Daily reminder that Metroid is dead.
Japs hate it.
Casuals find it too confusing.
It doesn't make any money in the first place.
Nintendo tried and failed to appeal to non-fans and failed every time.
That interview was a tactic to give you false hope so they can quietly bury the franchise.
It's over. Stop denying it.
>implying the West matters at all to a Japanese company
Well that's a shame. I liked the GBA metroid games.
Which fucking spoiled the shit out of me control-wise so I haven't been able to get into Super Metroid yet.
Wish they'd bring out a SM remake.
>Wish they'd bring out a SM remake.
That wouldn't happen even if Nintendo did care about Metroid. The insane number of autists who jerk Super off as THE GREATEST THING IN CREATION WITH NO FLAWS WHATSOEVER would bitch too loud.
This. But again, not gonna happen. Hell, ESPECIALLY not gonna happen since only about 5 people have even played Metroid II, so it's an even less profitable endeavor.
>takes center position of the Wii U (The Main) version of Smash bros.
>two planned games for the near future
I don't know who are worse. Metroid, F-Zero or Star Fox fans. We should get a poll or something.
>>takes center position of the Wii U (The Main) version of Smash bros.
And? Oh look, Samus is in the center of the image which means... nothing.
>>two planned games for the near future
>actually believing the interview is confirmation of new games
That's just plain naivete. Nowhere do they say "We are making new Metroid games." Again with this denial.
>After we had completed Fusion, one of the staff members approached me with the idea to port Super Metroid.," Sakamoto reveals. "I decided to choose the NES's original Metroid instead."
It seems the original article was deleted for some reason.
>>After we had completed Fusion, one of the staff members approached me with the idea to port Super Metroid.," Sakamoto reveals. "I decided to choose the NES's original Metroid instead."
Let's face it, Metroid died after Super Metroid was released because nothing could ever live up to it. The Prime series was shit and Other M just should never have existed.
Super Metroid is the perfect Metroid.
But that doesn't mean I want it to end there, at least remake Super Metroid on the Wii U or something Nintendo, jeez.
Metroid games are creepy, why not look at a recent game with guy in suit using cool weapons to fight spooky monsters in space for some inspiration?
It's clear nintendo has no fucking clue what to do with it's franchises.
I want Nintendo to sell Metroid to someone who will never let it see the light of the day on a Nintendo console, like Microsoft or Sony. The only people who likes Metroid are sony fans and microsoft fans anyway, so it fits them very well.
>Metroid games are creepy
Behold, the mighty scourge of the galaxy.
>prime is shit
>super is perfect
Not implying. Outright stating. The titular monsters which threaten galactic security and may very well cause the apocalypse... are a bunch of floating jellyfish.
Why did I like this series again? No wonder Japs hate it. Metroid is fucking retarded.
>Daily reminder that Metroid is dead.
Sorry but I think they made ZSS sexy for a reason, not only to sell more smash.
>Metroidfags believe their franchise was part of some kind of trinity of Nintendo
Serious question, why metroidfags believe Nintendo held the Metroid IP like it holds Mario and Link? If that was the case the prime series would not exist.
Are you trying to imply that real-life jellyfish are anything but terrifying? Some species travel in gigantic swarms capable of completely stopping all light from getting to the waters below them. Some species live longer than a hundred years. Others have toxins so powerful that a sting will have you dead in an hour or two with a very short window of time for treatment. Some are literally immortal. Jellyfish are fucking monsters, man.
>I think they made ZSS sexy for a reason, not only to sell more smash
Oh good, a new ZSS-centric game. That will surely save the series.
>Sorry but I think they made ZSS sexy for a reason
Yeah, to appeal to the ronrey otaku crowd.
And guess how much completely changing Samus' image increased sales. Answer: None whatsoever. Japs still don't give a shit about Metroid.
Samus will be cut from Smash 5. Only Zero Suit Samus will remain (and be renamed to Samus). Mark my words, that's going to happen because Zero Suit Samus is the only good thing about the franchise.
