              See? It can be anything as long as it shows what the character is and have a biography, what the character is for, and what they can do. I even added a few fan arts done by my own hand…in fact one of them is in my picture in my name you see…inuyasha.
              I think the more term they call it is “Character arts/development design”. But if “material artist” is the new way of saying it, then its right up my ally. I can make characters no problem, backgrounds and reason why characters exist is hard…sometimes I have trouble making characters I think about.

                1. ||Of course…||

                  ||If you have Colors! 3D you can see other creations made by me under the name Commander-Quadraxis…||

  1. Do they got a position for someone to tell them not to use a famous franchise’s name *cough*Metroid*cough* to sell what should be a brand new IP!?

  2. Th-this is terrible!

    According to Federation Farce’s eShop page, it’s only getting 4-star and 5-star ratings! Nothing lower! Granted, there’s only like 10 ratings, but still.

    1. Yay! 10 fucking retards that either only know Metroid from Other M or only know Metroid from Nintendo Land! So how many gave it 5 stars?

        1. There is literally nothing to play right now, on any system. So I broke down and downloaded Federation Force from the Eshop. Im going to power through the entire game tonight and I will give my honest opinion of the game. I’m no fanboy and im pretty good at reviewing games. This time tomorrow I will let you know if the game is worth a shit. Im going in with EXTREMELY low expectations…

          1. ||It doesn’t matter what you will think of it, true Metroid fans will never accept this abomination, period…||

            1. Well, to be fair I don’t really care what “true Metroid fans” think, even though I consider myself to be in that category. And honestly I can say the game does not feel like a Metroid game at all. From the intro, to the tutorial, to the first opening missions. It just doesn’t feel like Metroid. The exploration is very minimal, and you already have the full map of an area when you enter into it.(even though its greyed out you can still see it). The biggest offence this game makes IMO is the fact that everything is designed to be a coop game. So fucking annoying. You’ll never have a fun solo run of this game because every element in the game was designed for multiple people playing at the same time. It ruins the game completely for me. You know if this game was designed with the single player in mind, it could have actually been a good game, regardless of how the fanboys thought. I could go on about this game, but I’ll leave that to the real reveiwers. I will say the game looks great on the 3ds. Seriously its one of the best looking games on the system, and the soundtrack is actually very nice. The game sounds like Metroid 100%. But it falls flat everywhere else. 5/10 overall. Not worth $40 IMO, maybe $15 and even then try to pretend its not supposed to be a Metroid game.

              1. ||And honestly I can say the game does not feel like a Metroid game at all.||

                ||That’s enough for our case even though there are a lot of other things beyond wrong…||

  3. Yikes, some of you are spiteful.

    Next Level Games just did what they were told. If you don’t like Federation Force, then blame Kensuke Tanabe, since the whole thing was his idea to begin with.

    1. ||We’ve been at the mercy of fools just following orders, never again…||

      1. Not really. If it wasn’t for Nintendo Next Level games probably would have disappeared by now. Nintendo has kept them relevant. No way they could have turned that down and expected to get future work from Nintendo.

          1. Not really. They could have still turned it down. If Nintendo wants to be petty assholes & punish Next Level Games for not wanting to make Federation Force, that would have been better than what we got. Least it would have showed Next Level Games had principles of not wanting to vastly change a franchise many people love just the way it is while making Nintendo look like major assholes.

        1. They should have turned it down regardless. If Nintendo wants to be petty & not give them another job, fuck Nintendo. There comes a point where you should take a hit instead of following an order that is wrong. If doing the right thing means never working again, so be it. As Rorschach said: No compromise. Not even in the face of annihilation.

    2. Next Level did a good job on this game. The graphics are some of the best on the system and the soundtrack is stellar. IMO Next Level did thieir part, the only problem is that the design for the game was flawed. If your building a house on a crooked foundation doesnt matter how nice the house is, its still gonna be crooked. Whoever was the mastermind behind the idea of a coop Metroid game with no Samus Aran is the person that needs to be flogged here. That idea is a crooked foundation, Next Level was doomed from the start.

        1. ||Kid Icarus Uprising, Resident Evil Revelations, Nano Assault EX and Starfox 64 3D to add afew more…||

          1. Federation Force looks better than Nano Assault and Star Fox. Resident Evil is close, but I’d put my money on Federation Force there as well. Kid Icarus, which happens to be one of my favorite games on the 3ds looks slightly better imo. That could be my bias talking though as they both look fantastic… Id even say FF has less jaggies than Kid Icarus. Federation Force looks alot like Luigis Mansion. It has the same art style and the same look. Even the sound effects when you pick up mods is the same as on Luigis Mansion when you picked up keys… Look, love FF or hate it, but Next Level games don’t fuck around, they make high quality games, and Federation Force is no exception.

        2. I’ve played all those games, I own all those games.I didn’t say it had the absolute best graphics, I said some of the best. That means in my opinion it’s in the top ten best looking games on the 3ds. The game looks fantastic and if you haven’t actually played it on a 3ds with the 3d slider turned up you have no right to say otherwise. Everyone knows by now that screen shots of 3ds games never look as good as it they do the actual 3ds. And I have to say, the game look better than MK7 hands down. Not as good looking as Smash or OoT or ALBW though.

    3. Like Quadraxis said, there comes a point where maybe you shouldn’t follow an order that is only going to get you into as much trouble, if not more than, as the guy who gave you that order. So both Nintendo & Next Level share in the blame.
