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

SuperZambezi On January - 29 - 2015

It’s time for Metroid Prime… again! Back in September, we planned our third VGL around Metroid Prime, but because the game was a GameCube title and a rare Wii port, finding the title was not easy and we had to cancel for that month. Fortunately for us, the Metroid Prime Trilogy for Wii is being released on the Wii U eShop and it’s available right now! The trilogy pack contains Metroid Prime, as well as the two sequels! Outside the fact that the game is currently half off and is considered one of the greatest games of all time, there is no reason not to jump on this opportunity!!

You can get Metroid Prime Trilogy on the eShop for $9.99 (£8.99/€9.99). What are you waiting for? Go, go, go!! Our podcast episode on the game will be released on February 28!

 

 

So for those of you who don’t like to read:

  1. Buy Metroid Prime Trilogy from the Wii U eShop for 10 bucks.
  2. Play the first game in the trilogy, Metroid Prime.
  3. Leave questions in the comments for us to answer on the podcast, post your progress and discuss the game in the chatbox.
  4. Listen to our episode on Metroid Prime on February 28!

To help everyone stay engaged, we’re creating different groups that you can join as soon as you earn a certain achievement within the game. Just leave a comment stating where you belong and we’ll add you to the list! No point in lying, this is all for fun! We have four groups for this VGL:

          • SuperZambezi

            Next time, please read the article before commenting. Or at least make some effort to get a general idea about what the article is about.

      • SuperZambezi

        No words.

      • Mister Sushi

        Did you even read the article?

        • Mother4Ever

          I just got here and I didn’t see that, can you all just leave me alone (walks away and looks down)

          • Mister Sushi

            It’s okay, I’m not mad at you :)

          • Mother4Ever

            Sorry I really can’t take a joke but it always seems like you guys are, I wish you were back on skype sushi ;-;

  • gmanextreme9

    Ugh…. I beat this again two months ago. I guess I’ll try to go for a third run.

    • SuperZambezi

      Yeah, I feel bad for those that actually played last time. :( But hey, it’s an awesome game that’s worth replaying. :P

      • gmanextreme9

        I’d be all for playing any of the sequels though. Haven’t played those in a while.

        • SuperZambezi

          Good thing it’s the trilogy pack. :) Let me know if you’re doing another run and I’ll add you to the list!

  • https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCMrkBiPazmVOjRWWpL7fYpA Pikachu Trainer

    I would play it but I’m busy with other games right now. Sorry

    • SuperZambezi

      I’d recommend picking up the game at the lower price anyway. Three amazing games in one.

  • Mister Sushi

    I’m too poor lol I just bought the Hyrule Warriors DLC.

    • SuperZambezi

      Oh please. It’s 10 dollars. Three awesome games. Don’t miss this opportunity. :P

      • Mister Sushi

        I actually don’t have ten dollars T_T

        • Dark Boo

          I know the struggle LMFAO

  • Zain Hussain

    I just got the game right now!!

    • SuperZambezi

      Wooo! Is this your first time playing?

      • Zain Hussain

        Yeah. I’m really bad it. I’ve gotten lost already. It still is an amazing game though.
        !

        • Dark Boo

          Yeah its a lot of backtracking and such

  • Marioman01

    Why should I get the Metroid Prime Trilogy?

    • SuperZambezi

      You get three highly praised games for dirt cheap.

      • Marioman01

        True, but I meant gameplay.

  • Mister Sushi

    My mom agreed to getting it for me.
    Yay!
    Found out I had no space.
    Fuck my life.

    • SuperZambezi

      I’m sure you can delete something in there. Do you have any flash drives laying around?

      • Mister Sushi

        But I don’t want to delete anything T_T

  • Toblet

    So is playing Nintendo games outside Mario going to become a recurring theme now?

    • SuperZambezi

      Well, we’ve been a Nintendo podcast for quite some time now. :P VGL, probably yes. The point is to play something new and our community is (obviously) very into Mario already.

  • KINGZ

    Im gonna try and get this. (no promises yet though)

    • SuperZambezi

      Yay! Let us know if you do!

  • http://nextendo.wordpress.com/ EverydayLuma520

    Seems like a cool game. Not into Metriod but my friends are. I might get this.

    • SuperZambezi

      Last day for half off!

  • Marioman01

    I don’t know. Why should I get the trilogy?

    • SuperZambezi

      First person adventure. Lots of exploring. Lots of backstory through scanning. Interesting areas and enemies. Amazing atmosphere.

      And very cheap. 10 bucks for three amazing titles.

      • Marioman01

        You do make it sound fun. But I can’t get it because:
        1. It’s a new series for me and I don’t know how to play it.
        2. It’s now the 5th.

  • AbsolPowers

    I just got the game!!!

    • SuperZambezi

      Wooo!

  • Dark Boo

    Add me up there, got the game…

    • SuperZambezi

      Added.

  • SuperZambezi

    Let me know how far you guys are and I’ll update the list! Also, send in your questions for us to answer!

  • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Bowser498

    Despite I don’t have the game, am I the only one that’s gonna ask a question? Well, what was your most memorable moment from the game?

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/YoshiandDaisyrock77 ImpaDude

    list the games in order from worst to best. also, i didn’t end up getting the game (shame on me), but is this trilogy a good start for the metroid series? i do have other M, but I’m stuck on it (figures)

  • Dark Boo

    Beat the game!

  • Thecook’n’engineer

    Just started getting into this game this week, although I did purchase on the last day to get the deal. Amazing Value for $10. This will for sure tide me over until Splatoon releases. Anyway I’ve just now made it to Phendora Drifts North. Wasted a few hours in chozo ruins getting lost although I found some online maps for the game that are a lot more useful and detailed than the one in the game. My question is do you think they should make a MPT 4 for WiiU and how does the game compare to Other M? (if any of you have played that)

    • SuperZambezi

      Awesome! Glad I saw this before we started recording!
