Metroid: Other M: Nate Bihldorff Interview
Nate Bihldorff talks about Metroid: Other M at the Nintendo World Summit.
Even the 2-D games gave a feeling of unstoppable movement, more than anything else. The 3-D games gave the 'walking tank' feel that is often used to describe Samus. This new game... I was floored by the first trailer. Samus is running, jumping, and flipping, finally showing in game, the acrobatic talent and agility that she's always shown in comics and cinematics.
@Warnerator and @kungfumushroom! I don't think a talking Link would take away the Zelda feel. I think it would be different, possibly even a bit bold, but all in all, it would be an improvement. As for Metroid, I kind of agree with Kungfumushroom. I honestly think Nintendo gave the wrong character the ability to speak. I've felt the need to know what was going on in Link's head ever since I was a kid playing 'A Link to the Past'. It goes without saying that the cartoon did not satisfy this need. Unlike with 'Metroid', this curiosity did not add to the mystery and intrigue of the character. It just pissed me off. So yeah. Link should talk. Samus should keep her mouth shut. :D Seriously, though, this will probably be a good game.
awesome gotta make money kid...i need a better games 4 the wii this 1 seeems like a good 1... :) the graphics might not be HD but idc i dont got a big hd tv anywas.. i will tho when im an adult :) ... gaming FTW
@Warnerator, Joeywan: I think it's the same with Metroid. It would lose it's feeling. Corruption introduced more dialogue, characters, story, etc. And all-in-all, it was poorly written and very cheesy. The other Metroid Prime games had good bits of story, but it was mysterious and vague. It created a nice feeling of being one your own in the vastness of space. Corruption ruined that with an abundance of exposition. It has some of the tightest controls of any FPS i've ever played, but one of the worst story lines. It looks like Other M will add even more unnecessary exposition to the series. When you tell people everything they immediately lose interest because they've lost the fun of guessing.
@Joeywan If Link were ever to speak dialogue in a game, it would lose any kind of Zelda game feel instantly.
First person mode is a full first person mode.The 2d parts are so you can fight like you always wished samus could fight.Jumping about morph balling and flipping everywhere.Somthing like that just cant be done in first person.
they can make Samus speak, but god forbid a talking link. -_- Maybe the next Zelda game will feature some spoken dialogue. I haven't read much about it, but that would be pretty neat.
@smurfandbuffalo I agree...well, let's just hope it's good. Many of us doubted the Prime series and it was a huge success...
@Weeeooojr well that sucks from what i've seen in the pics it would look cool to play it in first person. It's inventive to bring back the old gaming style, but maybe a bit too inventive...
It is a sequel to Super Metroid...and a prequel to Metroid Fusion. It explains the events in-between :) What happened to Malkovich too maybe...
Sequel to Super Metroid? Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Metroid Fusion the sequel to Super Metroid? Anywho, game looks pretty awesome. The cinimatics look dated though, sad to say.
It should be just big enough because there are a million and two examples of huge, long games gone wrong. The total average area of each Prime world is pretty huge, but of course isn't too huge, and is perhaps the best example of how to size the MOM world, give or take a hundred square miles. ...or something. :\
the only thing i'm worried about is if you piont at the screen and go into first person mode you wouldn't be able to move since you probably wouldn't have a nunchuck attached They have done these sort of thing like Tippi in paper mario but the game paused when you did that so.....
Looks so good. I'm definitely buying this ASAP. For now this is probably going to be the best game on Wii for 2010, since they haven't said anything about 2010 Zelda.
I can see Zelda at E3 this year, maybe even starfox, kirby, and/or DK. Yea, and Pikmini 3. Nintendo knows how to support there console.
@eldin4444 I know right! Mario Metroid and Zelda in the same year! Never thought i'd see the day... so the question is... besides Zelda, what other big announcements will Nintendo have for us at E3??? Mario and Metroid are already set to go... hmmm. Pikmin??? Donkey Kong?
i beleive this game is being developed by team ninja. i think i saw that before, if it is there is nothing else that needs to be said. team ninja doing a metroid game!!! the only drawback i can find is the difficulty of all other team ninja games. i'll have to try and not throw my controller when i die for the trillionth time
This FINALLY PROVES IT!!!! ZELDA WILL BE THE HOLIDAY RELEASE AND WE WILL ALL BE SUBMERGED INTO THE NINTENDO Wii WAYYY MORE THAN WE THOUGHT WE EVER WOULD THROUGH OUT THIS YEAR.! NINTENDO IS ABOUT TO KNOCK SONY AND MICROSOFT ON THEIR BEHIND! THE THING THAT SONY AND MICROSOFT DON'T HAVE IS HISTORY! ANYONE THAT HAS A PS3 OR A XBOX PROBABLY STARTED THEIR GAMING ON THE CLASSIC NINTENDO YEARS AGO, SO WE EITHER LOVE MARIO, ZELDA, OR METROID, IF NOT ALL THREE! WOW... I CAN HONESTLY SAY THE WE AS GAMERS AND Wii OWNERS DESERVE THIS AFTER ALL THE CRAP NINTENDO HAS BEEN PUTTING US THROUGH. I LOVE MY PS3 BUT THIS YEAR.... Wii!!!! AFTER GOD OF WAR 3, AND HEAVY RAIN... I CAN PUT MY PS3 ON THE SHELF... OH WAIT, LETS NOT FORGET ABOUT DEAD SPACE 2.... YIPEEE!
The heavy plot sounds great, but this whole side-scroller/3D plane thing worries me. They should have just done all 2D like NSMBWii.
You know something's wrong when the Dev interview-video is a higher resolution than the game will be.
those questions didn't sound like questions. ask more realistic questions instead of just advancing the other guy's viewpoint
@tooki ....I do agree wit u that the best metroid games were " Super Metroid and the first Metroid Prime game...that's it... Corruption is when it seems like it bcame a space soap opera wit too many characters involved...it was suppose to b Samus alone n the Alien planet....btw Super Metroid (my favorite one) had the best soundtrack of them all .... we need a remake for this game....
so you trigger the first person just by pointing at the screen? i better find curtains for my room, or i'll see a lot of "wtf? you're not supposed to go first person now!" moments >.> of course it's not the game's fault, but it'll be annoying anyway
I think I understand the name now. Samus is getting mother feelings for the Baby Metroid that died. Metroid: Other M = M+Other Metroid Mother Metroid.:P
