Well to escape /v/'s shitty captcha shit I may as well post the topic here. Having Starfox topics on /v/ was hard enough as it is due to the lack of individuals willing to discuss mixed with the fast pace of the board. Add in the captcha nonsense and people are less likely to reply. So I come to this haven.

Anyways to begin, if the next Starfox game was on a console and had visuals like this, would you approve or disapprove? Given that railway shooters are very cinematic (just look at Stafox 64) I'd say hell yeah I approve!

Imagining the possibilities of the settings and environments to fly over with the arwing with such visual detail and I'd cream myself at the prospect.

So what do you think? Feel free to also bring in the idea of gameplay elements.

Expand all images
just let the ace combat people play around with the sci fi setting

Um, right, so...don't get offended by this or anything, but...Are you 14 years old?
...Just a question, sage for offtopic.

What the hell?

Looks too drab and real to me. If there's one thing I do like about Starfox, it's the abundance of wacky color, and these visuals have none of that.

The OP seems very distinctly like a young teenager. Griping for an entire paragraph about captchas, mixed with griping about /v/'s tendency to go off-topic, both point to being new to the internet, meanwhile the over-explanatory nature of the post points to being younger than 16-ish and thinking that people wouldn't read between the lines.
And the "I'd say hell yeah I approve!" also says young-teen to me, though I'm not sure why.

I was just curious.

stop trying to pick up 14yrolds on internet anonymous

A bright cel-shaded Starfox would be great.

Well the captcha is a justified complaint as it affects all of 4chan. Being able to post a simple short reply now is tedious with the addition of that nonsense. Much more annoying is the idea of pulling off picture dumps.

I never complained about /v/ going off topic, but that it's hard to have a Starfox topic there cause there's not too many people to discuss it there, meaning lack of replies in general for such a topic.

The rest of your post is crap frankly. Over explaining is a flaw now? So long as it isn't too lengthy some detail is fine. It hooks people in more than just "post a picture of a game and say 'discuss'". The complaining of saying "Hell yeah!" is just petty and dumb.

So that said, getting back to Starfox, Nintendo has often expressed that Starfox can be more than just a railway shooter. This in turn is the train of thought behind games like Adventures, Assault, and to an extent Commands. While I appreciate their desire to expand on the series, unless they can indeed get it right these types of efforts come off as mediocre IMO.

This. They don't even seem to be in a rush to make a game like that themselves. Maybe there's just a hint of disrespect for it's Western origins? Japanese are weird like that.

From what I heard Nintendo didn't like the Donkey Kong Country games made by Rare because they created inhouse competition for Mario.

File: 128060561338.jpg-(102.09KB, 432x718, 4337578.jpg)
could be cool

Reminds me of SE CG sequences. Particularly the one from FFXIII with the cast first arriving on Gran Pulse.

File: 128062796117.png-(10.54KB, 452x379, pokederp.png)
Well who's fucking fault was that?

Word is that Miyamoto is the one who is rumored to dislike the Donkey Kong Country series. But this year during E3 it was stated by him that he never expressed dislike for the DKC series and that he likes it.

Still whatever the case may be, inhouse competition is a real issue big developers face so I do indeed believe that some of Nintendo's suits and top dogs don't like DKC.

What I've heard about Miyamoto and DKC doesn't even directly relate to the game. Rather, when he was in the process of creating Yoshi's Island, a request was made that he use pre-rendered CG for the graphics like in DKC, due to its popularity. Since he didn't like being put under that restriction, he created a game with the distinctly cartoonish graphics that we know today.

You can infer some dislike for Donkey Kong Country based on that, but really all it tells us is that he had some restrictions put on him that he rebelled against.

So how do y'all feel about Krystal?

File: 128149022066.jpg-(134.83KB, 800x564, IMG_01021.jpg)
I don't mind her, but replacing Peppy with her is a travesty.

Those that herpaderp about furries cite that she's annoying. HAVE YOU HEARD SLIPPY'S VOICE ACTOR IN ANY OF THE GAMES?

So and so is annoying is a cop out argument. In reality, what you mean is "I dislike the character for no good reason." Which, is absolutely fine. Just don't cite dishonest reasons.

Or, he could be an ESL? Perhaps English isn't his first language.


Cool enough on her own, but should never have left Dinosaur Planet. Has no goddamn business piloting an Arwing. Psychic powers turned into a really stupid Plot ex Machina in Command and Assault.

