Nintendo's Metroid series is one of the most beloved in all of gaming. It's usually had nothing but praise until recent years. The last full game I've played through though was probably the first Metroid Prime. I wish a collection of the Gameboy games would come out because that run seems much more interesting to me.
This is one of those Chozo statues that always hold a nice little power up for our favorite space bounty hunter Samus Aran. Even though it kind of looks like a dragonball I assure you it's most likely something like the screw attack or space jump. Dang... I should have made it Samus in ball form, oh well.
