Nintendo Power March 2010 Contributions

The March 2010 issue of Nintendo Power is in, and I have two articles in the Community section that turned out rather nicely. The first is a full-page feature on Dave Sterling, who crafted a close-to-scale NES console, two controllers, a Tetris cartridge, and a small TV all out of LEGO blocks. His work with little plastic blocks is quite impressive. The second is on Deadcraft‘s freakin’ adorable little Nintendo hero amigurumi dolls. So cute. Coming up next, I have two reviews and two more hefty community pieces running in the April 2010 issue that should be out next month. Cheers!

Review: Shadow Complex

ShadowComplex_Screen17-620x

“It’s almost uncanny how easily a romantic hike into the rocky mountain wilderness with your new girlfriend can turn into an explosive, power suit-fueled rumble through the secret underground complex of militaristic revolutionaries on the verge of launching a massive coup against the US government. Yes, appearances can be deceiving. As fresh as Shadow Complex looks and feels on the surface, it’s really a cleverly disguised homage to the SNES heydays of a certain armor-clad bounty huntress. We most heartily approve.”

Preview: Metroid: Other M

“Those who bow down before the altar of Samus Aran may have been enthusiastic about recent news of the Metroid Prime trilogy’s upcoming three-in-one re-release on the Wii with full motion controls implemented across the board. However, word from the E3 camp this week about a new Metroid game in the works for Nintendo’s console – one that’s being made by the boob and blood-spray-loving staff at Team Ninja, no less – is raising more than a few eyebrows and has us salivating for Samus’ next interstellar adventure set to launch in 2010.”
