Metroid Prime Trilogy: advice needed
by, 3rd June 2009 at 01:19 AM (883 Views)
I am buying the Metroid Prime Trilogy on Wii. Yes, I've played and pretty much gotten 100% on all three games already (I need a few more friend credits on MP3; I'm bad at making friends, so it'll probably be a while yet). But this is a pretty good deal, three games for $50, especially when MP3 is fetching nearly that much even two years after its release. Still it is $50 for three games I have already. Yes, I'll get advanced control and achievements (both of which make me a happy Martonimos), but is that worth that much money, especially since I know Tallon IV, Aether, and a good chunk of MP3's levels by heart?
There is one way to reduce the cost: trade in the old ones. Now, that I'm less sure about. I should make the decision quickly, because the asking price is bound to fall once the trilogy is released. I could probably walk into GameStop and get a good chunk for them, but come August (BTW, the Trilogy is coming out THREE DAYS after my birthday; that makes me a sad Martonimos), it might not be so much.
The reason I'm considering this, as opposed to going out and doing it, is that I'm kind of attached to those games. I'm wondering if the Trilogy will allow you to access your old files. Probably not for the GameCube versions, but maybe for MP3. If not, that means I'll have to go through and get all those credits again--not to mention send the vouchers off to people AGAIN. And it'd probably have to be other people with the Trilogy, not just any MP3 file. Saving all those GF demolition squad dudes was hard enough the first time (and I did it on easy); I don't want to have to go through that again.
Other than that, I am looking forward to the achievements. And it looks like the GC versions offer nothing that the Wii one won't, except possibly for cutscene quality (something about compression? I'm just going by what IGN said). And I know that by playing through the games again, I'll unlock everything I had unlocked before (except probably the old Metroid in Prime, which I can already play through MZM). So it's not a big deal. It's just... I don't know. What do you guys think? Should I sell my old Prime Trilogy games in favor of the new collection, or what?
Actually, now that I think of it, my copy of MP1 came with the pre-Echoes bonus disc. There's probably not a whole lot on that I want to keep, but it is another way to show my love for the series. So what do I do?
