Friendly reminder that this games is going to be great in the long term.

Also fun Fact: Retro Studios designed the federation marines

Also this game is apparently taking place between Metroid 1 and Return of Samus
>>
>>323933056
Next Level made good stuff with Nintendo. From the Mario Strikers games to Luigi's Mansion 2 and Punch Out! Wii.
I have faith in them. Fuck the autistic spergs.
>>
NLG have a pretty good reputation for fun multiplayer games, although what we saw at E3 just looked bland and boring. I'm fine with a spin-off (and I don't think Samus should be shoe-horned into it like some people are suggested), I just wished that they had stuck with the old Prime artstyle.

I'm hoping they take the modern shooter approach and you get a random chance of using a really strong weapon or playing as Samus.

An Amazon listing has it as Metroid Prime: Blast Ball only.

Methinks they gutted the main game of FedForce due to backlash and just made it a downloadable multiplayer game, like they should've done from the beginning.

The powerups look temporary and not permanent which is half the basis for Prime games, if not all Metroid in general.

The problem is that Metroid is fucking dead.
When they announced Prime Pinball I wasn't angry at all, because the Prime games were being released and Pinball was simply a particular spin-off.
If FF were released back then, no one would have been this mad about this game, but after all the drought you give us a fucking drop of water?

I really don't see why. When you have a concept, you do it, simply. You don't wait for something else to come up.

Unless nobody actually wants that concept and you'd upset a large and vocal group of people by doing so. All it would've taken was not branding it with Metroid. That would have avoided the backlash.

Except it didn't. There is the Metroid Franchise, whose the art direction is still unknown up until the next game come up, and then there is a the Spin-off, federation force, which get a different design specifically to mark the distinction between the spin-off and the main franchise. This is actually a good thing to do.

You are literally complaining about the wrong material, there.

On a side note, chibi style doesn't prevent sci-fi with fantastical elements.

This is the only way they could have fucked up the idea of an FF spinoff though. I don't see how you're finding this hard to grasp. People who like Metroid don't want it. People who wanted an FF spinoff wanted something better. People who didn't want either, don't care at all.

No, it helps when a franchise stays consistent within it's designs, as it has up until this point.

I like Metroid and I want it. I far better prefer for them to take their time to develop a GOOD, Metroid game with great gameplay and interesting idea, design and story, than for Nintendo to rush a new bad one like Other M.

i am a Metroid fan, I can be patient, I am used to it. and if in the meantime, I can get a fun Spin-off game while I am waiting, then it's all for the better.

People are literally complaining about getting appetizers. This is what is impossible to grasp and make them whining brats.

That's my point: that there is currently no games from the main franchise coming soon IS actually the BEST reason to get a spin-off.

>it helps when a franchise stays consistent within it's designs
It's a spin-off. A spin-off need to have its own identity.

How many people here actually believe this is a main metroid tittle?

>These are entirely different beasts
Yes, that's the point. and this is why the comparison is apt.? FF is a different kind of game than Metroid or MP. that it is reflected with a different looking style is actually a good thing.
>>
>>323952426
>Those were entry and in-development level.
There was enough footage to be damning. It's not going to pull a complete 180 and suddenly get deeper, more challenging and speedier. What we saw is basically what we're gonna get. Slow moving enemies, boring objectives with very little depth and clunky/boring shooter mechanics.
>I far better prefer for them to take their time to develop a GOOD, Metroid game with great gameplay and interesting idea, design and story, than for Nintendo to rush a new bad one like Other M.
Other M wasn't rushed and there is currently ZERO work being done on "real" Metroid. This was confirmed after E3.
> I can get a fun Spin-off game
It's not gonna be fun. It's not even a real shooter, it's just using the Prime 1/2 style of lock-on + strafe combat.
>>
>>323952596
I am not delusional, I am waiting for the game to come out to see if it is good.
>>
>>323933056

I'm pretty sure it's cancelled. We've literally not heard or seen a single thing about it since it was announced at E3.

Would you prefer it if Nintendo made Samus to look more like a Teen titans kawaii anime waifu?
>>
>>323952596
People said the same about Tri Force Heroes. Yet I put more than 70 hours into that (I also got it for reasonable 30€). FF will probably retail for a similar price. Let's wait and see how much cont it will have.

fun fact, it's still haloid related so it's still shit and non-canon

Not really, two level still in development. Not to mention, the players weren't really good either.

Depend of the other missions.

Nothing for the Wii U. that's what was said.

Wait for the game to come out to judge.

