Episode 84: Reviewing The Story of Metroid Dread (Spoilers!)

October 19, 2021

As the title implies, BIG SPOILER WARNING HERE!

 

Still with us? Good! Buckle in, because we are going long discussing everything we saw in Metroid Dread. Were we disappointed the Galactic Federation was left out of the story completely? Was this a sequel to Fusion, or was it really a sequel to Samus Returns? What did we think of finally meeting the Chozo and learning about their different tribes? How did we find Raven Beak as a villain? What was up with Adam? Was Samus not emotive enough? Did we like the EMMI's true mission? And how incredible was it when the [REDACTED] showed up mid-game?

All this and more, PLUS, come hear our thoughts on Sora as the last Smash Bros. fighter!

Episode 83: Metroid Dread First Impressions!

October 12, 2021

Metroid Dread is finally here and we spent all weekend with it! Having played an extensive bit of the game, the guys offer up their initial impressions of Dread: how do the controls feel and is the game as fast as we thought it would be? How do some of the new power-ups play and feel? What's our impressions of the areas and do they have enough distinction between them? Thoughts on the difficulty, particularly as it pertains to enemies and bosses? How do we find navigating the in-game map? How awesome are the EMMI zones?!

All this and so much more! Come celebrate the release of Metroid Dread with us, and be sure to tune in next week when we do a full story breakdown!

We are THREE DAYS AWAY from Metroid Dread. Wow. It feels unbelievable, but it's true. We've seen a lot in the build up to Dread, but here, the boys are talking about their final hopes for any features that we haven't seen yet: the return of old bosses, details on the Galactic Federation, an amazing score with original tunes, new and creative monsters, post game support, and so much more!

PLUS, the guys are joined this week by Tune in with Chewie, the artist behind the recently released Samus & Chill lofi album. We chat with Chewie about the origins of the album, what his favorite Metroid tracks are, the legalities of making an album like this, and what his thoughts on the upcoming Metroid Dread are!

This is an action packed show, so make sure you tune in, and please support Chewie and GameChops by checking out Samus & Chill here, where you can pledge to the vinyl campaign!

Episode 79: What We Learned From Metroid Prime‘s Lead Designer (Kiwi Talkz Interviews Mike Wikan)

September 15, 2021

This week, we're discussing a bunch of talking points that former lead designer of Retro Studios Mike Wikan shared with Kiwi Talkz. We can't recommend listening to the full interview enough (check it out here!), but we're here to give our thoughts on a couple topics they discussed, including the secret language of the Luminoth, the difficulty of the Boost Ball Guardian, the engine used to power Metroid Prime, the development and addition of multiplayer in Echoes, the inspiration behind the Ridley fight at the beginning of Corruption, and how realistic it would be to see Trilogy on the Switch.

All this, plus some talk about SSBU's Spirits, Nintendo adding Bluetooth to the Switch, and pondering if story sells video games. Come hang out with us, and make sure to sub to Kiwi Talkz on Youtube!

Episode 75: The Golden Age of Metroid, Metroid LEGOs, Dread Pre-Orders, and More!

Episode 75: The Golden Age of Metroid, Metroid LEGOs, Dread Pre-Orders, and More!

August 18, 2021

Dak is back, while Andy is off getting hitched (congratulations Andy and Sam!), as the show must go on. Doominal returns to join Dak for an in-depth reflection of the "Golden Age" of Metroid. We look back and reminisce on arguably the best time to be a Metroid fan. With so many great Metroid games released in such a short period of time, it's hard not to have fond feelings of that era. Join us as we remember some of our favorite moments from the Golden Age of Metroid, and what defines that era to begin with.

We also cover some Metroid current events, including: the recent Metroid Dread pre-order buzz; a new Metroid LEGO concept; and our (very) first impressions on Axiom Verge 2! Don't miss out on one of our longest episodes yet!
