AM2R: A fine tribute to a legendary franchise

[From the community blogs: JuIc3 gushes over one the finest fan projects we've ever seen. I'm pretty sure Nintendo already sent a bomb squad after it, so enjoy it while it lasts! -Niero] I still recall my first experience with the Metroid f...   read

This Metroid 2 remake is hot hot hot and you can play the whole thing now

I'm as sad as CJ is that Nintendo doesn't seem to be celebrating Metroid's 30th anniversary. But the indie-developed AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) is finally here. We wrote about it all the way back in 2008, so this is definitely a l...   read

If Nintendo won't celebrate Metroid's 30th anniversary, we will

There is a part of me that can't believe the original Metroid came out 30 years ago today. 30 years of exploration, epic boss battles, haunting music... and not a blip of acknowledgement from Nintendo. No special website, no anniversar...   read

At this point, the reaction to Metroid Prime: Federation Force seems split

Let's check in with the E3 2015 trailer for Metroid Prime: Federati.....whoa! It's 10,000+ likes to 88,000+ dislikes. That's right, people hated it. But wait, there's more. It's been over a year now, and some of you out there have came arou...   read

This spectacular animation is a great pitch for a Metroid TV show

Clocking in at a short 55 seconds, this "Metroid Short Animation" from Rabbit Machine is only able to give us the gist of what Samus is all about, but it gets the point across. I've watched it five times or so already this morning, and damn...   read

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...   read
