On another note, while I enjoy AM2R I don't think it is the end all of Metroid games / fan games.


I don't either, but it's still pretty skeezy to nuke it just to put out a version that basically preys on a neglected fanbase just for some extra nickels and dimes. I'd still not like its erasure just on principle, but with that extra little dash of bullshit it turns it from "I hate it but I get it" to "Nintendo is just legitimately evil now"

Also at that point my New 3DS had CFW installed and I could emulate amiibos in game so...


I've actually never heard of this.

Fair enough. Nintendo, and really all the other video game publishers have been evil AF.

It's called Wumiibo.

Here is the Github. Here is the GBATemp (blegh) page.

Can't freaking wait for Metroid Dread.

Ninety-Six, you can buy NFC stickers on ebay for dirt cheap, grab amiibo BIN files online, get the TagoMO app for Android, and create your own amiibo stickers. That's what I did. I actually made a whole set of Zelda amiibo cards. For BOTW. When Samus Returns came out, I made some stickers for those amiibo too so I could unlock Hard Mode (that's all it does).

Nintendo the game developer are almost always on point and make amazing content, there have been a couple missteps (Metroid Prime Federation Force) but they're usually just top notch.

Nintendo the business is a big honking rip off of a company that will screw you over any way they can.

And speaking of Metroivanias and Metroid fangames, has anyone tried the Prime 2D demo? Freaking amazing. It's not just a demake anymore, they're rewriting the game lore and story it seems like so it's fresh and brand new. And boy can I not way to play more of it. And in the demo there are SO MANY SECRETS to find.

I absolutely love Prime 2D, however I'm not that sold on the rewriting of the lore and story. I'm someone who could be called a lore purist with the franchises I love. So although it is a joy to play I feel kind of iffy. Not that anything that they have added AFAIK has been egregious. So far only there have been easter eggs.

For anyone interested in trying it out, you can grab the Prime 2D Demo here. I totally recommend it.

I have those but for Zelda BOTW. The amiibos are incredibly easy to pirate.

It's a shame that getting a special edition for Metroid Dread is going to be all but impossible. I tried to pre order it (I fell to temptation) and it was all but sold out here in Mexico, everywhere. Instead you can find it on Mercado Libre for double the price. Fucking Scalpers.

Many are saying that the Dread SE is just not available yet rather than it being already out of stock. I'm going to be leaning on my local PNP Games chain to get an import at some point. It's how I got Link's Awakening Special Edition. Just wish I could have gotten the Samus Returns one. I got the NA version with the music CD anyway, but it seems UK gets all the best stuff nowadays and needs to be imported.

You just threw a lot of terms at me that I don't really understand. :D

And yeah I know that it only unlocks hard mode. But that used to be something you unlocked through normal play, and I enjoy the hard modes. Metroid is already a difficult series and I tend to look forward to playing it on an higher difficulty. Hell, I only play the Prime games on hard mode now (or at least Prime 1 and 2. Not a fan of how it was integrated in 3 and the Trilogy versions where it saves logbook data across which I wish you could at least choose to start over fresh on Hard. I see the logbook entries as collectibles in of themselves so having them pre-collected irks me).

And while cutting out stuff that used to be free in earlier releases is a practice I already hate, it really makes it even worse when it's being resold to you but is severely limited in stock. It's on-disc DLC that just having the money isn't enough for. You have to go out and buy a useless little statue, which again they purposefully keep in low supply. That's the part that really pisses me off. As much as I hate the practice I'd have bought the hard mode DLC, but Nintendo themselves choose to not let me.


I didn't know about it until this topic, but I fully support amiibo piracy. Fuck Nintendo.

I haven't yet, no, and I'm not sure if I will. I appreciate the attempt to put in new content but Prime 1 as it is is already one of my favorite games of all time. I don't know if it has any hope of living up to it (and this is from someone who actually prefers 2).

Play it. It's good. It's not about measuring up to Prime (which IS my favourite). It's about a new Metroid experience that's fun to play. And we're severely short on those right now, Dread notwithstanding.

Yeah, i also recommend it, it's pretty good and it is different enough both artistically and gameplay wise that is clear this is another game on it's own. Even if I don't like them messing with the lore. At that point you are inserting your own fanfiction.

In another news, an official classification for Castlevania Advance Collection surfaced.

If this pans out, it would be one of the few cool things Konami has done since they fell to the depravity of pachinko machine hell. I'm cautiously excited for this one. I love the games but truly, Konami is the fucking worst.

EDIT: Also, in celebration of Metroid Dread, I have decided to replay all the Metroid 2D games.

