Make your own replica Samus beam cannon

The same outfit that taught you how to make your own Fallout 4 Pip-Boy on the cheap has loosed another video into the DIY-osphere, this time to make your own Samus Aran arm cannon with which to hug cute, crawling metroids.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is out August 19

Nintendo announced a new Metroid at E3 last year. Unfortunately it's Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which is, uh, well. Fortunately, this technicality did mean that we got to try and shave an approximation of a metroid into Zack's hair in...

The game no one asked for, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, now has a teaser site. What's that you say? It's a million years away so we don't need a teaser site? Well what if I told you that it's slated for a spring release window in t...

This Super Metroid hack is a pseudo-remake of Metroid Fusion

We don't know much about what's in store for the future of Metroid. Sure, Federation Force is coming (and I begrudgingly shaved a Metroid into the back of my head when it was announced), but I'm hungry for another side-scroller or firs...

This Zero Suit Samus figure puts the amiibo to shame

Two months ago, Nintendo released its Zero Suit Samus amiibo. It was adequate, but real Metroid fans might be left wanting. The Good Smile Company, the company with a good name and good intentions, has a superior figure that will sate ...

What a beautiful morning. The birds are gone, the children are screaming and the lovely smell of fire and brimstone.

 
Khalid Eternal Nigh

Overwatch is great. Its fun, its not F2P, everyone has access to everything needed to play without grinding. All the charcters feels unique and interesting in terms of gameplay. Its like Im back in 2007 era TF2. Classic TF2 art style is still bette

 
Dreggsao

One of my comments needs approval. Is it because I said Breitbart? I think swearing is OK here.

 
SirDavies

Amazed some people were apparently touched, blown away by dat GoT ending. The whole scene has a level of cheesiness and incoherence unprecedented for the series.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Beat the Leviathan with pistols. Roxxis Rubi to keep me alive, that Thief gun Scarlett drops to kill it. That aside, the idea of Marcus raising a child bothers me.

 
JcDent

40K Knight banners, because if youre dropping $140 on a plastic giant mecha, you want it to be as chivalrous as possible. Knight Paladin still the best, yo.

 
ChrisHannard

I cant understand all the love this is suddenly getting. I mean, its good, but why has it suddenly become of such interest to video gamers?

 
ragm54

Ive been reading you guys with Overwatch Overwatch Overwatch. Meanwhile Im reminded that my potato couldnt even run it at 4FPS, and I refuse to play it on PS4 (TF2 has destroyed my will to play FPS on gonna go play Valkyria Chronicles.

 
JcDent

In a move not expected by anyone, the Heralds of Ruin Kill Team Rules (The Good Warhammer 40K Kill Team Rules) have been updated. While Im not too hype about Eldar near-D shenanigans and Rogue Trader Ork weapons, the Grot Rebel list seems to be blast!

 
Fuzunga

I might actually get Overwatch in the near future if I can play it with you guys. Ive never had a group to play with before.

Finally got around to starting Pocket Jockey. What a delightful little game. I absolutely adore the dialogue and the main character. The gameplay is really fun too. Fun fact, CJ is quoted on the eshop in the sales banner for the game right now.

The next person to ask me to hold the door today is getting kicked in the balls. While Im sobbing of course. Seriously fuck my coworkers.

Is it acceptable to rant here? Even if its not about games? Cause Im sick of my female facebook friends linking to their odyssey online articles they wrote. Youre 19 and a freshman in college. You dont have all the answers. Sorry this isnt video gamey

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

 
Torchman

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

 
Lex

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

 
Nekrosys

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

Vita vs PSP. Go. Nonono. Not the PSP Go. Just go.

Hey, just a streamin thing. free to join me for some REmake, ask me some questions about Microbiology and whatnot if you are interested.

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

 
Steven Hansen

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

 
Osc

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

 
Vadicta

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

 
TheBlondeBass

Im so sorry GM, I should have been a better trainer for you... I mean, you had shitty moves and stats, but maybe if we got to talk to each other, understand each other, things wouldnt have come to this...

Hey heres a random thought, remember Nintendo TVii? Me neither.
