  1. The biggest impact the Star Fox franchise's had on the gaming world, hands down, was introducing gamers to the realm of 3D-rendered polygons in the original Star Fox title back in 1993. This was arguably the start of the biggest transition to ever occur in the history of gaming, freeing us from the shackles of sidescroller hell to let us explore open worlds at our heart's content. At the core (literally) of the game was the chip that made it all possible-the Super FX chip, which managed to math it's way into overclocking the Super Nintendo's processors. Developed by a small third-party company, Argonaut Software, it allowed for the system to run at an estimated 40x faster than the original specifications would permit. This permitted the Super Nintendo to render basic 3D polygons, allow for parallax-scrolling sprites, and even apply basic texture maps to polygons. This little wonderchip found it's way into several other major titles-Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Doom, Star Fox 2 (oh what could've been!). However, by the time these games were making it to market, Sony had already ushered in an entirely new generation of gaming with the Playstation, which could provide graphics and sounds that were lightyears ahead of what even the best Super FX titles could produce. The sudden appearance of the Playstation is what led to the untimely cancellation of Star Fox 2, as Nintendo feared that it and other Super FX titles would be negatively compared against their Playstation equivalents, and that their efforts would be better spent on developing 3D games for the N64. This is a really fascinating video, and goes into great detail about the chip, Star Fox, and the rise and fall of Argonaut. Props to LoneWolf for digging this up!
  2. Ok, for my Gym Leader line-up in my story, I have hand picked Pokemon for them that represent their personalities, where they live, their abilities and all other things that represent them. For each Gym Leader, I have chosen the following these Pokemon for these reasons: For Fox, I have chosen Vulpix and Ninetales because they are both fox Pokemon. Does it get any more obvious than that? For Mario, I chose Bellsprout because of the plant life being highly important in the Mushroom Kingdom, Parasect because of the mushroom on its back represents the Mushroom Kingdom and Marowak because it somewhat reminds me of Dry Bones For Kirby, I picked Staryu because of its symbol being a star, Jigglypuff because they're both round puffballs and Ditto because it can change its form, somewhat like Kirby For Capt. Falcon, I chose Spearow and Fearow because they are both bird Pokemon, which are much like his alias being the name of an actual bird For Link, I selected Shellder because he started his adventure small and its shell somewhat represents his shield, Sandslash because of its arms that can slash things like his sword, Scyther because its arms are blades, which is perfect for him and Dodrio because of the 3 heads representing the 3 triangles of the Triforce, the symbol of Hyrule For Donkey Kong, I picked out 4 fighting-type Pokemon to represent DK's boastful strength. There's Primape because of its an ape Pokemon to represent DK being an ape, the others are Hitmonchan because of his abs are represented by the punching fiend's signature arm-based attacks and Machoke and Machamp because they are both big and burly like DK For Samus, I picked Voltorb because of her Morph Ball ability which releases explosives, Magmar was something my brother suggested and I stuck with it because it represents a handful of her attacks and Dragonair because it is as elusive as her For Ness, I picked Doduo because like Ness, it appears normal but has special abilities, Pikachu because the name PK reminds me a lot of Pikachu and Kadabra because it is psychic, much like him If you have better suggestions for these characters of what Pokemon you think they should have, please let me know. I might be able to become inspired by your ideas, or maybe offended. Either way, it is what it is.
  3. Yes you heard me right,while I was on the front page of Youtube; there a video made by Nintendo in which they're considering to build Nintendo theme'd rides at the Universal Studios parks. While I'm not sure about the other 48 states. I know for a fact there's one here in my state in Studio city and one in Orlando, Florida. This is going to be interesting. (inb4 everyone goes "MAKE A STARFOX RIDE NINTENDO!!")
  4. As most people reading this probably already know, Nintendo announced their new console recently: the Nintendo Switch. If you haven't already, I recommend that you go and watch the announcement trailer. Watched it yet? Great. I will say that when we were getting rumours about the NX and all the various aspects of it, I was a bit sceptical, but now that I've seen it in action, I'm hopeful. If I can play the Skyrim Special edition on the go as shown in the trailer, it's an instant sell for me. Even more so if it supports mods(side note, how likely do you think that will be?). One think I am wondering though is how using one half of the controller will work in multiplayer will work, or if it even will for some games. So what are your thoughts? This could make for a good discussion, I think.
