    It seems that Peppy knows what he is talking about

    We don't claim to be experts in astrophysics here at Nintendo Life, but clearly some of the manoeuvres in Star Fox 64 3D might be pushing the boundaries of realism. The boffins over at the PBS Space Time YouTube channel have given Peppy's command to "DO A BARREL ROLL" some thought and have deemed...

  • Nintendo 64x64 Lylat Wars

    Do a barrel roll!

    Nintendo: excellent decision. Ditch Starwing 2 and go for a next-gen sequel. Lylat Wars delivers on many fronts. Corneria is a perfect opener - capturing Starwing’s feel yet graphically upgraded. From then on levels are superbly varied: corridor levels, dogfights, numerous routes to Venom based on mission success. Not just a...

  • 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...

    Dylan Cuthbert reveals the magic of working with Nintendo

    Star Fox is one of the Super Nintendo's most enduring classics, thanks largely to its ground-breaking use of 3D and tight, immserise gameplay. However, had Dylan Cuthbert — one of the game's key developers — had his way, it might have turned out very differently; something he now admits...

    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...
