Title: Random Crap to Waste Time
Post by: Flaming Cobra on December 21, 2010, 03:09:49 PM
This thread is all about random Star Fox related crap to waste time.

To start off, let's see how many variations of "Can't let you do that, Star Fox" we can think of.

I've already seen some variations, including

"Can't let you brew that, Star Bucks"
"Can't let you do that, Red Sox"
"Can't let you eat that, Goldilocks", and
"Can't let you browse that, FireFox"

I came up with "Can't let you build that, Megabloks"
"Can't let you smoke that, crackpot"
"Can't let you screw that, StarF**ks"
"Can't let you store that, cardboard box"
"Can't let you boot that, Macintosh", and
"Can't let you write that, Alexandre Dumas"

Yes, I know this is lame. :doubtful: But just go with it. We're trying to waste time.

Something else random: It's every odd that the Lylat System has so many terrestrial planets, but no gas giants.

And It's really weird how in Star Fox 64, there were mountains before you go into Corneria City, and they're gone in Star Fox Assault. In fact, in Star Fox Assault, Corneria City was a square island in the middle of the ocean and it's CLEARLY NOT in SF64. I think Namco f'd up.

I always found that very weird...
the island also appears to be made completely of Metal or something...
So is Corneria like a Giant Aircraft Carrier? wtf!

Be honest, now. We have wii games for Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Kirby now. The only two series' left are Star Fox and F-Zero.

Honestly, which game do you think we'll get first? Star Fox Wii, or F-Zero Wii?

In my opinion, Nintendo has given up on the Star Fox series because the story line is fucked up so bad. Between the two, we'll get F-Zero Wii and Star Fox Wii will never happen. Mostly because F-Zero really has no storyline so it can't be fucked up. Frankly though, I think the chances of another F-Zero game are very slim.

I thought Assault was pretty decent, really. I'm still not sure why people say it was "horrible"
Is it just that it wasn't as good as 64? Because that was one game. If you had a whole series like Zelda, then you would have a good frame of reference, but you don't.

>end rant

So, about Corneria City. Are you all sure that was the same Corneria City in both games, or could they have been two distinct cities?

Yeah, it's possible that Corneria City in Lylat Wars was so badly damaged that they moved it to it's location in Assault and turned the previous City into a permanent memorial.

The other thing that I like to imagine, is that the Lylat Wars one is sort of the military and industrial part of the city, wheres the one in Assault is more the populous part...

And Assault wasn't really bad, except the voice acting that was really bad and the fact that there wasn't any where NEAR enough pure flying in the game.

I made my point somewhere a while ago but let's refresh it:
- Monstruous design. I almost offered back my lunch when I first saw Fox in the trailer.
- Pityful voice acting. At no point it can compete with SF64's one.
- Stupid gameplay, with 534854 missions on foot and 2 or 3 in the air.
- Short and boring storyboard. Beside it is not even multiple choice, which was a first (desevolution) in the series, save for Adventure which is not a proper StarFox game.
- The multi was good, but the fact that few people only like starfox makes it hard to find anyone to play with. Even more difficult to find people who are not appalled by the graphics.

The way I see it, Rare did a damn good job with what they did, but the story just wasn't fitting for a Star Fox game. Everything about Star Fox Adventures was great, all the way from the graphics to the gameplay, except for the story. But you can't blame them, since it wasn't supposed to be a Star Fox game to begin with.

As for Namco, let's just say "it's the thought that counts", and leave it at that.

No, Adventures was actually not even a good game. It was a Zelda-like except it was worst.
You get to 100% only by ending the story, there's no side-quest, furthermore the story only lasts about 20 hours.

And then? NOTHING.

Good graphics, I'll agree. But that's all. Nothing more. NOTHING.

Beside, the story isn't even good. It's a plothole hive, and the only thing you do is roaming the planet one way and another, going back on your steps 80% of the time. The battles are awfully repetitives due to a LAME moveset. The dungeons are not even a challenge, except when it lays impossible secrets on your path. (like the color of fires, wtf?)

And what? Thats it. You're only rewarded with Fox dumping in his pants in the end. It also awfully puts an end to Andross's return, when they could have invented something way better, and introduces RAINBOWS magic to a SF universe.

Tell me ONE good thing about it. Graphics and music doesn't count. Graphics will be outdated one day or another (if they arn't already) and the game will have nothing left for itself.

*Sigh* I meant as far as timeline goes. Because technically SF64 3DS is the same as SF64. Just....... prettier. that's all.

