    So I've been a regular visitor and reader at this site for a while now, skimming the forums, checking updates etc... and I have to wonder:
    Where the $#%* is the hype, the excitement, the ANYTHING about Metroid Prime 3?!??! I mean come ON, we're all drooling and frothing at the mouth over SSBB, and all hyped up for SM Galaxy, and these games don't come out till the end of the year! Prime 3 is MERE WEEKS AWAY PEOPLE!!!
    Just look at the permanent game threads under "gaming"
    We've got one for Twilight Princess, SSBB, even one for Mario Strikers, but NOT for the supposedly massively anticipated new Metroid?
    What's WITH you people, does no one care? I'm practically pulling my hair out having to wait till the end of August, and all seems dreadfully quiet here regarding what could well be the best game for the Wii. Ever. It's possible....
    SO - am I missing something? Where's the frickin' METROID LOVE, PEOPLE!!?!??! :yikes:

    Here's some love for MP3! Gotta remember, these are difficult games and alot of the people on this forum are too young to get into that. Also, not having Wifi has disappointed alot of people as well. It does seem to be lacking some hype around here, maybe that will change in the coming weeks.

    i've played and beatened Metroid Prime, Metroid Fusion, and Metroid Zero Mission, and in my opinion i'm not hyped because there isn't enough action. most of it is backtracking.
    However, i did love fighting the tough/fun bosses, like Omega Pirate, Thardus, Mechanical Security Bot, The BioOrganic Manta Ray from Fusion, and all forms of Ridley.
    When i saw my friend play Metroid Prime 2, though, i was thinking, it's great that the worlds are getting bigger, but then there's too much jumping around on platforms, too many puzzles. I was bored often whenever i saw him play, and he needed a strategy guide to figure how to get to the next part of the game. If mp3 kept going in this direction, i'm pretty sure i'd rather not bother with it.
    all i want from this one is more challenge, and more obvious goals.

    who cares about online, metroid prime has always been about you exploring the world for your self, not like the ds version where everyone buys it to play online and skip the single player

    i, for one, am glad it doesnt have online, cause when u make a game online, it lowers the single player capabilities, and for a metroid prime game i want the most i can get

    and yes, i am also hyped for mp3 and cant wait till Aug 27

    I for one am heavily dissapointed. Call me whatever you like, but I want online play. I had always expected an in-depth story mode, so theres nothing to hype about. No surprises...

    I have beaten Metroid Prime 1 and 2 and they were my favorite GC games, aside from Brawl. I WILL NOT be buying MP3 on release date and probably wont get it until the price comes down. I'm simply not too excited for it, I can wait. I DO however need one good single player game to hold me over. No, this wont be Super Mario Galaxy either, it'll be RE4. Call me crazy but I am saving MP3 and Mario Galaxy to buy when there is a game drought. Hopefully Strikers and RE4 will hold me over until Brawl, then Mario Kart. I wont be getting MP3 or SMG for a very, very long time.

    I don't care a crap about online. Online is fun, but to me a good 1-player game is awsome.

    People obbsess over online games and I don't see why. Really, I'm not getting Brawl because of the online, I am getting it because I've seen videos of it, and it seems fun. Super Mario Galaxy just looks incredible. I can't wait for the game. Super Mario Galaxy will be really fun, and I can see myself playing it all day. My favorite game is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, and that's a 1-player game. Really the only reason people get Halo is because of all the violence and the online. I don't see why people think Violent games are fun. That's the reason GTA is so popular, it's all about violence. I like all the Mario games, and they don't have to be very violent to be good.

    Anyway, I'm getting off topic.

    I might get Metroid Prime 3, and I agree that it's not getting enough attention. Same with Super Mario Galaxy. All the hype is on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Why? because it has online. Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 need more attention

    ^Halo and Metroid could not be more different.

    Mind explaining your reasoning?

    Ye I agree, when there is online there is so much more to a game. Once you beat the single player you still have hours of fun in the online play. Also I think the fact that it is a slow shooter as in not much action kinda disapoints me, since I did own an xbox before I am use to game like Halo. Well when it come out I will decide, I mite still buy it but I really wanna try the Metriod series before I do.

    I can't even begin to fathom why people say they have played/beaten Metroid Prime 1 and 2, but don't really care about the new one. You people must be crazy in the brain. Those were two of the best action/adventure games EVER, not just for the GC. Of course you could get bored WATCHING someone play them, and of course if you aren't clever enough to solve the challenge that Metroid has ALWAYS brought to the player then you're gonna need a strategy guide.
    Metroid has always been one of the MOST in-depth, challenging, mysterious, adventurous and rewarding game experiences in the world.
    I say, stop crying phony tears about "no online", which has NEVER been what's great about the series, and stop nitpicking ridiculous things like "too much puzzles, not enough puzzles, too much/not enough action" and just find out for yourselves when it comes out.
    You naysayers are gonna be crapping bricks when you realize what you're missing. MP 3 is gonna school EVERYTHING in the Wii library hands-down, except maybe Zelda: TP.
    There's always gonna be apathetic cynicism on the net, but the Prime series deserves better than a bunch of "meh....." in my opinion.
    It's gonna RULE! JUST ACCEPT IT!!! WAH-hahahahahahhhaha.......

    I think that its amazing that the same people who will complain " Nintendo dont love the hardcore gamer anymore" will be the ones who wont buy Metroid. It will be great. If its better than Echoes it will go into my top 5 of all time. It will certainly be better than anything on the Wii at the moment. (Although Im European so Ive never played Paper Mario.)

    the first metroid was better than the second, the second became a little repetative cause you kept having to go into the dark counterpart of each land. so it got kinda annoying to me.

    on the halo and metroid note, halos campaign is absolutley terrible, not even worth playing, and online is full of kids who take it to seriously. so halo is not even that great of a game no matter how you look at it.

    and i for one. am very excited for MP3, and it definitly isnt getting any hype, because there really isnt much to talk about it. such as Brawl, is getting updates every weekday. idk and idc. MP3 is going to be an awesome game, and whoever doesnt get it is just missing out.
