Is it? I would hazard there are a lot more FPS games with a realistic style than there are chibi-styled.

I didn't mean there's lot's of FPS chibi style games but that the chibi style itself is just as generic as space marines.

But you don't play main Chibi game though Jas but then again if it went for Space Marines for the visuals likes of Balla could say similar, it's a hard one maybe they should of gone for the semi-realistic.

Not sure what you mean here because of that typo, also I was just saying the game would have appealed to me a lot more if the art style was more in line with a traditional Metroid which wouldn't be impossible since Hunters done that on the DS.

It should of been many and to you it's a style you may play often, I get what your saying Jas but it's a hard one as if they went for space marines people would of gone that's boring.

That can't really win with either of these styles, that they may f should have gone for a semi-realistic sort of style.

That's why I said drunka had a fair point & I don't have to play many chibi style games to know it is also overused as an art style.

it sure is in the RPG genre like how Space Marines are in FPS's, that it is refreshing to see a different style in the FPS but it's not one that really suits.

Yeah I think my point was that more realistic space marines would look even more generic, plus not great due to the hardware limitations.

But y'know everyone said they hated how Wind Waker looked when it was announced so... Wink

It's not even the same as that though because this wasn't revealed to be a "realistic" looking game at first, also I was fine with how Wind Waker looked.

Dated! 2nd September for Europe. I'm still up for this, mainly because I want to get good use out of the New 3DS's second stick. Wink

A NintendoLife hands on is released from the claws of the Chozo statue (sometimes I shouldn't type words). I'm pleased to read that the single player isn't going to be like Tri Force Heroes' was: as much as I love that game, you had to play it with other people. In any case, still keen on the game. Thumbs Up!

Got this on download right now but it'll be strange if this isn't in the final game as they said it was basically a tutorial for the main game, didn't they?

All the impressions of this game I have seen are actually very positive, once you get over the Metroid branding.

Need to get my online working on 3DS (somehow) so I can play Blast Ball!

There's mention of a full version of Blast Ball becoming available on the main menu so perhaps going to be released as a standalone title of not a part of Federation Force. Wouldn't mind giving it a proper go online though, it's got a rocket league vibe and I'm a little fond of that.

Just had a quick bash of Blast Ball and, predictably, I'm crap at it. Everything works smoothly enough, which is promising for the finished game... but I have no idea what I'm doing! Embarrassed

DoPo to drop off Link a link to NintendoLife's MP: FF review. Over a hundred comments in under two hours. I stopped reading them when I got to

Tone of review:

I have seen some other reviews which are on the lower side of review scores, and the game doesn't come out over here till September that there will be more reviews and we will have better idea if want to buy the game or not.

I've read the GiaG review & it sounds like a wait for it to drop to Ł20 type of game but that rarely happens to Nintendo games.

Nintendo bringing out the big guns to sell this to fans: not only is there a StreetPass puzzle, we also have a MyNintendo theme featuring Samus! Not that Samus will feature in the game. Hmmm.

Has anyone fired up Blast Ball yet? I think it has an online multiplayer, so we should probably give it a go.

Only had a brief play against the AI but it seems like good fun and could be fairly tense multiplayer at times.
