So I finally got around to playing Super Metroid this summer. I was afraid after years of hype this game would disappoint in some way, but it's totally enjoyable and stands the test of time.

It actually allows you to think for yourself, encourages exploration and challenges you at every turn. All you have is your brain and controller and if you died and forgot to save, it's your own damn fault.

Games are too easy these days.

P.S: I took some liberties on the design. ;)

This takes me right back to the beginning of the game.  I saw this first on Metroid HQ's Facebook page, then I had to Fave it and share it on Tumblr.  Very well done.

Thanks for the love! There's something about the mood when you first land on Zebes.

Would it be alright if I used this picture as a background picture for one of 10 songs featured in an upcoming video of mine on YouTube, called So Cold 10 Metroid Remixes Video III? I will definitely make sure to credit you for your work. And, if you want to look me up on YouTube before the video is finished, search "Jac0Frost0" and "s0c01da116utz31dav1d" on YouTube.


Oh. P.S.: I'll send you a link when I'm done.
