The games are fine, in my opinion. Though Fusion was kind of weird but fun (cuz u had fight yourself) in the end it had a bittersweet sensation, because you did new things to end up only on the same spot as all other games... Maybe the game itself is not the end, but how we get to it, as all games must be. And Zero Hour was cool, because when
my ship got cracked open after I ended up everything in the world I was like "WTF?!?! And my suit?!?! What's this shitty pistol??? SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT" but in the end it was really neat because you had to prove yourself one again ONLY with your skills and wits, to obtain the ultimate suit and fuck shit up for the Space Pirates and the final boss (Again).
In the end both were good games, but none of them comes close to Super Metroid. Damn, not even nowadays games do it...
And yes, this is a really good img of Samus and I aprove
I'm guessing you got Fusion off the Ambassador program? XD That's personally one of my favorite Metroid games, and Zero Mission ranks pretty high as well. I'm glad to have a digital copy of it though, that way I can keep better care of it. I always seem to lose my copy of Fusion after finding it months later. DX
Either way, Samus is looking pretty spiffy here, loving the use of highlights to shine up her armor, and the shading is really dramatic too. That pose is totally Samus as well, nice job!
