Samus is awesome. Metroid is awesome. This OP is not.
This is the place to discuss how awesome Metroid is. While there isn't any news about a new game in the series, Nintendo has finally made the "well, DUH" move to allow Metroid Prime Trilogy to be purchased as a downloadable title from the Nintendo eShop. It's currently on sale for $9.99 through 2/5 at 8:59 a.m. PT. Go save about $40 and pick it up.
The series turns 30 next year. If Nintendo has nothing up their sleeve for that anniversary, well ... we can all talk about how stupid that is right here.
