Sweet Samus! New Metroid Prime 3 Screenshots (now with 20% more haiku!)

Whether you actually love Metroid or you just like to fap to Samus, you’ll dig these brand-new screenshots from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Though, for those severely patience-disabled, it might make it harder to wait the recently-announced extra week’s delay (OH GOD A WHOLE WEEK) until the new August 27th release date.

I imagine the week’s delay is so that they can add the quintessential “Samus gets naked when she’s dead” feature. In next-gen graphics (or whatever Wii’s graphics are). That’s gotta be it. Right? …Oh, just leave me alone, leave me to the twisted, symbiotic embrace of my own romantic imagination.

Speaking of romance, people seriously love their Samus. So in the spirit of anticipation, with the aim of killing an extra week’s time, I have a proposition. Hit the jump…        

I propose we compose Samus-devoted Metroid haiku. Let’s see who can do the best one. The winner gets either a fabulous prize, or my undying admiration, whichever one’s better (and guess which that is). If you want, y’know… information, you can go read this fab interview with Retro Studios over at Play. But the for truly enlightened, the tender aesthetes: Five-seven-five, guys, GO! …YEAH!!! 

Power Suit, ruby

Or Chozo blood infusion

I want your bounty.

The Luminoth see

Samus and Dark Samus, but

Both at the same time?

— 

Corruption, my dear

Will it finally be time

To hear you speak words?

I'm a game writer, which means I spend all day in a bacchanal of fabulous nerdiness. My fave games are Ys I & II, Phantasy Star 2 (!!) old Sonic (not the emo RPG crap), anything on Turbo Grafx, Zelda, Metal Gear, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame (pretty much all survival-horror), most Final Fantasy, Shadow Hearts, RPGs that don't suck (are there any?) and for my gentle side, I like me some Katamari and Harvest Moon. Hearts for Destructoid!
