Miyamoto's Wii U wish list includes Metroid

Postby illage2 » 09 Jul 2012, 06:03

I like the Metroid Prime Series. I prefer Metroid Gmes to be FPS games.

The original Metroid Prime wasn't an FPS, being focused around exploring and puzzle-solving (and a bit of platforming) as much as shooting. Further down the series the games got more FPS-like, and therefore worse.

GNamer, for Nintendo talk.

Make Metroid more like Dead Space, and ACTUALLY show off what the GPU can do then I'll be happy. I want to see that tessellation unit, and Open GL 4.1 features at work! :)

Yes please to both! Get Retro on a new Prime-esque Metroid and the StarFox 64 team on a follow-up, stat!

Blaspheme! I couldn't stand the exploration, atmosphere and general excellent of Metriod to become a boring pile of bore like Dead Space. Keep Dead Space as Dead Space and make quality Metroid games like Prime! There's nothing else quite like a Metroid at it's best, I feel anyway! Making it a dull, linear third-person shooter would be the a crime against gaming.

I was thinking of making it a survival horror/adventure game. Metroid needs an M Rated game

It's in the first-person, and you shoot things... Quite a lot if I remember correctly. It's an FPS. Just not a traditional FPS.

As Balla...

In fact, I found some shooting in Prime pretty awful. Hammering 'A' and strafing whilst perpetually locked on meant that shooting was sometimes an unpleasant break in the exploration and platforming. More emphasis on action and exploration rather than shooting please.

I get your point, but it's not a true FPS, much like Fallout 3 isn't. First Person Adventure is what Nintendo coined it as.
let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little f**ked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

Aye. I think FP games have branched off into sub genres. A traditional Metroid would really suit the gamepad, ditto a Star Fox. We haven't actually had a proper Star Fox since 64 have we. There is a lot of potential for that series. Well, and Metroid too. Let's see if Nintendo can bring us something special.

Wii U seeming more appealing to anyone yet?

Its always been appealing to me

F-Zero and Star Fox, i need those games, I really hoped they would come out on the Wii, although I understand the technical limitations.

You know I bought the second prime game, but i never finished it, was I the only one to find it lonesome and a little boring? I think they can marry action and puzzle solving exploration.

Would most Wii U owners not want more than 2 games?

I second that. 1 and 3 were great. 2 was weak in my opinion.
