The fall quarter at RIT is finally over, and not a day too soon. With all the great games just released it will be difficult as it is to find the time necessary to wallow in all the gaming goodness that is available now for every device imaginable. Not the least of which is the highly anticipated sequel to my favorite game of all-time: Metroid Prime.
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes so far is everything that Prime was times 2. The worlds are expansive, the boss fights epic, and the particle effects sublime. Gorgeousness squared.
I had a heck of a time with the enormous Amorbis. The 3-headed creature of Dark Aether's Agon Wastes temple seemed impossible at first. But just as with any boss of exceptional design, finding the creature's vulnerable spot may prove elusive, but it's there. Then when you finally beat it, oh how sweet it is. Thank you Retro Studios for another fine Metroid experience (so far). The official Web site ain't bad either. Click.
