Metroid Federation Force: E3's Biggest Underdog


This actually looks pretty cool!

When I first started watching Nintendo's E3 confrence, I realized that there wasn't going to be much we didn't already know about. We knew there would be a new StarFox, new Amiibo stuff, Mario Maker, and so on. But what I wasn't expecting was the latest installment in the Metroid franchise.

To me, this looks like fun, it really does. Does it bother me that Samus isn't the main character? Not really, it would be cool if she were, but it's not a deal breaker. People have been swarming Youtube and other social media outlets to express their fanboy outrage and complete hatred for Nintendo as a company because they didn't make another Metroid Prime. I can literally feel the hatred burning through my screen.

I really want to like this game, and I have a feeling I will. But the sceptics don't want to chance it. For all the sceptics out there, here's a quote Reggie Fils-Aime said to EuroGamer and Kotaku the other day. 

"My ask is that fans trust us." Said Fils-Aime “Here’s what I would state: we know what our fans want. We will also push the envelope in developing something that we know is high-quality and that we know will deliver in the marketplace. The best example I can give you of this, and I think you will appreciate it, isLegend of Zelda Wind Waker. Remember when that art style was first shown. The uproar from the Zelda community was intensely negative. If there had been social media then, there probably would have been a petition to make that game go away.”

And trust them I do. Samus or no Samus, it will be good either way. Have faith in the big guys, they won't let you down.
