|full high playthrough log part 2|
an ominous scene with Ridley 2 flying by as I went back into Norfair...
- Norfair 2 -
went to the speed boost blocks on the right path of Norfair's blue area, leading to Lower Norfair
a bunch of speedboost required sections here... got the high jump, which also enables morph ball jumping
and also found the next standing chozo statue... this one points to that upper Brinstar section that I can now get to
can't go any further into Lower Norfair yet though, a big bug is blocking the way... at the bottom left path and the middle left path is too hot
got that standing chozo statue at upper right of Brinstar 1 that I saw before but couldn't get to.. this one points to bottom left of Lower Norfair
this one lava pit I saw earlier in upper Brinstar 1, I tried to go there without lava protection but the path was blocked off by some organism wall thing...
in the upper green part of Brinstar, I encounted two more of these organic walls, and they got eaten by those small leech monsters. oh and with the varia suit those leeches don't even hurt Samus now.
wtf, now there's an organic wall on the top way back to the 2nd column, where there wasn't one before... can't get passed it from this side, need to go all the way back around.
oh... now that I know how that works I realize I could've gotten to the other side of that upper right Brinstar 1 chozo statue a lot earlier...
wow this place is so much less confusing in the remake... it's not entirely linear but it's still pretty hard to get lost thanks to the map and the areas not all looking the same...
just have to keep finding the fake dark lava pits... finding a few things in dark lava that I can't do yet though...
found the wave beam in one of the fake lava pits
the wave beam can't go through the bug's hard shell, but it can hurt them from below
the 2nd bug was tricky... I had to move him back by spamming the wave beam, and then time some bombs so that they explode just as he's ontop of them when he charges at me.
there's a really cool flying bug miniboss before Ridley's lair...
