Posted by Chris | Comments Off on Echoes from the Dark – The Atmosphere of Dark Aether
If there is one thing Metroid Prime 2 does well it’s scare the living beejeezus out of you. The story behind Echoes was basic enough, its your traditional good vs evil/light vs dark conflict, but why was if effective? I can’t speak for others, but whenever I had to travel to Aether’s dark side I tried my best to get out of there as soon as possible. I tend to take my time exploring the environments or worlds in Metroid games, but dark Aether was an exception.Read More
Posted by Chris | Comments Off on My first experiences with Metroid – How I got into the series
For a blog this website has very little in the way of actual opinion so maybe it’s about time that changed.
I got into Metroid when I was still pretty young. My brother was old enough to get into gaming and so for Christmas and birthdays his interest was in that area. Meanwhile I was very much still into legos, toy tractors, and digging holes in the yard. Quite a while after he had moved on from the Game Boy to the super Nintendo I got my hands on it. One of the only games he had for the system happened to be Return of Samus and so I spent my fair share of time completely lost in its world.

As a bonus for pre-ordering the game at Gamestop buyers will get not only the tin case and art booklet, but also a t-shirt. On top of that if you order the game over the internet you’ll get an online exclusive poster along with the shirt bringing the total bonuses to four, as if three games wasn’t enough!
For recent fans of the series this is a definite pickup, and for older fans it may well be worth another look throughRead More
Posted by Chris | Comments Off on Official Metroid Prime Trilogy Box Art Revealed
Nintendo recently revealed the official box art for the Metroid Prime Trilogy set for the Nintendo Wii. The collector’s edition comes in a metal tin with a cover sleeve and an art booklet for the Metroid Prime trilogy.
Sure the case is no wasa-bi creation but after the lapse with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption’s box art I personally couldn’t be anymoreRead More
Who doesn’t like Legos? I personally love it. Piecing stuff together is always entertaining, and creating toys on your own is always exiting and is sure to bring to life the small kid hidden inside every one of us (that is, unless you’re still a small kid). And since this is a Metroid blog, it’s logical for a Lego article to pop up eventually. Well, here it is.Read More
