    Gotta respect Nintendo for making that video, though.

    I would call it a cancellation and the start of a new game.

    It sucks that we'll have to wait a lot longer for the next Metroid Prime game, but I understand that this is for the best, they recognized that they were fundamentally unhappy with the game and instead of just finishing it and releasing a game they were unhappy with like a lot of lesser companies would, they went back to square one to do it properly and brought Retro Studios back on board, we'll almost certainly get a better game as a result of this decision.

    It is certainly encouraging that Retro pitched for the new game.

    Retro Studios can take all the time they need for another Metroid Prime game, really. With their track record, people have a lot of trust in them, and delay or not, they will deliver.

    Metroid Dread kind of gives Nintendo the win this E3, not that this is saying a whole lot.

    I recently got into these games hardcore. Been tempted to for ages, but I wanted to play the classic 2D ones chronogically, and I had no GBA or 3DS, so I never dipped my toes into the series. I know Metroid was on NES initially, but the game is clunky so i wanted to play Zero Mission. But the one I really wanted to play was Super Metroid anyway, so I said screw it and started there. Had an absolute blast with that game. I love SNES games, and this was just a classic start to finish.

    That made me decide to play Dread next cause I have a Switch (I used Nintendo Online for Super Metroid). This game is gorgeous and super fun, but I sucked at the melee stuff. I mostly stopped using it and played it like I did Super Metroid with the exception of the final boss and the EMMIs. I didn't love the EMMIs mostly cause by the 5th or 6th robot, it felt monotonous. I loved the intensity and the idea, but it was always the same encounter. But even with those small gripes, Dread was great.

    I found out wife had a Gamboy Advanced SP, but she lost the charger. So I invested in a charger and it worked just fine. So I acquired Fusion and Zero Mission and played those. Quite enjoyed them. Felt like Super Metroid, only slightly scaled down cause of ya know....GBA has fewer buttons and all that. Though the Space Jump in Fusion worked really poorly. Made bosses like Nightmare where you need to do it a lot hard. Kind of felt like it worked when it decided it would work.

    I do wish Samus Returns had more options than trying to get a 3DS and then getting the game. Not sure it is worth how much both would cost me. Especially since I wasn't good at the melee in Dread, and I know SR is heavy on the melee.
