found the game repetitive


...You found Metroid repetitive? Metroid? No offense, but you were clearly doing something wrong. I've played nearly every metroid game, and not once did I ever find myself doing something twice.


Well the combat with most enemies is pretty repetitive: L target, strafe, double jump to dodge, and spam A or Y when you get an opening. The bosses and special enemies change things up though. But in reality all games have repetitive gameplay mechanics so the gamer can rely on a system to proceed throughout the game. So i guess his argument in the end is pretty weak anyway I think what he was trying to say is that he doesn't find the gameplay in the Prime Trilogy appealing which is understandable but unfortunate (IMO of course).

This digital Wii U version will recognize your old save files that are stored in the Wii mode of the console, I'm assuming...?

Yes, I think so.



Dont know if this question has been answered but when u say the rest of this week are wee talking about till next friday ? at least by the 6th of February ?



This service should get more hard to come by classics games more accessible for mainstream gamers

Can I buy it now and take advantage of the sweet price despite not owning a Wii U just yet? Kinda like with the browser version of PSN Store? I own a Wii if that's of any help...

I think you can buy the download code even if you don't have a Nintendo Network ID (I think it's to help with people gifting games)

Check the links below because I'm not certain on the details:

Thanks, but... Hey, is it NA only? Doesn't Europe get the Trilogy for 10 Euro? I guess I can't buy a NA code and play it on a EU console?



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Have Metroid Prime 1 for the Gamecube, bought the Trilogy on disc for 70€ at the end of 2012 shortly after buying my Wii U (didn't have a Wii).

I bought the Trilogy digitally for 9,99€, because I really like the convenience of just starting a game without first having to pop in the Disc, especially if I don't have to go into Wii mode first.

I'll play it in march, as I'm a little time constrained at the moment.



Platforms: Wii U, New 3DS, PS4, PC

currently playing: 
 -Yoshi's Wooly World 
 -Pokemon X
 -Fire Emblem Fates 

Zone: Europe (Germany)

I owned disc copies of all three, but still bought the disc version of Trilogy a while back for the improved controls and less frustrating difficulty spikes in 1 and 2.



are the pointer controls just like they were in prime 3 or did they add a bounding box like conduit, red steel2 and COD? Of all the games i just mentioned, the lack of customizable motion controls made metroid prime 3 the worst as far as controls go.

There's preset options; beginner, intermediate, advanced.



I have all three games already, but still bought the trilogy for wii u. I guess I just mainly wanted to see how the first two games played with motion control.
