Many players are experiencing a game-breaking glitch in Metroid: Other M which won’t allow them to progress through the game at a certain point.
Luckily games today can be fixed. I used to hate playing a game where it would do something similar and I would have to reset the whole game.
You don't hear about Wii software getting patched very often.
what are reviewers doing writing reviews about a game they cant even finish... let alone mot mentioning this huge bug..
I'm pretty sure the reviewers were able to finish the game. Otherwise they all would have mentioned the this bug. It's a big, but doesn't seem to happen often. [EDIT] Some people are reporting that this isn't a glitch and that you just need to explore more to advance. I wouldn't be surprised if this is true. It's a Metroid game after all ;)
how do you know they even finished the game? reviewers these days are racing to be the 1st to come out with reviews and many times their reviews are questionable!
the bug obviously doesn't happen every time. if it did the game never would have passed playtesting. plus I've beat it already...
Do Nintendo patch Wii games? I have absolutely no idea. Patchable games is good this this gen, seeing how complicated games are now.
wii games aren't patchable
Yhes they are. Just depends on the developer. Conduit 2 will use such system.
I smell a recall
Haven't finishe the game
I feel bad for the users experiencing this glitch...I imagine it's similar to the way I felt when God of War III kept glitching at the platform jumping/bridge turning part. I was NOT happy about needing to restart my GoWIII game.
I don't remember that glitch. Must not be that common(hopefully). Did you have to restart your PS3 whenever it happened? Or did you mean start a new playthrough all over again, cause that would suck.
I'm not sure if it got patched early on--there was a LOT of information about it those first few days. It was right before the whole sex mini-game part of GoW III. I definitely had to restart playing from the beginning; there was no way around the glitch. It was right after the Poseidon Princess scene. You name it; I tried it. There was just no way to use my save file and continue to progress. Here's a link to the ps3 forums thread: http://forums.godofwar.com/... There were a LOT of glitches, especially early on.
Whoever actually thinks this is a glitch is just a retarded noob. Explore some more and you'll find your way through, thats what the game is about. I beat the game fine. I doubt my copy was "special".
a glitch just happens sometimes. in dead space near the very end of the game right after the guy helping you gets killed by the bull thing I encountered a glitch where a door was missing a power cell when it was supposed to be there. it wasn't a common glitch but I saw a few threads about it while searching the internet. I had to start the whole game over to beat it.
The exploration is still integral to the game, but is somewhat more linear. The collecting aspect of the game is no more, so you basically run through the game as if it was a gauntlet, blasting anything in your path. You really just need to keep bashing the fire button whilst you run down corridors, and you will never be in harms way. Gameplay along a 2d plane is fantastic, reminiscent of the old 2d games… this is a dream come true for those people who played the 2d games. Gameplay on a 3d plane feels tacky and just wrong… this is where it all goes wrong in my opinion.. It just doesn’t work. It was annoying how some paths you cant fall off, but others you can, so sometimes you will come a cropper just because the game suddenly decides that there will be no ‘invisible wall/clipping’ on a certain path. The controls present no problem at first… but later in the game you will want to throw the controller at the wall when you face tougher enemies and greater things are demanded of you. Although the ’oldskool’ controls are meant to simplify things, it actually makes it more complicated, it feels like you are playing some silly party game when in the middle of a boss fight you are furiously rotating the control vertically and then back horizontally to perform the correct actions. Its frustrating and really unnecessary… they could have just used the nunchuck. Cgi cut scenes- breathtaking, high quality. The way forward. Although the cut scenes from in-game graphics are not quite up to the same standard, they don’t have any real atmosphere or ‘cinematic’ feel. This isn’t helped by the robotic voice acting, as if made with a computer synthesiser rather than a human. Bad script lowers the tone even further. The in game graphics range from brilliant, to rubbish. But generally too dark, literally you will have to play with the lights out or turn the brightness/contrast right up on the tv because most areas are too dimly lit. The enemy character design was quite poor, I thought a lot of them were just silly and annoying. Overall I think this is a unique game.. Its not like any other game I have played… it has a lot of frustrations but as an experience it does have its rewards. The pacing of the game is not the best, although the cut scenes are impressive, I think they are too lengthy for the amount of gameplay on offer. But there is not as many cut scenes as other reviews have made out. They are not pointless, they do actually enhance the gameplay, but I think it tips the balance slightly. Was giving samus a voice a good idea? I think so.. Yes some parts are just unrealistic and you wonder how she ever became a great bounty hunter with such an immature attitude, but you also get a deeper understanding of both samus and the metroid universe. I liked the overall tone of the game. 8/10 *note... i didnt encounter that glitch, but it doesnt surprise me if that did occur
this bug is random but still HA!!!!!!!!!!
on the first elevator you went up after the game intro the game would freeze up this happened a few times to me. Other times it didnt freeze
well, that sucks.
playng at the same time or playing one bit by bit. r u a squid or sumthng with so many hands. havent played other m, but i loved metroid prime 1 specially and 2 alot. nintendos got sum excellent ips. hope they put em to better use next gen
