If they take a shot at Donkey Kong again, I really hope they give it more of a dark tone to be more faithful to the original trilogy. HD would also do it justice.

I wouldn't say it needs to be darker, but rather more atmospheric

Did you not like Double Dragon Neon?

I didn't particularly like its atmosphere, which was more (to me) mocking its source material than adding to it in any meaningful way.

The same thing happened with Contra 4, so I have no reason to think the same would not happen with Metroid.

Yeah, although I do like the music to Double Dragon Neon I have to agree with Ing (Which is a first I know!) in that I'm getting a little tired of this self-aware-ironically-bad-80s stuff. And not just from Wayforward. Yeah, a lot of old Japanese games were cheesy, but it loses a lot of its charm when it's all tongue in cheek.

I still think people need to try and imitate games from the late 90s, those have a lot of nostalgia for me. I think we've had enough of the 80s. That and they had the best music. (Symphony of the Night, Guardian Heroes, etc.)

Funny thing is, actually, Recettear and Chantelise actually look and sound exactly like something off of the Sega Dreamcast, which I'm pretty sure was unintentional. While most "retro" games don't look anything like something you would see in the 80s, and they just seem to try way too hard.

I dunno, I personally loved the fact that it was all tongue in cheek bad 80's stuff, especially all the co-op high fives and the Skeletor-esque villain.

This is out of left field but what if Nintendo partnered with Valve or hired former Valve employees to help with the next Metroid? Considering how Valve is no stranger to the shooter genre, their experience with dark and desolate atmospheres, their level of cinematic work (Nintendo seems to want Metroid to have a plot), and their creativity in game design, methinks the match would be good. The chances would probably be slim but it's something to daydream about.

Too bad every Metroid game that has had a 'dedicated plot' has sold like shit. Why bother? Obviously the market doesn't want a plot-heavy Metroid game, no matter what the fuck Sakamoto thinks.

And Metroid shouldn't really be a valve-style shooter. Valve can't do non-linear games.

I still say with some tweaking Nintendo Land's Metroid Blast would be the perfect way to play a third-person Metroid game.

I don't think Valve has ever made anything but linear sort of puzzle-y fpses. While I've never played Half Life, though I don't think it can be all that different.

My problem with Metroid Blast is that the concept entailed in the word "Blast" doesn't really have anything to do with what Metroid is. So a game designed around that concept of "blast"ing things is just not going to be Metroid.

And it will once again sell like shit!

Valve has also made several multiplayer FPS games, and a MOBA (though that's mostly IceFrog, I think)

Seeing Valve take on an action-adventure game like Metroid would be interesting, I think.

He was implying that the control scheme for Metroid Blast would work well if they ever decided to do another TPS game in the series. For you guys who haven't played it it's basically what Metroid Prime would be like if it was in third-person, along with the ability to dodge by shaking the remote

It'd certainly be interesting. I'm surprised there weren't more games using that kind of control scheme on the Wii.

I don't mean take the game Metroid Blast and sell it on its own, I'm talking about the general control scheme and the way everything just works.

Yeah, Ichigo got what I was trying to say.

Aiming feels extremely accurate. There's this one extra mission where you have to fight 2 Ridley's at once, and it just felt so great running around, dodging Ridley's attacks at the last second and firing back at him, without worrying about, say, the pointer feeling off center, or relying on auto-aim like Other M.

According to Wikipedia they programmed Super Metroid.

As for actually MAKING one, I dunno. They're certainly capable but all they ever do is WarioWare, strategy games and RPGs

The same thing happened with Contra 4, so I have no reason to think the same would not happen with Metroid.

I haven't played Contra 4 in like forever and I honestly thought it was pretty accurate to its source material and it didn't feel like it was mocking it at all. Hell the game has alot of Contra 3 call backs. I don't see where you are coming from honestly.

On that note I rather play Contra 4 than 3 cause it doesn't have those stupid mode 7 levels that completely ruined Contra 3 for me.

Contra 4's biggest problem was that it had to many callbacks to 1 and especially 3 and forgot that the horizontal levels were the worst thing ever in Contra 1 while forgetting that Hard Corps exists.
