I wouldn´t call it humbleness. In fact it reminds me alot of Inafunes statements.

what do you call it?



 

He is a perfectionist.

I think he´s just bitter, because instead of having more freedom Armature projects that actually came to fruition are 2 ports and a licensed game. Since he actually was backstabbing Nintendo and getting fired because of this, it really is no surprise to me that he says somthing along the line of "because I thought all the Prime games suck." instead of not beeing happy with doing creatively bankrupt port jobs.

In what way did he backstab nintendo? I was under the impression that there were a handful of people that left retro...



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I agree, MP2 sucks so bad and it's perhaps one of the most boring games i've ever played... God, and it's multiplayer made things even worse.

MP was great and MP3 was good, it could have been a better game if they added multiplayer MPH style which was only good for it's multiplayer. I think it's too bad they never made another Prime game as good and fun as the original.

Trying to stage a mass exodus of a company behind the backs of management and trying to make deals with other publishers while still working for Nintendo. For some reason, Nintendo got hold of these talks on April 18th 2007, the day the studio's URL was registered, and the three were laid off.

o.O That really IS backstabbing...

Difference is that Pacini wasn´t working alone on Metroid Prime and that obviously the departure from Nintendo wasn´t a friendly one. It´s just a completely different matter if you criticize a work you made on your own and saying something "sucked" that was developed by a studio with many competent coworkers you left behind. 


I agree. It's also unfair to the fans of the series, saying something they love is crap, especially coming from the creator. It's like he has no respect for the opinions of others.

Bad day perhaps?



Prime 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. My favorite Metroid game too. So I think he is not giving himself enough credit.
