You miserable cunts, this series is gonna die and it's all your fault.

I actually really enjoyed this game. The parry system was something new and different and at least added some sort of strategy on basic enemies and using the circle pad for aiming was such a nice feature. Music was amazing, added boss fight was great and added a little characterization. Chozo lore was interesting for those wondering what's next.

All around solid game. Not amazing, but I honestly don't understand how people could think it's shit.

Easton Green

You do realize the reason no one rips on Donkey Kong is because those post 64 games are those dumbass Bongo Drums that no one considered actually main entries in the DK series. Anything that looked like a glorified mini-game was not something the fans treated seriously. Now if Nintendo or Retro made a main intended entry and that one indeed was horrid to play through? Then you'd have an argument.

No seriously if you believe those numbers, you are retarded. Those numbers don't even make sense if you look at the Amazon 2017 video game list. No way it sold only 150K and beat AC: Origin on PS4.

Granted Amazon doesn't give numbers and doesn't represent everything, but most everyone does their shopping there so the general trend should be indicative.

first game in a long while where Samus is actually given dignity and isn't just a piece of tits and ass to be ogled over
gameplay could've been improved somewhat, but considering previous attempts at reviving Metroid, it was a godsend
actually ends up with a worse attach rate than Metroid: other M, all because Samus isn't a piece of meat being told what to do by a man

And Sup Forums will claim that they don't love Other M.hah!

If Metroid M and federation Farce wouldn't have been the ultimate piieces of hsit they ended up being, the numbers would easily been higher.

Newsflash, Metroid fanbase has likely shrunken since the latest big entry (Other M), due both to lack of awareness and not enjoying the last one (Federation Force) to be sure.

In Japan at least, it sold through 70% of its sell-through rate at launch so at least that's good news (since Japan historically has never shown interest in Metroid).

LOOK AT THIS
LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS

If metroid prime 4 gets canceled before its ever demo'd, don't be surprised. And even if it launches some day, don't be surprised if it goes full Wind Waker with every single corner cut and filled to the brim with low quality assets, filler content, etc

Zelda doesn't fair that much better when you consider platform install bases.

The only real breakout games are Ocarina, Twilight Princess and soon to be Breath of the Wild.

They probably make enough money off Mario, its spinoffs, Pokemon, Kirby and Animal Crossing to be able to make whatever they want.

Then there's all the profit that they made off Wii Sports and the Wii Fit series of titles.

You guys claim to like good video games. Well, if Samus returns is a good game, why did nobody buy it?

You guys are always the first to tout sales numbers of the Switch and Zelda and Mario and talk about how you guys actually support games. Yet when it comes to a game without mainstream appeal and sex and tits everywhere, it's left to rot and die.

This just proves to me that Nintendo fans don't care about gameplay.

but according to your chart, even triforce heroes, the literal "what?" zelda game, sold as many as metroid prime 3
and wii had one of the biggest mainline console install bases after PS2, and most people were using a PS2 as a DVD player for the same price, so Wii arguably had the biggest install base of all time considering rate of sales (yeah yeah ps1 sold more 1m more in the course of 12 extra years)

Metroid has been an extremely underperforming franchise for nintendo since the SNES era. Only Metroid Prime (1) had any significant sales at 2.82 million, and then metroid prime 2 dropped all the way down to 1.14 million

This is the way I see it: every day on Sup Forums I see Switch fans talking about how other companies are bad because their games barely have 1% attach rates on even their biggest games. You see regular threads about making fun of Horizon fans for only selling a couple million on a system of 70 million. So for them to turn arouund and let a game like this die miserably is hypocritical.

And I'll bet you anything that, should Metroid Prime on the Switch be good, it'll not even break 1% attach rate. It'll be the first Switch title to not even break 100k sales. You know how I know this? because if it's good, that means it won't just mindlessly sexualize samus every 5 seconds, and that's considered SJW shit according to Sup Forums.

Meanwhile movie games like Xenoblade sell millions solely because they have tits in them. No gameplay whatsoever.

Nobody knew that Zelda II would become the black sheep of the series back then as it was just starting out.

That's not even remotely fair.

Nevermind that you're your comparing ratio of a console that has only been out for 10 months in the market with a game at launch vs a console that had already been out a year with many more consoles sold and Metroid Prime 3 was just coming out then.

Of course people will jump in for a launch game that got a Super Bowl commercial and of course general audience who bought the Wii (families and elderly) will ignore a space FPS adventure game which got very little advertising.

zelda is nintendo's third best selling franchise of all time

Get with the times gramps.

Wii Series titles overtook Zelda long ago and did it in a much shorter amount of time.

