Metroid: Other M Art Gallery Translation Thread *Spoilers*

Postby CapCom » 05.21.11 10:06pm

For your perusal and discussion, the Metroid: Other M art gallery is being translated. It will probably go through in the order of the images, so you'll likely have to wait until the end to read about Ridley and Phantoon :)

In this gallery, we get to learn about the :adam: and the :zss: and the :rmg: .

Nice work, reading them now. I kinda wish the character ones were translated at least because they seem sorta important, at least the Adam and Samus ones.

Speaking of the Samus one, I want to call bullshit on the Samus emotions part. Clear contradiction and all that. And Samus' concept art page doesn't have a mole on it. What the heck?

EDIT:
Hmm...the Ian states that...
Adam > Mother
Brother > Father

What the heck does that mean?

I like how they try to give these guys personalities that in no way shows up in the game... Like KG caring about fashion (hardened marine, right?)... I guess that's why he was wearing those designer specs on the Bottle Ship!



Thanks for translating these, I really wanted to know what they said!
must be some sorta side effect of the hatchling or maybe she should stop going down on Miyamoto.

This was fascinating and gives a lot of insight into game development... specifically how much they'll end up taking out of a game that could possibly make the game better.

Ah, finally. Perhaps now we can put an end to this "James=Deleter?" debate.

There's still a debate about this? I always thought there were like, two believers that someone else was the Deleter and were vastly outnumbered. That's hardly a debate.

The Bottle Ship was the Deleter, James was merely its vessel.

Hmm...James' concept art kinda goes against the story of Other M, doesn't it?

Only Anthony calls her Princess, yet there it is, clear as day. Unless he's calling someone else, Princess.

He's in his 20s and thinks he's a stud... he's trying to get some.

Why else do ya think Melissa fractured his body? She didn't know how to react to someone hitting on her, so she hit him back. Physically. And hard. And very lethally.

Why haven't they gone all out with the character interaction I still don't understand.

As if I couldn't be any more dissapointed with this game. Now I find out that they had pretty well thought out personalities for most of the characters and didn't use them in the game. Fuck.
Four test subjects were horribly broken and twisted when they engaged our Morph Ball prototypes. Science Team wisely decided to move on afterward.

It kinda makes you wonder how much content was cut from the game.

I think a lot of this stuff with the characters they tried to communicate through the design and dialogue, but there's so little that there's not much to make the characters unique. K.G. for instance has one line, which amounts to little more than a grunt. His glasses make him look kind of hip, but that's all his character has going for it. They may have been able to communicate a little more by using more distinct character traits and bringing that out through dialogue, but especially things like posture (and yeah, there's some of that in the game too, but it's not overt). So it's not so much that they didn't think about the characters or cut anything from the game but rather they didn't implement a lot of this visually and verbally.
Adam > Mother
Brother > Father

What the heck does that mean?
It's referring to the physical traits, maybe also a little in terms of personality. Adam looks like his mother; Ian looks like his father. Both likely have character traits of their respective parent.
