Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Looking back through the Metroid series, there is one game that stands out as the worst Metroid game in the series. No, not Other M, although a strong case could be made against it. 

Metroid 2: Return of Samus is an odd duck in the franchise; it maintains the gated progression that Metroid games are known for while failing at the environmental story-telling that has become inherent in the series. The biggest complaint about Metroid 2, however, is that the game was stranded on the GameBoy. With that said, Metroid: Samus Returns by Mercury Steam looks to solve the issues that Metroid 2 had, while expanding on a game that a majority of Metroid fans have never played.

CraneCon 2015 – Photo Gallery

There are probably only two things that are truly unstoppable in this world, the forces of nature and geeks determined to do good.  Yesterday in the shadow of Swedish furniture ingenuity AJ from Energy 103.7, a local San Diego radio station, called out again for his fellow geeks, nerds, dweebs, dorks and all other manner of awesome human beings to come out to the second CraneCon, his own mini Comic-Con.  Part of the annual AJ’s Kids Crane event where AJ ascends to the sky in a lift to live out the next week dedicated to raising money and gathering toys for the children at Rady Children’s Hosptial. This year’s CraneCon was another great event filled with amazing vendors, cosplayers, and your favorite heroes and heroines from Pixelatedgeek.com and Nintendiego.

Check out our gallery of the day’s events, and if you’re in the San Diego area and would like to give to this very worthy cause AJ will be living in his crane until Thurs., Nov. 19th.  Each day will have a different event going on that you can attend and drop of toys or go to any local Pacific Marine Credit Union or iHop to give a monetary donation.
