Metroid Prime 4 Every Over-hyped Game
^ <-- expectations
v <-- reality
I wouldn't call this one over hyped since all we have seen so far is a trailer with a bigass "4" on the logo.
I'm making the assumption now that it's overhyped. People went bonkers over a logo, it's clear the Metroid series has been dormant long enough to allow huge expectations to fester, especially as old Metroid games become wrapped in nostalgia.
The original three Prime games looked fantastic for their systems, and played well on both GCN controllers and Wiimotes w/nunchuck. So it's not so much nostalgia as it is simply great games to live up to. Still, Bamco has all three of the previous Prime games to study and build on, as well as their own experience in level design from games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Should turn out pretty good as long as the FPS mechanics are solid.
I hope. Fingers crossed they maintain what made the Prime games good instead of following the rest of the FPS herd.
They're the same people that worked on Star Fox Assault. Take that as you will. (I thought it was great)
Thanks for reminding me that there's still hope.
Sounds good to me, I like the games Namco makes, and they seem to care when it comes to working with Nintendo lately (such as Sm4sh and Pokken), so I'm all for it.
So it has now been confirmed Namco ARE behind this game.
RIP metroid prime 4
I'm a huge fan of the prime trilogy but I think we can add this to the list of things that are going to be hit or miss including the new Venom film... (I'm a huge Venom fan too!)
they helped with smash4 and pokken they are hardly bad games...
also nintendo did the story for otherm they just wored for nintendo and the gameplay was amazing, you cant complain they did bad mechanics or programing, they are hired to code, nintendo is the one that says what the story does and so on.
I hated Pokken and not bothered about smash
Namco was, is, and will be a great developer. Sure there might have had some mishaps, but most of their games are quality games.
I trust Namco, if they happen to be working on Metroid Prime 4.
If you want to break your virtual GBA SP because of this, suit yourself. But I don't think it is bad news at all.
bs they turned other M into a bad ninja gaiden clone
i don't. but i'll wait for a preview video at least but if i see one thing just ONE thing i don't like in it than i'm not buying it
The problem is there are HUGE expectations for MP4, especially when its not coming from the original studio, it makes it all the more difficult to live up to that legacy.
The problem here is that Nintendo can decide to work themselves on their greatest IPs instead of investing their limited time to experiments and games that could easily be built by others instead.
Examples include Arms and Splatoon 2, which could very easily have been trusted to other companies as they are much more run of the mill. If Nintendo needs more developers to expand their studios, it is the best of times, they have lined their pockets with loads of cash from the Switch sales. Just keep the really important IPs internal for god's sake.
At the end of the day, BUY some good studios if you need to. They had Rare in the 90s.
What? Team Ninja developed Other M.
Also that's completely fine if you don't buy it, more power to you.
This reminds me of the same reactions people had when Metroid Prime was being developed by Retro Studios, who had absolutely no experience with Metroid before, just like Bandai Namco.
Kudos to you, though, for stating you'll hold judgement until you actually see something. You're a good step above many others who wouldn't even do that before discounting it.
you literally can do a really quick 2 second google search to find out that it wasnt Team Ninja's fault for how bad Other M was https://kotaku.com/5843159/blame-nintendo-for-metroid-other-ms-sucky-story All team ninja did was program the game to however Sakamoto wanted the game to be (Sakamoto was the co-creator of the original metroid/director of super metroid btw)
I have high hopes for this. Nintendo is not going to let some 3rd party dev screw this up.
I just hope the fan base is able to keep their hype in check as I don't think it will be as good as the first 3.
