  1. Battle Mode

    Why didn't Battle Mode make it into Star Fox 2 final release?
  2. My idea for a Star Fox game

    My idea for a Star Fox game would be a massive multiplayer online game where people could pilot Arwings and either battle or race each other for galactic win. You could have a customization thing like Guitar Hero where you make not only your own ships but your own characters/wingmates. You could make furries and ships and then launch them into battle! In addition, there would be an adventure mode that would be offline. This mode would be similar to Star Fox Zero but it would be its OWN game and NOT a remake of Star Fox 64. This kind of idea IMO would save the series but only if done properly. Thoughts?
  3. \ (_, / (_)\_( )_\ FOX BECOMES ADDICTED TO CHEESE: EPIC NEW VERSION EDITION ) /\/ _ (o)( The Shining Achievement of All FoxKind \ \_) (o) / \/_/ A desolate planet of pollution and waste. Venom's Voleech City was ugly as rotting paste. As I say all of this, Fox had to make haste. He was scurrying behind buildings and blasting at bots, bursting their circuits as they screamed out 'bleeps' and 'blots'. Made of tech, they were, they had no blood clots. Fox's boots continued to make more trit-trots, as he fox-trotted his way into the Death Weapon Factory. Robot armies followed him inside, could it be that Fox had nowhere to hide? "I need to destroy these weapons so that Andross won't use them against Corneria" Fox thought to himself. He isolated each in a gravitational field, then set a timer on each one, eventually they'd come out well done. Sooner or later, they bursted into flames, sending scrap metal everywhere, killing the robot armies who had no names. Then Fox got an incoming message from Falco, not Slippy. Man oh man, is that bird ever lippy. "Andross is here, he's bringing death and fear. Get your ass to Corneria, hurry right now! We can't make cheese, they've slaughtered every last cow! We've even got less freedom here than on Venom, I'm just thanking God that my jacket is Denim" said Falco. Fox jumped in his ship as soon as he could, then set off for Corneria, to restore peace and brotherhood. When he arrived on his homeworld he was not very pleased. The cities were in shambles, even Admiral Z's house of cheese. Cheese had been banned under Emperor Andross's new law. No one could have cheese throughout the land, not cubed nor sliced, not even one strand. Children were crying and wailing in pain, where was Fox when they needed him? No cheese is quite lame! The giant block of cheese atop Admiral Z's had melted down, far down to the ground, trapping Cornerians...wait isn't the earth round? "Cheese can't possibly be that frickin' sticky. Something's rotten in Wisconsin, and this ain't no job for Slippy" thought Fox. Fox got an incoming message from Wolf, who was flying overhead. He didn't like Fox, he wanted Fox to be dead. "Hey Fox it's the Wolfster, your people are worthless eaters. We added adhesive properties to the cheese, so now they're all stuck. You'll never defeat Andross cuz face it Fox, you suck. Cheese is for losers so kiss your planet goodbye. All you animals must bow before Andross and die" said Wolf. Sick of all the distress and war, Fox couldn't take it, no not anymore. Fox dropped his cell phone, and began losing his mind. He couldn't take what was happening, even so, saving planets was his 9 to 5 grind. But when all seemed lost, Peppy flew by, dispatching himself with a parachute to the ground, sniffing out trouble better than a foxhound. He got out a long stick of measuring tape, and began charting, graphing, and plotting the melted cheese landscape. Finally he knew just what the Star Fox team should do. "Ah, dang, I'm gettin' carless. Fox, Gimme a spare Lylation Nova Bomb" ordered Peppy. Fox pulled a Nova Bomb out of his pocket and placed it in Peppy's hands. "Ah, that be the one. Now watch and learn Fox mah boy" said Peppy. Peppy began strapping on giant mecha-gloves to prevent his hands from getting stuck, then started lifting up the cheese straight off the earth. That took strength, power, and mirth? He rolled up the cheese against the nova bomb, then hastened to a cannon, firing it at Andross's ships one by one. If they wouldn't let Cornerians have cheese then let them have what they took. In the form of planetary defense prepared by a master cook. "DO A CHEESE ROLL!" ordered Peppy. "Man, where'd you learn to do that?" asked Fox in amazement. "I learned it at the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. It's an event near Gloucester, England, where they roll cheese down hills. Now if you don't mind, it's time to defeat the emperor's evil shills!" said Peppy, rolling up the nova bomb in all of the melted sticky cheese from the demolition of Admiral Z's restaurant. Fox began rolling up a nova bomb in cheese, and freed all the citizens who had been stuck. Then Fox and Peppy loaded up the cannons, taking out each one of Andross's minions. Eventually appeared Andross himself, pissed off as hell, like a wargod-elf. Fox jumped into his Arwing, and prepared to take him down. He wasn't gonna lose his beloved planet to that Planet of the Apes reject CLOWN! "You will die, just like your father" declared Andross. "Not over my dead body!" said Fox. "You do realize the irony and foolishness of your response, do you not, Fox?" thundered Andross. "I realize that you're going down!" said Fox. "If I'm going down, then I'm taking you with me" said Andross. "NEVER!" yelled Fox. "It is foolish to come against me. You know that I control the galaxy!" said Andross. "The universe is like waaaay bigger than that" replied Fox. "TASTE CHEESE YOU FREAAAAK!" yelled Fox, firing a cheese laced nova bomb into Andross's mouth. Andross's ship exploded and Andross parachuted himself to the ground, along with his robot buddy and number one confidante and fan...Fantron. "I have a splitting headache," said Andross. "Why must I always lose?" he wailed, pounding the earth with his fist. "Master, perhaps next time you should attack your own planet, Venom. Then get everyone to think Fox was responsible. Maybe then your people would finally support you and your unquenchable thirst for war" said Fantron. "Not a bad idea" said Andross in his evil robotic-like Darth Vader-esque voice. But then Fox cornered Andross, plasma blaster in tow. He looked quite proud, he had put on a good show! "Correction Emperor. That's a very BAD idea!" said Fox. "You're going to Corneria War Crimes Prison for at least thirteen years, you won't get any cheese, just cheap Norwegian beers!" Andross looked confused. Later that day... Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy, watching cheese burn in a restaurant founded by a hippie! "Yay, Fox!" clapped Falco, Peppy, and Slippy, as a giant block of cheese slowly melted under a candle's flames. They all clinged wine glasses together. "LONG LIVE TEAM STAR FOX. AND LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...CHEESE!" they all yelled. The three men cheered and shared a group hug, then devoured more cheese and dived into an oversized apple cider jug. Outside the room was the beautiful Krystal, aspy. She had seen enough, Fox just wasn't her guy. Note: I took the words "THE END" and made them be out of cheese. Then I rolled them up in an awesomely tasty text sandwich. / \ (_, THE END ) /\/ _ (o)( \ \_) (o) / \/_/
