This video, Haloid is making the rounds, but as both a big Halo fan and a HUGE Metroid fan, I’d have to turn in my fanboy card if I didn’t link it as well.
It’s extremely well made, excellently choreographed and has a lot of charm. While I don’t care for the ending, this video is a must watch.
So I finally, after months of off-and-on playing, finished Metroid Fusion. Even though it was actually easier than I thought it would be, it was a fun game. It didn’t knock my socks off like Metroid Prime did, but it was an enjoyable game. Playing it on the DS was a treat. It looked so beautiful on the bright DS Lite screen. So pretty.
Anyway, now that I’ve finished it, I’ve decided to go back and play through the original Metroid again (prompted in no small part by this post by Jeremy Parish). The question is which “version” of the game should I play? I still have my old-school NES hooked up in the basement, complete with a copy of Metroid. The main thing that stops me from taking the retro route are the codes that would have to be entered in time and time again. So it comes down to the Metroid Classic or Zero Mission (on the GBA, of course). I’d also like to grab a copy of Metroid II for the Game Boy and of course Super Metroid. Super Metroid may prove more difficult but I never finished it back in the day. But those are topics for another post.
So, any suggestions? Right now I’m leaning toward picking up a copy of Zero Mission. I like the idea of an updated version of the classic game. I finished the original game years ago but still have the Metroid bug. Going back through it should be a fun trip down memory lane.
