why is this game named after an enemy that appears in the last level of the game. that's like if super mario bros was called "bullet bill"

It’s a portmanteau of metro, a connected series of tunnels, and Android, a humanoid robot (what Samus was going to be originally). The name got adapted to the jelly fish because it has to mean something.
It’s rather ironic when you consider metroidvania. A portmanteau of metroid and castlevania the latter of which is another portmanteau of castle and transylvania. Four words in one.
I love Metroandroidcastletransylvanias.
>I love MetroTrans
>t. Metroid Prime 4 fired writer
Ha! I never knew that!
Actually it was Android+Metro, so it should be Antro.
because its absolutely ebullshit retard
even more ironic because metroid actually started the genre and castlevania didn't
with other genres, it wouldn't be "wolfendoom" but rather "turokdoom"
metroidvania was coined to refer to castlevania games that played like metroid instead of like classic castlevania
it was bastardized to refer to the whole genre because of idiots and apparently metroidlike didn't feel right for games that were mostly melee based
no thats actually true
technically 'castle' is completely left out here, so you could call it three words in one, but it is still a portmanteau of two portmanteaus.
technically metro is not a word, it is a prefix
transylvania is a word derived from the roots "trans" (across) and "sylva" (forest), coined in a time before the word portmanteau (which is also a portmanteau) existed
in conclusion, with the various segments not fully utilized, metroidvania means of a city-like android forest. this is obviously referring to the game nier automata, which predates both hollow knight and metroid dread by several years
bullet bill is a good name
I want to lick Samus's sweaty abs.
I want to suck her ginormous cock
Better video game name than "Super Mario Bros." to be honest.
cause Metroid is the bad guy, like Sinistar
Because it's inspired by a movie named "Alien"
bullet bill appears since the third world you stupid retard, he doesn't debut in the last level
Rank the Ridley fights
Samus Returns >>> Other M >>>> Super > Fusion > Zero Mission > Prime 1 > Prime 3 > Metroid > Prime 3 intro
why is he red in the art but purple in game
why would they do that
Make him more striking. JP Ridley kinda blends in the background.
he's near dying in all the art, retard
The entire reason Samus gets sent to Zebeth is because Mother Brain is going to make Metroids to conquer the universe. They're kind of a big deal.
>make metroids to conquer the universe
>the universe is mostly space, near absolute zero temperature
>metroids are only weak to cold
>a gigantic brain conceived of this plan
Nintendo are very smart guy
A)They get dumped on nice warm conquerable planets
B)Only the babies are weak to cold, older ones are merely vulnerable to it.
>A)They get dumped on nice warm conquerable planets
How? This would require some kind of transport vessel. The metroids themselves, being a source of energy, are completely made redundant aboard any kind of vessel. A more efficient dissemination plan would have been to make a principal unit that is self-sufficient in both travel and reproduction, considering the vast distances in time and space that are required.
>B)Only the babies are weak to cold, older ones are merely vulnerable to it.
This doesn't solve anything. Do you want to conquer the universe or don't you?
>Why isn't predator named after the guy instead of the thing they fight end
>Why isn't alien named after the girl instead of the thing they fight at the end
>Why isn't Terminator named after the girl instead of the thing they fight at the end
>Why isn't Fire emblem named after the main character instead of the thing they fight over at the end
Well they do solve that fourth one in Engage, since it's both.
Why can't fire emblem crawl?
why isnt it called frodo baggins
I love the atmosphere of the original Metroid
Too bad the actual game is shit
learn how to jump, niqua
It's named like this because Hollow Knight is better than the whole Metroid franchise btw
the difference is dread was an utter mediocrity that got the usual nintendo bonus because fanboys are so starved for metroid they can't recognize when something falls flat of just about everything that makes the series any good
Hollowknight fucking sucks. It's genuinely worse than every other game in the genre. I would legit rather play castle in the clouds than HK. It might genuinely be the most overrated game on Ganker to date. I can't think of a single reason why it wouldn't be worse than every single Metroid and Castlevania game out there.
>popular game is bad
>in fact, it's literally the worst of its type
you could just say you don't like it next time. going this far makes it sound like you just have absolutely terrible taste or you've played a whopping total of 2 games so your basis for comparison is also nonexistent
>popular game is bad
The same could apply to the bait picture above itself, dumbfuck. The only selling point I see endlessly jacked off is that the game takes more time. Making me re-fight bosses but spongier and spreading out the upgrades thinly as fuck feels like shit when even hentai games pace their games better. What else does the game have? Fruity little bug people with lore I don't give a fuck about? "Difficulty" that ends up about as deep as this?: https://youtu.be/AQZtdXLWHk8?t=536
Yeah a game so popular that it's only purpose seems to be to shit up other threads and never actually get its own.
he's right though. hollow knight is shit
hollow knight plays like a cellphone game and runs on any potato so tis an instant 10/10 for most zooms
Metroid sounds cool retard
