    Star Fox is so foxy!

    Lol just wanted to share this trailer it's funny. I can't wait for the new Star Fox game. I played the N64 game a bazillion times for an awesome ride and that epic music at the end.
  2. In a year where we've already seen one big Nintendo game delayed (The Legend of Zelda for Wii U), the big N has unfortunately delayed another highly anticipated title -- Star Fox Zero. Shigeru Miyamoto took to Facebook to explain the reasons for the delay, citing the fact that the team needed more time to polish each level, perfect tone of cutscenes, and delve into making the game a better two-screen experience. He also acknowledges that though the game could technically be ready for a Holiday release, the delay will allow for polishing that will ultimately make it a much better game. The good news is that the game won't be delayed for too long. Nintendo is aiming to release Star Fox Zero in Q1 2016. Source: Facebook Are you disappointed that Star Fox Zero has been delayed?

    E3 2015 Hands-On: Star Fox Zero

    Perfecting my high scores on Star Fox 64 was one of my favorite parts of being a kid. It“s one of the few hobbies I still partake in, and often, as an adult. I wanted to love every game that came after, whether we“re talking Star Fox Adventures, Assault, or Command. But nothing beats the game I grew up with. When Nintendo announced Star Fox Zero, my eyes lit up. It definitely seemed to embrace the fact that it was made with Star Fox 64 in mind wholeheartedly. And it borrows more than one concept from the fan favorite, too. But even though Miyamoto“s wording during the Digital Event may have been confusing, it“s definitely not a remake of the Nintendo 64 classic. It differs fundamentally in its sense of design (more on that in a second), and if it does match 64's place in the proverbial canon, it“s definitely taken some liberties with that game“s plot. The demo was a sizable chunk that had three phases. Phase one is the on-rails Star Fox action we all know and love. When Slippy had an enemy on his tail, I thought, “Okay, maybe this is a remake.” But then Falco — instead of being ambushed — suggested we take the back way to reach the tower where General Pepper needed to be protected. That definitely didn“t happen when I was a kid. After that, the game switched to All Range Mode and I was tasked with defeating ten enemies, then stopping a handful more on the ground from reaching the tower. After completing that phase, a boss attacked me. The boss could be defeated in one of two ways: either blast apart all four of its major components (this looked very satisfying, by the way), or fly inside the boss after destroying one of its components, then using your Walker mode to shoot the boss from inside the core. Here“s the thing about that, before I even go in-depth. One way, which I saw someone in front of me do, featured the words 'Mission Complete.' The other, core-destroying one, featured the words 'Mission Accomplished.' As fans of Star Fox 64 know, that word choice is most definitely indicative of branching paths, in terms of new levels that can be accessed each time you play the game. The game controls like a dream... mostly. You control the Arwing itself with the left control stick on the Gamepad. And the right control stick does things like brake (pull it back), boost (pull it forwards), and barrel roll (press either direction twice). Delegating those actions to the second stick on the Gamepad feels natural, and is a humongous improvement over any Star Fox air combat I“ve played lately. Laser-fire uses the triggers. You“ll feel super comfortable playing, I can guarantee that. If you press the A button, you can switch to the Walker. It“s kind of reminiscent of Landmaster controls if you do it on rails, insofar as you can hover upwards to shoot enemies that are hard to reach from the ground. In All Range Mode, you can move freely with it. It was fun to experiment with both forms of travel in all range mode, particularly when I was protecting the tower from these enemies that stuck to the ground. Sometimes it was easier to pick them off from the air, other times it felt beneficial to hit the ground as the Walker first, then hover slightly above them and snipe them with a lock-on shot. Just a few cautionary notes. One: Since the Gamepad is heavily involved for precise shooting (some enemies or parts of enemies are tiny and require precision), there is no map in All Range Mode... at least in the demo. I foresee things becoming slightly problematic if you“re trying to protect something or someone from enemies, and you have no clue where they are. I saw more than one person fail the “Protect General Pepper” phase because they genuinely couldn“t tell where an enemy was. The other grievance: gyroscopic controls sometimes messed me up. The woman demoing the game could tell this wasn“t my first rodeo. When the Arwing would face the opposite direction I wanted it to, or get all screwed up directions-wise, she told me I could correct the gyro on the Gamepad by pushing in the left stick. The fact that gyro needs to be consistently calibrated or corrected could lead to gameplay flaws if it“s not fine-tuned by the time the final game releases. Hopefully it will be though. It has everything you want, as a Star Fox diehard. The hit screen is exactly like the Nintendo 64 game, so I can only assume there will be medals. Some characters say the same lines as they did in that game. In terms of the game“s identity, I am wildly confused and need to see and hear more beyond Miyamoto“s words that it“s “not quite the fifth game in the series, and not quite a remake of Star Fox 64”. But in terms of gameplay, visuals, music and more... it“s everything you“ve wanted Star Fox to be since the 64 days. It could use some fixing up, but I guarantee it“s going to be one of those must-own titles this holiday. You can check here to see even more about the game.
  4. This E3 has brought a number of surprises already, but if yesterday's bombshell announcements weren't enough, it was revealed today that Platinum is working on at least four different games at the moment. First is the Xbox One exclusive, Scalebound, which was previously announced at Microsoft's E3 2014 Press Conference, followed by Activision's recently announced Transformers: Devastation. But if that isn't enough Platinum action for you, it was revealed today during Square Enix's E3 press conference that they're working on a new Nier game. Finally, it was revealed by Nintendo today that they are also involved with the development of Star Fox Zero. With these four games in development, Platinum Games is sure to be a busy bee for the near future, but don't worry, you'll be seeing at least two of the games very soon. Transformers: Devastation is set for release during the Fall, and Star Fox Zero is slated to launch this holiday season.

