Metroid Prime Hunters really wasn't a bad game, but I'm not disappointed that online isn't included for MP3..

they never promised such thing, and the SP portion will be top-notch, so I couldn't care less about the lack of multiplayer

Well, the game will be great, no doubt, but with all this demand for a Wii-make compilation of the first two, Retro, or perhaps a newer scrub studio could attempt on revamping the control and graphics of the first two games, while also working on a multi-player aspect.

That's an option I think Nintendo will consider, but I have to say, I think Retro is about ready to do something a bit new and different, and I don't exactly see HAL or EAD developing a rich first-person shooter multi-player experience happily.  I imagine they'd want a Western developer, since the game is an FPS/FPA, but really, I don't think Nintendo likes to work with Western devs using their own IP.

There is going to be a major race to be the first online FPS on the Wii once Nintendo really opens the door and lets developers fully understand how the online strategy for the Wii works.

I am really excited for Red Steel 2, and I hope that the team actually creates a better experience than what was available for the first game.  However, I am sure many developers are waiting for Metroid Prime 3 and are waiting to see how Retro designs its game.  It will obviously be the most polished FPS to date...and many developers will copy the feel of its controls.

Imagine, if you will, the pre-order bonus for Metroid Prime 3 is a Wii-tooled Metroid Prime Hunters. NST could handle the porting and then everyone could have the lovely cake that will be Prime 3 and the lucious frosting that is Hunters: Wii Edition. But alas, it is merely one fan's silly dream.

This doesn't really bother me because... * Prepares to be crucified * I've never really liked the Metroid games. It's not like I haven't tried to, heck, I own Zero Mission, Prime, Echoes, Super Metroid, and Metroid. I don't know what it is, but the whole gameplay style of the series never really appealed to me, I guess I'm just more of a Mario kinda guy.

Anyway, while I don't really have a dog in this fight, I don't see why any self-respecting Metroid fan could be upset about this development. It's a single player series, and it should stay a single player series.

Yeah, I don't know what it is about the series I could never get into, it's not that I don't think they're good games, I guess it's just not my style. Heck, a buddy of mine can't get into Zelda for the same reason, and we're both life-long Nintendo fans.

I have trouble getting into the 3D Zeldas, but I love most of the 2D ones.  I can't imagine why you wouldn't like Super Metroid, though.  To each his own, I suppose.

It's cool ShineGet I'm just playin =)

To each their own, not everyone will like the same games, I mean I don't really get into the Final Fantasy games for example, though many of my friends LOVE the series I just can't get into it like them.

Oh and I know what you mean thatguy even though I love Zelda, truth be told I didn't like OoT all that much. I often get yelled at for how amazing it was but I felt the games concepts were ahead of the technology and WW and TP do a better job refining the gameplay and representing Zelda in 3D.

Why is it alright for a developer to release a fps that only has online and yet not for them to release one that only has single player?  I want to hear the bitching about Battlefield having no single player campaign.  Metroid has always been about big single player experiences so no complaints from me.

Online only suggests (but does not guarantee) better, if not infinite, replay value. That's why.

Nintendo fans want their Halo. The Prime series is in 1st person so its natural to put the two together. I'd rather Retro make their own original FPS so they're free to do what they want and no Metroid fan can say, "That's not Metroid!" I think an original IP is doable by Winter 2009. Long ways off, but I like what I've heard about Prime 3 and I wouldn't want the game to be pushed back any further just so they can add multiplayer.

Well I know their initial stance on the Wii is that it is too weak to do what they want but . . .

Free Radical Design could always end up making TimeSplitters 4 on Wii. Personally I like the TimeSplitter games (well future perfect specifically) more than Halo. I would love to see what they could do with the Wii and it's controls.

Though an original first or second party IP would be awesome.

I don't even consider the Prime series true FPS' though, they're more or less action adventure games from a first person perspective, and while they may share -some- FPS characteristics, they're far more exploration-based.

Only people who don't know what the hell they're talking about consider the Prime games first person shooters. That's not even tongue-in-cheek either.

I agree with you, I want to see Retro create an original IP, in fact I think Nintendo NEEDS them to in order to help push Nintendo into the next generation with an IP that can suck in "gamers" who aren't into Nintendo's current IPs (I think you have to be nuts to not enjoy a good Nintendo IP but hey you have to do what you have to do). It could even be a Halo killer, or better yet maybe they can tackle another genre entirely that will have mass "hardcore" appeal.

Well I say if they can pull off a great game (I heard Raven Blade had a very shaky start) then they should go for it. Maybe with Miyamoto's guidance they can actually do it, like they did with Metroid Prime.

Oh no doubt. Miyamoto's guidance and influence is always a good thing.

Plus the development team is (probably) more 'matured' since working on these past 3 Metroid titles, I'm sure they learned a lot of what works and what doesn't and it'll definitely help with whatever title they tackle next.

I know there are those who'll disagree, but if MP3's engine is as good as it has been sounding, Retro (or someone) could possibly take it and make an on-line only Metroid Prime 3.5 or such.  Or even use the engine and make a whole new game with a focus on online multiplayer.
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.
