BLOG ANNOUNCEMENT: September is the Month of Metroid!
Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I updated the blog. I had a lot of stuff going on for a few months after that last post and eventually I sort of forgot about the whole blog thing. But I'm back now, and with a very special month planned for you all.
As some of you might know, Metroid (specifically the 2D games) is my favorite video game series of all time. So you can imagine my shock in June while I was watching Nintendo's E3 presentation live with my friends when out of NOWHERE Nintendo announces that Metroid 5 is finally coming out! The first original Metroid game in NINETEEN YEARS! What's more, it's called Metroid Dread! That name might not mean much to you guys, but there have been rumors of a DS game with that same name floating around since 2005! I'm incredibly happy to see my favorite series getting a new entry. We Metroid fans don't get a lot of new games often.
To celebrate Dread coming out for the Switch on October 8th and the Metroid series's 35th anniversary, I have decided to make September the Month of Metroid. There are four Fridays that month, and four mainline Metroid games. I have decided to cover a new game each Friday on this blog, from 1986's NES Metroid all the way to 2002's Metroid Fusion. I won't be covering the spinoffs or Prime games, just the 2D ones. However, I will be talking about the remakes of each game (if they have them) alongside the originals. I hope you guys enjoy it and it helps you get hyped up for Dread!
Have you guys ever played a Metroid game before? Are you guys going to buy Dread when it comes out? Have you always wanted to try out the series but never have? Please comment below to let me know!
I can't wait to get blogging again!
