If you find yourself stuck in Metroid: Other M by a locked door, Nintendo would like to help you out.
Nice to see Nintendo trying to help out...but a patch would have been more practical than sending an SD card and waiting a week.
And I guess you didn't read the article...right?
No, xino, he's right. If you go to the page Nintendo set up for this, that's exactly what they want you to do. Instead of releasing a patch, you have to send in your save file on an SD card.
The site's articles gave a walkthrough on how to avoid the whole bug and why it happens:/ no one is talking about SD here.
In the olden days, when a bug actually did happen... you were SOL! Guess Nintendo still lives in the olden days! Ironic since they are the most innovative company this generation when it comes to re-inventing the console.
In the olden days, games were actually tested before release BECAUSE they couldn't be patched.
Bug still happened back in the day. It's just the software logic was simpler, although the technology much more rudimentary and harder to debug. The sort of bug you see here is a logic error. Nothing is really changed, except games are now much bigger with much larger teams working on it. It's a fact that you can't get bug free software ever including the stuff that NASA does.
''Proceed through the door that was just unlocked at the end of the room before doing any backtracking to any previous rooms.'' go through 'the door' at the end of 'the room' before backtracking to previous 'rooms' umm? what doors? what rooms? talk about vague! almost pointless even talking when they arent giving any good descriptions of the doors in question. if i encountered this glitch i would have sent the game back for a refund! gladly, i didnt encounter this glitch. if nintendo made this game, this glitch wouldnt of happened, its team ninjas fault.
Yes its all Team Ninjas fault, get the stakes ready! Team Ninja is the devil.
"if nintendo made this game, this glitch wouldnt of happened, its team ninjas fault." Er, whose fault was the Twilight Princess cannon room glitch?
Here's a solution: Play Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
Nintendo bug? Wow, I've never seen one from them...interesting.
It's not from them. It's from Team Ninja. Trust me. Once Nintendo starts getting into more complicated game design...you'll see bugs. There were bugs all over N64 games. The stuff Miyamoto is involved in...is usually top quality though. He is about as OCD as it gets for polishing a game. Gabe Newell being the exception. I'd love to see Nintendo embrace that also. Half-life 2 STILL receives updates sometimes. They have been polishing it since it came out years and years ago. If you'd have played it at launch, you'd see the difference. It's just...insane!
I think the ability to patch like the other main consoles is in order. You simply cannot rely on beta testers fin every problem. Here is a good example.
Never encountered it. But the solution is pretty easy, copy your save data and load the copied save game... not very difficult.
Wow. Lame Nintendo. You guys gotta' get with the program and patch that $hit!
So, the people who disagreed don't think that Nintendo should patch the game? I don't get it.
They already are...
this game wont age well
