I started playing Metroid: Other M over the weekend and may not bother to finish it. Metroid has always been fairly standard "unlock the world" fare, occasionally marked by cool gear or an interesting take on her loner character. But Team Ninja massacred anything I appreciate about her loner persona by turning her into a soft, dependent airhead, and surrounding her with some of the most dry characters and dull pacing around. The gameplay is interesting enough, but kind of a mixed bag of controls and camera and so frequently interrupted by inexplicable control swaps and inane dialogue that... ugh. I hate venting, and especially feel guilty about doing it for a game I haven't completed, but I might just get into more detail later. Later.
