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 Chozo combat a viscous, parasitic life form (the X Parasites) with another viscous, parasitic life form (Metroids)?

For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.
