Why aren't you going to buy Metroid Zero Mission when it finally releases tomorrow on the Wii U Virtual Console, anon?

http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/metroid-zero-mission-wii-u
>>
because I still have my copy CIB and i prefer to just play it that way.

great game, though, anon
>>
>>323836686
I still have my own copy.
>>
>>323836686
Can I buy this on the 3DS shop?
>>
>>323837509
unfortunately, nah, brah.
>>
Emulation.
>>
>>323837509
Why would you be able to do that? That would be Nintendo not having their head in their ass.
>>
I am posting on a PC and therefore have already emulated it.

Then what's the point.
I just wanted to play this on a handheld again.
>>
>>323836686
Because I already installed it to my emuNAND.

Why buy it for a stationary console when I can already take it on the go?
>>
>>323836686
because i can play it on my 3ds
>>
I already own a cartridge of it.
>>
>>323836686

i still have my cartridge what do i need the wiiu version for?
>>
Why is this handheld title on a home console?
>>
Eh, I may buy it to show my support for Metroid.
>>
Zero Mission is a remake of the first Metroid, right? If I play Zero Mission, can I just skip playing Metroid?
>>
It gets really shitty during the last fifth of the game and doesn't really pick back up
>>
>Because i have it in my psp go
>>
>>323837672
Play it on the Wii U gamepad then.
>>
>>323838321
You can, but some people will not agree with that.

Somewhat related thread

I'm playing super metroid for the first time on wii u virtual console.

The default controls are killing me. Should I suck it up, or can I play around with the button customizations? X to shoot and A to jump are killing me, but maybe Y to shoot and B to jump would be a lot more intuitive to me, but I don't know how important dash button is. Maybe dash could be ZR? Also maybe select set to ZL?
>>
>>323838661
Go ahead and fiddle around with them. I never really liked Super Metroid's controls.
>>
I own it, I've emulated it on my PC, and I have it on homebrew on my Wii. I'll stick to actual Wii U games for my Wii U, I'm not about to re-buy old games just to play them on the gamepad.
>>
>>323838759

Okay thanks. I was afraid I'd get some important upgrade halfway into the game that is set to Y or something, and then I'd have to mess with the controls again because I moved Y to start or some shit
>>
>>323838661
Here's my control setup for Super Metroid:

B: Jump
Y: Shoot
X: Item Select
A: Item Cancel
R: Run
L: Angle Up

Works for me.
>>
>>323836686
No point. I played the shit out of it when I was a kid. I've done almost everything there is to do with it.
>>
>>323838661
I've been playing this game since it first released and always changed the controls to my liking. I.e. y = shoot, b = jump
>>
>>323838321
You unlock the original by beating Zero Mission (if they don't take that out of the Wii U release anyway)
>>
Not walking 10 feet and plugging up my piiu
Fuck I should just throw the thing away.

3DS version when?
>>
>>323838321
Absolutely. The original Metroid has not aged well.

METROID 4 WAS RELEASED IN 2002

TO SAY WE AREN'T ENTITLED TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE LACK OF A MAINLINE GAME IN OVER 14 YEARS IS BULLSHIT

TO GIVE US A REMAKE OF THE FIRST METROID IN ORDER TO MAKE IT PLAY LIKE AN IMPROVED VERSION OF THE THIRD GAME, AND THEN NOT GIVE US A REMAKE OF THE SECOND METROID IN ORDER TO DO THE SAME THING, IS ANNOYING AS FUCK
>>
>>323837607
I don't even why they are doing this. Is this some kind of samurai shit to deny the wiiu is a flop?
>>
>oh boy Nintendo will surely care about Metroid if I buy VC shekel grabs
Nah, I've accepted my favorite series is dead.

I'll just make SSs to it eventually and atleast try to do what I expected from Nintendo.
>>
>>323839219
Google AM2R.

And be thankful if we never get Metroid 5. They'll just put out some half-assed piece of shit with art approved by The Early Learning Centre.

>>323836686
Why would I buy a game I already own only to play it in a worse form factor on a shitty emulator? I can do that on PC for free.

Metroid is better.

what's with all this 2 remake business?
terrible game, like zelda 2. black sheep that should just be forgotten about.

