  2. Release Date: October 8th Site: https://metroid.nintendo.com/ Join intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran in her first new 2D Metroid™ story in 19 years Samus’ story continues after the events of the Metroid™ Fusion game when she descends upon planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation. The remote planet has become overrun by vicious alien lifeforms and chilling mechanical menaces. Samus is more agile and capable than ever, but can she overcome the inhuman threat stalking the depths of ZDR?

  3. Idk I think value depends on your priorities. If you want a long game I wouldn't recommend any Metroid game. But if you want a really polished and good short game that you can replay a ton I would. I don't think value is always related to length because that Resident Evil 2 remake from a few years ago was one of the best received games that year and you can beat it in under 2 hours easily. Same with almost every Metroid game. People still talk about Zero Mission and you can beat that game in an hour. A 20 hour long 2D Metroid I don't think would even be a good game tbh.

  4. I only saw this opinion take root from Sony fanboys and such, calling it a glorified indie game simply because it's 2D. It's not just a Metroid thing, but growing animosity towards anything 2D nowadays, or anything that isn't a big budget AAA 3D title. The usual kind of elitism. Dread may not have like an Odyssey or BotW kind of budget, but it's a AAA game nonetheless, and it still looks like a Switch game, compared to Pokemon Sword/Shield that looked like an upscaled 3DS game. Not to bring up that topic again, but I can understand people having taken issue with SwSh being $60 more

  5. Just a heads up, after watching the trailer a few times Link does in fact have a melee weapon (sword), though even so there wouldn't be a lack of weapons as we've at least seen his bow/arrows. I screen capped and put arrows towards what looks to be the hilt of a sword. You definitely see it much clearer in the left image rather than the right, but if you watch the video in slow motion you can see that there is a difference between the sword hilt and the curvature of the bow. Follow it down and you can see what ends up looking like either the blade itself or a sheathe that it slides into at

  6. Just realized that this game has technically been in development since before Half-Life 3. Assuming the latter isn't officially cancelled, that already breaks the previous record held by Duke Nukem Forever.

  10. Not surprised. After Other M there was a lot of "dragging through the mud" of Sakamoto's name and no doubt certain fallacies and outright lies took root. It's good to see though and I'm curious why the one in this game was seemingly dismantled. The AUs were designed to assist with the development of operations or planet terraforming depending on where they were installed so whatever happened there could have some big implications as to mysterious surrounding planet ZDR.

  11. So, I learned something today rewatching the Treehouse stream for this game. I did not realize that they actually have a reference to the Aurora Units from Metroid Prime 3. There is a scene in which Samus interacts with this device called the Central Unit which looks very much like the AUs in MP3 and have similar function.

  12. I get you but I also don't get you... I mean people are still having a hard on for Melee matches in the "pro community" so.... I'd argue they have been pretty balanced on DLC love though.... I mean you cover RPGs with Pyra/Mythra, Sephiroth and Hero.... You cover fighting games with Terry and Kazuya... You cover "kids" with Steve and Min MIn... The roster overall has enough characters from tons of genres that anyone looking for anything should be able to find something to like and play.... I think it has been a smart play to go for some fight

  13. so uh how about that switch pro announcement, eh? I'd personally be quite happy for a Switch Pro with a bit more grunt and a higher resolution output. But it does seem like all the hype and leaks around this have pretty much fizzled, heh. Can't say I'm surprised.

  15. Whether it's a traditional or platform fighter, a fighting game is a fighting game, which will usually have various levels of violence... I can't believe we're really going there, and Smash would still need a lot more violence to be compared to Mortal Kombat. All the trailer "deaths" have been in-character too far as hyping up the newcomers, so I see nothing wrong with them, even if it's done in part to look more edgy now or whatever. Smash 4 appealed to the competitive scene more than the series did prior too, but didn't see any complaining about that. The best thing about Ultimat

  16. Is it just me or is anyone else really diggin' Samus' new suit? When they first showed it in the trailer I was like "Oh Samus has a new suit!" "Makes since given that Dread takes place after Fusion." and I wasn't really sure about it, even after watching the Treehouse gameplay. Now after looking at the official artwork, I'm really liking it. It's just something about the colors that work so well together. I think this new suit looks way better than the Fusion Suit from Metriod Fusion and especially, the PED Suit from MP3:C.

