Ghost Song is the Metroid we need and deserve


#12

When I saw the player character I thought it was TV robot from FLCL.

We won’t be getting a 2D Metroid game from Nintendo any time soon I’ll make do with this

I’m not really complaining (Or at least not trying to), hell your right as such a huge Super Metroid fan, and knowing Nintendo has no intention of giving me something like Super Metroid, I find this looking so much like it to be a real turn on…but at the same time it does kind of rub me the wrong way in how it almost looks like a complete rip off of Super Metroid. I also worry that with it looking so much like that it that I’ll spend the whole time comparing it to that game, and surpassing SM is honestly a herculean feat, I worry that it might end up working against the game.

I already have a problem with playing the CV games of this style and not spending the whole time going “Why am I not playing Super Metroid instead?”

I gave my money a couple of days ago. I hope it’s good. I really don’t want to hear crap else about it till it comes out though. Games like these need to keep its secrets close to the vest.


#15

How do you even mix these two games together? Totally different.

Also the guy you control looks more like MegaMan.

^Read the kickstarter page. He explains himself.


#17

This looks like a blatant re-skin of one enemy in Super Metroid, right down to how it moves. I’m all for more games as awesome as Super Metroid, but this might be a little too close to the source material.


#18

That’s what I’m sayin.


#19

Done


#20

I don’t mind rip-offs as long as the gameplay doesn’t suck. I could see myself playing this for a few minutes


#21

Dat gameplay


#22

I’ve been following this kickstarter for a while and talked to the developer he deserves every penny.

@Boel @furrycurry @fatboy Thanks for the support :tup: Rare fatboy on GD sighting! Hope you’re feeling better, you better be at evo next year.

It’s kind of funny that there have been so many metroidvanias in the past few years but this is the first one in recent memory at least that actually resembles Super Metroid. I totally get the “why play this over Super Metroid” argument, but the answer to that is…because it has a badass art style and it’s new. I feel the same way about SF4 every time I try to learn it I keep thinking “ehh it’s an okay game…but I feel like playing ST instead”…which is why I have a tremendous backlog :rofl:


#24

Becoming an NPC or Miniboss… Sounds awesome!


#25

Looks pretty neat. I want it.


#26

Yea I’ll give it an honest shot when it’s finished, here’s hoping it is a lot more “New” then it looks to be you know?


#27

I hope this gets funding for Wii U. Looks like it might be pretty fun.


#28

game looks really cool.


#29

This would be better if I did not think it was a re-skinned Metroid. Metrovania style adventure games are awesome but this is too similar to Super Metroid.
