Peppy Hare had a little Easter Egg in the latest Star Fox Zero trailer.
Your becoming more like your father
Interesting I never would have guessed peppy kepted a photo of James, pigma and him.
It’s not Pigma, it’s Pepper.
Speaking of Pigma though, it looks like the photo has a corner ripped off…
Right where Pigma might have stood. Spooky.
The top right half is where it’s stuck under the paneling to hold it in (that’s what pilots used to do with photos of their loved ones in airplanes). However, the bottom right of the photo might actually be ripped from the looks of it.
Hi there I have a question for you and all Star Fox fans. What kind of game mechanic you wished the Star Fox series had? Example (more open world, more strategic gameplay) what are your thoughts?
I personally loved the idea of a more open world star fox game, adventures and assault allowed for a great amount of roaming. I’d also like to think adventures was the best the series had to offer, with such and open world and strong character plots. A game similar to adventures, but more star fox oriented, would be the kind of game I would like to see. Also, id be ok with a slightly more mature game, while on not saying sex-n-stuff, maybe more evil and sinister enemys who don’t sound like role playing 5 year olds :P, maybe some blood and violence (if lasers leave much blood). Just want a game that takes it self seriously with annd open world. Now I sound like I’m talking about Bethesda games XD star fox but with a skyrim like twist to it lol wouldn’t that be something.
Sorry for taking the whole page XD.
Actually, come to think of it, I think star fox could be implemented in all sorts of different game styles. An RPG like final fantasy, a strategy story driven game like fire emblem 0_0. Maybe a first person online shooter like the call of duty’s XD ok maybe that’s to far lol… But I’d play a star fox fps against friends ;). Anything different, I don’t know how long star fox can run on rail shooters :/ they where fun and new back then, but they need to advance.
I too agree with you about Star Fox advancing from rail shooters and to have more open world features. What about character creation? Like giving you the option to make your own character, would that make it interesting? Or would that take away the enjoyment?
I was gonna talk about that, but something in the back of my head says it would be a controversial topic. I think it would be a great idea ^_^. If they had preset star fox characters and then a customization option, I could work with that. The way it works and options of customization would probably very, depending on what kind of star fox game we were talking about. Also, I can’t stop thinking of that star fox fps idea. Like star wars battlefront style XD. You could have a custom character or cornerian soldiers vs another team battlefield style. Also, occasionally a player would get the option to playa special character from say, team star fox or star wolf. I remember playing a Lord of the Rings game like that. What would you like and what are your thoughts LucasJG1994. And anyone else :P Mr.krystal?
I get your point. We’ve been playing as Fox McCloud for so long and we don’t want that to change. In fact when I first played Star Fox adventures, I feel like they introduced Krystal a bit dangerously. I mean, I saw Fox on the cover thinking i’ll be playing him straight away when Krystal appeared and it surprised me. It was after playing the game she became my most favorite (including Fox) Character. What I would like to see is having the option to command your teammates, like the Star Wars Commando.
