friendlyHunter Posted June 19, 2007 Report Share Posted June 19, 2007 So far the "about a month" theory sounds the most plausable to me. No food rations for 3 months? They REALLY don't like it when you don't follow the rules. Either that or they don't eat much at all... I mean, look how thin their waists are! http://www.conceptart.org/artist/andrew-jones/images/MP2_BONUS/space_pirate.jpg Since Metroid Prime took place RIGHT after the original Metroid in the timeline (The frigate at the beginning of the game was a Noah’s Ark from Zebes). Cool, I didn't actually know that. If that is indeed the case: modifications to change Ridley into Meta Ridley took a full cycle Meta Ridley appears in the frigate in Metroid Prime, no? So, that COULD be a month, or possibly a year between the two games. Both sound reasonable. But, if the frigate is from Zebes, why does it have Phazon on it? I guess either they stopped off a Talon first, or transported the Phazon'd Parisite Queen from Talon to the frigate using another craft. Quick, someone find out how many cycles they were using Phazon on the frigate for before it crashed! My theory: Retro probably didn't really think about cycles that much - either that, or the amount of time is variable (or planet-dependant) like what's his name said. The stuff Samus's visor reads is translated from a multitude of languages: perhaps it translates several different measurements of time into the word "cycle"? I thought the suit's interface (stuff Samus sees on the visor) was in English - made by the Galactic Federation and probably not the Chozo. You can't say that humans don't have the ability to add stuff to Samus' suit - happens a dozen times in Metroid Fusion. Even the Pirate-made visor is compatible with the suit. Hell, here's some more things you can add to the list of stuff compatible with Samus's suit: random globs of organic matter, giant exploding metroid, DNA, a big fat guy falling on you, a puddle of Phazon, the essense of an entire planet, magic floating ammunition that comes from random animals - the list goes on! Regardless of whether any of this makes sense or is relevant, this topic is more time-wastingly delightful than Zelda timeline theories. Oh wait - the whole "Noah's Ark" thing doesn't make a whole lot of sense, if you remember the whole deal with Ridley's Pink Mothership of Doom from Zero Mission. Ah, I'm thinking too hard, bye =\ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