  6. The holiday known as Easter was originally created to commemorate the famous Jesus Christ coming back from the dead (not as a zombie, of course). Then people just sorta morphed it into a day where we worship some giant, candy-addicted rabbit who hides eggs for children to find (I don“t trust the guy, I tell ya). Well okay, so we don“t actually worship the thing (that“d just be silly), but we do treat him as a kind of animal version of Santa Claus – the other guy who stole a holiday from poor Jesus. You know what also tends to have animal characters stealing the spotlight from humans every now and again? Why, the world of gaming, of course! Plenty of games have starred some pretty heroic animals, with some more heroic than others. So to celebrate that Easter Bunny“s big day, let“s countdown what I think are the top 10 most heroic video game animals. What? You don“t feel like it? Well that“s too bad, because I“m gonna do it anyway. #10: Crash Bandicoot - Crash Bandicoot Series - Disregarding the fact that most people don“t know what the hell a bandicoot even is, Crash Bandicoot is the most heroic one there is (and also the only bandicoot featured in any game ever). Genetically altered by the mad Doctor Neo Cortex, this wily bandicoot never hesitates to oppose the evil scientist who once experimented on him and foil his plans for world domination. And while he hasn“t done a whole lot of world-saving lately, he“s still a heroic enough animal to make it on this list. #9: Klonoa - Klonoa Series - Next up on our animalistic countdown is this rabbit…cat…dog thing that goes by the name Klonoa. Actually, his place in the animal kingdom was never officially established, now that I think about it… Let“s just call him a "cabbit" for now. Anyway, featured in the series that shares his name, Klonoa is a Dream Traveler, which is exactly what it sounds like – someone who travels to different dream worlds. As a Dream Traveler, this little cabbit is fated to traverse many different endangered dreams and save them. And even though he doesn“t really have a choice in the matter (thus is fate), the awesome role Klonoa is given makes him a pretty heroic animal in my book. #8: Spyro the Dragon - Spyro Series - Without a doubt, dragons are the coolest animals of all time. Of course, they don“t actually exist unless you count posers like komodo dragons, but they most certainly exist in video games so we“re counting them in this list. One such dragon is the one and only Spyro, who you may know from such series as the one sharing his name and its spin-off known as Skylanders. And whether he“s on a quest to save the Dragon Realms or saving Skylands with his fellow Skylanders, this dragon“s heroic deeds land him a spot in this thing you“re reading. #7: Sly Cooper - Sly Cooper Series - There“s no honor among thieves. Well, unless you“re Sly Cooper of course, in which case you“ve got plenty of the stuff. Enough to be given a spot on this list, anyway, which is really all you need in the end (it“s actually not, so take my word with a grain of salt). Whether he“s chasing down his father“s murderer while retrieving his family“s stolen legacy or thieving with his ancestors through time, this raccoon is as cool as he is heroic. And while his occupation might make you grimace at my calling him a hero, the fact that he only steals from enemy gangs, corrupt governments, and crime syndicates rather than the innocent makes Sly Cooper about as heroic as the infamous anthropomorphic thief known as Robin Hood. #6: Amaterasu - ÅŒkami Series - While technically more of a sun goddess than an actual wolf, Amaterasu“s wolf form makes her more than eligible for this list. Making her debut in the incredibly artsy ÅŒkami, this lovely canine is probably Capcom“s most recognizable animal hero. Amaterasu even features alongside other Capcom favs in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. Whether scrubbing a curse from the world or facing off against comic book characters, one thing“s for certain – Amaterasu is one of gaming“s coolest animal heroes, even if she“s actually a goddess in disguise. #5: Fox McCloud - Star Fox Series - Doin“ barrel rolls since before it was cool, Fox McCloud is one of gaming“s most famous animals. Of course, being one