Thousands of Nintendo fans have banded together in an effort to have Nintendo cancel development of Metroid Prime: Federation Force on Nintendo 3DS.
wtf? 12500 Signatures already? I wasn't so excited about the game but ok.....I don't want to be canceled.
I don't think it need to be cancel just strip of the Metroid name.
That's really awful, and yes, it's disappointing what Nintendo is doing with the Metroid franchise, but a petition to cancel a game? That's beyond ridiculous. Just don't buy it then.
Idiots. This isn't going to make a new mainline Metroid game magically appear. All it's going to do is leave us with less games. And this one actually does look fun. I feel embarrassed to be a Nintendo fan, and even more embarrassed to be a Metroid fan.
Looks horrible but some petition ain't gonna do squat.
if this many people dislikes the game and its going to sell horribly, they would be doing themselves a favor canceling it.
Rather than a petition to cancel a game, why not make one to have a new metroid game? It seems backward to want a game cancelled rather than ask for a new mainline game instead. That way while this releases there would be a new game in development thanks to a petition asking for a new game.
Nintendo fans NOT wanting a game? Crazy times.
Fans beg for Metroid or years....now they don't want it. The entitlement of gamers is disgusting at some points. Why not, if you don't like it, oh I don't know...DON'T BUY IT??? I don't think the concept it that hard, and I'm pretty sure Nintendo isn't holding a gun to your head to buy it.
That's something of a false dilemma. "You can either have the crappiest Metroid experience ever, one that essentially has no bearing on its namesake besides branding, or none at all." It may as well be none at all, there is no choice there for Metroid fans. I don't agree with petitioning to cancel the game, but that argument is a flat out fallacy. This is far from entitlement, it is clearly quite insulting to their patient Metroid fan base.
This is pointless. Has any petition ever changed Nintendo's behavior? The don't care unless it effects profits and it won't. Why? Because the same fanboys who are signing the petition will probably end up buying the game anyway. How many times has Iwata apologized and yet they continue to have the same backwards policies? You really want change? Boycott all Nintendo products for awhile. That's the only way.
I signed the petition cuz I know they won't cancel the game, but I do want Nintendo to know there fcking up biggg time to there loyal fans, its disrespectful ,, its a huge dck in the face, I never want a game to be canceled and I know Nintendo won't, I just want them to understand this bs is unacceptable
Just don't buy it. Bad sales are far more effective than any petition.
