It's just that Retro's idea of the metroid universe is intrinsically different than Japans, at least post Zero Mission.

I still say the "metroids are new" and "mother brain is Samus's adoptive mother" are just incredibly bad decisions.

Retro wanted Metroid Prime to be a Lilithtriod but Sakamoto wouldn't let them.

>>283226870
My theory is that Phaaze itself must have found one somehow.
That, or the leviathan somehow picked one up from Zebes. Like Prime 3 said, the Leviathan picks the strongest being available to be its Core Guardian.
I don't know how it makes sense, but hey, your guess is as good as mine.

I posted this in a Metroid thread yesterday, but needed to rephrase it.

If a Metroid game comes out that takes place after Fusion, will Samus continue working alongside the Galactic Federation. At this point they aren't on the best of terms
>Samus discovers illegal Metroid breeding on the Bottle Ship, which leads to Adam's death
>Discovers another Metroid breeding lab on the B.S.L. station and later forces the station to collide and destroy itself and SR-388 so the GF couldn't try to weaponize the SA-X

Isn't weaponizing dangerous creatures something the Space Pirates do? How is the GF considered the "good guys" at this point?

Hey guys is there any way to get metroid fusion on an original wii? I've got it hacked or whatever you wanna call it. I've installed a couple wads of old games. I injected master quest into an oot wad, so I kinda know what I'm doing, but I can't find anything out about metroid fusion except for wii u.

Barring being able to launch it from the channel menu, which is the best gba emulator on wii?
>>
>>283228570

/vg/ is for threads that are on the front page 24/7. Metroids threads happen sporadically, and generally take a pretty long time to hit bump limit. Whenever Metroid threads have tried moving to /vg/, they've just petered out in a few hours and died. We'd need more fans and some fresh topics to discuss.

Honestly, I'd like it if Samus started her own organization of hunters to put an end to all illegal Metroid activity, even if it means fighting the GF. If they already had two Metroid labs, there are probably more out there. Maybe even get pic related as part of her crew.

>held the Great Temple against the Ing singlehandedly, despite being unbelievably outnumbered
Is there anyone in the Metroid universe that could stop U-Mos?
>>
>>283229157

It's my head canon that there is some specific legal thing that prevents the G-fed from just finding some bullshit to arrest her and reverse engineering her power suit.

Given that the G-fed have canon not done jack shit with Chozo inhabited planets, there must be some piece treaty that keeps them away from chozo planets and something that would prevent them from just taking her tech.

That aside, I don't think Samus would be mercilessly hunted after fusion, there would be a cover up to avoid corruption getting leaked and a lot of effort to prevent her making an outcry against the Gfeds military core.
>>
>>283223972
That's Samus, not metroid.
>>
>>283229157
>Honestly, I'd like it if Samus started her own organization of hunters to put an end to all illegal Metroid activity
That's a pretty good idea for an open-world Metroid, but the idea would have to be executed perfectly for it to work. Too many ways screw it up.
>>
>>283229587

Uh, no, that's pretty clearly Metroid running away from some dragons.
>>
>>283229560

The "specific legal thing" is probably the fact that Samus would cause casualties that would probably number in the millions if the G-Fed was ever stupid enough to openly attack her.

My headcanon is that the G-Fed from Retro's games and Sakamoto's G-Fed are two branches, one that's specifically for retards with pointlessly evil plans and another that's for cool guys.

>>283229840

I don't think the power suit is that OP in it's own right, the advanceness is that it has the ability to absorb technology and transfer matter into energy and vice versa. Without absorbing the right tech her armor mainly just holds a powerful defensive advantage.

G-fed still have enough of an edge to handle space pirates, which can still take quite a beating even by Chozo made beam weapons, I wouldn't under estimate them or believe they'd be unable to defeat Samus. Remember, humans aren't as dumb as priates when it comes to reasoning.

Might as well post this in here: I recently had a random dream about Metroid. Found myself playing [what I assumed was] a Zero Mission-type remake of Metroid 2. Nothing really lengthy, but I found myself in a cyberpunk-meets-lava area (think Pirate Homeworld combined with Norfair) and after somehow dodging lots of enemies, climbing about a hundred floors and discovering, what I assumed, was, the top of a spire I had this satisfying feeling of playing a game that was fair in its [harder] difficulty, but reminiscing of my first time playing the original or Super.

If there ever was to be a new handheld Metroid, I worry whether I'll get that vibe or Nintendo will just find a way to fuck it up and lose the dread of being in an alien environment.

I want a real Metroid 0. A game that takes place before Metroid where Samus is just starting out and hasn't gotten most of her upgrades or confronted the Space Pirates/Metroids yet. Hell it could even build to the first ever encounter with them since in Metroid 1/Zero mission they're already regarded as a massive threat. I just want a game that is about some honest to goodness bounty hunting.Fuck, stick Adam's real sacrifice in their so we know why he's not around for the rest of the series and we can finally throw Other M in the trash.

