Title: Metroid: Other M
Post by: gec05 on February 24, 2010, 07:09:16 pm
Now I am excited for new games again. Especially with Nintendo's recent announcements. Now we are finally moving forward in the Metroid story line with Other M, which takes place sometime after Super Metroid. A blend of cinematic glory, 2D-3D gameplay, and even some dialogue from Samus. This game is looking up to be great.

So what are your thoughts?

I'm hoping to get it. I'm not sure when it's coming out, hopefully sometime before my birthday.

I still want to see some actual gameplay, but right now I plan on buying it. The 2D stuff is what I'm excited about.

D'oh. They turned Samus into a Final Fantasy character >_<

This game, man... I'm trying so hard to like it.

But their failure to explain several key moves and the general sense that the only way to accomplish things is by button mashing... it just ruins things. Also, I can't half-charge my blaster which is irritating. And when I go to turn around to attack enemies behind me, Samus just decides to merrily march into the group and take massive damage. :|

Is it too much to ask that once, just once, a female character can go through a trauma, deal with it in an orderly and realistic fashion, and come out stronger for it instead of being reduced to a blubbering wreck who needs a big strong man to save her?

Its not like Samus hasn't been absolutely fine with slaughtering Ridley without compunction every other time she's met him :P

What happened to all her awesome Chozo training?

If Samus can't do it, no female lead can.

Post by: Gnoll on September 14, 2010, 07:49:43 pm
Isn't this game a prequel? TO EVERYTHING? That would explain why she's afraid of Ridley in this one. It's the very first time she's fought it.
Title: Re: Metroid: Other M
Post by: Rysworld on September 14, 2010, 08:36:35 pm
Uh, no.

This game, according to the Metroid Timeline, takes place right after Super Metroid.

Derp.
Title: Re: Metroid: Other M
Post by: eropS on September 14, 2010, 08:39:29 pm
Further more, according to the timeline, its actually the second to last game in the timeline so far.

So Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid 2: Samus returns, and Super Metroid all take place (and in that order) before other M. This is thus the 6th time she has fought him (pretty sure he isnt in Prime 2 i think, otherwise this is the seventh).

If that's the case, there's absolutely NO reason why Samus turned into such a *****-ass bitch.

^Well for the most part, Team Ninja wanted to capture her manga personality more so then being the memetic badass she's been in the games.. sure it adds a bit to her character, but in this case it was TOO much they tried to add on to make her seem more human IE fear, anger, shock etc.

Aside from the rights, if Nintendo ever wants a third party company to make a game, taking part in most of development is a must  :-\

Second to last?

...wow. That's just plain WRONG what they did there.

Metal gear off the top of my head.

I wouldn't really call the writing in any of the Metal Gear games 'good'. Its something alright... but I'm not sure if its 'good'.
Title: Re: Metroid: Other M
Post by: Celdur on November 30, 2010, 03:41:51 pm
i hate to say this but...some jrpgs >.>
and metal gear solid 3 was pretty good, especialy the ending

and team ico is brilliant

zelda games have some variety in their stories too, most people say its the same but not really.
and midna was pretty cool yo.

If by pretty cool you mean the usual Shrew you get saddled with in most games. :I

Team Ico might be better if all you guys hopped off their dick.

Title: Re: Metroid: Other M
Post by: Celdur on November 30, 2010, 06:20:50 pm

for one thing though, team ico doesnt have strongly written female characters >.>
its kind of sexist actualy
