I've noticed that every time you see a powerful new powerup just sitting out in the open in most Metroid games, it generally means that you're going to be locked in and have to engage in a reasonably challenging battle. And despite the fact that it's obvious that it's a trap. The only thing you can do is walk right into it, because that's the way the game works.
I think you mean "got to be a trap." Left out the "a."
Heh, so true...
Well, I can't argue against his logic really. Since they know it's a trap they know what to expect.
By the way, Ryan... that new avatar is great ^_^
even with game logic notwithstanding, they HAVE to get the power suit there, there is simply no choice but to go for it. What else can they do? If they walk away the world is doomed because they won't have the power to save it, and they'll probably be attacked from behind by SA-X anyway. At least if she grabs the suit they'd have a fighting chance.
I think that it is a fake.
