whats that optional beam you can get in super metroid that shoots like 3 lines or whatever?

I like that one, very useful beam.
Rest in peace, walkazo.

The Spazer Beam. Even though the Plasma beam shoots 2, that's like the end of the game so I would agree with you.

I'm biased towards the Ice Beam, though to be honest I can barely remember the others from how long it's been.

I believe it's the Crystal Flash.
Samus must have 50 or less energy, nothing in her reserves, and at least 10 Missiles, 10 Super Missiles, and 11 Power Bombs.

Samus must morph into a ball.

Holding down + aim up button + aim down button (default L and R) + fire button will initiate the Crystal Flash. This will result in Samus rising into the air in a ball of light, suitless, while her energy tanks rapidly refill


Today's question, favorite Ridley and/or Meta Ridley design? I'd have to say either Super Metroid's Ridley, and Prime's Meta Ridley

Man, I absolutely love the Metroid series. I have a huge thing for dark sci-fi. Awesome visuals, cool enemy and creature designs, unique main character. I love it. My favorite Metroid game is Super Metroid tied with Metroid Prime. Other M's gameplay was good in my opinion, but the story and characters were bad...especially Samus.

To answer the above question, I agree Prime's Meta Ridley looked pretty awesome. Robotic alien dragon thing. Hell yeah.

For a future Metroid game, I would love a more open world system where you could travel to the different planets and revisit them, kind of like in Mass Effect. More emphasis on exploring would be great. The world of Metroid was always so cool-looking to me.
I would really like to see Daisy and Waluigi in a main game. Really.

Well I just got Metroid Prime trilogy, so I'll be able to play Prime 2 and 3 shortly.

Today's question,what is the most annoying boss? I'd have to say Kraid in the original Metroid.

For me it would be Nightmare for Fusion.  I mean, it isn't hard really, but I kept making mistake after mistake.

I'd have to agree with you the SA-X is spine-chilling. Today's question, favorite boss in each game you've played,then favorite of all time from those bosses?

metroid: ridley
metroid 2: didnt play much so i dunno
super metroid: certainly ridley, best boss fight ever
Metroid fusion: That robot thing that fights you as you have to stick to the ceiling to fight it, idk it was pretty cool.
metroid zero mission: Ridley

Metroid prime: i dont even remember the bosses to be honest
Metroid prime 2: Every freaking dark samus battle, they were so awesome.
Metroid prime 3: Rundas, freaking awesome character and the battle was insanely intense

overall best boss was super metroids ridley.

Very amazing fight from beginning to the end, also helps the boss theme was really awesome too.
Rest in peace, walkazo.

I liked the Final SA-X fight in Fusion, it was fun.

I also liked the fight against the first few chozo ghosts in Prime, though they were more of a mini-boss that turned into common enemies. Actual boss is a tie between Omega Pirate for just being kind of intimidating in size and the final boss for how you were forced to use everything you had acquired over the game to beat it.

The bosses are fun but none of them stand out as an overall favourite, they were never the interesting part of the game when I played tbh.

The SA-X fight from Fusion is the only one that sticks out in my head.
