Metroid: Other M Part 1

Metroid goes with the other M.

Watch Video

The link on the front page be broken yo.

EDIT: Never mind, all good now.

when i saw the title, i pee'd a little

DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DIDN'T

Well...

Actually didn't seem as bad as first thought.
EDIT: Ok, her voice sound's so DULL

Double thread?
I enjoyed the video as always. I laughed my ass of at the "Jesus how do you get into a suit like that?" line.

Seems more like the 'other M' stood for Monotone rather than Motherhood.

God that voice was dull and uninterested.

But anyway, funny episode.

Dear lord, I had heard the complaints, but I hadn't realized just how right they were. That voice was horrible! And it made her sound like a soulless person trying to act really whiny and self-absorbed.

I don't usually watch Unskippable, but when I do, its because make a video on a horrible game that I've played. Man, Other M was even worse than I remembered it to be. Anyways, great video. I should watch more of these.

I am sad. I am very sad. Can't you tell how sad I am by the very sad voice I am doing? Sad.

I'm telling you though, if I ever impregnate a woman, I am NOT sticking around for the Fireball Trimester. That shit sounds nasty.

Good lord that voice is draining.

Oh god that her voice? It's so dull! Ok I can get how it could be boring well realistically life threatening in her line of work (since the game make you go from point A to point B) but liven up a little! Good thing I didn't bought that game even when this shop had it for 18.

"Giving Samus a voice wasn't nearly so bad as what that made that voice say."

Truer words were never spoken written.

Coldster:

Stay thirsty, my friend.

Thank you UnSkippable, for reinforcing my "I don't gotta play this shit" stance.

Dear God, her voice. The monotone could put boring college professors to sleep.
I don't think it's possible for her to sound more bored at all.

It's like she really doesn't see any point in being there or adding life to the character at all or maybe she hated the story and the character and this is her rebellion...

Odd thing is...every time I see the title for this Metroid game, I can't help thinking of the title of the Sonic fancomic made by Ian "Potto" Flynn before he was hired by Archie to do THEIR Sonic comic.

Yes...the fancomic was called "Sonic - Other M". Yes...I'm fairly certain Ian was laughing his ass off when this game came out. No...I'm not sure if anyone did any kind of crazy mashup fanart/fancomic in response.

CAPTCHA: Kings 23. layedia

*walks up to the dias* A reading from Kings 23. *opens a book* And Layedia did ask unto the Lord...

(Sorry...had to do it...)

Oh god, people weren't kidding about this game.

And bad though the voice acting is, check out the dialogue they've got to work with. Brian Blessed couldn't make this shit lively.

Why is Samus babbling about babies the whole time? Have I missed something?

I always thought it was "Zee-bs" too (That may look wrong but it's the only the only way I can think of putting it.

The baby, the baby, the baby, the baby. For the love of god, give the franchise back to Retro where it belongs!

I love how making samus talk somehow conveys less emotion.

And this game feels way to fanservicy, I know the blue suite she was wearing was from zero mission but in that it seemed to provide more, um, support. She looks like a latex fetish model.

Oh and about the "why Ridly thing" that actually makes sense, Ridly killed her parents and while motherbrain is the, well, brains of the space pirates, Ridly is their commander.

What doesn't make sense is how why she breaks down in tears latter in the game when she faces him despite the fact that by that point she has defeated him 6 times.

And I always thought it was "Zee-bis/bus"

Wait, it's zeb-es? I always thought it was zeebz too.

Text would have been a better option than that voice actor.

It's not the actor that's the problem, in fact, she is one of the best and most used voices in the industry. The real issue is a script that looks like it was written by a drunken baboon.

They should have sought Linda Hamilton for sage like advice on how to do a kick ass opening monologue.

This game was a prime example of how a game could be ruined by the story. The whole bit about not powering up a part of your suit unless you were given a permission transformed the strongest hottest chick in the universe into a whiny little bitch no one gave a damn about. I especially hated the part when Ridley first came back, and Samus was frozen in fear.

The only upside was that it wasn't an FPS, which I really did like as an improvement to the game. But in all honesty, they could have made a really great looking side scroller and the game would have been even better.... I guess I have to play Super Metroid now. Good job.

double posting bastard!

that's what my mom always called me anyway.

:p

She's voiced by Jessica Martin. This is so far her only voice acting role. You're probably thinking of the Prime games where her grunts were recorded by Jennifer Hale.

If this is the actual script, then I can see why the voice actor isn't to blame. It reads like a bad adaptation of The Watchmen's narrative dialogue mixed with inner monologue from a "Teen in High School" movie.

Holy shit... it actually sounds like a robot John Wayne when Goldman talks, HAHA.

Wait... how did that guy polish her suit if it just warps onto her?

Tom Templeton:

I actually forgot how good the opening cutscene was in comparison to the rest of the game... trust me, it gets worse. Much, much worse.

You had one of the best female voice actors (Jennifer Hale) at your disposal, but you replace her with that? For shame, Nintendo. At least she could attempt to cover up your godawful writing.

Wow. This is NOT the Samus Aran I remember. Why did they make her voice so monotonous? WHY IN THE HELL?

(Whoa. Did I just reference last week's Feed Dump??)

I did like your bit with "we can see the inside of her gun"/"we can see the inside of her suit"/"Arguably a better selling point".

Anyway,... for some reason, now I feel like playing Asteroids...

NinjaDeathSlap:
I am sad. I am very sad. Can't you tell how sad I am by the very sad voice I am doing? Sad.

Before I get ninja'd

OT: I'm probably one of the only people in the world who actually thought this game was decent... The story was chocked FULL of major execution errors, I'm willing to admit, but... it wasn't not worth playing...