File: 128149773415.jpg-(128.41KB, 600x727, 1028329.jpg)

>Or, he could be an ESL? Perhaps English isn't his first language.
But he speaks English pretty darn well, so if everything was flawless except the overexplanatory-ness, one wouldn't assume that everything else was the problem.

But I'm just being defensive cause I didn't consider that. My apologies to the OP, whether he's 14 or not.

That's a sweet fanart of Star Wolf. Also I hate Leon's new gurgle style voice. I prefer his old smooth one.

I could admit that Peppy is old and could do with retirement from field combat to look over the Great Fox.

The problem with Krystal is that her only role is to be Fox's Cock Slave. Essentially she's like Starfire from Teen Titans, Rinoa from FF8, Rose from Metal Gear Solid 2. Frankly such characters are just fucking annoying as the only thing they got to their name is their whining about their relationship with the main characters and have no independence or separate traits attached.

If Krystal wasn't defined by being a love interest I'd be fine with her. Though I could do without Panther constantly going "Oh my a star is not as beautiful as Krystal! Oh my a super nova pales in comparison to Krystal's eyes! Not the explosion of a thousand suns compares to Krystal's fur!" That shit is annoying. It overglorifies an already shakey character and makes Panther, a new one, easily very annoying.

To be fair, Krystal isn't from Dinosaur Planet. I find it amusing that she dresses like some kind of tribal character and though she supposedly has a ship to pilot we never see it. It gives the impression she's a native from Dinosaur Planet rather than an advanced alien that lands on Dinosaur Planet like the Cornerian characters.

File: 128155220076.jpg-(223.06KB, 690x768, Krystal_in_Dinosaur_Planet[1].jpg)
Fun fact about the Krystal issue. Many people think that it's because of her that "furries came to the series."

That's such bullshit and pure denial. The furries were always there, but back in the SNES days internet wasn't that common. End result is such people were more obscure compared to nowadays.

Man, are you sure that's not just what you're seeing? I mean, yeah, she and Fox are attracted to each other, but I think you are being a little hard on "girls who have a thing for a teammate." in general.

I mean, couldn't you just have Krystal be the spooky/superstitious pilot as a balance to Slippy's "SCIENCE!" bit? Hanging psychic doohickeys from the controls, using sketchy alternate stuff that sometimes works, trying to get the team to check out whatever ancient ruins they're flying past...

I hate such characters because that's their entire purpose. They got nothing outstanding that defines them. And you can't tell me that characters like Starfire (Robin you're mean for wanting to do your job instead of fuck me in Tokyo!), Rinoa (I am a robot, scanning, target Squall found must ignore the cast exists outside of using a few of them to help my chances of bagging that stalion), Rose (Oh Jack you shouldn't be scared of sleeping in the bed with me and I'm pregannnnnnrtttt) aren't annoying.

I hate to say it, but princess Peach is better simply because at this point its a joke to have peach be the damsel Mario rescues and there's no melodrama attached with her compared to any of these and Krystal included. Hell even Kairi from Kingdom Hearts fame doesn't have such melodrama when her love interest went into the arms of another man.


I meant Dinosaur Planet the game, not Dinosaur Planet the planet.


Starfire does have character outside of that.

On the other hand, Rinoa and Rose ruined their games so yeah.

Name away because in Teen Titans all Starfire ever did was be defined by her obsession with Robin. Her culture as an alien served as a bunch of unfunny "in my planet" flat worthless jokes. Her dedication to Robin was so strong that in the episode where he left to train with that old woman master they show her fall into a depression so harsh she may as well kill herself since she can't live without him.

For that matter she's also on record called Robin "MY Robin" as if he exclusively belongs to her as if some object.

Face it, Starfire is a bland uninspired one dimensional cheerleader for Robin who hungers for his cock. That's all she'll be ever be remembered for.

I think you're projecting some of your emotions onto Krystal who is still relatively new compared to Starfire instead of providing a connection they share as a character type. Not to mention you seem to only site shit from the Teen Titans cartoon instead of examples from the comics or Starfire anywhere outside of that show. Calm down man.

A lot of the pilots from Starfox were hollow originally; it took time for the team to be anything outside of the old guy, the fearless leader, the annoying one and the asshole. Krystal might be harder to do these days what with how quickly fandoms germinate but I don’t think the character is irridemable or forever ruined, you just need her and a game to be planned and executed well.

Yeah, because Starfire totally didn't have whole episodes devoted to her own relationships with other characters and backstory.

