Director Irwin R is back again with yet another article; this time however instead of a Review he gives his impressions on the new Starfox Zero game Announced at E3 this year. Take a look.

In this year Nintendo's 2015 E3 Conference, our beloved Nintendo has FINALLY revealed a new StarFox game for the WiiU, titled StarFox Zero. It has been eight years since we haven’t seen the continuing StarFox franchise ever since Starfox Command, which was released for the Nintendo DS on August 28, 2006 (not counting the re-reimage of the Starfox 64 for the Nintendo 3DS that came out on September 09, 2011). There are so far a total of six titles…well technically seven… (including the non-release of StarFox 2 which was cleaned, translated and released as a ROM file)…:


StarFox (SNES) 1993

StarFox 2 (ROM file/SNES Emulator) 1994

StarFox 64 (Nintendo 64) 1997

StarFox Adventures (Game Cube) 2002

StarFox Assault (Game Cube) 2005

StarFox Command (Nintendo DS) 2006

StarFox 64: Re-image (Nintendo 3DS) 2011

…that we’ve played. But today, we are finally seeing the next chapter on the new….StarFox Zero.

StarFox Zero……………………………um…………………………………………………er…………………………………………………………….DO A BARREL ROLL?...................................*sighs*…………………………




I’m sorry, but when I saw the trailer, my hopes just seriously dropped. I know it was a trailer, and a game that is finally coming out for the new gen Nintendo consol. Even though we had never seen a StarFox game on the Wii, I actually had “high” expectations for this title. What I’m seeing right now, what “we” are seeing, is a re-hash of the N64 3DS image, no hard core fighting, very little action and lots of gameplay with that garbage piece of shit gamepad. Even though I don’t own a Nintendo WiiU, my hopes still fail to do so in buying one. There was absolutely no feel, no excitement, no interest in its mechanics, what the story is, who’s the new villain and so on. Yeah they showed some new fewtures with the Arwing transforming into various mobile formations…but once again it’s about holding that crappy WiiU pad (which I severely hate so much, the most piece of shit innovative product in Nintendo history, which caused their WiiU system to fail big time financially and in game development). Hopefully they will have the use of the WiiU classic controller for those who are sadly going to buy this game. I know that its in its early production, and maybe it’ll change and give us another side of view with an updated gameplay later this year, still, I am not felling it at all.


What’s wrong here? I think they are lacking creativity big time, I mean we are talking eight fucking years……..EIGHT FUCKING YEARS!!!!!!......... since the last StrarFox game, and all they have given us is this cheesy boring ass comeback?!?! I mean cooooooome on. In the past we have seen many changes throughout when StarFox first came out on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, introducing its debut of the Super FX chip (need I tell you, the SNES version is the only title I will always love, unless Nintendo surprises me with a better StarFox title that can beat the SNES version…but no, most likely not.)

Then, in 1997, StarFox 64 come out on 64bit, 3D rendered models, with voice-overs, pretty much an upgraded version of from the SNES title. Hated the music, very annoying.

Cleared the game, but didn’t like it. But this was the game that everybody liked somehow…I just cant see why….

In 2002, Nintendo came out with StarFox Adventures for the Game Cube… the most garbage game I ever seen. Krystal was bitch, and there was barley any Arwing battle, except at the end when your facing Andross. Story was lame.

In 2005, Nintendo then finally came out something different with StarFox, different enemy and different gameplay with StarFox Assault. It was an okay game. I think Namco/Bandai did a good job with the game design and gameplay.

In 2006, Nintendo came out with, as I would like to call it, a StarFox 2 re-hash….StarFox Command. This game indeed is a tribute to StarFox 2, with modern DS graphics and storyline that takes place after StarFox Assault.

So, in conclusion…..am I really looking forward to StarFox Zero? Nope. Is the story going to be interesting of what they’ve shown us so far and the way its steering towards this generation? Nope. Has Miyamoto put the efforts with this product so far? By the looks of it…..nope. I suggest they scrap this immediately and just focus on the StarFox title for the next gen Nintendo NX, its useless to bring it out on the WiiU.


LoL…I rather play the new Metroid Prime: Federation Force then StarFox Zero….looooool (sarcastic laugh). Speaking of Metroid Prime: Federation Force, I can’t believe there’s already over 12,000-signed petition by the fans to cancel the game production. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL:

Nintendo's StarFox Zero debut at E3 2015 was indeed a disappointment....except for Mario Maker "grin emoticon."

This is….. the I.R Report.
