Rewriting Characters

You know something that has always bothered me to no end? It is sequels. More specifically, sequels that actively go out of there way to destroy their foundations. Personally, while it isn’t my hope that games do this, I am perfectly fine with the sequels not making any major changes to the original so longContinue reading “Rewriting Characters”

Update on Metroid Dread

I want to start by saying this real quick. Every now and then I might add one of these just to add in address some things that either I didn’t think of the first time around, stuff I forgot to include or things such as DLC that I feel deserves some mention. Just something toContinue reading “Update on Metroid Dread”

Thoughts on Metroid Dread

We have finally reached the end of the year everybody. It’s potentially the start of a new one depending on when you read this/ when I put this out. Truth be told, I am amazed I was able to hold off this long in talking about this game. However, I wanted to do this properlyContinue reading “Thoughts on Metroid Dread”

Now Hear Me Out: Metroid Completion

Earlier this month we talked a little about how speedrunning Metroid games gave you different endings based on how fast you completed them. Today we are going to take things up a notch.

Now Hear Me Out: Bounty Hunting

So today let’s talk about one of Samus’ other identities. In addition to being one of the most famous female characters in videogames, she is also known as a top bounty hunter. Truthfully this title isn’t as impactful as she pretty much only excepts bounties from the Galactic Federation. It concerns me how often sheContinue reading “Now Hear Me Out: Bounty Hunting”

Metroid Completion Cliché?

I realize that the title is a bit confusing. Don’t worry, I’ll get to that soon enough. First let’s talk about the original impact when people first completed the original game Metroid. Well, it depended on the completion time, but those who completed the game under a certain time were given the surprise that theContinue reading “Metroid Completion Cliché?”

Thoughts on Motion Controls

Now you might be wondering why I call myself a casual gamer. If you weren’t, well I’m going to talk about it anyway. Now I was pretty off and on with videogames when I was growing up. It wasn’t until I was twelve that I got a console that I used consistently. That console wasContinue reading “Thoughts on Motion Controls”
