Original Thread: Metroid Prime Megathread: "Any objections, Ridley?" "Ahhhhhhhh!"



In this thread, you will see:
- Slowbeef bumbling through Metroid Prime: Corruption with only his pal Diabetus and a rotating guest to save him!
- Pokecapn skillfully recording a stream of Metroid Prime Trilogy
- Diabetus exploring the wilderness of Metroid: Fusion
- Vicas showing us how competent people play video games
- Maybe Metroid Prime Pinball?
- Maybe other games?
- This image, which was one of the best things to come out of 226 pages of the previous thread.

You'll find all sorts of links below, but for now, let's not break from tradition (I fear change) and go with an OP for our current game!

The Prime trilogy ends with a game with a lot of poorly thought out decisions. It's supposed to be pretty good, but I dunno. I mean let's look at the facts here:

Cutscenes: Metroid with voice-acted cutscenes? I guess as long as they don't run on too long or go into ridiculous territory, it might be okay. Why do this, Retro? What next, do we get Samus's backstory spelled out in excruciating detail? A token black character? Ridley as a baby? Okay, that last one might be stretching the joke too far.

Weird Controls: I know it's a Wiimote, but you don't have to stubbornly adhere to any sort of protocol. Just because Nintendo deemed it on high that you have to do gimmicky motion stuff, isn't it more important to match the controls to the gameplay? Plus some of it's a little inaccurate, and I end up throwing out the grapple lasso whip thing when I may not intend to; it's a good thing that's not mapped to anything important like a finishing move or dodging.

A Non-Nintendo Developer?: Look, Retro, you guys did good with Prime 1 and... anyway, yeah, fuck Other M let's just cut to the chase here.

What to seriously expect:

- Me, incompetently trying to juggle a Wiimote, a nunchuck, coffee, and a cigarette. It's kinda retarded when I switch to Advanced controls in Video 5 and even moreso that I brazenly chose Veteran difficulty.

- Diabetus, playing the role of expert - or at least competently keeping me on track. This actually might be more in line with a regular LP than the previous two. But I doubt it.

- A pretty great new control system, and very pretty graphics and very cool things and why the fuck won't Sakomoto just die and let Retro do all the Metroid games from now on and ahhhhhh

On a more serious note, some light Other M discussion is inevitable, but please don't turn this thread into a series of black spoiler bars. If you wanna seriously debate some of the in-game stuff, take it to the Other M thread in Games.
