  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. I'd definitely pre-order the collector's edition if it were actually AVAILABLE anywhere, but whatever, one way or another I'm gonna get the game anyway and I am psyched to have a brand new 2D Metroid game. It is weird to hear that this will be the end of the Samus/Metroid story, though there's nothing stopping the developers from continuing to make games that take place before Dread—heck we've had four or five Metroid games since Fusion and all of them are chronologically prior to Fusion's events.

  22. i can really only think of like 4 games that looked interesting to me from e3 this year, with one of them being the gimme-pick of botw2, and the other 3 were from devolver....this year felt pretty underwhelming lol literally cannot stop thinking about that botw2 trailer tho and cannot wait to pour over it excitedly for the next however-many-months looking for lore

  23. Amazing post, though it hurts seeing the collector's edition and amiibo pack up there that I can't...seem...to get... ANYWHERE! I'm looking forward to this game so much as I'm very curious how they handle a post Fusion Metroid title considering the implications of Samus' actions in coordination with Adam at the end of the game. I'm also curious as to what they mean by this game being the conclusion of Samus' connection with the Metroids. Granted, it's not like we haven't had Metroid games where the focus wasn't squarely on the Metroids but I'm still interested in what this means

Traffic to Cloudflare from here is going to the Syndey POP, but the route appears to be poked with the current internet provider. Instead of the expected ~30-40 ms latency it would normally take to get there, it's experiencing 800+ ms latency with timeouts and packet loss. https://www.cloudflarestatus.com/

  31. 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.

  32. 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

  37. Videos like that remind me of the whole "this 30 minute meeting could have been an email" type of situation. 9 minutes to explain something that could have taken less than 1 to get across which thankfully I just skipped around the video to get to the point rather than slog through the "history" of the rumors first before getting to what the video is actually covering. Yeah I know, first world problems and all that and this is just the nature of youtuber content these days, but still. Anyway, the wording in the ad is definitely interesting through because of how deliber

  38. I honestly don't think Nintendo understands what made Melee, Melee to its fans and people that still play it. As such, I would not put it past them to patch out a lot of the bugs and glitches if an HD + online version happened. I mean if it's true that they were hoping to bring everyone on that game to Ultimate simply by bringing back all the characters/clones from it that were cut until then (Pichu, Young Link, etc) as well as its own newcomers, then they set themselves up for failure from the start as far as that. It was never about the cast of characters for the Melee players, so much as it

  39. For all I know I could be chasing a red herring. I see that initial shot in the trailer that is so reminiscent of Skyward Sword and so now I'm searching for connections based on that game and I could be completely off base! But I still wanna tug on this thread and see what unravels, lol! I do agree about the islands likely not zipping in and out of time as I personally haven't seen enough to go that route either. But I definitely agree with some theories that there may be some time shenanigans going on in this one. In the game's ending you can see the coloration on th

  40. You don't have to try and top Ultimate (Sakurai knows that), but there's always going to be another Smash, just like how there's always going to be another Mario Kart. This is the undeniable peak though, Sakurai's magnum opus. I've had so much fulfillment from Ultimate, I wouldn't be mad if it was my last Smash game. Depending on the roster/cuts and direction of the next Smash or the one after that, I may skip it. Nothing lasts forever, and if I don't have the same fulfillment with Smash anymore, I'm not obligated to continue supporting it. Mostly speaking in the contex

    that's awesome! Spreading from Virginia all over the world (hehe I missed these emojis) It's pretty cool! My girlfriend and I actually moved January 2020 to Utrecht (really cute smaller city in NL) and so we had a couple months to figure out all the immigration stuff and get settled in before everything went to shit. Then in February of this year we moved to Amsterdam since there's a lot more going on and more of an expat community. It's a really cool and beautiful city, and things are finally starting to get fun now that they've figured out the vaccine situation here and are relaxin

  45. Watching Mario Party Superstars on Treehouse, the Cake and Space boards look way more fun and exciting compared to the boards in the previous Mario Party Switch game - really gives me high hopes that the other boards are equally good as these two in this game 😊 The ones in the previous MP game looked extremely... square,bland, lacking in creativity and pretty boring looking, honestly... These two in the newer game remind me more of like how boards looked on the GameCube and previous titles way back then I’m actually smiling watching this watching them play and h
