Jessica Martin, the voice of Samus Aran in Metroid: Other M has contacted me with a special message to pass on to members of the site and the wider Metroid community wishing everyone a happy new year and to thank everyone who supported her and Metroid Other M this year. Shinesparkers would in return, like to thank Jessica for her contribution to the franchise and wish her the very best of luck in all her future endeavours.

It’s that time of the year again! Shinesparkers would like to take the opportunity to wish all of our visitors a very Merry Christmas. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you will take the opportunity to show your loved ones and the people you hold dear to you that you care. Whatever your plans are, we hope you have a great time!
Last Month we updated with news on a Super Metroid remix project by TenchuX titled “What would Samus do?” a project that hoped to raise money for the Childs Play charity. The project is now complete and the soundtrack is available to download on the website. The good news is that so far, the project has raised (at the time of writing) an incredible $419.77! TenchuX hopes to raise at least $1,000 so if you like the soundtrack, you can still donate and help him reach the target. Still, this is an excellent achievement and I’d like to personally thank TenchuX and everyone who has donated so far to help this worthwhile charity out. We will keep you updated on the progress of the project and the target it hopes to achieve.
Looking for a last minute gift for the holiday season? Perhaps you haven’t got around to picking up the game yet? Well, Shinesparkers is here to help you find a great deal on Metroid: Other M this Christmas! There are a few websites offering a great deal on the game, and you should definitely consider snapping up a deal before they go!
If you’re a resident of the United Kingdom, Amazon and Play.com are selling the game at a ridiculously low price of £14.99 while over in the United States, you can pick up the game for as little as $19.99! With prices this low, you’d be silly to miss out on such a fantastic offer! If you want it before Christmas though, you’ll have to order pretty sharpish!
Other Metroid games:
Asda Entertainment: Metroid Prime Trilogy for £33.91
We will be updating the website with any new offers we find. If you’ve found an offer that is cheaper, please drop us a comment on this news post and we will look into it.
Big thanks to Wid0 of The Joypads for the heads up.
