Forums - Gaming Discussion - Metroid series (possible Other M and Fusion spoilers)

Tagged games:

I just completed Fusion and was shocked to see Adam Malkovich mentioned so much. Not only that but this game was definitely the first that was more story driven and started to show the softer side of the Samus character.

Wasn't that the main complaint about Other M? How the hell did the negative reviewers not see this?

Maybe it's just that I played Fusion after Other M and can see the connections easier but it's clear to me that Nintendo always intended Samus to have a softer side.

Fusions cool btw, prob my least fav of the series and I've played them all apart from Prime2 and Hunters. I'd give it 7.5/10

I Think Other M was more about Voice acting than actual story. I actually replayed other M just a few months ago better absorbing the story line its bad. The Melissa thing will always be stupid though.



Other M is a decent game, cant understand why it got panned do much



imo Other M was ok, nothing special, but like you said Nintendo intended to show Samus's softer side, but I think it didn't worked so well. 

They show her as a weak character, everything is about the stupid baby metroid and not using her powers because Adam didn't allow it, she is supposed to be a strong character with a lot of self-confidence, she can defense for herself, and that's why I like the Prime series so much. 

Also, what I really like about Samus is her mystery, not knowing much about a character can be a lot better than knowing all of his/her past (if it is executed well).



Nintendo and PC gamer

I need to go back and play fusion.
Zero mission is probably my favorite metroid game, Other M was amazing to me. I really like metroid as a whole, my least being Metroid 2

What nintendo needs to do is build off the Fusion story, and bring BACK her strong confident charchter, that way it can come off as, yes, samus WAS a softer charchter, but as time has progressed, this is who she is now. 

...does that make sense?



Samus was not portrayed as weak. She was showing that she was no longer a brat and could authority.



I played all the Metroid games out of order so basically I don't understand the story at all. It's confusing



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

The next Metroid needs to have Samus waking up from a bad dream, the dream being Other M, and it never actually happened. She should also be in her underwear.
