Reggie Wonders Where Metroid: Other M Sales Went Wrong

Why did Samus underperform?

Metroid: Other M divided gamers: many loved its combination of action, exploration and conversation, whilst others hated the new portrayal of traditionally less vocal heroine Samus Aran, amongst other things.

Reggie: We’ll Be Better at E3 This Year

Nintendo hoping to make amends for 2008's dire performance

E3 2008 wasn’t a particularly good one for Nintendo.
