This week, we're gonna right two wrongs with one stone, and show both the GBA and the Metroid franchise some much overdue love on the show. It's all about the (outstanding) Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion this week!
I played this thing for the first time recently, at the suggestion of my guest Daniel, and I get the hype now. It's shorter than you'd expect, and quite linear - especially for a Metroid title - but damned if they didn't pack everything they had into that short line of a game. I'm not ready to say this is my favourite GBA game of all-time, but it's a contender without a shadow of a doubt.
I gotta play more GBA and more Metroid. If only Nintendo had a handheld console that could address both of those things at once...
And of course, before we talk Metroid Fusion, it's the Remember The Game Infamous Intro!
This week, I suck the dick of both Ori games extensively. We talk about a possible 'Resident Evil Ranking' episode of Expansion Pass, and I answer the question "who's your favourite wrestler of all-time?"
Plus, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This time, it's the GBA edition, featuring Metroid Fusion, Advance Wars, and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap!
