    ITT: faggots who don't realize that the baby metroid getting killed deeply scarred Samus's psyche. She even reflects on it in the opening of Other M. Sure, she's lonegunned every fucking mission to that point and killing aliens wasn't that big a deal. But the baby, a FOUL XENO, gave it's life to save her. Which is why she felt compelled to save the etecoons and Drachorus, who in turn repaid the dept and saved her.

    Too bad it doesn't go farther then like 2 meters, 5 tops. Plus acid is pitiful tier compared to what Samus has to fight on a daily basis.

    >Can gain memories by eating

    To be honest this seems a really off the wall thing for the Emperor to give to a warrior designed to be the ultimate killing machine. Seems like it would go a lot better with some kind of genetically engineered hard boiled super detective. I guess it has some limited utility while tracking shit or something.

    >Can regenerate wounds instantly.

    They aren't fucking necrons you retard. They can CLOT near instantly, but if Spacemarine Billy Bob's Space Full Plate gets pierced by Space bullets, hes still gonna be walking around with the wounds, just they wont be bleeding out into his suit. Internal Bleeding is another matter though, since the Larraman cells clot on exposure to oxygen.

    On the other hand, Samus has the fucking swiss army knife of personal armor. That thing has like 5-6 different guns, all of which are chargeable, a portable missile launcher, a flamer, and a bomb dispenser in morph ball mode.

    If we want to be fair about it, Metroid was ruined as soon as they took her out of the powered suit. No, i don't mean by putting it in 3-d or sex appeal or whatever, but by fleshing out the rest of the universe in the wrong damn way.
    Samus quickly stopped being unique when nameless soldiers, other mercs, and countless other races all had access to the same, or better technology than her Chozo suit, a relic of the most advanced lost society ever.

    Samus went from the sole hope, to someone constantly inferior surviving by underdogging her way across the galaxy.

    It's a little-known fact that over the course of a long campaign of borderline terrorist actions, Samus destroyed every tube in Space Pirate territory. Stripped of their source of power, the pirates turned to Science Team, who decided that the best way to unfuck their situation would be for everybody to do lines of Phazon off each other's carapaces.

    A potentially related little-known fact is that Tyranids are deathly afraid of two foot-wide spheres and the color orange.

    No, Space marines are weapons of terror. They're skilled, they're big, their weaponry is loud and they are intimidating.

    You give a guy a rocket pistol that renders people into chunks of bloody flesh with each shot and put him in a place where everyone can see him do it and your enemy is suddenly demoralized... Doesn't matter that he cannot do this for long, he has a giant impractical loud as hell chainsaw sword to hack people to bits with when he runs out of bullets. You give him heavy armor so that almost all enemy attacks are deflected off of him, and most personnel weapons that aren't serve to make him only look like an unstoppable murder machine. You run a giant religious propaganda spiel that makes these guys out as the god-emperors angels of death. You set these guys up so that they can tear apart tanks if they need to and in *very* rare cases deal with foes that no one else can.

    These guys are skilled warriors and all, but they're mainly propaganda and terror weapons. The *truly* effective warriors are smaller, quieter and far more deadly... things like vindicare assassins, but vindicare assassins cut off the head, they don't demoralize enemies and simultaneously inspire allies.

    Space marines are highly limited in number so you have to be careful *how* they're deployed too, 99/100 times it's far more feasible to just land 20billion guardsmen on a planet and say 'fuck you', or deploy an eversor temple assassin to take someone out in a way that's so messy and obvious that no one dares speak of it.

    True, but for Metroid it is a feature, for 40k it is a limitation of the game engine. If the engine was buff enough 40k games would let the player blast through everything and anything with enough shooty-shooty. Metroid will still make you get the right coloured thingie to fuck the door open and forget even thinking about blasting a hole in the wall next to the coloured door.

    Buulllshit. As in 40k, the game does not reflect the fluff, unless you truly, genuinely believe that spess pirates manifest from thin air when you leave the room, and that their only means of travelling from room to room is by shooting doors with missiles they don't have.

    Colored doors actually make the game easier.

    So you blast through the wall next to the door, and then there's an acid pit you can't swing over because you don't have the grappling beam because you broke sequence. What now?

