    Super Smash Gym Leaders

    Ok, so here's the deal. When I was 10, my brother received Super Smash Bros. for the N64. It was a lot of fun; we both enjoyed it. At that time, I came up with this crazy idea to make them into Gym Leaders to replace the other Gym Leaders, who were out of commission for events that happened in the anime. Even though it was the start of the story, these events still occurred before then for reasons that were eventually formed later on. The Gym Leaders consist of 8 of the 12 original Super Smash fighters, including the unlockable characters. Obviously, Pikachu and Jigglypuff are not Gym Leaders but there is 1 Pikachu owned by 1 Gym Leader and 1 Jigglypuff owned by another. The 8 Gym Leaders and the major settlements in the Kanto region they're representing are of the following: Fox-Pewter City Mario-Cerulean City Kirby-Vermillion City Capt. Falcon-Saffron City Link-Celadon City Donkey Kong-Fuchsia City Samus-Cinnabar Island Ness-Viridian City The badges of each Gym Leader consists of their symbols in the Super Smash games. Fox-the Starfox symbol aka the Starfox Badge Mario-the Mushroom icon aka the Mushroom Badge Kirby-his star icon aka the Star Badge Capt. Falcon-his falcon icon aka the Falcon Badge Link-the Triforce symbol aka the Triforce Badge Donkey Kong-his initials aka the DK Badge Samus-her Screw Attack icon aka the Bounty Badge Ness-the Earthbound symbol aka the Earthbound Badge This was always one of my favorite pastimes when writing this story and as absurd as this idea may seem, it's been a lot of fun coming up with this and it has become an important event for my story in more ways than 1.

    The 7 N64 Games of the Ultimate Story

    Super Smash Bros.: This introduced a lot of the major Nintendo characters to what would eventually be the Ultimate Story Paper Mario: This introduced a number of other important characters as well as officially decided on the major design and appearance of the Mushroom Kingdom Rayman 2 The Great Escape: This brought along a handful of a few more important characters and introduces an important feature to the Ultimate Story Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards: This brought about another important character that gradually became a part of the story Donky Kong 64: This brought forth the start of an important plot that eventually became a lot more essential than it seemed at the time Starfox 64: This eventually brought forth an important event in the story that involved the many occurences in the game Banjo-Tooie: This introduced a few important characters to the story as well as another major setting for the story
  3. Ever since I've seen this StarFox: Event Horizon on the web, it's got me to thinking, thinking of what it would be like, if Starfox had its own MMO game with a lot of features: -Create your own custom character and starfighter. -Have epic PVP dogfights with other players -play Storyline mission with all the StarFox Characters (including Krystal, Miyu, Fay, and Fara, cause lets face it, even they need a chance to be in the spotlight too.) -have special event to escort convoys, take down Venomian Remnants, and even have showdowns against Star Wolf. and much more, but let me remind you, this is just concept, who knows if this ever becomes a reality.

