    With some awesome Star Fox Zero footage included

    Star Fox Zero isn't far away, and as the name suggests it will serve in part as a greatest hits showcase for the modern generation.

    The release of Star Fox Zero's opening cutscene is still only available in Japanese, but upon closer inspection it looks like we may not need an English translation to know what's going on.

  • Weirdness Here's a Team Fortress 2 Star Fox Deathmatch Mod

    Yes, really

    Team Fortress is a phenomenon, as the Valve-developed multiplayer FPS typifies the features that many PC gamers adore — basically, it can be modded and manipulated in a lot of ways. It's a major part of the game's appeal, though the default crazy cartoonish action has a legion of fans, with plenty still playing the ageing game to this...

  • News Make Miyamoto Smile: Show StarFox Love

    Feels Fox fallen, fears future frustration

    Some would argue - not necessarily us, but some - that StarFox is a franchise best left dead, having had its glory years nearly a decade ago and only reappearing in mediocre titles since Lylat Wars/StarFox 64 on N64. Shigeru Miyamoto wouldn't say that, though: he's a big fan and is upset the series has...
