Super Metroid

Super Metroid is the third installment in the Metroid series of 2D adventure-platformer shooters and is on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The events of the game follow the events of the previous two. The game will explain it at that start, but basically the last Metroid is in captivity being researched by scientist when you, the bounty hunter Samus Aran, receive a distress call from the research station to find the Metroid stolen.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is a platforming tournament fighter for, you guessed it, the Nintendo 3DS. This is the fourth game in the series so for this review I’m assuming you’ve either read my previous Smash Bros. reviews or know about those games already yourself. I wasn’t sure how much of this game to play before I could consider it enough to base a review on, so I decided to complete all of the challenges and get all of the trophies before calling it quits. So with about 64 hours of time in battles and 150 some hours of total gameplay, I think I’ve got a decent amount of experience to back up my opinions.
