Wait... this still happens?
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

There must be some sort of drug use in the game.

Isn’t there drug use in every game?

There's drug use in a lot of games but it depends on if it's named after a real drug.

Retro's retirement gift to Reggie has fans looking for hidden clues

Image

Reggie put up another tweet showcasing a number of retirement gifts he's received, including a piece of custom art from Retro Studios. It's that piece of art that has fans salivating at the thought of teases for things to come.

First up, we have the artwork for Samus. While the details are a bit iffy, it seems most fans can agree that the design of Samus is new. The head-portion seems to combine the visor from Other M, but the helmet of the Prime series. There's also a slight difference in the Arm Cannon below the elbow. Is this all just artistic license, or is there something more to it?

Moving on, there's also a mystery robot-like hand in the image. This is the one that's really confusing fans, as a specific point of origin can't seem to be nailed down. It doesn't help that the Mario statue is blocking the way either! There was some dicussion that the hand is from Metroid Prime: Federation Force, but that was quickly shot down for a number of reasons. That leaves us with no clear-cut explanation as to what it's from!

Last and least, people have noticed that the font in the image comes from Banjo-Kazooie. Some are hopeful that means something, but I wouldn't put much weight in that.

Well, Nintendo sleuths, what say you? Can you glean any information from this, or is everyone diving a bit too deep?

It's nice that they're offering a stylus, but I think I'll go with something that's more grown up.

That game looks like garbage even at $10, why would I pay $50?

It's got a very positive rating on Steam, it must be good!

It has a catchy theme tune.
