  1. The rant has been moved to a new thread due to post length limitations in my OP here. Read the rant >HERE. DO NOT POST IN THAT THREAD. IT IS FOR READING PURPOSES ONLY. ALL DISCUSSION OF ASSAULT AND MY RANT SHOULD BE HELD HERE.
  2. Hello, my name is Chris. I do a series where I take things commonly not very well-liked, and go over reasons to like them. My most recent episode is Star Fox Zero. I think the game's getting loads of negative heat all over, so hopefully my video brings some cool things in the game to light. Let me know what you think, thank you! Video:
  3. Greetings, Star Fox Zero has been in waiting for people for a long time, today is finally the day. Does it live to the Star Fox name? Some critics don't seem to think so, others do. It's been a mixed bag. Honestly I am really loving this game, but I can see where the issues lie. ANY SPOILERS I WILL PUT HIDDEN CONTROLS First off and pretty well known to everyone, the controls take a lot of time to understand. I don't think their horrible but they are awkward and take hours of gameplay to really get them down. Once gotten down, they are a bit useful. The idea of moving the targeting around your arwing and taking enemies down in a more open range is awesome. The twin stick is also a little confusing and at times clunky but again, after some time I figured it out and was able to play along. Overall the controls are very awkward so I strongly recommend spending some time getting used to them, after a few levels you should pick up on how they work. STORY The story is very old time Star Fox related. Basically, it's the Lylat wars. The same story we've known from Star Fox on the SNES, and Star Fox 64. Not much really changes besides the whole portal thing (seen in the trailers) so its very familiar. I like it but I know some other common players wanted something a little more different so again a mixed bag here. GPAPHICS/LEVEL DESIGN I love these levels. For Star Fox its something new, its something amazing to look at. I literally went back to one level just to look around a little bit. While the planet names are mostly similar to the originals, they definetly gave them a Wii U shine. Sure, its not PS4/Xbox One graphics, but its a damn good transition from past Star Fox games, and it looks great. I think the visuals and the overall good frame rate is amazing. The frame drops here and there but its nothing horrible, DZ posted a video a while back from another Youtuber, at worst its about 45 FPS, maybe a giant explosion in a cutscene it goes to 30 FPS but usually not during gameplay. Overall visually this game is great, at least in my opinion. MUSIC/VOICE ACTING/SOUNDS The music is quite great. Well put together, uses new and old songs. I think after the music complaints in Star Fox 64 3D they wanted to show they can make an amazing soundtrack and boy did they. I love the music. The voices are much better than in SF643D, they sounded like they actually cared about their jobs. The sound effects are good overall, a couple sounded a little cheap but nothing that makes a major issue. SCORING/MEDAL SYSTEM This was actually very important to me. Mainly because Star Fox 64 I loved shooting for big scores. However this game the scoring is different, somewhat. You still get points for each kill but getting those combo kills has changed. It used to be mainly charge shots, but now if you can take down that squad of enemies as quickly as possible you'll get a few HIT +1s, its interesting but it works and its great for those who like to just keep shooting those blasters. However, I do not like the medal system. It has the old medal scores for levels, but what I don't like is how some of them work, and what is unlocked. I feel like getting these medals isn't as important as past games. Mainly because the medals in SF64 got Expert mode. This one, im not sure I mean maybe its just me but I feel the rewards I got so far have not been very entertaining. I later got my collector's book and checked out all the rewards, they are below for those wondering. REPLAYABILITY This is important in any Star Fox game. Does it have Replayability? In my opinion yes, but it's different. As its more of a just level select on the main game. Just pick a planet and go. It's fun to replay levels especially for secrets, but playing the game from start to finish just doesn't have that feeling Star Fox 64 does when replaying. Maybe its because accomplishing or failing a mission in Star Fox 64 felt had more positive or negative consequences, wheras here you can just go back and replay it again. However... SPOILER ALERT BELOW DIFFICULTY I think this is another part I love about this game. This game is way harder than past Star Fox games in my opinion. It's much more challenging and keeps you coming back for more. Plus taking alternate paths can make it more challenging but in a fun way, making it a fun shoot em up. AMIIBO FUNCTIONALITY Fox and Falco amiibos work with the game. Unknown if more will be supported in the future but so far, what they unlock as been quite fun. OVERALL THOUGHTS After many hours of playing, overall I love this game. Yes it has clunky controls and some other little things could have done better. But they tried to go back to the past and they did. I felt like a kid again playing this and it was a fun adventure. While maybe Nintendo could have included more content, they knew the people wanted one thing, the good old 3D shoot em up, and while they added something new it still feels like Star Fox. I feel critics aren't giving this game a good enough chance, the only thing I can agree with mainly is the awkward controls. Overall, amazing game, I still find Star Fox 64 better but I'd say its #3 in the best Star Fox games (#2 being Star Fox on the SNES). I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

  5. Review of Star Fox Wii U?

    Hey. Out of curiosity, is anyone planning to review the upcoming Star Fox Wii U game once it comes out?
  6. 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.

  7. 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.
