Title: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on July 19, 2008, 02:32:28 pm
I just came up with this idea yesterday, so I don't have much for details yet.

The story goes like this: Samus lands on a once Chozo-controlled planet and is involved in a strange accident that causes time throughout the universe to fluctuate. She encounters various creatures and people from her past, including Adam Malkovitch, her Chozo caretaker-people, Mother Brain, the Metroid Larva, Ridley, her parents, the SA-X, Dark Samus/Metroid Prime, the Ing, Gorea, and many more, as well as a few things that might be in future Metroid games. Maybe things from way in the future (assuming Samus finds someone to settle down with), such as her children or grandchildren.

Again, I don't have much thought up and nothing is cement. Any thoughts?

It's an interesting idea. Perhaps events that happened across the Metroid series could be taking place at the same time now and all manner of complications could occur.

Just imagine - Dark Samus vs. SA-X, the Omega Metroid raids a Space Pirate Colony, Metroid Prime vs. the Gorea.....

By the way, this would be placed after Fusion, so should Samus have her original suit, or the new, Fusion version?



Just a random thought here, but isn't Samus part of 3 species now, at least according to her DNA? She was born human, got infused with Chozo DNA, and I think that the vaccine from Fusion made her part Metroid, since she can actually absorb the X, not just kill them.

The suit could be a combination of suits. Perhaps when time gets mixed up, so does Samus' suit. And yes, Samus is a mixture of three species now, and the first in a breed of superhumans.

That would be a really weird looking suit.

Samus the superhuman, hmm? No wonder she's always saving the galaxy....

You've got to admit it's true though.

Perhaps you could have to fight Dark Samus AND Metroid Prime at the same time.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox

That's not even fair. You'd be obliterated in seconds! Unless, of course, the SA-X got to fight with you.


By the way, would this be 2-D or 3-D? Personally, I think it should be made for both DS and Wii. That way, it can be 2D for DS and 3D for Wii.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox

It could be both. The gameplay could be 2D at certain points and 3D at others. So you have 2D rooms and 3D Rooms.

Oh, and the Dark Samus and Metroid Prime fight has one of the other hunters battling alongside you. The other hunter is CPU controlled, though you can also do this battle in Co-op. I'm thinking maybe having a drop-in drop-out co-op mode. Of course, Samus will always be Player 1 but Player 2 will differ depending on the scenario.

If Samus somehow managed to reach an agreement with the SA-X (maybe it's more intelligent than we thought... :o) player 2 could almost always be Samus, albeit slightly different than player 1.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox

True.

Or maybe Samus could find her long lost sibling who somehow has got hold of a powersuit and player 2 takes control of them. But the SA-X is probably a better idea.

 :o a long lost sibling....? Sounds like one hell of an idea for a future situation! You know, it could probably be her daughter too.....


Maybe P2 just has a different persona in different areas.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 14, 2008, 09:35:09 am
Perhaps so. That would mean all scenarios would have to be adapted for two players though.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on August 14, 2008, 09:35:31 pm
True. Which could lead to a second, slightly different storyline for **** gamers where you're by yourself.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 15, 2008, 05:28:30 am
Well, if it's called Time Paradox then that would fit in well, since there could be two completely different scenarios that run parallel to each other.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on August 15, 2008, 08:18:57 am
I never thought of that.....

Which could possibly lead to a battle between Samuses. With an extra character thrown in there somewhere.




You know, it'd be kind of nice if someone else put something up here. We're the only ones to say anything so far.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 16, 2008, 03:15:35 am
I know. No one else seems to be interested.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Leonri on August 19, 2008, 04:23:31 pm
Well no offence but I'm not really liking this idea. I'd rather a completely new game than a mangled, rehashed version of all the others.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox

...............


I think you missed the part where I said sections from future games.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Link on August 19, 2008, 10:37:13 pm
Going with the theme of time, I think it would be more interesting if Samus had a "Time Suit". Since you can't really go back in time it would just speed up the flow of things and advance her to the future.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 20, 2008, 03:12:04 am
Interesting idea. Perhaps both players could have a Time Suit.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: NXtreme on August 20, 2008, 01:27:35 pm
Perhaps a time paradox could lead to samus meeting herself and player two could play as her sometimes


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 21, 2008, 02:37:06 am
Well I suppose that could happen too.

This would be one of the biggest Metroid games ever.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on August 21, 2008, 08:54:23 pm
And would probably set a precedent for Nintendo to base games off of. Then, if they didn't like something they put in there, they could dismiss it as a "potential" future, since the future has different outcomes depending on decisions people make.

I also like the idea of a Time Suit. Which could possibly lead to something similar to the dagger they have in Prince of Persia. If only in the slowing down or temporary reversing of time aspect.

And part of the game might be finding powerful materials to power her Time Suit and advance her to the future.



And I'd like to apologize to Leonri. I was a bit of a jerk in that last post.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 22, 2008, 04:02:57 am
Hey, I suppoe we need to think about the sort of levels that the game would have.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on August 24, 2008, 02:00:53 pm
Yeah. probably a short section with Hunters, using the Time Suit in conjunction with an Octolith to time-jump. Several sections from Prime, again, using Phazon to time-jump.

Maybe several levels where something weird happens from one of the older games and you have to correct it to prevent a paradox. Like, the moon Rundas originally came from is decimated in a
Space Pirate attack a year or two before he was born and you have to stop the Pirates before they can do it.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 25, 2008, 03:49:59 am
That's a good one. Perhaps Time Paradoxes have affected Planet Orbits and some are stuck together. So you could have Temple Grounds and Tallon Overworld mixed into one level.


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: Ratiqu on August 28, 2008, 06:42:16 pm
Whoa....I can't even imagine.....

Maybe a Leviathan Seed on SR388?


Title: Re: Metroid: Time Paradox
Post by: TheAPERSON on August 29, 2008, 03:04:42 am
I did a short story for English coursework once and that involved a spaceship travelling towards a planet which is orbiting away from it, so that's where I got my idea of the way planets orbit.

And how about the Frigate Orpheon could crash land on a different planet. Perhaps Zebes. Then the Space Pirate Mothership from Metroid Zero Mission ends up on Tallon IV, so the Wrecked Ship ends up somewhere else.
