Man only like a week left! I can't wait! I;m still trying to decide if i should get metroid 3, or monster hunter freedom 2 which comes out the next day!!!!
New details surface at E3 '07 regarding this eagerly anticipated franchise shooter for the Wii.
One of the first nuggets of savory information at the Nintendo Press Conference came in feminine form, as Samus Aran blasted foes on the big screen, while an equally feminine demo girl demonstrated how fun and easy the game was to play. The presentation was short but tantalizing, with two main bits of new information regarding a game that both you and yours should be eagerly awaiting.
The first was the lock-on system. By pressing a button on the Wii Remote, your screen will lock on to your targeted foe, not your crosshairs. This way, you can easily strafe enemies, but still have the freedom to aim at their weaknesses. In the demonstration, the girl deftly maneuvered around marauding space pirates, dodging their shots, and pelting them about their deformed heads with all manner of flashy, painful-looking projectiles.
Speaking of aiming for weaknesses, Nintendo has never had any problem locking onto yours, as the second bit of information proves. To augment her combat abilities, Samus can inject herself with a potent serum. With a stiff dose of this stuff, she hits much harder, but watch out: Like any performance-enhancing substance, Samus's little helper comes with consequences. If she uses too much, she'll be corrupted, utterly. We don't know what that means, but it sounds hot. And so does Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
cant wait for it......but is the release date ''august 27'' only in the U.S. or is it in Canada also????!!!!!!
I just can't wait for this game. After playing the first two, this easily became my favorite franchise, and the wii only makes it better.
Awsome, I never got the first 2 Metroid Primes because of my inability to play First Person Shooters effectively, but after seeing what the Wii-mote can let you be like you are holding Samus's Arm canon, this has me got this game on my most wanted list.
I can not wait. I have to make sure to save enough money by the end of next month. This bad week is turning into a good one.
Kenshin, read schizo's post again. He's 100000% right. This is an action-adventure-shooter, not just a shooter. I.E., this shouldn't be online. Plus, i'm looking forward to the single player, and look at Metroid's last attempt at online multiplayer--the singleplayer sucked.
Been looking forward to this one for a long time. Like some have already said, its made to be a single player game and I'm one of the few who doesn't care for the multi-player gameplay. Its a good thing this comes out before Halo 3 since I'll be getting both.
i dont get whats with all you online people, this would SUCK online its built to be a single player game, unless online mode would be "one samus vs ten aliens on a team" it would just end up awkward and not fun this is a less a "shooter" and more an "action adventure shooter"
This is going to be ahuge title for Nintendo, and hopefully it will drive sales within the hardcore sector
this is simply going to be one of the best games off all times.gameplay,control,atmosphere,feel of exploration, and a lot of others make the time until it comes very hard to pass.
SURFDUDEBOY, the said that this game will not have online play and even multiplauer is up in the air right now. So they had better make the single player mode really fun. Which I am sure they will
sounds reaaly cool i think they ARE going to have multiplayer, they just didn't tell you, they may make online play availible via downloadable content
this game is gonna be awesome, hope it will be worth the wait.... but it sucks there's no online, how could they not incorporate that? nintendo would have finally been in the running with some of the other consoles with a fps type game...
Metroid was never about mulitplayer to begin with. Yea, it worked fine for the ds, but the multiplayer in MP2 wasn't so hot. I'm fine with just a single player game. Not every game out there is made for multiplayer. Amen to that, if they're going to add multiplayer, either get it right, or don't do it at all.
To wwwyzerdd: Actually, I remember them saying something about this having Wi-Fi support awhile back. Anyway, the Online for Hunters is fun. I'll be buying this anyway, but Wi-Fi would be fun.
Wow, that actaully addressed my concerns about dodging but not locking, cool, everything is well now
Metroid Prime 3 is going to reinvent the FPS genre! I can't wait this game will change how we play FPS games!

"Metroid Prime 3 will not have any online multiplayer, I'm not getting it anymore." whining makes my ears bleed...anyways, i just preordered this game at my local Gamestop...CANT WAIT!!!

I will be spending a lot of money on games this year! Well, the control scheme seems good. This game will most likely be really good. Hopefully they decide to put an online multiplayer mode on it like Metroid Prime Hunters.
I was planning on buying this game. It still sounds great and all, but I WANTED ONLINE PLAY!!!!!! I was really looking forward to this game, but I'll have to wait and see if the single-player is really that phenomenal.
Not groundbreaking, but sounds effective. Can't wait to try the control scheme out for myself. Mmm...
metroid prime 3 corruption looks like a great game and the controls for the wii seem fun too. cant wait!
