What Would The Ultimate Star Fox Game Include?
I have a whole folder of game ideas I have written down as a kid, all the way I am today. One of the plans I had drawn up was a whole Star Fox game in case I ever wanted to go forward and make my own Star Fox fan game.

Okay, I will start off by stating what I want from the story elements. I want a dark story that makes sense, but ends on a good note. Unlike a certain other title which leaves us with nine different story lines and nine different endings, I want branching missions like that of Starfox 64 that does not impact the storyline that much.

Now as for the actual story, I want the Cornerian Military to be somewhat competent and able to hold their own to a degree, remember the mission in Assault where you had to defend the warp gate, or even the Macbeth mission in Starfox 64, that is what I want.

I want the characters to be more than cardboard cut outs, Fox being your standard hero, Krystal being your standard eye candy love interest, Falco being the smart mouthed rival, Peppy being the standard mentor and Slippy being the comic relief, give the characters some depth to them.

Give the characters problems, Fox can have something about his parents or something, like getting angry when remarks are made about them (such as Pigma in 64 for example) or get angry at Panther when he hits on Krystal. Krystal can have some problems about her home world, like something we don't know about is tugging at her emotions. Falco... I dunno, make him reference his old days in a gang or something. Give Peppy a reason to be telling us all this advice, like Fox gets into a near fatal accident and Peppy gets over protective or something. Make Slippy worry free, in fact, leave Slippy as he is, he can be the one of the group keeping morale up. While I say I want them to have problems, I don't want them to be emo like Final Fantasy, acknowledge them, don't overplay it.

I want a story that isn't predictable, we all know what is going to happen straight away in any Star Fox game. Granted most games story endings are predictable, like Link will always rescue Zelda, what I want is a sense of mystery during the story, like how does this private army always know where we are and it turns out character x did something, or have someone get shot down and you lose them as a partner for x amount of levels, just, something we don't see coming. Also, please keep the romance down to a minimum, sure have it in there, Assault was perfect, Command shat on the concept.

Now for game play. Make the damned game twelve hours long, longer would be awesome but hard to pull off in a rails shooter. Something to increase the longevity of the game would be to add side missions on the planets, that can be completed after the main mission, picking off fleeing enemies, destroy remaining enemy strongholds, collect x amount of y's, etc.

Add more Star Wolf encounters, make the Star Wolf AI intelligent and difficult, and for the love of god... give them a fourth member, Miyu anyone? Also, they need to feel like a threat, not like Team Rocket, make them have a victory or two to make them seem credible.

For vehicle sections, I want it to stick to the Starfox 64 style. That said I do want some changes. For example, when we boost, I want some motion blur added when we boost so it feels like we are going faster, adding to the effect.

In the health bar, I would like to see a change, I would like to the health split into two sections, the shield bar, and hull bar. Any damage taken to the hull is sustained throughout the level although, collecting three gold rings will repair hull damage and recharge shields, shields can be recharged by the silver rings or collecting gold rings.

I want the ability to play as any of the characters on your team and their ships to play differently, this is the ONLY thing I wish to see carried over from Command. For each character, if the AI does a particular job in the mission, like Falco will cover Fox who is in a Landmaster or Krystal will destroy the tanks left in a hanger, I want that to carry over to the player. Each character will be pre-assigned to a vehicle at the start of the mission, and the player can choose which vehicle they wish to operate. For example, Fox is assigned to the Landmaster and the others are in Arwings, if you chose Fox you would control the Landmaster, if you chose Krystal, Slippy or Falco then you would be in the Arwing.

For on foot sections, I do like them. What I didn't like what Assault did was (apart from controls) the lack of a quick select for weapons, the ability to get into vehicles, the level design, and the lack of variety. What I want to do, is have a Ratchet and Clank style quick select menu for weapons. Add some variety to the missions and design them well, for example for variety, why not add sections where you need to sneak past enemies until you get weapon x, or work together with character y to break into location z and cover them while they hack doors.

Multiplayer! Multiplayer needs online and split screen! Online matches of 12v12, imagine it! Using what we have from Starfox 64 3D's new use of the Mario Kart style item blocks when used in on foot battles, we can get homing missiles, land mines, shields, all types of fun. Add game modes, like capture the flag, king of the hill, payload, free for all and standard deathmatch.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but meh, I'll think of it later.

People like Rick Perry are the reason I gave up being a Republican. I would NEVER be a Democrat, so I'm going for Libertarian. ...and I agree with you, regarding Justin Beiber, I hate that thatch haired stupid little mangina f***ing a**hole. I also hate Ray William Johnson, and Onision, iJustine...heck, the Archfiend and Cammehyabams has some great videos bashing those youtube scum.

I can't hate Justin Bieber as a person as I have never met him in real life (nor do I want to) so I can't judge his real personality, but I despise and loathe him as an 'artist'.