    My Star Fox Zero Thoughts

    Now, as far as the gameplay looks, I like how fluent it looks, they gave a friendly nod to the cancelled StarFox 2 *again, the best StarFox game that nEVER came out* which filled my heart with sunshine and rainbows, but it was all blown away by the fact the slow-flying dog fighting, and ever slow rail shooting STILL looks like SF643D, I wanted something that would make the dog fighting in Assault look like Bosconian, something similar to StarWars BattleFront II, with the same fluid control Assault had, but have the Arwings go faster, go straight up and down at 90 degree angles like in, again BattleFront II, yet still keep the same barrel roll capability, and somersault, they could still have the roll with the right control stick. The Dog fighting seems to handle in the same fashion as Assault/643D multiplayer which is...AT LEAST better than SF2 and SF64 where I'm basically flying a hovercraft or snow speeder in outer space, where you aren't even actually flying. as for the walking capability, it looks just as good as StarFox 2, and some of the layouts look similar to the LandMaster layouts in Assault. the LandMaster transformer looks pretty cool too...unfortunately it isn't the arena-style LandMaster in Assault that was actually good, being able to rover around freely and fluently, instead its the one with the gas peddal-duck-taped-to-the-floor crap again from 64 and the all-range multiplayer. it got annoying. "StarFox Zero is not a part 4 *Sequel to Assault*, not a part 5 *sequel to Command*, not a reboot, but a reimagining." Ugghh, could be worse. AND JUST LIKE HOW I HAD CALLED IT BEFORE:....Krystal's gone, she's just another Miyu/Fey/Fara now. her fate in being vanished is the same fate as Boba Fett when the evil Disney erased the EU from the StarWars canon. why do powerful entertainment companies who try to claim innocents persistently get rid of fan-favorite characters? VERY dissappointed by that. didn't Nintendo claim to be trying to have more playable females? I wanted to see something not seen before, a StarFox game that blows everything else away, instead it feels too much like 643D, even the E3 VA was copied from 643D which is a stain in my memory. I hated 643D only slightly less than god awful Command. they got Majora's Mask AND Ocarina of Time 3D right, what the hell!? Assault and 64 stand on equal grounds to me, and the ambitious SF2 on a higher ground, I want a game that makes all that look like Galaga, a space shooter/space battle sim that can compete, and the fact that there's no online multiplayer isn't helping. ....is there even a storyline? that won't fly anymore, Nintendo. what I think they should have done: Have a few rail-shooting sequences that familiarize with SNES, and are FAST, not walking speed like Assault and 64. dog fighting with a wide range of flight ability like in Assault, but with better Ai, all teammates are engaged in combat, instead of all ganging up on Fox. have an online multiplayer, coop, and maybe a StarWolf mode. have 5v5 battle for main game dogfight with Fox, Falco, Krystal, Slippy and Peppy vs. Wolf, Leon, Panther, Andrew and Pigma. would have been excellent. While they are nodding towards SF2, they should have had Miyu and Fey at least as side characters on a few missions. THE LEAST they could do was that, instead nope. In addition, include the Assault LandMaster that transforms into the heavy aircraft, I still also like the gyrocopter as well so that's a keeper. there should actually be a story as well, not "Ok guys, next mission let's go. whee!!" crap. I GUESS since its a reimagining it might not effect current canon any, or they might have the other characters appear in the future, or since the game is still incomplete they might add them in later, but seeing the official art I don't think so.
  5. Lylat Investigations. This is a new twist I am trying to take on Star Fox Fan fictions. Basically what will happen is that I will generate the story based on submissions I receive to my inbox or here for crimes and story progression. It’s almost an LA Noir type of deal, but rather than generate scenarios that will end up just benefitting myself and my characters, I want YOU the reader, to be thrown for loops and have you help me generate the story. (Those that do not violate forum rules) This will be set in modern Corneria in conjunction with the Star Fox timeline. Let’s say post 64 events. Peace has mostly returned to Corneria, but there is still crime rampant in the system. Follow Mark and the rest of his investigation crew as they solve crimes across Lylat. YOU can build this story, we just need to keep it within forum rules. Please don't suggest TERRIBLE Crimes. If no good suggestions are made within a good time-frame or those that I feel are ready at this time, I will withhold them and continue as is. PLEASE NOTE: If your idea is not picked, please do not take it personal. I may also combine multiple suggestions as they flow and seem fit for the story. You will see my notions for ideas to be selected with [SUGGEST HERE]
  6. Well, the StarFox Zero announcement came out yesterday and I started my blog this morning! Time to abuse the system. So anyway, I don't know much about it because I don't watch E3 (for many, many reasons.) But from what I gathered on it from the people here, this may be my excuse to buy a Wii U. I love how Fox looks and that all-range mode is back. So, that kills my hopes for making a StarFox fan game for the next few years. But I actually don't care, I'm just glad one of my favorite game series' is getting another installment. Now if only Sly Cooper 5 would happen...
  7. So, some dedicated people over at KrystalArchive.com managed to rip a GIGANTIC batch of voice and sound clips from Star Fox Assault, all of which can be found here. For those that don't care for the game, this might not mean much...but for fans of Assault like me, this is an audio gold-mine. All the Japanese voices are included, too, but they haven't been sorted yet.

    Starfox Assault MEGA RANT (READ ONLY)

    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. OPENING VIDEO/TITLE/OPTIONS/ETC FORTUNA: A NEW ENEMY KATINA: FRONTIER BASE BATTLE SARGASSO: HOSTILITIES REVISITED FICHINA: INTO THE STORM ASTEROID BELT: THE APAROID MENACE SAURIA: REUNION CORNERIA: WAR COMES HOME ORBITAL GATE: INCOMING APAROID HOMEWORLD: BREACHING THE DEFENSES
  9. Do you want Andross to return? I'm okay with him returning, he's Star Fox's Bowser so why not.
  10. It all started yesterday, I decided to crack open the retail version of the Starfox Adventures GCM that I have, and it contained some interesting files that may lead back to DP's development. I can say for sure that what I found here took me by surprise: As you can see underlined in red, swapholbot, swaphol, and warlock if you don't know already were supposedly removed levels in the original game. To me, it appears that the level data for these areas still remains in the retail's file system. That would be what I hope the case is... The other possibility is that Rareware was just too lazy to delete the files so they overwrote them and replaced the data for the new maps. However, I believe these are still intact because the format of the data is in the same order as all other map files, meaning it contains all of the files for the level to load properly. Seeing that I have no idea on how to replace these files with the retail's to perhaps access them, that's why I have come to this forum for some feedback and suggestions. I have been attempting to get into some deeper parts of this game for a few years now, and this is the closest I've gotten so far. - Mike

  12. Share your story: What were your reactions when seeing Krystal for the first time in a Starfox game? Please do not get the wrong Idea. No personal stuff involved in this topic. The first time I met Krystal was when I was thirteen years old. I was a big fan of Starfox and I still am. But in that time I was expecting to see Fox McCloud in the first part of the game Starfox Adventures. So I was a little dissappointed. But after I played through the game, I became more fond of Krystal and began liking her character, her qualities of kindess was beautiful and so she is one of my most favourite Characters In the Starfox Series. That's enough about me. Tell me how it felt when you first met Krystal.

