The NintyBuzz Awards 2016 – The Results

My, my, my, what an unfortunate couple weeks it has been.

The community has voted, and the results are in. Find out which games have won NintyBuzz Awards… after the break!

Metroid Prime Federation Force

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).

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!

Shout out your favourite Metroid moments in the comments below! (Please make comments via the article thread on the forum as we are experiencing some technical difficulties regarding commenting)

Read my impressions on the mobile title after the break!
