The VGM Lover
My younger brother and I had a conversation regarding both Star Fox Guard and its online gameplay. Why are robots constantly being sent to destroy a mining core? I suggested that maybe this became a sport after the events of the single player story levels. He didn't believe it at first, until I told him the actual value of sports in real life.
Basically, Grippy tells his story to the paparazzi, and plays them footage of the many battles the player had with the robot army. A group of corporate idiots see this footage, and blatantly ask, "Can we play that?" Then, they spend millions o' dollars to rebuild the robots, build replicas of the mining bases, and re-purpose the cores as goal posts, then demo these arenas across various cities and colonies, asking them, if they want to play.
Could this seemingly ridiculous idea become an actual sport in the world of Lylat?
