I wasn’t expecting Prime 2 to be way more cinematic than the first game

I beat the game’s first boss and met that Luminoth guy after that. Wasn’t expecting dialogue from npcs either.

It is now possible to beat Super Metroid in less than 41 minutes

the WR for this game has been getting beaten almost every other week of this year, and it's just the same two guys (zoast and behemoth) beating each other's records back and forth, back and forth, with the third best player being 21 seconds away (which is a lot)

no major new strategies have developed since the 2000s, either; it's purely just a playing of the game better

Bump before this thread gets locked.

Haven't been able to play because I haven't had that much time and the time I did have time I was playing the MCC.

I'll try to get back in tonight when I get home from work.

Alright I finally had the time to play some more and get back into it.

The whole fantasy elements that the game has thrown so far is confusing to me right now. Maybe the game will explain it a little better as I progress further.

I’m also a little disappointed with the game’s soundtrack at this point as nothing has stood out except for the remixed Space Pirate theme. I’m hoping it gets better and provides some bangers like the first game here soon.

I do like the fact that there’s so much more stuff to scan and read in this game compared to Metroid Prime 1. I’m bringing out the Scan Visor every 30 seconds to see if there’s new items to scan and read about. I don’t even think I’ve read all of those Marine logs yet.

Edit: There’s a creature called a “Sandigger” LMAO

The hell, man? Prime 2 has the single best Title Theme in the history of forever.

I know this game has the darker atmosphere and tone compared to Prime 1, but the music I've heard in-game so far hasn't really interested me.

The first game had the Chozo Ruins with a great exploring track, and Phendrana Drifts had the greatest snow environment music I've ever heard.

Like I said, I'm hoping the music gets better.

Went to Dark Aether for the first time and I gotta say, having the torches as the only safe spots for Samus is pretty cool.

Having to shoot the beacons to light up more of them and having those creatures walk around with that shield around them was a nice twist on making the torches more interesting and makes Dark Aether a more intimidating place. I also like the sound effects for these shields. They sound very ominous and alien.

The boss fight to get the Jump Boots was also a nice twist as you can only stay inside of the shield that's there while the Jump Guardian attacks you. Kinda sad that this boss was super easy to kill.
