Metroid Prime turns 15 as the franchise finally becomes relevant again

One of Nintendo’s greatest games is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Metroid Prime came out for the GameCube on this day in 2002.

Metroid Prime is one of the most critically acclaimed games ever and spawned two sequels. A new entry, Metroid Prime 4, is coming out for the Switch in 2018, according to Nintendo. That is part of a push to revive that franchise after Nintendo took some time to focus on other properties. Earlier this year, the publisher released Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS. The sidescroller was the first major entry in the series since 2010’s Metroid: Other M for the Wii.

Metroid Prime is a 3D, first-person reinvention of the classic 2D series that started on the NES. Despite that technological jump, Prime retained the basic design philosophy of beloved hits like Super Metroid. You still explore a non-linear world as you discover new upgrades and abilities that would help you access new areas.

The Austin, Texas-based Retro Studios developed the original Metroid Prime trilogy. Retro has since helped create Donkey Kong Country games for Nintendo, but it is not involved with Metroid Prime 4.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
