Metroid

Metroid (メトロイド, Metoroido) is a series of science fiction action-adventure video games by Nintendo. It chronicles the missions of space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran who protects the galaxy from the depredations of the Space Pirates and their attempts to harness the power of the eponymous Metroids. Metroid combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration aspect of The Legend of Zelda with a decidedly darker atmosphere and a greater emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.As of 2011, the Metroid series consists of eleven games, with releases on every Nintendo home and portable console except the Game & Watch, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, 3DS, and Wii U.

  • It's Not Quite Super Metroid, But It'll Do

    … 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.

What really distinguishes this game is its storytelling — Super Metroid is cinematic in its approach, using a combination of textual, audio, and visual cues to tell its story. And the game's opening…

    …Dark Samus Amiibo ⊟ Here’s another custom Samus, just as badass as the Light Suit one we posted a few weeks ago. This one was painted by Fae, who even took a shot of Dark Samus back in her box — this would be a pretty expensive factory defect, considering the double Arm Cannon Amiibo went for $2,500 on eBay.