Not to mention the comics, which admittedly are pretty different.

Krystal is so badly executed I wonder if retconning her is a better idea. She obviously has no outstanding piloting skills to be a meaningful member of the team. She doesn't acknowledge the other team members as Assault showed. And in commands she was a flip flopping soap opera traitor.

One of the worst scenes had to be when Amanda (Slippy's freak pink frog girlfriend) forced Fox to apologize to Krystal for booting her off the team when her mediocre skills could have gotten her killed. That was painful. And frankly I feel characters like Amanda and Peppy's daughter are only there to overglorify Krystal and act as her apologists and supporters. So they're not welcomed additions if you ask me.

So many shitty characters have been added to this series since Adventures that its beginning to turn into the Sonic Friends effect. The only one that doesn't piss me off is Slippy's father in Assault who served a role without overtaking the game. Simple and clean.

Starfox has a lot of issues to fix up before the series can be redeemed. They range from gameplay to story. And Krystal needs to be dealt with.

Yeah, Slippy's father is great because he's actually mentioned in the Star Fox 64 player's guide.
That name and job even.

File: 128165843958.jpg-(34.23KB, 300x375, 92189-otaku-renamonfan-albums-imagenes-5683-imagen.jpg)
I can fap to her.

Krystal has bothered me since SFA, simply because she's just so badly handled.
I mean, she went from being the full-blown protagonist in her own unrelated game, to WHOOPS STARFOX TIME HOPE YOU LIKE DISTRESS AND TRIBAL BIKINIS
And she's been hamhandedly shoved into the rest of the series as Fox's "will they or won't they" love interest for the sake of painful "oh probably you two will get married" scenes ever since.
I understand they wanted to have a heroine on the team, and that's great, but good god, don't make her character revolve around whiny romantic tension. I mean, fuck, wasn't she supposed to be looking into why her home planet exploded or something?

That's irrelevant at this point. Even Krystal herself doesn't seem to care about her origins anymore ever since she fell in love with Fox.

Dropped plot element is dropped.


Well, let's be fair, here. Command's writing was so unbelievably bad that it's not even worth considering it canon.

Like how if you take a certain path, you randomly wind up creating Monkey Hitler 2.0.

She was apparently the only fox on a planet full of dinosaurs. Finding out that you and your species weren't tied down to one planet may have made things less important. Not that this wasn’t written as such which is the problem at hand. When Nintendo people don’t care for a franchise it can show in how fast it deteriorates.

File: 128166496164.gif-(5.07KB, 64x64, Miyu.gif)
>I understand they wanted to have a heroine on the team...

They did. In fact, they had two of them. Or rather, they would have if Nintendo hasn't dicked with everything.

She wasn't the only fox in a planet of dinosaurs, she was traveling through space and heard a distress signal which led her to the planet as the intro of Adventures stated.

File: 128166589517.gif-(7.44KB, 64x64, Fay.gif)
Hadn't dicked, I mean.

At any rate, Krystal doesn't mesh well into the Starfox universe, especially not as a pilot.

But at the least looks hotter than Fay.

Yeah, I'll be blunt, I love Miyu and Faye's designs.
Too bad Nintendo never released Star Fox 2 :V

File: 128167014252.jpg-(19.57KB, 300x300, Miyu_Art[1].jpg)
Wish they'd try to re-introduce her. I mean Starfox 2 is where the Starwolf team actually debuted. They got carried over into the 64 remake and the rest is history.

Who is to say that Miyu and Fay can't undergo a similar process. Frankly I'll take them over characters like Peppy's daughter and Slippy's girlfriend.

I also want Kat to return as well.

Maybe as mercs you have to pay to extend your team or something. It'd be nice if you could handle the financial side of the Star Fox business and have to earn money from better mission results or following certain paths for upgrades and team extensions...or just shove money into Falco's face to shut him up.

Spess battles sim with simple controls. Why can't we have this already?

To improve the story the series needs more non-animal races in Lylat. Adventures is a good example that shows how much the plot thickens when other species are involved. Assault tried to do something similar with Apparoids but they ended up being just mysterious alien monsters rather than a different civilization.

I wish they made a game with a human empire invading Lylat, I'd love to kick their ass as StarFox. With a decent writer the story would have potential.

Krystal should become heavy weapons girl.

>>Animal people versus evil human empire
Oh I bet that will make some of the fandom ecstatic.

If you want more StarFox, buy the DS game!
Its not bad. I have it.

