Where to start? How about with the Japanese story trailer that kicked off this sudden hype for the game. The video premiered on the Japanese Nintendo Channel and was kindly posted on Youtube by some chap. It featured less of Samus alone, and more of her with the team of Space Marines you come across at the beginning of the game. It seems Samus Aran is already acquainted with one of the Marines, Anthony Higgs, but the others seem to have different views of the bounty hunter. After all, the group is lead by Adam Malkovich, a fella that Samus seems to have had a few rows with in the past. Later on in the trailer Samus, along with the Space Marines, run into a room only to have a massive disgusting purple alien blob thing fall from the ceiling. This opens up a boss fight which involves Samus battling the beast with her newfound comrades. Later, tragedy follows with screams and shouts from both Sammy and the Marines. Will any of them survive later on? Well, get the game to find out.
|Samus' new voice is ace.|
At the time of posting, the most recent news is some review scores that have popped-up on the internet. japanese gaming site gave it an impressive 9/9/8/9 and some other site by the name of @Gamer gave it a 4/5. So far so good, but what are my views on Other M? Well, it's a definite must buy for me. The game looks amazing and it's too bad it actually comes out the day after I go back to school. Luckily that day is a Friday, so I'll be able to play it over the weekend! It's only one week and two days till Other M hits the UK shelves. Do yourself a favour and buy it.