Well, I am highly biased in my love for star fox adventures, but I can not use it fairly as an argument for much. It was my first video gam every! It was when I turned 2, I was very social but couldn’t read much. I didn’t have my own opinions on the world yet. My parents unboxed and setup the new game cube and game for me. I didn’t know what was going on when it started. I believe my family got it for me because, being two, it looked like a game with fun animal character. I do remember my grandparents being there, watching when I first turned it on. Seeing Krystal my first time, it was what my mind told me a game must be. So star fox adventures was what gave me my thoughts on gaming. Although my family members watching me play the start of the game had some funny reactions I can remember about krystals look and outfit XD…. Hmmm I strayed of topic, what was I gonna talk about again lol…
Shit hit send early :P. Back to the actual topic XD. While I think a game more about other characters fighting against each other, and custom characters, I feel it wouldn’t be taken well by the community unless the main characters were implemented a bit. Either way, a game with customizable characters would be a great way to change up the formula for the star fox games. There is especially a need for change in gameplay. We don’t really need anymore of the rail shooter genre. What game play style would you like to see get the star fox treatment. ^_^ I like this topic, even if it is only talking about wants and it probably wont happen, we can hope and enjoy the thought :P
Hey! I played Star Fox 64 when I was 3 years old and boy! When I saw Andross I screamed as loud as I could. I understand how you feel about Star Fox adventures and looking back having Krystal there at the beginning was actually a good idea to begin with, sorry if I touched a nerve. I played Star Fox adventures when I was 13 Years old and Loved it more than the prequel. The type of play style for Star Fox? That’s a hard one but a fps wouldn’t be a bad idea at all. Hey! what if they made a racing game? lol ^_^
Touched a nerve? Don’t eleven know what you’re talking about XD. Onto the next part. A racing game. I have a hatred for those real car games. By that I mean real life car games. I also have a hatred of the randomness of Mario kart (although i did like double dash :P) but I do like one racing game. After star fox adventures, I got 4 other games while I was 2. My third game was F-zero gx on the game cube. O_O such a stressful game to play :D but I loved it. Still play it today and can’t beat the cursed diamond prix on master difficulty, curse you f-zeros rainbow road!!!. Of course I had to play the little wyvern with James McCloud as the pilot. I can’t say that id like a star fox racing though unless it was like f-zero gx’s difficulty and speed. Even at that though, I’m not sure the style of the star fox games theme would work well in a racing game >.< sorry. Hmmm I wish I could have my phone buzz everytime there's a new post/comment on the Krystal archive. I want to keep talking, but I might miss you comments D=
The racing was a joke. :P lol. But my real play style for Star Fox would be a strategy style, either on foot or in the air, letting you take control of the battle.
Like Fire Emblem style or what :P give me an example. O personally am hooked on that battlefield or star wars battlefront style of game for the series.
No not Fire Emblem, more like a fps or 3rd person shooter but you have the option to command your teammates. For example calling air support or telling your wing man to target enemies while having backup from behind. Something like a real-time strategy with shooter mechanics.
Sounds cool, but I can’t get the mental image. Any games similar to tour idea so I could YouTube it.
Check out Star Wars Commando. You command your teammates to take cover and snipe for you or man turrets, open doors and place bombs.
So when we were talking about a game with character customization for online, would it be small customization like taking fox and adding miscellaneous items and change colors and styles. Or are we talking about some serious in depth character creation, cause that would be amazing. Don’t know what we would use them for though. Maybe a game like assault online… But better of course XD
With Character creations i meant actually giving you the option to choose what species, what gender, height and size. So for example you created a human character, you play as him or her along side Fox or other Star Fox characters kind of like Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
Not into the dragon ball thing, but that idea is genius. I was trying to think of how the single player game would work with the players own character while progressing the star fox story. Instead of being fox, playing along side the team would be a great idea! As long as the game has a good story to it, id totally play a game like that… Well after I spend a hour in the character creation XD
Ok you like it that’s great! You see i’m studying for game designing right now and trying to get some feed back on what people are looking for in a Star Fox game. Sure it’s going to be fan made but if I can bring pleasure to you out there then Thumbs up.
Really! That’s so cool! I’m actually going for an AA right now. Kinda. I’m in a running start program right now, so I’m a junior in high school, but I get to take 2 years of college payed for from my high school. Funny how going foe a game design degree, all my classes in my first 3 semesters have no computer classes >.<. Once I'm a senior though and a sophomore in college I will get some c++ classes in :). Do you got a Skype or something. It would be cool to hang out sometime and see what you do and get some tips ;).
Sure my Skype name is lucasjg19. Tell me your Skype name so I can add you.
Parents are divorced, and I only have my strong laptop on weekdays. Plus my Skype is made via facebook, so my Skype search name is long and complicated, ill just add you Monday about noon ish :P… Cuz this windows phone does nothing O_O
does your phone work with emails? Sorry about your parents.
I couldn’t disagree with you guys more. A game’s quality is almost never determined by what characters (user-created or not) are in the story. What matters is mechanics: is the game actually fun to play? If it implements a gameplay mode, is that mode good or just ok?