    A Human within the Lylat System

    in my first topic thread which is called "Strategic thinking within the starfox games." The Judgemeanie commented about starfox games having RPG elements. So I was inspired to write this topic to see what you guys might think about it. What if you guys had the opportunity to make your own character within the starfox games. But not just any character. A Human character. And as your play you have to attend the Cornerian military academy. As you upgrade and become and expert in flying, your missions involve flight and ground missions as Fox McCloud's partner. After all we have been playing as fox for a long time so I thought it would be cool to just fight along side him for a change. What do you guys think
  14. This is a personal opinoin on what i'm hoping for within the Starfox games to come. Please feel free to say what's on your mind to this subject. What if a new Starfox game was released with a new added type of gameplay where you make the strategies for the situations that Fox gets into, like for example. You get to decide who flys the Arwing or who rides the land master, or you can have the whole Starfox team be placed on foot, plus you can place them at strategice points. I mean in Starfox Assault, you would hear Fox speak his strategy of how to handle the situation and you would play through it. But now after you have set up your team. You get to see your strategy in action as you progress through the level. To illustrate, just say you are faced with a gigantic robot, and you placed Krystal who shoots a rocket launcher to cover you from above. As soon as the robot attacks you she fires her missile making the robot fall though the floor which caves in from the blast. Something like that kind of strategy I am hoping for So i thought that i should bring this topic into the open to see how you guys think about it.

