  1. I’ve played Metroid dread good quality. would have liked to see a time elevated escape from the first boss. And for the story says make it to your ship hmm ? That would have been awesome from the get go. 1980s was the best. look forward to seeing more space monsters. Not Egyptian stuff. Other then that a really nice game.

  2. Need some help… I did a normal 100% in 1 file and in 2 others i did normal and hard sub 4 hours… But I only get the rewards for doing on each file how do i get all rewards in a single file?

  3. I did a Normal 100% playthrough in about 13 hours and I have pictures 1 and 7 unlocked. So 7 can’t be unlocked after having unlocked everything else.

    • No, you may be confussing that one with the one you get for 100% item recollection, which is the exact same image with Samus on her Power suit

  4. Wait so are the other 3 shown only available on Normal difficulty? I got sub 4 hours on Hard Mode, but the 1st 3 didn’t unlock.
