Axiom Verge is the classic Metroid that's long been absent. While I'm pleased there's a bit of a plot and narration, those also swiftly dissolve the oppressive loneliness inherent in it's predecessor. That aside, it seems worthy of the title "spiritual successor".
Now just do that with Blaster Master and I'll be positively giddy.
dr_tectonic - Did they just say she's been (somewhere) for months?? What did she eat? What did she drink? Shelter? Hello?
Me - Did he just offer her a controller to join in a Halo match? You can't just drop in on those locally! Is he using the A button to shoot??
Both of us- DO YOUR RESEARCH! GAH!!
