Death to the Mother Brain

Mother_brain_nes_2 After months of hardship on the planet Zebes, we finally made our way into the Mother Brain's secret base - but time and again, we failed to complete our mission. On Friday, finally, the Mother Brain fell to Samus' missiles and we escaped to the surface thus completing the NES game Metroid (emulated on the GameCube). It's been a wild and strangely nostalgic experience, for although neither of us ever owned a NES, this game is clearly an artefact of the 8-bit era. I'd forgotten just how hard to complete games from this time could be!
