After Galaxy Reactor came out pretty good, I felt compelled to make another stage, and being the Metroid fanboy that I am, this idea hit me while I was actually working on something else. Long story short, I found that Norfair has a surprising amount of bones and is very customizable, making it a prime target for some epic h4x0rz.
So charge up that Ice Beam, because there’s Metroids-a-plenty in Norfair Depths!
This replaces Green Hill zone, for a number of reasons I won’t bother going into, considering it’s 1:30 right now.
The DL also includes 12 BRSTMs for your listening pleasure, listed as follows:
U01 – Upper Norfair (Super Metroid)
U04 – Lower Norfair (Super Metroid)
U02 – Magmoor Caverns (Metroid Prime)
U03 – Fiery Airdock (Metroid Prime 3)
U06 – SM Boss (Super Metroid)
U07 – Vs Ridley (Brawl)
U08 – Vs Meta Ridley (Brawl)
U09 – Emperor Gorea (Mix by Hauntershadow)
U10 – Mech Amorbis (Mix by Hauntershadow)
U11 – Mad Matter (Mix by Hauntershadow)
U12 – Revenge of the Dark (Mix by Hauntershadow)
U13 – Final Showdown (Mix by Hauntershadow)
The volume on some is a little bit too low, but you can fix that by shifting the music/SFX balance in-game.
Before I wrap this up, there’s something I would like to share with you that, all things considered, gave me a pretty good chuckle. It’s technically not hack-related, so you can skip this part if you want. It’s really just an example of how ignorance can lead to humour.
Basically, someone on YouTube made a video of Dark Link and posted it as a video response to my original Dark Link video. After watching it, I noticed the tags included several different names, but none of them were mine, and he planned to put up a download link. So I stated that I think my name should be added to the tags and the DL should be the original one from my post here. Sounds reasonable, right?
Apparently not, considering his exact statement was: “You can’t make me do it, its my own video. And you have no proof its “your” Dark Link.”
That really just made me laugh. And it keeps going, too. After I brought plenty of proof, he completely dismissed it and insulted me. And yet more lulz are had. A perfect example of “ignorance is bliss”.
The above issue has since been resolved.
So, feedback on the stage would be appreciated.
