Metroid : 25 years of epicness by LaRoseNoire1989 Metroid : 25 years of epicness by LaRoseNoire1989
What the f*?

I simply tried to update my picture and Deviantart deleted it?

Oh well...

Anyway, I managed to copy the previous comment, here is it for this edit:

Seriously? Link get a world tour symphony and an epic fanart by an asian dude, Mario get a ton of games and remakes, and Samus doesn't get anything? Shame on you nintendo.

No, I mean it. Over the past years if there is one saga that deserved a tribute, it's the Metroid Saga. The Prime trilogy was amazing. Fusion was great. Zero mission allowed us to reddiscover the first game. Even Other M wasn't "that bad".

And on the other hand what do we have? A bunch of Zelda games who just can't be as great as OoT/MM/WW, (and don't talk to me about that Skyward Sword shit) and a ton load of Mario games which are pretty much ALL THE SAMES.

The Metroid saga DESERVES a tribute. And making a fan art as cool as I could was the least I could do.

I put a lot of efforts into it and hope you'll like it ^^

Let things be clear: it's obvious that i was inspired by the famous 25 years Zelda art, but I also know that the artist was far better than I, and I don't intend to prove it wrong. All I wanted to do here was expressing the greatness of an epic game that is far too much underestimated.

I have some regrets about that art though...
First I'm a bit late. It's been almost a year since the Metroid saga turned 25.
Then I just couldn't figure how to put some extra figures in it... I miss Flaaghra, Tardhus, The Metroid Queen, Phantoon... I whish I could have put them, but I'm not very good with composing =/

I'll try to think about it in the next fews days and if I find something that I'm glad with, I'll edit it. Any idea is welcomed ;)

Anyway, Happy Late Birthday Samus! Hope to see you back on 3DS or Wii / Wii U as soon as possible!

Hope you guys like it!

Sérieusement ? Link a droit à une tournée mondiale symphonique et un fanart sublime fait par un asiat ; Mario a droit a une tonne de jeux et remakes, et Samus n'a rien ? Honte sur vous, Nintendo.

Non, je suis sérieux. Ces dernières années, si il y a bien une saga qui a mérité un hommage, c'est la saga Metroid. La trilogie Prime était incroyable. Fusion était génial. Zero Mission nous a permis de redécouvrir le premier jeu. Même Other M n'était « pas mauvais ».

Et en face, qu'avons nous ? Un tas de jeux Zeldas qui n'arrivent pas à égaler OoT/MM/WW (et ne me parlez pas de cette daube de Skyward Sword), et une tonne de jeux Mario qui sont, à peu de choses près, TOUS LES MEMES.

La saga Metroid MERITE un hommage. Et faire le fanart le plus cool qu'il m'était possible de faire était le moins que je puisse faire.

J'y ai mis beaucoup d'efforts et j'espère que vous l'aimerez. ^^

Que les choses soient claires : Il est évident que je me suis inspiré de la célèbre frise des 25 ans de Zelda, mais je sais aussi que cet artiste était bien meilleur que moi, et je n'essaie pas de prouver le contraire. Tout ce que j'ai voulu faire était exprimer la grandeur d'une série grandiose bien trop sous évaluée.

J'ai quelques regrets sur cet art cependant...
D'abord je suis un peu en retard. Ca fait presque un an que la saga a fêté ses 25 ans.
Ensuite je n'ai juste pas trouvé comment ajouté d'autres personnages. Je regrette Flaaghra, Tardhus, La Reine Metroide, Phantoon... J'aurais aimé pouvoir les ajouter mais je ne suis pas très bon en composition =/

J'essaierai d'y penser ces prochains jours, et si je trouve quelque chose qui me satisfasse, je l'éditerai. Toute idée est la bienvenue;)

Quoi qu'il en soit, Joyeux Anniversaire en retard, Samus ! J'espère te retrouver le plus tôt possible sur 3DS, Wii ou WII U !

J'espère que vous l'aimerez !

Holy Elysian Steamlord! This is one of the most amazing Metroid fanarts I have ever gazed my eyes upon, and I have seen alot! (Metroid is my absolute favorite video game series after all).

And I agree with everything you say in the description, it angers me that Nintendo has stopped caring for Metroid after Other M. The only thing that was crappy in that game was the story and narrative, the rest was solid. (Though maybe the enviorments could have been more creative as well). But as it seemed like so many didn't like it, Nintendo has apparently not given Metroid anything lately. Which is sad to say, but thinking about it it's better to get good/great games every few years than to get lazy or unoriginal games thrown at us way too often, like Nintendo seems to have been doing with for example Mario. 

I don't know, I just want Nintendo to give the franchise a bit more attention. It deserves it the most out of all their franchises they have IMO. 

Anyways, as I said the artwork is great! And I think of myself as a true Metroid fan when I can say that I know the names of everything in this piece! The only thing I'm unsure of is the piece of machinery behind Ghor, but my gut tells me it's an Aurora Unit.

Although I'm a LoZ fan, I also find Metroid to have a vast and intriguing universe. It should be explored more.

Why does everybody dislike other m?
LaRoseNoire1989 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013
The game was pretty decent "for a game". But compared to the Metroid Prime Saga, for example, it was empty, easy, quick to finish and didn't have the quart of its depth. And even compared to old school 2D metroid games, it didn't manage to keep the "isolated/lost" feeling of not having a fiable map to play.

And Samus' character is not coherent with the rest of the saga.

She could have been paralysed with fear by Ridley if she didn't killed him 10 times already. And we know that other m takes place very late in the timeline so it doesn't make sense.

I, for one, was disapointed by those things. But the game still had some good ideas.
