All right, so 2 days ago Nintendo had its digital event at E3 and... let's just say it was pretty underwhelming... Some interesting title were discussed such as StarFox, Zelda Triforce Heroes, Mario&Luigi Paper Jam which mix the Universe of Paper Mario and Mario&Luigi and Yoshi's Woolly World (though it comes out in one week in Europe...). Of course there was Fire Emblem, Amiibos, etc.
However the two games being most discussed right now are the two Metroid spinoffs : Federation Force and Blast Ball. If you're unfamiliar with it, here's a link :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGu3Xe1uUUg
While you're at it, look at the Like/Dislike bar... Yeah, this brings us to the subject...
Nintendo fans have reacted pretty badly to these new addition to the Metroid Universe. It's been five years since the last Metroid was published (an "okay" one at that) and people were really expecting RetroStudio to reveal the next Metroid/Metroid Prime... But instead, Nintendo revealed these two games which didn't reach anyone's expectation. In fact there's even a petition right now for CANCELLING the game and it's been signed by many many upset Metroid fans...

And you what do you think? Metroid fan or not : Are you okay with the game? Did you sign the petition? etc.
As for me, I like Metroid but I started playing it way too late to call myself a fan. I really liked the precedent opuses and as everyone else, I was pretty bummed to see Metroid Federation Force and Blast Ball instead of a real Metroid title. However, I got over it pretty quickly.
As for the petition, I can understand why it was started, but I'm kinda not okay with it. There are people behind these titles and I feel like it's a little too early to judge.
