Fanboy Article: "Metroid on PS3??" (Not likely.)

Post by Guest on Wed Nov 04, 2009 3:53 pm

http://geekflavor.com/gf-gaming/metroid-on-ps3/#more-2776

I don't intend to offend anyone with this article.

The article is talking about how three Retro Studios developers left their former company, and created Armature Studios, and have sealed a deal with E.A. on making games. Apparently, some people thought that because of this movement, Metroid would be on the PS3.

"Wait...WHAT? How's that possible? I thought Metroid was a Nintendo exclusive franchise! They shouldn't be able to make Metroid on PS3, it's illegal copyright!" Don't worry folks, Metroid is still a true Nintendo franchise, and it is still wholly owned by Retro Studios, and Nintendo.

"But why would someone mention it? It has to be true right?" My friend, you are only partially right. While it is true that three developers have left Retro Studios to form Armature Studios, the rest of the article is desperate speculation, and pure fanboyism.

"How would you know if the author is a fanboy, or not?" I don't, but just from reading all the way through the article and looking around the website, I can definitely claim from these observations that the author is prettly much a fanboy. More specifically, a PS3 fanboy.

Let's break this down:

1. Just by going into the website, you can automatically tell by the way the website is named, "Geekflavor: Have you fed your inner geek today?" Along with a picture of a girl licking an ice cream cone. How can anyone take the article seriously with a website like THAT?

2. The author's name is "fatkobra." What automatically comes to mind is, well, a fat cobra, that's, well, fat, lazy, etc. So you can automatically assume that judging by the author's name, he is a lazy person who has no life.

3. His opening line is, "That's the rumor kitties." I don't know if he really means literally kittens, or just misspelled the word, "kiddies." So it's hard to know who his audience is.

4. He says the usual stuff about the Wii, how it's kiddy, and all that stuff, when he clearly didn't do his research on the console. And how the PS3 has blah-blah-blah.

5. He clearly doesn't know that Retro Studios is wholly owned by Nintendo as a 1st party developer, who wholly owns the Metroid franchise as a 1st party game, so moving Metroid over to Sony and PS3 would be illegal, unless Nintendo pulled a Rare, which everyone clearly knows that they didn't considering how M:OM, and MPT are still on the Wii.

6. He claims to be a "die-hard" Metroid fan who plays all Metroid games. He says "No one wants to play Metroid on the Wii." Hmmm, so why would he post a picture of Dark Samus from MP3:C, which is exclusively for the Wii, on his article if he claims no one wants to play Metroid on the Wii? Sounds like he's encouraging gamers to play Metroid on the Wii, instead of the opposite. Also, if he claims to be a "die-hard" Metroid fan, wouldn't he want to play ALL Metroid games, no matter the console?

7. Now here's the funny one, he ASSURES the audience, probably targeted at, you guessed it, PS3 fanboys, that there WILL be a Metroid coming on the PS3, even though he CLEARLY states in his first paragraph that Armature Studios WILL NOT be making ANY Metroid games period. He backfired on his OWN research that he posted. Epic Fail!

And if you're wondering what article he's mentioning here it is:

http://kotaku.com/5049329/metroid-prime-devs-eye-360-ps3-for-future-games

This is the full original article that's explaining everything in more detail. I can tell you right now that there is no mentioning of Metroid being on the PS3 anywhere. So basically, this fanboy's whole article backfires on him because he didn't read the original article all the way, or interpret it clearly enough to understand what the author's were saying. In other words, he fails at research, and everything else in life because of his PS3 fanboyism.

Now, I can also say that the fanboy's whole "Metroid on PS3??" article may be sarcasm, but given how it's still been up on the web for the last 10 months, there's no denying he's a true PS3 fanboy who is blinded by his own enthusiasm of the console of his choice.

I do have to give him props for at least do a LITTLE research, and having an attention-grabber title, but that's it. "fatkobra" you fail, and you're a PS3 fanboy.

I have to thank cardy225 for bringing this article to my attention because I CANNOT get it out of my head after reading it several times. This article makes me laugh everytime I read it. I know this article is from January 2009, btw, but this truly shows how fanboys don't intrepret their own research properly, and can bring about their own destruction, lol.

Oh, and look at his 5 comments. The popularity of this article is only 27%, lol.

Again, I don't mean to offend anyone.

Um, Retro only makes the 1st Person Metroid games. So unless PS3 is going to get Metroid Prime 4, there won't be any Metroid on PS3.

It would be halirious to see an Metroid game on the Playstation 3. Sure it might be awesome, but Sony will get there butt sued by Nintendo. I'll be laughing when that happens. As a matter of fact, I'm laughing right now.

@solborimm: Anyone who believes that a Nintendo franchise will be made available on a competitor franchise is lunatic about the gaming industry.