  5. It may be way too early to mention this, but for my story, I created a few particular events in which the Starfox team are fighting in an armada against other enemies outside the Lylat System. They have been so preoccupied with these battles that they are unable to handle other events in the Ultimate Story that they are usually in charge of handling. This gives the chance for other characters to receive the spotlight, characters such as Link and Zelda. They get called in to deal with these issues. Back to the armada. During these battles, the Starfox team dawn new outfits and utilize new technology. A lot of the vehicles and gadgets they used are ideas borrowed from Starfox Zero. It is my way of putting that game into the story without transferring into it. My story has included a lot of what made Starfox the amazing game it is even though it continued on with Starfox Adventures. That game I always believed was perfect for my story but I would never stray from the elements that made the game special and this idea is no exception. I can't wait to talk more about it when the time comes.
  6. So this is old news but, because of nintendo partnering up with Universal for Amusement parks and that its summer and I like going to Cedar Point and Kings Island, what would you like to see there? What kind of rides would you like to see?
  7. nintendo

    NOA tweeted that NX will be launching in March, and that the new Zelda will be given the Twilight Princess treatment and release on both NX and Wii U. According to the investor report, Zelda will be the only new game playable at E3, pretty much confirming that the Wii U is dead.
  8. Ok, so this is my 13th entry to my blog and for this blog, I would like to celebrate the villains of the Ultimate Story because everyone knows that any awesome story wouldn't be complete without them. I shall now mention some of the bad guys from different universes that are guaranteed to be in the Ultimate Story. For the Powerpuff Girls, there will be Mojojojo, a significant villain for the story. For Pokemon, there will obviously be Team Rocket. Everybody loves them. And let's not forget some video game villains from the Nintendo franchise such as Starfox's own Andross and if Mario is part of the story, then I'm sure you'll anticipate Bowser to make an appearance sooner or later. There will also be some Ultimate Story original villains that will be part of this as well as many others from other universes that are part of the story. From dark organizations that hide in the shadows to psychotic maniacs that are out in the open, bad guys of all shapes and sizes will reek havoc in my story and cause a lot of problems for the heroes. Get ready as these 2 forces get into many battles with one another. It will be epic.
  9. Ready to chant for more Star Fox Zero content?
  10. New patreon for "A fox in space." https://www.patreon.com/AFoxInSpace?ty=c Not the first project to get nixed by Nintendo, Metroid Fan Film Shutdown by nintendo http://www.screwattack.com/news/ninte... I have witnessed a lot of stupid responses to things such as the power rangers bootleg fan film and recently the starfox animated parody that was recently snubbed by nintendo. Things are still on track and the names have since been changed which nintendo seems to be fine with, however it just feeds into my negative feelings towards japanese game companies and their practices. This video is a response to how it seems that they don't care about what fans want, will keep shoveling the same shit and beat that dead horse until it's just a pool of chunky red waste on the bat. It just confuses me to see a company like nintendo, koonami, and sega just have the bottom line in mind and not realize when it comes to entertainment products, it is a symbiotic relationship between customer and supplier. We give you money to provide us entertainment, a service. We may like your service so much that we will praise it with fan art, films, music, and even fan made games. Aside from making limited prints of non-parody art pieces there is really no room for shenanigans like shutting down tributes to our beloved entertainment unless of course, that musician starts selling cds of non-remixed music covers, fan games, or movies. Imagine if Sega or capcom sued over the fan films Blue Core made of megaman or sonic. Or nintendo over this starfox parody. It seems people are starting to be soured by these companies. Koonami is off making gambling machines of Silent Hill, Sega couldn't even successfully reinvent sonic, and Nintendo's wii-u will probably be dead in a year or less. Maybe they can start paying attention to their fan base a little more, unfortunately for them they seem to ignore the fact that the bulk of their market that keeps them a float is outside of their island. Interview about the project.
  11. Lately, I've tended to avoid making long walls of text in public places these days.. But hearing the news, I thought It was time to put my thoughts out there. On July 11th, 2015, Nintendo's CEO Satoru Iwata passed away due to complications from a bile duct infection. Iwata was an iconic figure in Nintendo's community, joining Nintendo's HAL labrotory in 1989 as a programmer, he helped produce many of the company's work, such as Balloon Fighter, and Earthbound, before becoming a Director in 2002, and eventually It's fourth President in 2003. As a Nintendo fan from childhood, I am thankful for all the years he's put into driving the company to where it currently stands--Still creating new, and fun experiences for gamers around the world. He had a personality that certainly left an impact on everyone he met, and as I write, and see the articles and tweets that pop up, he seemed to have the same on the world of gaming. He was very passionate about his work, and I can say with my heart that he will be deeply missed by everyone. Tonight, I will be lighting a candle for the him. He shaped a company that made a real impact on my life, and love for the industry, and the type of person I aspire to be like. I only hope one day I can be like you. Rest in peace, Satoru Iwata. Our thoughts and Prayers go Directly to you, and your family. We will never forget you.
