Samus' look in Other M is in fact how she looked before the Prime Games, IIRC, Other M is settled between Metroid and Metroid 2, I could be mistaken, though. Samus was still under Adam's command, thus the different look. That doesn't mean this'll be her look all game long, could be a flashback...

It's funny, all the people who assume that since Team Ninja is working on Other M means that Samus'll get a massive makeover.

Considering Itagaki (Mister DoA, though I'm hardly complaining) is gone, there's a chance that the remnants have a shot at reeling in their characters.

I would like to point out that it's team ninja MINUS Itagaki, the guy responsible for the huge jubblies and such in Dead or Alive, so I go in with a bit more of a positive light

Don't worry too much. Nintendo still has to validate the final product. There's no way Team Ninja can give Samus a DOA Boob Job with the guys who created Metroid looking over their shoulders.

they are totally going to make samus what it isn't I suppose no more supposedly strong woman in the game you will travel in her adventures trying to uncover her chest with new improved silicon morph balls chesticles edition along with how she fells and if she could ever find the man of her dreams

I wonder if our wonderful artist will ever create a Touhou-centric comic.

Also, many people complained of her being 'ugly'. She's just not... soft. She has really severe looks because she is a serious person. Samus has a tragic, if not terribly detailed backstory, so she's not gonna go around smiling all the time. She looks bad-ass, like she's gonna kick your butt.
Darchias
over 14 years ago
I have to say, you giving Other M Samus cleavage is a little unfair. Sure, Team Ninja updated her cup-size, but they were really restrained with her clothing in those screen shots (odds are 2-1 that she has on short-shorts, but we don't know that yet.)

[url=#user_comment_24600]@no[/url]: Samus *had* a story. It was told several times in the past. She was a child on some planet that was attacked by Space Pirates. Her family was killed, and she was rescued by the Chozo, who trained her and augmented her, finally giving her her power suit.
ArmsAreLoud

I like me some character development, fun characters can make a game that would otherwise be lame (see: FE: Path of Radiance vs. all the ones after it). I hate it when video games try to have a deep story, though, due to their inability to actually have one.
no
over 14 years ago
yes sam doesn't need a story. I agree with you mr. comic maker. The only story she needed was. There is a tyradactil that shoots fire on this planet. Go kill it. She is pretty cool guy, who doesnt afraid of any thing.

@ Everyone who thinks this is about boobs.

The boobs are a joke, not the complaint.

The complaint is about nearly every recent game being forced to have a deep story, leaving no room for arcade-style fun.

@Tal-con: I don't mind it having story (or the lack of it) I just think -no matter what char. development it have- people will complain about it because Samus isn't like what they have in mind.

I disagree with Nerf Now author. Nintendo has been criticized for not having deep stories and the like. "hurp derp save the princess" is how it goes. I want some character development. I want a relatable character for the Wii console.

...You do realize that the Metroid (and Fire Emblem, I guess) series has been clear evidence that Miyamoto's a closet pervert since forever, right?
Troll
over 14 years ago
Well, when I think at the beginning most people thought (including me) that Samus was just a guy/person who shoots aliens, but now she's a victim of the internet with all those naughty pictures
hope other M will be a good game


oh crap, must find and buy mischief makers

[url=#user_comment_24495]@Katana[/url]: (Re:Does this not sound like Halo / Unreal / Doom / Worse?) I'd say that Metroid did it first, but this really goes back much further than 1986. What about Robotron?

[url=#user_comment_24566]@Moogles[/url]: But when you make this comic and link the screenshots you are talking about with no type of over sexual theme in the shots, the entire joke is moot.

@Mr Manly Man
Dude, you Know Team Ninja's Fame about giant boobs and cleavages don't you? that's the joke.

1. There was no cleavage in those screenshots
2. The original Metroid featured Samus in a BIKINI. Things aren't getting more sexual. You're getting older.

Well, I must say the last Samus is really ugly (no suprise there) [I don't regard that very young boy with very big chest from the official screenshots as Samus, but he's really ugly too. He looks like a girl.. ]

The screen shots you linked don't reflect this joke at all.

There was no cleavage and Samus didn't seem to be losing any awesome factor.

From what some releases have said the woman in the shots (13 and 14 are the best shots) of the link isn't samus aran but someone else :3

Well the screen shots are pretty good. And it is still first and foremost an action game. Looks like it's going to have the same kind of Ninja Gaiden style action and Samus isn't going to get the DoA look for her looks like flash backs. So here's hoping that it doesn't fall flat on it's face.

Because destroying archeological remains will generally lose you the respect of the the archeological community. Lara Croft is What It Says On The Tin. A Tomb Raider.

I'm pretty sure Samus in her Other M suit doesn't have an obnoxiously low-cut suit combined with oversized Dead or Alive-style tits, Jo.

Haven't been keeping up with Other M news as of late so I have this to say:

If they take away the one respectable female video game character I've been able to find (while Zelda is an admitted close second) I am going to have a bitchfit.

I don't blame you for your thoughts on the series change, but I sort of saw Metroid as this: You are a faceless person (not woman, PERSON) who travels to planets hunting and shooting everything in sight, often for a vague reason.

Does this not sound like Halo / Unreal / Doom / Worse?