Have you seen James Cameron's Avatar? Because what you described is exactly what you want. Honestly I am tired of the whole "humans are all monster scum and need to punished" cliche. It got real bad in Avatar to the point I wonder if James Cameron is a misanthrope as the Na'Vis were so annoyingly "perfect" I couldn't stand them.

Another example of this trope being put into effect is in District 9. The main character was a human douche who lost his humanity and experienced the same discrimination that the Prangs did.

Prawns. And District 9 has an excuse in that it was basically Apartheid (which really happened) with Aliens. The Prawns were flawed as hell, and there were some decent enough humans out there.

Totally right about Avatar though. The Na'vi were shallow Blue Elves.


Only do this if you are willing to tolerate some of the worst writing in video game history.

File: 128173364163.jpg-(145.66KB, 852x712, Tali[1].jpg)
I wouldn't mind seeing humans in Starfox provided they do it right. Don't know about the general opinion, but Star Wars and Mass Effect as far as I see it had human characters interacting with multiple alien races. So if done right I'm all for it.

But I don't like the idea of grabbing humans and just turning them into "Lolz we're evil bwa ha ha ha!" type cut and dry black and white villains.

I don't think anyone gives a crap about the fandom and what they like.

Honestly, how's this for an idea:

The Lylat System has plunged into conflict. A militia loyal to Andross has begun a coup de tat in the system. The Cornerian Military, after the defeat of the Aparoids and previously Andross, suffers the fatal flaw of hubris and finds the militia to be more than fanatics with a few weapons and craft.

The militia is well funded and well equipped, so once again the Cornerian military hires out air and spaceborne mercenaries. So, of course the StarFox team is at the top of the list.

All characters are back and this includes:
Flying 4 Ar wing formations, you choose who goes up with you (each with different skills), what kind of Ar Wing they fly, and what kind of load out they take up with them.

The over all campaign would be at first familiar to Starfox 64, but you soon find out you aren't limited to a path and you can deploy to engagements as you like. Selecting a planet will bring up a number of missions and battlefields to enter.

I would give the over all control scheme a bit more freedom, with fully functional Roll-Pitch-Yaw axis'. Adjustable speed, but no stalling. Again, game for kids so we still need to make it accessible. Plus Ar Wings seem to be VTOL's at any rate.

To make sure there's still a cohesive story, I'd have a point system integrate. This isn't visible to the player, so it's not something you would want to play towards (just grinding points, that is). Every few missions or so, you unlock a cutscene that tells the status of the war, and it's set to the back drop of the current planet and team selected.

One other idea would be instead of forcing the player to choose Starfox, you create-a-character and fly your own team for a while, which could include
And eventually could lead you to joining the Starfox or Starwolf

>I wish they made a game with a human empire invading Lylat, I'd love to kick their ass as StarFox. With a decent writer the story would have potential.
Aslong as I could do this to little furries on the ground, I'd be sold, too.

Yeah, I was going to say the same thing. District 9 was a superior movie to Avatar as we didn't get hit over the head with this LOL HUMENS R BAD bullshit like we did in Avatar.

Avatar was stupid.

Not just a militia to Andross. The entire Lylat system's government has withered under the strain of perpetual conflicts from threats like Andross that eventually collapsed the economy what with continually relying on mercenaries like StarFox to defend their many worlds. In this weakened state the militia saw the perfect chance to strike, dividing Lylat into a multisided Civil War. What little funds or resources the fractured pieces of the Cornerian military could use as a form of payment aren’t going to be freely exchanged in the beginning of the conflict as panic sweeps over the new territories and multiple clients arise from rogue planets and politicians looking to save themselves to old enemies looking for something to gain in the turmoil.

StarFox wanting to help or not needs funds and munitions to fight this struggle.

File: 128173836321.jpg-(30.55KB, 500x401, darth-vader.jpg)
The biggest pit with that (and probably mine as well) is keeping it simple. This isn't a Tom Clancy novel, we should keep it simple for a younger audience. That's why I devised two clear cut sides, to at least begin with. Otherwise, you risk developing the same flaws that Star Wars Ep. 1 had. To further prevent that, we need a villain to lead the opfor militia.

The villain *cannot* be like Furry Vegeta Wolf O'Donnell in that he eventually becomes chummy. Wolf has some redeeming qualities, he seems to recognize a greater threat when there is one and will put aside differences to cope with it.

