REVIEW – Metroid: Samus Returns

It’s been a while since we have been graced with a proper Metroid adventure. Sure there was Federation Force, and though I thought it was an okay game, many would argue that it doesn’t exist to them, but that’s neither here nor there. No, this is about Samus’ reimagined mission to SR388 in an attempt to rid the universe of Metroids.

Could Metroid: Samus Returns take on a fight against Samus Aran, or does it have less life than a victim of a Metroid feeding? Find out in our review after the break!

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 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!

OPINION – Should Nintendo Become Mobile Only?

Not too long ago, Nintendo announced their partnership with DeNA to, not only produce a unified account system, but also to bring beloved Nintendo IPs to mobile devices. At the time, Nintendo also announced the NX, Nintendo’s next dedicated video game system, to make sure people understood that Nintendo were not going to focus primarily on mobile platforms.

However, with companies like SEGA and Konami now driving more focus towards mobile platforms, and with the sluggish sales of the Wii U, is it time for Ninty to hand in the towel for console gaming and go mobile?

Check out reasons why we think Nintendo should and should not go mobile only/focused after the break!

Nintendo World Championships and more at E3

Yes, I know we are a bit late on this one, but after 25 years (I wasn’t even born back then) Nintendo are bringing back the Nintendo World Championships to coincide with their E3 presence. For the weeks leading up to E3 2015, Nintendo will be holding regional evens in North America for fans to compete to become the Nintendo World Champion 2015 at the Nokia Theatre, LA on the 14th June.

Not only will they have the Nintendo World Championships (which seems to have no love for other countries) but we can also expect to see their Digital Event, Treehouse Live streams and demos of Mario Maker at Best Buy locations.

Check out the entire press release after the break!