Other M retconned so many things that that's the one that should be considered non-canon.
>>
>>323952867
>all the evidence that already exists
Which amount to basically almost nothing. Two levels still in development played by not so good players.

Count on it now. Metroid is a kids series now.

I have, I just can't figure out how you would get 70 hours out of it unless you've beaten the game 4 times over.

even with that artstyle. I would tolerate it as long as we got a classic metroid game gameplay and atmosphere-wise with it

Which aren't going to suddenly stop being shit.
> the players weren't really good either.
They didn't have anything to show off. There's no fucking depth to it.
>Depend of the other missions.
Not really. The core mechanics and gameplay aren't good enough for there to be potential elsewhere with different scenarios.
>Nobody know
They've shown us examples. You're desperately clinging to the fact that it's not finished yet. It's not going to change significantly.
>Have you hold the thing?
Shooters are one of the easiest genres to judge the controls of from the distance. It's slow. The gunplay is clunky and boring.
>Nothing for the Wii U.
No, nothing at all. Period.
>Wait for the game to come out to judge.
I don't need to. I've got life experience, years and years of gaming experience and a pretty heart amount of gameplay footage to apply those things to. I'm sorry you're so consistently stupid/wrong/misinformed that you feel the need to hold back judgement obsessively. I can't tell you the last time I thought a game looked bad from a distance and it actually turned out to be fun. It's not hard to judge.
>>
>>323948449
The thing is, while that looks a little wonky in terms of concept art, I bet it would translate really well to the limitations of the 3DS. Players would probably not even notice how "stylized" it is.

NLG's previously cancelled Metroid game. They quit working on it in favor of Luigi's Mansion DM, after which they went to work on Federation Force.

Do you think Nintendo and NLG expected the amount of backlash they got for the game?

No, at least not NLG. Apparently the negative reception hit them hard and messed with morale or some shit over there. Good.
>>
>>323933056
I still don't get why people are so upset about this. I love Super Metroid and Metroid Prime, but I wasn't really anticipating anything good from the series considering all that they did to to Samus in Other M and ZSS in Smash 4. I'd be too scared it'd be utter shit if it featured Samus anyways.
>>
>>323954854
>the game might actually end up as shit because of the people that joined Metroid with Prime
I mean I'm not one to shit on Primelings because I like both 2D and 3D Metroids, outside of Other M, but come on shooting down something someone has put work into on the spot just isn't right in any situation.
>>
>>323955065
It was just the perfect storm.

The last Metroid game that was deemed good was released in 2007, the one after that was considered the worst in the franchise, then we get half a decade of nothing, and when we finally have something new, it's a weird looking spin off game that doesn't match the tone or atmosphere of any of the previous entries in the franchise.
>>
>>323955597
>that doesn't match the tone or atmosphere of any of the previous entries in the franchise.
That's because it's a spin off.
I mean, shit like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon doesn't follow the same tone or atmosphere as the original Pokemon games and was originally thought of as bad by the fanbase because it was different. Look at it now.
>>
>>323955597
There are some extra flaws that go beyond marketing.

Visually it's just not that good looking. Metroid Prime: Hunters was one of, if not the most technically impressive DS game around. And that was done by NST, which isn't really the biggest developer around. The fact that NLG didn't do much to top it is just a disappointment.

>“If we tried to do this last year without announcing what Bethesda Game Studios was doing [Fallout 4] and said, ‘Oh we’re doing a game and it’s on mobile and it’s called Fallout Shelter,’ we’d probably get lynched, right?’.There would be pitchforks at the gate. ‘That’s not the Fallout we asked for, you bastards!’ But doing it this way, they’re like, ‘I’m getting what I want and oh, by the way, while I wait here’s this other free thing that’s fun to play.” -Bethesda’s VP of marketing, Pete Hines

Whatever you fucking think of Bethesda, this is spot on in my book.

Did anyone give a shit about Metroid Prime Pinball, other than it being a weird novelty? No, because there were like, a ton of Metroid games coming out around the time.
>>
>>323955967
Jesus fucking christ. Metroid is unlike any of Nintendo's other properties, that is the problem here.

These games do not warrant a cutesy spin-off that is clearly aimed toward the younger crowd.

Metroid is not Mario, Zelda, or Pokemans. These are all games aimed exclusively for children. One could maybe argue zelda, but even still.

Metroid had it's own distinct aesthetic and tone. Now it's fucked up.

