I actually find the Circle Pad more comfortable than classic analog sticks, maybe except for those found on X360 controller - those are awesome because their tops are concave instead of convex, and the fingers literally do not slip off them. But it's still only a matter of shape, so I'm sure third party accessories will show up for those wanting something else. ;)

You realize that third-person Metroid will never work with the remote and nunchuck, right?

ever played sin and punishment 2? i actually think other m would have been a lot funner if it controlled that way (no more auto aim).

It worked because Sin and Punishment is a rail shooter. It wouldn't work with Other M unless the camera was always behind Samus and you never had to turn around.

It would work if it were in the same vain as Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition. But I have a feeling Nintendo will just straight up opt for a Metroid Prime 4 or a classic retro-ised Super Metroid-like sequal.

Anyways, i could care less about this circle pad or analog stick ordeal....If anything, Nintendo needs to take a look back at the N64 analog stick and realise how precise and complex the analog stick/mario movements for Super Mario 64 were. I could get the slightest movements out of that game with that analog stick, or maybe because mario's movements were designed to be more subtle and again 'complex'.

Yet in Super Mario Galaxy for ex, mario controls loose as if those 'precise' movements don't even matter anymore. It's like Nintendo went from this rich true 3D analog feel, to a downgraded 3D D-pad-like feeling.

Metroid Prime 4

"Okay, Metroid Prime 4 will continue the story of phaz- No, wait, phazon doesn't exist after Corruption. Well, at least Dark Samus can- Oh, right, no phazon means no Dark Samus. Whatever, it doesn't need a story. With Retro Studios- Huh? Where's Retro Studios? Wait, they're not doing Metroid anymore? Adam didn't authorize that!"

All joking aside, it's supposed to be a trilogy. I'd love to see another first-person game (not Prime-related) eventually, but third-person is finally possible, and I want to see it happen.

This this this. The controls of Super Mario 64 were so precise and intuitive. The analog stick was complete crap though, it was flimsy and could break/wear-out very easily.

Super Mario Galaxy doesn't have the same precision in control as Mario 64. You can feel it in the way Mario walks and runs, he doesn't have the same degree of movement.

I never owned a PSP, I'm kind of a Nintendo fanboy so yeah, lol. I couldn't tell you one way or the other. But from the looks of it, I'd say the PSP one looks way more uncomfortable than the 3DS one. I just wish Nintendo could add some simple friction to it, like ridges and stuff.

True, they could have put little dots or something on its surface. If you ever get the chance to hold a PSP, make sure to check out its awful little nub. It will gove you a higher appreciation of your Circle Pad :D

I prefer the PSP nub over the 3DS circle pad. It feels much more comfortable to me mainly because my thumb isn't sliding off every 2 minutes.

And that's definitly the main thing that bothered me with Super Mario galaxy, aside from it's slower paced gameplay.
Why would nintendo ditch Mario 64's incredibly intuitive and fun complex degree of movement in favor of Galaxy's dumbed down loose controls? The N64 stick also felt a smidge tighter and a bit sturdier which maybe kind of helped...

Anyways, no other 3D title has controlled as amazing as Super Mario 64 imo....It was mind blowing, too bad that incredible degree of control never carried on to galaxy....Hell, in galaxy it feels so fidgity and akward trying to creep step....it just doesn't feel right or work right. The degree of movement in galaxy is a step down.

Weird, I never touch any gaming console without washing my hands for 3min, and it still slides off of the 3DS slider more than PSP nub.

and I don't even have a 3DS!
