Last night I finally beat Metroid Fusion. Ironically, killing Ridley was easy but kiling the SA-X (and the Core-X it releases) was extremely difficult. I linked it to my Gamecube (where I had already beaten Prime) and uploaded the old-school original Metroid! Huzzah! Now I don't have to drag out my old NES to play Metroid. They MUST do this for Punch-Out!!!, Kid Icarus and Zelda and I will have it MADE.

One gripe, though...

Ridley is in every Metroid game now (wait a minute...forgot about Metroid II on Game Boy, which I never beat...is he on it?). I have killed him zillions of times by now and don't get me wrong, he is nasty and cool and rocks and I love to shoot him. But here's my question:

WHAT ABOUT KRAID?!?!!

Kraid gets no love. He was awesome in the original Metroid and was huge and gnarly in Super Metroid. He even made an anticlimactic special guest appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee last year. But in Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion...Ridley is there of course, but Kraid is shunned? Why, Nintendo, why?

I played through both games thinking "okay, any minute now I'll run into a 20-story version of Kraid" but it never happened. When I killed Meta-Ridley on Prime I thought "yeah, Kraid wasn't in this game because they saved him for Metroid Fusion" but it was not to be!

Kraid fans of the world, unite!

That post made me cry tears of absolute JOY. Yes, maybe he shall be in the Prime sequel, or else I'll write an angry letter.

Seriously, he does have some swank possibilties for a boss battle if they did it right.

Punch-Out and Zelda ARE in animal crossing the problem is the besides the Action Replay there is no way to get at them yet.

Ridley wasn't in the game boy Metriod, Parts Unknown, that game had 4 types of Metriods as common mini-bosses, and the queen Metriod as the boss.

Thanks, Scott!

Further griping:

I spent a few hours Saturday beating the original Metroid and I must continue my rant against Ridley. He's a pussy in the first game! All you have to do is stand in front of him and fire missiles and he can't even hit you! He doesn't even move except for jumping!

Kraid, on the other hand, moves all over the place and fires flippy horn thingies and spikes at you. He's much harder to kill (I prefer rolling into a ball and bombing him to death).

Ridley sucks.

And you know what the worst part is (PRIME SPOILER AHEAD!)...


















When you beat Ridley in Metroid Prime, his carcass falls off a cliff, never to be seen again...until the next game. Of course, they are setting up his return. BLAH

Well, Metroid Prime takes place before Super Metroid so of course you'll see him again...

Usually it's $5, you can put down more if you want, at the EB near me though you have to put down $15 if you want the disc.
