Amazing video,
a must watch by everyone still confused about Other's Samus.

Saw this coming. xD It's a good explanation, though. Considering I saw some of the GAF outrage over this...yeah, this was necessary. >.>;

Invader_Quirk5045d ago

That was a really really good video. He's right. It's all in your heads.

Well said. Why can't Samus have human emotions after all

Nioh games definitely up there at the top alongside Ninja Gaiden BLK.

There is a decent fan base for the Nioh games, but still think they are criminally overlooked and under appreciated.

I just bought the PS5 collection to replay them again with all their DLC, a sweet collection for my games shelf for sure.

Yea, those gardens haven't been plowed in over 10 years now though. Imagine if they cultivated it, let it grow again.

Amazing what ya can do with a samurai sword lol 🤣

The honourable mention though.

TheSenorCheese546d ago

originally it wasn't going to be included because of their take on Samus' character. But the gameplay's actually not bad.

Vits545d ago

Honestly, I don't know if we can even blame them for that take. Nintendo's Sakamoto was credited as the writer and from what we learned later with the Retro Studios interviews for the Prime series, Nintendo apparently never saw Samus as this stoic badass that most of the west imagined her as. Going as far as describing her as "motherly".

Ninja Gaiden was dope but I don't really care for alot of their games.

Well it almost killed Metroid so…

PhillyDillyDee791d ago

Yeah we all loved how you took a stoic badass and turned her into a whiny shrew. All those writers should be sacked.

Sometimes, I doubt that Reggie was that great for Nintendo after all.
