Man... I can't believe I'm saying this but Other M is kind of a disappointment to me.

Just for you.

@CB: Well, hop to it, man, it's well worth it (even if Adam doesn't seem to think so )...

@Chrono: What is it about the game that disappointed you? I'm curious to know, especially after all the praise it's received in this thread since its release...

I think I have the opposite of "can't stop playing it" disease: I can't keep playing it. It's too good. And I keep reading comments from people who have beaten it already. I don't want it to end...so I keep breaking off my progress, so that I'll have something for later.

I just finished Sector 1. I am absolutely loving this game. The voice acting is starting to strain itself a bit (barring Samus, who I really feel does a great job), but the atmosphere is fantastic, the room-by-room puzzles pretty tricky, and it's just an overall wonderful experience. Great stuff.

did any of you guys have truble finding Other M in stores?

The Best Buy I went to hadn't even put the game out on the floor when I bought my copy yesterday. The employee had to get it from the stock room.

I beat it, thought it was all over, then I saw the percent of items I collected...40%...That's not good is it?

@ballkirby: Wow, that is pretty dismal, you should go back and start collecting them now that all the locations are revealed on your map...

That probably explains why I beat it so fast...7 and 1/2 hours I believe. I'll have to double check that maybe
8 and1/2.

sakamoto confirmed that the next metroid will take place after fusion: http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=135156

that's not to say that he's already got the idea for it or anything, it's just that he seems to have said he'd rather to push the story forward next time instead of filling in any more gaps.

@romulux: F*** yeah! Come up with something as soon as humanly possible, Sakamoto!

I wish Team Ninja would've expanded on the 'behind-the-back shooter' style. It could've gave the next game a chance to have a Resident Evil 4-style game by giving the players a bit more of the feel. Many people think they didn't execute it well, so I guess the chances are pretty slim now. D:

i liked the re4 cam too. i was kind of surprised by how much it felt like leon at times, but they really didn't choose when to use it very well, for instance, when you're in a safe room with other marines present, it's not really tense enough to understand why they chose that mode.

Man, it's amazing how many people will just write off a game based on other people's opinions without even bothering to try forming their own (I'm referring to a commenter on that goNintendo article). Not to mention he actually bought into the whole "sexism" bit. I pity that fool...

...Chances are this will be Dread. Come out with it already! T_T
Would love to see a 2-D Metroid game on the 3DS.

Awesome news. I want to know what happens after Fusion. I'm very concerned how they'll continue to explain away loss of power-ups. I hope they don't come up with an even worse excuse than the most recent one. Power bombs were well explained. Weapons... I don't know why that matters when Samus is alone and not near anyone else to harm them accidentally. But suits and speed booster, hmm...

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

I read the full interview, and it was a great read. Of course, the most interesting tidbit being the one about the next game taking place after Fusion...

Where can we find the full interview?
And yeah, I'm really excited about finally seeing what happens after Fusion

@Kid_A: It's linked at the bottom of the goNintendo article (it's in Spanish, though, but I might be persuaded to translate it if enough people wanted to read it or if NL wanted to post it themselves)...

I can probably pick up most of it myself, but I think you should do it. I'm sure everybody here would love to read it

The fact that you have to use the Wii remote sideways is a little disappointing.
The fact that Samus is like a little p***y in this game is another let down. I mean come on I always thought of Samus as being the one female character to just be reckless and know whats up. Nope. Having this Adam d-bag, boss you around like hes your dad is something that threw me off at the beginning, along with the very poor implemented first person view which makes me just want to sell my copy of the game (Metroid Prime Trilogy anyone?). Not being aloud to use missiles in real time is quite irritating (for an example fighting any enemy and having to use missiles to make it an easy kill can only be used by going into first person mode, locking on, then shooting, but don't forget about repositioning your hand on the friggen' controller rather than just pressing a button to fire a missle. Come on the other weapons just lock on to the enemies why not the missiles?)

Though the combat is very poor I find it to be fun. That's it. Prime 1-3, Super Metroid, and Zero Mission? "Wow did you see that?! No ****ing way!" Metroid Other M? "Wow again? This is so stupid just give me my weapons now you ignorant..."

Another beef is having every item you acquired from Super Metroid but not being able to use them throughout the game until Adam says so. You don't lose them in an explosion, or an atomic blast. You don't even start off with nothing. Nope a human tells you to not use them and you follow his directions. Go Samus the universe's hero.

The bosses are too easy which throws me off again. The enemies seem to be harder than the bosses. I found myself struggling with the enemies more than Ridley or the other bosses. The voice acting is okay not really anything to be proud of but I did find Corruption to have better voice acting as a whole. The graphics are very impressive. Some areas have less textures than others but overall I love the graphic system. Finding a specific thing in an area with the first person mode to progress through the game was a dumb part on Nintendo's. I found myself more entertained watching paint dry than doing any of these scenarios. (I'm not joking.)

Your probably wondering if I even like anything about this game huh? Well I'm a "hardcore" Metroid fan to say the least but as much as I've expected from this game I came away disappointed. Every other Metroid (on consoles that is), blew me away from start to finish. This, from start to Ridely bored to me to a pulp. I now walk away thinking "Should I buy the next Metroid game? Should I waste my money on another disappointment?" The answer is yes because I'm a gamer and I give every game a chance. Especially Metroid.
