This is a reminder that Samus is canonically an emotionally unstable woman of average height who is crippled by extremely severe daddy issues and a near-Elektra Complex for her surrogate military father figure. She also has memory problems that manifest in an inability to keep track of the fact that her arch nemesis' primary gimmick is coming back to life after he dies, rendering her helpless upon seeing him until her male friends rescue her.

This is the end of your friendly reminder of Nintendo canon.
>>
Other M is gonna be retconned or BTFO canon-wise soon.

Friendly reminder to OP that we do not like to remember that Other M exists.

Even though Fusion was weak I could buy the Samus/ Adam relationship there.

>Samus decides to just hit the self destruct button, a reasonable conclusion
>Adam, being a perfect military mind (lel) and a super computer, tells her she's working too hard and that she can just throw BSL at SR388

Samus gets to continue being the space badass and Adam gets to be the genius that points her gun in the right direction. Both are made to be semi-competent without the other being demeaned for it.

As far as I know it started out that Samus is capable of sabotaging their entire plans of galactic domination because they keep putting in tubes that can conveniently morph ball into. Then it expanded into making fun of the fact that almost every endevour they work towards only serves to kill and maim all their own people.

just to be clear, I didn't like fusion either, because I didn't like the idea of Samus being part of the military

the suit that absorbs the life-energy of enemies and can protect against superheated conditions, and move at full speed underwater, and many other insanely powerful things doesn't sound like government issue, certainly not the sort of thing they would hand out to a bounty hunter or a non-officer

it makes more sense for her to have magical bird-technology and exist on the fringe of civilization...as a BOUNTY HUNTER

so both games, fusion, and other M, fucked up her character

and prime had decent lore but lots of internal inconsistencies, and the typical "I have no fucking idea what I'm writing' problem of phazon being both the cause and the result of everything
>>
>>256671650

In her suit, yes, but she mysteriously grows a lot taller when her suit is on. Scale is a fucking mess in Other M, honestly, since Anthony actually shrinks when he puts his armor on. Comparing characters' heights is practically pointless.
>>
If we are talking about worst Nintendo fanbase I would say its FE, the fucker do nothing but bitch about everything, at least Metroid fans talk about what they want and the only game that is universally hated on /v/ out of the whole franchise is Other M
>>
>>256672175
Wait a minute in Fusion Samus was still a bounty hunter and she got injured while working on the bounty. Yeah Samus took a few things on loan from the GF but she was still her own entity.
>>
>>256668743
The armor is alright for the most part.
>>
>>256672158
Yeah, it was actually painful watching the interactions between her and the AI after playing Other M, I downloaded last week the game for the VC and when she talked about Adam I whinced because what she said and what the game showed us was completely disconnected, hell even how the AI acted was different as fuck

It's the Samus fanbase that is so terrible.

They are pretty shitty when they complain about their lack of games, when they had an absolute fucking insane overabundance shoved down everyone's throats for two full generations. Fucking 3 Metroid Primes (with remasters for 2 of them), a handheld Metroid Prime spinoff, a pinball spinoff, another full 3D game, and two 2D games.

Not going to forget what greedy pieces of shit they were for screaming about needing another Metroid Prime and pissed that DKCR was getting a single fucking sequel a generation later, while MP got a full trilogy and then some.

And they're pretty annoying in Smash threads too. Like, fuck, if it isn't huge arguments over Ridley, it's about how underrepresented Metroid is, as if a game series lauded for an atmosphere of isolation and exploration has a rich, well-loved cast of characters to draw from.

>I ask Tanabe if the fact that Samus is female changed his approach to how she interacted with that world, and he reponds that while they were careful about the way they animated her, it wasn’t specifically because she was female but more that they were reticent to “simply make her feel powerful by using powerful looking or barbaric animations.”

>“Through the discussions with Retro,” he says, “we came up with keyword ‘elegant’. She’s beautifully elegant, but also powerful.” Tanabe demonstrates what he means by suddenly grabbing his translator by the collar, pantomiming a hand-gun to the translator’s head, and explains that one of the scenarios they ran through with co-creator Sakamoto is how Samus would react to a Space Pirate taking someone hostage.