  12. Hello all, Arwing_Pilot114 here. I just wanted to ask the collective of SF-O a question pertaining to a VHS tape I found at a retro game shop today. It's a tape of what appears to have the US Box Art of Starfox64 on it. I'm going to test it out once I get my hands on a VHS player, but my main question is this: What is this? A commercial recording? Recorded game footage? Is this a promo from Nintendo when the game first came out? I can't post the picture I took of it since I'm posting this on my phone, but I'm just currious if anyone knew something about this? I also got a VHS with the cover of Donkey Kong Country on it too. I guess I'll find out what these two VHS tapes are soon!
  13. Has something like this been done already (aside from the other Screenshot Megathread that is)? I've been thinking and I guess some place to discuss all things into Nintendo itself could be interesting rather than scattering posts around other topics. Opinions, speculation and those things. inb4 Sony Megathread, MS Megathread, Valve Megathread, EA Megathread Probably this can be the proper place for smaller finds like this: Not sure if it's news, but apparently Nintendo is approving content for other games (third parties no less) linked to Amiibo syncing, as seen there with the Amiibo collector's ADF-01F Falken and Eurofighter Typhoon from Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble+ (Assault Horizon Legacy). Not a huge fan of collection item stuff, but thought this would be something worth sharing here as well as leaving some space for other minor finds. Thoughts?
  14. Hello, SFO! This kinda serves as both a self introduction to the community and a way for me to share what I do with you all. I am Sky Soldier, and I've just begun my journy into the world of video game reviews on YouTube. The first video I completed not too long ago is about Star Fox and was a passion project. So what? You might ask... Well, this gives you a pretty good idea of who I am--I love games and I love Star Fox. I'd love for you all to join me on my journey by giving me your viewership as I continue to work on more videos and share them with you. You can check me out here: http://www.youtube.com/user/SkySoldierShow and subscribe to get notified when the next video is uploaded. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
  15. A user by the name iteachvader on YouTube made a Star Fox 64 Soundfont. Honestly, I've never seen a Star Fox 64 soundfont floating around anywhere. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbopGYxDZPA That's pretty awesome.
  16. I'm going to make a short Star Fox Trailer with 3-D models. I'm also writing an original score for it. Should I base it off of an ending in Command, or continue off Assault?
  17. I just finished watching, here's what I'm looking forward to:   Mario and Luigi Dream Team Bros. to be released July 12th. A NEW MARIO PARTY! With 7 boards and new mini-games, released this Winter. No mention of online multiplayer? Super Luigi U, which is DLC for Super Mario Bros. U. Coming this Summer. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, just a port from DKCU. Has local co-op and is released May 24th. Yoshi's Island 3D! I missed the release date due to a bathroom trip. XD Earthbound? Being released as a Virtual Console title, very interesting. Zelda, Oracle of Seasons and Ages, but I'm not too big a fan. Just glad that the calls of the fans are being answered here. NEW ZELDA TITLE, set in the same time and world as A Link To The Past, in which Link can become a chalk drawing and walk on walls and other flat surfaces. That sounds like it can be quite fun.   Despite the recent hype caused by an online game store in Spain, there is no mention of Majora's Mask 3D, much to my disappointment. That's my favourite Zelda.   There are other games to be released, like Fire Emblem (sales on the Champoin packs too), Pikmin 3, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Mario and DK, and a new Prof. Layton. There is also a new 3DS console to be released with the theme of the new Animal Crossing.   All in all, I'm satisfied with this news. Shame about MM, but there's always next time. :3
  18. The next update coming to the 3DS is going to allow downloadable content. Nintendo President of America, Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed the ability to sell downloaded add-ons, but it clarifies that its up to developers if they want to use it at all. He states that they are simply creating the framework for the option to do so. He also goes on to reassure that Nintendo would make sure their own games are a complete experience. Nintendo wants any DLC from themselves to be supplemental, rather than with held from the full game, which is great to hear from Nintendo, but I don't think 3DS owners are concerned about DLC. I'm pretty sure we just want any game to come out for it. Source: http://www.destructoid.com/nintendo-only-wants-dlc-for-complete-game-experiences-216050.phtml
  19. Last week there were rumors of the 3DS getting a SECOND CIRCLE PAD! Turns out they are all true! Scans of the newest Famitsu Magazine show an additional analog pad that attaches to the 3DS. The add-on covers the shoulder buttons, so it has its own L and R buttons to make up for it. The first game to take advantage of the extra stick is Monster Hunter-Tri G, an all new update of Monster Hunter-Tri for the 3DS. The game will include all the features from the Wii version, along with new monsters and can be played without the extra pad. Expect to hear more about this at Nintendo's 3DS event next week. I am curious as to how its gonna change the gameplay to some games. Its like the second analog stick the PSP never got.........though I'm not sure if thats considered a good thing or bad thing.