    If they didn't have colored doors, nobody would ever finish the goddamn thing.

    Ahhhhhh, here's a /tg/-worthy topic.

    Samus, by a long shot.
    Rapid fire plasma weapons: check.
    Anti-armor, anti-personnel missiles: check.
    But most damningly, far superior manuverability.
    Samus doesn't have to anchor the fight, and has far more ability to disengage at will then the Space Marines do to force her into melee combat -which is where she's genuinely at risk. Bolter rounds need to penetrate the target to really work, but I think it's fair to give victory in a chainsword brawl to the Mehreens. They're probably strong enough to tear her limb from limb, armor or no, and she's never had especially stellar hand-to-hand abilities.
    This makes sense, most of what she hunts is best dispatched at range after all, but for purposes of this match-up it's her Achilles Heel.

    Her missiles aren't anti-armour.
    Her plasma is weak as well.

    She can't even kill local fauna unless they wave a large, glowing weak spot at her.

    The only way I can see her taking out a marine is if he disassembles his backpack and lets her take potshots at the generator within.

    How would 40k factions fare against the critters found in the Metroidverse?
    >> Iron Lung 11/18/10(Thu)10:12 No.12842700
    Eh, it's not a stretch that she can employ anti-armor projectiles. And in 40K, which it's apparently assumed is the native universe for this brawl, plasma is plasma. Early 40K plasma weaponry had variable discharge settings, Samus could just prefer kid gloves shooting to save her suit's power source for harder targets then the basic crawling spiky thing.
    And none of that's as important as her ability to move and command the fight's tempo. Assault marines could be a problem of course, and heavier weapons would be imperiling.
    Assault Cannons like the kind Terminators prefer are nothing to get cocky around.

    You're probably assuming this is a fight out in the open. Since when does Samus do that?

    She can shrink down to a ball and move through tiny holes and vents, move at super-speed, grapple and air jump and all kinds of crazy movement shit. Even Spess Marinez will fight her on her terms, and when she fights on her terms she wins.

    Interesting idea....
    Good at first, but progressive poorly. Mobility issues would start at nuisance grade, and rapidly escalate to operation failure inducing. Tanks and the like are probably automatically useless.
    Also environmental hazards are common as hell on Metroid planets. SM's are 'ard enough to cope with acids and poisonous atmospheres, but lava/magma are still likely to be deadly as hell to them.
    I don't think the SM's, or LAWL IG, get by effortlessly, or perhaps not at all.
    However: Seraphim. Having small, more maneuverable armor/jump-pack combinations better suited to sustained flight probably fair quite better.
    Plus, they take their flight combat training with an emphasis on close-range gunplay. That's going to be very handy.
    Really, given their lighter weights and smaller profiles the Sisters are actually well suited to an operation on Zebes or one of the rest. 300lbs of SoB platforming probably fairs far better then a near-ton of SM trying not to fall through the weird crumbling terrain.

    Samus can find the weakness in any armor thanks to the scan visor. She also has an Heat visor, echo visor, and some other visor from Prime Echos.

    Samus' weaponry in the 2D games can faze through anything, rock, steel, tubes, it does not matter. You may be protected on the outside, but all of your organs will get fried.

    Her Grapple beam can latch on to any especially magnetic point and rip it off.

    Her dodge ability can make her invincible to any artillery shot at her, and immediately shoot a fully charged beam to her opponent.

    When all else fails, she has the Power bomb and shinespark . Which can vaporize anything they touch.

    And lets not even talk about Samus if she has the Phazon system with the X-ray visor.

    If anything, Samus is TOO overpowered. Against ANYTHING. I would even go as far as to say she's a Mary Sue in terms of abilitys.

    If those points were stated, I'm sorry. The thread was kinda TL;DR. My points was also probably the same. I apologize for that too.

    If the Energy Tank system is anything to go by, Samus's suit, by itself, is not all that strong, and instead relies on a coating forcefield that is renewed whenever it recieves any sort of assault.

    So if we go by that Samus would be fighting at full capacity and unharmed till you manage to pierce her armour, at which point she goes down from any sort of assault.