We need a villain that you can despise. We need someone who is sadistic and vile. A villain who is unsympathetic to the average citizen and cares only for consolidating his power and greed. He's not just trying to carve out his own nation, he wants to take over everything and rule over with an iron fist.

>implying Corneria isn't flat and Solar doesn't orbit around it.

Andross was just a pawn placed by the Cornerian Junta to create a Hannibal ad Portas for the people to be scared of. StarFox ISN'T the team of private contractors that helped bring the fight to Andross, they're the most elite of the Cornerian Air and Space Force assembled into a single unit answering only to General Pepper, the ruler of the Cornerian Junta. By operating outside of the obligations of military service and conduct expectations, they can commit horrible atrocities that, even if discovered, would leave no remarkable public outcry against Pepper's regime. And what of Starwolf? Yet another private para-military group of thugs under the thumb of General Pepper!

Yeah, I had to draw for this one. I'm calling him Charles the Conspiracy Fox

Indeed. I kinda miss the old Star Wolf. I don't like Panther since he acts like a bloody traitor. If Krystal gave him a blowjob he'd shoot down Wolf and Leon no questions asked.

The new Wolf and Leon lack good voices ESPECIALLY Leon. While Pigma wasn't a favorite his greedy personality was fun to watch.

The only old Star Wolf member I never liked was Andrew since he felt out of place. If he's Andross' blood relative why is he working for a mercenary force who is neutral and serves the highest bidder which easily could have been Cornia's military? Plus I hate everything he is. He's basically a mini Andross and no more. A reminder that won't go away even though Andross is dead. So to me he serves little purpose.

But Wolf is now Engineer!


Wolf's voice actor for Brawl also does the role of TF2's Engineer.

Incidentally, Soldier is voiced by the man who did SF64's Wolf.

I like to think that Andrew just bullied his way onto the team to feel big. That's all he seems to do really...

I see. And talk about a sense of coincidence.

I know that Deviant Art is know, but sometimes I love what they can end up producing.

Here's the sauce:


Fuck it, here.

  Know what would really be cool? This is something that I think almost every single flying game/flight shooter could benefit from: A more atmospheric cockpit.

If you're a super flight nerd like I, you sometimes choose to fly from the cockpit view. The problem with this is of course it's more restrictive than the chase and since you can't look about the game world as you could if you were in the cockpit. That's fine, IMO, as I'm trading off that for more immersion. But, then you realize this: It's a pretty static kind of view. Sure, gauges do spin and the attitude indicator tells you that you're rolling. But, that's it. I wanna see some serious head bob from turbulence and hits. I wanna hear labored breathing into the O2 Mask mic. For games that want more action and to be more cinematic, this would probably go a very long way. When I pitch my nose up hard, have the view settle down lower into the cockpit, as if I'm being pushed in by the G's. Gimme some radio chatter, too. Not just Slippy begging me to clear his six, not just Nagase telling me how much she hates war, but I wanna hear some vectors being fed to other pilots. I don't care if it's silly and wrong, kids would love that. I would have at that age.

And, if you went with more open ended approach like I set out earlier, you could be ambushed on entry into a planet's atmosphere. So, you're shooting down drones while your Ar Wing is blazing red on descent.

That would be sweet.

Hate to say it, but Krystal is kinda hot in that pic. Probably because her muzzle isn't sticking out and she looks to have a more normal face.

I'd chalk it up to the fact that the creators gave her a very human like body. I'm not a psychologist or a behavior specialist, but I'd suspect your subconscious is recognizing her as a human given her figure.

Not a surprise, it's Rare. The WB/Disney of gaming that served up a lot of hot non-human women.

Seriously, the big boobed plant from Conker, Beri, Krystal, Tiny Kong, Honey Bee, etc.

At the end of the day, if its hot then fap. It's perfectly normal to respond to a sexy image of the human female figure.

Don't know if you've noticed, but Candy Kong is kinda ugly. She was at her best probably in the N64 game, but the rest of the time, nah. Also, what little good art there is, is usually for Dixie or Tiny.

DK in general gets a lot of badly drawn fanart.

this, pretty much. I honestly wouldn't mind if SF643DS reboots the series and retcons Krystal. she's just...badly written and way too overdramatic, especially in Command.

I always thought a co-op Star Fox would be cool. There'd be different missions made specifically for co-op in mind, and each player would take a different path, join again for big fights, etc.

I would like to..... differ.

I've always wondered what Dinosaur Planet would have been like if they left Starfox out of it, and how the Starfox franchise would be if they stuck to their old-style guns.


