Did LucasArts create that visor interface themselves?

Um... I guess. Most people don't really care, so I doubt if it has been released.

It appears that LucasArts may have STOLEN that visor from Metroid Prime!

Why not compare a screenshot of the RC visor to a screenshot of the MP visor.

You know thatīs a serious accusation, right?
I dont know when they started working on Metroid but I think both have nothing to do with eachother what so ever. Both are from the perspective of the inside of the helmet. And if you ask me, not much resemblance between both.

They look nothing alike.

RC's visor interface clearly shows the recognizable t-shape the helmets have ... metroid's may have some similarities. but seriously, how many HUDs are shown in games anymore? there are bound to be some details that resemble those in other games.

They look TOO close to be a coincidence.

no they don't. You see 2 helmets, and immediately go like; omg its a helmet, they ripped everything from metroid prime

* Quotes to make Murray the Chao read it again *

There are a lot of games which are based on the same genre and almost have the same interface. Do we call them ripping of each other? No, we dont. We play them and we praise them.

And if you are still convinced about the rip. Make sure you call it the right way. Do you know for sure LA ripped of MP and not the other way around? :rolleyes:

They look nothing alike. Period.

Look, the HUDs look alike because the helmet's visors look alike. And they did that because the clones all have helmets like that. And they did that because they were mandalorian clones, since Mandalorians also all wear helmets like that. And Mandalorians existed years before Metroid prime, so who's ripping who now?




Answer: nobody, it's jsut a stupid coincidence. D'OH!

MP sucks.
RC rules.

But that doesn't matter.

For me, either it's a good HUD or good gameplay. I'm interested in RC's visor, though. MP's helmet looks a bit... too visible.

I beg to difer, MP was a great game. :) Dunno if it'll be as good as RC, but it was an excellent game.
