Episode 33 - Acceptable to Above Acceptable - Metroid Fusion

When Adam decided who would podcast, he chose incorrectly,

Welcome to NOCLIP and this week we're talking about Metroid Fusion, the first GBA game in the series and one that attempted to add an explicit narrative with dialogue and also dial back the difficulty present in previous Metroid games. The result is a game that feels very unlike its predecessors, but still manages to nail a tone and be enjoyable to play. We talk about claustrophobic level design, conveyance of tone, and a non-threatening bouncy stalk man.

Thanks for listening to the podcast this week and join us again in two weeks when we talk about Bloodborne!