>I would like to..... yiffer.


Dinosaur Planet would have probably sold badly if it weren't for the SF name.

And SF seems to be more than anything a showcase series to show a system's power as it happened with SNES and N64. I don't think it's gameplay can survive and appeal to people who aren't nostalgia fans.

Maybe it's just me, but when it comes to anthro females, dogs just aren't appealing.

This post >>90354 was meant to >>90125 , by the way.

And I already replied >>90359. Anthro female dogs aren't too hot.

It's the lack of human characteristics in the face that irks me. And by that, I mean SO BALD.

Which is funny because when it comes to female anthros you're bound to get more wolves and foxes. Particularly the latter. Both of which belong to the same canine family.


As I expected, good sir, but others may miss the implied witticism.

You mean the wrench in the pic and how you'd "unscrew" her wide open?

Here, I'll set the mood for you, as well.

Fucking Wiimote and nunchuk acting as flight stick and throttle

I wonder when we'll get more on 64 3D.

Who knows. I don't think Nintendo intends to release much info it's more than likely one of those:

"You know its coming so since it's just better visuals, there's nothing else to report."

Type deals. Especially since the game seems to be a launch title like how it was for the N64.

I hope they get rid of Panther and add a female Starwolf member. While I like his design I can't stand his Krystal Worship personality.

Wolf gets a girlfriend?

Not even close to what I have in mind. Just an effective female to add variety to Starwolf and no more.

Frankly, I could do without romance in SF.

We don't need any bitches and/or whores in Wolf's brigade.

Yeah we do. Otherwise enjoy your gay and in case of Leon your canon gay as Brawl seems to hint.

Starwolf has become a three men squad. Originally twas a four men deal. Pigma got fired and Andrew is off on his Empire Conquest deal so there's definitively room on board even with Panther remaining.

It's not really Star Wolf unless they're a mirror of Star Fox, in my opinion. A fourth member would be most welcome.

No, that's a horrible idea. If Krystal, Amanda, and Peppy's daughter are any clue, Nintendo has no fucking idea what to do with their female characters. I'd rather they not have another character to ruin.

Speaking of female characters, what happened to Katt? What they did to her design was an absolute travesty.

Actually, I really like Panther. I actually commend Namco for adding him into the Star Wolf team. His thing with Krystal isn't supposed to be taken seriously I think, as I get the impression he woos just about every attractive woman he comes across. A real ladies man. imo, Panther is more likeable that Pigma and Andrew put together, and seems trust-worthy enough to put Starwolf before hos. The guy's got his priorities straight.

I don't know what the fuck was with his third-person dialogue in Command, though.

File: 128411862174.jpg-(106.91KB, 536x763, p11.jpg)
Have to disagree here. Krystal isn't defined by her psychic powers, so I find it off-putting that she'd be labeled as the "Psychic" in Assault. iirc, they only ever play a noticeable role when she detects a distress signal from Sauria, which inadvertently distracts the team from an Aparoid attack on Corneria.

Her psychic abilities are just second-hand in her arsenal. She can't read minds or levitate lamps or over the top things like that, she can only read emotions.

File: 128411955064.png-(78.19KB, 480x640, 56-1.png)
You have to admit, the Aparoids screwed Lylat and Starfox over big time. They killed Pigma, NEARLY killed General Pepper and Peppy, destroyed the Great Fox, wiped out most of Corneria's defense fleet, and almost took over Corneria City and Sauria.

They were a force to be reckoned with. I wonder how Lylat is going to recover from the economic collapse.

The Great Fox getting completely destroyed was my biggest gripe. I honestly wish they hadn't done that.

You just wish that everyone didn't just miraculously survive.

Of course Nintendo knows SHIT about female characters and why you simply do NOT trust them. See how they gave Metroid to Team Ninja for Other M.

Anyways the idea is not bad as you like to label it's just all about execution. Krystal wouldn't be bad if not for her execution. Though I'll admit Amanda and Peppy's daughter are simply garbage lacking in personality and overall purpose. Those characters deserved to be dropped and forgotten completely. Those two never even had a slimmer of potential to be good.

As far as Starwolf is concerned with a female character I'd say a hyena girl would fit in as hyena's are usually depicted as villains when anthros come into play.

While the Aparoids did their damage, it would have made them more memorable if they weren't just a mindless mass of a force.

That's the real issue.

So? It'd be stupid to ask for Event Horizon. These are just talking animals.

