I *heart* Metroid
Nintendo’s upcoming cubey console was unveiled last weekend at their SpaceWorld convention, but more exciting than that were the 10 seconds of footage hinting at a new Metroid game! though the series was never popular in Japan, the original Metroid was my favorite game as a youth, and Super Metroid is the best game ever. according to reports, the American press in attendance screamed like teenage girls at a Beatles concert when footage of Samus hit the big screen. actually, I saw a clip of the convention with audio, and they screamed the way frat boys scream as they speed past you in their red Toyota 4-Runner, heads out the window, but, whatever, I’m happy.