of Nintendo“s big IPs pretty much guarantees him such fame, but he has a pretty good amount of heroism to back himself up. Not only does he tend to save worlds, but he has been responsible for saving the whole Lylat System time and time again from such threats as the well-known evil scientist Andross, whether he takes the form of a big polygonal face, a giant head-with-hands, or a friggin“ brain. It takes a special kind of hero to take on a giant brain. #4: Banjo & Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie Series - What“s this? Two characters sharing one spot on this countdown? The nerve! But because this bear and bird are always sharing the same adventures and are rarely seen apart from each other (aw, how sweet…if a bit weird), I“d say it“s fair. And also shut up, it“s my list and I can do what I want. Anyway, as far as heroes go, Banjo and Kazooie are a pretty goofy pair, but a fantastic one nonetheless. At least, their games are pretty awesome. And no matter how hard the witch/skeleton/robot Gruntilda tries to wreak havoc, this bear and bird pair will always be there to stop her. #3: Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong Series - Nintendo“s flagship character, Mario, owes a lot to the mighty ape known as Donkey Kong, as he wouldn“t have really been anything if he weren“t saving his girlfriend from the beast back in the day. However, the girlfriend-stealin“ gorilla we knew back then isn“t the DK we“re throwing on our countdown. No, that one has since grown up to be known as Cranky Kong, while Donkey Kong Jr. has grown up to become the Donkey Kong we know today. Making his debut in Donkey Kong Jr., where he saved his dad from the suddenly-evil-for-some-reason Mario, Donkey Kong went on to star in a freaking awesome series of croc-bashing, tiki-torching platformers that prove just how much he deserves to be in a list like this. #2: Yoshi - Super Mario Bros. Series - Going back even further in Mario“s lifetime, if it weren“t for the courageous dinosaur we all know and love named Yoshi, Mushroom Kingdom“s savior wouldn“t have even gotten past infancy. This heroic dino was introduced in Super Mario World, but didn“t get the chance to truly play hero until its sequel, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi“s Island; although technically he got a chance to play hero long before Mario did. Yoshi has starred in several other games since then, such as Yoshi“s Story and the upcoming Wii U title Yarn Yoshi, and with all those adventures under his belt (or saddle; whatever that shell-thing is), Yoshi is one of gaming“s most iconic animal heroes. #1: Sonic the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog Series - But gaming“s most iconic animal hero is probably our speedy pal Sonic the Hedgehog. Entering the gaming world (at the speed of sound) as Sega“s answer to Nintendo“s mascot Mario, Sonic has been one of the most famous video game heroes to come out of the animal kingdom. Sure, he“s had a few missteps, but that never stopped his momentum in the race to be #1 on our countdown (the race none of these characters knew about). With so many fantastic titles on his résumé, and hopefully some more to come in the future, Sonic earns the title of the most heroic video game animal. If you were real, Sonic, I“d give you an award of some kind. Do you agree with these choices? What heroic video game animals would you have placed on the list?

  8. http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/05/19/rumor-star-fox-and-metroid-teaming-up-on-wii-u Basically they say that Retro Studios, the makers of the Metroid Prime series and Donkey Kong Country Returns, are working on a crossover game for the Wii U. The two game franchises that they are combining are Star Fox and Metroid. The working title is "Star Fox - Metroid Fusion Saga." You can read the article if you want the rumored plot info. I'm sure the hardcore fans will be up in arms over this, but I think it sounds like a good idea. I'm not the biggest Nintendo fan, but I like these two franchises and Retro is a very talented developer. Since crossovers are all the rage these days I think this rumor isn't all that far-fetched. I just hope they can combine the two worlds and game play styles into something coherent.
