Norfair part 3 - Ridley's Lair
A Chozo statue lowered the acid for me... then I fought another Chozo statue boss, it seems tougher... it dodges my missiles now.. but it can't stand up to charged plasma shots. Got the screw attack after that easy miniboss... now all of a sudden most of these tougher Norfair 2 enemies are nothing.
reset back to my last save since I went back too far and am now back in Norfair 1... I'm now at 5:49
I went to check out this one area off to the right of Norfair 2 that looks like it goes up and exits back to Norfair 1 or something... then I found that one notorious hidden wall that the Xray visor doesn't see through.
Didn't bother going the rest of the way up that path just yet, because it doesn't look like it leads to Ridley at all... I retraced my steps a bit and found a door that I overlooked (couldn't tell where it was based on the map), that leads to the path to Ridley...
well shit. I got game over twice so far... 2nd try I had a full 10 energy tanks, 150 missiles, and 40 super missiles... still couldn't beat him... he started getting REALLY hard once he became very red and I couldn't dodge his attacks anymore, literally just hits me instantly whenever I come out of space jump... and I actually used all my super missiles and got down to my last few missiles too. I wonder if well aimed charged plasma shots would be better than rapid-fired missiles, especially since with only getting one shot in instead of several, you'd have more time to focus on dodging. I really love this difficulty though and I can tell that the failure is entirely my fault.