  16. Well, per request of some people and for those who don't want to/can't go at dA, here's my fanfic. So far I got a little content to show, not much more than two chapters. It's a crossover with the lore of the game Endless Space (which I mentioned before) set at a post-Assault, non-Command timeline. Well, better than nothing although I think I suck at titles. And possibly more than just that. So prepare for the worst and enjoy: ---- StarFox: Power of the Endless ---------------------------------- Lore: There is one thing no power can control. No matter how an empire grows strong, no matter how advanced they are, it is impossible for any to control and shape this to their will. It is yet to be known one that can control not only what is –and will- happen. Outsmart the paths of time. Outsmart the certain death. Shape the very Universe around them. Only one race was nearly able to do this... And even they didn’t succeed… They were called The Endless. Immeasurable knowledge, untold wonders of technology, and greater wealth than anyone would ever imagine. Of all their mysteries, one though is perhaps the most perplexing; their whole civilization is missing, leaving behind only their constructs and works. As a matter of fact, their legacy is not a humble one. Whole planets, made habitable; countless ‘ruins’ that still stand solid despite any harsh condition they would withstand… And The Dust. The Endless’ most notable creation, this nanotech is perhaps the most used—and least understood – of all their creations. It would seem today it that most consider it as currency, but there those who see its true potential; from information, to warfare, to construction, and anything imaginable… And those are willing to take on the risks for greater reward than simple wealth. The Dust is not simply a nanotechnological construct. Much beyond that, it acts autonomously, and continuously self-replicates exploiting anything seen as useful. Upon reaching a certain quantity, its entangled networking becomes ever more complex, leading it to indeed get ‘smarter’. To the point sometimes even achieving self-awareness. As a matter of fact, its nanotech scale and adaptable programming allows The Dust to incorporate itself to perhaps all it can reach; systems, craft hulls, buildings… and even lifeforms. The risk of becoming a “Dust-infected†individual is feared by most, as a common side effect for the faint of heart is losing their mind. Yet, those who are convict on their goals seem to achieve untold feats upon becoming, as they call “Dust-enhanced†individuals, either on battle, or as scholars. At this point, we may only know a fraction of The Endless once did, but having finally unshackled ourselves from the confines of limited space, the doors to infinite possibilities now open. What will happen now...? Only time will tell… ------------------------------ I’ll say it; No matter how hard you try, it’s not easy to get things work be the way you hope or expect. Plan as you will; you’ll have to deal with the unexpected. And it’s dealing with ever more surprising occasions that I find myself here. I am Fox McCloud, leader of the mercenary team called StarFox. We're known in Lylat for having defied enemy forces and plunging straight into the enemy's leading corps. It all started when my father, James McCloud, founded the team with his close friend Peppy Hare, and assisted by another mercenary called Pigma Dengar. The same way we do today, the team was famous for the prowess of destroying entire fleets even if outnumbered or outgunned. It was during a conflict between Lylat's Cornerian Defense Force and the empire of a scientist that went berserk after banishment -named Andross- that they were most noticed. This success didn’t last long, though… As it turned out, Pigma was acting under the enemy’s orders, for the larger paycheck… *Sigh*...He shot my father down before he could even react. From that day on, ‘harsh’ was to understate it. Pigma had fled unscathed into the underworld of Lylat, and despite the best efforts, justice couldn’t be done at the time… Even though there was no wreckage found of James' fighter or any corpse or escape pod, there are no proofs that he survived the incident... *Deeper sigh* It’s just some bad memories that you don’t really want to have… ---- Not long after this though, the team was reborn with a new crew. A four-ace team with perhaps the best flight academy graduates… …Erm… okay, I think that’s overstating a bit… You can say it was a case of “almost, but not quiteâ€. Motor mouth, with a knack for comic dialogue, and almost reckless honestly, the team’s ace Falco Lombardi is a great pilot and excels at flying the Arwing, and obviously, performs greatly in battles. He is skilled, but sometimes he does tempt fate more than a bit… Peppy has a lot of experience from what he has seen and done, and is still good during space combat. Recently, though, he shared the position of commanding the mission from the Great Fox with ROB, since someone has come into the team that ended taking his place. Though he's very young for a starfighter engineer, Slippy Toad deals swiftly with nearly any tech he can put his hands on. Tweaking, reprogramming, fixing, upgrading, calibrating… you call it, he can get it done. On the other hand, he’s not the best pilot around… And worth the mention, and there's also ROB. He's a command and control drone kept ever since the original team. Still works nicely. Of course I'm not decommissioning him so soon. That drone already has story with me. ---- After the new team was complete, we've been requested of services by the CDF, once again against Andross. After driving his forces back into his main assets, we had troubles of many kinds, and one of them, was Star Wolf. Another mercenary team, they were really there only for the money. While their team members were Wolf O' Donell, Leon Powalski, Andrew Oikonny, and Pigma Dengar, their luck wasn't the same as ours. They were serving as a last line of defense for Andross' plans, and despite their advanced fighters at the time, their motivation was faint, and we managed to defeat them. The rest, as some say, is history. ---- Time passed, some things changed, and we all had our differences. It got to the point Falco offed himself into his own adventure, but perhaps it’s still something that can make quite the conversation topic… He came back though, but the circumstances were… at least, strange. I was dispatched at a recon mission at the time, on Planet Sauria, for good reasons nicknamed “Dinosaur Planetâ€. The number of reptilian species in that planet still can surprise unknowing visitors. As it turns out, it was more complicated than first thought. An uprising of a dominant reptilian warrior race was happening, and to make it worse, the incredulous mission control disregarded my reinforcement requests. I was roughly on my own, with the occasional aid of a few natives… It was on that planet though, that our last team member was found. I still ask… what are the odds? Heh… Her search was driven only by one motivation; discover what caused the ultimate destruction of her homeworld, and the loss of its civilization. Her name is Krystal. By means untold until further ahead, on her quest she managed to reach Sauria, though seeing the imminent conflict, Krystal decided on an act of selflessness to help restore peace. It wasn’t so successful, though. She became trapped inside a crystalline construct by forces we still don’t really understand... I first found Krystal in that state, only partially aware of what was next to her. I couldn’t just walk away and leave her. Within what I could do, I was able to free her from the entity. As a token of gratitude, she decided to join us until she could settle herself, and return to her search. As it turns out though, she stayed for quite a while longer than that… ----- Krystal’s decision to stay with us lasted longer than she probably thought it would. For quite some time, the best efforts of our help to her didn’t give many results besides what she already knew; her world was dead, and there were no signs of what possibly caused it… Even in this unfortunate time of her life, though, she didn’t recluse herself. Rather, she became a good friend of us all, and a valuable asset to the team as well… And I’ll admit… I feel close to her... As we knew each other better, Krystal had shown herself as gentle, yet reliable, and perhaps quite determined. Her kindness makes her fit the role of team and crew counseling perfectly, and as a matter of fact, her species carried the gift of telepathy, showing her