I found it to be very difficult, but I didn't do much item hunting, and it turns out there are special tricks to kill many bosses with ease.

If difficulty isn't a turnoff, then, yes. It controls so much better than Super Metroid (the SNES one) but does not build ambiance as nicely IMO.

But I'm biased-- I love Metroid, Metroidvanias, and stupid-hard games.

EDIT: I just saw you beat Deltarune Ch2 optional boss on no-hit. In terms of difficulty, I think you'll do fine with Dread :)

I can't believe they managed to meet and surpass these 16 years of simmering hype and expectations. I remember being in 2005 on an Animal Crossing forum talking about Metroid Prime being an X-Parasite and wondering how Dread would make use of the DS screens.

Also, it seems like Chozo is a real con-lang? I can't believe they managed to nail VAing Samus in a way that was satisfying, fitting, and great. The warrior scream at the end sent absolute chills down my spine.

Up until this comic, I thought "squid game" was just some Splatoon 3 spinoff that I was uninformed about

I remember this being a big controversy, with headlines saying "Google is getting rid of porn", and in retrospect it was a great idea.

DDG is great for LaTeX, but god forbid you hit "Images" by accident.

I get the feeling it's establishing a "baseline" to subvert and divert from. It already has in some mostly-subtle but very-meaningful ways IMO.

I don't think the next 5 chapters will be the same "silly adventure in the dark world, seal the fountain!" routine. I'd bet money Chapter 7 won't end like "welp, good job sealing all the fountains!"
