  1. I've never really been into F-Zero, but if they did bring it back, I'd certainly give it a try.

      I'd say its pretty unique because your car can crash if you don't pay attention to your health and there's some out there designs.

      However it goes super fast so it can be hard to adjust to.

      I've only played the SNES version

      I still 100% disagree with their (Miyamoto's) reasoning for not making a new one. That they simply can't think of anything new to do with it. Real talk, Nintendo innovation is pretty cool sometimes. I realize it's what sets them apart from the rest and is where they often gain most of their success (hell it's basically how I got Uprsing). Though, I feel like they try to do it to a default at times and it can often be for the worst.

      Ya don't need some ground breaking revelation to make a new one. Hell, the new tech available to them now that wasn't there 15 years ago is MORE than enough. Seriously, online play alone is reason enough to make a new one.

      What's even more confusing is that, looking at things like NSMBs or any of the Mario spin-offs, they know how to just release a new entry with nothing new...

      And this is all leaving out the fact that Nintendo hasn't offered a way for newcomers to play GX (the game they think already satisfies fans) officially in a decade. They might say that fans of F-Zero should be happy with GX but at least give them a way to play it on systems they actually have at the ready nowadays.

      Like seriously, they crack down on roms and fan games while simultaneously waving fan request for new official entries into these various franchises. All while not offering said games on any current storefront.

      @Strickerx5 That does sound like a sucky excuse. They should understand by now that sometimes the new ideas don't always hit home, like with Star Fox Zero and Metroid: Other M. (I'm not actually very familiar with those games either. I'm just aware that they both have earned negative reception for various reasons.)

      One thing I have noticed is the wide range of characters set in this futuristic Sci-Fi based world. A lore that has so much potential, yet gathers dust due to flat thinking. A racing game with a story mode is very rarely done if at all, from what I recall anyway. It would be very easy to add motion controls to F-Zero, even give that Labo Wheel another reason to be used.

      @-dan-One thing of note is that I'm pretty sure Miyamoto said this before Zero came out. Hopefully him and Nintendo learned a good lesson from it in that innovation isn't always the best thing (and hopefully not that "lol, star fox in general doesn't sell well" or some other bs that they try to use sometimes). Like how the lesson they took from Other M for a while was "don't let third parties work on our franchises." Thank God they seem to have grown out of that.

      As for story, the same could be said for quite a few of their franchises. Even outside of specific genres, they barely put effort into that kind of stuff sadly (even though they've proven to be good at it a number of times).

      As for motion controls... eh, that's one thing I'm glad they didn't jump on for this series. I'm not saying that it couldn't work, but F-Zero is the kind of game that requires precision controls. That sort of thing just isn't possible yet with motion controls and would probably just lead to frustration on the players behalf. That or they over simplify the gameplay into being just another cart racer or something.

      Now that you mention it, motion controls probably wouldn't work due to the speed. I remember trying one of the games, I forget which one but I was bouncing off the walls like a freakin' pinball. lol

      @Strickerx5 More like, between Zero and Pikmin 3, he doesn't feel like there's enough to the games to make people love them, and wants to do future titles right by that now. Definitely because of the sales of the two, imo.


    8. Strickerx5


      @The DeleterWell Zero did lack a bunch of basic features and Hey Pikmin was just... no... so here's hoping he follows through on those.

      On one hand I'm glad because Pikmin 4 desperately needs a graphical fine tuning in the HD generation, so I hope he takes his time in that regard, but on the other hand



      He said it was finished like 4 years ago aghHHHH
