"A video game comic and blog that would have been awesome and relevant 10 years ago. Maybe." -Famous Website
If Samus found herself somewhere on Earth instead of Zebes, and perhaps around 1792, is this what we could expect to find as she roams the countryside looking to rid the land of evil? The term Metroidvania certainly lends itself to thinking about a mashup of two of the greatest 2D side-scrollers known to man, Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, so we figured that it might be a good idea to flesh out the encounter for all to see.
Also, for those curious about what Mother Brain is gurgling on about, one only has to look around this vicinity to find it. Oh, and if you bought the PSP version and are familiar with that rendition instead...well...let me just warn you that seeing the dubbing done properly may incite rage, so try to restrain yourself from any table flipping. I would advise against calling up Konami with death threats...take it from me, you don't want that kind of attention.
To elaborate more on my nerd rage for this change, just what the hell was Konami thinking when they did that?! If you have dialogue that is so memorable and lovingly embraced in the community, you DON'T change it. When I first heard the PSP version...I started to convulse and spasm...how could they butcher something so AWESOME. They should have taken cue from Squeenix who had the wherewithal to understand that...hey...that super corny line "You Spoony Bard" in FF4 beloved by tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people? We should probably keep that in the remake.
It feels like ages since I sat down and wrote a nice post. I've had a lot to say but just no time to sit down and write. Things have been hectic since last month, but it was really awesome to go to our first con and see people strolling by and laughing at some of our comics. I think the most priceless reaction we had was watching a woman enjoying this comic, then proceeded to read some of our darker entries, ending here. It was really funny to me to watch her whimsical delight turn into utter horror in less than 2 minutes time; the sheer look of horror wrought on her face was priceless. Good times.
Overall, it was surreal to actually see people's reactions live as they read the strips. Pie and I had a blast because we were able to get quite a few laughs and a few people even praising our shirt designs, wanting to wear them immediately after purchase which was awfully flattering. I also got to meet Dan Ciurczak of Vibe which was really cool since I'm lovin' his comic so far. I also spent time chatting with Dark Kenjie, who turned out to be a super cool dude. If you happen to be at AX this weekend, go check them out at the Artist Alley, tables B29 and B37 respectively.
Thanks for everyone who came by to see us at AM2; we are really looking forward to our next con appearance now! If you bought something from us at the con, send me an e-mail by clicking on my face so I can hook you up with the Outlaw Bunny wallpaper!
