This is the big announcement of plans for StarFox-Online coming this Summer. on CBS
We're bringing back some old projects and making some edits that'll hopefully make the site feel a little easier to use. This thread will also be designated an opinion thread and recommendation thread. I really want to hear any ideas on how we can make SFO better for everyone.
The Current plans are as followed:
SFO-Cast - SFO Cast was the podcast we had back when Skype was actually used. I've heard expressed interest for its return and will be set up for a test run coming this summer.
Gamenights - We have the Minecraft server and we also have a Team Fortress 2 server at request. One of the most lively activities we had on SFO was the game nights. We're going to be bringing these back into the fold and expect announcements for events on the Steam Group (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Starfox-Online) as well as the Discord (https://discord.gg/cDJqJNq). Turning the Chatbox into the Shoutbox again - For those of you who may remember, before we had the Chatroom in all it's glory, we had the shoutbox. It was combined to the main forum page and was a box at the top of the page. Unlike the chat, you didn't have to open a whole tab for it. This is being done for simplicity sake. Done. Restarting on the Content Tracker - Project Krazoa God is still in the works. Granted it's gone quiet but hopefully this summer, if everyone pitches in, we can bang this out. Walkthroughs - Along side with the PKG, there will be a new area for Walkthroughs of the Starfox Games. If you would be interested in writing or would like to make a video walkthorugh please contact myself or one of the site staff. Categorizing the Files - This isn't a huge one. It's just fixing and organizing the files of the site, self-explanatory. Honestly I just need a couple users who can lend a hand for a bit to get this out of the way. ================================================================================================ This cannot be done alone. We are the last standing shrine to Starfox Culture on the internet that actually has an active user base. We've stood together through the good times and the bad. It's time to rally under a single Arwing Fleet and make a stand to allow Starfox-Online be best it can be!

My ravings about Assault were so long and massive that I hit the post length limit! So in the name of keeping my rant together and in one place I'm going to be posting the rant here for quick and easy access.
DO NOT POST OR REPLY TO THIS THREAD. DIRECT ALL DISCUSSION FOR THIS RANT TO >THIS TOPIC. THIS THREAD IS FOR READING PURPOSES ONLY.
Alright, folks. This is it, my complete and utterly thorough review of Starfox Assault, one that has been stewing in my head for ages, never really having need or purpose to actually commit to writing it... until now. Things changed.
See, as some of you may have already known, I've been living in California for the past 3 and a half years, being native to NC. It was a spur of the moment deal, and as a result all of my Nintendo consoles and games have been left behind at home untouched and played by me for years. Well recently, I went searching through the garage of my new home (my girlfriend's family) and uncovered a Wii, and some Gamecube games. Among them was Starfox Assault... so I invested in a memory card to spare me having to play this whole thing in one endless session, and over the past week have completed the game for the first time in nearly half a decade.
I never really had a cohesive, collected view of Assault formulated in my mind, just impulsive feelings based off memories of when I used to play it in the mid-2000s. I remember most of the game vividly, but the firsthand knowledge of the game from freshly playing it was gone. No longer the case, now. With Assault's 10 year birthday this year, I figure it's high time I out this one down for good, and finally let my demons out. This is going to be a LONG post, mind you all, and I will be examining the game as it is presented level by level rather than any real categories. This is effectively a written and formulated expression of my raw feelings of the game.
So without further delay, let's just crack into this awful game, once and for all. This rant is HUMONGOUS, so it will be uploaded in chunks.
FORTUNA: A NEW ENEMY
KATINA: FRONTIER BASE BATTLE
SARGASSO: HOSTILITIES REVISITED
FICHINA: INTO THE STORM
ASTEROID BELT: THE APAROID MENACE
CORNERIA: WAR COMES HOME
ORBITAL GATE: INCOMING
APAROID HOMEWORLD: BREACHING THE DEFENSES
(Title may or may not be relevant, but it was the first thing that came to mind so whatever)
For those of you who follow my pony writing,(that looks a lot stranger typed out for some reason) I've been stewing on something for about a week now and after consulting with ShyYoungBrony (my personal second opinion and damn near everything these days) I've made a decision.
"In the Name of the Moon" is getting a rewrite.
"A Fresh Perspective" was a dead storyline and at this point it's beginning to drag down were I want this new plot to go, so I'm starting from the ground up.The story as it is now will be preserved in an unpublished chapter which you can find here if you need it for some bizarre reason, and as soon as I have a new first chapter ready all published chapters will be removed.
I've wrestled with this story for quite a while now and I'm really hoping this is the the key to getting where I want to go with it. I've got so much planned out in my head but there was too much baggage in between the here and there.
