Maybe I didn't express that well enough.  I mean close-range brawler-style action.  Long range blast-em-with-yer-lasers-but-if-they-get-too-close-you're-stuffed action is fine with me.

...actually two other people got what I meant so I obviously did express it well enough and Buska's just being dumb. Tongue

But the only melee move they've been showing is the counter used to stun attacking enemies, like in Samus Returns. And a new variant of it you do out of a dash.

I love Metroid even when it doesn't deviate that much from what it normally does. Super, Zero Mission, AM2R, Fusion and Samus Returns are some of my fave games ever. But I don't mind it branching out very slightly with one or two melee attacks.

I knew what you meant, I still think complaining about something having more karate is a baffling opinion. Anything would be improved by more karate.

I don't know much about Metroid but couldn't it be that Samus has been a bounty hunter longer, got better gear etc that she is more action then the first game.

This sort of lines up if you look at the chronological order of the series, as Other M had those counter attack moves for some enemy types which is set before Fusion and Dread. Mostly though it's just Mercury steam putting their stamp on the series & honestly I would quite like the parry to also be in Prime 4.

Ah okay.  So one of us didn't express it well enough. Razz

As long as they keep it to that, that's fine by me.  I personally just don't want there to be lots of finishers where Samus chokeslams Ridley into a pipe before shooting a missile down his throat, much though I'm sure the wrestling fans here would love it.

Good good good good good good. Good good good. Good.

I should probably contribute more and not artificially up my post count, but I've been avoiding a lot of the little snippets and videos Nintendo have been releasing as I'm pretty much sold*, and want as much as possible to be new to me.


*Only if the reviews say it makes your console explode or something. Which the NES version could do! Sorta.

Yeh, all I've seen is that initial reveal trailer & I will be keeping it that way.

Same actually! It's very rare to get surprised by a new game nowadays so I would love to experience the Dread with as little knowledge as possible for a change.

Going to be a great discussion once it's out though if most of us are able to keep it this way

As someone that's new to the series, these trailers are getting me excited for Dread.

All valid views. That trailer looks really nice but I don't think it gives away much new... but I definitely understand keeping away!

I've already made up my mind to play this - and in fact already started my 5-game run - so I don't feel much desire to watch trailers. Generally I find I regret watching anything but the earliest trailers for stuff nowadays. In some cases, even those are bad; I made the mistake of watching the trailer for the new Spider-man, which basically runs you through the key events of the first two acts!

Wow, that is a saving, as the cheapest place I found when I did a bunch of pre-orders awhile ago was £41.99.

That must have been a pricing error as it's showing as £49.99 again for me on Curry's. I'd have leapt upon that like a seagull on chips if it was still showing at that price!

Yeah it's a price error but they've yet to cancel my order and they've taken the £27.
