GR+ Live: How (not) to speedrun Metroid 2

On Tuesday we took a tour through AM2R, the decade-in-the-making unofficial Metroid 2 remake released on the series' 30th birthday. It's high quality stuff, as you can see in our Metroid 2 remake walkthough, but is it definitively better than the original? Let's find out together! 

Enjoy the show? Watch us live every Tuesday and Thursday live on Twitch at 1:30PM PT/4:30PM ET/9:30PM GMT.


I've been playing games since I turned four in 1986, been writing about them since 1987, and writing about them professionally since 2008. My wife and I live in New York City. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game ever made, Hum's Downward is Heavenward is my favorite album, and I regularly find myself singing "You Won't See Me" by The Beatles in awkward situations.
