The Professional Gamer - February 13, 2017

Hello readers! I've had another busy week, but found some time spend some time with video games. So let's talk about that.

First, after watching a friend play through Super Metroid, I decided to try playing through Metroid: Prime again. I last played it about 10 years ago and didn't manage to finish the game. So, I'm going to give it another shot. The game is still a lot of fun and the art direction and graphics still look fresh after all of these years.

Now, let's talk about the new mobile game from Nintendo, Fire Emblem: Heroes. I am surprisingly impressed by this game. The strategy and gameplay are deep, and, at least in the early game, it doesn't have the typical cooldown timer associated with mobile games. There is a stamina bar, but so far, I have not had an issue with running out during the normal course of play. If you are looking for something fun to play on the bus, I recommend. Just keep an eye on your battery.

That's all for this week. Have a great week and game on!
