Weirdness: A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Through Super Metroid
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
A long and confusing road
A little while ago we posed a question — is Super Metroid too taxing for today's gamers? This was based on the explosion of confused Miiverse posts once the title arrived for $0.30/€0.30/£0.30 on the Wii U eShop, as some gamers grappled with a retro title that resolutely refused to guide them through each step.
One post that attained borderline-meme status over on NeoGaf was one that rather humorously asked (poor grammar intact), "y cant metroid crawl?". That same user has continued charting his journey via Miiverse, and has now successfully beaten the game — no doubt with some help and guidance from fellow gamers on Nintendo's social network.
We've reproduced this below for your viewing pleasure, but of course it contains SPOILERS for those that haven't had the pleasure of beating Super Metroid. So consider this to be your emphatic SPOILER warning; look away now if you don't want to see the end of the game.
Some have also suggested that this could be a "joke" account. That's a possibility, but we're not so sure, as it may just be a gamer fresh to the experience that's happily posting whatever thoughts spring to mind. Whatever the case, the full epic journey is below; enjoy.