value of understanding nature Perhaps her good looks are a super extra. Heh… And with the time that passed, I couldn't help but to become even more interested in her than I first thought I would... ---- Of course, as you probably figured out, the destruction of Andross has caused the rest of his followers and supporters to fall in disorder. But that didn’t foil their last card; to create a rebellion. They were more a nuisance than a threat, actually, and were easily neutralized and forced back into their minor outposts, with their leader, Andrew Oikonny, running across Lylat into his last-resort territories. We thought that it was a matter of time upon peace blanketed the system. But things changed suddenly, as even though Oikonny was defeated, we were put against a new foe. I'll put it simply: they are deadly, and they are ugly. The Aparoids. Insectoid cyborg race which assimilates any and all technology and life forms into their hive. The Corneria Defense Force had faced one of those in the past, and there were few survivors of the encounter with the single Aparoid. Their invading forces attacked both minor and major locations in Lylat, having appeared first in Fortuna, and then invading Katina. They even invaded the very same tribal planet that I've visited in the past, Sauria, as well as striking the very capital of Corneria. Though our team defeated them flawlessly, the damage done cost many lives, and Corneria learned a harsh lesson of how to plan their strategies having faced this. There was someone though, who was willing to do anything to get what he wanted. Pigma Dengar was absorbed by their forces, and turned into one of the Aparoids himself. All he was made of is greed for money and for power. He paid a high toll when he captured an Aparoid core. Even though it granted him control over many devices, in the end he lost his very mind and became an empty shell. A husk. Surprisingly, a former nemesis proved themselves allies, instead of enemies. The Star Wolf team had participated in the conflict, but this time, not against us. Perhaps someone convinced them to help, perhaps the impending doom hit their sense of honor. Regardless, even in the last stand, they showed great prowess in both piloting and fighting. Our victories cost the Great Fox though. The ship had been attacked by Aparoids, and partially assimilated just before Peppy made a final strike with the Great Fox’s weapons. And the ship itself. He managed to survive, but what was left of the ship was ultimately destroyed as the whole Aparoid homeworld was destroyed with it. Perhaps we would have lost our ship, but not our will. Stronger and more powerful than ever, now we stand as one, seen not as simply mercenaries anymore, but perhaps… …as protectors of peace. ---- Chapter I: Contacts News had reached me about The Great Fox Mk. II. At the Corneria Orbital Shipyards, its assembly process had finally reached the very end, and little was left to introduce it into the fleet. Perhaps a warship was not of urgent need, but a command craft was needed for our team, now seen as the highest elite. High up in one of the many skyscrapers of Corneria City, I silently observed the vista. Among the colossal structures I could see, everything was working as a single organized entity. Far in the horizon, the sight of Lylat's twin suns setting. It seems that the efforts for peace had paid off. The whole system prospered after the damages were repaired, but Corneria was especially benefited. Perhaps nothing in Lylat comes close to Corneria's cities when it comes to the density. There are buildings of any and all sizes imaginable, and as the night comes, the city pulses with life. It is possible to see the cities dotted around the planet, even from far off. No wonder why Krystal seemed delighted on the first time she saw the planet personally. After this moment of thought, I was interrupted by the sound of a door opening. As I turn in its direction, I see the familiar figure of a blue vixen. Krystal... ---- As Fox turns to Krystal, it’s impossible not to see he is quite dazzled by seeing Krystal. The vixen was wearing a long, white dress, along her necklace. Not much else was to notice, if not her natural appearance. "It still amazes me..." Krystal says, while joining in the sightseeing. "It's just... Beautiful." “Would that be the city?†Fox asks. “Because it sure has got competition…†he continues, grabbing onto Krystal’s hands. “…Yep, that sunset pretty much makes me undecided about it.†Fox adds with a smirk on his face. “Ooh Fox… You never let go of those jokes, do you?†Krystal responds, with a giggle. “Still… It’s really impressive…†Krystal may have lived in Corneria for a while already, but that is no reason for her to find beauty in what others may find perhaps trivial. Corneria was much different than what she was used to in Cerinia, her home planet; Lush rainforests which spanned the whole planet, with exception of the poles and a few masses of water. It was a true jungle paradise. The structures there were only the Cerinian towns, and Krazoa temple ruins scattered around the planet. Differently than Lylat, the system orbited a single star. "You know, that's the thing I love in these big cities; I can literally feel the life within them. Many different people. It feels so close to them, even if they don’t know I can feel them. Reminds me of home…" Krystal adds, before giving a platonic sigh. "Oi, you alright there Krys?†"Yes, I'm fine, you worrywart." Krystal replies, rolling her eyes. "I'm just trying to say this place, even though it’s bustling and ever-noisy, now really feels like home for me... Mostly thanks to you." She adds. "Wait, why is that?†Fox didn't pick up what she meant with the statement. Of course, the vulpine was more focused at looking at her face (rather lost in his wonders). "Who else? You helped me fit in this new society, to begin with, and not to mention I would have died if you didn't release me back at Sauria. There’s just a lot I have to thank you for..." Krystal states. “I’ll simply be happy knowing that whatever you’re doing, there’s no regrets left behind… someone as wonderful like you deserves that much, Krystal.†Fox states, in a soothing voice. Upon hearing this, the fun smirk of Krystal was replaced by a slight blush, and a smile of happiness from the flattering words. Fox gently reached with his hand to touch the blue vixen's face. Krystal actually didn't mind his touch. She actually liked the occasion. The turquoise eyes of Krystal met the other vulpine's dark green eyes. Truly that moment became somewhat special for the two. Krystal's arms gently wrapped around her companion's shoulders. She could sense the various thoughts going on Fox's mind, but she did find no ill intent within them. It was rather clear that the two were enjoying the moment like nothing else mattered. Rather unavoidably, the couple attempted to kiss each other. This was one of the rare occasions where there wasn't a nearby unpleasant teammate who is prone to exploiting the occasion for jokes, or one whose presence could just feel awkward. Fox and Krystal's faces gradually neared. It seems it was only a matter of time until that happened; the sunset turning the skies into an orange tint, the city lights slowly appearing, and the lack of the common city noise, only occasionally interrupted by a faraway aircar flyby sound. Their lips touch each other’s, and the vulpines are filled with emotion of both joy and pleasure at their hearts. It is needless to say that the pair is madly in love. The moment was short-lived, however. A beeping communicator noise barges awkwardly through the romantic mood of the moment. "...How did I see something like this coming?" Fox says after stepping back from Krystal, rather disappointed, and embarrassed. "I... Um... I think you should answer… It should be important to call at, um… A time like this…" Krystal stutters, now blushing due to the awkward incident. Well, that was... Disagreeable...Krystal thought to herself. As much as she loved Fox, she couldn't find many proper situations to express that... well, properly. Despite being in a team with a good-natured tech geek and a joker ace, it could feel awkward to be subject of joke. "Talk about importance… Isn’t this kinda redundant?" Fox muses. "As if anything could be more important..." He adds, causing a giggle on Krystal's part. The vulpine grabs the communicator from his pocket, actually already considerably annoyed by the continuous beeps. Ugh, those things annoy the heck out of me. Convenient communication my--, he thought, before being cut