I think I still like Metroid Fusion better because it has a little story tension going on and more lore to explore

Hahahaahahhahaha this will give Walter a stroke. :ubik: :ganishka:

maybe now I'll check out some of the remakes I haven't tried like Zero Mission and Samus Returns. I have some fond and not so fond memories of Metroid II on my GameBoy, which was one of the first two, and only for the longest time, games I had for it (though I could still play the original; my GB still works and I spliced together a couple of AC adapter wires to make a custom plug block for it =).

Zero Mission is great. Very well polished, although also quite short. Samus Returns... I played 20 minutes of it and haven't gone back. I should probably push myself, but I haven't felt compelled. :sad:

Here's the new story trailer for the RE 2 Remake

I appreciate that they brought back the series' trademark bad voice acting with Leon, but with a modern twist! He sounds ridiculous, and Ada looks ridiculous.


Anyway, while I'm here, you can sign me up for Metroid Prime 4 because I finally beat Super Metroid the other night! It only took me 8 hours and 25 years. :badbone:

If I recall the benefit was you could have entire swaths of authentic game scores that barely left a footprint (which mattered more then), but they could also work a little strangely and didn't really translate to other playback  mediums like your average sound file.

Franz is probably talking about SPCs.


Sounds familiar. Definitely wasn't MIDI, haha.

Ah yeah, makes sense. They didn't weigh much. Man, this doesn't make me feel any younger. :flora:

Still with the wrestling promos, and that combined with the "adult fantasy" designation makes it sound like embossed hardcover pornography. :ganishka: :farnese:

It's "the champion of adult fantasy!" :guts:

*groan*

Okay, I'm being too cynical already, but what I was looking for in that copy was anything about the print quality, text, or translation being upgraded, and so far they've said nada. Not a good sign because you'd think that would be something they'd want to mention if they bothered to do it.

Yeah...

I remember these, but I didn't like them because they didn't feel "real" enough as definitive "hard copies," which is kind of ridiculous in retrospect.

This I'm actually kind of interested in, though I dread the impact any typos or mistranslations would have, maybe I'll check the local Barnes & Noble.

THE BEHEMOTH OF MANGA "BERSERK" TO RECEIVE DELUXE EDITIONS AT DARK HORSE

Have you Got the Guts?


Kentaro Miura's Berserk has outraged, horrified, and delighted readers since 1989. Now, the champion of adult fantasy manga is presented in a handsome embossed hardcover edition
