This game sucks. (Well, the title character does.)

My most recent video review for the NES classic I love to hate on, Metroid.

At some point I think I’m going to need to implement these videos to my website proper – just as soon as I figure out a good way to do so. I don’t want to just slap them on and say, “hey, I do videos now!”.

    Now that I know you’re doing one, I probably will.

    As for your first point, that’s why I mentioned the fact at the start of the review that Metroid has never been high on my list of NES games even when it was a contemporary title. It just didn’t tickle my fancy.

    I agree–this game has merit in a foundational context, but I’ve tried to play it at least three times and dropped it each time. It’s just not a very fun game.

    And I’ve been meaning to ask you, what do you use to make your reviews? I’ve tried capturing my screen with simple programs, but none of them seem to capture any sound. Did you buy any software?

    To capture the video, I use a WinTV HVR-950 capture stick. Of course, that’s only part of the set-up, as there’s a fair amount of lag – a lag that gets progressively longer as I record. So I have to patch the Wii into my VCR, which gives me the co-ax signal I need to play the game on my TV, plus a composite outlet that I feed into the computer.

    As for editing software, I use Corel VideoStudio 12.
