More Metroid

09Oct07

It seems like some people are actually seeing this blog – it appears that I’ve had about five visitors! One poor soul came by looking for some tips on “how to beat Metroid”.

As you may recall, my very first blog post was a declaration of my own frustration with the seemingly impossible NES game, and how I construed this as an apt metaphor for the challenges of my own life.

I am pleased to announce that I have indeed beaten Metroid since then. But I did cheat a little by looking at a map on Game FAQS do figure out where the fudge I was supposed to go. So for the young chap searching for answers on this blog site, my advice to you is go to gamefaqs.com, type in the word “Metroid” in the search box, and select the game Metroid from the list of results. And you’re welcome.

Now for some fun Metroid related links:

Metroid Cubed

In some ways a lot less enjoyable than the original, but still cool, you know in like the geek sense of the word.

Metroid Metal

Metroid songs played in the style of metal. And speaking of Metroid song covers…

THIS is really flippin’ dope. A sort of jazz piano interpretation of a few of the game’s themes, but played with the precision and musical depth of someone so incredibly good its almost hard to believe he spends his time recording video game music.

I’m not done talking about Metroid, but that’s it for now.

  1. Thanks for the plug of Shnabubula’s Metroid mix “Sugar, Water, Purple”, we appreciate it.

    Hmmm… “played with the precision and musical depth of someone so incredibly good its almost hard to believe he spends his time recording video game music.”

    Haha! We’ve got a ton of artists like that at OverClocked ReMix. But admittedly none quite like Shna. His ReMix, along with many of our others, illustrate part of what OC ReMix aims to do, i.e. showcase artists that make listeners rethink what video game music is capable of. Glad to read it’s working. Thanks for the plug!

    And keep pimping Stemage and Metroid Metal; Grant’s mixes do a great job adding even more power and energy to the Metroid series’ music!
