Wallpaper update and the Make-a-Metroid contest

Thursday, 7 January 2010 at 10:58 GMT

We've got a few updates for the wallpapers section today. Firstly, I've started adding widescreen 1680x1050 versions for bigger monitors (they actually look quite nice in the larger format, I can see why widescreen displays are so common now). We also have a few new iPhone-sized wallpapers courtesy of Nintendo Kid, with potentially more on the way.

If you've been following the MDb's Make-a-Metroid contest, be sure to drop by for the results. There's some fantastic entries on show, congratulations to the winners and the MDb for their inaugural contest!

New reviews and Metroid Prime Hunters maps

Friday, 1 January 2010 at 00:41 GMT

Happy new year! Let's start off 2010 with something new. Firstly, I've started getting back into writing some sorely overdue reviews, starting with Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission. I've also finalised the finishing touches on a set of Metroid Prime Hunters maps, so that ends all the cartography work for both the Prime and Classic series (yay!). I also found two missing tracks in our Hunters soundtrack (of course), so I've added them in (#58 - Arcterra Depths and #60 - VDO Speed Run). As always, just grab those two if you already have the rest. Have a great new year!
