It really bugs me that people are telling Metroid fans to get over Federation Force and deal with it.

If there wasn't a Zelda game for 5 years, and they came out with Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, would the Zelda fans "get over it?"

I highly doubt it.



MasterBombad commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Amiibo will be a touchy issue with fans for a long time, it seems.

Me personally, I love the idea of collecting little statues of Nintendo characters who have never had any physical merchandise before. But my gosh, why can't Nintendo seriously try and fix these stock issues? Its gotten ridiculously out of hand at this point!

I was finally able to find a reasonably-priced Captain Falcon on ebay recently, and he was supposedly released in the US last November?

You need to get it together Nintendo...



MasterBombad commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Well, that's it for me. Assuming the NX will both replace Wii U and be backwards compatible, I'll probably sell my Wii U.

This generation hasn't been very good for the big N. I only have 5 retail games for Wii U after all this time. Aside from Star Fox Zero, the future Wii U releases look pretty bleak for me; its very saddening.

Here's hoping the NX knocks it out of the park, in every respect.



MasterBombad commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

If this game was announced alongside a new "true" Metroid, then I wouldn't have any issues; I'm all for expanding the Metroid universe!

But I think a new main title reveal, along with FF to hold us over would've been the wiser move. Especially taking the 5 years since the last game into account.

But the fact they just released a trailer for FF with no explanation whatsoever is baffling. What kind of reaction did they expect? "Yay its something with Metroid in the title?"



MasterBombad commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

As a big fan of the series; to say I was disappointed from the reveal would be an understatement.

This really wasn't the best title to show following Other M's polarizing reception. I'm sure the game itself will be fun, but this is all we get almost 5 years later? At least Star Fox looks good I suppose...



MasterBombad commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

It definitely could've been MUCH better than what we got.

Too much padding on previously-announced titles, or ones not suited for the Digital Event, and not enough time spent on the new (riskier) ones; especially titles like Metroid Prime FF, which is still rubbing me the wrong way.



MasterBombad commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

It started out amazing with the puppets and Star Fox Zero, then... what happened?

Stuff like Metroid Prime FF could've used some context; like "why did they decide to go in this direction with the series?" While stuff we already knew about got developer stories...

It didn't feel like an E3 presentation overall, just an hour long Direct. WAY too many games didn't need to be in the presentation.

Nintendo, you're better than this!



MasterBombad commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

Eh, I've honestly never cared for Paper Mario.

I've played TTYD and SPM, but they didn't leave a lasting impression. The art style is cute, but I never liked the "trying too hard to get a laugh" writing the games had. When it comes to Mario and RPGS, I prefer the Mario & Luigi games.

But hey, kudos to everyone who like the series.



MasterBombad commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'm almost certain we'll see something Metroid-relate announced this year. What I'd like to see is a sequel to Fusion, with new elements like dogfighting and actually hunting bounties. I'd prefer the Prime style, but despite the problems Other M had, that gameplay style was good as well.

I'd take anything at his point. We need Metroid Nintendo!



MasterBombad commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I want to love amiibo, I really do.

I'm a bit of a collector when it comes to stuff like action figures, but the whole stock issue just puts me off. In fact, it started when I couldn't find Captain Falcon in any stores around my area that carried amiibo, but he was apparently released on the east coast of the US. (I live in the pacific northwest)

I truly hope to see this issue fixed very soon, as I'm never going to buy off a scalper. I have faith in you Nintendo!



MasterBombad commented on Talking Point: Prepare Yourselves - E3 Silly S...:

I'm definitely excited! We're finally going to see a new Star Fox after almost a decade!

I'd really love to see a new Metroid announced too. I'd be squealing like a schoolgirl if a new Star Fox and Metroid would becoming out within a couple years! :D



MasterBombad commented on Star Wars: Battle Pod Now Available For Home U...:

@KodyDawg Ep. III is awesome! It easily outdoes VI with its emotionally powerful climax, and dare I say rivals V with its much darker tone.

