  1. Today in Indie Comics: Zac Gorman’s Magical Game Time

    We Can Be Heroes

    Ever wonder what's going through the mind of your favorite video game characters once the console is off? Curious how the heroes you love spend their downtime between boss battles? Zac Gorman's gorgeous animated webcomic series Magical Game Time explores exactly those thoughts. The art's use of texture and muted colors create a perfect isolated and self-reflective feel to the comic, which explores the inner lives of some of gamedom's most iconic heroes as well as sharing the artist's own musings on the way that video games, their stories, and their characters affect the lives of the players.

  2. This Papercraft Samus Aran is Almost Seven Feet Tall

    If you've been waiting all your life to see a 6'10 papercraft Samus Aran, today is the day your dreams come true and you'll have to find some new dreams. Flickr user IAmThatOneGuy made this awesome, tall Samus figure out of nothing but paper and glue. He used the Samus model from Metroid Prime 2, of the stellar Metroid Prime trilogy. Unfortunately, rolling this Samus into a ball would pretty much be irreparable. Head on past the break for some more pictures of this gargantuan paper Samus.

  3. Life-Size Metroid's Samus Aran Made From Various Nintendo Cartridges

    Originally commissioned for used games retailer JJGames, Metroid's Samus Aran has been recreated using Nintendo cartridges from a few of their older systems, including the Game Boy, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, and the Nintendo 64. The seller is claiming the piece is life-size, and measures Samus in at around 5 feet 8 inches, accounting for her diagonal pose. If you act quickly, the piece can be yours via electronic bidding magic.

  4. Pixelated Metroid Cosplay is Way Better Than Sexy Metroid Cosplay

    Metroid's Samus Aran is a popular cosplay character, partly because Samus was the first iconic female video game character who wasn't a helpless princess, partly because Samus is awesome and you know it, and partly because pretty girls like to dress up as various incarnations of Samus -- one of which happens to be Samus in a blue leotard with long blond hair -- and this is the Internet. Dan Cattell and Krystal Belcher, however, took the cosplay in a different direction. Krystal dressed up as the pixelated Samus of old when she made her bones in a big suit of armor rather than a leotard (not counting a certain famous cheat code), and when her gender didn't matter, which is what made it matter.

    Along with Krystal as the retro Samus, Cattell whipped up and hopped into a pixelated Chozo, the iconic keepers of Samus' suit and weapon upgrades. The cosplay is featured in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, a magazine you may be surprised to hear is still around.

  5. (Mostly) Live Action Ad for Metroid: Other M

    In an unusual move for them these days, Nintendo has created a mostly live action ad for the imminent release of Metroid: Other M, the latest game to feature the armor plated, ball-morphing bounty hunter Samus Aran. It's pretty, has a brooding voice over, and features a lot of slow motion... To be honest, if everybody's just going to take the Halo 3: ODST advertising route, we're perfectly okay with that. Video below:
