Video games make a return today because E3 is right around the corner. I’m looking forward to checking out some of the conferences next week and, hopefully, be surprised by some unexpected announcements. I don’t play as much as I used to in the past, but I still enjoy unwinding with some software escapades.
I chose another Nintendo franchise to twist this time around, namely Metroid. I enjoy the series, having played most of the titles in one way or another. I skipped the last installment on 3DS because of its multiplayer component but I had a blast with the Wii ‘s original title even though it became sort of a black sheep amongst gamers after its release.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look for Metroid: Other M. It was an action-heavy game with quite the melodramatic story attached to it. Series protagonist Samus Aran, badass bounty hunter, is given a more fleshed backstory and, according to many, goes from being a superwoman to a passive, obedient one. The fact that she acts so submissively around his former Commander Adam Malkovich didn’t sit well with the Internet in general at the time and, on many levels, it still doesn’t.
I don’t have that kind of problem with the game as a whole, but I write about Dominant women so you already know I’m going to subvert this. What you don’t know yet is how so please look at the image below.
Recognize them? On the left, you have Reggie Fils-Aimé, current President of Nintendo of America and on the right, you have Geoff Keighley, former host of GameTrailers TV and the extinct G4tv.com. He interviewed Reggie on many occasions, many of which spawned memes galore and other hilarities. Some secrets were also revealed in them. As such, I decided to write my own and that’s what you’re about to read. This is a parody, this is humor, an indirect tale of Female Dominance and Mind Control. I hope you like it.
Have a good weekend.
“Reggie, about that last surprise…”
“Well, Geoff… Samus is back! In Metroid: Other Mistress, she goes looking for a Chozo artifact capable of turning the Space Pirates into mindless servants. Adam also makes a return and, this time, he’s the one needing to ask permissions. What do you think?”
“Shut up and take my money!”