EDIT 11:34 pm: Insomnia is harsh dudes. I always liked the Chozo architecture in Zero Mission. It has a very aztec/mayan feel to it and as a Mexican I always digged that.

I scanned the little art/history book included in the Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition. I'm not sure if it has been uploaded to the internet yet but seeing as H have not been able to find it with my google fu and I had a couple of hours today with the office scanner for my own purposes I decided to add the "little booklet" to my workflow. I have uploaded it to the Internet Archive both as individual jpegs, a zip file and a cbz file.

Lol!

I just finished playing Zero Mission and I have started playing AM2R. As much as I like that they tried to stick as close to the original design wise, some decisions really make me raise my eyebrows. Like this:

Yeah, that was original behavior in OG SR. But does it really need to be here? It looks fucking silly.

So, a lot has happened lately. First off, Prime 2D got shut off by Nintendo unfortunately. I have uploaded the Demo to the Internet Archive though, for those who are interested in trying it out.

Second, Blasphemous latest DLC has been announced, and the trailer looks dope! Also Blasphemous 2 has been confirmed to be in development.

The Prime2D soundtrack was also taken offline sadly. Although, Team SCU has stated that their "in talks" with Nintendo, whatever that means. Likely nothing will come of it, but I'm curious if anything possibly could.

Hopefully something good comes of it.

In another metroid related new, a new trailer for Metroid just dropped. And it is fucking glorious.



I swear, fucking Nintendo has a fucking personality disorder or sum shiiiieeeet. I can't believe I live in a timeline were Ninty is hyping the fuck out of Metroid while at the same time they strike Prime 2D.

Another 30 second trailer dropped today.

Nothing new AFAIK, but Jesus Christ! I still can't believe we are in a universe were Nintendo is pushing a Metroid game this freaking hard. This timeline is fucking whack.

Blasphemous is a great game. I really enjoyed it. I just didn't like the sections with the bullshit spikes were your souls thingy can be stuck and lost forever lol.

I don't think they even pushed Other M or any of the Prime games this hard. It's truly a sight to behold. I love to see it. I just hope the audience is there to respond or I fear Metroid will go into extended hiatus again which we don't want.

Now I know we are all excited for Metroid Dread but I think we should try some other metroidvanias till the release of le big fish. So to start this let me make one recommendation: Touhou Luna Nights.

A game set in the titular series Touhou, it's a metroidvania bullet hell. Now if that does not make you raise an eyebrow, then you are probably dead inside.

Here is a video of a dude doing high level gameplay shit:



IMO this is a pretty fun metroidvania with some interesting and original gameplay mechanics that people should try out. As always, you don't need to buy it my dudes. But if you do, it's AFAIK available on Steam and on the Nintendo Switch.

There are far too many Metroivanias I haven't played. I still have to beat Axiom Verge for goodness sake.

Well prepare your butt MusicallyInspired, because the Castlevania Advance Collection has been rated for Switch in Taiwan.

Gonna have to pull a USA and print some fucking money with the amount of games that are coming out, holy shit.

THE CASTLEVANIA ADVANCE COLLECTION HAS DROPPED TODAY!



But jkas I hear you say, those games are not Symphony of the Night! To which I answer: "yeah but they are pretty good". Also apparently Sony has an exclusivity deal for SOTN with Konami.

The guys at Nintendo Life got to play Metroid Dread!



On another also exciting news, Record of Lodoss War-Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth- is getting released on consoles! And it is a physical release as well!

Attached Image: 20210926220914_1.jpg

This is another game I can readily recommend. It's a beautiful metroidvania that has tight gameplay and although it is short, it doesn't drag out like other metroidvanias (I'm looking at you hollow Knight).

If you want to watch some of the gameplay you can see this video:

3 days to release day for Metroid Dread. Aaaaaaaaand it leaked kek. People have been able to play it on Ryujinx (sorry if I butchered the spelling there). It honestly looks freaking awesome. I may or may have not acquired a totally legal NSP of the game and installed it on my hacked switch.

SO BEWARE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED. SCREENSHOTS AND VIDEOS ARE FLOATING AROUND LE INTERWEBS

TLDR no spoilers: So far it seems to be everything I wanted it to be from another Mercury 2D Metroid.

With that out of the way I'm still waiting for October 8th as I have preordered the physical copy and I'm dying to have it on my hands. Shame that getting the Special Edition is such a shit show. Fuck scalpers dudes.

While we few wait (Am I turning into gemeaux333 for basically single posting on this thread? Eh, at least I'm not licking Randy's balls.) for Metroid Dread to finally fucking release, may I recommend people try this Resident Evil 8 demake in the style of Castlevania?



For anyone interested, you can download it here.
