Ranking the Bosses of Metroid Dread

Metroid Dread has to feature one of the coolest portrayals of Samus Aran that fans have ever seen.  I’ve already written a review of the game, but finding myself unable to quit talking about it quite yet, I decided it would be fun to rank all of the game’s bosses that Samus so expertly vanquishes,…

I Didn’t Dread Playing Metroid Dread

While I haven’t exactly played that many Metroid games, pretty much every console release since the original Metroid Prime on the GameCube has been a big deal for me.  This particular game sees Samus investigating planet ZDR, from which the Galactic Federation received evidence that the dangerous X parasite is still in existence.  While I…

Metroid Dread can Already be Played in 4K (on PC)

It hasn’t even been a week since Metroid Dread released for the Switch, and emulation enthusiasts have not only managed to get the game to run on PC, they’re supposedly getting it to run better. I’m not sure if this is an emulation mile stone or anything, but it sure is crazy to think that…

The Latest Metroid Dread Teaser is…Wow!

Okay, so I don’t usually do this, but spoiler warning for those wanting to go into Metroid Dread completely blind. I, of course, don’t know anything more than what’s already been shown by Nintendo, but Nintendo just revealed a lot in the last trailer, so turn back now if you want the full impact of…

Metroid Dread: A Game 19 Years in the Making

As usual, Nintendo had a very strong showing at E3 2021. In fact, I’d argue that theirs was the best out of everyone who presented. Not only did they bring the games, they brought games that we’ll actually get to play relatively soon; no waiting for years and years to get our hands on these!…

The Metroid Prime 4 Wishlist

You know, it’s kind of tough being a Metroid fan. Unlike Nintendo’s other major franchises, Metroid hardly ever gets any attention anymore. I mean, there hasn’t been a proper Metroid game at all since Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS. That was 4 years ago now. There hasn’t been a console Metroid game since Metroid:…

Metroid Prime Trilogy: A Comparison

With Metroid Prime 4 sure to be a reality…someday and a full playthrough of the entire Trilogy now in my recent past, I thought it would be a good time to compare all three games and discuss where each game excels and where each falls short.  Though I’ll admit that the first game is by…

Favorite Nintendo Characters: Link and Samus

As was the case with choosing my favorite Nintendo song, choosing my favorite Nintendo character is also a bit of an overwhelming feat.  With no shortage of wonderful and charming characters at my disposal, I finally decided on two characters in particular that I would call my favorite.  The first one, Link, should come as…

Favorite Nintendo Music: Rundas Battle

Hey all! Our Nintendo celebration continues this week with a look back at our absolute favorites pieces of Nintendo music. With literal decades-worth of music to choose from, picking exactly one track wasn’t exactly an easy decision to make. However, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be; all it took…

Hollow Knight is the Metroid Sequel I Never Knew I wanted

I know I’m a little late to the party here. I mean, Hollow Knight spent almost the last two years getting all manner of praise heaped upon it. If you’re interested in platformers at all, you’ve probably already heard how good the game is, and you don’t need me to convince you. All that said…
