First, has anybody tried the 8bitdo SFC30? It doesn't seem to detect it natively via directinput, but supports Xinput controllers just fine and has corresponding buttons.
Second, with all the various control options, I'm having trouble deciding what I want to go with. Right now I'm going with Fusion/Zero Mission style R to missile, but I might change it to Super Metroid L to aim up/R to aim down and A (SNES layout) to toggle missiles.
Gameplay is tight with great customization options and plays excellently using an XBox 360 controller, using D-Pad for movement is a must since the control stick movement is too twitchy. The only adjustments I made so far is swapping Aim Up and Aim Down to LT and LB respectively, it weirded me out to have them flipped
I think Mac players are playing this game via Bootcamp?
Also, damn I need to find a way to deal with these alpha metroids better. This one was giving me the what for and I couldn't jump away from it. All part of the experience I suppose. This would be a great time to order a pizza and just loaf around the rest of the day playing this masterpiece. Thank you, guy, who made this.
Excited to see all the positive impressions; just about to download this now. It's going to be great to finally enjoy Metroid 2, even when I was a kid playing it on my neighbours' GameBoy I always found the game a bit too unwieldy thanks to everything being so big, no colour and a lack of a map.
It was the first Metroid I ever played but it never clicked with me the same way the majority of the later games would.
