I've got one more sector to go (sector 3 I believe?) before I've gotten 100% of the items. Now, as to where this hidden secret is at the end, I have no idea. I can't seem to find any logical place where he could be. And that's with a gigantic glowing gold star on my map telling me where to go.

@Kid_A: He's close to where the map marker is, SPOILER in order to get there you have to take a detour through Sector 2 /SPOILER...

@Chrono Why are you trolling up this thread?

he's not trolling, i just think he's a little confused about what he's trying to say.

adam's comparison to snake is pretty apt. if he can be a bada** while answering to someone, why can't samus? when you think about it, she takes orders all the time: the luminoth, aurora units, admiral dane, and adam malkovich have all had her running errands at different points in the series, not to mention her early military days under adam, all without much protest from fans. before this game people seemed to be able to understand that she can still be an independent, super-competent loner who occasionally works with others, why that's different now, who knows.

in other m she follows orders by her own choice; she's under no obligation and could walk away any time, but chooses to stay in order to protect her friends. she demonstrates how much it's her choice by (spoiler) disobeying her orders at the end of the game. everyone who keeps complaining that samus is too independent to follow anyone's lead obviously hasn't finished (or even played) other m, because she actually demonstrates that she's the exact person the critics want her to be.

anyway, if you say that the switch to 1st person is easy... but complain that you get hit... the process of elimination doesn't leave much to blame but your playing. the controls in this game are hard, harder to learn than any other game i can remember in fact. but that doesn't mean they're not great once you figure them out. spend some more time practicing and i'll bet the problems you're having will be solved.

for starters, don't go into 1st person in the middle of a swarm. you have to make an effort to create a safe window to enter 1st person, it's as much a part of the strategy as anything else. take them out with your diffusion beam first.

@soccer: It's not really hard, to be honest, as long as you've got good reflexes (unless you're playing on Hard mode, that is, romulux can attest to that)...

When I get my money from my summer job, I'll get the game for sure.

These last two missile tanks are driving me crazy. They're in the main sector, in the northern region. One of them is in a big elevator room that you access by going south of the main elevators. The missile tank is in the shaft, but the shaft is locked, and there's no way to go south from this room without taking the big sector two detour. The other missile tank is two rooms south of the other one, to the right of adam's command post. Another locked elevator shaft. Help me before I kill myself. IGN's guide has been useless.

I know, but the room directly to the east of that room has an elevator I need to get on, and it's red and flashing so I can't get on it

Oh well, If only you were able to point it on a map, it would be easier but I dont think there is a map of the game yet on the net.

Yeah, crazy right? I looked for one earlier. It's the room that's directly connected to the room with adam's command post on the right. Small elevator that only goes up half a floor

My thoughts on Other M (from Facebook blog I wrote a few days ago.)

Other M is a bit of a departure for galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran; it is a new direction for the series in general and it also reveals a completely new take on what a Nintendo game can be.

Shall we begin?

Ok, Metroid: Other M marks the first time that a Nintendo series protagonist isn't silent -- Samus speaks and she speaks a lot. Many of the professional reviews have criticized her characterization as being "emo," but personally I have always viewed her as someone with a deep and unsettling past. I mean her parents were murdered right in front of her, she grew up an orphan raised by weird bird things, and she is typically almost always alone in her exploits. It would be more outrageous if she WEREN'T emo.

The game is extremely cutscene and story driven, unfolding very much like a movie. This is a bold new direction for Nintendo, a company who in recent years has tried to go with as little story as possible in their games. I must say that there are times when I'm playing Other M that I feel like I'm playing a Metroid game developed by the creators of Halo for Xbox360 and that's a good thing. It's a different thing and it's a refreshing thing.

The graphics are also something to note. I do believe that these are THE BEST graphics capable of the Wii. The cutscenes literally look like scenes from a CGI movie and it's astonishing. Gameplay is also very fun, challenging, action-packed and diverse. I love the fact that it's back to a 2D experience reminicent of Super Metroid, but it's also cool that they incorporated Metroid Prime's first-person view in there as well. My only eeny, teeny complaint is that battling in first person mode can be a little bit of a pain. Basically you just keep on shooting missiles and hope you don't get hit enough times to die. Other than that, I really can't say anything negative about the game at all and am having a (morph) ball.

When I close my eyes, I see pixilated blood.

There we go! Anyways thank you for your thoughts and for moving them into an appropriate thread.

Sorry if someone has answered this already, but I skimmed the preceding pages and can't find anything.

I am stuck for the first time in this game. And by that, I mean not only do I not know where I need to go next, but I can't find a single passage I haven't yet explored. (That last bit is obviously where I'm going wrong, so HALP ME!!)

POSSIBLEMINORSPOILERSBELOW!!!
I killed Ridley, and now can't figure out what to do, or where I need to go.

Erm...that's it. Anyone remember what I need to do next? I made it back to the "main" elevator room, or whatever, but the elevator door is locked, and the other two doors open to paths that lead only so far. What am I looking to accomplish here?

Also, I've played for about 8 hours right now. How near am I to the end? All of this 8-10 hour completion time stuff leads me to believe I must be getting close. Or sucking horribly.

Just managed to finish it today, the final final boss included, and I give it a 9.5/10. I didnt have any real problems, except the script and voice acting were bland at points and this is pretty much nintendos first time doing complex voice acting (do a barrel roll isnt very complex ) and script writing, so Im sure it will be better next time. Ive also never heard anyone internally monolouge (duh ), but I imagine it would be a lot like the way samus talked. So not too many problems with it, I can see why metroid fans opposed to change wouldnt like it, but all in all, fantastic

@CB: I don't recall exactly what you have to do, but you should have all you need in order to get to Sector 0 (which you access through Sector 2).

I just figured out what your icon is, too, and it's hilarious. I didn't know Anthony was really a chicken in a man suit...

He's a man full of secrets.

Ah, okay. So I need to get back to Sector 0. (That's the area in which the game began, right?) I guess I either need to use the Super Missiles or the Grapple Beam to get back there, as those are my recent exploratory acquisitions, but darned if I can find a place I haven't used them yet.

Hmm. Anyone else remember what room or something I should be exploring? I won't say I haven't walked in circles in this game before, but this is the first time I don't even know what I'm trying to find.

Well, there should be a yellow diamond somewhere right? Im pretty sure there is always a diamond telling you where to go, I may be wrong though. I think at that point though, I think you are supposed to go back to sector 1 to the bioengineering lab
