The Fall of Samus Aran

From DAMNLAG.com:

"Team Ninja has effectively destroyed the franchise’s credibility with this singular effort of digital diarrhea. The manner in which Metroid: Other M accomplishes such a feat is a testament to its status as a paradigm of video game vomit"

Yeah, Samus got a pretty raw end of the deal.

Gago2791d ago

Team Ninja only worked on the gameplay and graphical aspects

everything else was handled by nintendo

na-no-nai2791d ago

if you want to blame anyone on how samus played out then it would have to be the creator, but to me this guy probably didnt even played/or sucked horribly at other m. good game love it

Samus HD2791d ago

for me it's the best samus game

giantchicken2792d ago

Samus was never really personified. Team Ninja gets CC for trying.

QuantumSponge2791d ago

The only sensible comment I've seen in this discussion. It's not like Samus was a riveting character before Team Ninja got their paws on her.

qface642792d ago

anyone who says or thinks other m destroys samuses character really doesn't know jack squat about the actual samus to begin with

SpoonyRedMage2792d ago

also anyone who blames Team Ninja for the writing of Other M needs to do some research and STFU.

Samus has no emotion on any of the games, she saved a metroid on one game but that is not enough to understand her personality. That's why many people sees her as a cold and powerful badass bitch with no relatives or fears. It is understandable why the personification in other M came as a surprise to so many people, in other M Samus is more like a female and everybody was expecting a tomboy or something. I was disappointed too...

Mastersnake102792d ago

That's so sexist! "Like a female" Like all females are weak and dis empowered woman who have panic attacks. Fuck you.

"Samus has no emotion on any of the games, she saved a metroid on one game but that is not enough to understand her personality. That's why many people sees her as a cold and powerful badass bitch with no relatives or fears."

did no one finish Prime 3? No one remembers when samus was thinking about Rundas, and the other bounty hunters she killed? I guess Prime 3 ruins samus, shes supposed to be emotionless right?

read the fucking manga, I feel like a broken record saying this.

Mahr2791d ago

"did no one finish Prime 3?"

To be fair, that is not something I would blame anyone for.

"No one remembers when samus was thinking about Rundas, and the other bounty hunters she killed?"

I do not really mind one way or the other about Samus feeling emotion, but that part made no sense. Why was Samus all sad about having to kill three characters who she knew for about five minutes before they went evil and started trying to kill her?

Xander-RKoS2791d ago

I believe it was implied she had met them before.

Also, considering that Samus basically created Dark Samus and sorta failed to kill it back on Dark Aether (not really her fault), I can see how she blames herself for the hunter's deaths. Considering Other M's story, I think it's clear that Samus does not take the death of friends and loved ones very well.

Also, the hunter's were awesome. I was sad having to kill them, and only I knew them for as a long as Samus did in 3.

Mahr2791d ago

"I believe it was implied she had met them before."

Where?

"Considering Other M's story, I think it's clear that Samus does not take the death of friends and loved ones very well"

I can accept that; I just find it extremely hard to believe that it only took three minutes for the other hunters to become Samus's 'friends and loved ones'.

"Also, the hunter's were awesome."

Rundas, sure. The other two, not so much.

she wasn't cold in metroid fusion and she wasn't the way most people see her in the mangas

Mastersnake102792d ago

"Just as offensive is the diction of Anthony, who is black. No, he doesn't say "We need to find an exit" or "We have to get out of here!" in moments of peril. Instead, he yells "WHERE DA EXIT AT?!" and "YO SAMUS, RUN GIRL!" Because everyone knows that if black space marines were to exist in the future, they'd speak in urban ebonics while pointing at their gold chains. Duh."

Yeah...that was pirty bad.

qface642792d ago

lol i actually thought that was hilarious

Mastersnake102792d ago

Well the article was funny. Nintendo's writers being racist? no...

jc485732792d ago (Edited 2792d ago )

AWBrawler2791d ago
