Discuss the Metroid series here.
First off, do you know how awesome Ridley is? 'Cos he is.
Metroid: Other M, Sexism, Sakamoto, discussion goes on for ten pages.
There, that's out of the way.
I'm not usually into FPS... are the Prime games any good?
-prays to God there won't be another Metroid: Other M flame war-
Yeah, I think Ridley's pretty cool, too, especially as Meta-Ridley. In fact, the first fight with him in Metroid Prime 3 is one of my favorite boss fights in the series.
I've only played Fusion.
Yes. Very yes.
I felt sorry for Ridley in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
The sociopathic, fire-breathing killer dragon from beyond the stars?
...Can't say I did.
This gonna be a Miru thing?

Technically, that was a animate trophy of Ridley. Therefore, technically, he didn't get sucked up into Subspace.
'Sides, he tried to grind Samus into a shiny meat patty. Bastard deserved what he got.
The prime series is awesome. Play it. Really, Metroid Prime is the closest we've ever had to a 3D Super Metroid (Magmoor is Norfair, Tallon Overworld is Brinstar, wrecked Orpheon is wrecked ship/Maridia, etc.). The bosses are some of the most epic in video game history, and the world feels lush and immersive.
As for discussion about the series... If there was to be a Metroid game on the 3DS, should it be first-person, third-person 3D, or a sidescroller? I'd prefer a 2.5D sidescroller.
I'd like a sidescroller with the awesome lore or at least way of presenting lore of the Primes, personally.
I still would've liked to play as Ridley in Brawl, but Charizard is plenty awesome on his own, and I can pretend. Also Samus and Pikachu being BEST FRIENDS FOREVER was far and away my favourite Smash team-up: just the right mix of crack and awesome to work perfectly.
I ship Samus/Pikachu.
Just so you know.
Everybody ships Samus/Pikachu.
What's the alternative? Samus/Adam? Fugeddaboutit.
I don't ship it per se, but then I barely ship anything, and see their relationship as more of a mentor-student kinda thing.
Samus is totes Pikachu's Trainer.
Ridley/Pokemon Trainer FTW.
Crack Foe Yay at it's finest.

I have bad Ridley/Pokemon Trainer lemon fics in my head.
Yeah, Ridley is awesome.
...How would they even kiss?
This is gonna bug me now.

Privately, away from the prying eyes of Adam and the Galactic Federation.

...Why am I even thinking about this. D:
To purge my brain: Samus all SRS BZNZ getting a mission briefing with a happy smiling Pikachu on her shoulder. Cutest image y/y?

That's really the best way to answer that question.
You know, Crocomire and Yakuza should team up for a buddy cop story. Kraid can be the gruff chief.
....Pikachu for Samus' pet.
This needs to happen. That'd be cuter than a reformed space pirate adopting a kitten with a broken leg.
