Retro Review – Metroid II: Return of Samus (GB)

Metroid II holds up very well as a bite sized Samus adventure. By no means is it a long game. My play through was a little under 5 hours. I would absolutely recommend playing this game. Especially if you are interested in either the remake or Metroid Prime 4 when that is eventually released. Also I feel that this version of Metroid II could be played either before or after the remake as an excelle...

Retro Review – Metroid II: Return of Samus (GB)

First a little background information: Metroid II was my introduction to the Metroid franchise. My first time playing it was way back in the day on the original Game Boy as a kid. My parents gave me a Game Boy because every summer we would go on long road trips from Northern California to Southern California to visit my grandparents. Being in a car for 8 hours a day provides lots of free time for ...

Video: Hunt monsters as Samus Aran in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Capcom uploaded a video to YouTube today, showing off the latest Nintendo crossover equipment for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate: this time it’s Samus from the Metroid series, in both Power and Zero suit varieties. A new ranged weapon resembling an oversize version of Samus’s arm cannon is also shown being used by the bounty hunter turned monster hunter. Nintendo fans should be very excited...

Video: Super Metroid reimagined as a cartoon series

Ever wished that Super Metroid was its own animated series? Well, artist Dave Rapoza has done just that with his latest video depicting Nintendo’s SNES classic as a full-fledged animated series. The short clip runs at just under a minute and a half, but shows Samus gunning through familiar locals on the planet Zebes and encountering an enemy that may or may not lead her to a certain stolen M...

Video: Metroid Lore in a Minute

The fine folks of the YouTube channel Lore in a Minute! have recently compiled a Metroid-specific edition of their humorous video game backstory videos. The video, in rapid-fire succession, details Samus Aran’s origins all the way to the end of the original Metroid, along with some bits you may or may have not known about.  In addition, the video asks the all-important question: Why have the...

Video: Metroid fan film made on a $200 budget

Video game fan films are becoming more and more of a common occurrence through the Internet. Some of these fan-made videos range from serious/pet projects to just a straight unabashed parodies. The common thread between these though is that each were made on a modest budget. Well, that is, a really, really, really modest budget that could be covered by one’s paycheck from a fast food joint. ...

T-shirt of the day: Mount Playmore

Busted Tees recently unveiled a clever Nintendo-themed Mount Rushmore t-shirt for their online catalog that features Mario, Donkey Kong, Samus, and Link immortalized in stone (or in cloth and print to be more exact). The design itself is sure to make many (including myself) ponder, “If there was a Mount Rushmore for video game characters or designers, what four would grace it?” This qu...

A Writer Appears! Michael Enters the Fray!

Then again, couldn’t we all just be friends? Y’know, like Kirby and Ribbon over there? Or you could just give me chocolates, and we’ll call it a day. Mmm…chocolates. Er, let’s start over. Michael Fletcher’s my name, and by the look of things I’m going to be writing here every now and then. Which is pretty sweet, considering I live for games of the video va...

Review: Nintendogs + cats = Strange, lovable and amazing

If you’re looking for a cartridge that includes Samus Cat, classical music, 3D dog poop, birds flying at your face, Elvis hairdos, RC helicopters and an entire house themed around Super Mario Brothers…boy, have I got a game for you! Or, non-game, I should say. Though it contains excellent competition events, Nintendogs + cats—like its predecessor—is not really a game at all. It’s a s...

Nintendo Halloween costume ideas, anyone?

I might be late to the party, but tonight I stumbled across the most impressive fan-made cosplay of Samus’s Varia Suit I’ve ever seen, and with Halloween right around the corner, figured it would be fun to share. Nintendo costumes are now a dime a dozen, but it’s rare to find true quality in the sea of cheap knock-offs. This impressive homage to our favorite bounty hunter took si...
