|Continuing where I left off last year, when I managed to finish the game in under 7 hours with 79% completion on my own with no help... now I'm gonna go back to this game and get all the items I miss and get a 100% clear.|
I already know that the post-game backtracking through everything to do 100% item cleanup is really boring, so instead I'm just gonna go straight to using a guide to collect everything I missed.
Brinstar... seems like I got everything on the left side of the map, but I'm missing a few things on the right side.
There's this one in the pipe, I would've needed to come back here with space jump to get to.
Oh yeah... and that middle Brinstar elevator was where the old Mother Brain lair from Metroid 1 is. The couple of items I was missing in that abridged version of Tourian were easy to find, I just never explored here with the X-Ray visor before.
This upper path right next to it... you need both good wall-jumping or space-jumping skills AND the screw attack. I can see why I never got up here yet.
Not sure why I never found that one Super Missile in Wrecked Ship...
Maridia... of course you'd think I'd be missing a lot of stuff in this huge clusterfuck of a map. But... mostly I was only missing a few things where you need to sink down through the quicksand. after getting the gravity suit and bomb jump... I found the last Reserve Tank here.
This one missile pack I was missing in Norfair, in the Ridley's Lair exit path, should've been easy to find, since there's no other purpose of that dead-end upward path with all the fast bouncy ball enemies.
aaand... it turns out because of that, I wasn't quite done in Brinstar or Maridia yet after all.
A few more hidden missile packs in Norfair that I missed, because they aren't marked by a dot:
