With so many Nintendo fans proclaiming Nintendo to have won E3, why is it that the reality is so contrastingly different to what's being suggested?
They seriously compare Metroid Prime 4 to Metal Gear Solid Survive . . .
I agree, but still we don't even know how far in development the game is. It could take another 2-3 years until it's finished.
Knowing Nintendo's track record it's going to take 4-5years. They didn't even have a screenshot. So they probably didn't even start on making it yet, Just an idea. Even the logo is plane jane.
Btw it's a really good read. Read the whole article. Nintendo is in a heap of trouble.
(Couldn't edit post to add this because it was too late)
...Lack of 3rd party support. Even monster Hunter a franchise that was exclusive to Nintendo isn't even coming on The switch (lmao). And it only show cased rando games except for Mario. And metroid prime isn't a system seller. But Nintendo fans don't have too much going so they'll take a logo as a win, I suppose.
damn this article is terrible...he bashes nintendo for having a great e3 and then praises metal gear zombies which without hideo kojima will clearly have no story at all...hey lets throw the metal gear name on something to sell games now
They didn't show anything other than 'Metroid Prime 4', and that was enough for me lol!
Would I like to have seen gameplay, of course. But come on, they announced a new Metroid game!!!! I seriously had doubts they would show anything and they ended up showing two new Metroid games! I hope that 3ds one gets ported over to Switch at some point.
Nintendo had best E3 in my opinion. I think it was because my expectations were pretty low and they ended up surprising me. And sweet Jesus I'm ready for Oct. 27th! Mario Odyssey!!!
Lmao. You nintendards are too funny. Metroidsm prime isn't a system seller. The previous iterations didn't make enough. And its gonna be 3-4 years before it's released. You guys will take any small thing and blow it out of proportion to get a game in denial win. Nintendo has you guys like followers of a cult. Go to bed, it's probably passed your bedtime.
April fools is not today
Idk how people can hate the Nintendo conference when it was one of the best showings. It was short and sweet.
Didn't think it was possible, but I'm slowly being sold on the Switch. Zelda looks really fun, Minecraft on the go with my Xbox worlds, MK8, Rocket League on the go, Xenoblade 2, Mario Odyssey, and a future Metroid Prime? Pretty strong imo.
Haven't owned a Nintendo console since the Gamecube and loved that thing. Once it gets Smash I'm more than likely going to plunge.
Would be awesome if them and Xbox continue a solid partnership for more cross-play stuff because to me that's really cool and Xbox is my primary system.
Not to mention Pokemon and No More Heroes also in the works for the future, with Fire Emblem coming next year. Pretty great lineup of titles coming in the near future and on the horizon.
I was extremely skeptic on Switch when it was announced. I love Nintendo but I felt it was going to be a failure like the WiiU. I've owned all there major consoles but I was planning on skipping this one after the WiiU let me down. My girlfriend surprised me and got me one with Zelda on launch. And dude, it is a really, really cool system.
Nintendo still needs to get there act together on a lot of things, especially online functionality. It is way behind other companies in that department. But the system itself is great. Really cool piece of hardware. And Zelda is seriously one of the best games I've played. Playing Mario Kart 8 with a group of friends on the couch (and some booze) is so damn fun. Arms, a game i had serious doubts about, is a blast. And sweet Jesus, I'm ready to play some Mario Odyssey! And the fact you can play all of this anywhere you want!
I highly recommend you get one. I have a PS4 and a Switch, and enjoy switching between the two. You will also with your Xbox and Switch. Hope you get one!
Aside from the ridiculous voice chat solution I am also thinking of getting a Switch now. It looks to be a fun system that has dual purpose and when I am on vacation it would be a great system to bring on the plane and stuff. Hats off to them as well for being open minded to crossplay, that deserves a lot of respect and I think it is the best supporting platform now to my PC.
Ya know, I had my finger on the upvote but then you had to insert your console war BS into your message at the end. You have no plan to get a Switch do you? You just wanted to promote your view, eh?
They have a lot coming out this year so not really
What a salty author!
Apparently, people aren't going to bother reading the source site.
I read it before commenting, otherwise how would I possibly know they compare Metroid Prime to Metal Gear Solid Survive, which isn't mentioned until nearly the end of the article?
And you STILL don't get it. I'll explain it to you real slow....it's-a-SATIRE article; the site is called PRANKSTER101!! The only thing missing is Aston kutcher's face on it! Get it now?!
Wish I hadn't
Finally somebody haves the barllss.
Yes have the ball to be a negative nit picking a-hole.
Nintendo had the best showing along side Ubisoft imo.
Like you he's a coward troll.
Super Mario Oddysey is game of the show and their direct, booths and competitions were the best.
Agreed! I think nintendo announced the most new first party AAA games out of all 3.
