Fan-made Metroid manga looks freaking fantastic photo



I'm really impressed with this manga. Most of it's in color, and all of it looks awesome. The story is pretty weird; there's a whole lot of words, but nothing really happens. That's OK though. As far as free online comics go, you can't ask for much more than this.

As with so many things that Nintendo fans produce, I have to wonder why Nintendo of America doesn't make use of this comic. How much would it cost them to get the rights to it and release it as a pre-order bonus for Metroid: Other M, or hire the artist to draw some manga to correspond with the game? It would probably be a hell of a lot cheaper than hiring Beyonce to sell Rhythm Heaven.

Speaking of Metroid: Other M, now that I'm done with Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, I've been thinking about the game a lot. Can't believe that it's coming out in just a couple of months. With this, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Donkey Kong Country Returns, 2010 could be the best year for Nintendo sequels ever.

Am I onto something with that proclamation, or am I just high off of all that half-naked Samus oogling? Hit the link below to oogle half naked Samus for yourself, then tell me how high you feel in the comments.

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
