Metroid : Armored Heart by Arrarra Metroid : Armored Heart by Arrarra
Recently, I bought the Metroid Prime Trilogy game for my Wii. As a huge Metroid fan, I had to. After days and days of intensively playing, I finally managed to obtain the famous "Mission Complete" on every three games. The only one I never actually played before was MP2... Still don't konw why.

So here it is, I feel like I had to draw something Metroid-related, to show the world how much I love these games... As I couldn't decide between every design of Samus' Power Suit, I decided to draw them all... Here is the order from top to bottom :

Power suit -> Gravity suit -> Dark suit -> Varia suit -> Light suit -> PED suit -> Phazon suit -> Fusion suit -> Zero suit.

As I didn't want to draw the Varia suit three times and just change its colors, I tried to create my own design on the Gravity and Phazon suit. I also made some changes on the Light suit and Zero suit.

Can't wait for Metroid Other M to show up ! Gonna be awesome.

And you ? Which of Samus' suits do you like the most ? :)

(Done while listening the "Relic of the Chozos" album from OCRemix. Great music !)

I have to say, I liked Samus' Dark Suit and Fusion suit.

*counts on fingers*  I think you forgot one.  Or do you count the Hazard Shield as an add-on not a suit?
Also, I like the PED Suit.

Yes, since the Hazard Shield consists only in a very slight change of the overall design of the PED suit, I didn't consider it to be a proper suit. It's actually not called a suit : it's only a shield. :)

Fair enough.  I like the idea of all the suits being different besides color.

So did you like Other M?
Arrarra Featured By Owner May 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
As a matter of fact, I didn't. Gameplay was refreshing but repetitive and, in some occasion, pretty unresponsive. But the biggest bummer was the story (How did they screw up so much what was basically a Metroid Fusion rip-off ?) and the characters (which got a lot of development, but in the wrong direction).
So no, didn't like it so much. But at least it was kinda fun to play, the first time. Also, no Metroid news since, which is worrying.

I actually did like Other M. It was relentlessly hard, but the story and character development made it very much worth it. Don't really see how they could be "developed in the wrong direction" considering they can do what they want with their characters.

By "in the wrong direction", I meant "in the opposite direction than the one they had been following for years".
Sure, anyone in charge of character development can do anything they want, but if the characters suddenly start behaving in a totally different way than before, then it's not okay, it's just incoherent. In every Metroid games thus far, Samus Aran has been a very though character, never showing her emotions, never speaking unless she really has to. She was cold as ice and virtually unmovable, except in very rare occasion. Those occasions when she showed a glimpse of emotion, were always very powerfull, because they were so rare.
Now scratch every last bit of this character description : in Other M, Samus talks constantly, is found helpless in many occasion, going as far as having a mental breakdown in front of Ridley (whom she met and defeated before). She's overly emotionnal and she lost most if not all of her independance. See what I mean ? The team behind Other M had every right to take Samus' character in any direction they wanted. But the one they chosed was incoherent with what had been done before, and made Samus a very blend and generic character. Them being allowed to do it doesn't mean we have to like this new characters.
