The Metroid: the Other Other M
For those of you who haven't played the original metroid - it was totally rad. gameplay, art, and music were all really good compared to what was out at the time. i had never seen anything like it when i was a wee lad.
i pay tribute to metroid, it seems, ever year or so. this is the current piece. it's a repaint of the major scenes in the game. it doesn't go down JUST LIKE THAT, but well, hey, artistic license and whatnot - plus it's a color wheel.
i don't wanna hear any complaining that it's not accurate or it doesn't follow the direction of metroid cause, for f_ck's sake, i don't even think Samus was really supposed to be a girl in the first place. there would be fair argument that from one game to the next there's bad continuity.
you guys (girls) played the Other M? It's not bueno. Sorry. i've read better stories off of a bazooka joe wrapper and seen cooler characters on cereal boxes. eh - metroid (and super metroid AND prime) are still hot to death. And I have nothing but love for the franchise. But ya, if I was in charge of a reboot, I'd make it cartoony and as colorful as hell and Samus wouldn't say a damn word.
enjoy the art.
be seeing you,
