And This Is Why I Don't Trust G4 Game Reviews...

So, I've been watching the progress of the latest Metroid game, and to be honest, I was initially concerned. The use of just the Wii Remote for all control seemed like it would be a big problem if it wasn't done properly. I was also kinda iffy on Team Ninja touching Samus, especially after the development team went through all kinds of drama a few years back. I was also worried that Samus would jiggle in her armor like the female characters in the Dead or Alive series. That superficial concern has been put to rest, with Samus and her armor being "normal". As far as the gameplay, I'll reserve my opinion for the review that I'll deliver next week.

I am having issue with some of the reviews and puppets who are reading them. While deciding whether I wanted to even touch this topic, I combed through a number of reviews for Other M. After reading five, I only found one that was blatantly negative. Now, far be it from me to fire shots at gamers for their opinions, but the good folks at G4, have proven that they are nothing more than "Nintendo haters". They generally swing from the collective sacks of every big budget title that's released on Microsoft and Sony's systems, and even went so far as to praise Sony for the "innovation" of Playstation Move while reacting to the Nintendo 3DS with a shrug. I'm not about to whine about this, though, since folks with sense can see it.

The review will be up next week after I get to spend quality time with Metroid Other M. then I'll move on to something else, since being a fanboy is lame.