>“What we heard from him is that she would not yell ‘hold on!’ She wouldn’t show any emotions at all, she’d just bring up her gun and hit the pirate with a head shot.” Tanabe loosens his grip on the surprisingly unfazed translator and brings his fingers in one slow sweep up to his own head, and with a verbal ‘bajoooom‘ fires dead-eye, leaning back in slow motion, his hands showing us the arc and splatter of Space Pirate viscera spilling from the cap of his skull. “She’s very calm, very professional in killing. She doesn’t show any emotions on the surface, but she’s very passionate inside her.”

Holy shit. Kensuke Tanabe fucking knows what Samus is all about.
>>
>>256672539
The thing is that it really should not have been hard. I can buy that out of Samus's entire career of blowing shit up she'd eventually run into at least one person she really really respects. So when MOM said it was going to explore their relationship I figured they were going to show us why. So what did we learn about Samus's and Adam's past and why Samus respects him so much.

>Well he called her "princess" after she acted like a brat while enlisted
>He let his brother blow up one time and didn't show a lick of emotion

That's it? That's the mystery? And then the entire mission all he does is treat her like she's a pain in the ass and shot her in the back for no reason. So...why does she respect him more than anyone else again?

The androgyny of Samus' armor was one of its most defining traits from her first appearance onwards. I think that's something that should be preserved in successive designs- whether or not the audience is actually surprised, it's still rewarding to see Samus come out of her suit at the end and feel like you're being let in on a secret.

Man, they really need to give Metroid back to Retro some day. Maybe not now, but eventually.

I really like their justification on why Samus is a female; they wanted to have a powerful character without resorting to over the top strong animations.

That's why people hate Other M? Then they're just a bunch of crybabies.

The premise of the game was to make a different approach to the Metroid series, if that means actually giving a shit about characters emotions since they're humans after all. It's natural they made Samus like that since she's a woman and had a very rough childhood.

Next time you fagets will bitch about how made Link talk, Fox missing his dad or Mario show his love for Peach.

In Fusion she's hired to protect scientists doing research when she is attacked by the X. The X takes over her body when she's flying her ship causing it to crash into an asteroid field.

They rescue her from the escape pod and surgically remove her suit, give her a Metroid vaccine to save her life and then loan her a ship when the Station researching her infected suit goes dark. They hire her to investigate why the station went dark. It's never implied she's a Federation operative, merely that she is working for the Federation on contract.

I'm going to imagine that it was Sakamoto's retarded idea to have Samus actually be enlisted, and the writer subverting Sakamoto's intentions by making it deliberately ambiguous.

It's part of my on-going headcanon narrative where Sakamoto is Japanese George Lucas and always had terrible ideas which were salvaged by the developers, and the moron in the director's chair ended up with all of the credit.

I agree that the bottommost one is excessive and makes her codpiece look like a thong, but I don't think repeating V shapes on the torso are necessarily feminine. The Federation armor in Prime 3 had something similar, and it was still pretty masculine.

So it's Rosalina's fault for just existing, rather than the Daisyfags for throwing a tantrum? lel

>>256674892
You mean the ones done in response to all the Daisy shitposting? Let's just be honest here, they are the ones who started it and contributed to it. The Rosalinafags then responded.

Because as far as they knew no human was going to use the armor that was reserved for the ultimate warrior of their own race, why do you think they gave her the original power suit? The legendary armor was locked in the holy palce of their kind, the only thing it changed was the helmet since she did not have a beak or horns

When ZSS, we had shitposting threads for a whole month, sometimes 5 at the same time.

The Shiek thing is recent news, give it 2 or 3 days and it will calm down, because no fanbase is as terrible as the Metroid fanbase.

The only rival was when Rosalina was revealed, but it wasn't even close to as cancerous as Samus threads.

Both cause the same shitstorm. People are afraid that their favorite characters aren't getting in, because of filler shit like the announced newcomers so far. That's why you see people being happy that other characters get deconfirmed.

Yes, haven't you ever played a Metroid game? It always goes pew pew pew and shoots little slow moving pellets like Megaman.