>Anyways the idea is not bad as you like to label it's just all about execution. Krystal wouldn't be bad if not for her execution.
I will agree 110%.

>As far as Starwolf is concerned with a female character I'd say a hyena girl would fit in as hyena's are usually depicted as villains when anthros come into play.
That's a good idea. Or some other lean canid, such as a Jackal.


> if they weren't just a mindless mass of a force.

It gave me that feeling, too. I could really have liked Starfox assault if it weren't for that, the sudden introduction of such enemy seemed forced, and the lack of any deep shit coming from their side definitely didn't help.

Agreed. It would have been cool if the Aparoids evolved to become more organic and able to communicate and talk on their own rather than bring up images of the past for mere melodrama purposes. That just made them seem unable to interact on the here and now somewhat.

File: 128429490979.jpg-(389.27KB, 649x500, 12108754.jpg)
I guess. I just want to see some character designs and hear some voice clips.

That could've been cool. Have Pigma's, Pepper's, and a bunch of other voices all melded together into one clusterfuck that told Fox it's plans to assimilate all living matter.

I hope they kept the old voices or at least try to mimic them. God do I hate Leon's new voice.

That was like.. seriously.. pissing in the Ark of the covenant. Leon was sweet in 64. You could just picture him being cool and collected in his cockpit as he trained his nosed on Falco. He'd lose his temper once in a while (Annoying bird.. I am the great Leon!) but then regain his composure. He had style and class.

Assault made him seem like a fucking Pedo.

Personally, I think that the Star Fox series is in need of a reset game wise. Star Fox and SF64 were both really good, Adventures had it moments, but wasn't really a Star Fox game in my eyes, and Assault would have been a 100 times better if they didn't have the on foot sections and just stuck with the vehicles. I haven't played the Command, but from what I've read on the multiple endings and such it just seems too overly complicated to really continue from. Whether or not they go back to the original formula or not is up to them, but I'd like to see a return to form for the series.

In Assault he sounded like he had something stuck in his throat mixed with gurgling mouth wash. That bad.

Funny that you mentioned that Adventures is not a SF game.

You see throughout the game at times even Fox himself showed facial expressions as if to display and tell the player "I'm out of my element here."

The cut scene that particularly shows this off is the one with Tricky's mother who explains to Fox the whole deal with the magic rock thing that the Earth Walker Dinos use. The explanation was dragging on and on and on like a cut scene from an RPG and you could tell that Fox was getting fed up waiting for her to stop talking so he can get to work.

It makes you wonder what kind of thought process they underwent to come to the conclusion he needed a total change of voice stylization. I could understand if they didn't have the same voice actor. People die in car accidents or move on from the work itself. Or maybe he just didn't have the time. But why change his style all together.
The on foot parts were so badly done, I honestly want to make a Marathon Mod or a Doom WAD just so it could at least be done in some kind of playable manner.

What if they make the foot missions like Ratchet and Clank? An explorable world with interesting weapons and stuff to find that also move the plot forward as you interact with the different planet's citizens?

Yeah I could totally get behind that. Sort of a similar setup to Pikmin. Your ass gets blasted out of the sky and you have to put together your ship by talking to locals and trying to find the pieces again.

For added reply, give yourself character select and individual cutscenes/story for each character

But in all seriousness we do need better female characters. Krystal works as fap bait, but as an amusing character? Not even close.

She just can't enjoy her sandwich in peace.

Everyone has a girl now except for Star Wolf.
Unless you count Panther sometimes having Krystal depending on the ending.

Nah we all know that the hero's bitch always stays by the hero. So that's nothing.

Star Wolf needs a female member. Considering it's never been done, I'd say a fitting female character to join Wolf's crew would be a loyal and calculating type. You know the type that isn't so quick to act to act on emotions like how Leon and Panther (or Andrew and Pigma) are.

Someone who is really supportive of the squad and can double as a mechanic for their side, unless the mechanic has been covered by a pre-existing member.

Sounds like Mary Sue material. It's a bad idea.

Leon IS the loyal and calculating type. Or at least, was intended to be.

File: 128469897638.jpg-(468.53KB, 492x2000, s-hj.jpg)

Only because you read it in this image board. If it happened chances are you would dig it. It happened with Kingdom Hearts Days. Everybody was screaming "Xion is a Mary Sue!" Once the game came out?

"We WUV her!"

Seriously, if you want to get down to it, Krystal is a Mary Sue (and she still gets accused of it, but people have quieted down over the years). Panther is Mary Sue (self insert of a Krystal Fanboy).

