If you haven’t played Super Metroid, you have a problem. Quite a big one, but it’s pretty easy to deal with.

Super Metroid came out in 1994, so this is a little late as well. It was good, even considering the number of brilliant games that came out on the SNES. Of course, due to the way history works, Super Metroid will never be thought of in the same way as Super Mario World, Link to the Past or Donkey Kong Country, because of the simple fact that Nintendo have never bothered publicising the Metroid series, resulting in less than half a million sales in North America. Which is a shame.

Written by Paddy:

I thought that with JT’s metal minute, it was about time we branched into music a bit, so, here goes!

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m an avid Avenged fan. Not on the verge of ‘Oh My God I’ll never listen to anything else again!’, unlike those on YouTube with profile names like *A7XzackyA7X*:

Alrighty, given the content of the latest podcast including both DRM AND Zombies, I decided that I should let everyone here into a hidden gem of a series. De-Rez, hosted by ‘Yahtzee’s b***h’ www.escapistmagazine.com. It’s a bunch of Irish lads whose dark humour appeals to me greatly. This particular video involves a parody of “The Lost Tape: Andy’s Terrifying Last Days Revealed”, an add-on on the 2004 re-make of Dawn of the Dead.

These guys are hilarious, it comes with my seal of approval!

De-Rez – Click here, fools!
