It's too bad you missed out on the Trilogy when it was cheaper, as it's definitely worth a purchase. That said, you won't really be "lost" by playing the story out of order, although Echoes certainly builds up the encounters with Dark Samus leading into Corruption, so the experience as a whole may feel a little lessened without seeing any sort of history on Dark Samus.