Ya dig? Would have been better if you said not your cup of tea rather than just misuse the term as it always seems to be the case.

To address your other point, that's precisely why I thought this up. You think I'm happy with Leon losing his smooth intellectual persona to become a gurgled cartoony hyperactive mess of a character? At least one character of Star Wolf should be a calm and collected supportive type. The idea of being smart enough to act as a mechanic for the team would be useful considering how often these guys get their asses kicked by Starfox. And since women usually get these kinds of traits (without a doubt especially intelligence; see shows like Kimpossible, Fairly Odd Parents, Raven from Teen Titans, etc) I thought it would be an easy fit.

Take that as you will.

I was just thinking, the new AC seems to have a game function similar to that of GoW (A player initiated QTE). I don't know how this'll turn out for AC, but as Starfox is grounded in absolutely no reality whatsoever, they could probably roll with an idea like that and really make it work well. Make it simple and rewarding.

Pic related, it's a Starfighter. badum tsh.

Fay - Not sure if want.
Pink Katt - I'd hit it the fist of an angry god.

Lucy (Peppy's daughter) - Kill and skin.
Amanda - Kill and sell to the French for their restaurants.
Black Katt - Meh.

Sort of.
But there's that 3DS remake coming out, that's something to talk about.

Fox's best design is the Assault one. He looks more leader esque and slick.

I'd argue his original design was better, because it looks like the talking fox from Labyrinth.

I'll second that.

You mean the far left one that's only seen in the game cover and not anywhere in the actual game? That looks like a bad fursuit mixed with nightmare fuel.

That's why it's awesome. Though, he needs thicker ankles.

Why does Krystal look like she's on the verge of molesting Peppy's daughter and tarnishing her purity?

Also notice how Krystal oddly enough looks like a cat in that and this pic. Strange no?

>what this is turning into

Anybody else not like the three toe foot/paw thing? It looks really freaky, especially since Krystal has five fingers on her hands.

The only time I was able to stomach that design choice is with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which for some reason the three fingers and toes design works IMO. The rest of the time give me five or the more common four numbered finger/toes design.

Considering all the Krystal pics, may as well ask. Anyone else kind of dislike how Krystal is blue? Couldn't she have been a regular colored fox?

No because she's a Space-Space Fox. That makes her extra Spacey.

But dude, Fox himself (and his father) were regular foxes and they're also sci fi esque. Krystal being the "glitch in the system" if you will makes her not mesh too well with the SF universe.

Sure she was blue in Dinosaur Planet while her supposed brother was regular colored, but that was an original property before it got turned into a SF game. Since they altered her species (she was a feline creature there) when changing DP into SFA couldn't they had changed the fur color?

Thus, "Extra" Spacey.

Trying to apply logic to a sci-fi-fantasy setting like Starfox is just gonna leave you going in circles, man.

Canids with hominid features such as opposable thumbs, bipedal locomotion, and very VERY humanoid breasts make Darwin spin in his grave. It goes against the very theory of evolution.

Also, in regards to color of coat:

After watching that vid.....foxes who don't fear people? Dude no good.

Wild animals that see that humans are harmless through too much interaction with us means they know we're easy prey with "Free Meal" stickers attached.

That's what wolves who interact with humans do.

Even if the foxes in there are semi tamed you shouldn't expose children to them.

Also I found it humorous how they determined the mating process...

"Keep snarling and you're never going to get laid."


Brace yourself.

File: 128510790739.png-(82.14KB, 405x283, 1285078323651.png)
Foxes that were selectively bred to do so, keep in mind. That was not a wild population in the sense that they were caged throughout their lives. They're just like dogs, in that sense.

They make great companions if you're a bachelor like I.

Goddamn, is Orangina seriously ran by furries?

File: 128510851775.jpg-(270.72KB, 1021x1300, andthatsterrible.jpg)
That's way too spacey.

Look I like anthro chicks, but I'd feel majorly embarrassed if this ever played on US channels.

All the psychic space foxes from the psychic space fox planet which I think blew up or something are blue.
That's how you can tell that they have special powers.

I've made peace with it. Krystal is blue for sci fi reasons and makes her stand out more.

Arctic Foxes sometimes have "blue" fur (and in fact are known as the "Blue Fox"). Blue Foxes are generally less well adapted to life in snowy climates so they tend to die off pretty quick.

But they're "blue," not blue.
