@Miyamotosan No, it's a working for a publisher that sells Switch games situation, i.e. a perspective built from fact rather than paranoid speculation.

@robfielding You believe what you want to believe, dude. All I can say is I know from direct experience that Nintendo neither influences digital pricing or any sales reductions. Hope that tinfoil hat isn't too tight.

@Miyamotosan Nintendo has absolutely zero influence on eShop pricing, it's purely the publisher's decision.

@shadow-hachi I think he's (futilely) trying to counter some of the knee-jerk pile-on this game has received, largely from people who don't have a clue what they're talking about but are happy to quote misinformation from any source that conforms to the hivemind consensus that 'EA = Evil".

Not defending microtransactions, but genuinely interested to know: if MTs were made 'illegal', where would that leave things like Pokemon cards, action figure blind bags, Panini cards... i.e. physical items that have a similar 'random content' mechanic?

@Murton No they don't. They need to examine the issue and the reasons why micro-transactions et al exist. They need to educate gamers on how much games cost to make and sell. At least if gamers understand what's involved, they won't have a shit-fit all the time.

@JoelStinty The popularity of Digital Foundry, the success of PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, and the pixel-obsessed fartings of the PC Master Race give the lie to that notion - the average punter not only wants the prettiest games they expect them to last 40hrs plus for less than £50. This industry is fucked any way you look at it - then the bleating will really start.

Is it me or is this all getting a bit hysterical now? People who buy this game are drug addicts - FFS!!

BTW, is anyone going to address the elephant in the room: that gamers want their games to bigger and better than ever before yet don't want to pay any more for them?

How do you geniuses square that circle?

@TheStoneRoses Thanks for the heads-up: just had a nose at Smega-Gazz's posts in the Odyssey comments. Hilarious!

"Can you please explain to me why everything in it isn't shit like in Zelda, which was shit?

"What? I'm not trolling: I'm just a humble consumer looking for unbiased info so I can spend £400 on a Switch and Mario... Why so angry?

"I know it's got nearly 100% on Metacritic, but why won't anyone tell me about the shit bits? Is it a conspiracy by the MSM in the pay of Nintendo or in fear of gun-toting fanboys?"

@mega-gazz I'm not seeing much 'discussing' going on, just the same comments repeated ad nauseum, untroubled by counter-argument.

Far from being defensive, I'm bemused as to why you feel the need to keep posting the same thing over and over - is the Switch's popularity really that distressing to you?

I wish twats wouldn't keep saying it's 'just an endless runner' - as anyone who's actually played it would know, it's much more sophisticated than that. In fact, I'd say Nintendo pulled off an amazing job creating a genuinely Mario-like experience for one-thumb controls.

@abigsmurf C'mon, I think some of the responses went way beyond just having an opinion!

The reality is we know very little about how the game plays yet. It may not be the Metroid we all want, but it may still be a good game and, if nothing else, it keeps the brand alive.

Let's wait and see, shall we, before throwing hissy fits?

I want a new 'proper' Metroid as much anyone, but the tantrums from the entiled men-children when this was first shown was just... embarrassing.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. I'll wait until the reviews come in to decide whether to buy it or not, and if it don't like it when I play it then I'll decry it as shit.

@Madder-Max Thanks for the *slightly* patronising response. As someone who was in their teens when they played the original Elite on the original Beeb - and, at the time, enjoyed it - I was hoping for a little more than the same thing but with better graphics.

Are you confusing its vast scale and the endless tedious grinding to upgrade with depth? Because that's all that ED really offers.

I'm a huge SW fan and not a hardcore FPS player, and this game is perfect for me - I love it! Yes, it could do with a few more maps but, on a personal up-side, given the limited free time I have I've been able to actually learn the ones there. Roll on the Season Pass!
