Fundraiser Update: Continue!

Well, I’m continuing anyway. I had such fun with Super Metroid last weekend¬†that during the second part¬†I suggested resuming it this weekend. When I then got word of how successful the fundraiser had been (while others have spilled the beans, I’ll defer to PZ for the big reveal), well, I simply had to.

As per my usual, I’ve already been streaming for an hour. You can catch up with it on Twitch, and later on the video will migrate to my YouTube channel.

Fundraiser Update: Still Chugging Along

This is another halftime post. I just managed a sequence break by bomb-jumping to get the ice beam, and I’m about to start a big long backtrack where I go back through prior areas with all my new gear. The second half of the live stream is currently active at this link, FYI.

Fundraiser Update: Super Metroid is LIVE!

As usual, I didn’t give myself enough time to write a post reminding you of the game stream before I started streaming. Oh well, at least I can make up for it during the break! The live stream is currently active at this link, and right now I’m just at the start of Brinstar.

Fundraiser: Mother’s Day Gaming

Howdy, strangers! Gawd, I think I’ve promised myself and others that I’ll start blogging again a half-dozen times or so, and up until this moment it’s never stuck. This time is different, if only because I have a good cause: it’s fundraiser time again at this blog network! I’ve got two contributions planned, the first of which is a gaming stream on Saturday and Sunday. Since the theme this time is Mother’s day, I thought I’d celebrate two famous mothers.

According to the manga, Mother Brain raised Samus Aran when she was young, which played out pretty much as you’d expect. Aran and the Metroids are two different species (though Samus’ DNA is all kinds of mixed up, and like what is a species anyway?), but she spends some time protecting and nurturing a baby Metroid. Both of them check the minimum required boxes, and one’s even got “mother” in their name. It’s perfect!

Saturday and Sunday, at 10AM MDT, I’ll be streaming Super Metroid over on my Twitch channel. It’ll stay there for two weeks before migrating to my YouTube channel. I haven’t played the game in decades, so I’ll keep a map handy, but otherwise I’ll be winging it.