When it comes to Jar Jar, I'm a bit of a superfan. (I plan on dressing up as him for VII's premiere!) I've never seen the sheer hatred you commonly witness online for him even compare to how people are IRL, which is barely noticeable.

I consider the SW fandom online and IRL as two different animals. One's pleasant to be around, the other I'd rather steer away from entirely.



MasterBombad commented on Star Wars: Battle Pod Now Available For Home U...:

@KodyDawg You're not alone friend, I love the Prequels as well. I grew up with both trilogies, and Revenge of the Sith is my personal favorite of the saga.

Fans that are (at this point) still talking about how "bad" the Prequels are might be the ones with a problem, not the movies.



MasterBombad commented on Unofficial Metroid Prequel Uses The Original N...:

What's with the unfitting music in the videos?

Anyways, it looks interesting enough, and nearly anything Metroid-related gets me giddy. But could they of made the game look less... drab? The original Metroid was fairly colorful. Samus is just shades of blue here, while in the original she had separate hair, skin, and outfit colors.

But yeah, still not giving up hope for a Metroid announcement at E3!



MasterBombad commented on Disney Infinity 3.0 is Announced With Star War...:

I'll be very happy if it turns out as exciting as the trailer! Since Wii U isn't getting Battlefront, this could be the next best thing in terms of content and amount of playability.

Just give me Darth Vader and Jar Jar figures, and I'll be set! :)



MasterBombad commented on ​Warren Spector Reminisces About the Develop...:

The Epic Mickey games were truly some of the most uniquely designed and imaginative games on the Wii. I enjoyed both games (the second one a bit more) and its saddening that we may never get a third.

Its also puzzling that Disney didn't want to even make an EM movie! That would've been incredible! Guess they assume people just want more princess and superhero movies... :-/



MasterBombad commented on Interview: AVGN Adventures Developer on Influe...:

@mjc0961 "I can't believe it's 2015 and people still get hung up on "swearing". They're just words, they're only "more offensive" or "bad" because you personally chose to think they are, not because they actually are. If people would stop getting hung up on these words for literally no reason, they wouldn't even be used that much anymore. Getting hung up on swearing is such a massive sign of immaturity. It's about time the world grew up and realized there is nothing wrong with these words."

Wow, so much wrong with this paragraph. I don't even know where to start.



MasterBombad commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

I was honestly bored for the majority of the Direct.

Most of the stuff didn't interest me, and all I really wanted to see was some Star Fox footage.

I'm a bit worried at this point about SF; we don't have screenshots or even a title logo yet.



MasterBombad commented on Nintendo Announces Next amiibo Waves And Asks ...:

Dark Samus!

We need more Metroid reps that are actually different characters, and since it seems Ridley may not be possible, Dark Sammy would be the next best thing! Her Phazon attacks and overall mannerisms would be a great contrast to Samus.

She'd be an evil doppleganger, but with a unique moveset! :O



MasterBombad commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

@BLPs Dark Samus isn't a "literal" clone; she's a fusion of Samus' Phazon suit DNA and the Metroid Prime. She's an animalistic, yet cunning creature with the desire to harvest Phazon and spread it all over the galaxy like a virus. Besides her name and appearance of Samus, that's all her and Samus share.

Dark Pit's just another "darker, more edgier palette-swap/doppelganger" to add to the pile.

So yes, I would rather have Dark Samus.



MasterBombad commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

Very lame excuse. Like others have said Marth and Roy weren't known in the West, yet were included in Melee. I'd rather of had him than Dr. Mario AND Dark Pit.

As for what characters I'd want Nintendo-wise, definitely Dark Samus and Samurai Goroh. Their basic movesets are there! Just expand upon them and boom! A [true] second Metroid rep. and a second F-Zero rep.



MasterBombad commented on Sonic Team Boss States That There Are No Plans...:

That's good to hear, I'll always be a fan of the series. I'm looking forward to what Sega does next, hopefully its good enough to wash the Boom games out of our memories.

The people who just like to constantly jump on the "Sonic is dead" bandwagon every few years always amuses me; why do you desire so much for a series to be "dead" if you probably don't even play the games? Do something more productive with your time.
