what i have said before about metroid revolution

It sounds as if they have parts planned in third person without the suit.  Likely flying or stealth/undercover missions.

I just hope the video we saw is very represenative of how it will look.  Echoes looked better than that tech demo they showed.  I think this is a very good move though, Nintendo needs a few killer titles to release at launch, and they dont get much bigger than Metroid.  Sounds like Retro is pretty optimistic about making the game very pretty, and sound excited about the new controller.  I really hope this is a launch title.

I doubt it -- cuz it's gonna look better.  The Varia Suit model in the teaser was still using the textures from Echoes.

"they have parts planned in third person without the suit. "

so she going to be nude alright better metroid nudty than mario/zelda/DK nudty.

"The 'engine' [we developed] underwent drastic improvements between Metroid Prime 1 and 2, and will see even more between 2 and 3," the company stated. "Our engineers are a very talented and dedicated bunch, and they're constantly looking for ways to make our games run smoother with more detail."

yeah very talented easy when one of them has 3 arms!!!O_O look in np in some issues they the a guy has 3 arm it blowing my mind.

We're definitley going to be flying the ship, it was hinted at E3 what with the new guns on Samus's ship.  I really doubt she'll be going suitless, bu you never know.

LOL

"they have parts planned in third person without the suit. "

Noooo Samus should never leave the suit unless in very rare and special ocasions, like it usually happens. One of her biggest appealing is how her identity is secret, even if we already know she's a woman, shes still a very intriguing character precisely because all we see is the suit and those beautiful eyes... I hope that at least they implement the third person part well, the Metroid series is pretty unique, and although Im willing to accept departures form the series like Hunter or Pinball, I really dont want this to be a gradually "FPS-ation" of the franchise.

Not to mention how most people are surprised she's a woman, believe or not there are many of them out there, its really nice to see their expression when they finally know. (usually when Im finishing MP 1 or 2) "oh my... she's a woman!!??" ^_^ thats priceless.

Flying with the ship is expected, of course, but I don't see anything else besides that...I'm glad they aren't adding crappy 3rd person suit bits...

The quote I like is this one: "We plan on taking advantage of a number of new features in the Revolution, including the controller," which finally proves that the Revolution is more than a new controller...

Their keeping it in first person during the suit parts, but it is possible they will allow for optional third person modes during scenes without the suit.  I don't mind being out of the suit to blend in with the crowd in city where you're collecting a bounty.  It fits more with Metroid than pinball or a death match game that seems to have not recieved the best impressions at E3.

The E3 vid was done on modified Cube hardware even though Reggie claimed it was on REV hardware at the show.

The E3 clip confirms co-op which means that other humanoid characters may be able to wear Samus' vaious other suits.  Or there could be other aliens with their own suits, ships, and technologies (visors/weapons).

I can't wait to see what the ship looks like on the inside.  


I have faith they will use the new lighting engines to create new levels of atmosphere and ambience.  The GameCube can already do awesome polygons, so any system three times its power will have no problems with expansive environments with lots of characters at a smooth framerate.  They talked about detail too, which makes me think of the bugs flying around in MP2, the way the visor will fog up, and cube mapping.  I don't care what Capcom says about temperature; a regular tv will get the job done.  If I watch Laurence of Arabia on my nineties tv does it make it look any less real?  They're real actors!  End of argument.  Resolution is nothing but that, resolution; it doesn't make graphics look any better.  If anything it will show more imperfections.  With that said I wish REV at least supported wide screen.  I don't care about progressive scan or interlace; its all jargon about resolution standards or the absence there of which is why it hasn't been adopted as quickly as the "annalysts" who are recieving payolla predicted.  I can't believe these giant publishers are bowing down before the hype machines.


The greatest news here is that they will use the new controller's features.  I would predict that includes at least a gyro and a trackball which means free aiming similar to the Hunters game but with analog control.

I think that the quote did imply suitless. But definately no nudity.

She might have on that little attire from the end of Zero mission.

Metroid isn't about that...It's about being alone on mostly uninhabited worlds, not "Samus goes to New York" (thanks, Mario )

They talked about detail too, which makes me think of the bugs flying around in MP2, the way the visor will fog up

Retro is the king of detail, don't worry...

Edit: Oh wait, I've had a rather credible source tell me that Samus WILL be going to New York!  Check out this boxart he sent me!

yeah, the story doesnt have to make much sense, shes a bounty hunter, but the Metroid experience is about loneliness, every time you land on a planet, somehow you know you are basically the only human there, and for awhile, one can believe that there arent many lifeforms, going into a city could ruin that, but if they do it right, it could be awesome, a big, cold and over-populated city can make you feel lonely also. All I say its that is hard to achieve, so just leave her in her suit, please

That MP:H story line duh.

"Not to mention how most people are surprised she's a woman, believe or not there are many of them out there, its really nice to see their expression when they finally know. (usually when Im finishing MP 1 or 2) "oh my... she's a woman!!??" ^_^ thats priceless. "

So put the nudety at the end of the game as a bonus.
