A Nintendo podcast for all things Mario, Zelda, Wii U, 3DS, and more!

SuperZambezi On September - 24 - 2014

UPDATE: We are having scheduling issues at the moment so a delay in the episode is likely. We may have to cancel this VGL completely, but that will depend on the community. Have you been playing Metroid Prime this past month? Have you finished it? Are you interested in listening to an episode discussing the game? We’ll make a decision based on your answers so please let us know as soon as possible!

And if you have been playing, don’t forget to leave your questions for us to answer in the comments!


It’s time for our third Video Game Lodge! To briefly explain, the community will vote and play a game for the month of September. At the end of the month, The Lost Levels will release an in-depth analysis on the game. For this month, we will picked a game from the Metroid series!

Metroid Prime has been selected as our game for September! If you don’t own it already, you can find the game in it’s original form on the GameCube or through the Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii. You have until September 27 to play and submit questions before the podcast!

Please keep in mind, the point of the VGL is to play something new! We already had two Mario games for the VGL, both of which most have already played. We want you to get out of your gaming comfort zone, so if you are brand new to the series, awesome!

Use the chatbox below to see where others are at in the game, ask any questions, or just enjoy and share what the game has to offer. And of course, leave your questions for the episode in the comments below (I recommend finishing the game before asking questions!).

What Game Should the Community play for September?

    Please remember, the point of the VGL is to play something new! Please don’t look at the selection and automatically say you won’t play because you have never played the Metroid series – now would be a great time to start! You’ll be playing with others in the community who are also playing for the first time. Whether you end up loving it or hating it, at least give it a chance! We would love to read your thoughts before and after on the podcast.

    Plus, we already had two Mario games for VGL, time for something new.

  • RafalRib

    If i dont have the possibility can i play on a emulator???? :)

    • SuperZambezi

      That is not up to me, my friend. :P I say if you have the means, buy it.

      • RafalRib

        Yeah! Of course! :)

      • Mister Sushi

        You dont actually have to buy roms :P

    • Person McPerson

      Nice profile pic

  • Accj21

    Hopefully Metroid Prime gets picked so I have a reason to expand my small Gamecube game collection.

    • Accj21

      And so I can play the first FPS of my life.

  • gmanextreme9

    Metroid Prime FTW.

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    I vote Fusion.

  • Marioman01

    I can’t do this because I don’t play Metroid. For the October VGL, how about we vote on games from different franchises. Ideas: Klonoa, Tamagotchi: Party On, and Wind Waker HD.

    • SuperZambezi

      Don’t play Metroid? Perfect! That’s what this is all about – playing games or series we have never played before.

      • Marioman01

        I don’t know…I usually don’t like first-person shooters. But if Wind Waker can make me like Zelda, then I guess I could try a little bit of Metroid whenever I get the chance. But I don’t know if this will chance my opinion about Metroid.

        • SuperZambezi

          Metroid Prime is actually the only first person shooter in the list. Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion play more like the New Super Mario Bros. series for comparison. Doesn’t hurt to try!

        • gmanextreme9

          Metroid Prime is technically a First Person Adventure. It’s got puzzles, some first person action, and lots of collectibles and items to find. The others work the same just in 2D. I think you will enjoy them. :)

          • SuperZambezi

            I agree, First Person Adventure is a lot better of a term for Prime.

    I’ve never played Metroid before actually, and the only one I can get on short notice is Super Metroid from the e-Shop, so go Super Meteroid!

  • CuriousUser

    You don’t have Online Play in these games, but I’ll go with Super Metroid.

    • SuperZambezi

      Why do you want online play in these game? :P

  • Person McPerson

    GO Metroid Prime!

  • VooDu

    Hard choice this month. I’m going to go with Super Metroid to give me an incentive to beat it, as it’s been sitting on my Wii U for ages. Plus, I don’t think I’ll be able to get Metroid Fusion or Metroid Prime unless it’s on an emulator.

    • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

      Same here. Convience woo!

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

    I think this is a great chance to start playing Metroid, but aren’t the new ones FPS games? Although I hate FPS’S, I guess I’ll give it a try…..

  • SuperZambezi

    METROID PRIME!!! I’m going to start playing tonight, very excited!

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

    Prime it is then…. Ugh I hate FPS’S!

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

    Currently can’t get it now but if it releases on V.C. I’ll get it but it seems unlikely for GC games to be on V.C.

    • Accj21

      If you have an original Wii (not a Wii U), you can play it.

      • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

        Thankfully I didn’t trade in my Wii because I was addicted To Super Smash Bros. Melee and Kirby Air Ride. Now, I just need to find a store that STILL sells GB games. My local Gamestop stopped a week ago. :(

        • Accj21

          I am just going to get it online.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIq11jBi0t0zjrBN9i5DIPQ Kirbylover490

            I don’t use GC roms because they are so damn slow!!!

          • Accj21

            Roms? I meant I would buy it online, on Amazon.

  • gmanextreme9

    Time for me to explore Tallon IV again!! Super excited! Also playing it on the original GameCube!

  • Nix

    Whelp, it looks like I’m going to have to boot up Dolphin again and download the Metroid Prime ROM or ISO or whatever the GameCube one’s are called.

  • gmanextreme9

    I would definately watch a VGL on this game. I’m already at the final boss. (Not spoiling the boss for those not there yet)

  • Accj21

    Please still do the VGL! I really like it for an FPS.

  • Marioman01

    I forgot to play it. Oh well, I’ll just wait for a game that I can rent and might want to play.
