience and was so successful and popular, everyone has been trying to copy it making most of the metroidvania/castletroids over the last few years absolutely soulless

            It wouldn't even have to be scifi themed exactly like Metroid. Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth had the same exact aiming system as Dread and a bunch of magic bows with neat properties. Some were seeking, some were like shotguns, some were high velocity with piercing arrows, but they were all secondary weapons to your swords, spears, etc.

            It's been over a decade since I last played Aliens Infestation but I didn't know what people saw in that game. All the different marines were just palette swaps and functionally extra lives with maybe some different dialogue and the end of it all was a damage sponge boss that abruptly cuts to the credits. Felt like there was a lot of lost potential.

              Anonymous

              its boring because the fast travel is just a big long tube instead of a real metroidvania. and you dont even get to 'fast' travel through it until a point in the game anyway so you just awkwardly platform througha tube. plus the game has a ton of backtracking with no payoff. like in other games youll have to progress through an area without a high jump and its a challenge. then you get the high jump and when you backtrack again its super easy but enemies might fuck you up. verge didnt really do anything like that so you just platform the same screens over and over again.

              definitely worth playing but id say its very safe to drop if you dont like it.when i heard it got a sequel i had 0 interest. weird because i was super hype about the game from trailers

              Are there any modern platformers that are more Metroid like? Almost all of them seem to focus on melee combat for some reason.

          Metroid prime 3 was terrible and the ultra beam a ridiculously retarded mechanic.
          It was so overpowered that you didnt have to make use of any gamemechanic like stealing the enemies shield.
          You can just burst it with megabeam while depleating your own health without any kind of punishment.
          The button tap to balance your overload ultrabeam meter up was peak cringe aswell.

          I like how the game changes when you get speed booster. It's the point where everything opens up, both in the intended sequence and sequence breaking.

          Upper Burenia and Ghavoran being full of shinespark puzzles and grapple walls was great, it felt like you'd got a huge upgrade to your movement options, and the game really makes you feel the difference.

      secondly, you cant look at a game by its time. most people dont 100% complete games. I would rather play a game thats short and sweet, and then replay the hell out of that game, getting better and better

        Where are they even going to take the plot from here? The Chozo/metroid plot was just finished up, so it'll just end up being another "Ooh, the villains want to kidnap Samus for her metroid DNA!" plot.

        I hope they redo the metroid suit if they ever bring it back. I like the concept of a monster girl suit, but it just didn't really tick off feeling like a metroid to me.

                It wasn't purged, it was just put back "under control" in her system from robe's DNA.

                It was the equivilent of having an allergy shot but not getting rid of the underlying allergy. She still has metroid DNA, its just not raging out of control in "Drain everything dry and have Vore instincts" mutation mode.

                I wonder if the series is building towards some super soldier arms race. Samus already had Chozo DNA, but now you have Metroid powers on top of that, which proved to be extremely powerful. In fact it was such a powerful combo that Raven Beak decided to clone Samus herself instead of trying to make Metroids from her DNA. Maybe this leads to the feds or some other faction ejecting their troops with alien DNA.

    >The music was largely forgettable and bad (a crime considering the series' reputation)

    >Mechanics from Super Metroid (a game from 1994) STILL didn't return (can't turn off equipment you want, no secret weapon combos, no charge beam multi-bombs e.t.c.)
    >Game felt far too linear and on-rails
    >Major plotholes with the X and Metroids (these new Spanish devs couldn't even be bothered to open a wiki?)

    I could go on. Considering all the time that's passed and all the new Metroidvania type games that have come out over the years, it was very disappointing and just rehashing the same old things again.

        That is a terrible idea. The Chozo were so fucking broken in lore that some didnt even need bodies and went to a higher plane of existence. Saying that Metroids were based off of something else goes against everything that the Chozo were built up to be.

              He said making them Gaidens would seem like a copout, but also mentioned elsewhere that the 2D Metroid and the Prime games are separate things. If there's a point of convergence, I heavily doubt that a mainline entry will be compromised for the sake of background content from Prime.

