Metroid: Dread - October 8th

It's slightly off-topic but for those wanting to jump into some Metroid ahead of October, I picked up Samus Returns on the 3DS and it's a lot of fun so far. It feels a heck of a lot bigger than Fusion and Zero Mission, looks excellent on handheld and the counter move is really satisfying to pull off. I think I prefer Fusion and Zero Mission so far - as they felt like much tighter experiences, but it's still good fun and makes me really excited for Dread. IMO, Mercury Steam have more than proved themselves as developers for Metroid 5 with this game.

I might give the 3ds game a go, but i really enjoyed AM2R. It was pretty difficult at times but i really enjoyed it. Would like to see what Nintendo's own version is like though.

Although I do have a copy of the GB one sitting in my drawer, I've not sunk that much time into the original. I will say, if you do get this, go into it expecting some change. The game feels massive, and I'd be pretty shocked if the original GB title was just as big (maybe it was, I'd like to find out some day)!

I gave SR another go, but by god is it still fugly. Well alright maybe not that bad, but the art direction does not match the series imo. Too bright would sum it up.

If the dev doesn't step up its game for Dread, I'm afraid this once legendary series will now go out with a whimper.

Finished Metroid Zero Mission. Loved it. Think i might jump back in and find some more secrets before moving on though.

 

It might not be your cup of tea, but if you have an itch for something more challenging, try a 15% run. It's insane, it's possible, and it'll crack the game right open. (Special ending image included.)

The new developer report has an interesting tidbit to share regarding Samus her new suit design:

Quote

"In Metroid Dread, Samus’s suit appears to have changed quite a bit from her previous missions. This is the result of the organic suit from Metroid Fusion – which was greatly transformed following the attack by the X parasitic lifeform and the injection of the Metroid vaccine – gradually returning to its original, mechanical Power Suit form."

Looks like some bio-mechanical fuckery can cause the suit to regrow its mechanical parts.

 

Also, from a bit later in the same report:

Quote

"Also, players can enjoy exploring with a greater degree of freedom in Metroid Dread compared to past instalments, so they can find various ways to strategise and play over and over again."

If you preorder through the Nintendo store (either edition, includes existing orders) you now get a key ring for your family car, a decent sized A2 poster for your university bedroom, and some stickers for your school pencil case. They’ve covered all the bases.
