Retronauts Live(?) Episode 20: Star Fox

Star Fox is weird. Say what you will about the odd trajectory of the Metroid series; Nintendo's furry take on Star Wars has taken some exceptionally odd turns throughout its 18-year history. And since everyone on the 1UP staff denied any familiarity with Star Fox (or so they claimed), I had no choice but to turn to outside sources for help. Yes, if you wanted to make some sort of grand analogy -- which I advise against -- consider me Fox McCloud, GamePro's Kat Bailey Peppy Hare, and IGN's Sam Claiborn and Brian Altano as Falco and Slippy (in that order). So please, enjoy episode 20 at your home or workplace; you'll be glad you did.

Oh, and here's a video of Argonaut Software's X -- it's the precursor to Star Fox, and the reason why Nintendo took such an interest in a few crafty teens from the U.K.

And if you're interested in some of the secret history of Star Fox, you should find the following links pleasing:

Iwata Asks - Star Fox 64 3D

SNES Central's long, twisted history of Star Fox 2

Unseen 64's page on Rare's Dinosaur Planet

Also, before I forget, the Retronauts mailbag has recently been infested with tumbleweeds, who have since allied with a rather sizable spider population. Please help us stamp out this menace by sending us things! Here's the address:

Re: Retronauts Live(?) Episode 20: Star Fox

I only ever played the first Starfox, I played Starfox Assault multiplayer once.
Starfox is awesome, Assault, not so much.

Re: Retronauts Live(?) Episode 20: Star Fox

Emulators suck for playing Star Fox =P.

And you should turn off score mode for that game, it doesn't work.

Re: Retronauts Live(?) Episode 20: Star Fox

I feel like I should dig out my SNES just to play Starfox and F-Zero.

Re: Retronauts Live(?) Episode 20: Star Fox

Route 2 is the best because the final level is an action filled police chase with high tempo music.
Yes, a space ship versus police vans and police bikers! Exciting!
