Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Super Metroid and Metroid Prime will always be the pinnacle of the series.
I do enjoy all the other games in the franchise for various reasons, all to varying degrees on the scale o' fun. I just love the Metroid franchise. I still want to finally grab Pinball for my DS just for the fun of it, and Federation Force, while not being the game I was hoping for, looks pretty fun and I'm interested in trying it.
What they did to Barbara in The Killing Joke wasn't great. What it inadvertently did though was give the best portrayal of a strong independent handicapped character in comics. Barbara as Oracle was one of the best and most important characters in the DC universe. Losing Barbara as Oracle was one of the worst things about the new 52 reboot. It removed an important role model for the handicapped community.