>Metroid had it's own distinct aesthetic and tone. Now it's fucked up.
So did you freak out at the Nintendoland minigame as well, faggo?
>>
>>323956480
Nope, you mouth-breathing mongolian. I didn't have to pay shit for it, it was a throwaway extra and hoped it was there to show Metroid was still a thing for Nintendo and work on one was in the tubes.

Not that I even played the shit.
>>
>>323956354
>Metroid had it's own distinct aesthetic and tone. Now it's fucked up.
It's a spin off anon, that's like saying every Metroid game after Pinball is now a pinball game.
That said it would be interesting to see in a Prime game as a trap set up by the Space Pirates because they realized she trawls through the tubes.

fun fact: every game is a sidequel cause Nintendo doesn't know wtf to do with it.p
>>
>>323957180
1. Prime was graphically great for its time, so right off the bat, it had a "wow" factor.
2. Even beyond that, Prime attempted its best to translate the Metroid formula from 2D to a first-person 3D experience, and considering its popularity, I'd say they didn't do badly. Federation Force isn't trying to play like a standard game in the series, which leads to
3. Retro didn't trumpet around a weird soccer minigame before showing off the meat of Prime
4. Beyond any of this though, the gameplay we've seen of Federation Force just doesn't look that impressive.
>>
>>323957729
Very true, especially in this case. They don't know how to handle a series with a consistent universe to it. Metroid being pretty much their only series like that.


Metroid Fusion successor never. We will forever be trapped between Super Metroid and Metroid 2 or some shit.
>>
>>323957154
So... I'm not the last one? There are still Nintendolds out there that didn't turn into nintendrones?

To be fair, what do you fucking do after Fusion?

>>323958194
>samus is now a human-metroid hybrid

Oh boy, I don't know, there are a ton of things that could happen, you just have to imagine
>>
>>323958371
It's not just that, she's also wanted by the Federation, isn't she? She blew up a planet.

Any game that takes place after Fusion has to be big, considering its events.
>>
>>323933056
Retro lore isn't canon
>>
>>323958194
She's now hunted by the GFeds for one. This could mean the possibility of them hiring more Bounty Hunters to take her on. Could also be on the side of Sylux if they ever bring him back.
>>
>>323958371
>Enemy of the series is dead
>the pirates that had metroids are dead and so is the entire planet where they were being cloned
>the thing Metroids were created to kill are dead due to the destruction of the planet
>any hope of recreating the Metroids was lost with SR388's destruction
It can't be called Metroid without Metroids. Unless of course you pull some bullshit about Samus being ambushed by the secret faction federation that were cloning for her blood then the whole story just looks retarded because they have to have a way for Samus to escape.

That said wasn't there something about the SA-X resetting her genetic structure when she absorbed it?
>>
>>323958708
If it isn't, what is canon isn't very good.

I mean the Metroid manga is part of Sakamoto's "canon", and have you read that? It's fucking shit.
>>
>>323958561
>She blew up a planet
Which is nothing new, but wasn't it the space station full of Metroids and shit that she dropped to the planet that pissed them off? It's been a while.

Yeah but it wasn't all of the Federation as much as it was a corrupt side of it.
>>
>>323958850
I'd say it could still be called Metroid with no metroids around because samus is now a hybrid of them. Just name it Metroid Legacy or something and done!


Metroids will more than likely always be around though, one way or another.

Are people really complaining about Samus not being in it? It's a first person shooter, you don't even see the character model.

Not even adding the best of the multiplayer elements from Hunters either. Nope, have fucking soccer instead.
>>
>>323958194
new bounty hunter, new galaxy, metroid and x aren't the only spooky thing in space
a spin off that's not OP's but still super metroid style with a new start that's not tied down to story that wrote itself into a corner, which is what ultimately what ruined metroid.
you don't need chozo statues to get upgrades but you also don't need Adam to let you use them, just have it like shadow complex, you find the equipment you need to move forward without it being a big issues story wise and more gameplay wise

>>323959845
There's a PvP mode that isn't Blast Ball you know.
>>
>>323959346
On the contrary I think the idea of a federation trooper game is a fucking neat concept.

Think about ODST, or Republic Commando, or anything like that. Having you play as a grunt instead of the invincible character from the main-line games is something that's worked before for spin offs, you just have to do it right. I don't think they're doing it right though.

>I don't think they're doing it right though.
They're not and that's why there's so much backlash. Can you imagine ODST or Republic Commando taking their respective universes and making them cute to play for the kids?

It's acceptable because it's a spin-off though! Some of you guys are fucking deluded.

Given what we've seen of the controls it'll probably be something like the Prime 2 multiplayer but slightly slower.
