Good stuff, and it certainly wasn't as useless as the other weapon upgrades (did you ever actually use sunburst?). I agree with you on the story though. The original kept feeding you context as your progressed throughout the game. Echoes just dumps you into artifact-hunts. Lame. The level design was quite excellent throughout though.
Maybe I didn't try the Annihilator on enough enemies, but it seemed like enemies went down with a lot fewer hits from the light/dark beams. The story was compelling at first, too, but pretty much after the first contact with a Chozo-er-Luminoth, it completely disappeared.
Alien Hominid looks intriguing. The Flash game is fun for about 3 minutes at a time.
