It honestly wouldn't surprise me if Ridley Scott played Metroid, I don't know if the question has ever been presented or asked publicly to him. I'd imagine a creator of a series would look into something that has proclaimed inspiration from their own work, especially when it's from a company as big as Nintendo. If not then it's a series of odd coincidences.
The artist formerly known as Kabrelle, I truly believe that one day there will be a shot that will take the stank away.

RE: Metroid Prime Trilogy Connections With Prometheus And Alien Covenant (Beyond Original Series)
I'm going to post this here since it's nitpick-y and I don't think we need a dedicated thread for this, but General Discussion and Metroid Games have the same description, A place to talk about whatever you want; shouldn't Metroid games have a slightly different variant, otherwise I could technically talk about my fascination for Bisquick in there, right?
RE: What does everyone think of a Metroid anime like Castlevania?
Nintendo has mentioned that they are interested in pursuing anime TV shows for their franchises, there's a Splatoon anime already in the works. I could see Metroid being on the tables and I would support it 100% of the way.
Not sure if this is a browser specific issue as I have not loaded MHQ on anything else but in Opera the site seldom displays live notifications. When I go to refresh only then do I see new activity. It will occasionally blip with new notifications but it's rare.
RE: Rank the Core Metroid Titles!
Metroid II - This one is odd for me because I rate it based on story and atmosphere rather than gameplay and mechanics. This was the title where the big event happens, we annihilate the organism the series was named after. We see them in their world and witness them metamorphosis.
Metroid Prime- Loved the vivid environments and it had a colorful selection of bosses, the game is a literal translation of a classic Metroid game into a 3D world.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption- The Prime formula that introduces life beyond xenoforms and Samus herself that broadens the scope of the Metroid world. It took concepts from all existing Prime games and morphed them into one.
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes- Enjoyed the light and dark concept, and the game produced my favorite suit in the series, the Light Suit. Had some cool bosses but towards the end the game really mellows out for me. I think I like this game more conceptually than I do playing it at times as it can feel like a chore now and again, but it's still good. Multiplayer was a blast for its time.
Metroid Prime Hunters- Yet another Prime game making the top of my charts, regardless of its redundant bosses I truly enjoyed traversing the various planets and fighting other bounty hunters (the bounty hunters themselves all being wicked cool in their own rights). The multiplayer was a great experience and one that I wish would be replicated in the future.
Super Metroid- I never played this game until about two years ago truthfully speaking. I don't know if I missed out on the nostalgia but I found this game to be okay. Not bad, but not at all amazing as everybody around me hyped it up to be. Traversing Zebes again was fun and I enjoyed the maps overall. The final battle and the Hyper Beam was awesome.
Metroid: Zero Mission- I'm not particularly fond of the NES Metroid to begin with, but this game did it some solid justice. The remixed soundtracks were great and the overall redesign was done well. I didn't enjoy the Zero Suit segments that much but moving past those and going back to the world to explore what you may have missed was a lot of fun.
Metroid Fusion- I have a soft spot for this game, seeing as it was my first true Metroid experience, however upon replays I find that the incessant dialogue between sectors is mildly annoying (especially when you know the game so well) and find myself wishing there were a skip option. The X were a nice spin on the series and the Fusion suit was truly unique, but the anticlimactic ending and constant hand holding marks this game lower on my list.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force- I am always an advocate for a good spin off game, and one with a group of four Federation soldiers sounded perfect, and then the game was shown to the world. I absolutely hate this games art direction. I loathe the chibiness. The maps are pretty barren and the missions don't take much effort to complete, but the game did have a nice variety of skins and Blast Ball was a kind of bonus. With friends this is a great game to play and it does ensure a fun time is had, but Hunters and even MP2 come to mind as a fun multiplayer game before this does for me. Ultimately this was a missed opportunity and a let down.
Metroid: Other M- I don't hate Other M. I don't love Other M. It played okay, visually it was alright, the cinematics however are very hit and miss. Other M is the game that I was okay playing through once and 100%'ing, and then afterward found abysmally boring. This is the Batman Forever of the franchise and while I won't ever dismiss the game and the tale it tells, compared to others in its series it is garbage.
Metroid Prime: Pinball- It's pinball. I have to be in the mood for it.
Metroid-Nope. I hate this game. Areas that look the same, an unforgiving replenish system, no real coherent way of knowing where it is you are supposed to be going without memorization, I am amazed and thankful this series had sequels after this game. I get that it's an NES title, but I'll play a good NES game like Star Tropics or Super Mario Bros. over this any day. It had a soundtrack. There. There's some included positivity.
