Holy cow, it finally finished!?

First Sonic Mania, and now this!  What's next?  Card Sagas Wars?  Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth?  Night of the Meteor?  Super Mario Fusion Revival (or whatever they're calling it now) ?

Ordinarily I wouldn't start playing something like this until the next version, but oh yes, I'm downloading this now before the C&D comes along.

I'd like to see a youtube video or pics. I didn't get far in M2 so I don't think I'll play this. It's good to see it made it to 1.0 tho.

It definitely feels like the zero mission take on metroid 2. Loads of great changes and keeps the spirit of the original to a degree. It misses a bit of the atosphere, but gameplay wise its top notch

It's honestly a brilliant fan remake. Beat this bugger in one sitting. The gameplay is practically flawless and it feels just like Metroid. They did a fantastic job!

Too bad the source was not released along with the executable, the Linux version never even made it out.

About an hour of my save game was logged running it on my Linux laptop under Wine. I had absolutely no issues.

Look https://seafoamgaming.com/2016/08/07/noa-isnt-your-enemy-regarding-the-am2r-takedown/

(I don't know if Nintento are doing that)  :banghead:

UPDATE: Good Lord (AM2R is down).

Major gaming sites giving needless exposure to legally grey fan projects for clicks. Said articles often dwell on the legal aspect, even reaching for the companies "for comment" to cement the point. Fan-translations get some hatred on the virtue of being accurate and not changing stuff unlike localizations and thus "dry" and undeserving existence. Project gets taken down with a C&D. Articles about the C&D drama and more clicks. Even better are the ones where they go "but why take down this when you missed that other fan project too?" Rinse and repeat.

However by now many have caught on to this charade. Super Metroid Fusion's author when he got the unwanted coverage just went in hiding mode for a few months, site closed, project on hold and all... then after a while resumes working on it. Now there's articles about how Nintendo never took down fan projects before, and calling everyone calling them out on harming the project with such exposure.

To deny the project takedown as it's ongoing is a new low, to be honest.

Got the game one minute one and beat on day one. Fantastic remake. Sucks that Nintendo had to give it the axe.

Angered as I have been all night about this, but I hope one day justice will be served.

As someone who runs a gaming site... I know what you mean here. A lot of sites do tend to hype the hell out of an ongoing project and risk it getting shut down and all that.

But that's kind of why I'm kind of cautious when I cover these games. If it's a project that's less than about 50% complete, I likely won't post an article about it. There are exceptions, but in those cases (like if I personally know the game's creator), I'll avoid mentioning it to the likes pf GoNintendo and My Nintendo News as well, and not post it on Reddit either. This stops the mainstream media going nuts over the games.

It's also why for my own works, I pretty much don't seek any attention until they're complete. The odd video (like on fan sites and stuff), sure. But I know that if it gets too heavily advertised, it'll get too much coverage on sites like Kotaku or IGN or what not and cause potential issues down the road.

Perhaps Nintendo is thinking they have a fan-pleasing move up their sleeve after all?

Not ordering a Cease and Desist, but issuing a takedown notice?

Doesn't something seem odd about this to anyone else?

What would be the point of a C&D? The project is already finished.
