Instead of CG Ridley should just be a big Muppet. He should also talk and sound like Fozzie.

“It is quite obvious why Other M did not succeed when compared to other Nintendo games; it features a female main character,” says Sakamoto, “Mario, Link, Kirby. Those are all male Nintendo characters that never fail to generate good sales.”

“It’s not just about the sales either,” adds Sakamoto, “The game as a whole was received fairly poorly compared to other hit Nintendo titles. I personally wrote the story for the game so I know it can’t be that. I mean, I created a strong, female character that people just could not accept. I apologize if gamers feel like they were emasculated playing the game, but that shouldn’t affect your judgment of everything else.”

When asked about the success of the Metroid Prime series compared to Other M, Sakamoto replied, “Most people who play that game are completely unaware that the main character is a female. This is why it avoided what hurt Other M the most. I believe that if Other M had disguised Samus’s gender like in Metroid Prime, Other M would have surpassed the entire Metroid series.”

“Perhaps for the next Metroid game, we should have Adam Malkovich become the lead character. I can’t wait to write his story,” says Sakamoto.

God tier copypasta

I want to cast the Metroid movie too:

Samus: Charlize Theron
Anthony: Mahershala Ali
Adam: Mads Mikkelsen
Ridley: Voiced by Gary Oldman

Directed by: Denis Villeneuve

No more just that you put Prime 2 below Prime 3. Other M did have quite a few things going for it and I'll admit I had some fun with it, just the bad outweighed the good for me.
I have tried Prime 2 on a few occasions and really like it, but it never clicked with me like 1 and 3 did. 1 > 3 > 2 is my ranking but 2 is still like an 8.5 to me.

That's fair. 2 was considerably more difficult and Torvus Bog did feel like a brick wall at times (which is a shame because Sanctuary Fortress is hands down the best Metroid area IMO). What was it that put you off about it?
3 never clicked with me, I never really enjoyed Skytown and the final boss(es) felt like a let down compared to 1 and 2. Also escort missions oof. The beam stacking felt like a bit of a waste too or rather I wish there would have been more beams to stack like the 2D games, Spazer/Wide in 3D could have been cool.

february has been quieter than I expected

I came into Feb expecting semi-confidently
-FF7 demo before the delay happened (still hoping it'll happen in Feb)
-PlayStation meeting (or maybe a state of play if nothing else...)
-Direct of course

3 huuge things

now I am hoping just 1 of those will happen.

Speculation: next week we’ll get our Animal Crossing blowout, and I’ll feel foolish for ever doubting it

Going to be so many meltdowns if we have an AC direct before a general direct but at least it would stop the constant what if Nintendo stopped doing directs posts, but then again the Pokemon direct didn't stop them either.

I don't know if we'll get that many meltdowns? People know both of them are inevitable - I'm super ready for an AC Direct personally.

It's not what they want
which is infos on the other games coming oit this year.
So people are going to be pissed off by that.
just like last month with Smash and Pokemon.

I'm not interested in buying Animal Crossing, but I am looking forward to an AC Direct to see whether there is something that might bring me on board.

If it's literally the same game, again, then I've been there before and honestly dont have the time or patience for it!

If theres some innovation and more of a structure to the 1P experience, even just part of it, then I might be tempted.

Much like Pokemon, I'm expecting it to just be more of the same - not a criticism per se, just not going to tempt me. That said, the game was delayed... so perhaps there's something more to show?

Yeah I think there won't be as many angry people as there were for the Pokémon Direct. Even I was confused by the Pokémon Direct last month and I would gladly take another Pokémon Direct :p

People were pissed about the Pokemon direct and Smash presentation airing before a general direct. And that's not even counting the people pissed at the Pokemon controversies or the people pissed that it was Byleth. I feel like if we get another game specific direct or an Indies direct before a general direct it's going to make those same people go even more over the edge, so to speak.

Well with smash, people were just pissed at the character revealed.
Nah there were people pissed off even before they found out who the character was. All variations of these two quotes "OMG when will Smash end it's trash and I don't care about this franchise" or "Why? This should have been 5 minutes at most in a general direct. This is unnecessary.".

People always get mad when a Smash Direct is announced. Most non-General Directs tend to trigger some people.
