Metroid Prime: Federation Force Revealed
« on: June 16, 2015, 05:51:00 AM »

Nintendo has shown off a new title in the Metroid series for 3DS.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/40458/metroid-prime-federation-force-revealed

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is coming to 3DS. Nintendo announced the 4 player co-op focused title as part of their E3 Digital Event presentation.

In Federation Forces, the player controls a member of a Federation combat team, fighting enemies of peace. Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, which was previously shown during the Nintendo World Championships, will also be included in the game.

It is unclear whether Samus will be making an appearance.

Finally. This was exactly what I was hoping for: a return to the Metroid Prime series potentially without Samus.

Didn't Lindemann predict that Nintendo would make an fps from a federation soldier's perspective a year or 2 ago?

Who cares. It's co-op, and won't be like the classics at all. And it's honestly sad to say that the Prime Trilogy is a classic.

Well at least this points heavily to Retro's new game being Metroid Prime 4.  The original Hunters sold worse then then worst selling Prime game, so for Nintendo to make another Hunters, even still letting it keep the name Metroid Prime despite Samus nowhere in site, implies heavily the real deal is being worked on.

Couldn't give less of a **** about this.  I'm not interested in multiplayer Metroid.  Metroid is about isolation.

Nintendo makes these spin-offs of their IP but they're generally so bad at storytelling that the gameplay is all that I value in their franchises.  They'll give us some different type of game with the Metroid/Zelda/Mario universe but those universes are either devoid of any interesting details or are batshit insane.  The Metroid story is garage.  In the post-Other M world it is useless trash and it was starting to get kind of incoherent before that anyway.  I couldn't give two shits about Samus Aran the character or the world she inhabits because Nintendo is incapable of making me care.  I still love Metroid because I love the gameplay.  Since Metroid is a single-player game I already know this won't have the Metroid gameplay so what appeal is there to me?  If anything I'm annoyed because it feels like this is a substitute for a "real" Metroid game.

I prefer videogames as a largely solitary experience so Nintendo pushing real hard on multiplayer Zelda and Metroid is a huge turnoff.

I'm waiting to see what the gameplay is really like. However visually the game looks like trash and that's best way I can express my opinion when it comes to what I'm seeing.

The Treehouse segment for this one is something I'm really going to be paying attention to. They showed so little so far that I can't really form an opinion yet.

Live on Treehouse.

Cartoony graphics and numbers popping up when you shoot monsters makes me think of Borderlands.

Gameplay itself is like any other co-op console shooter, like Halo or Destiny.

Yeah, I'd say this old Spoony video kind of sums up my overall impression of this game.

art style is weird though.

Regardless of whether it's for me or not, I can accept this as a spin-off. Traditional Metroid is the culmination of its gameplay even though story can have different importance. I think Nintendo understands what Metroid gameplay actually is this is purposely not that.

The art design suggests that, as usual, Nintendo is obsessed with making Metroid popular in Japan.  Personally I like that Metroid wasn't cute like most of Nintendo's other franchises.  If this was a real Metroid game and the series wasn't already tainted by Other M these graphics would get a Wind Waker "betrayal" type of response.  It looks like Metroid's take on Virtua Fighter Kids.

Metroid is one of those truly "sacred" videogame franchises.  It is usually in the discussion regarding greatest videogame series ever.  Every videogame company would kill to have something with that reputation and yet Nintendo seems pissed off that Metroid isn't big in Japan and isn't as mainstream as Mario.  They seem so preoccupied with appealing to who doesn't like Metroid and they're going to drive off the fanbase so that NO ONE likes Metroid.

I can't see too many Metroid fans being even remotely interested in this.  The sort of audience that would be interested doesn't give a **** about Metroid.  They're diluting one of the most prestigious brands in videogames for a product aimed at people for which the brand has no value.  That's like making a Lamborghini minivan.

I'm stuck in that annoying catch-22 where I hope a Metroid product I want nothing to do with fails horribly so as to not encourage Nintendo to bother with further Metroid spin-offs but that Nintendo somehow doesn't interpret it as a message that Metroid doesn't sell.

I spent the last two months replaying Metroid titles. I can see how this is different, and I appreciate getting something different every once in a while. I still think there is a big Metroid game on the way. Probably been in development for a while, yet too early to show off. Being made by who knows. This is not it. This  is on 3ds, which I dont have. So, im not toing to be upset about a game I wont buy anyways because I really dont do handhelds. I also like gears of wars.... so theres that. Ive also been interested in the backstory with the federation vs the space pirates. So, it appeals to me as any other spinoff does, I know its not the main game. Theres always talks that all Nintendo games are the same, its silly to hear uproar when they do the safe thing, but then when they do something outside of the box its OMG WTF waaaaaah why curses?!!!

This is the meme for Rare, not Retro Studios. And neither are true.
