Very Good game but it is Metroid. Better than Other M but rather disappointing. Level design partly annoying because of Dead ends. Weak Soundtrack. E.M.M.I.s suck!
Super Metroid, Fusion or Zero Mission are more Fascinating even today. Didn`t finish Samus Returns yet because the DS is a cheap piece of plastic and I sold it asap.

Nintendo is pretty much dead for me. No new good games, no remasters which would be cool. The old stuff stays expensive forever. Their marketing policies just suck.
I`m happy about my Wii U for all the good old Metroid games and the Prime Trilogy. Luckily my son owns the Switch. Oh and don't forget these fuckin` Amiibos!!!
I am working on this also, going through extreme MGS2 for Great Dane before I start MGS3. Good luck!
Not sure when I'll go back for MGS2. Playing 3 and the games that continue Big Boss' story after on my way to PP on the 360 before the servers go down in March.
Nice! I have PP on my list as well, reach out if/when we can work on this together, I haven't looked at the achievements to see if we can boost any?
Not sure, I haven't looked a ton at them yet. I know Peace Walker has a few when I get to that after Portable Ops.
If you don't find anyone, let me know, I could join you, just not that day (I've got hockey on Tuesdays)
Feel free to join anyway, we don't have to do it on the set time or date since it only needs 2 people.
Most of the first person stuff is garbage. The PS2 original had pressure sensitive buttons. The Xbox systems do not.
So they had to move the lighter presses to different button. So not to fire a gun in first person, I have to press RB, then LS to bring up the gun, then hold down LB-

-and then press X to shoot. Once you shoot only once with a semi auto weapon, you then have to press LS again or X for every single shot to bring the gun up again.
It's just terrible. I recall the controls back on the PS2 for MGS2 and 3 took some time to get used this but this is not a good change at all.
So now to fire a gun in first person*
Least the third person shooting locks onto people.
That was hold RB to switch to first person. So you end up having to hold down both the RB and LB buttons to aim a 2 handed gun.
Then once that guns is done shooting, it goes away, and you have to press LS to bring it back up again.
I feel like I'm doing something wrong or missing something, but I do think it's because there's no pressure sensitive buttons.
I haven't played the game in about 15 years since it came out on the PS2, so hopefully I can get used to this.
Yeah, the switch to 360 controls really jacked it up. Also a tip, because I don't think they tell you: D-pad sneaks much more quietly than lightly tilting the stick.
Wow, Earthbound, that does sound awful. How often is 1st person needed? Are there levels/objectives that FORCEE 1st person?
I only played MGS1 and 2 back in the day, but yes, I do remember the pressure sensitive buttons on PS2, which was pretty revolutionary for its time
(but back then, we also did not have pressure sensitive triggers, so it was a give and take compared to modern-day controllers)
The PS2 shoulder buttons actually were pressure sensitive, too. In MGS3, if you were prone in the grass, pushing them harder made you raise up higher to look around.
I'm not sure first person is ever 100% needed, but it does help in a lot of ways. You'll need it to shoot the hidden collectibles, but those aren't hard to do.
It's really only an issue when you are forced to fight, before now it's been fine, so I didn't even notice the problems before now.
Before then it wasn't a problem. They do actually tell you about the stalking with the d-pad. That's how I'd been dealing with guards, sneaking up and garbing them.
To interrogate them to see what they had to say. So I hadn't even gotten into a gun battle until hours in when I had to for the story.
need a 3rd teammember anyone?
We go again. Any challengers?
Don't tempt me 😂

Thanks mate, this game is pretty easy to beat :)
This probably would be one of the hardest games out there if you couldn't use that invincibility
Lol, you can always use the save system to your advantage but it takes a lot longer to beat :P
I've heard about this :)

Seems he's still 5 ahead of me in just base game no DLC included 360 games though.
Ah, he's not completed a 360 games since 2018, so I'll over take him for sure.
well done man, way to go
That’s really impressive. Well done!
Super Gratz bro!
Woo! And with that I have all the 360 Halo games completed. They grew on me more after the first playthrough oddly enough.
That grew* That doesn't happen very often.
Halo wars is a great game
