    @mrhumble1 you keep saying bad design. I don’t think that means what you think it means. Lol

    It is a different design from what you are used to. And they were quite up front about it. Just because you made fan fiction in your head of what you thought the game would be doesn’t make it bad game design.

    From what I played the characters all have interesting stories. Or at least they have likable personalities that make me want to see how their stories end.

    But whatever. It’s your money it just sounds like you already had your mind made up because Nadia’s review is quite positive where it sounds like you were looking for a very superficial reason not to like it.

    @mrhumble1 Nintendo said there is endgame content where all the characters interact. The people who have played it say it seems like there is some bigger mystery out there that isn't properly dealt with. Chances are most of these reviews haven't unlocked a major part of the game, just like Bravely Default and Bravely Second. Sounds like the reviewers just rushed through it. I'm sure in the next week when more people play it they will have found the True End path of whatever.

    If you like making snap decisions based on reviewers who rushed through the game, then by all means cancel your preorder, it doesn't sound like you have the patience required for an RPG anyway.

    But I have a feeling you will regret your decision.

    Jason Schreier said he only played the game for 36 hours. 36! There is no way he found all the end game content.

    I like the theory that Mayor Pauline has just created all her citizens a la Princess Bubblegum in Adventure Time.

    Actually, if you follow the Mario Timeline (I'm sure there is one out there somewhere), it isn't a stretch to think that all the Mini's from the Mario and Donkey Kong games have just evolved into the citizens of New Donk City. They are all clockwork people made in the image of real people like Pauline and Mario.

    Does Peach wear the wedding dress that is on her amiibo in the game, if so why and how did she put it on. Either she was forced to wear it, which is really disgusting on Bowser's part, or she wore it willingly and she is just toying with Mario.

    There really isn't a possibility which doesn't make one of the characters irredeemable.

    Though I guess Bowser is always pretty Harvey Wiensteny no matter how you look at it.

    I loved playing it with my son for a while but it got buggy as hell by the end. Or the middle. The Doctor Who one kept crashing and I never finished it as a result.

    Or just build a Raspberry Pie with RetroPie that can probably do way more than this thing can, especially if it won't run high end AAA games. My Raspberry Pi can even play most Dreamcast games.

    Kind of a clickbait title, no offense, because it was actually the other way around. The baby rescue was HIS idea and his coworkers told him it was a bad idea. The title implies the opposite.

    Sounds like you are trying to deny Sakamoto credit for the most pivotal scene in the game. It' honestly bigger news that we know for sure that scene was his idea, as I think a lot of fans still like to give Gunpei a lot of undeserved credit for the Metroid games, especially after Other M came out, fans loved to shit all over Sakamoto where they need to be praising him for everything he has done for the series over the years.

    AM2R is more of an actual prequel to Super Metroid, in my opinion. It feels like a derivative of Super Metroid not Metroid II, which is what most people wanted. It doesn't feel like Metroid II to me. Which isn't a bad thing.

    Samus Retruns feels like they tried to capture what made Metroid II appealing when it came out and modernize it, which I think they did successfully. Both games were trying to accomplish different things and I think both succeeded in their goals.

    For me personally AM2R couldn't hold my attention. Samus Returns feels more like Metroid to me in that when I'm not playing it, I wish I was playing it. I had to force myself to keep playing Am2R eventually to the point where I stopped playing.

    @NateDizzy Yeah, that was exactly my point. With Nier and BD you had a small team, make games that were huge international successes. Any other publisher would look at that and say, "Let's give them a bigger budget."

    Nier probably will get a bigger budget for the next game, but the BD team is constantly having to work cheaply and reuse assets to extend game length because they aren't given a proper budget for their efforts, and then fans bitch about reused assets.

    If you took the BD battle mechanic and stuck it in a Final Fantasy game. Hell, even get the Yoko Taro to write a Final Fantasy game, it would be a much bigger success than whatever Overwatch thing they are going to do next as a result.

    They never look at where their talent is, and allocate it properly. They just keep giving money to Nomura to waste on overblown budgets and delays.
