(1:18:25 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: erm

(1:18:26 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: In this

(1:18:30 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: that definitely weren't in II

(1:18:38 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: But hunting Metroids was the whole purpose

(1:18:45 PM) (rawkhawk2010) lol I heard coins being collected as the Metroid was transforming.

(1:18:46 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: of II

(1:18:56 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess the show floor opened.

(1:18:58 PM) (rawkhawk2010) And thought I was hallucinating

(1:19:11 PM) (rawkhawk2010) lol.

(1:19:24 PM) (rawkhawk2010) No Donkey Kong

(1:19:29 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: pft

(1:19:35 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) These different Metroid variations haven't been in nearly enough games.

(1:19:36 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: He gets to be a Rabbid

(1:19:39 PM) (rawkhawk2010) ...even though I have a feeling DK will be in Odyssey.

(1:19:45 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: and Odyssey

(1:20:00 PM) (rawkhawk2010) The Rabbid makes DK look bad though tbh.

(1:20:03 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Two Super Metroid composers on the team.

(1:20:21 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: (and worked on every Metroid title since)

(1:20:24 PM) (rawkhawk2010) #LOCKTHEMUP

(1:21:02 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: In this game there are GATES

(1:21:11 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: That you open with Metroid DNA

(1:21:23 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: (instead of ominous rumbles)

(1:22:43 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) I hope the Spiderball controls are better. That was one of the worst parts of Metroid II.

Metroid Samus Returns spring ball acquired
Spring Ball acquired! (But we're using the Spiderball.)

(1:22:49 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The 3D effects help the world

(1:23:00 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: but wasn't the whole point that Reggie introduced this on the New 2DS XL?

(1:23:09 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh crap this guy is speaking in ENGLISH

(1:23:17 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought he was a Japanese guy

(1:23:35 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Samus woke this guy up from nap

(1:24:07 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "all of the enemies have been redesigned for this version"

(1:24:43 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf is this guy saying

(1:25:12 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) Bomb jump hax

(1:25:13 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: This looks hard

(1:25:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "Metroid fans have spent hours trying to get to the craziest places using bomb jumps"

(1:25:40 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Maps have been redesigned.

(1:25:47 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And Jose keeps babbling incoherently.

(1:26:33 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: TELEPORT STATION

(1:26:36 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: NEW FEATURE

(1:26:57 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So this is opposed to speedrunners saving and quitting and restarting?

(1:28:17 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: VARIA SUIT

(1:28:29 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Samus without the shoulder pads looks weird.

(1:28:58 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ooh I remember this music

(1:29:25 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Apparently Metroid Prime 4 is being developed by Nintendo in Kyoto.

(1:29:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Lightning Armour ability

(1:29:28 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Not Retro.

(1:29:29 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) Ya. Magmoor Caverns from Metroid Prime.

(1:29:53 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: dat resource management

(1:29:53 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I dunno about anything Metroid except for what's in Smash and Hunters.

(1:30:06 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) Hunters was garbage.

(1:30:10 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) Unspeakable dreck.

(1:30:13 PM) (rawkhawk2010) lol

(1:30:43 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I think everyone on the staff has played Metroid Prime except Rawk.

(1:30:50 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I know Kamek adores it.

(1:30:50 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I've played it.

(1:30:58 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I have it.

(1:31:01 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ...uhhh

(1:31:05 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) Fighting Gamma Metroid.

(1:31:08 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I have the whole trilogy.

(1:31:10 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So why don't you know anything about it?

(1:31:12 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So do I!

(1:31:17 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I borrowed them from a friend and...never gave them back.

(1:31:20 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: .......

(1:31:21 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: <_<

(1:31:24 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) So stole them.

(1:31:35 PM) (rawkhawk2010) And quit playing Metroid Prime when I got to an area where Samus was burning.

(1:31:40 PM) (rawkhawk2010) from high temperatures

(1:31:44 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Magmoor Caverns?

(1:31:45 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Then I quit.

(1:31:48 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Maybe.

(1:31:57 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I didn't like it.

(1:32:22 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Is this the Fire Emblem Echoes of Metroid?

(1:32:30 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Literally, yes.

(1:32:31 PM) (rawkhawk2010) A reimagining of the second game in the franchise?

(1:32:49 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder that Metroid II was also like

(1:32:55 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: the least cared-for game in the franchise, too.

(1:32:59 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Like Gaiden.

(1:33:03 PM) (rawkhawk2010) yeah

(1:33:12 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Just like Zelda II, too.

(1:33:18 PM) (rawkhawk2010) what the hell is it with that?

(1:33:19 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And SMB2 USA

(1:33:40 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The only one that did the opposite was Mega Man 2

(1:33:45 PM) (rawkhawk2010) And Star Fox 2

(1:33:49 PM) (rawkhawk2010) because it was literally canceled

(1:33:51 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: lol

(1:33:53 PM) (rawkhawk2010) despite being completed

(1:33:55 PM) (breezinabout@msn.com) lol

(1:34:36 PM) (rawkhawk2010) *checks Nintendo's stock*

(1:34:44 PM) (rawkhawk2010) It's been rising since noon.

(1:35:45 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Is Samus gonna get this uppercut for Smash?

(1:37:01 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: eeek

(1:37:06 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Are they showing the whole game?

(1:37:08 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Zeta Metroid

(1:38:14 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: game over

(1:39:18 PM) (rawkhawk2010) can't these people spend some time outside?

(1:39:38 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Theresa keeps getting game overs.

(1:39:55 PM) (rawkhawk2010) wait, Samus can infinitely jump?

(1:40:08 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Depending on her upgrades.

(1:40:22 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Not from the start.

(1:40:32 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: (hence why the bomb jump hax exists)

(1:41:24 PM) (rawkhawk2010) teresa sucks

(1:45:07 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Why is a guy who can barely speak English a translator?

(1:45:10 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Where's Bill?

    1. ...yeah, I wonder how that'll be...handled.

  2. Is there going to be anything on the new Metroid Prime?

    ReplyDelete

    1. My best guess is "no", since all they had to show was a "4" and it's a 2018 game meaning it shouldn't even have been there.

      Delete
    2. Thank you for those details--I hadn't seen it myself, only heard it from a friend and he only said there was going to be a Metroid Prime 4.

      Delete
    3. In the log, you see the picture of the 4? They had the 4 for a second or three and then it was Metroid Prime 4 and that's it.
