Star Fox Forum  /  Hey guys :D

Thought I'd make a thread and see we can get together a group of people and talk about Starfox! Seems to be one of the more underplayed games for speedrunning, but I find it very fun. What's makes you guys enjoy running it?

I know this is old but I'm gonna answer anyway cuz the Star Fox forum needs more love.

I enjoy running Star Fox for a number of reasons:

1. It's a fairly short game. Being my first speed running game I'm glad I picked one that doesn't go longer than 30 minutes. It makes it easier to work with and the stakes aren't as high with having to reset.

2. I LOVE the soundtrack. I don't think I could run a game if I didn't love the soundtrack. I don't want to listen to other music while I run, I want to listen to the game music/sfx. Star Fox is one of the best soundtracks on the SNES so for me it never gets old. I still hum the songs all the time when I'm running, and I know other runners that do too!

3. No Voice Actors. If I were running Star Fox 64, I imagine I'd go crazy after a while listening to those ridiculous voices giving me the same tips and taunts all the time. With this one however, it's just "Berdabumbadabum". I can live with that.

4. It's FUN!! Playing this game casually was fun enough but playing it in the speed running sense really takes it to a new level of intensity. There's something really satisfying about flying through a slew of obstacles, dodging them all perfectly and even throwing in a barrel roll or two just to look cool, all the while holding down the boosters for ultimate speed. Feels Good Man.

I'm sure there's more I could add but those are the main points.

All those points I completely agree on lol. Couldn't have said it better myself. I also really like the simplicity of the game, yet due to the lag and how weird the game is programmed... it has proved to be way more in depth than I first thought.

You know, #3 is actually a huuuuge point. I doubt very much I could ever try to speedrun Star Fox 64 because of the voice acting. And a lot of it is fairly cheesy too, which makes it even worse, lol.