If it were up to me, I would be doing mostly what Nintendo is doing right now with Star Fox Zero: a mostly single-player focused game that is an adventure/shooter, where the characters stay inside their armored and maneuverable vehicles. This talk of FPS and open world tells me you don’t want a Star Fox game, you instead want world and character mod for Grand Theft Auto or Skyrim.
As far as adding features/mechanics, here’s what I’d suggest:
Absolutely no need to be sorry, you get a cool new step mom, 2 birthdays and 2 Christmases, and less grumpy parents :P everything works out. And I can’t do email well from my phone, but I do have a mint laptop I take everywhere. So while I could Skype and or email now, I’m to lazy… Nah ill get them out now :P. So what do you want about e-mails?
Change your major to software engineering or computer science. Trust me. You can pick up game design as a minor, but programming skills are going to be essential.
@Mr. Krystal @Happylion18
Thanks Mr. Krystal for that info, it has really helped me to understand what a Star Fox game is.
Happylion18 anything is fine if you want to use email or Skype
I actually cannot tell you all specifically what I’m going for off of memory and my adviser for next semester took of with my paper work which i need to steal back this Monday XD.
@ Mr. Krystal
As of right now my equipment supports 2d game engines. I’ll be moving on to 3d later on. If you were to play a 2d Star Fox game what would you be looking for.
Ok on a laptop now XD so I can keep up with all this stuff =p.
While I agree with you on much of what you said, I feel the star fox franchise could also evolve into something more. I don’t remember much of it, but back when people rented games, i saw a game from the gundam series, and being so young and seeing a cool cover, i had to try it. While star fox does have a all range mode, this game I played had much larger areas to explore with many things going on in more than one location at a time. The fights go on in many layers of space and had a map with sectors. If the star fox franchise was to keep specifically to there flight roots, they should advance onto a more dynamic game play style. But, what I was thinking, was changing to a more Assault style of game. Assault had the right ideas in place and was a very good game for its time. Now I feel we could expand on this type of game, but with a more polished game with deeper story and better over all game play.
If there was to be a 2D star fox game, then I like your ideas for a strategy game =], don’t really know what else you could do for a 2D star fox game though or i’d give you more ideas.
I don’t think Star Fox translates to 2D very well. But if forced, it would probably have to be a side-scrolling shooter like R-Type, or a top-down bullet hell game like Ikaruga. Something that involves precision flying while shooting.
The problem with this line of reasoning is that you’re comparing the perfect Star Fox game in your imagination to the existing Star Fox games (and other games) that exist in the real world. Nintendo already tried to make a Star Fox game that was about more than one thing. It was called Star Fox Assault. Assault had a mediocre flying game and a bad third-person on-foot game. Adventures, on the other hand, was almost exclusively third-person adventure with very little flying segments. Because Rare focused exclusively on one type of gameplay, that gameplay was better. Adventures is a better game than Assault because of this, EVEN THOUGH Adventures wasn’t like a Star Fox game AND the actual flying parts were worse than Assault’s. When companies make a single product that does more than one thing, that product will ALWAYS be worse than a similar product that focused only on one thing. There are limits to what human programmers can do.
Now, Nintendo could go off, spend 5+ years implementing a Skyrim type engine and working out how to fit Star Fox into it. It would cost millions and millions of dollars to create, and the market for it would be… well not very big. After all, the people who want to play Skyrim already have Skyrim. By doing something unique, like say… an arcade-style flight shooter (of which there is zero market competition currently), they can make a more unique and interesting experience than Generic Open-World Game VI: Star Fox. “Now with more fur!”
What a shame XD cause that last idea on the list there “now with more fur” sounds pretty hilarious and fun. But your point on the market makes sense. There’s alot of games like that already, making a similar game would leave it with alot of competition.
I couldn’t disagree with you more, Adventures and Assault to me, proved that Star Fox can go far and beyond then being a simple vehicles gameplay with on-rail and all range mode. I mean, I like to do sight seeing in not just the arwing, but also on foot. It could be like a Ratchet and Clank of Nintendo with a similar, yet different gameplay style.
