Metroid's 25 Birthday

The Metroid series celebrates its 25th birthday this year and while not the most high profile series in Nintendo's repertoire it does feature some of the most genre defining gameplay elements and plot twists (Super Metroid is one of my favorite games of all time) in gaming history.

The good folks over at All Your History have compiled a very comprehensive history of the series. Covering all the Metroid games, it covers both the highs and lows of Samus Aran's adventures in saving the universe. Happy 25th Metroid, hopefully with more games to come!

Caboose Visits the Halo Reach Campaign

I always wondered if Rooster Teeth should have done a short featuring the ODST characters but this is close enough. Its been a long time since Red versus Blue made reference to the campaign of a Halo game (outside of the special previews) and the results are pretty funny.

Star Fox: Space Oddity

Making its way around the internet is Brentalfloss's (of what happened if game X's song had lyrics) newest video for Star Fox. Featuring a combination of hand puppets, Star Fox 64 memes and the stylings of Space Oddity, its an interesting look at the inner workings at the Star Fox team... or just a fun video :P
