September 23rd 2017- Metroid Samus Returns review


Metroid Samus Returns*Image pulled from Nintendo

Last week Metroid Samus returns came out for the Nintendo 3DS. It is no secret that Metroid is one of my favorite series of all time. So when I came in I had extremely high expectations. I am extremely glad to say the Metroid 2 remake blew away my expectations and it is a much better game than I hoped. (I swear I do not work for Nintendo nor do I get paid to review their games, I just play a ton of Nintendo games) (*Warning, this reiew does contain spoilers, but no major spoilers, thankfully)Well on to the review.

Complaints (2)(These are minor/insignificant complaints) When I finished the game, I half hoped you would be able to play the original Metroid 2, but sadly, no. The only other complaint is that you have to get amibo’s and have an amibo reader to experience the game fully, but that’s really my only complaints. Still play or get the game though (legally).

Graphics- 10 out of 10-  When I saw this game on YouTube, I initially thought wow, this game doesn’t have the greatest graphics. But that was just an assumption that YouTube and how the game would look would be the same. That was mistake primero Uno. This game has amazing graphics, and I think that statement is an understatement. This game has some of the singlehandedly best graphics for a 3DS game.

Gameplay- 10 out of 10- When I heard the game has a ton of additions since Metroid 2, I was skeptic. But these additions are amazing. It’s extremely fun to mess with the 360 degree aiming, and the programming for the  360 degree aiming is impressive. Every Aeion ability gets better each time, along with useful. The great part is that the spider ball is finally back in a 2D Metroid game, and it isn’t an item that makes the game too easy. The only thing is when you teleport, it is implied that you can go places other than SR388. Also this game is sort of like Metroid Zero Mission where the game is longer than the original.

Sound/Music-10 out of 10)- When I first played the game(during the beginning, not the whole time) I thought they just reused the soundtrack from the original game. They did not. They revamped many (and I mean many) if not all of the sound track. My favorite is the final phase of the final boss.

Other things (Warning, some of this section is speculation, and some is spoilers in general. Don’t read this until after you play the game, or if you watch some random person play. Perferably the first. Then comment to see if you agree, disagree, or other)- I liked the games plot. But from the final boss, it makes super Metroid make complete sense and from the final cutscene, it shows there is either A) a Metroid Fusion remake coming out, B) a Super Metroid remake coming out, or C) both. (Spoiler) For the love of it they even showed a fully rendered x-parasite, and the transformation of the creature who would eventually possess Samus’s suit. They even have a Metroid Fusion Mode where you play with the suit on from fusion, and if that doesn’t scream WE ARE MAKING A METROID FUSION REMAKE, I do not know what does. But even from the final boss fight, you see basically what happened at the beginning of super Metroid.

Summary- This game is an extremely fun game. Although some of the boss fights are hard, this game is still incredibly fun. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone, and I would recommend for whoever is reading this to go and buy this game now. The only reason I would say not to buy it is if this is a decision between paying bills, food, or getting this game. But even then I would still recommend this game.

Final score- 10 out of 10

That’s all for now

August 21st, 2017- Metroid other M recommendation

With two new Metroid games just around the corner, I am here today to review Metroid the other M and recommend it to just about anybody. First of all I would like to say this game is both 3D and 2D at the same time. This offers for some very interesting gameplay mechanics, as you can go from a side-scrolling section to a completely explore-able area. Now on to the main chunk. If you like Metroid fusion, then you will either really love this game or hate it. This game in its core is how I’d like to say a re-imagining prequel.  Some people might be going “What in the world does that mean?”. Basically it feels like it was heavily inspired by Metroid Fusion, almost to the point of a remake (Which would be awesome if Nintendo made a remake for Metroid Fusion), but it is made in a way that the plot is completely different, the gameplay is extremely different, but it is extremely similar. I love this completely. This is a game in which its plot is one of its strongest points. Many people might not like this game (To my knowledge), but it is extremely fun. You even get to see bits of Metroid 2 and Super Metroid. This is also one of the few games where you even get to learn some of Samus’ past. That is why I give this game a 9.9 out of ten stars. So go play it, and get ready for Metroid Samus Returns, and that is all for now.


July 25th, 2017- Kid Icarus 3D remake review

Kid Icarus

After a really long hiatus, I am proud to review the 3D remake of Kid Icarus. (Sorry if this is one of my more sloppy works, it has been a while) Now before fans of the series go get their pitchforks and go,” Really, recommend Kid Icarus, that is basically giving a baby a hand grenade,” yes, that is what I’m doing after so long. This game is insanely hard, but this series has as much love from Nintendo like the Joker and Harley Quinn. But this game is insanely fun once you get past the wanting to throw your controller to the wall. On to why this game is so great.

Plot (5 out of 5)- In this classic, you play as Pit, an angel from Greek mythological times, trying to save Palutena, the goddess of light, from imprisonment from Medusa, goddess of darkness. Pit is a young angel who can’t fly, and one day Medusa turned all angels but him into stone because he was a crippled angel. This is one of the darker plots of Nintendo, so overall I give it a A+.

Difficulty (-5 out of 5, aka difficult like there is no tomorrow)- In this game falling means instant death, getting hit too many times means death, and you have to start the stage all over if you die. To be completely honest, the reason it is so difficult is the first level. You start out in the underworld, and guess where the hardest enemies are. They put Reapers left and right, but to be completely honest, if you beat the first level, the rest of the game is a breeze.

Game play (5 out of 5)- The game mechanics are overly simple. All it is is jump, platform, shoot, pray you don’t get killed, duck occasionally (Do not do this on clouds, this can easily get you killed) and occasionally switch to hammer to free centurions during fortresses. That is all there is to it.

Summary- Kid Icarus is a fun classic you can easily get from Nintendo on the 3DS. I would highly recommend it, and overall I would give it a five out of five. If you can beat it, then any hard game might become a lot easier. That is all for today.
