Aaron de Orive was the writer for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.


"I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. Comic books began my life-long fascination with storytelling. Fantasy novels eventually supplemented the four-color adventures of popular superheroes. By the time I was twelve, I had discovered the works of Robert E. Howard, Michael Moorcock, Fritz Leiber, Frank Herbert, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Horror movies rounded out my early education in the fantastical." "Then in the summer of 1977 I saw this odd little science fiction movie called Star Wars. That pretty much decided the path I would follow in my adult life. I became fascinated with the process of bringing these stories to life. I moved to Austin in 1985 to attend the University of Texas. After a false start and a hiatus of several years, I returned to the university and received a B.A. in Liberal Arts (English) and a B.S. in Communications (Radio-TV-Film) in 1996."

Round up the "Usual Suspects"...Edit

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption's story follows bounty hunter Samus Aran as she assists the Galactic Federation in its fight against the Space Pirates. While fending off a Space Pirate assault, Samus and her fellow bounty hunters are attacked by her doppelgänger, Dark Samus, who incapacitates them with a mutagenic material called Phazon. After Samus loses contact with the other hunters, the Federation sends Samus on a mission to determine what happened to them. During the course of the game, Samus works to prevent the Phazon from spreading from planet to planet while being slowly corrupted by the Phazon herself.
