@DarthNocturnal took a bit of getting used to, but what I found the most useful if you’re in a spin jump is to press Y to fire and get out of spin jump, then press B right after to prepare the shine spark, then just the direction. Should usually work with that.

Just beat Hard for the first time at 2:49 yesterday!
I was following the steps used in the most recent speedruns and attempting all the glitches and sequence breaks. Some of them are really tricky and took me several tries, but I managed to do just about all of them, my in game time is just over an hour longer than the current world record.

Where is a good speed run guide to check, just watching YouTube videos?

I beat the game Sunday and 100% artaria and I guess I will go for 100% items before trying hard mode and then maybe try speed running.

On thing if you get a fast completion time does it unlock all the slower time rewards too?

@blaisedinsd here’s a couple I followed.

HardPelicn, the first one also posts some guides on how to perform some glitches.
And yes, so if you beat the game under 4 hours, you get the 8 hour and base rewards as well. Only for that difficulty btw. I still need to beat normal mode under 4 hours now.

Getting the timing right on the E.M.M.I encounters is incredibly satisfying, it's probably been the highlight of the game for me.

100% items get! The rest of the items that use shinespark weren't that bad really. One other in Ferenia had some tight timing, but I got it before too long.

Had a few goes at the final boss. Almost had them once, so it hopefully won't be long now.

EDIT: And it wasn't! Beat it on my first attempt after a break. Awesome game overall.

I can't believe how fun is to replay this game multiple times. I mean, it's a thing with Metroid games but this one feels even better.

My save file is showing under 20hrs so far, but my activity log is showing over 30hrs. Makes me wonder if the save file timer stops when you pause to look at the map etc. because I haven't spent any time with the game loaded but me not actively playing or checking the map. Anyone else get that disparity?

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@gcunit Can confirm that it is paused in the map and some similar events. Cutscenes can be watched or skipped as the time for those is always added on no matter what. Also when speaking to Adam, the dialogue in those scenes do count, so if doing a speed run, it is recommended to skip through it as fast as possible.

@yokokazuo Thanks, I wasn't thinking about it from a speedrunning perspective, but that makes sense now.

So, I've been stuck on Escue for a couple of days (maybe 20-30 attempts over that time) when I finally decided to slow it down and focus on dodging attacks and only getting one or two missle hits in between dodging their attacks rather than going for 3 or 4, I beat it on my first attempt with the change on tactics!

Anyway, I wanted to do some exploring but the first room I open with the storm missile has two Chozo Soildiers in it!!

Help! On the Experiment boss fight, when I counter it's melee attack the cutscene doesn't happen. Is there something more I need to do to trigger it? This must be the hardest one so far...

@Quarth I don't remember there being a cutscene? I loved that fight though.

@Quarth from what I remember, I don't know if you can actually parry it. I know it has a small window that seems like it can when it lunges at you, but I tried time and time again and I was never able to actually land a counter

yokokazuo

@Quarth did you fire any missiles? It may only start once you start shooting it perhaps.

@NintendoByNature it can be a bit tricky to do, you need to make sure you’re up close to its face when it’s firing that laser so you can counter when it is about to lunge. Then just spam missiles during the cutscene.

I'm not a huge Metroid fan, but of course I bought Dread lol

I'm liking it. One of the barriers for the original games was that I felt the movements were very stiff and unforgiving, but this is smooth as butter.

I definitely spent many deaths running head first into an EMMI and trying to time the button press, but then I started using my brain haha

@JoyBoy @NintendoByNature Yeah, there's a cutscene with Samus riding it's head, that should trigger when you successfully counter the attack, but I don't get it to work. If you look at videos on it, you'll see.

@yokokazuo Yeah, I do that, but maybe I'm too slow? I just get some health and missile drops.

@NintendoByNature You can either just fire your gun, or missiles. Both work. I spam Y as soon as I counter him, and once the dynamic scene starts, I start firing missiles. The second phase still got me though lol.

JoyBoy

@Quarth which attack though? Are you referring to the one where he creates this huge blast which forces you to position yourself next to it's head?

@JoyBoy Yeah, when you position yourself close to its head, right after it finishes the blast, it will do a quick attack that you can counter. I guess if I counter it successfully and hits it with missiles quick enough after that, the cutscene will trigger.
