Scientists make headway in proving ESP can exist, but currently only activates if knowing the future would then result in getting porn.
Hyper-advanced aliens might not have to send their interstellar battle fleet to conquer Earth, it might only take three bored undergraduate aliens with borrowed lab equipment.

Hah! So ESP is essentially "based on my very extensive experience in topic A, I believe that this is going to happen next." Good work science.

And they've been building a hotel a third the size down on Grafton for how long?

Edit: Also, speaking yet more of the Chinese, awesomest form of mass transportation ever. Like , seriously, if it's possible to just generically "invest in China", I'm going to.

What went wrong with Metroid: Other M?

Apparently it hasn't sold half a mil yet, and likely won't ever reach a million.

Talk about the quality of the game and advertising all they want, but most people (like me) decided not to buy the moment the game was first shown.

Naturally the other half of that is piracy, which is nearly as rampant on Wii as it is on the DS.

People act like Samus is suddenly super weak because she has these human things called "emotions" now, and that she can't do anything... yet 85% of the game is blasting aliens, same as it was back when her personality wasn't much more developed then Master Chief.
At least, thats what I gather from all this, and why it probably hasn't done as well.

I would wonder if there were potentially some buyers avoiding the game by anticipating a form social stigma from buying what they may have percieved to be a "sexed up" version.

I think you're all reading way too deep into sales numbers, especially on the Wii. Other M isn't a traditional Metroid game, so you're losing both the recent Prime fans and the old school 2d people. Metroid by itself doesn't have anywhere near the name recognition that a Zelda or Mario does, so you aren't left with much.

I'm gonna see if I can buy some of these. (Nanoblocks! Like tiny legos.)
