Wait I`m confuzzled? Isn`t this topic on how Adam hates MP3 when people are saying your mom jokes and talking street!?

You have come to the right place, friendo!

Well Metroid Prime 3 is the best in the Trilogy in so many ways such as other than the obvious graphics and controls but the intense boss battles, new monsters to demolish, Corruption mode, and genius puzzle solving make this superior to it`s predecessors`.

Heh, some of your reasons for liking it are my reasons for not liking it. To each his own! :)
I found Corruption mode to be unexciting, and Retro's trend of putting more and more puzzles into Metroid makes me happy that the Prime series is over. It always felt weird and out of place for Metroid. Why do Space Pirates make morph-ball sized passages for all their top secret stuff? :D
The old Metroid games, and even the first two Prime games to a lesser extent, had such fantastic mood, but the puzzles really interrupt that, which puts me off.

I love your opinion! Now wheres my apple juice?

Why do people feel the need to label any and all negative criticism as "whining" or worse?

It's called emotive language I believe. Basically I could say discuss, but that makes you seem like a perfectly intelligent human being. By saying that you're bitching and whining about something, it makes you look irrational, even though the words are interchangeable. If my English teacher is to be believed, it helps get a point across.

Either you have an awful teacher (as a current grad assistant in an English department and prospective teacher, I have my fingers crossed this isn't true, :D), or you have completely misunderstood the lesson. Charged language is bad for the exact reasons you described.

When a word is charged with nonapplicable or at least unreasoned meaning, you are leaning on your emotions rather than the strength of your argument, which is only good for convincing the reader that the author is a jerk, not that he has any point whatsoever. The fact that it's rude should be enough to avoid it, though.

Emotive language should be used sparingly and only when you think it will be most effective. That's how I see it anyway, it's like swearing, if you do it all the time it becomes meaningless. Anyone who disagrees with me can !*$# off.

Best I could do on short notice. So I guess we're gathering to watch this silliness now. Heck, why not? Laugh and your roommate laughs with you (unless they're a total jerk, of course)! :D

I hate that prime 3 stacked all your weapons instead of letting you upgrade and switch them in combat!
And had only 3 visors (hypermode excluded)

You're right, those apples in Green Greens won't fall down by themselves, back to work for me.

Good to hear, Cow Launch.

Now, back on topic:

Chicken Brutus is a dooty head, and Metroid for NES is better than Prime 3.

No, Metroid on the NES licks extreme dong! Prime 3 最是很 OSSUM! As Toad says, "I'm the best." but pretend toad is a copy of MP3.

Ah, good example. I'll try that. OK, I'm seeing a game with an over hyped control scheme, incongruous puzzles, and a near complete disregard for the series' roots... with a mushroom on its head. I hope it's released soon!

I really liked MP3 but the containers thing pissed me off so much that I couldn't finish it.

Bad example, though. Toad sucks. Or maybe that's what MAKES it a good example, because Metroid Prime 3 says it's the best but also actually sucks? This is much to ponder...

EDIT: @theblackdragon: No matter what CowLaunch may have to say about it, that new picture is MUCH better. Far funnier, too, imo. :D

I waffle back and forth between Metroid and Super Metroid as my favorite in the series, but I lately am leaning more toward the original. The difficulty is definitely a bit over the top for my tastes, but Super's just as flawed for being much too easy. But Metroid's difficulty at least adds to the mood of nervous isolation on an unknown planet that Super fails to evoke for me, for the most part. Both are great games though.

The one thing I think the Prime series did great was to balance the difficulty so that it's not too hard nor too easy, though I think Prime 3 was a bit on the too difficult side when it came to bosses.

@ Black Dragon
Much better.

@Adam: I'll take too easy over too hard any day! I once managed to get to Mother Brain in the original Metroid. She killed me and I respawned at the planet's entrance with a lousy 35 energy. I turned it off at that point, and haven't been back. Zero Mission is awesome, though.

Besides all that, I don't think that Super Metroid is too easy. But like I've said, I'm not much of a needless challenge-seeker. I want my games fun, not hard, and I find there are very few games that manage to be both.

@ TBD
May I ask why it's always black people? Is it some sort of meme I've never heard of? Or is it only funny when black people do it (like swearing)? Can someone post up a video of a white person eating popcorn?
