Other M is the Fallout 3 of the Metroid series.

Nnnnnnnnnoo...I don't think so. Fallout 3 was a radical departure from the mechanics of the previous two games. If anything, Other M is going back to its roots, rather than leaving them behind. Granted, Fallout 3 wasn't a completely different game, but for the most part it was brand new. Other M is more like a combination of previous games of the Metroid series. But, I'll have to play it before I'm completely behind or against this statement.

Also, sweet avatar.

@Blink: I think he meant due to the fact that Fallout 3 also received plenty of mixed reactions (most of the ones up in arms being the purists) when it first released...

"Don't make enemies, they'll stab your heart; don't make friends, they'll stab your back. Including me, including you, all men are trash. Don't love; don't be loved. Have nothing to do with other; live in isolation."

Really? Hmm, I was thinking actual gameplay and mechanics. If that's what he meant though, I'm still not convinced. Looking at review scores for Fallout 3, I'm not seeing nearly as much controversy as Other M, at least from the professional reviewers. From the "user reviews" on Metacritic though, there're plenty of zeroes and ones, but that always happens on Metacritic. Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I just don't see any connection between the two games.

And I can see the Fallout "purists" up in arms, but I have yet to see a Metroid lover bashing how Other M "ruined" the series...

Welllllll, okay. If anything, I think Prime is much more of a Fallout 3 than anything.

Why do people insist on pirating games? Are they too cool to use money? It's supposed to be illegal, yet it continues to go on! Don't let the rant continue here, though, for this is a thread about Metroid: Other M, not pirates. The only pirates that should be spoken about here should be Space Pirates.

I'm back (for the moment)!

JGMR

Yes, before the launch I grant these people as pure sensationalists, not as passionate gamers (like we are here) @ all.

Still excited. xD Still worried. Dx

Sooooon I shall know the truth!1!!

rip prime :[

Odnetnin

Oh no I need help right now.
I've pre-ordered the game from Amazon, free shipping to my house and $20 video game credit that will expire in a month or so.
But is it too late to cancel and pre-order from Walmart, no-expiration $20 e-gift card and supposedly an Other M poster?
And what about GameStop, with the art folio, extra 25% trade-in credit and discounted Wii Remotes ($35 w/ WM+)?
Please help!

Supermegaman

@Odnetnin Its all about opinion I suppose. The art folio can only be gotten through the gamestop preorder, and thats what I personally consider to be worth the most (preordered today ), but then if you think that the folio isnt worth 20$, than by all means go with amazon. The poster seems the least appealing to me, but thats partly because I got a poster already from nintendo power.

romulux

amazon's credit expires within a month or two but it's still good for preorders no matter how far off the release date is, so if you've got another game in mind (which i'm sure you do) you can preoder it now and still apply the $20 credit, even if it's set to expire long before the release date.

Corbie said this isn't anything like the Prime games, so it's a definite buy for me

Me and you both man!

Im sorry but I love it when Nintendo games bet something negative said by a reviewer just because Nintendo fans can whine and cry like none other... sorry guys buts it the dang truth. Buy/Rent the game, who cares about the reviews? If you like the game when you done playing it... does it really matter? All this "They dont like Nintendo" or is it really the fact Nintendo keep remaking game after game after game with the same character for what 20+ yrs and maybe the reviewers are getting a little tired of the genres? I dont know, but If you down with the game, its for you!

@Gabe: That's what I'm wondering, it should've been up on Friday, but thanks to NL not working it's still not up...

Fanboy tears are so, so delicious. Any time any Nintendo game doesn't get a near perfect score the starts.

well in this case I actually think most of the is justified. The G4 review seems to be blatently biased and over-reaching. I am personally loving the controversy of this game--the negative reviews have excited me just as much as the negative ones--but this G4 review is irritating. Especially because it's G4, a show known for their intense bias against nintendo

I'm not going to say it was a particularly great review, but I'm not sure I'd call bias. Point being, it wouldn't matter how well composed it was to the fanboys. They just see an attack on their beloved Nintendo.

Again, you're generalizing.

Am I? You realize which group I'm talking about here, right? Have you seen some of the comments appearing on the sites around the web?

I definitely see what you're saying. I just felt like you were saying that any time any Nintendo game get's a bad review every fanboy starts whining. I was saying, that's not true. Because there's a good deal of Metroid fans here who are really intrigued by the negative reviews.

Back on topic, though, I'm trying to beat Super Metroid by Tuesday when Other M releases. Got to the Wrecked Ship today so I just picked up the Gravity Suit...and now I totally forget what to do next
