    Neato!

    Well, if there's one thing about this game that I'm excited for, it's the story. The Wii, gamecube, n64, and virtual boy have all been devoid of good storytelling, and I'm glad that's about to change.

    I imagine all the movies had to be duplicated in standard 4:3 and a horizontally-skewed 4:3 (for widescreen mode), so that would double the required space on the disc.

    It's too bad stuff had to be cut to make it fit on. I'd rather them use slightly higher of video compression than cut content, even if it's just a few seconds here and there. Even a couple seconds can make a difference in pacing and impact.

    I have a feeling this game will be widescreen only, other games such as Xenoblade have done this before so...

    That sucks for people using disc backup loaders. I can't wait for this though, it looks awesome.

    The videos will be anamorphic just like most other content.
    Basically, if for some reason you're using a 4:3 TV, expect black bars.

    Exactly.

    Anyways you can check out impressions from someone that has a review copy here. There's also three exclusive gameplay videos that show segments with an over the shoulder camera (think RE4, RE5, Dead Space).

    Dual-Layer games are problematic with disc loaders. You need to set the proper layer break for them to burn correctly and some older cIOSes have problems with them.

    To people complaining about dual layered discs, that's why we use USB loaders. In the end it's cheaper than discs, you can download and play games at your whim (no more deciding about which games to burn, which ones not to burn), the compatibility is overall better, games run smoother, it's more organized (no more juggling discs and the fancy GUI of like USB Loader GX), and there's a bagillion other reasons. There's really not much reason to even be a major disc loader user.

    Meh, maybe it means more content, maybe it just means video isn't as compressed or there's more video. Who knows. I'll refrain from saying if it's a good game or not when I actually play it.

    Watching the gameplay videos kinda makes me wish that THAT was how I wanted Mega ManX7 and X8 to turn out like.

    If you pirate this game, I swear to god (or any great deity; it's all good), I will hunt you down and give you a good slap on the wrist. That's the English way.

    Will there be a Single-Layer version like SSBB? (No cutscenes) [​IMG]

    Never really played any Metroid game before, but would like to try this one out. [​IMG]

    Seriously? Super Metroid and the Prime series were awesome.

    Hmm... This is the fourth game to be dual layered on the Wii library now...