  17. So, I don't follow the Tekken story much at all, but is Kazuya Mishima really that much more of a front runner than Jin Kazama? Or is this one of those things where it was a Sakurai's choice thing and Kazuya is just a more interesting character? Pretty cool announcement, just curious as I always saw Jin as the "hero" of that franchise much like Ryu is for Street Fighter. Anyway, pretty good direct though I wish some of those port overs included Xenoblade Chronicles X. The fight continues for this one, I suppose! Metroid Dread is crazy. Still wish Metroid Prime 4 had

  25. Even 4 years after the Switch being on the market, I've never even thought of it replacing my 3DS. I still play it most days, and I have a huge backlog (mostly Atlus titles) to tackle. Along with some of the best games Nintendo has produced in the past decade, there's plenty of reason for the 3DS to remain active. I'm also biased in the fact the 3DS was there all through out college, and I look back fondly on the days of getting together with people for Pokemon X & Y, Animal Crossing, and Smash.

  26. i miss handheld gaming a lot, i feel like a lot of game devs aren't really making the switch (hah) from handheld to console gaming very gracefully at all harvest moon, rune factory, pokemon, animal crossing...they're all so meh ;__; stop making things in 3d....i want tiny graphics again....

  27. I wouldn't mind a break from the Metroids either. Thanks to a lot of the Prime oriented games we've been introduced to a variety of other races that help to expand the universe beyond just Samus and the threat of the Space Pirates. It might be a nice change of pace to tackle on challenges beyond what has been Samus' primary objective throughout the series. Races/Characters Luminoth Ylla Ing (though gone now) Phrygisian (Rundas' race) Vhozon (Noxus' race) Diamont (Spire's race, though mostly extinct) Enoema (Kanden's race) Kriken (Trace's ra

  28. No more Metroids for the mainline 2D series is fine, tho they'll likely still have presence throughout the Prime sub-series and other things, but they don't need to be in everything. Same with Ridley who I'd be fine with just living on in Smash at some point if nothing else. Samus can take breaks, but she's too prolific to ever retire permanently, methinks. Even if ending with Dread meant no more mainline 2D, we would still get other kinds of games, but yeah. Honestly, I would prefer her exploring more non-Federation missions. The Federation I would argue has

  29. Some new tidbits from Sakamoto in the first 4 minutes of the video. Some of them you may already know in that timeframe if you really been following the development of this game but as I said there some new aspects you may not know.

  30. I have to talk to someone. I'm speedrunning the Champions' Ballad DLC to get some captures for a video I'm making. I blew my entire inventory fighting the guardians for Mipha's trial. Just before landing the final hit on the final guardian, a blood moon brought all of them back. That is all.

  34. It's a slight critique. As I said I love the simple look on the 3DS but on Switch it just sort of look at out of place. Yes, they could be playing a early build. They did mentioned before the gameplay it is, which I am shocked. This game comes out less than 4 months away. I highly doubt this is a early build and this game won't see anymore small updates. I will accept as is at launch, just a observation.

  35. Pretty good direct! - Smash Character reveal: Not surprised that it's Takken character - Metroid Dread look pretty sweet. I can't believe this is finally exists. 🤯 - New WarioWare on Switch?! HELL YEAH! Though, IDK how I feel about having to control characters to play all the micro games. :-/ The multiplayer looks like it could be a ton of fun. - LoZ G&W: I kind of expected this. Nice to see it has more content than the SMB on, though it really makes me wish the SMB G&W had SMB2 (USA) and/or SMB3 -Advance Wars 1 &2 remake. Nice! I know fans are gonna

  42. What Kezay points out with Nintendo and having their time table with console gens is accurate. Nintendo always beat to their rhythm of their own drum, even to their determent sometimes; like the Wii stalling out in its later years and insult to injury, Wii U did them no favors either. This is typical Nintendo ups and down, they are currently riding higher than they ever did with Wii popular with the Switch. And that what takes me to Ridley Prime, it's a matter of when not if (so the rumor of when this new revision Switch before E3 is not the end all of be all) so they have to be delicate in ho

  43. Yes. For me at least it's not so much a question of will it ever happen but does it need to happen (the Switch is still doing fine as is and Nintendo more often than not does fine without bowing to those investors), and if nothing's shown prior to June 15th which wouldn't surprise me either, will just be seeing the goalpost moved to when people think it'll be shown like it's been for years now with the rumors. I'm just beyond sick of hearing about it which is why I'm often more dismissive of it now, but if it happens it happens.
