Thursday, 28 August 2008 at 10:41 GMT

Next up for Brawl coverage are two new sections: Ridley Bosses Guide and Stages Overview. That just about wraps things up for Smash Bros. Metroid content, just as soon as I can hunt down all those remaining elusive trophies and stickers in the game we'll have new galleries for each.

SSBB Trophies and Extras

Still hunting for Metroid trophies and other paraphernalia in Super Smash Bros. Brawl? The game has plenty of goodies to find from Samus' world, so drop by the new Trophies and Extras page to see what remains to be found in your game. I've also updated the Screenshots page with a mass of images collected from the Smash Bros. DOJO!! website - that site is incredibly deep!

72 Hour Metroid Marathon

Head to TheSpeedGamers for details of an amazing feat: these fellas will be playing through every Metroid title from start-to-finish (except Pinball) in around 72 hours! TheSpeedGamers often hold these fundraiser events for a good cause, so be sure to check out the live stream starting on August 15th at 6pm Central (which in GMT terms is around midnight that day). There's a host of prizes on offer during the event as well - drop by for all the details.

Soundtracks, manuals and artwork

Tuesday, 12 August 2008 at 08:53 GMT

Here comes a hefty media update! Drop by the new music pages for both Metroid II and Metroid Fusion for a pair of newly added Metroid soundtrack goodness. I've also given the Metroid: Zero Mission soundtrack an overhaul to include the extra tracks not included among the in-game sound test mode. Today's update also continues the instruction manual scanning project with both Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission's manuals now available. Finally, I've added a few pieces to Zero Mission's new Artwork and Renders page. Enjoy!
