Do you think Samus has a life outside of her job?

Do you think Ridley is a member of High Command, or just a high-ranking Space Pirate?

What do you think happened to the Chozo?

Is the last Metroid in captivity? Is the galaxy at peace?!

>Do you think Samus has a life outside of her job?
Yes, but it's a solitary, private one. Lots of practical, intellectual and cultural pursuits (engineering, art, music, etc.) to keep her mind sharp as well as physical training. She keeps an eye on space pirate activity at all time and moves in if they attack any civilian colonies. She's often much quicker than the GFeds.

>Do you think Ridley is a member of High Command, or just a high-ranking Space Pirate?
Top security officer. Has his own custom-made warship, basically has the authority to order any combat-caste Space Pirate. Answers directly to high command.

>What do you think happened to the Chozo?
All dead or ascended. A small colony may still be out there somewhere, if the hint in Skytown is any indication.

Is the last Metroid in captivity? Is the galaxy at peace?!
Until they release Metroid VI and reveal that someone was cloning more some-buttfucking-where, because that plot hasn't gotten tired at all yet.

The first Metroid is the definition of "This is the only game you can afford so enjoy playing it for the next three years". It's completely labyrinthine and requires you to bomb literally everything everywhere to proceed.

>>258926479
This almost makes me wish Metroid was more lighthearted so that shit like this could actually happen.
>>
>>258927274
Oh damn. Well i'm trying to play a bunch of old Nintendo games to get hyped for Smash Bros and right now my choices are

>Kid Icarus (tried it, got to the 4th level and it's hard)
>The Legend of Zelda (did the first dungeon, still kinda hard and i'm lost)
>Metroid (hard and i'm lost, looking at a map doesn't even help that much)
>Fire Emblem (haven't tried yet)

I played Punch-Out!! but couldn't beat Tyson, but i'll say I finished the game anyway for my own health

Try Metroid II if you want a "classic" Metroid experience. It laid the groundwork for Super Metroid and is a lot easier to complete without devoting your entire life to it.

Being a mercenary and hunting space pirates is probably most of her life. Samus is likely mentally insane to some degree. She saw everyone she knew slaughtered, was raised by aliens to be a solitary warrior, went into the military, was discharged from the military, and then found her alien family slaughtered by the same people.
>>
>>258928940
>was raised by aliens to be a solitary warrior,
The Chozo didn't raise Samus JUST to be a warrior. They really did care about her, so they probably tried to treat her like a daughter and make sure she was happy growing up, in their own weird monastic bird hippy way.

If for no other reason than it's practical to make sure your warrior destined to protect the galaxy is a well-adjusted person.

>>258926479
That sounds really cool actually. After coming back from Fusion, the Federation tries to arrest her for war crimes, terrorism, and treason against the federation because she disobeyed orders to let the Federation handle the X and blowing up SR-388. After escaping, she hears from a GFed buddy that the Federation will do anything and everything to capture her for the Metroid blood in her body. Seeing no redeeming light in the federation because they tried to pull this shit 2 times and want to try for a third, Samus heads to the tattered remains of the Space Pirate homeworld. They are on-guard to fight, but when she walks out in a manor and body language that says "I'm not here to fight, but make a move and I will kill you", they take her to their current leader (someone other than Ridley, Kraid, or Mother Brain). They negotiate the terms of their mutual partnership after she explains to them that once she goes, they are next. They begin to upgrade Samus's suit and Samus provides the Pirates with a few pieces of information about Chozo tech. During this time, they both know that they are going to try to stab each other in the back, it's only a matter of time when. Also, during this time Adam.cpu is warning her not to underestimate the Pirates.

That's just the shell of an opening that could very easily be reworked, revised, and expanded upon.
>>
>>258923216
>What happened to the Chozo

GFeds have the last few and are (ab)using them to make bigger and better weapons.
>>
>>258923216
No. She wasn't in the human federation's army. Has met other humans and deals with them, but doesn't really belong. Bird philosophies n such.
Ridley is something the pirates dug up on some desolate world and started revering as pseudo deity.
Ancient evil destroyed the Chozo. Some few might still exist somewhere, kinda like the Luminoth.
>>
My headcanon is that Samus is only attracted to men like her dads

Basically, I'm saying she only has eyes for gay birds and will never get laid.

They really should've had unique intro-lines for each versus in Smash.
Kinda like in Marvel vs. Crapcom.

Is this really what you born-post-1990 people see in the game?
>>
I think the one thing Samus really wants to have in the universe is a baby of her own.
Ridley is a feral monster, I don't know...... and the high commanding space pirate leader, I don't fucking care!
Chozo were killed by Metroids.

she isn't in captivity until the federation arrests her

Well, ghosts are real. I'd say that's a pretty good argument for souls existing.
>>
>>258940658
Maybe they were trying to use Phantoom as a weapon against Metroids. Assuming Metroids can't attack ghosts because they need a physical body to latch onto.

I'm guessing you're just trolling, but if you're not:

>Sakamoto: "I actually didn't have a lot of input on the Prime series. But when they're doing with Other M here, it's not so much a different universe, it's just a different part of the story."

I have never been aroused by weird stuff such as the original image that was edited to make this. When I watch porn, it's always the most basic vanilla porn imaginable. And yet the original image for this has aroused me. What is happening to me?

She's wearing the same outfit she wears in the ending. You can see it when she dies.
