Starfox (finally) getting some praise

If you picked up the new Nintendo Power, not only does the new polls have a Starfox poll, Fox McCloud also had a featured article. In last month's, the Power Quiz was Starfox themed(and apperently Wolf's fighter is the Red Fang. But how?)

The "Red Fang"?

...really, guys? Seriously?

My guess is that it was mentioned on the NES SF game or SF 2, idk.  That confused me too.

*waits for a Robert Monro lesson*

It's nice that Star Fox is getting some attention for once, even if it is just an article. 

Nowadays, it seems like an obscure franchise that hardly ever gets brought up, unfortunately.

More like shouldn't have played any Starfox beyond 64, amirite?

B-but Krystal's in SFAdv D:

Yeah he's not a Krystal fan, he hates star fox past 64. Just like all the other people out there that I've met.

Krystal isn't why SFAdv was bad.

It was because it was a bad Zelda clone.

Even the "Zelda clone" thing wasn't what was bad about it. It could have been a good game even if it did change format. True, it wouldn't have been a good flight simulator, but just because a game franchise changes format doesn't make it bad. Paper Mario is an example of that. What was bad about Adventures was that it was rushed and very little effort was put into anything but the graphics.

Paper Mario TTYD is my favorite Mario game :o

Hence the word "bad" in my description.  :P

I loved the hell out of the Paper Mario games.

Maybe the SF fanbase is "louder" that it thinks? Maybe someone is paying attention for a change?

I doubt it, the Nintendo officials probably don't care about the fans of star fox. I know they are making a new game, but it's a remake and instead of clearing the story they already have their going back.

The Starfox games are pretty similar to the Sonic games in this way.  For both, the older games were when the franchises were hot, but then as the series went on, they started developing new and sometimes "out there" ideas.  That disapoints many fans, but that doesn't exactly stop them.  A lot of people play the games just because they have things that relate to past games, or to put it more specifically, many starfox fans play starfox games just because it has Starfox in it.  Same goes for Sonic.  I guess I'd have to put myself in that group of people. :/

Damn straight.  The Wii game I didn't care for as much, but the other two were absolutlley amazing.  The stories were very well written, and the gameplay never get's old.

Too bad for her then being introduced in a subpar sequel.

Yeah he's not a Krystal fan, he hates star fox past 64. Just like all the other people out there that I've met.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Krystal hater at any rate.

Actually, a remake of Starfox 64 shows that they -are- listening to the fans. This could be the start of a series reboot.
