I saw Other M in the walmart bargain bin for 20 bucks a few days ago. Couldn't believe my eyes. Such a high profile Nintendo release shoved off in the nobody wants it box.
I really liked the game but I guess overall it wasn't too well liked by most. The Prime games felt more grand in scale if that makes any sense. I mean they were more polished and actually felt more like Metroid than Other M did. Plus as far as music goes the Prime games had much better soundtracks.


Which is pretty crazy, as Nintendo games take foreeeeever to drop in price. New Super Mario Bros is still 35!

Well, Other M is a horrible game. Good games take forever to drop in price. Pieces of **** like Other M get buried in Nevada deserts.

I got Other M for $10 new at an EB Games. Most stores I go to though like Future Shop or Walmart still have the game for $60. I would not buy it for that.

Western games aren't as huge in Japan as Japanese games. There's historically been a notion among the Japanese gaming community that Western games are s***, which has only recently started breaking down.

It's pretty amazing how thoroughly M:OM threw away any goodwill the fans had toward the series built up (albeit shakily at points) by Retro through the Prime Series.

If retro was making another Metroid game, the fans would be excited for it. Other M was pretty much doomed the moment team ninja was revealed as the developer. It was written off long before it came out.

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

Except the problem was not on their end, it was in the incredibly stupid writing and VA...
