Alshain01 commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:

The problem with the Prime trilogy was simple, it was a first person shooter, not Metroid. It wasn't Metroid it 3D, it was just a 3D first person shooter (which is probably why it was so popular given peoples fantasizing over Call of Duty clones) Other M had the advantage of being more like Super Metroid in controls. Story asside it was much closer to the original 3 games (only in 3D) than the Prime Trillogy. I personally would love to see more Other M style Metroid games, maybe with a better story though.

They must give that award to anything. Super Mario World took everything that was just freaking annoying in New Super Mario Brothers series multiplayer... and put it in 3D. One of the worst multiplayer titles I've ever done. You get 4 people who are attached by leashes (or bubbles) in a 3D area, it was impossible to keep track of. I'd rather play almost anything than play that game with more than 1 player.

@Darknyht I don't think they do. It seems logical, if you want to sell software you have to actually put it up for sale, but they just don't get that. They seem to think that money materializes from thin air. I've been a long loyal Nintendo fan, but even I'm finding myself disillusioned and ready to abandon this company.

The fact that they have an awesome back catalog but won't put it on their current consoles is a big problem. They can't even get games that finished development over 2 decades ago released when promised, how are they going to get modern games out? The Super Mario 3 fiasco is a big example of how Nintendo is failing to meet deadlines. There are others, but if you can't put out a 20 year old game on time, there is no hope for your company.

Nope sorry. I know I'm probably nitpicking but I was in my corps style high school and college marching bands and I know what to look for but this band is terrible. The lines are awful and people aren't hitting their marks at all. Movement is totally off the beat. My high school did better performances than this.

Pretty much this, even if the PC and Wii U editions were perfectly identical.... the PC version will run for decades, the Wii U version will be gone when the Wii U is gone. Regardless of game, if it isn't console exclusive I buy it on the PC.

Release a patch for SimCity to remove the always on DRM, then we will talk. Till then I'm not buying anymore EA games. Ruin my second fav franchise (behind Zelda of course) and your not coming back from that in my eyes.

@LittleIrves That will work to some degree but it wouldn't be quite as accurate. Some of the events in past editions (which I hope make it to Club eventually) have not really had much leg movement but still are an excellent source of cardio (Wakeboarding, Frisbee, Golf, Swordplay, Rowing, Boxing). Since the Wii Fit Meter is primarily a pedometer, it's not going to register for these activities. Some of these are actually in Wii Fit U too so it's not as big a deal (Rowing, Boxing) but still it would be nice. (It would also be nice if Wakeboarding could optionally use the balance board)
