Artist Eric Ridgeway started a fan project with classic heroes, and how they’d look beyond the Game Over screen, after being defeated.
You may well have played Super Metroid. But when you did, you played it the way Nintendo wanted you to play it.
Metroid: The Sky Calls is an 11-minute, fan-made short film that shows Samus having a very bad day at the office. It is—relative to the scope and budget—very, very good.
But the end result is totally worth it.
I hear Metroid Prime is a pretty good game. Let’s stream it!
Ridley’s waiting for Samus atop the the Chozo Artifact Temple. Canadian LEGO builder Jared Rosenblitt remade Metroid Prime’s semi-final battle with LEGO bricks and man those cracks on the floor sure are detailed.
My annual interviews with Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime are upbeat affairs. He’s always feeling good about the line-up and remains unruffled as I pepper him with as many questions about as many topics as I can squeeze in.
E3 2015’s top head-scratcher so far: Why would Nintendo bring back their dormant Metroid franchise, a series known for fairly quiet, careful solo sci-fi exploration, with a multiplayer shooter that’s also a sports game? Good thing I had a half hour with the game’s producer to find out.
Following a more than five-year drought since the last Metroid game, Nintendo is bringing back their space adventure franchise with what looks to be a multiplayer-centric first-person game that, at least from its debut trailer, doesn’t feature much (or any?) of Samus Aran.
Two teams of three players attempt to shoot a ball through a shrinking goal in Blastball, a 3DS game with a Metroid-vibe making its debut during competition at the 2015 Nintendo World Championships.
Nintendo gamers of a certain age knew the trick: type “Justin Bailey” into the password screen of Nintendo Entertainment System classic Metroid and the game’s hero would change outfits. Fast forward—oh my god, I’m old—twenty-nine years later.
You’re looking at Super Metroid, but you’re also look at Metroid Fusion. Slowly but surely, the two Metroid games are becoming one, thanks to an intrepid modder.
Yes, I gained a new ability! Now where the hell do I use it?
Cosplayer d-slim cares not for your spandex and swords. He cares for fake armour, and mech suits, and they're awesome.
A few weeks ago I explored the most recent entries in the 3D Metroid universe, trying to dissect what I thought made them great.http://tay.kotaku.com/re-re-reviews-...
The world is not short on quality Samus cosplayers, even with all the work that goes into the armour, but a zombie Samus Aran? That's awesome.
The Metroid Prime trilogy, arguably the best gaming trilogy ever, has just been re-issued as a $20 download on the Wii U. That’s a good reason for Kirk “never played a Metroid Prime” Hamilton to try them out. I had to see how that went.
The bad news: we haven't seen a Metroid game in almost five years, and that's not looking to change any time soon. The good news: Xeodrifter, which came out earlier this month for PC and 3DS, is a fine enough substitute. Well, it's an OK substitute. A decent enough substitute. It's margarine, basically. It's I Can't…
It's been a little over two decades since Super Metroid debuted on the Super Nintendo, and it's lost none of its power in the intervening years.
