I picked these names randomly. If you don’t want to do it, it’s fine :)
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!



Prime 4 at last, baby! It's interesting that Prime 4 is not being developed by Retro apparently, but I have high hopes that the new "talented" team will do a good job. I'm just hyped that it's actually happening. No release date or anything, it was literally just a teaser that it is in development for the Nintendo Switch.

The 3DS game looks great, too! I'll have to get a 3DS for it. I just find it funny how Nintendo had Another Metroid 2 Remake (AM2R) shut down, only to reveal that they were making a Metroid 2 Remake as well. lol Still, I like the new melee counter system, and the new Aeon (?) Ability system. Samus has a friggin' lightning shield now. Just... wut? Pretty interesting stuff. Also, new Amiibo! There's one for Samus, and one for a Metroid (which is also squishy!). The visuals look like they could use some polish, though. There is also a special addition of the game that includes a CD containing the game's soundtrack, as well as tracks from other games in the series, too, I believe. The game comes out in September!
Here is some extensive gameplay from the Nintendo Treehouse Event.


And all of this combined with the Prime 3 Samus Figma figure coming out later this year... It really is a good year to be a Metroid fan! :D

Sooo... why not?

I have to:
1. Name 10 of my favorite characters from 10 different fandoms.
2.
Tag 10 people.

1.

Batman (Self Explanatory)


It's Batman. Does this really need explaining?

2.

Samus Aran (Metroid)


Samus... I just love her. She's amazing. Powerful but compassionate. Strong willed, beautiful, and has amazing armor too. I could go on and on. On top of that, Metroid is my favorite game series.

3.

Optimus Prime (Transformers)


Optimus is courageous, selfless, inspiring, and just flat out awesome. I also love his sense of humor in the G1 show. What more needs to be said about him? A true hero!

4.

Diddy and Dixie Kong (Donkey Kong Country)


Diddy and Dixie are two characters I grew up with during my childhood. The universe of Donkey Kong Country, and especially these two, are endearing to me. I have them both tied because, like the actual story shows, they are inseparable, and I don't like either more than the other. I love them both!

5.

Needles Kane/Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)


Naturally, this guy had to be on my list. Twisted Metal was also part of my childhood on the PS1, and of course, Sweet Tooth is my favorite. Although I ironically liked playing as Minion more as a kid because... well, unstoppable tank. Anyway, this guy's twisted sense of humor, cunning, and tenacity, coupled with how he's such a troll character on PlayStation All-Stars is both funny and awesome to me. Lets face it: he's one epic clown. lol

6.

Cobra Commander (G.I. Joe)


Cobra Commander is, without a doubt, my favorite villain ever. The comic book versions of him, specifically. He originated in the comics, and is a far cry from the sillier version from the Sunbow cartoon. In the comics, he is an excellent strategist, has incredible charisma, and is actually no stranger to fighting if he has to. He truly lives up to the title of "most dangerous man alive."

7.

Ghost Rider (Marvel Comics)


Ghost Rider is my favorite Marvel character. I think he's a unique superhero since he's apparently a heavenly weapon, not simply a demonic entity like the movies only seem cover (the devil's bounty hunter? No.). He looks awesome, has amazing powers, and has a sweet ride.

8.

Hinata Uzumaki/Hyuga (Naruto)


Hinata is just too cute! I admire her courage and desire to better herself despite not being the strongest. Who she is, her selflessness, and willingness to do whatever it takes to help is what makes her strong.

9.

Spyro and Cynder (The Legend of Spyro)


Another pairing. I couldn't help it. I love how these two develop throughout the course of the trilogy, and that includes how their personal connection develops. I love Spyro's selflessness and courage, and how Cynder is sassy but compassionate deep down. These two are incredibly heroic and save the whole world at the end of the trilogy. The Legend of Spyro trilogy just has a great world and a great story.

10.

Godzilla (Once again, self explanatory)


It's Godzilla. What else is there to say about him? He's just epic. I especially love the 2014 version of him. Very faithful to the old movies whilst still being his own beast.

Alright, it's tag time. Nobody has to do this if they don't want to.

So apparently, around 2009, Archie Comics actually pitched a comic book idea to Nintendo for Metroid! Had they gotten the permission, we would probably have official Metroid comics in our hands today. As someone who has read a lot of Archie's "Sonic the Hedgehog" series and has even looked at some of the "Mega Man" comics, this would have been awesome considering how much the Archie comics delve into the universe more and explore more ideas. But unfortunately, Nintendo (of course) turned the idea down. And what a shame, too, because I would have LOVED to see this, and I know Metroid fans would have appreciated these comics, too! Not to mention the comics could have brought in new fans as well, giving the series more of the exposure it rightfully deserves.

It frustrates me to no end that Nintendo seems unwilling to do anything with Metroid, and while we are getting Federation Force, and I personally think it doesn't look like a bad game, it is still just a spinoff. Maybe one day we can see more Metroid in comic books or even animated series since Nintendo is currently investing in more anime for their games. Until then, here are a few screenshots from the Archie comics that never became a reality.

Well boys and girls, it's that time. Needles Kane is finally ready for play in Mugen!



I went for a fighting style that was crazy and over-the-top, but still brutal, like the character is known for being. He's intentionally a little cheap, but was purposely made that way for the pure fun of it. Overall, I feel I've really outdone myself compared to my first character, which was my own version of Samus. I couldn't have done it without all the support I received. So thanks everyone! You made this project a lot of fun to work on!

To download the character, either go to the video's page and check the description, or just click the link below! Details on how to install him (if you are not familiar) are in the video description.

