Hey, I'm closing in on the finale of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, the first Prime game I've played. It's bad a$$. But I was wondering when she's in the cockpit of her ship, if all the interactive panels serve a purpose? Like, is the top button with the radio frequencies designed for users to input possible codes? And how about the left circular button that appears to arm the ship's weapons on the side and turns everything orange? Or the right circular button that sort of covers the cockpit in a protective shield? And the "thrusters". It's cool as hell to turn those things on but again, I don't know if they actually do anything; they're certainly not needed to fly the ship. If anyone can clarify these questions on whether they serve to help fulfill objectives or not, that'd be greeaat. Oh and her standard combat visor... what does the top-left circular panel display? And what does the top bar (split into 4 mini slots) indicate? I've seen one light up occasionally; I thought it corresponded to how many energy cells I was carrying but I think that isn't the case. Metroid Prime brainiacs!!! I request thy knowledge!!!
