Me too. Imagine if it introduces time travel?

It looks like a race to escape the federation though.

I seriously hope not, stupid ideas like time travel and alternate realities is ALWAYS a sign a series has jumped the shark and is out of ideas. I should know, I'm a transformers fan and Simon Furman thought it was a good idea having his swan song of the original Marvel series in Regeneration One to use an alternate universe Matrix of Leadership to vault Hot Rod into Rodimus Prime. Which is just STUPID!

It's like having a major Marvel event depend on a What If.

Glad we finally get to continue the story after Fusion. We've gotten the remakes out of the way, and they were great, along with the Prime sub-series and Other M, but now it's time to see what Samus is up to currently. thumb up



Prime is the successor, it became so much more than the classic side scrollers.

Metroid isn't exactly know for it's super engrossing story. Nothing wrong with time travel as long as they use it as an interesting mechanic in-game.

Zelda never had a unified history like Metroid, each game was like another "What If" with a new Link and Ganon.


Even if it pretends to a history, every Zelda and Link and world is radically different.

Okay, but I still like the mutation idea crossed over from fusion.

And no Ridley or mother brain or queen, please. That’s what made Metroid stand out.

A space battle, I like too.

We got Kraid back, so why not other boss fanservice? That seems to be the direction this game is going anyway; a mix of old and new, which is always preferable to "in with the new, out with the old".

okay, okay, just as long as there’s some new.

I've got the game pre-downloaded.

Pretty pumped.

I actually bought my Switch on a whim during the pandemic. I was in the store and happened to see they had like 4 in stock, so I grabbed it. I'd been thinking about ordering one online, but COVID jacked the prices up. I wasn't expecting to spend 300$ that day, but I figured I'd better take advantage of the situation since they were selling out super fast. I didn't want to give some jackass on Amazon 500-600$ for one either.

I'm not sure what the situation is now. I hear they're still somewhat harder to find, although easier than before.

Beat the game earlier. It's a lot of fun. A huge improvement over Samus Returns.

I did like Returns' aeion abilities better though like the beam burst, though makes sense for the ones in Dread to be based completely on stealth.

Got to the final boss earlier, though just taking my team with the collectibles first. It's quite a ride, definitely one of the best games in the series overall. I wouldn't call it #1 like others are, but within my top 5 for sure, and certainly my game of the year.

Flash shift is way better and more fun than any of the abilities in Return IMO. Plus the way Aeion recharges in Dread ensures you can use it very liberally.

Price drop? For a Nintendo Game? You're going to be waiting a long time.

I'm still playing through it, but I am having a blast. Just got to Ghavoran after the exposition drop.

And I love Samus speaking Chozo.

Nice little lore reference, as Samus should absolutely be fluent in that language.

Or at least a dialect of it. It sometimes seems like there may be multiple Chozo languages.

Depends. Do you like Metroid games? If yes, then you'll likely enjoy this one. It's really well done.

Although, yeah, I don't recommend waiting on a price drop if you want to get it. 1st party Nintendo games are often full price for the entire duration of their console generation(or longer). Sometimes they go on sale for 10$ off I guess, but you might be waiting for ages.
