        1. I take it that he was traumatized by how hideous Ridley’s design was in the game. Or he probably got annoyed by the many times Samus said “The baby”.

            1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

              We’ll let it go when NintenD’OH! owns up to the fact that Other M was shit. Those morons still don’t realize they did anything wrong with that game.

              1. Really? I loved Ridley’s design from that game. Probably the best Ridley design in all of the Metroid franchise, in my opinion, and I loved how that design was used for Smash Bros and Dead or Alive.

                1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                  Shame. That design of Ridley would have been perfect to shrink down so Ridley could be a playable character that didn’t look stupid shrunken. In fact, they could always say Ridley looked that way in Other M because it was still young while the old Ridley design from past Metroid games could quite literally have been Ridley being old.

                2. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                  Liked Ridley’s design & wasn’t bothered by her saying the Baby. Just annoyed by the fact Samus had a PTSD attack with absolutely no build up whatsoever to it. That’s terrible writing. Especially when you take into account the many times she’s faced Ridley even after battles that should have resulted in his death. Not even a bloody flashback to show Ridley was really dead this time. Even a few lines of Samus going “No! You can’t be alive! Not this time! I killed you for good last time!” would have sufficed before her having a panic attack.

                          1. Me too, no one near me to try the local play… Too bad single player isn’t available while we wait for the online to pop up.

                          1. Pretty much everybody gets it. If they only wanted the “important people,” then they’d only send codes to people in the industry, which is usually the case and they tend to get the full game. This isn’t like an open Beta or anything where we’re providing genuine feedback to help Nintendo make a better game or test their servers when traffic is heavy (like the Splatoon demo). It’s just a demo – Nintendo gives us codes like we’re a special customer or best friend or something, we play the demo, and we end up buying the game, maybe.

                        1. PC Master Race Agent Narud

                          ||I see you servants of the flawed are getting excited over this rubbish, resist or serve the Master Race, your choice, make it the right one……

                                  1. 💃I'm a Boss Ass Bitch💯

                                    Hmm since the other bitch took the code without saying fucking thank you or anything. I guess I’ll give it to you out of generosity. Email?

                                    1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                      Trust me, like me, he won’t want it. In fact, he probably also got this email & swiftly deleted the cursed thing.

                                            1. No problem! Happy to help.
                                              I’ll be interested in what you think too! I probably won’t be able to try the online out until the Sunday session.

                                              1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                                                >>>I appreciate your thought, even though it lasted 5 minutes only>>>

                                                >>>But like Ridley said, I would phazonite it at once if I got any>>>

                                                                                  1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                                                                                    >>>I did, took all my power though, those CPU Agents are far more powerful than us, except we know what true gaming is>>>

                                                                                    1. 💃I'm a Boss Ass Bitch💯

                                                                                      Right…. it still fucking lives. It commented yesterday with its some old fucking depressing shit. He’s like an sad old ass man who’s depressed that Nintendo is failing. If you think you have destroyed him, than you sir have fail miserably

                                                                                      1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                                                                                        >>>You can’t completely destroy them, they are constantly being revived>>>

                                                                                        >>>It took me ages to fight off a CPU Agent Bill years ago, and I was only a Commander back then>>>

                                                                                        >>>CPU Agents are my specialty, Narud will not win>>>

                                                                                        1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                          *reads the entire conversation all the while thinking “Get a chatroom already, you two.”* lol

                                                                                      2. I just hate how the times for est are rediclious times like who is gonna play online at 1 am?
                                                                                        Here the est times btw
                                                                                        10/16: 8pm – 1am est
                                                                                        10/17: 8pm – 1am est
                                                                                        10/18: 10 am – 3 Pm est

                                                                                        1. You’d preferred it lasted from 8pm to like 10pm? I dunno, they could extend it to 3am if they wanted to, the longer the merrier, even if I’m not up that late.

                                                                                      3. I love how people are actually trying to sell these codes on eBay… People these days make me sick… Also I’ll be giving some of my codes out on this website… If anyone is interested…

                                                                                        1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                                                                                          >>>The stupid ones are the ones buying these codes because of their impatience and greed for playing a demo of a non Zelda game>>>

                                                                                            1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                              I got this email with my very own code! Yay! *sarcasm* I deleted it the first chance I got. Fuck this game!

