We can't tell you everything that's being said in this newest trailer for Metroid: Other M -- not because we're jerks and don't want to, but because it's in another language. Japanese, to be specific. Thankfully, the characters introduced during this montage of CGI and in-game footage have their na...

Yes, there will be lots of interesting panels, swag, premieres, celebrities and other stuff at Comic-Con. Whatever. Nintendo just gave us the real reason the July 22-25 event is worth attending: a new Dragon Quest IX map. If you bring your DS to Nintendo's booth, with the game running in Tag Mode, y...

CVG is posting new footage of Metroid: Other M all week, starting with a weird cutscene depicting Samus as a space baby. We're happy to see these videos now, but we're also slightly hesitant, knowing that we're going to see them again as unskippable in-game FMV....

The "Q3" window for the European release of Metroid: Other M has been clarified. An ad in the MCV magazine listed the game for "September."

Metroid: Other M isn't just a side-scroller. It's a first-person shooter. And a third-person exploration game. And seemingly everything in-between. This trailer features a hodgepodge of perspectives, but how does it play? Stay tuned for our hands-on preview this weekend....

For most of us, "it's a new Metroid" is sufficient to ensure a pre-order of Metroid: Other M. That makes any extra items given away by retailers fully extraneous, though, of course, we'll take them. GameStop is offering a "collectible art folio" with pre-orders, containing 16 cards with art from Oth...

Nintendo delayed two of its big summer titles for Wii today: Metroid: Other M (to August 31) and Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (to June 27). When the company made the announcement, it provided no reasons. As it turns out, there is a decent reason for each delay. "As you may know, this game...

The last Metroid: Other M trailer confused us with its emphasis on storyline and dialogue over running and shooting. This latest trailer addresses that issue. Boy, does it ever. After Samus's armor mysteriously grows out of her glowing heart or something, we're treated to a nonstop barrage of the...

While we're happy to see any new media related to Metroid: Other M, this new trailer isn't doing much to build excitement. Here's a short list of Metroid standards missing from the video: Samus's suit Metroids Weapons But on the other hand, it has: The catchphrase used by the annoying AI ...
