Nope. But there's a much, much cooler Lava boss. I always thought Crocomire was kind of silly, myself. Besides the fact that his name is the BOMB.

So for the WHOLE game you start with all weapons and such and when you replay it you have to find them?

@Panda: Oh, yeah? My method was to back myself into a corner and shoot three Super Missiles at them. The key to fighting those things is to get a good distance away after the Power Bomb goes off, because those things are a nightmare at close range due to their speed, plus they can teleport, too...

No.... Crocomire? He was my favorite SM Boss...

@turtlelink: Think you can ask your question a bit more coherently? I don't quite understand what you're asking...

@Metroidfan, I heard you can't use any of your weapons at will and have to wait for someone to tell you to use it iirc. But i also heard once you beat the game and replay it, you get to use your weapons anytime.

NotEnoughGolds, I've beaten the game once or twice. But starting with 30 energy is not teaching you to survive. It's teaching you how to be bored to death. Refilling all those energy tanks is not remotely fun. Challenge should be through good, fun level design (which it has), not the unrelenting tedium of killing those infinitely spawning enemies over and over. And yea, Ridley is easy. I find Kraid is really tough though. His missiles are overwhelming, so I just freak out on the attack button and make sure I have a ton of energy tanks before. I find him harder than Mother Brain, actually.

Romulux, Ridley is killed in Metroid 1 from all looks and appearances. He disappears. And in Super Metroid, there is no indication whatsoever that he's been revived with prosthetics. And manga is not remotely canonical. The explanation in Other M is satisfactory (and kind of amusing), though. What you were responding to was before I got past him.

...WTF? Just defeated this robot thing not too long ago that was intensifying the gravity...Apparently it wasn't a robot either, WTF?! xD
(it sounded like a baby when it died too)

Kinda reminded me of Nightmare.

@turtlelink: You heard right, you're not allowed to use any weapons or suit upgrades until Adam gives the word. As for being able to use them all when you replay it, you'd have to be more specific. If you mean "replaying" as in starting a new file, then I doubt that it's true (you do have free reign to use them all once you beat your current file, though)...

@BellGoRiiing:

I'm pretty sure that was Nightmare, or at least an earlier version of it...

Haha, Bell, that was a weird but cool end to the boss fight.

Hey, its full of spoilers, guys! Pay attention!

Also, Adam, About the manga:
Manga = canon. I can't provide enough reasons for this, really. For starters, it was published on Nintendo's japanese website. It was also illustrated by the cut-scene artist(s) of Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission, and several of the unlockable bonus pictures in Zero Mission adhere to the manga's storyline: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnKZ0yWfF0w&feature=related (look after the middle)

Wait, I was just reading somewhere else that there was an art book as a bonus for preorders at Gamestop? I didn't get one! Is this true? Or was there some sort of catch? Is it worth going complain to them about?

Edit: Eh, believe what you want about the manga. The guy who did the art work is not the guy in charge of the series' plot. Bonus pictures aren't exactly proof of anything, either. They're "bonus" for a reason.

@Adam: It is indeed true, I have mine right here...

Also, about the manga, it is canon. Where do you think the scene with Samus and Ridley from Other M came from? Where do you think it was established that Ridley was the one that murdered Samus's parents? Yup, in the manga...

EXCITED, SOZ

Rawr!

Adam

Some things they've borrowed, yes, but the creators have the right to pick and choose. It's their series, so any works related to it done by others is fair game for them to draw from. Personally, I see no reason to believe that everything in the manga is considered to have happened. All you list is one incident, rephrased again differently. But you can consider it to be canonical if you want. Not trying to change anyone's mind. I just don't see it as such.

Regarding the art book, how is it? Is there a lot to it, or is it more of just a pamphlet? I'm wondering if I should bother them. No way to prove I didn't get it, anyway.

@Adam: It's quite nice, actually, though smaller than it appeared on GameStop's site. It's not a booklet, it's a rubbery sleeve (it's nicer than it sounds) that houses 16 high-quality art cards of various characters and locations in Other M, with descriptions of each written on the back...

Adam

I knew I should have asked when I picked it up. But I was so eager to get home and play, who can blame me. Maybe the clerk didn't want to give it to me without my explicit authorization.
