Original Thread: The Planet's Dying, Fox! Let's Play Star Fox Adventures



The Story so Far:
"Eight years have passed since Andross was finally overthrown by the daring Star Fox team. Following the celebrations, Fox McCloud and friends returned to the only life they knew - an endless patrol of the Lylat system, guarding against ongoing threats to their territory. Boredom soon struck, causing Fox's close friend Falco Lombardi to simply disappear, leaving only rumor to suggest that his lone-wolf nature had finally led him to pursue a more free and profitable life.

Then Slippy Toad traded his pilot's wings for a place in Weapons R&D, demonstrating a natural flair for invention, while Fox's old friend and mentor Peppy Hare retired from active flight duty to concentrate on a role as navigator and general advisor. The Great Fox itself had also seen better days. Keeping a ship of that size in prime condition cost serious money and well-paid jobs for fighter pilots and mercenaries were increasingly difficult to come by. So it was that fox and co. found themselves drifting through the galaxy, waiting and hoping for General Pepper's hologram to pop up with just the kind of high-stakes, high-reward mission that they needed..."

About the Game:
The 3rd game in the Star Fox series goes a different direction from the usual rail shooting and All-Range Mode action, taking Fox McCloud "Out of the cockpit... and into epic adventure!" for the first time. Indeed 90% of the game is spent on foot as Fox, solving puzzles, running errands, and completing one-off gameplay challenges with Rail Shooting sections few and far between. The game gets compared to Zelda quite a lot with this review from IGN even calling it "a rip off of Shigeru Miyamoto's Zelda offerings in just about every way possible". While you can definitely feel the 3D Zelda inspiration, Star Fox Adventures still does it's own thing a lot of the time for better or worse (mostly worse).

About the Let's Play:
Unlike our previous Let's Plays that are all post-commentary, this one will be done live! Which is definitely supposed to be a parallel to Star Fox Adventures being different from the previous games and not because we tried post-commentary with this game first and I didn't like it so I scraped the idea. Joining me on this Star Fox Adventure will be Lynxwinters who has never seen the game and Mico, starting video 6, who has only played a bit of the beginning. While I plan on spending most of my time goofing on this game, I do genuinely enjoy it even when it's being a butt!
