Perhaps the hottest heavily-armored digital chica in gaming history, Metroid’s Samus Aran has become known as a kick-ass pioneering female who needs the help of no man. The moment that Samus was revealed as a woman at the end of Metroid changed my life. And I’m clearly not the only one who was inspired by Samus’s robotically-coiffed tactics.
Using 179 recycled or broken NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gameboy, and Gameboy Advance cartridges, JJGames created this awesome 3D Samus collage. Each cartridge was colored and then pasted onto a black piece of plywood. The Samus figure is about five feet tall and just as welcome in my bed as the real thing.
