Yeah, I guess Star Fox never had any kind of open ended moments where you can dodge enemy attacks and hover around...

And this whole "Ubisoft makes a better Star Fox than Nintendo" is also pretty dumb considering Nintendo hasn't made a Star Fox game for 20 years, and the one they did make is still considered a great game. Sure, you can say Zero turned out like it did more due to Miyamoto than Platinum, but it was still Platinum who made it.

Personally, I'm quite perplexed by this announcement. I wasn't even watching the presentation and had no idea what was going on when my friends started shouting "STAR FOX" everywhere, which was deflating to me as I was expecting the Star Fox announcement this E3 to be the Retro game tomorrow. Of course, that could still happen, but if it doesn't it'll be far more disappointing now - I'd rather not see a franchise at all than see it only show up as a cameo in some random third-party game, especially if said franchise's future is highly uncertain.

I just hope the whole Retro thing is still on.

Well, I didnt play every single StarFox game, but if I never heard anything about the hover and dodges and all, it must probably be because these games werent anything special.

I just dont get this hostility.It dosent matter if Nintendo didnt develop internally Star Fox for how many years, what matters is that they have mismanaged the IP, thats all.And when I saw more of Starlink, I thought that this game could bring in fresh ideas to the IP that could really make it work.

Anyways, thats more of an idea for a future title, assuming that Retro game is true.

It's been around since Star Fox 64, and if Star Fox 64 wasn't anything special then no Star Fox game is. Of course, I'm sure there's some difference between SF64's all-range mode and whatever Starlink does (I just can't bother watching it), but if there's one thing you can't call it, it's "on rails".

Nintendo definitely mismanaged the IP during the 2000's. This decade, well, there's only been one game so far, but I wouldn't say they're mismanaging the franchise right now as much as they just mismanaged one game. There's a considerable difference there - Star Fox Zero might be a flawed game, but it doesn't really screw up the IP as a whole, something Star Fox Adventures definitely did.

And of course, Retro's game, if real, wouldn't be really franchise-defining because it is just a racing spin-off. So, there.


Don't be annoyed at the hostility. Take it like this: I've been wanting to talk about this here since I saw the announcement, but because there's no reaction threads, I'd have to go on the general Ubisoft Conference thread, which I wouldn't do because 1. everyone else was already talking about AC at the time, and 2. those kinds of threads are better suited to short posts rather than long ones. They're also the place for people to hype shit up and express their excitement, and I wouldn't want to go there just to be a party pooper. So, the moment I saw someone make a thread on this, well, it was time for thought dumping.

I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!
