@Kid_A: Well, it's a bit late for that, since I already gave up on the fight. I guess I'll have to re-do it, only without losing too much life this time around...

@Adam: Huh? I wasn't the one that made the butt remark, sir, it was romulux (though it is quite nice)...

Also, Samus looked particularly good during a certain late-game flashback (where she has the short ponytail)...

Damn it, still the same result as last time (Game Over), even though this time around I have six energy tanks to spare... >=[

Anyway I'm only played for about 45 minutes and just reached sector 1 (I keep stopping to explore every room because I'm crazy). Definitely having fun so far. Chicken, you might finish this game before I do, since I will be in Vegas next week.

We'll see. :) I spent an embarrassingly long time chasing a red herring tonight. (At least, I think so.) [Intentionally mild spoilers follow for a section of the game that nearly all of you passed about an hour after you started playing...] I was in that room in Sector 1 with the big terrarium set in the wall. I noticed a hole blown in the glass, which wasn't there before (that I noticed) so I rolled in and explored. While exploring, I heard a certain tell-tale nibbling sound that I remembered from an earlier forced-first-person Where's-Waldo puzzle, so I kept walking in circles for about 10 minutes or more, switching perspectives back and forth, trying to find the little critter who made the noise the first time I heard it.

I never found him. Either I'm awful at locating him, or there's nothing there and I'm making myself crazy. If it's the latter--and it probably is, I admit--then I wonder why they put that nibbling sound in there, and made it so it gets louder or softer depending upon your distance from the "source." Especially since the source doesn't seem to be visible...?

Ah well.

I am loving this game. I've fought a whole slew of bosses so far. Or mini bosses. I have no idea. I love them. The sleeping monster was a great touch. It's lovely to find stuff like that, realize you'll have to fight him in a moment's time, and you have just a little relaxation period in which to catch your breath and say, "Aw, crap."

Plenty of seat-jumping moments, too. And the whole sliding in and out of cinematics thing that Big Dog pointed out earlier has been responsible for me taking a LOT of damage. I see a big monster approaching in a cinematic...then he rears back to attack me...and then he sends me flying, because I didn't realize the cinematic had ended. AND I LOVE IT.

Excellent game. Two hundred trillion out of 10. Or a nine out of 10. I haven't decided, but one of those.

I'm playing at about the same rate as you Chicken, so don't feel too bad. =) I also probably won't have time to play it again until Friday, which sucks (i don't want to play unless i know i have at least an hour or two of uninterrupted time available). At least it's Labor Day weekend, so the office is closed on Monday!

And that's all she wrote, folks! I've beaten Other M already. I'm going to have to go back and re-watch the last cutscene, though, because while it was running my DVR turned on and started recording (Psych), so by the time I used another cable to get the AV cables hooked up directly to the TV, the credits were already rolling. This game was absolutely amazing and well worth waiting for. It might not be a reviewer's wet dream, but I could care less, because I loved it. All that's left to do now is to grab all the pick-ups, which should keep me playing for at least another day considering how tough some of them are to find and/or get to...

It's definitely the former, CB...

The fight with Ridley is pretty straightforward, just dodge his hits and nail him with a charged Plasma Beam shot after you evade. Also, when he turns black you have to blast him with a missile (or Super Missile, not sure). And whatever you do, do not let him catch you when he rushes you or he'll do that attack where he scrapes you along the wall, which, of course, does a lot of damage...

Hard for me to tell which bosses are subs and which ones are majors. xD
I'm guessing that lava creature thing was a major boss, Ridley is definitely one of them. I'm just gonna add the tank thing too...just because its big. xD

i also beat it today. i was looking forward to this a lot, but i wasn't expecting it to challenge super metroid as my favorite. other m's not as perfect and, effective as it is, the music doesn't even close... but the gameplay is so much fun.

So, I've got a question: any of you guys have the power bombs yet?

it's really hard to answer without spoiling, but i will say that you never really get authorized to use them...

you knew it'd come to this sooner or later. it's definitely pushing the sexualization, but i wouldn't say it crosses the line. it's hard to say that giving her a strong butt is really any worse than showing her in her underwear constantly as a reward for beating the game.

Nearing the end of the game (I think). Just got my Gravity Suit. You're really a walking arsenal by the end of this game.
And now, brace yourself for a

MEGA SPOILER ALERT!!!!
I was kind of disappointed by the Samus/Adam relationship. I think they could have done a lot more with that, and I can't believe he killed the little genetically modified Metroid baby. But what's more surprising is that Samus was going to kill it first...wait. He shot Samus because he said "I can't let you destroy those Metroids"...but he shot the Metroid...so...what? And can somebody explain why he went in the Sector Zero Metroid room thingy and deployed it into space? I couldn't really keep up with that scene.

samus took the risk of saving the baby metroid last time and it backfired and cost the lives of a bunch of scientists and nearly rebooted the space pirate's metroid cloning program. the fact that she was prepared to shoot it meant that she had learned her lesson that there's no safe way to keep metroids alive.

samus was determined to destroy the metroids herself, but with her weapons there was no way she could fight them. regardless, she never would have let adam sacrifice himself to take them out even though it was the only way, which is why he stunned her so that she wouldn't interfere and get herself killed.

the cloning sector was set to jettison and self destruct as a fail-safe in the event that the lab became too damaged to safely contain the metroids, which adam exploited to destroy the sector.