  4. Krystal Becomes Infatuated with Cheese So we all know the story, it had something to do with cheese, and how with cheese Fox was easy to please. But there's more to it than that as this new tale shall prove, for this is when Krystal caught on to the groove. It started out a day like any other, but Krystal had moved on! Fox was away from her life, yes indeed gone. Mocked for having been part of Star Wolf briefly, she took up residence on the delightful Planet Kew. But her true feelings were just like her fur...very blue. So she joined a coven of fox girls just like her, hoping that for her sadness this would be the cure. But it wasn't you see, Fox wasn't gone, deep down in Krystal's heart Fox still lingered on. "I'm delighted to attend this meeting as you can see. I'm not the least bit lonely, I feel quite free!" said Krystal. "Good," said Fay sitting to the right of Krystal. "Let's do a conciousness raising session, with trees made of nettle!" "Sorry to interrupt but she takes cheese to each session. She has some Chedder and Feta right now, I have the most distinct impression" said Fara. "No, no, no, I'm not up for that. Why is everyone staring at me and Katt?" asked Krystal. "It's the cheeses behind your backs," said Fay with a smirk. "Why not share some with us? Might be a nice perk!" "No, I won't" said Katt. "I like cheese too much, cheese I must never lack. My only true boyfriend is Monteray Jack" Krystal sighed. She had never been a fan of cheese. But see, Fox was, and his soul was something Krystal just had to appease. "This cheese reminds me of someone I loved. Someone I cared for, kissed, and hugged" said Krystal, embarresed. She ran away. "She takes that cheese to every meeting here!" said Fay. "AND SHE NEVER EATS IT!" she added. KRYSTAL JUMPED IN HER ARWING WITH THE CHEESE IN TOW, SHE WASN'T FEELiNG TOO GOOD, THIS WE ALL KNOW "So they don't like me clutching on to cheese, do they? I wasn't about to convince them it was my baby, I need Fox Mccloud back, he's the mashed potato to my gravy" said Krystal. Feeling sad, with dejected eyes, she flew herself into a black hole. She got warped to Planet Earth, London UK to be exact. Krystal sounded like she came from there, we'll never know why. Perhaps it's past life stuff, but for now, gotta fly! Her arwing crashed and she jumped out with a parachute. She brushed dust off her legs and frantically searched the wreckage for cheese. She pulled out some cheese and got down on her knees. "Oh, cheese, you'll always be special to me. My one reminder of whom I love, Fox if you're still out there, please show me a dove" said Krystal. A dove flew down and stole her cheese. Krystal ran towards a policewoman. "You look rather blue," said the policewoman. "I am blue, my name is Krystal, yes it's true. A dove flew off into the sky with my cheese, he did not even ask first, nor did he say please!" replied Krystal. "I can't help you this instant, I think it's been too long a shift. I've never seen a fox person, if you get my drift. But cheese? Yes, it's delicious when spread over fresh mana. Krystal, has anyone told you that you sound just like Princess Diana?" said the cop. Krystal broke down in tears and yelled out to the Krazoa to take her away to Fox. So they gave her a test. A taste test of cheeses, conducted by them. The Krazoas loved cheese. With cheese they were easy to appease. So they brought her to where Fox was...sitting in a London pub, eating cheese and drinking wine, while helping Falco flick away a bug. "Fox," said Krystal tapping Fox on the back. "You know I'm the only one that can understand you, I just have a knack!" "Do I know you, blue lady? Oh, Krystal, that's right. It's called a rivalry okay? Let me get back to my rivalries!" said Fox, who then proceeded to chat with Falco. "That bird can buzz off, he's bloomin' pissing me off. Now Fox, look at me! We were a team, like Mcnee and Dianna Rigg. Would you forgive me if I handed you a fig?" "Figs are old school and I'm just as depressed as you. My nose is stuck to this table like glue!" said Fox. "Fox, I have cheese!" said Krystal. Fox looked at the cheese. "Get that away!" said Fox violently slapping away the food. Krystal's dress came undone, leaving her in a bikini. All the onlookers looked, Krystal, she was damn pretty! "Terrific, everyone's staring at me and my rack. Fox won't you please come back?" said Krystal. "Can't right now!" said Fox. "Oh, please, Fox, let's go right now! Repair to our Arwings, with that food made from a cow" said Krystal. "Food made from a cow?" asked Fox, with a twinkle in his eye. "You mean cheese right?" "Yes, Fox. Cheese!" said Krystal. "To heck with cheese!" said Fox. Krystal started to cry. "No, no, hear me out, you must know the reason why!" said Fox. Brushing away a tear, Krystal listened. "Krystal I realize I love you more than anything in the universe. You're the greatest gift ever, this I now know, let's rise from the pits where we sunk so low" said Fox. Fox looked into Krystal's eyes, so sweet and sublime. He saw the cheese in her hands, and realized she was one hundred percent divine. "I can't believe how foolish I was!" said Fox with a teary eyed grin. He hugged Krystal, and they both shared a kiss. The crowd was confused, but to Fox and Krystal, this was bliss. "Falco, just admit my boyfriend's a better pilot than you. Go home to your cat, she'll repair your beak like new!" said Krystal. Back in the Arwing: "You were actually going to change your name to Kursed?" asked Fox. "Yes, yes, yes I was. But now we have each other and a cargo hold full of cheese. And our beautiful sets of furs, free of all fleas!" replied Krystal. THE END
  5. The next Star Fox game