mid-sentence; "You know what? I agree, hee hee..." Krystal had picked up his thought, saying that with a smirk shot across her face. "Oh, you..." ---- He turned on his communicator and saw the call ID. "Can't I just catch a break?" Fox argues. "Not when it’s just loafing all day!" The familiar-sounding voice of a certain avian comes from the device. "I wasn't ‘loafing’! It's just that I have... More important things to do." Fox answers, as he stops to look at Krystal for a moment. "Ooh, 'more important things', huh? I see… Perhaps I've called just at the right time... Is Krystal there with you? Heh, heh, heh..." Falco says, already with a mischievous voice tone. "Yes, and perfect timing, Falco." Fox says. "So before I decide to turn this off, why did you call me in first place?" "Cut to the chase, you see: I've just received this letter telling that 'The CDF Science Division is requesting the services of Captain Fox McCloud and his team in a matter which may require the skills of one or more of the individuals from mercenary team StarFox precisely. Report to CDF HQ for further orders if you accept this mission'." Falco reads the letter. "I don't know why the Science Division is calling for us, but I heard these guys got a fat paycheck." "A 'fat paycheck'? As in...?" Fox asks, more interested about the matter. "Enough and quite a bit more than that to practice target shooting with diamond targets.†"...You are kidding me." Fox says in a now doubtful tone. "I'm serious, man! I myself am wondering how they got all that money! I wouldn’t lie about a thing that big, and even if I did, don’t you think I would be noticed with THAT much of a payment?†The avian replies. "Yeah, right. But if it’s true that they have a nice amount of cash to do… whatever they’re doing…" Fox states. "Hey, isn't Slippy's father, Beltino, the research director? Maybe he has some more information for us on that." "I tried calling him, but he doesn’t answer. Beltino should be busy with something there" Falco replies. "Well, in this case I suppose that Slippy can brief us on that." Fox says. "Krystal and I will go on ahead. Meet us there, then we’ll see if we can find Slippy there as well." he adds, before actually hanging up. ---- "Well… Looks like we’ll see something less idle, hm?" Krystal says, breaking her silence. "Perhaps. Though, I don’t think we need to worry about being in danger this time, because as far as I remember, there isn't anything threatening Lylat since the last of Andross and his rebels, and the Aparoids were put an end." Fox states. "Most probably they want to test some new combat vehicle design. You know these guys; science this, experiment that..." "Well, we'll find out that soon enough." Krystal says, smiling a little. "We better get going now; otherwise Falco may call again to ask why we're taking too long and… Well..." She adds, as she winces with her eyes, raising an eyebrow. "Oh, yeah... That." Fox definitely knew what she meant. More importantly, he knew what Falco would end up thinking. Fox turns rather rapidly towards indoors, being held by Krystal's hand as he does. "Wait!... Fox..." The vixen nears her face to Fox once again, and gives him a gentle kiss to his cheek. "...Thank you." She says in a soft tone. After Krystal backs away from Fox, the vixen walks indoors with him. ---- Meanwhile in Slippy’s personal workshop, it was possible to see the toad in question working on a semi-functional Arwing, as well as what seemed like an unfinished prototype component. “Alright… Reconfiguring energy output to shields…†As Slippy does it, the Arwing stops and drops unpowered to the floor with a loud metallic “CLANGâ€. “Grrh!... This keeps happening!†Slippy jumps out of the cockpit, mumbling to the video log recorder near. “Okay… In theory, these prototype upgrades I’m trying to get working would allow for shields function using only thirty-five percent of the available energy, which would raise the energy output to weapons and enable the use of a prototype warp drive, but whenever I re-calibrate them, the whole system goes out!†Slippy then is surprised by a chime from his computer. “Huh?†It was a message from the CDF HQ. “Hello, it’s dad. No time to explain now. I've called the rest of your team here to the HQ. It’s some matter of the Science Division, and perhaps you’re required as well. –Beltino†“The Science Division?†Slippy thinks out loud. In a rush, Slippy turns off the power to the Arwing, grabs his backpack, following to run out of the workshop. He didn’t know or really care actually what the cause was, but it was reason enough to get him running. “Off with being stuck in that workshop! About time something showed up!†---- Leaving a small shuttle transport, Fox and Krystal arrive at the headquarters building, both using their personal CDF officer outfits. Greeted at the entrance area by Falco and Slippy, the reception lobby had a few officers around, but Beltino wasn’t there. "So, you're here." Falco says as the vulpine couple arrives. "Slippy, could you tell us about what Beltino wants?" "You tell me. I don’t know, either! I thought he would be here by now." Slippy says. "Wonder why he--" "Well, well, here I am then." Slippy is interrupted as Beltino walks into the scene. “Perhaps just at the right time, heh.†“Hello, Beltino.†Fox greets the toad. “So, what is it you need from us? I’m taking it’s something important since you gathered all of us here.†“Indeed it is Fox. It’s something concerning both you and the rest of your crew. I must say though it’s something of secretive nature… Would you mind to come over to a place with less staring eyes, perhaps?†Beltino states. Fox nods accordingly, and proceeds to follow Beltino with the others. “May I ask, where exactly are we going now, Beltino? And what we’re supposed to be doing here?†Krystal queries. “We’re going to a higher-security section of the headquarters. We’ll be able to discuss the matter more freely once we get there.†he answers. After following Beltino for a bit, they find a reinforced blast door. Beltino uses a keycard in a console beside it, unlocking and opening the doors, revealing an elevator. "The lift will take us down into the high-security area, which is also where the Science Corps hold one of their assets. Now, continue on, shall we?" Beltino says. As the team steps into the elevator, it quickly starts heading down. For a brief moment, the lights flicker, and at the same time, Krystal cowers with an angsty expression for a second. "Hey, what was that?†Fox asks. "I'm... I'm not sure. I just felt something strange...†the vixen answers. "What do you mean with that?†Fox questions. "I can’t tell... It just feels..." Krystal says, with a pause. "Powerful..." ---- The lift unlocks and opens as it comes to a stop, this time revealing an advanced research laboratory. The holographic monitors and large viewscreens were visible in all directions, being seen at the same time there were experiments of all kinds being conducted, as well as a large amount of researchers from several Lylat races. What seemed to be an experimental engine had a quite a crowd gathering. As usual, Slippy lets his fascination towards science drive him around. Dazzled at the tech wonders, he began walking, looking at all the large and minor techy works that he didn’t see before. "And finally here! Welcome to the CDF Science Division, Tier Three." Beltino says. "Now, you might be wondering why all that to come here. Well, obviously, we can't let just anyone come here, the place could literally explode, heh! Eh..." The three didn't seem amused or that even pick the apparent joke at all. Actually Falco seems rather annoyed. "...well, that was just a, eh, little joke. Anyway, another reason is that some of this technology is not to fall in the wrong hands." The frog continues. "An experimental engine like that one behind has an unstable power source that may go critical if handled without care, and believe me, you wouldn't want that to happen near you; otherwise it’s molten steel rain and debris everywhere." "But you've got the whole military headquarters above of here! Anyone dumb enough to come here shooting would leave in a coffin.