Long before all my various flings and marriages to anime girls like Teresa, Yoko and Balsa there was only one virtual girl in my life and her name was Samus Aran. I had a Samus fansite even before this blog and up to this day I doubt I have spent as much time on one single game as I have done with Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo.
Fast forward to the present past the Metroid Prime trilogy for the Gamecube and Wii and you have my most anticipated game of the year. No it’s not Final Fantasy XIII, no it’s not Bioshock 2 not even the upcoming Call of Duty, my most anticipated video game of 2010 is certainly Metroid Other M and I am barely holding back the geekgasms thinking about how awesome this game should be when it gets released for the Nintendo Wii later this year.

My Samus stalking has revealed that a teaser Japanese website for Metroid Other M went live recently and I have been listening to the voice of someone who seems to be Samus as well as the awesome background music while going through the ultra simple website for any clues about the game. The game is expected to be released this Summer in Japan and the Autumn for us in the west, saying I can’t wait would be an understatement, in the mean time I’ll have to make due with looking at some Samus Aran Cosplay.