For some reason, I have a feeling that if Nintendo makes another Star Fox game (After SF64 3DS), it will either
1) Be a prequel to SF64, featuring the adventures of James, Peppy, and Pigma.
2) Be a spin off of Command, following the adventures of Marcus and the rest of his gay team, or
3) Be a near complete reboot, and retcon everything that happened after SF64.

I'm sorry, but I just don't see a game featuring Fox McCloud and his team taking place after Command.

On a side note, fox's_feather, you're from France, you'll know. Isn't ITER under construction now?

I was trolling you with that statement. :)

Also, I hate Adventures, I don't like Assault, but I like Command, although I don't consider it cannon either, but as a spin-off it's pretty good.

On the side note, I didn't know a thing about ITER, but I just checked what it was, and yes it is under construction and should be ended by the 2020'.

i think all of us can agree that starfox 64 was the best one in the series, but the thing that sets it apart is because it raised the bar to a level that nintendo couldn't have hoped to ever achieve again because it took such a huge turn with adventures. what i would like to see is nintendo re-booting the series and officially announcing such with the release of SF64 3D. All the games after 64 had their downfalls too, adventures was too far away from it's predecessor, Assault's story line was totally botched even though it had such a good potential, and command had multiple endings which totally screwed up the chance for a sequel. in my honest opinion the reason that the series has fallen so far so fast, is because the big N themselves haven't put any effort into reviving it, but shirking the task off on third party developers. something that they never should have even thought of in the first place. thankfully with SF64 3D i'm pretty sure that it's being developed by the big N and not some third party company looking for a quick buck.

They do a great job of modernizing old game genres too. Like how in DKCR if you hit a wall going real fast you'll bounce off.

A while ago didn't somebody say that some group had expressed interest in making a Star Fox game? I might be thinking of the upcoming 3DS. That was a REALLY long time ago, I think, that I heard that.

Eeeehhhhhhhhhhhhh......... I don't think Star Fox or F-Zero are really core games anymore.

I mean just think about it. Mario, Zelda, Kirby, and Metroid were there from the very beginning. More people like them, more people care about them. So Nintendo puts more time and money into those series'. Games with big fanbase = big money.

Star Fox and F-Zero came later, with the super famicom. Since they weren't there from the very beginning, fewer people know/care about them, so nintendo doesn't care about them as much. It's all about the size of the fanbase, and how much money you can make.

And a new Madden and a new assassin's creed is coming out for 3DS, as well as TWO resident evils. And a Dead or Alive. And a new ghost recon and a splinter cell. And super street fighter IV is coming out in 3D.

You know what? That's way too many XBox titles on my nintendo system. :mad:


Sorry if I offended anyone here, but most of the people I personally know who like those games are complete douchebags.

"No more NiGHTS games for nintendo, playstation, or xbox"
"No more Crazy Taxi games for nintendo, playstation, or xbox"
and so on and so forth

and then about 3 years later they announce a console based off RingWide arcade hardware.

But that day will never EVER come. Because sega makes more money as a third party making piece of shit games now than they ever did.

I highly highly doubt it, but since Volition doesn't do FreeSpace anymore, Bungie is the only company that could make it right. But I still say it will never happen.

On an Interplay related note, I'm thinking about getting Descent 1.


On a Star Fox related note, I hope to God that Star Wolf never helps Star Fox again.

I've also been doing some more SF related thinking. It has come to my attention that an Assault/Command sequel could never work, and the only way the series could progress is if everything after SF64 was retconned. It has also come to my attention that there will NEVER be a Star Fox game for Wii, ever.

I have also realized that Command COULD be right about Solar being a planet. Because in SF64, rocks come out of Solar, and there is no way possible a rock could come out of a star. However, it is equally likely that Solar is a star and that those rocks were just a gameplay mechanic so you could get rings to refill your life on that level.

I came up with a new game mode for SOL. It's called Endless mode. It's a one player mode. Basically you fight unlimited waves of enemies. You get like one silver ring or so after every wave. The waves get increasingly harder. It goes on until you die. Then you send your score to the leaderboards.

Endless? Extremely difficult.
You could set up something like 100 or so waves with some clever .txt editing though.

Endless? Is that even possible?
Title: Random Crap to Waste Time
Post by: Brockenstein on February 03, 2011, 04:20:52 PM
It couldn't be completely endless if you increase the difficulty each wave. Reason: The final level would be you can not dodge their fire because they are that accurate.

I could see endless if you increase the lvl to a certain point and then have it repeat that wave until you die. Not sure if you could do that in the code but in theory that is what you would do.

