Random Crap to Waste Time
« 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!

No, it's just that StarFox Assault is horrible, nothing much to add to this point.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

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.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

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.

Yeah but command was worse than Assault. Command shouldn't even be a Star Fox game.

Can't let you rule that, Andross.

This thread actually had potential. Way to screw it up.
