The Starlight Megaphone is pleased to present Metroid Returns: a playthrough of Metroid Dread.
With the seventh century milestone, the Starlight Megaphone turns out in force, with Caspius, SiliconNooB, Imitanis, Mel, Sebastian, and Brock on the panel to discuss the sundry thoughts and vapid imaginings of the site's notorious co-founder, Ethos.
As the Metroid Dread playthrough spins into gear, Sebastian joins Caspius in person, and SiliconNooB connects via Australian Semaphor, to report on the latest news about Nintendo's upcoming--and astronomically overpriced--Switch Online Expansion Pass.
With the launch of the site's new playthrough--Metroid Dread--Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis discuss Samus Aran's future and the evident success of the latest iteration in the series, before taking a look at the new Stranger of Paradise demo.
With the Tokyo Games Show in progress, Square Enix responds to the well-deserved mockery of the original, Chaos-laden Stranger of Paradise demo by abolishing any pretence of translation accuracy in the new, Chaos-laden Stranger of Paradise demo.
The latest Nintendo Direct brings both expected news (Triangle Strategy's 2022 release date) and unexpected surprises (the immediate availability of the Castlevania Advance Collection), much to the delight of SiliconNooB and Caspius alike.
Caspius and SiliconNooB dig into the GeForce NOW hack and leak of potential in-development titles, including remasters and releases of Final Fantasy Tactics and Chrono Cross, but also the deeply worrying possibility of a Final Fantasy IX Remake.
Caspius, Imitanis, and SiliconNooB report that Brock has become the second participant to earn a GOLD STAR in Skyward Sword, with Winter, LC11, and SiliconNooB bringing up the rear, whilst Imitanis dreams of a process-simulating, Link-focused, idle game.
Caspius and SiliconNooB chart Brock's Skyward Sword progress, preview the Tokyo Game Show, and examine what qualities make a game 'the best': technical skill, singularity of vision, quantity of content, or freedom from a theoretical Anxiety of Influence.
Caspius and SiliconNooB catch up on the Skyward Sword playthrough, announce the release date of the next Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, chart the downfall of Blizzard, and prepare for next week's discussion by asking what makes for a truly legendary game.
Caspius and SiliconNooB track the imminent release of the Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster, celebrate Nintendo's complete domination of the Japanese sale charts, and then weigh in on selected staff and reader choices for the Worst Game in the World.
