Still cool

Some things in the world of gaming never get old: stomping Goombas, matching gems, eating Octoroks. Here's one more for the list: watching this new Metroid: Other M trailer.

Showing off less action and more exploration than previous trailers, it certainly looks like the game is shaping up nicely, with great cutscenes and a sense of the spectacular at which Team Ninja excels. With a holodeck-style jungle, Morph Ball corridors and a giant tentacled beast rising from a pit of lava, Other M seems to have it all.

Check out the trailer and check back for more artwork as well as impressions from the E3 showfloor.
