|Area 3 part 2|
Now I have 5 of the 10 Metroids in Area 4... I'm pretty sure I've explored everywhere I can go now in this first lower section of Area 3... Now to finally go back up to where I was and take that 2nd elevator down.
My Area 3 completion % after thoroughly exploring everywhere is 47.6%.
Area 4 Introduction
At this point in the game, the normal enemies are becoming quite a nuisance. I don't even know how to kill those grey rock enemies at all, and a bunch of them can only be killed efficiently when using Lightning Armor or Beam Burst, which means I actually care about watching my Aeion supply now, in addition to my health. Missiles have never been a problem though. I always get plenty of missile drops and I never come close to running out of them now that I'm at like 94 capacity.
Also, did I mention how HUGE this game is? I'm playing very thoroughly, trying to find all the metroids and items that I can without using Scan Pulse or backtracking to previous areas, and so far my file is only at 21.3% completion, after 6 and a half hours. This game is longer than any other Metroid by a large margin. After I beat this, I think it'll be a while before I come back to it and attempt Hard Mode and the speedrun endings.