It'll be a long ways before Zelda will be able to climb back into 3rd (unless you consider the Wii branding of game titles dead in which case I suppose you have a point).

Even then, people are surprised that Metroid is getting a resurgence when Fire Emblem sold even less than it and was even more on death's door nail until Awakening.

Why does Sup Forums like to shit on Metroid and its fans? Easy target or something? The series has some missteps like Other M and Federation Force, but is otherwise a consistently terrific series that receives tons of critical acclaim and a passionate fan following alike. The games inspired a whole subgenre that is still receiving support from indies and professionals. Perhaps it didn't inspire it all alone, but you can't ignore that Metroidvania is a known label even if you hate it. The series doesn't have the same wide appeal of Mario, Pokémon, Zelda, et cetera, but Nintendo still chooses to support the series.

Is it really worth making fun of a series and its fans just because they aren't as numerous as those if more popular series? It doesn't deeply bother me of course, but it would definitely be nice to talk about the series without all the shitflinging. So again, I have to ask: Why does Sup Forums like to shit all over Metroid and it's fans and act like the series has never been a success or of any merit whatsoever?

Nah, not really. The only difference is the fact that for power bomb jumping you don't need any kind of wind-up, you just position correctly and drop the bomb. Different start-up, same end result.
Also, power bomb jumping is more restrictive compared to shinesparking because when shinesparking, almost any surface can be used to maintain/build up speed if you know what you're doing. Power bomb jumping is 100% limited by the amount of ammo you have.

Cooper Wright

the applications aren't the same
Power bomb jumping is literally a stand-in for shinesparking. The applications are the exact fucking same. Both perform the same thing: a sudden burst of speed to circumvent obstacles. It's a fact that power bomb jumping is far more limited than shinesparking because you can perform finite power bomb jumps. You can - environment permissive - perform infinite shinesparks.

First of all, we don't know how much Samus Returns sold. 300k comes from VGChartz, which might as well be "I pulled this number out of my ass."

Secondly, a Wii game with Other M's budget needed to sell way more units to make a profit as opposed to a comparatively cheaper 3DS game. You can't say two games that sold the exact same amount of units are an equal success, for example.

Bentley Russell
Bentley Russell

Nintendo neglects it because it doesn't make billions of dollars like Pokemon and Mario

If a game makes 3 times the sales and is a failure, why would they be excited with a game barely having 1% of an attach rate? I guarantee you they did not make their money back. If they did they would've advertised it more, instead of letting it die in obscurity.

Nintendorks just don't like the franchise. If it isn't Mario, Zelda, Smash or Pokemon they never really gave much fucks about it to begin with. The other franchises only matter when it comes to Smash. This is the true mentality of Nintendo "fans" in actuality. They pretend to love everything Nintendo put out but Star Fox, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Metroid and other shit is actually B tier at most and these "fans" only pretend to give a shit. Many probably never even played a non Zelda, Mario, Smash or Pokemon franchise in their lives.

The amiibos they made for it were better than the game itself. Adding Ridley doesn't technically fuck up the timeline of their next encounter, but it still seems silly.

They made everything too colorful and tacky because they wanted it to 'pop' in 3D. And it does succeed at that since plebs say how colorful it is. Except the original and AM2R were dark and solemn. you were running deeper and deeper into a chasm that hadn't been explored for eons and led to the deepest depths of the planet, where the metroid queen lived. People like KingK have explained it better though.

Do not like the counter mechanic. Every enemy in the game feels deliberately placed (as opposed to just existing in the world going about its business like in old games) for counters. Also reminds me of OM, too many echoes of OM

Look at BOTW, especially Zelda bending over or the gerudo. Look at the porn threads if you don't believe me.

Last time I checked a few pictures =/= porn dump, child.
When those few pictures are enough to skew discussion entirely, yes it is still a porn dump. Infact, I can safely say that pornography is one of the worst things to ever happen to video games. Sexualization in general was a mistake, and it's why I advocate completely removing it from all video games. Look at Metroid. The more sex you threw in, the worse the games got.

Every Hollow Knight and Shovel Knight thread has copious amounts of porn in them too, are they fanservice games now as well?

Jacob James

Maybe I would have bought it if it was actually a new game. I'm not paying to play a game I've already played, especially when I'd just finished playing AM2R right before they announced this, which is probably the only reason this game even exists.

this is the 3rd or 4th time i seen a VGChartz thread pertaining to SR

1. That's not true. Even the threads that have porn in them will have discussion continue away from it, whereas in Metroid it never happens unless you're specifically talking about a good Metroid game, and even then the Other M taint has to be fought at every corner.

2. The games aren't actively encouraging it with lewd disgusting fanservice, so the fans making it is far less in number.