Maybe visit different planets to recruit new members, along with the usual exploring, starting off with a trip back to Aether to discuss her plan with U-Mos. The guy owes her a lot after she saved their whole planet singlehandedly, but I have a feeling he would be wise and join with little hesitation, naming a new Sentinel in the process.

Metroid Zero Mission is an excellent remake of the original and will you throw you right into the series without the struggle of playing a dated, yet hardcore NES game.
Than play Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion
Than play the Metroid Prime Trilogy.
>>
>>283235108
After Zero Mission, play Super Metroid and Prime, preferably the Prime Trilogy. After that give Fusion a go. Metroid II is okay but it's aged pretty bad, check out AM2R, a fantastic fan project remake of II still in development but has a good chunk of play that brings in little bits of all the best metroid games..

If I need to move and aim at the same time I typically try to jump (While jumping your'll keep moving in the direction you wanted) and hold R to aim.
If no enemies are around to lock onto, pressing L can also lock you to face in the direction you choose. So you could hold R, aim, hold L, let go of R, start moving.
I guess I can see why it would be hard or inconvenient, but after awhile your'll become accustomed to it. I love the Prime series and I've mastered moving and aiming at the same time.
I absolutely love the GCs controls, but I hate the Wii controls.But I acknowledge most players don't wanna deal with the weird fuckery of trying to aim like this.

because i've been playing MP1 for the first time AFTER playing MP3 the controls were super weird. especially fast-paced combat with multiple enemies that surrounding around you is tedious but i've become accustomed to it by now.
I acknowledge their approach of not using the C-stick to aim like conventional FPS games, but the lack of easy look/aim control is a bit detrimental. Considering getting Trilogy for WiiU for when i play MP2. i liked the waggle control in MP3.

Wasn't actually ridley. It's a mimic of a clone of him, therefor the x parasite could have fucked up.

>>283228093

Other M isn't canon and the B.S.L station was ran by a shadow branch of the Federation.

I'm not a fan of the Federation breeding Metroid's though, I liked having one Sci-fi franchise where the government isn't evil.

Oh neat. Thanks again.
I was just converting them to WMVs myself. I'll use what you gave me instead.

What do you guys think about the idea that Samus' Powersuit were more a Mecha than armor?
Do you think it would make arm cannons, missile container and other stuff more plausible or is ancient birdpeople sciencemagic the whole charme of it?
>>
>>283239514
Geh. I keep fiddling with the c-stick expecting it to fix the camera...
>>
>>283229560

The chozo thing was covered in Prime by the pirates (not counting how Other M had the Federation remake Mother Brain but 1000x smaller somehow). Not even the best scientists can reverse engineer that shit to any practical level, they can kinda figure some of it out but most of it is too confusing.

that's how i thought of it the first time i played through metroid

you get to ridley, a motherfuckin dragon, and you're about just as tall as he is. so i figured the suit was at least a 10-12ft tall mech of some sort

Didn't they try to reverse engineer Samus' suit and used what little they found out to apply the tech to their soldier's armors? They kinda look like they were built after the powersuit in Prime 3 and they also gave Samus upgrades that were compatible with the suit.

Is it bad that I want a game where you can play as a feddie soldier?
>>
>>283238336

The Old log's don't refer to it as a metroid but something the pirates call metroid prime, as in the pirates are unsure where it came from. They were able to contain it for a bit but it stole their tech which is why it has your beams.

This was retconned so that Cypher couldn't be entered by the pirates, which means you have to assume it either came with the meteor or a metroid got through cypher.

Both concepts are inconsistent, the later being more likely, the former being what was probobally what Retro wanted since Phazon in the games beta was supposed have been metroid honey.
>>
>>283246213
Yes.
>>
>>283242028

Pirates aren't too bright and knew that they'd need to capture her to get the suit for analysis reasons.

Samus is clearly a federation citizen, it would be incredibly easy for them to pull a "serve your nation" bullshit and capture her.
>>
>>283242730

>They also gave he upgrades that were compatible with the suite

Power suit can merge with non-chozo tech, they likely just had the PED tech on hand and the suit naturally bonded with it.

doesn't mean they understood the bird magic concepts of it.

I'm playing through Prime 1, my first Metroid game and having a blast so far. Just got the Boost Ball and I want to just go running around all the maps messing around with it like I do every upgrade. I'm a little sad I didn't get into this series when it was recent but later's better than never.

Should I play Super Metroid or Prime 2 after I finish Prime 1?
>>
>>283247360

They were bright enough to reverse engineer her weapons from the leftover damage to their dead and the feds would never want to start a direct fight with Samus.

>>283248385
Since you started on Prime, I think you should continue, but be sure to play Super after that.

As i remember PED tech was still experimental but they actually made Samus' version specifically fit her suit, so i guess they know enough about it to make their shit compatible with it.

Thats because samus has a simple and satisfying look to her, making her easy to draw. A lot of non-metroid fans draw Metroid art just because its nice to draw.

It explains all the fan art that totally goes against all established lore like Samus standing in a room full of different power suits or surrounded by Metroids that are the wrong size
