Yeah, you are right. I edited the quote from a NOE rep into my post. Unless Nintendo is being extremely misleading.... I don't see how Craig's prediction could be true.

There are a number of banned sources, due to poor information, regular fabrications, and click-farming headlines.

Write to Ami with a list of times the site you want discussed was correct and I'm sure he'll re think his stance. until then appreciate that there is a place where shit rumors are kept at bay as much as possible, and plausible ones get the airtime that we all want them to, and that place is GAF.

Edit: darn autocorrect changed plausible to audible. I changed it back.

I'm pretty sure these two will be available in Europe soon. You just need to blame NoA. :P

Both are being localized in English, actually.
The question is if we'll see them in NA.
I'm betting we will. That's an awful lot of money to localize two giant RPGS for just Europe.

You're right, but I'd like to think (in fact, I know) that GAF members are smart enough to recognize what a reliable source is compared to someone just spewing something. Regardless, we haven't seen anything really THAT shocking coming from ANY rumors. Everything is at least worth a look and discussion.

Well, tons of stuff gets through and sometimes it is hard to keep track of who's who. Keeping the absolute shit out does help.

I assume it will be playable on the show floor, as in people lining up. I know, at the very least, press will be playing the system after the conference. It wont be Nintendo demoing the thing on stage then calling it a wrap. Hands-on baby.

I dunno, they released Baiten Kaitos 2, didn't they? My only reasoning for holding out hope of them localizing both titles at this point is that besides SS, Wii has literally NOTHING else in the pipeline.

I'm pretty damn sure that is just a map from UT3 with Samus modeled in. The second shot gives it away, as I remember many kills there :P.

Still, looks good.

Actually yes. That first shot looks like its from Lair of the Shadow Broker maybe. Im pretty sure that second shot is UT3 though.

Samus doesn't have many lighting effects on her armor in the first shot, so it stands out.

Nice looking fakes though. A third person shooter/action metroid game could be pretty cool if done right.

Yeah, the environment looks good, but the Samus model looks below Metroid Prime quality.

some people have mental breakdowns when developers dont meet their insane expectations. there's always a few bannings as a result. the wii music year took many lives.

That would be an interesting change of direction. Weren't the first rumors about the first 3D Metroid saying that it would be a third-person game?

I completely missed E3 that year, thankfully.

Retro had ideas for it originally, I believe. I think it was Miyamoto that told them to switch to a first person perspective.
