I’m spending more time fighting with the Wii remote more than the enemies. I waited nearly 2 months for this shit only for it to completely make the game unenjoyable and unplayable. I feel like I’m playing the game with a damn Guitar Hero guitar.

What the fuck was Nintendo thinking making this only playable with the Wii remote and nunchuck? This would be perfect to play on with the Pro Controller.

I finally got the remote and nunchuck to work properly after messing with the sensor by putting it in different spots. The spot I have it in now I guess was the sweet spot and it was working completely fine for my 6 hour marathon today.

I'm loving every minute of Metroid Prime so far. I was worried about the game being having a first-person perspective compared to the side scrolling Super Metroid, but my worries were gone once I was finally able to play it properly.

The gameplay feels great and nothing feels clunky. Only time it was clunky was when the remote wasn't working at all but that was for obvious reasons.

For a game made in 2002 the game's graphics still look great and I'm assuming the Wii beefed them up to look better for the Trilogy set.

The music is awesome too and was ecstatic to hear some familiar tracks when traversing through the various areas of Tallon IV. When I heard Ridley's Hideout theme from Super Metroid play when I got to Magmoor for the first time, I knew I was in for some shit. The new music is also great. I was in the Chozo Ruins for a long time and I never got tired of hearing the funky beat that plays throughout this area.

From a 2D-side scroller to an FPS game, this feels like a natural evolution done right. It's still the same Metroid.

One detail about this game that I love is the HUD/visor on Samus and how it really feels like you're inside her helmet as she moves and looks around.

Also I was completely blown away how you could see her eyes and face every time you get hit with something that leaves a bright flash of light. You can even see her blink too sometimes. These details just add to the already immersive atmosphere the game has and whoever thought of this is a genius.

I wonder if this was an inspiration for Bungie to have Chief's visor visible in Halo 3, and that game came out 5 years after this one.

God this game is just incredible. I'm loving everything about it so far.

I'm liking the enemy variety. At first I hated fighting the Space Pirates but once I figured them out and acquired more missiles/beam attacks, they were so much fun to fight. Their headquarters in Pendrana Drifts was a tough fight but making it out of there alive felt great.

The boss fights are pretty cool as well. Some of the mini-bosses you fight are rather... interesting and unexpected. I'm looking forward to what I'm going to run into once I go farther into the game.

I acquired the Ice Beam before stopping. I wish I had these days off from work so I can continue playing. I don't want to stop.

I guess now I have to find the grapple beam and another suit upgrade to continue further. I have no idea where they are but one of them has to be in Phendrana Drifts somewhere and that's where I'm at right now.

I also completely missed a Save Point in Magmoor Caverns that I didn't even see until I was going back to Phendrana Drifts.

You get the grapple beam surprisingly late. I would have expected it to be earlier.

I've also recently started playing these games at my friend's house. I just got the plasma beam.


 
Hahahaha very funny Zonda

God I hope Nintendo gets the person(or people) that made the soundtrack for this game back for Metroid Prime 4. Every song I've heard so far in this game is an absolute banger.

There's another area in Phendrana Drifts that plays like a futuristic version with a funky bass line of the area's original song and this song sounds like it came straight out of Ratchet: Deadlocked even though Metroid Prime came way before it.

It's Kenji Yamamoto. He has done the soundtrack for all the good Metroid games (Exept AM2R and  Maybe Return of Samus I'm not sure if that was him too.)

Found the gravity suit and now I’m making my way through the Phazon Mines.

I almost died as I only had 1 energy tank left. Thank god there was a Save Station right after that morph ball maze with the electricity.

Alright I guess I have to backtrack and find something that’s gonna help me get across this gap of radiation in the Phazon Mines. I tried everything I could to get across but nothing worked.

Backtracked out of the Phazon Mines and I ended up finding the X-Ray Visor and Plasma Beam. With those, I went back to some areas in the Chozo Ruins and Phendrana Drifts. I found some extra energy tanks, a bunch of missiles, and more power bomb upgrades. I also picked up a couple of those Chozo artifacts and took them back to the temple. I wonder what happens when you get all of them?

I stopped somewhere in Phendrana Drifts because there's still some hidden places I gotta explore now that I have the Plasma Beam.

Missile count: 130
Power Bombs: 5
Energy Tanks: 10

13 hours into Metroid Prime 1 so far and I had my first death. I was planning on finishing the game without dying once. Oh well.

Found some more Chozo artifacts as well. I have half of them collected so far.
