Nintendo's Metroid series of video games is known for many things, but one of the best traditions of the series is for heroine Samus Aran to acquire a major kick-ass weapon near the close of the game. Right before the final showdown with the game's last boss Samus usually picks up a weapon of amazing destructive power: the Hyper Beam, the Phazon Beam, and so forth. If only there were a way to uncover those weapons early in the game. Kraid's not just a menace when two shots from the Hyper Beam can take him down, right? Or how about firing a weapon in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes that wipes out every enemy on the screen, blasts away all destructible rock faces in the area, and opens every door and portal with a single blast? Cheat devices such as the Game Genie and the Action Replay make it all possible. PTB reader BGNG shows us the ramifications of wielding massive destructive power early in the Metroid games in this exclusive video, Metroid: Ultimate Weapons.
