Game Journal May 04: Metroid Prime Hunters

Urk, I had a bad feeling from this game the moment I got a "headshot" message....

This is the first game from the Metroid for the Nintendo DS, and even though it's been in development since the DS came out it feels rushed...

Clearly this game was meant to be played via Wi-Fi against other oppoenents, and the single player mode is almost an extra, just like Zelda Four Swords...

The feels like Quake or Unreal Tournament, they built the game all around the "deathmatch" idea...

The game is just four planets that you must revisit a few times to complete them, and they are just deathmatch arenas with corridors between them...

Argh, they even removed all of Aran's powers! Now she can only use the Morph Ball! The rest is just weapons...

Every once in a while another bounty hunter will come to get you and then the Deathmatch begins.... JOY! ¬_¬

I didn't mind too much when Metroid went 3d, and I didn't mind when the game was hald FPS, but this is a put FPS and nothing else...

This game might be a blast to play against others, but it's not very fun to play alone...

As a matter of fact it's not fun at all, I actually QUIT the game due to frustration! I was fighting a boss that exactly the same as the previous one, only harder...

After figthing him for way too long, I just couldn't take it anymore...

And this is coming for an extreme Nintendo fanboy! I NEVER say anything bad against Nintendo!

Long day....

-ACK! One of my favorite villagers from Animal Crossing is moving! I hope I can convince her to stay?

-Which reminds me one of the villagers was going to visit my house, but I was so busy I forgot!

-Why was I so busy? I was creating the list for Online Comics Day, I think it's ready now...

-I got my Sam & Max prints today. They are 18 x 24", bigger than I expected, I think I'll only frame one of them, I don't think I have room in my wall for both, that is, if I want to add prints from other artists...

-Today was my mother's B-day, we had a modest party since we will celebrate it fully another day...

-It looks like I'm having cake for breakfast! YAY!
