Hey, if someone wants to make a game exactly like Super Metroid, I'm down with that.

The people who actually own Metroid sure as hell aren't doing it.

In The Game of Clones, you either solve puzzles or you die...

Other than that, considering Super Metroid's origins, playing Axiom Verge on the PS4 seems more ironic than obscene to me...

I don't think it is an adblock problem, but an firefox and html5 problem.

It works on chrome, but it doesn't on firefox.

Well, I'm getting the sound but no video. Maybe I'll just wait until this goes up on Youtube.

I've tried with disabled adblock as well as a separate browser. Doesn't work in either. I think the problem is on their end.

See, me too. No idea what's wrong, but it has to be on their end.

Yeah, had issues playing the video in chrome, but it works fine in *sigh* IE.
... I don't even know if I still have IE on this machine. That's like telling me that it's only compatible with a gramophone.

It worked fine on Chrome for me. Hmmm.

That being said, the review schedules are pretty barren at the moment aren't they?

No, see, the "-vania" part of "metroidvania" is the bit where they communicate the story in the actual game rather than relying on the player to possess information scattered about in a variety of manuals, magazine articles, and comic books.

Anyone else having loading problems? Its like they made the page, but forgot to actually load up a video.
Ditto. Can confirm that it's not working for me either :/
That, plus the *entire* site seemed offline for many hours earlier today (probably during US night time)...

Oh yeah, that's true(was offline a few hours back iirc).

Well, the video works now after I disabled a certain extension[footnote]Crucify me if you will, but I choose to activate it for my own reasons[/footnote]

How come the video is now larger than my screen?

If you give us the option to watch in a lower quality stream, shouldn't the option take me to that lower quality page? Why does repeated clicking on the same link take me to the same "high quality feed" page?

I get that you think the audience has adapted to high quality because they're the one who've been bitching the loudest about hi def and aspect ratios and this of that nature, but not everyone thinks all this extra space to the left and to the right of the active window need to be filled.

A new video player, AND a new mobile version? Huh.

EDIT: I was going to whine about how Yahtzee reviewed some indie games I will never play, but then I realized that there are no other games besides MKX. Maybe the next ZP?
