NintyBeats – Metroid 34

This month marks thirty-four years since the release of Metroid on the Famicom Disk System in Japan. Since that historic date, the world has been treated to a variety of traditional side-scrolling and first-person adventure games starring the incredible intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran.

For this months NintyBeats, I am delighted to detail my top five favourite Metroid themes! It wasn’t an easy choice, as the music of Metroid has been very inspiring to me over the years. Please check them out below!

Review – SuperEpic: The Entertainment War

SuperEpic: The Entertainment War is absurd. I feel that getting this out of the way is important as the game doesn’t hide behind absurdity in any way. It uses it to exaggerate issues within the games industry to tell a cutting commentary on the state of games as a service, microtransactions and the lack of concern for quality; only the profit margins matter. Of course this doesn’t affect the whole industry, but SuperEpic proposes the idea of these harrowing practises taking over to form an Orwellian dystopia with a brainwashed society that only works, plays and spends, doomed to repeat this cycle forever.

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

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!

Opinion: Samus is back, but are the fans?

For the first time in thirteen years, Nintendo will be releasing a traditional 2D Metroid title. At the time of writing, we are just two weeks away from Metroid: Samus Returns arriving in North America and Europe. The initial response from the press has been fantastic and it looks like it will be the game that fans of the traditional Metroid games have dreamed of. Nintendo appear to have listened to the Metroid fan community with their criticism of Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime: Federation Force over the years. Samus is back! Metroid seems to have returned to its roots. So why are some fans so angry and upset? (more…)

One outlet that has grabbed the attention of Nintendo fans in particular is GameSpot, as they have a three brief segments in their E3 schedule between Tuesday and Thursday which are dedicated to a specific Nintendo game.

it is currently unclear whether these games have already been announced, or if they are games which will be revealed during Nintendo’s Spotlight event. Either way, it’s worth checking out.

The first segment is on Tuesday at 11am PT, then on Wednesday at 1pm PT, and finally on Thursday at 11am PT again.

Review – Hollow Knight

Imagine Dark Souls, then imagine it with the gameplay of a Metroid-Vania game, finally imagine all the characters replaced by ghost/bug people and you have a basic summary of Hollow Knight. (more…)
