Things I Like: Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt (DS)

Back when I got my Nintendo DS in the Christmas of 2004 (the system’s launch year) Nintendo included a free demo game called Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt since the actual Metroid Prime Hunters would not release until early 2006. It was a bit of a long wait, but it was cool to be givenContinue reading “Things I Like: Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt (DS)”

Things I Like: Samus Aran (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

One of my favorites since the original game on N64, Samus Aran’s form is pretty good here in Ultimate. I’ll never tire of trying to use a fully powered charge shot on foes.

Things I Like: Dark Samus (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

Though they took a lot of creative liberties as Kraid’s lair doesn’t look like this in anyContinue reading “Things I Like: Brinstar Depths Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Brinstar Depths Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

It is rather strange that Melee got two stages based on Brinstar, which is home to Kraid. Depths is quite a bit different than it’s “normal” countepart. After awhile, something starts to change… And whole stage starts to slowly tilt around. Which can be quite tricky to get back up if you get stuck. ButContinue reading “Things I Like: Brinstar Depths Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”
