|Classic Diva Name: Samus Aran
Game Boy Games she is in: Metroid 2: Return of Samus, Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid 4: Fusion.
Nintendo DS Games she is in: Metroid Prime Hunters
Well, we tried to sit down with her for an interview; but she was busy doing something with a friend, or something. She just told us that she was "Going to raise Atlantis"*. Whatever that means. But she did answer the "Seven" questions. :)
DMG Ice: We all love you. When are you returning?
Samus: Sooner than you think.. but longer than you wish. +
DMG Ice: What's your favorite food?
Samus: Gee... I'm kinda a normal girl. I like a good junk food binge on occassion. Thanks to my Chozo blood -you remember the comic chronicles, right?-, I have an obscenely high metabolism. So, I burn calories VERY fast. Right now.. I've developed an addiction to "Mars" bars. Don't ask.
DMG Ice: We loved you in Super Smash Bros. I have all three of your games. I worship the ground you walk on. Anyways.. when trying to find neat-o pics.. I couldn't find many pics of you without your suit. Why is this?
Samus: The selling point of my games was never about: "Hey, it has a hot chick in it." The selling points were: "fast action, hard gameplay, lots of exploration." The first one mixed hard gameplay with lots of exploration. The second was mostly lots of exploration, but near the finish, it provided hard gameplay and fast action. Remember Omega Metroids? Those things are tough. The third was a little lighter on the exploration part.. and it wasn't that hard. But it offered small servings of those elements, garnished with a HUGE helping of fast action. The game was all action. It had huge enemies in it, and loads of amazing sequences. It was never a "jump, jump, jump" fare; but it was really fun. Did you figure out how to electrocute the large shrimp-like boss? Wasn't that cool? Yeah, it's all action. A lot of the graphics in Metroid 2 and Metroid 3.. lent themselves to a little.. terror.. in a way? I mean, it wasn't kiddie game imagery, now, was it? The games had T & A... "Terror and Action". The only "bounce" in the game was from deflecting laser shots, or an enemies head hitting the ground.
DMG Ice: Why did your parents name you.. Samus?
Samus: It's actually.. a Chozo name I was given. It means: "Hunting Warrior"**, although some idiots have said it could be "Warrior Princess". I promptly shot them. My enemies think it means: "Psycho Bitch". I shot them too.
DMG Ice: What's your favorite music?
Samus: Well.. I've become a little partial to The Galactic Cowboys. But I like a lot of music. Sometimes.. I catch myself singing along with the radio. Which is a bit sad. Because.. nothing looks worse than a Bounty Hunter walking along, kicking butt, singing to her self: "I'm blue.. da ba de da ba di".
DMG Ice: In a perfect world...
Samus: ...Princess Peach Toadstool would have to rescue Mario and I would collect the bounty on Pikachu's head.
DMG Ice: One more question.. Will you marry me?
Samus: Sorry, I live a crazy life.. and you don't want to see the creatures that follow me home.
* Atlantis was the original code-name for the Game Boy Advance. This "interview" took place before 2001.
+ Boy, that was an understatement.
** Oddly enough, that's apparently what it means in Metroid Prime.
