    I thought I may’ve been the only person who remembers that Cake song… thanks Ryan!

    Please increase the game volume from 1% to 25% or so. Or at least 10%. You literally hear *nothing* from the game anymore. It’s very frustrating, especially when you make comments about how great the music is and we just hear silence.

      I’ve been saying this for a while too. J&mm and M&b, they really need to increase the volume a bit.

    I’m somewhat of a StarFox snes pro and the difficulty leap from route 1 to 3 is substantial. You definitely need to master 1 and 2 before 3. Also, ‘barrel rolls’ is really just a random popularization of a sf64 line. Sf64 had an incredible amount of catchy quotes and that’s probably why the game likely ended up with memes.

      I thought the control in Starfox Zero were nice (not great) but was cheap anyway. It’s so short, skinny and low on content that they just bundled it with GUARD. Zero doesn’t even have multiple endings. Disappointing.

    • December 30, 2016 at 5:17 pm

      I never managed to finish route 3 but most of the time I can finish route 1 and 2 without a problem. About Zero I enjoyed the controls but the game needed more content, some more stages and endings would be a huge improvement, some stages are really fun and some are mediocre, in the end it looked like if they had put some more effort at it it could have been a great game.

      • December 30, 2016 at 5:23 pm

        Yeah… It’s frustrating really. Also, the Zoness stage with the gyrowing (chopper) was the worst for me

      • December 30, 2016 at 7:44 pm

        Yeah, Zoness was really the worst, if they had put more enemies at that stage it would be a lot better, most of the time you’re just navigating with just a few things to shoot, it’s slow and boring. Now titania with the landmaster was my favorite so far (I still haven’t opened all stages), it’s a beautiful stage, fast and fun to play.

    Argonaut made another game also with the FX chip, Vortex. But you guys should try STAR BLADE. It’s a seriously forgotten classic and Star Fox snes is kind of a copy of that game.

    I’m probably alone in this, but I’d love to see you do a video on After Dark (the flying toasters you mentioned, along with all the other modules) even though they don’t really contain gameplay.

    you guys missed the black hole… =(

      To be fair, it’s pretty hard to get to. Didn’t figure out how to get there, until much later. If you asked me now how to find it, I wouldn’t be able to remember. Been that long since I’ve played it last!

    Eeeehhh, technically! -An ‘actual’ barrel roll IS useful in combat 😉 What Star Fox calls a barrel roll is actually an aileron roll. A ‘real’ barrel roll involves a corkscrew type motion that can be used to get behind an enemy aircraft.

    Ganon is Smash bros Brawl and Smash WiiU/3DS. He’s Ganondorf’s Final Smash. You transform into Ganon as seen in Twilight Princess and control him for a limited time.

    Great vid, guys. I kind wished that this had been a James and Mike vid… but I’ll take what I can get! 🙂 Anyhoo, the phrase “Do a barrel roll” was initially used in Star Fox 64, on the beginning level, by Slippy(to Fox, I believe). It’s been a staple of the franchise, ever since!

    Warhawk is the PS1 game you were thinking about. It had Mark Hamill in it also. I loved that game.

      Warhawk is a great game! I don’t remember Mark Hamill in it, though…just some hilarious nobody actors! I do remember Hamill in at least one of the Wing Commander games however (3?)

        Mark Hamill was in Wing Commander 3 and 4 and also the cartoon, Wing Commander Academy (along with Thomas F. Wilson).

    I know you probably got a list of games you guys need to get to, but Captain Skyhawk for NES should be on it. I remember that being a big deal when it released, and I played the shit outta that.

    Did anyone else think fox says “Damage Check! Damage Check!”, Slippy says “Didn’t Hit! Didn’t Hit” and Falco says “Not Even Damaged”? To me, it matches the idea of Fox asking his team for a damage report after a level.

    I think you guys should play Starfox 64 – it is by far the best in this style of games plus you get to see where do a barrel roll came from and a whole host of other great one liners