  20. September is gonna be a pretty awesome month for my 3DS. While Star Fox 64 3D is just around the corner (two more days!), I'm also qualified in Nintendo's 3DS Ambassador program: that means I started out the month with 10 free NES games! I just thought I'd share my opinions on each of these games, as they all vary from "awesome" to "god-awful" (in my humble opinion). Also, besides Super Mario Bros. and Balloon Fight, I've had no experience with these games prior. In general, I just really like how the Virtual Console let's you leave the game at any time and come back to where you left off - these were my first VC games, and I wasn't sure this feature would be carried on by the 3DS. This is especially useful in Metroid and Super Mario Bros. Metroid: By far my favorite game! Loving every second of it. I'll admit the difficulty is brutally harsh (like those bugs that come out of pipes and ZOOM right towards you?), but I can overlook this. Graphics are great (for an NES game, that is), sound is awesome, BGM is cool to hear in 8-bit (since most Metroid-related games -- i.e. Super Smash Bros. -- have made remixes of these, its fun to hear the original) and the gameplay is addicting. The only thing I could knock this game on is controls, but that's probably a 'learning curb' more than anything else - especially getting used to the jumping mechanics. Super Mario Bros.: Not much to say here, as I already knew what to expect. Thanks to the 3DS' idle mode though, I have a new goal: to beat the game w/o those cheap pipes in World 1-2 and 4-2. Donkey Kong Jr.: At first, I thought it was just going to be the educational math game on Animal Crossing (fun, nonetheless), but I was pleasantly surprised. Basically, the game's a giant role-reversal: 'Mario' kidnaps D.K. and you gotta save him. While it takes some time to get used to D.K. Jr. obviously massive weight (he can't even jump from vines and cover more than 2 inches before dying from a 2 foot drop), you get used to it and learn patterns for every stage. Fun, but couldn't play it religously. Zelda (1 and 2): I can't say a lot about these two yet, as I've chosen to plow through Metroid before devoting to another large-scale game (except Star Fox 64 3D). Both look fun, and I look forward to playing them in the future. Yoshi: Honestly, I didn't see this one coming. I didn't even know Yoshi existed back in the NES days, let alone have something as bewildering as a puzzle game! Works sorta like Tetris in the fact you have several modes and music options. Its pretty fun, but unless I discover there's additional content by getting higher scores, its just a novelty for when I'm bored. Balloon Fight: Had so much fun playing this with my sister on Animal Crossing. So much fun, its hard to play it on single player, or the even-more desolate Endurance map. W/o the multiplayer, I just seems empty for me. By no means does this merit it 'unplayable', it just doesn't feel right w/o the awesome, competitive 2 player for me. Wrecking Crew: Yoshi making egg-sandwiches w/ bloopers, goombas and piranha plants - okay, I can dig that. Mario rushing around construction sites pummeling ladders and exploding bombs all while being chased by eggplants and yarn-people? Ehhh... Weird, but fun, especially with the 100 levels to choose from (the last being the unholy grail of asshole-ish programming and cheap level design) Some Golf Game I've Forgotten the Name of Already: Its golf... It looks pretty in-depth for a NES golf sim: you can make money in tournaments to buy equipment, practice, etc. I tried it once, but I've never been fond of 'realistic' sports games. This particular title: let's just say I won't be able to rate this game in the eShop... Ice Climbers: I was actually pretty excited for this one: ever since SSBM, I've wanted to see the game those pesky grab-spammers originated from. Brawl's 1 minute and 30 second demo wasn't enough for me (if only I'd learned my lesson then). Now, I have the entire game at my disposal, and... God, is it awful. Jumping, your essential means of transportation is broken beyond comprehension: you just shoot up like a rocket ship, make an archmcovering another 2 pixels and, half the time, land where you jumped in the first place. And don't even try platforming on bonus stages: its hopeless. Jumping onto stationary platforms is tough-enough, but MOVING ones? Fat chance! I've yet to complete LEVEL 1'S bonus stage! Also, hit detection is off: either I miss the monsters thanks to the goofy and misleading attack-animation, or he somehow touches me when I'm clearly out of range. Bottom line: everything about this game is frustrating: controls, enemies, spawn-times, game-play, and the list could go on, and on. Really disappointing. And, just think: surely other games deserve the slot this piece is taking up. Wario's Woods, maybe some classic Capcom games (if licensing isn't an issue, but I'm guessing there is because of the lack-of Castlevania and Mega-Man), ANYTHING but Ice Climbers! So, those are my personal opinions. What about you guys: favorite game, least-favorite game, why -- that sorta stuff. (I'm not even exactly sure how many 3DS Ambassadors are on this site, so all this rambling could have been in vein...)