†Falco says. "Yes, yes, I know that. But yet still, it’s not good to have shootouts and killings on the news. And, there is something else here that if leaks out to the public, we're probably in trouble. Real trouble." Beltino says. "Oh, come on! It's not like you're making a doomsday virus or a maniacal robot here! ...Are you?" Falco wonders out loud. "Not as far as I can tell, but who knows next time, heh." Beltino muses. "Now, enough of chat. Please, follow me." As the researcher and the team walk through the large hall, Krystal whispers to Fox; "Fox, remember that strange feeling I had in the elevator?" "Yes, what is it, Krystal?" Fox replies. "Well, it's getting stronger as we go. I don't know what it is, but it’s not just powerful: It’s colossal, and I think we’re getting unsafely close to it." The vixen says. "Hm. I'm not sure if I like what I'm hearing." Fox states. ---- The group enters a small office room. From the looks of it, they can tell this is Beltino's office. Adorned with a few small plants, a couch, along a glass desk and an Arwing sculpture, there is not much else to see, aside from the large window with the laboratory hall outside. The room is soundproofed, so as they enter it, the only noise to be heard is their own footsteps', along with the permanent air ventilation shafts. Slippy proceeds to enter the room last, clumsily. “Eh! Sorry, I think I strayed off back there.†Beltino sits in his chair. "Have a seat, please.†He adds, gesturing towards the couch. As Beltino types in some commands into his computer, shutters block the light from the window. A holographic display is seen in the middle of the room. "I don’t expect you to know it, since this has happened under covert ops directive. A few years ago, the Lylat government privately decided to create a colonization effort in order to expand our exploration initiative and ensure the sustainability and resource viability of the Lylat society. Since we've encountered proofs of other civilizations in various planets, such as the Krazoa both in Cerinia, as Krystal reported in an occasion, and Sauria, this was a clear sign that there were space-faring civilizations out there." He says. "I remember these back at my home world. When I saw their palace in Sauria, the engineering works at their structures were almost identical as the ones in Cerinia." Krystal says. "I've read about similar structures at Aquas. From the descriptions, they also seem very familiar." "Indeed they are. It appears that the Krazoa have mastered the use of the so-called 'warp pads' to transport around planets, and from your report on how you came to Sauria in first place... Let me see here... Yes, they also were able to use this even across different star systems by the use of an enhanced warp pad." He says. "But that’s a bit off-topic, so, back on track; for our explorations, we had picked various excels at fields to be the first colonists into the potential hospitable planets at systems; Clenare, Tariu, Atres and Yatus. Most of them were either planets with similar arid ecosystems to Katina, and some were colder, with more climates of tundra and arctic. Perhaps because their stars had relatively low temperatures - for flaming balls of nuclear fusion, that is." "...Sooo. Where do we come into?" Falco says, quite bored by the little lowdown. "I'll get there. Eventually. Anyway, during our expeditions to a planet in system Clenare, we've found wreckage of an unknown spaceship, however, with no sign of crew inside or outside. It was seemingly abandoned, most likely left adrift. This craft had an impressive amount of technology, but it was very difficult to study its components since it was made of extremely dense alloys." He continues with the explanation. "Now here's the thing..." He says, before displaying a star map in the hologram. "You see, we’re… here, Lylat. Some time ago though, long range probes identified a certain anomaly, believed to be a gravity well caused the local dense star cluster or a dying star. The point is, the cause was neither.†"You mean... It simply appeared there for no reason?" Krystal asks, perplexed by the fact. "Exactly. There were no singularities at that area of space before, and there are no indices so far that it was caused by any natural or artificial occurrences in our galaxy." He answers. "So you're saying it's a negative space wedgie that showed up from limbo? Because I've seen enough of weird stuff like that for a lifetime already..." Falco states. Beltino stands up before continuing; "I said this wasn't an occurrence in our galaxy." "Now, I want you to know that few people were allowed to know what I’m about to tell. You may even feel quite disturbed by it, but please refrain from--" "Right, right, we know, there's some weird shit we'll see and no screw-ups allowed. Shall we continue?" Falco argues. "Falco! Can't you be a little less of a jerk for once?" Krystal complains at Falco’s rudeness. "Pointless!†Falco gives her a dry stare, while Beltino is blank on expressions. “Um…†Krystal lets slip off, blushing a little. “Beltino, you were saying?..." “Oh. *ahem* Well, during a battery of scans that we were doing at the vicinity of the anomaly, we've detected an energy surge within the wormhole.†Beltino explains “When at first we thought that it would collapse into itself, and began an immediate evacuation, we were wrong." Beltino once more changes the display, this time showing several images of a ship different than anything the StarFox team did ever see. "...What is that supposed to be?" Fox asks. "This, is the first vessel we've witnessed that is originated from the other end of the anomaly." Beltino says, as he crops the image to a detail view of the ship. "Whoa dad, wait a second, are you saying that the ship used the wormhole as... Don't know, some sort of portal, perhaps?" Slippy asks, trying to understand how the ship could survive the extreme forces of the travel through a wormhole. "Yes, son. The researchers at the time also had this and many more questions in mind, but other things got in the way, so per say." Beltino states. "After this occasion, we obviously had to develop some sort of communication with the 'visitor'." He adds. "And this wasn't the only time it happened; it happened several other times, with other kinds of ships and very different archetypes for each. Some not as friendly as the others, perhaps… Like I said, it's a few been years since it happened." "So you're saying this has become a two-way passage from here... To where?" Slippy asks. "Actually this obligatorily leads to our next stop." Beltino says as he stands from his chair. The toad inputs a few last commands into his computer, opening a previously locked door into another elevator. "Okay, I know you may be getting sick of this, but yes, elevators are everywhere here. Shall we go in?" He adds. "I'd give you the tour as well, but perhaps we're short in time. We'll head down directly to Tier Zero." "Tier Zero?" Krystal asks. "Yes indeed, and you might want hold on to something. This particular elevator is rather fast.†comes the answer from Beltino. Beltino follows by flipping a switch, causing the elevator to rapidly dive down towards the so-called Tier Zero. ----
  17. I've never played Starfox Command. Based on what I've seen throughout the site, I found that most of the people here seem to dislike the game, specifically for its story. While I've not played it, I actually, based on what I've read, dislike its gameplay and like its storyline. Reading its storyline, as one might put it, gave me feels. It made me sad. And that one ending where I kind of want a game to be sad. Something that evokes a lot of emotion, y'know? Of course, that doesn't mean I want any of this to be canon. As far as canon is concerned, if any of the endings of Command actually happened the games would be ruined almost beyond repair, I think. I also think some of the other endings such as the one where was very weird. But ultimately, I've not played the games so I can't really say much on this. I will say that I didn't like the art of the games, and I don't have a clear understanding of what the gameplay is like. No matter. I want to hear what you guys think. And please let me know and forgive me if I've broken some rule by creating this topic. Please let me know how the gameplay actually works in this game, by the way. Also, would Command actually ruin my view of the Starfox series? I played and liked both Adventures and Assault, and loved Assault. I also read the N64 comic and the comic Farewell Beloved Falco. I liked them both but preferred Farewell Beloved Falco. Also, do characters talk to you in the middle of gameplay like other starfox games? Something interesting: I found it rather odd to find X Play interviewing one of the Starfox creators who made the originals, the N64 one, and Command, I believe, and they praised him for Command and dissed Adventures and Assault, which I found unusual. Despite what I've said here, I think Command is likely the worst out of the series.

