@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...

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...

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.

Yeah. It's actually labeled as an Art Folio so it makes sense. I thought it was a pretty nice bonus, considering how pretty some of the art is.

@Adam: I think you should go ask for one and see if they still have any left, I mean, you did pre-order the game...

@Kid_A: Yup, it was well worth pre-ordering the game for...

Can those of us who have finished at least the first part of the game have an exclusive and ridiculously spoiler-saturated discussion about the game's ending?

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.

prime (which takes place after metroid) specifically says that he was revived with cybernetics in some of the scans. he never really dies in any of the trilogy fights, he just kind of falls of a cliff at the end of prime 1 and disappears into a cloud of phazon in prime 3, so it's not until super that you explicitly see him die at the end of a fight. trying to justify why video game bosses appear over and over is silly, but i think their explanation is pretty decent.

for what it's worth, i love the way they brought him back in other m. it adds so much weirdness to his character... you will never look at him the same way again.

SPOILER ALERT
hi.

^kid a , i think at this point anyone reading this thread is pretty much asking for the game to be spoiled. i myself think keeping the warnings up should be good enough.

This fight is stressful. The Metroid Queen (I think that's its actual name) releases some Metroid babies that try to latch onto you and drain your life. Using your sensedodge and/or running around like a crazed gazelle, try to blast the Metroids with a charged shot. Wait till they're all in a cluster, as your Diffusion beam will allow you to hit them all at once. The reason you want to try to hit them all at once is because if you hit them enough, they'll freeze temporarily. While frozen, blast them with a Super Missile (or, if there's a few of them frozen, you can use lock onto all of them with your whatsitface missiles). After you kill the Metroids, you'll enter a little cutscene, after which you'll be stuck in first person mode. Charge shot the monster's stomach, and when he gets up and opens his mouth, grapple beam the inside of his mouth. This will propel Samus into his belly. Quickly charge up a Power Bomb (you can use them at this point) and kill him for good.

i know these are way too big, but screw it:
Untitled
Untitled

this is by far the best looking game on the wii; yes, better than galaxy 2, star successor, and corruption (even if it did have more detailed art direction). it's the only wii game i've played that truly looked like a next gen game without any compromises.

There is now a thread to talk freely about Other M here (thx, BellGoRiiing :3). If everyone would be so kind as to use that thread for spoiler-tastic comments, and leave this thread for people who don't want to be spoiled re: plot/strategy/whatev', it would be greatly appreciated. :3

Romulux, that makes sense then. I've read that some of the Prime scans are actually inconsistent and/or non-canonical, but I personally would take them for "fact" unless explicitly shown to be in contradiction. I hated scanning all the enemies and stuff, but I loved the ridiculous amount of lore and backdrop added in the Prime games. And yea, I love his explanation in Other M, too, now that I've seen it. Kind of funny, really, which seems out of place, but who cares!

@Adam: It's because the PAL version of the scans differ from the NA versions for some reason, but I take the NA version of the scans to be canonical...

I just got the speed booster, so I'm guessing I haven't played very much compared to the rest of you. :D I'm enjoying this game far more than I thought I would, so I'm pleasantly surprised.