    With E3 having gone by and no mention of Star Fox: Grand Prix what does everyone think the next game will be like? Will there even be a next game? We all know about the Arwing in Starlink, but aside from that, was Grand Prix just a rumor? And what will become of the franchise as a whole?
  6. Star Fox SNES on the RDP

    I really enjoy playing Star Fox on the Retro Duo Portable! For those who don't know there exists a handheld Super NES known as Retro Duo, and it plays Star Fox effortlessly. I can play it outside! The battery life is cool too.
  7. Star Fox Grand Prix

    I don't come here much, because honestly, this site has hit a low point. It seems very quiet, and it has recently been fairly boring to come here. When I saw this news, however, I jumped in joy at the possibility. I decided to come back here today to join in on the discussion everyone was undoubtedly having. So imagine my surprise when I come here and can't see one reference to the two days old news, not even on the sites main page. In case you missed it, there's a rumour going around that Retro Studios is working on a game called "Star Fox Grand Prix", which is supposedly a mix between F-Zero and Diddy Kong racing, set in the Star Fox universe. The game will apparently have bosses, like Diddy Kong Racing. For anyone interested, here's a relevant link: https://kotaku.com/rumors-suggest-that-retro-studios-is-making-a-star-fox-1826020570
  8. SF1 OST Scans

