|Magmoor/Tallon/Chozo after Grapple Beam|
I think I know where I wanna go next... Geothermal Core, there's a high up white door I can now get to with the grapple beam.
Wow, now I have almost every ability... except the X-Ray Visor, and the last beam and suit upgrades.
I guess there's nothing stopping me now from doing the rest of Phazon Mines... however I think I'd rather go do some artifact hunting first. There doesn't seem to be anything left to do in Magmoor, but there is some stuff in Phendrana to do with the Plasma Beam now, as well as at least one thing in Chozo Ruins to check out... and then there's 2 paths in Tallon Overworld to check out... which is perfect because one of those is right near the first Phazon Mines entrance.
First I'll go up the Tallon elevator that leads to the bottom of Root Cave. There's a path at the top of Root Cave I can access now.
Oh wait, I can't yet without the X-Ray visor I guess.
Went to return a couple more artifacts to the temple... but didn't get any new hints.
The power of our temple has been enough to halt the spread of the poison on Tallon IV, but that which remains thrives and grows more concentrated, gnawing on itself in the dark passages beneath the planet's surface. Whether it can ever be truly destroyed is not for our eyes to see. But there is something else. We Chozo are drifting, tumbling through space and time as the Great Poison eats away at our sanity. We wake in dreams. As the veil of lunacy descends, as past and future blend and shuffle, one image appears and flickers through the landscape, wraithlike. It is the Hatchling, the Newborn, walking the path of corruption, a lone figure shining in the toxic shadows. She comes dressed for war, and her wrath is terrible. Do our eyes look backward, seeing the Hatchling as she once was? Or does she approach even now, arriving in our race's last hour, a savior clothed in machines crafted long ago by Chozo hands? Poisonous clouds drift across our vision.
Now we're finally at the part of the game where there are hidden things that don't show up on the scan visor.
Well... now I feel like I can pretty much go anywhere and collect everything else there is to get before returning to finish Phazon Mines.
Deposited 2 more artifacts... now I have all the artifact hints. I think I know where all of them are. One more of them seems to actually be in Phazon Mines.
Stopping here for now. I think next time I play, I can probably go and clean up the rest of the artifacts and other items I'm missing, then finish Phazon Mines and end the game at as close to 100% completion as I can get without a guide.
Here's where I'm at now, at the end of this 4th session:
69% items aquired
92% log book completion
4 power bombs
12 energy tanks
1 more beam cannon upgrade
1 more suit upgrade
and probably 1 more beam combo (the plasma one)