Top 5 worst Nintendo fanbases

-Fire Emblem
-Pokemon
-Zelda
-Metroid
-Smash
>>
>>256675179
You'll never get through to them. They'll continue to live in their persecution complex world where Rosalina getting in Smash or being an extra in the post-game is on par with being shoved maliciously down people's throats.

Meanwhile Rosalina fans don't start shit on the fact she doesn't have her own game, when Captain Toad is getting one, or that DK, Yoshi, Wario, and Luigi all got their own games spun off from Mario being the main character in their first appearances.
>>
>>256675564
Smash should be higher, like way fucking higher, hell put it in a tier of its own
>>
>>256674874

>>256675564

There are only like 10 relevant fanbases anyway.

You don't see many The Legendary Starfy fans around.
>>
>>256675713
I didn't rank them in any order.
>>
>>
>>256675380
That is part of what happens when any new character gets in a Smash game. The Daisyfags started shitposting right away, the Rosalinafags laughed in their faces, and the Peachfags just kinda sat on the side contributing.

I think that should prove my point about the Mario fanbase.

>Smash fanbase
The worst assholes and casuals you will meet. Also cause the most drama to any fanbase.

>Mario
Normalfags and loud autists treating Mario as a deep game. It's actually cringe-worthy to listen about any Mario discussion.

>Donkey Kong
Chill fanbase until ruined by the Dong meme. Now it's just Retro & Rareware infighting.

>Yoshi
Can't be taken seriously anymore with the amount of autists and Yoshi being sold as a toddler game now. Only popular for the "haha" and "Playing Yoshi makes you gay" meme.

>Wario
Underrated, but now being used as a fart joke and greedy jew developer. Also spawned pedofuckers.

>Zelda
Fanbase fights itself for any silly reason. Ranges from Normalfags, Autists, Waifufags, Fedorafags and Nostalgiafags.

>Metroid
It's either Prime and 2D infighting, Sakamoto bitching and people sexualizing Samus too much. Doesn't help that the Smash fags treats the Metroid fanbase like shit, because of their Ridley obsession.

>Mother
Closet harmless Pedos and people praising Itoi as a god.

>F-Zero
Has a deep hatred for Nintendo, and hate Smashfags for wanting F-Zero be turned into a beat-em up. Grumpy Grandpas.

>Pokemon
Like Zelda, tons of infighting, boogeyman calling and autism. Also spawned a new sub-genre of furries.

>Kirby
Chill fanbase. Has a rare case of infighting when comparing about which Kirby game is the best. Sound cringe-worthy when they talk about "lore".

>Star Fox
Beyond help. It's either gay furry shitposting, talking about Krystal and people just wanting the series to be rebooted again. It's the worst fanbase so far, despite Pokemon and Zelda being bigger. They hate themselves.

>Fire Emblem
Used to be a chill fanbase with a little bit of waifu shitposting. Now after their latest game came out, tons of infighting, waifu shitposting became stronger and the Smashfags talking shit about them.

I can agree with this to an extent. The camera itself wasn't the problem, it was the linear level design and the stupid doors that keep forcing you in one direction. You know in addition to the other stupid stuff like playing Where's Waldo and movement in a 3D plane being bound to the d-pad. Open the map up, make the scanning not stupid, and refine the controls i.e. a better way of using missiles and the only thing you'd have left to worry about is the writing. Which never should've been an issue since I was under the impression it was understood that the actual plot only serves as the framework for why Samus is there but for the most part it's in the background.

As linear as Fusion was, at least you still had to explore the sector you were limited to. Other M is basically just a straight line.

This in particular pissed me off, since scanning is easily my favorite mechanic in the whole franchise. Honestly, how does one fuck up scanning that badly when it was such a piss easy process?

Other M's biggest sin was ignoring Samus' adopted Chozo family and saying that Adam was her "father figure." Old Bird, Grey Voice, and etc raised her from the age of three to around 13-14 or so. Does that not count for shit? Also Samus shares actual DNA with the Chozo.

Metroid is ruined forever. Even if they literally retcon everything about Other M, it will remain a black mark over the franchise, and Nintendo for defending it.

There's enough there that any half competent writer could bullshit together personality for her better than what was in Other M, but that's not saying much. Metroid never needed much story or characterization.