  9. Buying the SNES Classic

    Like many of the devoted faithful, I and many others woke up bright and early the morning of the 29th to line up at Toys 'R Us to get a chance at buying a vaunted SNES Classic. My roommates and I piled into my roommate's beleagured old Volvo, and arrived at 8AM sharp, finding a line that was already stretching back to the entrance of the adjoining Baby's R Us. It was a chill fall morning, and I offered multiple times to leave my spot in line to run to the Wawa a block away for some coffee and donuts. Everyone else was good, apparently. In front of us, a fashionably dressed mother attempted to explain to her equally well-dressed children why she was "buying a toy for herself". It vaguely dawned on me as to whether or not those kids would even comprehend the games on the SNES Classic as even being video games as they knew them. If those games were relatively primitive and obtuse to me growing up in the early 2000s, I can only imagine how incomprehensibly primitive they must look to fresh modern audiences. Or perhaps not so primitive, given the massive revival in sidescrollers and 8-bit gaming. Who's to say? Behind us, a rather grizzled scalper in a ratty sports coat and faded Pokémon tee. We'll call him Al, totally not after the villain from Toy Story 2. Al moaned loudly about Target's "bullsh*t" policy of only allowing one console per customer, and droned on about his console collection-2 of every console from the NES onwards in the box, the entire TurboGrafix 16 library, and was currently on the hunt for a "third" Model 1 Sega CD. When I asked how much of those he used, he seemed rather puzzled. "I just emulate them", he said, cocking his head to the side. Quite a character. As the hour went on, more and more people began to show. Rare sightings of the elusive inhabitantis cellarium were made. Young and old queued up in a line that reached almost to the Wawa a block away. It was hard to tell if the young kids were dragging their parents along, or their parents were dragging their kids along. Attire ranged from stained graphic tees to Louis Vuitton, and there was a trio cosplaying as the Mario Bros. and Princess Peach. Finally the manager of the store walked out, congratulated all who showed, and quietly began handing out tickets to purchasers before admitting them into the store. Just as it seemed there was enough to go around, a twenty-something in a black S550 and matching suit hurried into the back of the line, only to be greeted with a glum look on the manager's face. He walked off silently, tail between his legs, and everyone began to sort into the store. I probably wasn't the only one holding their breath, anticipating a storm. As someone who hadn't set foot in a Toys 'R Us in a good decade and a half, there was a weird feeling of nostalgia mixed with a feeling of being out of place. Fidget spinners, drones, and My Little Pony merch sat alongside the Rubik's Cubes, RC cars, and Pokémon cards, bringing back some nostalgia and relief that nostalgia is still being made. My reminiscence was short lived, however, as the line moved forward at record speed. My roommate almost snatched the holy object out of the cashier's hands, and it was back to the dorms in a flash. No time was wasted setting the diminutive console up. I really can't emphasize how tiny this thing is-it's exactly the size of an NES cartridge and weighs about as much. My roommate immediately booted up Super Metroid, and marveled at the quality of the graphics and sound. I got about 30 minutes of gameplay in myself, playing through Corneria in Star Fox in order to unlock Star Fox 2. Overall, it's mostly similar to the ROM that has been available over the internet since the late '90s. The dialogue and font are perhaps the biggest changes (similar to the footage shown at CES 1995, before the game was officially canned), and I'm sure someone will weep for the loss of "Expert Mode" on the main menu. Lock-on targetting seems to be missing, making space battles a bit more of a hassle. To this day, it remains my favorite title in the series, and continues to fascinate and entertain every time. The graphics scale nicely to modern HD sets, and a pseudo-CRT filter is provided for those that desire a more retro experience. Definitely better than plugging an original Super Nintendo via composite, but the scanline filter seemed a bit strong compared to the original equipment on an actual CRT. The sound is a perhaps a bit more crisp than the original hardware, but it still has the rich warmth and deep bass that we know and love. Super Mario World is airy and pleasant, Super Metroid envelopes you in dark, skin-crawling synths, and Star Fox carries a lot of punch and images fantastically. Frame-rates are at least as good as the original games, perhaps a bit smoother with the benefits of modern tech. Overall, it's definitely on par with a good emulator or the Virtual Console platform, and whether or not it's worth buying is entirely up to you. For what it is, you're getting an officially licensed Nintendo product with a good $800 worth of games and no aging equipment to worry about. That's 10x the Classic's MSRP, and roughly 4x what the ballsiest scalpers are demanding online. Sadly, Nintendo's limited it to just one product run of course, so the average consumer looking to relive their childhood or get into retrogaming will probably have to look elsewhere. All in all, nice piece of kit if you can get it.
  10. -If this post isn't allowed on this site/thread please delete it!- I need to be more active on this forum, and now that I can finally login I will be! But- I do have one thing that i'm curious about. Has anyone attempted to actually look into the internal files of Zero for Audio clips, Textures, models, etc? I can hardly find anything related to that myself. And feel like it'd be a neat project to do. Keep in mind that I don't wanna do this to widely distribute the assets. This is more of a "How hard of a task can this really be?" Kind of deal. Just more of something that would be neat I guess.
  11. ORIGINAL SOURCE: http://infinityh.deviantart.com/art/Landmaster-Walker-2-171424084 The Landmaster would be a MONSTER, if it were allowed to transform into this. It would fit right in with the Destroids of Robotech! But what do you guys think if this old idea?
  12. Happy 20th Birthday, Star Fox 64!

