Metroid Database Bestiary & 15th Anniversary

   0
This story will probably be buried upon all the hype for the new Batman game, but I won't let that deter me.
The Metroid Database celebrated its 15th Anniversary yesterday. We are older than Google. Isn't that awesome?

Anyway, we have two brand new features on our site: the MDb Bestiary: A virtual encyclopedia of (eventually) every Metroid creature in existence. This is mostly my own idea, and I designed and directed the entire project. We have over 20 artists who gave it their all, and are still rapidly developing new entries for it each and every day. Go here to check it out: http://www.metroid-database.com/bestiary/index.php We currently have focused on the Classic series, but of course plan on doing the Primes as well.

Second: our annual contest is now underway: Design-A-Samus. http://metroid-database.com/features/contest-3.php We are asking anyone to redesign Samus in a new and interesting way. We're giving out tons of free prizes to the top three entries. You have 2 months to come up with a new design. GO!

----

So far, it seems as though the only people who are really supporting us are the current fans of the MDb. This isn't a bad thing, but I really wish I could get more people interested. Namely reporters who run these game sites. It seems as though if it doesn't involve scantily clad women, acts of extreme brutality, or trollish articles from a certain fat man with a British accent, then people just won't buy it. How do I overcome this?

I tried shouting out to almost every major gaming news site I could think of, and it doesn't seem like any has picked up the story yet. Let's see how many I can list, okay?

Destructoid, 1up, Kotaku, GoNintendo, Screw Attack, Joystiq, Siliconera, 4 Color Rebellion, Escapist, even IGN... anyone have anymore suggestions? I guess I could always go on Reddit or Digg, right?

I leave it to you. I hope you enjoy our features if you decide to try them out.