We will never get a metroid like fusion or super.
What's the point anymore?
I hate sm4sh samus boobs so much, they are just balloons filled with air instead of actual boobs. You can see the silicone in every shot. I liked Brawl's Samus, her tits were perfect. Now she looks like an american pornstar.
>that one pirate giving his everything to stop the hunter
As if a little explosion ever stopped anybody.
It really is disgusting just how video game-y these video games are. Nintendo should be ashamed.
They need a chozo character, wheter it be rival, mentor, or whatever.
Samus is carrying Metroid franchise by herself, and there is very little room of development for her anymore.
Even other main character centric IP like Mario, Sonic, DMC, Bayo has memorable supporting cast
> Nintendo ain't a creative hack
Take Ninty's cock out of your mouth. Have you seen the last 5 years of mario games? Nintendo is not some golden calf of video games, they can and have made shitty sequels for profit. That dead space metroid game sounds tight as fuck
>Hell, ESPECIALLY not gonna happen since only about 5 people have even played Metroid II, so it's an even less profitable endeavor.
Metroid II was one of the most popular Game Boy games prior to Pokemon. It was one of the games almost everybody with a gameboy in the early to mid 90's owned.
Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. Hate.
You're right OP.
Now go shitpost somewhere else.
But she probably went to Tallon IV with the other Elysian Chozo. Best-case scenario, she's a ghost.
>being this delusional
Holy shit you people are dumb. At no point during that interview did they say "We are making new Metroid games."
It's not fucking happening. Get your head out of the clouds and wake up to reality.
I'm just pissed. At this point, those "f-zero x metroid x star fox" fanatics are just hypocrites.
We are getting a new metroid game. TWO new metroid games because pathetic fucks like them will fight over which ones they want more and "we need to get back to the 2d roots!" or "First person metroid games are more immersive! which is what metroid is all about!"
Nintendo knows how whiny their fanbase is and that's why they're making to games to pelase everyone. But the thing is, they still whine and pretend nintendo never said AFTER FUCKING E3 that they're working on 2 metroid games.
About star fox, it's coming, we know it, miyamoto wants a dev studio to make a star fox game, kamiya has said many times he wants to make a star fox game, blah blah it's all there. And yet, people still complain.
Even after metroid and star fox come out and do meet our/their expectations, they are going to be like "but what about f-zero??!?".
At this point, they dont care about the games anymore, they only want to complain.
"Yeah metroid is dead :^D
Damn i loved that franchise :((
>you will never land on talon iv for the first time ever again :(((
Fuck you nintendo for COMPLETELY ignoring metroid!"
"But dude, look, there is a lot more representation in smash 4 for metroid than in brawl. And there was a sale for metroid games at eshop and metroid was an attraction in nintendo land and they told you that they are "considering" making 2 metroid games as of now! "
"no shut up! metroid is dead lah lah lah i cant hear you!!"
>We are getting a new metroid game. TWO new metroid games
No, we aren't.
>But the thing is, they still whine and pretend nintendo never said AFTER FUCKING E3 that they're working on 2 metroid games.
There's no need to pretend. They never said it. You and all the other delusional retards are interpreting a simple acknowledgment that franchise exists as two new games being in development, when that is not the case at all, AND when analysis and simple logic dictate that Nintendo has no reason whatsoever not to drop the series altogether.
Just get it througyh your thick skull already. Metroid. Is. Dead.
Me too and unlike you, i actually bought and loved f-zero x and gx, you're only riding the "f-zero is so amazing! why is nintendo ignoring it?"-bandwagon. Why? beacuse f-zero gx is one of the very few games in video game history who can be considered perfect, but it sold less than 500k worldwide. That's why. You filthy fucking hypocrite.
Nintendo never said anything about there being more Metroid games in production, yes. That's true.
What they DID say however is that there is a fair bit of interest in developing new Metroid games, both 2D and 3D. I don't remember the exact quote nor do I have a cap of it on hand, but it was definitely something along those lines. Whether they choose to do anything though remains to be seen.