I want a new game in the series. preferably with a new female protagonist. like samus' protege or something/daughter.

they could call it metroid: reloaded

metroid 2 was my first game ever.

Meh, not worth the content cuts plus I never saw the issue with GC aiming.

People were right when they said that Metroid fans are more autistic than that of Pokemon and Sonic combined.

>>323837509
No. But GBA and SNES games are fully playable on 3DS for the most part.
>>
>>323842948
the "guide" may be complete shit but it's pretty safe to say FF is going to be fucking awful considering it's not even an actual Metroid Game.

>b-but

>S.T.E.A.M is shown off, looks incredibly mediocre
>STEAM comes out
>is incredibly mediocre
Sometimes the book and cover are shit.
>>
>Why is this on Wii U and not 3DS
3DS is shit and can't handle them with the proper VC interface with save states and all that. The ambassador GBA games don't have any of the VC features, can't enter sleep mode, etc.

I still have my copy for GBA so I'd just play that.

they removed some minor water effect.

worth it for faster load times though.
>>
>>323843168
>how do I know it's going to be shit? i-i just know, OK! don't question it, just listen and believe!

When did Metroid fans become more autistic than Kingdom Hearts fans? It's genuinely impressive how willing people are to throw away basic critical thinking just because one game doesn't feature muh pretty blonde waifu.

To remake it where it's not bad.

After all, it's Metroid 2, the origin of the Baby Metroid of Samus' flashbacks, and the first time you saw a Queen Metroid.

WHICH GOT ITS THUNDER STOLEN BY GODDAMNED OTHER M

FUCK I'M STILL MAD
>>
>>323836686
Because I already did since it was released ages ago in Europe.

America loses once again.
>>
Because I still have my original GBA cartridge and a GBA, GBA SP, DS, and Gamecube GBP adapter to play it on.

Why would I pay Nintendo's preposterous rip-off prices to download 15-year-old digital data again? There is nothing the VC does that my emulators don't do infinitely better, if I wanted to not play it on original hardware.

It needs to run flawlessly if they're going to charge money for it. If you're using a free emulator made by fans it doesn't matter if the game crashes, has bugs or doesn't run as well as the original. If you're paying for an official product, it should work 100% of the time.
>>
>>323843351
I love sequence breaking so I'll stick to the GC versions of 1 & 2. Aiming is nice though on Trilogy I'll give you that.
>>
>>323836686
Because VC is a worse end user experience than just using an emulator.
>>
>>323843773
Because anon, if you don't buy it again then we'll never see another metroid again, ever!
Because making people buy your game twice is definitely the most rational way to gauge interest.
>>323843940
There's do though, save-states aren't exactly hard to do regardless.
>>
Because my GBA copy works just fine. Does this even come with original Metroid as an unlockable?
>>
I already played and beat this multiple times when it released. The game is so unremarkable that playing it again years later is not necceasary.
>>
Only took like a year. Now where's shadow dragon?
>>
>>323844169
I hope we never DO see another Metroid again, ever.

Other M proved that Nintendo has forgotten how to make a decent Metroid game.

Federation Force proved that Nintendo gives zero fucks about that and has no problem cynically exploiting the Metroid name to sell a few more copies.

My sincere hope is that they don't shit on the name any more than they already have, and the series can be left to die with at least some of its dignity intact.

The good games will always be there for us to go back and play, which we can thankfully do many, many times thanks to their open-ended nature (sequence breaking).
>>
>>323836686
... because I already own a non digital copy of that game?

>>323842324
is the metroid 2 remake actually complete or is it still just an incomplete demo?

Hot dang if I had a Wii U still I would buy it.

I've been wanting to ever since that thread where /v/ lauded it as the best game ever contender after OoT.

I must taste that true Metroid nonlinearity.

Still incomplete. He's done with Area 4, currently testing and fine-tuning the new Area 5. A post on the site intimated that he's hoping to finish and release it this year.

Go play Fusion if you want best linear Metroid.

Because I've already played it to 100% completion several times over and my Wii U is stuck on 5.5 while I wait for Loadiine on that firmware and (hopefully) Nintendon't/Wii backup loader that runs natively off the Wii U instead of the vWii.
>>
>>323845345
Do you really think they're going to go through the effort of re-writing the ROMs they're putting up on the e-shop?

Have my own copy still, in really good condition.
