Episode 61: A Discussion About the Metroid Community and if They’re Afraid of Success

May 12, 2021

Get ready for something a little different this week. The boys are joined by friend Doominal Crossing to discuss the latest news and issues that have been going around the last week, with everything leading back to the Metroid community and its response. We take a look at Fortnite, MP Trilogy, and the harassment backlash and ask some though questions. Has this community forgotten how to hope? Are fans justifiably worried about Metroid's image? And are we as a fanbase afraid that Metroid might achieve too much success?

Come take a listen as we talk the good and the bad of all the latest happenings in the community!

Episode 60: Does Sylux Really Pose a Threat to Samus and More Metroid Q&A!

Episode 60: Does Sylux Really Pose a Threat to Samus and More Metroid Q&A!

May 4, 2021

It's PART 2 of our Discord AMA, and once again, you guys delivered some super interesting questions for the fellas to mull over. Does Sylux have enough credibility to take on Samus in Prime 4? What are our favorite Metroid songs in the series? What are our favorite Metroid ROM hacks? Why are people so obsessed with the story of Metroid 5? And could Sylux... be Samus's... brother?! 

All this, and so much more! Thank you to everyone who asked us a question, and make sure you're a member of our Discord Server as we'll do another AMA again soon!

Episode 59: What If Metroid Prime 4 Fails and More Metroid Questions Answered!

April 27, 2021

We asked you guys to join our Discord and feed us Metroid questions and, boy, did you guys rise to the challenge - so much so that this is only part of our Discord AMA! Listen to our rapid fire answers to such great questions as: What if Metroid Prime 4 fails? If Other M was non-canon, how would we tell Adam's backstory? Would Super Metroid look better in Zero Mission's art style? How did Dak and Andy meet? And maybe most importantly, would we consider Donkey Kong 64 a Metroidvania game?

All this, plus some Halo, Castlevania, and Smash chatter ! Come check it out!

Episode 58 - Definitively Ranking Metroid Fusion

Episode 58 - Definitively Ranking Metroid Fusion

April 20, 2021

Welcome to the second installment of Definitive Ranking, the series where we take ten categories that really make a Metroid game and rank them 1-5. Up this time? Metroid Fusion! While the first time round with Prime 2: Echoes, the guys had pretty similar perspectives, they couldn't be more opposite in Fusion!

 

Come listen and see where you fall, and get ready for next week as we're hosting our first ever Omega Metroid Discord AMA!

 

Just as a refresher, the categories we're ranking each game in are:

- World / Atmosphere (the vibe, the setting, the mood)

- Art Style (design of Samus, the enemies, the graphics in general)

- Story (what works, what doesn't)

- Pacing / Progression (are there any parts that really bog the player down, or is it still fun getting lost?)

- Gameplay / "Gimmick" (what new or different gameplay aspects we like)

- Items / Abilities (how are the powerups and are they cool and practical)

- Areas (how does each individual area look, feel, play, etc.)

- Enemies / Bosses (are they fun, creative, etc.)

- Expansions / Powerups (are the expansions hidden throughout the world fun, creative, and enjoyable to collect?)

- Music (are we humming along?)

Of course, all of these are subjective, and we're putting our critics hats on, but we want to hear what you have to say on Twitter!

Episode 57: Shadow Complex - Inspired By Metroid

April 14, 2021

It's time for another installment of Inspired By Metroid! This time stepping up to the plate: 2009's Shadow Complex from Epic Games. Is this a Metroidvania worth playing? Weeell... at the very least, we have some great discussion about what we liked and (really) didn't like. 

But that's not all! There's tons of other talk on this episode, from discussion on our first in depth look at Axiom Verge 2 to our thoughts on the latest batch of supposed Metroid leak rumors. 

... AND DID WE MENTION WE STARTED OUR OWN DISCORD?? We'd love for you to come on by and chat about this week's episode with us!
