On the Friday immediately preceding the first Monday of each month when we would normally post our first review, we report on what we are doing to achieve our goal to review every Metroidvania game. This announcement includes our schedule of reviews and articles for the upcoming month, as well as any planned site adjustments or other important announcements.

October Review and Article Schedule
Below are the games we plan on looking at this month.
Disclaimer – While we work very hard to keep our schedule exactly as we’ve announced it, technical difficulties or surprise high priority review requests can require us to adjust the schedule accordingly. We will post an announcement any time this happens.
Psycron- October 4
An homage to the Metroid series that may come a little too close to its inspirations. But, if you’re looking for a good mini-metroidvania to play, this may satisfy that craving.
Within a Deep Forest – October 11
Dr. Cliche wants to drop a bomb on the world or something, but what that means for us is that we bounce around as a ball, looking for other ball materials to progress the game. This is a very weird premise.
Metroid Dread– October 18
Finally the conclusion to the 2D Metroid Saga – or so they say. Will Dread live up to the legacy of Metroids 1 through 4?
Carrion – October 25
Play as a horrible monster bent on killing the scientists that are imprisoning you. This has been a long time coming, and it’s a perfect review for the week of Halloween!
