Hi, I'm new!

    Hello all, everyone's favorite Metroid brain, FatherBrain230. Glad to see the forums are back! I was just as surprised as everyone else that we would finally be returning to our former glory. Now I can finally begin plotting my galactic takeover!

    I am a former co-webmaster of the now-defunct Metroid.eu, and was in full control of the site's phpbb forums, including its CSS, moderation, and structure.

    I got into Metroid back in 1996, and I attempted to achieve the Super Metroid world record fastest 100% completion as a child in 1999, but I was unable to reach the top. I am usually very knowledgeable regarding details of Metroid games, but sometimes I may mix up some details with others.

    I am always open to civil debate as to how the series could best progress forward. I am also a part-time streamer (twitch.tv/dracofalconi) usually playing Metroid games, including Super and Fusion, but this is rare.



  • Wait, so who runs the site? Does Gendy run it and Elias is just there as the main attraction and communications guy or what? XD


  • administrators

    Gendreavus runs it, I just sit back in my retired state and "consult."



  • @eliasthompson Oh, okay, so you try your best to take it offline, but Gendy and Saturnaut keep it online? XP


  • administrators

    @amwolfmusic Something like that.



  • @gendreavus Makes sense.



  • Hi there, I'm Nostradankus, sometimes also TheRealNostraD or rarely tNEOXXI. I've gotten into Metroid with MP:Hunters and because my best friend was a huge Metroid fan. I've not been on the forums before, but I've watched the MHQthon this year and like 4 years ago I think.
    The only games that I consider equal to Metroid is the SoulsBorne series, so feel free to talk D E E P L O R E with me!



  • @nostradankus A fellow lore lover? We need more people like that on here! Lol.



  • Hihi, I'm new here. Long winded introduction.

    As you can see, I'm Froyo. I became a Metroid fan ages ago with either Prime 1 or Prime Hunters, don't remember too well, and became fond of the series since then. I've played the Prime trilogy, Hunters, Zero Mission, Other M and Fusion.

    That said, I hadn't touched the series in literal ages after playing Other M, and I was pretty young and didn't know much English when I played the others, so I don't remember too well, please bear with me xD I started replaying them again from Zero Mission onwards after E3, so hopefully I'll be back up to speed soon :v

    I learned of MHQ from Elias, and I'll need somewhere to fanboy about the series so, uh, yeah lol.

    /Rant

    Tl;dr nice to meet you all :3

    @cody how do I down vote a post here


  • administrators

    @eliasthompson I refuse to educate you on the workings or existence of the admin control panel.



  • Hello! Darren here from Shinesparkers. I've done quite a bit around the community over the years, such as heading the Harmony of a Hunter albums. More relevant here though is that I sometimes drop in for the MHQThon, usually commentating with my friend Falcool.

    I'm happy to see MHQ live again!



  • I'm not old enough to really "remember when MHQ was around," but I too am happy to see another good metroid forum :)


  • administrators

    @gendreavus we have an admin panel?

  • Hi, pretty new to MHQ. My name is Sidiouth. I never knew about MHQ until I saw MDB plugging the marathon recently.
    My first Metroid game was Prime 2, what a god tier choice I made at that random Gamestop.

    My story such as it is, is that I come from a family of gamers, but I never played. The household favorite was Zelda. But I was too young to really be interested in playing it myself, I was content to watch. At some point I started playing games, but it bugged me that none of them were really mine. So I went to Gamestop, browsed the GC games and saw Prime 2. The booklet looked cool and I'd at least heard of Metroid through Melee. So I said whatever and bought it. When I got to the Boost Guardian and the game decided it was okay with crushing the hopes and dreams of 12 year old me, I went back out and bought Prime 1. I must have read that booklet 10 times on the car ride home. From then on I spent every waking moment on Wikitroid learning everything I could about the series. And the rest is history.

    @sidiouth Prime 2 is where I point people that want to play a new series because everything else they play is too easy. They come crying to me later about Boost Guardian and Spider Guardian…
