Samus by Gx3RComics Samus by Gx3RComics
Samus Aran from the Met- well you know where she's from. I'm not a huge fan of Nintendo games but I've always loved the Metroid games right till Other M.

They've all been really amazing (except Other M) and just a pleasure to play. So I figured I'd give a random doodle some live with some vector art showing Samus in her battle damaged Varia suit.

Which game was your favorite? Which armor? Let me know. :)

Tools: Flash, photoshop.

Really nice job here.

I do agree that Metroid was an awesome series... until Team Ninja did that thing where Samus suddenly became damn near helpless and always seeking the approval of somebody.

Yeah, and the whole crying in fear over Ridley..the guy she's killed 5 times before.
It was just a bad game overall sadly.

My least-favorite part was the fact that Samus was clearly in a furnace, and she needed Adam Malkovich to tell her to activate the Varia Suit.

So, not only was she helpless, but her intellegence plummeted.

Then again, Team Ninja wasn't exactly the best choice for a game with a female lead. They did make 3 games that were basically excuses to put their female Dead or Alive fighters in bikinis, after all.

I beat the game and I couldn't sell it fast enough. I know a few people that actually like the game and say Samus wasn't stereotyped.

All those helpless scenes would have been fine ...if it was the first time out, this is her ...what 8th mission(that we've seen)? :| It think she has it down.

Also, have a laugh and compare it to the Fusion story. Pretty much identical.

Well, everybody is going to defend stuff. Hell, there are a few games I openly trash (and most deserve it) and there are people that like 'em a whole lot.

Problem was that the helpless stuff would've worked if it was her first serious mission (maybe something that was even before Zero Mission when she was still a teenager), but by then she was battle-hardened and understood that she should always expect the worst.

Yeah, it's almost identical, but Fusion had a better approach.

True, though I never understood defending a game when the company has a marketing dept for that haha.

Yeah that's what I'm talking about, it copied fusion and had a worse telling of the story. But oh well.

I didn't much like Other: M, to put it less 'cruel' to the game, it felt like they copied and crapified Metroid Fusion story and just made Samus a stereotypical character. I hated everything about Other: M haha, I couldn't sell that game fast enough.

The other Metroid games? Fantastic, fav 2D: Zero Mission, 3D? Prime.

Also thanks for the comment! :)

I have to say that this reminds me a lot of the Prime series. And don't think of me as some FPS fanatic, but the first Prime game was my absolute favorite Metroid, followed by Super Metroid. My favorite armor? The Phazon suit in Prime.

It's okay to be a FPS fanatic, I've been playing them since Wolfenstein 3D back in the day!

Prime is certainly a great chunk of the series. I often annoy people by saying Super is not my favorite but Zero Mission is. Better controls/visuals/etc I just like it more.

Phazon suit is pretty awesome, I thought about recoloring this a few different ways to do that but, nothing yet.

Thanks for commenting! :)

Thank you for saying so!

And you're free to like Other M! No one is right, I personally hated it. I did at least beat the game so I can say that I did try to like it right? :P
