Dragon Quest 7

REVIEW – Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past

Released 15 years ago in 2001, Dragon Quest VII was an RPG that was ahead of its time. Heck, I never played it until this review, and I can see how vast the game is! Dragon Quest VII follows the quest of Auster and co., as they explore the mysteries of the past and uncover new lands in the present.

Is Dragon Quest VII another fantastic RPG for the 3DS, or will it become a forgotten relic? Find out in our review, after the break!

Metroid Prime: Federation Force AMAA Answers

Metroid Prime: Federation Force came out today in Europe. If you aren’t sure whether or not to purchase the title, we hosted a Ask Me Almost Anything last week on the forums. Any questions you had, we answered them, and though it was a fairly quiet, there were still some interesting questions I didn’t even think about in our review (which you can view here).

You can see all the questions asked by the community after the break!

September Direct 2016

Nintendo 3DS Direct To Start Off September 2016

While spending my 21st birthday being rather lazy (to be fair, I did go to the Crystal Maze experience this past Sunday), I was informed that Nintendo will be hosting a brand new Direct on the 1st September 2016! This Nintendo 3DS focused Direct will go live at 3pm BST. The last Direct was way back in March, so it is nice to see a new one finally airing soon!

We aren’t completely certain what this direct will pertain, though we are told that it will be Nintendo 3DS focused. We were also told that plans on the NX and mobile will not be revealed. Perhaps we could see a new game announcement or two?

There will also be a North American version airing on the same day at 7am PT.

Metroid Prime Federation Force

REVIEW – Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force follows the exploits of a rookie Marine from the Galactic Federation’s Federation Force programme. Initially carrying out research of indigenous creatures, exterminating threats, and collecting data within Bermuda System, soon turns into an intergalactic mission that stakes the very existence of the Federation, and quite possibly life as we know it. This entry in the Metroid series is a first-person, co-operative shooter, which places you, and up to three other friends, in the Federation Force garb.

Though the game has received plenty of backlash in its pre-release, could Metroid Prime: Federation Force actually be an intergalactic adventure to remember, or will it be consumed by the black hole of mediocrity? Find out in our in-depth review… after the break!

Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force AMAA

UPDATE – I have decided that this will be an all day thing, therefor the thread is now open for all your questions!

A brand new feature is coming to NintyBuzz; next week, we are hosting our first AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything). With Metroid Prime: Federation Force coming out fairly soon, we’d thought we’d start our first AMAA with the title.

The Metroid Prime: federation Force AMAA will take place on Friday 26th August 2016 from 6pm BST. This is currently going through a testing phase, so expect some errors and ‘whoopsies’. When the time comes, just log onto the forum, go to the Metroid Prime: Federation Force AMAA thread (clicky), and post any questions you have for the game. I’ll then follow up some of the questions and will update the original post at the end. If you haven’t got a NintyBuzz account, you can create one in less than two minutes by clicking here! It should be obvious, but I will only answer serious questions about the game. Any questions we deem unnecessary will be deleted.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force releases exclusively for Nintendo 3DS Family Systems on the 19th August in North America, and the 2nd September in Europe!

Metroid 30th - A Retrospect

Metroid 30th Anniversary – A Retrospect

30 years ago today, Samus Aran set off on her first adventure on the NES, where she explores the depths of Zebes to stop the Space Pirates from exploiting Metroid lifeforms for their own devious agenda. Since then, she has been an influential game character due to the representation of her gender. She is independent, strong, and a badass bounty hunter who has even wiped out entire species and destroyed planets!

To celebrate 30 years of the series, I produced this little retrospect video which showcases some of her best moments over three decade run of the series. Let’s hope it doesn’t end there and there are many more years to come. Enjoy!
