Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I think the 3DS controls can fix all the control issues of Metroid Other M

The 3DS most certainly can fix everything that was wrong about Other M because now we can finally ogle Samus' ass in 3D.



Until you've played it, every game is a system seller!

  How can you try to fix a game you didnt even play?...

 I loved the game, analog instead of d-pad would be great, but other that that the game was really great, I was really amazed to see how smooth the transition from 2d to 1person view was. running and shooting was fine too. 

 Maybe the story and VA was not the best, but it makes sense if you are been playing all the 2d games (specially fusion), but this is not a controller problem...

A Wiimote/Nunchuk setup would trump any control scheme you could come up with on the 3DS, because it gives you instant access to 360° degree movement while at the same time it's possible to freely aim at every possible spot on the screen.

Metroid on the 3DS should be a sidescroller like Super Metroid, because Other M style would require the game to rely on semi-automatic shooting mechanics once again.


uh, don't have steel diver or? would piss off people on buses  and trains though.



I think Nintendo should try to make their handheld games more tradional.

2D Metroid, 2D Zelda, etc. It's all fine and good to have a 3D mario/Zelda/metroid on 3DS but the focus should be on a more tradional aspect for handheld games.

@Rolstoppable, I also agree that a nunchuk wiimote combo will be best but please try to answer the questions I ended my post with

What? Why am I singled out? It's even more perplexing, because I actually answered both of your questions already.


Sorry, I guess I didn't read your post well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Other M, when in first person mode, the dodge button IS the attack button right? @SmokedHostage, besides the emotional story which is very non-metroid, what's the major problem with the game? I'm guessing it's that there are very few puzzles compared to other iterations but I won't be playing it till the holidays this year so I don't really know what the problems are.

My thread for teaching VGC some Nigerian slangs

I've beaten the game 3 times - there are no control issues to fix. Even if there were, I'd rather have a new Metroid on 3DS.

What a bizarre thread.

I liked how the game played. To me it felt like playing Metroid 1 on NES again. The shooting part couldn`t be exactly the same because there were times where the camera was behind you and shooting while selecting directions wouldn`t work very well.
I honestly liked the emotional parts on the story. I think it gave Samus a lot of personnality.
The game felt a bit short and not too hard as other Metroids, but that`s more than acceptable.

The side jumps were a pretty cool inclusion and gave the game a more action feeling to it.

I don't want Other M 3DS either. I was just asking if the 3DS metroid playing like Other M would be a good idea. I've beaten Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission and I'll definitely beat Other M. I'm sure I won't have an issue with the story, I'm just scared of the d-pad controls(since it isn't a 2D game) and the auto aim.

Nothing about the 3DS can fix the trainwreck that is Metroid: Other M.  It certainly can't repair the character assassination of Samus Aran, it certainly can't patch the numerous plot holes, it certainly can't replace the story with a feasible narrative, it certainly can't give Samus back her strength, it certainly can't fix the worst plot device in the history of gaming ("Adam says ok"), and it probably can't fix the fundamentally broken gameplay.

Better to take Team Ninja and Sakamoto and drive them to the New Mexico desert and steamroll them into a concrete tomb to be forgotten forever.  Along with their shitty little game.
