    The Shackled Wolves - 2021 Games Completed Thread

    Shin Megami Tensei V (NS) What if a JRPG had huge, intricate maps full of elevation, jumping puzzles and the like? What if a JRPG focused less on quirky characters, and more on big idea beats for its story? What if a JRPG was more about the gameplay than the narrative? What if a JRPG was...

    Metroid Prime (Wii U) And with this, my goal of completing every Metroid game in this calendar year has been achieved.

    Metroid Prime Pinball (DS) When I said I was going to play the entire Metroid franchise before 2022, I meant every official Metroid game. The "campaign" remains as short as ever, lol. Fun pinball game, though.

    Metroid Prime Hunters (DS) 2 deaths were to falling into the depths of space, 1 was to the reactor meltdown sequence in the Vesper Defense Outpost, and the other two deaths were 1 death a piece to Slench v3 and Gorea form 1, respectively. Once again deciding to record it gave me problems due...

    Super Metroid (3DS) Completion Time: 2:34 Item Percentage: 72% I think this might be the fastest I've ever gone through this game, at least based off of in game time. Got an early Wave Beam by damage boosting and then wall jumping (thereby not needing the grapple and also not needing to circle...

    Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA) Did the "15% items or less" thing, in Hard Mode, and holy fucking balls I'm never doing that again. That is some tedious shit.

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force (3DS) Finally did a solo run, which leads me to this thought; this game is far more enjoyable with a squad than by yourself.

    Undercover Cops (SNES) I've been running attempts at this pretty much daily in between work, Dead By Daylight, and Metroid. Finally beat the fucker tonight. The mole boss is a fucking asshole every fucking time.

    Metroid Prime 3: Corruption* (Wii U) Apparently, I had never completed the Trilogy version of Corruption, so I had to finish a Veteran run that was probably like, over 10 years old (hence the *) before I could replay it over from the start like I wanted. Outside of some gimmicky motion...

    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Wii U) The title of GOAT rests heavy upon this game, but even today it wears the "best of the series" crown with pride, imo.

    Metroid (NS) I tried to play without a guide for like, five minutes before giving up and grabbing a map from online.

    Metroid: Other M (100%) (Wii) I bought the Japanese version years ago, and finally played it this weekend (outside of the intro section and the first boss you face with the 07th Platoon, which I had gone through last year). Funnily enough, the Japanese version has both English and Japanese...

    Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow* (PS4) I had played maybe 30 minutes or so before Dread came out, but this had to take a backseat to Mercurysteam's newest game. This caused me some muscle memory issues once I came back to it (lol I kept trying to press the left trigger to slide at certain points)...

    Metroid Dread (NS) If it wasn't for the possibility for recency bias this game might be slotted in as my third or second favorite Metroid. Easily Mercurysteam's most polished release, with a lovely steady 60FPS throughout the adventure. I haven't tested it myself but apparently it does...

    Castlevania: Circle of the Moon* (PS4) (from the Castlevania: Advanced Collection) Interesting note with this run is I messed up the order and did the zone Carmilla is in before doing Dragon Zombies or Death's zone; which made that zone really interesting as I now had to worry about taking...

    Posting this here since my post being too long prevented it from being posted in the one above. (Lydie leaning onto Juste like she is up there is the only "tangible" bonus you get for collecting all the furniture in game, lol)
