yeah, it's fine. i got irked by all the negative comments because the game looks really good to me, but most people are focusing on the few potential problems it might have instead of all the awesome things it seems to be getting right.

Might be some of us cannot see any awesome things there. Anyway I really hope to be wrong.

I've seen a seven-minute play-session of it. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be the game of the year, if not it'll be amongst other classics that will be released on the Wii (DKC and Goldeneye).

This wasn't really answered for me yet...so....

...IS SCANNING GOING TO BE IN THIS GAME?! lol
seriously though, loved scanning creatures and all that as well as the lore and reading that stuff. XD

It's official, Megumi is now in love with crimsontadpoles and no one else....I mean, she still loves me and she's still one of my top waifus, but-...you know what just shut up.

ZOMG YOUTUBE!!!

I'm currently playing the Metroid Prime Trilogy in anticipation of Other M. I never did beat the Omega Pirate boss in the original gamecube version of Metroid Prime but I finally did so today. He was a lot easier than I remember. Got the Phazon suit! Can't wait to actually finish the game this time around.

@BellGoRiiing: It looks like scanning will be in the game, but not on the same scale as in the Prime games...

Yeah, looked like it in some trailers, but couldn't tell for sure. Wondering how it'll be different though...as long as that "logbook" is there then I'll be fine. XD

From what's been shown so far it just helps you identify pickups and blastable stuff...

I dunno if this counts as hype for Other M, but Amazon is giving $20 towards a future gaming purchase and they don't charge tax or shipping in most places. I preordered and bought a ton of(...exaggeration, about 10) games with $10 and $20 back towards future titles already, good stuff.

scanning was fun in metroid prime, but if you're ocd like me it's hard to walk through a single area without scanning absolutely everything first. this time it'll be nice to have the luxury of ignoring the background data and just playing the game.

I thought scanning everything was fun. One of the reasons I didn't enjoy (as much) playing through on the same file in Corruption is because all your scans carry over from your previous play-through...

Maybe this time there will be 'fronthoppers' instead of sidehoppers! The hoppers in Corruption were lame in my opinion

i remember thinking some of the enemies were ugly when the game was first shown, but after playing super metroid again you can see a lot of the same color schemes. for example, these guys: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/metroid/images/6/61/Metroid...
...have been around for a while: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SzmA6XmxuMM/SGcFfrUCnAI/AAAAAAAAAJw...

a lot of the enemies and environments in super metroid had ugly color schemes if you stop and think about it, but they were purposefully ugly. the odd color combination added to the sense of discomfort and gave the game a strange beauty. i'm hoping other m feels the same way when you're actually playing it.

Thanks for the link, 90s Gamer. I forgot about that site. Used to check it all the time when it was sort of new.

Whoa, I remember that guy!

Looking at the other images from that link, I really like the short-hair Samus look. Between her long history with bikinis, a recent fascination with plug suits, and Team Ninja's involvement, I don't think anyone would have expected this understated look.

She looks a bit too young and brash to have twice eradicated Mother Brain and her space pirate henchmen plus destroyed a planet and a whole species of killer parasites, but it's a marked improvement over the generic Hollywood image of sexy-lady-turned-warrior.

Hehe, yes. Typical Japanese design

Why do i have the feeling that this is going to be a very difficult game?

With kind regards,

Even if it is easy, I'll just be happy to finally get revenge on the hoppers for all those lives they cost me in Metroid.

I checked that out, but it seems incorrect i'm afraid. No wonder! they look amazingly similar. These creatures are the Rios :

I called them always the 'cabbage-wings'

Nevertheless, the Ki-Hunters do make a re-appearance...

that look is from her earlier days before she became a badass. i think it's supposed to be when she was still a soldier, which is well before even the first metroid. her pony tail/zero suit look is what she's had since going solo as a bounty hunter.

i could tell they were different bugs, but i couldn't find a big photo of the rios, so i used the hunter. they've got the same color scheme anyway.

also, i simultaneously bow to and pity someone with as much metroid knowledge as me.

Huh?? Sakamoto constantly talks about how this is set between Super Metroid and Fusion, how could it be before the first Metroid?
