        Corpius took me around 30 attempts but at least there isn’t a billion projectiles to dodge all the time. I didn’t expect this to be so fucking hard.

      It’s pretty easy to move out the way of the flame while still spamming shots. You can also sometimes just aim straight for the mouth with missiles and cover quite a few of the projectiles. The bone nails and belly balls can be destroyed with multiple regular shots from what I recall. Dodge the triple spikey blast with morph; time the staggered spikey blast to jump up on to them before they puncture the wall. Prioritize getting the counter.

      Took me like 20 tries but I beat it.

      This game is full of casual-filters so I don’t expect the average Boomer/Zoomer to be able to beat it.

        >>checkpoints out the ass so you can immediately retry
        I wonder how much my game experience was actually affected by how I didn’t use a single checkpoint. I am pretty sure it improved my overall experience a fair bit but I don’t know.

        I was worried that retries might have added to the in-game counter or that they in the game might have even had a death counter.
        So I just reloaded from the last save every time. Save rooms are really frequent in the game anyway.

        Honestly. The check points do make the game worse. I kind of wish the check points weren’t a thing in hardmode at least.
        And the EMMI rooms, while I agree are basically a non-issue, were actually a bit scary when you knew that getting caught could send you back further than the EMMI room entrance.

          I don’t understand why everyone says this game is so hard. I beat it last night and I died to a couple of bosses one time and the final boss like two times.

          Didn’t even know you could do that, that’s cool. I just dodged the attacks though, its not THAT hard.

        I wouldn’t say they are "hard", but they can definitely be frustrating if you don’t get the patterns down. I have never felt like bosses pulled some RNG bullshit or one shot me out of the blue, they always have the same phases, highly readable tells, and patterns. Some require quick reflexes but nothing has been twitch heavy so far. the quick checkpoints are necessary due to the high amount of deaths every player will have trying to play through the game. I have a feeling there would be a lot more crying about "artificial difficulty" and "unfair bullshit" if they didn’t have the checkpoints.

      The first time robot chozo showed up I thought it was a parry puzzle and not just missile it to death. I think they’re bad at showing when you’re actually hurting bosses in this game.

        Metroid has always been a challenging action game series. Nintendo even labels Metroid as action games. Just because there’s platforming and exploration with a brooding atmosphere doesn’t mean it’s not mainly an action game when you’re shooting things 90% of the time.

      cavemans aren’t boomers. That said, let me highlight the fact that Kraid gets to abortion punch samus if she dangles in the grapple tile for too long in the second phase. That feels great after jobbing hard for all these decades.

      In the second phase, you can just stand and shoot stuff he throws at you to recover your energy.
      When it’s full, go up and deal some damage, then go back down and heal again.

        Kraid is the only returning boss in the game but he’s pretty different from his other incarnations. In-game I think they do reuse the Chozo robots too much.
