      Hollow Knight is one of the most dull games I've ever played
      It's one of those "It gets good after 20 hours!" games but for the most part you're walking around smacking defenseless beetles with a butter knife

      Pros:
      -excellent combat, best 2D metroid has ever been. Parries are still too big of a factor but flash shift makes fights way more fun
      -great movement, aside from the lack of same side walljumping (RIP) samus controls wonderfully
      -good boss design
      -paced well, little to no filler
      -story held back from sakamoto's retardation from the previous metroid games...until the last 20 minutes
      -fun to find sequence breaks

      cons:
      -environments don't stand out, the schizophrenic design of jumping through cold, hot, emmi, and normal zones means no area stands out, there are also two chozo "ruin" areas. It doesn't help that constant teleporters/trams/elevators are thrown into the mix
      -railroading, even with sequence breaks in place, it's limited in what you can do because the game has "checks" to make sure you hit certain story beats how it wants you do
      -EMMI are a shitty concept, stealth and chase was cute with SA-X when it was a few 15 second encounters but it's obnoxious here by the time you get to the third EMMI, it doesn't help that it's hard to "dread" these things when you just respawn almost at the same place you died
      -poor OST, I don't think I need to explain this one
      -lack of good new upgrades, the only good one is flash shift. Cloak was largely used for a mechanic that shouldn't have been in the game, spin boost and cross bombs are the definition of filler abilities, spider crawl and storm missiles are slight variations of existing upgrades from the past
      -uninspired regular enemy designs

      7/10, good game could be better

      EMMIs also needed kill animations that didn't end in 1 second

      I thought HK was better after my first playthrough of dread, but dread is just so much fucking faster and the movement is more satisfying

    • 2 days ago

      Reminder that the times are self submitted, and the dread one most likely uses the in game clock, which doesn't count deaths.
      "Hollow" knight is also an apt name, because it's 7 hours of content stretched across 27 hours of game.

        does hollow knight include deaths? Speedrunners are smart enough to use real time for most games, but I also wish more games had an in-game timer

        *Movement feels great and fluid although I'm undecided about whether it's appropriate for Metroid because I prefer tanky Samus rather than agile nimble zero suit-feeling movement but undeniably just in general without concern for appropriateness the movement is fantastic.
        *General combat, enemy variety, enemy placement is much improved from previous Metroid games, rooms actually feel substantial and you can see the thought put into enemy placement in some areas.
        *That flash shift powerup is really neat.
        *Boss combat and boss fights are really good, final boss is amazing.
        *General presentation of the game is impressive, it looks really nice, lighting is good (entering the map rooms with no lights on is one of my favourite moments in the game), backgrounds are detailed and lend a lot of character to some areas like Ghavoran.
        *EMMIs are a genuinely fun gimmick that shit me up, somehow it produces scary close encounters a lot more reliably than pursuers in Resident Evil and feels like a better realisation of the concept. The AI sometimes makes me laugh also.

        *Level design is too guided for my tastes. It's always propelling you forward along a predetermined path and although that path isn't technically "linear" in the sense that it bounces you all around the game world, the way it artifically closes off previously visited areas and always puts the path ahead literally right in front of you removes some sense of exploration and discovery.
        *I'm not a huge fan of this annoying game design trend of cutscenes or pseudo-cutscenes being triggered every few minutes just by walking into a room although that's more of a gripe with modern games in general than just this and the cutscenes that are in this game are high quality.
        *Music is mostly forgettable although Cataris has no business being so good. The best tracks in the game are the ambient ones like the eerie music that plays in the very first level, they should have made the entire soundtrack ambient.

        >Cataris has no business being so good

      Call it "tendie cope" if you must but I have never viewed this image as a point in Hollow Knight's favor. A big part of Metroid's appeal is the games are short and highly replayable and based on the couple hours of it I did play and didn't really enjoy, this only gives me the impression that Hollow Knight is a bloated slog that I was right to drop.

