Let's talk Metroid.

Last game you played?
Favorite suit?
What's the shittiest weapon in your opinion?
Best version of the Space Pirates?

Also Metroid Prime 2 is best in the Prime series.

>Last game you played?
Prime 3, trying to get to Skytown again
>Favorite suit?
Light or Dark Suit, they're both GOAT
>What's the shittiest weapon in your opinion?
Spazer Beam, since it gets replaced all the time.
>Best version of the Space Pirates?
Prime 2 had the best designs, but Prime 1 were the most amusing.

my nigga
I like Dark Suit for the angular aesthetic and color scheme. Amazing looking suit.

Last i played was probably a run of Metroid 2 earlier in the year. Being portable helps in keeping things easy to jump in to. I love the world of SR388: very alien and bizarre. Fusion's "simulation" is very bland in comparison, but many of the environments in Fusion were kind of lacking.
>>
>>315597467
Light Suit is my favorite. I personally see it as the peak of Samus' coolness, that was her at her strongest and purest

like metroid could only go downhill from there and promptly did

I just beat Super Metroid for the first time a few days ago and holy shit it deserves all the praise it gets. Like damn that was good. Shame it costs so much, I'll probably never own it.
Will come back to it and try to get the best ending at some point.

Second best metroidvania I played

Zero Mission

Light Suit
>What's the shittiest weapon in your opinion?
Either the Flamethrower or those beam shields from Super
>Best version of the Space Pirates?
The /v/ version
>>
Last game I played was Super, did some casual speedrunning, got 100% in 1:20 in game time.
Favorite suit is probably just the standard Varia Suit. It's always a nice design to look at.
Shittiest weapon goes to the Seeker Missiles because they're almost never useful in combat.
Best Space Pirates are Prime 2 pirates, and by extension, tubes pirates.

I might do a replay of the Primes soon, it's been a while.

Yeah, fool around with the settings. You can increase the resolution, set it to 16:9, etc.
>>
>last game played
fusion

>favorite suit
light suit, of course

>shittiest weapon
on its own either the flamethrower or plasma whip from prime 1. comparatively, the sonic boom from prime 2 because it uses a fuck load of ammo and sucks compared to the dark hole/sunbeam 99.9% of the time except for the first phase of the final dark samus fight
>>
>>315604915

If you're on a recent build of Dolphin, you should uncheck "Disable external frame buffer" to get rid of that black bar at the bottom. Make sure you set it to "virtual", though.
>>
>>315605184
oh and best space pirates are prime 2 with super in second
>>
>>315605218

I should mention, that option is under Graphics > Hacks. Most of the settings you should play with are in Graphics > Enhancements- specifically, you should probably increase the internal resolution to around 3x native, and set the anisotropic filtering to something higher than 1x. Definitely enable "Scaled EFB copy".
>>
>>315604915

Nigga, turn up that internal resolution. And slap some anti aliasing on while you're at it. Also, turn on that 16:9 ratio.

So apparently a new version of this build added experimental support for tessellation, but it requires creating different maps of the textures and such. Exciting times.

Beautiful thanks
The screen kept flickering when the "disable external frame buffer" was unchecked though
>>
>>315607397

Ah, yeah, that's a bug. If you still really want to get rid of the black bar, you can disable dual core in the main options, but that will drastically impact your performance. You might also want to enable the widescreen hack under Graphics > Enhancements, since currently the screen is just being stretched out rather than extended.

I never did finish my super metroid playthrough, and these dolphin screenshots are giving me an itch... might have to start delving in again after my LoZTP playthrough

Aww yiss OP. Never enough Metroid threads in this place

>Last game you played?
Metroid II: Return of Samus
>Favorite suit?
Zero Mission Power Suit
>What's the shittiest weapon in your opinion?
I really didn't like the Spazer in Super, for whatever reason. I loved it in M2 though
>Best version of the Space Pirates?
Zero Mission had the best, except that they were missing the spin-jump variant from that one part of Super
>>
>>315608872
Its okay, I only liked Super for the story and the fact that it spawned a ton of ROMhacks

M2 is my shit though
>>
>>315608872
Thinking of getting into Igavanias but I didn't like SoTN that much gameplay-wise. Are the later games better balanced, less tedious? If so I might get one of the DS games that my local retro games shop has.

The first is La-Mulana
>>
>>315609734
>better balanced
generally
>less tedious
debatable, the grind continues to feel optional but a sense of completionism can make it seem overwhelming... the soul systems in aria/dawn change it up a bit

CotM was a notable derivation of the same formula (probably because iga wasn't involved, apparently he didn't even like it) and feels a little more like a classic cv
>>
what's the best way to play metroid prime these days? would dolphin with a 360 controller be good for the first two, or should I take a look at that wii "collection" and see what I can manage for the controls?

I have an actual wiimote+ or whatever that works fine for zelda (I'm playing the wii version of tp because widescreen and the left-right flip is what I'm used to, turning off the pointer kills most of the annoying motion control shit), but I'm not big on the point-at-screen-to-aim thing they went for
>>
>>315610175

If you're emulating either way, then you should probably try the GCN versions, since they perform better in Dolphin. If you have an actual Wii, though, then the Trilogy is probably the most seamless and immersive experience, just because it doesn't suffer from any performance hiccups.