That said, the Samus I imagined was a cold, detached individual with very little feeling of shared humanity due to being raised by aliens.

I knew Nintendo would never make a character like that, though.

You can call me ACfag if you want, but the facts don't lie. Other M retconned everything.

Go on, prove me wrong.

Another bullshit thing pulled out of Sakamoto's ass. This is just like him saying that in Zero Mission the legendary powersuit was not a new suit but came from Samus reconnecting with her Chozo roots and calming her emotions (REALLY, IT TOOK HER THAT ENTIRE SNEAKING LEVEL TO CALM DOWN!?) to fully manifest her suit.

Sakamoto is full of shit in general.

It just makes no sense at all within the context of the game because X-Parasites cannot interact with Samus' genome, which was the entire point of putting Metroid DNA in her in the first place due to Metroids being created by the Chozo in order to be the perfect predator for X.

I really wish that Yokoi hadn't died in that car crash because if he was still producing he wouldn't put up with Sakamoto's bullshit ideas for where Metroid ought to go.

This is your daily reminder that Super Metroid was the greatest accident in gaming history and was almost absolute garbage because Sakamoto was supposed to work on it but was too busy at the time and that is the only reason he didn't drive it into the ground. If Sakamoto is involved in whatever the next Metroid game is then Nintendo is clearly losing its collective mind, the man cannot be trusted.

When will it be our turn?
The brutal learning curve and difficulty turned A LOT of people off from F-Zero, but it still deserves a new game.

He's a specific singular guy who trolls Metroid threads by acting in the manner described by the chart. If you try to argue with him, he'll just accuse you of being a rabid nintendrone, and then start trying to accuse you of stuff that was posted by other people in other threads. He's so notorious for trolling threads that people often refer to any troll in a Metroid thread as ACfag, even when they aren't using his particular methods. Also, his name is short for Armored Core fag, as he used to post Armored Core images. He'll still occasionally reference From Software from time to time.

My best case scenario for the next Metroid.

>Prime 4
>completely new game
>no matter which one is chosen, it'll be a GAME first and foremost, and focus very little on distracting sexual fanservice

Worst case scenario

>Metroid: Other M 2
>Samus does nothing but pose in a bikini the whole game, ala Dead or Alive Volleyball
>fanbase praises it like the second coming because they want to spite feminists
>Metroid officially dies
>>
>>256689901
I like how apparently the suit doesn't protect her from shots she's not aware of in Other M, going by that one cutscene where Adam shoots her in the back. That literally invalidates the entire point of a suit of armor.

Wait, what? She reconnected with her chozo roots by taking the same test she presumably took to get the first suit. At least, that seemed to be the implication in the game.

>>256690302
>Samus does nothing but pose in a bikini the whole game, ala Dead or Alive Volleyball

That kind of game would be much less offensive than Other M.

Feminists love Other M because it turned naratively turned Samus from a hard-boiled space cowboy with inner monologues and minimal outward conversation to a bitchy WASP with daddy issues (read: Tumblr).

I somehow doubt that most feminists agree with that statement.

Because y'know, no one really wants to be associated with Dobson.

You are aware that Sakamoto only did one fuck up, do you?

Even under Gunpei Yokoi, he was mostly responsible of Metroid and Super MEtroid and did on his own Zero Mission and Fusion and was even content advisor during for the whole Prime series.

>distracting sexual fanservice

You are a tremendous fag, partly for insinuating Metroid has had ' distracting' sexual fanservice in previous games, and partly for giving a shit about fanservice in the first place.

>>256691465
Remember the good old days of Jack Thompson when violence in vidya was the worst we had to worry about?

>>256691593
>You are aware that Sakamoto only did one fuck up, do you?
He only fucked up one game. But he did that by making a metric fuckton of fuck up decisions.

>>256691717
Am I the only one that admires Sakamoto for his dedication in bringing his shitty vidya waifu to life? The only one that rivals him is that guy that invented FFXIII's Lightning.

Sex fanservice in Metroid was always a bad thing, dating all the way back to the first one. Samus should've been a female character who didn't need to flash her tits and ass. The game should've been the most important.

This is why I regard Metroid Prime as the highest point of the series, because it had zero fanservice.
