    First off, I’m not a huge Star Fox fan. I enjoy the games, but they have never been top tier to me.
    But I gotta say, the more I see of this, the more I am liking it. Looks like fun, I like that it doesn’t seem to be on rails as much as it used to.


    Can I control the R-wing with no motion controls? If so then yes I am sold.

    Off topic:
    Treehouse live stream is up for day 3.

    I ordered Bayonetta 2 today, so time to see what Platinum is all about.
    I think Vanquish was also a Platinum game, and I really liked that game

      Hope you enjoy it. I played through it pretty quick, it’s worth playing, but I actually think that W101 is a better game personally.

      Damn, did it again, here comes the hate lol.

      • Kidking17

        W101 huh? Might get it to give it a try, after Bayonetta 2 I was thinking about getting Donkey Kong, but I’ll consider that game as well. Also Hyrule Warrios but that game is a Maybe because I find the Warriors style of game too repetitive, but the game looks cool PLUS ZELDA lol.

        • Mythosa

          Honestly, I would say you need to get all those games lol.
          I have put in far more time into Hyrule Warriors than any of the other 3 games. I didn’t dig that style of game before HW either.
          You really can’t go too wrong with any of the games you mentioned. I would say that Bayo 2 and W101 are actually the two games mentioned that people might not like as much because they appeal to a certain gamer that enjoys a certain genre. But if someone is unfamiliar with them, they should try them.
          W101 has a demo on the eshop still I think.

            Reading you guys talk I think I’ll get the W101 after I beat Bayonetta 1&2. Should be fun!

        No one can hate you, anyone who finished W101 and Bayo 2 probably compared those endings and saw a clear winner.
        Plus the scaling is better.

          I like the gameplay of Bayonetta 2 better, but the story and humor of The Wonderful 101 was better.

        I don’t want to pick, I love them both!

        • Mythosa

          Nothing wrong with that 😀
