They should have a crossover with the Metroid universe, the Aliens universe, and the Predator universe (yes, I know, the Predators and the Aliens are in the same universe, kinda). Think about it, the Alien xenomorphs have similar evolutions as the Metroids, and both have their ugly ass queens, making babies (it’d be interesting to have a xenomorph/Metroid hybrid). The Predators are like bounty hunters/space pirates, with physical abilities and weaponry rivaling Samus’., so it’d be interesting to see a Predator fighting Samus. The Metroid and Alien universes both have ancient, sentient beings that created advanced technology at the time. Samus could team up with the colonial marines against both threats. The last major Metroid game was, I think about 4 years ago, so it’s about time that Samus get back in the game (figuratively speaking). Also, if Nintendo were to do this, the concept ALONE would rake in big bucks.
Call me old-fashioned, but I preferred when playing video games was more about Mario jumping on mushroom people and less about threatening the mass murder of women.
When someone like Anita Sarkeesian is hit with DEATH threats (as well as anyone who was going to attend her session), there is something really wrong. And yes, anonymous threats have become real—my organization works with online victims every day and it’s scary how the anonymous cyberstalkers are the most vicious, then get to a point where they don’t care if the victim knows who they really are, then confront them in person or send them threats of physical harm. It has nothing to do with thin skin.
Maybe it’s not that we’re becoming more sensitive, politically correct, and/or “wimpy” as a culture because we’re challenging and demanding that people, organizations, and companies be more socially and ethically responsible, inclusive, and accountable.
Maybe we’re actually realizing what oblivious, apathetic assholes we’ve been all along and finally want to evolve as a society and species.
