I'm on a roll folks.

OKAY. SO. Metroid. The series, characters, etc.

Discuss.

Also I'm gonna say it now. [tornado fang]ing Meta Ridley.

I loved the first battle with him in MP3. That [parasitic bomb] was awesome.
I liked MP1 best. I have trillogy, so ive got the Wii controls. i must say, they make P1 a lot easier I think. (especially with the Morphball jump making the ball puzzles easier)
Dont like MP2 much for some reason- and 3 is pretty cool too.

MP3 was the only Metroid game to not have an underwater section.
Except the first one, but that hardly counts...

Was Prime Pinball underwater at any point?

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

Brilliant series. I can't decide between Super and Prime as my favorite, but I love pretty much all of them (except the original and Return of Samus... o-O).

And I still can't mockball for my life.

You know, Chozo ghosts always seem to scare the [parasitic bomb] outta me for some reason. when you walk in the room and it goes dark and quiet for a second before the music starts up, then the ghosts appear, that part is freaky.

Super Metroid and Zero Mission are my favourites of the series, by far.

As for the Prime games... well, the first one is my favourite of the bunch. Prime 2 had it's moments, but I wasn't fond of the ammo count in any way or form. The third one was too much on the linear side.

Just a little stupid fact, they [tornado fang]'d up the Wii port of MP1's Graphics when porting Wii Controls over. The little things that the Ice and Plasma Beam do (Ice has mist come off of it and freezes when charged, and Plasma has embers come off of it.) Are missing. But that doesn't really matter when you can still enjoy awesome new control scheme.

Come to think of it, I actually own EVERY Metroid game (Save Pinball and Hunters, along with a copy of the original (But I have it on Zero Mission anyway, so meh.).)

Super Metroid is easily my favourite.. and dare I say it, I liked Prime 3 more than Prime 1.

Agreed. NONE of the other games so far had an ammo count with the beams. Why just this one? (Unless I'm missing something.)

I managed to grab the 75% ending on Prime 1, only because there were a few scans I missed...

I think Metroid 2 had little pools of water, and there were big regions full of magma you could dive into until you beat enough Metroids.

You missed Items, because Prime doesn't give endings based on scans.

Metroid Prime 2 has a much better beam system than the other Prime games because you actually have a reason to switch weapons. A reason which doesn't involve those damn doors. If I opened you once, I'm still going to be capable of opening you next time I'm back. Just stay blue instead of wasting my time, srsly.

If you disagree with me you are wrong and also probably a communist.

PS if the only reason you don't like ammo in the game is because previous Metroid games have not had ammo you are a double communist.

I liked MP1 best. I have trillogy, so ive got the Wii controls. i must say, they make P1 a lot easier I think. (especially with the Morphball jump making the ball puzzles easier)

This series is damn amazing. That said, I seem to have a thing for the dark horse in the legacy, Prime 2. Something about that game really caught me and won't let go. While I do share a few criticisms with those who have them against certain things in the game, it's currently tied with Super Metroid as my favorite Metroid game.

He's talking about the actual guardian boss from Prime 2 here. I actually really liked that one myself. XD

Looking VERY forward to Other M.

I could never get into the Prime games. If nothing else, they, along with pretty much every other FPS now-a-days, only succeed in making me sick.

Hopefully, Sakamoto, his dudes and Team Ninja can stand to deliver. Been far too long since Samus and I got together.  8)

Would be nice to know how they got Ridley onto the B.S.L.

I'm not talking about that Spider Ball guardian, I'm talking about the Spider Ball Guardian. Who is also a Spider Ball guardian.

God damn Metroid is deep.

The one in MP2, in the tiny arena with the acidic air(?) and the boss bouncing all over the [tornado fang]ing place being all LOLOLOLO YOU CANT HIT ME BUT I CAN HIT YOU like an [dark hold]. I hated that boss so much on hard mode.

Liara T'Soni: It is a luxury resort with an... exotic edge.  Azure is slang for a part of the asari body in some places on Illium.
Shepard: Where?
Liara: The lower reaches, near the bottom.
Shepard: I meant, "where on the asari body?"
Liara: So did I.

I still fail to see the point in having an Ice door followed by a Plasma (Or Wave) Door, In the same Hallway. Theres almost no Blue Doors later in the game.