I thought it was tasteful, even the Ridley part. Loved the X stinger at the end (Something AMR2 completely ignored). Aions didn;t feel too instrusive though the counter sure did...hope they leave it out of the next game (But keep the aiming)

Chozo memories felt like Mercury Steam fanwanking though. But I guess it finally gives them an excuse to set a game after Fusion for fucking once.

Nicholas Moore

Fans = The Developers intentions
Zelda's barely in the fucking game, people make porn of her because people always make porn of female video game characters because they're horny fucks, regardless of if they're even sexy or not. I mean for fuck's sake I just saw somebody in the Kirby thread draw lewds of Ado, who's a goddamn polygonal child. Does that mean Hal was trying to make her sexy? Of course not you mong.

News flash! Men find women hot! Wow!

The Fusion tease was cool, I will admit. Although they said outright they had no more remakes planned for Metroid, right? The X cameo was just to confirm the whole "annihilating metroids was a bad idea" thing

Kevin Lopez

actually ends up with a worse attach rate than Metroid: other M, all because Samus isn't a piece of meat being told what to do by a man

I mean, it sold really well by all actual accounts.

Anyone actually believing VGChartz is just fooling themselves. Their methodology is literally just "Asking the channels and comparing against similar games"

They want 2D Metroid to fail so Prime could be the only type of Metroid game we get. It makes me hope Prime 4 flops. They keep stating that Prime 4 will be called Dread and that they will just put Metroid 5 on the 3DS even though this is pretty much the 3DS’s last year.

The difference is that the game constantly makes her out as some kind of dumb waifu. Whether she's crying in one cutscene, or bending over in another. It comes across as sickening.

News flash! Men find women hot! Wow!
That doesn't belong in video games. After Other M, women should no longer be sexualized in this industry. It only leads to trouble.

I've seen anons describe in detail what they want to do to Hornet is pretty mild
And if the game encouraged it, you'd have a point.

Metroid threads discuss things even with the lewd pics, too, idiot.
Is that why you constantly have people spewing memes like "le remodeled shithole" and "mommy milkies"? Come on user, who are you trying to fool? all you have to do is just admit that you don;t like SR because it didn't sexualize Samus enough. You can't just be honest with me?

Anthony Perry

Not only it doesn't fuck up the timeline, it ties Prime and Super together. It was a great addition.

The game was dark because of the hardware limitations. Talks about horror game and genocyde of the species are horseshit that only redditors that unironically follow e-celebs could listen to.

I think you meant: the enemies feel actually alive and threatening like real fauna and predators as opposed to being completely passive and not even registering your presence.

The difference is that the game constantly makes her out as some kind of dumb waifu. Whether she's crying in one cutscene, or bending over in another. It comes across as sickening.

So she picks up a frog and reveals everything that happened to her kingdom and father and herself which had taken an incredible mental toll on her and in your mind that's disgusting and waifu-pandering. Your brain is very strange, it sees something then immediately links it to one of your little pet peeves no matter how hard it has to crush that square shape through the triangle hole. You deliberately see everything as negatively as possible and in your personal filter for the sole purpose of having something to shitfit over. And you've been doing this for SEVEN. STRAIGHT. YEARS,

why should I care about her mental state? She's useless background noise meant to be waifu material , and the game wouldn't even change if you took her out. Emotional tripe like that doesn't resonate with a good game, because a good game can make you feel emotions without a single cutscene, or at least with few cutscenes as possible. I base it on an altered concept of "show, don't tell". If your story needs to show someone crying to get me to care, then you've failed miserably. It's cheap emotional manipulation, and I don't fall for it.

Ian Gomez

I bought it, and still haven't finished it. My biggest problem with it is the parry mechanic.

It really feels like it was only made because, "It'd be so cool for Samus to do that." and from there someone decided, "We can't just use this mechanic at boss fights or rarely, every enemy should have an attack that Samus needs to parry."

It's really fucking annoying to have to keep using it just to fucking survive in the game.

My loyalty is to the gameplay, and I am enemy to any element that attempts to subvert gameplay. Story, pornography, excessive graphics, lazy optimization, you name it. I dislike it all equally. And that's why I take such offense at Other M. Not that I think that "my waifu" was ruined, but rather my "gamefu" was ruined, that's why I was mad. Finally we get a decent, albeit flawed, game like SR, and I genuinely think it deserves better than the horrible fate it got dealt. Yes,you can go on about how it still made Nintendo money and it's technically a success, but how low do you have to go to consider a 1% attach rate successful?

I dislike it because I consider it a detriment to the gameplay.That's why I voice my concerns.

Don't know why people are upset about this.
