Happy Burfday to Metroid/Samus Aran and Chrono Cross
Metroid is 23 years old today in North America August 15, 1987. Technically Metroid (NES) was released first in Japan on August 6, 1986 so it makes her 24 years old. I never did like original Metroid because you can easily get lost through out the game, 7.0 rating from me. So I prefer the remake Metroid: Zero Mission GBA for making it much more enjoyable. In the Metroid remake you will also find a playable version of Metroid NES version once you have completed the game. Too bad Nintendo is late/delaying Metroid: The other M this summer. It would be awesome if they had released the game on time.
Chrono Cross is 10 years old in the US and you never know if this game will be re-released on PSN someday. The release date for PS1 was August 15, 2000. I do have this game for ps1 except I haven't gotten around to it lately. Still worth playing considering it sort of fits in Chrono Trigger universe somehow. The orginal release date from Japan November 18, 1999.
