Not to mention the extra hand-holding, with the map telling you where to go next and that early ledge-grabbing power-up for people who can't into 2D platforming.
Also not really a fan of her power armor being retconned into some kind of hologram, that is also tied to her ship or something. You can't just do that if you don't even have her shout "Henshin!"

That pissed me off more than anything. While I don't think it is complete trash and is a good game for someone who has never played them before, it kind of defeats the purpose of exploring and actively discourages it.

It's like the person who designed it had a focus test full of morons playing Super Metroid and was scared of people being stuck.

That's really every Nintendo focus group from like 2000 on. If it were made today they'd probably have some mode where the game plays itself for you

Hand holding isn't that bad as long as there is an option to turn them off. Some old games gave me dark times and ultimately made me quit due to fuck you DIY attitude, I don't mind hand holding. Please hold my hands, it's better experience than going through FAQ and shit.

That being said, best Metroid is The Scheme because one of the best video game soundtrack ever ever though the game itself is more like Shitroid but Metroid itself is kinda shit already (yes I said it, metroid is kinda shit) who cares.

It's great. I had a blast with it. Looks fantastic too with the new HD backgrounds and moving sprites.

I wonder if this'll be like with the last game, were literally every YT shill only ever cared about that one Napoleonic war mod.

The napoleonic war mod that wasn't even good? The best warband mods are the jap one for weebshittery and some indochina one that probably doesn't work anymore.

But most of the time I just play warband with the mod that adds some alternate weapon animations/uses and call it a day. Even vanilla is quite excellent.

I'm mostly rocking vanilla with the diplomacy mod because I'm lazy when it comes to looking for mods.
And yes, that mod. The multiplayer only one. Which all those YT yokels like Angry Joe streamed, ignoring pretty much everything else about Mount & Blade. If you'd just followed those shills, you'd think that's all M&B is.
