Five Reasons I'm Worried For Metroid: Other M

5) Trying to hard: They seem to really want to push the whole story thing a bit too much. The story telling in Prime's 1 & 2 was very good, much like the story telling in portal it was there for those who wanted it and others could ignore it. Just as good were the internal monologue Samus had in fusion.

4) Collaborators: Although Nintendo's Collaborations in the past have been well received and hella good(see Nintendo Squaresoft's Super Mario RPG, and Nintendo Capcom's The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons/Ages) this partnership seems like it doesn't really fit. They wanted a more in depth story then they were used too making so they went to....TEAM NINJA? Not excatly known for their in depth stories as much as jiggly boobie physics. I'm not saying they are a horrible choice just an odd concerning one.

Counter Point: Ninja Gaiden's 3D releases breathed new life into the series, and team ninja likes to push and polish their games to hell.

3) Bad Voice Acting: Samus' voice has to go up there has some of the worst voice acting I've ever heard. It sounds like they described Samus as a lonely and tortured by her past and the actress took that to mean utterly boring and completely useless. She has a nice voice but ever line delivered in the preview material sounds dully and boringly read of the script with no emotion. I can't believe that a slightly rebellious, woman who takes on space pirates and alien life forms for a living would sound like a complete push over. I could go on and on about how English voice actors for Japanese things are shitty and always try to sound like the Japanese voice actors instead of making the character sound like its English speaking counterpart so I think I'll stop here with this one.

2)Fan's Complaining about Team Ninja's Jiggly Boob Physics: As soon as Team Ninja was announced as a collaborator for the fan out cry was OH NOES NAOW SAMUS IS GUNNA HAVE BOOBIES! It was funny at first until i realized it was a serious concern amongst people as if Nintendo would let Samus's breasts be bouncing around all the time like it's DOA Beach Volleyball. Then Nintendo released the pictures and video's to prove that Samus was still a flat chested little blonde girl. However one of the few things i was looking forward to right off the bat when i heard Team Ninja was doing Other M was the Speed Run Reward. The Speed Run Reward is always a picture of a Skimpy dressed Samus smiling on a beach in space or some shit like that. This is tradition since game one and if i miss out on what could have been the best skimpy dressed Samus done by TEAM NINJA cause some bitchy little fans thought that Team Ninja should hold back, I WILL BE ANGRY >=(.

1)Prequelidus: This is the game that links the stories of the games together, or at least the stories of Metroid, Metroid II, Super Metroid, and Fusion. It will give Samus a voice, and explain her past and more importantly create plot holes in my favorite Metroid game, Metroid Fusion. It will make going back and playing fusion a chore because I am sure that this game will cause faults in her personality and thoughts in Fusion, as well as her feelings toward the computer representation of Adam. This makes me sad, being as fusion is my favorite game and one of my favorite games of all time(probably 1st or 2nd on the list), but as long as the holes are just holes and not large gaping craters it should be an awesome game and im excited for its release in 11 days!
