Turns out it took a while for me to finally get around to this properly, but here I am, complete with The Lady's old-style 3DS and claw-hands.

Samus feels wonderful, doesn't she? I've heard people question the controls, but she moves like a dream in my hands (no). The parry's glorious, natch, and I seem to be getting better at it.

Killed me first Metroid too. All good fun thus far.

You and your pianist's hands, able to adapt to (nearly) any control system... *groan, grouse, grumble*

The thing I'd forgotten was how stressful Metroid games felt. Whether it's the confines of the Chozo Ruins or the SA-X pursuing you in Fusion, or just the simple combination of ambient music and not being able to save everywhere... Let's just say I can't play it for almost an entire evening, like I can Mario or Zelda. Taking a break now!

I has five Metroids in my pocket. So the game has only just begun. It feels good, the first 2D Metroid I've properly given a chance to.

That's a big part of what makes them so great, and so unique. One of the only places I've ever gotten a similar feeling is Da*is silenced by a precision snowball to the face which may or may not have had a rock at the centre*

I found the amount of save points in Metroid: SR to be quite generous, at least compared to most other games in the series.

Shocked
I'm about 3 hours in and had genuinely forgotten about the parry mechanic. I am bad at this.

Laughing That's the best part of the game! Nicely done sir.

They're not too bad, and when I died a couple of times I just got sent back to the start of the room. A generous game indeed, but it still feels stressful.

Getting sent to a planet to wipe out a life form that's threatening the universe isn't going to be a walk in the park though, is it?

True, but neither should saving the world from the apocalypse be, and this is more stressful than BotW! (Apart from a couple of bits when I was underprepared for Lizalfos right near the start.)

It's got its claws in though (and is draining my life force Pale ). I've just swept through most of Area 2 in one sitting, now onto Area 3. Looks like the biggest area in the game...

I didn't have too much bother with the controls until one specific point - you'll know it when you get to it.

I don't think I've got there yet. I am, however, through to Area 4. I have more than half the game's Metroids!

The areas have felt a bit samey, to tell the truth, except when they've gone lava-ish. I think the unremarkable non-music might contribute to that.
