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.

Top 10 things I want to see at E3 2015

E3 2015 is less than a week away and we’re already being bombarded with a slew of game announcements, some small and some incredibly huge. Last week we got our first look at the highly anticipated¬†Fallout 4, and just recently the release date for Three One Zero’s horrific “first-person experience” in space, Adr1ft, leaked via a trailer that was supposed to be debuted at E3. Interestingly enough, it seems a lot of big announcements have been trickling out prior to E3, which only leaves me to believe that even bigger and better announcements await us next week. That being the case, I’ve decided now would be the best time to voice my crazy expectations for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