Yeah your spot on and for me Nintendo have more ip's coming out for it that I want than the Xbox one and PS4. Not saying the lineup on both is poor but for me who has less time to game now more of my £ will be spent on the switch then the other two over the next 6ish months.
Writing off Metroid Prime 4 as a niche IP. Seriously, is he brain damaged?
Corruption sold less than 2 mil on the Wii.
Uh...the attach rate for Wii was shit so 2 million is pretty damn good.
And Metroid Prime sold almost 3 million on the Gamecube. What's your point?
You confirm the series is in decline.
The Metroid series is home to some of the greatest games ever made, but in truth, it's never been much of an amazing seller.
Doesn't seem a very balanced article. I dont mind articles expressing an opinion like this, but they need to address counter arguments to the author's views. Video games are very subjective, and so opinions shouldn't be addressed as facts, as this author has done in this article.
I don't understand how Nintendo could be the biggest loser, especially since I saw your mother win the Biggest Loser show about 3 months ago.
On another note, look at the link first people and you will realize it's a troll. Don't click it and your reward will be saving a few seconds of your life. You're welcome :)
Salty blogger mad because Nintendo won E3.
Aside for super mario odyssey, witch is great, i agree:
kirby and yoshi were nice but not amazing, metroid isn't interesting, games like splatoon 2 and arms are mediocre;
last but not least, i don't give a fuck about pokemon anymore.
"Metroid isn't interesting" 👎👎👎
Kirby and yoshi aren't supposed to be amazing but they are charming, simple and fun.
Those games are mediocre even though you couldn't have owned either?
"the joke’s really on Switch owners for wasting their lives in order to earn the necessary amount that enables them to buy into such a glorified piece of $hit!"
Ok....screw that guy. Probably the most asinine comment I have ever read on n4g.
This is what is wrong with gaming sites. When any dipshit can throw up a WordPress blog and pretend to be a columnist with drivel like this.
The system hasn't even been out half a year, all systems suffer shortages of games for the first year or two really. And when someone throws money at developers of course they will bring their games to your system even if they won't sell hardly any on said system.
As a PlayStation fan I would like to play new Metroid games. I cannot say Nin are losers, they have my interest at least with something, kudos to them, honestly!
They had the best conference since about 95 % of Sonys was stuff they showed at previous E3s & Microsoft had a big indie focus Nintendo easily had the best
Aww poor you, coz Ninty obvs won E3 they have to be like "Nintendo are crap" let me taste those salty tears
I hope this is a parody coming from Prankster101? Please?
Nintendo did a lot better than expected by announcing metroid alone.. That combined with Mario and Splatoon and boom.. More actual fun than most offerings out there.. Its not all about graphics.. No company makes me think and enjoy a game more than nintendo does.. Playstation fills in the rest with RPG/Action titles
The only AAA title on that list I was even slightly interested in was Destiny 2, and that's going to be on PC. You don't use cross-console titles as a selling point for a console. The rest of the list is regurgitated crap, even if they were exclusives.
Metroid Prime 4 was interesting. It's been a long time since we had a good Metroid title. I'm worried though because Nintendo is outsourcing development again. We all saw what happened to Other M. There's no guarantee of quality if someone else is making the game. It could turn out to be another crap entry in the series.
I'm disappointed with the whole show, to be honest.
"You don't use cross-console titles as a selling point for a console."
Sure you do. You use a combination of cross-console titles AND unique exclusives if you really want to sell your console. I'm interested in all those titles and I also really want to play Zelda BoW, Metroid 4, and Super Mario Odyssey, but the list of games that AREN'T on the Switch far exceeds the games that ARE. Hence I am not sold on the console.
Not to mention the power of the console just doesn't do it for me visually. Visuals definitely add to the experience no matter what people say. Zelda is one of the best games of this year, but if it had visuals (no talked about art style) like Uncharted it would be an even better experience.
It serves as a good secondary console, but not a primary, unless you're only interested in Nintendo franchises.
It wasn't a race.
Man, it sure is easy to please ninty fans.
And you're worse than ms fans when you hear any kind of criticism.
N4g should be ashamed of themselves for writing this hateful article. Despite the hate everybody loves their switch, they're enjoying it and it has some great games coming out for it, I love my switch.
Sure nintendo has some things to work on such as their online solution and being more aggressive with third parties to bring games to the system.
Is this a non gamer article ?
Wow, how pathetically jealous and salty this article is.
Guarantee you I know at least 4 of the people on here who gave it the undeserved approvals.
Sup dude!!! Ninty had a fantastic E3 can't wait till next year haha
More like "this article proves the guy who made it it's the biggest sore loser"
Nearly every site I have visited had Nintendo at first or second (behind Ubisoft).
