April 2011 news

Of the future and other ruminations

Saturday, 2 April 2011 at 10:42 GMT

I thought that now would be a good time to inform our readers of the behind-the-scenes activities and the current state of the site. At the moment I'm still plowing on through the Metroid: Other M walkthrough, and just like its predecessors, this colossal task will unfortunately take some time to finish. So if you've been hanging out for it, please be patient!

As for the site overall, I've now come to a point where it's time to ponder what the future will bring. Ever since I started working on our Metroid Prime 2: Echoes coverage way back in early 2007, I've been steadily building up features for every game in the Metroid saga. Once the Other M walkthrough is done, I'll have finished the coverage I was originally planning to have for each game (eg. reviews, guides, maps, and music and imagery just to name a few).

It's been an incredible ride, but I have to honestly say that at this point I'm utterly exhausted from the last four years of work. So I apologize for the lack of updates that have been few and far between these days, but at this point I'll be taking some time off the site to recharge and finally finish the Other M walkthrough. I'll still continue to post any news of future developments in the series, but it may not be as frequent as it has been in the past (for the meantime). Rest assured that I won't be closing the site down or retiring completely, as our main purpose is to provide ongoing strategy guide support for Metroid fans, and good old Google stats tracking has shown that this is still working.

So please continue to enjoy the site while I take a breather! Oh, and be sure to check out Shinesparkers' latest interview with Thaís Jussim (aka Yuki, the well-known cosplayer of stunning Samus costumes). The Nintendo 3DS is out too!