        Same, I got to the cliffside and I dropped that shit, I despise how the path forward increasingly becomes more and more obscure because the maps are not streamlined and upgrades are purposefully put all the way on the other side of the fucking map so you spend 20 minutes walking back (And another 40 lost) and then repeat the same a dozen times, that's not gameplay, it's just filler.

          That's not really an argument on a game's quality. I could buy an Assassin's Creed game on sale for very cheap and get like 100 hours of "content" out of it, but I wouldn't enjoy it very much. Meanwhile I played through almost all of Dread in one day but I was having a blast the whole time, and I've beaten it 4 times total. I'd say Dread was more than worth the $60.

          That said, I also enjoyed Hollow Knight a lot and have played it twice. I just don't understand the need to pit them against each other as if the world isn't big enough for 2 metroidvanias with very different takes on the genre.

      There is no point to backtracking in this until you have all the upgrades, the game is designed so you can run straight through the main story in a fairly intuitive manner, just wait until you get the power bomb, then go back for everything.

        Yeah not only that but the upgrades aren't worth getting, there are no hidden abilities, and you pick up like 4/5ths of all energy tanks just along the normal route of the game. Missile +2s aren't really motivating. In Super Metroid you always felt like you might find an energy tank or some ability you hadn't found yet since you wouldn't have them all before exploring.

              Super Metroid at the time had one of the best soundtracks in gaming even compared to most soundtracks on PC (at least with Ad Lib, some games had MT-32 support and they could sound better, but that was expensive). Technically it was a marvel for how good music in games could be at the time. As for the content itself, I say it's some of the best of its platform

      I know exactly what you mean. would you want a remake of super in Dread's engine and controls? It would make the gameplay less skillful but would probably still be fun as fuck.

        Ehh I don't see why not, I always have the "remake doesn't remove original" mindset so even if it's shit, it's not like the original just disappears. I would be interested to see what they did with it and how they handled stuff like the same side wall jumping. Although honestly right now I just want to see more brand new games and less remakes in general.

                Not that anon but I think it's neat on paper but weak in execution. Neat on paper because it would be a good way to shake up gameplay in theory. Weak in execution because all it really amounts to is 1-2 hours of total linearity depending on what playthrough you're on. Like it doesn't add anything in that sense because what they do otherwise is just give you a linear path. It just delays the good stuff that is typically introduced in your first 15 minutes of playing Super Metroid.

      I think EMMIs have to be overused to make that cutscene with the final one more impactful. Feels so great that they go from being a looming presence in the game to getting rekt with Samus "bare" hand.

        I was more referring to the fact that you'd end up going through every emmi zone 3 or 4 times before you could actually take them down. Also, I get why they immediately had you fight an X infected chozo (so you could notice the difference in the ending of the fight) but I really wish you could actually fight the final emmi as a legit boss after absorbing some of its power.

      Funny how this shit isn't over at all because sammy has a metroid trigger and might be a hair clipping away from yet another metroid crisis.

    Speaking as someone who didn't play Super until 2018 and didn't play Fusion or Zero Mission until earlier this year, Dread is really fucking good, but doesn feel a little too linear.

    Granted I didn't 100% the map but I also felt like there wasn't really anything all that exciting to discover in optional places unlike say the Castlevania games.

    dunning kroger thoughts I have on otherwise solid game:

    aesthetics and music are pretty meh. There's a few instances in the boss themes where the campy trumpets are at their height where it has a brief flash of something but that's about it. looks like a grown up ratchet and clank game.

    I like the idea of emmis and for what they were I mostly enjoyed them, but the mechanic feels halfbaked and they're all pretty much dealt with in the same mindless way. the most efficient way to navigate the areas when they're active is making a mad dash for an exit, 3/4ths of the time you won't even be threatened by them. When you kill them with a mega charge shot or whatever you just make a dash for the longest flat platform and ready your aim, repeat until successful. The last emmi kind of shows some potential for more than that but that's it.

    more subjective, the combat was good, but I couldn't help but feel it was kind of static in the way you'd lock into place to aim, dodge and repeat. Wish they could have found some sort of option that was more conducive to run n gun besides trying to shoot at full sprint.

