Well, I think Nintendo should be more creative with titles. But it is being made by Team Ninja people, so it should be interesting to see the outcome.

Here's what I know about it so far:

Adam Malkovich is in it.
The game will use traditional side-scrolling as well as FPS elements.
The game will explore Samus's childhood.
The game takes place before the events of the original Metroid.


Here's what I think I know looking at the trailer:
Ridley and Mother Brain are in it.
The Power Suit and Charge Beam are usable.
The Zero Suit might be usable.
It appears Samus is using Hyper Boots at one point.


Concerns:
Metroid is not an action game, and this looks very action-heavy. The games used to be all about exploration and all that, but this looks like it'll be focused on some serious hand-to-hand stuff. I mean, she's pulling enemies down by the neck and blasting their heads in. Awesome, but maybe not Metroid awesome. I'm also afraid the game might be pretty linear. Hopefully speed-runs will still be desireable.

Either way, you bet I'm getting this as soon as it's out. I love the Metroid story and I want to see more of its origin.

Double-post but whatever, I forgot to address Elle!

Anyways, here's my thoughts about the title. First of all, the abbreviation is MOM, which could be a reference to Mother Brain. Second, the name could be a reference to a line at the end of Metroid, which went, "THE GALAXY MAY BE INVADED BY THE OTHER METROID. PRAY FOR A TRUE PEACE IN SPACE." This would mean the game takes place after Metroid, probably.

I still think this game takes place before Metroid though, just because of how young Samus looks. We shall see. It's certainly before Super Metroid, although there's a Space Pirate in the trailer that I've only seen in Fusion, so I don't know what that's all about.

Oh, and screenshots from E3 show that Crocomire is back! He was sort of a mini-boss you fought in Norfair during Super Metroid.

Totally and utterly unhappy. Looks like Samus will be losing a whole lotta depth in this game.

I'm afraid of a lot of things going wrong, here. Nintendo got very lucky with Retro Studios; I was nervous when they announced Metroid would be an FPS, but I ended up loving it.

What are your concerns, specifically?

I'm really concerned that the games will feature mostly around the 3rd person bosses. If not then it could really allow greater exploration, but from what I've seen, this looks like more of a spin off than a serious addition to the main series. It's a black sheep, if you will.

Yeah, I'm afraid of that as well. I'm also concerned that the series will lose some of its mystique, especially with that black guy in the trailer. Are we supposed to know him? Is he Armstrong Houston? Sylux? Or just a new character (and if so, why put him in the trailer)?

It sort of looks like the game will be one interactive cinematic, and I'm not sure I like how the game is so populated; the other Metroid games had you utterly alone, which was awesome. MP3 started to break away from that, but only in the beginning.

But I'll wait for more details before I get upset. Right now, I'm just pumped that Metroid is getting some attention.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned, but I guess it's gotta be good. After all, it's Metroid!

Agreed, Aota.
It will be interesting to see Samus's childhood. Perhaps it will show all the training she underwent with the Chozo.