As for Ray William Johnson... I can't say much more on him than I have already said.
Onision is more of a piece of *&@! than Ray William Johnson... When you put up a video of your girlfriend who was suffering memory loss and seizures and you put ads on it to profit on it... that makes you a sick human being. And... to add insult to injury... they were both faking it! He was profiting from making his girlfriend act like she had serious mental problems to profit from those who actually suffer from these mental problems... I'd show you the video but he took it down after being called out on it being staged... What a piece of scum.

That is all. XD
Hahahaha! Genius! *Subs to that guy*

Waffle's Rant Corner
My subject for today... Rick Fucking Perry...

Now, normally I wouldn't comment on the politics of another country, but this... this is so fucking retarded that I just have to address its absolute stupidity. For those of you who don't know who I am talking about, Rick Perry is the Governor of Texas and Republican candidate for the Presidency, he is the organizer of the Texan Prayer rally, and is also infamous for pushing the limits of the separation of church and state.

Those reasons alone aren't exactly worth me bitching about, but this... this stupid campaign advert is so fucking stupid. This is the advert I am talking about...

[utube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PAJNntoRgA[/utube]

Watched the whole thing? Good. Now you know why I am bitching about it and why it is more disliked than Rebecca Black's Friday... Now to address the video:

Quote:
 
I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a Christian...
That is a pretty ballsy statement coming from someone in a country where 80% OF THE POPULATION IS FUCKING CHRISTIAN! *insert sarcastic clap here* Now if he admitted he is an atheist or another religion THEN it would be a ballsy statement.

Quote:
 
...but you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know that there's something wrong with this country when gays can serve openly in the military...
Yeah Rick Perry, yeah. You know there is something wrong when we allow gay people overseas to put their lives on the line fighting for the very freedom that allows you to say fucking retarded *&@! like this! ::)

Quote:
 
...but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.
What fucking American kid is being prevented form celebrating Christmas? (Excluding those of other faiths that don't celebrate Christmas). And as far as I recall, kids can pray in class all they want... hell they can even start church groups, the only problem with that was that teachers lead prayer in public schools, that is the only thing that isn't allowed anymore, teachers cannot initiate the whole class to pray, individuals are more than welcome to pray, in public schools at least. Correct me if I am wrong.

Quote:
 
As President, I will end Obama's war on religion...
What war on religion?! If Obama had declared a war on religion, what fucking chance would he have at winning a second term in an 80% Christian country? If he had declared a war on religion, I would have heard about it. Also, wasn't Obama first accused of being a secret Muslim, then he was attacked for his Christian pastor?

Quote:
 
...and I'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.
Last I checked 54% of liberals said their religion was very important to them... so how can you say that there is a concerted liberal effort against religion?

Quote:
 
Faith made America strong and can make her strong again.
I'm pretty sure it was the A-Bomb. And also... meh!

Quote:
 
I'm Rick Perry, and I approve this message.
Who the hell says that when they are the one giving the message which they obviously agree with. You only say that when you have a creepy voice over saying *&@! like '"President Obama wants to end religion... oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." then follow it up with that you approve this message...

Yeah, you can see why this is retarded...


Miyamoto steps down
UPDATE 10:14am GMT 12/8/11

An official statement has been issued by Nintendo:

"Video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto's role at Nintendo is not changing. He will continue to be a driving force in Nintendo's development efforts. In discussing his priorities at Nintendo in a media interview, Mr. Miyamoto explained how he is encouraging the younger developers at the company to take more initiative and responsibility for developing software. He attempted to convey his priorities moving forward, inclusive of overseeing all video game development and ensuring the quality of all products. Mr. Miyamoto also discussed his desire to pursue fresh ideas and experiences of the kind that sparked his initial interest in video games."

UPDATE 12:55am PST 12/8/11

More clarity on Miyamoto's role comes courtesy of Bloomberg Japan.

According to a Nintendo representative, Miyamoto will be focusing more of his attention on training younger developers. This will result in him "reducing his involvement" on game development, but he will still focus in on major titles. Miyamoto is not leaving his current post as the director and manager of EAD.

UPDATE 12:10am PST 12/8/11

Contacted by Reuters Japan, Nintendo is denying a report from Wired that Shigeru Miyamoto is stepping down from his current role as Senior Managing Director and General Manager of Nintendo's Entertainment Analysis and Development Division.

"This is absolutely not true. There seems to have been a misunderstanding. [Miyamoto] has said all along that he wants to train the younger generation. He has no intention of stepping down. Please do not be concerned," a Nintendo of Japan spokeswoman told Reuters.

Nintendo's stock had dropped 2% by the close of trading on Thursday in Japan.

Legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto is "retiring" from his current role at the company in order to make smaller, more personal games, according to an interview with Wired today.

"I'm not saying that Iím going to retire from game development altogether," the Nintendo senior managing director told the site. "What I mean by retiring is, retiring from my current position."


Miyamoto will step down from his current role at Nintendo.
Miyamoto told Wired that he wants to "be in the forefront of game development once again," working on smaller projects, either alone or with younger developers. Currently he oversees longer term projects that take as long as five years to make. Miyamoto said he hopes to start work on one of his smaller projects soon, and be able to show it off before the end of 2012.
