One of the more obvious "DYKG" features, but nice to see it all there.

Yeah this one has something I think is common knowledge among anyone who knows about Metroid, so nothing new here.

Definitely knew this, and it's basically common knowledge by now.

I didn't know any of the things regarding Aliens, except for the name Ridley Scott.

Funny, I was just telling my casual gaming co-worker about this today.

Also Metroid Fusion and Alien Resurrection (both the fourth) involve the protagonist fused with the titular alien species. Speaking of which, both series are named after the alien species, singular.

Doesn't explain why the third Alien movie sucked and the third Metroid game rocked, though.

Is it sad that I have played a lot of Metroid games from start to finish and I never knew this? This as fascinating!
