Super Metroid. This weekend I am going to be playing Super Metroid. Why? Because why the hell not. Also because I expect my house to be completely swamped with friends and family this weekend and in the chaos I will most likely have to surrender my television.
So for the first time since I bought it, I think I will be using my Wii U in one of the ways it was intended to be used: everyone else will be watching TV and I’ll be huddled in the corner, all anti-social, mad at the world and playing Super Metroid on the Wii U controller.
In a way I’m quite excited. These days I’ve found myself playing a lot of games I haven’t enjoyed — BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider. Well Tomb Raider was alright in parts, but I really didn’t enjoy BioShock Infinite. After really loving Luigi’s Mansion 2 I’m keen to stay on a roll and play games that actually remind me of the reasons why I actually love games. Super Metroid falls into this category.
What are you all planning to play this weekend?
