    My worry is that Corruption won't be playable using Prime/Echoes default controls.... rumours abound though that the conversion exists and has done for a while. I imagine Nintendo are just sitting on it until the time is right to start building hype for Metroid Prime 4.

    I can’t get over how amazing yoshi’s Island looks on the wee screen. The only time I’ve ever played this game properly was on the GBA release so this is a real treat.

    I do wish I’d had a SNES when Super Metroid came out. I can totally understand why folks who played that to completion back in the day would hail it as a best ever. I would’ve spent hours and hours puzzling about how to get to Meridia or how to get out of Norfair, about what those jumping monkey things were all about. But I’m really glad to have been able to play through it. I’ve got a save right before the end and I’ll be going back to 100% it.... like I did with Zero Mission and Other M.

    Its one of the main reasons I’ll never part with my WiiU. And Resi4.

    The very last dick move by Super Metroid designers - the unavoidable Mother Brain beam that can actually kill you. Some energy drops would’ve been nice to stop you getting past and impossible point. A few times I had two blocks of health left and that’s not enough.

    Super Metroid complete - 7:37. All hail the switch and it’s amazing SNES emulator

    the shop was closed down, but your downloaded games are still there. Same with the WiiU. After Super Metroid, I'm tempted to go back to Metroid Prime on the Prime collection on the WiiU - although I'm hoping we see that re-released on the switch.

    If we get an N64 one, it'll be this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Virtual_Console_games_for_Wii_(North_America)#Nintendo_64 Can't see any others appearing. TBF - that's a fuck of a list, but they'll need to do some real work on the emulation because, unlike the best SNES 2D games - most of these will have aged terribly. At some point we're going to see a Gamecube emulator....

    as long as there is a Nintendo console, it will never be the last hurrah for the SNES.

    I've also shoved the Star Wars games on it and a bunch of others.

    I don't think Secret of Mana has aged well having played it quite a bit on the SNES mini. I'll give you Contra/Probotector.

    yeah - after typing that, I immediately changed my mind for the same reason.

    The Switch SNES games are so well done that I think I'll punt my SNES mini.

    yeah - the first one in the room didn't do his jumpy attack for some reason... regardless of how often I tried to get behind him. Then this morning they started doing flying kicks and then I realised I could get them when they turn yellow. Battered Ridley on my second go by focussing on using the charge beam first instead of spamming my missles. Then the fucker has stolen whatever was in the room! TROLLED! I was expecting some kind of suit to help me through the lava. I had to check online to find out how to get out of Norfair. I'd been at that bit with the hidden wall a few times. TBH - I think that's a bit of a dick move by the designers there. Working my way back to my ship and I grabbed the 'hilariously' named Spazer. I'm now unstoppable. I'm glad I went back to this... I knew it was a real game but life was too short for me to put up with some of the more frustrating parts. I've got no shame in using rewind and save states given it's my third full attempt at it.

    Tell you something... that hidden wall you need to ‘find’ to get out of Norfair is bullshite
  16. Finished it with the kids... brilliant stuff. Needs a second series though.

    I got to the room with the silver pirates with 30 health... no amount of rewinds was helping me there.

    No game does I AM NOW ALL POWERFUL like a Metroid game Note. There are no such things as Metroidvania games

    Holy shit! It IS much easier to do wall jumps in super Metroid using the digital buttons. As a result, I know have the plasma beam! YASSSS

    tbf - from what I've seen so far, it's very much an optional technique

    Yay! Finally made it to the Metroids in Super Metroid and now have the Space Jump. Beating Draygon the quick way was great. I’m now well beyond where I’ve previously given up. switch is best

    oh definitely... In many ways I wish I didn't know that I got to Meridia by using the power bomb... that must've been a great AHA! moment back in the day.

    Determined to finish it this time...