Nintendo has offered people the chance to request a fighter that they'd like to see as a future DLC character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS with their official Fighter Ballot. Now while the chances of any character that gets a vote being added in isn't very big, it still never hurts to try. I'm asking you all, my friends, to pass this message on, and vote for two Metroid characters that myself and many others (including a support group I'm in, found here: smashboards.com/threads/enemy-…) want to see become playable fighters. These characters are Rundas (from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption), and Sylux (from Metroid Prime: Hunters)!
Please spread the word on Twitter with the images provided below, retweet the #VoteRundas and #VoteSylux hashtags you see, and course, vote for the characters yourselves!

Now of course, feel free to vote for characters you want to see as well. This is anyone's game, and we can vote for as many as you'd like. Good luck on having your character become playable!

Here are my images.

Hey everyone! Is it really 2015 already? Man, I've lost track of the time. lol It really is crazy how fast 2014 went by. I still remember 2013's Christmas and New Year's Eve like it was just a couple weeks ago. And here we are again, at the start of another year! I wish everyone the best, and I hope you are able to reach goals, or fulfill a New Year's Resolution, if you're the type that does that sort of thing. I will try my best to get out new bits of art when I can, and continue working on my Sweet Tooth character for Mugen where I can.

Best wishes, and Happy New Year (2015), everyone!

Hello everyone! *Phew* This year has sure flown by hasn't it? Well, we have a bright new road ahead I'm sure, and I wish everyone the best! I hope all of you get to spend time with family and friends alike, and share the joys of being with others on this holiday. I'll have more art and updates on my Sweet Tooth for Mugen project in times ahead, and I hope y'all look forward to them. I know this isn't much of a journal entry, but I thought I'd write it to at least check in with all my awesome friends and followers. ;)

With that, I bid you all a Happy Christmas, and may God bless all of you!

DarkScytherX's questions

-1. If I had a time machine, I would maybe visit medieval period, or perhaps check out what the future holds.
-2. Dream superpower? Well, it may not be a legitimate power, but I want powered mech armor. Like, now. lol
-3. Which animal do I find scariest? In basic scary animals, I'd say bears. I mean, I like them, they're actually awesome. But they can be freakin' monsters.
-4. Least favorite fictional character? There really aren't many fictional characters I don't like. Hmmm... maybe Quess from Char's Counterattack (that's a Gundam movie)?
-5. Which villain do I relate to? Well, since he's bad guy, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal. When it comes to games and stuff, I really do love blowing things up. lol
-6. Favorite fictional robot? HK-47 from Star Wars. Hilarious! I would say Optimus Prime, but he's technically a living being, and I would say the Gundam Alex, but Mobile Suits are more of glorified vehicles than they are robots.
-7. Favorite action movie? Tough one... I'm not sure if it's in the action film genre as much as others, but I'd say "The Dark Knight".
-8. Waffles, pancakes, or french toast? I like all three! But if I had to pick one, pancakes!
-9. If I could have an MLP villain's superpowers, which would I take? Well, I don't watch MLP, nor am I that familar with the chararacters outside of the main ones, so... how's 'bout I just name a villain I WOULD take powers from, speaking in general terms? Darkseid. Because dem Omega Beams.
-10. My absolute favorite character is Batman, but for extra credit, he's followed by Optimus Prime, Samus Aran, Diddy Kong, and Godzilla.

Now, time for my questions! :iconjokerplz:

-1. What is your favorite dessert?
-2. If you could be any superhero, who would you be?
-3. Your least favorite anime?
-4. What is your favorite game/game series?
-5. What is your favorite movie?
-6. What is your least favorite food?
-7. How many states (countries, continents, planets, or what have you) have you been to?
-8. Sausage or bacon?
-9. What kinds of drawings/art do you enjoy most?
-10. Who is your absolute favorite fictional character of all time?

Tagging time!

Hey there everyone! Hope your Christmas has been great. I wish all of you the best, and I really hope you were all able to spend some quality time with your families, and maybe even get some cool stuff too. ;) December is already coming to an end, and before you know it, it'll be 2014. Craziness! Not too long from now, and I'll finally be getting into college. Life in England is going well, and it was nice be able to speak to my brother over in the States again. As far as gifts go, my highlight was that I got a Wii U! So far this Christmas has been awesome, and I wish you all a merry one!

God bless, everyone!

~Varia out
Hey there everybody! Wanted to give y'all an update on what's been going on lately. I'm really enjoying life here in England, it's nice and peaceful, there's some beautiful sites, the air is fresh, people are friendly, and overall I'm loving it! Today marks my 20th birthday, which is taking my mind a while to process. lol So far I've had an awesome breakfast, watched a couple Doctor Who epsodes with my folks (getting ready for the 50th anniversary special!) and not too long from now I'll be having some cupcakes, and a nice dinner.

So, on the gaming side of my life, I recently picked up "Batman: Arkham Origins". Contrary to what some reviews may say, it is a fantastic game, and possibly my favorite of the Arkham series now. There's some cool new enemies, it's more challenging, combat is more refined, it has amazing music, and a great story. It's also has multiplayer for the first time, which can be pretty fun. However, the matchmaking isn't that great, and there's so far only one game mode. Hopefully they'll add more soon, and fix some of the issues.
Onto my Samus Aran for MUGEN, she's just about done. I need to make her level 3 Super attack, fix her throw, and then make some final additions and tweaks, and she'll be playable for the public!

I hope you all are having a fantastic day, and I'll hopefully make some more pictures for my dA page soon!
