GamePro sat down with Michael Kelbaugh, President and CEO of Retro Studios, for a final update on Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. In the interview, it was revealed that Metroid Prime 3 would not include online play, among several other things.
that sucks, It would of made lots hits with online play, feel sorry for my baby brother who owns a wii
Screw the online play. Concentrate on making the single player experience special.
the gamecube version was, slow boring and was more repetitive than the halo 1 campaign. Back tracking ruined that game, and it ruined the franchise for me. Metroid to me, sucks. so that single player campaign, already went down hill, specially with mp2.
Going back to previous levels with new powers and reaching previously inaccessable areas is what Metriod is all about. I know the game is 1st person but you need to think of it as more than a shooter. Its an exploration/adventure platforming shooter just like the Super Nes version.
Xi I'm willing to bet that you have never played metroid prime and you are basically just being a douchebag complaining about problems you only hear about (ooh it's the evil backtracking!). Play the game...or shut your vagina up
truth is, the game play is slow, the puzzles aren't innovative, the boss fights are redundant(ooooh shoot this part now, even metroid prime, just have to make sure you use the right gun, then duck under it's dash. So hard). The Backtracking was horrendous, I got lost so many times, and missed so many artifacts because of it. The story was mediocre and had so much extra nonsense. Then mp2 came out and it was the same game, different story, same enemies, slightly different weapons, and the same tiresome, boring repetitive gameplay (though at least they fixed some of the back tracking) the game was average, looked great(to dark IMO) but it was nothing special.
Its trash anyways.
And that, sir, is why you only have one bubble. Congrats.
No online play is the reason I won't buy a wii...
Bunch of trollers. Feel better? Well honestly if they wanted to make their full effort towards the campaign I for one am happy. The first Metroid Prime on GC was by far one of the cooler games out there. If you say differently then I guess you don't like FPS. MP3 I hope will show that it's still an awesome game
Metroid is NOT Halo. It has never needed multiplayer. Gimme game now!
People think the multiplayer would be soooo cool, but infact it sucked with MP2. Metroid is best to be a single player game and for those calling it a FPS......IT ISNT A FIRST PERSON SHOOTEEEEEEEEEEEEER.
i dont want online i want single player experience not no halo
When NINTENDO says so.
Whatever the case, I hope its as good and enjoyable as GameCube version. I loved both Prime games. Looking forward to this, with or without online. (But with Metroid features, online could be really cool IMO)
It would be stupid to do multiplayer in metroid, look at MP2 and hunters. it's an action adventure with a 1st person view, not a first person shooter. online multiplayer FPS suck anyway, repetitive all the way, boring. only in racegames it makes sense to me. This is my opinion, i'm sure there are (a lot of) people who disagree. Don't play MP3 then, it simply isn't for you. respect people, don't be so fokkin' childish.
FPS without online multiplayer... it's not acceptable... now in days... but then again... how would this work? Nintendo have the friend's code policy that you have to enter this long code to play against/with someone online... don't they? how would it work? this goes against quick match, etc....
you can still have quick match which is really easy just log on and go to the lobby or whatever and your in a game with other peeps. The only time friend codes come into play is if you want to play said game with said buddy and you put their code in your friends list and then you get to play with them when you want. MP Hunters for the DS was a good multiplayer game but MP2 on GC was an awful attempt. I think Retro Studio's have just decided that they aren't that good with a multiplayer situation and they know how to make a great single player situation so they just went with their best resources to make the game. I don't know though I'm online gaming for both 360 and PS3 even DS and PSP sometimes but I don't think online multiplayer is the 'my way or the highway' in terms of consoles greatness. I'm still a very much offline player and if I think that way that just means there are other people that think the same way.
:Z That was one of the main reasons I was gonna buy it :| Now what FPS can I look forward to? Red frickin' Steel 2?
what a f**In joke that is what i have been waiting on feek it the wii is for sale now no metroid online what were they thinking of CRAZY MOVE
