Metroid: Dread

Well the game's release date is just around the corner. https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/metroid-dread-switch/

Personally I don't care for the melee attack returning (and I really hope that a segment like the Diggernaut chasing you across the map does not make a comeback), but I'll pick this up since I did buy my Switch with this game in mind. I had thought that Retro studios was doing this but apparently MercurySteam was once again contracted for the job. They treated Samus respectably with their remake of Metroid II so hopefully we see it here too. I'm also hoping that Yoshio Sakamoto hasn't pulled any of that Other M garbage. The man needs to know when he's made a mistake and not repeat it.

Can't wait to play this one. Feels weird getting excited over a MercurySteam game, but Samus Returns was lots of fun.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

For me Samus Returns doesn't hold a candle to AM2R.
Still after decades of Dread nearly being an urban legend, I'm psyched to play it.

@X: I heard they tweaked the melee attack thingy to make it more optional or some such. I wasn't a fan of it either.

Inccubus@

I read about that too. That's the only thing that's making it somewhat acceptable. Samus can now move while performing a melee attack rather then stand in one spot.
