Metroid Other M

Here it is for those who didn't watch the conference...

  
The important thing to remember is the + Nintendo imo. It's not just TN alone...

If anyone has a better video source please link and I'll replace this shitty stream. The game looks so much better...

This looks like one of those fan vids people put up on youtube.  Like the one where Samus faces off against the Master Chief.

Game look awesome.  By the looks of the trailer, it looks like a Action/FPS game to me.

#4 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

It has 2D sections as well. Maybe it's that "classic" Metroid everyone's been asking for, except spiced up with some third and first person stuff.

I want this game to be the latest in the timeline!

2.5D anyone?

#6 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

1 of those for me Forcen :D

Other M should be MOTHER

Slightly better stream on the 1st post now. At least it's smooth now.

I am REALLY liking the look of this game. Hopefully Samus' melee attacks and grapple moves are more than just the stuff of cinematics. If they find a way to allow players to pull that off in-game, in addition to the shooting, this game could be really good.

Also, really liking the richness of the colour in some levels. That's what Metroid Prime 3 was missing in my opinion.

Damn that looked fucking amazing!
That might just be the perfect metroid game lol
I hope it turns out well :)

The talent was ripped out of Team Ninja when Itagaki and his bros left. I wonder if this will be any good.

#12 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2501 posts) -

Looks really fun, a lot more story driven than the previous titles.

It's not just Team Ninja, it's Nintendo also. They'll not deliver anything less than awesome, imo. They'd rather scrap it and give it back to Retro.

This is a hellishly outlandish theory, but I'm gonna put it out there so that if it happens, I can say I called it.

First person sections are the equivalent of QTEs. Instead of having to press buttons quickly, you have to line up a certain shot with the wiimote for a boss or some other event to trigger something more cinematic. I don't think that's a bad thing either, it sounds like a decent alternative and it fits with the game. And frankly, it sounds like something team ninja would do.

Also, I watched the conference without sound, so if there's something to shoot this theory down already, I apologise =x.

#15 Posted by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

Yeah I can see it being used for split-second timing shots at weak points and things, could be cool intersected with the standard fighting.

Samus Aran looks  hotter than ever!

I had a mental orgasm while watching this. Nintendo has oficially won E3 for me.

I just keep coming back to the fact that, without this Metroid and Golden sun, the conference would have been just as dissapointing as last years... In fact all i remember from that one was Animal Crossing and GTA

The trailer looked absolutely insane, one of the highlights of the conference. Definitely looking forward to it.

All this is perfect with Sakamoto's team working with Team Ninja. Yep, Sakamoto, the guy who helped guide Retro on making Metroid Prime, before splitting off and letting Retro make their own interpretation of Metroid with the Prime Trilogy. Glad to see the man back in action.

what could Other M mean ? Other Metroid ?

I love Samus's art style,

it seems to be based on her early life..

I heard it was fleshing out the relationship she had with the scientist in Fusion

Not a scientist, but a military officer.  The man that calls Samus "Lady" in the trailer is probably Adam from Metroid Fusion since Samus noted that Adam always used to call her that.

Personally, I'd love it if this game is a prequel to the original Metroid.  There's a lot of territory in Samus's character that Nintendo hasn't explored, and this game seems to be taking that job head-on.

What sealed the deal for me... Mother Brain, baby!

Game of E3 for me.

#26 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

Pretty much my reaction, except instead of the "Nintendo is dead to me stuff" I was all like "oh God, they'll crucify them. this lasted one minute, but it will be ALL people will be talking about" and then when he presented the game I went to "oh, quick recovery, nice" hurhur.
#27 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

That is funny, but they forgot the best part of the conference...

Apparantly not enough people get it yet Alexander. I've spent the last 3 E3s hoping for this game, and when I least expect it Reggie drops the bomb. This is... significant.

You know, the reaction in the comic kind of reminds me of E3 05, with the Brawl showing, and the Fanboys online reaction to it.

..wait what was that game again? Shining Sun? Blazing Sun? The Heat of the Moment Sun?

:p

Although I wish I was as excited as you are, my DS has been siting untouched for more than a month with an unfinished copy of FFIV in it :\

Since this thread is about Metroid i'll just make this last comment about it here. The DS has thuroughly impressed me with its gaming library, and putting Golden Sun on it to me is like a remake of FFVII,  or an american release of Seiken Densetsu 3, or a VC/XBLA version of Goldeneye. Its the best possible scenario in my eyes, and the only thing that could make the DS better now is a Shantae.

Since it is made by Team Ninja, you think there will be more jiggle physics?

Well, my "KJSFLKJDSFKLJSDFLKJ" moment happened earlier in the conference, but yeah the Metroid reveal was quite nice too. If they had also shown us a couple of Ninty's "B" properties, like Kirby, F-Zero, or Starfox, this would have been a very major event.

They could have gone off like a spring.
