First of all I'd like to start this blog off with a completely unnecessary video, that I have just finished watching. It's not recommended for impressionable minors, American citizens, Jack Thompson, or (apparently) African Americans. Or anyone honestly...don't click on it.
Now it's time for the bulk of my post!
Some back story:
When I was ten years old I loved Star Fox 64. I'd sit and beat it, then beat it again, then beat it again. The different paths you could take coupled with the beautiful graphics completely took me over. Granted, this wasn't my first Star Fox game. I used to play the original with my father before I even knew what death meant, or why it kept flashing the "Game Over" picture.
Eventually my obsession with furries in space cost my mother twenty dollars in late fees. When this happened, not only did my ass get spanked, but I also wouldn't get to play Star Fox 64 for nine years.
I had completely forgotten about the game, but more importantly, I had completely forgotten about my Wii's Virtual Console.
And the fact that it just might contain Star Fox 64.
And that I had 1000 Wii Points lying around.
I found it, bought it, played it, and loved it.
It's a fantastic break from the monotony of recent "next-gen" games, and a game that doesn't try anything but to be fun. Anyone who hasn't tried it and owns a Wii ought to give it a run. Can't be any worse than Generic Brown Shooter 8: The Coming of the Stereotypical Plot Twist: Epic Addition
