Star Fox 64 won our Patreon poll last month, and a deal is a deal. I played through it - multiple times - and I'm ready to rant.
I know this game is pretty beloved by a large chunk of the retro gaming community. Personally, it's not really my cup of tea, but there's a big difference between a bad game, and a good game that I just don't like. I think this is the latter, and while I definitely got into the stuff that didn't tickle my fancy, I did my best to show this game the respect that I think it deserves. Except Slippy. Fuck him so much.
Plus, my buddy Daniel was my guest this week, and he grew up playing this bad boy, so even if you don't like what I have to say, he should make up for it.
And as always, before we start doing barrel rolls, it's another Remember The Game Infamous Intro!
This week, we talk about my inability to pronounce people's names. We also get into working out to video game soundtracks, a bunch of listeners throw game suggestions at me, and a lifelong Playstation fan picked up an Xbox Series S when he couldn't find a PS5, and now he finds himself at a gaming crossroads.
Plus, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This time, it's the "Forgotten Nintendo Franchise" edition, featuring the entire franchises of Punch-Out!, Star Fox, and F-Zero!
