"Anthony is on vacation," Xav screamed to Reviews Content Director, Richard Mitchell. "Are we responsible for today's Joystiq Streams?"
"I think so. What should we do?" Richard shot back, holding a pair of large novelty sunglasses he earned as a reward in improv class.
"Let's stream Metroid 2: Return of Samus on Game Boy."
"That probably won't go over well," he scoffed, attempting to put the glasses in his non-novelty pants.
"How about we stream Another Metroid 2 Remake, that complete Super Metroid-style remake of the game that has been in development for, like, a decade," Xav asked, swiping the glasses away from Richard like an annoyed parent.
"Forget Anthony! Can we stream the original game, too?" Richard asked, pulling a second, somehow larger, pair of glasses out of seemingly nowhere.
"I have a Game Boy Player hooked up to my GameCube and the original game. It's rough, but that might be fun," Xav replied. "Where are you getting these glasses?"
"We're not supposed to reveal our secrets," Richard smirked.
"That's magicians, you dumb-dumb."
Join Richard and Xav for Joystiq Streams: Metroid 2 and Another Metroid 2 Remake today at 4PM ET!
Nintendo may have forgotten the franchise exists, since no new game in the series has been released since 2010, but we haven't! We're playing both Another Metroid 2 Remake and the original Game Boy Metroid 2: Return of Samus at 4PM EST on the Joystiq Twitch channel.
Joystiq Streams broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST.
