If I'm not mistaken, in the canon Samus can form the suit around her with her mind. In that case it's not necessary to make the suit industrial-looking (or the arm cannon that big) or have the paint stripes mentioned above, since Samus doesn't have to go buy parts to weld in place to upgrade anything. Also those glow plugs (bolts?) look bad, I get the blizzard look but I would change those and make them not come out of the suit like that. Something that wouldn't be necessary for someone that can form the suit around them.

NVIDIA VXAO: Voxel Accelerated Ambient Occlusion is simply the highest quality ambient occlusion available in PC games today. VXAO’s world-space algorithm offers superior images, smoother response to camera movement, finer details and better accuracy than screen-space solutions.

VXAO will run on DX11-capable GPUs, but is not intended to replace screen-space implementations for mid-range or budget platforms. For most games in development today, a gamer would want to see VXAO as a high-end option for those who have invested in the latest GPUs, while NVIDIA HBAO+ remains an excellent ambient occlusion solution for less luxurious systems.
