YouTube user Lazydragon tried out the recent Gecko code that makes Krystal playable in Star Fox Adventures. He had an... interesting experience.
Multiple-time world champion Smash player, and Star Fox fan, ZeRo, published a video playing the development version of Super Smash Flash 2, which has a playable Krystal character. The Krystal "DLC" is not yet available to the general public, so videos like these, where testers and prominent Smash players are given access to the development version, represent the only footage we have for right now. ZeRo takes the flak of liking Krystal (a long-time advocate of Krystal as a playable character in Ultimate), and explores how Krystal plays. He does well, but has a lot of trouble with Simon Belmont.
In celebration of the Krystal Archive's 14th Anniversary, this is another year-in-review podcast. I quickly go over all the posts of the previous year, followed by a look back at the plans I made for 2019, how well we achieved them (or not), and what is planned for the future.
Thanks for listening!
It's my birthday!
The Krystal Archive has been online for 14 whole years! Yep. 14. Kind of an awkward year to celebrate. Not a cool unlucky number like 13 or a big round number like 15. Oh well, there's always next year.
In 2019, a lot of posts and Krystal stuff happened. WAY too much to cover here. I plan to record a year-in-review podcast episode tonight and hopefully release it too. It's been a while since I did one of these, so it will be a bit rough.
One thing I've been exploring is converting the site from Wordpress to a statically built site. It should make the site much faster and provide opportunities to make things more efficient. Plus, it'll make it quicker to make big project changes like the fanart section. There are some questions to solve about comments and such, however.
Hey! It's 2020! Happy New Year!
2019 was a fantastic year for the site! I want to keep that going. I owe you guys a podcast (which is now basically a yearly podcast), so that's coming soon. Other than that, I'm doing my best to bring you new stories every day. I have some plans for the site as well that will hopefully reintegrate all the old content with the new and modernize all the things!
Anyway, have a great New Year and stay safe out there. I have more to talk about soon.
It's another MMD by ShattenKitsune666! This one is still a work in progress. She posted it unlisted, but gave me permission to post it. The song is Diamond Sky by Elliot Berger.
Here's something you don't see every day. Moonllita, a Krystal cosplayer from earlier this year, has created a tutorial showing how she created her costume. She goes through the research, design, and creation of the armor, staff, jewelry, bodysuit, ears, and tail.
This was posted back in October, but I had missed it! I only noticed because of Ayano's repost.
Looks like Arlo took advantage of the ongoing sales of Starlink by purchasing at least 19 copies of the Nintendo Switch Star Fox starter pack. He made a video about it, which is about the extent of his ideas for what in the world to do with 19 copies of Starlink. He bought these for $10 each. If you want to get in on the deal, the game has been further reduced to an insane $6 each at Best Buy.
Kinda hilarious, kinda creepy. Shiponda created a quick ASMR video featuring Krystal making weird ASMR noises and whispering "This ASMR is especially for you..." in what appears to be Russian. Then she lights a cigarette. This is using a relatively uncommon Krystal model originally made for the unreleased Star Fox: Paths of Fate mod, which is a whole other post I need to make. The steam version of the model is here.
Normally, I wouldn't post this sort of thing, but it seems to be a completely harmless joke. Also, Nintendo did it first.
As the year winds down, it's time to celebrate the holiday of giving and spending time with family. I hope your Christmas celebrations are safe, fun, and wholesome. Thank you all for a wonderful year and a lot of interesting developments. I will continue posting through the New Year, no plans to stop right now. May the Krystmas spirit be in all of you!
