The gamepad would consistently be Samus' first person view, with visor and everything set up, and the top would be side scrolling, and you can switch between the two at the press of the minus button.

I feel like I would throw up, but the concept sounds interesting no?

Probably the best way they could marry the concepts of first-person and third-person exploration, though I know not everyone will be happy with it.

Since it seems like it'd be a waste to use the Gamepad for nothing but the nice first-person perspective, I reckon scanning gameplay would work wonderfully on the hardware.

I'd like another take on O:M gameplay

Distilled Ninja Gaiden where holding one button then releasing, and spamming missiles in first person mode was not that great of a Metroid experience.

3rd parties on Nintendo franchises can be sometimes good, like with F-Zero, and Star Fox Assault. Tecmo was a bad choice though.

Obviously the game needs fixing, but it was an interesting premise.

Also, you say OM wasn't good, but then say Star Fox Assualt was? Wa-wa-what? Also don't forget Capcom's Zeldas, those were great

I've played all the recent Ninja Gaidens, so going from those to Metroid Other M, I want to say they even used the same game engine, although I'm not certain. It just felt too simple.

Talk about extreme laziness when you get the gravity suit. I bet they worked on the cutscenes first, with Samus in one suit, and this was the reason why it doesn't change throughout the game.

Star Fox Assault was fun, even though it had interesting controls. I appreciated it. It was more memorable than Metroid Other M, to me. That's saying much, considering how old Assault is in comparison.

Nintendo's insistence on making you use Wiimote only hurt the concept.

Didn't they try something like that with Metroid Other:M? Though to hear most people talk that Metroid game is not even worthy of its name.
