I-U commented on Renegade Kid’s 3DS Metroidvania Title Xeodri...:

I've been waiting to see Renegade Kid's next retro hit since Bomb Monkey. Being inspired by Metroid, I'm really thrilled for Xeodrifter. They're doing what Nintendo has been avoiding. Day one definitely.

I-U commented on Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Wii U):

I went to see the score first and then read the whole review. I can understand wanting to see a multiplayer component featured in Captain Toad, especially when multiplayer is unfortunately impacting the designs of major Super Mario releases, but I don't recall a co-op feature ever being mentioned for this title. I don't get how that turned into a -2 for the game. I would love to bring Pushmo's score into this regarding getting assistance from other players, but I can't, as it's done by another reviewer. Funny how that always ends up being the case.

I'm not all that worried about Captain Toad. I definitely plan on getting the game, more so now after seeing the score on this site, and I believe I will enjoy the title more than I have Super Mario 3D World easily. The most unique levels in that game were the Captain Toad levels in my opinion, and to have them fully featured in a full game is going to be awesome to experience.

I'm also glad that this is a single player game. There hasn't been a single player designed Mario release on console since Super Mario Galaxy 2, so it will be refreshing to play this spin-off experience alone from start to finish. There will be no disconnect transitioning from multiplayer to single going through this puzzle adventure. I'm excited for Treasure Tracker.

That looks really awesome. If both armored and Zero Suit Samus are available from the start, I definitely will be getting this title in early 2015 in spite of having never really owned a MH game. Even if they are unlocks though, I'm very interested in playing as Samus in both uniforms. I also have to say that I'm loving the attention the Other M designs for Samus Aran are getting.

I-U commented on Hyrule Warriors Producer Would Love to Work Wi...:

@LordFawful said it best, a Mario-skinned Warriors game would have to have RPG characters. Fawful, Cackletta, Queen Bean, Admiral Bobbery, etc; there should be no shortage for a roster.

When I look at Hyrule Warriors though, I'm more thinking about Metroid than anything else. I'd love to see how Sylux, Spire, Weavel, Noxus, Trace and Kanden translate into this kind of game. I think it'd be epic.

Fire Emblem would really interest me too. I haven't really cared for Fire Emblem's gameplay, but its cast is something else. Put them in an action heavy game and I'm set.

I-U commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

I'm really fond of the art direction, and really wish this project had been realized on the 3DS. Samus looks really threatening and far more alien like than her previous designs. Boss/enemy concepts are up to Metroid standards. I really would've liked to have seen the world NLG were planning on creating for this apparently canned project. Definitely trust Next Level more than Retro Studios, but I'm not so sure about putting them over SPD1 and Sakamoto considering MZM, Fusion and Super. If they've got one thing going for them over that development team though it's no Other M association.

@Beau_Skunk:
They probably won't stop. For some reason, people have a problem seeing an attractive character in an attractive outfit. I think it's ridiculous too that Nintendolife targeted Samus, but will not do the same for Shulk. They need to smash and delete their copies of Super Metroid if they have an issue with Samus in revealing outfits. That's an outfit that's actually skimpy.

I-U commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

"This version would also be used in 2006’s Metroid Prime: Hunters."

Echoes and Hunters do not use the same model for Samus's Zero Suit.

I voted the last option, because I feel the reaction to Samus's shorts in SSB4, and ultimately Fusion and Zero Mission, is completely ridiculous. If it weren't so counter productive, I'd recommend them take Samus to a new extreme that leaves these people behind. Like I've said before, I kind of want to see a completely new model for Samus's attire that makes these people violently cringe. The sooner these people that keep bringing absurd criticisms to her character leave the better.

I-U commented on Brinstar Confirmed as Classic Stage for Smash ...:

To respond to the ridiculous criticisms that Samus's tops and shorts may be receiving now, I hope this same female deigner puts Samus in a bikini. I want these supposed "fans" to be very uncomfortable, without crossing the border of Samus being overly sexualized. Currently, she's no where close. These are representing designs from Metroid Zero Mission and Metroid Fusion endings.

Actually, you know what, since people want to make reference to Samus Aran being Nintendo's DOA girl have her in an unlockable pole dance. I want to see these "fans" cringe so bad over "over sexualization" that they break their face.

