    Why talk about Metroid? It’s a dead series now. Time to go.

    I never knew of such a thing....
    I bothered to look it up and came across some info a Metroid Wiki (inb4lolwiki)

    http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Metroid_Dread
    To be honest... I think it would be nice to get this or maybe something different onto the 3DS at this point.

    Metroid Dread is vaporware and nothing more than in-game references of the Prime games.

    No, you obviously missed some interviews from Yoshio Sakamoto.

    I remember the rumors of dread. taking place a few months after fusion. Samus having to deal with the after effects of gaining X-parasite and Metroid genies. Learning she may die w/o a way to remove both these genies from her body or worse turn into a horrible monster.

    Rumor started back in 2004, it is now 2011. That is a 7 year period, in game development terms, it is called vaporware. Until it gets released it is still defined as vaporware.

    The only question to ask is why cancel/delay the making of a game from such a series? It's not like they didn't have the money.

    They didn't cancel or delay because it was never confirmed to exist in the first place. It's all rumors.

    I think it's ignorant of Nintendo not to have made a 2D Metroid for the DS. It could have been a turd with Metroid written on the side and it would have sold. Look at the reception Monster Tale got and that game couldn't touch Fusion with a 10-foot pole.

    Personally, I consider the Prime series an abomination of what Metroid is. In my eyes, the FPS Metroid games will never touch the awesomeness of the 2D side-scrolling versions.

    My being an extreme retro gamer makes me biased though.

    Metroid Prime was good, it focused more on adventure (as it should). Metroid Prime 2 and 3 however, were... well, it's hard to consider them anything BUT FPS games.

    Exactly my thought.

    It would have been so great, to see a proper Metroid game on DS, instead of this Prime Hunters shit.

    Looks lie we're all on the same train.

    I mean Prime wasn't a bad game but the backtracking just felt rather tedious instead of exciting like it did in older Metroid games. Instead of getting a new ability and being like "WOW, I CAN GO HERE NOW!" it felt more like "Fuck, now I have to go all the way back there...". I don't know why, it just did.

    And don't get my started on Hunters, that game was bad. Instead of giving DS owners a 2D Metroid game like they fucking deserved, they shoehorned in the Prime design and it controlled poorly and overall was just poorly designed. Luckily the Castlevania games (at least Dawn of Sorrow if you're a super nitpick on Castlevania) came to the DS pretty much as good as it was in Symphony of the Night.

    I loved metroid prime when I was a kid. I would love another 2D game continuing on from it.

    You have to take time for ALL metroid games. Backtracking is HUGE part of it. What are you talking about? Metroid is supposed to be an action adventure.
    Or are you one of the guys that actually liked Metroid other M?

    The prime trilogy is one of the greatest achievement in gaming history.
    The artwork level of detail, and pure metroid loving imagination that went into the game is mind boggling.
    On the tecnical side it's also worth a mention. No visible loading times, Massive worlds, the total ambiance, incredible smart level design, compelling gameplay. Very few games have that.
    Put it in perspective with the limited harware of the time, and Well you can figure it out yourself.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a hardcore metroid fan too and I also loe everything about the 2d metroids but, Prime sets the BAR so incredibly high. There's nothing not to like in Mho.
    Just give in to the game, and get immersed in the worlds of tallonV, Eather and the MP3 planets. Finish it and replay the Trilogy. I'm doing it now and it's AWESOME. Even after all those years it feels like coming home.....

    You want an abomination of Metroid? Look no farther than Other M. To me that game was a HUGE letdown. I see Hielkenator touched on that in his post too. Good to see someone who agrees with me on both points, I have seen a lot of Prime hate lately which wasn't there when the games were released, and that confuses me.
