Samus gives us a brief history on Metroid.
I beat the game Prime, Echoes, and Corruption but I didn't get all the power ups T_T. I also got Other M which I thought was revolutionary, the story was incredible and the gameplay was utterly phenomenal
Samus is such a awesome character. No matter what happens to her, she always manages to push through it. Oh, and great video!
Metroid prime was the first game I ever really got into and committed to. My favorite game and I could play it over and over
The chronology of Metroid goes; Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid 2: Return Of Samus, Super Metroid, Metroid Other M then Metroid Fusion.
It goes: Metroid (NES)---> Prime Series ---> Metroid 2 (GB) ---> Super Metroid (SNES) ---.> Fusion (GBA). Fudge knows where Hunters fits in, slot it in with the prime series. I think its a little sad that Fusion hasnt got a second yet and Metroid 2 never even cops a mention these days even though they were both 2 of the best of the whole metroid series. Discuss!
@ Darth_Nater307 The time line of the Prime games happened after this game. Metroid Happens right after Super Metroid. (I hope I right about the game) All I know is that this happened before Prime.
@Waldkrieger Alright 'Martin Luther King', that was a very nice speech you made. Even so; yes, you are entitled to your own opinion. I may have been a little harsh back then, the caps. lock might have beeen jamming. So this is cleared up then. Everybody friends?
@widdowson91 @smurfandbuffalo I am not arguing with anyone. Go back and read what I said for yourself, no argument from me. I simply stated my opinion. That is all. I have as much right to an opinion as anyone else, and to post it as much as anyone else as well. If you dislike it, not my fault...it's called freedom. As for the other comment: I am actually an avid gamer, and have been since the 80's. I do know what I am talking about, otherwise I would not open my mouth. I read and keep informed as well as watch E3 and other events from start to beginning. I simply think Nintendo has nothing to offer me with the Wii, except about 5 games total; this new Metroid being one of them. I see nothing else of interest from it. The Wii is simply not for me. I am not a "fanboy hardcore" about PS3 or X360 either. I care about GAMES, not which console it is on. End of Line.
awesome video. if any of you guys need a better retrospective than this, go to gametrailers . com and search metroid retrospective. they have about 6 videos covering the metroid series.
@smurfandbuffalo: Funnily enough I've thumbed you up, because really, deep down I agree with you. Sometimes I wander why I bother bickering.
@widdowson91 @Waldkrieger Oi! Listen you two have gotten yourselves into the stupidest argument ever! Some person says the wii is bad and then the wii lovers say everything else is stupid! It's so BORING reading the same argument on every page related to nintendo! The only way to stop these arguments are to KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOURSELVES!! (thumbs up if you agree)
@Waldkrieger: No, what rubbish. Look if you don't like Nintendo fair enough, but don't say false stuff. I could say the very same for the PS3 and XBox 360, most of the games on them consoles are short, easy games not worth playing, most the FPS's on them consoles are clones of each other and the rest of the games aren't even worth talking about. And no not just 2 games, it was a mere example. Twilight Princess is one of the highest rated games of this generation too, and so is Super Smash Bros. Brawl, plus you've got other games like Metroid Prime 3, No More Heroes, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Monster Hunter Tri and Mario Kart Wii. And some other games that are going to be released for the Wii soon are Donkey Kong Country Returns and The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword; plus other future releases like The Last Story and Dragon Quest X. I was using the 2 Mario Galaxy games as mere examples, because at the end of the day they top anything else released this generation. You just sound like a bitter 'so-called hardcore' gamer who actually knows nothing in the slightest.
@widdowson91: Two games, seriously? The entire library of games for the Wii has maybe five games worth playing at all, period. The rest are garbage. In fact, the system is garbage. Nintendo died for me at Gamecube. That was their last worthy moments.
@Waldkrieger: How is the Wii paperweight? The two most criutically acclaimed games of this generation are on the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.
@m0zart & pzio That's what I meant. Prime series was skipped only, I guess, because they depart a little from the original series and have it's own milestone events which still can develop another events (as suggested by Corruption full end)
As for the Retrospective video, absolutely fantastic. Brought back many memories, then also made me look forward to the new with the remake of that great moment. Well done Project M, now follow through with a game that is as great as it looks. :)
@kbaily Metroid was released in 1986. Halo: Combat Evolved was released in 2001. Now (Correct me if I am wrong here), anyone who has played Metroid games knows that the isolate, all alone feel is one of the great aspects of any and all of the Metroid adventures. Samus first works with the Federation (I believe) in Metroid II: Return of Samus, which was released in 1991. Halo: Combat Evolved was released in 2001. 'Nuff said.
@pzio Yes, but the Metroid Prime series takes place in between Metroid and Metroid 2: Return of Samus. So the events of the Prime series take place before Super Metroid, not after.
Oh. My. God. When I saw the recreation of the end of Super Metroid, I was in awe. Ok, this game is at the top of my list of "Games To Get", and only 13 days left!!
@enrique_marrodz The reason they skipped the Prime series was because Other M takes place directly after the events of Super Metroid if I'm not mistaken
Kbaily samus aran was born nearly a decade and a half before amster cheif, soy your coment is usless and senseless
Hmmmmmmmm I noticed that Samus' voice is slightly metalic, which is a little bit annoying. But still, who gives a damn, right! The storyline is absolutely perfect and I'll but this game anyhow! I'm sure we all will!
