25th Anniversary Metroid Prime Run Completed September 19, 2011Posted by Maniac in Site News.
After one month of continuous play, I have just completed the third game in the Metroid Prime Trilogy. As I did with the previous two games, I was able to 100% it by collecting all expansions and collect all in game log scans, but Metroid Prime 3 also had extra credit bonuses for certain tasks like saving troopers in a firefight or scoring high in target practice.
People do celebrations in their own way. This has been a long time coming for me. I bought the first Metroid Prime game for the GameCube back in 2003 and was never able to complete it. Even though I did get copies of Metroid Prime 2 and 3, I wanted to beat the first game before tackling the next two. With the free time I’ve had this summer and a copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy I felt now was the perfect time and I wanted to let my readers be a part of it.
Its been a very long month but now my Metroid coverage will start to wrap up. I’m going to do two further things for the site and then end it.
First, I will be giving away friend vouchers to anyone who posts up a friend code on the site (I have plenty for either version of Metroid Prime 3). I promised I would offer to give away credits and now that I’ve stockpiled a good amount I want to offer them to my site readers.
Second, I’ve decided to do a discussion video on the game series. I will do a final talk about what I liked, disliked, and my favorite moments. That will be my postmortem on the event and the last posting I’ll do on it.
You can expect both very soon. Until then, here’s my game completion screen for Metroid Prime 3. 100% in fourteen hours. Not bad.