    I've mentioned Star Fox online's twitter saying "Mine would be 'Never give up. Trust your instincts.'" Sound off your favourite quotes right here, and let's give Star Fox 64's 20th birthday a welcome celebration!
  13. Today Nintendo unveiled the long-suspected sequel to last fall's NES Classic. Like it's predecessor, it is a compact unit shaped like it's namesake, with a number of classic titles pre-loaded. And also like it's predecessor, it will undoubtedly be rarer than hen's teeth when it hits the shelves September 29, 2017, retailing at a nice $79.99. 21 titles have been announced, all classics: Super Mario World, Earthbound, Mega Man X, F-Zero, Super Mario RPG, Star Fox 2, etc. Yes. You read that right. Star Fox 2, the game Nintendo has basically ignored and swept under the rug since 1995, will finally see the light of day on the SNES Classic, alongside it's beloved predecessor. Now, of course, fans have had access to the game since the late '90s, and it's pretty easy to find a completely playable ROM on the internet. However, developer Dylan Cuthbert has alluded to a different, even-more-complete build in interviews, so it remains to be seen which version of Star Fox 2 will be included. Whether it's the one we've come to know and love, or something completely different, it's just amazing that it's getting an official release. Heck, even having the original Star Fox on there is great, in and of itself, since copyright issues (and technical issues as well, I believe) have precluded it from getting a Virtual Console release until now. I am not kidding when I'm saying that I'm super hyped for this, folks! Details, and the full list of games, can be found on Nintendo's website http://www.nintendo.com/super-nes-classic
  14. Ace Waters done did a Star Fox Remix!

    I'm The VGM Lover. I share a good Video Game tune/remix/cover every single day down on my twitter page (which you can find in my signature down below). I also happen to have been here since 2015, a year before I started my twitter (I used to call myself amcintyr9998, and was nicknamed Cintyr, until I finally changed it later in 2016). When I see a damn good cover of a damn good Star Fox tune like this one, you bet your bums I'm gonna showcase it, and now, I'd also like to take this time to open up a new conversation on it. If you have thoughts on it, share it here! The pleasure is all mine!
  15. If you've got any particular genres that I didn't include, sound off with a post!
  16. ^^ Is this all that needs to be said, or what do you think should've been in Smash Bros ages ago?
  17. Mike & Ryan play Star Fox!

    Thoughts on the conversation?
  18. 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!
  19. Krystal support team

    Hey all! I want to start a Krystal support team so I thought I'd pitch the idea here. Me and a bunch of other people on Twitter have started a group in hopes to unify as many Krystal fans as possible, because I've realized that there are SO many Krystal supporters online but they are so scattered and quiet. I think it's important for us to be all commenting together about support for Krystal and 'liking' each other's comments on Youtube/Facebook (extremely important because it means Nintendo themselves WILL see it) I think on Nintendo's official Youtube and Facebook pages are the best places to do these "unified comments", if they continue to see the support for her (and Star Fox Assault, because it signifies not only Krystal's inclusion but also the actual potential for growth the SF series has) then they may take our support into consideration when making a new SF game! I wanted to see if anyone on here wanted to be involved with us actively commenting/liking Krystal related posts on YouTube. I can update this thread with links of videos we'll be targeting for this "unified support" It will really help with our cause and if you are a Krystal supporter then this is a really efficient way of showing that support/increasing her odds of returning to the series in general! Please let me know if any of you are interested!