                                                                                                1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                  It’s not a waste if I can make sure there are at least 3 people that never play this horrible CDi-esque Zelda game.

                                                                                                    1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                      I’ve lost any reason to take you seriously with all of the laughing you do. Then again, maybe you laugh so much because deep down you don’t even believe half the stuff you say in NintenD’OH!’s defense.

                                                                                                      1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                        Either way, it doesn’t matter. They were my codes so I was able to do whatever the hell I wanted with them. And I chose to trash them. Don’t like it? Tough. Go cry to Nintendo or something about it.

                                                                                                        1. i couldn’t careless that u throw them away if u don’t like the game, but the fact that u got rid of the codes so u can stop 3 people who are actually interested in the game wont play it XD and just idiotic and butthurt at its finest

                                                                                                          1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                            Like Federation Farce, it’s a shitty game for the franchise it’s part of. For someone who could care less about respecting a franchise’s established graphics, gameplay, and/or story as long as it’s “fun,” you just don’t understand how we core fans think or feel. In fact, you refuse to see our point of view & simply laugh at us for decrying what we see as an insult to our beloved franchises.

                                                                                                              1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                                Like I said, you don’t get it. If you did, you’d realize this game is exactly like Federation Farce: filthy casual trash trying to use an established franchise’s name & success to help it garner sales. With that in mind, Chibi Metroid & Fashion Show Zelda aren’t that different at all. But go right ahead. No one is stopping people like you from wanting to play these mockbusters when they release.

                                                                                                                1. I gotta jump in here against my better judgement… I totally get where you’re coming from with Federation Force. Last Metroid title we got was Other M and it left a horrible taste in all of our mouths. So, eagerly waiting for news on the next Metroid title that will hopefully cleanse the nasty that was Other M… we get a spin off multi-player game… I have my own issues with this as well but I’ve come to terms with the idea because it could be a small glimpse into the Prime universe outside Samus’ eyes. It could be interesting and all the elements are there; Space Pirates, Metroids, and Samus will make an appearance. But! That’s not what I wanted to get into… Tri Force Heroes is fantastic. If you enjoyed Link Between Worlds and Four Swords; you’ll get a kick out of this game. Plus, we’ve had great Zelda titles recently and a huge one in the works. This side title isn’t coming in the middle of a Zelda drought. I played the demo and had a blast with it. It was like playing Link Between Worlds with two other folks in real time. It’s interesting, engaging, and fun! I wouldn’t write this one off because it’s actually a lot of fun.

                                                                                                                  1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

                                                                                                                    While it’s not in the same situation as Federation Fart, I still hate both games equally. It’s so stupid saving a silly warddrobe over something more important like actually saving a princess & her kingdom. Seriously, this kingdom’s royal family’s priorities is royally fucked up. I’m not too fond of the king’s design, either. I get a troubling CDi Zelda vibe from it for some reason. Bleh… More importantly, it’s another game in the long list of babysitting/overprotection from Nintendo. “Oh voice chat is evil because people might get bossed around! We need to protect everyone from the cruel, cruel world! Making a feature that turns voice chat off is out of the question!” Like Splatoon, the kiddy protection can kiss my ass no matter how fun it is. Being held back because a small minority can’t handle it or too lazy to mute the feature is not what I call fun.

                                                                                                                    1. I’ve got my own opinions concerning voice chat but won’t dive into that pool because they’re vastly different than yours. The fashion concept is bizarre for sure, but that’s what is so intriguing to me. This bat-crap crazy idea actually made it into the game! The designs are so frightful and off putting it makes me want to explore this new world even more. It’s different, and that’s great for a game that is not really supposed to be taken seriously in the Zelda canon. It’s a side game, so it’s better off as a strange departure from what we would expect. If it had canonical story bits I would assume fans would be even more frustrated because then they HAVE to snag this one to keep track of the timeline.