I-U commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

Super Mario Sunshine would be my choice. I think the most ridiculous choice would be for them to go with the Metroid Prime Trilogy. They should just take one of those three, Metroid Prime preferably, and perfect that game through a HD remake. If they were to tackle all three games, I can basically expect barely any changes to them beyond the visuals.

Were glitches used in the Metroid Prime speed run? I would like to get my completion times for Metroid Prime down to at least an hour and a half, but I don't want to exploit a bunch of glitches to do that.

I-U commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

A Link Between Worlds for me. Best paced Zelda game in my opinion with a nice flow of action, an inviting degree of freedom and puzzle designs that are significantly less opaque. It's the only Zelda game I've completed without using a guide and that felt so rewarding to accomplish. I definitely should go through the game again sometime soon.

I-U commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summe...:

Mario Kart 8 easily at the top with Nintendo Land coming in second. Mario Kart 8 is the first game that I feel justified Nintendo's leap into HD as no other game has been all that impressive visually to me that I've played. Super Mario 3D World is a bit of a joke to me, a follow up on a handheld 3D Mario game isn't the way to show off 3D Mario on the Wii U. Do that first with something fresh like 64, Sunshine and Galaxy. I feel it's a bit of miss.

I-U commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

I'm glad that Nintendo has finally decided to reveal a support of the Gamecube controllers on the Wii U, but this is late in my opinion....by about a year or so. Personally, I'm a little annoyed. I spent most of my time with Mario Kart Wii playing with the GCN controller, and I would have loved to have had that support for Mario Kart 8. It bugs me that the day before Mario Kart 8 releases they finally show a product that should already be on store shelves.

@Nintendo_Ninja
I'm not saying a censor would make the game terrible. I just don't like the idea at all. It'd be one thing if she was nearly nude, but this is all over her cleavage. It's ridiculous and it would be a joke to see Nintendo cater to these people over such a lite image.

I-U commented on Hyrule Warriors Is The Zelda Game That Eiji Ao...:

I'll be honest. If Cia is censored, my interest will drop and Hyrule Warriors won't be a must have for me. I think the censor would be a huge joke and I hate the idea of Nintendo potentially catering to the people that are overly sensitive to more sexual designs.

I-U commented on Hyrule Warriors Screenshots and Gameplay Detai...:

Hyrule Warriors is the first Zelda game I've been excited for. Every other Zelda game I have I just kind of picked up just due to the expectations and hype surrounding the games. Here, I actually want the game. I'm a fan of Team Ninja's design choices and I like that they don't shy away from sexualization. Looking forward to this title more so than whatever they reveal as the actual "Zelda U."

@Melkac
Not everyone cared to accept an interpretation of the game that sought to destroy Samus's character and undermine how the series can evolve. I'm getting annoyed at seeing fans think they are somehow above those who enjoy Other M when all they've done over the past 3 years is whine about Other M and moan that Nintendo owes them a better Metroid game.

I-U commented on Weirdness: Gaze in Wonder at Junkboy's 16-Bit ...:

What am I suppose to take away from the user score exactly? That a lot of the fanbase doesn't comprehend Other M and the series in general? How many of those users needed essays to form their opinion?

So it isn't just within one person's comment, it's across the board for all comments. They want to limit the activity in the best thing gong for the Wii U don't they? Stupid decision if you ask me.

I-U commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

I thought this 3 min. cool down applied only to our own posts, not comments to others'. Part of the reason why I do consecutive comments to begin with is because Miiverse has a pathetic character limit to even discuss some of these games. They of course didn't expand the character limit to 400.

I-U commented on Super Metroid is 20 Years Old Today:

This year, thanks to being able to take screenshots for Miiverse discussion, I've been taking more note of Super Metroid's story than ever before. I love interpreting what all may have been experienced in an environment, and I really love Ceres for providing those three researcher corpses: one beheaded, one face down and one on their back. All of them are bloody. It was a scene in the environment that to me is the only time in the series where Ridley's brutality really got showcased. There are other scenes like that over the course of the game, and as I replay Super Metroid I hope to discover more to interpret.

I-U commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:

"A reason that the first Metroid Prime earned such critical acclaim was that it successfully recreated the world of Super Metroid — indirectly at least — and transposed the best elements of the 2D classic into a 3D adventure."

There's a huge difference between Super's Zebes and Prime's Tallon IV, to me, in all aspects. But I'm curious, how is Tallon IV a recreation of Zebes and Prime a recreation of Super Metroid's best elements?