                You're making a big leap here as though someone denied the games have a place in the timeline and then use a little reference to bolster it. If Prime 4 has Ridley and he doesn't end up in the Mecha-suit by that game's conclusion, this idea gets dumpstered as well, so that's something to look out for.

But there's no fucking way he should have been able to get withing even a solar systems distance of the planet without getting shot down, even before you ask how he would have dispersed the bio-weapon to mutate them and kill them all effectively with a tiny ass human ship.

                Oh, once you ping them, they do seem to gravitate to you. That webm I posted shows a moment where I engaged it. It zoned toward that area, but when I left that space, it reversed course toward my direction, I'd assume to be kept on my tail as a result. I also figure that E.M.M.I. are connected to their zones, so in patrolling when alerted, perhaps they recognize that a door has been opened.

Regardless, after you get some experience with your move set, the E.M.M.I. generally don't pose too much of a threat, so you might just zoom past them.

                Yeah, I'm not saying it's unfair or anything, just that I felt like I was racing them rather than trying to sneak past them- in the first real zone I waited a solid minute or two for it to ever leave a range from which it would hear me move, and it just didn't. So instead of actual stealth, I just ignored every ping of it seeing or hearing me and planned my route to outrun it.

                Fair enough. In my case, I initially just tried to use the invisibility to platform the short distances I needed to other map segments or to a door. The short span and the proximity added to the tension in some of those situations. I can imagine taking a corner for the long term and hoping to platform conventionally unimpeded once it leaves to be frustrating once you realize that chance is gone.

                That's a completely valid strategy. Guess I just wasn't viewing the stealth quite right, oh well.

    it's a really good game but it's missing memorable tunes, the music isn't bad but it just blends into the background too much, and there's not a whole lot of dread

    i want a stupid excuse to have ridley in the next game, like the galactic federation sifted through the debris of the B.S.L's station destruction and found parts of his and the SA-X's DNA on like a rock, brought them back to life and now they're out of control

    Aside from ZM, it's the least innovate metroid game ever made. Couple that with meh visuals and music it's not hard to see why people stopped discussing it while super and prime still get buzz. Oh and the whole shitting up the level design with EMMI areas too

    All three of the Prime games take place between 1 and 2. This is the only timeline that makes sense because 2 directly flows into 3 and none of the Prime games can take place after Super based on logs

      There seems to be an implication that the time between Samus defeating Mother Brain and her mission in Metroid 2 to eliminate the remnants is short. It seems more and more odd the more games are released in that time period.

        Size does not equal strength. Reminder that IRL Kaiju would be killed by artillery from half a continent over before they could even understand what was happening.

        Samus is fucking brutal in Dread. She is completely out of fucks to give at this point.

          And that's what made her interactions with Quiet Robe so compelling...to me, at least

        Spring Ball is surprisingly missable, I never realized it was a thing until my third playthrough of Super. If you get the hang of bomb jumping you don't need it at all, I'm still surprised in retrospect I completely neglected to grab it

      The bomb jumping in ZM is fast as fuck too, albeit mashy. You can do quite a few sequence breaks with it.

        To be fair the GBA's screen was dim as FUCK, the raw colors of the games were deliberately raised up a lot to compensate. Without any adjustments I suppose bright colors already somewhat befit ZM but I tend to prefer a desaturation filter for most games.

    I dislike the lack of personality of the map and how everything is connected using tramway and teleportation.

    The story and lore hasn’t been good since Super. Once the game is done, no real reason to go back to it. Maybe in a couple years.

    Really great game. Really hope the same team is working on a sequel right now. If they can get it out without the cut corners of Dread, it will be fantastic. Also, I hope we get more time with the grapple beam before the space jump

    Replaying Hunters campaign on a whim. I think a lot of people overlook Retro's attention to detail. The game has a lot of faults, but within the scope of what a DS could do, they really stuck to that caliber of immersion the main Prime games gave.
