It's been thirty-five years since Nintendo released the original Metroid, and since then the franchise has gone to sport sequels, interquels, remakes, and spin-offs. That's a lot of territory for what essentially boils down to four (soon to be five) games that make up the central plot of the series. On this week's podcast, we're celebrating Metroid's big anniversary with a look back at the games, how they fit together, which ones we played over the years, and what's coming up next. Join us for an hour of discussion.
