E3 2012 Metroid by DrewGreen E3 2012 Metroid by DrewGreen
Hey folks!

Every year I get really excited for E3 (the giant gaming trade show in Los Angeles). Sometimes my interest in gaming wanes and I need something to remind me why I love it, and E3 (particularly Nintendo's presence at the show) almost always reinvigorates that love.

Last night, I decided to celebrate E3 by doing this simple portrait of Samus, one of my favorite Nintendo characters. Did you know the Metroid Prime series turns 10 this year? Isn't that nuts?!

Beyond the obvious New Super Mario Bros. Mii (or whatever they ultimately call it), and almost certainly Pikmin 3, it's though to say what we'll see today at Nintendo's E3 press conference. I'm looking forward to learning more about both of those games, but I'm even more anxious to hear about things we don't know about. I'd really like to see some Metroid presence, too (3DS or WiiU). What about you?

Nintendo's E3 press conference is in just a couple hours now (9AM Pacific, 12PM Eastern time) and you can see it live on their official website, though lots of gaming sites will be broadcasting it, too. [link]

On an unrelated note, please do me a favor and take a look at my Indiegogo campaign for the second episode of my webcomic, the Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston! [link]

Enjoy the artwork!

~Drew

I honestly hoped for Metroid at this year's E3, and I seriously thought they would show at least a hint at it. Mario and Zelda (which I love) have had their time in the spotlight for the past few E3's so I was expecting the third most popular Nintendo original to make an appearance at this one. I was kind of disappointed.

I love it ^_^! She looks so cute.

No metroid or star fox for that matter, but at least we got pikmin 3! and plenty of other exciting titles too!

I hope that a 3DS Metroid is a sidescroller like the GBA games, and you can use the bottom screen as the map and something like the scan visor from the Prime games.

One thing's for sure, I definitely want to see what's the "project everyone want us to do" Retro is working on right now. I also heard about a Metroid made on the unreal engine. I'd be really excited about a new Metroid, especially if Sakamoto learned something from Other M (like that he should never write a video game's story ever again).
Also, seen some footage of Rayman Legends, and it looks freakin' fantastic. Really hope they don't drop with this one ball and cut the entire plot from the game like they did with Origins.

Anyway, sweet piece!

Samus can show more personality through her helmet here than she could've ever hoped to do in Metroid: Other M.

Other M was a misstep in a lot of ways. The gameplay was pretty good, but the presentation was sloppy. And it was all too short.

The unskippable cutscenes were horrible and Samus had the personality of a manikan. Also love how she had a panic attack and shedded her armor because Ridley appeared. Apparently, killing that thing so many times hasn't worked on her confidence. Also note Ridley grinding Samus against the wall just like in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. =P

reason for the panic attack...PTSD(post traumatic stress disorder)..im sad for it but at least she handed it better than the manga i gota say.....and yet they would just use letters on the voice...due to have such personality it would be hard to have a voice for it that sounded good....yet the story was short and not to well made....like a time run game..... thats why the game wasnt that good...short and bad formed...maybe they didnt give it the time needed....well what can i say...ive heard E3 was a failure?..and im bored of mario....god they seems not to get enough from that man that has an italian acent and is not and lives in japan....god im getting sick og him..really

The game was given plenty of time to develop. The problem--Team Ninja taking a fast-paced action game and shoving all of this unskippable emo drama in our faces.

As for Mario--I love Mario. I grew up on Mario. Why does it matter that he's not from Japan? But it was the vision of a man from Japan. One Mr. Shigero Miyamoto, who is highly respected in the video game industry. Besides, Resident Evil doesn't have Japanese dialogue. That series always used English dialogue with Japanese subtitles. Something pretty common among characters with American origins. Resident Evil 4 even used Spanish dialogue.

agreed.. i had going to say something about other M but.. it's unnecessary.
You know.. I think a good way to "innovate" the metroid series is to adapt some gameplay like Dead Space or Vanquish. *of course, with the adventure of metroid*
Anyway, cheers!! :D