    When I say melee, I mean like actual _melee_. Not shooting at close range, but actually killing with limbs and/or CC weapons. Like how Samus fairs with a power weapon in her face and an angry marine trying to tear her leg off.

    I only played Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime: Hunters, and Super Metroid, so I don't know a lot about the metroid universe. Maybe this is a good thing, because it allows me to extrapolate from the imagery in the games I have played and make a setting without it being tainted by canon. The end result probably will not even resemble the canon Metroid universe, so I might as well give it a shot.

    What makes me want to make a Metroid-styled game is that Metroid looks a lot like dungeon-crawling in space. There are ancient, unexplored temples and planets that are crawling with exotic and deadly creatures and rigged with traps from a forgotten but advanced race.

    It wouldn't be too difficult to throw together a 4e-style "points of light" in space, and given that the games are known for their eerie aesthetics and being set in unexplored worlds, fleshing out the civilized areas and history doesn't seem absolutely necessary at first.

    One element of the games that would be very nice to preserve is the "magical" element of ancient technology. I don't know why, but Samus's equipment always seemed very fantastic to me compared to other sci-fi games. Maybe that is because its function is never fully explained and it has strange capabilities.

    As far as I know, the problem of humans carrying space marine bolters is that it's about the weight of the weapon, not the recoil.

    Also, magnetic boots.

    Also enhanced muscle strength for bracing.

    In Other M, instead of having to find all your stuff you have it all at the beginning, but it has to be authorised first. 'Don't use your power bomb, it will cause too many civilian casualties / collateral damage'

    Reasonable right?

    There's this part where you have to run through a hot place full of lava, that constantly drains your energy. Why don't you use the Varia suit? BECAUSE ADAM HASN'T AUTHORISED IT, HURR DURRRR. Samus doesn't even say anything, she just takes his orders like a bitch.

    That's not even mentioning samey corridors, boring enemies, making Space Pirates boring again and NO EXPLORATION.

    Thats just what I was able to find in 5 seconds of searching. I'm pretty sure one of the soul drinker books mentions how hard it is for this inquisitor who got a bolt pistol from some marine to fire it properly due to the recoil. The weight is a factor, but theres also the fact you're firing a weapon designed to be braced by a 2 ton super mutant.

    is total utter bullshit, as Space Marines have no problem with the recoil from a Bolter.

    Mm, true.
    Same reason you can fire a firearm underwater, after all.
    Theoretically you could have a gyrojet that uses an electric ignition as well.
    That might not matter, though. No atmosphere, no rotor use. It's all gas-propulsion or nothing...
    And AFAIK the issue of Bolters and Recoil lacks a definitive answer. There's no apparent consensus among BL authors, nor as to why the SM Bolters are so much more massive yet Bolt Pistols stay the same size while sharing the same round.

    - A vaguely explained "energy cannon" with astonishing rapidfire ability
    - A missile launcher
    - A BIGGER missile launcher
    - A triple laser
    - A gun that shoots plasma
    - A gun that shoots some form of near-absolute-zero condensate
    - A dark matter beam and can cause a dimensional fucking rift
    - A gun that fires pure concentrated sunlight (wtf?) and can generate a miniature sun
    - A gun that shoots homing sonic bursts and can SPLIT THE FABRIC OF SPACE AND TIME
    - A laser that shoots pure phazon at shit
    - Power bombs, which, let's face it, are basically meltabombs.

    And that force is held back by the Space Marine's muscles and his powered armour, as Space Marines do not suffer from recoil when firing their bolter.

    The idea of a Space Marine FLOATING through space shooting is idiotic, as the Space Marine could easily fire his bolter away from the space ship, to attach his magnetic boots to the hull of the ship/attach some space walk lines to the ship.

    People always think the Imperium is the big driving genocidal force in 40k, as evidenced by the fact that if it's from 40k, it's either Eldar, Human or Ork.

    It isn't the Imperium that's killing all the other aliens.

    True, and like I said I do not mind the Wii controller at all, just at those times when you had to scurry around durring a boss fight it didn't help when you lost control because you turned to quickly and aimed too far away from the sensor.

    The marines experience less recoil because they mass 10 times as much as an unarmored human, probably, and the round is a rocket anyway so the initial push isn't all the thrust it's got to reach the target.
