I hate reading these awesome comics and then knowing that they aren't really canon because they take place in the Prime universe. PRIME YOU ARE THE BEST UNIVERSE WHY DOES THE DIRECTOR HATE YOU.

SOOOOOB.

I dunno man. I was rereading that article and subsequent discussions.

A lot of it is poorly worded and ambiguous and I think a lot of fans (myself included) got caught up in the heat of the moment of being angry at Sakamoto and his stupid ego & contradictions.

There's no reason the Prime series can't fit in the timeline. They are their own separate story, with their own elements and style but it all fits on the timeline. There are inconsistencies but that's to be expected with any long-lived franchise. I mean, hell, there's inconsistencies between Fusion and Other M. (Nightmare? WHAT. ARE YOU DOING. ON THE BOTTLE SHIP.)

"Separate" doesn't necessarily mean remove from canon. I think he might just be implying that the events of Prime don't have a significant impact on the later stories, like Super and Fusion. He doesn't want his ideas and direction to be confused with Retro's ideas and direction but it all happens on the same continuity. I'm not reading anywhere, anyone saying "not canon", just "separate".

"Regarding “the Samuses”, it is a complicated question (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/interview/23982). Nearly everybody has asked about the Prime series, , but are completely different. It has nothing to do with it (Other M), but it could be a way to represent other facets of Samus's personality."

Saying "real" Samus is so ambiguous I don't think it means anything other than ~the side of Samus never shown before~. We all know that side was presented in the shittiest possible manner imaginable but rereading things and rethinking about things I am of the firm belief that the Prime games are still a part of the timeline, even if they're probably never going to be referenced to again.

I SHOULD JUST. SHUT UP AND STOP EDITING EVERYWHERE NERD RANTING ALL OVER YOUR JOURNAL AND JUST ENJOY IT FOR WHAT IT IS.

I am sorry also you are welcome I thought you'd like it. ;3;

I'm leaving home right now because I have a visit BUT let me say I plently agree with you: Prime is the best universe where samus's ever been. How can someone prefere Other M's Samus?

And I thank you for the link because I never read this comic and I'm definitely going to read is as soon as I return home.
