^ That was tough. I remember you had to bomb in ball form under the thing in the canyon or whatever. Racing from one end to the other. Got him though. I think I played the game again and failed and gave up. I do want to play Echoes though and thankfully Cube still works so perhaps one day...

If I pulled my game out and tried it again, I'm sure the progress is still there just waiting to infuriate me all over again. What a bummer.

Did they ever remaster those Metroid games in HD? I really liked those. I wonder if the pace would feel quaint compared to gaming now.
When I see this thread, two games immediately come to mind. Ninja Gaiden which I mentioned when the thread was fresh and Metroid Prime which I too, never finished. Also like you I went for 100% so I want to say I was in the mid-90s on completion percent too. That boss was a nightmare. I had to live with "it was about the journey, not the destination" for years. Nothing wrong with that but it's not satisfying in the least. I enjoyed every second that I put into that game (save for the boss).

Fast forward to the Wii re-release. I decided to run through it again as it truly is a classic. This time I wasn't concerned with percentages, just having fun. Lo and behold I get to the final boss again... and proceed to whoop its ass within a try or two. Did I magically get better? Of course not. The difference was all about the controls. Motion controls allowed for more precise and faster aiming. Motion controls FTW...literally.

The Guardian Ape in Sekiro is currently pissing me off.

Not what I want to hear, haha. The Ape is STILL kicking my ass over and over. Even with the Mortal Blade.
