    My main takeaway from that video a couple pages back is that some people apparently pronounce it vah-rye-ah suit instead of vare-ee-ah or varr-ee-ah.

    (It goes without saying that these people are wrong and should be put to death.)

    I always pronounce like it’s part of “variable”. Which as a bonus sounds like “barrier”, which it was meant to be originally.

    I think we all know what the real answer is.

    How does Adam pronounce it? :rotate:

    I think we're all missing the really important question here.

    Should Metroid Pinball be considered part of the Metroid canon?

    yes

    Samus is actually shot out of one at the start of the game so yes.

    I am fine with the suit having some augments that make things a bit easier, but I prefer the interpretation that Samus is partially ascended and it is her training by the Chozo that allows her to do all that stuff. The suit/upgrades act as focuses which make things easier, but if someone else were to put the suit on its just a bunch of metal. The Awkward Zombie explanation works the best.

    I forget which one that was...

    Samus is a strength/faith build; her power is partly her own prowess and partly zen kung fu monk magic. The suit is just to look cool, she shoots ki blasts out of her hand like Ryu from Street Fighter. The canon is just a tube.

    I mean, when the x-ray scope in the prime games showed her hand inside the barrel making different gestures for the different shot types, I kind of figured that's the general idea. It obviously contributes somehow though, since she can't do it without the arm cannon or relevant beam parts (IIRC in NES Metroid 1 the justin bailey outfit is no power suit, but still wearing the arm cannon). Otherwise ZSS' moveset would be a lot more like something out of Street Fighter or even DBZ.

    Hey check out this cool Metroid I got.

    Speaking as someone who's not in the US, any way to get that metroid? (We actually do have gamestop here, but they don't appear to carry it.)

    Edit: Is it the same as this one?

    No, it's massive and it's called Ultraviolet Glow Metroid. That one there is the non-glow original. It should be at EB Games or whatever your national equivalent is. It's rare. They're going for around $100 on ebay.

    Funny thing, the box of the Metroid in the article below it has the same exact tear in the box that mine has.

    I had read that they were limited to one per store.
    I'm shocked that any employee didn't immediately buy it for themselves and put it on EBay...

    They actually had two there, both with the same tear in the box actually. I picked the one that looked less dirty. You could tell people had been touching them.

    Needless to say I washed it when I got home. Baby's first bath!

    Edit: also they probably didn't know it's worth. Hell I didn't even know until I posted pics and people told me (after I had removed most of the internal packaging) and I sell toys officially for a living!