"So it has been a while since we released the last one and we’re having discussions internally about what we can do next. So at this point we have two different types of Metroid games. We have the Prime style of Metroid game and we have the more traditional style of Metroid game. We feel that we do need to take care of both of these styles of play. And the hope is that at some point in the near future we’ll be able to share something about them."
>What they DID say however is that there is a fair bit of interest in developing new Metroid games
>a fair bit of interest in Metroid
What fucking planet do you live on where people are interested in Metroid?
Vague statements that mean absolutely nothing.
>What fucking planet do you live on where people are interested in Metroid?
The planet where Miyamoto himself asked Kotaku to poll their readers on what games they wanted on Wii U, and the number one answer was Metroid.
My favorite video game series was killed off by Japanese George Lucas and a history of poor sales figures. I think I have every right to be a touch miffed.
And I'll bet not a single one of those 706 voters was Japanese. Japs hate Metroid.
Dude, ease up. Metroid is my favourite series of all time too - Super was literally the first vidya I ever played. I'm pissed about the state of the series too, but I'm not loudly proclaiming the end of days and denying when signs point to something possibly happening in the future.
Good, I'd rather the franchise be put to rest than further fucking butchered and destroyed for the sake of an audience that never cared for it in the first place.
>but I'm not loudly proclaiming the end of days and denying when signs point to something possibly happening in the future.
That's because you're a little bitch who takes this kind of shit lying down.
If it's really your favorite series of all time, don't be fucking quiet about it. You're losing something you love. You SHOULD get mad.
I am mad, you stupid cunt. I am PISSED, but there is fucking nothing that I, one man, can fucking do to fix the issue. You are acting like a fucking child throwing a tantrum because his favourite toy broke. Take off your fucking skirt, man up and learn to DEAL WITH THINGS.
>You're losing something you love
But I'm not, because I own all of the Metroid games and can easily replay them whenever I want.
Not him but sorry anon, I'm too tired of it all. I can't get mad anymore, it just keeps happening and will continue to happen and there is nothing to can do about it.
Everything you love will get taken away, either destroyed wholesale or twisted into something it's not. They'll never listen because if they can't have all the money from their wider audience, they'd rather have none at all.
>but there is fucking nothing that I, one man, can fucking do to fix the issue.
Bullshit. I'm sure we could come up with something, ANYTHING to show Nintendo that series is still worth something.
Jesus Christ, Super Metroid purists are disgusting. I thought Other M fanboys were the worst, but I think I hate these guys more now.
Only Metroid fanboys love Metroid, and the japanese market is bigger than the Metroid audience.
Why would Nintendo waste money on a Metroid game when they could make another Mario game instead and get more money than if they made a Metroid game?
>DAILY REMINDER THAT NINTENDO HAS BEEN INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT FOR YEARS

I'm not the one defending the shit company.
>I don't know who are worse. Metroid, F-Zero or Star Fox fans. We should get a poll or something.
Mega Man fans. Especially when Capcom has series that are far deader and treated far worse than Mega Man.
Right now I'm very much enjoying the recently released Smash demo, and looking forward to that game very much.
I'm also really looking forward to Bayonetta 2, a game published by Nintendo which will always be exclusive to the Wii U and
never everleave the platform.
>Franchise started by Platinum and and published by SEGA
>The only reason they're on Nintendo consoles is because they're pissy at SEGA for forcing them to use NEX on the PS3 version
Have fun with your sloppy seconds. Also, SEGA gave a shit ton of dev help to bayo 1, and there was a lot of help from criware as well that SEGA secured due to their ties. Think bayo can still hold up without that?
>The only reason they're on Nintendo consoles is because they're pissy at SEGA for forcing them to use NEX on the PS3 version
Actually no, it's because Sega wouldn't fund Bayonetta 2.
>Have fun with your sloppy seconds.
Of Bayonetta 1? I already played it, but I'll enjoy it again in 60 fps, unlike the PS3 version.