        I read in an article that MercurySteam's project managers forced devs/artists to remove basically half of the game. apparently they planned to have twice as many cutscenes and boss fights. We got a 10/10 game but it's really just half a game thanks to retarded managers/project leads. Those are the same gays who put themselves front and center in every MercurySteam picture. The short guy with grey hair. As soon as the game was done they fired a bunch of devs and didn't even include all of them in the credits

    I think Itorash and the area preceeding it was rushed. I'm not dead set against atmospheric boss only areas but I've always thought Tourian sucked and Itorash was just tourian without the Rinkas.

    >Fusion: Mechanical area of SRX, Ridley, the return trip where you see something weird is happening. Final mission, cool boss fight and that's before you even activate the self destruct
    >Zero Mission: Admittedly the stealth section could have been better but at least the game doesn't just teleport your ass to the final boss when you get the final suit
    >Samus Returns: the baby the baby the baby. Literal pre ship bonus boss because why not?
    >Dread: Emmi dies to cutscene fu, rushed to a 2 room spaceship where Adam dumps most of the plot on you. Cool fight but the planet explodes right afterwards because reasons while apeing Super's rainbow beam the whole time. Apparently all this was because the devs wrote themselves into a corner with Samus having the ability to succ everything to death so they just that the planet exploded 5 minutes later the end.

      I have problems with the ending but Itorash being two rooms isn't a big deal to be tbh. And the hyper beam is less aping and more contextual because of course the hyper beam is how Raven Beak was able to contain the X parasites. The planet exploding made no sense whatsoever and was pitifully stupid. Raven Beak letting Samus get the jump on him was the worst part of the game and I want to slap whoever directed that scene.

            >Raven Beak is shown to be incredibly arrogant
            But not foolish. He contained the X, defeated an emmi, bested Samus the first time, his plan to unearth the latent Metroid abilities of Samus was completely right, and then he beat Samus again. I do not see him standing there admiring his defeat of Samus. I see him throwing her into the nearest cell to get his plan going.
            >It's perfectly in character for him to gloat at that moment
            He literally has never gloated in front of our eyes.
            >He didn't know she was gonna literally turn into a Metroid
            He knew she had the energy siphoning ability. Don't defend a dumb scene. Remember the scene in DMC4 when Nero is bashing Dante's face in with his fist? All they had to do was rip off that scene but have Samus turn Metroid, catch RB's first, and then lunge at him. Him standing there while she powers up just doesn't do it for me man. It never will.

              Throw her into a cell? He's choking her out and trying to fucking kill her dude. He says "You no longer serve any purpose . . . It is because I can now clone an army of the most powerful Metroid of all... Samus Aran" and then tells her to close her eyes and rest. These are not the words you say to someone you plan to keep around. And then when the light goes out in her visor and she closes her eyes, he thinks she's dead.
              >He literally has never gloated in front of our eyes.
              I would consider his last line before Samus goes Metroid to be gloating. It's "Power is everything" which is basically his catchphrase, and he's just calling himself powerful.
              >He knew she had the energy siphoning ability.
              Yes, and we see her trying to use it several times while he denies every attempt. And that's why he holds her at arm's length when choking her, so that her hands can't reach his head. Her powerup happened in like 2 seconds and it caught him off guard while also giving her a tremendous boost of energy. I don't think it's a dumb scene at all, I think it's great.

                God you're retarded. Yes, this is a video game. You have to suspend your disbelief slightly. If this played out as realistically as possible, Raven Beak would have lasered her damn head off as soon as he had her in the choke and she was helpless. Great ending we have there. I could call your proposed ending just as dumb if we're going by your standards. Why would Raven Beak punch Samus? He has a laser cannon and tons of other weapons that would do much more.
