Metroid Prime pops up on so many "best" lists. Best GameCube games. Best Metroidvanias. Best Nintendo games. Best games ever made. But it's not on my "best games I've ever played list", because I've never played it. Until this past week. (And for the record, yeah, it's probably on my best games list now).
I tried it a little back when it came out, but I was new to the Metroid series, and the genre, and didn't quite get what it was throwing down. Now that I know what's up, I get why this is still one of the highest scored games on Metacritic and so many people love it. Metroid Prime is fucking sick. Is it my new favourite Metroid game?? hmmmmm....listen and find out.
My guest this week is one of the generous moos that made a $1,000 donation to my Extra Life stream last year, Blaine The Hoagie Man. He was stoked to have a chance to talk Prime, and now that I've played it, I get why. This should be fun.
And before we fight Metroids, I rip through another edition of the Infamous Intro!
This week, we revisit the retro game emulation discussion. What do I think of the latest Mario Kart 8 tracks? And where should Fallout 5 take place?
Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Gamecube classics: Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, and StarFox Adventure.
