So I'm pretty far into Metroid Prime 3 and I got to the part where you drill the wall on both sides. One side gives you a missile expansion, the other takes you to a mine shaft. You have to turn into a ball and do your turbo spin to get the elevator to drop down.
Well, I had played this part once, so after doing one turbo spin, the elevator partially dropped and I suddenly thought I should save the game before going down there - I died last time. So I saved it and came back. Only, now I couldn't drop the elevator. I did the other turbo spin and nothing. I tried leaving, reloading, everything. The elevator is just stuck. I scan the two slots where I'm supposed to turbo spin and it says they've both been used.
Do I need to start the game over? This is insane. I can't go down the lift.