>Think bayo can still hold up without that?
Evidence suggests yes
>there are actually people who believe the majority of the things in this image apply only to Other M
W101 was platinum without the dev help from SEGA.
Bayo and Vanquish are platinum with the dev help from SEGA
I rest my case.
>no news of a Metroid game
>"Well guys, it was nice while it lasted, but Metroid is dead. RIP."

>"Who even cares? They'll never continue the story from Fusion. They'll never make Dread. This game is going to be another disappointment from Nintendo, just like Sticker Star and Skyward Sword. Have fun with Other M 2. Metroid is dead."
>the game releases and is good
>"Wow, Metroid is such a great series. It's too bad Nintendo barely marketed the thing- nobody's going to buy it, because Nintendo doesn't give enough of a shit to advertise Metroid. And of course, they won't make another with sales like this. Metroid is dead."

>"Pshaw, you trust VGChartz? I hate to be the one to break it to you, but Metroid is dead."
What's it like to be a nintenyearold?
I guess it's their best if you like LOLSOEPICRANDUM stuff, but platinum was never about that. It was about style. The fact that you ate up W101 proves my point as well.
Well yes, TW101 was all about style, which was why I ate it up. It was probably their most stylish game.
TW101 > Bayonetta >>> Vanquish >>>>>>>>>>> MGR >>> Anarchy Reigns
Never played Mad World or their DS game, so can't comment on that.
just like how bioware went and made a prothean character, right?
>being a nintenyearold
>Not playing madworld
I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND YOU ANYMORE
Also, you're forgetting the clover studio games.
Also, the correct order is
Vanquish > Bayo >Inf Space > MadWorld > MGR > TW101 > Anarchy Reigns
Including Clover studios, it's
Vanquish > Viewtiful Joe > God Hand > Bayo > Okami > Inf Space > Mad World > MGR > TW101 > Anarchy Reigns
That's the way of it, faggot.
I'm just trying to be realistic. There is no reason for Nintendo to continue the series. If you can't see that, you are, in fact, delusional.
BULLSHIT ME 2 explained those statues were a different species.
Mad World had 0 appeal to me because it didn't look stylish.
You have pretty shit taste in Platinum games, and I'm guessing you never played TW101 by the way you're acting. I can at least admit I never played Mad World or the DS game.
I just told you the reason why it was a good section. It increases the sense of scale on the battlefield without changing the gameplay up to compensate. It allows for a continued increase in the escalation of the conflict that you're facing, without forcing you into a situation where you're no longer playing the same game.
All day every day faggot.
It mostly relies upon the fact that they understand how much of a crazy bullshit ride their on from MGS and how they play with that.
What the fuck am I talking about, a Nintenyearold would never understand that.
>Daily reminder that PBBBBBBT PBBBBBBBBT PBBBBT
Great thread, OP.
>A giant robot that looks like the platinum building with the platinum logo is hidden inside the planet
>This is good plot. In any day. In any age.
Dude, you'd have a tough time getting shit like that by during the time of excuse plots.
>>I'm a sega fan.
Every fucking time
But Bayo isn't plat's best.
Vanquish is objectively Plat's best.
And it's not about what console it's on. It's about the weight of the game.
And W101 is so far from the best, that only people who are weighting the game based upon which console it is would think it's the best.
Thus, if you think W101 is plat's best, you are most likely if not definitely a nintenyearold.
Can you stop saying that stupid word for one reply?
Looks like we can have a good argument here but everytime you say that i feel like we are on a videogame forum and if it doesnt matter about what console is on then theres no need for it.
If you want to tlak about weight then Bayo or W101 ar emo qualified for Plats best, Vanquish is an amazing game that i had lots of fun with but content wise its not even close to bayo or W101, the game is fast shooting action and fuck man its super fun but its quite short and the only thing you have besides that are the challanges, while W101 and Bayo have challanges mid game, extra items, new unlockable characters and secret bosses.
(Vanquish Challange 6 is not a secret boss)