Another thing to increase difficulty would be if the enemies drop health or powerups that the harder the level the less they would drop anything.

How exactly does the halo reach firefight mode work exactly? Functionally, I mean, not "they keep coming and getting harder".

In FS, even just repeating the same high tier wave would still be limited by the repeat count to something like 99999 times. That could work.
Title: Random Crap to Waste Time
Post by: Brockenstein on February 04, 2011, 04:50:27 AM
I would be impressed if someone made it through all 99999 waves if after wave 100 all health drops stopped dropping. Then again... if more than one person could do this I would realized that the mode is a fail and the game is TOO EASY!

I was top of my class in Geometry Honors and Pre-Calculus but I still can't figure this out?

How many cubic feet of steel would the cornerian space administration need to build a giant hollow cylinder 20 miles long and 5 miles in diameter, with walls a thickness of let's say...... 15 feet? But the catch is, half of the lateral area of the cylinder is glass. That's what gets stumps me. I don't know how to calculate it.

The E, I know you can calculate this. But I'm sure you don't care.

Anyone who can help me with this will win 5 internets.

Wait... what do you mean by "half of the lateral area" is glass? Is part of the outer wall of the cylinder glass and the inside metal? Or is half of the whole wall glass? How thick is the glass?
Title: Random Crap to Waste Time
Post by: Flaming Cobra on March 16, 2011, 05:13:18 PM
Ok. The lateral area of the cyllinder is divided into six equal area strips. Half of these are windows; they are glass. Half are "land" on the inside and metal on the outside.

Please show your work.

outside diameter of cylinder = 26400 ft (1 mile = 5280 ft)
outside radius of cylinder = 13200 ft (26400 / 2)
height of cylinder = 105600 ft
inside diameter of cylinder = 26370 ft (26400 - 15*2)
inside radius of cylinder = 13185 ft

Volume calculation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cylinder_%28geometry%29
outside volume of cylinder = 57804451752960 ft^3 (3.14159*13200^2*105600)
inside volume of cylinder = 57673152643154.4 ft^3 (3.14159*13185^2*105600)
total volume of walls of cylinder = 131299109805.6 ft^3 (57804451752960-57673152643154.4)

Since half of the cylinder is glass and not metal, the volume of metal needed is 65649554902.8 ft^3 (131299109805.6 / 2)
That's roughly 0.445995029216 cubic miles of steel.

Now, if only the outside of half the cylinder (lateral area) is glass, then we need to know exactly how thick around the actual metal walls in the glass area is. My final figure only works if the glass parts extend all the way from the outer wall to the inner wall.

Title: Corneria's Rotation and Atmosphere
Post by: Flaming Cobra on July 17, 2011, 05:31:39 PM
Well if we go by this picture from the SF1 game
(http://images.wikia.com/starfox/images/b/bf/CorneriaSF1.png)

Corneria has very long bar clouds which looks kind of like Jupiter. But it also looks kind of like a terraformed Venus, assuming it's rotation hasn't been sped up.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b9/TerraformedVenus.jpg/250px-TerraformedVenus.jpg)

But SF64's Corneria looks like this:
(http://images.wikia.com/starfox/images/2/28/Corneria.jpg)

Which is really thick like Titan's. And not whispy.

So which do you guys think is more likely? A super-rotating atmosphere (and slowly rotating planet itself) or a super thick atmosphere?

No, actually it was for my space colonization wiki. I wanted to know how much resources of each kind would be required to construct an O'Neill colony. I'm a space settlement advocate, and I think that's what I want to do with my life. I feel like it's my obligation society.

I either want to do that, game design, or computer/software engineering. Gaming has been my life passion, so I don't know if I want to turn it into a J-O-B. I'm not great with hardware. And as for space, I don't know if I want to go into a declining field. I want to at least be able to be financially secure. :\

Also, I have yet to put those values on the wiki.
Me and this british dude are working jointly on the wiki.

It will have to take place on sauria and scarabs will be used instead of gold pieces. Also you can either play as a furry, a sharpclaw, or another dinosaur tribe. and you start out with...........


THE QUARTERSTAFF *gasp*

and deep into the game you can get krystal's staff......

and there are many other weapons......... like blasters and machine guns......... but they're EXPENSIVE and cost................ CREDITS! another form of currency. but you can only get them by doing missions for the cornerian army!! *gasp*

Surely not every creature on Corneria is sentient? They probably just eat the ones that are too dumb to not have a developed society.
Also, just because you don't see farms from orbit, or when flying through Corneria City, doesn't mean they don't exist. You don't see a whole lot of farms in Los Angeles or New York.
