Pauly, the player who first appeared in the Super Metroid OT (courtesy of mullet2000), then became notorious thanks to Wario64's "y cant metroid crawl" thread, has conquered his confusion and finally beaten Super Metroid on the Wii U VC.

Pauly, we salute you, and to celebrate here's your SM story in Miiverse snapshots...

I doubt someone as inept at the game as him could beat the game in 8 hours. So it's probably a joke character.
But how would I know. Never got past the first 30 minutes myself because I get always bored.

If you had a sense of humor you WOULD respond like that after getting that much attention for such a mistake.

If it was for real then this shows Miiverse really CAN help people get through a game they would've otherwise stayed stuck in. If he's just messing with us (given that complete time he really must've been a newbie at the least) then at least it was an entertaining show.

8 hours is really long for Super Metroid, you get the "worst" ending if you take over 5 as I recall (though that's just fully suited Samus in the ending versus bikini suit/visor off, so it's not a big deal.)

Bingo. If he was taking the mick - and his other posts on other communities suggest he might not have been - then it was funny, and if it was genuine it was funny *and* sweet that he made it through in the end.

Yeah I think it is him joking along with it :) . Assuming that it is genuine, it is really good to see Miiverse assisting people enjoy games that they might otherwise have given up on.

It's pretty awesome for the right reasons too. I was playing Kirby's Dreamland 3 on VC. I decided to check out the Miiverse, and got lost in the community for a couple hours.

I had a reply volley with another player and then looked at all the cool drawings. And some people made some funny game-specific jokes.

I'm looking forward to if it's integrated even more into a game like Pikmin.

It's hard to resist, the game does give a few opportunities to be goofy and play dumb.

Though I had one instance where I did something by accident and legitimately was surprised.

GC? Nope! Can't imagine wanting to play with a GC controller anyway, if you were hoping for that just give up.

Wii? Yeah, full price. Classic Controller is preferred.

It was my first VC game and I tried playing it with the GC controller.

A few days later I bought a Classic Controller.

Even Sim City wasn't really pleasant with the GC pad, and that's a game that doesn't depend on reflexes or anything!

I guess the FF games would've been fine, but it really highlights that the GC controller's only good if a game's designed around it, or with it in mind anyway.

I was wondering about the Super Saiyan bit more, but then I remembered Dragon Ball Kai IS running.

And man, I don't think I'd underestimate how young you can get into Star Wars. Most of us probably saw that in re-runs or whatever when we were toddlers if we were born after the movies. Makes me kinda wish we had a reaction for when he rose from the ground though.
