More On: Metroid Other M
As about the only big Metroid fan on the staff I was pretty excited to see this new trailer for Metroid other M. We haven't seen the game in motion since the debut trailer at last year's E3 and this one is a feast for the eyes. What strikes me is just how fast and agile Samus is--after the more exploratory pace of the Prime trilogy they've really taken the series back to the acrobatics of the original 2D games. The switch between third and first person also looks nice and smooth, with plenty of aiming and action happening from Samus's visor perspective too. Other M is just a few months away with a June 27th release date, and I'll be counting the days.
