Anyway, when you want to see if a terminal still has information you should just scan it, rather than watching a cutscene where some guy you do not care about types on a keyboard to a jitter camRecorded in Log
(J-74: Payment, Press start to read)We went against protocol when we retried the alien material and brought it into the city limits but times were tough and the Esison freight exec [[Gold:Hill]] was offering so much it seemed foolish not to take him up on his offer. The truth is that we were paid exactly what we deserved! Look upon our ruin and know our folly! Our time here would have stayed tough had we not been seduced by his promises, but now our time is up!J-74 logs
->UMS 9583 part two
The potential payloads this system is capable of delivering, both in the physical transmissive sense, are astounding for their size. Disappointingly, it is far from its full potential. Several of its components seem to be completely non functional, incompatible with whatever fuels the rest of its operations. These have been easiest to remove, almost as if they were rejected by the rest of the body. Further study on them has yielded nothing.
Another function of the arrow beam's charged shot would be to stick into the Jafrac barricades of the type encountered where you first started the game and then twisting them as makeshift keys, as a call back to all that stuff you did in Prime 3
. The arrow beam would upgrade the super missile beam combo into the Lagrangian Javelin
which turns intangible
enemies tangible again when it passes through them.
In fact going back to the start will immediately put it all to use as beyond the seal pathway you will come into the lair of (Morphology:Meta Ridley, temporal distortion detected, press start for further viewing) The fight would be pretty much the same as it was in Metroid Prime, the only changes being less room to move and your different equipment(you take more damage than the Phazon suit but a charged arrow beam beats the crap out of his chest plate) up until you get to the phase where his wings burn off, at which point a purple cloud will form above the dragon and descend upon him, also the area will warp into a local vaguely resembling Quadraxis's Lair, complete with the damaging atmosphere (you do get a safe zone this time though).
Initially Dark Meta Rildey will fly around blowing out a gas similar to an Ing Claw's followed a puff of fire that ignites it in a big explosion, which he avoids by using the Hunter Ing ability to turn intangible. You just have to avoid getting hit by everything else enough for the safe zone to recover your health enough (or you could venture far enough into the room to avoid it if you think you will take less damage from the atmosphere, your call) at hit Ridley with the Javelin so he will get caught in his own trick. Seeing how that does not work out for him he will then start turning invisible (in reality, warping around a super fast speed the way the Chozo Ghosts do, charging the clock stopper can halt that silliness if you have enough ammo) trying to hit you with fire balls from behind, coating himself in energy and flying at you the way warrior Ing somethings do and flying in erratic patterns while whipping his tail.
After enough hits to the chest Dark Ridley will slump over dead then fade away to reveal Albon raider, this time wielding two
staffs which it spins together to reflect all you beam weaponry (If you are out of missiles and clock stoppers use the grapple lasso to hold his rod still then shoot him until he breaks free). After he dies the dark aether-like atmosphere disappears and the screw attack comes back online. For now though, it is a dead end ahead so go back and see where the screw attack will be more useful.
