Episode 13 - Phendrana Drifts: Mapping Metroid

May 26, 2020

Welcome to the very first edition of a going-to-be-semi-regular series of shows called Mapping Metroid! This series is going to focus on exploring a single area from one Metroid game and really having an in-depth discussion about it. To get us started off, the boys pick an area near and dear to them - Phendrana Drifts!

Come listen as we talk about our first impressions of Phendrana, what rooms in particular we really like, what enemies stick out to us, which powerups and expansions are cool, what we think of the music, which pieces of lore are really interesting, and so much more! This is the first Mapping Metroid, and we're on the lookout for suggestions on what to cover next!

ALSO - is Prime Trilogy really releasing on June 19th? Andy and Dak have different opinions, so come and weight in on which side sounds more likely!

Episode 12 - Does Paper Mario: The Origami King Give Weight to the ‘New 2D Metroid in 2020′ Rumors?

Episode 12 - Does Paper Mario: The Origami King Give Weight to the ‘New 2D Metroid in 2020′ Rumors?

May 19, 2020

What in the world was up with that Samus reference in the new trailer for Paper Mario: The Origami King? Was it just a coincidence, or something more? This week, Andy and Dak discuss the months long rumors about a new Paper Mario and 2D Metroid game coming to the Switch and debate what the chances a new Metroid game coming out in 2020 are now since the other half of the rumor came true.

We also put on our fun caps and talk about what a Paper Metroid game would look like! A paper ball Morph Ball? Reformed Space Pirates and Cowardly Sheegoths as Samus' partners? Heck yeah!

Come hang out with us this week as we have some talking spinoffs, cameos, rumors, and more!

Episode 11 - What Happened to the Chozo of SR388?

Episode 11 - What Happened to the Chozo of SR388?

May 12, 2020

We love a good mystery, and for over 30 years there's been no bigger mystery to Metroid fans than that of the Chozo! What happened to these guys, and where are they? The Chozo Memories in Samus Returns give us a bit of a clearer picture (maybe), so we break them down and theorize on the events depicted in the memories, and the origins and very nature of Samus herself! Come theorize with us!

All this, plus some followup from last weeks Ridley debate, and hey - Retro Studios has hired some people! Come chat with us, OR over on our new Discord channel in the Metroid Database Discord server (link below!)

Episode 9 - Could Metroid Exist in a Shared Universe With Games Like F-Zero and Star Fox?

Episode 9 - Could Metroid Exist in a Shared Universe With Games Like F-Zero and Star Fox?

April 28, 2020

I mean, no, right? That's the answer that we immediately jump to when we see the titular question. BUT maybe it's not as cut and dry as we think? The boys take a look and see how the shared universe gimmick can really help level up B-list properties, and then spitball what Nintendo franchises would even make sense.

Metroid x F-Zero? Star Fox? Xenoblade Chronicles?? R.O.B. the frickin' Robot!?? What are we even talking about?? Tune in to find out!

Episode 8 - What Evolutions Can the Next 2D Metroid Make?

Episode 8 - What Evolutions Can the Next 2D Metroid Make?

April 20, 2020

We're back this week to talk hypothetical's about the next 2D Metroid game! We all know it's coming sometime, but how will it evolve and change with the times? Should beams work in the same way, or would it be cool if you could create combo's? Do melee attacks have a place in Metroid? And what about starting a game off with all of Samus's powers right from the get go?

We're pondering how the next 2D Metroid can switch it up, so come and share your ideas with us! THANK YOU for helping us hit 100 followers over on Twitter! You still have (limited) time to ask us a Metroid question for our bonus show, so check us out on social media and be a part of the show!
