Seratuhl said:Hmm....I say they're both equally matched. I mean look at it....Fox McCloud lacks the superior strength and technology of Samus and yet he's able to beat her in Super Smash Brothers. So if Fox can do it, so can the Chief...
Seratuhl said:XD Samus defeated most of her enemies through the use of superior alien technology ,Chozo blood transfusions, and some skill. Master chief, on the other hand, was able to defeat hordes of Covenant and Flood with inferior human tech, some stolen alien weapons, and a lot of skill ( he needed it since the human race was using such inferior weapons ). If Samus were to be brought down to chief's level in terms of normal, human enhancement and weaponry then the chief would win.
Spiritmoon said:I think that Master chief would win. All he would have to do is get into melee range and then he could literally tear her suit to peces with his bare hands. Even with active camo this would still be tough, but the Chief is smart and he would find a way to do it. Lol Also, Chief has allies. Lots and lots of little marines to help him out. he could call in reinforcements which could drop in via drop pods and start hammering away at samus's shields untill her suit was depleted and Chief could move in for the Kill. Overall i think the Chief is way more resourceful and badass than people give him credit for. Samus relies on her suit and nothing else, a definate drawback i would say.
When in doubt call in some marines to act as meatshields.
Spiritmoon said:Hell the chief could even call in pelicans for support or maybe even an orbital strike.
Also i must point out that in melee range Samus only has one actual hand to grab with. Sure she could use the gun as a club i suppose but cmon, that would be the first thing the chief would rip off.
themocaw said:Then again, if you want to argue that, they'd both wind up dead against Xenogears, so what's the point?
I guess it's your perogative to feel that way. One could say that the Halo games are nothing more than moving from checkpoint to checkpoint using the same three or four weapons over and over, watch a cutscene, lather rinse repeat.Spiritmoon said:I hate Metroid. Samus Sucks. Master Chief Forever.
Spiritmoon said:hmmm touche. though i must say one last thing. the storyline in Halo is pretty darn good. It may be a "rinse, lather" scenario but the story makes it worth it for me, whereas Metroid does not.
Spiritmoon said:The point i was trying to make with the whole "ripping her suit up" bit was that he would sneak up on her (somehow, im not saying it would be easy) and at the very least tweak something so it doesnt work right before she could react.
Morph Ball: as far as im concerned , smaller and easier to squish, and if i remember correctly you can only lay a limited number of bombs at a time and not in very quick succession(unless they changed it in the most recent game and you can now "Spam" them).
Calling in Pelicans: its a distraction, while shes busy taking them down, the chief is riddling away at her limited and un rechargeable shields, if hes lucky he lands a couple sticky grenades on her
Lastly: Knowing the Meroid games, Samus would probably have lost all of her friggin equipment in the first place, and her ship would be too damaged to even be of any help! Im mean C'mon! if she's so badass then why cant she EVER keep track of it all?! Thats why i stopped playing them, because i knew it would be the same old scenario just with a few new stupid twists.
heres how those games ALWAYS work
1. start game with no equipment and slowly search for and find it through a series of stupid trials and puzzles
2. uncover some weird alien/pirate plot to destroy/takeover/assimilate the planet she happens to be on
3. get your gear back and start pounding away at baddies untill you reach the leader/boss/big baddie guy
4. get some new super uber powerful weapon that is waaay too overpowered and makes everything too easy
5. totally pwn the final baddie and save the planet
6. something happens and the whole cycle starts over in the enivetable sequel
