I remember when I first beat Metroid and it turned out the mighty bounty hunter was secretly a horse in power armor.

Speaking to Mashable, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie had this to say about the new Metroid backlash:

What the fan at home saw was something in the Metroid Prime universe that they weren't expecting. The reaction has been negative. There's no sugar coating it. This is an example where fans who aren't able to get their hands on the game may be at a bit of a competitive disadvantage. Everyone who has played what we are showing regarding Metroid Prime, they've come across really pleased. My ask is that fans trust us.


I only have so much trust to give, Reggie.  He goes on to discuss Nintendo's approach to creating new games in a franchise, saying "We believe that in order to propel the franchises forward, we have to be the ones to constantly challenge the paradigms, challenge the conventional wisdom, challenge what we thought was the essence of the particular franchise, and a particular form of gameplay."

Will you give Metroid Prime: Federation Force a chance? Are you willing to believe Nintendo nailed the "essence" of the franchise with this entry?

Best Of: Hey Man You See That Guy Over There?

Another day, another super exploitable meme format. 

"Hey Man You See That Guy Over There" started in April as a webcomic by Facebook user Florkofcrows. The comic, which features two sock men is supposed to represent the feeling of outrage when a person likes someone you don't. This outrage is basically the premise of many internet exchanges, so naturally the macro has been edited to reference various video games, comics and fandoms. Here are some of our favorite examples.

Funny webcomics of Hey Man You See That Guy OVer There memes, a lot of them have to do with anime, gaming, video games, skyrim, nintendo, xbox,.
