But will these funky fresh little guys return in metroid dread? They survived 2 games so far.
Metroid: There Aren’t Any Missions
Metroid: Sammy Comes Back
Just A Really Great Metroid
Metroid Stick ‘Em Together
Metroid Uh Oh
For variety purposes while I’m doing FOLLOWER APPRECIATION DAYS on my blog I think I’ll stick with posting videogame music for the duration. There are two reasons: 1. I’m having fun providing commentary for it and 2. I’m racking up a decent amount of hits providing the listener with tracks from one of my favorite childhood and adult pastimes, which I barely talk about on my page by the by. If you don’t dig it, you can just ignore it, and I promise I’ll return to posting standard music in about a week or so. Let me tell you a quick story about my childhood. When I was a kid, unless your family was rich or something, you had to stick with one console; the Sega Genesis or the Super Nintendo. Until the Playstation and Dreamcast emerged on the market years later, I was a Nintendo loyalist and therefore had access to one of the best and most expansive game libraries of ALL TIME. One of those games was Super Metroid, a side-scrolling action-adventure title set in deep space. It made a lasting impression on me due to its oppressive and isolating alien-ridden environments, its protagonist Samus Aran (a trailblazing and ass-kicking woman in the annals of gaming history) and, of course, its absolutely phenomenal soundtrack. I was fiddling around on Soundcloud the other day and stumbled across a 30-track rendition of its soundstripe called Super Metroid Symphony. When I played this number, Arrival on Crateria, I instantly became a kid again. This is synthetic orchestral music from The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra which as faithfully as possible follows the tone and spirit of the original compositions by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano. Don’t ever say great music can't come from a videogame, smash play and tell me this isn’t eerie as all hell or that it doesn't suck you right into the atmosphere of an alien world. Anyone who has played this will flashback to when Samus lands her ship on the planet Zebes during a thunderstorm. Hope you enjoy some nostalgia!
Samus Aran from Metroid Dread
I love Samus's new Power suit from Metroid Dread, but just couldn't squeeze out enough patience to line the whole thing so I colored the sketch instead
Metroid Dread is going to be so interesting lore-wise because we’ll finally get to see what Samus’s relationship is with the Galactic Federation in a post-Fusion world. Has she decided to not work with the Federation anymore? Is she going to try and expose the Federation’s corruption herself and dismantle the organization? Is the Federation trying to hunt down and capture Samus themselves for acting against the Federation’s orders? Maybe they’ll even send a (real) bounty hunter to kill her. There’s so much potential to really shake up Metroid lore like Fusion did almost 20 years ago.
So I tried a few days ago to preorder the special edition of Metroid Dread (only preorder things that give physical things y’all) except mostly scalpers took em in seconds. However while trying to get it I managed to find this Banjo-Kazooie amiibo online and despite slow WiFi, I was able to order it in time. So glad to have one of my Smash mains and one of my fav game characters (still have the N64 cartridge). ￼
(Now for Shantae to b the last fighter so I can have an amiibo of her too)
They’re girlfriends~ ✨👩❤️👩⭐
(Also hi I haven’t posted here in a long time, lol. I’ve spent pretty much the entire month doing commission stuff and trying to save up. ;;
As a result, I haven’t really been able to finish a lot of the sketches and doodles I’ve done during my P5S fixation so I’ll probably just post them as is since I’ve kinda lost motivation to polish them up sdkgjk x’D Soooo yeah! Expect me dumping P5S stuff within the coming...days? week? I’ll likely queue them in or do them in batches; I’m inconsistent so I might flip between either. ;;
But yeah, I’m sort of back and I’m commemorating it by drawing (one of) my Smash OTP~!! 🥺 Though if I’m being honest the first one was an old doodle lying around that I kinda only polished up, heh. )
Power bombs are everything
🍄 I'M DISCUSSING THE NINTENDO DIRECT FOR E3 2021 WITH ROSS SIEV LIVE! 🍄
What did we think of the presentation? Are we excited for Breath of the Wild's sequel? How do we feel about WarioWare: Get it Together? Did anything disappoint us?
SO MANY BUTTONS
NINTENDO E3 2021 RECAP!
It’s us again, back with yet another recap of E3 proportions and chatty notions - this time covering our highlights from Nintendo’s Direct! After the previous presentation’s (very) underwhelming nature (that’s our opinion... Don’t shoot), we felt Nintendo were due an absolutely huge performance - and we weren’t far wrong! (That’s also our opinion... Start the shooting).
