Weekly Digital Roundup: “y cant metroid crawl?”

"If this Weekly Digital Roundup will teach you anything, it’s that some people suck at Super Metroid.

Okay, that was a little too harsh, I apologize. In actuality, it’s quite fascinating to see some people’s first time with Super Metroid, which is on the Wii U Virtual Console for the ridiculously amazing price of $0.30. Even if some of those Miiverse posts are potential trolls, it does show us how many gamers of today are spoiled by the hand-holding tutorials of today’s games. Whatever happened to overcoming obstacles via your own exploration of a game’s mechanics?

But I digress. Nintendo’s eShop has seen its fair share of action this week, with Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and Super Mario Bros. 2 now available for $8 a pop (or $1.50 and $1 respectively if you already own the Wii versions). The 3DS now has Mega Man 5 and Harvest Moon (GBC) on the Virtual Console."

- Patrick Kulikowski (3DS, DUST 514, manhunt, Mega Man 5, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Metroid, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

why would you want samus to crawl (when she can instead switch to ball mode which is way cooler)?
