  1. i am not enjoying metroid dread that much, i really loved super metroid back when i played it (around the 360/ps3 era iirrc)

    Recommend me another metroid cause dread is boring as af, already played and finished the first prime.

    • Because Prime 1 and Prime 2 were released in Japan under the New Play Control!! series. Rather than release them as standalone titles, they bundled them with Prime 3 into the Trilogy version outside Japan.

    • They got Wii de Asobu/New Play Control releases. We ended up getting a bundle of those two and Prime 3 probably because of New Play Control’s pretty shit sales.
      Weird because you think Nintendo would release Trilogy there to tempt Japanese gamers to finally give the series a spin

  2. What’s the deal exactly with the Space Pirates? They seem to be a unified, highly centralized nation with clear command structures, industrial and scientific outputs, and the capability to produce and field weaponry more advanced than the Federation, but we’ve never been given a name beyond "Space Pirates". Why are they called Space Pirates? What’s their actual, official name in their own tongue? Who’s the founding species? What’s their cause? Who rules them? Pretty much anything you can share would be appreciated.

    • The Prime games?
      The first two are GC games so you just map the buttons accordingly, for 3 though it’s obviously an issue. The solution is to just download Primehack and play the entire series on Keyboard and Mouse.