As far as Super Metroid goes, fantastic game. I first experienced the title through the Wii VC, and I could see why it was a fanbase favorite early on. Personally, it's just behind Metroid Prime Hunters as my second favorite Metroid game. Speaking of Hunters, today's Super's 20th, tomorrow's Hunters' 8th anniversary.

I-U commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@Ruffigan
The breasts do draw attention, but if you're arguing that they completely take all the attention or even most of the attention away from the personalities they're given through story and gameplay, I'd say that's a case of the person wanting to objectify them, immaturity or a combination of the two. While I can see a reason to remove the breast proportions due to those who are really sensitive to this, I also don't want to see the change solely due to that reason because I do feel it's being overblown.

I-U commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

I have enjoyed my experience so far with Senran Kagura Burst. Since breasts aren't the main focus of this game, that being the game's face-paced combat, I feel the objectification is not done by the game but by the player. If you came away from the game thinking that these women solely provide breasts for a male gamer, then I would say you've chosen to objectify the characters. I personally take the game's action as a lot of these characters' portrayal, more so than their breasts. If anything, I would argue that this game is becoming a victim of a campaign that is overblown by people seeing one portion of these women, choosing to ignore completely the more significant portrayal brought in by the game's action and the fighting style of these women.

I-U commented on Weirdness: Samus Aran's Metroid Backstory Re-i...:

@Kaze_Memaryu
Upgrading to the Varia Suit when there are hostiles around leaves Samus extremely vulnerable. That was emphasized when Goyagma snatched her up at the top of the crater just after she upgraded. Before, she's sense moving out of Goyagma's reach. The excessive heat wasn't safe, but it wasn't so dangerous that she needed to stop her progress in a hostile region. The possible damage she would take from aggressive bioweapons would be much more severe, with the update process leaving her vulnerable, than the heat damage she takes through progressing swiftly through the sector.

I-U commented on Weirdness: Samus Aran's Metroid Backstory Re-i...:

The Varia Suit is only activated when it's absolutely necessary in Other M. Based on Super Metroid, the Varia Suit requires Samus to momentarily stand still and releases a good-sized energy wave as it updates to her Power Suit. Samus was never in danger from extreme heat during the segment. If there is an argument that she is, it's from a player projecting their first time through that segment where there's a greater chance that they somehow have low energy from the heat damage. It's not indicative of what Samus is actually left with though.

As for the short, I've watched it twice and have enjoyed it. I'm glad a fan, a true fan, spent the time to present a backstory for Samus that they took the time to want to craft. Too often in the fanbase now, there are people inept about discussing the aspects of Metroid they enjoyed and incapable of moving past their least favorite game in the series.

I-U commented on Famicom Remix 1 + 2 Coming to Retail in Japan:

The interest I had in getting NES Remix 2 off the eShop is pretty much gone. Why get just one when I know Nintendo would be capable of releasing both on one disc? I didn't dive into the first Remix, so a 2in1 disc would be ideal for me.

I-U commented on Mother Brain Revealed As An Enormous Super Sma...:

Don't like the troll on Other M fans in the article, but this is some great news to see Mother Brain active in the next Smash Brothers. First really exciting news I've heard of the game since Rosalina's reveal. Getting sick of seeing Retro fanboys whine about the Prime Trilogy not being the only Metroid games Nintendo cares about. There's plenty of cool material beyond those games, including within Other M, in the Metroid Series. Love what they've been doing with Metroid for this game, love it even more after all the arguments for the past 3+ years.

I-U commented on Kickstarter Campaign Launches For ReVeN:

I'd get ReVeN. If Nintendo can't satisfy my desire for a new Metroid, I'd gladly take a developer trying to replicate that experience in their title. They've gone a decade now not even bothering to make a Metroid game that revisits the series' roots.

I don't like seeing Super Metroid in third place, and don't feel New Leaf should be a Top 3 in any category above. Overall though, I do like the lists and couldn't agree more that Super Mario 3D World is the GOTY.

I-U commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

I don't feel Nintendo has been very prepared for this generation at all, and it's almost inexcusable considering what's available to them after the success of the Wii and DS. I haven't been on the eShop yet, but Miiverse has been working fine for me. I can see Pokémon Bank getting delayed when it already should have been available in late October. Again, unprepared.