Whilst it was confirmed there would be 40 minutes of software shown, we still held out hope of confirmation on the consistently rumoured ‘Switch Pro’. This of course never came, because they told us it wouldn’t. Crazy how disappointed you can get, even when you’ve been told NOT to expect something, huh.
Let’s instead talk about the titles that well and truly got our attention and our fingers itching for launch dates across 2021/22.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania
Rolling up first is a collection of games that needs no introduction! Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania does what it always does... Makes us want to play it at the very sight of it. I absolutely rinsed Super Monkey Ball Deluxe on the GameCube back in the day. Hang on, “back in the day”... I am OLD. One of the most frustratingly addictive series of games for sure! It launches on 5th October.
This release will include the three original mainline games in one 20th Anniversary Edition! It’s coming on PS4, PS5, Xbox One/X, and Switch!
Pre-order with us right here.
Mario Party Superstars
A blast from parties past... And we’re all invited! Fond memories arise once again as I remember getting Super Mario Party on Nintendo 64 for my 9th birthday! A game series that’s nothing but fun, be it playing against mates or pitting your party skills against the computer!
Mario Party Superstars launches on 29th October and will boast 5 boards from the Nintendo 64 era as well as 100 mini-games from the series catalogue! Return to play the memorable ‘Peach’s Birthday Cake’ and ‘Space Land’ boards, and rekindle the flame that’s burnt for mini-game mayhem since childhood! That may just be me... But I am OLD.
All game modes work with online play to bring these old courses to life in 2021 for more than just couch co-op, and in true Mario Party style - it promises to be heaps of fun.
You can pre-order with us right here!
We have arrived at not just my favourite game from the presentation, but of the entire catalogue of new releases announced at E3 2021. If you’ve read our blogs for a while then you’ll know that this guy right here is a fanboy of Super Metroid.
Did I expect something on Metroid Prime 4 in this presentation... Yes. So when I saw ‘Metroid 5′ on my screen it threw me completely. Metroid Dread takes place in the events following Metroid Fusion (another MUST PLAY) on Planet ZDR, an environment completely overrun with alien lifeforms and a mechanical robot menace named EMMI. We’ll say no more if you’ve not seen it, just watch the trailer, man. Watch the trailer and then watch it again.
In what’s the first 2D Metroid entry in a longggg time, we’re finally getting the sequel to Fusion that we always wanted. Metroid 4 does also get a mention, but only to state that its still in development.
Launching on 8th October, you can pre-order Dread right here!
WarioWare: Get It Together!
IT’S A ME, WAAAARIO! Yes this fan-favourite series of comedic micro-game fun is getting its first instalment on Switch! Releasing on 10th September - there’s plenty to look forward to when mayhem comes back around!
For the first time, we’ll control Wario and his colorful crew in either solo or 2-player coop across 200+ madcap micro games! From assembling a robot to pulling out a statue’s armpit hair... Nothing should surprise you when it comes to this guy!
You can pre-order with us right here!
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2
Two years since its announcement... We FINALLY get to see something on Breath Of The Wild 2. Not a lot we might add, but more than enough to remind us that when Nintendo keeps us waiting, it’s always worth it.
We’ll be returning to Hyrule - and the skies above in 2022! That’s all we know. However, we’d expect it’ll be Holiday season? Unless it’ll perhaps coincide with a Switch Pro launch... This is pure conjecture and we’re getting carried away.
The trailer suggests that we’ll be spending as much time in the air as we do on the ground in the sequel. Floating islands up high, the castle, once again consumed by the wrath of Calamity Ganon... Has risen up and levitates with evil imposition over the lands of Hyrule.
Look, we literally can’t wait. What else can we say? We hope and pray for more on this as soon as possible. Sit tight.
Other titles announced:
Shin Megami Tensei V - 12th November 2021
Danganronpa Decadence - 2021
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks Of Hope - 2022
Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp - 3rd December 2021
I may be biased but I think this was the best show at E3 this year. There’s a lot that says Nintendo are finishing 2021 strongly and with even bigger plans for 2022!
There’ll be more from us on all things Nintendo as some of these titles get bigger coverage closer to launch. Until then, thanks for reading!
So I found out my game wasn’t softlocking, I’m just a fool who’s in too much of a hurry to kill everything in the room especially when there is exactly one! enemy to kill.
Anyway I beat Kraid.
reminder that there’s another Jimothy stream today besties, same time same place 😳
I woke up and Metroid dread was still real
It wasn't even that long since the last 2d metroid.
