Title: Metroid Saga Game Club
Post by: NWR_Neal on June 16, 2021, 11:06:11 AM

As we get ready for Metroid Dread in October, join us as we replay the previous Metroid games that lead up to Metroid 5.

When Metroid Dread was announced as the last entry in the Series Producer Yoshio Sakamoto's Metroid story, that raised an eyebrow or three around here. The Metroid series is turning 35 years old this year and the storyline started in the original game and continued across Metroid II, Super Metroid, and Metroid Fusion was going to actually get a conclusion. It's been 19 years since we last left Samus Aran after the events of Fusion. Now we'll find out what happened to her next.

As we prepare for that dreadful day on October 8, we're going to play through the four numbered Metroid games to get ourselves prepared and make it a little bit of a game club discussion. We have roughly four months left and we're ironing out a schedule in which a handful of NWR staffers will play through the games and then discuss them on the NWR Connectivity podcast. We'll have a podcast deep dive featuring die-hard fans and relative newcomers as well as a smattering of other features and content. You can join us on the NWR Discord channel to discuss each game in the series and even send in some feedback and commentary of your own. It'll be a Metroid we wait for the game in which Samus is hunted by a bunch of evil robots who can one-hit kill her.

This sounds like fun.  Zero Mission's my favorite of the series and a great place to start.

Hm, tempting. It's been a while since I've played some of these, but I'm already swamped for games, not sure I have time to replay stuff too...