  21. Star Fox, Star Wars, Star Trek, Mass Effect... Over the past two years, I've become aware of how Star Fox, both as a franchise, and as a universe, is significantly weaker than any other popular series. It can't be compared to anything without almost immediately coming up short of any perks to stand up on. And needless to say, this is extremely unfortunate. The only thing I'm left to do while thinking about this is just, what can be done? Is there ANYTHING in the sci-fi genre that Star Fox has even a fool's chance against? How do we go about recommending improvements to it that'll finally bring it to the public eye for more than a week?
  22. I wonder if anyone thought o' this before...? Which route do you guys think Star Fox would realistically take in Star Fox 64? Would they save the Cornerian Army, including the units stationed in Sector Y and Katina, or would they actively go out of their way to avoid any hassles and just rush to Venom?
  23. Remember Star Fox Assault? The 2005 GCN game whose goal was to return Star Fox to their former glory, but ultimately could not accomplish? Imagine if that game got remastered using today's technology. Take this wonderful video showcasing Fox McCloud in Unreal Engine 4, for example: Just looking at the thumbnail, we could already see one of Star Fox Assault's significant issues being thrown out the window, which are the graphics, obviously. All we would have to do then is take this setting, and then do the following: Replace the Smash models with Assault models instead. Create the necessary HUD information, such as the classic Assault reticle. Map the controls to fit the new engine, while still staying true to the controls of the original (Dual Stick, that is. Not the Basic Controls.) Create maps based on anything and perhaps everything from Star Fox Assault, with Namco Bandai's permission, of course. Make sure it's well animated by today's standards, and the sound quality is top notch. Do all this, and suddenly, Star Fox Assault could be looked at as finally accomplishing the goal that it set over a decade ago, as of this writing. What do you guys think of this idea? Anything you'd like to see if Star Fox Assault were to get remastered?
  24. Some time has now passed, and we've had a while to experience Star Fox Zero. For me personally, the best part of that experience is Return to Corneria. That level is fantastic! It has a great atmosphere, and the music only contributes to that. So what is your favourite level, and why?
  25. Yesterday, I revisited Star Fox 64 3D after a long hiatus. I found myself going back and back again for seemingly no reason! Then, I revisited Training mode. Why? Again, I don't know, except for maybe one thing. In the All Range section, I had no problem whatsoever with wanting to reach 999 points, and I spent well over an hour's worth doing it! After I reached it, though, I didn't wanna stop. I became completely engrossed in just downing fighter after fighter as quickly and efficiently as I possibly could. With an utterly blank look on my mug, I asked myself "Why am I STILL doing this?" I mean, at the time, I had troubles understanding just what it was about that section that kept me from quitting, and I still haven't quite figured it out, yet! One thing I figured though, was that if what is supposed to be just a tutorial section can do this to me for such a long time, then perhaps there's an opportunity here that could have been exploited to tremendous effect! Technically, it was, I know that. Remember Time Trial mode from Star Fox 64? That little multiplayer mode where enemies pop up, and you get the most kills within a set time limit to win? There was so much they could've done with it! In fact, an entire selection on the main menu could be dedicated to it! __________________________ Let it be called SURVIVE. 1st Option: Endless. See how long you can survive against a never-ending onslaught of enemy fighters with no breaks and rare item spawning! Choose your stage and get to shootin'! 2nd Option: Timed. How many fighters can you down within the set time limit? Items will be laid around the stage for you to determine if collecting them is worth your precious seconds. Final Option: Endless On-Rails: Remember that one ending back in the original Star Fox? Now imagine if that was a mode! The stage will be randomly chosen this time. Just try to survive as long as you can! __________________________ Just these alone might have increased the fun, longevity, and replayability on any traditional Star Fox game by the millions because of how long you get to spend flying and shootin'! To be honest, I rather surprised myself that I didn't come up with this since becoming a dedicated fan since about 2013, or so. An idea that so easliy could have been done in 1997 or 2005 (Assault), that it boggled my mind how Nintendo or its developers couldn't come up with this right from the get-go. Not even for Star Fox Zero!? But of course, that's just what I think. I'd love to hear what you guys think of this idea. Is this something that really could and/or should have been done so long ago? And of course, I am constantly looking for critique on my work. Is it neat? Does it convey nicely enough? Please tell me so! Thank you so much!
