I know that, but despite Samus having Chozo DNA in her, i think the heels are still a bit of an odd choice. That doesn't mean I hate them, but they still could have gone with rocket boots without the heels.
at least her face is an updated version of ZSS's brawl face i would of called off on the whole heels thing, cus its impractical to wear heels on a fist fight. sure SOME other women can do it, but samus is the last woman i think of when it comes to women that wear heels that happens to be fighters. however, they are jet boots, they perform a function rather than being their for the sake of reminding players that shes a woman (side note, hence her cup size is a tad bigger now( though what gets me is that, nintendo themselves doesn't seem to realize what their own character is capable of... she has super soldier properties, even without her suit. in brawl, it WAS applied, but barely delivered, since she can be easily knocked back. but now, this MAY seem a step forward into realizing that she is still able to fight without her power suit, they must needed something to add into her power. and so she dawns the jet boots...
Really? Because in Zero Mission it wasn't possible to kill anything in her Zero suit, Team Ninja went out of their way to troll Samus in Other M, everytime she fought a boss she cowered and stood perfectly still, the boss grabbed her and she took off her power suit (why the **** does she take it off every 2 seconds?) then started screaming "HELP ME!" then Anthony has to save her at the last second, in all the others she's the Terminator and never once displays emotion, guys worship her for that, to me I just see her as an extremely unrelatable, uninteresting character, despite being one of the coolest/sexiest, same goes for In Prime 1-3 when she walks she looks normal, in Other M she imitates a runway model walk, I like how she's approachable and somewhat realistic/relatable, but I hate how she spends the first half of the game whining "The baby died for me, everytime I close my eyes I see him... I miss him, he died for me." WE GET IT THE METROID YOU DON'T NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT FOR 2 HOURS STRAIGHT! in the second half of the game she spends the entire time saying crap like "I like it when Adam gives me orders, the adrenaline I get from obeying Adam, my father figure, is unsurpassable, he makes me feel like a woman." I was just cringing the entire time saying "This is horrible, but it's Samus. And she's talking." over and over and over and over from beginning to end. Lara Croft is well developed, she's just a woman who wants adventure and to accomplish something, she's strong and relatable, you don't see her as this emotionless robot or extremely emo little girl (Samus) and she *Quicktime Event appears* *I don't press the button fast enough* *Message deletes itself*
In the prime games, they DID show what kind of character samus was, WITHOUT the use of long winded words or boring cutscenes of her talking like some private eye. in prime 2, she would of just left the planet, after finding out what happened to the G/F squad. but she didn't, she went on to figure out just what the hell is going on, figuring out what the hell is going on, fixing that problem, and she did it for FREE. shes a bounty hunter, she mostly get paid to do some crazy task, but not today. she just waves at them goodbye. that final scene really shows how much of a good guy greg she really is...
and OMG, you just summed up those stupid dialogues from other M XD i knew something was really wrong when she talked about adam, at first it felt like shes trying to make us like him, but in reality he was clearly a DICK, but what you summed up... "I like it when Adam gives me orders, the adrenaline I get from obeying Adam, my father figure, is unsurpassable, he makes me feel like a woman." <there's no bloody way ANY KIND of woman will stoop down and say such a horrible thing in this modern generation. and that flashback... where he DOESN'T let her save HIS own brother... jesus fuckin christ...
AND THEN ANTHONY DISCOURAGES HER "regrets" i believe, by saying that "she was just a puppy back then" it-its like... NNNUUUGHGHFHweashydtrsgrWEsryeurdyjfnhgfsadsa i wished that WHOLE scene was CHANGED! so that she just sprints off and DOES save him at the nick of time, disobeying orders, AND THEN REALIZING THAT SHES BETTER OFF AS A BOUNTY HUNTER! I JUST LITERALLY!!! REWROTE THAT STUPID SCENE!!! AND MADE IT BETTER AND MORE UNDERSTANABLE *drops the mic*
now if only we could do that the ENTIRE game... TL;DR: yoshiro sakamoto wrote this out of perversion...
I rewrote the intro but I knew no one was gonna read it so I turned it into a comedy en1gma92.deviantart.com/journa… (honestly this is Saints Row type comedy that could pass as official retail development compared to that ****ty fanfiction Team Pervert made) "ADAM, PLEASE, LET ME SAVE HIM! I CAN DO IT!" *camera zoomed in on her bare ass which is painted blue for 5 seconds before he replies*
I agree. Samus usually demonstrates that women are just as capable of being tough badass heroes that men are typically used for. Other M ditched this concept. The people who made that game made Samus' personality and behavior what they expect a "typical" woman "should" have.
And they were obviously all men. If they at least had a woman who also made design decisions, they would know that things like high heels would be impossible to work with in combat, or any physical activity. I can just imagine...
Team Ninja development office:
"Hey guys, we should add high heels to Samus' design for this game, because Samus is a woman and women are supposed to wear high heels all the time!"
"Yes you are right! That would make the game more realistic and people would enjoy it more. Let's do it!"
I learned from Samus that women are able to be extremely tough/stylish/scary while still remaining extremely feminine/sexy en1gma92.deviantart.com/art/OC… (profile pic)
I desperately wanted to like Team Ninjago's Samus but it's not possible, I have no interest in Nintendo's because they gave her poor character development, she's a robot who never once displays the slightest bit of emotion, she just flies over to a planet, kills everything, blows it up then flies to a new planet With Other M she cries about the dead Metroid for the first half of the game then confesses her love for Adam who she also views as her father figure (creepy) in the second half, she's pretty realistic but in a bad way, she's like a real person and I love seeing that but she's basically a 13 year old girl who cuts herself all day long while complaining about how much she hates therapy to her Facebook friends
Well really, Team Ninja just does things like that with all their girls. If I remember right, Nintendo told them NOT to give Samus things like heels, but their art team did anyways. Apparently they let it slide. I'm not too happy about heels either, but I do my best to just ignore them. Besides, Samus has pretty much perfect coordination and superhuman abilities. If anyone can pull off having heels in combat, she can.
Yeah you're right. I'm sure she could handle being what Team Ninja envisions a person should be if they have a vagina instead of a penis, no matter what their background or legitimate characteristics are supposed to be!
Team Ninja are assholes! One day, the REAL Samus will walk into their building and use a power bomb!
Team Ninja wasn't in charge of character design, though. Nintendo was. All Team Ninja was in charge of was gameplay and, even then, Nintendo limited what they were allowed to do. Heck, Nintendo forced them to stick with the NES-style controls despite the obvious restrictions.
Really? I had thought that Nintendo had approved and published the game as usual but that Team Ninja developed it. It would be interesting and useful to learn more about this. Do you have a source of information?
And if it's true, thanks for pointing this out! (I would hate to have been misinformed the entire time!)
Team Ninja was in charge of programming and modeling. D-Rockets was in charge of cutscenes. Everything else (intentionally bland voice acting, laughable dialogue, level design not allowing for much exploration or experimenting, etc.) was Nintendo, specifically Sakamoto.
Even if heels were Team Ninja's idea (they weren't), Sakamoto was in complete control. All he would have had to do was tell them no.
OK, since you're tracking down and replying to every single one of my comments (which is kind of ridiculous), it looks like you would like to be involved with this idea. So, because I'm a nice person, I agree with that!
So here's the new version: You happen to be standing right next to Adam when that happens. And you also get covered in debris. Yay!
