Hello gang! I hope you are all doing well in every way. Thought I’d stop by and share another quick review that you can see above. I’ve put together my final thoughts on Metroid Dread and honestly I’m very proud of how this Tiktok came about. Hopefully you enjoy it!

As usual, you can read the script for this review below, but I have one more thing to say before I leave you with that. I know you are all waiting for a status update on the GoNintendo overhaul, and I feel like I can share at least some details on the progress made so far.

T27Duck, Cort and I have had weekly meetings about the renovation for over a month now. Before that there was work, but now we’ve got to a point where we have to meet once a week to answer questions, discuss features, and more. These meetings last several hours and include screen sharing and voice chat. This may not seem like that important to most of you, but it honestly makes me feel special. This is without a doubt the most collaborative process there has been in the GoNintendo overhaul.

Both T27Duck and Cort have made incredible strides so far. Out of respect for them, I will not share details of their work. I want to say that their efforts cover every area of ​​the site and some of the content is working just fine in its current state. I can’t fully explain how impressive it is to see what these guys do. They really know their stuff, and our meetings help steer them in a direction that we believe will make all readers happy.

Again, to reiterate this point, this is a GREAT makeover for GoNintendo in every way. It’s a complete relaunch from top to bottom. There are many things to do and see, and it all takes time. I wish I had a set date for you of when things would be back in action, but I don’t have one to say. I want things to go as well as you, trust me.

Not working on GoNintendo feels incredibly weird. It’s like I’m an alien inhabiting my body. Obviously this has to do with the things I’ve been through that pulled me away from normal life in the first place, but being off the GN schedule for so long has affected me in ways I never could have imagined. I want to be back and I want to work harder than ever. Just typing about it now pulls me together a little. I miss you soooooo much.

If I need to share news on a launch date, I promise I’ll get over here right away and tell you. Until that point, you just have to hold on … and I know this sucks 100%. That said, I absolutely guarantee the wait will be worth it. Everyone is working hard to make sure of this, and I couldn’t be more proud of what T27Duck and Cort have achieved.

That’s it for the status update. I should be back with someone else sooner rather than later. Until then, stay safe and sound.

Metroid Dread Review script below.

For a number of years, some Metroid fans didn’t feel particularly good about the franchise. Metroid Other M received quite a bit of backlash for characterizing Samus and is a divisive entry to this day. It was followed by Metroid Prime: Federation Force, a spin-off that some saw as the wrong place at the wrong time. The negative vibe about Metroid as a series finally began to clear when Metroid: Samus Returns hit the 3DS in 2017, allowing players a return to form. MercurySteam, the developer of this title, followed up the 3DS remake with Metroid Dread, their first leap to a brand new Metroid title. Where Metroid: Samus Returns gave fans great hope for the future, Metroid Dread shows us that Samus is definitely back and in many ways better than ever.

One of the most striking achievements of Metroid Dread is the realization of Samus. For decades, Metroid has characterized Samus as the strong, quiet type. A stoic bounty hunter who gets his job done and in style. In Metroid Dread we see these aspects of Samus explored to a much greater extent. Previous Metroid titles gave us insight into Samus’ personality, but Metroid Dread shows who she is with everything it does. Samus remains seriously formidable during the cutscenes, but now we see her personality permeate into everything from basic moves to major boss fights.

In Metroid Dread, Samus moves with incredible confidence. She is much faster and nimble than we’ve ever seen her before. All of their movements have an incredible fluidity that makes the gameplay much more enjoyable from moment to moment. The way Samus leaps through environments, countering attacks, freely aiming at enemies and so much more brings them to life. Instead of being shown or told how impressive Samus is, we can control it firsthand. It’s pretty rare that we see a game that not only feels so good, but also manages to embody who a character really is through its movements.

We can pick up all of this through what is perhaps the most densely packed Metroid adventure of all time. What initially looks like a smaller map is slowly turning out to be packed with an insane amount of rough edges to explore. You’ll be jumping back and forth between multiple regions hunting power-ups to unlock new areas in previous sectors. There’s an impressive amount to do and see, many of which require a keen eye to open up. In true Metroid fashion, a new ability or the path ahead of you may seem unreachable, but blowing up a cleverly placed enemy or a suspicious wall can widen the path ahead of you. You may get stuck a few times at the beginning, but you will no doubt learn to be mindful of your surroundings, which makes progressing as you progress through the game feel extremely rewarding.

The icing on the cake of this Metroid cake is the boss fights, which are arguably the best of the series. While some familiar faces are returning in great shape, the new EMMI encounters are the star of the show. Instead of focusing on a single room, EMMI encounters span multiple sections of a map, and for most of the confrontations, your only option is to run. With each EMMI having a unique moveset and location, no two encounters are alike, and each will get your pulse pounding and blood pumping.

Metroid Dread is exactly what the franchise needed. The way it handles classic Metroid style gameplay while adding tons of innovations is really impressive. Most importantly, it completely repairs the damage that Samus’ character took. Metroid Dread is the game Samus deserves, and the fans of the AAA experience have been shouting for years.