    Starfox Character Discussion

    All right. I wanted to have a thread where we could discuss the characters of the Starfox series. Who's your favorite and least favorite? Who would you like to see more or less of? Why? Is there anything you wish they'd do with the characters? And, most importantly.... Will Slippy ever be a competent pilot? xD You get the idea. I wanted to discuss the characters. Truth be told, I originally wanted to debate about whether or not a certain character was a good character or not, but I suppose creating this much broader thread will lead to that debate anyway. Plus it'll give people more to talk about. And yes, if a debate winds up starting, remember: Keep it civil.

    Star Fox Trailer

    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?

    furries and furry fandom

    -okay,so in my research and writing of starfox fandom,i ran into furry fandom.now,nothing wrong with it,i'm a believer in that you can do whatever you want as long as nobody gets hurt... anyway,starfox and furry fandom. -how many people here are furries or like anthros? was starfox like a gateway to it? -i'm not furry/anthro lover per se,but i have an online friend who is and i myself have always had an appreciation for anthro art though i'll be honest,i always had a love for kemonomimi (you know,japanese manga trope,the people with the furry ears and tail,ex:inuyasha).i find it interesting ,but i didn't come to starfox because of a love for anthros or kemonomimi,but in spite of it.

    Star Fox Month

    On youtube, a user called Yuirofwind celebrates March as Star Fox month. He only has 3 videos made so far this month, but they are pretty interesting and though a bit long, they are worth checking out. This one is on Dinosaur Planet and how Star Fox Adventures ended up being what it is. This one is on betas of most of the games. And this is just a fun one he did talking about a creepypasta that he found about Star Fox.
  24. Hello! I, Battlechili1, am new here. I became a Starfox fan late last year after playing through Starfox Adventures. I have since played Starfox Assault as well and read the comic Farewell Beloved Falco. Also, I noticed a lot of people on these forums are furries or bronies. I am both. Starfox was what I think really got me into the furry fandom. Anyways, hello! Feel free to ask me questions!
  25. Hey guys, we are working on a game you might like We call it "Sky Arena". Sky Arena is a multiplayer arena flight shooter reminiscent of the old Star Fox games. Play alone, online against other players, in 4 player splitscreen against your friends or 4 player splitscreen online against the rest of the world and demonstrate your mastery of the controller.
