    Ehh...I would have used a better description than "Nintendo employee" but that's just me. But even though it's true Metroid hasn't been on all Nintendo consoles, it seems obvious that'd there'd be one on the Wii U.

    Lol, I'm so tired. I thought the title said "won't" instead of "will". I was so upset!

    I hope it's better than Metroid: Other M. The graphics were amazing, but it was far too short and the dialog was pretty bad. The story was okay.

    No. Nintendo employee is perfectly fine. Most of people don't care about names anyway. (Besides only staff can edit topic titles).

    Please can you try to use some grammar once in a while?

    Aside from that, I agree. Team Ninja should've stuck to Ninja Gaiden and leave Metroid to Nintendo.

    Until that game, I didn't understand why Link from Zelda and Samus from Metroid never talked.

    My favorite Metroid game is still Corruption, followed by Hunters, so I hope they go back to that style of gameplay.

    To be honest, I sincerely enjoyed Metroid other M. I hated the dialouge but other than that the game was a thrill experience.
    I did like the idea of a 3rd person perspective, but they should of fixed the controls a bit (Nunchuck support) Anyway this is my opinion.
    I would really love the idea to see another Metroid game in 3rd person view, but with better controls and dialouge.

    It was way too shot in my opinion. I beat it on Normal, collecting every item, in 8 hours. I then beat it on Hard mode (no items available) in 6 hours. A full run of Corruption on Normal still takes me about 12 hours, and I've played it tons of times. For me, the story is the most important part of the game. Don't read the rest if you haven't beaten Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I care too, and you should learn to give developers more respect. And he's right, your grammar sucks and it makes you look imature and annoying.

    Ontopic, I really hope they bring the multiplayer back. Prime: hunters's multiplayer was awesome.

    Well, Link doesn't talk because he's kinda meant to be you in some sense. His name is customizable, Link is just a default name. Or that's what I think. Samus, I'm guessing because she's often times isolated in most of her games. It's to create a sense of isolation and loneliness in the middle of nowhere.

    Give us a 2D Metroid game or get the fuck off. I wasn't a huge fan of Prime but it was alright. 2D Metroid is where it's at, and they can just give us a damn map on the controller now.

    Honestly, I'm not sure whether that would have done the game much good. After all, Nintendo's Yoshio Sakamoto apparently wrote that horrendous story with all of those counter-feminist "mother" motifs. At the very least, Other M may have ended up with better gameplay.

    I never beat Other M, but I liked it a lot. I don't understand the hate for it.

    I kinda don't trust this guy... but they pretty much have to make a Metroid game. We just won't see it for a while.

    I was taught to not to have "and" at the start of a sentence.

    But whatever, we just going for understanding.

    Never Play Metroid other M. Hopefully I'll get to play this one.

    Retro Studios with Metroid Prime 4/Metroid 2D.


    Because Link and Samus are just avatars like Miis that represent you in that world? Make them talk just destroy the scheme of the game. Precisely, Other M just fuck up the scheme of a arcade game to make a cinematic game

    No, I wouldn't say it's perfectly fine and I'm not saying you should have put his name out of respect. Nintendo employee could mean a wide range of things. I know when I hear "Nintendo employee" or "Sony employee" I usually don't think they are the ones that are actually working on the games and are not reliable sources. I'm just saying you could have used producer/director and his word would carry more weight.

    I thought Other M was decent...it was really just the story (which in turn affects other things) that was bad. And if a new Metroid game comes close to being as great as Metroid Prime, I'd be satisfied.
